How alien abductions make people sick during and after the experience

By Deborah S. Kauflin

It probably won’t surprise anyone to hear that those who have been abducted by aliens experience a number of physical problems when they come into contact with ET’s. Almost every part of the abduction experience can produce a sickening feeling in humans.

Abductees talk about feeling as if being on a roller coaster when first coming into contact with UFO and/or alien beings. It is a nausea feeling, like the stomach is doing flip flops. This feeling is usually temporary and goes away once the experience is under way.

Some experiencers talk about feeling a tingling sensation all over their bodies when ET’s are near. It is almost like an electrical sensation on the skin. Think about when you get a light shock or if something touches you and sends tingles all over you. That’s what abductees feel. This suggests that aliens can impact our neurological systems just by being close to us. Whether they do it on purpose or not is unclear.

Another interesting sick feeling that abductees have is difficulty breathing. It is as if the air is very thick. For this reason, many abductees have coughing fits AFTER their experiences. It is as if their lungs and throats were irritated.

Along the same lines, some abductees recall being made to breathe a liquid which was very stressful and hard to do. Eventually they were able to do it, but it caused them great anxiety and worry. The memories of this bizarre situation are usually spotty. They can remember part of this experience, but not all. They talk about blacking out during parts of it because it is so upsetting. After having lived through this, abductees will have issues with scratchy throats and coughing.

When it comes to hearing, abductees often talk about a low-level humming sound right before they are taken. It is not uncommon for these people to then have issues with their ears afterward. Pain in the ears. Ear infections. All kinds of ear problems come up after contact. Some even develop tinnitus, a terrible illness that causing ringing in the ears and more.

Then there are some abductees who talk about having trouble when they are removed (initially taken) or when the craft moves once they are on it. In those situations, abductees feel dizzy, like things are spinning. This settles down after a while. But it is clear that ET’s seem to be able to handle situations that upset our vestibular systems. Some suggest that abductees are traveling through dimensions, and that is what causes the dizziness.

There are so many abductees who are interesting to talk to because their experiences are literally out of this world. What is most compelling is that over and over, abductees tell the same or very similar tales. More people are coming forward to talk about what has happened to them. What they find is that they are not alone. Others out there have gone through what you have gone through. If you have anything like this happen to you, don’t worry. There are people just like you. I’ve spoken with very famous people and professionals who have had it happen to them too. Don’t keep it bottled up. Be sure to get help if you are traumatized by your experiences. Contact me at deborahkauflin   @ gmail.com if you would like to talk about this. I try to get back to everyone but sometimes it takes a while due to my schedule.

Paranormal Activity and Cancer

Copyright Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

Now this the real scary part of the paranormal. If you are drawn to ghosts, poltergeists, aliens, Bigfoot and other supernatural spooks, then you need to listen up because there is a real danger in hunting these things. Honestly you put yourself in all kinds of jeopardy when you seek out these fascinating entities. You are in more peril than you may know. One of the worst threats that you may face but not know about is radiation exposure.

There are several risks involved when you entangle yourself in paranormal phenomena. These include physical manifestations such as scratches, burns, and other injures caused by supernatural entities. And yes, such things do happen. No really, they do occur. People get hurt from these energies. For those out there who think this is all fun and games and that paranormal harm is not real, you simply do not know what you are talking about.

Environmental factors at haunted locations present real problems. These dangers consist of things like asbestos, toxic mold, gases, and other environmental hazards that you might not even think about when embarking on your ghost hunts. Old buildings can have a lot of poisonous materials in them. When you think about heading out to some notoriously haunted place, you likely wouldn’t even think of such risks. However, they are there, and ghost hunters have become very ill from being in these environments. They develop lung, heart, and other health problems after spending time in these places. So be aware of this if you are heading to a location and protect yourself.

People who live in haunted homes should also be alerted to the fact that they are likely being exposed to some type of environmental problem. Whether they have high levels of electromagnetic fields around them which can affect their bodies, or if there is toxic mold, CO2 gases, there is danger. If you live in a ‘haunted’ place, you should get your property checked for these things. People who live in homes that have lots of strange happenings often suffer multiple illnesses. It would wise in that situation to get the environment checked to make sure there is not an environmental factor that is making you sick.

But a hidden danger that most people do think about is radiation. Yes, you read that right. People who are in settings that have a great deal of paranormal activity often have high levels of radiation around them, either from the ghostly or alien appearances or simply from the home in general.

