Wanted - a World Wide Shift to a More Humane Planet

If we don’t have a worldwide shift in consciousness, away from hate, greed, xenophobia, ignorance and judgment, we won’t have a world left to live in; at least not one worth living in.  We need a shift focusing on the true values of the universe and creation – humanity, not corporations – equality, not bigotry and prejudice – building people up, not pulling them down – sharing resources, not greed – social and economic justice, not domination – acceptance, not intolerance…. Love and understanding, not hate… so much more – the dead really are often so much easier than the world created by the living.
As people involved with the paranormal, we should be even more aware of the universal connectedness of each and every one of us, and the value we all bring to the world with our gifts, our struggles, our light and our darkness, and our efforts to overcome the setbacks and traumas of life, and learn to be as whole and complete and mature as human beings as we can be.  It’s a life long journey.
Feel free to share your thoughts.

Do Residential Hauntings Have More Negative Entities Than Other Locations?

I had a conversation last night with a good friend who is a paranormal investigator.  Part of the conversation was the difference she felt doing investigations between homes and other spaces, and why it seemed that the houses had more negative entities than other spaces.  I have a few ideas and would like to hear your thoughts.
It could be that residents with homes that have more positive entities don’t call for investigations as often as those with entities that are more frightening. 
In my experience, as a general rule entities that are of human origin represent only part of the individual’s persona.  They seem to consist of the energy and personality that the individual most exhibited in a specific area.  Negative energy or personality traits seem to be deeper and longer lasting than moments of more positive emotions.  Perhaps in homes, even ones with lots of happy memories, the negative or darker emotions are more deeply ingrained that the positive ones; whereas so many other venues have more activities that are mostly positive so that there are more positive entities in them.
I also think that entities feed on the energy that the living provides in an environment.  It’s possible that residents calling for investigations more often have a tension or other energy that the negative entities feed on. 
Most places I’ve been have a mix of negative and positive – or darker and lighter entities.  Usually, one form is more dominant than the other.  Many simply have the activities of daily life repeating themselves.  All of them deserve respect and understanding.  We are the intruders in their space!
What are your thoughts on the matter?

Psychic Etiquette

For those of you whom are psychic, how do you handle meeting people who mention a location and you immediately “see” the paranormal entities and activity there?  I have this happen to me all the time, in –person, on the phone, even email.  My natural tendency is to just say what I’m getting if the topic of conversation has to do with the paranormal.  But I’m not so sure this is always appropriate!  So, I work to judge the situation and determine what is appropriate to bring up and when simply not saying anything is the best approach.  What do you do?
For those of you who talk to psychics, what do you desire along these lines?  Do you want us to just blurt out what we get, even if the topic of conversation isn’t about the paranormal, or do you want us to keep quiet?

The Ideal Haunting

What is your vision of the ideal haunted location?  As an investigator, what would intrigue you the most and draw you to a spot.  If you’re a psychic, what attracts you to the work?
I find the locations with entities that want to share their personal stories to be the most fascinating and personally fulfilling.  I value the trust the place in me in those occasions.

What’s the Place of Drama in the Paranormal World?

I’ve been very fortunate.  I got back involved in the paranormal world through, a friend’s international web community that has a focus on being respectful drama free.  Through this site I have become good friends with many people and teams from all over the world, all with the same respect for one another, and open-mindedness.  These teams operate well together, have great communications, and even when things get rough, there isn’t any drama, there’s respect and understanding. 

This being said, I have noticed that there are some teams who seem to attract and dwell on drama.  These teams often seem to have a different feel to their internal and external interactions, often resulting in hurt feelings and misunderstandings.

What are your thoughts on the place of  DRAMA in the paranormal community and why do you think it’s there in some groups and not others? Do you think this drama within or between teams affects the entities we may encounter in our investigations?

