The 5 Best places to see a Ghost


If you are trying to catch a glimpse of a spirit, here’s a list of some places you might be able to catch one!


  1. An old building. Ghosts like to visit places they used to hang out.
  2. The site of a tragedy. There are theories that spirits get trapped at locations when they die. It can’t hurt to look for them at these places.
  3. Near water. A lot of people believe water is a natural conductor of paranormal energy. It makes sense that ghosts might travel by water.
  4. Anywhere isolated. In my experience, ghosts tend to stay away from large groups of people and like to keep to themselves.
  5. Cemeteries. Some people insist this is the best place to see a ghost (for obvious reasons) but I’ve never personally encountered one in a cemetery. It can’t hurt to keep an eye out though if you do step in one of these places.

The Devil's Box


I’ve been hearing a bit of stir lately about investigator’s using something called a Devil’s Box during investigations. This is a simple box made of mirrors that is set out on an investigation with the hope that it will lure a spirit. Once the ghost goes into the box to take a closer look, the spirit is supposedly trapped inside the box. The people using the box can then question the spirit or remove it from the premises.

Personally, I’m pretty doubtful of any of this. Anyone with experience with ghosts knows that they are usually pretty intelligent. They would know better than to get themselves stuck in a simple box. Even if one did decide to investigate, they would certainly be able to figure out how to exit the same way they entered. Spirits are also frequently observed moving through walls. I don’t see why a simple mirror would prevent them from using this ability.

While it would be amazing if a ghost hunter did figure out a way to pin down a ghost, I doubt it’s something that we will ever really understand, unless some serious, thorough scientific studies are done on ghosts. If we don’t understand what they are, we certainly can’t understand how to capture them.


What do you think? Do you think ghosts can be captured? Would you use a Devil’s Box?
