My Goal is to Capture the Best Evidence Possible

There’s an abounding list of tools which are being used to enhance paranormal investigation and spirit communication. While some methods are absolutely classic, the benefits offered by today’s technology have provided us with a myriad of innovative options. Listed below are ’my three essential tools'. Make sure, however, to check my blog regularly for discussions about many other methods and techniques.

  1. Digital voice recorders and analogue cassette tape recorders are used to capture EVP’s.
  2. A Go Pro handles both video and still images.

  3. Dowsing Rods|Divining rods serve as a method of communication during interviews. 


Paranormal Investigation

Philly Ghost Hunt

  1. "An idea, like a ghost, must be spoken to a little before it will explain itself."
    Charles Dickens
  2. Ghost hunting happens equally well during the day as it does at night. There’s no rule dictating that it must be done at night. Spirits are not necessarily more active when the sun goes down.
  3. You don’t need expensive recording equipment to capture EVP’s. In fact, you’ll often do better with just the opposite. Theories suggest that spirits use background noise to ‘speak’. Remember they're not using a ‘natural voice’ to communicate.
  4. Digital voice recorders work very well when used to capture EVP’s, but analog cassette recorders may work equally as well. In fact, in some instances, they seem to be the better option. Having said that, both devices provide great opportunities to capture incredible evidence.
  5. EVP’s do not just occur on digital voice recorders or cassette recorders. Such sound anomalies may occur on telephones, speakers or other types of devices where sound is transmitted.
  6. An EVP does not always contain a voice or vocalization, the capture could be click, bang or other type of sound.
  7. Two popular tools often used during paranormal investigations are EMF detectors and thermometers. Changes in environmental conditions, such as electromagnetic frequency and temperature may suggest spirit activity.
  8. Dowsing or divining rods have been used for several purposes beyond paranormal studies. One of the best known applications is the ability to help locate the presence of underground water. As early as the 15th century, the reputation for dowsing suffered, as the rods were branded as tools used for witchcraft and sorcery.
  9. Dowsing|divining rods as tools for divination have been noted historically in Ancient Egypt and Ancient Rome. The most lauded orator and lawyer, Cicero and his contemporary, Tacitus, a noted historian and statesman, both wrote on the topic.
  10. Mention spirit boards and the popular Ouija board comes to mind. Utilizing this method as a tool for divination and communication is, however, a fairly ancient practice. Accounts of the Ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician, Pythagoras, having used spirit boards to seek guidance and inspiration were recorded in 550 BC.
