If you have watched many of the television shows featuring ghost hunters you probably have noticed everything is done at night and in the dark. If you are not familiar with paranormal investigating you may have even asked “Why are paranormal investigations conducted in the dark?” There are many different reasons for this and let’s take a look at some of the main reasons ghost hunters do it in the dark.
A majority of paranormal activity is reported to have happened at night. Many clients say that the later the hour, the more activity seems to occur. This could happen for many reasons. The clients are finally home to witness things happening, things are too noisy during the day to notice or the spirits want to disturb the homeowners to get the out. No one really knows the reasons.
Having little to no light in a room allows ghost hunters to focus on the energy of the room. Investigating in the dark removes all visual distractions allowing us to truly get a feel of the room.
To capture light anomalies, also known as orbs or light balls. These anomalies form out of no where and are best seen or documented in the dark. It is also said that many apparitions have a faint glow around their formation, which is best detected in the dark.
Investigating at night also makes it easier to debunk some claims of paranormal activity. We are able to detect whether the light in the room is truly paranormal or just the headlights of some car passing by. It is easier to see where the light is coming from to be able to debunk its origin.
Just because a majority of investigations occur in the dark, it does not mean you cannot ghost hunt during the day or with the lights on. Ghosts make themselves present at all hours of the day, regardless of the amount of light shining in a room or area under investigation. Try conducting two investigations - one at night and one during the day. This will give you a better chance of making contact and gives you a way to compare evidence collected.
