Haydée is a very confident and highly active entity. We have no idea how or why she attached to this vessel. She came from a friend in Normandy, France. The vessel was purchased at an estate sale. The friend who bought her did not think she was haunted at the time, despite her music box going off randomly when she found her. She soon found out that there was definitely a spirit attached. This friend was a newbie spirit keeper, and Haydée was NOT impressed. She quickly became offended when she felt she was being treated "as a parlor trick" and soon our friend contacted us to take the vessel. She was now scared of the doll. And yes, Haydée has that effect on people. She kind of expects to be treated a certain way and gets mad if she is not treated that way. Makes sense to us. But we have been doing this for a while. It is really not hard to communicate with her. She is a very easy communicator. Once you get to know her and realize her personality, and how she sees herself, it is not hard to level up and treat her in the way she is expecting. Haydée was a wealthy young woman, with a lot of ambition. She was smarter than her siblings, she was smarter than her schoolmates. She seemed to be fated for big things in her life. She is still really mad that she never got to achieve her goals. Haydée died in a car accident, not her fault. The shock and trauma of it might be the reason why she has decided to stay in this realm. I think she might have been overly confident, overly ambitious, and yes, dare I say, quite the bitch in her life. She has said things like, "This shouldn't have happened to ME" and "I'll never make my mark on the world now". This leads us to think she was quite the diva too. Believe it or not, she is not a bitch to us, as long as we treat her right. She is so intelligent, she KNOWS she is dead, and she KNOWS she is attached to this doll. She understands that she is a conduit for the living and that we may see her as a ghost, and someone we can talk to on "the other side". She gets that. But we can not cheapen the experience for her. We cannot ask her to play "Bloody Mary" during a sleepover, for example. She is not going to allow herself to be treated like a 13-year-old at a birthday party. And I do not blame her. Haydée sees herself as a Hillary Clinton type of young woman she was going to do BIG THINGS. She had all the right networks, she had all the right connections, and she was going to DO SOMETHING AMAZING with her life. And we need to understand that she expects to be treated as the young woman she WAS. I see no problem with it. The only issue I can foretell is if a newbie adopts her and doesn't build that bond, then I can see issues. She wants a friend, someone to connect with. Someone who will communicate with her regularly. She wants to be heard and seen. Haydée needs to be with a caregiver who will treat her with respect and dignity. She does really well with the Ouija board and pendulum. She likes everything from dowsing rods to the spirit box, and she really likes close-knit, face-to-face seance-style communication sessions. But she would be happy with anyone who spoke to AND LISTENED to her. She wants to be heard. She is very active in terms of movements, temperature changes, voices, footsteps, and DEFINITELY a ton of light anomalies. We see all sorts of lights and glittery orbs around her. I feel like Haydée would absolutely do best with an experienced spirit keeper, a professional paranormal investigator, or an older ghost hunter - someone who really understands spirit keeping and will make it a routine to be friends with her. That is what she needs.
About the Doll: Haydée is a Gorham musical doll, she plays "as time goes by". Her clothing is amazing. It consists of a dress, a slip, lace socks, and pointed-toe shoes. Her eyes are hand-blown glass paperweights. Her face is meticulously hand-painted. She will come with a stand. She is a special vessel for sure. ･ ·̩ ｡ ☆ ﾟ｡ ･ ·̩ ｡ ☆ ﾟ｡･ ·̩ ｡ ☆ ﾟ｡＊ ｡* + ＊ ･ ｡☆ ☆ * ･ ·̩ ｡ ☆ ﾟ｡ ･ ·̩ ｡ ☆ ﾟ｡･ ·̩ ｡ ☆ ﾟ｡＊ ｡* + ＊ ･ ｡☆ ☆ * * 。･ ｡ﾟ･ ☆ﾟ ☆ * * ･ ｡ﾟ･ ☆ﾟ + ･ ·̩ ｡ ☆ ﾟ｡
IMPORTANT - If you look at a spirit doll and feel a tug in your heart, that is how you know the doll is meant for you. You will feel it in your soul. I can reserve a doll for you for up to 2 weeks while you decide. Email me with any questions you have regarding this doll, or haunted dolls in general.
FYI: In my old shop, we had to have a disclaimer explaining that haunted items were "for entertainment purposes only" and this disclaimer is needed for some credit card processors as well - However, you need to know, as a potential buyer/adopter that I am NOT responsible for any paranormal activity that you might experience in your home once you adopt a spirit. This is serious and many people who do not know what they are doing have had some pretty overwhelming experiences usually due to their own lack of knowledge or understanding about what it means to be a spirit keeper. If you are under the age of 18, please do some research before trying to adopt a spirit. As a seller, I will repeat, there are NO REFUNDS on haunted dolls - I will not guarantee that you will have the same experiences as I have had. but if you know your stuff, do your research, and are prepared for anything, then you will!
