Are you willing to sacrifice?

I hear people talk about being a Paranormal Investigator all of the time. Now I would like to talk about those who are already in groups throughout the country. Many do some long hours for their passion. They understand what it means to be there for others.

With that being said, how many of you out there are willing to give up most of your weekends? Then you will also have to give up a few nights of your coming week to review evidence. Very easy to say “I’m in”…”I would love to do that!” But when it comes to frequently giving up a good part of your personal time, it is not so easy. Trust me, I know!

When you make a commitment in this field to help others, you do so without prejudice and without selfishness also. Trust me when I tell you many times I am exhausted after working all week. Sometimes I am doing work around the house all day as I only get weekends to do it. About 2 hours before we are ready to leave, I would love nothing more than to say the heck with it, make up some excuse or just not show up. This happens a lot and in many groups I speak to. I can tell you Jenn & I took an oath to each other that we are either in or we are out. We either do this, and do it all the way or we step away from the field. It means sometimes every weekend or at least every other weekend sacrificing from things we would “like” to do. Time away from family. Time away from the recliner. Maybe going to the mall, or antique place. Maybe doing some of the hobbies we like to do together. But we are ALWAYS aware of why we are in this field. HELPING OTHERS!

HELPING OTHERS means no excuses. Unless you are sick and will risk the homeowners and other members health or there is an emergency in your family (real emergency) you grunt and go. You put your word out that you would help. You committed yourself to being there for others. You may not think so, but your presence is helping others deal with their problems. You do not pick and choose which investigations you wish to go to. You are available for all no matter how much of a drive it is!

Hey, it happens in every group (as I mentioned). Most paranormal groups have the same problem. But this is a warning to those thinking about becoming a member of a group…make the commitment…be all in or get out. Not joining because every once in a while is fun. If that is the case, go to a group that only goes now and then and investigates public buildings. Leave the serious investigations for the serious investigators. If not, you will find yourself removed from that group anyway so do not waste everyone’s time and money. If you are really not that into it, remove yourself from a group. It is OK….most groups only want members who are committed anyway.

So think hard before thinking I want to do this….I want to join a group….it is a real hard job being a true Paranormal Investigator!

I guess we have to thank Television especially Reality TV for bringing paranormal investigating into the common accepted practices of today's society. If you think about it, 15 years ago you'd expect to see a bunch of geeky people running around chasing ghosts or spirits around cemeteries. Even though it has been investigated and documented for centuries, everyday culture has just begun to accept the fact that there is something else going on we cannot explain. That the people experiencing this activity are not crazy. That we can be seeing shadows or hearing voices and experiencing out of the ordinary activity which cannot be explained. This is where Professional Paranormal Investigations comes in. PPI as we like to call it was started by paranormal investigators Jennifer & Steve Hodgson. Having conducted investigations with another group, they decided they wanted to bring the paranormal investigations to the next level. There are so many "Ghost Hunting" groups in every city, many of which come and go a year later. Some do it strictly for fun and the thrill of the hunt. Some mean well but do not take what they are doing very seriously. This bothered Jenn & Steve. If a homeowner or business owner is experiencing activity and are requesting assistance it should become an immediate priority. It is a priority to the person calling since they are experiencing activity and want answers...why should the investigative group not be 100% serious and professional in return? You can be assured that at PPI we WILL ALWAYS take your case seriously. We are available to assist you. We know that you are seeking answers. Well amazingly so are we. We take a different approach though to an investigation than most others. We have consulted numerous parapsychologists on what to look for and what we should be doing. We scientifically document everything we do. If we experience something, we immediately attempt to debunk what is happening. Sorry, 9 times out of 10 "orbs" are just dust. If an EVP is not clear and if not everyone hears the same thing clearly on first listen, then it is not an EVP. Maybe it is noise...maybe it is a voice, we do not discharge what we find, we just place it in the body of evidence. We use sensitives to assist us during investigations. Some of our investigators "may" be able to gather some additional information on the energies present. We use this information to see if our scientific evidence matches their findings. If it does, the evidence becomes much more credible from both perspectives. We try our best to help as many people as possible who are truly in need.
