I am not sure about the rest of you but I have magnetic signs on the side of my truck that have our teams logo and web site on it. I don’t know if this is good practice or not. I bring this up because this morning I was driving to work and twice when I was stopped at a traffic light I had cars pull up to the side of me look at the magnet and then slowly pull up to the front of the truck and then stare into my window. The first time I wiped my nose thinking I had something hanging out of it but I didn’t. Other than the nose thing I didn’t really think twice about it until it happened the second time, different car same look. I understand how difficult it maybe for some people to understand what it is I exactly do and why I do it. This is one of the many difficulties, I, as a Paranormal Investigator, am glad to deal with. I think that I am going to start carrying a skull mask in the truck so next time this happens I could slip it on and really give them something to look at. I know they may just be curious to see what a Paranormal investigator looks like.
I am here to tell all those people who want to know or are just curious, that I as a Paranormal Investigator look just like anyone else, I have a job, I have a family, I go to church, I am a proud veteran and served in a war, and unfortunately I pay taxes. I am really no different from you in many ways. I know, that paranormal investigators have become popularized through television. I ask you to not judge me. I am not like you see on TV.
I believe the majority of the Paranormal Investigation teams missions are all the same. Mine is this I am here to aid the living, who are experiencing severe, disturbing, or friendly/frightening paranormal activity in their lives. I take an unbiased, logical, scientific, and professional approach. While at the same time I attempt to discover the truth behind the event, to offer closure for all those affected; living or dead. I specialize in the investigation and paranormal phenomenon. My vision is to collect information and analyze available evidence about the phenomenon experienced by the living, and attempt to find a cause and solution. I adhere to my beliefs and its method and philosophy about situations deemed as paranormal phenomenon. I further affirm that I am dedicated to the continued study of the paranormal and attempting to help you develop a better understanding of what they are experiencing in your life to the best of my knowledge. I believe in the Paranormal, proving that it exist is not my goal. I accept, that you may have the belief that such a thing doesn’t exist, and for those who don’t or can’t believe I say this, ” I will never have enough proof for you because no proof is possible”. To those who do believe no proof is needed.”
I think most people today want to be seen as modern thinkers and not superstitious. Admitting to an experience is not normally accepted as real and opens people up to being criticized. So, there are people who say they believe only in what science has “proven.” What if those 私家偵探 people had lived a few hundred years ago, how do you think they would have reacted to being told about electricity or about the ability to see the images of people large distances away through television, etc? Don’t get me wrong, people are entitled to what they want to believe that is why we as Paranormal investigators do what we do. We help those who may have a doubt and help them understand that it is OK.
The term “Paranormal Investigator” can include anyone interested in many areas of the paranormal such as Aliens or UFO’s, and yes, even ghosts. The key word in this title, however is “Investigator”. Webster’s Dictionary describes an “Investigator” as someone who will observe or study by close examination and systematic inquiry: to make a systematic examination: to conduct an official inquiry. The Paranormal Investigator attempts to rule out all possible natural explanations, are open minded and inquisitive, do not make assumptions and do not just assume ghosts exist, they take a scientific approach to their research and many are versed in a variety of other areas of related fields such as Parapsychology, Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Environmental, geological, and others. The Paranormal Investigator, not only uses good quality equipment when conducting an investigation, but they also know what the equipment is used for, how to use it properly and how to analyze the data they collect and correlate it with other types of evidence to have a greater view of a situation. If no evidence is apparent, they take it for what it is. Good or Bad. They do not attempt to make it fit their hypotheses. The Investigator conducts research on the area they are investigating in hopes of getting clarification on some of the evidence they may have collected. I believe also that most if not all of the Paranormal Investigation teams also go as far as offering some type of cleansing protocol or spiritual help if needed. Most of the Paranormal and Ghost hunting teams on the web are in fact Paranormal Investigators. If you are in the need of help from one of these teams or individuals, just be aware of their beliefs and their objectives.
