Dealing With Grief & Ghost Hunting
This is a re-post of an article moved from our main website to our blog:
The death of a loved one is never easy. Death is a natural part of life, but the question of what happens after we die can still be a mystery for many. If you have ever wondered what happens after we die, you are not alone. Sometimes when people have experienced the death of a loved one, these questions become the focus of their thoughts.
During our time investigating the paranormal we have had many people contact us to investigate their home, and upon interviewing them we discover that they have recently lost a loved one. Investigations where the client (s) have experienced a recent death in their life are very sensitive cases but are fairly common. We understand the desire to want to know that a loved one is safe and well or that the loved one is still around in the afterlife. We have been contacted in hopes that we can provide some closure or give a final message from beyond the grave.
While it is our ambition to find solid proof of life beyond death, dealing with a newly grieving client can be very difficult. If you have experienced a loss and are seeking a paranormal group to help you, first here are some questions you should ask yourself before contacting a group:
We don't want to discourage anyone from contacting a group to investigate their home if they feel it is right for them, we just recommend that you give yourself the time to deal with loss before doing so. You should be emotionally prepared to handle any type of evidence given to you or lack thereof before initiating contact with a group. Being in a heightened emotional state is not the best time to deal with strangers in your home attempting to record audio, video, and asking many questions especially pertaining to death. Inviting a paranormal group to your home to find closure with a very recent death may not be in the best interest for you, your family or the paranormal investigators. Give yourself some time to begin healing from your loss, and then consider your options in dealing with any paranormal activity you may be experiencing.
Each person must deal with grief in their own way and there really is no right or wrong way to deal with it. Here are some related information to dealing with grief:
