You Will Need
- Electrical appliances
- Baby powder
- Baking sheet
- Potato chip bags
- Wind chimes
- EMF detector (optional)
- Tape recorder (optional)
Check the appliances
Check whether your appliances frequently turn off and on. This goes for your lights and television, too. It's thought that paranormal energy can drain the energy when it passes an electrical source.
Watch for strange occurrences
Watch out for unexplained occurrences in your home: items being moved from one spot to another, doors opening and closing, or strange noises and voices. These are all signs that you may have an uninvited visitor.
Test your theory
Sprinkle baby powder on a baking sheet and place it in the area where you suspect paranormal activity is taking place. Leave it alone, and check back to see if there are changes in the powder.
Measure electromagnetic activity
Use a compass to detect electromagnetic activity. Hold it near the paranormal occurrence. If the compass points a direction other than north, you may have found your haunter.
Listen to the ghost
Listen to the paranormal activity by placing potato chip bags around the house, or suspending a bell to a string and hanging it near the activity. Wind chimes will also do the trick.
Ask the dog
Pay close attention to areas of your home your pet focuses on. Household pets are thought to be an excellent source of paranormal detection. No matter which method you use, if you find paranormal activity, you'll have an answer for those mysterious occurrences.
