6th November 2017 Sarah Chumacero 3407 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 770 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.

Video ITC
20th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 4602 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?

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.

A personal experience is that just that ..... It's personal
7th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 851 views. 2 comments. General.
We all started somewhere and usually it has stemmed from some sort of personal experience. While it is not something can be used as evidence, it is an important part of being an investigator because it reminds us why we are out there seeking these answers.

4th October 2017 Sarah Chumacero 1462 views. 0 comments. General.
