Hiya! I'm Katri, 23, from Lapland, Finland. I have had paranormal experiences happening to me all my life, and it really runs in our family, it seems. My great grandmother was a spiritual healer, for example.

I love reading, drawing, writing, riding, music, movies, animals, history, different cultures, etc.

I don't like wars [useless], animal testing, stupid/ignorant/self-centered/etc people, and other thins similar.

I have quite a zoo of pets; 2 dogs, 3 cats, 5 bunnies, 4 chinchillas, 1 tokay gecko and 1 turtle.

There's something about me, I guess (:

Through The Ouija Board, Part 3 on 2016-03-14

The first time I used the Ouija board with my oldest sister was a brief, but memorable one. This was back when I was around 14-15 years old, and had already been through some experiences I have written about before. We have always been very spiritual and also into all things some call "paranorma...

Through The Ouija Board, Part 2 on 2016-02-24

After the first time me, my sister and our best friend used the board, we didn't touch it for a while. We were all pretty overwhelmed with what had happened, and it took it's time to fully sink in. But after some time, me and my bestie started to feel an urge (if you can call it that) to test the bo...

Through The Ouija Board on 2013-05-21

After the apparition I saw and told you about in my last post, we started discussing about spirits and other so called paranormal stuff with my best friend and family. Everyone had some sort of story to tell, quite interesting ones at that. Anyway, some time passed without any significant encounters...

Neighbours on 2013-05-08

This is the first ghostly experience I had since I was but a small child, and let's face it, I can't really recall the earliest of them all. I can't say which one of those are real since as a child, I really didn't pay much attention to all things paranormal. So let's start my collection of experien...

Hi you all and Thank You for your comments! I appreciate all of them:)

Thanks for Miracle for pointing people to the direction of my previous stories, they are all linked in a way, since me being the perfectionist I am, I like people to know how this all started out and what got me to the point we are in this story:) So Thank You!

The_Ghost_of_Mark_Whatney >> Glad you liked the cliffhanger; I thought it suited this one nicely! ^^ I try and post the next one as soon as possible!

It is indeed like you said, I think; you can never know who contacts you, and if the spirit is a positive or a negative one. You can do all you can to ward off the evil spirits, but they sometimes still pass, as has happened to us. They might not show their true nature right away, so you just have to go with it and trust your gut with this. As always in life, if something feels wrong, don't do it and get rid of it.

I haven't used the board with much people who believe they don't have the so called "sixth sense". The ones who least thought they would are probably my best friend and the friend of hers I wrote about in my previous story. And their experiences are both, I guess, the one in which only the two of them playing being the negative one my best friend has had. I think the only way for them to have more negative experiences than the ones with the sixth sense, is by them not following the rules and disrespecting the spirits, as well as being negative themselves in general. Negativity feeds negativity, so one could presume that if a person with lots of negative feelings uses the board, they draw the evil spirits in, for I think spirits can feel the energy surrounding them and feed off of it, in the case of the bad ones at least.

So, by being careful with the board - or any means you contact a spirit with -, doing your research, respecting the spirit as you would any other being, doing safety precautions and keeping your own energy in check, I think anyone can minimize the risk of getting negative and bad experiences out of communicating with the spirit world.

Mhannerism >> Thank You for the comment, this one did creep me out when it happened, and still does when I think about it! And yes, my friends were being childish, which is not a good thing when dealing with things you can't be sure of how they respond.

Hope you like my other stories and stay tuned! Take care yourself as well!

AugustaM >> I think, in this particular case, the thing that responded by scratching the wall did not come through the board, but it merely activated it. The room, my old room which we were in, is one of the most active in the whole house, and this is not the first time people have heard or seen things in there.

Story time! Some back story for that area. Before there was two bedrooms, mine and one of my sister's, the area used to be our bathroom and sauna, with a linked in dressing room and this very creepy, super dark attic space with - for reasons unknown since it was creepy and I was afraid of it as a child - a heavy, iron door, the ones you can see in a cold room in restaurants, the butchers, etc. There was even this smudge on the door that looked like dried blood. Icck. No wonder I saw nightmares of that area in our house when I was little.

