Why hasn't the paranormal field advanced as technology has evolved?
7th March 2018 Sarah Chumacero 923 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
We certainly live in a technological age. Paranormal investigation in the modern day is overcome with different gadgets reading all sorts of things that we assume can help us detect the presence of a spirit. So why is it then paranormal researchers are turning back to the old school methodology? Why haven't we made any ground breaking discoveries along with the advancement of equipment? Perhaps it is because modern day investigators aren't looking for the same things researchers once were and are more motivated by an experience than validation?

Politeness VS Provocation
3rd March 2018 Sarah Chumacero 643 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
To provoke or not to provoke. It can become a really heated topic amongst investigators.

While this is true, how do you then deal with the negative nasties that weren't so nice in life either. It's all about picking your moments.

19th February 2018 Sarah Chumacero 991 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Equipment.

An open mind works both ways
17th February 2018 Sarah Chumacero 609 views. 0 comments. General.
An open mind works both ways. We need to be open to the fact that not everything is paranormal, but at the same time acknowledge that sometimes there are things we can't explain. Especially if we are participating in group discussions on social media.

Looks like the Earth is round after all
8th February 2018 Sarah Chumacero 381 views. 0 comments. General.
One would think a car orbiting in space with a mannequin dressed as an astronaut called 'Starman' as a tribute to David Bowie is the stuff a great science fiction parody movie was made of. As ridiculous as it sounds, it actually happened, all the while proving that the Earth is in fact round!

4th February 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1207 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Equipment, Old School Challenge.

Build your own electroscope and do some tests and experiments in the field. Here is all you need to know about electroscopes and some instructions to get you started.

Just because a building is old, doesn't mean it is haunted
1st February 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1058 views. 5 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
As investigators, one could be easily fooled into thinking that the older the building, the more likely it is to be haunted. It couldn't actually be further from the truth.

28th January 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1392 views. 3 comments. General.

21st January 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1262 views. 2 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
Do one of your friends or family ever tell you “I saw your exact double today. They looked just like you!” Have you seen someone's double while out investigating? What is the doppelgänger phenomenon and what are the theories surrounding it?

A cemetery is probably the most unhaunted place you can find
14th January 2018 Sarah Chumacero 474 views. 1 comments. General.
When most people go out on their own to do a paranormal investigation, one of the first places they tend to go is a cemetery. The thing is, there usually isn't much going on and sometimes it is something that should be left alone.

I explain what the EXIF Data is, how to access it and what things you should be looking at when reviewing photos for 'paranormal evidence'.
