Get fucking thread happening over at reddit right now. Some dude and his friend found a fucked up voodoo statue in the forest and now his friends house is haunted. Creepiest part is something about hearing a guy with a tracheotomy breathing in his ear.
Pasting the whole story below
Last weekend my friend and I went hiking in the Catskills (near Sundown Forest FWIW) and found this really creepy statue while fucking around in some caves. It has nails in its eyes and a noose around its neck. Looks like it might be old. I don’t think its been there very long but its weird because this cave was way off the trail. Someone had a fire in there not too long ago.
The statue really wigged me out but my buddy decided to take it home with him even though I told him not to. Everyone says that theres devil worshippers that come out here to sacrifice animals and do their spells and shit so i didn’t want anything to do with this thing.
A couple days later my friend calls me and tells me that he thinks the statue is haunted because it keeps moving from its spot and he keeps smelling weird stuff. Says he can’t sleep at night because banging keeps waking him up. Now last night someone knocked on his door but no one was there when he opened it and he’s super weirded out. He thinks he has a ghost cause of the statue.
It must just be a coincidence but I think he’s actually scared. Before we go set thing on fire i wanted to see if anyone knows what it is. Anyone ever seen something like this or heard of a statue causing ghosts?
Throwaway because i didn’t want to use my main account for spoopy stuff.
EDIT: My friend showed up here at like 1130. He’s out of his mind scared. never seen him like this before.I’m going to do my best to remember everything he just told me because it was a lot. But long story short, he’s sleeping over because something is in his house.
We found the statue on Sunday and like I said I told him not to take to because it gave me bad vibes but he took it anyway. He’s been an atheist as long as I’ve known him so when he told that something was going on i thought he was just fucking with me because i knows i like to watch paranormal shows (he always made fun of me for it)
It started out just as knocks and banging but he said that by Wednesday he started waking up in the middle of the night feeling like someone was watching. This kept happening through the week and every time he’d wake up he would smell a really strong scent like pond water. He doesn’t believe any of this stuff so he just ignored it until a few days ago when the statue moved from his desk into his living room. He says that every night since thursday its moved into a different room than where he left it. He thought it was his dog moving it around because it smelled funny but his dog won’t go anywhere near it. He says that she’s actually peed in the house three nights in a row and she’s never ever done that.
Last night someone knocked on his door at 3 in the morning but when he went to open it there was no one there. His motion lights weren’t on and there weren’t any cars in his driveway. He said that he opened up the door to look outside and thats when he knew that he made a big mistake like he just felt like he shouldn’t have opened his door. thats why i made this post in the first place. At that point i didn’t have any reason not to believe him because it had gone way beyond a joke and he actually sounded really really fucking scared on the phone. He kept telling me that he was going to burn the statue because he knows that something followed him
Anyway he stayed up all night and then decided to go to the movies to take his mind off of it. When he got home he said it felt like everything was fine and he decided to finally go to bed. This is where it gets super fucked up. He says that when he woke up which wasn’t until like 10 it was because his dog was barking like crazy. He said the pond water smell was stronger than ever and when he went out into his hallway he saw all of these muddy footprints everywhere. not like shoe prints but barefoot. all of his doors and windows were locked (after someone knocked on his door he freaked out and made sure everything was locked up) so theres no fucking way anyone could have gotten inside. sitting in the living room was the fucking statue which had moved again and he says that when he started to go near it he head someone breathing “like his grandpa with the tracheotomy”. He peaced the fuck out and now he and his dog are sleeping in my guest room tonight
Ive never seen him this scared and he even started crying. i have no fucking idea what do to. I believe him because he has no reason to loiemtp about this because its way too far to be a joke now. i know that everyone says not to burn it or whatever so what the fuck do we do. he wants me to go to his house to get the statue tomorrow but I’m too fucking freaked out to take it back to where we found in because i don’t want to see whoever put there.
Sorry for the typos i just wanted to write this out quick so i know that i got it all.
Is there any particular reason why he can't just get rid of it?
Sorry if a reason was given and I skimmed over it.
>pond water smell
This seems interesting. If it has no potential to help in getting rid of it, it could at least help to identify it. I can't imagine there are too many spirits/demons/ayylmaos that are associated with "a really strong scent like pond water." Not just "a strong scent" or something creepypasta like "a strong scent of death/ I could smell fear", but something specific like pond water.
But so far it looks like only OP himself has questioned it.
No research or background information on this kinda stuff here, but basically, from the nails and noose, it looks like a voodoo doll.
Voodoo dolls are said to work by way of a connection to the victim, and it is also believed that when that person dies, that connection isn't severed, but instead united.
Think of it like this, a piece of the victims soul is in the doll, which is what makes the voodoo work you can assume. Then the person dies, the soul is reunited, except the part in the doll doesn't leave. After all, if a soul in a voodoo doll was made so that it could leave, it's purpose wouldn't be very reliable would it? So when the person died, his soul probably entered the doll, and is now trapped inside it.
Honestly, you should just destroy it.
Sure, it will "unleash" whatever is supposedly inside it, but I doubt whatever it is is only interested in bugging some random guy that picked it up.
