Why Are People Drawn to the Paranormal?

s GhostThis question was posed to me just recently by a gentleman that seemed generally confused by it all “Why are people drawn to the paranormal?”  I know several people that are total skeptics and they too wonder why?  The answers may be unclear.

First let me state I am not a doctor or any kind or a professional in the field of the paranormal.  I am whoever someone that has dealt with the paranormal activity in our building and have tried to assist the public with their comments and questions. I have worked for the Sweetwater County Library for 22 years now and years of experiences have given me and my co-workers a certain amount of clarity on the subject.

From all the input I have received and all the questions that have been put to me here is what I feel is the answer.  We are all looking for “answers”.  We lose a loved one, we lose a friend.  Is that it?  We all want the spirit to continue in some way.  If you have experienced paranormal activity in any way, it brings the question to light. A shadow moves where a shadow should not be.  So what is it?  A voice is heard where no one is seen.  So what is it?  We are all curious beings so the search begins. Is this a spirit that has lingered?

Individual’s are in need of answer s as to what these “things” are.  By doing investigations, gathering information and evidence, we allow ourselves the chance to better understand the unknown.   The Ghost Log was started  22 years ago.  Some people scoffed back then, but it has become a valuable tool.  We can now go back and find what happened, the time of year, month and day.  Compiling statistics on all the reports can allow us to project an overview.  Maybe, just maybe, by doing this we can understand what propels the spirits to act out more at one time or another.

Professional’s in the field of the paranormal are now easier to contact.  Here is a list of professionals that we have had the pleasure of working with.

*On a personal note, I do believe there is something beyond death.
