Friendly Ghost In My Room


For the past few months I have been experiencing weird things. Lights flickering on and off, the feeling of being watched. But I ignored it as I thought it could be my mind playing tricks. Tonight I was sitting in my room reading a book, when out of the corner of my eye, I saw someone standing near my closet. He was smiling and wasn't doing anything wrong. So I took out my Ouiji Board (and at first I thought these things didn't work) But I know I'm going to sound crazy, but it seems I contacted him anyways. The entire conversation followed:

My Question: Who are you?

Answer: THW.

My question: Are those your initials

Answer: Yes

My question: What do you want?

Answer: Friend

My question: whose friend?

Answer: Yours

My response: I can't.

Answer: Why?

My response: I'm scared.

Answer: I won't hurt you.

My reponse this time was crying

Answer: Dont cry.

My response: please go away.

Answer: please be friend.

My response: no.

Answer: why won't be friend?

And I hung up or disconnected or whatever you want to call it. Anyways, I don't know what to do. How do you get rid of a spirit? I'm scared of him. And I'm not using that board again, but he keeps turning lights on and off, appearing and he even moved some paper. I even heard "Hello" earlier tonight. I don't know what to do. I'm scared.

It is okay for you to be afraid of things that you can't see. But "your" spirit sounds friendly enough and best of all he doesn't want to hurt you. Try communicating with him more.

Springfairy556 - ummm...okay, I've read through all the comments on your story and I could only find 1 that called you a wh*re. So, out of all of the helpful comments, you chose to lead with "all of you," which sounds as if you are including the majority of the people who commented in that category?

I completely understand being pissed off. I would be too, but consider the source and the fact that almost every other comment was geared toward offering you advice and help. At least a "thank you" to them would have been nice.

For all of you calling me a whore, get a life.

Sorry for never responding; I have moved out that house since then, though every home I live in seems to be haunted. At the time I was 16-17, he looked 19-20, He reminded me of a Civil War soldier; dressed in that time period clothing.

Chill out. It's a really nice spirit and if he just wants to be friends, then just get over it. You're not even going throught anything terrifying so calm down

Well from all the comments it seems you should go and try to talk to it (I don't know is it a female or male whatever). Normally ghost won't harm you as you have more merit than them and they won't harm you unless you had some problem with it in your past life unless this is a demon. Say sorry that you didn't make friends in the first place and help him move on to its next life. 🤔 😊 😆

It sounds like you have a really friendly spirit in your house. I think you should say your his friend and try not to be afraid. He is just standing in your house and flickering lights that spirit doesn't sound that evil. Plus you don't want to make him angery or upset with you

If the ghost is that friendly, you don't have to be afraid of it. It can be possibly your guardian angel, try conquered your friends and think of a ghost as real friend. Just its friend and it says "it won't hurt you." SO, LET IT BE!

I agree with honipop! The best thing you can do is to wait a day or two and if you are still frightened you should try to make it go away! Wear a blessed rosary with you at all times to keep you safe!

Good luck and God bless you!

Go with your gut feeling, if you feel scared, there is proabably a good reason. Ask for winning lottery numbers? Just kidding, Some times malvolent spirits pretend to be nice at first and then progressively show their true colors, which ain't pretty.

Aww he seems like a nice ghost, like Casper. Don't be mean and just be his friend. He's not harming you, and if he does just cut off the friendship. Tell him to come to my house and I'll be friends with him if you don't 😁

He sounds ok... He hasn't hurt you or done anything wrong. Maybe he really does just want to be friends. You could start as friends and after a while you should ask him if he wants to pass on, if he says yes, try to help him, if not respect his decision and try to get along with him. But I would exercise caution when using an ouji board, they're not the safest things around. But good luck and may God or what deity you believe in bless you! ❤

One can be afraid of a friendly ghost if you aren't familiar with spirits or entities in general... Maybe it was their first encounter?! I was scared when I had my first encounter and it was a friendly ghost in deed... 😐

Stupid whore. There is a meaning to the phrase "respect the dead", they are creatures without bodies. I have to confess that I think this is either fake or you are an A**hole. I don't see how you can be scared of a "friendly ghost", or is friendlyness just an emotion you don't understand?

Remember,ghosts are just people without bodies. They may be dead and you can't see them all the time, but they are just people. Turning off lights, appearing, and moving paper may be his only way of communicating with you. He must be very lonely and he only wants to have a friend. Don't be afraid.

wow! I'd be kind of scared at first if I were you, but then I'd made friends with the ghosts. Ghosts are just spirits (this will sound cheesy, but it's true.) that have unfinished business to take care of. Make friends with him, and please don't be afraid! If I were the ghost, l and you rejected me, I would feel really bad. People are just afraid of ghosts because they are different than humans are. Thanks for reading!

