Opening the Door to Paranormal Phenomena
January 27, 2010
Last night, as always, I was glued to my television to watch Paranormal State at 10:00 P.M. In this case, it was believed that the client’s first daughter, who was eighteen, opened up the door to activity because of her past involvement with drugs and association with Satanism. In the end, since the girl was of Catholic faith, Father Bob Bailey baptized the 18-year-old, in hopes of it closing the door to activity.
This got me to thinking. As cool as a lot of people think the paranormal is, it is imperative to keep in mind that there are certain things that can open the door to paranormal activity–harmful or not.
Here are some things that can set activity in motion:
- Participating in seances
- Playing around with Ouija or spirit boards.
- Seeking out paranormal activity (such as trying to capture EVPs)
- Messing around with voodoo or Satanic rituals (especially if you don’t know what you’re doing
- Making pacts or “selling your soul” to the devil
As silly or crazy as some of these sound, I have heard cases of all of them in real life and on paranormal investigation programs.
There is also another situation I have questioned. I wanted to know if an avid interest and belief in the paranormal could open up the door to activity, even if one had never been haunted before. I looked around for an answer and finally got one from Justin Holstein of American Ghost Hunter. He told me that, yes, he believes, that could open up someone to being haunted. Apparently, it’s all about the state of mind you have. Therefore, if you believe it, it can happen. I thought more about it, and an episode of Paranormal State came to mind. It was the Hotel Conneaut episode, where supposed ghosts of a bride named Elizabeth, in her wedding gown, and a little boy haunted the building. I think that also, it was said that a butcher who was killed, also haunted the place. Research was done to see if any of the history matched up, and it did not. However, it seemed that the legends kept being passed down, and in turn, it seemed as if the stories and belief in them, created the paranormal phenomena, or put it in the minds of people that it was happening.
The point of the matter is, if you don’t want spirits hanging around your home or business, try to steer clear of participating in anything that could open up the door to activity. If you don’t mind it, just know how to be in control of your home or establishment. Protect yourself.