Anyway, when our mother was a young girl, they once came home at winter. No one had been home for hours, but when they opened the front door, there was thick, snowy shoeprints going from the door and up the stairs. They followed, my mother and her mother, the prints up the staĆ­rs, where they took a turn to left and straight to the bathroom area. They stopped at the very back, in the sauna, and vanished. There were no prints coming back, the window was closed, and the sauna was upstairs, so there was no other way out. They never got to knew to whom those prints belonged to, since there is no logical explanation who could have gone in to a locked house and get out of there without unlocking anything.

The other story is, this one also upstairs but in the other most active room, when my mother was home and thought there was someone else there too with her. She heard a noise coming from this little space where she had a cot in - her favourite, quiet reading spot. She thought it was one of her sisters, so she went to look. Upstairs, she could hear something which sounded like book pages being turned. Going in to her reading spot, the noise suddenly stopped, and when she poked in, the space was empty. But on the cot, there was a magazine, open, like someone would have just been there, reading it. But there was no way someone could have gotten out of there before my mother saw them, since it was a small space with only single entry, and my mother was blocking it. No logical explanation was ever recovered for that experience either.

And then, my oldest sister was probably about 9 years old, and they slept in that other most active room with my second oldest sister who was about 6, which happened to be right across from my old one (which was still the bathroom/sauna back then - we renovated the house at 2004). One night, she had suddenly woke up. And what woke her up was this loud, deep, sinister sounding laughter of a man coming from the sauna! She had been scared crapless, and went on to wake my other sister up, but by the time she woke the laughter had stopped. She never heard that again, not to my knowledge.

So, as you can see, a lot has happened in that area long before anyone used the board. Of course, at one point before the shoeprints, our grandparents did rent half of the upstairs to strangers - and you can probably guess which half x3 I know there once lived this older fellow, alone; he was a bit of a hermit. I think back then there possibly was another exit out of the house, but I can't say for sure. And then there was some other family at one point. None of them died in there, thought, not to my knowledge at least.

My mother, when she used the board in her youth, used it in someone else's house. But I can't vouch that none of her sister did it there, or that none of the other residents dappled into the "supernatural". But I am sure there is a spirit hot spot in the house, since in the other active room and onto the upstairs landing that separates the two active rooms, there is this maybe two meters wide area that shoots through them that things like bed shaking and jumping and covers being pulled hard, happens all the time. And of course me being the unlucky bastard I am, I have had a bed on that spot in both the room and the landing (and at the same spot in the other room too), and I have experienced both the rocking bed as well as my covers being slowly pulled off of me. I even pulled back, and struggled to win, since the other one pulling was so stong. That was creepy.

I should try and look up if I could find some info about what was on the spot the house was built on, before that happened. Now I stop ranting, since this is turning into a novel:D Thank You!

RANDYM >> Hello and Thank You! ^^ Glad you enjoyed them:)

I think you are right. Our mind is a powerful tool, and believing in things send out energy:) I have been fascinated in trying to contact the spirits through other ways as well, the recorder, psychic drawing, etc. My oldest sister has tried the drawing method, where you let the spirit draw on paper by using your hand, and has gotten some pretty good results too! I haven't tried that, because of personal reasons that have something to do with me being most likely possessed shortly at one point, I don't feel comfortable with inviting spirits to use my bodyparts x3

And I agree with you. To me, spirits are like people. They were people, most of them anyway, at one point, so I don't really see the difference other than one still possessing a body and one not.

And yes, like I said before, I also believe that it had nothing to do with the board per say, it just lured the spirit into action:) And I can't believe someone voted your comment down, I think you spoke truly! Thank You for that, I think we are on the same page with this one!

Macknorton >> I agree with you, and of course with RANDYM. I like the board, because it is so simply and clear. You can see the answers right away, whereas with the recorder and EVP, you usually have to go the tape over with computer to fish the answers. So, in a way, I think Ouija is a more direct way to have a real conversation with the spirits. Of course, if you are powerful enough and hold a seance, that is a different matter:)

And yes, when you focus your mind and energy towards a goal, you usually are successful. So when you concentrate fully into the desire to communicate with the spirits, I think a sort of gateway opens and you are more receptive for the spirits to come forth and contact you. Same with or without the board, the board can just operate as a sort of consentration point you can direct your mind and energy towards:)

But Thank You all once again for these amazing comments! I appreciate your views and thoughts conserning my stories and experiences, and I hope I do not let you down with my answers:)
Hiya all again, and sorry for being a bit unactive! So, let's start with the comments...

