    Speakin’ of Ghosts

    It’s late and just as you’re drifting off to sleep, you hear something.  What was it?  There’s no one else at home.  The cat’s asleep at the end of the bed.  “It must have been the wind,” you tell yourself.  It always makes you feel better to believe it’s just the wind.  Until you feel that cool breeze float across your bed and realize there is no wind… People have been telling ghost stories since the beginning of time – the Greeks and Romans had ghost stories, and even the Bible mentions one in the story of Samuel and the Witch of Endor.  The oldest documented ghost story in Oklahoma…

    Speakin’ of Ghosts…

    There is quite a fascination with the paranormal field lately and I think it’s safe to say there are more and more investigative teams appearing literally every day.  The field is saturated with them.  Television and the internet have made this field incredibly accessible, which are both a great and major pain at the same time. Television and the glamorization of ghost hunting has made it more mainstream and acceptable among the general public which is nice, but the internet has made it possible for any Tom, Chris, or Harry to start up a team whether they have any knowledge of the paranormal or not.  I don’t begrudge anyone wanting…

    So, you want to be a ghost hunter? The paranormal has become quite a hot topic over the past few years and a lot of that is because of television.  There are mixed feelings about the effect of television on the paranormal field.  On one hand, it has made it much more mainstream and acceptable.  People are much more open to talking about their ghostly encounters these days and tourism is booming when it comes to locations with haunted history. On the other hand, it has everyone thinking they can run out and buy some gear and hunt ghosts.  What happens then is that people become reckless, often times scaring…

    Paranormal Investigations

    When I first started investigating, I was dead set (no pun intended) on gathering “scientific evidence” that ghosts exist.  I had gadgets and I had a tool belt to carry my gadgets in.  All those gadgets do is make you appear to be technologically hip – until your EMF meter goes off and the homeowner asks you why and you say, “Um… I’m not sure.”  Cover blown – your hip status just went down the toilet, folks. There are simply too many factors that come into play when you get gadgets involved.  Unless you are a photographer by trade, you likely don’t know all the intricacies of your camera and…
