Merry meet all,
I am a fan of Nox Arcana. There is nothing I won’t do for them. I’m listening to Nox Arcana now as I type. Today is rainy and overcast. The sun is on vacay. The temperatures here are still cold.
I enjoy going on ghost walks and tours. I have been on a few in my own spooky ghost ridden town. I live in a very haunted city. There was a war here between the Natives and the people who came from Europe. the Halifax Explosion, the Titanic victims are buried here. The land here is soaked in blood. The city has a blood soaked history. The ghost tours are creepy and fascinating.
Here are some tips for participating in ghost tours for you.
Read a bit about the history or the ghost tour beforehand. It is not enough to just have fun, a ghost tour can be educational too.
Prepare yourself mentally for the tour. You may even see a ghost or two. The information presented during the tour can be blood curdling or unsettling. Be prepared ahead of time.
Have fun-and a sense of humor. Don’t let the narrator’s scary tone scare you off, pardon the pun. Keep an open mind.
Go with what you are comfortable with. Don’t let fear takeover your experience of fun. Have fun. That is the point of it. If you stress, then your mind will play more tricks on you.
Ask about the nature of the tour. I went on a ghost tour where we all ended up in a dark tunnel at night. The person’s cell phone light two people ahead of me in the line was the only light we had. Go with what you are comfortable with.
Be chatty. It can help relieve tension that may have built up inside you.
And my favorite tip: If you are as clairsentient and actually witnessed phantoms, then take a like minded friend with you. It helps when the muggles are joking about ghosts and helps validate your experiences. You won’t feel like the odd one out. Trust me, I know how that feels.
I hope these tips help!
Good luck on the ghosty tours!
