A man in Melbourne wants the world to be more aware of the danger posed by haunted chairs, in part by selling his own haunted chair on Ebay.
Do you have a haunted chair? How can you tell? If you aren’t sure – or even if you are – read on…
Andre Williams never suspected this simple chair could be haunted until after he brought the chair into his home.
Now chairs are the third most frequently haunted household item after mirrors and cupboards for a couple of reasons. Almost everybody has a favourite one plus they are a relatively light yet sturdy source of noise that can be used to communicate with the living.
But as a supernatural survivor, how can you tell if your favourite chair is haunted?
Three Simple Signs:
1. Where Did You Get That Chair?
If you don’t know, your chair – and you – could be at risk.
This was Andre’s first mistake, bringing a chair of unknown origin into his home. Anytime you retrieve a household item from the trash as Andre did, especially chairs and mirrors, you run the risk of picking up a poltergeist. There’s a reason that chair was discarded in the first place and even the most careful inspection of the object by a trained supernatural survivologist can overlook obvious signs of haunting.
You need to know the complete history of every item of furniture in your home. If the complete history cannot be determined, but the chair hasn’t been behaving strangely – yet – you should still initiate a thorough inspection of every surface of the chair for telltale clues including: scratches, blood stains and hidden objects. Even a wad of gum might be an important clue, if only to blackmail your little brother or sister but maybe more.
2. Does Your Chair Make Unexplained Noises?
Much like cupboards, ghosts like chairs for the noises they make. If your chair creaks, scrapes or cries when nobody is sitting on it, especially at night, suspect a supernatural source.
“I heard some crying during the night,” Andre writes on his Ebay advertisement. “Then in the morning I noticed that the chair was on its side. I didn’t connect the dots until it happened several times over the two years.”
Keep a journal of the noises your chair makes and when. Andre notes that his chair is prone to laughter as well as tears.
3. Does Your Chair Move Itself?
In the most extreme cases a haunted chair might move when you are sitting in it but more often it will change places when you’re not looking. So be chair aware. Keep an eye on the position of all the furniture in your HQ so you will know if there’s a ghost is gaming it.
And anytime a chair does move on its own, you must immediately ask yourself why? Moving physical objects takes a lot of phantom energy so rest assured there’s a reason. Especially if it moves the same way on multiple occasions. You should immediately inspect the area around the chair’s new location for marks that might be scratching out a message and/or loose carpet that could indicate a secret compartment beneath.
Andre from Melbourne notes that his chair often moves to a different spot, up to three meters leaving shallow dents in the floor. So far he has not been able to determine the message left in the scratches, so he wants to sell it to somebody who can, offering it up on Ebay for anyone who dares to bid.
“I would be glad to be rid of it and pass it on to someone who has experience with this kind of thing! Please help!!” he writes on his Ebay advertisement.
That said it seems Mr. Williams is hoping for a demon buyer as the target price is a hot 666 bucks.
But wait before you bid, remember the story of Joseph Birch and his haunted mirror? If you don’t please review. He has never been heard from again…by Seth Greening - Visit SethOnSurvival.com
Spirits are rather attracted to chairs because when we are among living they provide respite and rest, and it is the hope of these mournful souls that the chair can lead yo eternal rest.
I see your point that an object providing rest in life would be the source of unrest from the afterlife…
Thanks for making it and for keeping on.
