Paganism is a very very broad subject. All Wiccans are pagans but not all pagans are wiccans. The word pagan comes from old Europe meaning 'country dweller'. It is used to describe those of a polytheistic religion. Think of paganism as a big umbrella and that wiccan/witchcraft, druids, shamans, necromancers, magicians, sages, hindus (though not all hindu consider themselves pagan because of certain ties to how pagans are viewed), and others. However, usually people will commit to one of the religions mentioned before.
Wicca translates into 'wise one' They are nature based and believe in helping others and themselves. Wiccans believe in the male (God) and female (Goddess) energies. They can use what is called Magick (with a k to separate the magic that is a stage illusion to the magick that works with energy). Magick is used to make things happen in the universe with the help of certain energies (the 4 elements, a certain god or goddess, etc). You can compare magick to prayer that other religions use. The different gods and goddesses are like tapping into a specific energy like Catholics have with saints and angels. You may pray to St. Anthony to help find lost things just like a wiccan can pray to athena for wisdom.
Wiccans have the Wiccan Reed which is like the 10 commandments. See our "Ghost Hunting 101" page for more information.
A lot of the pagan religions really follow the part 'an ye harm none, do what ye will'. They say it differently but they believe that as long as your intention is not to harm anyone, you have the ability to do what you will. We also don't curse or hex people like Hollywood portrays. Basically because we reap what we sow and karma will come back to you 3 times as strong.

Yesterday I had an interesting discussion on the paranormal and spirits with a person who is of the Muslim faith. That led me to do some research on what we discussed. Thought you might find that information interesting. I was very intrigued by this dialogue and felt very honored to learn what I could.
You see I classify myself as a spiritual person, but not religous. I believe in a higher power and that karma will bite you in the ass. I have spent a lot of time researching and learning about all religions to that I'm more educated on the topics. So having this discussion was a great treat for me.
What I learned:
1) Muslims believe that Angels have no free will, therefore can NOT disobey God (Allah) under any circumstance.
2) They also believe that humans and supernational creatures called Jinns (or Genies) do have free will. Therefore, they believe that Satan was a Jinn and not a fallen angel.
3) Also paranormal activity would fall into the Jinns category.
The following is an exerpt I copied from Wikipedia:
Genie (Arabic: جني jinnī; variant spelling djinni) is a supernatural creature in Islamic teachings which (according to both mythology) occupies a parallel world to that of mankind, and together with humans and angels makes up the three sentient creations of Allah. According to the Qur’ān, there are two creations that have free will: humans and jinn. Religious sources say little about them; however, the Qur’an mentions that Jinn are made of smokeless flame, with their form similar to humans if they choose to spiritually possess a human body. The jinn also can be good, evil, or neutrally benevolent.
The Jinn are mentioned frequently in the Qur’an, and there is a surah entitled Sūrat al-Jinn in the Quran. Some Islamic scholars[who?] have ruled that it is apostasy to disbelieve in one of Allah's creations. Some research by the American Jewish Committee has shown that the belief in jinn has fallen compared to the belief in angels in other Abrahamic traditions.

Well the team and I are heading to Waverly Hills in May. I can't wait to get there again. We are looking for ideas of new ways to investigate there. So let us know if you have any ideas.
I don't know if you have ever been there or have even heard of it. You should check out their website if you haven't.

So this weekend had the coolest thing ever happen on an investigation. Once we review the evidence and do the client reveal I will share more. The greatest experience ever. Man I hope we caught some evidence.

This past weekend we had an investigation and got to use our Mel-8704 for the first time. We loved it. It has the ability to capture EMF and tempature readings at the same time. The model we have also has a build-in flashlight and vibration sensor. It really is the ultimate tool, with all the key tools that a paranormal investigators needs all in one small package.
We can't wait to use it more.

I'm off to Sedona, AZ tomorrow to see if I can find a vortex and maybe some ghosts. While we are out there, besides hiking, we plan to go to the grand canyon and visit a ghost town, Jerome. We will be there for New Year's Eve, which is a full moon this year. Actually this year it is a blue moon since it's the 2nd one in December. I'm hoping the moon and the vortex show us some spirits as well. I can't wait.
Have fun this week all and happy new year!
