Mess, left by other people
Maybe its just us, but one of the most common lines we’ve come from across with people involved in the paranormal. Which you may well have heard yourself Is the line “We have to go in to clear up the mess left by other people”.
Been trying to fathom what this infers exactly? Speaking with, an alleged medium who explained that other mediums with not much experience or those inspired by television shows and films. Stir up the energies in houses making the phenomena being encountered much worse and she takes up the task of performing “spirit clearing” to resolve the matters.
Another perspective experienced, is where groups who’ve gone in to a residential home and scared the people who live there. With talk of demons, entities and extreme events. Subjects in which they claim to be experts (or exterminators in) in order to conduct a nighttime vigil there. When the answer could be down to simply pressure in the radiator pipes, making them click when the heating is turned on, light reflections off the metallic surfaces in the kitchen at an angle when a car goes by in the evening to high electromagnetic fields and radiation from energy saving bulbs having an effect on them.
Trying to clean up mess left others? Breaking it down to the core elements. It is one group/person saying that a prior group(s)/person who have been involved with said case file. Gave information that has caused confusion, unhelpful information, which did not resolve issues or gave no real answers. This can lead to further problematic layers, where another person/group adds their interpretation, views and adds upon this confusion. Not to mention it is one persons opinion and belief that the something like a “cold vibe” in a place, is that of a spirit, as to another could be a demon, to another still it is a hex. whilst seemingly not many would say “Hey, everyone be cool, you be cool! Lets take out all this dogma that is clogging up the answers and lets look at this properly with a clear mind as it is likely the draft from the window over here that doesn’t shut properly.“
Everyones knowledge on such subjects is extremely varied, people who have anxieties and are under stress looking for answers will be up for anything and will follow the course of suggestions laid in front of them by the investigators’ bias on what “they” believe – not what could be in fact occurring.
Investigators in our opinion should be observers, recorders of information and perhaps a provider of a solution – by way of playing detective. Endeavouring to find answers not necessarily of a paranormal root, but the mundane.
