The following are a list of questions you can ask during your EVP or Ghost Box session. This is a general idea of what to ask on a ghost hunt. I'd also like to add in that it's important to ask questions based on the history of the place you're investigating. Anything related to the history of the place would definitely get a spirit's attention if they had some kind of strong emotional connection to the place whether it's positive or negative. For example, a place that is abandoned (or perhaps the place is still open) could have been special place to someone that was in their previous life. The spirit of an actor could still be at a theater where he once performed. Then there's the much darker things like somebody had been killed in the area and they didn't know it happened or they aren't willing to accept that their lives ended the way it did. It could also be the result that a case wasn't solved properly.

This is why ghost hunting is starting to be a special field of things to come. There could be a crime that wasn't solved properly and a spirit continues to be where they are because the truth has not been told. Then again, perhaps there is something else keeping them there. Always do has much research and find as much history as you can on a place that is said to be haunted. The more information you collect, the more of a purpose you're going to have on your investigation. Also, this is good because you can determine whether some of the claims are true or not. so let's take a look at ideas of what you can ask on your ghost hunt.

Questions to ask for your EVP or Spirit Box Session

Is there anyone here that would like to communicate with us?

How many spirits are here with us right now?

Do you know who we are?

Do you know why we’re here?

What is your name?

Can you tell us what happened to you?

Can you show us what you look like?

Is someone or something keeping you here?

Would you like my team and I to leave?

How old are you?

Where were you born?

Are you happy?

Do you rest here?

Are you male or female?

Are you alone?

Are you afraid of us?

How many of you are here?

Do you know what year it is?

Are you sad? Why?

Are you angry? Why?

Is there any way my group and I can help?

Do you want closure?

Do you have anything to tell us?

Are you afraid of moving on?

Was this place important to you?

Are you trying to contact anyone in particular?

What is the last thing you remember in your previous life?

Have you attempted to communicate with anyone else?

Also, it's important to say good bye after you are done with your session to make sure you avoid any spirit attachments. That way, you're closing the door. Now as far as recorders go, I think anything from Olympus or sony will do. Both make great recorders. For ghost box's, the SB7 Spirit Box is hot on the paranormal market. Most people feel it's a little expensive, so you can also go to Radio Shack and get a portable radio for cheaper. It doesn't have an option of sweeping through radio frequencies, so you have to do the "Radio Shack Hack." There's many videos on youtube showing you how to do this. On another note, that's all for now. Happy hunting!

Do you think an EVP is the best form of evidence for Ghost Hunting?
