A psychic paranormal investigator uses their abilities to assist a team investigate suspected paranormal activity. Each psychic has their own processes and methods for receiving and interpreting the information through their psychic gifts.

Investigate Paranormal Claims

Like other paranormal researchers, psychic paranormal investigators go where there are claims of paranormal activity, such as ghosts or poltergeists. Business or property owners often invite them because they believe something strange is happening in their home, in their business, or on their property, so they turn to a psychic paranormal investigator for help.

Not only does the psychic assist paranormal teams, but the family involved in a haunting or paranormal encounter are helped. This is most important for a successful outcome of a paranormal investigation. This allows not just the family, but the spirit(s) to find closure and finally move on. Once the psychic arrives at the location, they use their psychic abilities to determine what might be causing the activity. They may do this solo or as part of a team of paranormal researchers. Ideally, the psychic works with other team members to discover the source of the activity.

According to psychic Robyne Marie, aka "The Boston Ghost Magnet," her team performs a preliminary investigation before bringing her in as a psychic medium to confirm their findings. She explains, "They bring me in blindly without revealing any info to me. They set me loose at a location, and I will always go straight to where they suspected activity or where they have knowledge of something spiritual happening."

Psychic Connects With Energies

The psychic may provide in-depth information about a property's history by connecting with the energy of past events. This is done by reading the residual imprint those events left on the location. The psychic may receive this imprint as images in their mind's eye, flashes of scenes as though watching a video, hear conversations, feel emotions, smell of specific aromas, and other impressions imprinted on the space.

An experienced psychic knows if something is a symbol or an authentic depiction of what happened in the location. The team's researcher can then verify what the psychic reveals about historical events. This process provides validation that the psychic is tuned in to the energies of the area. The psychic now uses this information to open pathways for more information to come to them as the investigation progresses.

Helpful Psychic Tools for Investigation

Many psychics use tools to augment their talents in communicating with spirit. Some of these include a Ouija board or another type of talking board, tarot cards, pendulums, dowsing rods, angel cards, automatic writing, and many other divination tools. Holding a seance can be an excellent way for a psychic to communicate with a ghost or spirit.

Another valuable spirit communication tool for a psychic is scrying. There are several ways a psychic can scry. Some develop their own methodology or use traditional ways, such as a quartz crystal, crystal ball, mirror, or even a bowl of water. The psychic is able to see within the depths of these mediums animated images, similar to a movie or video.

Scrying with Photos

Robyne Marie uses photos to scry. She says, "I see live and animated spirits who place themselves in the photo so I can communicate with them." But she admits that some spirits don't really do anything other than stand in the photo. She has experienced some spirits dance, speak, and even sing to her. And still, others send her images of their memories.

"They may be sitting on your furniture or cooking at your stove - going through the same steps they were accustomed to in life." Among the cast of ghosts, she often has pets show up for their moment in the photo. "Teams across the globe send me photos of their investigations, which I scry and then give them my results," she adds.

Spirit Communication Helps Paranormal Investigations

A psychic paranormal investigator can communicate with different spirits and other types of entities. Some beings may never have incarnated on the Earth, are referred to as angelic beings. A person's individual spirit guide(s) often come through during an investigation with messages specific to the location. Psychic mediums can communicate with their guide(s), who can convey messages from the spirits haunting the location.

These beings may provide insight into the haunting to shed light on why a spirit is hanging around a specific location or is attached to a person. This is a key part of an investigation that sometimes can resolve any unfinished business an entity has. Robyne Marie says, "Entities can be wherever they choose to be. If a spirit is often here, on this plane with us, there is a reason."

Communicating with Spirits

She explains that some hauntings occur as a form of attention seeking by the spirits. Often there is some unfinished business that the spirit needs human help with before they can move on to the next life. Other spirits simply hang around to watch over their loved ones. Robyne Marie points out that whatever the reason is for the haunting, spirits are never stuck or trapped.

"A spirit may be traumatized and have to work through his or her passing," she says. This is where a psychic or medium can assist the spirit in releasing its hold on this world. It can be something as simple as delivering a message to a family member, or as complex as letting a loved one know what happened to the deceased, especially when it is a missing person situation.

This is where a psychic paranormal investigator may end up helping police solve crimes. In fact, some police departments secretly consult with psychic investigators on a regular basis. There are several well-documented cases where psychics have helped police in solving murders and missing person cases. Several have been re-enacted in various crime documentaries and dedicated psychic crime solving TV shows.
