Lately it seems everyone I speak to about a new case believes they have some negative entity or demon haunting them. Most forget that about 80% of paranormal claims have a perfectly logical and natural cause. Of the remaining 20% of claims that are paranormal less than 1% are truly in human or demonic in nature. This article is for after those cases that truly are paranormal in nature and have no natural explanation. The most common cause I have run across for this idea that there is a demon in the house is simply a misinterpretation of a spirits attempts to communicate. There are some key factors to look for during a paranormal investigation that indicate a negative or demonic entity which we will discuss later...

I had a personal experience with this a few years ago when I was master of ceremonies at a conference, and was asked to introduce some of the best-known serious researchers in the field of Ufology. I was also asked to introduce the other types mentioned above, and a “tin foil hat contest.” Since then I have refused to attend or be part of such conferences. Personally I have nothing against them, but feel UFO research is of such importance that it should not be combined with many that refer to themselves as paranormal.

THE OLD FARMHOUSE WAS quickly engulfed in furious flames and responders were doing all they could to guard their eyes from the bright glare that illuminated in the blackness of the 3 a.m. sky, and scalding heat, but there was little to nothing that anyone could have done to stop the fire from destroying the simple structure. However, firefighters were successful in preventing the flames from extending to the various outbuildings and, even more importantly, the surrounding neighborhood. Reports were coming in by people from across the entire county of the blaze in the sky.

What we are creating is what we call the Central Paranormal Intelligence Network or C.P.I.N for short. Now in order for this to work all we need is the support of as many teams, writers, bloggers, or paranormal enthusiasts; and you can help create the largest Paranormal Unity Team. Haunted North America has created a Representative application form for teams to fill out and you can help be a major influence on this transition to an easier connection to all paranormal! What does becoming a Haunted North America representative mean? We at HNAI do better when the fans and collaborators promote their own work.

The tale has become legend in the Germanton Community, and has various ghostly legends associated with it. A new book entitled The Meaning Of Our Tears , as well as a wonderful documentary called A Christmas Family Tragedy were released in December, 2006, around the 77th Anniversary of the event.

A Paranormal Reader is a new book by Gail Godfrey which documents numerous paranormal encounters that she, her family, and others have relayed over the years, all of which leave one guessing as to the truth behind the claims, and each leaving you wanting to read the next. Filled with some impressive intellectual snippets, the book also provides a bit of education to enthusiasts of the spirit world--on quite a few occasions, I found myself reading about legal cases I was not familiar with, and explanations behind spiritual communication that I had not heard before, and trust me, I’ve heard a lot.

When you think of hotels, you mostly think of suites, a hotel breakfast, maybe even an indoor pool. Not necessarily, when it comes to the Mount Washington Hotel at least. This hotel, which was designed by architect Charles Alling Gifford, was designed to look like a “Spanish Renaissance Revival”, has some guests that do check out, but SOME have decided to make this five story hotel their eternal home.

Paranormal investigators, mediums, and researchers into the field of survival of consciousness are occupying a liminal space by virtue not only of their object of study, but of the interplay between investigator and the other worlds they enter at will. One must occupy these liminal spaces in order to understand them; in other words, the subject of your research turns you into an object of it, as well.

UFOs, are an interesting subject, but did you ever hear about UFC's? At this point I'm going to take a little beginners license and steal a phrase from research papers done by a gentleman by the name of Trevor James Constable. He is a scientist credited with the photography of CRITTERS, as he named them and certainly produced enough written material to make it worth your time reading. He explored an area 50 years ago that I certainly would not have been interested in at that time but in view of present-day phenomenons I believe anyone would be interested now. I believe these are the first quality, pix to be published, and they come with a long story . I hope there is going to be enough interest to satisfy my curiosity at least. I have finally located a person who is an actual eye-witness to what I merely obtained game-cam digital pix of. It is my hope that others who have seen critters, at least, or better yet have clear pictures will come forth and share.

