People often ask me how to employ the laser grid in paranormal investigation. Below is the write up I did on them, that I include with every order of a grid. If you’d like to try them out in your investigations, (or give your cat the toy of its life), they are available in my store on this web site.
Like most tools used in paranormal investigation, the laser grid was not designed specifically for hunting ghosts. These were originally used in laser light shows, but have been adapted for ghost hunting with a fairly simple theory in mind:
Creating a spray of lasers in an area where shadow figures or apparitions have been reported, makes the shadow figures and/or apparitions more apparent if they do manifest. It virtually eliminates cases of your “eyes playing tricks on you.”
Tips For Use
*The laser grid works best when set stationary somewhere. Adjust the “spray” according to the area you are trying to cover.
*Secure the on off switch to on by taping it down with gaffers tape or using a rubber band, (I use elastic hair ties.) There are laser grid tripods on the market, I avoid them as they tend to damage the on/off switch over time.
*Ideally, have an IR or full spectrum camera pointed the same direction as the lasers, so if an anomaly is seen, you will have captured it as potential evidence.
*The lasers virtually eliminate instances of your “eyes playing tricks on you.” The most common report in the field is that shadow figures envelop the lasers, causing them to disappear or distort as they pass through. When a live person steps into the grid, it’s quite obvious.
*My laser won’t turn on and the batteries are new.
Check the spring inside the grid and make sure it’s stretched out a bit. Sometimes the connection inside just isn’t happening.
*My laser is dimming and the batteries are new.
Make sure you’ve secured the button well enough. Also, if it’s cold, the grids tend to fade in and out. When we’ve used them in below zero temperatures, we’ve had to wrap them in hand warmers.
*I have put new batteries in each laser. However, during shipping they sometimes turn on and off, so apologies if the batteries are dead by the time they reach you!
These lasers are in the legal 5MW range, but looking directly at them, or shining them in someones eyes can still cause headaches, injury, etc. They’re not toys.
Good luck and happy hunting!
