Do you actively go "looking for trouble" when it comes to the paranormal?

I admit I have... mostly with ghost hunts. Sometimes I'll try a "provocation" to try to get a response, and usually after witnessing random out of the ordinary happenings at home I'll ask and/or dare "it" to do it again and/or show itself.

It's never worked for me.

Do you have any stories or thoughts?

Well, I don't know if you would consider this exactly what you are talking about, but I have summoned (and rarely, commanded) an entity to communicate with me over the years. However, it was always for a specific purpose, i.e., usually b/c a friend or family member wanted to make connection with a particular family member who had passed over.

I don't waste my energy as it is often very taxing to communicate . . . so I don't think I have ever dared an entity to show itself. I have asked for a confirmation before but since I "feel" when there are entities/spirits around me, I don't usually have any reason to try to persuade them to prove their presence. (Does that even make sense? LOL) The only time I have asked for a confirmation was really for the other person's benefit (whoever is with me and needing to make contact).

When I was much younger, I had this rather impertinent entity relay to me that he/she "was not a circus act" after my repeatedly requesting that he/she "do something" to prove his/her presence . . . and after that . . . I decided that perhaps it was best I cooled it on the "show me a sign" stuff, hee hee.

I have never done this but I feel and see spirits around me all the time so no need but to me challenging a spirit to perform is like challenging God to prove himself, never a good idea in my opinion.

^^ Yeah, I just don't think it's a good idea and I don't know why people would do this.

Me as well. I have heard so many great stories but have almost no real experience that I can recall. Because of this I take a more scientific approach to the subject, Like Scully in the X-Files TV series during the first and second season.

Oh me too. I loved the episode where they showed that the government was hiding truth files of encounters.

I have been forced to battle spirits and demons my entire life. I have a very bad feeling this world ends ugly. My skill is battling the worst and darkest demons. My path in life was always obscured or obstructed by Christians. They gave me nothing in life, they are the true demons of this world. They will do anything for power. In the end, we will all find out who or what created this disaster called life.

Aleister, I am sorry you have had such bad experiences with Christians. I am a Christian but also know the feeling of people who claim to be Christians but instead hurt and judge others. You are right. In the end all truth will be known on these things, but I just wanted to apologize and say not ALL Christians are that way.

Most Christians will agree with that statement.

Battling the dark forces has given you a bleak outlook. What you fight, inevitably you risk becoming the same.
