INTRO TO GHOSTHUNTING:: You can try to contact a ghost hunting group near you. Ghost hunting has become very popular recently and there are an estimated 270 paranormal investigation groups in Tennessee alone! Here is a list of some ghost hunting groups in the USA.When you set out to select a ghost hunting group, be sure you check them all out so that you choose the right group. You’ll want to select a group with people that are really into investigating and want to do it as often as possible. A lot of people just want the title “Ghost Hunter” or “Paranormal Investigator” but don’t want to do the work involved to earn the title. You’ll want to be with people that will follow a set of rules or guidelines, and who won’t immediately claim that every noise they hear can only be explained as paranormal activity. I’ve seen a lot of photos of things like dashboard lights, breath in cold temperatures, and tree branches and the person that took it claims it’s a ghost. Those kind of people are the type that make real paranormal investigators look bad.**************************Research as much as you can. Go to sites and read about other investigators experiments. Ghost hunting is not an exact science, so don’t be afraid to try new things.Practice good protocol and standards when you are ghost hunting.Document everything! Get the best possible equipment you can afford and make sure it’s a9312354126ll working properly before you start your investigation. Here are some of the basic things you’ll need:a 35 mm camera with at least 400 speed film (Higher speed is better for low light)a good flashlight with extra batteriesa notepad and penLook online or ask people you know about possible places to investigate. You can check cemeteries, old buildings & old homes but be sure to get permission first! Remember: Never Trespass! Always get permission before entering private property or you could be the next ghost that someone is investigating!Different Types of HauntingsBelow are a few different types of hauntings that will explain most hauntings and the reasons they occur:Basic HauntingsA usual “haunting” is any unexplainable or Paranormal phenomena in any given location. But does this always mean that we’re talking about an actual ghost? Nope, it doesn’t–at least not all the time (but we’ll get to that later).Let’s take a look at what makes ghost hunting a tricky sport. Hauntings occur with no regularity and for no particular reason. Some weird stuff may manifest on occasion or even continually for a few days or hundreds of years; others may only occur on certain anniversaries; and others may be totally random.It is generally assumed that hauntings involve apparitions, or ghosts, of the deceased. In fact, apparitions are seldom seen. Most hauntings involve noises like footsteps, a tapping or knocking sound, strange smells, sensations like the cold prickling of the skin, cold breezes, and the feeling of being touched by an invisible hand. Other hauntings involve poltergeist-like activity such as solid objects being moved, broken glass, doors that open and close by themselves, and manipulation of lights and electrical devices.People who have been to or investigated some haunted locations reported overwhelming emotions, including anger & fear. Most times this is mistakenly referred to as “evil” or “demonic.” Other places seem to involve friendly, or at least harmless, emotions.PoltergeistsPoltergeists are probably the most misunderstood form of hauntings. The actual definition for the word “poltergeist” is “noisy ghost” in German. Paranormal investigators in the past  believed that poltergeists were causing the strange occurrences reported in so-called haunted houses. It was assumed that an outside force caused the things that occurred in a house that was “haunted” by a poltergeist. But that is no longer the case.A variety of phenomena can be connected to poltergeist activity: knocking and tapping sounds, noises with no visible cause, disturbance of stationary objects like household items and furniture, doors slamming, lights turning on and off, fires breaking out, and much more. Today, researchers think that while the activity is certainly paranormal, it has nothing to do with ghosts.You may be surprised by who’s really causing the activity, however. The widely accepted theory behind poltergeist phenomena in the ghost hunting world is that it’s usually caused by a person. This person is usually an adolescent girl who is going through an emotionally troubled time. The theory is that this person may be unconsciously manipulating the items in the house by psycho kinesis, which the power to move things by energy generated in the brain.Kinetic energy remains unexplained, but even mainstream scientists are starting to admit that it may exist. It is unknown why this energy appears in puberty-age girls, but it has been documented. When the activity begins to occur, the girl is usually in the middle of emotional or sexual angst. It is also possible for young boys, and even adults, to manifest this odd ability. The majority have no idea they’re causing the activity.If you or someone you know is freaked out by this kind of experience, it is always better to consult a competent mental health practitioner. Of course, not all hauntings can be so easily explained. In some cases, people aren’t the cause of the situation. Sometimes it’s possible that the source of the activity is an intelligent spirit. These entities try to make their presence known by moving objects. If this is the case, then it’s time to think about moving.Residual HauntingsThis type of haunting is much more common than people realize in the ghost hunting world. But we have to remember not to confuse this type of phenomena with an “intelligent” haunting, because, while it is interesting and unexplained, ghosts may not be the cause.The easiest way to explain this type of haunting is to compare it to an old film loop. Imagine an old movie tape is stuck in the VCR and the same clip keeps repeating itself. In locations where these hauntings take place, a powerful event or a series of events may be imprinted on the atmosphere. It can then suddenly pop up and play itself at random. But it’s not necessarily visual; they are often replayed as unexplained sounds. The famous “phantom footsteps” reported in many haunted locations are a perfect example of this.How does this kind of thing happen? The sounds and images are related to traumatic events that took place at the location, causing some sort of disturbance sometimes called a “psychic impression.” This is the reason why so many battlefields have become famous for their hauntings over the years. In other situations, the images have been created by events or actions that were repeated, which caused an impression. Reputedly, that is why so many haunted staircases exist, because of the number of times people go up and down them and the amount of energy that is expended in doing so.These kinds of haunted places act as giant storage batteries, saving up the impressions of sights and sounds from the past. As time goes by, these impressions appear again as if the VCR had been turned on. While apparitions are most commonly connected to these types of hauntings, much of the activity may be in the form of sounds, and even smells.Portal HauntingsThe idea of a “portal” or a “doorway” to another dimension is not a new one–though it may be a wild