Paranormal investigation tools

Investigating the paranormal requires more than expensive tools. It takes the right mindset and attitude. It also takes heart.

I want to ask all paranormal ninjas a question. Who do you think was the first person to hear and EVP? I think the answer is Thomas Watson. Watson was the one who heard “Watson come here, I need you on the Bell telephone machine.

It seems like it’s almost monthly that new equipment comes out that is a must for research teams. I see these items on the various paranormal gear sites and wonder which of the TV ghost hunting shows will be the first to preview this item, which in turn will make it a must have item.

According to the “world wide web”, the first formal examination of apparitions and witchcraft began in the mid-19th century mainly in England. One of the first groups formed in Western society was the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) which was founded in London, England in the late 1880s (which still exists today). The founders of the SPR, the first organization to conduct a controlled study of the subject, began their research with data collection. They analyzed a huge amount of material, mainly on crisis appearances (reports of interactions of people dying or in life-threatening situations). One of the most important results of these early investigations was the book Phantasms of the Living, by Edmund Gurney, Frederic Myers and Frank Podmore, published in 1886. It presented several hundred thoroughly researched cases. The addition of carefully researched first-hand testimony and experimental results provided a body of evidence that is difficult to dismiss. His main “tools” at the time were mainly séances and psychics. They often used a still camera to document the events.

We’ve come a long way since then, I mean a long way. As paranormal investigators we use equipment such as digital cameras, digital recorders, laser grids, night vision cameras and EMF detectors. I’m sure there are many more pieces of equipment that other researchers use. So we really need to have all these “high tech” things to complete a paranormal investigation. I know we use this equipment mainly to document activity as it happens and to speak with entities and spirits. This documentation helps us explain the activity to whom we need.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? I think the same would be true of paranormal investigations. If you go into an investigation with no equipment except a pad of paper and a pencil to write down the events that might happen and then present that evidence to someone, they’ll think you’ve detected activity. Just because you didn’t record it on a video or audio recorder doesn’t mean you saw, heard or heard anything. Are we too dependent on our equipment? I think we do sometimes. I think sometimes we depend on it so much that we lose sight of the big picture of research. I truly believe that the best piece of equipment you could have as a paranormal investigator is what you have between your ears. Especially since you don’t need to put batteries in it. Don’t lose sight of the big picture and always remember why you became a paranormal investigator.

I would like to think that a successful paranormal investigation is not only based on how scientific or how advanced the tools are that we use during field investigation. I think this success is also based on how much we understand the existence of the paranormal and how we accept its existence. Great tools are embedded within our own personality. I believe that spirits are human beings, who still retain their emotions and intelligence after death. Therefore, they still behave exactly like us, and like us they would want respect for the living. As a paranormal investigator, I understand the concept of humility that is related to positive behavior: showing respect and reverence for the dead will always create positive energy that will in turn attract the spirit to participate in paranormal investigations. No one likes to be forced to do this. do anything Even in life, we don’t like being told to do things in an offensive way. Asking in a polite way. I think it will always get a more positive response from the listener and will definitely make them more cooperative. We must remember that we are trying to build a relationship with these spirits. I believe that if someone behaves in a hostile way towards the spirit by commanding the spirit to appear, so that the spirit can be captured, we should be prepared to feel the negative reaction of the spirit towards us or we suffer the failure to achieve success in the investigation. However, the technology we use during a paranormal investigation is not the most important thing that brings success, but a mere tool that helps us document the existence of spirits. I support and believe that the best attraction for spirits to participate in our investigations is to show respect and reverence to them.
