Back at the beginning of this year, I found a copy of The Amityville Horror at our local library. Like most people, I knew the story of what supposedly happened at the house in Amityville, New York named High Hopes. I knew of it from various paranormal shows and the wide variety of movies that came out on the subject. From those movies and shows, I thought I knew a lot about the hauntings but the book really opened my eyes to some of the things left out of those programs.
Since my blog post last month about the three most common questions my facebook messenger and email have blown up with questions and comments about talking to spirits and using an Ouija board. I decided to address some of the questions, comments, and concerns that were shared with me.
One question I seem to be asked a lot since I have started being more open about being a paranormal investigator is if I only do private investigations or if I do “fun” investigations. Yes, I do both. Just because I help families and spirits, doesn’t mean I don’t love to do more relaxed investigations too.
While Jeremy was gone, I ended up binge watching a few of those paranormal shows. I regretted it but couldn’t stop watching it. They were so horribly bad that it was almost comical. Comical until I realized there are people out there that watch this stuff and try to imitate it which just causes problems for everyone. I’ve seen where people have angered spirits because they didn’t know what they were doing. I’ve seen people get hurt because they had no idea what they were doing and were hunting in abandoned places they didn’t have permission to be in.
