I have been reading comments of Ouija board usage and I though I would post my experiences when I was younger. As a teen I was given one for a present and used it and had fun, don't remember that we contacted spirits but I was amazed on how it moved on the board when we barely touched it.
Years later I was in my 20's, a friend of mine told me she thought that her apartment was haunted. So one night we decided to see if we could confirm that it was really was haunted.
She told me that she would notice that the light over her table would sway back and forth and I did notice it move slightly but we were facing a main street and I commented that maybe the traffic was causing it to swing but after watching it for a while it did move and no cars were passing by.
She said she saw a face in a bare light bulb in the living room, and if you stared at it for a while I think you would see a face, there were other strange happenings so we decided to use an Ouija board to see if we could contact someone or something.
There were 3 of us there that night, my friend, her sister-in-law and me. Actually if you want to get technical I was pregnant with my daughter so there were 4 souls there.
When my friend and her sister-in-law tried to use the board it would not move to answer any questions but when I touched it, it would fly across the board and spell out messages.
Well I don't know if there was really a spirit there because a full story came to me in my mind and then it played out on the board. I wondered if I was controlling it and making up the story that was in my head or was I receiving a message before the board spelled it out.
The story was about a poor maid that got pregnant by her employer and was kept captive in the attic of the house we were in and when she had the baby they told her that it died but they really took it from her and gave it away. (Sounds like a cheap novel doesn't it)
We tried to look up history about this story but there had been a fire that destroyed records from that time frame of the story. So we could never prove or disprove the story.
One thing my friends questioned was why the board worked so well when I took hold and in my mind I thought because I was making up the story and controlling it but the answer we got was that I was of 2 souls and it was easier to communicate through me. Needless to say, I let go, vowing never to use it again because I was afraid for my unborn child.
