Do you believe in ghosts enough to hunt those critters down? Yes, no tick here. If yes, your affiliation to the ghost-like probably began when you were a kid, and friendly Arthur the spirit guide played hide and seek with you. In fact, you are probably so into ghosts you dream of presenting a Michaela Strachan-type TV show; after all she has so much fun chasing headless horsemen around Britain.
For most folks “things that go bump in the night” scare us to death, for a minority, life is a constant rerun of “The Ghostbusters” and “Casper the Friendly Ghost” . In fact “Hunt the Spook” has become more than a hobby to the ghost buster, it has become a raison d’ tre. However, before you decide to hit the “spook fantastic” , take the following advice:
- If you are an apprentice ghost buster best to go busting with friends who know one end of a photon gun from another, that kind of equipment needs a master of spooky arts at the helm.
- Be sure to fill ghost busting knapsacks with candles and matches, a torch, a 35 mm camera plus tripod, a barometer a compass, a dowsing rod, an EMF detector, a digital recorder, batteries, film and flashlights, one never knows what might show up!
- Check out the haunted area in broad daylight first. You don’t want to fall down a pothole and become one. a ghost we mean.
- Think positive before entering a haunted area, just in case the more unfortunate type of phantom tries to muss up your hairdo.
- Be respectful, do not tease or taunt ghosts, if a ghoul gets angry a ghoul gets scary.
- Take the art of ghost hunting seriously; avoid breaking into hysterical giggles or screams of hilarious fright at the first hint of a headless phantom.
- Take a little notebook with you, you can write down your observations, feelings and sensations by the light of a torch that is if you can stop your hand from shaking.
- Do not allow scary ghosts to phase you, some phantoms get their entertainment by playing pranks on apprentice ghost hunters, for example screaming in the ear, touching the face with ice cold fingers, pushing, shoving or if the worst comes to the worse, the “ectoblastic kick.”
- A first aid kit will help with any bruises, bumps or cuts that result.
- If you want to talk to a ghost ask politely, do not demand they put in an appearance; some ghosts are really shy. Be gentle, and accommodating to the more retiring googly.
- Be sure that you do not run around the haunted area trembling in fear. If you are scared, take some Bach Flower Mimulus and Aspen, both remedies help ease terrors.
- If you feel some dark and menacing presence is out to get you, gather up your clobber and run. Demons are not as friendly as ghosts.
- Make sure you send some upbeat energy into a haunted area. Perhaps you could help the spook return to the light, or ask angels to protect and guide the spirit to its true destination.
Not all “ghost experiencers”, become ghost busters. Take some famous celebs, for example, the now deceased Anna Nicole Smith had sex with what she thought was her boyfriend, only to realise it was a “spooky” kind of guy.
The thinking woman’s heart throb, Matthew McConaughey took up residence in a haunted house in 2003. Unfortunately, a spook made his life miserable. Gorgeous Matthew actually chased the entity in his all together with a base ball bat. Obviously, the man is so sexy, even a ghost could not keep their “jeeper creeper” eyes off him.
When Keanu Reeve was but a young lad he and his sister kept bumping into a ghost with no legs in a double breasted white jacket. Scream? Naah, one would expect nothing less from Matrix Star Keanu.
On the other hand if ghost busting leaves you cold, beware, and take note of the following “Don’t matter if you believe in them or not. If they’re there, they’re there,’ Mrs. Phipps from Joan Lowery Nixon’s “The Haunting.”
