I know that I generally use the word 'Cemetery' when it comes to the place we put people to rest. We often however hear the phrase Graveyard and attribute it to the same thing. Apparently they are slightly different. So what is the difference?

Paranormal Politics
2nd November 2018 Sarah Chumacero 536 views. 0 comments. General.
The word politics is defined as : activities aimed at improving someone’s status or increasing power within an organisation. Sound familiar? The paranormal field is not immune and we need to stop before we lose some great minds from the field.

The Hutchinson Effect
1st November 2018 Sarah Chumacero 834 views. 1 comments. General, Famous Paranormal Cases.
In the 1970’s a self proclaimed ‘Tesla expert’ claimed to discover an amazing phenomena labelled The Hutchinson Effect. What is it about and was it a hoax? If we flip things for a moment, could this be a possibility when we look at poltergeist type hauntings?

Anyone in the Australian paranormal scene knows Bill and Mandy from Australian Paranormal Society. They are known all over the world. Mandy does quite a lot of work behind the scenes and often does not highlight the things she does because she doesn't want the spotlight. I think it is time everyone knows just how amazing this lady really is!

We don't know everything, so make sure you really understand what you do know
21st October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 480 views. 2 comments. General.
A lot of people claim they know the alternative explanation to a paranormal but in reality, they sometimes have a misinformed misconception of it. This is where a problem can potentially start because how can we learn from each other if we are learning the wrong thing to begin with?

Beat your fear by empowering yourself with information
17th October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 571 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
Some people go into an investigation absolutely petrified due to misconceptions about the paranormal. By the end of the night they are ready for more because they realise it is nothing like they thought. Kids can be scared witless of things they think go bump in the night. When they learn what is really causing these noises etc, they are not scared anymore, because they are empowered by knowledge. Beat fear with knowledge

The Rabbit Illusion

Researchers have created a visual illusion in order to demonstrate a little brain trick called postdiction.  It has been nicknamed the ‘Rabbit Illusion’. It highlights the brain's tendency to 'fill in the blanks' and makes us perceive things differently to how they actually were.

The answers aren't all on the internet
4th October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 967 views. 1 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
Instead of using the internet as our source of information, should we be out there actually looking for answers? Maybe we also need to get off our smartphones and hand held cameras during an investigation and even put the equipment down, we could be missing something!

The Amityville Horror
3rd October 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1599 views. 2 comments. Famous Paranormal Cases, General.
The case of the Amityville horror is probably one of the most well known paranormal cases in the world. It spawned many books, documentaries and was made into around 17 movies. It was the case that projected famous investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren into the spotlight and has been plagued with controversy and court cases. It has since been said to be a hoax by one of the parties involved, however over 40 years later, it still remains as one of the most well known paranormal cases in the world.

Ultrasonic sound and the paranormal
30th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 889 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
I have recently come across some research from different sources that show how ultrasound (ultrasonic noise) can effect digital recordings and appear to be what some would consider an 'EVP'. On the other hand, can ultrasound aid a paranormal investigation?

Purple Monkey Dishwasher
29th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 2200 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
While you may attribute the phrase Purple Monkey Dishwasher to an episode of the Simpsons, it actually really means you need you to check where you are getting your information. Remember when you would play Chinese Whispers in school and you would end up with 'purple monkey dishwasher' type phrases? When you think of this, one has to wonder how much you can rely on paranormal reports, especially when told through a line of people.
