Things don't happen overnight
11th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 415 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.

6th March 2019 Sarah Chumacero 388 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?

We need to stop over embellishing
22nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 204 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.

Where do our beliefs lie?
16th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 392 views. 2 comments. General.
I recently conducted an online survey to get a gauge on what people believed in and what they didn't when it comes to the vast field of the paranormal. Here are the results

Video VS Still Photography
16th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 369 views. 0 comments. Photography, 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.

Lucid Dreaming

What is Lucid Dreaming? This isn't a how to guide, more of an explanation of it's concept, studies and it's relation to consciousness.

Experimenter Enthusiasm
7th February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 312 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Investigation.
Why is it that people report when using a new technique, piece of equipment or conducting a new experiment is that it seems to work initially and results later drop off. Is it a case of experimenter enthusiasm?

Are your experiences investigating the paranormal different as your research path changes?
2nd February 2019 Sarah Chumacero 355 views. 2 comments. General.
I am often asked by people, do you believe in ghosts? For me that is actually a really complicated question and the answer is not straight forward. It then led me to being asked the thought provoking question last week if the path my research has taken me down has 'ruined' my paranormal investigation experience. It has changed, but it is most definitely not 'ruined'.

Whether it is mainstream media like TV or radio or paranormal media such as podcasts and blogs, you will always see different teams and investigators in the media. From playing the ghostbusters theme in the background, to having a laugh or being able to share your thoughts, media opportunities are a mixed bag.

The Scientific Method
22nd January 2019 Sarah Chumacero 415 views. 2 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General, Paranormal Investigation.
A lot of investigators (myself in the past included) often advertise that we take a scientific approach to paranormal investigation, usually because we use equipment. When you compare this to the actual scientific method, are we really being that scientific just because we have a gadget? What is the scientific method and how can we apply it to paranormal investigating?

Paranormal investigating is not glamourous
21st January 2019 Sarah Chumacero 1071 views. 4 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
While it may look like a fun and exciting thing to do on TV, the reality of paranormal investigation is very different. It is hard work and far from glamourous

The old school tricks of deception - Rapping
18th January 2019 Sarah Chumacero 715 views. 1 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General, Paranormal Investigation.
During the spiritualist era starting in the mid 1800's, there was a new interest in people trying to make contact with their loved ones through seance. Sadly, a lot of the mediums performing these seances were frauds and used some very creative tricks of deception to convince their audience that they were the real deal. Let's explore some of the techniques that were used to recreate rapping and how we can be mindful during modern day paranormal investigating.
