As we wind down for the year, this week I'm going to share my favourite articles I have written this year in 2021! After 6 years of LLIFS I always worry I'll run out of things to write about but it is the opposite. So much choice, so many questions! 

In all honesty, when I was scrolling through the year that was and re-reading the articles and research, it was really hard to pick favourites.  Everything I write about intrigues me in some way and I put my heart and soul into every word I write so every article is close to me and could be on the favourites list.  Anyway, I had to make a list so these are the ones I guess I am most proud of.  They steer away from a lot of the typical articles you might see circulating on blogs and I always try to offer something a little different.  I hope you have enjoyed 2021 with LLIFS and there is plenty more to come in 2022.  Thank you for your support and friendship and I can't wait to see what we uncover and explore together in 2022! 

Here is the best of 2021!  What was your favourite?  What do you want to see me write about in 2022?

Is synesthesia and psychic ability linked?

Synesthesia is a neurological condition that causes a person to experience something on a multi-sensory level. While originally I thought it might offer an explanation to some claims of psychic ability, I began to wonder if it in some ways aids a person in unlocking psi abilities.

Tachypsychia, fight or flight and the paranormal

Time slowing down is often reported during paranormal experiences. Is time really slowing down or is it all in our perception? How does fight or flight play a role in the way we react during a paranormal investigation?

Are UFO sightings a form of psychic projection?

We talk about the possibility that we could be manifesting our own ghosts through psychic projection. What if we applied this same train of thought toward UFO phenomena? Are we manifesting our own UFO lights in the sky? Is there are a connection between experiences with spirits and extra terrestrials?

Children and ESP

Do children have the natural ability of ESP? Why does it seem to fade as a child gets older? What is the significance of having a personal connection? Let's explore these concepts through the work of Louisa E Rhine.

EVP communication with living people

There is evidence to suggest that it is living people we may be communicating with during a paranormal investigation. While there are many experiments that test communication and psychic projection between living people using EVP, is it also possible to communicate with a living person who is sleeping?

The ethics behind recordings

While investigators often playback recordings hoping to hear spirit voices, sometimes they pick up things they are not supposed to hear ..... the private conversations of people unaware their conversation is being recorded. What ethics should be considered in these situations?

The Dunning-Kruger Effect

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is a cognitive bias where a person overestimates how much they think they know about a subject.

Desperately deceptive

There are different reasons for people faking activity. From being funny to getting their 15 minutes of fame, we as investigators have strong opinions when deception is involved. But what about the people who are so desperate for someone to believe them that they begin to fake or copy activity they have experienced just so someone else will believe them?

Children who claim to remember their past life

There are thousands of accounts where Children know intimate details of people halfway across the World they couldn't possibly know and whom they have never met. They believe they were this person in a former life. It becomes more interesting when the information they recall is validated to be true.

Grief and the paranormal

When a loved one passes away, it is commonly reported in the weeks and months that follow that family members feel their presence in some way. While they may be making themselves known to us, what if our grief can cause activity to present itself in other ways?

EVP Class System

You are probably familiar with terms like "Class A EVP" often talked about on popular paranormal tv shows or by investigators, but what does it actually mean? Where did the class system come from and how was it adapted into modern-day paranormal investigation? Is it time for a class system overhaul?

Scopaesthesia: Is somebody staring at me?

Do you ever 'feel' like you are being watched? Scopaesthesia is a phenomenon when people can 'feel' if a person is staring at them. Is it an act of ESP or is our brain really good at picking up on cues?

The false positives of paranormal equipment

More than ever, people are using a range of devices to measure their surroundings in the hope of detecting something paranormal. Here are some of the common things that can cause a false positive reading.

Stage Illusions

During the Victorian Era, the lines between magic and spiritualism were often blurred. What seemed like amazing supernatural acts were later found to be magic tricks. Here is how some of them worked!

Solar Flares and the paranormal

Over the last few days, there was a large solar flare event that was heavily reported in the media.  Solar flares are nothing new and just one of the reasons that mother nature is so wonderful and interesting. It got me wondering of course, what does this mean when it comes to the paranormal?  

Types of Ghosts according to Peter Underwood

In his book The Ghost Hunter's Guide published in 1986, Peter Underwood details the different kinds of 'ghosts' he had put into different categories. From atmospheric photograph ghosts, crisis apparitions through to survival after death and even time slips, here are the different types of ghosts according to Peter Underwood.

Psychic Imprints

Could locations be 'haunted' by the psychic imprints of the paranormal investigators who walked the halls before them?
