The phenomena of ghosts and hauntings are very real experiences that more and more people are encountering every day. It is their true cause and nature that is the ongoing mystery. In Paranormal Investigations, author Chad Stambaugh discusses the process of trying to find that one piece of evidence that could prove, without a doubt, that ghosts are real.
Paranormal Investigations shows both the beginner and the professional when and how to correctly operate the different types of equipment integral to a paranormal investigation—cameras, camcorders, voice recorders, digital video recorders, EMF detectors, dowsing rods, pendulums, and more. In addition, Chad breaks down, step by step, the correct procedures for conducting both public and private investigations, including how to deal with clients, what to look for, how to look for it, and how to document an investigation.
Through this detailed guide, Chad works toward creating paranormal unity among those who research the events or phenomena that science can’t or won’t explain.
I’ve taken the best ideas and methods and put them together in what I believe to be a concise and proper way an investigation should be handled. And I’m not talking about the high-profile celebrities on TV who, in my opinion, have lost their way due to the stardom that their shows have given them. If you watch these shows, you’ll notice all kinds of different ways to perform an investigation. Some are good, some are very wrong and dangerous, and some are even just downright ridiculous. Nor am I talking about the charlatans who parade themselves at Para conferences. No, I’m talking about the ones who do this on a daily basis, day in and day out—not those who do it just one day a week or during a weekend and say “look at me” and want to get paid for it. I am referring to those people who are out there on a daily basis to actually help people who have problems with their homes or businesses—those people who need and want to understand what is going on so that they can deal with it or, in some cases, want whatever it is gone so they can have their lives back. These very dedicated and professional few are who I base my methods and procedures on.
