Ghost Hunters are not searching for
specters in the night for the money.
And we know it cannot be just for
the notoriety that it would bring
to you. Is it a personal quest just
to prove to themselves that there
is life after death? Or is it that
your afraid to die and find out nothing
happens after the world you lived
in no longer exist? What ever terms
you put it into what are your real
reasons for hunting for specters of
the dead and things that go bump in
I have taken it upon myself to investigate
ghost hunters, paranormal researchers
of the sorts that now hunt for ghosts
in North America. I always ask them
the same question that so many neglect
to ask. Why do you do it? The answers
might just surprise you when you get
right into it but everyone has their
truths and no tow seem to be the same
when you press the issue.
I personally hate as we all do the
evasive answer of:
Well something paranormal, supernatural
happened to me once and I don't want
to discuss it! When I hear this I
always think, "What sacred the
shit out of you ". And excuse
me, there is therapy and drugs that
can help you get over it. These individuals
urk me to the bone. I think to myself
are you trying to prove to yourself
and the world how brave you are? Certainly
if your hunting for anything it is
the thrill of it that draws you to
it. Not the fear that Oh my God it
will or might happen again!
I also love the answer" I am
out to prove to the world that Ghosts
and the world of paranormal activity
is real". Are not all of who
do it on this quest. But tangible
answers or often like hunting for
ghosts, No one can really give you
a straight answer.
But please don' t tell me, "I
do it for the fun of it", then
I will personally kick your ass!
Lets just face the real paranormal
facts, we all just do it because it
fills some need we have to communicate
with the dead.
Personally I will tell you I have
seen and witnessed ghosts and paranormal
phenomena for many years without going
out and searching for it. When your
a sensitive person to ghosts they
find you. Paranormal worlds and haunting's
call out to some individuals through
out their lives. Time slips, communications
with ghost and just plain strange
activity plague many today. But in
truth who wants individuals that really
don't have any business coming into
your life that or only able to hunt
for ghosts only when their day job
Dedicated paranormal investigators
work at it 24//7 365 days a year.
You might ask why?
It's because it is a calling not
a fun roller coaster ride in to the
unknown over a long boring weekend.
Ghost Writers and
My motivation has always been about
money, the fame and my passion to
write but not in the way you would
think. Most people think authors of
paranormal books and web sites are
primarily motivated by making money--for
many, it is that they derive great
pleasure just because someone is taking
interest in them and their work. I
have asked many paranormal story writer
and article writers why they do it.
The answer is usually very direct.
" I am helping people see their
is more in the world then what is
known to them." " The money
from it is secondary." "And
I am a writer and the Paranormal is
my biggest interest."
To me their are a few that I can
truly believe this to be the actual
case. Though some of these individuals
seem to be more stuck on making a
name for themselves as a legitimate
author then as someone who really
is in to ghosts. The Market today
is full of many accounts of haunted
houses, hotels and where to go to
find real ghosts. Collecting ghost
stories to some is like collecting
salt shakers from around the world.
And once you get them what do you
do with them? Well you catalog them
and write a book to show them off.
In the beginning many ghost enthusiast
will tell their stories but by the
time the novelty of the ghost chase
wears off. Soon they are collecting
stories from anyone who has one to
tell. Many times the real Ghost Story
you are reading is more contrived
then truth. This is not necessarily
all cases but the next time you read
a book on haunted locations realize
that no matter who wrote it the original
story all came from one source.
Ghost Haunted locations stories usually
seem to be all related to individual
sightings fostered by one story that
ended up in print somewhere. And the
stories that follow are always a off
shoot from that tale whether it was
true or not.
Personally I do enjoy reading books
by the likes of Hans Holzer to those
writers that just fabricate a good
ghost story with no research at all.
But I also love reading and finding
a haunted authors stories turned and
twisted into fictions. I believe I
like this because it is how ghost
hunting really works. Stories grow
and no two people experience things
in the exact same way.
I personally loathe the writer who
sensationalizes every investigation
they work on. No matter what happens
they over embellish the findings and
the facts. Do you know how many groups
web sites I get to and read haunted
tales that are just to, too over the
mark and really say nothing.