Geiger counters show spikes of radiation when paranormal manifestations are present. Background radiation does not go that high, so it would not explain the rapid increases when supernatural entities appear. Radiation is either present or being created from the beings, the environment, or the people present. At the current time, we don’t know which is causing the phenomena.

This is a real danger and I warn those who do this regularly to take precautions when dealing with alien ‘contact’ or ghostly/poltergeist manifestations. Well known paranormal researchers have been either diagnosed with cancer or asked where they were subjected to high levels of radiation. Doctors actually have asked ghost hunters if they have jobs that put them into situations where they are exposed to radiation. And no, other than paranormal work, they do not.

There is more to this field than people realize. Many think it is made up or fake, but it is all too real. People get hurt and sick. Sadly, the medical field has continually let these people down. Too often, those exposed to the environmental hazards have been blown off by doctors who didn’t listen and frankly didn’t care. As a result, these people got sicker and sicker when they could have been helped.

My advice to you is that if you are in these haunted locations and suffer from symptoms, get checked out. And if the doctor blows you off (and they likely will), go to another doctor and another until you find someone who will listen to you. This will be difficult because the medical field in the US has mostly become a money game where doctors only see patients as dollar signs. If you don’t have an easy to diagnose illness, they will kick you out of their offices and act like you are crazy.  It is so sad that these victims have to be re-victimized by the medical field when they could have been helped. You wouldn’t believe the stories of how doctors have treated these patients. It would make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. These individuals who live in haunted homes and become sick are not believed by anyone, and this takes a heavy toll on their psyches.

If you are involved in this field and have been to or go to ghostly locations, be very careful and protect yourself as much as you can. This field really is in its infancy, so we don’t know the long-term risks associated with it. As it becomes more acceptable to study, more scientists will become involved and our knowledge of these things will skyrocket. For the ghost hunters, alien hunters, and Bigfoot hunters out there, you are truly honest to goodness pioneers who deserve a pat on the back. I think this field will eventually teach us a lot about our planet, new power sources, abilities of our own minds, and health in general. Stay tuned as we learn more.

Sex can trigger spirit activity

By Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

It may sound strange, but having great sex can open spirit doors. Yes, I know, that sounds weird, but it really is true. Think about when you have hot sex. When you are passionate, you produce energy. Your mind relaxes, and you can almost fall into a trance. Basically passion excites the mind and body. Your sexual state of mind and energy combine like dynamite which can blast open a door to the other side.

Those who live in haunted locations will experience this, though they may be reluctant to talk about it. They are often embarrassed about what happened and feel shy that someone was watching them in their intimate moments. So witnesses are less likely to be open about what happened.

However, you don’t have to live in a haunted location to experience this. There are many people who have told me that paranormal activity BEGAN when they were having sex. Though they were fully into what they were doing, they couldn’t help but get distracted when they saw shadows moving around them as if watching. They describe the shadows as being blacker than the darkness, and the shadows had form. Usually there are more than one shadow beings when this happens. What scared some of the witnesses was when the shadow creatures bent down to get close. One woman said ‘it was like they were leaning in to get a better look.’ She said the ‘thing was a pervert.’

People also report objects moving around the room while they are making love, things that couldn’t have been knocked around by their sexual activity. Whispers were common too. It was as if they were on display in some gallery, and entities were talking about it. These were isolated locations. There were no other people around, and no radio or other devices were on. Furthermore, a few told me that lights would flash on and off when this happened. They would hear thumping sounds out of nowhere when they stopped. It was like something was banging on the ceiling or walls. And no, there were no people in rooms above them having fun of their own!

Two men spoke about seeing what looked like an alien when they were having sex. It appeared in the corner of the room, and they both saw it. They swear that it had big black eyes and a large head, and it seemed to ‘walk through the wall.’  They are convinced that the entity was an extraterrestrial. In fact, there are many who say that the ‘spirits’ watching sexual behavior are aliens who are observing us on Earth.

On the other hand, several witnesses reported seeing human figures that they could see through. Those people swear that the entities were ghosts. The truth is that we don’t know exactly WHAT is watching when people are intimate. But there is SOMETHING that is attracted by human passion.

An interesting point was that those who said that they saw alien creatures did not continue to experience paranormal activity after the sighting. Yet those who saw black shadows or see-through humans DID continue to experience paranormal activity. This was a clear distinction and points to multiple types of entities.

