Understanding the basics of EXIF Data for reviewing paranormal photos
12th January 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1314 views. 1 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Investigation.
When reviewing photos, we are always telling people to look at the EXIF data because it is a valuable tool to understanding the conditions in which a photo was taken. 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'.

When something just doesn't seem right
8th January 2018 Sarah Chumacero 727 views. 0 comments. General.
We are often contacted for advice and a lot of investigators deal with private cases to help those in need. We are always willing to help at different levels, but sometimes things just don't feel right. What are some of the common scenarios and what do you do about it?

Mulberry Hill - The origin story of Picnic at Hanging Rock
19th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 3068 views. 1 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
I recently visited and investigated the house that used to belong to Lady Joan Lindsay, the author behind the famous novel ' Picnic at Hanging Rock'. What makes this story even more fascinating was the claim that Linsday received visions in her dreams over a period of 2 weeks which led to the story of Picnic at Hanging Rock. It has been long debated because of this, could this fiction really be a true story?

Can an object become haunted?
6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 3195 views. 2 comments. General.
Can objects really become haunted? How does it work and how does one even establish if an object is haunted? I look at the general theories amongst the paranormal field on what can possibly cause an object to become haunted. Is it even possible? How can you tell?

Why is the paranormal referred to as pseudoscience
6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 728 views. 0 comments. General.
As investigators we often go around saying, "we take a scientific approach to investigating". Apparently we shouldn't be using this term because the paranormal is actually a pseudoscience. Here is why. Does it really matter? Depends on you and who you are trying to convince.

Let's address the demon in the room
6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 2504 views. 5 comments. General.
People are very quick these days to label any sort of haunting where someone may feel uneasy as demonic. Why is there a trend to label everything demonic and what is considered to be a true demonic haunting?

Regardless of your views, you must be respectful!
30th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 548 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
We all have different opinions, but respect is key. If you go into a location being disrespectful to their wishes, it can cause damage to the field because they might just close the doors to everyone else.

Its is a tradition we hear more and more of as it is starting to become more prominent in all countries all over the world. Sugar skulls are very much in fashion but what is their significance?

Video ITC
20th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 4527 views. 0 comments. General, Famous Paranormal Cases.
ITC is all the rage these days predominately with audio in the form of ghost boxes. Way back in 1985, Klaus Schreiber developed video ITC which people still today are trying to improve and experiment with. So what is all about? Is it spirits we are looking at or is it pareidolia?

We develop and evolve - it is all a part of our journey
20th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 505 views. 0 comments. General.
I am not the same person I was all those years ago when I started, but it is all an important part of the journey. You may think differently to the past and may even think 'What the hell was I thinking?' but we have all been there and it is all about growth that comes with experience.
