Walking under ladders, black cats crossing your path and broken mirrors. These are just some of the common superstitions that have seemed to become a part of our normal life. Where did they actual come from and what is their significance? I look at some popular superstitions and their origins.
We need to learn and grow from our mistakes and use the lessons to our advantage. The best way to do this is through experimentation.
Scrying is an ancient art of divination. It has also been adapted by paranormal investigators as a technique to make contact with the spirit world. What is the history behind scrying and how do you do it?
The Ganzfeld experiment is a controversial experiment originally used by parapsychologists to test telepathy and clairvoyance. Over the years it has since been adapted by paranormal investigators with the thought that by depriving our senses, we are potentially opening up our minds for a spirit to deliver us some sort of message or have a paranormal experience. The question is, does it work? Depends who you ask.
We all of course love all things paranormal, but there are a lot of non paranormal reasons why we go out every weekend.
We certainly live in a technological age. Paranormal investigation in the modern day is overcome with different gadgets reading all sorts of things that we assume can help us detect the presence of a spirit. So why is it then paranormal researchers are turning back to the old school methodology? Why haven't we made any ground breaking discoveries along with the advancement of equipment? Perhaps it is because modern day investigators aren't looking for the same things researchers once were and are more motivated by an experience than validation?
To provoke or not to provoke. It can become a really heated topic amongst investigators. Just because we don't see them, a lot of people believe that spirits were once people and so should be treated with respect. While this is true, how do you then deal with the negative nasties that weren't so nice in life either. It's all about picking your moments.
It is quite common especially during a paranormal investigation to see something out of the corner of your eye, but is it really paranormal? Here is all you need about blind spots and how once again, our eyes cannot be trusted.
What is the Butterfly Effect/Chaos Theory and where did it come from? Does it have a connection with parallel universe? Does paranormal activity have a connection with parallel universes? Just some musings of my own.
It is an old school technique that doesn't require any equipment. It encourages you to think, debunk and investigate. Sometimes we don't need the flashy stuff, all we need is a knock.
