Reader Submission - Paranormal Veteran Gives Warning To Para-Newbies

Paranormal Veteran Gives Warning To Para-Newbies

By Sandra J Wells

After doing paranormal research and investigations for thirty years I have seen and experienced enough to write endless books about ghosts and the afterlife. However, there is another side of this research that never gets talked about. That is the long term effects that being touched by the energy of ghosts can cause. Sure we talk about what we experienced, if we caught any great evidence and the location itself but this one subject just never seems to come up in the conversation.

When I watch the paranormal TV shows I cringe when I see those people challenging ghosts to touch them. I often wonder if they take all precautions that are available to them to protect their own energy from harm. The closer we come to the energy of ghosts the more it affects us not only spiritually but physically as well. Obviously no one can avoid being touched by the energy of ghosts when it is something we can not see. Most investigators would tell you that is a risk they are willing to take. However, there are ways to protect our own energy and many just never use it. It surprises me when these new investigators ignore these simple steps using the mind set that nothing could ever happen to them and they become excited when they experience that energy sensation of being touched. Unfortunately, they still are not looking at the bigger picture.

Over the last decade or so there has been an explosion of interest in the paranormal; not that it is a bad thing at all. My concern comes when I see these new ghost hunters do a few investigations for six months or so then proclaim themselves to be experts. Those who have been in this research for as long as I have understand that it is not all about the evidence you capture but what we truly understand about the afterlife and its affects on the living.

I have seen so many of those same veteran ghost hunters dying and becoming very ill. I truly believe that because of our familiarity of the energy of ghosts we encounter we often times find ourselves forgetting that one thing that is most important; protection. Soon they find themselves having serious health issues for no apparent reason and possibly having their lives turned upside down. If you asked any paranormal veteran if they had been affected at some point I would say that at least 75% of them would agree that in can be a very real possibility. Can I guarantee that protecting ourselves before entering a haunted location will actually work? No of course I cannot. There are no guarantees in this life nor does anyone have all the answers. I can only speak from personal experiences of my own plus for others who also have tested this theory for themselves. Have I experienced any affects like I have been talking about? Yes I have. From tried and true experiences that I have gathered over the last three decades I found that when I was diligent about protecting my energy this did not occur as frequently as when I did not. It is vital that all paranormal investigators take this seriously.

If you believe that because you have investigated the paranormal for a couple years and nothing has happened to you as yet then I wish you the best in your endeavors; because it will. No investigator has all the answers to these affects and if you doubt what I am telling you I truly hope that someday you do not find out that I was right.

Is this a guest blog, Andrea, or from a book? It's an interesting perspective either way. Very glad you posted it.

While I absolutely agree with using protection techniques in the field and think people should be aware of these dangers, I just hope it doesn't discourage a new generation of paranormal investigators. Yes, there are some goofball investigators out there playing that have no business calling themselves serious investigators or experts. But... for those taking it seriously and researching and reading, it's good information to know, follow up on, and research further. Michelle Belanger’s Ghost Hunter’s Guide has lots of good protection techniques. It’s a great book and I’ve even recommended it to some clients.

I agree that people who seek ghosts should use protection. My team always states a prayer before and after we investigate an area. Several of us have been touched by ghosts/spirits. However I disagree with your statement that this experience can harm the living--protection or not. It certainly can have an impact especially on ones emotions but I have never seen it have a lasting effect. As for harming us physically I have never found evidence of this. Maybe the reason for this is the people that I investigate with and myself do not believe this can happen.

I agree with you completely. While I'm no expert at all in the paranormal, I've always considered it strange that people think themselves experts so fast and that they aren't afraid of touching ghosts.I've also seen and heard many people provoking the ghosts like "show yourselves", etc. I don't think this is a good idea, primarily because the more attention and energy you spend on a ghost, the stronger it will become. I think a lot of people are getting into this head-first, without thinking everything through.

First let me say there is no such thing as an expert in the field of the paranormal. Anyone claiming to be one is, as, I've sadly found, is either deluded,, overly opinionated or an all in all out fraud. I've had spiritual experiences all my life, but it's only been the last 10 that I've been actively seeking evidence of the souls survival. From my earliest memories every spirit I've encountered has wanted nothing more than to get their messages of a continued existence across to their loved ones. I truly believe that like attracts like. Don't play with the occult, but don't ignore spirits when they want to come through. Just my opinion but I've never had a "demon" encounter.
