Paranormal Phenomena/Religious Object


Hi William,
About a year ago I underwent leg surgery.  During my procedure my father visited an old antique shop.  He talked to the owner and the owner gave my father a small statue of what seemed to be an angel.  My father brought it back to me and told me it was for good luck.  I kept it for about a year and just realized that it has gone missing.  I asked my father about it and he said that he "got rid of it."  He told me that he got a wierd feeling about it.  Ever since it has been gone, my brother and I, who have never gotten along, finally got along.  Was this item cursed?

I can't answer this question as it is out of my field. I do know that objects are believed to hold the energies of people who once owned them, and that this is what people refer to when they mean "cursed," but I can't say for certain that this was the problem.

I`ve been reading books about ghosts for a long time and have seen numerous movies about them as well. I can point out what is more likely, what is unlikely and site true examples from the subject. I have also been writing fictional ghost stories off and on since high school. I have been keeping a comprehensive listing of haunted sites for a long time and have visited a few local haunted sites in my area. I do not consider myself a ghost hunter or ghost researcher. I have no college or univerity training in the subject, but I have postulated a few personal theories about the phenomenon. I recently published the book, "Volunteer Ghosts," about ghosts in Tennessee. Another thing, because ghost shows are becoming so popular, I'm getting deluged with messages from people thinking they have ghosts. Please try to bust your own experiences before asking me about them. So many people who believe in ghosts and experience things want proof so much that they are coming to me for answers. Please check your grammar and proofread your messages too. I can't understand what you're asking if your questions aren't legibly precise. Don't make me try to decipher your message. Keep your messages short and to the point! Do not post long rambling inquiries! I do not know anything about demonology; no questions about evil spirits or possession. That has nothing to do with ghosts or haunted houses.


I have had very brief exposure in doing field work; I hope to get back into it someday.
