Hopefully we might get some interesting stories from paranormal investigators.

In the meantime I came across this episode of Ghosts of Morgan City to start us off.

The episode was picked up on social media basically because of this

It will also repeat a few times on the Travel Channel over the next few days:  https://www.travelch...<br /> <br /> Although I'm liking this more than Ghosts of Shepherdstown, it still seems somewhat contrived and plotted in advance. Ben Hansen does lend more credibility to the show IMO. The footage is impressive if it isn't an actual person/faked for the show

The footage does appear interesting but I concur with Vlawde that network paradramas will contrive whatever it takes to make it interesting for ratings & sponsorship.

If the footage is real, I saw another angle to the apparition. From their evaluation, it was intelligent by nature because they hoped to cross it over to the other side. The majority of apparitions and such are "residual" in nature and ONLY a very small percentage are said to be intelligent.

Can you cross over a reoccurring imprint? Can you cross over imprints from the living?

On a FACTUAL note about credibility I give it a -1. I caught on more than one occasion, a Trifield being used in a handheld operation which defeats the purpose of a meter that is meant to be stationary to zero out properly. Obviously, they don't understand *or care* about the correct use of a precision device or they do this to enhance the dynamic nature of video production to the segment.

Oh you are a hard task master EVP only a (-1) for credibility.  LOL. Your expertise is always appreciated :)

It was a very interesting investigation, thank you to everyone who took the time to comment.

Here is another interesting capture!

Ghost Investigations New Mexico said they captured this interesting "Wisp Anomaly" while investigating a private small stucco house built in 1942 but they also were able to get a class A EVP. What do you think?

Well it's a nice little clip but those are Sooo NOT class A EVPs :bad:

And the "light" across the painting is a dust orb. Not sure about the "whisp" but I'd guess dust or kitty fluff.

All in all though I think they did a good job :yes: They no doubt went through tons of audio and video and just pointed out the "maybes" that were found :good:

Sorry Klainey they don't win a vote for credibility. Education is fundamental in any research. How can you be the measuring stick in the paranormal when you use an instrument improperly. It's the equivalent of reading a map incorrectly and finding yourself in Chicago instead of New York.

You might want to fix your statement. You've already influenced what we're suppose to hear by telling us what you hear yourself personally.

Unfortunately it's not a Class "A"  EVP. That's determined by 3 individual submissions drawing the exact same conclusion in word conveyance. You're not likely to get multiple people agreeing on the same words. Popular television has distorted the mass perception on how a good EVP sounds. The cadence is different to a human voice but a crystal clear EVP/AVP sample will have identifiable words without exception.

Thanks EVP I would like to hear a class A EVP. I found this other video of the clip, I think the wisp fell off and was cut out in her video.

I'd be happy to submit one Klainey but I feel it's a very STRONG class B instead of an A. Several times I've received identical determinations by others but I've also found in some cases disagreement. Your mileage may vary. Let me know if you want me to upload it here or start a new thread. I readily admit, I don't like uploading audio files to the WWW. I'm funny that way. Audio is much harder to track on the web than photos.

An old but interesting concept

Knock once for yes ...... twice for no

Sarah  writes
One of my favourite techniques that I incorporate into every single investigation is simply knocking. I will usually ask ‘can you please give us a sign you are here? Can you knock like this for me?’ and I will usually knock on a hard surface loudly 3 times. Sometimes I may knock in a familar tune and ask if they can finish it. I have been criticised for doing so in the past because I am told it doesn’t work. That may very well be, but what if it does work? How do we know that a spirit can make a K2 light up? We don’t know that they can but we still try it! Most of paranormal investigation is based on assumption. We assume that a spirit can communicate with a K2. I assume that if a spirit can do all of these things, that they can knock. It would seem a lot of the investigators throughout time would agree and also adopted this technique.

