Scott Flagg, a paranormal expert who has researched more than 100 cases of alleged ghosts, hauntings and poltergeists around the world, says one problem that often develops with haunted house owners is that after a legitimate supernatural experience, the line begins to blur between paranormal and just...well, normal.
"Every time the light bulb burns out or they hear a strange noise at night, they attribute that to the belief system they've developed, and it sort of contaminates their objectivity and can be problematic," he says.
When strange occurrences start happening in a home, family members often blame one another, which causes stress in the household, Roth says. The stress itself is negative energy that can feed off of the other energies in the home, creating a situation that might be even worse. Once again, it's important not to panic every time something unexplained happens in your home. Instead, dig a little deeper to try to find an explanation for what you're experiencing -- paranormal or otherwise.
