I guess I should start from the beginning. Since the age of two I have always experienced ghost, spirits and so on. The first experience I can remember clearly and precisely was at the age of six while sitting outside on the swing set in my backyard. I remember having a conversation with my deceased great great grandfather on my mother's side. I had always had conversations with him and it freaked my mother out because when he died I was one and did not know his name or really who he was and they never talked about him around me, but all of a sudden I knew who he was and was constantly talking about him. He appeared to me and I got so terrified I ran into the house and since then I have not seen anything but I sure have heard and felt them!
My grandmother's house known for being haunted since my mother and aunts and uncle were children, has constantly spooked me. Incidents that happened to name a few the attic door in the ceiling and ladder have been opened and pulled down, my uncle's old toy cars would be set up in the attic like someone was playing with them, things would go missing and be found in drawers everywhere around the house, footsteps down the hall etc. When I would sleep over I would always feel something sit on the bed and lay down next to me. One time throw pillows on a chair were picked up and tossed across the room. Eventually, not because of the house, my grandparents moved and nothing happened for a while and I sort of just forgot about the whole thing until my silly teenage self randomly came across a Ouija board that belonged to my Aunt.
My brother and i, me being about 15 at the time, being curious decided to try it out only thinking we ask the questions and when we are done say goodbye. There was one point where we did not have our hands on the planchette as it was spelling out the answers. Scared to death we ended the game and I put it in my closet. For a few days the closet stayed freezing cold and the light in the closet would continually turn on and off. Being the petrified chicken I am I explained everything to my mom and her being a believer herself decided we should get rid of it but mentioned burning it because throwing it away would only make it return, myth or not we aren't completely sure, but when I tell you we completely soaked the board in lighter fluid and it DID NOT burn the fire simply gathered on top of the board and just burned like it was waiting for us to roast marsh mellows or something, it didn't even turn black from burning! We broke it into pieces and threw it away and afterward we didn't have any problems. That was incident one and as if I hadn't learned my lesson then my stubbornly curious self brings us to incident two.
A friend of mine and i, at this time I was about 19, decided to purchase a newer Ouija at our local toy 'r' us and again try my fabulous luck. Nothing extremely frightening happened and again I stored the board in my closet. For two weeks every time I was in my room I felt sad and depressed and when I would leave I felt normal, weird or coincidence maybe but I can't remember how I got rid of the second board but I did and everything was fine afterward.
Now to begin with incident three. Is the third time the charm who knows? I am now 23 and weeks ago, for some unknown reason, I began researching any and everything about Ouija boards from stories to rules and tips the origin the history anything you can think of and being the genius I am (ha ha) purchased a vintage 1960's Ouija. I was waiting impatiently for it to arrive and out of a dead sleep I kid you not in pajamas and all I felt it was here and jumped out of bed at 3:45 in the afternoon, after a long night out with friends, and ran to the back door where the box was sitting. Eagerly I took it in and with my 16 year old brother watching I opened the box which was accompanied by a gust of cold air which did not scare me but only excited me! That night we brought the board to my friend Kelly's apartment accompanied by my mom and younger brother to try my first experiment this time completely prepared and ready. Once in the door with our white candles and my mom's secret stash of holy water hidden in her purse, we set everything up. We turned off all TVs and phones, turned out the lights, lit the candles, said the protection prayer and began. First it started off with me and my mom asking if there were any spirits present that would like to speak to us... After about 20 minutes the indicator began to jerk extremely slow to yes before going off the board. After everything I read I was warned that if it did go off the board to end session immediately and wait a while before beginning again because this was a way for spirits to come from the board into your space.
Second session was Kelly and I we asked the same question as before and nothing happened after waiting 30 minutes. We ended waited a while and tried again with me and my brother. This time we blind folded ourselves. We felt it was easier to keep our minds clear if we weren't looking at anything and this way we couldn't see numbers or letters so it seemed the answers would be more legit rather than our subconscious answering for us. My mom volunteered to write down what was said and keep us aware of what we couldn't see. So we asked are there any spirits who would like to chat... With more speed it went to yes... We then asked if it were a male it said yes... We asked the name and it spelled VIF... Thinking it was initials we asked are these your initials and while in transit to yes the indicator stopped and a tingle went through my fingers. I took my hands off the planchette and so did my brother. Our fingers were hovering over it and we were about to place them back on when my mother said stop the board is spinning. I replied what do you mean the board is spinning and she answered the entire board is spinning in circles freaked out my brother took off his blindfold to watch and I still had mine on... When it stopped we put our hands back on the indicator and it went straight for the end of the board before my brother pressed hard against it and we ended the session for the time being said the closing prayer blew out the candles and left to go home.
I do not live with my mom I live with my grandparents and my brother was staying over for the weekend and my grandpa being against Ouija boards wouldn't let us play there. With me still not completely satisfied with our sessions, I decided to secretly set up in the spare room and try with just me and Tyler (my brother) and see what we get. This time the indicator moved rather quickly are there spirits here who would like to talk answer was yes... Are you male and the answer was yes what is your name and it spelled out VIF again... Are these your initials and the answer was yes. I then asked what is your first full name and it spelled out VINCENT... I asked if we knew him and it answered yes. I then asked what year were you born and it answered 1937. I must confess that I was thinking the name Vincent and 1937 before and after asking the questions. After this the candles began flickering a lot more than usual which freaked out my brother and he began to get a bad feeling but I did not and didn't want to stop but I figured he was only scared because it was dim in the room so he turned on the light and we tried to continue with the light on but nothing happened. We closed the session said the prayer and put the board AGAIN into the closet but this time it wasn't my closet it was the closet in the spare room.
That night my brother slept with me and nothing out of the ordinary happened. Still not convinced I was beginning to think everything was a coincidence and I wasted money again on a Ouija until last night.
I was lying in bed watching TV when a shadow was on my wall it startled me at first and then quickly I thought it's something in the room making the shadow from the TV or clock. I waved my arm in front of the clock and I saw my arm move on the wall and breathed a sigh of relief. I lay back down and started watching TV until I heard what sounded like someone in slippers dragging their feet down the hall. I am a person who must always sleep with the closet door closed and also the bedroom door for fear of seeing anything I don't want given my infamous pass so I wait for the door to open thinking it's one of my grandparents coming to talk to me and no one ever comes so I go to open the door to see if they are up and no one is. I closed the door and heard it again. I opened the door quickly turned on the hall light and nothing. I closed the door turn on my light, turn down the TV and wait to see if I hear it again and I don't but I do feel my hair being messed with. I ran my hand down the back of my head and again my hair comes to the side like someone is playing with it like they grabbed it from the back and swiped in to the side to rest on my shoulder (no the fan is not on). I was scared but not really it's hard to explain. After that I got up grabbed my rosary, prayed. I sprinkled holy water on the rosary and around my room turned off the lights, (keeping the TV on of course) and tried to sleep.
I AM TIRED! Because of course I barely got any sleep but I will not get rid of the board because I feel it is a way to open myself up again I don't feel anything bad is around and I don't intend on using the board alone or in a bad or disrespectful way so my conclusions are to get over my fear and to continue to have sessions and see where it goes. I feel emotionally ready to deal with the experiences I have been having my entire life. Crazy maybe but I am too intrigued with the things I have experienced in the past and the things that I have learned, to stop investigating the spirit world. So as time goes on I will be sure to keep everyone updated on my findings and experiences.
