Many people today are becoming keen on the paranormal world, and even more people are becoming aware of what paranormal activity actually is. Sometimes claims are made that aren’t investigated in order to determine whether or not you’re really experience paranormal activity. It may be hard for people and therefore signs should be looked for and paid attention to in the case on whether or not there’s a logical explanation for what you’re experiencing.
There are many factors that are involved that cause paranormal activity. Renovations, careless seances, violent deaths, evoking spirits with witchcraft or other dark magic, and a number of other things. When you find yourself in an environment with a history that could link to the paranormal, it’s important to get all the information you can, starting with the signs and symptoms.
Usually paranormal activity can begin with light whispers and other sounds. They can start out being inaudible, and then progress to what is known as Grade A (comprehensible) whispers and spoken words. At this point your name may be called or you’ll probably only hear light whispers coming from various areas of your home.
Sometimes creeks, bumps, and footsteps can accompany these sounds or they can be heard on their own. A skeptic may brush it off, thinking it’s only the house settling, or perhaps the noises may be caused by another member of the house, however, if these sounds are being heard more often than you’re supposed to, it’s best to observe, and look out for any rational explanations so you can further backup the possibility of a paranormal presence.
Items can also come up missing in the beginning. If you don’t carefully pay attention, you may assume you simply misplaced it and not realize something else may be going on until more items come up missing. If your instincts are telling you it’s something else, it’s best to pay attention.
When paranormal activity progresses from sounds, this is where you’ll begin to see weird things, such shadows, mists, and even full bodied apparitions. It’s best to keep a log book at this point and put into detail exactly what you’ve been hearing and seeing. Also write down the time of day or night this is occurring as well as details about what you’re experience. Details such as, what kind of apparition you are seeing; male or female, animal, a demonic being, a dark shadow etc.
If you have any pets, it’s not unusual for them to begin acting strange, as animals are known to be more sensitive than people when it comes to detecting the paranormal. Sometimes your pet can alert you to something that is there that only they can see. If you have a dog that begins to bark at an empty space or begin growling in the middle of the night when no one’s there, it’s best to assume something supernatural is going on. Keep all of these occurrences in your log book.
You may also begin to experience hot and cold spots throughout the house. This will indicate where paranormal activity can possibly happen the most. Sometimes the temperature in your home can fluctuate from hot to cold instantly. That is a clear sign of paranormal activity because something like that doesn’t just happen normally. Make sure this detail is written in your log book as well.
At this point, paranormal activity can become aggressive. You may get touched, shoved, held down, or even scratched, and experience odors. It could potentially be dangerous for you depending how you’re being touched so it’s best to contact a paranormal investigation team as well as do all the research that you can on that particular house and/or land you’re living on.
It’s also best to determine whether or not the hauntings are being caused by a human entity or an inhuman entity (demonic/angelic.) If you’re getting scratches of three down your back or side, that could indicate a demonic presence. It’s always best to be sure. Getting help is essential in this case.
You may even begin to experience unexplained illnesses. This could happen because a possession may be taking place, which means you are in danger and need help. Becoming withdrawn and a having your personality change is another sign as well as unusual emotions. During the night, it’s not unlikely that you can experience sleep paralysis, nightmares/night terrors, or have insomnia.
Most of the time there is a rational explanation for what may be going on. Sometimes, there is no explanation and that’s when you have to take action as soon as possible. Don’t wait. Otherwise things can spiral out of your control and end up being a very dangerous situation for you. Not every paranormal experience can lead to a dangerous situation, but why take the chance? Get all the facts, keep it logged, and get help.
