The Ghost Hunting Formula: The new and the full moon
phase, doest it really have impact on ghost hunting ?
The limitation and data collections
of the research.

Based on Malaysian Paranormal Research's Paranormal Index

Furthermore, the primary data was collected from
our own investigation based on 16 paranormal and ghost research
investigations shown in Table 1.
secondary data on the sunspot and geomagnetic
alerts were collected from
and Controversy on ghost hunting formula.
Since the year 2007,
the Malaysian Paranormal Research has conducted their paranormal
research mostly during the full and the new moon and the results
were always great until early 2007 when they realized that the
percentage of the achievement success had started to deplete.
In fact, for the past
2 years in their paranormal and ghost research investigations,
results during the said time based on the
PiARS score showed how the PiARS
achievement index had fallen between 0 to 49% which is 'extremely
poor' to the 'poor' results. Moreover, similar results were also
shared by the Malaysian Ghost Research team based in Sabah over
3,000 kilometers away from west Malaysia. In fact, the Malaysian
Ghost Research based in Kedah also reported the same results.
Furthermore, the claim
that the full and the new moon phases based on the lunar calendar
is one of the best times for ghost hunting and which works all over
the world has suddenly reached its end when the said claim has
failed to produce similar success results in paranormal and ghost
research in Malaysia that happens to be located at the equator.
Hence, sudden changes in the achievement success that has depleted
from day to day has introduced a new phenomena in ghost hunting in
Malaysia that further gives rise to a doubt on the credibility of
the moon phase that had been pointed out to be one of the best time
for ghost hunting.
In search of the
answer as to why suddenly for the pass 2 years the moon phase no
longer has bearing on paranormal and ghost hunting in Malaysia, the
Malaysian Paranormal Research had contacted the IGHS experts for a
second opinion on how to explain the issue.
However, the IGHS had
admitted that they had no explanation to offer to explain why the
formula no longer works in Malaysia as the formula works fine in the
US paranormal investigation, and because of that, we were prompted
to conduct a research to find out whether the new and the full moon
phases really have an impact on ghost hunting or were there other
possible factors that may have contributed to the success in
paranormal and ghost hunting achievement.
The new and the full moon phase, do
they really have impact on ghost hunting ?
With regard to this
issue, the Malaysian Paranormal Research has implemented the
scientific analysis approach based on the database to show
correlation between the percentage of the PiARS achievement and the
the percentage of the full moon.
Clustered Column 1: PiARS achievement during the Full
Column 1 shows investigations having been conducted in 4 different
sites, that is twice during the full moon and twice during 1 or 2
days before the full moon. Interestingly, the achievements shows
that there is no exact correlation between the PiARS achievement and
the moon phase. In fact, the most recent paranormal investigations
conducted in a public park during the 99% of the full moon resulted
with no success at all.
Clustered Column 2: PiARS achievement during the New
Clustered Column 2 shows an investigation were conducted in 4
different sites during the new moon and there are 2 investigations
were conducted in the same site. Interestingly, this Clustered
Column 2 shows that the achievement considered to be high during the
new moon. Nevertheless, there was no consistency in achievement
success that shown by the investigation that conducted in the Jungle
site which is only 1% of full moon differences that give us the
impression that new moon have no impact on ghost hunting.
Clustered Column 3: PiARS achievement during the non new and full
Column 3 shows that the percentage of
PiARS achievement is higher during the times in between the full
and new moon. Nevertheless, the achievement success also suggests
that the achievement has nothing to do with the percentage of full
moon of the moon phase, for example the investigation result in the
Jungle site showed a distinct difference although the full moon
difference was only 2%, which suggested that there are other
factors that determine the achievement success in ghost hunting.
What has the 1 year research found.
on the analysis of the percentages of
PiARS achievement during the full moon, new moon and the time in
between, it is suggested that the moon phase has no impact on ghost
hunting. Furthermore, the research findings have proof and suggest
1. The Moon Phase has no impact on
The Line Chart below
indicates that the paranormal investigation achievement success
pattern shows a negative relationship. Furthermore, during the full
moon the achievement is below 20% based on
PiARS. Meanwhile, during the new moon, the achievement also
below 20% accept for the investigation that was conducted in a
public park where were the achievement is above 30% and in the
jungle where the achievement is almost 40%. However, the achievement
patterns suggest that there is no constant relationship between the
achievement patterns and the moon phase.

