Common Definitions

  1. Residual - are repeated playbacks of auditory, visual, smells, and other sensory phenomena that are attributed to a traumatic event, life altering event, or a routine event of a person or place, like an echo or a replay of past events but poses no harm to the residents. Example: every night at 4:00am the closet light will turn on and the bedroom smells of roses. These events have a spirit, ghost or entity that is not aware of the living world and most likely cannot be interacted with.

2. Intelligent - (classic haunting) is the opposite of a Residual Haunting; all is the same except the spirits, ghost or entities are aware of the living and very well can be interacted with. Example: capturing an answer to a question asked by an investigator during an EVP session. Can sometimes pose a nuisance to residents and could become harmful.  

 3. Poltergeist - comes from the German word noisy spirit.  In spiritism, certain phenomena, such as rapping, movement of furniture, and breaking of crockery, for which there is no apparent scientific explanation. Believers in spiritism interpret these phenomena, particularly common during séances, as evidence of the presence of supernatural spirits. This type of phenomena can become very dangerous, sometimes attaching itself to families following them where ever they go. Some believe that this phenomena is the work of devils, demons and even us.

 4. Attachment - when ghost hunting, investigating or visiting someone who lives in an alleged haunted house/ business sometimes spirits, ghost, enities can and will attach themselves to you. Attachment is said to be rare; however, there have been more cases of attachment reported over the past few years than ever before. Be aware this is a form of possession. Example: you return home after an investigation and a few hours/ days later you start to experience paranormal activity in your home or business which you never experienced in the past.     

 5. Possession - this happens when the spirit, ghost or entity takes complete control over an unwilling and unknowing individual, place, or thing. This of course being the most dangerous type of haunting.
