Suggestive Memory
4th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 325 views. 1 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
While we love investigating with our friends and with groups of people, can we be too influenced by our peers? Can a person 'implant' a memory into someone else? How does this affect how we recall our investigations?

The Stone Tape Theory
2nd April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 2383 views. 2 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, Paranormal Investigation, General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
What is the stone tape theory and what is it all about? Where did it come from and is there any merit to the claims?

Bats and Frequency
31st March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 256 views. 0 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
Bats use echolocation to communicate and navigate with one another. As the sound is ultrasonic, it is not something we hear with our own ears. If you are doing an investigation outside, could a digital recorder pick up these ultrasonic sounds which are then confused with something paranormal?

Thoughtography

Can a person 'burn' an image from their thoughts onto film? How is it different to psychic or spirit photography? Is it all a hoax?

Unperceived existence and the paranormal
26th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 297 views. 2 comments. Supernatural Synchronicity, General.
If a tree falls in the forest, and there’s nobody around to hear, does it make a sound? Is the moon there when nobody looks? In the same vein, is paranormal phenomena happening when there is no one there to observe it? Is paranormal phenomena only occurring because we are there?

The doorway effect
24th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 556 views. 1 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Do you ever walk into the room with an intention and then suddenly as you enter the room you have completely forgotten why you walked in the room to begin with? This can fall under a memory phenomena called 'The Doorway Effect'. The main trigger - walking through a doorway. So what does this mean for how we recall information during our paranormal investigations?

Water and the Paranormal
22nd March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 772 views. 1 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
Do you believe that water acts as a conduit for paranormal phenomena? Water has connections with the paranormal in many ways. Let's look at some of the theories and ways in which water is associated with the paranormal and mythology.

Harry Houdini and the record breaking Australian first flight!
18th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 296 views. 0 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
In the early hours of the morning on March 18th 1910, famed magician and paranormal debunker Harry Houdini made the first controlled, powered flight in an aircraft for the first time in Australia.

Is time the key?
13th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 426 views. 3 comments. General, Supernatural Synchronicity.
Time seems to be one of the common denominators in a lot of different theories related to the paranormal. As out there as some theories may seem to some, many are driven by the concept and our perception of space and time. Could time and what is known as the 4th dimension be the key to understanding paranormal phenomena?

Things don't happen overnight
11th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 352 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
In a lot of ways, the paranormal field is very much a game of waiting and a game of patience.  On more than one occasion, your patience will be tested.  If you do not have a passion for the things that you do in this field, that patience will wear very thin.

The real 'spirit' in the room
10th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 335 views. 0 comments. General.
We walk around in the dark looking for a 'spirit'. What we may miss however is that there is some amazing 'human spirit' right here in front of us in the paranormal field.

Schrödinger's Cat, many worlds and the paranormal
6th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 325 views. 0 comments. General.
How can a hypothetical cat in a box make us look at the paranormal differently? Could the many worlds theory be a clue behind what is behind what we perceive as paranormal activity?

The strange disappearance of Frederick Valentich
1st March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 1346 views. 0 comments. Conspiracy Theories, General, Famous Paranormal Cases.
It remains one of the more puzzling events in Australian aviation. On October 21st 1978, at 6:19pm in the evening, pilot Fredrick Valentich took off from Moorobbin airport in Victoria and seemingly disappeared into thin air, but not before leaving an eerie radio transmission.

What exactly are we looking for?
27th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 389 views. 1 comments. General, Supernatural Synchronicity.
The way each investigator interprets information will depend on their beliefs, who they investigate with and how they learnt to investigate. We tend to overcomplicate things when we should be trying to keep it simple.

The ideomotor phenomena
24th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 527 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Equipment.
When using items such as a ouija board, automatic writing, dowsing rods and pendulums, you need to be aware of what is called the ideomotor phenomena.

Dance till you die!
22nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 267 views. 0 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
In 1518, there was an actual documented account of what was named 'The dancing plague'. People gathered on a street and danced for up to a month until they died.

We need to stop over embellishing
22nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 175 views. 0 comments. General.
Often when we are putting something on social media, we have to use carefully selected wording to make it interesting to the reader. When it comes to the Paranormal, it is easy to throw around terms such as 'shocking evidence'. If your content is good, you don't need to shortchange yourself with these embellished headlines. Let your work speak for itself.

Sleep paralysis
17th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 776 views. 2 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
What is sleep paralysis and what could potentially be causing these episodes? Is it paranormal or is it our brain? How is it different to a Night Terror?

Video VS Still Photography
16th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 329 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation, Paranormal Equipment.
On a paranormal investigation, if you had to choose between a video camera or a still camera such as a digital camera, which would you choose? A video camera is actually your most important piece of equipment, and I am going to tell you why.
