I was interested in trying EVP, and I did some research on it. I've yet to try it, but here are a few suggestions that I read if you'd like to try
1. Set an appointment. Actually write down the date and time that you plan to talk to the spirit, and tell them out loud that you will be contacting
them, say, "tomorrow at 4:30."
2. There's certain recording equipment that works better than others. You can research this on the net. Some digital recorders work better than
standard tape decks, and vise versa.
3. Keep trying. You may have to do it for weeks or months before you get any noticeable results. They also say it doesn't matter what time of day
you do it. So if I was a little scared, I'd stick to the daytime.
4. Keep a regular schedule. This also goes with making the appointment, as in #1. If you countinuously try to contact the spirit or spirits at the
same time and day, on a regular schedule, you may have better results.
5. Some recorders will require background noise. This background noise is what the spirits actually use to produce the audio of their voices.
Background noise can come from anything from a fan to the loudness of the tape recorder itself. It's very important that there be some steady, but
low, background noise for the spirits to work from. Some of the cheaper or older tape recorders come with their own built-in background noise, just
because they're so loud. You may even be better off using an external microphone, rather than the recorder's built in one.
6. IMPORTANT. Although I haven't read of any known cases of spirits doing harm to people through EVP, you should be very careful. If you're
depressed, under a lot of stress, easily scared, etc. you may not want to try this. There are good and bad spirits out there. Spirits can feed off
of negative energy from things such as depression or even fear. You're basically inviting them into your world by doing this EVP, so therefore you
must be prepared for the consequences.
As I've said, I've never even done this. These are just suggestions that I've read. I'd be very careful doing this, and I'd make sure that you
have multiple people with you who are also mentally prepared for what may come about. No matter what, keep trying. It may take a long time to get
something, and you may even have to tweak with the tape to even hear it. Good luck.
