As much as I gripe about movies and TV shows misrepresenting ghost hunting, they have freed us from one bit of fiction.
That is, we’re past believing that all ghosts appear as figures in white sheets.
Or that all ghosts appear, period and full stop.
In my decades of ghost hunting, I’ve often seen odd phenomena.
However, I rarely see apparitions… Not apparitions that look like real, live people, anyway.
Despite that, I still believe in ghostly phenomena, even when there’s no visible evidence.
For me, other forms of evidence are more than enough.
If you’re a new ghost hunter, decide what you’ll need to experience, to believe that ghostly encounters are real.
Then you’ll know what you’re looking for at haunted sites.
You’ll know when you’ve found it, or when it’s time to quit.
However, a far lower threshold might be encountering something odd but unexplained.
Is everything odd a ghost?
Personally, I have no doubt that spirits visit our world.
I’m absolutely certain that ghosts – or ghostly energy of people (and sometimes animals) from the past – exist. Some are more sensitive to their presence than others are.
Perhaps we pass them daily, in broad daylight, and don’t realize it.
(Are they really from the past? That’s a different topic, best for those – like me – who are intrigued by spirituality and how it aligns with quantum studies.)
Meanwhile, let’s not insist every weird anomaly is a ghost. (That may be a “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” issue.)
And let’s not hold such high standards for “what a ghost has to be,” that we don’t pursue curious anomalies that might be ghostly energy.
Understand what you’re looking for, because – in ghost hunting – you’re not likely to see an actual apparition.

What would you have to encounter or experience in ghost hunting, to feel as if your questions were answered?
And how many “hmm… that’s odd” observations are you willing to investigate, in case they’re important?
There’s always more to learn from ghost hunting, whether you’re a skeptic, a “true believer,” or somewhat in-between those extremes.
