Investing in the Work of Ghost Hunting
Date: 2012-10-29   By: Deonna Kelli Sayed
Public culture has long had an appetite for the supernatural, resulting in numerous television shows and a growing number of ghost hunters. But there is a flip side to this: this type of avocation carries real personal and transformative meaning for the many who choose to partake. It really is a spiritual and intellectual privilege to "ghost hunt." Deonna Kelli Sayed, paranormal investigator and author of So You Want to Hunt Ghosts? and Paranormal Obsession, discusses why ghost hunting has benefits reaching far beyond discovering the supernatural.

But, interestingly, ghosts are a universally-known phenomena that have been witnessed throughout the world. With Halloween approaching fast—and with it, increased attention to the spiritual world—I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the more interesting, yet lesser known, types of ghosts from all around the world. Rich Newman, ghost hunter and author of The Ghost Hunter's Field Guide and the forthcoming Ghost Hunting for Beginners, details the nuances of ghost history and lore from across the globe.

In Irish tradition, there is a wonderful story of bile, the ancient tree. It grows by the side of a sacred well, and acorns, nuts, and apples spring from its branches.
