The scariest, darkest paranormal cases usually start out as a seemingly routine investigation; then, somewhere along the line, it becomes clear that something much more sinister is happening. But how do we know when the line to the dark side has been crossed? And what do we do about such cases? The first step in such situations to is identify what, exactly, is happening at the location.

Paranormal investigation, namely ghost hunting, is enjoying phenomenal and unprecedented growth. This is due to the global broadcast of paranormal reality TV, and this avocation is now popular around the world. But do these shows get it right?

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.

Also known as typtology, table tilting is the phenomenon that occurs when a spirit moves, shakes, or rattles a table as a sign of its presence. Also an early form of spirit communication, its first description is handed down to us by Ammianus Marcellinus in fourth-century Rome.

Over time, the “groove,” or ghost, will get weaker, and will eventually disappear entirely. However, hauntings can be recharged under the right circumstances, especially in any area where there is a great amount of energy transference.  If a sentimental object of the dead person is brought into the area, the apparitions can be recharged.