one in ghost hunting terms. These doorways may provide access for entities to enter our world. They may be the spirits of people who’ve died, or they could be something else altogether–perhaps otherworldly beings from another dimension? Hmmm…One of the most common locations for these “doorways” seems to be in cemeteries. As a rule, most cemeteries are not haunted, but recently, ghost hunters have collected dozens of anomalous photographs taken in graveyards. There seems to be no explanation why many of these cemeteries would become haunted unless they provide access for spirits, or entities, to pass from one world to the next.It is possible that these sites were “haunted” long before a cemetery was located there. It is also possible that the psychic draw of the area was what caused our ancestors to locate a cemetery there in the first place. Native Americans chose their burial grounds in this manner, although they did it consciously. They found a place to bury and honor the dead that they felt was more closely connected to the next world.Traditional or Intelligent HauntingsThis type of haunting is perhaps the most widely accepted kind of ghostly activity, and most exciting while ghost hunting, although it’s not as common as you might think. Here, the spirit or entity involved is an “intelligent” presence in a haunted location. It is there because of a connection to the site or to the people in the location. This ghost is best (and most simply) described as the personality of a person who once lived and who has stayed behind in our world instead of passing over to the other side.This sometimes happens in the case of a murder, traumatic event or unfinished business. At the time of death, the spirit refuses to pass over because of these events. The spirits often linger because of emotions that tie them to the earth, from anger to love. Or perhaps the person does not pass not because they couldn’t, but because they did not want to. In other cases, there is the chance the spirit does not even realize they are dead (like Patrick Swayze in “Ghost”. This can occur when the death is sudden.These spirits are made up of the energy that once made up the personality of a living person. These intelligent spirits are not evil or demonic, as some would have you believe. Spirits are simply human personalities, or souls, and if the spirit was a kind and caring person in life, the spirit will most likely be in death. On the other hand, angry and cruel people will also keep those same nasty qualities as spirits. These negative spirits can be frightening, especially to people not trained in the paranormal. In very rare cases they have been able to harm the living, but that is generally not the case. It is much more common to hear of an encounter with a benevolent spirit than with a negative one. That’s a relief, isn’t it?I will post more when I get more time to write. For now, this should get you started.Happy Ghost Hunting!Posted in Ghost Hunting 101 Tagged anomalous photographs, burial grounds, demonic, evil, Ghost, Ghost Hunters, Ghost hunting, ghost hunting group, ghostly activity, haunted, haunted locations, haunted places, hauntings, Intelligent Hauntings, intelligent spirit, Kinetic energy, murder, paranormal, paranormal activity, paranormal investigation, paranormal investigation groups, paranormal investigation groups in Tennessee, Paranormal Investigator, Paranormal phenomena, phenomena, poltergeist activity, poltergeist phenomena, Poltergeists, Portal Hauntings, psychic impression, psycho kinesis, Residual Hauntings,traumatic eventJune 16, 20136:04 pm

  • Hells Bells (Lyrics)5:17
APPARITIONS: The supernatural appearance of a deceased person or animal.  It is often too distant to be in the normal range of a persons view and is uncommon to see an appearance.  A full bodied apparition shows the entire body of an animal or person.  A partial bodied apparition are shown more often but only show part of a body such as; torso or arms.  They often appear as white (or various shades of white/gray) or solid black. Usually apparitions can appear to hover in the air. It is rare that apparitions show their legs or feet.AUTOMATIC WRITING: The ability to write intelligible messages without conscious control of what is being written. Often used in conjunction with trying to channel a spirit or entity into yourself. This can be a very dangerous method! As with all channeling methods (Ouija boards, crystals, etc.) you are opening a door way and have no control over who or what may come through, and no way to be sure to make it leave and "close the door".COLD SPOT: A small, defined area of intense cold (at least 10 degrees colder than the surrounding area) that can not readily be explained by other natural or mechanical causes (e.g. air conditioning, a drafty window, ice or snow). In paranormal research the prevailing theory is that when an entity is trying to manifest itself it draws on many sources of energy. One of those sources is the heat energy in the air. As the entity draws the heat out of the air the area in that specific immediate location becomes unusually cold. See our article on Paranormal Temperature Theory.CLAIRAUDIENCE: The ability to hear things not audible within normal hearing ranges. This is an example of Extra sensory perception. (ESP) It includes the audible perception of ghosts, spirits, and those who are on the astral realm. Clairaudience is essentially the ability of hearing the paranormal as opposed to seeing it.DEBUNK (DEBUNKING EVIDENCE or PARANORMAL ACTIVITY): Reported paranormal evidence or paranormal activity is said to be "debunked" when a simple, logical and non-paranormal explanation can account for the reported event(s). Even if the activity is genuinely paranormal, if a simple and reasonable explanation can also be applied, because of this ambiguity a prudent paranormal investigator has to side with the debunking explanation until further evidence of paranormal activity can be obtained. Care has to be used since it is easy to be skeptical of any report or evidence. Usually if the non-paranormal explanation is complex or requires many assumptions it may be over analyzing the situation. See our article on Occam's Razor and the Paranormal Investigator.DEMON: According to the Catholic faith demons are angels that were cast out of Heaven by G-d during the rebellion against G-d lead by Lucifer. There are several levels or hierarchies of demons, each with different powers. Other faiths may have different concepts of what demons are.DEMONIC HAUNTING: A haunting by a nonhuman entity. Can be very dramatic, even violent. Demonic hauntings often start out with subtle and relatively simple paranormal activity, then quickly increase to stronger activity. Most often effects people or families that are already under great personal stress from conditions such as alcohol or drug use, psychological or emotional problems, family or marital problems, etc. It is believed the nonhuman entity takes advantage of people in such weaken psychological and emotional condition. Persons who believe they and/or their families are the subject of a demonic haunting should immediately seek both professional paranormal assistance and counseling help. Click Here to read more about demonic hauntings.DEMONOLOGIST: A person who actively pursues demons and other nonhuman entitles both for study and to help people rid them from their