Hmmm ! Good question.
It would be more appropriate to say that 'investigating got into me'.
I have been aware of spirits / ghosts since I was a young child ... I know this is a bit of an over-used phrase nowadays ... but in my case it just
happens to be true.
I saw my first solid manifestation of spirit when I wa 3 yrs old ... and there were a regularly 3-4 spirit children who would play with me in my room
until I was about 9-10 ... this is when I first realized that not everyone saw things in exactly the same way that I did.
So it's true to say that throughout my life I have just accepted spirits ... in exactly the same way that I accept the thousands of living people
that I pass in the street day to day. The only difference being, that if you get a taxi (cab) and there happens to be a spirit along for the ride ...
they never go halves with the fayre.
Another time when I worked in a small therapy centre a few miles from my home ... I was coming home on the bus, when I felt someone sit in the seat
behind me ... lean forward and whisper in my ear that the small lake to my left was 'where he'd died' ... I looked around and of course there was
no-one there ... in fact there was no-one sitting anywhere behind me on the entire bus.
This voice had been such a clear whisper in my ear, that I researched the old copies of the local newspapers at the library and discovered that in the
August of 1889, a farmer had lost control of his cart and it had tipped into the lake, whereby both he and the carthorse had drowned before they could
As for the 'investigation' part ... I often get people asking me how to 'do' it ... or ask to come along when I go to a house etc.
A couple of these people showed genuine interest and innate talents in the field, so I decided to form W.I.S.P.S (Woodwytch Investigations of
Supernatural & Paranormal Source).
You'd be surprised how many people are happy to let their resident spirits stay, once they know their story ... and realize they're not there to
harm them ... it's always that fear of the unknown that creeps people out ... and once it's no longer unknown ... they have nothing to fear.
By trade I am a Pastlife Regression Therapist, so for me W.I.S.P.S is one of my 'after hours' methods of relaxation.
... I've never been
scared of spirits (even the negative ones) ... and if ever I do feel 'spooked' I know it's just my imagination (that's how I judge situations).
But the events that I spoke of in this thread was probably the most menacing entity I've ever dealt with ... but in the end he had nothing to back
up his threats and inuendo. And for the now peace has been restored.
