In several paranormal investigations of haunted locations both members of my team and myself have experienced ghostly activity after we departed the haunted site and went home for the evening. This activity continued at our places of residence. The activity occurred randomly, taking turns at one of our houses then another, over a period of several weeks it would visit different team members.
This I found very interesting, the big question is how did the spirit locate each of us at our private homes?
At first I thought that possibly they hitched a ride in the car, although that would explain them coming to one of our houses it didn’t explain them being at everyone’s house. Five cars all leave at the same time, all go in widely different directions, all ending at different destinations and yet all five were found by the spirit.
Then I thought well could there have been a spirit, which accompanied each of us separately, possibly. But then it didn’t make sense that some would come home with us and do nothing until a few days later or even a week later, we all reported the activity on different days and times, spanning a couple of weeks. Matter of fact no one reported activity occurring at his or her home on the same date as another member.
A Note About EVPs
While conducting investigations involving EVPs and the review of those recorded voices. I find it somewhat funny how the human ego works.
I watch as most investigators quickly assume that whatever is recorded has everything to do with them. It is true that sometimes the spirit has a message to impart to the investigator, however more often that not the message or part of the conversation, I find, is between the spirits and not intended for you at all. The investigator has forgotten or may have never considered that they have deliberately brought in a piece of equipment to be used to eavesdrop on the other side.
Many times it is clear that the message in the EVPs is not for the investigator, I find sometimes this leads the investigator to automatically jump to the conclusion that the haunting is residual and not that of an intelligent spirit. Remember that spirits within a haunted building are not standing around waiting for you to show up, they are actually interacting with each other and doing things regardless if you are there or not, they don’t simply exist for your convenience.
So the next time you label a spirit residual instead of intelligent consider the fact that it is not all about you.