lives. Usually demonologists are very religious people as they believe strongly that only faith has the power to combat a demon. They are also usually schooled and or experienced in the field of psychology and mental health. IMPORTANT: Active pursuit of demons and demonology is not something to be tried for fun or kicks. Serious injury - both physical and mental - can occur! Please read out article on Demonology 101.DOWSING (aka DIVINING): The ability to use a pair of rods (often metal) held in the hands to locate objects, most commonly water. A Y-shaped tree branch can also be used fro finding water. In the paranormal investigation field Dowsing Rods are sometimes used to locate energy sources that could be paranormal in nature.ECHOLALIA: A professional clinical word that means to repeat back what you hear. As applied to the paranormal field it means when a ghost or spirit repeats back something you have just said in order to show they are there and are trying to communicate with you. The words repeated back could be EVP questions or just casual conversation. It is not clear why an entity might repeat back your words rather than respond on their own. Perhaps it is easier/simply for an entity to repeat what it has heard rather than form new words.ECTOPLASM: The substance left behind when an entity tries to manifest itself. Although still largely theoretical (none has yet been collected for chemical analysis) it has been photographed on many occasions. Ectoplasm often appears in photographs as a thick white mist or smoke in nearly straight lines. Vapor and humidity is often mistaken for ectoplasm. It is rarely seen with the naked eye. It can, however, be felt as a dense area of cobweb-like strands.EMF - Electro Magnetic Field: In it's natural form it is the natural electric field (sometimes thought of an an aurora) that is generated by all living things and many inanimate objects such as metals and certain minerals. EMF is also generated by man-made electric sources such as lights, radios and wires. In paranormal investigations the theory is that entities are largely composed of energy which may be electrically based. By trying to detect EMF it may be possible to locate an otherwise unseen entity. The stronger the EMF detected the potential greater the paranormal phenomena. See our article on EMF Theory.EMPATHS - EMPATHIC ABILITIES: Some people are sensitive to the typically stronger feelings a paranormal entity gives off. They may also be able to see people and events that have occurred years in the past at a given locations. While feelings are hard to confirm or deny, when recorded along with other paranormal evidence that can be documented, empathic ability can be a helpful investigation tool.ENTITY: A generic all-encompassing term used to describe a paranormal object/being that is presumed to be a ghost or spirit. Since no one is yet 100% sure what paranormal objects really are the term "entity" is used as a pronoun to include any and all possible things such as ghosts, spirits, poltergeists, non-human spirits etc.EVP - Electronic Voice Phenomena: The hearing of unexplainable voices during the playback of a recording made on a electronic recoding device. The voices can not be readily identified as persons speaking or events (mechanical sounds, background noise etc) that took place while the record was being performed. Can be encountered on both tape and digital recorders. Sometimes also found on video recorders (not film however). See our articles on EVP theory and classification.FEAR CAGE: A term used to describe a confined area such as a walk in closet, hallway or basement with very high EMF readings. The combination of being close and confined with in an area of strong EMF often brings out extremely great feelings of uneasiness, anxiety, paranoia and/or uncontrollable fear. When this occurs the best thing is to quickly and calmly leave the area and go to a more open area with lower EMF.GHOST: A spirit or shade of a dead person believed to haunt people or previous habitats/locations.  The spirit remains of a living being, strongly attached to the living realm by some form of emotional force.  Often ghosts do not realize that they are in fact dead.  Others live out the routine of the day they died, and continue this in a cycle.  Other ghosts interact with everyday life of the living.HALF REAL OBJECTIVE: When you perceive nothing subjectively but obtain objective documentation.HALF REAL SUBJECTIVE: When you subjectively perceive something that was not documented via objective means.IMPRINT (IMPRINTING): It is theorized that events and strong feelings/emotions can leave a copy or record of themselves on places (tunnels, rooms, fields etc) and objects (furniture, buildings, personal affects etc). Most notably this occurs when a sudden and violent death occurs such as a powerful accident, a murder or other crime, a war or battle area etc. The energy that is left can result in a non-intelligent haunting, usually a residual haunting. In these cases people often report seeing and hearing the same thing over and over like a tape playing, rewinding and playing again. Sometimes the event seems to be recorded on the specific location rather than a building, room or object. There have been cases reported where an imprint haunting has occurred in a building, the building is later totally demolished and a new one built (or the area just left vacant) but the haunting still continues. In the situation of imprinting on an object the haunting can follow the object through several owners. This is often reported with items purchased at a yard sale or flea market.IR (INFRARED): Infrared light is light from the lower end (long  wave length/low frequency) of the electromagnetic spectrum (between the visible light spectrum and microwaves). IR light is not visible to the naked human eye without the use of special equipment. IR is not to be confused with thermal imaging. While IR and thermal energy are both on the short end of the electromagnetic spectrum they are not the same thing. There is evidence that ghosts/spirits and other paranormal entities may be more susceptible to being viewed (including video and image photography) using the IR light spectrum. IR sensors are also often used for measuring temperature and detecting movement.  Click here to read our article about using alternate light spectrums for paranormal investigations.KINETIC ENERGY: Energy needed to force an object at rest into motion.  Objects in motion have kinetic energy. Energy is neither created nor destroyed.  As the kinetic energy diminishes it changes into potential energy.LEY LINES (aka LEY): The theoretical lines that can be drawn to connect ancient (and some modern) sites across a country, even around the world. The term "Ley Line" ("Ley" being a Saxon word meaning meadow or cleared strip of ground) was first coined by Alfred Watkins in the early 1920's. He noticed that many ancient and prehistoric structures (e.g. mounds, stone circles, temples, river crossings, ceremonial hilltops, etc.) could be connected by straight lines. Often these lines exactly fit compass directions, and sometimes at certain times of the year match up with star alignments. He also noticed that many of these lines intersect and where they intersect are significant other structures such as churches, temples, and burial grounds. Some people believe Ley Lines also follow the natural magnetic forces of the Earth and therefore are very powerful for spiritual and mystic activity. Ley lines are also known as corpse ways, church paths, church lines, and coffin lines."LIGHTS OUT" INVESTIGATION: A paranormal investigation, usually conducted indoors and at night, where all the light sources  and other electronic devices in the building have been turned off.  