Where Do You Go To Find A Ghost?
Keep in mind that some ghosts are perfectly happy to stay
behind at a place that brought them great comfort and joy when they were alive.
This is evident by the growing number of reports of people seeing past guests,
tenants, family members, and loved ones at familiar places, such as a home.
There are many reasons why they may choose to stay behind. Your guess is as good
as ours. Some do go on, to come back once in a while to check up on things...
Make sure things are as they left it. ;-)
When things are messed up, or moved, some spirits/ghosts
will protest and make their feelings known by making noise, turning off
equipment or draining batteries, or on very rare occasions,
stalk/spook/harass/or even physically harm someone till they are scared away.
Remember, spirits/ghosts were and are technically still people. Would you like
it if someone went into your room and starting rearranging or throwing things
away? Case & Point.
Unfortunately, some spirits don't have the luxury of
coming or going as they please. For what ever reason, something terrible
happened to them when they were alive, and their death was not in peace. Usually
battlegrounds where wars once took place are very hot spots for paranormal
activity. Crime scenes, including inside some houses, are where a spirit may
stay behind for what ever reason. Hospitals, Morgues, Grave yards, and other
places where a person's body is taken, is usually where a spirit will be found,
not too far away.
Tragic car accidents have left some spirits wondering up
and down highways and roads, believed to be lost and confused, unaware that they
have died and are dead. Those spirits who are fortunate enough to have died
peacefully, and are aware of their existence, are believed to be the ones who
are most interactive with humans and animals.
Many pictures taken have shown
spirits like to hang around babies because of the joy a newborn brings to both
the living and the after living. If you're thinking of going off on your own, trying to
find spirits, it's not recommended until you completely understand the dynamics
of the spirit world. Paranormal Investigators, and Ghost Hunters have experience
because they seek out spirits by going to where they are believed to be hanging
It's NOT recommended you go alone, and if you must, go with someone else, preferably
someone who has experience. Best bet is to go with a local group in your town or
city on a few ghost hunts. Experience it for yourself in the safety of numbers,
and with others who know what they are doing. Always be polite and respectful to
the living and to the dead. You are being judged by your actions, behavior, and
how you present yourself.
This will have a positive or negative repercussion
on future ghost hunters/PI, when they ask to investigate a site that
you've been too. Also, don't forget to follow your local, federal and state laws
on trespassing, hours of operation (for cemeteries), and getting permission from
people who are responsible for letting you investigate.

land owners, etc. )
