Ghosts & Hauntings

Parents terrified after seeing a ghostly face next to their baby’s crib

Have you ever seen or heard a ghost? Many people say that there are ghosts in their homes, which appear in any room and at any time of the day. And the reality is that there are ghostly apparitions in all places, from old houses, new houses, forests, cemeteries, offices or restaurants.

Sometimes, these appearances are caused by tragic death, or due to residual energy, or simply are not ready to move on to the next life. But whatever the reason, they exist. But if we have to talk about terrifying experiences with ghosts, are those related to strange noises and whispers in videos, psychophonies and even appearances in baby monitors.

New mothers have many worries, and even more so if a ghost harasses their child. Unfortunately, there are many cases of ghostly voices recorded in baby monitors . And terrified mothers have two options: ignore the sound or investigate and try to find a solution. But what would you do if instead of listening to the voice of a ghost you saw it? We do not know, but some parents have been terrified to see a strange presence by the cradle of his son.

The ghostly face

The video, published on Reddit , shows a child moving in his crib late at night. At first nothing strange, but if we look better you can see something really disturbing. In the background, just behind the baby, there is a spooky face, similar to the face of a girl.

“This is the moment when concerned parents installed a camera to monitor their child and were surprised when they watched the video” , says the description that accompanies the video. “The images show the child moving in the crib late at night. But if we look better we see a disturbing truth. In the background there seems to be a spooky object that looks like a face. It does not move through the video, but the images are cut before we know what happened to the child. “

 

The terrible paranormal experiences of the family

After the publication on social networks, the mother explained the story behind the video. According to its version, the recording corresponds to the afternoon. But the phenomena began in September 2016, after suffering a miscarriage. On the night of the abortion, her other 18-month-old son had an electronic toy. Since then, his son’s toys were inexplicably ignited , talking and singing. And it did not matter if the batteries were worn out, they just went to work.

However, this has not been the only supernatural incident that parents have experienced. The mother assures to listen regularly to the cable of the lamp in her room moving and hitting against the back of her bedside table.

“We do not have mice and I can not think of any logical explanation of why this is happening,”explains Melanie Meez, the baby’s mother, on Reddit. “The last time I heard it was the night of the video right after I got into bed.”

Also about two months ago he heard a repeat of beats as if it were Morse code in the middle of the living room during the night. It was strong enough for parents to come down to see what it was. But he stopped when they entered the room. They were in the room for about 30 seconds and they heard the strange noise again. It sounded like a fingernail hitting a plastic with no pattern or rhythm . It lasted about 20 seconds and the sound came a few meters away from where they were standing and it seemed to come from the wooden stairs. They had never heard that noise before or heard it again.

And there’s more, as last week the lid of his son’s cup fell into the sink for no apparent reason. Her husband decided to place two empty cups of their children with their caps near the sink. When they returned, they were all inside the sink.

“I’m just a mom with two great kids. I have always looked for logic in situations and it seems that I can not explain what happens in our house “ , concludes the mother.

Debate on social networks

No doubt it is a video and a really scary story. And as such, it has had some repercussion in social networks. Believers in the paranormal have different opinions, some believe that it may be the ghost of an unborn child protecting what should have been his brother , while others suggest that it is an evil entity harassing the child, so Parents should seek help from a professional in the field.

But skeptics have another opinion about the incident. If it is not a video edition, then there could be a lot of objects or toys that could create that effect . Although what they do not take into account are the experiences of this poor family, which could be a victim of some kind of negative entity. But of course, for them that is the least important thing.

What is the mysterious face that you see in the video? Is it some kind of entity? Or can it be a mundane object creating an optical effect?

Guitar store CCTV captures ghostly activity

A still from the footage (can be viewed below).

A store selling musical instruments in Brighton, UK has been gaining something of a haunted reputation.

The mysterious occurrences began at the Guitar, Amp and Keyboard store (or GAK) last month and culminated in an incident that happened just a few weeks ago in the early hours of the morning.

The store owners became aware that something was amiss when the motion alarm was triggered at around 5am despite there being no indication of a break-in.

After checking the CCTV footage, they noticed that two of the guitars hanging up in the store had started to swing on their own even though the other guitars next to them had remained still.

Around 30 minutes later, a price tag was also mysteriously ripped from one of the shelves.

“Some say it could be the guitars re-adjusting themselves after they were hanged incorrectly, but there is no wind there and it’s not near any draft or ventilation so there aren’t many suggestions,” the owners told The Daily Star.

“Staff think it’s odd and a bit creepy but it hasn’t affected anyone coming in.”

