13 Things That are Cursed

Updated on October 3, 2015

1. The Curse of 27

The Curse of 27 is the belief that 27 is an unlucky number due to the number of famous musicians and entertainers who have died at the age. Robert Johnson, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, Janis Joplin, Jonathan Brandis and Kurt Cobain are all believed to have been affected by the curse of 27.

2.  The Hope Diamond

The Hope Diamond is supposed to carry such a curse, and bring bad luck to its owner. The stories behind why it’s cursed vary, but it brings bad luck or to its owner. So if you are deciding to own a hope diamond you should think twice. This diamond was stolen or brought “as we know” from India. It is said that in India its color was white but when it was moved, it turned blue. Since then none of its owner made it out of the hope curse. They all died and diamond rests in a museum now.

3. Mummies

Mummies are also considered to be cursed. Mummies are dead bodies of Egyptian rulers and these rulers were really cruel so their bodies are under a constant wrath of God. So if you have any mummies in your home through it out. If you have one in your local museum then put some salt and pepper on it and burn it.

4. The Book of the Dead

"The Book of Dead" is the name given to the ancient Egyptian book called the "Spells of Wanahokiho." (How am I supposed to know its Egyptian name its ancient)The Book of the Dead was used to help the dead in the afterlife and comprised a collection of hymns, spells, and instructions to allow the departed to pass through tests in the afterlife. But it was not just that, it was a book that was used to put hex on living people. These spells were strong enough to kill anyone. Magic and sorcery was practiced openly in ancient Egypt and this book is the only living proof of that.  The Book of the Dead was most commonly written on a papyrus scroll and placed in the coffin or burial chamber of the deceased.

5. Black Cat

Black cats are considered to be cursed. Actually it’s more like they are the curse. If they cross you path then your in trouble, if they come after you then your in deep deep trouble, but if black cat shows up when your taking a bath then my friend you're pretty much dead. So when ever you see a black cat stalking you, call ghost busters or just feed the cats probably it’s hungry.

6. Crying Boy Painting.

The myth around this painting is as gloomy as it gets. It all began around 1985, when several mysterious fires occurred all around England. Only thing that survived this fire was painting of a little boy with a tear rolling his cheek.

There were at that time several of these paintings around and each one seemed to have the similar effect. The home would be totally destroyed but the painting of the little crying boy would not show any sign at all of going through a fire. There have been reports of the crying boy painting being found in burnt homes untouched since 1985 and as recent as 1998.

So if you have happy boy painting then get a fire alarm because it’s going to burn your house and then cry.

7. One Eye

Muslims call it the eye of Dajjal. People believe that in near future a thing called Dajjal will appear and it will bring destruction in this world. It will rage wars and many people will die. This thing will have army of its own a big mighty army but in the end it will be defeated and peace will be restored.

8. Solar eclipses

Solar eclipse is also considered to be cursed this is the time when followers and gurus of black magic do their toughest rituals and it is considered to be a very dark moment.

9. Howling dogs

Dogs have been given some exceptional skills. Dogs have great power of smell and hearing. But many people believe that Dogs have a super sight too. Dogs can see what human cannot see. Dogs can see every daemon or evil creatures out there that are hidden from humans. So if your dog is out side and it starts to howl then you should be aware that there is something evil near by. My advice would be to get in your hose and lock the doors turn on your tv and start watching cartoon network it keeps you distracted.

10.              2012

2012 is going to be the year when every thing is going to change. During this time, Earth and its residents may possibly experience a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a new world. But there is a cured side too and it says that 2012 date marks the end of the world or a similar disaster. There are also talks of earth colliding with a passing planet referred to as "Nibiru”. Well I believe that no one in history was able to predict any thing after 2012 because God didn’t want them to see beyond that date. God has planned a something big so lets see what happens on 2012.

11.              Circling vultures

Vultures are the birds of the dead. They feed on dead carcass and every thing about them is dead. But they are very cute looking and presented as dumb birds in many cartoons.  If there is a group of flying in circles over your house then its pretty much considered cursed.

12.              Red Sky

It is believed that red sky is sign that somewhere a very innocent person who’s very close to God has been murdered and God is very furious over what has happened and as a warning the sky becomes red.

13.  Number 13

 Well every one knows that number 13 is cursed. I found out when I was in 8th grade got 13 in a test and it failed me (Test total was 50). But did you know that there was a time when sailors would give any thing for getting their ships registered at number 13 or 113 or 1113 or any number with 13 init because then that ship would carry bad luck for sea monsters.

      Black cat you spoke about is so true, two years back we were shifting our house to another one, we wentto meet the house owner and pay the advance and when we were about to enter the apartment a black cat jumped across, that time I didn't knew anything about it and we ignored, but I remember it well because it was so fierce looking cat and we only lived in that house for 6 months but that six months were the worst days of our life, out of nowhere troubles started pouring in and we suffered like anything, and every other day we were sick and we lost like about 50 thousand dollars and when ever we go for any good things this cat will make our appearance then we decided to change our house and like a miracle things started falling in place

      Bilaras - Interesting hub. Thank you for writing it. I do have to point out though that the Egyptian Book of the Dead does not have any hexes in it whatsoever. I've actually read the entire thing, and it is more of a ceremonial worship hymnal than a "hexing" book. Much of the verses in it are very similar to verses in the Bible, in which worship God (or in this case different Egyptian gods). Also the name was also translated as "Book of emerging forth into the Light". Loved the article though!

      In today's age electronics can be effected by Hexes due to an electromagnetic field generated by the said hex which will cause unexplained glitches/failures.etc.

      If it's a curse you will probably get tech support to help you but they won't know what to do.

      If it's a hex you will either get no tech support. Tech support that acts totally retarded or rude tech support.

      Most likely the tech support that comes will come when you aren't home so it's best to try to confuse the hex as much as possible by having lots and LOTS of options so the Hex will have to decide what it wants to curse.

      Here is my defintion of a curse which usually is started by something that seems "harmless" but in reality is drawing out negative energy.


      Bad luck is when something happens once in a while like maybe a car accident but if you pull it together friends/family insurance.etc will come to your aid or you go to the Doctor for a major illness but the situation passes which you get tons of support you never thought you'd have.


      Curse: A series of accidents that are centered in a certain area of your life designed by someone who may be jealous/angry no matter how many years ago.

      If you get into that car accident you will likely be fucked with little to no support from people that would normally support you.

      Hex: A negative spiral inside yourself either self created or caused by an outside source that effects your whole life no matter WHAT you do.

      You DO NOT under any circumstances want to be in a car accident under a hex or be driving a motor vehicle for that matter. If you have one please use your bicycle instead.

      STAY OFF THE ROAD!!!!!!

      Hexes literally sucks in negative energy like a vacumm from any source that is nearby you. The reason you get paranoid around people is because your subconsiouce doesn't want any more energy converted to "evil" since a Hex may effect one or more people.

      This hub is different and interesting. Like many other people, I claim not to be superstitious, but I tend to believe some of us are more superstitious than we are willing to admit.
