Shaking With the Ouija Board Pointer


My life is weird. I have the ability to see spirits, and communicate with them. I know how to access the spirit realm, using meditation, and I am very fond of the spirits I see regularly. Apparently, it is a gift. I have many spirit encounters that would frighten the average person quite a bit every month, but I have gotten used to them. And, for some reason, I can teach other people how to do this. I have taught three of my friends in the past. I know why I have these powers, but I will go into that in another story. This story is about one of my Ouija board experiences.

I have an Ouija board. For some reason, we can never find it when we want it, except on rare occasions like this one. A few years ago, me, my older brother and my older sister were using the ouija board, and we asked the ouija board a few questions. We found out his name was Earl, and he died in 1985. After about 15 minutes, I went and asked it a question. "How did you live your life?" First, The pointer started shaking, then, I started shaking with it. I wasn't breathing until my sister removed the pointer from the ouija board. I knew something like that was going to happed, since I am well known in the spirit realm. After that, I wasn't allowed to use the ouija board. But now, I want to do it more than ever. Can someone please tell me what I did to anger the spirit?

I know this was 14 years ago but I think I know what you did to anger that sprit.

I could be wrong but I think that some ghosts don't like to get asked what happened before they died.

I'm not going to tell you that the Ouji Board is bad because I think if you were to take that advice you would have done it by now. As for 'Earl' if I were dead and some person just asked me about my life, I'd be all "It's none of your business" but on the other hand 'Earl' might not actually be Earl.

I also think that the person you were talking to with the Ouija Board was trying to convince you to ease off the Ouija usage. Please e-mail me ASAP at lisa.miller55 [at] with instructions on how to see these spirits. I find the spirit world very interesting, and I am currently trying to prove to some friends of mine that there is such a thing as the spirit world. Like I said, please contact me ASAP.

thanks for sharing this story. Although, I find it kind of odd that your so sure of yourself. No one can ever be certain about paranormal activity and its different realms. I agree with Ohiowatha, don't go mess with things you don't/can't understand. 😐

I'm sorry that you feel you angered the spirit. I'm sure he was just angry and fustrated with his life and to think about it made him angry, or some spirits are just angry for certain reasons and take it out on the only thing they can- US! Thanks for the kule story and I would love to learn the gift. Could you please contact me at Lesleymango [at] because I've always wanted to learn and you may be my answer! Please please don't hesitate to e-mail me! 😳 😊

I have not read through the other comments, so please forgive me if I post something that someone else did.
First off, the spirit realm is so wide and vast, that it is possible that you ran into a spirit that really DID NOT know you. You may THINK that you are well known in that realm, and you very well may be, but that would be like me assuming that just because I have clients all through the community, that I am well known within it. That would be very vain of me to believe.
Second, I would think that someone FROM THAT REALM is trying to tell you to slow down on the Ouija use. Why else would it be hard to find every time you want to use it? I think that the reason it may have been easier for you to find on this occasion was that someone wanted to warn you of too much use.
We do not want to get "stuck" in the spiritual realm. There is a happy medium for those who chose to experience things and have the ability to do so. We need to be careful to keep things balanced. That sounds like some very good advice there from the board.
Thank you.

Portals are open when you use the Ouija Boards the first time. It don't close by itsself, and unless you know how it stays open.

So I would be careful now with that open.

You desperatly need to take into consideration the advice that some of the more experienced posters have given you. Ouija boards are serious tools used to gain access to things that are, more often than not, better left alone. You could very possibly open some doors that could be very dangerous for you and your family. So even if your not concerned with your own saftey, please think of theirs. Good Luck. 😐

If you can see spirits, why couldn't you see Earl and know why he was angry?

Ouija Boards, are just danger waiting to happen. One can't really be friends with the spirits. You never know what they may do or are capable of doing. You say you can't go back, and use the ouija board, did the spirit tell you that, or is that how you feel? As pepsicola stated, they can hurt you, you never know. Once a person states they know pretty much of the spirit world, and they get to sure of themselves, in the end something will happen, to show them they don't know all they thought they knew.

Well, maybe Earl became angry because he doesn't live anymore or maybe because his past wasn't very pleasant. Spirits were once alive, you know, and think about how someone with a disturbed past might react to a stranger asking about it? Actually, as a side -note, don't ever use that ouija board again. Heed the warning because if you may use it again, it may bring terrible things among you and your loved ones. Peace.

No offense, but I think your grasp of the paranormal is a little naive. This "science" is so nacent and mysterious, there's no way you can be so confident and sure of what you're dealing with.

Don't mess around with this stuff. You remind me of the guys in Raiders of the Lost Ark who think they understand the Ark, only to have it destroy them... And melt their faces.

Don't mess with what you CANNOT understand. Again, no offense, but nobody understands this stuff enough to "play" with it.

Thank you all for your comments. The more I try to resist the Ouiji board, the more it pulls me in. I may not be an expert on spirits, but I know more about them than the average man. Hopefully, I can remove the Ouiji board of my house So I am not tempted to try. And, recently, I have tried it, but nothing happened. At all. If anyone has any advice on what I did wrong, please let me know.

I think that you should definetly leave the ouiji board alone, how many times do people have to be told to leave them alone? I guess if your looking for trouble you'll find it. Thanks for your story though, wish you the best for the future. 😊

Just the fact that you write '...I am not allowed to use the ouijia board since", tells me you may not be as knowledgable as you profess to be regarding the "spirit realm". Even experts do NOT know everything there is to know, thus the term 'paranormal'.

I urge you to leave well enough alone and NEVER use the ouijia board again, I will say a prayer for you.

God Bless!

dude I also talk to the spirits and I often use ouija board. But I advise you not to anger the spirits as they can get very violent. I once had an encounter with a violent spirit and I have a scar on my lower lip where he basically knuckle dusted me in the face. So I have a very rough experience.

I am sorry to say you cannot be "fond" of the spirits you communicate (sp) with. Their intent is that you will think they are nice, wonderful people. They will be whatever you want them to. Until the time comes for them to reveal their true personality, don't get to attatched to the spirits.

Thank you for sharring your story. Even though you say you are very opened to spirits you should be very careful with the ouji board. Even the best never know who they are talking to or with. Very dangerous. They really like to play mind games. They really can change your world. I hope to hear from you soonand take care