Ghosts & Hauntings

Apparitions Are Intelligent Ghosts

Parapsychologists have classified different types of apparitions based on documented witnesses’ accounts. Experiences with these entities support survival theory.

The most popular collective generic term for parapsychological phenomena is “ghosts.” Scientific investigators of “ghostly” occurrences have found activity can be attributed to one of the following phenomena.

Poltergeists are created by psychokinesis (PK), the ability of the mind to influence matter. The most common phenomena are rappings and other sounds, objects moving and electronics and electrical equipment being affected. There can be fires, water appearing or writings on walls, but these activities are rare. The agent can be a human or an entity.

Hauntings can be seen, heard, felt by touch, smelled, tasted and sensed. There is no intelligence. This is theorized to be energy imprinted on time and space.

The difference between hauntings and apparitions is that the latter have intelligence. According to survival theory, these are that part of the human which survives the death of the physical body. They can appear to experients while they are awake, sleep or in an altered state of consciousness.

Classifications of Apparitions

The Dead: Usually they appear to someone who was close to them in life and try to communicate information or comfort in times of grief or sadness. James L. Chaffin in the Chaffin Will Case: Apparition’s Appearance Prevented North … appeared to his son to tell him where his new will was.

Crisis: Their purpose is to convey that fact that they are in severe trauma. Most are dying or have just died. Admiral’s Ghost Tells his Death is an example of this. Vice Admiral George Tyron visited his wife’s tea party in London while he was dying or had died in a shipwreck off of the coast of Syria.

Collective: These are seen by more than one person, as in the case of Admiral Tyron. Sometimes apparitions can be animals. Three women saw Fluffy, a cat’s apparition rush into the room. Kitty, the living cat, wasn’t in the house at the time, but when he came inside and was put into the kitchen, he immediately reacted to Fluffy’s presence. Animal Psychic Phenomena describes the incident.

Deathbed: When some are dying, they see loved ones, angels or holy beings shortly before the moment of death. A man was dying and, several hours before he did, saw his Uncle Charlie and spoke with him until he died. This has also been reported in NDEs, near death experiences.

Reciprocal: These are apparitions of the living when both the experient and agent are aware of each other. The agent feels transported to where the percipient is. This may be experienced by more than one observer. Mrs. Wilmot was the agent in An Apparition of the Living.

Theories About Apparitions

Survival: What the experient witnessed was a spirit of the dead with intelligence.

Misperception: The experience was due to mistakenly experiencing that which are distortions caused by the physical environment, such as dim light, or by emotional influences.

Hallucinations: These are defined as perceiving something without a stimulus. It is one of the criteria for schizophrenia, although it can happen in other psychiatric disorders. There are physical conditions and substances that can induce hallucinations.

When investigating cases of alleged apparitions, it’s of utmost importance to take all theories into consideration, not to discount the possibility of a hoax or fraud and that accounts are mostly subjective.

Ghosts & Hauntings

Horror movies love a haunted doll. So do collectors.

Thirty years ago, the world was introduced to a 29-inch-tall doll in overalls named Chucky. With eyes bluer than a White Walker’s, hair more fiery than Ed Sheeran’s, and a smattering of freckles à la Emma Stone, he looked like the perfect childhood buddy.

Unfortunately, Chucky, the tiny antagonist of the 1988 movie Child’s Play, was possessed by a serial killer with a knack for slaughtering people with butcher knives, yo-yo strings, and anything else he could find around the house. Today, almost everyone knows that if a wild-eyed doll asks, “Wanna play?” the only acceptable response is to run as fast and far as you can.

Then there are people like Kevin Cain, a paranormal investigator in Alabama who owns hundreds of haunted dolls and other items. “I lost count a long time ago,” he says. While Cain may be an especially prolific collector, he’s far from the only one. In fact, there is a thriving marketplace for haunted dolls on the internet.

According to Cain, things really took off after the Annabelle doll appeared in The Conjuring (2013), followed by a solo film, Annabelle: Creation (2017). Annabelle, a vintage porcelain doll with smeared lipstick, a cracked pupil, and claw marks on her face, is possessed by a demonic spirit that enjoys ruthlessly murdering people. That she’s based on a real-life haunted Raggedy Ann doll adds to the intrigue.

With the next installment of the Conjuring series, Annabelle Comes Home, and a reboot of Child’s Play both hitting theaters in late June, there’s sure to be a new wave of people curious about haunted dolls — and perhaps even eager to get their hands on one.