For those who did continue to have paranormal activity, the ‘hauntings’ tended to be negative. This makes sense because one would think that decent, good entities would respect privacy and not watch intimate encounters. Think of the peeping tom who stalks neighborhoods at night. These aren’t stellar citizens. They are predators. So this raises questions about the safety of those who experience paranormal encounters while having sex. That is, do those beings who come to watch sexual encounters have bad intentions?

Another theory is that the people themselves CREATE the phenomena. That is, the individuals present are somehow interacting with their environments and causing the poltergeist activity.

One thing is for sure. The mentality of being sexually excited coupled with the energy produced by sexual behavior opens some kind of portal or draws/creates entities. It seems to act like a magnet to them. If you have had such an encounter, please let me know. I keep witness information confidential.

Alien Abductions Involving the Deaf

By Deborah S. Kauflin, Ph.D.

The term alien abduction either scares people or makes them laugh. It seems there is little reaction in between. However, as more and more paranormal shows make headway into popular culture, the notion of aliens visiting our planet has become more accepted.

Lots of people are interested in extraterrestrials. Who wouldn’t be? Intelligent life is something we all seek. It certainly is not out of the realm of possibility to believe that aliens exist somewhere.

There are many people who believe that aliens are already here and have been for a very long time. I’ve spoken to a large number of people who believe that they have experienced E.T. contact. After doing that, I decided to look a specific groups of people who have been through this. As a criminal profiler, I profiled serial killers for 20 years. After retiring, I’ve been working in the paranormal field looking for answers to the biggest questions out there.

So I went looking for people who had specific traits to see if the alien abduction experience is different for certain groups of people. In this paper, I am writing about alien abductions involving the deaf. Since they cannot hear, it was interesting to get a feel for their perceptions of their experiences.

Though most routine E.T. contact begins with either a high pitched noise or a clicking sound, the deaf could not hear such noises. Instead, they felt a buzzing or electrical type charge on their bodies. Many talked about seeing a light right before or at the same time they felt this vibrating or buzzing sensation. The light was described as being either white or bluish. And almost every person who experienced this said that when the light appeared, they got goosebumps.

One of the abductees was not fully deaf and used a hearing aid. He said that after sitting on his couch, feeling the vibrations in his stomach, he then found himself on very large table in a big room. He could not remember how he got there. There were 3 small grey colored creatures with large heads standing over him. The entities had taken his hearing aid out and seemed fascinated with it. The abductee stated that they almost seemed to fight over which one got to hold the hearing aid. These three beings were smaller entities who immediately acted subservient to a larger entity which came into the room after a few minutes. The larger being was very tall and had what the abductee described as a bug type head. It scared him so much that he passed out. When he woke up, it was the next morning, and he was on his couch. His hearing aid was not working right. It produced a lot of static which it had never done before.

Likewise, other abductees recalled being on a table, while others talked about walking through a dark hallway. The consistent factor was the entities. The descriptions tend to point to the grey aliens. A few talked about human looking beings who were extraordinarily beautiful or handsome. The role of the ones who resembled humans was to comfort the abductees. Though this was the purpose, it did not work well. The abductees said there was something ‘off’ or ‘different’ about these humanoids. Something was not quite right. Whatever happened, the entities were ALWAYS present. The abductees were never alone. They felt watched constantly.

It is interesting to point out that though this set of abductees are deaf, they could understand the entities speaking in their minds. It was a telepathy, and the people knew exactly what was being communicated. One entity asked why one female abductee could not hear like other humans and wanted to know why human doctors would not fix this problem. The only thing this woman could manage to think of was her family. She was so frightened that she could not provide any answers to these ‘monsters’ in front of her. Over and over, she pictured her family and prayed. She felt pain on her leg, but she did not see if an entity touched her or if some kind of instrument touched her. Because she was so scared, she tried not to look at them. Still, she would peek at them every now and then. She said that the beings appeared frustrated with her because she was almost paralyzed with fear and tried not to look at them. I asked how she knew they were frustrated, and she said that she felt their anger. In her own words: “you know when someone’s mad at you, like when you’re talking to someone who is mad.” In her description, she relayed how there was a feeling of contempt coming from the beings. In short, she said she felt hated by these creatures.

Several other abductees spoke of an alien putting its long finger in their ears. Not enough to hurt them, but enough to scare them. And scare them it did.

