Today, June 20 2012, summer will be officially beginning in the Northern Hemisphere at 7:09 EDT. Therefore coming night is commonly referred to as the ‘Summer Solstice’; the moment spring turns into summer. And, purportedly, for paranormal enthusiasts, it’s second to Halloween as THE most ‘optimal’ night for ghosthunting!
In layman’s terms: the summer solstice is known as the shortest night-of-the-year by the world, right? But what we normally don’t go talking about is that it’s rumored to also be a powerful night spiritually & religiously. It’s a night when many believe the veil separating this realm and the ‘beyond’ is most thin — just as it happens on Halloween.
You do NOT have to be a seasoned or trained ‘ghosthunter’ to test it out. Just be sure where ever you are it’s a ‘controlled environment’, you feel safe, aren’t alone nor trespassing. Should you choose to take a SMALL group to a local cemetery to gather evidence, most do not mind if you’re quiet and respectful; however, in Indiana the law states cemeteries are close at dusk and open at dawn so a Trustee’s permission should be obtained (not a tough task as they’re quite nice and VERY informative people — easily located via the internet).
FOR SAFETY’S SAKE: try to do a quick run thru during the day to get a feel for the lay-of-the-land, never go ghost hunting alone, bring a cell phone, take flashlights, extra batteries, dress appropriately, and remember to be first skeptical and not easily convinced therefore spooked by staying open minded and brave! ;)
So, if you dare, I’d suggest you grab those digital voice recorders, digital video, & digital cameras out … whatever it is that ‘you’ do and when/if you capture anything either out of the ordinary or better yet increased activity (to help prove this ‘thin veil theory’). [you can voice record on almost every MP3, cell phone to possibly option an EVP* which, if you do so would make it ULTRA convenient for digital downloading afterward. Just remember, you should listen to each clip at least 3 times so tape in increments]
IF you obtain questionable data, there are pages & pages of sites on the internet whereas you can learn to know more about what you captured, how to convert it &/or modify it (for better appearance YET NEVER ALTER THE ORIGINAL).
Or, if you choose to stay at home and ‘do your thing’ be aware that if/when you DO capture ‘something’ that freaks you out … are you prepared to continue living there? (just sayin’)
To be BEST versed take a few moments today and search the internet about the summer solstice, how it affects the moon phase, solar flares, planet/stars alignment AND paranormal activity and deduce for yourself if you deem the time spent ‘hunting’ as worthy. A lot of para-groups have pages in this regard along with reasonings &/or evidence.
Either way … ENJOY THIS UPCOMING SUMMER SOLSTICE (Wed into Thurs) AND HERE’S TO HOPING WE DO GET A LOT OF DATA, UNUSUAL AMOUNTS, AS TO HELP BACK-UP THAT CLAIM ABOUT THAT THIN VEIL!!!
Hugs & happy hunting …
*: EVP stands for ‘Electronic Voice Phenomenon’ or ‘Etheric Voice Phenomena’ … or ‘a disembodied voice captured audibly on tape’. :)
