What Is In your Personal Paranormal Survival Kit?
Just because you hunt ghosts does not mean you are in danger of getting lost. Or does it?
By Louis Jennet
You remembered to bring along extra batteries, Your EMF detector, Camera, thermo Gun and digital voice recorder but did you ever think about what you need in case of an emergency.
Paranormal Researchers today are often the last to be prepared for ghost or demon attacks much less for getting stranded in a haunted location. Imagine locked in a haunted warehouse or mansion for a few days. or trapped in a dark pit in a secluded Haunted cemetery or lost in the woods hunting cryptids. No food, shelter or water and haunted by unseen specters, Spooks or shades.
Would you know what to do if stranded in some of the world's harshest environments without food or shelter? Survival expert Les Stroud spends seven days alone in the Rocky Mountains, the Artic, and the Costa Rican jungle without food, water, or equipment. Anything can happen anyplace anytime. Are you prepared for the normal much less the paranormal? We all can't be as knowledgeable as Les Stroud, The Survivorman.
Just because you harmlessly happen to hunt for ghosts or Cryptids does not mean you might not get into a survival situation. most investigators of worth always go out prepared to face the unknown. But in most cases an EMF meter a camera and your usual ghost hunting equipment is not enough in a dangerous situation.
A survival kit is a package of basic tools and supplies prepared in advance as an aid to survival in an emergency. Military aircraft, lifeboats, and spacecraft are equipped with survival kits, so why as a ghost hunter do you think your exempt? As a paranormal Investigator there are things that you should add to your survival essentials.
"Consider taking along a bible or religious item such as a rosary, cross, and holy water. Star of David, a blessed Crucifix and any items known to ward off ghost and evil spirits." " In Louisiana I hear that paranormal investigators carry red brick dust in their kits as well as garlic, hot peppers and salt." "Red brick is to keep evil; spirits at bay, and the latter three are just to ward off Vampires, Grunch and Zombie's. " " Also remember you need ingenuity and skill. "Says David Wolfe II of Haunts Of Owensboro ghost tours.
Survival kits come in a variety of sizes, they need to contain supplies and tools to provide a person with basic shelter against the elements, help them keep warm, meet their health and first aid needs, provide food and water, signal to rescuers, and assist them in finding their way back to help. Supplies in a survival kit normally contain a knife (often a Swiss army knife or a multi-tool), matches, tinder, first aid kit, bandanna, fish hooks, sewing kit, and an LED flashlight with batteries.
What special items should go into a paranormal expedition survival kit you may ask? Of course the basics apply like water and something to eat.

