I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how the pieces fit in life. How the bad leads to good, and just as the good can lead to bad. As I was pondering this began to compare that thought to my life/journey down the paranormal. I look back when I started “hunting ghosts” with friends at Urban Legend locations, the fear and excitement of it all…. The path began long before those moments, but with out those moments i’m not here today sitting here telling you this. Without those moments I’d never investigated Gettysburg or met one of my best friends (Miss Information my friend and thankfully someone who keeps me on the right path, which is a challenge she needs to be given credit for that!) Being asked to be in a DVD after only having a handful of investigations under our belts and the location was the first official place we investigated as a group was. I’ve thought about the students at Delval College whom I spoke to 2 years running, is a experience that i’ll never forget or imagine i’d be doing. I’ve probably said all that all before, but it needs repeating – if not for the paranormal i’d not the person I am today which is better then the one who started this journey. I have the guts to admit that and by no means am I a king or know it all paranormal wise. We all learn everyday in the para field or hobby, but some of us don’t want to – that is a problem.
And as such i’m calling out and on every single paranormal group or organization or celebrity or fan or whatever in this field/hobby and to say this: “I am not always right, nor am I always wrong. I am human being with ideas, thoughts, believes and joy who does things my own way. And that’s OK ” I’m so tired of people fighting over what amounts to nothing positive in the long run, yes I’ve been guilty of that it happens, but lets be honest it doesn’t have to. To me the first step of many these different views on paranormal is to get them in the same room so to speak…. So lets gather and mingle a little… give it a try… who knows you may actually like the people you disagree with. Debates do not need to be personal, just thought provoking. Checking the ego’s at the door and we all win…