I have had what has sounded like a knocking as a response once so my success rate considering the number of times I have used it is not great. Is that a bad thing though? I don't necessarily think it is. We know that not everything is paranormal so if it worked 70% of the time it would make me question that perhaps what I am interpreting to be an unexplained knock is not up to scratch and I perhaps need to relook at things. If it is seldom working, it means that I am properly debunking and investigating it's origin, because most of the time if not all the time, I should be able to explain where it is coming from and what is causing it. It is a technique that I believe really requires you to put your investigator’s hat on. You have to make sure that any noises that follow are not just the sound of a house or building settling. Is the wind contributing to the noise? You have to figure out, is the knocking you are hearing unexplainable? Follow the sound, where is it coming from? This is getting into the bones of what investigating is all about. Following activity, debunking things, looking for the rational and most importantly, not relying so much on the expensive flashy gadgets because you don’t necessarily need them to do an investigation.

This was once a very popular technique used amongst old school investigators well before all custom made gadgets came into the market. I am often asked by people if certain pieces of equipment are worth the money or someone starting out will ask me, what is the first piece of equipment I should buy? I honestly believe that when you first start investigating, you should learn to investigate without all the fancy equipment. Again because it teaches you to actually investigate and debunk. You start to learn what things can make noises, what a house settling sounds like, what effect wind can have on things. If we are sitting in a room focused on a piece of equipment, sometimes we miss these things.

If you are on an investigation why not just give it a try. What have you got to lose? If you get it working you can have a conversation. Knock once for yes twice for no. Knock if I am heading in the correct direction. Knock loudly in the room you want me to enter. Another way you incorporate knocking is to write down all the letters of the alphabet on a piece of paper. You can call out the letters and ask them to knock when you get to the correct letter. It may be able to help you get a name. Write down your observations.

It is not a ground-breaking technique that is going to change the wheel or anything. More often than not, nothing happens, but that is true in any paranormal investigation. We know that it isn’t like it is on tv. A vigil in room likely lasts for hours not just 5 minutes as it does on tv. Most of the time at the end of the vigil, nothing will have happened and it is onto the next room. On tv, in that 5 minutes they have come up with ground breaking evidence. It just doesn’t work that way. Real investigating takes time and patience and that is exactly what the knocking technique encourages. There is a reason why certain techniques that old school investigators have stood the test of the time. It is because people believe there is something to it. It doesn’t matter if someone has a mobile phone on or if there is radio or electrical interference. A knock is a knock, it is the job of the investigator to get to the bottom of the knock and you know …….. investigate!

If you want to use knocking, DO NOT ask, instruct.

Human spirits are capable of knocking. So are other intelligent lifeforms/entities/beings.

One of the most naive assumptions I come across on forums like this one, are people assuming they know who they're communicating with. They want it to be their dead granny, so they assume it's their dead granny, etc.

To be perfectly honest, I don't know what we are communicating with. There's no adequate way to substantiate. That would require extensive repetitive testing with repeatable results and then assuming of course you're not being lied to.

Many paranormal audio pioneers gave a multitude of possibilities as to what is being communicated with. Raudive had his dead mother talk to him but then again whatever it was could have been pretending to be his mother. Or for that matter, Raudive could have been unconsciously projecting the voice. There's more questions than answers in this field.

That's an accurate observation.

They want it to be their dead granny, so they assume it's their dead granny, etc.

Many of the home investigations that initially got me into performing indoor investigations on a regular basis had clients with hidden agendas. They weren't always truthful in calling out for help. Once we submitted our final report, there were a good number that simply had unresolved issues with a relative passing. Reaching out to us was thought to offer an avenue of communication with loved ones on the other side. Even more frequently, clients lied about activity. In fact, the lie was in hopes of baiting a paranormal team just to investigate whereas there wasn't any activity to begin with.

This pushed our team out of home investigations entirely and into investigating/researching historical buildings. It's a much healthier approach with a searchable historical background. Additionally it reflected in our professionalism when we revealed to the client and/or performed charity presentations to help historical societies in need of money.
