To start off, I'm 14 years old. I'm from the Harrisburg area of Pennsylvania and have been pretty much my whole life. Soon after my 14th birthday, in October, I developed an interest into Ouija boards and the paranormal all together.
For a while I was only interested out of curiosity. As I looked more into, and read others experiences (good and bad) I had the urge to play and experience it for myself.
I was kind of embarrassed that I was so interested in something that seemed so out of the ordinary, and decided to make my own Ouija board. I would attempt to use it myself, and it wouldn't work. So, I finally asked my mother if I could purchase the "Glow in the Dark" Ouija board from Spencers gifts, surprisingly she agreed. I decided I wanted to buy one because I assumed the homemade board didn't work because it was homemade.
I did end up taking it to a friends house and playing it for the first time there. The experience wasn't at all what I imagine. It was boring! I was kind of disappointed and kind of forgot actually using, and decided in looking into its history and more about it for a more exciting experience the next time.
A few weeks later, I slept at another friends house. I brought my board. We waited a while before playing so we could get the ultimate "spook factor". My two friends and I started playing around 3:00 AM. We contacted a spirit, that didn't go by any name at all. I knew this was bad, but I really wanted to experience something great so I ignored this and didn't say anything.
We talked to this spirit for well over an hour and a half. It seemed really nice, told us we were pretty, and funny. Of course, not knowing as much now, I believed it. We gave this spirit too much trust, especially for how little we talked to it. We asked it if it would like to ask US something. It quickly moved to, yes. Then very quickly spelled out "Get f***ed". I quickly moved the planchette to goodbye. Explaining to my friend how it was a demon, and that if I wouldn't have moved it to goodbye we could have risked much danger.
In between that time and the time in my next experience, I attempted to use it again by myself, then gave up. I knew I just can't, and I shouldn't do so anyway.
About a month or so after, I slept at yet another friend's house and brought the board with again. Her mother was telling us how she also played the Ouija board at a sleep over when she was young, and was tormented by a little girl spirit. She explained to us that the little girl would be in her dreams, and stand over her while she was in her bed at night. We ignored this and played anyway.
It took us about ten or fifteen minutes to finally contact a spirit. We got the name Penelope. Obviously a female spirit. She told us she was six years old and died in a car crash sometime in the late 1800's. We were a little confused by this because we weren't completely sure if cars where even invented then.
We continued. We asked a bunch of questions and then I finally blurted out "touch me!" it quickly spelled out "OK". At the last minute I changed my mind. However, I asked it to tell us how it would physically show us that it was here. It spelled out "Light up October's phone". Me and my friend watched for about 15 seconds before amazingly seeing my phone light up all by itself.
As you would guess we were frightened, but kept going. Eventually we just took a break. Then later contacted my friends grandpa, and an old classmate. (So they said, anyway.)
Only a month- if that, ago a bunch of my friends came over and we played the Ouija board. A lot. For about the next week. Everyday, it was like we were all addicted to it. I finally felt good being able to play it and not be embarrassed about that fact I know so much about it.
We always got demonic spirits, you could tell. They would spell out curse words, and try to make us do "things" with each other. I knew not to continue talking to demons, but continued. We were having fun, I didn't want to spoil that.
Me and my friend, the one with the mother that was haunted, played again at her house. We contacted a spirit named Sara. I don't really remember much about Sara though. I do, however, remember her being very angry, and seeming very violent. In fact, she was. The planchette would move so fast through the board I didn't even realize it spelled out "f**k you", I thought it was spelling random letters. Then it just started move insanely around the board very fast, and I mean very. We almost couldn't keep up with it and sometimes it would move by itself when our hands couldn't keep up.
There was, and still is scratches in my board from Sara. Being able to remember exactly where they are and from what she was spelling out.
After this experience, me and a bunch of my friends got together again and played in my house. We contacted the spirit named Paul. This is a very important spirit because I believe he plays a very big role in these experiences. Paul was hilarious, he knew all our inside jokes, and things like that, and it was like another teenager was in the room. I couldn't see or feel any bad in him. Then he claimed that he's inside of my friend Becca. He also said he was in love with her. He lives with her, followers her, watches her sleep etc. He also claimed that he was inside of her, and she was born with him inside of her. He would get very jealous if her boyfriend would touch her in any way.
