How home improvement can upset the spirit level…
20th October, 2008 – Painting and decorating was a far cry from a recent paranormal posting on top trades and services site MyHammer.co.uk this week. An unusual job posting asks for a ghosthunter ‘to cleanse my house of unwanted spirits.’ And, according to the London Paranormal Society, ghosts and ghouls are most likely to be disturbed during home improvements, which is why MyHammer has recruited the services of a bona-fide ghost-hunter this Halloween.
Ian Shilliot, Director of the London Paranormal Society says: “Not many people are aware, but theories suggest that a sudden explosion of ghostly activity can be increased by building work and refurbishment. Pockets of residual energy or emotion left by previous occupants of the house are released into the ether causing apparitions, auditory phenomena, and possible poltergeist activity. Another more colourful theory suggests a ghost or grounded spirit attached to your home is unhappy with the alterations.”
