This will be updated over time. We just want to get out some basic information to help you get things started.


First lets just admit that opinions are like armpits, everyone has a couple and they usually stink. This is especially true when it comes to paranormal activity. The web is full of armchair ghost hunters who are experts on everything. We follow the teachings of the Catholic Church and the Catechisms. We won't delve into all that entails here. If you are interested Catholic beliefs and traditions a simple Google search will bring up mounds of resources. Instead lets just breakdown some simple to understand advice:


  • Not everything is paranormal. Human emotions take over the moment bumps and knocks give the atmosphere of a haunting. On the other hand by the time someone admits that there is a problem it has usually been happening for a while. Most often several years.
  • If you think you are dealing with a haunt start a journal. Write down anything that happens. Date, time, who was there BEFORE DURING AND AFTER. What was the mood like in the home/place? What was you're mood/health like at the time of the event? We are looking for patterns in the most unlikely places. Do not try to find the patterns yourself. You will be to biased and it needs to be looked at objectively. 
  • Psychics can and very often are tricked. Even the good ones. 
  • DO NOT TRY TO MAKE CONTACT WITH ANY GHOST. This WILL make a haunt more active. Let a professional do it.
  • If you are needing protection right now and a priest is not available (always try to reach a priest):
    • ​Pray.
    • Denounce what ever is there, revoke any permissions given or perceived in the name of Christ. 
    • Holy Water is free at any Catholic Church for anyone. Use it around the bed, doors, if you feel a presence sprinkle it in the direction, what every you feel like.
    • Salt does help. Preferably blessed salt. Sprinkle a little across the door (above or at the threshold), around the bed, etc.
    • Yes smudging can help, but it can also inflame the entity so be prepared. Other than sage you can use lilac, lavender, and even frankincense.
  • NEVER challenge. Any demon is looking for an invitation. Even if it's your child. Most often a child is to young to give consent. They simply don't understand to be able to do it. Therefor they are not the target, you are. They will torment children to get to you.
  • Pray - cannot stress this enough. Prayers of protection and deliverance such as The Lords Prayer. 
  • Beware of alternative spirituality. We will not discriminate against peoples beliefs, but note that the goal for any demon is to swing you away from Christ. They will even provide the illusion of deliverance from someone practicing an alternative religion. If it gets you way from Christianity then they will do it.
  • Fighting among yourselves is common. If you can't calm the moment leave the property together. Talk it out and admit the influence. 
  • Demons do not need to feed. Instead they want to weaken you to the breaking point. They also take extreme enjoyment in your misery. You can equate it to why a house cat would kill a mouse or bird when it has a full food dish? It's simply in their nature.
  • If you are not sure what's going on try filming the active area or yourself sleeping. Simply quietly set up a camera to record. If the activity is all over set up the camera to catch something going by. Usually towards the center or the house. Remember for each hour of recording it's 1.5 hours of review. 
  • Beware who you invite over to investigate. I hate to say this but the majority of ghost hunters offer to help, little have experience or knowledge of what to do after they have some sort of "evidence". They may attempt to bless the home, usually with sage, in a non-effective way. Note that it usually takes several blessings. Even an exorcism often needs repeated.
  • If you are wanting evidence this also usually takes multiple trips.
  • You will want to know "why me/us?" Be prepared to never have that answer. Just know that it transcends across social status, wealth and faiths. 
  • Also, and I know this will upset many, but Methodist, Orthodox, Lutheran, any apostolic religion can help. Any Christian religion can help.