One of the grey looking entities told an abductee that they (aliens) have trouble understanding humans. To them, humans are unpredictable and have too much diversity which is not true of their kind (at least the ones involved in this case). In fact, from the descriptions, these beings appear very uniform in appearance, thought, and behavior. The Borg from Star Trek comes to mind since it appears as if when one alien learns something, they all learn it (like through some connected telepathy).

After the abduction experiences, all felt an impact to their lives. The majority suffered problems. Friends and family did not believe them, and many developed illnesses right afterward. A very small group looked at the experiences as transformative, and they changed their lives for the better. They became very spiritual and felt a peace they had never known. So the abductees do not have the same after effects. One wonders why some seem to get hurt while others almost seem blessed by the experience.

To those who have not read a lot about this, these stories may seem far-fetched. Scientists may say that neurological disorders can produce thought problems and hallucinations, and such a medical issue could explain the bizarre accounts. Yet, there have been people who have claimed to have been abducted who have gone through a battery of medical tests which have found nothing out of the ordinary except a suspicion of radiation exposure in one case.

Other skeptics will say these people are either mentally ill or lying. While it is certainly true that there is a large number of people who are not quite right in the head, I have reviewed these cases and most are professional working people who are educated and have no monetary or seemingly other reason to come forward with these accounts. They are not seeking money or fame. They simply want answers as to what happened to them.

SOMETHING is going on. Whether one chooses to believe that the events are real or fake, the experiences do happen to the people who go through them. We need more research to find out what really is occurring. Because if aliens truly are here, we’ve got a lot more to worry about than bickering between skeptics versus believers.

The E.T. Stare: How Aliens control people with their eyes

By Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

Do you believe in aliens? How hard is it to think that another species has visited our planet? The possibilities are endless if you think about it. Many say that they have had some type of contact with extraterrestrials. The reported contacts involve everything from the dreaded abductions to quite pleasant, loving experiences. Everyone from farmers in the fields to judges out for a Sunday drive have reported the phenomenon. And stories come in from around the planet.

Of course we have to consider all explanations when listening to these accounts. Are those who claim to go through these experiences simply lying, or are they mentally ill? Is this nothing more than a case of mistaken identity, where people have night terrors and nightmares which they wrongly believe actually happened to them? Maybe it is a hallucination produced by physical illness, medication side effects, or massive stress. There is also research which shows that weak EMF fields can cause people to hallucinate (Persinger, 2016). Perhaps these experiencers had been exposed to weak EMF fields which acted on their brains. Those are certainly plausible explanations which should always be considered when someone comes forth with such tales.

But what if is something else? What if entities are visiting us and making contact? It is a worthy topic to study, no matter what the naysayers claim. If aliens are here, then we must investigate. We have a duty to look into topic. After all, who wants to be in the dark about creatures from other worlds, creatures who are watching and perhaps intervening in our lives? Putting our heads in the sand won’t make them go away.

Those who have come forward with accounts of alien abductions have been laughed at and even ruined professionally and financially. The cynics drip with hate as they attack witnesses for simply telling their stories. However science involves investigation and questioning. If people make up their minds before even glancing at a subject, progress will never be made. After all, how can you learn if your mind is closed?

We owe it to contactees to listen because if even a bit of their stories is real, then we would be putting ourselves in peril by ignoring them. By listening and investigating, we can learn not only about the human psyche, but potentially open up whole new worlds.

Let’s face it, if aliens are here, they have abilities that are way beyond our own. This by itself is scary. Yet they aren’t killing all of us. We aren’t slaves to some reptilian E.T. overlords. If they had the means to kill us and wanted to do so, then we would be dead. So either they aren’t here, they don’t have the resources to kill us, or they don’t want to. That doesn’t mean that they do not do present a threat to us. There are plenty of stories involving violent abductions which resemble something out of a horror movie. Yet, overall, we haven’t been overrun by little grey men with ray guns.

I can tell you that the alien contact stories I hear are very similar, whether abductees come from Australia, Africa, The Netherlands, or the U.S.A. There is definitely a pattern to how these cases unfold. Abductees tell tales of seeing lights in the sky or in their homes (red or blue). After seeing the lights or a ball of light, creatures appear. The descriptions vary from greys, reptilians, little furry creatures, tall whitish humanoids, blue eyed beings, Asian looking entities, balls of light, and more. *As a side note, based on the people I have talked to, if these things are real, I believe that E.T.’s can make you see what they want you to see.

