It doesn't help that all these new TV shows try to get you to believe every creek and moan is a ghost that they have captured on film.
They have peoples imaginations in overdrive. The truth is, Every house has it's share of noises that are completely natural. They crack and pop and make all kinds of noises as they heat up or cool down.
Our team takes temperature reading every 10 minutes and log it in our journal, this can explain noises caught on camera or recordings that are viewed later. You never see those guys on TV do that. I guess thats why 97% of our investigations have no paranormal activities at all.
You don't need a ghost when you have....imagination! LOL
Ok, you want to see or hear a ghost.
The "experts" believe it takes alot of energy for a ghost to manifest it's self into a form that can be recognized.
Place yourself in an area that a known trama has taken place.
1. Keep an open mind.
2. Be receptive
3. Provide an energy source. (Be it from a device that emits a strong EMF field or allow it to draw from your energy)
And then just maybe....you will hear or see something you can't explain and nobody will believe when you tell them about it.
