Singing For Spirit
When I was researching for I Heard Your Voice, as well as attending a paranormal investigation, I spent a lot of time watching paranormal entertainment shows such as Ghost Hunters and Most Haunted. I noticed early on that a large part of these investigations involved attempting to provoke or encourage paranormal activity.
I’m not a fan of “provoking” activity, by which I mean aggressively insulting or challenging spirits. However, I was quite surprised at just how much “encouragement” was required. Foolishly I had assumed that ghosts were much like people and behaved fairly unpredictably. Instead, investigators would spend minutes at a time calling out, imploring spirits to make themselves known, and would say things like “We managed to get the glass moving” or “We usually get the table spinning” as though paranormal activity was just a matter of effort on the part of the team.
Which led me to the concept of mediumistic rituals, and the idea that my heroine Tamar Steele – who is a sensitive, rather than a medium – would discover that she could attract spirits by singing.
A lot of mediums have “opening up” and “closing down” routines. I’m not aware of any who sing as a way of opening up, but in Tamar’s case it works – the first time she sings, she does so to soothe herself, thereby making herself relaxed and more open to her surroundings. For someone who is already sensitive to spirit, this could easily be a way of intensifying that ability.
Assuming they can sing, of course – although it might also be a way of getting ghosts to throw things at you.
