My next step investigating Harold the Haunted Doll.

Now that I’ve posted several videos up on YouTube, caught anomalous energy on my Tri Field EMF Meter, caught orbs on video, recorded EVPs I haven’t posted, and Clairvoyant Erica Goodson has done a reading on Harold the Haunted Doll, I’m more convinced than ever before that there really is something “paranormal” going on with the doll. So I’m now looking for a paranormal group to do an investigation on the doll.

I’m looking for one that uses mediums, psychics, and such. When I had my group, back in the day, I used them in my investigations. I don’t think that using technology that was never meant to detect “ghosts” is “scientific.”

I’m warned about Harold the Haunted Doll!

After posting 4 videos of the reading Clairvoyant Erica Goodson did on Harold on YouTube (Haunted Harold is read by a psychic!) I was contacted by a woman who seemed extremely agitated after watching  the first video.

“I’m just going to say this you can believe me or not! He’s a [strong] spirit and not alone!! He was guided into what he does!” she wrote to me. “He’s trapped and he’s mad[Because people] won’t let him go! It was never his intention in being handed down all the time! Watch and see other things will happen in your home.”

“I’m sorry but I’m being pulled in by him it’s hard to explain.”

I really am interested in what she has to say. My plan is to continue getting readings on Harold.

It’s not that I don’t trust Erica, and what she said. I don’t trust Harold.

Erica Goodson does a Psychic Reading on Harold the Haunted Doll

After Erica Goodson, a Clairvoyant, did her first reading on Harold, it convinced me that the spirit inside of Harold is a “trickster.” Erica told me that she didn’t sense a spirit in the doll. She also told me that she didn’t believe that a spirit attached to an object. “Why would they?” she asked.

So when she did her first reading on Harold what did she think she was picking up on? “The energy of the person or people who owned it,” she explained to me. “Whatever we touch, especially if we’re fond of it, we leave our energy on it.” Which would explain why she kept talking about a little girl who died around the age of 4 or 5 years old.

When she started to do her second reading on Harold yesterday, she talked about seeing the same little girl. She also talked the girl’s mother along with a man whose relationship with the girl or the mother she couldn’t identify. “He’s not the girl’s father, or uncle. I don’t know who he is to her,” she explained.

Then I decided to take the crucifix out of the Harold’s bag.

Shortly after that the focus of the reading became the man Erica was seeing. And what she described is what I’ve suspected for years now, and other psychics talked about back in 2004 and 2005.

She said that this man talked about being hunted, beaten and murdered for a crime he didn’t commit. She said that the spirit told her he was accused of killing the little girl but it wasn’t true. He also told her that “he couldn’t help the things he did. He wanted to stop, but he couldn’t.”

“What things?” I asked Erica.

“The bad things he did,” Erica said.

Erica also gave me several clues as to where this took place and told me that in my search, “You’ll know it when you find it, because the mother still haunts the home.”



Haunted Harold, was that you?

This just happened a few minutes ago. I was playing  this video
of Harold on my computer to see if I could get a reaction from Harold, and it did!

First of all I saw the front of papers sitting on top of three books I have on my desk start moving up and down. I wasn’t sitting at the desk when it happened otherwise I might not have seen them moving.

There wasn’t any air current going through my room, and when the air conditioner did kick in, the papers didn’t move. I tried shaking the desk, and the papers did move, but not the way they did when I saw them moving earlier. In fact, nothing I did replicated the movement.

So I decided to take a pic of my desk to have a record of the way the papers are, and this is what I caught.


I was stunned to see the energy in the upper right corner, so I took several more pictures. I didn’t catch the energy, but the pixilation is bad.


In case you’re wondering, Harold is still zipped up in his bag, with the crucifix.

Harold and the Crucifix Part 2

Based on the pictures I’ve taken I took pics of Harold without the crucifix and, and pics which seem to show Harold’s energy being diffused when I put the crucifix in front of him, I’m thinking of removing the crucifix from his bag to see what happens.


I’ve kept this crucifix with Harold since either the second or third day I’ve had him back in 2004. Even though anomalous activity has happened despite the crucifix, the more extraordinary events have happened when the crucifix wasn’t present.


I’m still going back and forth as to whether or not to do this to be honest with you. If I do this, it’ll be for a limited period of time. I’ll let you know.

Haunted Harold the Doll and the crucifix

One of the questions I’m asked a lot is if I’ve had any personal experiences since I’ve had Harold. I have, but most of the stories I have involve other people. I did have another one of my own last night though.

