You Do What? The other side of being a Paranormal Investigator

We live in an ever changing world.
A world that embraces difference and challenge.
A world that is open to discussing different views and beliefs and applauds those that go out to search for the truth.

Well...no not really.

Some things can still be taboo in many towns and cities and it's best not to engage in those discussions.

And so, in many cases, is the topic of the after life and ghosts.



So before you jump out there and buy your T shirts with your team logo, just have a think about your family and your community and where you live and whether you can handle what comes next.

Because, not all people and not all places are embracing of your excitement and your views, and you will meet those that think you are insane, mad, off your meds, hallucinating or just plain stupid.

Many stories can be found in newspapers about ghosts.
It was even popular in the 1920's and 1930's to become a ghost and frighten the locals when no real activity was occurring!A few local lads nearly lost their lives to gun shot wounds by townsfolk trying to get rid of the g…

Mirror Mirror on the Wall - oh F**k its a Demon!

Mirrors.
Legends.
Ghostly portals.
What is all of that about and where did the connection about mirrors and demonic entities come from?




Ever since human beings became aware of their own image, there has been fascination and fear of reflective surfaces. Originally any reflective surface seemed to be something to be in awe of.  Folklore and legend have many stories relating to magic and haunted mirrors. Most of these tend to be warnings about the dangers of mirrors having negative, supernatural qualities. Chunks of obsidian were used by those who could afford it. Mirrors were seen to just not only be a reflection of the self - but of the soul and by looking into the mirror and seeing what may be behind you you may see your shadow side or the negative side of yourself. Mirrors are believed by many to be portals to the spirit realm and even other dimensions. It was and still is in many countries a very important task to take down or cover all mirrors in homes where someone has died so that it make…
