Question to all the ghost hunters out there: what do you do with the knowledge that you’ve found a ghost? Do you attempt to connect with it on a deeper level and get it to move on? Find out more about it? Ask deeper questions than “Are you here? Why are you here?” Maybe ask what life on the “other side” is like for it? Do you attempt to release its energy from this realm? Do you attempt to do anything else with the newly discovered knowledge, other than just “find it”?
I ask, because it seems to me there’s so much more to do with finding this kind of energy than just (and I do not mean to be “dismissive” of your occupations–I’m sure the work is fun!) stamping a site as “haunted” and moving on. I also understand the difference between a “ghost hunter” and a “medium.” And, sure, it may be great for businesses, something declared as “officially haunted,” but what about the more far-reaching implications? That if the active haunting is actively communicating, communicating back to it that it should move on, “into the light,” as it were? I understand that some hauntings are more like tapings that just replay themselves over and over, but have investigators still attempted contact even with those sightings? Asking or projecting energy back to them to get them to move on? Perhaps it’s not so much even a case, in some instances, of a “haunting,” as some people (including the investigators) simply being more sensitive to certain energies that allows them to see “ghosts”?
Admittedly, I’m no expert in this area, but these kinds of questions have always intrigued me. I believe in ghosts, but it seems to me there is so much more to learn and probe, here, about all this paranormal activity, rather than just “finding” them, as I’ve mainly seen on TV (unless TV is not showing the whole investigation). I was impressed with one ghost hunter show in particular, about a year or so ago (not sure if it was Ghost Adventures, with Zak Bagans). It dealt with “poltergeist activity,” and the host impressed me with coming up with the theory that it most likely wasn’t “angry spirits,” but chaotic and confused energy of those “experiencing” said activity. I like that kind of thinking.
Anyway, thanks, in advance, for any comments!
