I had an urge to play with a Ouija Board.
Every now and again, I enjoy doing something spooky. My roommate Bridget likes to participate in spooky adventures with me.
So we set out to borrow a Ouija Board and play. (Will not buy or own)
I’m a bit of a skeptic when it comes to the boards because the only time the planchette has moved for me is when certain people have had their hands on the board. Coincidence? I don’t believe so. Until it moves for just us, more serious people, it’s just a board with letters.
According to the owner of that board, we needed to go someplace where death has happened. He offered to let us play in his father’s old house where his step-mother died years ago in a house fire. I have been here before when it was a livable place and a couple of times after the fire. This would be my first time going here in a few years.
It was Bridget, Daniel, and me. We made it to the house late last night. The place has been taken over by woods! There isn’t even a backyard anymore like there used to be.
In the picture, you can see a pathway. This pathway leads to the door. It was once gravel or concrete (I can’t remember) and is under that driveway roof, so the grass hasn’t been able to grow as well in this area. The rest of the place is trees and shrubbery.
When we made it to the porch, we were greeted by a ton of clutter right next to the opened front door. We snake our way inside, me being a baby because I’m afraid of running into raccoons or squatters, and take in our surroundings.
As one might expect from a place that has been engulfed in flames, there is ash everywhere, being disturbed into the air as we take more and more steps inside. You can see the imprints from where hanging items were once placed. The ceiling had fallen in some places. The air was stiff and silent.
We then set down the board (after Daniel thoroughly checked for snakes) and began to play. This is when all the action happens.
Nothing happens after 10 minutes or so of asking questions and waiting.
I take that back. We did hear bats. When Daniel made the fair point of “I’m not getting rabies for this” we left.
Needless to say, I still think the board is just a way for liars to prank their gullible friends. At least in my case. I have heard some trustworthy stories about using the board that were pretty frightful.
If anyone has had any experiences with the Ouija Board that is actually believably unbelievable, please feel free to share your story in the comments!
(I have had arguments of…”you’re just not open enough to it” or “maybe that person has something attached to them.” I do believe in spirits, as I have had a lot of things happen to me. But obtaining paranormal proof by purposeful means seems very rare and unpredictable. The only times I have caught the paranormal on film have been NEVER and have not happened when actively trying to communicate through a board.)
