Bob asks an interesting question about electromagnetic fields, ghosts, hallucinations, and base readings. He writes:
TAPS says that ghosts cause EMF fields and need energy to manifest. Well, they also say that EMF fields cause hallucinations, so my question is what type of evidence is available to prove that a ghost causes or even raises an EMF field? Are there base line readings done beforehand? I have had many promising results with magnetic fields, but I am in need of some supporting evidence. If you or any of your members know of any supporting facts, can you let me know?

Jamie wants to know whether strange electrical activity could be a sign of paranormal activity. She writes:
Hi Michelle! I have a spirit here in our apartment. I have heard him speak before; I have felt his presence, and even caught an EVP of him. The past couple days, I noticed something strange: the nightlight in our guest bathroom turned a VERY bright white and then burned out….and last night, the lights on our ficus tree did the same thing (the lights got so bright that it woke me up…was like a sunlight)..and then they burned out, too.

Planning to ghost hunt this weekend? Here are 10 things to take with you…
10 Things to Take With You on a Ghost Hunt
1. Patience. Ghost hunting is a lot like fishing – you need patience because you won't always see results immediately. On some investigations, you'll find paranormal activity. On others, you won't. Sometimes what you thought was paranormal can be explained by natural causes. Be patient and understand that you may need to visit a haunted location several times before you experience anything unusual.

I've received a number of questions about intelligent ghost hauntings, so let's tackle some of these questions.
What is an Intelligent Haunting?
An intelligent haunting is the rarest type of haunting. (Residual hauntings are far more common.) In this type of haunting, you are dealing with an "intelligent" presence that can communicate with you, and interact with you in a seemingly "intelligent" way. This ghost is best (and most simply) described as the personality of a person who once lived and who has stayed behind in our world.

Do you make these 8 ghost hunting mistakes?
Always get permission before investigating private property. Several years ago, there was a news story about a ghost hunter who trespassed on private property to investigate a haunted house. The person who lived in the house thought the ghost hunter was a burglar, pulled out a gun, and shot him. (Fortunately, the ghost hunter was OK.) This is NOT a situation that you want to experience, so always get permission before exploring private homes.
