Ghost Hunting 101 - You Can Hunt Ghosts Too!!

Written by Gloria Young

During each lecture I do, people ask me if I can explain in simple terms how to hunt ghosts. Following each question, I chuckle and tell them that it isn't as hard as it seems, in fact, anyone can do it. What does it take to be a ghost hunter? Let me tell you exactly what you might need to be a ghost hunter. As time goes on, you may wish to increase your arsenal of items to become more proficient.

There is no special piece of equipment you need to be a ghost hunter. The list is simple and can be interchanged for anyone's personal needs.

Let me take this opportunity to explain what we believe ghosts to be. Ghost hunting is merely theory and conjecture. Throughrepparttar study of many different theories and scientific reports, we have derivedrepparttar 122236 possibility of where ghosts come from. The bodies we wear are merely a shell forrepparttar 122237 energy we hold inside. We came from energy before we were born and we will return to energy when we die. This is simple physics as well asrepparttar 122238 circle of life. Ghosts are made up of this energy. When we die, it is presumed that we have come from this energy and therefore, that is what we will return to. We dispose of this body that we have worn out so completely andrepparttar 122239 energy leaves it. Remember, ghosts are people too. They have died and become ghosts keepingrepparttar 122240 same attitudes, personalities and emotions they had when they were alive. So, if you were a crabby, grumpy person in life, you will be a crabby, grumpy person as a ghost. If you were a happy, peppy person in life, you will berepparttar 122241 same as a ghost.

That being said,repparttar 122242 first item on our list of necessities for ghost hunting is keeping an open mind. The best thing you can do for yourself every day besides showering and cleaning yourself up is to meditate. Meditation is good for your body, mind and soul. It opens you up to what surrounds us every day. It allows your mind to breathe and to think. You are able to completely free yourself from allrepparttar 122243 stress and repetitive tasks you must undertake each day. Meditation is something I suggest doing daily. This is a great start for a ghost hunter. Keep an open mind and with it you will be able to feel, hear and possibly, see ghosts. While doing that be sure to keep an open mind torepparttar 122244 possibility that ghosts do exist. You want to be sure to keeprepparttar 122245 positive feelings and energy going. They will feel more welcome and you will feel better as well.

Next, have a flashlight. It doesn't matter where you choose to do your ghost hunting, a flashlight is imperative. Night time isrepparttar 122246 best time for ghost hunting and you need to see where you are going. If you decide to enter a cemetery at night, besides getting permission first, you want to make sure you are not falling intorepparttar 122247 open grave that is to be used for someone inrepparttar 122248 future. You don't want to be tripping over sticks, logs, rocks or anything else and you don't want to twist your ankle in a smaller hole merely because you didn't see it. If you want to keep yourself in a bit more secrecy, you can get a flashlight with a red lens. This limitsrepparttar 122249 light but still allows you to be able to see where you are going.

You will want to have a companion. Never, ever, EVER go anywhere by yourself. If something happens to you, no one will know where you are going. It is a good idea to tell someone, anyone where you will be going forrepparttar 122250 night, then take a companion with you. If you fall and hurt yourself, who will go for help? Who will be able to help you? A companion not only can validate and authenticate anything that happens to you but might also save your life.

With that companion, bring a cell phone and make sure you have service. Sometimes, even though you might have a good cellular plan, you won't get service in certain areas. Make sure you haverepparttar 122251 phone for those times you may find yourself lost or in trouble. Carry it somewhere that it won't fall out of your pocket or be destroyed if you fall and can be easily reached.

Also, take a whistle. If you are two women, please take a whistle. Although you may be in a secluded spot, having a whistle just may help you in times of necessity.

Take a camera. Take any camera. There should be no particular camera you take with you. It can be a still camera, videocamera, disposable camera, 35 mm camera. Be sure you know how to use it, take extra film and be sure to take at least two extra sets of batteries. When dealing with ghosts, sometimes they may needrepparttar 122252 energy from your camera orrepparttar 122253 batteries and you may find they drain quickly. It's not that they are bad batteries unless you have had them in your home for two years or so. Ghosts sometimes need energy to produce an outcome and this is one place where they may deriverepparttar 122254 energy from.

