I most certainly think that common ordinary objects can be haunted or possessed. One trip to John Zaffis's museum could show you that. There are many stories about many different objects there. Everything from a grandfather clock that behaves bizzare to a wedding dress that is said to choke you when you put in on. Just some examples.

To my understanding (which i dont have extensive knowledge on), isn't it that a spirit has a tie to the object?

Now this is just my opinion but I don't think a spirit has to tie itself to an object for it to be haunted. Not everytime. There is still the residual energy factor.

Could that be then why some mediums or psychics can pick up an object and tell the history of it?

In my work I have found that there is three types of latent energy that may have a nexus to an object ... 1) Interactive, 2) Residual and 3) a combination of both. I address each of these on my website.

Can I ask how can you tell the difference or that how you would know if you had both?

I am dealing with this topic in my home at the moment. My husband and I love antiques, we have many, from ones handed down to us from family to ones bought in antique shops. My husband has always wanted an old wooden wall phone, the kind with a mouthpiece you talk into and a hand held receiver you put to your ear and a crank that rings. We found the perfect one while browsing about 4 years ago in a huge antique flea market type of a place in our town, great price and the nicest one we have ever seen. It is just for show, it is not hooked up in any way. We found the perfect spot in our kitchen on a beam near the entrance to our front hallway. Just after we put it up, I woke up in the middle of the night to hear it ringing. I thought no way, and there was no way I was going to answer it, lol. Nothing has happened since until the other night, once again I heard the same ringing that only that telephone makes when you crank it. Today, I just happened to look at the telephone, which has not been touched for a long time, and the reciever was placed upside down, not the way it has hung since we put it up, it shocked me. I asked my husband if he had anyone over while I wasn't home that may have touched it and he said "no", in fact he was shocked by it too.

Did a spirit try to use the phone? Did they recognize the "old style" as a phone and try to use it? Obviously they hung it up wrong, or maybe right, I may be hanging the receiver wrong. The only spirit that I sense in my home is my grandmother, she comes and goes, and does like to use telephones. She was born in 1902, so she would recognize this style. I am not sure the age of this phone, possibly 1940's?? Here are some photos below. I took them tonight after I turned the receiver around and hung it the way it usually is. Is anyone familiar with this type of old phone? Is the receiver (on left) hung correctly or is upside down?