The Ten Essentials is a list of essential items hiking authorities promote as recommended for safe travel in the back country.
The Ten Essentials were first described in the 1930s by The Mountaineers, a hiking and mountain climbing club. Many regional organizations and authors recommend that hikers, backpackers, and climbers rigorously ensure they have the ten essentials with them. However, many expert hikers do not always carry all the items. Today it is highly suggested that as a paranormal investigator of any type, one should ave these items on hand on all investigations . No matter how safe the situation could should or might be.
2. Compass (optionally supplemented with a GPS receiver)
3. Sunglasses and sunscreen
4. Extra food and water
5. Extra clothes
7. First aid kit
8. Fire starter
Many Investigators recommends supplementing the ten essentials with:
* Water treatment device (water filter or chemicals) and water bottles
* Ice axe for glacier or snowfield travel (if necessary)
* Repair kit, including duct tape and a basic sewing materials.
* Insect repellent (or clothing designed for this purpose)
* Signaling devices, such as a whistle, cell phone, two-way radio, satellite phone, unbreakable signal mirror or flare.
* Plastic tarp and rope for expedient field shelter.
Not every ghost hunt or bigfoot expedition will require the use of an essential item. Carrying these basic items improves the chances that one is prepared for an unexpected emergency in the outdoors. For instance, if a hiker experiences a sudden snow storm, fresh clothes and fire starter may be used to keep warm, or the map and compass and headlamp will allow them to exit the wilderness quickly; otherwise hypothermia becomes a prominent possibility, perhaps even death.
* A map and compass prevents one from getting lost in the field. Losing one's bearing in unfamiliar terrain raises the risk of anxiety and panic, and hence, physical injury. Maps that cover the relevant area in sufficient detail and dimension (topography, trails, roads, campsites, towns, etc.) and the skill and knowledge to use them are indispensable when traveling through the outdoors, especially when the place of travel lacks signage, markings or guides. Even a basic compass can help an individual find his way to safety.
* Flashlights and headlamps protect against physical injury when traveling in the dark. A flashlight is also useful for finding things in the pack, observing wildlife in dark crevices and folds, and for distant signaling. Extra batteries and bulbs are highly recommended. Lamps using LEDs have become very popular, due to their robustness and low power consumption.
* Extra food and water can prevent or cure hypothermia and dehydration, common illness that can be serious risks in the backcountry where immediate medical response is not possible. These items also minimize the likelihood of panic. It is not recommended that one eat food when there is no water, as the body requires water to metabolize food.
* Extra clothes protect against hypothermia. Multiple layers of clothes are generally warmer than a single thick garment. By having the ability to simply take off a layer of clothes, one can avoid overheating, which can cause sweat and dampen clothing. Moreover, a change into dry clothes is the fastest way to become warm. Extra clothing is also useful for protection from the elements, including thorns, insects, sun, wind, and often cold. If necessary, they can be cut into bandages, used as a tree climbing aid, made into hot pads, pillows, towels, or makeshift ropes. For overnight trekking, one should keep one set of clothes dry for wear in the evening. One can wear the "day" clothes during the next day's hike when they are drier.
* Sunglasses help prevent snow blindness. Sunlight, especially when reflected in snow, can seriously limit visibility, and jeopardize one's ability to travel safely.
* A first aid kit usually contains items to treat cuts, abrasions (blisters), punctures and burns. Additional items might address broken fingers, limbs, cardiac conditions, hypothermia, frostbite, hypothermia, hypoxia, insect and snake bites, allergic reactions, burns and other wounds. If applicable, include any personal medications. In areas known to be inhabited by poisonous snakes, it is also a good idea to carry a snake bite kit.
* A knife is useful for opening packages, building shelter, shaving wood for tinder, eating, field surgery (after sterilization), cutting rope and clothing, etc. A multi-tool such as a Leatherman is also a versatile choice. A larger knife (machete) might be essential when one needs or desires to go off trail into thicker growth. A heavier ax or knife is more effective when one has larger needs for construction or for collecting firewood.
* Matches (or a lighter) and fire starter (typically chemical heat tabs, canned heat, or magnesium stick) to light a campfire is useful for preventing hypothermia and to signal for aid. In an emergency, a fire increases one's psychological will to survive.
* A water treatment device (filter or chemical treatment) makes water potable. All water, including that from streams, lakes, or pools, needs to be treated for bacteria and viruses in order to ensure safety. Most backcountry travelers carry a water filter: low end models are inexpensive and provide protection against many pathogens, but not viruses. Some more expensive filters and improved chemical treatments get rid of most health risks, including giardia and other protozoa and viruses. Treating the water reduces the likelihood of gastrointestinal diseases. Since some chemical treatments such as iodine or chlorine may leave a bad taste, many suggest mixing in a flavor to hide the taste. These include powdered lemonade or fruit drinks, Tang, Gatorade, or Crystal Light.
* A whistle is a compact, lightweight, and inexpensive way to signal for help. Although a person cannot shout for a long period, he can whistle for extended amounts of time. Moreover, the sharp sound of a whistle travels over longer distances than the human voice, and provides a much more distinct sound. Although environmental factors such as wind, snow, and heavy rain may drown out a voice, the sound of a whistle is clearly distinguishable in the field.

Secondary sources on survival skills, including those produced by the United States Army, and the Boy Scouts of America (priorities for an individual or group in a survival situation), formulate lists of needs to be met in order to survive.
The needs for survival are differently conceptualized between sources; they may give six, or seven, or ten "needs" or "priorities." Furthermore, those sources often differ as to the relative priority of survival needs in a given survival situation. Some sources expressly acknowledge what seems manifest: that the order of priority of survival needs shifts according to the immediate situation faced.
One widely circulated concept to help set priorities is called the "Rule of Three": Employed a mnemonic device, the Rule of Three states:
1. Humans cannot survive more than three hours exposed to extreme low-temperature.
2. Humans cannot survive more than three days without water.
3. Humans cannot survive more than three weeks without food.
The Rule of Three is often otherwise formulated and is viewed by commentators as a rough guide. An aircrew reportedly lasted 8 days without water in a life raft. People have survived without food for over twenty-one days.