Gone are the days when you’d have to trek to a shady part of town, down a darkened alley, and into a questionable-looking antiques shop to get your haunted doll fix (although if you’re ever in New Orleans, Bloody Mary’s Haunted Museum and Spirit Shop is worth a visit). Etsy and eBay list thousands of dolls purportedly inhabited by everything from evil witches to judgmental spirits that might call you fat to young children and fairy spirits.

Most haunted dolls sell for around $50 plus shipping, but the most highly prized ones are priced well into the four figures. There’s a formula, too, for how they’re sold: Each listing contains a detailed overview of the spirit’s life story, details of said spirit’s death, and a description of their personality. Dolls are labeled “active” or “highly active” if paranormal phenomena are said to occur frequently in their vicinity.

Some are advertised as being able to move objects, make noises, or communicate via telepathy or Ouija board, while others are meant to act as creative muses, play matchmaker by revealing potential lovers in dreams, or emit positive energy.

Kat Blowers, whose Etsy shop FugitiveKatCreations specializes in haunted dolls, says best-sellers tend to be inhabited by female spirits that have some sort of “empowerment” angle. “We have a lot of goddess-type spirits or women who have survived terrible situations and thrived.” She also sees high demand for witches around Halloween and leprechauns near St. Patrick’s Day.

While there are con artists looking to take advantage of uneducated buyers, many haunted item purveyors hold themselves to what they see as high ethical and scientific standards. “It costs us a fortune in tools,” says Blowers. Whenever she acquires a new doll, Blowers and her husband put it through an intense investigation that lasts one to three months.

First, the doll is separated from any other paranormal objects in the house. Then it’s examined with a K-II EMF meter, a device used by paranormal investigators to detect electromagnetic energy, for a period of three to five days. Blowers then places the doll in a sound box (“basically a foam box”), with a voice-activated recorder to see if she can hear any words or phrases. “We’ve heard music before, which is really weird,” she tells me.

Finally, they conduct lucid dreaming sessions, which involve sleeping next to the doll alongside a piece of amethyst (which is supposed to be a potent lucid dreaming crystal) to see if they have any weird dreams. Blowers typically ends up with a 15-page report by the end of each investigation.

Unlike in horror films, real-life haunted dolls aren’t necessarily bloodthirsty beings with a penchant for sharp objects. “Not everything is evil,” says Cain. “Yes, there are demons, and Annabelle is example number one of that, but also good spirits. If a ghost can haunt a house or building or ship, why can’t it just hang around an item it once owned or reminds them of something in their past?” He theorizes that spirits like to hang around dolls and other toys because of their familiarity and strong emotional connection.

However, this doesn’t mean buyers shouldn’t beware. Cain routinely refuses people who email begging to purchase one of his haunted dolls. “I tell them it’s not for everybody. You don’t know what you’re asking for,” he says. “These dolls aren’t for entertainment or fun. These are actual haunted items with spirits attached who want to be respected. Then you have those who, if you’re not careful, are demonic and ready to tear into your soul.”

He describes an episode where a young woman bought a doll online that was supposed to be haunted by a kind, positive spirit, but she ended up with something dark and malevolent. After a string of strange occurrences culminating in feeling tiny hands around her neck one night, she contacted Cain and shipped the doll off to him. Luckily, he knew how to bind the demonic spirit, ultimately sealing the doll in a box coated in holy water and storing it on the highest shelf in his home, where it remains.

Demons aside, selling haunted dolls online comes with some technical challenges. For one thing, eBay isn’t too keen on the whole concept and has a policy that specifically forbids the selling of souls. According to a statement from the company back in 2000, “eBay does not allow the auctioning of human souls for the following reasons: If the soul does not exist, eBay could not allow the auctioning of the soul because there would be nothing to sell. However, if the soul does exist then, in accordance with eBay’s policy on human parts and remains, we would not allow the auctioning of human souls.” In 2012, eBay further banned metaphysical items including spells, hexes, potions, and magical services.

Some sellers found creative workarounds, including winking claims that their dolls are “for entertainment purposes only” or “sold as is.” They also often state there’s no guarantee of paranormal activity and indemnify themselves from the consequences of anything that does or doesn’t happen. Others, deterred by eBay’s crackdown, simply packed up and moved to Etsy.

The haunted doll market certainly isn’t disappearing anytime soon. Cain expects there’ll be a huge surge in demand this summer thanks to Annabelle and Chucky’s big-screen appearances — something he’s not particularly thrilled about. For anyone considering a haunted doll purchase, he has one message: “Be careful what you buy. It may be phony — or, worse yet, it may be something demonic.”
