Generally Accepted Signs of Paranormal Activity

 

 
Common Phenomena

  • Unexplained noises - footsteps; knocks, banging, rapping; scratching sounds; sounds of something being dropped. Sometimes these noises can be subtle and other times they can be quite loud.

  • Doors, cabinets and cupboards opening and closing - most often, these phenomena are not seen directly. Sometimes furniture, like kitchen chairs, are perceived to have been moved. Very rarely will the client actually witness the phenomenon taking place.

  • Lights turning off and on - likewise, these events are seldom seen actually occurring, but the lights are switched on or off when the client knows they were not left that way. This can also happen with TVs, radios and other electrically powered items.

  • Items disappearing and reappearing - the experience of not being able to find a regularly used item - say, your set of car keys - which you believe you placed in a spot you routinely place them. Some time later, the keys are found - in exactly the place you normally put them. Sometimes they are not returned for days or even weeks, but when they are, it's in an obvious place that could not have been missed by even a casual search.

  • Unexplained shadows - the sighting of fleeting shapes and shadows, usually seen out of the corner of the eye. Many times, the shadows have vaguely human forms, while other times they are less distinguishable or smaller.

  • Strange animal behavior - a dog, cat or other pet behaves strangely. Dogs may bark at something unseen, cower without apparent reason or refuse to enter a room they normally do. Cats may seem to be "watching" something cross a room. Animals have sharper senses than humans, and many researchers think their psychic abilities might be more finely tuned also.

  • Feelings of being watched - this is not an uncommon feeling and can be attributed to many things, but it could have a paranormal source if the feeling consistently occurs in a particular part of the house at a particular time.

 

Stranger things can happen such as:

  • Feelings of being touched - the feeling of being watched is one thing, and actually feeling like you are being touched is quite another. Some people feel something brush past them, something touching their hair or "a hand" on the shoulder. Some feel a gentle poke, push or nudge.

  • Cries and whispers - on occasion, muffled voices, whispering and crying can be heard. Sometimes it's music from some unknown source. People hear their names being said.

  • Cold or hot spots - cold spots are classic haunting symptoms, but any instance of a noticeable variance in temperature without a discernible cause could be evidence.

  • Unexplained smells - the distinct fragrance of a perfume or cologne that you do not have in your house. This phenomenon comes and goes without any apparent cause and may accompany other phenomena, such as shadows, voices or psychokinetic phenomena.

  • Physical assault - scratches, slaps and hard shoves. This kind of personal assault is extremely rare, but obviously highly disturbing.

  • Apparitions - physical manifestation of a spirit or entity. These phenomena are very rare and can take many forms: human-shaped mists or forming mists of some indistinguishable shape; transparent human forms that disappear quickly; and most rarely, human forms that look as real and solid as any living person, but that disappear into a room or even while being viewed.
