We head Down Under to talk with Aussie paranormal investigation educator Beth Luscombe of Access Paranormal on After Hours AM/America’s Most Haunted Radio, Thursdays 9-11pE with hosts Joel Sturgis and Eric Olsen. We’ll bone up on investigation tools and techniques with BEth in the 10pE hour; at 9pE, Joel and Eric will scan the week’s hot paranormal news for tasty and tantalizing tales.
Beth Luscombe is a lively and passionate Australian paranormal investigator, speaker, researcher, event coordinator, and paranormal journalist, and producer of the Access ParaCast.. Her ambition is to provide relevant and actionable educational information for paranormal investigators around the globe through online learning. Beth has been investigating the paranormal for almost ten years, both as a member of a paranormal team and as an independent investigator. In that time she has figured out how to get started, what you need to know, and the best tools and resources.
Beth’s passion for the paranormal stems to as far back as she can remember. Premonitions and objects seemingly moving on their own fascinated her. In 2007 she decided to move to the UK to work and travel for two years. She loved it, finding the paranormal field to be much larger and more established there. She began to seriously investigate with paranormal groups based in London, notably the London Paranormal Society. She investigated London Dungeons, Middleton Hall, Winston Churchill War Rooms, London Tombs, Eastbury Manor, Valentines Manor, and, one of the most active she has come across, the Ragged School Museum.
When Beth arrived back to Australia in 2009 she was… well… really disappointed. There was NOWHERE you could investigate in a public location like she had in the UK, nor could she find any information about Australian paranormal events. Luckily, with interest growing, the paranormal field has grown in Australia. So, she thought, “Yeah, I need to create something… a website… somewhere so others can find this information because I can’t be the only one. Right?” And that is why Access Paranormal was started. Since then she has investigated additional locations around the world such as Prospect Place, Waverley Hills Sanatorium, and The Queen Mary. Beth is also a fully qualified first aider, mental health first aider, she holds training and development qualifications, and is currently a student of the School of Parapsychology.
Getting started with Access Paranormal investigator tools:
Are you really not letting your beliefs about the afterlife affect how you investigate the paranormal? Knowing that we need to be as “neutral” as possible. Confirmation Bias is the most common issue investigators deal with. So how would you know this is happening to you? In this module we cover this and how to be more aware of when it happens to others.
