Keris

We can find this thing in Indonesia. This kind of traditional weapon. But there is a mysterious story about this thing. No wonder if we can found magicalĀ  attraction from this weapon. Because this weapon can move, stand, and even fly by itself. There is a legend an old man, namely Mpu Gandring. Many victims was die including Mpu Gandring because of the weapon. According to the legend, this weapon was brought in the sea, but it become the dragon. Many collector want to get the old Keris for collection. Because the older of the weapon the price more expensive.



Don't bother Pharaoh

Don't try to bother Pharaoh and the other things beside him. like the bad experience from Carnarvon. He was died after dig up Tutankhamun cemetery, he is one of Pharaoh in 1923. And the mysterious moment is when the day of Carnavarnon die, the electricity entire the Cairo City, Egypt was shut down by it self.There is a curse behind the Pharaoh. The curse still running for anyone who disturb the sleep of the King, they will feel the rigors. Like an American person who brought the Tutankhamun mask, suddenly he got stroke. And many mysterious happen as long the research.


"Crying Boy" painting Curse

there was mysterious fire at England in 1985. The house over there almost burnt. Except a painting. "Crying Boy" painting exactly. There was many unreasonable incident happen over there. According the story behind this painting, the object of this painting is a boy who his parent was die because of fire too. And the studio who produce this painting was burnt by on fire also. And the boy was die because of the explosion. And the "spirit" of the young boy haunted this painting.

Reading this interesting Hub I had three thoughts...

1. The doll reminded me of voodoo for some reason.

2. The Keri reminded me of an umbrella sword, without the umbrella.

3. I was glad this intriguing painting of the Crying Boy was not destroyed in the fire.

Just some thoughts...Thanks for this...Larry

An interesting hub!! curse on any objects exist as subtle disruptive wave vibration inherent and is still intact with the object focused upon forming a set pattern of vibrations around.It takes a strong focused mind to bring about such an act of curse.Not only curse, but even religious objects, yantras can be energized and be effective depending upon the direction and power focussed.

Lastly, Lower astral elemental creatures may be called upon for a pre-defined Task.


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Thanks, chubatemjen for share your opinion about the curse as an object that exist in the real world. As a religious person, we may didn't believe with anything about curse. But I hope by reading this hub, we can increase our spirituality side. Don't forget, there's another world my friend. Good to see you here. ~prasetio

An extremely intriguing hub! I have heard about the curse of the Pharaoh but not other 3! The doll looked so scary and I am too scared to visit Florida Museum (I avoided so-called haunted places). So surprising to see standing knives - are they magical or for real? The crying boy looked so mysterious and tragic and I will never come near it ever!

Thanks for SHARING. Interesting. Voted up.


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 4 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Dear, ishwaryaa22. Thank you very much for coming and share your opinion about this topic. I don't want to make you scare with all this explanations. But I hope we can learn about something mysterious around us. Talk about standing knives (keris), most of them magical and the rest of them were real because of the iron material made them can stood. I hope you enjoy this hub. Again...thanks for share your vote. I really appreciate that. Have a nice weekend :-)
