Everyone knows of someone who knows someone that has had an encounter with a ghost. Ghost stories and tales of haunting spread like wildfire. But how much is real and how much is in the imagination of the speaker? That is something paranormal experts try to find out. Sometimes it comes out to be nothing and sometimes there is actually something present. Keep reading for the answers to some of the questions you may have about the paranormal.
How do people investigate paranormal activities? Actually documenting a paranormal activity is rather difficult. So far there has been no concrete evidence that could not be explained away by science. However, believers truly have thought they have come across spirits and other manifestations that could not be explained by science. Some use cameras and some use recorders to take audio recordings of sounds that are imperceptible to the human ear. No one can explain what the sounds or pictures are but there are still plenty of skeptics. Some believe it is human error and human judgment that colors the researchers’ beliefs.
Can being a paranormal investigator pay? Though skeptics laugh heartily at this question, some people do pay money to organizations to help them if they feel that there is something spooky going on. Organizations can be paid to prove that a place is haunted. If you specialize in the occult, people may come to you for advice and then pay you for your help in whatever matter is troubling them. Just think about how much money the 1-900 psychics make for each phone call just to tell someone about a lost relative or someone they love.
What should I do if I find proof of paranormal activity? If you find concrete proof of paranormal activity the first thing you need to do is provide accurate documentation. You may want to let a paranormal group take a look at your findings and then let them perform studies themselves. If everything turns out to be valid then you may want to contact a scientific journal or a newspaper. Yes, there are still going to be skeptics but if you have concrete proof then those skeptics may be swayed and they may not be. There are even some skeptics that have put up a million dollar reward for people to prove that psychic and paranormal phenomenon actually exists and can be proven. You could find yourself a million dollars richer.
Are all sightings and haunting bad? According to paranormal groups not all sightings and haunting are bad. In the case of a cryptozoologist a new sighting and confirmation is a great thing. And the same goes with some occultists and ghost hunters. They believe that some haunting and spirits are just lost souls looking for a way out of the earthly plane. It really all depends on what you believe.
