17th July 2019 Sarah Chumacero 89 views. 0 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
You will have heard of precognition which is otherwise known as 'future sight'. Did you know there is also a reverse version called retrocognition? Can a person psychically know a past event, or it is just a form of memory phenomenon? Is it a form of déjà vu? Is it linked with psychometry? Here is all you need to know about retrocognition.

Real life gets in the way!
7th July 2019 Sarah Chumacero 180 views. 1 comments. General.
As much as want to 'live and breathe' the paranormal, realistically, that isn't possible. There will be times when real life gets in the way! Social media paints a fake picture sometimes and people may feel alone or isolated and maybe even feel like they don't or can't do enough, but I promise you, this happens to all of us at some point!

Pareidolia/matrixing is really just our brains trying to be smart
2nd July 2019 Sarah Chumacero 2224 views. 2 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Pareidolia, otherwise known as matrixing is a type of apophenia - a psychological phenomenon where your brain tries to make sense of data. It is why you will see a face in the clouds. Here are some examples from my own travels in the paranormal field and how they were 'debunked' as well as looking at how apophenia in some ways applies to facial recognition technology (such as snapchat) that are commonly mistaken as 'ghosts'.

28th June 2019 Sarah Chumacero 336 views. 1 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General, Paranormal Theories.

A lot of the time, nothing happens during an investigation
23rd June 2019 Sarah Chumacero 527 views. 1 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
Reality television tells us that as soon as we enter a building, we are in for a night of 'What was that?' and surprises at every corner. In real life, a paranormal investigation is very different, in fact, a lot of the time nothing happens at all!

The Barnum Effect and paranormal investigating
12th June 2019 Sarah Chumacero 291 views. 1 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
The Barnum effect is a phenomena where people interpret a generalised phrase or general information as being specific to them. This can not only apply to a psychic reading, but often occurs during paranormal investigations as well. People often unknowingly connect dots to make something relevant to them when in reality, it isn't.

Charles Bonnet Syndrome
9th June 2019 Sarah Chumacero 583 views. 0 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General, Paranormal Theories.
There is a medical condition known as Charles Bonnet Syndrome where people who are losing their sight start seeing ghosts, aliens and other strange beings. While a person is mentally sound, this condition causes them to hallucinate and see things that are not really there. Some believe this impairment allows a person a glimpse into a dimension we cannot see. Is it all just a hallucination?

Can living people communicate through dreams?
4th June 2019 Sarah Chumacero 578 views. 3 comments. General, Paranormal Theories.
Recently I looked at the claims of spirits visiting us during our dreams. Across my research, I found accounts of people claiming they shared a dream with a living person, so I wanted to explore this concept further. Does mutual dreaming exist? What is Descartes' dream argument?

Does Twin telepathy exist? While it has not been scientifically proven, there is no denying that twins share a very special connection. What about twins that have been separated? One of the most intriguing cases is that of the Jim twins - separated at birth but went on to lead strikingly identical lives

Is there a connection between different kinds of paranormal phenomena?
31st May 2019 Sarah Chumacero 513 views. 1 comments. General, Paranormal Theories.
We know that the paranormal field covers more than just 'ghosts'. From cryptozoology through to ufology, there is a vast unknown world out there. While usually a person tends to focus on the one kind of phenomena, it is important that people from all areas of the field work together as it can help us gain new perspectives. What if there is connection between them all that we are missing? From the superspectrum through to frequency and even anomalistic psychology, let's look at some different connections between all the fields.

20th May 2019 Sarah Chumacero 221 views. 0 comments. General, Tales of Black Rock House.
When you visit a location, a lot of people don't pay attention to the Hallway area as to some it is just a way of getting from one room to another.  If you do happen to visit Black Rock House, I would tell you to take special notice of the Hallway, because you might be missing out!
