So, even though I've tried many times, I've never been able to actually make a connection with a Ouija board. The strangest thing happened about 10-15 minutes ago, though. I was sitting in my dining room and decided to get my old board out. Now, normally I wouldn't do this in the middle of the day, but... I figured that since I've been reading a lot of Ouija board stories on this site, I was interested and may as well give it yet another try. What could it hurt, right?
Well, I went to my room and got my Ouija board from my closet. I had forgotten that the planchette was missing, but I figured that the top from one of my mother's old, empty pill bottles would work just fine, since it was just about the right size. So, I sat down at my dining room table and I put the board on the table. I lit a candle and started doing figure-8's with the cap, since I've been told that doing so is supposed to be a good way to start the board going. I'll put the questions and answers I got below, as though it were a script.
Me: Are there any spirits here that wish to speak? (asked several times, finally got a response after the 4th time)
Me: Are you from the sun or the moon? (supposedly, spirits can't lie about this)
Board: (cap starts going between sun and moon and back to the sun)
Me: Okay, okay. How many spirits are here with me right now?
Board: 5 (cap is starting to speed up, but just barely)
Me: Okay. Let's have just one of you speaking for a little while here so that we can actually talk. Why are you here?
Me: You committed suicide?
Me: Why did you kill yourself?
Me: Why did you kill yourself over files?
Board: (cap starts making circles between the bottom arch of letters and the row of numbers)
Me: Okay, let's try this again... Why kill yourself over files?
Board: WAIT FRONT DOOR
Then the front door to the building I live in opened (it's a slightly heavy door and I was sitting near the front of my apartment, which is on the first floor, so I could hear it easily) and there was a knock on the front door to my apartment.
I ran to put my Ouija board back in my room and covered it with a sweater. When I got back to the front door, it was a guy delivering Chinese food and was trying to find apartment A, which is actually directly below me. I'm a little scared to go back to finish the session, but I also didn't say good-bye, so I don't know what to do.
I'd appreciate any feedback with your thoughts about what the heck happened.
