I hope you have read “Ghost Hunting 101: How to handle spirits, Part 1” before moving onto this article. If not, feel free to go to read that one first. However, both articles do not need to be read in order, just be aware that you are missing more information than what is just posted in Part 2.
With that said, here is the continuation of helping novice ghost hunters handle and communicate with spirits.
When dealing with the paranormal world, you musk keep in mind that just like the living, every spirit is unique. Just because one method of communication worked yesterday, does not mean the same method will work today when trying to communicate with a different entity. Plus, they are also moody, just like the living. So it all depends upon the day, who you are contacting and the mood they are in.
By simply following a few simple guidelines, you may have a better chance of communicating with some spirits and have good results from it.
Let’s take a look at a continuation on how to handle spirits.
Personal protection during a paranormal investigation all depends on the investigator. Religious artifacts will not work if the person holding onto does not believe in its power. This is a personal decision, but just remember to seek assistance from your spiritual leader if you have any questions about personal protections.
No Man Left Behind
No matter how scared you may get, never, never leave another team member behind. Always investigate in groups of at least two members. If you are uncomfortable, talk to your other team members and leave together. Also, to turn things around, if another team member says he is frightened and wants to leave, honor his wishes and leave with him.
Listen to your gut. When you feel something is not right, get out of there. Apologize for running away and let the spirits know why you are leaving. Sometimes, just like humans, they do not realize they are freaking you out. Once they realize this, they may be open to communicate again, but a little less forceful.
Study up on the location you are investigation and learn about its historical value. Find out what tragedies occurred there, who formerly lived there and what the building was used for. This will help you have something the spirit can relate to when trying to communicate with it.
Do not be afraid to test different methods of communication. If one method fails, try a different one. May the spirit does not want to talk, but is willing to knock on the wall or touch your hand. If you are not getting any results try something different.
Well, looks like there is more to write about than Part 2 will hold. Check back later in the week for more details on how to handle spirits.