Paranormal Survival Kit General Contents
You as an individual or group leader should always cinsider the fact that things go wrong fast. The more rmote the location the more a small problem can become overwhelming. Paranomal Expert investigator Gina Lanier suggest you treat any outdoor investigation like you would in going on a Camping trip.
Shelter or warmth
* Reflective "aluminized" (Mylar coated) space blanket or survival blanket to retain body heat (and signal)
* Lightweight poncho for protection against wind and rain
* "Tube tent" or bivvy bag
* Tarp with grommets or tie-tapes (best if nylon or polyester)
* Large plastic trash bag as poncho or expedient shelter roof
* Mosquito net to keep off biting insects
* Wide-brimmed hat
* Knitted or fleece "watch cap" to insulate area of greatest heat loss
* Magnifying glass for fire-starting
* Magnesium bar with artificial flint (AKA "Doan Tool") and steel striker for fire-starting
* Firesteel (AKA "Metal match," "Hot Spark," "ferrocerium rod") and striker for fire-starting
* Waterproof matches
* Matches in waterproof container (include striker -- facing away from matches, if not "strike anywhere" matches)
* Butane lighter (won't work under freezing - carry inside clothing)
* Hexamine fuel tablets (Esbit) or "heat tablets" for fire-starting
* Cotton balls or pads smeared with white petroleum for fire starting (can be carried in 35 mm container or heat-sealed inside large diameter plastic straw)
* Dark-colored (black preferred) shoe polish for fire-starting (It also gives off a smell that can repel animals and can be used for marking and camouflage)
Food and water
* At least three days' worth of water (1 US gallon (3.8 l; 0.83 imp gal) - approximately 8 pounds (3.6 kg)) per person per day: two quarts for drinking, two quarts for food preparation/sanitation). Commercially bottled water is the safest and most reliable emergency supply of water, kept bottled in its original container and unopened. FEMA recommends replacing water at least once each year.
* Commercial water filter
* Metal container to boil water
* Iodine or chlorine tablets for emergency water purification if boiling or filter not available.
* Table salt for food and also can be used for brushing teeth.
* Collapsible (empty) water bags or containers (Often unlubricated condoms are used in place of commercial water bags)
* Canned food, Ready-to-eat meals (MRE), or high-energy foods such as chocolate or emergency food bars. Hiking meals, such as dehydrated food, can also be used, but are not ready to eat - they require rehydration (water), but most are prepared in the bag rather than needing a cooking vessel. Canned foods heated in a closed can may explode.
* Fishing line and gear (fish hooks, lures, and split shot leads)
* Snare wire
* Gill Net (for emergency fishing)
* Tea, gum, and hard candy (as a morale booster)

The Standard XL Ghost Hunting Kit by Spectral Technologies includes a Cellsensor EMF detector and a Mastercool 52227 Infrared Thermometer. The kit provides two of the most important tools for a Ghost Hunter / Paranormal Investigator. The Cellsensor has been calibrated to ignore the extremely subtle EMF emissions surrounding the human body, yet is still sensitive enough to detect the small, distinct, erratic EMF energy fluctuations frequently found at reputed haunted locations. The Cellsensor provides three corroborating indicators of EMF emission strength. A needle based display, LED lights, and an adjustable audio signal. The response time of this meter is excellent, easily outperforming more expensive EMF meters. It can also be operated in silent mode so it doesn't interfere with EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) recordings or distract other investigators during an investigation. Compare the value this kit offers compared to buying an infrared thermometer and EMF Meter separately. There is no other offer that comes close to providing these levels of features and performance for the price. You've seen television ghost hunters use similar detectors and thermometers. Now you can get your own at a reasonable price and start investigating the unknown.

Armageddon (Greek Αρμαγεδων; [armagedôn] also spelled Har-Magedon, came from Hebrew [Har-Megiddo] or, in some modern English translations, the Mount of Megiddo), is the site of the final battle (or campaign) between God and Satan (whose name means 'adversary'), also known as the Devil. Satan will operate through the person known as the "Beast" or the Antichrist, written about in the Book of Revelation in the New Testament. More generally, it can also refer to an apocalyptic catastrophe.
The word Armageddon in scripture is known only from a single verse in the Greek New Testament, where it is said to be Hebrew and is thought to represent the Hebrew words Har Megido (הר מגידו), meaning "Mountain of Megiddo". Megiddo was the location of many decisive battles in ancient times.

