I already feel sort of silly for saying all of this, but I would like to see if anybody has experienced similar things. To be honest, I am an Atheist, and for many years I was skeptical about ghosts (yet I still found the topic to be interesting as a kid).
Just a few short years ago my sisters and I decided we would use a Ouija Board just for fun. We didn't believe anything would happen anyways, and sure enough nothing seemed to happen during each use. But a few days later some weird stuff started happening in/near the rooms we used it in (we used it about 3 times...).
In one of our bedrooms, a sister of mine started seeing a dark figure near where she kept the board itself, and in another room we used it in we started seeing a white figure occasionally (and we still do to this day).
Nothing happened for a while, but the strange activity picked up again. Another sister of mine was staying in a bedroom the board was once used in, and I woke up to her shrieking one night. I ran into her room and she said she saw a dark figure standing near her (this happened to her many more times).
My mother, out of curiosity, decided to stay in that room for the rest of the night with her and even brought a Bible along. Sure enough, just a few minutes later, I woke up only to hear BOTH of them shrieking, claiming they saw multiple dark figures standing around them. After that I returned to my room, and every surrounding light began to flicker even though they were not connected... By now we were all experiencing things.
Once again, nothing happened for almost a year, yet the activity came back even stronger than it had before. My mother was partially dragged out of her bed, and despite the fact that she took the day off from work, she decided to leave the house anyways (who wouldn't?).
Not too much longer after that one of my sisters, who was living in our basement at the time, began to hear and see strange things as well. One night she took her dog out to use the bathroom and, shortly after the dog ran inside, the entity closed and locked the door right in front of her before she went in, as if it wanted to be left alone with her dog. Strange things such as this happened that even made her 90lb husky go CRAZY. She had never heard him snarl until living down there.
After these two things the last year of activity has been mostly us hearing continuous scampering footsteps and dragging sounds along the carpet, as well as hearing weird voices talking in some sort of odd language. One of my sisters and I have also been suffering horribly from sleep paralysis since using the board too. Is this just coincidental or a side effect? We may never know...
We are unsure what the next big event to happen will be, but oddly enough we are not very bothered by these things anymore. By now we have nicknamed it "the goblin", and make light of the subject when odd things happen. We do have supplies given to us by a friend who specializes in cleansing houses, just in case we decide we must use it.
My family and I refuse to tell most people about these occurrences because they will probably think we are nuts, so I apologize for the length of this post... I would just like to see if similar things have happened to others. We were all skeptics until using a Ouija Board.
