Ghost Hunting 101
After my first paranormal investigating experience, I came to realize the most important tool we can utilize is our own instinct and intellect. With all of the expensive equipment out there available, I want to recommend simply three things.
First you need a flashlight. This may sound obvious but I cannot stress enough how important safety is when investigating. Whether you’re out at night or mid-day in dimly lit areas, a small flashlight is imperative.
Second, an audio recorder or digital camera or simply a smart phone which does both. You’re going to want to capture your experiences – evidence, if you will. You’re going to want to share with people. You’re going to want to remember this. My first experience I had an old digital recorder that I use for recording classes and my iPhone for the camera. I caught evidence on both.
Third and most important is you. Pay close attention to all five of your physical senses. What do you see, hear, smell, feel, and taste? Take note of any changes. See if others in the group validate what you’re experiencing. Whether they do or they don’t, don’t discount your experience. Check in on those sixth sense feelings, whether it’s instinct, gut, intuition or whatever you want to call it. Be aware of it. Acknowledge it.
Pulling these three tools together, you can begin your investigative process. If you find you want to make the investment and purchase additional tools, then go for it. But don’t forget to start off with the basics.