Oneness and Diversity

Written by John Cali

Oneness and Diversity John Cali & Chief Joseph

As many of you know, I live in Wyoming inrepparttar northwest part ofrepparttar 122235 United States. Wyoming isrepparttar 122236 home of Dick Cheney,repparttar 122237 Vice President ofrepparttar 122238 US. Dick could berepparttar 122239 next president in a heartbeat, orrepparttar 122240 lack of one.

Most of Wyoming today is generally a conservative cowboy state. A place whererepparttar 122241 early American frontier values of freedom and independence live on. It’s a state where whoever is running onrepparttar 122242 Republican ticket for president is a surefire winner.

And yet it’s a state of great diversity, in its people and its landscape. Inrepparttar 122243 last election for governor, Dave Freudenthal, a Democrat, wonrepparttar 122244 office.

Dick and Lynne Cheney’s daughter, Mary, along with her parents, has publicly acknowledged she is gay.

Wyoming is a place where people of diverse and differing opinions and lifestyles can coexist peacefully. Wyoming people, while usually steadfast in their beliefs and values, are generally willing to allow others of different beliefs and lifestyles to live peacefully.

There certainly are exceptions to that. People are people, and sometimes they have less than peaceful differences with each other. A shocking and horrible example of that wasrepparttar 122245 brutal October 1998 murder in Laramie of Matthew Shepard, a gentle young man who happened to be gay.

But that isrepparttar 122246 exception in this place that wasrepparttar 122247 first ofrepparttar 122248 United States to give its womenrepparttar 122249 right to vote, in 1869. In 1925, Wyoming’s Nellie Ross becamerepparttar 122250 United States’ first elected woman governor. The legendary frontiersman, Buffalo Bill Cody, who foundedrepparttar 122251 town I live in, was an early and outspoken advocate of women’s rights and justice for Native Americans.

Wyoming is justly known asrepparttar 122252 “Equality State.” In many ways, it’s a perfect place to live, at least for folks like me who love peace, quiet, friendly people, big blue skies, and vast wide-open spaces. It’s a place that knows how to embrace all, those who agree, and those who disagree. And to somehow acceptrepparttar 122253 sameness andrepparttar 122254 diversity, and live in peace.

A magnificent example, I think, forrepparttar 122255 rest ofrepparttar 122256 world. Especially for America, now so bitterly divided after a bitter presidential election and its equally bitter aftermath. It’s time to healrepparttar 122257 wounds and work together. And to realize in our diversity, we are also one.

In this newsletter we don’t often re-publish past newsletters. But we’re going to do it this week. Many of you are new to us and probably haven’t seen this old information anyway.

Joseph, a long time ago, said this:

“You came to this planet at this time to experience diversity, not oneness. And in that diversity you will all find joy, once you allowrepparttar 122258 diversity to be okay. Once you allow yourself, and all others, to be okay just exactly where you all are right now.”

My response to Joseph’s comment:

“Joseph was not saying we, as a human race, are not one. We are, in fact, one with all of life, with all that is. But within that oneness, there is diversity. And that is as it should be. Sameness is notrepparttar 122259 same thing as oneness. Even withinrepparttar 122260 oneness of nature, there is always diversity. No two snowflakes are identical. Each is unique and special, one of a kind. And yet all are snowflakes.”

Joseph continued:

“. . . you live in a Universe so vast you cannot even begin to get your arms around it, if you will, with your human minds. And yet each of you, individually and in human form, have allrepparttar 122261 vastness, power, and gloryrepparttar 122262 entire Universe does. Each of you is a mini-universe, so to speak. A mini-universe with allrepparttar 122263 energy ofrepparttar 122264 larger Universe. Each of you are worlds, universes unto yourselves.
