Hey there! Finally I have got this site to get rid of my incident which I have had with the ouija board last year.
It happened in 2011.07.21, we were four friends (lets name them A, B, C and myself Me). We were at B's house enjoying our weekend where suddenly B mentioned that she always felt that someone was watching her and sometimes she noticed through mirrors a figure is walking around. As she was worried and asked a way to help herself (there I made a big mistake!) so I simply mentioned about the OB just saying people use it to communicate with the spirits but it is not good and she knew about it but still wanted to take the risk.
My other friend A got excited and insisted we do it, so she sent her brother C to the shop to get a big white chart and he did. A is good in making craft items so it was easy for her to make an OB neatly. So everything was ready and they stick the OB chart on the matress and a small glass to play. I was worried as it was my first time and theirs too.
Here we sat around, B in horror called her maid to join us and she did. Mind you B doesn't have a window in her room, but the A/C was on. A took the lead and asked," is there any spirit in this room? " she repeated it 5 times but nothing happened, the candle behind me was kind of went gloom and back to the previous state as it was. We thought its because of A/C.
Maid left and switched off the A/C while exiting and there A left the OB without closing the session. We were looking at each other and C was not at all worried and gave a confuse expression as if want to say A and B were silly. I wasn't saying a word.
Trouble again! A and B wanted to start again and they did, we sat around this time only we 4. A goes- " is there anyone in this room? Please give me a sign..." nothing happened, she repeated it 3 times yet nothing happened! So we were silent for 2 minutes looking at each other with fingers on the glass.
The candle started going crazy as if someone trying to blow it out and next second I felt someone climbing on the bed from my right side giving slight shake and next second C felt someone tingling his neck from back and next second B and A felt heaviness on their shoulders. A finally closed the session, I yelled at them and made them to tear the chart and put it in fire and me and C were cleaning the remaining chart papers which A and B cut off before making the OB. Suddenly B called me and I ran to the kitchen, to my wonder I saw the OB peices which were set to fire wasn't completely burning but shining bright!
Papers weren't burning faster, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. A, B and C were terrified and so I, just to console them I threw the idea of the chart been a bit thick paper so it looks like crystal surrounded by fire.
To prove them I brought a big peice of paper out of remaining ones and set it on fire. It was a BANG! To my head to see it burning within seconds while the shining ones were still burning and took more than 30 minutes to burn.
NOTE: I put the unused paper after 5 minutes.
After that day nothing unusual happened but B's feeling of being watched didn't stop.
What was that? Was there anything that the shining of OB chart took place? What should I take it as?
Thanks for reading.
Why the story made me think of my own "ouija" experiments, was because finnish kids made their boards themselves back then (boards are not sold here and it was before you could print one from the internet) and used a glass as a planchette. It would be interesting to collect different cultural beliefs and habits of teenagers worldwide conserning ouija. On the other hand, nowadays knowledge moves so incredibly fast, that many cultural variations may cease to exist: (Ok, and now I lost the subject entirely again.
