If you are planing to travel in the near future I suggest you go and visit a haunted place or two. It would certainly make for interesting vacation. There are many places that are open to the public so you can do your own exploring. Other places are well known museums or homes and castles that give tours. Below are a couple of links to articles about places that you might want to visit if you are in the area.

Just because I believe and have seen ghosts it does not mean I am not Christian. So many of the websites for amulets, ghost facts and haunting info are tainted with Wicca. Religion of lack of has no bearing in the haunting that I have known of. I don’t think that any spirit will come up to you and inquire what your beliefs are before making their presence known. After all, how many burglars inquire about the income status of their victim before doing the deed. We contain human spirits before death and become human spirits after death. As to “evil” spirits they were once evil humans, no more demonic than the next evil human.

I spoke in an earlier post about protecting yourself form harm if you plan on doing any ghost hunting. Here is more on that subject. This time I will talk about amulets

An amulet, meaning “an object that protects a person from trouble”) or a talisman (from Arabic طلاسم tilasm, ultimately from Greek telesmaor from the Greek word “talein” which means “to initiate into the mysteries.”) consists of any object intended to bring good luck and/or protection to its owner. Potential amulets include: gems or simple stones, statues, coins, drawings, pendants, rings, plants, animals, etc.;

All faiths both Christian, pagan and non-Christian practise some form of amulet nurturing. Take for example wedding rings. In the Catholic church they are blessed with holy water and prayer to ensure a happy marriage. In most Christian faiths the wearing of the cross is thought to protect the wearer from evil or harm. Pagans have their own set of symbols. American Indians have many different types of amulets for protection. Click on the amulet links to find out more about amulets their use and types.

I am always amazed at the television ghost hunters. They look like they feel immune to any unearthly attacks they may have. Many psychics and even clergy will tell you that you need to have some sort of protection. That protection may come in the form of a “guardian angel”, a spirit guide, a trusted and personal saint, a passed on family member or what ever deity you worship. You need to have that protection in place BEFORE you go looking for trouble. Sometimes that protection finds you. If you have had any miracles happen in your life then whatever spirit you attribute that miracle to would be your “guardian”.

Unearthly attacks cannot only be physical but spiritual too. After an encounter you may have a personality change or become very depressed. This is due to your spirit being attacked. That is the time to call on your spiritual guide to help you and seek out others that are experienced in attacks on the spirit.

Ghost hunting is not something to be taken lightly.

One of the most commonly reported sighting of ghosts is when a person wakes up to find a strange shadow or figure standing near them. This is also one of the worse times to claim it was a real ghost. When a person first awakes they are between a conscious and sub-conscoius state. Your dreams and your eyes will play tricks on you. What was a person in your dream is now a shadow in your room. That is also one of the main reasons to get a witness to your experience. Another time that is very common to report a sighting is when you are tired. Your body maybe telling you to sleep and the sub-consciuos part of your brain might be trying to kick in.

I am not saying that all sightings that occur when falling asleep or waking up are not true sightings but you must also treat those incidents with a touch of skepticism.

If you are ever asked to help investigate a haunting or looking for a ghost, do yourself and your investgation a favor and do it with the lights on or during the day time. Human eyes are not designed to see well in the dark and you could easily mistake a shadow for a spirit. Ghosts and spirits don’t care if the lights are on or off. If they are there – they are there.

Most genuine sightings are documented to have happened during the daylight hours in a well lit room or garden.

I am a big fan of “Most Haunted” on the travel channel and “Ghost Hunters” on the Sci-Fi channel. I also realize that both of those shows are purely entertainment.

I always get a big kick out of the fact that both shows like to turn off the lights to do their “investigation”. Let’s face it – the only reason they are turning out the lights is to make it more dramatic for the cameras. Ghosts don’t care if the lights are on or off. Humans have poor eyesight at night, so turn off the lights and see if you can see things that aren’t there and scare yourself silly.

Maybe one day we will get some REAL paranormal investigators on TV, until then we are stuck with the cameras with night vision.