I’ve been conducting EVP experiments with Harold hoping to capture more evidence of who he is, and what his story is about. Last night I thought I’d try it without the crucifix I keep with him at all times. So, I took the cross out of the bag, along with the holy water, left Harold in the bag, and started asking questions, recording the sessions on my cell phone’s video camera.

I did get a response to, “Harold, are you willing to talk to me?” I heard, “Yes … yes.” That was encouraging, but that’s all I got. Oh yeah, I also got a headache. It was a stress headache that caused my right temple to really hurt.

After three attempts to get Harold to talk, I finally gave up, zipped up the bag Harold is in, and got on my computer. My head continued to hurt, so I got up and went for a short walk around my hotel. After a couple of minutes the pain went away, and that’s when I began to wonder if Harold caused it.

I got back to my room and the same headache returned. I tried to ignore it, and the doll, when I remembered that I hadn’t put the crucifix back in the bag, which I immediately did. Within seconds, the pain went away.

The crucifix, blessed by Pope John Paul II, does seem to have an effect on Harold, as does the “holy water.” The first time I had a reading done by a psychic on Harold, I splashed the water on him. Later, when I listened to the recordings, I heard a man screaming in pain and cursing.

Recently, when I thought one of my friends was made sick by Harold, I doused the doll with holy water and moments later I heard, “Okay … she’s okay now.” I called my friend and she confirmed that she just started feeling better, after feeling ill for hours. She began feeling sick after we got off of the phone earlier that day. We were discussing Harold.

A couple of weeks ago, I took pictures of Harold because his energy seemed so “happy” after I took him out of his bag, to do EVP experiments with him. I was hoping to capture that energy on my cell phone camera.

Later, I put the crucifix in front of him, and took a couple of pics without looking at them.

When I did look at them the next morning I almost deleted them thinking that they were out of focus, the pixilation was so bad.

Harold with crucifix

That same night, when I put Harold back in the bag, I put him on top of the crucifix. A little later a thought came to me that Harold was enjoying sitting on the cross and “sh*tting” on it. I took the cross out from under Harold, put it on top of him, and the thought went away.

My point to all this is that I think I now know why I haven’t had as many “incidents” with Harold as you might think. I do believe that the crucifix acts as a “buffer” against Harold’s energy, and the threat of being doused with holy water seems to keep him in line as well.

Having said that, I’ve thought that for the sake of my investigation of him, about removing the crucifix and water and seeing what happens. I put them in with Harold after I received him and I was thinking of the stories Kathy told me about her experiences with him.

Then again … maybe I won’t. If Kathy is correct, and Harold is responsible for the deaths of two of her friends, I don’t need something like that on my conscience.

“Haunted Harold” makes a confession!

I found a WordPress website on Google about Harold. It was entitled, “Haunted Harold, the Devils Doll Speaks!”

I found it interesting for a couple of reasons. One, I’ve referred to Harold as “the Devil’s Doll,” for years now.

Secondly, this blog was apparently started on, or before February 10, 2010. It had an interesting angle in that it was written from Harold’s point of view. Also it contains stories concerning Kathy’s experiences with the doll that most people weren’t aware of, but Kathy shared with me.

I responded to a blog post that Greg, the original seller of Harold on eBay, wrote about selling Harold informing him that I not only won Harold in Kathy’s auction, but that I still owned him, on February 20th, 2010.

No other posts were written on the WordPress site after that.

So why am I bringing this up? Because I firmly believe that Greg started this blog, essentially to say that Kathy was crazy. He didn’t finish it after I wrote to him letting him know that I own the doll, and I’ve had my own anomalous experiences with it.

While I can’t prove it … it makes sense to me.

Whoever started this blog (ahem … Greg) admits in the post that the video posted about Harold in the original auction in which the doll appeared to move his arm, is faked, a camera trick (that’s the confession I referred to). I’ve always known it, but the writer (ahem … Greg) admits it.

I have to admit, I like the style that the blog post was written in. I only wish I would not have let him know that I owned Harold until he wrote Part 2 of his story.

There is another reason I decided to write this. While I haven’t looked, I’m sure there’s been an increase of “haunted dolls” up for auction, or sale, on eBay now, since the movie, “The Conjuring” came out. Someone asked me how do you know if the doll really is “haunted” or not? My advice to her was, “Bid on the doll, not the story.”
