We don't know everything, so make sure you really understand what you do know
21st October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 296 views. 2 comments. General.
A lot of people claim they know the alternative explanation to a paranormal but in reality, they sometimes have a misinformed misconception of it. This is where a problem can potentially start because how can we learn from each other if we are learning the wrong thing to begin with?

Beat your fear by empowering yourself with information
17th October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 411 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
Some people go into an investigation absolutely petrified due to misconceptions about the paranormal. By the end of the night they are ready for more because they realise it is nothing like they thought. Kids can be scared witless of things they think go bump in the night. When they learn what is really causing these noises etc, they are not scared anymore, because they are empowered by knowledge. Beat fear with knowledge

Exploding Head Syndrome
14th October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 567 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Do you ever experience a loud bang and see a bright light when you are falling asleep or waking? Do you feel a jolt that wakes you up at night? Sometimes associated with paranormal experiences, it could be a case of what is called 'Exploding Head Syndrome'.

The Rabbit Illusion
10th October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 713 views. 1 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Researchers have created a visual illusion in order to demonstrate a little brain trick called postdiction.  It has been nicknamed the ‘Rabbit Illusion’. It highlights the brain's tendency to 'fill in the blanks' and makes us perceive things differently to how they actually were.

The answers aren't all on the internet
4th October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 769 views. 1 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
Instead of using the internet as our source of information, should we be out there actually looking for answers? Maybe we also need to get off our smartphones and hand held cameras during an investigation and even put the equipment down, we could be missing something!

The Amityville Horror
3rd October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1212 views. 1 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
The case of the Amityville horror is probably one of the most well known paranormal cases in the world. It spawned many books, documentaries and was made into around 17 movies. It was the case that projected famous investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren into the spotlight and has been plagued with controversy and court cases. It has since been said to be a hoax by one of the parties involved, however over 40 years later, it still remains as one of the most well known paranormal cases in the world.

Ultrasonic sound and the paranormal
30th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 564 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
I have recently come across some research from different sources that show how ultrasound (ultrasonic noise) can effect digital recordings and appear to be what some would consider an 'EVP'. On the other hand, can ultrasound aid a paranormal investigation?

Purple Monkey Dishwasher
29th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1066 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
While you may attribute the phrase Purple Monkey Dishwasher to an episode of the Simpsons, it actually really means you need you to check where you are getting your information. Remember when you would play Chinese Whispers in school and you would end up with 'purple monkey dishwasher' type phrases? When you think of this, one has to wonder how much you can rely on paranormal reports, especially when told through a line of people.

The ghost frequency
23rd September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1089 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Investigation.
We know that infrasound can cause a person to believe that they are experiencing something paranormal. There is however one particular frequency that invokes these feelings and it really hits the mark. It is referred to as 'The Ghost Frequency'

The Baader-Meinhof phenonmenon
23rd September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 510 views. 2 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Do you ever have a conversation about a certain number. Suddenly you see that number everywhere you go. While some feel it may be a form of synchronicity, it is referred to as the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon. When it comes to the paranormal, the more we investigate, the more in tune we become and we notice more. Is it that we are becoming more open minded or is it the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon at work?

Unconscious bias and the paranormal
22nd September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 495 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Sometimes the way we interpret and assess information is done on a subconscious level that we are not even aware of. How does this effect us during a paranormal investigation?

Disembodied voices
21st September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 669 views. 1 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
There are a lot of fancy terms to describe certain paranormal experiences. One of those is a 'disembodied voice'. What exactly is it? Is it different to EVP? What are some explanations for this phenomena? I look at it from a few different angles to get you up to speed.

Does the paranormal field help salvage our history?
17th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 596 views. 2 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
History is history. It happened and we can't change it. There seems to be a tendency to demolish in the hopes we will forget, but it is important the legacy lives on and that we don't forget. In some cases, paranormal investigations are keeping old venues open saving them demolition by bringing in much needed cash ..... but for how long?

The book of the dead
17th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 607 views. 1 comments. General.
Ancient Egypt is a fascinating subject.  Equally fascinating was the belief that Ancient Egyptians had for the afterlife.  You only have to look at how a person was ‘prepared’ after they died to realise they had a tremendous respect for the soul and most definitely believed in some sort of afterlife.   They even had a book called the book of the dead which would help the soul navigate the afterlife to reach a place of eternal bliss with their loved ones.

Effectiveness of baseline readings
16th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 360 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Investigation, Paranormal Equipment.
While we do prep work and baseline readings before an investigation, does doing this during the day and investigating at night or even on a different day effect these results? How should we work with our baselines?
