Night Terror? Or Demon?


I am 14 years old and I live in Runcorn although I am originally from Liverpool. I have used a ouija board once before this experience, but I am positive I used it and closed it properly. Although I realise that sometimes experiences like mine are called "Night Terrors" this one didn't feel right, here is my story.

One night I was awoken but I couldn't move properly, I could easily move my arms, legs, neck and head but I could not get up because my belly felt heavy and it was painful to even sit up and practicaly impossible, In the end I think I fainted, but I have never heard of night terrors being painful.

Another time after that, me and a friend were performing a Seance. Halfway through we started getting some pretty bad messages all directed to my friend. I was very calm during this as I knew how to sort it out and end it but before I ended it I found I was crying uncontrollably, although I was not feeling this emotion I somehow thought maybe I was feeling the spirits emotion? I'm very very confused, also I feel like there may be someone watching me of a night... During my time with the ouija board we encountered some bad spirits but we thought nothing of them. My other friends brother told me the religious view of a night terror is a incubus or succubus?

But I do no know what they were doing or whatever. Strange things happen in my bedroom as well, like my friend (the one who performed the ghost things with me) was adamant something climbed into bed with her whilst staying over in my house, (we were sharing and I had gone to the toilet).

Here's my solution:
NO more ouija boards!
NO more seances!
No offense, but since your CLEARLY not experienced with the paranormal, I suggest you stay away from the paranormal ENTIRELY! 😠
If you like, you can say a few prayers before you go to sleep but THAT'S ALL! 😠
Best of luck to you! 😊

I'm not interested in your spelling or grammar, but if you seriously have been messing with ouijas or seances, there are people here who can help you with cleansing rituals, if you have decided to stop, for good. Further, you need to stop playing around with the paranormal altogether since you know little about them. Don't for one minute believe you know how to protect yourself because there are people here a lot older and with more experiences than you will ever have and they are also looking for help!

What makes me a bit skeptical about you, however, is the fact that you sound interested in discussing incubus/succubus activities. 🤔

I do not want to sound snotty, but I do not need anyone correcting my spelling or speech, I put my experience up for help or advice not for a spelling lesson (this is particularly aimed at argette and nysa) you say its not personally at me but it is? I don't care about my spelling or speech I care about my experience and my mistakes which I am hoping to get advice for. Some of the comments on here I appreciate because they are helping me not lecturing me. I would appreciate it if you didn't correct me. 😐

I see that mistake a lot. People say should've & think they are saying should of, so that is how they write it. I think it is because young people (in general, not you personally Becky) don't read often. Reading well written books is the best way to learn to speak & write well. My personal pet peeve is when people say "try and (verb)." I want to ask them if they realize they are saying they will both try to do something & that they will do it? If you are going to do it leave the try out, if you are going to try, then you will try to, not try and do it. I know none of us have perfect grammatical skills, but misuse of words as if they don't carry meaning chaps my backside.

Sorry for the rant. Now back to your regular programming.

Oh, Becky, you need to speak the Queen's English: It's "shouldn't have," not "shouldn't of."

Oh, and please get a hobby that doesn't involve Ouija boards. Life will be a lot safer for you.

becky: If you're looking for advice, I suggest that you practice what you preach:

"Okay no problem! But really, when you think about it, although spirits may be scary if you don't let them take control they can't hurt you, I have made some mistakes as you can tell in my story, but my advice to you is just relax and TAKE CONTROL:) "

'Nuff said...

Please if your just going to lecture me don't bother. No offence meant to any of you I just don't appreciate being told off for something I already realise I should'nt of done... 😕

If it was a demon, you'd not have so much of a doubt.


I agree with Mabs.

Jeez. These stories like this make me mad. You should NEVER use a ouija board, and then to add to it, perform a seance for no reason! It doesn't matter if you shut it properly, you opened a doorway. This is some evil spirit and you need to STOP IT. I don't know why kids get the urge to do this, but it's stupid. Just talk to someone about it and stop.

I would suggest to try and shy away from contacting dead spirits by any means, even if they are safe. The thing is that you might open a door that you might not be able to close later, at least by yourself. I was curious about using the ouija board once but when I was about to use it, I literally heard a small voice like a whisper say no. Ever since then I've stayed away from them.

If it has something to do with the ouija board, I suggest you look for expert help, because you never know what you might be dealing with. It could be a stubborn spirit or it could be a demonic spirit posing as an ordinary spirit.

Omg that sounds scary! Have you tried telling your parents about it? Maybe they'll be mad but they'll be able to help you... 😢 maybe talk to a priest or something if possible and Don't use a ouijja board next time its like opening a portal and its really hard to send stubborn souls back -_-

I think that it may be a demon or poltergeist of some kind. I really don't think that you should never ever, ever use a Ouija, because that is a massive port hole for any ghost's, spirits,poltergeist's or dark demonic ghosts. All tho it seems harmless and you may think that you have closed it a lot of spirits of all kinds could have made personal connections to you, and may keep doing what they are doing. So I highly recommend to never use one again find another way of contacting the dead that is safe like using a candle or something. I have had a poltergeist before so if you need any help or advice just ask me and I will be very willing to help you.:)

Its not surprising that your experiencing these 'nigh terrors' and other encounters, esp after using an Ouija, not once but many times which I gather from your story.

Just trawl this site, click on Ouija and you'll find countleess stories of people having BAD and NEGATIVE experiences with spirits/entities after using the Ouija board.

Which brings me onto the question as to why? Why do you feel compelled to use a tool which is known to cause harm? No benefit will ever be derived out of using the Ouija Board, regardless of whether you close the session or not.

My only advice to you would be to STOP.
