In the PI-Team’s Bylaws, under objectives is our number one goal:
To aid and assist those who are experiencing paranormal phenomenon by looking for authentic evidence of the paranormal and offering assistance in cases where paranormal activity is confirmed.
We are not just another group who goes out looking for thrills and excitement, our number one goal is to help people. We get many requests from people who are scared of what they’re experiencing, or who just want some form of outside validation. Sometimes they just have questions they want to ask, other times they want us to review pictures they’ve taken, or listen to audio clips they’ve captured. And often, they want us to investigation their location.
Sometimes, while it happens very rarely, we are unable to offer our assistance.
When We Can’t Help
As much as we’d like to assist every individual who contacts us, sometimes that isn’t possible. There are numerous reasons for that — distance, time, other commitments, and activity outside the realm of our abilities. It’s frustrating for us, and we know it can be especially frustrating for those who are dealing with paranormal activity. That’s why we’ve put together a list of alternatives. These are suggestions only.
Neither The PI Team nor any of its members take responsibility for the actions of persons or organizations outside of our group.
TAKING BACK YOUR HOME
What has worked best for us over the years is to simply “take back” your space. The best way to do this is to forcibly tell the entity to get out. Don’t be timid with your demands. This is your home or place of business, and whoever is there needs to recognize that. Be firm, be loud, and if necessary, be angry. You have to let the spirit know you mean business. A lot of people worry that this type of action might make matters worse, but in ten years of doing this, we’ve never seen that happen. We have seen activity either slow down tremendously, or stop altogether. Remember that the spirit can’t hurt you; it can scare you, but we’ve never known anyone to be seriously injured by a ghost.
CONTACT ANOTHER TEAM
Click on the TAPS Family link on our homepage to see if there is another TAPS Family team close to you. It takes a lot of work and experience to becomes a TAPS Family Member, so you can be assured you will be in good hands no matter which TFM you contact. If you you’d like a recommendation, feel free to contact us. We’d be glad to forward your information to another TAPS team.
There are also some good teams right here in Utah, such as the Utah Researchers of Paranormal Activity (UROPA). We were impressed with their skills and, more importantly, their level of professionalism.
KEEP A JOURNAL
Keep a journal to log in the activity. Include dates, times, who is in the house, weather, etc. This might help you find a pattern from which further information can be extracted.
Although we've never known a blessing or cleansing to help for more than a week or two, some people find comfort in contacting their local religious leaders for help.
