Spirits Use Computers?


This is getting worse by the day. This all started about two weeks ago when my oldest daughter and her friend decided that they wanted to use a Ouija Board at my house, and my girlfriend gave them her board. They were playing with it and giggling and having some fun with it, but then I got on it. Now I have to preface this story with the fact my girlfriend said she has been messed with by something in that house before. Pictures I have turned down have somehow been moved to face up several times, but I didn't really think anything of it.

So I get on the board. My father passed when I was three and my cousin/best friend died last year so I was of course trying to talk to them. The board responded and I got a little freaked out by the whole situation and so I put the board outside. Now after this, Emily (my girlfriend) was taking a shower and heard something makes "ugh ugh" noises at her and it wasn't me.

Now on Saturday, she was at the house alone, I was at work and we were IMing each other when she said the furnace started banging and the door downstairs started trying to open. So she left and we ignored it. On Sunday, her and my oldest daughter burned the Ouija board. So this past Tuesday, her daughter's dad comes to pick her up and we were IMing each other and as soon as she leaves, noises start coming through my speakers at work, so I told her to get out of the house but leave your computer open. I asked if anyone was there, then my sister came to her house so they all went back in, nothing happened. Now comes yesterday, we are IMing each other and she leaves the house around 6:00 after her daughter leaves and logs out of her AIM. Take a look at this:

ehjerp (6:12:46 PM): got some people here

ehjerp (6:12:51 PM): bye

EmlyBrianna signed off at 6:12:55 PM.

EmlyBrianna is offline and will receive your IMs when signing back in.

emlybrianna signed off at 6:13:06 PM.

EmlyBrianna is offline and will receive your IMs when signing back in.

EmlyBrianna (6:35:12 PM): I am

ehjerp (6:36:54 PM): I am what?

ehjerp (6:39:26 PM): who is this?

Mind you, there is no one at the house at 6:35 and she was logged off her AIM. So I called her and was like what the hell is going on. She was tanning. So I keep my AIM on and this is what was next

ehjerp (6:36:54 PM): I am what?

ehjerp (6:39:26 PM): who is this?

ehjerp (6:45:35 PM): why did you type I am?

ehjerp (6:45:38 PM): I am what?

EmlyBrianna (6:49:47 PM): hoos there

ehjerp (6:50:23 PM): who is this?

Now once again, she is not there. I leave my AIM open at work to see if there is any communication between the time I left and get home. So she waits until I get off of work and then, we both go to the house. Both freaked out like you could not believe. So we sit around watching American Idol and at 7:45 pm, she gets an IM on her phone from me from my work saying I am. So we left and come to my work to see if anything had been sent to me from there. I can't find the AIM file but I can tell you exactly what it said

you donet know me at 7:12

U THINk U DO BUT U DONET+++++++++++++++++++ AT 7:14

you donet know me AT 7:40

Now mind you at 7:40, we were there and the computer was closed. While we were sitting here at my office, the phone rings at 9:37, now no one is ever calling my office at 9:37, so I answer it and it was a dial tone.

So we have been IMing most of the day and as soon as she gets ready to leave for work at 2:35, she gets an IM from herself saying "donet" and I get one from her AIM login saying the same thing. So we are really freaked out and I logged into my AIM at 3:35 to try and find the one from last night and I got another from her computer saying:

u there?

I don't know what to do, I was never really one to believe in this stuff but something is trying to communicate with me and I am a little freaked out, not a little, a lot.

Can someone help me?

I say chat with the entity. Maybe it wants you to know something. I believe that dead or alive we all have the same need for companionship.

Hi guys. Another suggestion is maybe Ghost Hunters TAPS can help with this one. Just a suggestion. 😉

Hi Eric. Wow. I have one old experience with a friend when we were kids (12) with a Ouija board. We weren't on it long because it scared us and I will never touch one again. What I hear is that you should never burn a Ouija Board because it will make matters worse. To get rid of it, you are supposed to cut into 6 or 7 sections and bury it. This will get rid of whatever came out of the Ouija. Never burn it is what they say because you will experience hard times. They say that when you want to talk to family/friends from this Board, they aren't real. You are opening doors to other demons and they fool you. This was the creepiest story I have read on this site. Take care of yourself and your girlfriend. 😊

Shestoscary-I'm not trying to change your opinion 1st of all, and you can't judge something unless you experience it for yourself. The Ouija Board wasn't invented by the Parker Brothers... IF you read farther back, the history of the Ouija is way before Parker Brothers was ever thought of. There was another name for it. Not "Ouija" that was named by E.C. Reiche... 😉...Smiliar tools were used by Pythagoras in 540 B.C. Even... Just a little food for thought

And, (sorry for flooding) I have not done it on RANDOM. I read the stories carefully, and responded my opinion.

