18th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 276 views. 0 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
In the early hours of the morning on March 18th 1910, famed magician and paranormal debunker Harry Houdini made the first controlled, powered flight in an aircraft for the first time in Australia.

Is time the key?
13th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 376 views. 3 comments. General, Supernatural Synchronicity.
Time seems to be one of the common denominators in a lot of different theories related to the paranormal. As out there as some theories may seem to some, many are driven by the concept and our perception of space and time. Could time and what is known as the 4th dimension be the key to understanding paranormal phenomena?

Things don't happen overnight
11th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 312 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
In a lot of ways, the paranormal field is very much a game of waiting and a game of patience.  On more than one occasion, your patience will be tested.  If you do not have a passion for the things that you do in this field, that patience will wear very thin.

The real 'spirit' in the room
10th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 302 views. 0 comments. General.
We walk around in the dark looking for a 'spirit'. What we may miss however is that there is some amazing 'human spirit' right here in front of us in the paranormal field.

Schrödinger's Cat, many worlds and the paranormal
6th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 303 views. 0 comments. General.
How can a hypothetical cat in a box make us look at the paranormal differently? Could the many worlds theory be a clue behind what is behind what we perceive as paranormal activity?

The strange disappearance of Frederick Valentich
1st March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 1312 views. 0 comments. Conspiracy Theories, General, Famous Paranormal Cases.
It remains one of the more puzzling events in Australian aviation. On October 21st 1978, at 6:19pm in the evening, pilot Fredrick Valentich took off from Moorobbin airport in Victoria and seemingly disappeared into thin air, but not before leaving an eerie radio transmission.

What exactly are we looking for?
27th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 374 views. 1 comments. General, Supernatural Synchronicity.
The way each investigator interprets information will depend on their beliefs, who they investigate with and how they learnt to investigate. We tend to overcomplicate things when we should be trying to keep it simple.

The ideomotor phenomena
24th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 419 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Equipment.
When using items such as a ouija board, automatic writing, dowsing rods and pendulums, you need to be aware of what is called the ideomotor phenomena.

Dance till you die!
22nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 251 views. 0 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
In 1518, there was an actual documented account of what was named 'The dancing plague'. People gathered on a street and danced for up to a month until they died.

We need to stop over embellishing
22nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 166 views. 0 comments. General.
Often when we are putting something on social media, we have to use carefully selected wording to make it interesting to the reader. When it comes to the Paranormal, it is easy to throw around terms such as 'shocking evidence'. If your content is good, you don't need to shortchange yourself with these embellished headlines. Let your work speak for itself.

Sleep paralysis
17th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 736 views. 2 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
What is sleep paralysis and what could potentially be causing these episodes? Is it paranormal or is it our brain? How is it different to a Night Terror?

Video VS Still Photography
16th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 320 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation, Paranormal Equipment.
On a paranormal investigation, if you had to choose between a video camera or a still camera such as a digital camera, which would you choose? A video camera is actually your most important piece of equipment, and I am going to tell you why.

Where do our beliefs lie?
16th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 315 views. 2 comments. General.
I recently conducted an online survey to get a gauge on what people believed in and what they didn't when it comes to the vast field of the paranormal. Here are the results

Getting down to the Soul of it
14th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 285 views. 1 comments. General, Supernatural Synchronicity.
For centuries, people have seemed to believe that a ghost or spirit is the soul of a person who was once living. What is our 'soul' and where do these beliefs stem from?

Lucid Dreaming
13th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 332 views. 0 comments. General.
What is Lucid Dreaming? This isn't a how to guide, more of an explanation of it's concept, studies and it's relation to consciousness.

De Ja Vu, Jamais Vu & Presque Vu
9th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 515 views. 0 comments. General.
We know about De Ja Vu, but did you know there are other phenomena that are also little quirks of our memory system? Here is all you need to know about all the Vu's!

Experimenter Enthusiasm
7th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 256 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Investigation.
Why is it that people report when using a new technique, piece of equipment or conducting a new experiment is that it seems to work initially and results later drop off. Is it a case of experimenter enthusiasm?

Are your experiences investigating the paranormal different as your research path changes?
2nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 234 views. 0 comments. General.
I am often asked by people, do you believe in ghosts? For me that is actually a really complicated question and the answer is not straight forward. It then led me to being asked the thought provoking question last week if the path my research has taken me down has 'ruined' my paranormal investigation experience. It has changed, but it is most definitely not 'ruined'.

Precognition VS Psychic Projection
30th January 2019 Sarah Chumacero 537 views. 2 comments. General, Supernatural Synchronicity.
Could Psychic Projection be responsible for some instances of Precognition? Could false memories influence the way we interpret our pre cognitive dreams?

We are the weirdos mister!