The Real Ghost Hunters
And Ghostbusters Of Today
If you are a fan of any of the reality
Par normal programming you will see
what I see. You might not think or
respect what your seeing the same
as I do. But you need to learn how
to watch reason and critically think
about what these shows like scifi's
Ghost Hunters relate to you.
Often you look at those that or hoping
a location is haunted and think of
finding a ghost as a reward. A real
residual Ghost as a tangible proof,
is presented after the occurrence
of an action (i.e. behavior) with
the intent to cause the behavior to
Many ghost stories always seem to
tell of residual hauntings. Like a
tape loop playing the same 30 sec
to 1 minute scene over and over again.
So if this is what the haunting is
then that's all that can be gathered
from it by several independent individual
ghost hunters. A sound a voice a apparition
all happening like clock work on a
daily, monthly or annual schedule.
These residual ghost real or not or
often what deems a specific location
to be 100% really a real haunted hot
spot. You as a ghost hunter either
accept it as fact. Write it off and
say ok why investigate that or consider
it a prime spot to see if you encounter
anything other then what is reported.
If a location has been written up
over time consider the spooky stories
of of well known Haunted Houses, phantom
spirits, unexplained mysteries, and
the individuals that come out and
say they witnessed it. Human beings
have wants and desires which influence
their behavioral judgments; only unsatisfied
needs can influence behavior, satisfied
needs cannot. So will it break a persons
spirit to find out their haunted house
is not haunted? In many cases people
are realizing yes it will. I have
even as you have heard of individuals
seeking haunted homes to live and
in. I guess we are the ghost hunting
Workshops and Seminars are the big
trend in Ghost Hunting today. Many
thought ghost Hunting was just a fad.
but the trend has grown to larger
proportions. SciFi conventions have
also made room to allow those in the
paranormal community to join in. Scifi's
ghost hunters is now part of of what
is really in today. Para Science in
the minds of many.
As of to date their is no training
location that has such haunted activity
that would be ghost hunters are allowed
to investigate that any two ghost
hunters have all said yes this happened
to me as well. If they did it's like
going to a halloween spook house where
everything happens on cue. Motivation
is the reason or reasons for engaging
in a studying ghosts and strange paranormal
effected individuals behavior. More
and more people are starting today
to realize what type of person hunts
for ghosts. Those become interested
not in ghosts or the paranormal are
now studying those that do. Paranormal
investigators human behavior is now
being studied in philosophy, conflict,
economics, psychology, and neuropsychology.
These reasons may include basic needs
such as a desired objective, as hobbies,
goal, state of being, or ideal. The
motivation for a paranormal behavior
research may also be attributed to
less-apparent reasons such as altruism
Ghost Hunting Conferences and Paranormal
Training Workshops, Seminars and College
Lectures are all now adays the rage.
The growing numbers of Ghost Fanatics
is growing by leaps and bounds everyday.
Some ghost hunters just merely want
to bell the cat, or catch the ghost.
but then have nothing to do with the
location afterwards. This might just
be the team or individuals idea of
a rush of excitement dealing with
the unknown. Tempting fate or undertake
something dangerous in the service
of a group just to say , " Yeah
I did It." Ego's of these individuals
vary and no one anywhere who openly
hunts for real ghosts have the same
interest or reasons for doing it.
Their are some ghost investigators
that do it to try to help- others
these groups follow the standard that
they want the ghosts understood for
the well being for others, not themselves.
Including the ghosts.
Purdeè Beiliseuz is a well
respected French Canadian Paranormal
Parapsychologist. She is credited
by some with over 32 years of ghost
and paranormal investigations under
her belt. Known to many as the pioneer
of The EMF Detectors real faults when
use in documenting haunted hotspots.
Beiliseuz believes that the best way
to hunt ghosts is by going into a
location paranormal equipment nude,
with just a emf detector so that what
you carry as other equipment will
not effect your readings.
When you wish to use a camera only
use a camera. Then remove that from
the location and come back with only
a digital voice recorder and nothing
more. So on and so on. Never have
a team member present in a location
with you either. Some people generate
electrical static that can come across
as a false positive also. She also
believe that wool or clothes with
plastic should be worn while ghost
hunting. And that what you wear should
be free of all metal.