Paranormal Mental Preparedness
Gina Lanier states that the mind and its processes are critical to survival. It is said that the will to live in a life and death situation often separates who lives and who does not. Stories of heroic feats of survival by regular people with little or no training but a strong will to live are not uncommon.
So stressful is a true survival situation, that those who appear to have a clear understanding of the stressors, even trained experts, are said to be mentally affected by facing deadly peril.
It seems that, to the extent that stress results from testing human limits, the benefits of learning to function under stress and determining those limits may outweigh the downside of stress. After all, stress is a natural reaction to adverse circumstances, developed by evolution to assist in survival - at least, in terms of brief, perilous encounters (such as being caught in the middle of a natural disaster, or being attacked by a wild animal.) If stress lingers for a prolonged period of time, it tends to produce the opposite effect, impeding one's ability to survive. In particular, the commentators note the following adverse effects of stress: forgetfulness, inability to sleep, increased propensity to making mistakes, lessened energy, outbursts of rage, and carelessness. None of these symptoms would seem to make survival easier or more likely.
Being faced with a need to survive, there are 7 emotions that arise and must be overcome:
* Fear - Once one recognizes a survival situation, one of the initial reactions noted is fear. It is said to be a perfectly normal reaction; however, fear is pictured as the enemy - the "mind killer," that can drastically lessen ability to make clear decisions. This, in turn, is said to lessen the chances for survival. In an effort to minimize one's fears, it is suggested to train in realistic situations to condition oneself to have a "hard-wired" positive approach to setting survival priorities and getting busy meeting them. This trained reaction can instill confidence that one can overcome fear and do what must be done. As one example, individuals with a phobia of insects, the outside, the darkness, etc. will need to work to overcome these fears enough to perform survival tasks and meet their survival needs, such as gathering firewood in a wilderness setting and sleeping in such a setting.
* Anxiety – Typically, anxiety and fear appear to run hand-in-hand. Anxiety may start as an uneasy feeling in the pit of one's stomach, but by the time the fears are added into the mix, anxiety may quickly spiral out of control. Anxiety will often take over the mind and quickly make it difficult to make rational decisions. Anxiety is portrayed as a serious barrier to focusing on the tasks at hand. It is noted that, typically, once some of the critical survival needs have been met, anxiety will be easier to keep at bay.
* Panic - We are warned that if fear and anxiety are left unchecked, panic will set in. Panic will lead to impulsive actions and loss of self control and may lead to dire consequences, including death.
* Anger – One can imagine that it is, more or less, inevitable that in a survival situation there will be problems. With the endless possibilities of things that can go wrong and probably will, it is not surprising to read a prediction that tempers may flare in such a context. But anger, it is said to sap one’s energy, rationality, and will to live. Finding other ways to channel this emotion into constructive work will, whether in a long or short term survival situation, seems more useful to the commentators than losing one's temper.
* Depression – An overall sense of depression is noted as common in wilderness survival situations, especially if alone. Overwhelming depression is said to lead to the body shutting down, and not unlike anxiety, causing one to give up hope. Staying positive and staying constructively busy is suggested to combat depression. It seems that while humans are physically trying to improve their lives, by means of building a fire, making shelter, gathering water or food, there is less tendency to become depressed.
* Guilt – Often accompanying a survival situation is some loss of life. Those immediately surviving, but still in peril, may feel guilt, we are told, both due to taking responsibility for the death(s) or from a sense of guilt simply because they are alive and the other person is dead. This is called survivor's guilt. The commentator's note that such a state of mind should be combated by maintaining a positive outlook, and possibly using religion to help deal with the pain following another's death.
* Boredom and Loneliness – An often unanticipated side effect of being in a survival situation, boredom and loneliness are both said to contribute to lowering morale. The commentors suggest that it is important that the survivor keep his or her mind busy and spirits up.

"I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".
She then Got involved with the local Hoodoo Voodoo's of the area and new doors where opened to her concerning communicating with the dead.

