12th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 2327 views. 4 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
After witnessing table tipping for the first time this weekend, I look at the history behind it, how a scientist debunked it back in the early 19th century and tell you all about what happened on the night.

6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 1640 views. 2 comments. General.
People are very quick these days to label any sort of haunting where someone may feel uneasy as demonic. Why is there a trend to label everything demonic and what is considered to be a true demonic haunting?

Can an object become haunted?
6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 1880 views. 2 comments. General.
Can objects really become haunted? How does it work and how does one even establish if an object is haunted? I look at the general theories amongst the paranormal field on what can possibly cause an object to become haunted. Is it even possible? How can you tell?

Why is the paranormal referred to as pseudoscience
6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 543 views. 0 comments. General.
As investigators we often go around saying, "we take a scientific approach to investigating". Apparently we shouldn't be using this term because the paranormal is actually a pseudoscience. Here is why. Does it really matter? Depends on you and who you are trying to convince.

The human pendulum
5th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 854 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
I was lucky enough over the weekend to be able to experience an old school Victorian Era method called the Human Pendulum. Here is a recap of how it went.

Regardless of your views, you must be respectful!
30th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 390 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
We all have different opinions, but respect is key. If you go into a location being disrespectful to their wishes, it can cause damage to the field because they might just close the doors to everyone else.

The sad origin story behind the Mel Meter 8704
30th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 3207 views. 4 comments. General, Paranormal Equipment.
The Mel Meter 8704 is one of the most used pieces of equipment out in the field. There is actually a really sad but touching story as to how the Mel Meter came to be.

Could peripheral drift illusion cause us to see 'shadow people'
23rd October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 2222 views. 2 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Shadow people are a common sighting of those in the paranormal field. I myself have witnessed this on several occasions and with one common thing, it has always been in low lighting. You know me, I like to look for the rational for everything. I came across an interesting thought that could offer an explanation as to why we see these shadow people in the dark.

Day of the dead - Dia de los Muertos
21st October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 601 views. 0 comments. General, Famous Paranormal Cases.
Its is a tradition we hear more and more of as it is starting to become more prominent in all countries all over the world. Sugar skulls are very much in fashion but what is their significance? With this tradition being celebrated now all over the world, some may not realise what it is they are actually celebrating or it's meaning or significance. What is the Day of the dead all about?

Video ITC
20th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 871 views. 0 comments. General, Famous Paranormal Cases.
ITC is all the rage these days predominately with audio in the form of ghost boxes. Way back 1985, Klaus Schreiber developed video ITC which people still today are trying to improve and experiment with. So what is all about? Is it spirits we are looking at or is it pareidolia?

We develop and evolve - it is all a part of our journey
20th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 432 views. 0 comments. General.
I am not the same person I was all those years ago when I started, but it is all an important part of the journey. You may think differently to the past and may even think 'What the hell was I thinking?' but we have all been there and it is all about growth that comes with experience.

What is Kirlian photography?
16th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 1624 views. 0 comments. General.
Kirlian photography is also known as aura photography. You don't even need a camera to get a picture. Where did the concept come from and how does it work? Is it spiritual or is it science?

Should we be trying to communicate in languages other than English?
16th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 542 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
You know when you goto a foreign country where people speak little to no English and it can be a task just to ask where the bathroom is? Did you ever think maybe that is how a spirit feels sometimes? Is a language barrier hindering investigations or in the afterlife, do we magically become bilingual? Here are my thoughts and experience on the subject.

What is infrasound?
15th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 861 views. 1 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Infrasound is yet another phenomenon that can cause us to believe we are having a paranormal experience. Having an understanding of how it works is actually beneficial to investigators not only to help us debunk hauntings, but we can use it to aid our experiments as well.

Does the lunar cycle influence paranormal activity?
11th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 2533 views. 0 comments. General.
We often claim that paranormal activity is at it's highest around the full moon. What does the moon do and does it influence paranormal activity?

A personal experience is that just that ..... It's personal
7th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 614 views. 0 comments. General.
We all started somewhere and usually it has stemmed from some sort of personal experience. While it is not something can be used as evidence, it is an important part of being an investigator because it reminds us why we are out there seeking these answers.

The fight or flight response
4th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 670 views. 0 comments. General.
When put under stress or confronted with something that you fear, what is your natural reaction? Your body goes into what is known as 'fight or flight' mode.  What is it and why do we react this way?

26th September 2017 Sarah Chumacero 425 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
The paranormal field is full of theories and claims, but how many of them are actually backed up by data?
