Sorry, not sure if this is the right section, but here goes:
Some time ago, I asked about the possibility of "hexes" here on this forum. It was at a time when everything suddenly changed from being excellent to terrible, fir no good reason.
I let my superstitious side go wild back then, and bought a little amulet-type thing (a quartz crystal sort of pyramid-cross) that is supposed to ward off negative energy.
Then my superstitious side died down again, and I left the little crystal in a corner of my room on a dresser, where I more or less forgot about it (at least, as an item with any power - it's still pretty to look at).
Today I had some bad news, which semi-stimulated my superstitious side again. I consulted an online iching, and ironically, upon posing the question (by thought, not actually typing it in), "How do I re-discover magic", a "tip" came up which said, "this is not magic. This is a powerful psychological tool if you use it correctly". I asked the oracle a few other questions, and that tip did not come up again (ie, it's not a tip that's always there regardless, and seems to have come up specifically in response to my thought - pretty ironic really)
Anyway, back to the crystal thing: after a meditation session, trying to get some answers, I noticed the crystal thing - and one of the four legs of the cross was bent down at about 60 degrees (the cross elements are connected to the pyramid elements with a metal casing, which allows for some bending if you applied force)
There is no particular reason for this item to have got bent. It has just been sitting on my dresser for the last few months - I only really notice it when I dust. It's not in a precarious position, or anywhere where it is likely to be knocked.
I have had other unexplained movements in the house - on that very dresser as it happens. Last year I used to keep books on the dresser, between two bookends. One day a single book was pulled away from the rest and was standing unsupported on its end (it was a book that was intended to be a sort of grimoire, but I never felt comfortable writing things down, so it just stayed nestled in amongst various novels, unused).
Any significance in minor poltergeist-like activities?
