This happened maybe about six months ago, when my 13 (now 14) year old sister and 3 of her friends stayed at our house for the night. My sister, Heather and her friends Jana, Chloe and Shannon all thought it would be fun to do a Ouija board. I've always been interested in the paranormal, though it does scare me quite a bit. I had always stayed strong to my "don't ever touch a Ouija board, they're nothing but trouble" theory. But my sister begged me, saying 4 of them were not generating enough energy. I reluctantly agreed, but first spent about an hour, researching how to protect yourself from bad spirits. We then lit several white tea lights around the bedroom, chose a glass and sat around the board. My sister and I are both Catholic, but have never been to church outside of school masses.
There were 5 of us touching the glass the entire time, and it only just occurred to me when writing this, that when seated around the board, we looked like an out of shape pentagram. Should that make any difference? After a few contacts, we had one that started to play up. The glass stopped moving for a while, despite us asking questions, so we decided to say 'goodbye'. Then out of nowhere, the glass moved toward the edge of the board. -For those who know about Ouija boards, must know about the various ways that entities can escape. After the movement, my sister's friend Chloe freaked out and tore her hand off the glass. I was about to take my hand off it too, when out of nowhere the glass tipped up and nearly fell over. Quickly I put my fingers on the glass, moved it to 'goodbye' and flipped the board over.
I looked up at Heather, who seemed to be in shock. She was staring straight into my eyes, not moving or blinking. Chloe, who was sitting next to her, nudged Heather and she still didn't move. I asked "are you okay?" Told her to "stop it now, this isn't funny." Still no response. After about 20-30 seconds, Heather took in a deep gasp and her hands flew up to her throat in what looked like an attempt to strangle herself. 5 seconds passed with her gasping for breath, when she finally calmed down and asked what had happened. I still thought she was mucking around and I replied "oh as if you don't know." To which she said "no, I seriously have no idea. What the hell happened? All I saw was black."
By now I was really scared, so we all went outside and ripped the board up (it was only badly drawn on paper) and burned the pieces. After that, Heather said she felt relieved. Like a weight had been lifted off her shoulders. We went back inside, sat in the kitchen and talked about it. Heather had told me the last time Jana stayed over, that she and her mother could both see ghosts. Out of nowhere, Jana looked up towards Heather's bedroom and said "a man with no shirt on and brown hair just walked into your bedroom."
Needless to say, I won't touch a Ouija board again. Does anyone have any insight to what it might have been?
