I feel absolutely blessed at times, when I sit back and reflect on the research, Investigation and observational work conducted in the country I love. Weekly – if the weather permits such – I travel all over Scotland with one main goal in mind, to answer those questions that people seek; with regards to hauntings and other ghostly behaviour.
I’ve crammed in so much research, in a relatively small period of time, just shy of a decade of constant study with many hypothetical propositions – along with extensive testing – and STILL I’m no closer to the truth.
So you have tried to find a local team that you can investigate with but having no luck at all? Maybe one does not exist in your locality or if they do, they are not open to new applications at this time. This is a common theme within the paranormal field and a circumstance that is constant in all areas of the world. I may just have a solution and a speedy straight to the point guide for you……
My name is Ryan O’Neill and I am the founder and one of the coordinators at IPI (International Paranormal Investigators). I am also the owner of Haunted Scotland, an independent project whereas observation on location is the basic way of operation.
In the last article we looked at conduct and behaviour while operating in the paranormal field. We also touched upon learning, study and application which included seeking out an established organisation to see how things are properly done.
In this short article we are going to look at qualifications, qualities and exactly what’s required for effectiveness when working within this field. The common mistake as repeated over and over by newcomers to the field is a misconception that it is exactly as shown on popular TV programmes, this is a major letdown to those investing in this study, when they realise that in reality, it is so much different.