The equipment used for paranormal investigations is typically more sensitive at night and in the dark. Having lights off reduces the possibility of false or misleading evidence caused by reflections and glares.LIVING GHOST: The manifestation of a ghost or entity, usually a living close family member or friend, that appears a long distance (sometimes hundreds or event thousands of miles away!). This event usually coincides when the other person (the one manifesting) is facing an immediate great stress or life-threatening danger. Examples include a aircraft pilot or crew flying through a storm, a soldier on the battle field, an automobile driver or passenger during a sever accident, etc. Some believe this is related to astral projection and out-of-the-body experiences. This phenomena is related to the moment of mortality manifestation.LOST TIME: With paranormal ghost/spirit activity it is possible that a small concentrated area of high paranormal activity may briefly alter the physical environment (see Warp) such that time slows down or stops altogether. For example, a person in such an effected area may be in the area for 20 minutes as measured by a clock outside the area. But the person's watch only shows them in the area for 15 minutes. What happened to the 5 minutes difference?  This phenomena is similar to what sometimes in reported UFO cases.MANIFEST or MANIFESTATION: The act of an entity trying to make it self appear in our world. Entities are believed to exist mainly as energy with no physical form. When an entity is trying to make itself appear or make it's presence known in our world it is said to be manifesting itself; trying to make itself into some form of physical state.MIST: An energy field that looks like a cloud or haze but has a paranormal ectoplasm substance.  There may or may not be any particular shape, color (typically white or light colored), thickness, or consistency.MOMENT OF MORTALITY: A ghostly manifestation that occurs when someone is at the exact moment of their death. A ghost, spirit or other apparition appears to a close friend or family member. Can happen over great distances (hundreds, even thousands, of miles away). This phenomena is similar to the living ghost and Death Bed Visions phenomena.NECROMANCY (NECROMANCE): The attempt to conjure, summon or raise the dead in order to learn secrets and insights from the spirits. Usually intended to gain personal advantage or fortune over others. The person who is trying to perform the necromancy process is called a Necromancer. This deals heavily into the unsavory realm of magic, spells, and dark/forbidden witchcraft rituals. Can also be attempted with Tarot cards and Ouija boards. Regardless of the process used, necromancy is highly dangerous from the point of view that you are opening a doorway and have no idea what thing may come through and into your life!NIGHT SHOT: A setting common on hand held video cameras. Originally it was a term used to describe the night vision (total darkness) recording capability of the Sony Handicam series of camcorders. This term has since become synonymous with meaning any night vision/total darkness video camera or recording device regardless of the manufacturer.  The night shot feature uses a built-in IR (infra red) illumination source. An external IR illuminator can often be attached for additional viewing range. Click Here to read our discussion of using alternate light spectrums for paranormal investigations.NONHUMAN or INHUMAN SPIRIT: An entity (ghost or spirit) that is not the result of a human person that once lived on Earth. This category also includes angels, demons, devils etc. It is not known exactly where these kinds of entities come from but it is reasonably well accepted by the paranormal community these spirits are not from people who had lived on Earth and have since died. Encounters with non-human spirits is rare and usually dramatic. Extra care should always be used if dealing with a potential inhuman spirit!ORB: Orbs appear to be a form of energy of an unknown origin. An orb can take different shapes. They can also be seen by the naked eye, but most of the time you only get orb sightings in photographs, and on video tape (VHS). They seem to defy gravity and change directions quickly. They seem to also twinkle. The presence of people make them react. They appear both indoors and outdoors. False orbs tend to be transparent and pale white, or blue. Real genuine orbs tend to appear dense or brighter on film. To increase the probability of you getting a photograph of a genuine orb, it is good to take the photograph at the same time as other unusual phenomenon are experienced, such as sharp changes in temperature, and increases in electromagnetic energy. In a genuine orb there is a nucleus.  It has concentric circles or bands within. It can be active in visible realm, but more active in infrared. They appear abundantly in supposed haunted locations. Drops of rain, specks of dust, insects, reflections, as well as many other things can be mistaken for orbs. Read our discussion of False Evidence.PARANORMAL: Events above the normal or everyday experiences. Events that can not be readily explained by known conventional reasons and/or commonly accepted science. Not to be confused with Supernatural that implies a deity explanation.POLTERGEIST: Term is German for "noisy ghost". It can be dependant on a certain individual or group of individuals. They usual make the biggest impact on physical objects. They tend to be temporary. In some instances a poltergeist can appear as the psychic extension of a person, usually most common in adolescent females. Tend to be mischievous and like to play pranks. More recently developed theories move away from ghost activity to the realm of spontaneous and unconscious (unintended) telekinesis.RESIDUAL HAUNTING: Non conscious and unintelligent (no thought or purposely actions), usually appear as person  but can sometimes be a group of people, and animal or any non living thing. An example is the famous "Flying Dutchman" legend. There are no interactions with observers. They stay in same location replaying the same event over and over usually on some rhythmic cycle or pattern (though what the pattern is can be hard to determine). Sometimes causing electrical environment interference to occur. Often compared to a video recording that automatically plays itself over and over.SHADOWS: (Shadow Beings, Shadow Entities) Shadows refer to the possible paranormal apparition which appears as a dark human-form manifestation. We say "possible" paranormal apparition since the true nature of this type of paranormal event is still unknown and the subject of much research. Click Here for more information about shadows.STREAK: An unusual line of light, often comet-like, that appears on photographs taken in potential paranormal activity areas. Happens with both 35mm film and digital cameras. Occasionally seen on video cameras and DVR units as well. Can often be the result of a shaky camera especially when