ATMOSPHERIC AND SOLAR INFLUENCES

HOW THEY AFFECT PARANORMAL INVESTIGATIONS

Is it possible that more paranormal activity occurs in times of severe weather or solar activity? There is belief among the paranormal community that it’s not only possible but it is more probable. We will look at four occurrences that seem to supply these spirits with a source of energy necessary to induce paranormal activity. From a physiological perspective, humans, plants, and animals possess a certain element of electrical energy at their molecular core. Is it too far-fetched to say that when we pass from this life, we carry some of that energy with us? Remember the definition of energy: Energy can neither be created nor destroyed and it is used to perform work.

During your investigations you have probably experienced new battery depletion coupled with various forms of equipment failure. This is not uncommon when there is paranormal activity present. These entities are thought to draw upon any available electrical source for their power allowing them to move objects, manifest, make noises and communicate with you through voice recordings. We are going to look at four possible avenues that these spirits can use to enhance their energy patterns.

Solar Flares and Thunderstorms:

It is theorized that during unsettled weather and solar activity, the Earths naturally occurring electromagnetic field that surrounds our planet is energized with a surplus energy. These entities are thought to be able to tap into this rich resource, thus, increasing paranormal activity during these events.

SOLAR FLARES

Solar flares occur when magnetic field lines on the sun get tangled up into knots, building potential energy until they reach a tipping point. Then that energy is converted into heat, light and the motion of charged particles.

There are five classifications on Solar X-rays and three for the Geomagnetic Field:

SOLAR X-RAYS

Normal, Active, X Class Flare, Mega Flare, & M Class Flare

GEOMAGNETIC FIELD

Quiet, Unsettled, and Storm

Anything above normal range for solar flares can and will affect the Earth’s geomagnetic field. You can capture some great evidence if you are lucky enough to be investigating during these times especially if it is a mega flare or geomagnetic storm. It will produce an abundant amount of ions that will cover the surface of the Earth creating a lot of energy that spirits will be able to draw from. You can go to http://www.n3kl.org/sun/index.html to learn more about this phenomenon.

THUNDERSTORMS:

This is another occurrence that will charge the air with both positive and negative ions that will increase your chances to capture paranormal activity.

It is also theorized that the peak of a thunderstorm creates a higher vibrational frequency that enhances the entities ability as they will be able to draw on the raw power that seems to electrify the air.

MOON PHASES AND HOW IT EFFECTS THE PARANORMAL:

For centuries people have associated the full moon with the romantic at heart as well as supernatural activity. The moon’s phases can be a very favorable time for an investigation to occur.

The dark moon (or new moon) has always been associated with the supernatural. A dark moon rises at the same time as the sun and because of this you can’t see the moon.

However, the best time to experiencing paranormal phenomena is two to three days before or after a full moon or new moon. The phases or lunar cycles of the Moon are discribed below.

New Moon – The Moon is not visible (except during a solar eclipse).  This means that the Sun, Earth, and Moon are almost in a straight line, with the Moon in between the Sun and the Earth.  The Moon that we see looks very dark.

Waxing Crescent – This Moon can be seen after the New Moon, but before the First Quarter Moon.  The crescent will grow larger and larger every day, until the Moon looks like the First Quarter Moon.

First Quarter – The right half of the Moon appears lighted and the left side of the Moon appears dark.  During the time between the New Moon and the First Quarter Moon, the part of the Moon that appears lighted gets larger and larger every day, and will continue to grow until the Full Moon.

Waxing Gibbous – The Moon appears to be more than one-half full. This Moon can be seen after the First Quarter Moon, but before the Full Moon.

Full Moon – The Moon’s illuminated side is facing the Earth. The lighted side of the Moon faces the Earth.  This means that the Earth, Sun, and Moon are nearly in a straight line, with the Earth in the middle.  The Moon that we see is very bright from the sunlight reflecting off it.

Waning Gibbous – The Moon appears to be more than one-half but not fully illuminated by direct sunlight. This Moon can be seen after the Full Moon, but before the Last Quarter Moon.

Last Quarter – One-half of it appears to be illuminated by direct sunlight. The part of the Moon that is illuminated is decreasing. The left half of the Moon appears lighted, and the right side of the Moon appears dark.

