This whole thing we call B.H.P.R.

We started B.H.P.R. to reaserch for ourselves and see with our own eyes the possibilities of the paranormal world. I originally thought that most people would be apprehensive about speaking about the supernatural and things of that sort. I have found the opposite to be true. People are more than willing to speak of their own experiences, if they feel they are being listened to. They feel that by speaking of their experiences, they can make some sense of them, if not validating to themselves that they actually experienced it.

I have limited experience in the supernatural myself, but have opened my mind to the realm of possibilities surrounding these occurances. I think that an experience in this can be different for everyone. In the most personal contact I've ever had, I had a feeling of a complete rush. It was extremely unexpected and happened suddenly. I found myself at the mercy of my meters and gauges. I never had an experience like that before, but would like to have that or a more extreme occurance happen again. I wasn't frightened, but I felt that I had made contact.

Investigations are broken into several stages. They occur in ascending order.

1) The first level is called the initial stage. This can take place several ways. A client can contact us and ask us to investigate, or we may approach an owner or resident to inquire into the rumored or not so rumored happenings. At each step of the way the team decides whether or not to pursue the investigation further. The initial stage is basically a fact finding mission. All these facts and interviews are then taken back to the group and voted upon whether to pursue this investigation. If we decide to go further then we can elect to jump to the next level. Most times this is where the investigation ends for us. There are many things which pop up here that can quickly derail an investigation. Some are listed here.

A) Not enough activity to pursue.

B) Unwillingness of the current owners or residents to work with us.

C) Safty issues. Sometimes our safty can not be reasonably accounted for and we must decline to investigate on those terms.

D) Signs of fraud. This happens more than you might think.

E) Unreliability of witnesses. Sometimes through no fault of their own, witnesses can not provide enough information to us regarding an encounter(s).

F) The site not being available for us to research. We are sometimes unable to secure the area for investigations.

So you see there are many things that can hinder our investigation to where it can not be performed properly. All of the reasons are not listed here of course.

2)The next level is called a preliminary investigation. This is basically a more in depth investigation of the environment. This is base line readings and searching the house for irregular electrical patterns,unique structural characteristics, and other notes of intrest. Afterwards the information is again taken back and decided whether or not to pursue this matter.

3)Then comes the Full investigation. This is usually at least an eight hour investigation which is usually overnight. Everyone is on site and all are keeping data and notes. The important thing about this part of the investigation I think is to keep attuned to your environment. Not to get caught up in an overflow of conversation, and make sure your ready. This is more difficult than it sounds. Keeping on your toes for one hour is tough, not to mention eight straight. The key I believe to getting the most out of an investigation is keeping the amount of researchers to a minimum. I think the very most should be 8 researchers. Any more than that and you can get the result of "Too many chefs". This makes each resercher work to a higher level. With less people working, the more needs to be completed by each researcher.