Spiritwaiting >> Thank You for commenting! Leaving aside what is a good way to communicate with spirits and what is not, since there is as many opinions as there is people doing so, and everyone has their favourites and the ones that work best for them, I shall skip ahead.

First, just to make things clear, my former childhood home, which is the active one, and the one we saw Juhani in, are two different houses. We saw Juhani in my best friend's house, me first, my sister after the session. So, when I first saw him (and I was the first to do so), it was a whole different day, weeks before the first time we decided to use the board. It was around 10am, and I saw him plain as day, in the sunlight. I know it was him, since after that I described what I saw to my mother, who said it was Juhani, whom she had known when he still lived (around the time my mother was a young girl). So, when we used the board and the spirit said who he was, of course I had a healthy amount of scepticism, since I can't really know if it is him or not. But I have always trusted my gut and instincts, since they have never let me astray, and when I felt the energy was warm, friendly and welcoming, I had no reason to doubt him. He was a good person when he lived, and I have no reason to believe he has changed in the afterlife, since he has never done anything to anyone from beyond to scare or hurt them.

My sister saw him in the dark, when she woke in the middle of the night, and she recognized his appearance by what I had said I saw and what our mother had told us. And when she saw him, he was just watching and smiling, and she didn't see him for long.

After that I have seen Juhani in their, my best friend's, house through a window when I was checking if she was coming out since we walked to school together every day. It was dark inside their house, but the curtains were up throughout, and I saw his silhouette walk past their kitchen window, right behind her brother who didn't notice a thing. I have no reason to assume it is anyone else, since the looks and behaviour match Juhani's, plus my best friend said that her brother - after a while - started to sense something in his room which happened to belong to Juhani when he was still alive. And my friend's brother is not too much into paranormal, so he wasn't aware of anything that we had seen, heard or done.

What I described in this story is a clear change of spirit in the middle of the session. I am in no way saying it is Juhani whom was suddenly acting so strange - and the feelings I got indicated that it was not, indeed.

The reason I decided to give my best friend one more shot with the board is because she is just that - my best friend. And I knew she would do it on her own anyway, or with someone like the other person I describe in the story. So, being a person who gives people more changes usually than they deserve, I gave her one.

I think the reason she was acting so carefree with the board is that somehow she still had the mindset so many do that it was, in fact, just a game, when it clearly is not. So, thinking she had learned her lesson the first time, I had no idea she would do something like that again. And the questions and the disrespect she and her other friend showed the time I wasn't involved but watching, I seriously thought she would have more sense than that. Good thing I did get them to stop eventually. I just couldn't force them, and me grabbing the board in the middle of a session could've had catastrophic consequences.

And you are right, I cannot know for sure, but I have seen her since, I am able to keep track of her life since we are friends in social media, and judging by the success she has had in life, it at least appears she is good. I think, if something really bad would have happened, and kept happening, she wouldn't be so like what she is. This kind of experiences, especially very powerful ones, leaves a mark on you and I think a keen eye can see that mark if one looks closely.

And I think RedWolf was being rude. I have always been against playing with the board, so when someone accusses me of such actions without knowing me personally, based on a few stories online, I think that is being rude. And since I'm alive and standing here, writing about my experiences a decade later, everyone else being alive and well also, I think I deserve a bit more respect than random people assuming I played with it and caused mental or other problems to other people. Everyone I have used the board with has done so willingly, out of free will; I have never forced anyone to do so, so if anyone should get problems out of it by not following the rules, I can't see how that is my fault.

Miracles >> Thank You for your comment, you are right. I am not against people telling others they should not try and use the board, but I am against how those said people spread out the message. I think it's just pot calling the kettle black when some people come and accuse others of being stupid and just playing etc, when they have done the exact same thing, and some of those preachers have actually done worse than the ones they are stomping to the ground. In this age of information, people can find the Do's and Don'ts much easier than, for example, back in the day when my mother and her friends used the board (but the version where you use glass as planchette).

