In January of this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and I have been out on short term disability since. I am only making 60% of my salary and it is very hard to make ends meet right now. Here is the link if you would care to help. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! PayPal.me/hifrmthesky

No, it isn’t always finding the holy Grail … and in the world of a paranormal investigator that would be THE photographic and or video evidence ever or a completely undisputed EVP to prove beyond a shadow of the doubt that there is life after death and that paranormal investigating is simply not just a hobby. But as we know, a lot of times our cases can be very quiet. Now, for the client, that IS good.
The reason for this blog is I was just having a conversation with a friend who lives in another state. She was on a phone call and there was this other voice that came in. She found it very strange and recorded it onto a Google file and sent it to a local paranormal team to be reviewed. They basically blew her off. Their response? “Im sure it’s just matrixing.” Really? And you gather that information by simply not listening to the audio evidence? Sigh… So the moral of my story is this, don’t do that. Be courteous enough to actually ask to have the file sent to you so that you can download it and listen to it. I’m sure you’re busy because, like the rest of us, you have a full-time job. I’ve done that numerous times for people who have randomly emailed me. I’ve looked at a lot of photographs, yes many with orbs, just so that I could be fair and helpful when someone was reaching out. But yes, you just never know what you might actually get your hands on.
Yep, I’ve received some strange emails, but you have to listen and have heart because you never really know what someone is going through … if they are going through something that is possibly scaring them, please listen to them. If you don’t want to help them, find them someone who will. I wrote a blog a few months ago about basically taking your ego out of your investigations. I know, I know we love the excitement. We love to go to those haunted locations to capture evidence. But we have to remember that a lot of us said we started our teams to help people. If you were not willing to listen to people, how can you possibly help them?
In the training center at my airline, we teach our new hire flight attendants to offer the best customer service possible on top of all of the other numerous things that they have to learn. In addition to learning CPR, evacuating an aircraft, fighting a fire in flight, etc., we teach them that making the customer happy is always important. Heck, give them what you can. Just give them the pickle if they ask for it.
To my para friends… do you remember why you became a paranormal investigator? I do… It wasn’t because I wanted a TV show (truly blessed to be a part of True Ghost Stories) or recognition or a cool team shirt (sorry Michael Guerrero we still don’t have cool team shirts… but I’m working on that) or a radio show (ok, that was totally fun!)
I started investigating because I wanted to know the “why” of things. Or to maybe stop the why of things… I’m not sure… You see, I grew up in a haunted house in Meridian, MS and saw and heard some really strange things. I know what it’s like to be afraid to be in the house by myself. To be afraid to go to sleep at night. I always had to have a light on in my bedroom at night. I know the fear of being wide awake at night and having something you can’t see sit on your bed… My mother didn’t believe in ghosts and my didn’t brushed me off saying I had a vivid imagination. It wasn’t until I was an adult that he admitted there was a presence in our house. These are the things that immediately come to mind when a client calls and says “my children are afraid… how soon can you be here?” As a pre-teen and teenager I didn’t have anyone to turn to for help. There weren’t any paranormal teams in Meridian, MS at the time. That is why I do what I do…
Sure, many of us have booked public investigations with groups at well known haunted locations and have been excited about what we are going to see or experience. Let’s break out the equipment!!! I have a new Parascope 360!!!! But when it comes to our clients at private residences or their businesses, it’s different. The ego is checked and it’s all about the client… The client always comes first. What is second nature to us and what seems perfectly normal, to a certain degree, is possibly a very confusing and frightening time for them. So, let’s not get too excited, mmmk? First of all, they are more than likely embarrassed that they have called us in the first place. How many times have their phone calls started with, “I swear I’m not crazy?” Oops, that sounded like a lecture. All my friends that are seasoned investigators are nodding “yes” and I’m not talking to you… If you’re new, read that twice. 😉
And you know what? If you don’t get any evidence (audio, video, photos) of a haunting but find loose water pipes that bang in the basement or doors that are improperly hung that open and close by themselves, it’s still ok. You’ve still helped the client. Because 9 times out of 10 they really don’t want their house to be haunted. Closure always helps the client… OK, except for that one client many years ago who was mad when we couldn’t prove her house was haunted… There is always one…
I may have rambled… I’m horribly jet lagged… ✈️👻
