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

Mindset

Vulnerability

Entity choice

  1. 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.

2. Mindset

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.

3. Vulnerability

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!

A brief overview to ward off evil spirits

I wanted to do a quick note about how to ward off evil because I have received many emails from people who are afraid. They worry about dark entities stalking their homes. They fear curses and the effects of bad mojo. They want to do something about their fear, but they feel helpless to protect themselves.

If this sounds familiar, then listen up. You need to know that you are more powerful than you think. You can repel negativity.There are many ways to go about it. Pick the method which feels right for you.

You can picture a bright white light which will engulf evil. This can be a very strong form of protection. The more you believe, the stronger it is. This really works, so don’t be afraid to try it when you feel scared.

If you are a person of faith, you can always call on a higher power to protect you. All you have to do is think it, and spirit protectors will be there to help you. You are never alone if darkness is near you. Positive entities will be near too. Remember you are not alone. You are not abandoned.

It is important that you control your fear. Evil feeds on fear. If you are afraid, it will make things worse. Your worry will give bad things power. So you must take your power back. Don’t be afraid. As difficult as it sounds, do your best not to react with fear when strange things happen. This can be one of the hardest things to do. However, it is important.

If you feel that you must have something in your hands to protect you, you can always wear religious items or get holy water. Some feel that burning sage cleanses the air. If that brings you comfort, then by all means, do it (but take precautions so you don’t burn your house!)  Whatever stabilizes you in a healthy way is fine.

For those who believe in the power of crystals, amethyst is said to increase intuition. Some may not know that it also can deflect negative energy. Amethyst is my personal favorite because it does so many things. It is the color of royalty. It absorbs bad vibrations, and it brings peace. Black tourmaline works well for protection too. Crystals are beautiful to look at and make wonderful decorations. This can help increase your positive vibration and deflect negativity. Most towns have rock shops or spiritual shops where you can purchase these inexpensively.

Along those same lines, some people report that having small fountains in their homes bring tranquility. Again, this can help you feel calm which will help you handle anything bad that is happening. Stress relief is key.

Additionally, listening to happy music is said to raise the vibration in the home and bring in light. Plus, happy music has been shown to have positive effects on the body. This is a win-win situation for you. You get to listen to good music and get rid of bad things that are bothering you.

If you feel it is really necessary, you can always get a blessing for your home. A holy person can come and help purify the property. You may be surprised at how many people will be happy to help you. But you have to ask. Don’t be afraid to ask.

You don’t have to buy items to protect you. Your faith is powerful enough to draw help to you. However, I have found that people in the midst of spiritual crisis like to have something they can hold in their hands for protection. It gives them a sense of calm which helps diminish their fear. But know that you don’t need to spend one penny to get rid of darkness.

The more you can bring happiness into your home, the less evil will be able to bother you. The point is that you must take care of yourself. You must find your smile in life. The more joy you bring into your heart, the less anything bad can bother you. I know it sounds simplistic, but you have more power than you think. And making sure that you get enough rest and relaxation is key to handling any difficult situation. Don’t let fear get the better of you.

**Update: While it is important to not let fear overcome you, evil spirits are nothing to be toyed with. I’ve worked with people who have not treated this problem with the seriousness it deserves. These things are real and can destroy you. The techniques I discussed above are basic tools. If you are facing an evil entity, it is important to get help if the basic tools do not improve the situation quickly. Always get yourself checked out by a doctor if you are seeing and hearing things, and you should get an environmental check for your living quarters to ensure there is nothing in the environment which could be causing the trouble. If you have ruled out other causes, then please reach out for help. Evil is ancient, and it will ruin you.

Autistic Kids Are Magnets For Ghosts

They are special, no doubt about that. They have their own ways of seeing the world and communicating. And though it can be trying at times, having an autistic child can make your heart grow.  These children have so many gifts and can teach us patience. But they have other abilities as well. Autistic children are magnets for spirits. It is like they are an open door that allows the unseen to come in.

If you have one of these special children, you may have noticed that things happen around your house. No, I’m not talking about the normal things in a child filled home. I’m talking about unusual things. Ghostly things.  Things that go bump in the night.

Unseen beings like autistic children. There is no escaping that fact. Because they process information and see the world differently, autistic children are more likely to see spirit activity. They often witness it way before anyone else in the home. They are more sensitive to such things, and they cannot lie. So when they look at the ceiling and react as if someone is talking to them, then you know you are dealing with truth. They really are seeing and hearing something. Naturally, you shouldn’t assume it is a ghost when such a thing happens. You must always consider the possibility of hallucination. Medications or mental illness certainly can have that effect. However, when others see and hear the same things, then you have to consider ghostly origins.

