"I think I have a ghost in
my house. What should I do now?"
That is one of the most common questions we are asked.
This article will help you understand the typical steps for tracking possible
paranormal activity in your home, and then for contacting a paranormal
First - Don't
In many situations there is a very common and
non-paranormal explanation for what you are experiencing. A great many things
are misinterpreted as being paranormal. This is made even more common by people
today being more aware of the paranormal.
Presuming there is in fact some kind of paranormal
activity happening on the whole there is very little reason to be
concerned. In spit of many celebrated reports, movies, books, television shows
etc. reports of actual harm (much less serious harm) from ghosts is extremely
rare. Click Here to read our article "Can
Ghosts Hurt You?"
Second - Keep a log.
Keep a detailed and accurate record of all activity
you experience. Be sure to list:
- The date and time something happens.
- Exactly where in your house (or other location) it
- Who it happens to or who is around when it happens.
- Exactly what happened.
- Any other details about the incident. No detail is
too small or insignificant!

Third - Contact a Paranormal Investigator.
Look for a paranormal investigation group in your air.
Be sure to find out how things like:
- How many years they have been in service performing
- How many people are in the group? How long have
they been with the group?
- What type of education and training do the group
- Are they a scientific/technology based group? Or a
- What are their rules/requirements for coming to
your home? (ex: a minimum of people in the house during the investigation, no
pets or animals around, can come during the week or weekends only, etc.)
- Will they give you a written report of their
findings or just tell you?
- Do they charge for an investigation? (all reputable
groups will not charge to investigate. Some may ask for a donation to help
with operating and travels costs but should be willing to do the investigation
without a donation).
These are the main points to consider if you think you
are experiencing paranormal activity in your home or business. Each case is
different and will almost certainly have different aspects and requirements for
the investigation. But these 3 items are generally standard for the initial part
of an investigation.
If you have any questions about these items or about
other aspects of having an investigation at your home or business please feel
free to contact us.