Psychics and Paranormal Investigations

As a psychic, I might have a slightly biased opinion of the place of psychics in paranormal investigations.  My thought is that the psychic is just as valuable as the hard evidence.  A good psychic can add depth and dimension to the investigation and can open fields of exploration that could not happen when instruments alone are used or valued.  While it’s true that psychic input on it’s own is not hard evidence, when it is linked to historic or photographic documentation that the psychic didn’t have knowledge of, or if there are independent experiences over time that support the psychic impression, then those impressions can be taken as accurate and do have weight in the investigation. 

The psychic can add the personal and the art to the investigation, bringing in the personality of the entities, and the thoughts, emotions and lives of those involved.  In my opinion, a good, well rounded investigation consists of both scientific and psychic documentation and techniques.

Let me know your thoughts!

What do you think about house cleansing or clearings?

I find the topic one of diverse and often strong opinions.  In my own experience, most of the entities we find are either from other dimensions or are forms of energy, not trapped souls.  I also find that the vast majority of the time, people and paranormal entities can co-exist peacefully and well.  There are exceptions of course. 

Then comes the question of do the clearings/blessings work?  I have experienced a small number.  One was done by well intentioned people from a non-denominational Christian background.  Though the people involved with the clearing were saying it worked, I saw the entities laughing and mocking them.  And the activity continued, and got worse. 

I also know of cases where the entities were sent away, briefly, but came back with friends.  If the site isn’t also sealed against return, a cleansing can do far more harm than good.  The vacuum left is filled, often by entities that are nastier than the ones originally there, or else the old ones return with friends!

I’ve been to one cleansing that I could feel and see worked.  It was last weekend.  Native American traditions were at least part of the process, and the right plants were burned and ceremonies used to seal the property.  That doesn’t mean the residents can’t open the door again.  That’s always possible.

To me, cleansings are something that should only be done by expert with strong experience and knowledge in both removing what’s there, and keeping anything from returning!  What are your thoughts?

Increase in Paranormal Activity

I’m hearing from a few people that paranormal activity is increasing in their areas.  I’m especially hearing this from locations that are somewhat arid and have long organized crime histories.  These are also areas that were homesteaded.  Have you heard of anything unusual going on in the paranormal world?

The Nature of Ghosts!

What do you believe ghosts to be?  Trapped souls, psychic energy, a field of some sort?  This is a question I’ve been pondering for some time.  From my own experience, I think that what we call ghosts are not trapped souls, but are the energy from that person that is attached to an area or left behind.

This can be intelligent energy in that it can communicate with us, or what we call residual energy where a pattern or activity keeps repeating itself, regardless and unaware of what is going on around it.

With the psychic work I’ve done, I don’t find that what is left here feels complete and 3 dimensional enough to be a soul or the full essence of someone whom has died.  Instead, I have found that what is there is that part of a person’s energy, personality, intellectual activity, etc that was particularly active or important in the area.  This energy has left a recording.

That doesn’t mean that we can’t have more fully rounded conversations with the dead.  I have had people come visit me, but it’s very different.  They pop in to chat and go away again.  Quantum Mechanics and String Theory have been providing some possible explanations that make sense to me. It seems very possible that we can bleed through or cross into other universes or dimensions.  It is possible this is what happens when we have a conversation with a more complete being.

Crossing over between worlds might also account for some of the variety of creatures that make up some ancient mythology.  Maybe fairies, dwarfs, elves and such are real, but live in other dimensions.  Sometimes our worlds are close and we can see or interact between the barriers.  This fits with my own experience seeing something that looked more like a dwarf or an elf – I’m not sure which.  I saw him in a place I could tell was an opening, and he wasn’t fully in this plane.

What are your ideas and experiences with this?

Friday the 13th

With the first Friday the 13th of the year less than an hour and a half a way, I thought I’d see what the day means to others.  What do you know of the history or reasons for the superstition about the day?  Do you have personal stories associated with those superstitions?  Is the day unlucky, just another day, or even lucky for you?

I’m not sure how much I buy into lucky days, but Friday the 13ths are certainly not unlucky for me.  I usually consider them a good omen day!
