The 7 Steps To Begin Ghost Hunting

By Ghost Investigator Gina Lanier


Follow these 7 steps below and your on your way to a haunted adventure of your very own!

The fear of failure to face your own fears, more than anything else, holds people back. It paralyzes action. Couple this with ghost hunting and all is amplified by 10. And it makes failure inevitable. They may take the first step but you must learn to follow through in a timely manner. Tell your self you will investigate a location, by such and such a date physically, that is known to be haunted. So, go research it on the computer first. Then talk to people. Start with your friends and their friends. Then call or visit the haunted location. you don't need to bring anything with you or even go inside. see what you feel about it inside. go as many times as you need to get comfortable with it. Only to bring your equipment when your ready to investigate it. Well, think of it this way. Often you go on vacation, you take photos of what? the things that interest you.

Fortunately, even if you know nothing about the world of ghost chasing, you can begin with a dream of finding or photographing a real ghost, an apparition, or orb in the air, and then build a foundation under it. Once you got it research it further, show it to friends, document their reactions and feelings about what the Ghost photo is, or isn't of.

These Seven Simple Steps To Becoming A Ghost hunter/Paranormal Investigator have helped many that I let tag along with me, I hope it is a help to you and getting your ghost hunting, chasing, or paranormal Investigation under way:

The starting point of many great haunted adventures has been these seven simple steps. This is how many have begun. Remember most in the field of ghost hunting It is a profession that is mostly self taught.


1. Set a goal to capture a ghost on film, or EVP's or witness a haunting.

Back it up with a burning desire to research and get out and do it... Just sitting their reading this is the start, but go seek out a haunting. Investigate the known facts of what others say is happening. Question it! And of course do you believe it?

Did the ghost of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau of New Orleans just visit a downtown Hotel in Florida? It is said she appeared to 300 people and her head flew off and then the furniture shook then she disappeared not before saying " I'll be back"?

Sounds really Crazy? Go find out for your self. Investigate the haunting see if it's the truth! No matter what you hear it is yours to discern if it is true.


2. Begin accumulating friends and family's Ghost stories, ghost photos, or talk about a haunted location, other then already documented cases.

This also a great thing to start for a novice. Talk with friends family or people you work with or meet. You might be surprised at what people close to you know or what they have had happened to them or their family, don't be surprised at what they may tell you. With a regular get together you might start your own haunted group. Or you might go join one with an established group.

Nothing else is possible without this. You can't move forward until you start a learning program. Either your personal learning or as a group it will only spark you to go out and seek a haunting.


3. Use your current Ideas as a springboard to later ghost hunting success. Learn while you earn valuable new insights.

Take the long view. Decide what you can handle and what you won't. Many people will not investigate the spot where a recent murder has occurred. Others will not investigate Suicides, or where the terminally ill have been or mentally disturbed have died. Specialties in haunting and type of ghost, or the choice of what type of haunting you investigate is yours. Historical or recent.

4. Experiment in ways to set up finding a new or different really haunted location and documenting what people have to say.

You might need a little courage to walk up to a stranger and say ...
"Do you think this place is haunted?"

I have a friend who met his wife from that statement. It's a great opening line. you might be shocked at the answer you get. Or ask do you believe in ghost.

5. Search for ghost hunting equipment that you already might have.,

Camera's, video or digital recorders voice recorders, flashlights, and etc. Look through the newspapers and on the web for ghost hunting products or equipment you can afford at a good quality and at a reasonable prices.


6. Read everything you can find on your chosen haunted ghost investigating field. Take a haunted walk or city ghost tour. analyze the haunted location and the story you hear. Remember this is a form of research. Check out a haunted cemetery, or haunted American battle Field or haunted house or haunted hotel. Ghost may be right in your back yard and you don't know it.

Remain flexible. Be willing to change your mind if you get different information. It is always good to remain skeptical of anyone's claims as well as what you might uncover. Just because this is one persons account of a haunting it does not mean that yours will be the same. and if it is then your investigation gives validation to theirs. don't be afraid to investigate a well known overly investigated haunting.

You'd be a fool not to, you will see how much new information and details surface to your investigation that will answer your questions and give you more to ponder.


7. Implement your plans with courage and persistence.

Do you know how you will react if you see a ghost? Will your heart race, will you run away? Have complete faith in your ability to succeed and never, ever give up. No two experiences are the same. And here are two steps you can take immediately to start moving toward your
personal ghost hunting success:

The most important thing is just to begin. To move forward one step at a time, learning and growing as you go. There's enough haunted ghost stories and their information available in virtually every location of the United States of paranormal happenings for you to become knowledgeable enough to achieve success. But taking the haunted ghost filled first step is a necessity.

Every novice haunted investigations requires an act of faith and courage, a bold leap into the real unknown. Only one in ten people who want to start their own ghost hunts or haunted investigations ever develop enough courage to begin, and enough persistence to continue. They really don't know their fear level until they get out there and do it. And the only thing to be afraid of is that first step. Here follows my 7 steps to staring you on the road to becoming a Ghost Hunter.


Ghost Hunting & Investigating Paranormal Activity may be Adventurous and Fun but Permission should ALWAYS be sought so that Private Residences are Respected, Public buildings Not Trespassed! Abandoned areas should STILL be respected and permission sought to be on them, while Condemned areas should not be trespassed, period - This includes cemeteries also.

Stop by the local police station and ask if it would be permitted for you to be on any area or place, and to also let them know you will be there if it's ok for you to do so, (including permission of owners should be sought). Vandalism is unacceptable, and could land you in jail or any other amount of trouble.

GINA LANIER is a New Orleans native who has studied paranormal activities, the occult and hauntings for nearly thirty years. She has participated in and conducted large-scale location hauntings and recently has shifted her focus to include the investigation and study of haunted toys such as dolls, toy furniture, games and other hallmarks of childhood.

Gina’s paranormal studies stem from several childhood experiences with the unknown including witnessing full body apparitions and clairaudient encounters with deceased relatives. These experiences continued beyond childhood and this is when Gina resolved to learn as much as possible about psychic and paranormal phenomenon to determine what, exactly, was making contact with her and with others who claimed to have been contacted from the Other Side.

Gina owns and operates a construction and refurbishment company in the Greater New Orleans area and this has afforded her exposure to many allegedly haunted locations and people over the years; several of these clients welcomed Gina’s expertise and insight when it came to documenting and investigating their haunted homes and businesses.

Gina Lanier has been selected by Haunted America Tours as one of the lead investigators for its soon-to-be-launched Haunted Investigations Team (HIT). If you would like to contact Gina, please submit your request and as much information as possible about your situation to her care of the Haunted America Tours website.

Be sure to check back to visit Gina and all the HIT members in the HIT Forum section, COMING SOON!
