Inappropriate reasons for delving into the Paranormal

Like the post about graveyards part of this is about being respectful of the dead. The main reason I’m writing about this topic is that theres something that disturbs me. Namely being the reasons some people have for delving into the paranormal head first. Please don’t misunderstand me on this, it makes me happy when people can be attracted into believing in the subject.  However it must be considered the reasons for why and if they’re getting into it for the right reasons.

Now to get along with the topic we’ll start with one I find to be one of two inappropriate reasons. The first being people of any age group trying to make contact or doing a “ghost hunt” for a cheap thrill. Hugely disrespectful to any spirits they can come into contact with as well as just insulting to the subject in general to my own opinion. If they later become more respectful believers and reasearchers later then no one can really complain. My point though is that one should never assume the spirits are there for just a quick tick off the bucket list. They might be dead but even they hate it when their time is wasted.

Secondly, because a loved one has passed. For this one I have a little more sympathy than the above. Death being apart of life and us all losing someone near and dear is understandable. The problem with this reason however is when a relative seeks to regain contact with the deceased. For anyone that’s seen the movie Casper, that gets my point across. In the movie Dr. Hardy uprooted his life and daughter searching the country for his deceased wife, Amelia. At the end of it he does eventually get to see her again but only after having been killed himself ( and brought back to life ). She explains to him why he never found her was that she had already crossed over. She had married a wonderful man and had a child with him from that had had a full life she therefore no reason to stay. For anyone that has lost a loved one I have to ask, did they have a full life? If so, like Amelia, they’d have no reason to stay. Now the former will have more respect than the first since love and respect go hand in hand. For most those are what we feel when we’d think of the deceased. It must be accepted that they’ve probably moved on though and the search is in vain. Another problem with it in searching for the loved one in question someone else doing a mock up of them can come in their place.

Now there could be other inapproppriate reasons for diving into the paranormal but the above, again, are the top two that I hear about. Ultimately though it is up to the reader to fully decide if they want to get into the subject at hand. This has only been presented so that if anyone some how files into one of the above they might rethink it just a little. Perhaps with the extra peice of input they might either be more respectful at first or safe gaurd themselves depending on the ones they meet.

With all of the above said this post will need further editing in the future. This post is far from perfect and could use some input from anyone reading it later.

December Nonsensical post and apology

Goodness gracious that was a rather large blank spot in the blog posts. Firstly I’d like to apologize for that since nothing more than my own apathetic nature is responsible for that. Secondly here we are off to face the “end of the world”. I’m debating doing a count down post segment for it and really fill out this month to make up for last months lack of text.

Before I get to those though I do have a couple of posts I’ll get queued up to go in the next few days. One will be on “dark” spirits and the next on deciding if the paranormal is right for one to delve into. What I mean by those will be better explained in the coming days while I wrack my brain for more writing content.

This short post will hopefully be one of the many I intend to put up this month. Now if everyone can excuse me I need to be up in the morning for breakfast at Golden Corral in the morning.

Nonsensical post take two!

This post is mainly to inform anyone that happens to follow my lil’ blip on the internet that I will not be doing a post for Halloween. Somehow there’s something sacrilegious about a paranormal blog not doing a post about Halloween….

Anyway as stated I won’t do anything for it, at least here. I’m dressing up as a gypsy with some mix and match stuff from my closet and going to watch “Orca” with my cousin. Which reminds me I should go check the newest Shlocktober if it’s out. Before i lose my train of thought any further, from Mr.Byers I have another topic namely the *goes back to read comments* Solway Spaceman. It’s about a “space man” that appeared mostly. I’ll dig into that further later.

Now my problem is I’ve semi run out of things to type about. Well more like the top of my brain is empty and I can’t get the false bottom out of it. If anyone has a topic they’d like typed up I’m more than open to suggestions. Nothing on the MIB though since I’m a paranoid skit. Excluding my skimpy references to them that is.

Now I leave everyone with one of my doodles because I can and because I have nothing else better to fill this otherwise picture-less void of a post with.  I bid everyone a happy and safe Halloween, any kids close enough to the coast carry wind proof umbrellas with you!