Waning Crescent – The Moon appears to be partly but less than one-half illuminated by direct sunlight. The fraction of the Moon’s disk that is illuminated is decreasing. This Moon can be seen after the Last Quarter Moon and before the New Moon.

The above mentioned phases can affect Earth’s geomagnetic field. The nearer the moon gets when it’s full the more it can affect it. Paranormal activity appears to be more active due to the increase and flux of the geomagnetic field along with the gravitational force that it produces when in the full or dark phase. You can visit the following website to learn more about these phases: http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/astronomy/moon/Phases.shtml

THE SOLSTICE AND EQUINOX PERIODS:

 

It is believed that equinoxes and solstices throughout history are very conducive to supernatural occurrences. Therefore, they present an opportunity for paranormal investigators to capture evidence & activity. This reason is steeped in the folklore that these times are important from a supernatural perspective relative to the “Conscious Shift & Awakening”. The “Conscious Shift & Awakening” is a teaser and will be explored in further articles.

WINTER:

 The winter solstice falls on December 21st and is the shortest day of the year. The winter solstice is caused by the sun taking a lower and lower path in the sky and eventually reaching its lowest point on December 21st. This allows a longer period of darkness on that date because the sun sets sooner. Furthermore, It is theorized that paranormal activity increases on the date of the winter solstice.

SPRING & SUMMER:

On the brighter side, the Spring & Summer solstice occurs around June 21st and allows a longer period of daylight.

An equinox happens each year at two specific moments in time when there is a location on the Earth’s equator where the center of the Sun can be observed to be vertically overhead. These are the only two days of the year when the days and the nights are each 12 hours long.

FALL:

Fall Equinox occurs around September 21st and Spring Equinox around March 21st.

So if you really want a fool proof plan to catch ghostly activity McLennan County Paranormal recommends four easy steps:

1)    You need to ghost hunt when the Earth is experiencing a Mega Flare

2)    At the beginning of an Equinox or Solstice

3)    When there is  a full Moon

4)    And during a raging Super Cell Thunderstorm.

Easier said than done right? A little humor never hurt the Paranormal Investigator. We have to keep our sanity somehow right?

Emotional bonds within a family structure can be especially strong if they are nurtured and maintained properly. This is especially true with when comparing and contrasting the many different ethnic cultures, values, and traditions that make up our physical plane here on earth. When emotional connections are abruptly severed due to a death: is it possible the grieving process could be a mechanism to sense or feel their presence after departure? The death of a loved one is a major life experience that could alter your per caption of reality; therefore, sending you into emotional devastation and a dark depression. It is important to understand that some spirits may feed on these emotions, thus deceiving you into believing they are something they’re not.

When an emotional bond is broken between two people by virtue of one passing on: could their sense of reality be altered such to allow their mind to cope with this major life event? Would this major life event allow an individual to embrace the image of the deceased in a way that convinces them can sense their presence? When an emotional bond is broken, the hurt could be so deep that an individual may cause the manifestation of a loved one’s image. Is it possible, by pure will power, that the human brain could obstruct a spirit from ascending from this plane of existence to the next?

It is said that we only use 10 percent of our mind’s capability. That leaves 90 percent of it untapped and uncharted. Emotional bonds are such a powerful connection; therefore, it could be powerful enough to be responsible for some of the alleged sightings that have occurred. However, where does that leave the rest of the sightings? Emotional bonds are capable of moving the greatest objects such as cars or concrete.

The bereaved may find comfort in the fact the soul never dies. However, may remain on this plane of existence for the purpose of comforting those left behind. The love and emotional bond they once had could also be a catalyst as to why they remain. It is possible they stay on this plane to say farewell in their own way by giving signs to the ones left behind. In addition, a spirit may remain close to the possessions they had when living; therefore, keeping them from properly ascending. They could go as far as attaching themselves to a particular piece they were extremely fond of. There are many reasons that spirits do not pass on. In my professional opinion, the biggest reason is the fear of the unknown. This in itself is a powerful emotion both for the living and dead.

