My life is rife with spectral images... I have therefore resolved to come to a better understanding of what I am up against by contributing and searching for input on finding and communicating with 'ghosts'... who are they, what are they, why are they, how are they?  There are some amongst us who are predisposed to such abilities... others who learn the ways of approach and connection.... still others who are approached.  Of course, there are also those who are mentally ill.... how does one discern as to which camp one belongs?  What can be learned from group effort, dual effort, and singular effort to resolve these issues?
   I realize there are many types of information out there on the subject, but i am looking for a fresh approach, hence my dive into the Westate resource. I will as well endeavor to contribute what I perceive to be revelant, and useful information, hopefully with a twist of originality.

OK, so let's see... equipment for the not so predisposed empirical and objective ghost seeker... I'm guessing a compass might be in order... not that it matters which way you are going, really; what matters is the magnetic fluctuations... now if you should buy into this idea, i would suggest that you get one that glows in the dark.  In what other ways might a compass come in handy?  oh, yes... if the needle doesn't move at all once it's focused on an aberration in the field, one not necessarily oriented toward the magnetic north, but even that contingency might be considered.

Of course magnetic flux is not necessarily indicative of ghostly 'hot spots' and non-metallic metals might also work in some form or other; even wood can be attuned to the currents of the ghostly sphere that surrounds you.

OK,  so as far as as indicators of spectral activity goes, might i suggest the seeker revolve around these: metal, stone, wood, and bone.  Metal objects can be either magnetic or non-wize; stone can be any kind of rock, precious stone, or gem; there are many types of trees, shrubs, and brush to chooze your wood from and many shapes to carve thereon; which brings us to the bones... chicken leg maybe? how about a buzzard's wing?  Cavemen used shoulderblades, of all things.  The key to picking and choozing your indicators is simply that you have an affinity with those objects - it will, of course, be extra helpful if the hot spot has an affinity with your indicators as well.

If you do not have an affinity with the particular indicator that you wish to use it is easy to develop one... just keep the object with you as you envision its purpose, which in this instance would be to seek out ghosts.  How do the indicators work?  Not often, but sometimes, the object will get either heavier or lighter as you gain proximity with the source.  Not often, but sometimes, as you approach your objective, the indicator will become hotter or colder.  What should most likely happen with your indicator is that it should subliminally tip you off where to look, where to go, and where to stay and wait while you are in a search mode.  As I stated before, it is a great help if the indicator also has an established or a generated affinity with that which you seek. :cat:

In addition to wood, stone, bone, and metal, there is wine and water, fire and wax, bread and fabric, incense and glass. I hope to discuss each of these indicators in detail as the time goes by.  One other thing comes to mind as a ghostly indicator... black mirror.  Of course, if all else fails, there is always dog and kitty.

Hand-in-hand with the compass are dowsing instruments and pendulums as energy indicators, especially in regards to established and newly generated ley lines.  Dowsing, of course, is effective in locating water sources but can also be used to locate ghostly activity.  The contrary motion of a pendulum may be used in conjunction with the compass and the wishbone or L- shaped dowsing tools.  Dowsing indicators can be made out of many things but wood, bone, and copper seem to be the most favored.

Mmmm, dowsing-rods can be used at finding whatever you want to find...I sat in a car once with one, and asked it to point out toilets. Yes, I know, not sane..I´ve never been that, but if I hadn´t tried I wouldn´t have known it could be done.

Sounds sane to me, Jentzi - when ya gotta go, ya gotta go.... glad to hear the dowsing rod was of some help...

Dowsing has been used throughout history for finding water.  The results of a German government sponsored program to test and apply dowsing methods for finding water in arid regions were presented in the Journal of Scientific Exploration in 1995.  This was the most ambitious dowsing experiment ever undertaken, and achieved a 96% success rate by dowsers in Sri Lanka.  Based on previous geological experience in that area, a success rate of only 30-50% would have been expected from conventional methods.  

During the Vietnam war, U.S. marines were taught how to use a dowsing pendulum to locate the Viet Cong's tunnels and mines. Apparently the men in the field came to rely on dowsing methods  as it was far more accurate than the apparatus at their disposal.

The Chinese Army uses dowsing to scout terrain, locate enemy targets, and encampment sites.
Both the Czechoslovakian Army and the Canadian Army Engineers have permanent corps of dowsers.
USMC Camp Pendelton screens for dowsers.  It is reported that one out of five have dowsing ability.

Carl Ethelridge,Historic Preservationist and Cemetery Consultant from Cartersville, Georgia, often uses dowsing in his field work.  Carl will sometimes use his personally made copper dowsing rods to locate unmarked graves that have been hidden over time as the graves subside and the coffin deteriorates, causing the ground to sink.  The depressions are often filled in over time.  Once it's packed good and tight over the years, a probe rod won't penetrate it.

The use of dowsing in archaeology is becoming more widespread in Britain; in countries such as Russia it is taught in colleges at graduate and postgraduate levels.  Dowsing has brought new understanding to the relationship of the ancient energies of early buildings and megalithic features.

Sarah Harrison of the Ashville Paranormal Society, North Carolina, uses dowsing to communicate with Spirits of the Dead when she and her team travel around the U.S. investigating haunted sites.

In the 1950's, Verne Cameron developed the Camerom Aurameter, which incorporated five different devices, tens of thousands of which were used worldwide by dowsers.
The U.S. government denied him a passport due to the fact that he had demonstrated his prowess to the U.S. Navy, by map dowsing and successfully locating every submarine in the Navy's fleet.  He also located every Russian submarine throughout the world's oceans, resulting in the CIA determining that Cameron was a risk to national security, and he was forbidden to leave the country.

I have been "ghost hunting" for a while now. I am well known within the field of Parapsychology. I have been featured in a number of books, TV shows, newspaper articles, and even an independent film.

I can answer any question you may have on the subject matter. Also my website (which is grossly outdated) can be found at http://www.paranormalguy.com .

Also there is a webpage kinda like Myspace for people interested in  this field at http://www.iamhaunted.com .

My Myspace page has some stuff I habe written on the subject matter and can be found at http://www.myspace.com/dagulf
