The ghost frequency
23rd September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1896 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Investigation.
We know that infrasound can cause a person to believe that they are experiencing something paranormal. There is however one particular frequency that invokes these feelings and it really hits the mark. It is referred to as 'The Ghost Frequency'

Disembodied voices
21st September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 2312 views. 3 comments. Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, General.
There are a lot of fancy terms to describe certain paranormal experiences. One of those is a 'disembodied voice'. What exactly is it? Is it different to EVP? What are some explanations for this phenomena? I look at it from a few different angles to get you up to speed.

Does the paranormal field help salvage our history?
17th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 714 views. 2 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
History is history. It happened and we can't change it. There seems to be a tendency to demolish in the hopes we will forget, but it is important the legacy lives on and that we don't forget. In some cases, paranormal investigations are keeping old venues open saving them demolition by bringing in much needed cash ..... but for how long?

The book of the dead
17th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 883 views. 2 comments. General.
Ancient Egypt is a fascinating subject.  Equally fascinating was the belief that Ancient Egyptians had for the afterlife.  You only have to look at how a person was ‘prepared’ after they died to realise they had a tremendous respect for the soul and most definitely believed in some sort of afterlife.   They even had a book called the book of the dead which would help the soul navigate the afterlife to reach a place of eternal bliss with their loved ones.

Effectiveness of baseline readings
16th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 632 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know, Paranormal Investigation, Paranormal Equipment.
While we do prep work and baseline readings before an investigation, does doing this during the day and investigating at night or even on a different day effect these results? How should we work with our baselines?

This week I chat to a fellow Aussie investigator Cat Ward. She has been in the paranormal field for 18 years and always willing to have a chat and lend advice to her fellow investigators. She has some really interesting thoughts too!

Fortune Telling from the 1970's
10th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 871 views. 0 comments. General.
When my Nan passed away, I was given a deck of cards she used to read. She used a typewriter and stuck the meaning to each card. They are easily over 50+ years old as well as cuttings from a New Idea article on fortune telling from the 1970's. Due to overwhelming demand from my followers, I have written each card meaning and included some photos of the cuttings. Take a journey back to the 1970's! If anything, the ads are a bit of a laugh.

Females and the paranormal
7th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 646 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Investigation.
In a typically male led industry, why is it most of the people attending tours, investigations and demonstrating abilities are female?

Random word generator VS the Ovilus
4th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 724 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Equipment, Paranormal Investigation.
The Ovilus is a controversial and popular tool to investigate the paranormal. I have previously looked at the odds of a relevant word appearing, but how does it stack up against a random word generator? Here is an experiment you can try using a random word generator to compare against your Ovilus results and stack up just how often do random words come up?

Hollywood 'horror' stunts to promote movies
4th September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 693 views. 0 comments. General.
In our modern world, it is pretty hard to shock people. We have become so desensitised that the content in some movies is just down right disturbing. Movie companies are always looking for ways to get you to see a movie and will often promote it as the 'Scariest movie ever'. This is not a new practise. It has been done for decades. Let's look at some of the most popular examples of 'horror movie hype'.

Does the way you investigate help you toward the answers you are looking for?
1st September 2018 Sarah Chumacero 388 views. 0 comments. General.
I recently looked at myself and my research compared to how I investigate. Do I investigate in a way that aids my research to help me find these answers I am looking for? Am I asking the same questions week in and week out when I should be looking at things differently?

Jail or Gaol .... which is one is it?
26th August 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1001 views. 0 comments. General.
Australians spell old prisons as Gaol. Modern prisons here in Australia are referred to now as Jail. Americans have always spelt it as Jail, now we do too, yet we spelt it as Gaol up until the 1990's. Confused? Me too.

Ethics, grief and the paranormal.
21st August 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1031 views. 0 comments. General, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
Just because we can, should we? In an unregulated industry, there are certain things we need to stay away from. While it can be a bit of fun for some, there are people that are grieving or protective of family members who have passed away that we need to be considerate of. How soon is too soon?

Why we should avoid recording EVP sessions in MP3 format
15th August 2018 Sarah Chumacero 1045 views. 0 comments. General, Paranormal Equipment, Stuff paranormal investigators need to know.
EVP is one of the staples of paranormal investigating. If you don't have any equipment, you are still able to record a session using a digital recorder or a mobile phone. While it is convenient, it may not be useful as we think it is if the audio is compressed into MP3 format.

In this instalment we head into the Dining Room and ask the question, 'what is up with that mirror?'

Death masks and the study of phrenology
2nd August 2018 Sarah Chumacero 999 views. 0 comments. General.
When roaming the halls of what was once a gaol, it is not uncommon for there to be displays and stories of former inmates.  What is particularly un nerving, is when they have on display a death mask.  The Old Melbourne Gaol in Victoria is full of them.  So what is a death mask and why would you cast a mask of someone who was executed? What has it got to do with phrenology?