using a digital camera.SUPERNATURAL: Events or happenings generally attributed to the will of a deity. Usually includes the concept of angels, demons/devils, and other G-d-like creatures.TELEKINESIS:  (Telekinetic power)  The ability to manipulate physical objects using the body’s static electrical charges. Chi is the Asian term for telekinesis. Psychic extension of the person transported through the electrical field surrounding the individual. More commonly known as a persons' ability to move object with just their mind and thoughts.TOUCHED:  The act of experiencing physical contact from a ghost, spirit or other paranormal entity. Can be as simple as a tug in your shirt or pressure on a part of your body to scratches, burns or being pushed/shoved. However, serious physical injury is very rare.ULTRAVIOLET (UV): Ultraviolet light is light from the upper end (long wave length/low frequency) of the electromagnetic spectrum. As with Infrared light, UV light is normally not visible to the naked human eye without the use of special viewing or photography equipment. Some paranormal investigators have experimented with using UV light to take video of ghosts and other paranormalentities. The results have been indeterminate. Other paranormal investigators have claimed UV light is an effective barrier to blockdemonic entities. Click here to read our article about using alternate light spectrums for paranormal investigations.VORTEX - Vortices, Vortexes: A concentrated yet brief area of high electromagnetic energy often found in photographs taken at paranormally active locations. The often appear as sold (opaque) white or silver tubes, rods, or elongated ovals. They can also appear to be braided like a rope or chain (care has to be take to ensure it is not a rope, chain, camera strap etc). A vortex is not an entity. However, some paranormal researchers believe a vortex is a momentary doorway or portal to another realm that allows entities and other paranormal phenomena to come into our world. Some researchers also believe vortexes are linked to the Earth's own electromagnetic field which at least in part help determine when these portals open/close. It is also believed that some locations are more prone to having active vortices due to the alignment of the Earth's magnetic field and local geological structure.WARP: Two possible meanings:Areas where conventional laws of physics can break down, linear time may not always apply. They can be locations infested with entities, imprints, and barrage of other paranormal activities. They may be unpredictable areas that can twist perceptions beyond the understanding of logic. Areas of paranormal activity so intense that time itself changes. Time may speed up, slow down (Lost Time) or briefly stop altogether. The area effected is very small and of short duration.WHITE NOISE: White noise is the random non-descript static sound produced by various electronic devices. The sound covers and combines all wavelengths and frequencies. In this way it is like the color white which is really a combination of all colors. Hence the name white noise – the combination of all sounds. Examples of common white noise sources are the radio or television static when set to an empty channel, the hum of an electric fan motor and the babbling sound of a fast moving stream or brook. Click here for our article that discuss using white noise for paranormal investigations.WHOLE REAL:  When you are able to document an experience both objectively and subjectively.  There are three different types of whole real:Type I: When the subjective and the objective appear at the same time.Type II: When the subjective and the objective appear at different times.Type III: A combination of types I and II when the subjective and objective match but additional information is documented on either side.

A Beginners Guide Conducting an EVP Session Conducting and EVP SessionThis is a short guide on how to conduct an EVP session Electronic Voice Phenomena, also referred to as “EVP” is in my opinion the most important tool when conducting a paranormal investigation. You may ask “How does an EVP session work?”. Because ghost hunting is not an exact science, no one is really sure how they work, or why but, they do. When conducting an EVP session, ask short questions: ‘Are you trapped here? What’s your name? What’s your favorite color? Why are you here? What year is it?’ Don’t speak too long, and be sure to pause between questions. Give the spirit time to respond. Ghosts are believed to communicate at a different frequency than us. According to experts, spirits communicate in what is called “white noise“. It’s not audible to humans, but voice recorders seem to have no trouble hearing it. I’m starting to think maybe the reason why we’re not always getting answers from spirits is because some paranormal investigators forget a very important fact: they’re spirits, but what creates a spirit? A person that has passed on to the after life . They ware once alive and had a heart beat, they could think, they could communicate with other people in a normal manor. They were alive. Now that they’re passed on to the afterlife, one of the biggest errors some investigators make is they treat them like a circus side-show. Talk to them as if they’re one of us, a guy you’re sitting with on a park bench passing time. If you communicate with them like some people, “How’d you die? Were you murdered?” These are touchy questions that you shouldn’t start with. Instead, try to form a bond with the entity. Talk to him or her as if they’re one of you. Begin by introducing yourself and maybe asking what their name is and then build up to the more personal questions. Forming a bond with a ghost may seem crazy, but it will help in getting more results. I’ve always followed the golden rule in ghost hunting, “Treat others the way you want to be treated…unless it’s demonic spirit, then you call a priest and run like hell Smilie: ;) ” So, off you go with a voice recorder in hand and a high hopes in mind, ready for your first EVP session! I’ll be posting more tutorials on ghost hunting for beginners over time, but take these suggestions as a starting point to build from. Thanks for reading!

Full Body Apparition Full body apparitions are very rare in the paranormal world, and an even more rare event is to capture one on film! A full body apparition is the manifestation of a spirit or ghost. Usually you will see the apparition as a mist or of grey or black smoke. Rarely though, they will appear as real as you or I. It is believed that the more real an apparition appears to be, the stronger the connection to the location it is seen. So if you see one in your house, and it looks just as solid as you or I, the chances are very likely that it is someone who lived there in the past or has some other very strong connection to that location. The official definition of an apparition is: Noun A ghost or ghostlike image of a person. The appearance of something remarkable or unexpected, typically an image of this type. This photo was taken by investigators from the paranormal investigation group based in Gettysburg, PA. called After Dark Investigations. In this picture we see what is believed to be a full body apparition. Notice on the shirt it appears to be blood stains. Could this be the ghost of a civil war soldier killed in the battle of Gettysburg? Judge for yourself!

