Are reports of haunted homes on the rise ?

Have you noticed anything unusual in your home lately ? Image Credit:
Paranormal researcher John E.L. Tenney maintains that lockdown is helping people to notice more phenomena.
With many of us still unable to go out due to the coronavirus lockdown, it certainly makes sense that people have been reporting more cases of paranormal activity occurring within their own homes.

According to John E.L. Tenney - a paranormal researcher and former host of the TV series Ghost Stalkers - this is likely because people are paying more attention to their environment.

Speaking to the New York Times recently, he noted that while he would typically receive two to five haunting reports per month in 2019, more recently it has been close to double that.

"It does seem to have something to do with our heightened state of anxiety, our hyper-vigilance," he said. "When the sun comes up and the house starts to warm up, they're usually at work - they're not used to hearing the bricks pop and the wood expand."
"It's not that the house wasn't making those sounds. They just never had the time to notice it."

Tenney elaborated further during an interview on CBC Radio's As It Happens:

"If we're going to allow or believe that ghosts exist, then people are seeing an uptick of ghosts," he said. "They're in a heightened emotional state. They've been sequestered."

"They're spending time in their house, which they normally don't do at certain hours. But if there are ghosts, perhaps they've had a ghost in their house all along and they've just never noticed that."

Blackbone paint. Yeah, that was spooky and relatively cheap and easy to find. Myself and another member discussed his case privately. I think we both drew the same conclusion. I can't mention it on the open forum because there is only suspicion, no evidence. If you're interested Piney just PM me.

Yep in the last day or so i asked papa basically the same thing and he copped out on me too, My guess why he wont post a specific case and just babbles there are on here is because the "haunted/ghost" cases on here all have been well explained and debunked, hence made papa look ridiculous if papa names one its like a um, a "badge of honor" he has nothing except his deep blind belief, so in a weird way its smart he avoids naming a case...

There is a much better chance of seeing a ghost by observing the security cameras inside the empty lobbies, theaters, factories, stations, restaurants, subway platforms, hotels, churches, shops, and offices. With most public locations closed there is bound to be some sort of activity being picked up on the security cameras.

Err... I totally misread that first time, can you guess what I... Maybe best we don't go there. It's a good example of brain trickery (shortcutting) though.

That could be part of it as well as people noticing the real paranormal too now that they are home more.

Its regional. The one around here was the "hey yall watch this" variant, but "shut up and hold on" was also popular.
