The ghost fanatic said she got into spirits in 2008 after she moved into a “haunted” house.
Kim describes herself as “pretty logical and skeptical” but believes “there’s sometimes things you experience that you have no other explanation for”.
She said: “The first thing we do if someone thinks they’re having paranormal activity is, using an EMF (electromagnetic field) meter, I determine if there’s an electrical issue in the house.
“One of the people with us said she felt like there was a little girl holding her hand”
“If you don’t have an EMF meter to detect these different electromagnetic waves, then there are apps that have that built in.
“One of the apps is made by Laxton Ghosts; they’re some researchers out of Sweden.
“That app has several tools in it, and I find that one useful because it’s built by genuine researchers and not people who are just trying to have fun or make an app that’s kind of a joke.”
BooBuddy bear comes dressed in an uncanny boiler suit and glows red if it detects electric fields.
Kim said: “We were standing out in the middle of the woods of this mining village and the bear’s belly starts glowing red.
“We ruled out that there was anything electrical around to cause it to do that.
“One of the people with us said she felt like there was a little girl holding her hand.
“We’ve used that some but not with a lot of luck — at least not yet. But it does seem to attract childlike spirits.”
There are also “spirit box” apps that play white noise which ghosts can use to “communicate real-time”.
Kim said: “The theory goes that spirits can manipulate that white noise to communicate with us — real-time, where we can hear them.
“My favourite spirit box app that I’m using right now is SonoX10, which is one of those apps that just has a sound bank; there’s also a SonoX12 for people on Android.”
Kim added that sometimes she explains to spirits she wants to chat with “how to use all the various equipment”.
“Some of my friends would kind of giggle at me because I felt the need to do this,” she said.
“Supposedly once you’ve passed on and you’re on the other side, you’re kind of all-knowing and you don’t need those explanations, but I still explain it anyway.”
