Ghost Doctors

NYC Metropolitan Museum of Art Egyptian Magic & Ghosts

Could a magical tablet secluded and hidden in plain sight in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art be haunted by ancient Egyptian Ghosts? Maybe so says NYC's Ghost Doctors.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2015 -- When passing through Metropolitan Museum of Art's vast collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts one might not take notice of an innocuous gray slab covered with pictographs and writings that dates back almost 2400 years. But it seems that this "Magical Stela" is drawing the attention of some unusual visitors -- ghostly visitors according to Pete and Stew Kandel (know as Dr. Pete and Dr. Stew) paranormal investigators and licensed NYC tour guides aka the "Ghost Doctors."

The Ghost Doctors who lead groups of adventurous amateur ghost hunters through a variety of NYC's iconic landmarks including the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art -- have been searching the hallways and galleries of this famous New York institution for signs of paranormal activity and have found the Egyptian wings to be buzzing with action. But recently they have turned their attention to an ancient stone slab covered with what seems to be...magical spells.

"The Metternich Stela or simply the Magical Stela was used by ancient Egyptian physicians to help ward off illnesses and poisons," says Dr. Stew. "Inscribed on this Magical Stela are 13 spells that had the ability to cure a patient's afflictions by either being read aloud or by just simply drinking the water that was poured over this magical tablet."

Moreover on a recent ghost hunt through the Met, the Ghost Doctors after schooling a group of participants on the fundamentals of ghost hunting 101 -- including the use of a variety of ghost hunting equipment -- their group of anxious but excited ghost hunters in training were passing within the vicinity of the Magical Stela when they detected...something.

"We were passing through one of the hallways in the Egyptian wing when we encountered the Magical Stela. As soon as we took sight of this ancient tablet one of our instruments just...went off," says Dr. Pete. "After inspecting this ancient relic for a few minutes we again picked up some unusual readings on our instruments and then just stopped. So this artifact definitely moves up on our must investigate list on any of our upcoming Met ghost hunts."

So the next time one feels a little under the weather and needs a paranormal remedy -– look up the Ghost Doctors. They'll probably say, take one Magical Tablet and call them in the morning!