It seems that no one uses a regular old 35mm cameras anymore due to the costs of film, developing the film and the ease of use of a digital camera. I myself also prefer digital when I’m out taking nature photos or photos of the family just because I can look at the picture immediately and decide if I need to take more or if the one I got is good enough. But, when ghost hunting with a camera it’s best to use a film camera so that if you do catch something, you have a negative to back up your results, and it’s less likely to be thought of as being altered in Photoshop. Here is a quick guide to ghost hunting with a camera for best results. 35mm film cameras: Walk around the location you’ll be investigating for at least 20 minutes before you ever start investigating. 35mm film cameras: I suggest using at least a 400 speed film but the higher the speed the sharper pictures you can take in low light settings. 400, 800 & 1600 speeds work the best. Black and White also works really well. 35mm film cameras: For experienced photographers, try using infrared film. This has had excellent results previously. Know whats in your shot. This way, when you review your pictures you don’t think a street light or a light reflection is an orb. Be sure to clean your camera’s lens as often as possible using a lens cleaner. Do not use a napkin or your shirt, as this could damage your lens. You should do this to reduce the risk of seeing the lens smudges in your photos and mistaking it for a ghostly mist. Never smoke in or around the location your investigating or you could mistake this for more ghostly mist in your photos, and you will only end up contaminating your photo evidence. Move slowly in the areas you’re investigating so that you reduce the risk of kicking up a bunch of dust in the area. This is also a good way of contaminating your photos and thinking a piece of dust is an orb. If you or anyone else in your group has long hair, be sure to pull it back or tuck it under a hat to eliminate the chance of getting false photos. Skeptics will just have more ammo to use to discredit your evidence. Detach any straps on your cameras as this can sometimes appear to be a vortex. Don’t bother using your camera viewfinder, it will most likely be dark in the area and you won’t see anything anyway. Instead, hold the camera in front of you and aim at your target area. This will also help if it’s cold in the location by keeping your camera away from your breath and lessening the chance of seeing your breath in the picture and mistaking it for ghost mist. Make a mental note of reflective surfaces. When your flash goes off and reflects off of a glass or mirror it can look like an orb or other anomaly. Make note of street lights and any other light source that may appear on the film. Be sure that only one person it’s taking photos at a time. This can reduce the risk of getting double flash or other reflections that will later be mistaken as evidence. Also, never use a flash if anyone in your group happens to be using a night vision scope of any kind. If they’re looking through the night vision scope when your flash goes off it can cause serious eye damage. Take as many photos as possible. Take multiple pictures of one area so that you have comparison photos. This way, if you get something in the first photo, and it’s not there in the second or third photo, it’s more likely to be ghostly evidence. A lot of people have the ability to feel when they’re in the presence of a spirit. If you or anyone in your group feels this, immediately start snapping off photos. Always trust your instincts. Take photos of your equipment if you start to get readings. This will help to back up your claims later when questioned by a skeptic. On average, you may only get 1 or 2 pictures with questionable evidence for every 40 or so that you take, this is not unusual at all, so don’t give up after taking 5 or 6 photos and not capturing anything in your photos. There is no need to have your film developed at some high dollar photography store. In fact, it may be better to get it done at Wal-Mart or another regular place so that skeptics can’t claim that you paid extra to have your “ghost” super imposed on the film. Most importantly, have fun! When ghost hunting with a camera you may not get any results, but that IS normal. Not every location that is claimed to be haunted will actually turn up positive results. Keep trying different locations, different camera settings different films. Ghost hunting is not an exact science, so you have to try different things until you get the results you have been hoping for!

You can try to contact a ghost hunting group near you. Ghost hunting has become very popular recently and there are an estimated 270 paranormal investigation groups in Tennessee alone! Here is a list of some ghost hunting groups in the USA. When you set out to select a ghost hunting group, be sure you check them all out so that you choose the right group. You’ll want to select a group with people that are really into investigating and want to do it as often as possible. A lot of people just want the title “Ghost Hunter” or “Paranormal Investigator” but don’t want to do the work involved to earn the title. You’ll want to be with people that will follow a set of rules or guidelines, and who won’t immediately claim that every noise they hear can only be explained as paranormal activity. I’ve seen a lot of photos of things like dashboard lights, breath in cold temperatures, and tree branches and the person that took it claims it’s a ghost. Those kind of people are the type that make real paranormal investigators look bad. ************************** Research as much as you can. Go to sites and read about other investigators experiments. Ghost hunting is not an exact science, so don’t be afraid to try new things. Practice good protocol and standards when you are ghost hunting. Document everything! Get the best possible equipment you can afford and make sure it’s all working properly before you start your investigation. Here are some of the basic things you’ll need: a 35 mm camera with at least 400 speed film (Higher speed is better for low light) a good flashlight with extra batteries a notepad and pen Look online or ask people you know about possible places to investigate. You can check cemeteries, old buildings & old homes but be sure to get permission first! Remember: Never Trespass! Always get permission before entering private property or you could be the next ghost that someone is investigating! Different Types of Hauntings Below are a few different types of hauntings that will explain most hauntings and the reasons they occur: Basic Hauntings A usual “haunting” is any unexplainable or Paranormal phenomena in any given location. But does this always mean that we’re talking about an actual ghost? Nope, it doesn’t–at least not all the time (but we’ll get to that later). Let’s take a look at what makes ghost hunting a tricky sport. Hauntings occur with no regularity and for no particular reason. Some weird stuff may manifest on occasion or even continually for a few days or hundreds of years; others may only occur on certain anniversaries; and others may be totally random. It is generally assumed that hauntings involve apparitions, or ghosts, of the deceased. In fact, apparitions are seldom seen. Most hauntings involve noises like footsteps, a tapping or knocking sound, strange smells, sensations like the cold prickling of the skin, cold