Take Melissa for example. Melissa is a single mom to 12 year old autistic Daniel. From the time he was little, Daniel would look up at the ceiling and react to some invisible being.  As he got older, Daniel would draw pictures of an old man in a cowboy hat and say things like ‘he here.’  He’d point to the picture, then at the ceiling. With time, Melissa became worried about her son’s mental health and took him to a neurologist who found nothing wrong but referred Daniel to a psychiatrist. Though Daniel showed no other signs of psychosis other than seemingly seeing something in the home, the psychiatrist said Daniel was psychotic. This was a real blow, and Melissa was devastated.

Yet, Daniel wasn’t the only family member to see the old cowboy. Even though Melissa hadn’t seen him, her mother had. And Daniel’s nine year old brother had seen and heard the man as well. It wasn’t until a neighbor saw the cowboy that Melissa began to believe there was more at work than a psychosis.

Living in Texas, it wasn’t a stretch that you might see an apparition of a cowboy. And Melissa began asking questions about the area where her family lived. She never did find out if anyone had died on the property, but after asking around, she found  there were other people in the neighborhood who had had strange things happening in their homes too. They talked about things moving on their own. Doors slamming when the windows were closed. Melissa is convinced that her family has contact with the paranormal. She is very angry that her son was labeled as psychotic when he clearly was not.  Since coming to terms with it, the activity has lessened.

Another case involved Billie and her husband Ray. Billie and Ray were at their wit’s end when their autistic daughter claimed to see people who weren’t there. Naturally they were terrified of bringing her to a mental health professional for fear of having their daughter hit with a label.  They took their concerns to their primary doctor who told them that it likely wasn’t schizophrenia and that they should not fear seeing a psychologist. Reluctantly they took Elle to the psychologist. Thankfully, this professional was not the type to jump to conclusions and didn’t find evidence of schizophrenia or psychosis. She did say that Elle was very imaginative and it was likely the product of an overactive imagination. Elle was given a clean bill of health, but the family was confused.  Elle really believed what she saw.  

Maybe it was their apartment, they thought. Maybe being there was too noisy. There was constant traffic and construction. Their lease was coming due anyway, so they decided to move. A change of scenery could help, they thought. But it seems that the spirit wanted to hitch a ride along with them.

 Elle didn’t let up in her behavior after the move, and neither did the spirit. In fact, now it wasn’t only Elle who experienced the vision of the Asian man. Billie began dreaming of him. Her husband Ray had the feeling of being touched when he was in bed. What was going on? Billie had a friend who knew someone who was psychic. She asked if the psychic could help, and the psychic agreed to do remote viewing of the home. Without telling the woman anything, Billie was shocked when the psychic talked about an Asian man who had been killed in a robbery. She said the man was named Ron and had followed Elle home when he saw her. She said the man meant no harm. He simply wanted to be seen and heard. The psychic told Billie that if she spoke to Ron and told him that he was scaring them that he would go away. Reluctantly, Billie took an afternoon when everyone was out of the home and had a ‘talk’ with Ron. She told him he was scaring them and that they wanted him to leave. Billie reported that she heard a loud bang after she told Ron to leave. Was it the neighbors? She wasn’t sure. However, after her ‘talk,’ the activity in the home decreased. Though Ron didn’t leave, he did tone it down, enough that the family could deal with him being there.

Many, many people with Autistic children seem to experience the paranormal. If you have had this happen, then you should know you are not alone. It is not unusual. But this can add so much stress to an already stressful situation. How can a family cope with strange happenings on top of dealing with a special child? First and foremost, if you have this happening, take a deep breath before doing anything. Don’t jump to conclusions.  If your child seems to be interacting with something that you cannot see, don’t automatically assume that it is paranormal. Always look for a physical or psychological cause for any unusual behavior. Check with doctors and check medicines. Always take care of your child’s physical and mental health.

At the same time, if you have ruled out other options and more than one person in your home is having strange experiences, you may want to consider the possibility that you have ghosts. This doesn’t have to be scary for you because you are in charge of your house. If you have an unwanted guest, tell him to leave. If you invited a friend over and he brought an obnoxious guest, then you would tell the guest to leave. Spirits are no different. If someone is unwelcome, then tell them. You are in control.

Finally, look at it this way. Once you realize that there is a spirit world, you can relax knowing that there is more than this life. This should bring you comfort, not fear. There are so many wonders in this world, and we will never know everything. Spirits are real. There are honest to goodness hauntings. Some may scare you, while others are helpful and comforting. Just know that your child is more special than you even knew! And if you are one of the parents living with a child who is different from others, please understand that you are special too. You must have a wonderful heart to have been given the chance to have a unique child.