I don't know how many understands that when I used the board for the first time, I was - I think - maybe around 15 years old. And I am 24 years old now, and have not used the board in many years. I was well informed on the subject, as was my sisters and how my best friend should have been since we read everything conserning the board together, and was taking every precaution we felt necessary.

I understand people want to warn others and keep others safe. But saying it to a full grown adult like you are talking to a child is offending, and not the best way to get your message through, since I have found it always creates resistance to the said message. I was raised to be polite to everyone, familiar people and strangers alike, so I despise rudeness and I hate people who assume things of people they are in no way familiar with.

I don't encourage people to use the board, but I won't tell them not to. If a grown up person wants to do something, no one can tell that person otherwise. I just hope everyone intending to do so takes the time to research the matter further and take precautions. Becuase like you said, not everyone have bad experiences, and you can get rid of the bad spirits or deny them access altogether.

Macknorton >> Thank You for your ten cents!

I have heard stories, warning stories, regarding the Ouija board from my mother since I was a child. So I was familiar with the board from early age, althought at that time - at least here in Finland - there was no real boards available, so people wrote the letters etc themselves and used a glass as a palnchette. Well, since the information was scarce at that time, they didn't know what should and should not be asked, and she had some bad experiences. Not herself, the spirits were very accurate, telling her accurately how many kids she would have and who she would marry years before it happened. But her sister had a bad one (which ended positively, thank goodness), as well as one of her friends. So I had a very good idea of the dangers coming with using the board unproperly many, many years before using one myself. And so did my sisters, who also had heard the stories many times over the years.

So, being that I had heard of it, I always had a interest of trying to communicate with the spirits myself. And I wasn't the only one in our family. It started out as a mere interest to try if the board would actually work, since even thought it had worked with my mother and many more, I had also heard stories of nothing happening. So even thought I did believe in the afterlife already, with me seeing spirits before, I still was not 100% convinced the board would actually work with everyone. So it started out as that.

After seeing myself that it did work, I wanted to communicate with them. Whoever of them that felt like they had something to say, something to tell me (or us, since I don't believe you should use the board alone, and never have I). We blocked the bad ones out the best we could from early on, and if a sinister feeling energy did pass our barriers, we banished it back to wherever it came from. So we did manage to keep the communication going with the ones that did at least not appear to be evil quite well.

My goal, when using the board and if I ever use it again, is to see if I can actually help the spirits out. We did, four of us sisters, manage to solve a cold case murder from decades ago with using the board. We accidentally got a hold of the young girl's spirit who has murdered in the city we live in and who's killer had never been caught. That was a very intense experience, I think what made it so was that there was so many of us using the board at the same time and we are all very highly sensitive. I have not used the board since, that was something so powerful I have never felt anything like it, nor have I had such a strong psychic vision before that, so it kind of exhausted my energy levels and I decided to take a break. But more of that later, in a full story of what happened.

So yes, now that I saw there is actual help for the spirits in for using the board correctly, that is what I would like to do in the furute. So the spirits can get some closure, no matter how long since they passed.

But I hope these answers will suffice for the time being! Keep commenting, I like to read what you all think - just keep it clean and let's have a healthy amount of respect towards each other:)

RedWolf >> I don't play with Ouija boards, I communicate with spirits through them. What my friend and her friend do with it, that is out of my hands. And yes, when me and my sister/s have used it after that time, we have made a protective circle around the board and ourselves, and denied all bad entities from entering it. If so has happened that a spirit that has felt wrong to us has somehow gotten inside, we have banished that immediately, ending all contact with it.

We are well aware of the risks that comes with using the board and have never taken using it lightly or without precaution. I'm well aware that my friend's friend is living a full life, so there was no psychologinal damage done to her. And me myself, my friend, and my sisters are all well, despise all that has happened.

