Choosing a K-II meter for ghost hunting activities can be a challenging task. This is especially true if you are new to researching the paranormal. In the third season of the popular television show “Ghost Hunters”, individuals within the viewing range of the program were introduced to this particular device when the two men who own “The Atlantic Paranormal Society”, or “TAPS” for short discovered that they can use the tool to pick up on fields of energy that are believed to be spirits in a particular area, as well as to communicate with those on the spiritual plane. Since the airing of this particular show, the K-II meter has become one of the most sought after devices with those that take an avid interest in searching for life after death. Here, I will provide you with information related to choosing a K-II meter for ghost hunting.
The K-II meter is a device that works to pick up on fields that are considered to be electromagnetic. Paranormal researchers believe that each spirit is composed of a specific type of “energy”. In most homes, businesses, and even in the environment, there are normal ranges of energy that are considered to be electromagnetic, but most of the levels in a particular area will remain constant. The K-II meter picks up on inconsistencies in these levels, often showing them to go higher in range. For the ghost hunter, this typically indicates that there is the possibility that a “ghost” or a “spirit” is near, emitting the energy.
Naturally, the true ghost hunter will attempt to debunk the apparent possibility that there is a spirit near if the K-II meter shows an inconsistency in a certain area. There are many different explanations for why a meter may show higher results in certain areas than others. Wiring, grounded pipe, appliances, fuse boxes, electrical lines, and similar items may emit strong electromagnetic fields. If these are ruled out, and there is no logical explanation that is scientific based to conclude why the K-II meter is exhibiting a higher frequency than average, the ghost hunter will look to a paranormal explanation.
If you have a K-II meter as a ghost hunter and have debunked to the point that you feel as if you may be experiencing a spirit firsthand, you can use the tool to communicate with the dead. The team on “Ghost Hunters” will often ask “yes” and “no” questions, and other types of similar questions, while requesting that the spirit answer by making the lights on the tool to flash a certain number of times, and to varying degrees of strength. If you are looking to gather evidence of a particular haunting, this can be a very effective tool. Here, I will describe some things that should be considered when choosing a K-II meter for ghost hunting.
The first thing that you will want to consider is the budget that you have to devote to the purchase of your meter. While you can typically purchase a K-II meter for $100 or under, many ghost hunters may prefer to go with something a little less expensive. If this is the case, you will want to choose a simple EMF detector instead of the K-II. However, for the sake of sound evidence and possibly even to document what you believe to be accurate findings, the K-II is more appropriate. Once you have determined how much you can spend, you are ready to move on to the next step.
Now, it is time to choose your meter! It is often quite difficult to find these devices in a local department store. However, they can be found at several home improvement stores and even ghost hunting specialty stores. If you like, you can also visit several websites online that carry these types of tools. You can do a simple online search for “K-II meter”, “K2 meter”, or “KII meter”. These keywords are sure to yield high results that can be beneficial in finding the right meter for you!
When browsing through the many meters that are available, it is best to ensure that you purchase one that does not require you to hold down a button. You should purchase one that turns on and stays on. These will automatically pick up electromagnetic fields and are more convenient when it comes to paranormal research studies. Once you find this meter, you will be ready to make your purchase. When you get home and take the meter out of the box, be sure to read all instructions that come with it so that you can make good use of it. By doing these steps, you can go about choosing a K-II meter for ghost hunting with ease!
