Investigations... 'In my skin'...

Everyone has their own unique approach(es) to how they investigate, and I’m no different.   I do approach each with a similar process as the one before, but when it comes to personal experiences that are 100% my own, I have to say, there are a couple.  And, to be honest, I don’t really acknowledge, or even remember them, until they remind me they’re a part of my investigation experience.

Alright, so what are they?  I’ll tell you.  The first thing that happens in investigation environments is, my mouth gets really dry.  I haven’t figured out why this is, and haven’t ruled out the merits of the actual environments themselves, but the fact remains, there are certain places where it takes me by complete surprise that my mouth becomes very very dry.  I actually mentioned this to a fellow investigator one day, and they noticed the same thing about themselves.  It’s because of this aspect of my investigation experience that I usually carry hard candy and bottled water with me at all times.

The other completely personal experience I have, which I haven’t ever heard of anyone else having, is usually followed up by some sort of unusual happening.  The event itself is this weird feeling I get, as if the floor thumps beneath my feet. It’s the best way I can explain it.  It’s almost as if I was floating for a second and then I land on the floor with a “thump”.  It’s quite bizarre, but it’s a distinct occurrence and I only ever notice it during investigations.  So if it’s happening at any other time in my life, it’s news to me because I never noticed.

At first I thought it was just a natural result from standing in one spot too long.  Maybe my depth perception became skewed and when I regained a certain amount of balance I had lost, this thumping sensation would happen.  But the more “weird” events which took place directly after this ‘unique’ personal experience of mine, the more I began to notice that the 2 events happened in a type of joint manner with each other. They don’t happen all the time, but when they do, I like to pay closer attention to the events that unfold directly after, because it’s happened a noticeable amount of times – I’ve gotten EVPs or had a shared experience with other team members regarding an observation, or something similar.

Everyone has their own personal experiences during investigations, or things they prep for – anticipating will happen at an upcoming investigation, so that leaves me with the question; what about you?
