Believe in the paranomal!
Since the new horror movie “The Conjuring” based on true events hit the theaters, we’ve all been introduced to Annabell the creepy story of the possessed Raggedy Anne doll.
As a huge fan and follower of Lorraine & Ed Warren since I was 13 years old and also read “Amityville Horror, The True Story” I came across the chilling story of Annabelle the doll.
The word conjuring means: To call or bring to mind; evoke and to summon a devil by magic or supernatural power.
The Warrens believed demons and ghost don’t posses figures. Humans do. There was an inhuman spirit – a demon – attached to the doll. It was clinging to the doll, manipulating it, in order to give the impression of a haunting. The target is really your soul.
With this being said, I had no intention of conjuring an inhuman entity to my Raggedy Ann Collection and though I am always surrounded by all types of spirits, I always pray over my figures, blessing them with prayer and Holy Water, forbidding any spirit to attach or cause harm to me or anything or anyone around me.
Thank God “The Conjuring” used an ugly old creepy doll, instead of the Raggedy Ann Doll. Could you imagine how many garbage bins would be full of Raggedy Anne Dolls after that?
Anyway here is my doll Bella who sort a favors Anna Belle:
Here is another Raggedy Ann collectors item of mine:
Bella always laid on my bed even while I was sleeping and I never experience any type of phenomena ever. Now my son is a different story. He always hated Bella, he’d always say “that doll, freaks me out” A few years ago, I ran to the market just up the way to grab some missing ingredients for dinner and I asked my son to wait home and watch the rolls in the oven until I returned, which took no more than 20 minutes. I returned and my son tells me to get rid of Bella because he saw her scoot from one side of the bed down to the end of it, trying to work her way down off of the bed. 🙂 In this case I believe he made up the story so I could put her away. So, to make him comfortable he watched me put her away in a Rubbermaid bin. Even if the story was untrue, for some reason he felt a sense of unease with her and that is important to me. As a Mother, a protector, and a person he can always trust. I put Bella away. But I will always love Raggedy Ann 🙂
