Let me preface this story by saying that I am aware of the dangers of the Ouija board and I wish that I had never "played with it" in the first place. If I could turn back time and do it all over again, I would not even be in the same room as one of those things. I was, however, a teenager with no real knowledge of the dangers that using the board could present. I have a strong theory that although I stopped using it 13 years ago when I left home to go to college, that I am still paying for my mistake.
I began using the Ouija board when I was 13 years old with different groups of unrelated friends. I was always very skeptical, to the point of ignorance, regarding the ability of some "toy store game" having the ability to make real contact with the spirit world. Now mind you, I was very well aware of the spirit world, as I have been sensitive for as long as I can remember. I did not, however have any respect for the Ouija board and treated it as a game from the beginning. I eventually realized, a bit too late I am afraid, that what I was doing was the furthest thing imaginable from "playing a game."
The first few months when we would sit around and play, we would have different spirits communicate with us through the board that would be cheerful and would answer all of the usual questions (What is your name? When did you die? Where did you go after you died?). I didn't even think that we were contacting anyone. I was sure that one of the others in the group was pushing the planchette purposely or that it was the result of what skeptics called the ieomotor effect wherein participants move the planchette subconsciously.
As time went on, I would using the board more often, eventually escalating to the point of using it 4 to 5 days a week for hours a day. Nothing very disturbing would happen at first, but eventually, things gradually started to get darker and personally, my ability to sense entities seemed to be increasing. Forgive me if this gets a bit boring or voluminous, but I will do my best to sum up my experiences without having to write a book.
As I said, in the beginning we would get the transient spirits passing through and speaking to us for a short time. Eventually, a spirit that identified himself as Sam made his presence known and things started to become darker. He was not the jovial type that we had encountered in the past. He said he was in Hell and that he was going to take us all with him. I laughed being the skeptic that I was, but further into the conversation, I started to feel an evil presence in the room. So much so that I ended the conversation by forcing the planchette over "Goodbye" as he wouldn't leave willingly.
From that time on when we would use the board in that house, weird things would start to happen. The computer in Kathy's room would turn on by itself when we were sitting 10 feet away from it. Things in other rooms would fall inexplicably. Doors to rooms would slam shut by themselves, then open again. Everything except for the computer could be potentially explained off by wind blowing through the apartment. I had no knowledge of how to debunk these things at this time so I don't remember checking the windows to see if they were shut tight. However, I was sure what was causing it because I felt the presence in the house.
One notable encounter I had was with a spirit who identified herself as Anna. She seemed harmless enough, but she... Changed. She was a recurring spirit that would show up every time we used the board. She said she wanted to "be with me," whatever that meant. Then she started saying things that made no sense to me. Kathy asked why she wanted to be with me and she replied "K-I-N-G." So naturally, I asked her what she meant. She then said "H-E-L-L." Kathy laughed and said, "Oh maybe you are going to be the ruler of Hell when you die." The planchette moved to "Yes." Needless to say, I was freaked out at this point and while I know that couldn't be true, it shook me noticeably. Anna then said that I was hers and that she would stay with me forever. She threatened to harm Kathy if she was ever around me and tried to encourage me to use the board alone (which I never did). At this point, we both freaked out and we ended the session. Kathy stopped playing after that. I however did not. As I said, I became obsessed.
I started using another board at another friend's house. The first time we used it, it was the usual "harmless" conversation with "friendly" spirits. Then in the middle of the session, I felt a presence. I looked down the long dark hallway towards the front door and I saw a physical spirit. I wasn't afraid which was odd to me because it was the first time I had ever seen an entity instead of feeling it. I was mesmerized and staring off to my right watching a woman who seemed to be floating inches off the ground. My friend Veronica had been calling me and I didn't even hear her. She tapped me and said, "You can see her? She said that you two were looking at each other. I was speechless. I didn't know what to say and I just shook it off and we continued using the board and in comes Anna.
Now Kathy and my friend do not know each other. At first, I figured it could be a coincidence. It could be a duplicate name, but it was Anna. She asked if I remembered her. She called me her "King." She reminded me that she would always be with me. This coupled with seeing the woman by the front door was too much for me to handle. I wouldn't even go towards the front door. I went into her backyard, hopped the fence and headed home. I felt like I was followed the entire way.
Fast forward to today... I have always felt a singular, or multiple entitles everywhere I have lived. The last move I made just over a year ago, I did not feel any presences in my house for the first time in over a decade. About four months later, that all changed. Anna showed up. I don't really know how to explain that I know it is her, but the best way I can describe it is that she gives off a specific "signature" in the same way that all other spirits do.
She is not alone now either. There are other entities in my house as well. I have a feeling that I will always attract them for whatever reason.
