Beware of the Unseen: How to spot a haunted object

You might feel something is off with an item at home. Since you brought it home from the thrift shop, things have started to go sideways – stained relationships and overall bad luck. You get a strange feeling of being watched when you pass by it. Can it be that the item is possessed?

As a general rule, possessed objects are not recognized by science. However, many paranormal investigators, clergy, and shamans swear by their existence. Feelings of unease near the object identify the possessed item. Pendulums and dowsing rods might move erratically near the object.

Some objects just give you the creeps. Everytime you move near your hair on your arms stand up and you might feel nausea or dizziness. If you feel strange vibes from an object, it might be a great idea to look into attachments or curses.

Identifying a possessed item

First of all, let’s get things clear. There are not scientific evidence that possessed items is real. However, many paranormal investigators, clergy, and shamans swear that they do exist.

There can be many signs of possession of items. Most possessed are antiques, thrift items, dolls, jewelry, mirrors, clocks, and personal items. If you just bought a second-hand item and things start to feel weird, checking if they are cursed or possessed might be a great idea.

Most paranormal investigators don’t think that items or objects can be possessed – only humans and animals. In everyday life, objects with attachments is often referred to as being “possessed.” We will label is as such going forward, even if it probably is attachments we are talking about.

Important: Never label anything paranormal before all natural causes are ruled out. Please consult a professional health provider if you are struggling with health or mental issues or think a demon possesses you. Find international suicide prevention helplines hereOpens in a new tab..

Common traits of possessed possessions

There are many signs of possessions of objects. Many are subtle; your gut feeling is the first sign to tell you something is off.

You might feel funky, fearful, anxious, and stressed about the item. If you’re worried that you might have a possessed item, there are a few signs you can look out for.

Pay attention to any unusual activity surrounding the object. Do you hear strange noises or notice unexplainable movements around it? This could be a sign that there’s something supernatural going on.

Another thing to watch out for is sudden changes in the atmosphere of the room where the object is located. You may feel a sudden drop in temperature or a sense of unease or fear when you’re near it. These are all indications that something is amiss.

If you have a EVP recorder you might get strange recordings near the object. In some cases, they might respond to questions showing that there is an intelligent haunting. The same goes with EMF meters. They are known to spike near objects with attachments or “possessions.”

I tend to check for possessions by using my pendulum. I hold in near the object and check for strange and irratic movements. Everything that seem unnatural is a sign that something is going on with the object.

You can use a pair of dowsing rods as well. If they move in a strange pattern as spinning violently or other unnatural patterns, it can be a sign that there might be an attachment to the object.

  1. Place your pendulum near the object and look for strange or erratic movements.
  2. Hold a pair of dowsing rods near the object and look for strange movements
  3. Take an EVP and ask the object questions.
  4. Check the items for EMF spikes.

It could be possessed if you have a particular item that seems to bring you bad luck or misfortune. Have you noticed that things tend to go wrong when you’re near or after interacting with it? This could be a warning sign.

Finally, trust your intuition. If you feel something is off about an object, it’s worth investigating further.

Cursed objects

Different cultures and belief systems may have various interpretations and manifestations of curses. Curses differ from possessions, as they are not demonic but charged with black magic through occult practices. It is good to remember that spells are not recognized by science.

In some belief systems, common signs of a cursed object may include a string of bad luck or misfortune associated with the object. You might also experience strange or unexplainable events when the object is present.

It is common feeling a sense of unease or discomfort around the object is expected. A general sense of negative energy or aura emanating from the object, and there is something “off” with the vibe of the object overall.

However, it is essential to note that many of these signs can also be explained by natural or psychological factors. It is essential to approach claims of curses critically and be aware of the potential harm of belief in supernatural phenomena without sufficient evidence.

If you are experiencing any concerns or distress related to an object, seeking professional advice from a mental health practitioner or another relevant expert is recommended.
