These are the basic ghost hunting tips!
By now I assume you know how to ghost hunt. You know your location, you got your basic equipment and are well dressed in case of eternal winter in a haunted bathroom. But there are still some, let’s say, pro tips you should keep in mind.
For starters always have your ID with you in case something happens. You never know if you’re gonna’ trip and fall down the stairs and need to call an ambulance. That being said, bring a cell phone!
Like Reds fans say, you’ll never walk alone. It’s a given to have someone with you to help out or in case of an emergency. Oh, and always tell someone who isn’t going with you where you are actually ghost hunting, you know, just in case.
Bring liquids for hydration. Alcohol is off-limits for obvious reasons. No smoking either since haunted houses are for some reason always old and made of wood. Don’t want a Wickerman show do ya’?
Like some are skeptical of your explanations of some events, you be skeptical about theirs. Be sure to investigate every phenomenon be it natural or supernatural to ensure you are on the right track. By eliminating every natural cause of something, you are bound to discover something supernatural!
Get well informed about the location you are investigating by reading and researching. You should even explore the location by day to get a better idea of what to expect so you don’t bump into things at night. That being said, take lots of photos for later reference.
If you are ghost hunting in an open space, like a meadow or a forest, you will need clear weather conditions. The cold can’t hurt you now since you got your trusty winter jacket, but fog, wind, rain and snow can interfere with your hunt and your ghost hunting equipment. Nevertheless, bring a pair of warm and fuzzy gloves just in case. A hat wouldn’t be a bad idea either.
Clear your mind before a ghost hunt. Ghosts can feel your emotions and if you’re sad after a breakup or angry because you just got fired, ghosts will not appear and shun you. Negative feelings will certainly drive spirits away and your ghost hunting trip will be for nothing.
And last, but not least, be respectful of the ghost and the locations they are occupying. The spirit decided to reside on that specific location for a reason, be it something of sentimental value, their previous home or they just liked it in their previous life so don’t go around littering, destroying or messing up the place. You are basically in someone’s home so be nice!
