Maybe you’ve seen something you can’t explain, heard footsteps when no one was there or awakened to distorted voices and whisperings. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, this is the perfect time of year to take a closer look in the spirit of Halloween.
The existence of hauntings and poltergeists has been speculated throughout history. Are hauntings real? Is it possible to have left over business after we die or do our imaginations simply like being stretched far beyond what the eye can see?
When there's a steel electrical charge in the air giving us the sense we're not a lone, it's a feeling that's difficult to ignore. Slowly we find ourselves preoccupied with thoughts of the unknown and sleepless nights, before we're ready to consider a notion that doesn't seem real!
Interesting enough, hauntings and poltergeist activity aren’t nearly as dramatic as what we might think. Often it is just the opposite, with subtle yet consistent things we notice over time, that simply can not be explained.
When something does happen, and we’ve rationally considered other explanations, if we're still left with the unexplained, the stage to follow is usually wondering whether or not we’re o.k. or need further investigation.
Although it is commonly believed that there is a specific hour, between 2:00 am and 3:00 am for hauntings and paranormal activity, we can really expect to find activity at any hour day or night. There are, however, events associated with specific locations that can play over and over again, which are often confused with ghostly activity, which are more magnetic recordings than the haunting itself.
If you do find yourself with a ghost, spirits or entities, if at all possible try to find out what they want or contact someone who may know a little bit more about the situation such as a medium or investigator. If you chose to investigate on your own, always begin communication with protective prayer or meditation. You will also want to have ready, a DVR (digital voice recorders), tape recorders, candles and or paper to make notes. If you are in a group, carry separate notebooks and regroup at a later time to avoid confusion and compare anything you may have picked up alone.
