Many people use the terms, ghost hunters and paranormal researchers, interchangeably, but there’s a difference. Find out what makes them different, and how we can work together, after the jump.Continue reading
Everybody dreams and, sometimes, we see scary stuff in them. I don’t personally dream of ghosts, even though I spend a lot of time with them. So, what does it mean when we dream of ghosts, monsters and the supernatural?Continue reading
Psychic vampires are normal people, but they have a flaw in their energy mechanism. They can’t get enough earthly materials, like food, or spiritual energy to sustain themselves. So, they have to take it from other people. In most cases, psychic vampires don’t even know they drain energy, called chi, from others. This is quite unlike mythical vampires, who need human blood.
Let’s find out more about psychic vampires.
There are really sides to clairgustance, or clear tasting, psychics use. There’s the tasting part – when actually taste something that isn’t there. Then, there’s clairalience, or psychically smelling something. These are both physical reactions versus a spiritual event like the other psychic abilities. As with the material world, both taste and smell work together.
Let’s find out how to use clairgustance on a ghost hunt.
Claircognizance is French for ‘clear knowing.’ That means you got some information or an answer, but you have no idea why you know it or how you found the answer. This ability is usually blended with one of the other psychic abilities like clairaudience or clairvoyance. If you wanted an example of someone who has claircognizance, I’d say it’s Fox Mulder from The X-Files tv series. He often received information from out-of-the-blue.
Let’s talk about claircognizance some more and how you can use it on a ghost hunt.
Clairsentience means clear feeling in French. A lot people have had these experiences in their personal lives. The most common types are:
- Gut feelings
- Emotional states (not what you think – see below)
- Tingling sensations
- Pressure on your forehead
- Danger sense (think of Spider-Man)
Let’s talk about each one of these signals and what they can mean on a ghost hunt.
Clairaudience, or psychic hearing, is probably one of the most misunderstood psi abilities. I think it’s because people haven’t disciplined their minds enough. They confuse their own mental chatter with incoming messages from spirits.
Clairvoyance is the ability to see events and paranormal phenomena with your mind’s eye. It deals with visualizations and images. They’re not always clear: In many cases, they’re a bit fuzzy. In other cases, the images mean nothing to you, but they’re critical for someone else.
Everyone has psychic abilities. Some people can access them easily. For others, it takes some work. This post is about the work part. Not everyone has had the chance to really work with their intuition. Intuition is the key. I’m not sure if any researchers have found why our intuition works the way it does. People with active imaginations seem to access the higher source much faster than others. We all can do it with practice. Let’s find out how.
Ghost Hunting and psychic abilities really go hand-in-hand. As a ghost hunter, you try to find the unknown or unseen. Psychics can see the unknown. They complement each other. I know many paranormal groups don’t like to mix science with metaphysics, but you can run into many strange things during an investigation. This is where a psychic can really help.