and Moon Phase.
2. Depleting paranormal achievement
success over time.
In fact, based on the
investigation database, investigations that have been conducted
almost a year since 2007 show another interesting fact which is the
percentage of the
PiARS achievement over time that portray depleting success as
shown in Line Chart 2.
In addition, in
October 2007 the percentage of the
PiARS achievement is almost 70% and in July to September 2008
almost a year's difference showing how the achievement has greatly
been reduced to below 10% and 0%. Therefore, the depleting
PiARS achievement over time confirm that there are other major
factors that may determine the best time for ghost hunting.
Line Chart 2: Percentage of PiARS achievement over
In fact, the PiARS
achievement from the investigation conducted at a historical site
shown in Line Chart 3 below shows a distinct depletion of PiARS
achievement success from almost 70% in October 2007 to below 10% in

the Historical site.
Another good example
of the depleting PiARS achievement over time is the investigation
that had been conducted in a Jungle shown in Line Chart 4, which
shows how in Nov 2007 the PiARS achievement was almost 60% and in
Aug 2008 the achievement resulted in 0%.

3. Other factors that
determine the achievement at
Column Bar 1 shows
achievement differences in paranormal ghost hunting over time at 8
different sites. Interestingly over time, achievement at certain
sites shows PiARS achievement differences. At the Historical Site
for example, achievement over time has been noticeably reduced, and
this includes the Jungle site too as shown in Line Chart 1 and Line
Chart 4 above.