If its the soul of some guy that was tortured with the voodoo doll, he probably just wants out so he can pass on.
If its supposedly the soul of a demon or something, then it should be let out in the open, away from a house, and have the person visit a church or something so whatever it is can't follow them back home.
they're supposed to return it with some offerings or bind it to a place that itsn't their house
The statue is meant to attract and curse people with similar sins to the men of Ukl. Meaning thieves, murders and renouncers of Allah. OP's friend is confirmed to be two of these things.
That isn't voodou, that statue is more akin to something you'd see in Appalachian folk magic brought over by German settlers/other central europeans. From what I know of the traditions, fill a small safe with salt, put the idol in it, padlock and chains, bury innawoods
You may be right. If I was OP and set on destroying it, I would do it away from my home, smudge/cleanse myselfe before and after and peace out before the ghost could follow me or whatever.
The story sounds fake.No nonbeliever would make several photos of the stature before he takes it home with him.
But if it`s true do what >>17200607 said, but instead of a safe use a chest solely made of wood. Don't use any nails or metal or anything else to make the chest.
Cum on it. Piss the demon off by giving it a splatoon amiboo special.
Yeah don't think they have statues though.
Write on a piece of paper "ALLAH WHO ACKBAR" and show it to the statue, then tape it to its forehead.
But make sure to do this outside, since the statue will then explode lel
3:00am is when a LOT of bad shit happens. Fucking devil's hour.
I live in a marine corps barracks and I've had some weird shit going down in my room around that time lately as well.
Ive hated that time of night since I was a kid. Always lived in really haunted areas so ive seen some shit late at night.
At my last base the marines would find sailor's out late at night and drag them into their barracks room. They'd call the quarterdeck and tell that that if they wanted their sailor back to place an order for a pizza to go to their room.
The Roman Province of Grecia: (Circa; 30 A.D. - 100 A.D.)
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers,
And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,
And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.
And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.
And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailor to keep them safely:
Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.
And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.
Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
The Roman Province of Grecia: (Circa; 30 A.D. - 100 A.D.)
And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.
And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.
And when it was day, the magistrates sent the serjeants, saying, Let those men go.
And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace.
But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.
And the serjeants told these words unto the magistrates: and they feared, when they heard that they were Romans.
And they came and besought them, and brought them out, and desired them to depart out of the city.
And they went out of the prison, and entered into the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.
Its an african fetish doll.
Nkisi or Nkishi (plural varies: minkisi, zinkisi, or nkisi) are spirits, or an object that a spirit inhabits. It is frequently applied to a variety of objects used throughout the Congo Basin in Central Africa that are believed to contain spiritual powers or spirits. The term and its concept have passed with the Atlantic slave trade to the Americas.
That was posted to OP not from him silly. I'm not OP.
It looks like a product of sympathetic magic. The statue represents someone. The symbolic violence inflicted upon the statue - the nails in its eyes, the noose around its neck - is meant to cause real injury to the living person. Maybe the nature of the ritual that created the effigy has attracted an evil spirit (like-attracting-like). Also, according to most cultures, you shouldn't touch ritual fetishes like that. Law of Contagion, bro.
>buy wooden figurine for one dollar
>add nails and rope for creepy factor
>claim house is haunted
>sell your 1$ invention for big money to some autist
>in a marine barracks
It's because you're a boot and your seniors with PTSD fuck with you at that time, isn't? Don't lie. I know the truth. Cuz it happened to me and I, in turn, did it to my boots. Get drunk, can't sleep, go pound on a boot's door and kick his ass. Or break in to their room. One time, I woke up already in a chokehold and he just kept choking me going "shhh, shhh, go back to sleep little one, it'll all be over soon." Weird as fuck.
Or, you're a POG, and the sounds of the female marines getting railed all night keeps you up.
I'm not sure where the pun is.
Also, the concept of the female marines being the fuck toys for all the male marines is hot. Especially when they are fucked so loud that people can hear it. I think that's a pretty normal response to have when presented with this thought.
The OP pic is of a fetish doll.
And this is the third /x/ thread this month that has had that line about finding a new fetish posted. You kinda don't expect that in "spooky" conversations. It's weird.
I did not even think of this...
Also, I feel like there's more sexy stuff hidden in spooky stuff than you might think. The two most human experiences are fear and lust.
I prayed for your spirits and ask for forgiveness from the spirit whom you wronged let me. You still need to give me the doll.
The devil worship label and "witchcraft" really places it as more of a Wicca thing. Pagans.
The way that it is bound screams effigy and not an idol, though idols are often cast in a similar fashion.
Neo-pagan kids use magic incorrectly see the above post.
Because a lot of the people from reddit come here wanting to be a stupid circlejerk, not lurking, whining, and trying to be edgy. Oviiously not all of them, but many. So we try to discourage inter site mingling.now do You get it you redditfag? Don't mention reddit.
no näyttää hyvältä kirjahyllyn päällä :D
What's the most effective way to do this? There's always contradicting info depending on where you ask.
Also, would banishing be a good idea in dreams, if something attacked you?
