Q: What is a poltergeist?
A: A poltergeist is activity that mimics a ghost, but is caused by severe emotional energy generated by a teenager (usually a teenage girl). I have actually been on three cases with Inspired Ghost Tracking of Maryland that involved poltergeist activity that we've explained that way. Once the teenage girls got some therapy in those houses, the "ghostly" activity ceased!
Q: I was under the impression that poltergeists were intelligent hauntings as evil entities. Is that incorrect?
A: No. Poltergeists are not intelligent haunts. They're just energy.
Ghosts can be intelligent (interactive) or residual (thumbprints or impressions that don't interact and answer questions). They can also be good or evil - all depending on their personality when they were alive.
Q: Is a poltergeist activity always caused by a teenager?
A: Poltergeist activity is always caused by a teenager or a highly emotional person - it's basically energy that mimics ghostly activity.
Q: I'm confused - So it's not a possession or an evil entity?
|A true cause of poltergeist activity|
It's not a possession, and it's not it's own entity.
It's energy that makes things happen.
It's like turning on a lightbulb and generating heat and light.
Q: What happened on your investigations?

Of course, I grew up with two brothers, so I never experienced it in my youth. :)
