Sometimes avoiding some properties is the best way to harmonize with the environment. In the case of paranormal energy, or "hauntings" there are ways to look at the building and its environment to determine contributing factors to this phenomenon. This article explores environments and patterns to avoid with the type of properties that have been documented by paranormal researches as having paranormal activity.
Most people have some sort of belief in the afterlife. Most talk about the soul or spirit leaving the body after death. And though the story will vary by culture and religion, I find it amusing so many believers of the afterlife scoff at the notion that ghosts and spirits exist. But better research tools, more information about experiences and consistence evidence (though circumstantial) is building the case to validate people's experiences.
Paranormal studies often consider "energy" as a key characteristic in determining if a building has activity of the unexplained. As paranormal researchers seek to document evidence of a haunting and other unexplained events, the devices used are ones that allow them to read or capture fluctuations in energy patterns. Sometimes cameras and recorders are used to capture things that the five senses can not detect on their own. Thermal imaging cameras, temperature sensitive tools, and EMF devices are just a few items in their arsenal.
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, there is something to be said about strange occurrences with credible witnesses and unexplained evidence that makes us all realize we know less then we are willing to admit. The universe itself is a major unexplained phenomenon that no scientist or religious leader can state with conviction on how it works, why it works, nor can they proclaim we know everything there is to know about life itself.
There is a is a universal energy at work and it makes our entire solar system function; it governs the physical features of this planet and operates through nature; it determines how planets must move; it is the creator of human nature, and understands the DNA of all life. You can call it a mix of protons, neutrons, life force, the great spirit, God, or whatever fits your belief system. You can choose to understand this force through a religious belief, or you can choose to understand this force through a more scientific system, like Quantum Physics.
The bottom line is everything is some form of energy. In paranormal cases, researchers are trying to understand through the change in energy, if hauntings are real. However, there are certain methods that have existed for centuries that deal with the probabilities for hauntings, thus it is a good decision to avoid properties with these characteristics. To violate these rules, is to take the risk that you may end up with uninvited guests of the paranormal kind. Here are a few basic rules:
- Don't live in a home (or build a home) where violent deaths occurred.
- Don't live next to a cemetery or on top of a burial ground.
- Don't build on land considered sacred by the local native people, live in a former church or a funeral home, or next to a hospital.
- Renovations and construction can stir up energy that has negative influences such as accidents, delays, and all-around bad luck. Renovations are often sited as a trigger for haunting experiences.
The above are pretty obvious clues. Here are ones related to specific energy patterns that a practitioner can calculate.
- Don't hang wind chimes in your home. This can be a trigger for hauntings if it is located with a certain negative energy patterns.
- Homes with overly passive energy patterns can also be candidates for hauntings.
I worked on a research project several years ago studying the patterns homes where there was evidence of activity.
- Most of the buildings were old, and they are in their "dead" cycle in terms of the quality of energy pattern. The dead cycle meaning that the home is built in a period in which the energy cycle is longer increasing in momentum, or not even decreasing in its energy pattern. It is basically at a halt.
- Most of the buildings have the least desirable energy blueprints, which is bad for health and bad for wealth.
- Most have a electrical transformer close to the building (not just the pole and electrical wires, but the actual transformer is on the pole).
- Underground water veins from natural spring/cavern type formations or old large trees that are deeply rooted in the ground.
- Many are on raised land (hill).
We can hypothesize that these characteristics are influences that increase the chances for paranormal activity to occur. Most likely the combination of the geography, the home's energy blueprint, and the type of energy created from past occupants are a recipe for paranormal activity. Why, or how it occurs is still not known.
