First off lets be honest, not one tool is 100% certified for ghost hunting/investigation, because as most of us know their is no governing body for the paranormal (well except for those we “chase” in the after life!). So with that out of the way…. Are EMF meter’s effective Tools??
Well the simple answer is what do you believe or subscribe to? Are spirits possibly made of or use ElectroMagnetic Field? Or do they not…. Well if they don’t use EMF, then yes EMF meter’s are useless, since I don’t personally believe this we’ll go with spirits are possibly made of or use ElectroMagnetic Field.
Flip side or non paranormal side we can use EMF Meter’s to find “hot spots” in a place that may be causing the issues reported. High EMF can cause in some people hallucinations, paranoia, headaches, etc. Which may be where all the reports of paranormal activity come from.Whether they are made of or use EMF is a whole debate in of itself! Magnetism can move objects, look at how rail guns work or Maglev (Train systems that use magnetic levitation to suspend, guide and propel vehicles from magnets rather than using mechanical methods, such as wheels, axles and bearings). So magnetism can move things. We can measure magnetic field strength, so if a spirit uses any form of magnetism we can measure it with an EMF Meter and “know” if they are with us on a case!
EMF Meter’s are useful on hunts/investigations for a multitude of reasons, they’ve become a stable of almost all paranormal enthusiasts tool kit. For some the very first big piece of tech they bought after a recorder and camera. Some EMF meter’s have more flaws then others, but for us you can read about them here in Paranormal 101 – EMF detectors our review of our EMF Meters!
