25th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 340 views. 0 comments. Supernatural Synchronicity, General.

17th April 2019 Sarah Chumacero 997 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.

Bats and Frequency
31st March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 494 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?

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? Is it possible to transmit our thoughts?

Things don't happen overnight
11th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 528 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.
