Since I haven't been on this site for quite a while, I decided to share my most recent little ghost story. A few months ago, me and my best friend decided to be curious, and a bit stupid, and create a Ouija board of our own since there would be no way we could go off and buy one without getting caught by our angered parents. Down in my basement, which was just recently finished about a year ago, there have been instances where people feel cold on the backs of their necks, random chills, etc., so we decided to set up our little "investigation" of stupidity down there in the guest bedroom. We were very skeptical because of my past research on Ouija boards showing that the "trick" to the board is all in your "mind," so to speak. But let me tell you all, it did work, and none of you should EVER try playing with one.
Our first "session" began with us asking the normal questions you would ask in an EVP session. At first, nothing happened. Suddenly, we felt some sort of "force" pulling the indicator towards "YES" and spelling out a name: "ZAK." According to our "interview," Zak was born in 1919, and he had no idea he was dead. We immediately stopped using the board, and took a little break. During our break, I stopped by the bathroom. When I got out of the bathroom, my best friend reported lights flickering on and off in the media room of the basement. Then, we both saw with our own eyes the TV turn on, then off, then back on again, and after that, you could say all hell broke loose. Stuff started to slowly fall off the shelves, we heard scratches and taps, and even thought we heard whispers saying "help" and "I need you." We decided to bag the Ouija board all together, and since I've read that destroying the board only makes things worse, I hid it under the night stand in the guest bedroom.
That night I decided to sleep on the couch in the media room to see if anything happened. I kept my bible close to me while I slept, and said a little prayer before going off to sleep. I also made it clear that no spirits were allowed in my household whatsoever. The following morning, I was attacked by a single entity a few minutes after I woke up. I felt pressure around my neck, and could barely breathe, almost like something was choking me. I felt a very heavy weight on my chest, and I couldn't move a muscle. I was cold, and I could see my breath, or the ones I managed to forcefully take, in front of me. I fought with the entity for about five minutes until finally, I managed to reach out and grab my bible next to me. I heard what I thought to be a faint whisper, and the entity left, leaving a very negative feeling behind.
Since then, I have heard reports from my friends who attend movie nights in the basement of things falling off shelves, scratches, whispers, voices, strange sounds, etc. I have since destroyed the Ouija board, but there is still a cold, odd feeling whenever you step down into the basement. At night while sleeping in the guest bedroom, I hear scratches, and tapping, and sometimes I feel cold breath on my neck. If any of my friends sleep over, they feel things that are similar. So what is the moral of this story, you ask? NEVER EVER under ANY circumstances hold a séance, or play with a Ouija board, even a homemade one. You WILL suffer the consequences.
