Frequently Asked Questions
We are often asked the same quesions about our investigations and thought we would share our responses so that you have a good understanding of our ethos, practice and what to expect from a night.
If you have any further questions, please email the page and I will be more than happy to respond.
What is a Paranormal Investigators Role in an Investigation?
Kindred Spirit Investigators are all seasoned investigators with many professional years of experience. Our main focus is to encourage spirit contact using a range of different techniques of investigation. The team will guide you, demonstrating and explaining how our equipment works, what it measures and how it is to be used safely in order to record and evidence paranormal activity. Once the use of equipment is fully understood our equipment is handed to our customers so that you can begin investigating as you wish.
How Are Groups Organised?
We believe that more intimate groups encourage better spirit contact and less noise contamination. Therefore we aim to keep groupings below 7 people per investigator
What is the Customers Role in an Investigation?
Kindred Spirit Investigations have many customers that come time and time again this is because of two reasons, they know we do not fake evidence and more importantly we listen to what you want from the night. Our staff only know what you want if you tell them! Many people would like the opportunity to investigate by themselves or with a partner away from the group, try a particular technique or use a different piece of equipment. Kindred Spirit Investigations will endeavour to provide an experience that you would like just let our investigators know on the night or prior to the event so that this can be arranged.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO AN INVESTIGATION?
On any investigation it is advisable to wear comfortable, warm, layered clothing and suitable footwear. Some venues we investigate have uneven flooring so flat shoes, pumps and, running or walking shoes would be ideal. It is also advisable to bring a torch as many of the venues are very dark when the lights are turned off.
DO WE HAVE TO TAKE PART IN EVERYTHING?
The activities that we engage in are purely to encourage spirit contract. Everyone that comes to investigations have slightly different views and opinions. If you are not comfortable with any activity or anything that we do on an investigation you do not have to participate. One common example is the Ouija board. Many people have negative preconceptions about the use of a Ouija board and will not use it. If this is something that you do not want to try this is perfectly fine. Customers sometimes choose to watch what is happening around the board and listen while others will continue investigating using another piece of equipment.
CAN I BRING SNACKS?
Of course. All we ask is that you dispose of the litter in the bins provided. There is however a light buffet provided throughout the night.
ARE ALL VENUES HAUNTED?
All venues that we investigate have reports of paranormal activity either recently or historically. We do not attend venues that have no reports of activity.
WILL I BE SCARED ON AN INVESTIGATION?
Investigating the paranormal can be interesting, exciting and frightening at times. Sometimes on investigations things may happen that are beyond our understanding and belief systems. It is at these times when our customers can become fearful or scared and some customers have fled venues as they have been overcome with fear. However, the majority of people attending investigations do so with a little uncertainty and many come back time and time again feeling secure in the knowledge that spirit will not harm them.
WILL I SEE A GHOST?
Seeing spirit would be wonderful but we cannot guarantee this and have to say that it is not common place to see full bodied apparitions on an investigation. However, we have had whole groups of customers observe apparitions and catch them of technology also. Although apparitions are more rare, spirit contact and communicate in a range of different ways and throughout the night you should hear some bangs, taps, whispering, voices, flashes of light, doors moving etc from the environment in which are unexplainable but unfortunately spirit communication is not guaranteed.
WHAT IF I DONT’T GET SPIRIT ACTIVITY?
.Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee paranormal activity. Just like with humans spirit will choose to communicate when it feels like it and on its terms. We have a variety of tools and techniques to encourage spirit contact and most nights some paranormal activity is observed. Any activity that you do experience will be genuine. We do not fake evidence or have planted actors/actresses and we also do not have ‘jumpers’. Any person found to be faking evidence purposely will be asked to leave the event and will be banned from coming to our events in the future.
