What questions do you ask Spirits?

The Investigators at Alaska Ghost Hunting start out every "EVP" session with introducing each other before we ask any questions. We also explain the equipment we’re using and how it works before starting into the questions. The red light is the recorder, what the KII meter will do if they get close and explain to them that we may not be able to hear their answers till later and to speak as loudly and clearly as possible. We also let them know that if we hear anything from them we will return to communicate with them further. At the end of the session we thank them for their time and be sure to say goodbye and then wait a few minutes for a possible response.

One of the things we try to do is include the Spirits in a conversation but keep the questions to the Spirits simple so the answers should be only one or two words long. We believe it takes a lot of energy for a ghost to answer these questions so we need to keep them as simple as possible. We also try to allow 15 seconds or so in between questions to give a spirit time to gather energy to answer.

Here are some of the questions we ask:

Is there anyone here that would like to talk to us?
Can you tell us your name?
How old are you?
Why are you here?
Are you sad or angry?
Are you alone?
How many of you are here?
What is your favorite color?
Do you know what year it is? If so, please tell me/us.
Can you tell us what happened to you?
Can you see us?
What do we look like?
What color is your hair?
Do you know my name?
Would you like us to leave?
Is there any way that we can help you?
Can you show us what you look like?
Is someone keeping you here?
Are you afraid where you are?
Do you have anything to tell us?
