The Autokinetic Effect
26th July 2019 Sarah Chumacero 317 views. 1 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
We know the brain loves a good optical illusion. When our brain and eyes work together to interpret what we see, often it tricks us into thinking things are moving around. The autokinetic effect can make stationary objects seem as if they are moving in the dark. Some UFO sightings could be attributed to this phenomena. So let's look at the autokinetic effect in more detail.

The pineal gland and psychical abilities
23rd July 2019 Sarah Chumacero 398 views. 1 comments. General, Paranormal Theories.
Spiritually, the pineal gland is considered to be the 'third eye'. Does this and its impact on female hormones have a connection to the theory that females are more sensitive to the paranormal? What is its connection to DMT otherwise known as the 'spirit hormone'? Do female hormones play a part in psychical ability?

You will have heard of precognition which is otherwise known as 'future sight'. Did you know there is also a reverse version called retrocognition?

Real life gets in the way!
7th July 2019 Sarah Chumacero 300 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 2671 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'.

A lot of the time, nothing happens during an investigation
23rd June 2019 Sarah Chumacero 1055 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!

4th June 2019 Sarah Chumacero 728 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?

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 621 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 313 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!
