Is it bad or immoral to look into paranormal things or other beings?

**Background:**I am 16 years old and I am fully devoted to the lordship of Jesus Christ. He is my savior! BUT; I have a fascination of looking up things such as guardian angel sightings, ghost sightings, shadow people etc. Also people who have had near death experiences and have gone to heaven and/or hell and back to Earth. I have also looked into such demonic beings and encounters or testimony’s of other people after finding out my own mother was once attacked when she was 16. I always pray before, during and after reading things about demons though. I am just honestly intrigued and fascinated about the spiritual beings and the afterlife. I don’t think I am obsessed or anything. I would greatly appreciate the opinion of a man or women of God.

**Question:**I just want to know if it is wrong to do what I do. Also, I want to know if it’s possible to accidentally open a window for spirits (evil & good) to get to me. That is not what I want I’m just purely interested.
