I thought it would be interesting to talk about haunted objects from a personal point of view. You can read about lots of haunted objects and can watch videos about them which some are pretty awesome and downright scary.
I have a haunted collection as well. I have been collecting and studying haunted objects for about 15 years and each one of them have their own story.
The majority of my haunted collections are dolls. I know that dolls tend to creep people out more than most types of haunted objects but my dolls are really not very creepy looking. Most of them are quite attractive porcelain dolls. They just have a little extra something that comes with them; a little extra someone I should say.
One of my haunted dolls is Debra. She is the doll in the picture above. Debra came to me from an antique shop several states away. The owner of the shop and this haunted doll’s entity’s energy just seemed to clash. The shop owner said she was used to having haunted occurrences but for some reason, Debra made her feel very uncomfortable. The shop owner also told me that she used to hear noises coming from the fire escape and the doll itself seemed to move a little one direction or another. She felt like the doll was looming over her all the time and this would just freak her out.
I learned some very interesting things about this doll, even on the first day of it’s arrival. Every time I get a new haunted object, I always give it the rules of the house. If I don't, sometimes they do things that can be quite upsetting as they may try to convey messages to you through sights, sounds, smells, etc. but that can lead to a panic - especially if you think your house is burning down but it was just the entity trying to let you know how they died - as one of my other haunted items' inhabitants did on the first day it arrived.
After explaining the house rules to this new doll, I asked her name. I did this psychically. As soon as i took her out of her package, I felt her presence. She does have a rather strong, staring type of presence about her. She told me her name was Debra. Then, in a very strict manner, she informed me not to call her Debbie. Well, that was a nice greeting. I introduced myself and examined her vessel more carefully. I put her on a table and took some time to observe her. It was only a matter of minutes when I barely noticed that it appeared her clothing was moving. I went closer and it looked like her chest was moving - as if she was breathing. It didn't last long - perhaps ten seconds or less. My husband was going to be home from work shortly after that happened and my haunted objects made him nervous so I tried to keep them where he couldn't see them for his sake.
I brought Debra up to my oldest daughters room to ask if I could keep her there until I found the perfect place for the doll. My daughter is a lot like me as she shares the love for the paranormal. I supposed it was only about ten minutes that she called me up to her room. She told me that the entity that possess the doll told her that her name was Debra but not to call her Debbie. I laughed and told her that was the same thing she told me. She also informed me that Debra's vessel breathes and that freaked her out a bit. Needless to say, my daughter didn't really want to keep Debra in her room much longer. I promised I'd find a new place for her before the end of the night.
I took the time to communicate with Debra because I was trying to find out more about her, what her story was - and see if I could find a place in the house where she would be comfortable. Turns out she really enjoys music - same as me. She requested to be placed on my piano. The only issue with that is my piano was in my living room so my husband would be constantly freaked out. I tried to put her in the dining room because my husband rarely went in there and it was still pretty close to my piano so I figured everything would be fine like that. It seemed to work for my husband but it didn't take Debra long to let me know that she wasn't so happy in the spot that I choose for her. She certainly made a fuss stirring up some havoc in the house so she was actually better off on my piano. She got what she wanted.
Don't take me wrong, Debra is not a bad, harmful, or evil ghost as all. She is just a very serious entity that isn't very open to friendship or closeness but she does live in harmony with my family and the pets in my home. She also gets along well with the other spirits in the house. I have had several friends that have come to visit and witnessed Debra breathe but it is a phenomenon that really freaks them out. Sometimes I think Debra enjoys that.
Debra does like to give you very intense feelings of being watched; especially when you are heading upstairs for the night. You feel like she is right there, just about ready to grab you. If you turn your head back to look at her - you can almost feel that her head would be turned in your direction watching you but it isn't. Debra is in a metal stand so she can be upright and that stand does move over time. I put powder around her stand and over time, the powder line is broken. I thought perhaps her position changed due to vibrations but the other items on my piano stay put. She is pretty quiet for the most part but if someone seems to be disrespectful, she usually does not hesitate to let them know it isn't appreciated.
This picture above is Debra as she is right now. We moved to a new home within this past year and she is now proudly situated on top of my stereo out in my living room where she seems to be pretty happy. She is watching me as I'm typing this - I suppose she wants to know what I am saying about her.
If you would like me to post about another of my haunted objects or have any questions - please email me or comment. If you or someone you know has an item that you feel may be haunted and need to get rid of it, you can also email me.
