My second most frightening paranormal experience happened with my ex boyfriend's brother. We were having a campfire at their step-dad's place; he lives on a farm so there is lots of forest around us as well as a large barn. The campfire was in-between the forest edge and the barn. My boyfriend at the time had gone to bed and me and A were chatting by the fire. I was telling him about my paranormal experiences, he was very interested in the unknown but had never experienced anything until that night. Upon further discussion of ghosts, he had asked me if I had used a Ouija board before. I replied yes but had never found them to work. He had one inside the house and wanted to know if I was open to using it. I agreed. He wished to try and contact his mother who had passed 5 years prior; she had also lived in the house we were at with their step-dad before she passed.
We took the board outside by the campfire; we used a shot glass as the 'oracle'. At first we attempted to use it with no luck; asking many questions, waiting for anything to happen. We messed with it for probably 15 or 20 minutes before the bang of thunder startled us. This was also weird because it was a clear night, completely clear and even when the thunder came there was not a cloud in the sky. Anyways, after the thunder happened, A freaked out and jumped away from the board. I also pulled away from the board and asked him what was wrong; he said that when he closed his eyes he saw a very vivid image of his mother, just for a split second. Just as he finished telling me that we both looked at the Ouija board and the shot glass was spinning. No one was touching it. Heck we both were about 2 feet away from the whole board itself when suddenly the glass flew into the woods; this is when we ran.
We started running towards the house until the pouring rain started; it came out of no where. So we both began running to the barn instead because it was closer. Upon reaching the barn we realized that there was no power. Initially I thought it was because of the rain, HOWEVER the power was still on at the house because we could see the lights on. We obviously ran to the house at that point. When we got in we tried to calm down in the kitchen, but then suddenly we heard music blasting from the basement. The stereo had turned on itself as no one was down there; the stereo happened to belong to his mother. My boyfriend at the time got up and wondered what was going on and we told him the story; we all stayed up all night after that.
I refuse to use a Ouija board now; I won't even bring one into my home. Which also leads me to think about something my aunt told me long ago (this is unrelated to my above story) - she always told me to never ever ever use a Ouija board. I always had an interest in the paranormal since I was little and wanted one - she warned me to never use one but when I asked her why, she said I was too young to hear and that she would tell me her story when I was a bit older. Unfortunately she passed away 10 years ago and I never got to find out what her story was, but I definitely won't be using a Ouija board anymore, I should have listened to her then.
I know this ending was a little off topic but ever since that experience it has plagued me that I never got to find out my aunts experience, I asked my mom but she doesn't even know.