breezes, and the feeling of being touched by an invisible hand. Other hauntings involve poltergeist-like activity such as solid objects being moved, broken glass, doors that open and close by themselves, and manipulation of lights and electrical devices. People who have been to or investigated some haunted locations reported overwhelming emotions, including anger & fear. Most times this is mistakenly referred to as “evil” or “demonic.” Other places seem to involve friendly, or at least harmless, emotions. Poltergeists Poltergeists are probably the most misunderstood form of hauntings. The actual definition for the word “poltergeist” is “noisy ghost” in German. Paranormal investigators in the past believed that poltergeists were causing the strange occurrences reported in so-called haunted houses. It was assumed that an outside force caused the things that occurred in a house that was “haunted” by a poltergeist. But that is no longer the case. A variety of phenomena can be connected to poltergeist activity: knocking and tapping sounds, noises with no visible cause, disturbance of stationary objects like household items and furniture, doors slamming, lights turning on and off, fires breaking out, and much more. Today, researchers think that while the activity is certainly paranormal, it has nothing to do with ghosts. You may be surprised by who’s really causing the activity, however. The widely accepted theory behind poltergeist phenomena in the ghost hunting world is that it’s usually caused by a person. This person is usually an adolescent girl who is going through an emotionally troubled time. The theory is that this person may be unconsciously manipulating the items in the house by psycho kinesis, which the power to move things by energy generated in the brain. Kinetic energy remains unexplained, but even mainstream scientists are starting to admit that it may exist. It is unknown why this energy appears in puberty-age girls, but it has been documented. When the activity begins to occur, the girl is usually in the middle of emotional or sexual angst. It is also possible for young boys, and even adults, to manifest this odd ability. The majority have no idea they’re causing the activity. If you or someone you know is freaked out by this kind of experience, it is always better to consult a competent mental health practitioner. Of course, not all hauntings can be so easily explained. In some cases, people aren’t the cause of the situation. Sometimes it’s possible that the source of the activity is an intelligent spirit. These entities try to make their presence known by moving objects. If this is the case, then it’s time to think about moving. Residual Hauntings This type of haunting is much more common than people realize in the ghost hunting world. But we have to remember not to confuse this type of phenomena with an “intelligent” haunting, because, while it is interesting and unexplained, ghosts may not be the cause. The easiest way to explain this type of haunting is to compare it to an old film loop. Imagine an old movie tape is stuck in the VCR and the same clip keeps repeating itself. In locations where these hauntings take place, a powerful event or a series of events may be imprinted on the atmosphere. It can then suddenly pop up and play itself at random. But it’s not necessarily visual; they are often replayed as unexplained sounds. The famous “phantom footsteps” reported in many haunted locations are a perfect example of this. How does this kind of thing happen? The sounds and images are related to traumatic events that took place at the location, causing some sort of disturbance sometimes called a “psychic impression.” This is the reason why so many battlefields have become famous for their hauntings over the years. In other situations, the images have been created by events or actions that were repeated, which caused an impression. Reputedly, that is why so many haunted staircases exist, because of the number of times people go up and down them and the amount of energy that is expended in doing so. These kinds of haunted places act as giant storage batteries, saving up the impressions of sights and sounds from the past. As time goes by, these impressions appear again as if the VCR had been turned on. While apparitions are most commonly connected to these types of hauntings, much of the activity may be in the form of sounds, and even smells. Portal Hauntings The idea of a “portal” or a “doorway” to another dimension is not a new one–though it may be a wild one in ghost hunting terms. These doorways may provide access for entities to enter our world. They may be the spirits of people who’ve died, or they could be something else altogether–perhaps otherworldly beings from another dimension? Hmmm… One of the most common locations for these “doorways” seems to be in cemeteries. As a rule, most cemeteries are not haunted, but recently, ghost hunters have collected dozens of anomalous photographs taken in graveyards. There seems to be no explanation why many of these cemeteries would become haunted unless they provide access for spirits, or entities, to pass from one world to the next. It is possible that these sites were “haunted” long before a cemetery was located there. It is also possible that the psychic draw of the area was what caused our ancestors to locate a cemetery there in the first place. Native Americans chose their burial grounds in this manner, although they did it consciously. They found a place to bury and honor the dead that they felt was more closely connected to the next world. Traditional or Intelligent Hauntings This type of haunting is perhaps the most widely accepted kind of ghostly activity, and most exciting while ghost hunting, although it’s not as common as you might think. Here, the spirit or entity involved is an “intelligent” presence in a haunted location. It is there because of a connection to the site or to the people in the location. This ghost is best (and most simply) described as the personality of a person who once lived and who has stayed behind in our world instead of passing over to the other side. This sometimes happens in the case of a murder, traumatic event or unfinished business. At the time of death, the spirit refuses to pass over because of these events. The spirits often linger because of emotions that tie them to the earth, from anger to love. Or perhaps the person does not pass not because they couldn’t, but because they did not want to. In other cases, there is the chance the spirit does not even realize they are dead (like Patrick Swayze in “Ghost”Smilie: ;). This can occur when the death is sudden. These spirits are made up of the energy that once made up the personality of a living person. These intelligent spirits are not evil or demonic, as some would have you believe. Spirits are simply human personalities, or souls, and if the spirit was a kind and caring person in life, the spirit will most likely be in death. On the other hand, angry and cruel people will also keep those same nasty qualities as spirits. These negative spirits can be frightening, especially to people not trained in the paranormal. In very rare cases they have been able to harm the living, but that is generally not the case. It is much more common to hear of an encounter with a benevolent spirit than with a negative one. That’s a relief, isn’t it? I will post more when I get more time to write. For now, this should get you started. Happy Ghost Hunting!