Introduction

For some, “goose bumps”, “chills”, or the “hair raising on the back of your neck” are something that occurs when it is cold outside or they have a fever. However, and for those who have been on paranormal investigations, “goose bumps” or “chills” are more than being cold. It is a homeostatic mechanism of internal imbalance that sends internal messages and elevates the senses:  an internal and external cue or warning so to speak. Have you ever thought about why you are feeling “goose bumps” or “chills” despite the fact of being cold or on a paranormal investigation? As a paranormal investigator, I believe the reason lies internally & externally relative to our physiological characteristics. This article will briefly explain how external elements influence our internal reactions with respect to feeling and seeing “goose bumps”, “chills”, or “hair raising on the back of your neck”.

What Lies Beneath

Initially, everything in this world is looked at with a superficial frame of mind. However, it takes a lot more than superficial thinking to fully understand something or someone. It doesn’t matter if you are buying a car, a house, meeting someone for the first time, buying a book, drawing, playing music, building a business, or even conducting a paranormal investigation. You absolutely cannot understand anything previously mentioned without looking deeper into its makeup. To fully understand something or someone you should fully understand the sum of all its parts. With that being said lets jump into the scientific/physiological theory behind the “goose bumps” & “chills”.

The Structure of the Human Organism

This section will briefly outline how the human organism is structured and is as follows:

1)      Subatomic Particles

2)      Atomic Particles ***(Contain, Neutron, Proton’s, & Electrons)***

3)      Molecules

4)      Macromolecules

5)      Organelles

6)      Cells

7)      Tissues

8)      Organ

9)      Organ System

10)   Complex Organism (Human Being)

The second item in the above mentioned list is very important as you will see later in this article.

Receptor Types & Sensory Impulses

In my professional opinion, three of the five Receptor Types are used during a paranormal investigation. Thy include Pain Receptors, Thermoreceptors, and Photoreceptors. The Pain Receptors deal with stimuli such as exposure to excess mechanical, electrical, thermal, or chemical energy. Thermoreceptors deal with temperature change. Lastly, Photoreceptors deal with light energy of sufficient intensity.

Sensory receptors can be ends of neurons or other types of cells close to them. When stimulation changes their membrane potentials (receptor potentials), a graded electric current is generated which reflects the intensity of stimulation. Lastly, peripheral nerves transmit sensory impulses to the central nervous system where they are interpreted in the brain. One important key factor to remember is that these impulses are electrical in nature.

What is Energy

By scientific definition the explanation of energy is the capacity to change something; it is the ability to do work. Since we recognize energy for what it can do; subsequently, we understand common forms of energy to be heat, light, sound, electrical energy, mechanical energy, and chemical energy. Furthermore, energy can neither be created nor destroyed; however, it can change from one form to another.

What exactly is EMF

EMF is the abbreviated version of Electromagnetic Fields. An EMF is a field of force that consists of both electric and magnetic components, resulting from the motion of an electric charge and containing a definite amount of electromagnetic energy. It is believed that spirits can raise and manipulate the level of EMF’s, therefore increasing their ability to manifest, move objects, or speak.

Goose Bumps and Chills

At the superficial surface of the skin most of us have shafts of hair. Even without the presence of hair “goose bumps” and “chills” still occur because the process does not change. Below the Epidermis lies the Dermis portion of the skin. Within the Dermis you have the hair follicle and a bundle of smooth muscle cells called the Arrector pili muscle which is connected to the follicle. In addition, there are several nerve cell processes which relay messages about sensory impulses and incoming stimuli. The Arrector pili muscle is situated on the hair follicle so that a short hair in the follicle stands on end when the muscle contracts. Nerve impulses, which are electrical in nature, cause the contraction of the muscles. This in turn sends signals to our central nervous system and our brain process the information, resulting in “goose bumps” or “chills”.

The Sum of All Its Parts

When a spirit tries to manifest itself, it manipulates the electromagnetic field around it. It uses that energy which is changed from one form to another to perform work. Our internal homeostatic mechanism is triggered by internal & external receptors that detect that change, thus resulting in electrical nerve impulses that cause muscles to contract, hair to stand on end, and goose bumps to rise. The human was created from subatomic particles, which then formed atomic particles consisting of protons, a neutron, and electrons. This is why the human organism can detect and is sensitive to changes in an electrical field. You are not crazy if you are feeling sensations around you that might be paranormal. It is crazy to totally discount what god has created, how we were created, and how our internal system operates relative to our external environment.
