Too often it has been asserted that any seances or investigations must be conducted in the dark.; this seems to me to be more in tune with the witnessing of phenomenon in Gothic novels rather than physical phenomenon during a paranormal investigation. And then contrary to the logic of the above people start taking flash photographs – Why is this ?? Why do so many insist on Darkness to conduct their forays into the paranormal, is darkness a prerequisite for paranormal activity ??
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.
So what would I know about teams then?
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.
