Why is it that some people will go into a notoriously haunted location and experience nothing? What is it that makes certain individuals magnets for everything supernatural? You may be someone who always seems to connect with the other side, and you might wonder why.
I’ve heard this so many times and witnessed it personally. Multiple people will go to a haunted place, and some will have in your face experiences. At the same time, another group member will witness nothing. This happens time and time again. It can be very frustrating for a paranormal investigator who is interested in finding and documenting activity. Sometimes the supernatural just won’t cooperate.
When I looked at those who frequently experience ghosts, apparitions etc., I found some common factors. These are:
- Neurological system.
In a lot of these cases, those who are prone to witness paranormal activity have some kind of neurological issue. Some are aware that they have the issue, while others do not. Whether the issues are migraines, neuropathy, seizures, or other problems, the paranormal magnets tend to have something unusual going on with their neurological systems.
Believers are more likely to observe something than skeptics. Those who think something is going on have more success capturing EVP’s, apparitions, and other documented evidence. This makes you wonder if those who are hesitant actually close their minds off from experiences. A lack of belief may translate into a locked mind which inhibits activity.
Also, those with psychic abilities are more able to tune in when at a location which is reportedly haunted. The mind is open and contact is more likely. Psychics can even do this from a distance.
It is said that people who are drugged, drunk, or suffering from an illness can be magnets for paranormal. This goes back to mindset. If you are closed off, you cannot witness something. When people drink or take medications, their inhibitions are lowered. Also, if you are sick, you are not operating at 100%. This makes you vulnerable. It seems to lower the shield that keeps the paranormal away. These physical states seem to empower entities to make contact.
4. Entity choice
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that entities have choices. They may be drawn to some people and find others repulsive. Therefore, certain people may radiate an energy that draws entities to them. This is true for psychics. They are open, and the paranormal beings see that. An entity may view a specific person negatively and simply refuse to communicate or interact. People will get EVP’s where entities flat out say they don’t like a specific person who is there.
The paranormal is complex. The environment plays a factor in manifestations, and so do the people who are present. All of us are unique, and our bodies and minds impact whether or not we can connect with the supernatural. We do not know exactly how this comes about. Some places can have the very same characteristics as a haunted location, yet they are not haunted. What makes one location a hotbed for activity? The more we investigate, the more we make baby steps in learning what makes the paranormal tick. We as humans play a role in all of this. As of now, we have pieces of the puzzle, but we are far from putting it all together. However, it does seem like the more time someone spends in haunted locations, the more that person will experience something spooky!
