There are of course the Seven deadly sins and they do apply to ghost hunters.
1. Deadly sin: Envy
Did a fellow ghost hunter get the paranomal EVP you'd been waiting for? Did your colleague surpass you -- again -- in getting in touch with the dead via a Franks Box? You should absolutely acknowledge others' achievements but don't use them as a standard with which to measure your own. When you're envious of someone else's ghost hunting successes, you naturally want to undermine his reputation and the way others gravitate toward him. But in the long run, you're only undoing your own reputation.
Salvation: Bury your envy and start focusing on building a reputation as a team player. Figure out how you can start turning your envy into passion or positive energy.
2. Deadly sin: Gluttony
More is not always better. Though everyone is anxious to get positive proof that will make others believe you that Ghosts are real, none of that will matter if you don't care who you plow through to get to the top. While it's definitely OK to ghost hunt responsibility, it's more important to maintain a balance.
Salvation: One of the most critical mistakes regarding gluttony is not considering your team enough, Kusy and Holloway say.
"You don't need to belittle and diminish someone else ghost photo or paranomal investigation tecniques or documentation to be noticed. Work with your ghost hunting team so that you are all noticed for innovation and productivity and paranomal evidence. Make sure that you are in the lead of building a positive team climate; making everyone look good on a project will make you look good as a team player."
3. Deadly sin: Greed
Everyone is guilty of wanting more: more money, more power and more responsibility. The problem comes when you try to use your ghost hunting evidence to punish others, demand their loyalty or take all the credit for the work that others have done.
Salvation: It's best to focus your goals on the long term. If you only concentrate on quick, short-term gains, you'll probably do well in the moment but you won't be able to extend yourself to the next level.
4. Deadly sin: Lust
Lust in the workplace isn't limited to a haunted cemetery romance. You might lust after a nicer prohibited haunted location or even do things you shouldn't. But, spending your time focused on what you don't have or others' paranomal work achievements rather than working to further your own is a sure-fire career killer.
Salvation: "What length will you go satisfy this lust?" "If it extends to deceptions, badmouthing your fellowghost hunters or undermining the productivity of the team, then your emotions are ruling your actions with disastrous results. Go to your paranomal team leader and ask him or her to put you on a development plan that can segue you to that next new job in the organization."
5. Deadly sin: Pride
Personal success is your M.O. -- you have no problem taking credit for a great ghost photo, a EVP, EMf or Ghost video, even if it was a joint effort. You have the absolute belief that you're always right; you always want to be in control, and you think other people won't -- or can't -- do their jobs. While it's a good feeling to be right, no one is always right.
"When you are right and make sure that everyone else knows that they are proven wrong, you can be sure that you have lost their support in the future," .
Salvation: First, realize that building a reputation for getting things done right is to build a team that does it right together, they say. Remember that sharing credit with everyone who deserves it makes everyone accountable. Finally, give praise where it is due and you'll be shocked how much comes back to you, Kusy and Holloway say.
6. Deadly sin: Sloth
If you're lazy, complacent or indifferent about your ghost hunting, you're on the express train to nowhere. Just because you've been successful in the past doesn't mean that success will carry you through the rest of your career. Sloth becomes toxic when there's a continued pattern that becomes counter-productive to workplace productivity.
Salvation: There are several steps you can take to keep your laziness in check, Kusy and Holloway say. First, take stock of yourself and determine where the source of your laziness lies. Are you bored? Do you need to be more challenged in your role? Next, make a specific plan to increase your productivity at work. Figure out how you will measure your expectations and make sure it's feasible, they say.
7. Deadly sin: Wrath
Anger and malice benefit no one at a haunted paranormal investigation location. Harboring secret hatred or angst toward your fellow ghost hunters, colleagues or general paranomal environment will only create an atmosphere of negativity and abuse around you.
Salvation: Any pessimistic feelings you have toward co-ghost hunters or haunted location are bound to surface eventually. If you're angry with your home or personal life, figure out what is bothering you and then see if you can talk to somone about it. If you're unhappy with your ghost hunting experiencesin general, it might be time to start looking for a newhobby like hunting for real chupacbras.
The SEVEN DEADLY SINS — lust, envy, gluttony, sloth, greed, anger and pride — have had an enormous impact on the moral compass of the modern world. ...

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
