Overnight ghost hunting?
If you watch any of the paranormal related programs on television, like "Ghost Hunters" on the SyFy channel, "Ghost Adventures" on the Travel Channel, or any of the other ghost hunter programs on TV, then you might come away with the idea that these paranormal researcher teams can do a complete and thorough paranormal examination and investigation, in only one, single night. I'm not a ghost hunter or paranormal researcher myself, therefore I can't say with any degree of authority or certainty, that this is not possible. But somehow, to my way of thinking, I just can't understand how it would be possible to really do justice to a paranormal investigation in such a short period of time.
If ghosts are real, and I'm going to make an assumption for the sake of this article that they are, then these spirits are most likely the disincarnate souls of people, people no different than you or I, people who once walked the earth with a physical body. Some of these ghosts or spirits, especially if they are newly deceased are probably confused as to their state of being, where they are, and what they are supposed to do next. I don't know anything about this realm of reality, and if it is real, then I don't think any other living human being does either.
To really research a supposedly haunted location and, to do a complete and thorough job of it in my opinion would take not a single night, not even a couple of nights. But could conceivably take a week or longer. I sincerely believe that it could take that amount of time to really investigate and get to the bottom of any potential paranormal activity or phenomena that may be present. I would think that the initial part of the investigation might be, as portrayed by these television ghost hunters, with a walk through by the investigators, using their hand held EMF meters and other instruments. But after that initial portion of the investigation is completed then I think that the next phase of the investigation would be to allow all the equipment, that is at the disposal of the paranormal research team to be set up, and let run continually, day and night for at least a week, with no interruptions, except only to change batteries or tapes and to perform any service the equipment may require. This would help prevent any human contamination, whether that contamination be accidental or intentional. And I do mean even in the day! Who says that paranormal activity happens only at 3:00 AM, or the witching hour? If ghosts are real, then I believe they would most likely be active day and night. After all, I don't think they need to sleep, do they? I suppose it is possible that we may be more aware of them at night, simply because of our own brain activity and senses. Our brains and vision may have evolved, as a defense mechanism by primitive man to be more aware of any potential dangers or threats at night, and consequently our own senses may be more acutely aware of any unusual or paranormal type occurrences. However the problem is, our senses, in my opinion cannot be fully trusted at night, simply because the human body and brain evolved to be more alert and aware during the day. Human beings, by nature are not nocturnal creatures.
The biggest problem I see with doing an extended investigation of this sort, would be with the analyzing of all the video and audio evidence. Looking at many hours and days of audio and video evidence could be rather problematic for the persons actually doing the analyzing. To help prevent zoning out by the analyst or analysts, the amount of time actually viewing this evidence would need, by necessity, to be cut into many short sessions, and could possibly take several weeks in itself. But this just may be the price to be paid, to obtain a complete and thorough investigation. And I also believe that any evidence obtained in this manner would be much more compelling and credible.
I’ve lived in California most of my life, but was born in Michigan. I’m 64 years old and just recently became interested in the paranormal after several unexplained paranormal type events happened in my own home. I am somewhat of a skeptic and I am still not totally convinced in the reality of ghosts or any other paranormal type phenomena, but I am open-minded on this subject and that is why I created my website Ghosts! Are they real? The URL of the website is http://www.openmindedskeptic.net/ .
Little is known about why
or how hauntings occur. Thousands of hauntings
have been systematically investigated by researchers
and parapsychologists since the late 19th century.
Many explanations have been proposed, but there
is no conclusive evidence to support one more
strongly than another. Federic W. H. Myers,
one of the founders of the Society For Psychical
Research (SPR), London, who did extensive research
of apparitions in the late 19th century, believed
that most hauntings are fragmentary and meaningless,
the bits and pieces of an energy residue left
by the living after their death. Others who
have built on Myers' theory propose that hauntings
do not involve ghostly personalities, but are
those recordings of energy that take on personalities
to percipients who are psychically sensitive.
Psychic sensitivity may account for diverse
experiences phenomena and another does not.
Elenor Sidgwick, former secretary of the SPR,
theorized that hauntings are a form of psychometry.
Just as an object appears to absorb and retain
the 'vibrations' of it's owner, which manifest
as impressions when the object is handled by
a medium or psychic, then houses might also
retain memories or psychic impressions. A house
could incorporate the thoughts, actions and
feelings of it's former occupants, which then
manifest as a haunting to psychically sensitive.
HUNTING EQUIPMENT & GUIDE:
hunting can be an expensive or inexpensive endeavor
(yep, inexpensive). It all depends how much
you want to spend. Investigators have shown
significant results with equipment which is
very affordable, so don't let pricing discourage
you. Truth be told, you can document and detect
ghosts and spirits with a variety of items.
Of course the more you have the better, but
everyone needs to start somewhere.

How can you say ghost exist unless you try to
experience it yourself? If you are not willing
to try, then you have no factual basis for your
conclusion. To put this another way, don't decide
it before you try it. All beliefs come from
a experience. Many believe people for their
word, others not so trusting simply need to
be shown. And still more do not believe what
they see even if it shoved in their face.

SOME ESSENTIALS FOR SUCCESSFUL
CONTACT WITH THE OTHER SIDE
There are several important
things to consider when embarking on this traditional
attempt to reach the “Other Side”
– simple signposts on a road less traveled
that can mean the difference between success
or failure, contact and a waste of time.
First and foremost there must be a defined PURPOSE.
This should be established at the start and
should be clearly defined so that all participants
are absolutely certain that they understand
the reason or need for the séance. These
reasons could vary – contact with a dead
relative, contact with the spirit world for
purposes of divination, guidance or comfort
– but they should be defined and, most
importantly, adhered to throughout the process.
Equally important is the talent
and skill of the conducting MEDIUM. This should
be a person whose abilities have been proven
in prior séances; this can usually be
determined by word of mouth recommendations:
remember, cost does not always determine quality
in this process and some very skilled mediums
offer their services for nothing, or next to
nothing. Other important qualities to look for
are evidence of compassion and sincerity on
the part of the conducting medium as these are
important to the contact process. In the event
that such a qualified medium is not available,
a person who displays the highest level of empathy,
sensitivity and seriousness can sit in as a
reasonable substitute. This must be someone
that all agree upon and who has demonstrated
at least circumspectly the ability to make contact
with the Other Side.

In the 21st century we have
come to know that the worlds paranormal mysteries
still surround us. From objects to places nothing
haunted nowadays goes un noticed. Haunted dolls
on Ebay, printings books and equipment to find
ghost. Television movies and paranormal news
from around the world. Courses in Ghost hunting
and of course the very real haunted internet.
And many skeptics say it's
Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
The Tempest (4.1.168-170) Shakespeare
