"Who Is Haunting Who?"

"Who Is Haunting Who"

by Perry B. Mitchell

Just because you hunt for ghost and haunt them doesn't mean they are not hunting for someone just like you to haunt!

Are ghost or paranormal activity driving you crazy? Does a poltergeist live in your home now and your afraid to look for help? Well your not alone. Many Paranormal investigators from around the world are having the same problems. Ghost hunting does come with it's real dangers, and several novice ghost hunters are not even aware of what dangers they bring into their families and friends lives just by doing investigations.

Yes "Real Ghost" tend to follow you home and will take up residence in your life, like it or not. They often find that haunting you is a lot more fun the the house or person they were haunting. Why? Because you give them the energy and attention they need. You jump when they perform, you listen when they speak. And you don't know how to rid yourself of them. Whether you need to get verification that ghosts have taken up residence in your life. Or of collecting evidence from your own family. It is better to collect the evidence of the activity through a fellow paranormal investigator. Validation is the key, otherwise it night just be your own haunted fears coming to the surface.

Keeping a log or journal of what's going on in your home can sometimes reflect your own worries or just fears. An active imagination is often spurred on by the real encounters that happen to you while out investigating ghosts else where. Once you've decided that you are experiencing a real home "haunting". You must realize that by having ghosts in the brain all the time can create ghosts in your life. Real or not your probably actually haunting yourself. But if you think it is a real haunting don't call in your own team. They might just make matters worse.

I decided to contact someone who is in the know of such matters so I emailed the Great American Necromancer Lisa Lee Harp Waugh. "As Paranormal Investigators we are actually haunting the ghost we search for. We disrupt their activities and many ghost don't like that." says Waugh. "So in many cases turn around in the ghost world is fair play." "Remember a real ghost might just want to drive you crazy." " It might only perform for you and no one else." "Ghosts often will watch you for months at a time before haunting you ." "Every second learning your habits and watching you as you show them things about yourself that only someone unseen would see."

Often those new to ghost hunting go so wild in their personal search to discover and experience a real haunting. That they see ghosts in everything that is going on in the normal world around them. Not to say real ghost are not around us. Just that if a object falls for no reason from it's resting place they instinctively think it's a ghost. And in most cases it is not. But you at this point in your paranormal ghost hunting career or so ghost tuned in just everything in life is a haunted experience.

For all we know maybe actual ghosts have live people hunting groups and look for evidence that we are real to them.

You know what a ghost can do... Well, is it really happening to you?

The first step is to determine, as best you can, whether or not you truly have a legitimate case of a haunting. Here's a list of phenomena that might indicate that your house or your life is haunted:

Unexplained noises - A lite ringing in your ears, footsteps; knocks, banging, rapping; scratching sounds; sounds of something being dropped in the attic or basement. Sometimes these noises can be subtle and other times they can be quite loud.

Doors, cabinets and cupboards opening and closing - most often, these phenomena are not seen directly. The experiencing party either hears the distinct sounds of the doors opening and closing (homeowners get to know quite well the distinctive sounds their houses make) or the person will return to a room to find a door open or closed when they are certain that it was left in the opposite position. Sometimes furniture, like kitchen chairs, are perceived to have been moved. Very rarely will the person actually witness the phenomenon taking place.
Lights turning off and on - likewise, these events are seldom seen actually occurring, but the lights are switched on or off when the person knows they were not left that way. This can also happen with TVs, radios and other electrically powered items.

Items disappearing and reappearing - this phenomenon, which we have dubbed "the DOPler Effect" (DOP = Disappearing Object Phenomenon), has been examined in the article "The DOPler Effect." Others have called this "the borrowers" phenomenon, and it's the familiar experience of not being able to find a regularly used item - say, your set of car keys - which you believe you placed in a spot you routinely place them. But they're gone and you look high and low for them with no success. Some time later, the keys are found - in exactly the place you normally put them. It's as if the object was borrowed by someone or something for a short time, then returned. Sometimes they are not returned for days or even weeks, but when they are, it's in an obvious place that could not have been missed by even a casual search.

Unexplained shadows - the sighting of fleeting shapes and shadows, usually seen out of the corner of the eye. This phenomenon has also been discussed in some detail in "Shadow People." Many times, the shadows have vaguely human forms, while other times they are less distinguishable or smaller.

Strange animal behavior - a dog, cat or other pet behaves strangely. Dogs may bark at something unseen, cower without apparent reason or refuse to enter a room they normally do. Cats may seem to be "watching" something cross a room. Animals have sharper senses than humans, and many researchers think their psychic abilities might be more finely tuned also.

Feelings of being watched - this is not an uncommon feeling and can be attributed to many things, but it could have a paranormal source if the feeling consistently occurs in a particular part of the house at a particular time.
Those are some of the most common experiences of those who think their houses are haunted. Yet even stranger things can happen...

Excerpted from 16 Signs That Your House is Haunted What to watch for and what to do about it By Stephen Wagner, About.com http://paranormal.about.com/od/ghosthuntinggeninfo/a/aa060704.htm

"Contacting A Paranormal Investigator That You Do Not Know."

This is of course the next logical step! Do not use your own group of ghost hunting friends or team. They cannot be as objective of you and your plight as a stranger might. It might be hard to swallow your pride but contact a rival team in your neck of the woods to come and check you out. It os better to have a person who can be objective to you and your situation rather then someone that is ready to agree with you no matter what is going on. You are hopefully lucky enough to have another group of investigators in your area . Remember that a real objective paranormal investigators will only "verify" that you are indeed experiencing haunting activities. And you have not gone over the deep end.

Unidentified Man with Two Spirits. Albumen print carte de visite, circa 1870.

Others coming onto your home also gives you the chance to critique them as well, as what you do in your normal practices of searching out paranormal evidence. But I warn you . Be honest, and allow yourself to be in the haunted clients shoes for once. You might just learn something you really need to know. Maybe the forces that be are trying to show you what you might be doing wrong, or right.

Could the ghost that haunt you be doing a case study of what a ghost hunter is all about. As we know the posibilities or endless of what real ghosts can an cannot do. And for what reasons they may have, you may be the haunted target they have been searching for.
