Ghosts and Ghost Hunting

According to traditional belief, a ghost is the soul or spirit of a deceased person, taken to be capable of appearing in visible form or otherwise manifesting itself to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely: the mode of manifestation can range from an invisible presence to translucent or wispy shapes, to realistic, life-like visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.

Ghost hunting is the process of investigating locations that are reported to be haunted by ghosts. Typically, a ghost hunting team will attempt to collect evidence claimed to be supportive of paranormal activity. Ghost hunters often utilize a variety of electronic equipment, such as the following types: the EMF meter; digital thermometer; hand-held and static digital video cameras, like thermographic (or infrared) and night vision; digital audio recorder; and computer. Some organized teams of ghost hunters refer to themselves as paranormal investigators.

Valley Investigators of the Paranormal, based out of the San Fernando Valley will be conducting a high-level residential investigation tonight at a historic downtown location. This site and the surrounding area is filled with history from the “old days” of Los Angeles history. We have actually found out that this location and the one next doors have tunnels that are part of an underground tunnel system.

Hi Erik

I was wondering if your research/knowledge has led you to believe that ghosts can be caught on camera or not? I know there are debates on what kind of energy is involved. The reason I ask, is because my wife took this video whilst on holiday in Torquay (Berry Pomeroy Castle). Is it strange or is it us!

Many thanks for your time.

I need someone that could help me the problem is that a ghost is scarying me in the nights i dont know why or what to do today was the second time when im sleeping in the night i woke up and it still night and i feel a wind but the windows were closed and then the blankets that i have when i sleep get really like heavy or pulling down so i cant escape and i couldnt move a single piece of my body, i tried to scream and i could not even talk, i was paralised and i could see what was happening and i felt like someone was pulling me up like levitation and suddendly i tried to scream but i could just do like a moan and he got away. but this is the second time .
could u tell me what to do?

Richii, there is a state labeled sleep paralysis, this sounds like what you MAY be experiencing. If you are sure you encountered levitation and were not dreaming, then in that case sounds like paranormal activity. If you couldnt scream that could either be because you were in shock, or it could be part of the sleep paralysis, depending on which is going on. I think an interview and possible investigation is warranted here.
