28th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 1162 views. 0 comments. Paranormal Equipment, General, Paranormal Investigation, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Let's look at the different things you can do to investigate the paranormal, without all the electronic devices. Don't forget there is also one very important piece of equipment that we may not use to it's full potential ..... yourself!

Are we capable of finding answers?
25th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 194 views. 0 comments. Supernatural Synchronicity, General.
Is it quite simply 'human nature' that is stopping up from getting the answers we seek in terms of paranormal phenomena? Are we setting ourselves up to fail when we don't specifically know what we are looking for?

The Akashic Records and our soul
25th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 279 views. 1 comments. Paranormal Theories, General.
The spiritual community often talk about things like the Akashic Records and a life review for our soul after we die. What is our soul? Do we learn lessons in each lifetime? What are the Akashic Records? I explore these concepts further.

Are animals psychic?
25th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 241 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Theories.
Our pets seem to know when we are about to arrive home. They know when a storm is coming. They know when we are sick or depressed and need comfort. They can find their way home despite being kms away. They seem to have traits of what humans would describe as psychic abilities. So are animals psychic?

The curious case of Kelly Cahill
22nd April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 1412 views. 0 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General, Conspiracy Theories.
A case so famous, it was even referenced on the reboot of the X Files happened right at my doorstep here in the Dandenongs of Melbourne Victoria. What is the case of Kelly Cahill?

Sharpening the axe
21st April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 248 views. 0 comments. General.
Abraham Lincoln once said "Give me 6 hours to cut down a tree and I will spend the first 4 sharpening the axe". Why is it important we apply this philosophy to the way we approach paranormal research

Residual VS Intelligent Haunting
17th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 567 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Investigators often like to label a potential 'haunting' as either residual or intelligent. What do these mean and how do you tell the difference?

Musical Ear syndrome, Tinnitus and the paranormal
12th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 632 views. 0 comments. Paranormal Investigation, General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Do you ever hear music when there isnt any music playing? While some attribute this to perhaps something paranormal, it could also be a case of Musical Ear Syndrome. What about when our ears start ringing out of nowhere? Some believe it is a frequency shift meaning a spirit is nearby, where as it could also be a case on tinnitus. Lets look into these phenomenas more closely

Is it naive for us to think that paranormal phenomena could be limited to just the one explanation
11th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 278 views. 0 comments. Supernatural Synchronicity, General.
Why is it that some believe one thing while others are so set on another. Could it be there really is no one size fits all answer when it comes to the paranormal? While we say we need to be open minded to certain things, is it naive for us to think that paranormal phenomena could be limited to just the one explanation?

Trusting that gut feeling
11th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 277 views. 0 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General, Paranormal Investigation.
Trust your gut is a term we all often use. I know I do all the time. In a field where we are always promoting rational and critical thinking, should we be trusting our gut feelings when it comes to paranormal investigating?

Automatic Writing
9th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 328 views. 0 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General, Paranormal Investigation.
What is automatic writing? Is this a trusted method of spirit communication? What should people be mindful of?

Active imagination
8th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 239 views. 1 comments. General.
How can we bridge the gap between our conscious and unconscious mind? Is this the key to interpreting our dreams? How can we apply individuation to our role in the paranormal field?

Suggestive Memory
4th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 295 views. 1 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
While we love investigating with our friends and with groups of people, can we be too influenced by our peers? Can a person 'implant' a memory into someone else? How does this affect how we recall our investigations?

The Stone Tape Theory
2nd April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 2291 views. 2 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, Paranormal Investigation, General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
What is the stone tape theory and what is it all about? Where did it come from and is there any merit to the claims?

Bats and Frequency
31st March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 218 views. 0 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
Bats use echolocation to communicate and navigate with one another. As the sound is ultrasonic, it is not something we hear with our own ears. If you are doing an investigation outside, could a digital recorder pick up these ultrasonic sounds which are then confused with something paranormal?

Thoughtography
31st March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 256 views. 0 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
Can a person 'burn' an image from their thoughts onto film? How is it different to psychic or spirit photography? Is it all a hoax?

Unperceived existence and the paranormal
26th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 282 views. 2 comments. Supernatural Synchronicity, General.
If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s nobody around to hear, does it make a sound? Is the moon there when nobody looks? In the same vein, is paranormal phenomena happening when there is no one there to observe it? Is paranormal phenomena only occurring because we are there?

The doorway effect
24th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 533 views. 1 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Do you ever walk into the room with an intention and then suddenly as you enter the room you have completely forgotten why you walked in the room to begin with? This can fall under a memory phenomena called 'The Doorway Effect'. The main trigger - walking through a doorway. So what does this mean for how we recall information during our paranormal investigations?
