Walking under ladders, black cats crossing your path and broken mirrors. These are just some of the common superstitions that have seemed to become a part of our normal life. Where did they actual come from and what is their significance? I look at some popular superstitions and their origins.
We need to learn and grow from our mistakes and use the lessons to our advantage. The best way to do this is through experimentation.
Scrying 12th March 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1595 views. 1 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
Scrying is an ancient art of divination. It has also been adapted by paranormal investigators as a technique to make contact with the spirit world. What is the history behind scrying and how do you do it?
The Ganzfeld experiment is a controversial experiment originally used by parapsychologists to test telepathy and clairvoyance. Over the years it has since been adapted by paranormal investigators with the thought that by depriving our senses, we are potentially opening up our minds for a spirit to deliver us some sort of message or have a paranormal experience. The question is, does it work? Depends who you ask.
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?
To provoke or not to provoke. It can become a really heated topic amongst investigators. Just because we don't see them, a lot of people believe that spirits were once people and so should be treated with respect. 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.
What is the Butterfly Effect/Chaos Theory and where did it come from? Does it have a connection with parallel universe? Does paranormal activity have a connection with parallel universes? Just some musings of my own.
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.

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!
We all love old school. It takes away the bells and whistles and gets to the core of what you are looking for. In the 'spirit' of this, I am setting you an 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.
