    Negativity In Your Paranormal Investigation Team

    Did you know that negativity most often starts out as a very tiny seed and with each following instance of negativity that original seed gets watered, and in a serious enough happenstance may receive a heavy dose of miracle grow. Let’s say hypothetically that leading a paranormal investigation team is synonymous to tending to a garden. It doesn’t take very long for a seed of negativity to quickly grow into a big weed and without taking care of that weed it will continue to spread and eventually will overwhelm your beautiful garden.

    The Orb Conspiracy

    I receive a lot of questions via email pertaining to people sharing their paranormal experiences and looking for my interpretation on their situation. I would guesstimate that four out of 5 emails that I receive are related to orbs. I have discussed orbs in the past in various blog posts, but I thought that it would be beneficial to create a detailed blog entry on orbs that I can refer people to when they email me with photos and videos of orbs, believing that they may be paranormal in nature due to wide spread misinformation which is even propagated by many people involved with the paranormal community including but not limited to ghost hunters, paranormal investigators, paranormal enthusiasts, online video channels, theatrical movies, and televised paranormal programming.

    Why We Investigate At Night Part 2

    When you watch paranormal investigation television shows you may have noticed that the extreme majority of investigations or ghost hunts are completed at night. Have you ever wondered why this is so? Today’s blog entry is part two of a two part series where we will discuss this phenomenon. On part one we discussed how many paranormal investigations, ghost hunts, ghost tours, and paranormal themed televisions shows are done at night simply for the spooky factor as not all groups use a level of science that would cause you to choose to engage in paranormal related activities at night for scientific purposes. We also discussed how sometimes it is due to scheduling necessities due to the investigators or clients working during the day. Today we will discuss the science component and reasons for conducting paranormal investigations in the evening. Some of what is explored here is pulled from previous blog posts and podcasts that I have authored so some of this you may have read or heard before if you follow my blog or podcast.

    Prioritize Science Before The Paranormal

    We all have our own reasons for getting into the paranormal field. For some people it is due to what they perceive to be paranormal experiences in their childhood or as an adult. For others it is due to the television and movie craze that focused on paranormal investigations, ghost hunting, or paranormal stories. Perhaps a friend or family member was involved with the field empirically or as a hobby interest and you got interested in it through them. Regardless of how you became interested in the field you have surely seen those who don’t worry about science, that focus on some science, and you may or may not have seen those who focus heavily on science. This entry discusses why it is important to prioritize science before the paranormal.
