A quick search on Ebay pulls up over 100 supposedly haunted objects for sale. Of course, most of these objects are just regular items someone added the word ‘haunted’ to with the hopes of making a quick buck. Dolls, paintings, jewelry and antiques are frequently said to be potentially haunted. But can an object really be haunted?
This is a question that’s nearly impossible to answer because there’s no way to verify whether a haunting is being caused by an object or something else. Right now, all we have is the theory that a deceased person’s spirit might return to the things that were important to them during their life.
I have heard instances of paranormal activity beginning or increasing after someone acquired a certain object. I do believe it’s a possibility. But I also believe that truly haunted objects are rare and it’s usually not wise to go searching them out. Spirits can have a negative affect on the people they encounter. People sometimes claim to feel angry or depressed after encountering a ghost, and you don’t really want to bring that kind of energy into your home. Plus, you will likely just end up just wasting your money.
Have you every owned an object you thought was haunted or known someone with a haunted object?