And here is where the mind to mind contact comes in. From what abductees have told me and other researchers have found, there is a great deal of telepathy and mind connection. That is, experiencers will just know what the E.T.’s are communicating without ‘hearing’ it. Then there is the alien stare. A lot of abductees speak of having a strange looking creature stare into their eyes to get information as well as to control the abductees. They recall being incapacitated by the alien staring into their eyes. Further, the stare seems to act like a knock out drug. When abductees resist, an entity inevitably comes close and locks eyes with the human. This produces immobility and then grogginess, if not sleep.

As I’ve written before, it may be that extraterrestrials know how to activate the pineal gland to produce melatonin and thus sleep. Clearly, they seem to be able to effect the human nervous system and have perfected a way to knock us out without landing a punch.

Along the same vein, abductees report having an alien stare into their eyes and absorbing information. People often refer to it as a mind scan. It like they can look into our minds through our eyes and see whatever we have seen. Wouldn’t that be an interesting skill to have?

Though this part is even harder to believe, some abductees report sexual behavior or touch during their abduction experiences. Aliens appear to be interested in human sexuality and reproduction. For that reason, abductees tell stories of E.T.’s touching them in a sexual manner in order to produce orgasm and/or collect sperm. When orgasm is reached, aliens will often rush over to stare into the human’s eyes. Does that suggest that E.T.’s ‘feel’ human emotions or body sensation when they gaze into people’s eyes? Do they stare into the eyes during a period of great pleasure in order to capture that pleasure for themselves or to somehow study the neurological process going on in the brain at that moment?

The very well- known and respected Derrel Sims has been studying aliens for decades, and he has come to the conclusion that E.T.’s see in infrared, ultra violet, and x-ray type vision. So when they stare in the eyes, they actually could be doing an x-ray on your brain!

I know all this sounds way too weird to believe. I totally understand that. Yet you have to remember that these stories come from around the world and often from multiple witnesses at once. While I certainly cannot rule out EMF and geomagnetic factors acting on the brain to produce hallucinations, I also cannot rule out the possibility that aliens have been here. The similarity of the abduction stories warrants our attention, whether you believe in extraterrestrials or not. Something is going on. Perhaps someday we will be able to put the puzzle together so we can understand more about ourselves as well as the E.T.’s who may very well be here.

If you have had an experience like this or it rings a bell, feel free to contact me. Your story can really help in researching this grand subject.   Email: deborahkauflin       @  gmail.com

When ghosts are nothing more than your own trauma

By Deborah Kauflin, Ph.D.

Many people believe their homes are haunted. In fact, they are downright convinced of it. Yet in a lot of cases, the ‘ghost’ is nothing more than a mixture of family trauma and negative life situations. What I mean by that is a large number of cases where homeowners believed they were haunted were actually not haunted at all. Well, they may have been haunted by a horrible life tragedy, but there was nothing paranormal going on.

You have to be careful if you think that you are being haunted. Because if you come to believe that there is a specter watching your every move, then you can become anxious, paranoid, and even frightened. I’ve worked with people who thought that they had ghosts in their homes. In reality, there was no ghost or demon. The things that they mistook for supernatural happenings were actually just everyday occurrences that were misinterpreted.

Life is hard. For some people, it is excruciating. Whether they go through a chronic painful illness which doctors seem unable to help, or they suffer from tragedy after tragedy, the trauma can be too much to handle. When this happens, the human mind searches for an explanation. Sometimes that leads them to the paranormal.

For example, Minnie was left by her cheating husband with four young children. Naturally the cheater skipped out of town and on alimony too. Minnie was overwhelmed. Then life hit her with a brick. She came down with all kinds of weird symptoms. Her eyes would go in and out of focus. She’d feel numb in her legs and arms. Sometimes, she had trouble walking. To the doctors she went, and the doctors failed her. They saw her as a middle aged woman who was malingering. In truth, she was suffering from early Multiple Sclerosis. It took several years before she found one competent doctor who was able to diagnose her.

In the meantime, Minnie had convinced herself that a bad spirit was haunting her home. The walls seemed to bang out of nowhere. Her wallet was never in the last place she left it. There was a cold spot in the dining room. Then there were those horrible dreams where something was chasing her. Because she was so stressed, every time one of these things would happen, she told her young children that an evil spirit was after them. It follows that the kids then began noticing every noise and bump, and they too, became convinced that a dark entity was stalking them.