Kind of wierded out we closed the session and left to hang out somewhere.
The following days things started happening. Tension grew between Becca and another friend of mine. The other friend of mine, Maddie, who was also present during most of these sessions. She claimed she felt evil surrounding her at all times, and if it wouldn't go away it would kill her. She was told by some boy (who we still don't know, but her) said that the evil is coming from a spirit inside Becca. Strange, Paul said he was inside Becca.
This mysterious boy gave Maddie 3 choices. Get rid of the board, stop talking to Becca, or die.
With my permission I allowed to go with them both to burry the board. I didn't really want to, but I knew this was important to my friend.
When we went out to finish these problems, we decided not too. (Even if we would've buried it, me and Becca were going to dig it up without Maddie knowing.)
Me and Becca went over to Maddie's house to play again and see if we could contact this spirit that was plaguing Maddie so much. Maddie refused to play, and left. Allowing us to use the board. We asked the board who was tormenting Maddie, it distinctively spelled out P-A-U-L. Me and Becca looked at each other in disbelief.
We asked if Maddie was telling us the truth, yes it replied. It then spelled out danger, or something else to that nature. We asked "what about danger?". Then it quickly spelled out Maddie. We then asked if Maddie was in danger and it moved to Yes. Then little after spelled out "fall".
We didn't know where Maddie had gone, and we were scared for her. Becca then looked up and saw a white outline of a person. We asked the board "did you just walk into the room?" it replied Yes. Even though, I hadn't seen it. Then we heard the front door slam open. We both screamed at the top of our lungs.
Luckily, it was just her boyfriend and our friend Corry. We were happy to see them, we had been so scared.
We decided to look for Maddie, because of what the board had told us only minutes earlier. We got outside and decided "Let's ask the board where she is!". Not even thinking it would possibility lie to us. It spelled out "gone". (Wow, big help.)
We did find out where she was though, safe and sound. We were filled with relief.
We all stopped using the Ouija board for a while. Only playing sparingly. We never got Paul again, unless Becca was with.
Me and Becca sometimes experience the same/similar things. She felt something touch her leg in the shower, I felt something touch my leg while I was in bed. I was also in the shower once and the shower rod completely fell out of no where. A basket in the bathroom also fell and broke a cup to pieces. The basket falling happened twice.
I now always feel like I'm being watched. I constantly am being touched while I'm in bed. My hair also gets tugged at my house and even at school when no one is behind me! Could this thing be following me?
The scariest experience for me however, was when I was physically attacked while trying to go to sleep. My first thought was that it was a dream. I quickly realized I was very much a wake. I couldn't move, like I was paralyzed. My first though was an incubus. I didn't feel like it was trying to have sex with me though. I tried to yell for my mother but I couldn't speak. What's really strange to me though is that I clearly heard specifically 3 buzzer noises going off out of my right ear. As if someone was pushing a game show button 3 times on the right side of me.
I told Becca this, she said the same thing happened to her. Buzzer and everything, but hers only went off twice. I have no proof if she was telling the truth or not, but I do believe her.
Just a few days ago, my mother said she woke up in the middle of the night because she heard someone walking in the room. She looked and said she saw a black outline of a person, not sure of male or female. She said in fear she yelled out "Jesus Christ" and then blinked and it was gone.
I'm kind of of worried. I don't particularly want to have encounters with entities, but I know how to handle them. My family doesn't. I also have a younger brother who is 3 and he doesn't seem to notice anything. Except for the "vampire" or "monster" in the closet, but what kid doesn't go through that? Aren't younger kids suppose to be sensitive to these things?
I haven't been hurt by what's in my house, except for the one attack. (Which hasn't happened again since saying a prayer and burning lavender or jasmine incense before go to bed).
I'm not sure who or what is in my home, but so far nothing to major has been happening. No one is getting hurt, and as long as it stays that way and only bothers me, I think I can get through it. If anything else happens I'll try to write another story (hopefully a much shorter one- sorry).
NOTE: The claims made by Becca, Maddie, and my mother can not be proven as true. I have also tried dowsing with a pendulum a few times, with no noticeable negative side affects.
Thank you for reading my long story:
