Those of us with a penchant for antique furniture occasionally find ourselves in possession of a troubled object. Old furniture has touched many lives, some so deeply that that life energy becomes as much a part of the furniture as the wood and fabric itself. This usually poses a problem for future owners: A haunted object seldom brings but negative energy into a home.
There are many questions to ask yourself if you suspect that you are the owner of a haunted object. Reflect on the time since you brought the object into your home. Is there a feeling of unease around the home that wasn’t there before? Has your luck changed for the worse? Have you had electrical problems? Is the area around the object colder than the rest of the room? A yes to these suggest that you have a haunted object.
Animals are famously sensitive to the presence of spirits. If you have cats or dogs, think of how they act around the object in question. Does the cat whine or hiss at it? Does the dog bark or growl at it? Does the animal go out of its way to avoid the vicinity of the object? These behaviors suggest that the object could be haunted.
To confirm that you have a piece of haunted furniture, it is best to consult a psychic. You might think it best to divulge the minute details of the situation to the psychic, but this is actually unnecessary. A psychic works best when he or she has little information to go on when beginning a case. Simply let the psychic have a look around your home; let him or her intuitively zero in on the object creating the disturbances through psychic readings.
Once the object is determined to be haunted, it is best to do a blessing ceremony to cleanse the object. If this fails to clear the negative energy, it is best to get rid of, or even destroy, the object. Your psychic friend can help you with this.
Before making an antique purchase, be it of a home or of a chair, consider a psychic consultation–that is, unless you like the thought of being haunted! For more information about psychics and psychic readings make sure to check out the society for psychical research.
