Many times we have received requests for investigations where people report activity in their home that was not apparent until they started a renovation project. What do renovations and the paranormal have in common? Well, you are changing the physical surroundings of a spirit that may be dormant. By doing this you spark it’s curiosity and sometimes anger it. Like some people, some spirits resist change. Also the energy expelled from doing the work is enough to awaken residual energies that had otherwise fizzled out. The activity can range from bumps and bangs, voices, shadows, apparitions, to being physically pushed or hit. So the next time you do a project on your home and start experiencing strange things, you may have awaken a ghost.