The Paranormal Equation is a new book by James D. Stein, attempting to provide a new scientific perspective on what many would consider to be inexplicable, supernatural phenomena. He begins by defining what he means by supernatural using the Merriam Webster dictionary of the term: “Of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe; especially: of or relating to God or a god, demigod, spirit, or devil.” Science, however, does not confine “observable” to “visible”--if we were stuck with constricting ourselves to the visible, then electrons, bacteria, radio, and x-rays would be considered supernatural phenomena, so it is not accurate enough. The second part of the definition of the supernatural the author visits is: “departing from what is usual or normal especially so as to appear to transcend the laws of nature,” and this, he states, is something that science can study, as transcendent laws have been hinted at by logical proofs provided by mathematicians over the past century--in p

I've been hearing a lot about "Paranormal Unity" lately and even though I don't have the complete grasp of what it means as a whole, I'm going to make a guess: My guess would be that it means that no matter what we do, no matter how much evidence we have, no matter how many millions of stories are out there, we just can't win them all. And no matter what, there's going to be those who simply put their fingers into their ears, shut their eyes, and not listen. See no evil, hear no evil. There are those who just don't want to listen and it's almost like nails on a chalkboard for them to even take a moment and rationalize the possibility of their being life after death. And where does the paranormal unity talk come from? We got to stick together.

You want to try to approach them like they are one of us, because if you go in there like some people, "How'd you die? Were you murdered?" These are sensitive questions that you should not start out with. You should try to form a bond with the spirit. Try to talk to them like they are one of you. Start off with introducing yourself and maybe asking what the spirits name is.

Cognitive processes are not wholly confined ‘in the head.’ When you depend on an external item to aid with cognition, such as using a calculator or writing directions down on a piece of paper, the depency on the external element creates a coupled system, one external to you and one internal to you, which together can be seen as an extension of your consciousness into the environment itself. This coupled system may, in fact, be the reason why houses are haunted. Coupled systems from the past may create ‘hauntings’ where external elements of cognition linger long after the coupled system was severed by the onslaught of death. It is thus up to the paranormal investigator, not to find blips and beeps on a recording device without context, but to uncover these external cognitions still at work and learn more about the context, almost as if they were archaeologists discovering bones--left over pieces of people’s active beliefs and culture--in a long forgotten tomb.

I am an archaeologist. I re-define the past through the material remains of past presence that I unearth through excavation. The past becomes present in this archaeological process. But what happens when that past continues to percolate “live” (and is not a residual material remains) in the present? As an archaeologist, I know that the past is not “dead”. I uncover its remains through excavation and reconstruction. But what happens when that past manifests (and interacts) because of some field practice that I have just performed?

Ghost Culture: Theories, Context, and Scientific Practice, is a book written by John G. Sabol Jr, concerning the scientific gathering of ghost data and how to better improve and catalog research from fellow investigators. Rather than relying solely on instruments from our culture to record ghosts as outside intruders, investigators should focus on hauntings as the manifestation of a drama (rituals and rites of passage) in time peopled by ghosts which must be entered in order to connect.

Speaking to the dead with radios obviously is the name of my book, but what actually does that mean in layman terms. Do I have a radio that I turn on to have a two way conversation with the dead, for example, like using a CB Radio? Well no, not exactly. The radio is just a just a tool used in the process to help record paranormal messages or Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP).

“Kirlian Photography” is a technique invented by Russian Engineering Professor Semyon Kirlian in the year 1939, to show electrical coronal discharges. After having visited a hospital in Krasnodar, he noticed sparks project from a high frequency generator as its electrodes came close to a patient’s body, much like when a gas is charged with electrical activity. In a simple experiment, assisted by his wife, Valentina, he set up two metal plates (acting as electrodes) and placed a photographic film on one of them. Kirlian placed his hand between the two plates, and switched on a high frequency current, resulting in a photograph on the film, once developed, that showed Dr. Kirlian’s hand surrounded by an “aura” of light.

From desolate cottages choked with weeds, to towering Victorian Gothic edifices, to musty tunnels snaking under the lawn, the abandoned sanitariums, reformatories, and asylums of the past practically invite fantastic stories. When many of these old institutions were shut down or decommissioned in the 1980s, they were overtaken by former patients and inmates, amateur photographers, and teenagers looking for a thrill. These urban explorers brought back stories of strange sounds, moving shadows, and messages carved in the walls. Mysterious Heartland has found that many former asylums in the Heartland are believed to be infested with ghosts, but which are the most haunted of them all?

When looking at what makes a good ghost story, the elements that are looked for are a tragic back story, a creepy location, and sometimes a tantalizing mystery. A lot of well-known ghost stories end up becoming more myth than fact, and the true tragedy of their haunting takes a back burner to the spirit sightings themselves.
