These days, there are a number of support networks available to anyone needing help after experiencing a traumatic event. What is accessible to those whose situation are beyond the norm, such as encounters with paranormal phenomenon? Where can one turn to for aid after an alien abduction, assaulted by a ghost or seeing a glimpse of the afterlife? Even tough few in number, there are groups and networks with services to help individuals with their encounters with the unknown. Information about these organizations can be found on the Internet for an example on blogs like Abnormal Realm. This week’s posting features the paranormal investigation team Haunt Investigators of Michigan.
Haunt Investigators was founded on October 14, 2012 and is located in Dearborn Michigan. In exchanging emails with one of the founders Marc O., the paranormal group was formed in Salem Massachusetts where they also conducted investigations. The team is made of lifelong friends with a passion and interest of the unknown. Several members of Haunted Investigators had encounters with the paranormal and with their friends formed the group to seek out answers to those experiences along with finding the truth of what waits in afterlife.
In this paranormal group, everyone shares in the responsibilities such as research, knowledge of equipment and collection of evidence. Haunt Investigator consists of eight members that are all lifelong friends. Marc O. and Mark W. are founders of the group, Yolanda O, Caty K., Ray K, Christ K. and Ed K. are investigators and Katalin R is P.R. And photography. Together they search for answers towards understanding the paranormal.
Haunt Investigators of Michigan goals as mentioned off their website “is to investigate and document and all paranormal activity, using visual and auditory recording devices while maintaining a professional attitude and manner and an open, but objective mind.” Their services are free of charge with no fees for any investigations conducted. Each case is treated with promise of professionalism and confidentiality.
In most cases of contacting any paranormal group for assistance there are procedures followed prior to an investigation, With Haunt Investigators, the founders will arrange a meeting at a location of the contact’s choice, ie coffee shop. There the contact would be introduced to the team followed by a discussion of the situation to learn more such as history of the location and past/current occupants. Later on the investigation is planned out to decide who works with who, what techniques to use and what piece of equipment the member will be working with. One piece of important detail they shared was to make sure all batteries are new and/or charged.
In emailing Marc, one of the founders, what advice could Haunt Investigators give to those staring their own paranormal investigation. He shared with “don’t trespass, get permission. Never go alone. Let others know where your going and with who. If something don’t feel right, leave. If forming a group…get to know their personal interest, where the work, live, why are they interested in this from.” Now for anyone needing help on dealing with a paranormal experience the advice given is “don’t be afraid to reach out to paranormal groups, that is what we do. There are many teams out there that are looking to help others.”