When dinner was left in the stove too long, it was obviously the ghost. When Minnie tripped over the bathroom carpet, clearly it was the ghost. When the kids had nightmares, to them, it was a demon out to get them. Whatever goes wrong in the course of a normal day was attributed to the paranormal. And it made this family wild with fear.

They all ended up sleeping in the same room, taking turns trying to get rest so the ghost wouldn’t get them. The kids would go to school exhausted because, well, the demon had kept them up. At least in their mind it had. Their school work began to suffer, and Minnie simply collapsed. As sick as she was, she couldn’t go on and was absolutely convinced that the evil spirit had caused her divorce, her illness, and kids’ problems. Minnie’s behavior got bizarre as a result. She went so far as to run out of the bathroom with the trash when she was having her menstrual cycle. The reason? She felt if any blood was left in the house that it somehow ‘fed’ the demon. Minnie ended up having a priest come bless her home, she was so scared.

After this went on for almost a year, Minnie’s mother ended up taking the children and Minnie in. At first, every time they heard a snapping noise or bump, they would all jump with fear until Minnie’s mother reassured them that it was just the wind outside, the ice tray, or the refrigerator. It took several months of Minnie’s mother making great efforts to explain things and clam them down before they began to understand that they had not been haunted at all.

Still terrified of the whole thing, Minnie wanted her home (which had sat vacant for three months) to be tested by paranormal investigators. She wouldn’t believe her mom, but she would believe them. Investigators took a look at Minnie’s house and did several overnight stays. It didn’t take long to figure out that the bumps and bangs that the family had heard were the results of the pipes and the heating ducts moving and banging. The cold spot in the dining room? The window had been left open a tiny bit by accident. So chilly air was coming in at that spot. Minnie kept tripping on the bathroom carpet because one of the tiles underneath it had come loose. Where the tile was loose was the exact spot Minnie kept tripping on. And the nightmares were just that: nightmares. No more. No less.

Poor Minnie and her children had been so scared that they let fear override their common sense. If Minnie had investigated instead of jumping to conclusions, she and her children would not have lost a year to an unfounded terror. However, she had been horribly scarred from her divorce and disabling illness. It was too much.

After the investigation showed her that there was nothing in her home, she and the kids moved back in. With the window closed and tile fixed, there were no more cold spots or tripping accidents. The paranormal investigators had told her to have a plumber secure the pipes, which she did. Then the noises were no longer heard. Problems solved. Her son admitted to being the one who had been moving her wallet when he was sneaking dollars here and there. It was just one big mess.

Now don’t make the mistake of thinking that it is just females who have this issue. Unfortunately, there have been some scientists in the paranormal field who have painted women who have supernatural experiences as nutcases, and these scientists have done a great disservice to the field by using a broad brush. To these scientists, women who have paranormal experiences, especially poltergeist experiences, are hysterical personalities and attention seeking. While this may be true of some people (male and female) who are encountering paranormal happenings, it is certainly not true of all. This ghastly mischaracterization sets the field back. I’ve known women who have experienced actual poltergeist activity, witnessed by others, and these women are solid emotionally.

Both men and women can mistakenly come to believe that there is a ghost in their homes when nothing is there. I know of a man who became convinced that he had a demon in his house. Despite many different investigative groups over a period of years showing him that his demon consisted of his air compressor blowing, faulty wiring of his dishwasher, and raccoon families in his attic, he still walked away from the house and let it go into foreclosure. He had convinced himself that an evil spirit was after him, so to him, an evil spirit was after him.

The point is that you should never jump to the conclusion that your house is haunted. There are so many other things that it could be. Be especially careful when you suffer from illnesses or tragedies, because those things can impair your judgment. After all, if you have gone through horror after horror, it is easy to turn to the paranormal when looking for answers. People can mistakenly think that if doctors can’t help them or if several family and loved ones die in the same year, then maybe there is a dark entity making it happen. They look to the supernatural for answers because this world cannot provide them with the answers. Some illnesses are yet to be discovered. Doesn’t mean someone isn’t dealing with it right now. Doctors just don’t know what it is. And in some years, several people you love can just die. It is rare, but it does happen. Bad luck perhaps, but not bad spirit.

If you think you have a ghost in your house, then get it checked out. Have good investigators who will look at your heating/air system, pipes, windows, and other things to rule out something mundane. Whatever you do, don’t get scared when you don’t need to be. Life is too short.
