Thinking your house may be haunted can be a scary thing! But keep in mind that a spirit is just a person without a body. Not there to hurt you, just to get your attention and maybe some help. If you think your house may be haunted, here is a list of possible signs. . Do you hear unexplained noises? Footsteps? Heavy breathing? Do these happen when you are the only one home? Do lights turn on and off on their own? Do you leave a room, then come back and the light is on? Or the opposite, lights being off when you know you turned them on? Do you have furniture move, or doors open and close by themselves? Do you have items disappearing, then reappearing hours or maybe days later? Do you put something down, and then come back and it’s gone? Or put in another location? Have you ever noticed a spot in your home that is unexplainably colder than anywhere else? Do you ever experience a feeling of being watched? Or the feeling that someone else is in a room with you when you know you are alone? Do you have pets that act oddly about a room or spot in your house? A pet that refuses to go in a room? Have you ever encountered any out of place odors? Perfume or sulfur? Have you ever heard unexplainable whispering, shouting, or heavy breathing? Have you ever had your hair or clothes tugged with no visible culprit? Have you ever seen a shadow that can’t be explained or figured out? Have you ever seen an apparition? The most overt sign would be an actual physical assault. Have you ever been pushed or shoved by someone or something you can’t see? If you start to notice anything you can’t explain or figure out, try keeping a journal and writing down every experience. Try to find real world reasons for any phenomena you experience. Faulty plumbing, loose or uneven floorboards, loose hinges on doors, things like that. And try to keep in mind; ghosts very rarely hurt people, so try not to be too afraid! Written by : Jordan Johnson
One of the strangest, yet unproven, phenomenon that occurs in the world of the paranormal is object attachment. It is believed that people can attach their residual energy to a favorite object such as a chair, desk, table, etc... There have been cases out there where people have experienced paranormal activity shortly after purchasing an antique. In most cases this activity is residual, but in some, intelligent hauntings followed. An example of this could be someone purchases what they think is an antique vase, they get it to their home, and suddenly paranormal activity starts happening in thier home. What they have actually purchased was an urn. People have been known to sell urns to consignment and antique shops after the contents have been emptied. Museums can also be places where activity occurs due to object attachment. In an episode of Ghost Hunters, TAPS visits a museum that had an exhibit containing artifacts from the Titanic. Since the exhibit went up, the museum had been experiencing all kinds of strange occurrences. It was concluded by TAPS that they believed the artifacts may contain the residual energy of the souls who perished on the ship. So the next time you think of purchasing an antique, consider the fact that you may be bringing a ghost into your home. Written by Steve
Conditions that seem to help these paranormal events are ones that influence the earth’s magnetic field including solar flares, geomagnetic storms and full moons. During the conditions that charge up the earth’s electromagnetic field, it is thought that the ghost can tap into the extra energy .
Extra solar activity in the form of solar flares affects the earth’s geomagnetic field. Some great paranormal evidence has been collected during times when there is solar activity such as mega flares and geomagnetic storms. Conditions where either an M Class flare, X Class flare or a Mega Flare has occurred are ripe for ghost investigations. When the geomagnetic field either indicates an unsettled or storm condition that is another good time for paranormal investigations.
Lunar phases also affect the earth’s geomagnetic field. The earth’s electromagnetic field is affected when the moon is closer such as when it is full. People and paranormal activity are both influenced when the gravitational force is affected during a full moon.
It is believed that during a thunderstorm a higher vibration frequency is reached by both the living and the not so living, which can make the odds a bit better for somebody to spot a ghost.
Solstice and Equinox
It is also believed that the solstice and equinoxes that occur every year present more opportune times for paranormal investigation. This is not based on science; it is because cultures from around the world believe that the solstice and equinoxes are a supernaturally important time.
