Paranormal Is Normal~Introduction

I Ain't Afraid Of No Ghosts!

Well, that’s the first step to becoming a paranormal investigator. If you are afraid of the paranormal you should either read everything you can on the subject and learn as much as you can, or pursue a different profession. The same would be true if you were a veterinarian and dogs intimate you; or a steel worker if you’re afraid of heights. We all enjoy doing things that allow us to feel comfortable. If you are like me and have always pursued the question “why,” then you probably feel comfortable researching the paranormal.

I have always been puzzled by why there is a fear of the paranormal. In the case of spirits and ghosts, they are merely the energy residue of a person who has passed on to another dimension. If you didn’t fear the person while they were alive, why in the world would you fear them now that they are dead and no longer have the ability to hurt you? This would especially be true in the case of seeing a relative who had passed. The only way a spirit can harm you (if they wanted to) is to scare you… and if you aren’t frightened by them, they can’t hurt you. Have you EVER heard an evening newscast where the anchor reported that someone was murdered by a spirit? A drunk guy with a gun—many times, but a cereal killer that is a disembodied spirit—never. So where is the fear coming from?

One could blame a childhood incident, a past life experience, or the “Hollywood Hype” that adheres to the notion that they will sell more movies the more outrageous they make the paranormal look. The natural human fear of the unknown is more likely the case. We tend to fear what we don’t understand. In many cases, this is a good thing. Our fear of jumping out of airplane could prevent us from doing so before we learn how to do it properly. Once a person learns about aerodynamics and how a parachute works, jumping out of airplanes and flying through the air like a bird can be quite enjoyable (so I’ve been told).

The best way to alleviate any fear is to learn as much as you can about what you fear . . . “The more you know, the less you fear!” I’m not going to tell you that there has never been a time when encountering a ghost image or a spirit hasn’t unnerved me, but I can honestly say that I have never run from any investigation in terror of what I have discovered. I guess I’ve always been too fascinated by the discovery to be fearful of it. (Also because I don’t have a weekly television show with a director telling me that acting like I’m afraid brings in more viewers.)

Being a sensitive, I have had my own personal experiences with the paranormal, and have heard about thousands of paranormal experiences from others. Each person who tells me their story swears that it’s true. Why would so many make up outlandish stories that leave themselves open for ridicule, if they weren’t telling the truth? They wouldn’t. The truth is so often much stranger than any story anyone could make up.

I have written several books and send out a monthly Paranormal Musings Newsletter that deal with many different topics that are presently considered “paranormal.” My goal is to alleviate the fear and to bring the reader to the point of fascination. Once you learn more you will probably come to the same conclusion as I have – the Paranormal is normal… we just don’t know everything we need to know yet. I am delighted to be of help with your quest.

Illumination is everything!
