|What you really
need to know...
Let them (ghosts & spirits) know they are not forgotten
Let your journey in this field of study be a labor of love. Remember to be respectful
of ghosts & sprits, as
they were once people, and still are for that matter.
threaten or dare an unseen entity
First of all, we want to
be taken seriously. Secondly, we are ghost hunters, not bullies.
Lastly, we sure don't want any vindictive entities following us
home or worse yet, attacking and hurting us.
yourself as a professional at all times
We always want to
present ourselves as one in control. And that of course means
around other investigators, victims of a haunting, and even to
the ghosts themselves. Self-confidence and control will radiate
like a beacon of light and thus serve as a shield of protection.
Never seek out entities on your own
A team of two works well and three is the ideal number.
Larger groups will need to break up into smaller groups.
Addicting habits can be contradictory to your ghostly
Examples would be heavy addictions to drugs, alcohol,
cigarettes, an abnormal sex drive, etc. These things in excess
make you vulnerable and susceptible to attack. The attack stems
from the entities attraction to your addictions and also because
of your weakness. Mind altering substances are particularly
enticing to them.
Pay attention to your dreams
Entities will use this relaxed state of mind & body to try and
influence or torment it's targeted victim. Use whatever wording
is necessary (according to your own spiritual beliefs) to
command such an intrusion to cease. Command it in the holy name
of your God or higher power.
Use religious relics & symbols as a protection
But only use these if you believe in what they can do. It's
not the item itself that has the power, it's what it symbolizes
according to your faith. That's what actually gives it its
Listen to your instincts and your intuition
Draw from the power within. You will find this to be your
Never leave a team member behind, not ever
Commit yourself to the task at hand until it's done. A combined
effort makes the team a whole intricate working structure.
Always consider all aspects of a haunting
Go into an investigation with a kind heart and gracious
attitude. But know that most hauntings can be explained.
i.e. house settling, furnace noises etc. And as
sad as it is, you must also consider the mental & emotional
state of the victim as well. Paranoia, delusional aspects and mental illness in general may be a consideration.
As a final note; it should also be stated however, that in some cases,
an unstable person can actually be open to these types of visitors and
Always remember, you are the one in control
You have the body and thus you have the power. It's really
simple, you are in your element. This is your dimension and your
reality. Unseen entities are intruders into your space. That is,
unless they are invited in or find a way in through your
weaknesses. Be strong by curving appetites and living a
productive & wholesome life.
||Be familiar with all aspects
of the supernatural
Know well the entities you pursue. Understand them and the
things of their world. Knowledge is power. The more you know,
the more confident you become. Be careful though, not all
knowledge is good. Acquire it with a scientific standpoint.
||Your best protection is in the
life you lead
If you are active in
ghostly pursuits then evil will cross your path, so be armed. If
you are religious, then live your religion. But whether you are
or not, you best protection is to live so as to put others
first. Good deeds and a love for all life is your greatest
||Don't be afraid to experiment
Not everything you try will work. If one attempt or theory
fails, keep trying. Simply move on to the next thing on your
list. And by all means, have a list.
||Do your homework
Consider all aspects of an
investigation before you go. A preliminary walk through ahead of
time is advised. Doing a history check is helpful as well.
Anything you can find out ahead of time will be to your
Never be without outside contact
Make sure others outside your team are aware of where you are
when on an assignment or investigation. A cell phone is a must.
It's extremely rare that
you will ever hear of a full-fledged demonic possession. But it
is something that all ghost hunters need to be aware of and
briefed on. Full-possession requires an "invitation" in order to
gain a foothold. However, there are activities that can be
construed as an invitation. i.e. Ouija boards, séances, etc. A
person with heavy addictions, sins, depression or someone who is
desperately lonely are more apt to be targets. When any type of
invitation is construed, whether implied or direct, it may very
well be acted upon by such evil entities. Even with all that,
it's still rare that evil will triumph successfully, but it is
possible in some cases. Ghost hunters are somewhat susceptible
because of the nature of their work.
||Lower Level Entities
There are other less severe life forms that we need to be aware
of as well. They are evil and are here to weaken the population
through their influence. Their ultimate goal is to distract
us from our life duties and make us as unproductive as possible.
These creatures are subtle but very much determined. People that
allow themselves to be heavily influenced in this direction are
also more prone to demonic possession. This type of entity uses
distraction through such things as computers, video games,
unwholesome activities, etc. If you miss out on important family
outings or you lose your job because you want to stay home and
play video games, etc, then they have gained some control. It's
called, lower level possession. Ghost hunters need to avoid this
trap at all cost. Refer to codes 5, 6, 11 & 13. And for a good
resource, buy a book on Psychic Self-Defense.
Strive to prove the
existence of ghosts and the afterlife. We as Ghost Hunters cannot
simply rely on the word of someone with a particular gift. We
need to know for ourselves and we need to document it in our
||Rely on your senses
Be ever mindful of your own awareness. We are all born with the
gift of inspiration. We also have a bell (so to speak) that
sounds off when we are in danger. It's a gift that needs to be
focused on. Constantly pay attention to this special ability
that we all have. Especially when on an investigation. As you
become more aware and in tune, you will be able to better sense
ghosts & other types of entities.
Evidence is everything
All we really have to
show for our hard word is the evidence we collect. So take
notes, write up reports, snap pictures, collect EVPs. Keep a
||Be aware that theories change
What is believed to be true today may not be tomorrow. If
there's anything we can depend on, it's change. What we may know
about ghosts today may change tomorrow. We need to embrace
credible evidence and use that knowledge to our advantage. So be
willing to let go of old theories when need be. If we don't, we
will be left behind.
Go into every assignment with an attitude of well defined
purpose. Go knowing you have your preliminary research
accomplished beforehand and then have a plan to make it all come
together. A good investigator is organized and thorough. The
right attitude yields results!
||It's okay to be afraid
That is, as long as
it doesn't seriously effect the investigation or make you
Excessive fear will make you ineffective as a contributing
team member and will make you a target for entities. Excessive
fear or anger feeds and empowers curtain types of entities.
Enjoy the thrill of the chase and scream if you must. But
everything in moderation.
||LIVE THE CODE !
It will protect you on your journey and guide you on your quest.
Ghost hunting will be one of the most exciting experiences of
your life... enjoy!