I believe in Ouija's sometimes, not often, Mr.Brunz. It is a game, a board game, read the Parker Brothers comment about the ouija board. "it's only game, isn't it?"

Shestoscary- this comment is a response to the last three that you have left on random Ouija Board storys. I would have to disaggree with you. 😉

1st of all, I've seen the planchette move BY ITSELF before! And if you read my storys involving the Ouija, then you would know how some people (just as me) don't put their hands on the board and tell the person/people whos hand IS on the board to ask a question that only I would know that answer to, and the correct one comes out... How would you explain that? And last but definately not the least... Its NOT A GAME... And you don't "play" it. Just as NUMEROUS people have said on this site... It can be very harmful and cause intense hauntings, or (if used properly) can be used a a tool to contact the dead. Take care and God Bless!

the magical board is fake, whatever your mind wants it to say, it will move your hand to the answer. Unless you have no hands on it

I don't know if I'll ever be able to get on AIM anymore... What a powerful story. Wow! And you have proof which is a good thing. But one more thing. DON'T EVER screw around with ouija boards! I'm just saying this for your safety! They open up portals, and can invite inhuman spirits in. I'm sorry if that came as me getting angry, but it wasn't supposed to. I've just heard too many stories to mess with that kind of stuff 😁

Might be a virus? Or annother person logging in with her account? ...

My Advice: Use MSN Messenger instead of AIM and use the Webcam feature, that way you can know for sure its no one joking around. ;)

Ive heard if you burn the board it makes things much much worse. Maybe you should have your house blessed since this is where it all started.

HI Eric, It looks like you and your girlfriend might have lucked up on a new concept of spirit communnication. For one don't be scared are freaked out. It seems that between the two of you you share enough energy that they are able to use the computer to commune with you. Let me tell you first why this is of enterest to me. Ghost and lower level life forms are not spirits. Spirits are spirits because they have crossed over reviewed the past life, And in some cases have had healing done to the souls that are in need. You might think of it as haveing been judged, But by themselves ,understanding what they have learned are where they might have messed up when reviewing the life lead. Because of these and some other factors, They are able to use Gods odic energy. They do not have to steal energy as do Ghost. When you have a spirit visit you the whole experince is much more in depth then a haunting experince. For one it last longer you are able to see them as clearly as you see yourself. You are able to hear them ,as well as feel them. Talk about orbs, They are huge bright lights so much more in depth to them then in a orb from a earth bound soul. Earth bounds/ Ghost are really sad stories when you think about it. They can never get enough energy to do a whole lot with, And in the mean time it is us who have to keep replaceing batterys are lightbulbs ect, If these souls are still wanting to talk to you via computer you can ask God to send down his Angels that are good at being escorts, So these souls can go home and get on with the rest of their lives and their learning experinces. Alot of time has past and has been wasted. Time goes by much faster over there and they as well as all of us have so much to learn and experince.

This is creepy. It may be that a spirit is trying to communicate. Try to find out what it wants and help it move on.

There are a lot of these kind of occurrences. It's best to find out who lived in this apartment, building surrounding and foundation. These are entities. They are just reaching out. But you have to make the right choice if you want to communicate with them. You want them out. Don’t bother with them . Make them know you are a believer of God , you know who they are and God’s purpose with them. Remember, they exist to make us strong believers of God.

Dear EmlyBrianna, I do not think the Ouija board caused this, but it did provide an open communication line to the other side. As you say there were other paranormal type of experiences before the use of the board. It is possible that the entity is already residing at your home. Not to add fuel to your fire of fear. The main thing is to stay calm, as negative people, spirits and entities draw power from fear, as well as electrical appliances/technology. That is why I warn against being around both board and electricals when summoning the unknown and not being protected or experienced. Use your belief system and great intention to surround yourself and family in protective white/violet light like a cocoon. Call upon your angels, guides, creator or anyone or anything you strongly believe will protect and shield you. Until the ghost buster arrives this evening, I feel you and yours are safe. This entity just wants to communicate. Many lower leveled entities like to mess with people's fears and minds. Do not allow this and you will be fine.

Blessings, Athena

That is really creapy. Something similar to that happened to me, too. It's not about using a computer, but it is still technilogical.

I was watching TV right? Well the remote was on the table, and suddenly the tv started changing channels at like light-speed, and same with the volume. The remote was not faulty, for after that we were really shocked so we took out the batteries but it still did it.

But that is creepy and I believe you 100%.