Author of 49 books about history, hauntings and the unexplained in America for Whitechapel Press and Barnes & Noble Press respectively. He is the founder and president of the “American Ghost Society”, a national network of ghost hunters that collects stories of ghost sightings and haunted houses and uses investigative techniques to track down evidence of the supernatural.
Taylor was born on September 24, 1966 in Decatur, Illinois, a Midwestern city that is steeped in legend and lore. Even the hospital in which he was born is allegedly haunted by a phantom nun! He grew up fascinated with “things that go bump in the night”, as well as the writings of haunted travel writer Richard Winer and legendary ghost hunter, Harry Price. In school, Taylor was well-known for his interest in the paranormal and often took friends on informal ghost tours of haunted places all over downstate Illinois. He would later turn this interest into his full-time career.
In 1989, Taylor started working in a bookstore and a few years later, he wrote his first book on ghosts. It was called Haunted Decatur and delved into the ghosts and hauntings of the city where he grew up. He also created a tour that took guests to places that he had written about in the book. The book became an immediate success and its popularity, along with his previous experiences with ghost hunting, established Taylor as an authority on the supernatural. The book and tour led to media and public appearances and numerous requests to investigate ghostly phenomena.
In 1996, Taylor organized a group of ghost enthusiasts into an investigation team and the American Ghost Society was launched, gained over 600 members in the years that followed. The organization continues today as one of America’s largest and most honored research groups.
In 1998, Taylor moved his operations, which now included the American Ghost Society, a history and hauntings bookstore and a publishing company called Whitechapel Press, to Alton, Illinois, near St. Louis. In Alton, Taylor started his second tour company, Alton Hauntings, which took guests to local haunted places in the small Mississippi River town. He would go on to put the place on the map as “one of the most haunted small towns in America.”
Taylor remained in Alton until 2005, when he returned to Decatur. By then, he had also established two more tour companies, in Springfield, Illinois and another company that arranges overnight stays in haunted places called American Hauntings. These tours, including those in Decatur and Alton, were organized under the heading of the Illinois Hauntings Ghost Tours. Taylor also continued the operation of Whitechapel Press, which specializes in ghost-related titles and has more than a dozen authors working under its banner.
In 2006, Taylor also launched the Weird Chicago Tours, which are based on his book, Weird Illinois, which was published by Barnes & Noble Press. In 2007, Illinois Hauntings also launched ghost tours in Lebanon, Illinois and in Jacksonville.
In 2007, Taylor incorporated as Dark Haven Entertainment, Inc., a parent company for Whitechapel Press, the Illinois Hauntings Tours and for the Ghosts of the Prairie Website and Magazine. The new company also handles the film rights to Troy's ghost books and stories. Currently, there are three of his works optioned for possible film and television production.
Along with writing about the unusual and hosting tours, Taylor is also a public speaker on the subject of ghosts and hauntings and has spoken to literally hundreds of private and public groups on a variety of paranormal subjects. He has appeared in newspaper and magazine articles about ghosts and has also been fortunate enough to be interviewed hundreds of times for radio and television broadcasts about the supernatural. He has also appeared in a number of documentary films, several television series and in one feature film about the paranormal.
He currently resides in Central Illinois with his wife, Haven, in a decidedly non-haunted house.

Several other skills are often referenced as being desirable or necessary. These include proficiency with firearms, climbing and mountaineering techniques, making rope from readily available material, making rafts or boats, knot tying, knife usage, and basic toolmaking. Of these, familiarity with the use of a knife is usually paramount as the knife may be used to build shelter, process material for fire-building, create wood tools, and for defense.
Survival situations are sometimes resolved by finding one's way to safety, or one may need to move to find a more suitable location to wait for rescue. The sources observe that to do either of these safely requires some navigation equipment and skills. Types of navigation include:
* Celestial navigation, using the sun and the night sky to locate the cardinal directions and to maintain course of travel
First aid (wilderness first aid in particular) can help a person survive and function with injuries and illnesses that would otherwise kill or incapacitate him/her. Common and dangerous injuries include:
* Using a map and compass together, particularly a topographic map
* "Navigation by observation" of terrain features on a map or otherwise known
* Using a GPS receiver, if one is available
* Lacerations, which may become infected
* Bites or stings from venomous animals, such as: snakes, scorpions, spiders, bees, stingrays, jellyfish, catfish, stargazers, etc.

* Sprains, particularly of the ankle
* Poisoning from consumption of, or contact with, poisonous plants or poisonous fungi.