You shouldn't be scared of this ghost, well wouldn't you want a friend if you were trapped btween two dimensions and had no one to talk to? But it's your choice if you want to befriend this spirit, you should consider yourself lucky that this spirit doesn't seem to be of any harm.

Take care ❤

I don't think you should be scared of him. I have a couple of spirits in my house (they mihgt be shadow men I don't know) and I talked to them with an Ouija baord and we're friends. There are two or three of them, I think. At first I talked to one that told me that it liked me even though I am a terrible person, and that I don't have a guardian spirit for pretty much no reason at all. The other one that I talked to had a good laugh at my expense and explaikned how the first spirit had been joking. They haven't ever done anything mean to me and we pretty much ignore each other now.

Wow, I didn't actually know what an ouija board was, so I looked it up after I wrote my last comment. Half of me says don't use it, while the other half says why are you being ridiculous and using it, they don't actually work. The user actually answers the questions without realizing it. I read about a scientific experiment where they blind folded the board users and then turned the board without them realizing it. Then the ouija board answered everything wrong. It always answered where the correct answer was before they turned the board.

If you are afraid it is for a reason. Either you are not ready (and possibly never will be) to cooexist with the knowledge of a spirit or you are picking up on something the spirit isn't sharing with you. Either way, follow your gut.

As for getting it to leave, oddly enough, simply telling it to leave forcefully will work sometimes. It has for me on occasion. Otherwise I would tell you to seek the counsel of whitebuffalo on this site. I am not sure how often she is here, but she helped me with my situation not too long ago.

Finally, leave the OUIJA board alone. WHether it has the ability to open portals or it is the subconcious as Tonith believes, it will not help with what you are going through. If it is subconcious, then spirits seem to pick up on that energy and thought level and are attracted to you because of it. I had a nasty experience with the board that I am still dealing with almost 20 years later. Feel free to read the story if you want to know about it. Get that board out of your house...

First I would like to know how old you are. It's possible you are the catalyst for this spirit. He may be attracted to your energy. One the other hand it could be all you and not something paranormal. Teens have been known to have kinetic energy which brings about poltergeist like activity but in reality is the teen doing it unawares.
I don't know if a ouija board can open a portals but that's the theory. For myself, I believe for the most part they are nothing more than our subconscience at work. All that said, if you really feel you are sharing space with an entity and don't want it to be there simply demand that it leave. Seems like this simple method works. People have lived with spirits but established ground rules and it seems like most spirits comply. I would encourage any spirit to go to the Light but don't know if it can be forced to go. Like any human person some are more stubborn than others. Keep us posted as to how things are going.

Oh, wow, please, at least try to be friends with it 😨
I don't think it wants it for you to be scared.
Find out more about it before you get so scared.
You're being scared for no reason! It won't harm you. Go to a bright place in your house to make you feel safer, and do a little more ouija board.
I'd be really excited, wow!

Hmm he definitely seems to be friendly. You should not be afraid of him but if you still fear him you should ask him to leave. If he refuses then you should try salt or something but I am not sure because I have only dealt with one ghost before. All of the other posters are right and you should do what seems to be the best idea or try all of them!

Hope I helped!

Don't be scared of him! Ghosts are just people who died. Not all ghosts are mean. I'm sure he is telling the truth! He's probity just lonesome! So that's why he wants you as a friend! 😁

I don't want to sound like a broke record, but please, please, please leave those Ouiji boards alone. Don't play around with that kind of stuff! If something did come through, it is probably a negative spirit, one that you sure don't want to be talking and communicating with. Please do not burn or throw that board away. You've probably opened a portal now and you will need to seek someone who knows how to close it and then destroy the board the proper way. Please bless and anoint your house, pour salt around your house out side and put some salt in each corner of your rooms and stay in constant prayer. Burn some sage and you can go to the dollar store and get a squirt bottle and fill it with salt water and pray over it or ask a preacher to pray over it or give you some holy water to go in your bottle so you can walk around inside your house and pray and be forceful and tell this intity to leave in the name of the Father, Son and the Wholy Spirit and spray this salt water in the corners of each room. You must by all means be forceful and show no fear! This is your home, you pay the bills there and you are not going to run out of your house! Stand your ground.

God Bless you and please leave those boards alone.