I don't appreciate your style of assuming things about me based on this one story alone. I resent people who just "play" with Ouija boards, since it is not a game and should not be approached as one. And I don't blame the board for anything, our house has always been active, which is one of the reasons me and my sister/s decided to use the board in our house later. And my friend's house, well, Juhani has been there for a long time, and still remains there, but he is harmless. He was a good person while he lived, and he is that still.

And the board me and my friend used, my friend got rid of it a very long time ago. I should add, when we first used the board, me and my friend were 14-15 years old. And now I'm turning 24 soon. I still have the board somewhere me and my sister/s used, althought I haven't used it since maybe 2011 or something like that, I can't remember the year specificly.

But yes, be blunt all your want, but I think there is a line between being blunt and being rude. Since you don't know me. But I can assure you, I am very well aware of everything spiritual, I am a pagan (a witch some would say, in a lack of better term - not a wiccan), have been for a very long time and even before all paranormal started happening to me. So I am well aware of protective spells, circles, chants and all that before doing anything.

Hideaway >> I have, and I had. I, and we, have always been well aware of everything that may go wrong, and we have taken that risk using the board. It is everyone's own decision, and I'm not against that someone uses the board, if they knowledge the risks, make their research properly before using the board, and take precations. Things can still go wrong, but it minimizes the risks at least to some level.

I do believe evil exists, I have encountered evil, both in people and in paranormal area. But I don't think I need a priest. Besides, where I live, the faith does not perform exorcism, althought it is a form of christian religion. If I need the house purified, I do it myself, like me and my sister have done for years - successfully, might I add:) The board I get rid of if and when I want to do so. It cannot hurt me, it's just a piece of cardboard without us channeling energy into it.

Thank You all for your comments! (: And apologies for the late response...

Livinit2: Thank you (: We have used the board several time after, two times with my best friend, and the rest with my sister/s. We have always been very careful, taking necessary precautions (if there can be any bullet proof ones), and luckily, nothing bad has happened. I will post more of our Ouija-experiences in the future!

Swimsinfire: That is true, I believe. They can cause grief and terrible things, for what I have heard, if you treat it like a game and do not respect the spirit you are dealing with. We usually make a protective cirle around ourselves and the board nowdays, that should prevent negative energy entering through the board. We didn't thought of that at the time when this story's events happened, nor two of the times that followed; only after that, me and my sister (who are both pagans of sort) decided to start creating one. Plus we always say Goodbye before we take our hands of the board; that should seal it so no spirits can use it as a portal to physical world. And we never leave the pointer on the board; that can work as a portal too, or so they say. Better be safe than sorry, so we do not leave it on the board, nor take our hands of it before saying Goodbye (:

Groovieghoulie: That's a horrid experience! I can understand why you have decided never to use one again, and that is a wise decision! If you have any doubts or fear, you shouldn't use an Ouija-board, for the negative spirits can feed off of that frightened energy...

CharyWithThePoltergeists: Thank you for commenting (: The spirits, although some has been nastier, haven't done anything bad yet - thank goodness! And the name of the site we used back then is >> http://www.museumoftalkingboards.com/WebOuija.html - if I remember correctly, that is the site we went through before using the board for the first time:>

WeScorchedTheSky: Thank you for your recommendation, I shall look that book up! (:

Thank You for all the comments (:

Allesgute: I also had the understanding that spirits can turn up and show themselves at any given time of the day/night. And I do have more experiences that have happened during the morning and day!

Fergie: Yes, it was quite a alarming sight at first. I couldn't do anything for a while but stare upstairs!

SmokenMirrors: Yes, that might be what's going on in there (:

VSAngels: It really was a interesting sight, althought a bit shocking at first (:

Amihet: Really, he did...? That's interesting! And I'm sure to post more of my experiences later. There's quite a lot of them, but I try my best! And I try to put them on in somewhat chronological order (:

Zeta: Thank You ^^ I do try to be honest; I don't have a reason to lie or make up any stories. My experiences are quite enough for me, and I do hope people will not think of me as somekind of a liar!

Valkricry: Yes, that is indeed how it might be (: I have other encounters revolving around this same young man... Or I assume they have happened with the same spirit; if not, then some other spirit has been trying to fool me!

But more experiences will follow, and I appreciate every comment! (:
