Hello and welcome to my fist blog. I’ll be using this space to express my own views on all things paranormal and also to give a personal account of the investigations that I undertake with NGI.
First of all I would describe myself as a skeptical believer, by which I mean that while I am convinced that paranormal events do occur, I do not jump straight to paranormal conclusions when the ‘strange stuff‘ happens. Saying that I believe that people do actually see ghosts and experience other paranormal phenomena doesn’t mean that I am convinced that the spirits of our dear departed are causing the effect. At the moment I don’t know what is to blame, and this is one of the reasons for joining NGI as I want to find out for myself.
I am of the opinion that we should utilise both scientific means and also spiritual means in our quest for answers. I am not one to take the words of mediums at face value (indeed I have yet to be totally convinced by any medium), but in my experience they have provided some compelling ‘evidence’ in the past that warrants further investigation. I would not say that using purely scientific methods is necessarily a good thing either, as there is a chance that we may indeed be dealing with the spiritual. My philosophy is that you should use anything you have available to collect data. As long as you keep a logical head on your shoulders you shouldn’t go wrong.
