  • 7 Signs of Paranormal Activity

    Recognizing the signs of paranormal activity is the most important step in resolving issues caused by unknown entities. Every case is different and your experience is likely to differ from that of your neighbor or friend. There are some common activities that paranormal investigators and researchers believe to be indicators of existing or ensuing paranormal activity.

    # 1. Phantom sounds can take the form of voices, music or repetitive noises that occur at regular intervals. The characteristic sound of footsteps in the night, laughing, crying or music that occur at regular intervals are attributed to a residual haunting. Intelligent or inhuman spirits may create sounds to get your attention or to communicate with you in some way. You may experience the sounds of knocking, tapping or scratching in the wall or loud crashes and bangs with no identifiable cause. Each is characteristic of specific types of hauntings.

  • The Risks and Dangers of Paranormal Investigation

    Many paranormal investigators believe there are real dangers of a spiritual nature that ghost hunting groups should be aware of. The following editorial is from The North East Paranormal Society.

    The metaphysical dangers of an investigation are real and should be taken seriously. If it were only the physical and emotional things to worry about, then this field of study could be done by almost anyone… but that’s not the case. Sometimes things we are looking for are there, and more often than not these things can and do follow us home at the end of the night. This is where the dangers come in.

    Yes, ghosts, spirits, demons and any other entity can attach themselves to you and follow you home. You need to keep in mind and be open to the fact that if there are good spirits, then there are bad ones as well. Most times the evil entity starts out claiming to be the spirit of a deceased person or someone that died tragically. This way the evil spirit can sucker the unsuspecting ghost hunters into believing that they are helping a spirit by communicating with it. This gives the demonic or negative being more energy to manifest into something that the unsuspecting did not count on. The act in itself is to trick you into thinking it is friendly, and this can go on for some time, or at least until the negative entity or demonic force feels that it has your full trust.

  • Immortality Project

    The University of California, Riverside (UCR) has received a $5 million grant to study the afterlife.

    The money will fund research into heaven, hell, purgatory, karma and other topics, according to the university’s web site. The three-year grant has specifically gone to John Martin Fischer, distinguished UCR professor of philosophy. Fischer will start The Immortality Project, which will organize two conferences and a website with resources and links to published research on issues of immortality.

  • The Ouija Board

    For years the Ouija Board has been connected with the paranormal. Some people swear by them and others swear at them. Personally, I don’t remember ever trying one of them but then again if I did, and it was a traumatic experience, I might not want to remember it.

    Some Paranormal investigators consider the board as a direct connection to the “dark side” of the Occult. Penn & Teller say, “It’s Bullshit!”

    Have you ever tried the Ouija Board? What do you think?