researcher has observed that these achievement differences have
provided the opportunity to realise the possibilities of other
factors that may greatly contribute or have great impact on the
achievement success in paranormal and ghost research. Among other
factors that the researcher has identified are:
The presence of a nearby spirit portal.
Based on the
researcher's experience in conducting paranormal investigation, the
researcher has come to realise that certain areas have active
spirit activity due to the existence of a nearby spirit portal. For
example, the researcher had identified a spirit portal in the Jungle
site covering a small area that had generated uneasy feelings in the
researcher i.e the feeling of being threatened.
researcher had conducted 2 investigations at the same spot that had
brought about success in documenting spirit activity. Furthermore,
when an investigation was conducted far from the spirit portal, the
achievement success was reduced significantly. In fact, the last
investigation that was conducted 200 meters away from the spirit
portal had resulted in 0% investigation success. Unfortunately, not
all paranormal investigation sites have a spirit portal.
Nevertheless, most of
the time the presence of a spirit portal can be indentified through
the radiation of energy vibration that causes us to have uneasy
feelings. However, as the spirit portal may only cover a small
area, we will feel the uneasy feelings being removed or reduced as
we go away from the spirit portal area. Therefore, understanding the
psychology of the spirit is very important. In fact, the uneasy
feelings generated by the spirit portal can be considered a warning
that we are not welcome. Hence, what should we do? In this regard,
it is our responsibility to tell the spirits why we are there and
who we are followed by showing respect and reverence towards those
The degree of inter-acceptance.
Understanding of the
degree of inter-acceptance between the researcher and spirits during
ghost hunting is one of the most crucial rules. In fact, when a
spirit is reluctant to welcome us, the degree of inter-acceptance
will be turned down or closed which then causes us to either feel
abandoned, or to feel as though we are being chased away by the
uneasy feelings generated from the spirit energy. In line with this,
the researcher would like to point out that the degree of
inter-acceptance plays a big role in paranormal investigation during
the non-conducive time to conduct a paranormal investigation for
example, the paranormal investigation that the researcher had
conducted at the school ground had shown 56% PiARS achievement as
the researcher who serves at the said school may have been well
known among the spirits.
Therefore, by putting
effort to show kindness, respect and reverence not only will enable
us to send out our love towards spirits but it will also enable us
to merge with our inner soul that will further enable us to be being
accepted by those spirits because being human or spirit, we are
bonded by universal love. In addition, the universal love code only
can be defined by the true self which is the soul in us that
connects with others at the higher dimensions in different levels of
love through the nature of relationships.
The gentle touch of inner soul.
The gentle touch of
the inner soul simply means the explanations of our true nature.
However, this gentle touch does not mean it is limited to the actual
concept of who we are but also it is determined by our ability to
merge with our inner soul by understanding the concept of
mind-body-soul that becomes the key to gathering our knowledge into
a single existence in the presence of the pure energy of love.
Furthermore, when we
apply the mind-body-soul concept through meditation, only will we
renew our mind but we also will be able to touch the inner soul of
others including those of spirits through pure energy radiating
from our inner soul that consist of love. Nevertheless, if we fail
to understand even our own selves then we don't need to think of
touching others with pure love but instead we may declare 'war'
and, this is very unhealthy in ghost hunting because it may generate
negative energy that further summons low level spirits.
Understanding human nature in spirit existence.
Understanding that spirits are also human that behave exactly like
you and I will not only make it easier for us to accept their
existence but will also make it easier for spirits to accept us.
Meanwhile, most of us may think that all spirits can fly or even
pass through a door and walls but the truth is that this ability is
almost impossible for them to do so as they have been conditioned to
live in a physical body while living in the physical world so much
so that all along, their movements have been limited by the
fundamental nature that governs the 5 senses.
Therefore, living in the physical body that becomes the 'outer
shell' of our personality becomes the norm even to spirits at the
higher level of existence. However, when our personality the inner
soul is released from the outer shell, the experiences, emotions and
thoughts remain as unique geomagnetic fields. Unfortunately, the
intelligence which is retained may give negative impact on our
existence on a higher plane of existence.
addition, due to the fact that the soul has been used to living in
physical body while on Earth therefore, they still preferred to have
a 'body'. Thus, the soul creates a 'body' of energy that usually
people will see as 'copy' of the Earthly body of a person.
the preference to have a 'body' and retaining all human qualities
are efforts that spirits continue their lives as normal as possible
at the higher plane of existence without the physical body they had
on Earth by creating a new 'body' that is similar to their body in
the physical world. Unfortunately, putting back their 'Earthly body'
at the higher plane of existence will only limit the freedom they
gained through the transition from the physical into the spirit
Therefore, in line with this, we need to put the law of human nature
in ghost hunting to bring about new dimension in our understanding
of the spirit nature in paranormal investigation which tells us
that, although spirits have attained the freedom of movement but
when they make an effort to put back their 'body' into life at the
higher plane of existence, then they are only putting back the
limitations that were supposedly to have been released during the
death process. In that way, they will lose their ability to walk
through solid objects.
However, by understanding such limitations, spirits may change their
existence from one form to another to suit their needs in movements.
Therefore, paranormal investigations conducted outdoors by Malaysian
Paranormal Research found that spirits in the physical world
followed the law of human nature by following a pathway in the
jungle and not by just simply walking through bushes.
Therefore, it is logical that when we conduct paranormal
investigation such as in a jungle, our investigation focus should be
a pathway or open area where the investigators themselves can access
the place. And, if a home the focus of the video camera should be
the door ways or the place where the living can access.
addition, seeing a spirit walking through a wall or doors and vanish
from the scene is just to explain the nature of the spirit world
that exists in the form of energy which is the reflection of our own
dimension. Furthermore, the vision may also explain the overlapping
dimension that overlaps into our domain yet the parallel dimension
setting may not exactly be the same as our own dimension due to
The question of what the indicators
of a good reference are to determine the best time for ghost hunting
has been solved through a 1 year research (since 2007) by the
Malaysian Paranormal Research that has not only found that the moon
phase has no impact on ghost hunting especially in Malaysia that
happened to be located at the equator, but also has given us the
opportunity to observe other factors that contribute to the
achievement success in ghost hunting.
Hence, these research findings
emphasise that the moon phase is not qualified to be the best
reference in ghost hunting especially when it involves ghost hunting
in Malaysia that is located at the lower latitude.
