The trend this year, particularly amongst millennials, is to not buy ready-made flat-pack furniture, but instead invest in antiques with character and history. As we become more conscious of the need to reuse and recycle, more people are sourcing their interior decor from vintage and antique stores, as well as making the most of furniture that has been passed down from family members. These pieces of furniture may have passed through many hands and they have a residual spiritual energy that can be felt and preserved. This energy is what gives a piece of furniture it's unique character.
Looking after your antiques
If you have acquired a new piece of antique furniture, it is important to make it look as beautiful as possible, this will help renew and preserve the spiritual energy. It will also help you to understand more about the furniture and you may even discover marks that will give you clues about its history. No piece of furniture wants to be covered in dust and dirt for decades — it is your responsibility, as its new custodian, to make it shine. Steering away from harsh chemicals and using natural materials is the best way to look after antique furniture. Dust, remove any signs of mold, clean with gentle soap and water and use a good beeswax polish to restore your furniture to its former glory. Every week, give your antique the love and attention that it deserves and in turn, the energy of the piece will be easier to read.
The history of the maker
Before you bring an antique into your home, it is important that you learn about the history of the maker. It is well-known for items of furniture to have a feeling of ju-ju or even be haunted. The Syfy show Haunted Collector featuring John Zaffis, investigated furniture that had residual spiritual energy. The history of the maker can have a lot to do with this. If someone puts their heart and soul into making an object, then that passion and dedication can be passed on through the very materials it was built from. However if an item is built under duress, in times of hatred or sadness then that echoes through the object. Before you place an item of furniture in your home, see if you can find out more about when and where it was made. It may help you understand better the spiritual vibrations you sense about it.
The life of the furniture
Many antique pieces of furniture have been passed down through generations, or moved from one family to the next. Karen Frazier, a reporter for Paranormal Underground and a paranormal investigator, has found objects with a spiritual energy attached to them - essentially a haunting. She believes that the residual energy replays itself over and over again and that some people can “read” objects in the same way that some people can sense past lives. If you sense that your piece of antique furniture has an energy, it is worth looking into its history. You might find that the previous homes where it has been kept might give you a clue to its past.
The antiques in your home have stories that they can tell you. Listen to the energy that they are releasing and you may find out more about the messages they are sending.