If you try any of these apps please let us know your experience with them. SV-1 SpiritVox ULTRA-EDITION SpiritVoxSub-Sonic & Ultra-Sonic White Noise Generator. For use in Paranormal Research, Ghost Hunting, EVP Recording & ITC research. This Special Edition of SpiritVox contains 2 signal modes to choose from: “Sub-Sonic” mode & “Ultra-Sonic” mode EVP caught during experiment with this app:http://snd.sc/MNpPyMEach mode sweeps from audible to inaudible frequencies to cover the range of human hearing and beyond. Creates a “wall” of sonic white noise covering the ENTIRE sound spectrum. This form of white noise has been shown to produce EVP both audibly in real-time as well as upon review of recordings. This app DOES NOT record audio, use it with your favorite method of recording. App will run in the background if you would like to record on the same device. *Sub-Sonic mode requires an external speaker to accurately produce the sub sonic frequencies, most phone speakers are NOT capable of this on their own. USE WITH CAUTION! ULTRASOUND CAN DAMAGE HEARING AND ANIMALS ARE VERY SENSITIVE TO IT! SUBSONIC FREQUENCIES HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO CAUSE NERVOUSNESS AND OTHER PHYSICAL REACTIONS. Younger ears may be more sensitive to high frequencies, do not use near children! It is not necessary to use this at high volume. Set it to where you are comfortable. PROTECT YOUR EARS! SPIRITONE Sonic Energy Device Spiritone V.1 Sonic Energy Device / ECHOVOX System. PARANORMAL RESEARCH TOOL Spiritone V.1 Sonic Energy Device / ECHOVOX System. From the creator of the SV-1 SpiritVox and ECHOVOX. This paranormal research tool is an experiment using 4 channels of randomly generated audio tones on multiple channels playing at variable speeds and random note lengths. All 4 channels can be mixed using the unique “blend” dial. FREQUENCIES: Channel A 40hz-5000hz Channel B 20hz-20khz Channel C 15hz-15khz Channel D 15hz-20khz Also contained is a built in “ECHOVOX” like ECHO function (REAL TIME RECORDING/MONITORING). If you are unfamiliar with ECHOVOX https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bigbeard.echovox please see these videos:http://www.youtube.com/user/bigbeardaudio/videosThere are a few different ideas at play here that lead me to create this software. The first being something both myself and my users have discovered. Both the SV-1 SpiritVox and Spirit Voice/ECHOVOX apps seem to help “stir up” or attract entities to a location and many have claimed that they help “charge” and atmosphere. I have witnessed this hundreds of times and agree. However, these energies that show up are not always pleasant. My thinking here is to send out positive, warm natural tones to create not only a new type of noise bed for EVP and ITC but also to help encourage positive entities and repel any negative. SOUND IS ENERGY, the more the better in this situation, and the ECHO function should make it easy for “them” to hear it as well. The second reason for it’s creation was that I wanted to create an ECHOVOX system without any human sounds/phonetics etc. Who knows where this could lead. Lastly I wanted software that could also be used for meditation and aid in personal protection. These sounds can be used as random background noise for meditation or ritual cleansing. (SEE “CLEANSING TONES” BELOW) “CLEANSING TONE” FUNCTION: This button will start a set of 3 notes, 3 octaves of “A” 432hz This is a true, natural “A” note. When pressed all other sounds will stop. The idea here is that some believe a natural “A” note can be used to repel negative energy and/or attract positive energy. This note can be played after a session to “c;ear the air” it can also be used on its own for personal mediation and prayer. This chord is set to play as loud as possible to help “blast” positive energy into your environment. Spirit Voice 2.0 SW Ghost Box Spirit VoiceFrom the creator of SpiritVox comes the long awaited VERSION 2.0 vocal generator version of the SV-1 SpiritVox software ghost box. This software plays multiple channels of random vocal samples, synthetic speech generated at random from word library along with speed control and SV-1 bendable noise. Also featured is “Speech mode” where the app acts as a random word generator. Words are triggered by EMF fluctuations detected using the devices magnetic field reader. Readings are displayed using a unique Digital Compass” The speech itself is synthetic speech created by Androids built in speech synthesis module. There are thousands and thousands of words in the database. GHOST BOX SETTING: Spirit Voice works great as a traditional “Ghost Box”. Simply blend the noise and voice channels as desired and turn the speed up to 100% (all the way left). the speech engine will work as hard as it can to try to say up to 5 words per second. This creates an excellent bed of white noise for EVP/ITC sessions and experiments. Just watch the videos at www.youtube.com/bigbeardaudio to witness countless 2 way spirit communications using this method. Spirit voice can be used with Spirifone https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bigbeardapp.svrec1#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDIxMiwiY29tLmJpZ2JlYXJkYXBwLnN2cmVjMSJd and an external speaker to create an ECHOVOX system.

At first I was a bit overwhelmed with it as it seemed you had to be smarter than the phone to operate it but, I ‘m starting to get the hang of it and it has now become one of things that I wonder what I ever did without it! I love my phone now! I had heard that there were many available apps to use on investigations so I went on the hunt. After searching around I found that you could get a ton of different apps but if you get them at one place they charge for them while another place offers them free. Not sure why or how but, if it’s free it’s me! Here is what I found: Ovilus X: Ghost Speaker reads the environmental sensors of your phone, to produce speech!Ovilus X The Ghost Speaker acquires environmental readings and using a proprietary algorithm, calculates possible energy values that might be a means of communication. These are processed through the speech translation software to speak a word which may or may not be from a ghost, spirit, entity or demon. Please leave your results. For best results when using the Ghost Speaker, move the phone around to receive different energies. Move it to a new position and wait a few seconds. Then move it again. SpiriFone Real Time EVP Recorder: SpiriFone EVP RecorderedFrom the creator of the popular SpiritVox comes The “Spirifone” REAL-TIME EVP RECORDER! Built for Ghost Hunters by Ghost Hunters! This is one of the most important tools you can have for Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Investigations! Stop waiting to review recordings to find out if you captured something.
