I personally do not ghost hunt..... because of the unknown consequences....I just think about it a lot. However, not all experiences are negative. There is a dark side and a light side to everything. You're right though.....those who do this should be cautious just because we really are not sure of it's nature.

Parallel reality no, extra dimensional yes.
Why are 'ghosts' typically associated with negative emotions, they are in reality demons, negative spirits. There is a reason why they elicit a negative emotional response and oftimes fear when encountered. Yes, some folks get a thrill from that fear and seek it out and they would from a carnival ride. Unfortunately the danger behind the fear is real in the case of demonic influences. Be cautious.

I don't know about ghosts but the past few nights have been sort of strange. I have not been able sleep well due to a recent break up and work related stress and often awake at odd hours at night. For the last couple of nights I have been having recurring nightmares and I recall one these vividly(This dream has occurred more than once).
I remember being able to see my room(the one where I sleep) although my eyes were half-shut.There was some sort of weight bearing down on me and I recall seeing an amorphous figure in the mirror reflection(it almost felt as if some entity tried to enter my body). This sounds typical of REM sleep paralysis hallucinations but I wonder if someone could point out perhaps another explanation. Nothing of this sort has ever happened to me before.
Also another thing, I have a fan in my room and it starts swiveling rapidly whenever I awaken from such sleep paralysis encounters....weird but true.
Although I am normally skeptical of "ghost stories" but this experience has led to me to think differently.Our mind is something of an enigma that we are yet to comprehend fully. Perhaps there are other planes of existence in the same time-space continuum and at times the barriers between different realities are crossed and this leads to experiences we refer to as "ghost sightings" or "paranormal phenomena". Since our senses are not tuned to interpret realities other than what they are meant to define these sightings are usually amorphous.Think of it as a sort of lost frequency coming from a different wavelength altogether .

Maybe someone here who knows more than I do on this subject can answer your question. But this is one of the things I was bringing up....maybe dreams and sleep paralysis are connected to this as well. When you dream, it's like you go someplace else for awhile. Maybe sleep paralysis is simply the transition back and forth. I'm not saying all this is true, it's just things I have pondered.....
