Using Spirit Intuition as a Guide When Ghost Hunting
How our senses and thoughts help detect the presence of spirits...
In the day of digital gadgets, many ghost hunters wrongly choose to disregard what they feel, opting for a more scientific approach. The problem with doing this is that the ghost investigation equipment we have to use will not prove the existence of ghosts. We must learn to rely on different sources that help us come to a conclusion about a haunting. One of the best tools we have at our disposal is our own inner guidance or what we may call our spirit intuitiveness.
Ghost Hunting: The Use of Thoughts and Sense
Do not write off thoughts that you may consider as crazy or even as your own. Consider all thoughts that "pop" into your head and their source. Do not walk in fear. Begin learning to be aware of spirit through meditation or prayer. One who is aware of spirit will sense when spirits are present. We can learn to "feel" the presence of spirit physically (think "goose bumps"), sometimes. Other times, spirits may give us a "rushing feeling" within our deepest being. Perhaps, you may simply "know" a ghost or spirit is present. Everyone is different and how we sense differs, too.
Energy is spirit, and we are spirit - part of the whole energy that comprises all that exists. Therefore, we can feel different parts of the whole; we can detect others who are a part of the universe with us. You are the most important instrument you can use to sense the paranormal. Use your spiritual intuition.
Spirit may be "sensed" at any time or any place. It does not have to be at night; but you do have to have a clear and open mind. If you are preoccupied, angry or depressed, you will struggle to sense anything at all. Also, spirit can sense spirit, too - you. So, the wrong frame of mind may deter spiritual activity. Remember, like minds attract like minds. If you are a being of light, meaning positive, happy, loving, etc., you will attract beings of similar mind. If you are walking in darkness, then darkened minds will be attracted. Darkness does not like or understand light. Some ghosts have ill intentions and walk in darkness. Their mind has succumbed to dark thoughts - negativity.
Follow your heart (or your gut) and investigate areas where you are drawn. What places seem to come to mind or interest you? What opportunity has come to you for searching - ghost hunting? Go there. And, always be willing to learn and grow spiritually through your spiritual experiences. Seek them and the journey will find you. Do not be afraid to speak out and ask permission to photograph the spirit realm. Announce you come in peace.
Involve others in your spiritual journey. Ghost hunting should not be done alone. Research the area you wish to investigate. What is the history or legend of the place? Have someone in your group take notes of all that happens. They can be sort of a "ghost secretary." Record feelings, happenings and observations. Share thoughts and look for common threads in those thoughts. Are you being spoken to? Be respectful and do not fear questioning that which your eyes do not physically see. "What am I here for? What am I to see and learn?"
Take photos, video and voice recordings, if you like, and try to capture evidence of the paranormal. Seek to eliminate any other source of explanation for your results. For example, if you choose to run a voice recorder, make sure no one talks or even whispers during the investigation. When taking pictures with a camera, remember that dust will produce "orbs" and other effects that appear supernatural. The presence of car headlights, rain, mirrors, glass and even camera straps (which should be removed while photographing) can produce "false ghost images." We have even seen a cloud of bees near a beehive appear as a "mist" or "ectoplasm" in the photograph. Do not wear perfumes, fragrances or colognes as some have noticed different scents and smells in the air during supernatural activity (such as cigar smoke or a person's unique fragrance).
As a special reminder, it is best that your investigations are alcohol and drug free for credible evidence. When leaving, it may be a good idea to speak blessing and tell all that is there to remain behind and not follow you home. Many have reported having a ghost, or two, follow them home after an investigation, occasionally. Be sure and keep that in mind if you have children at home!
