My Gran's Ouija Board Experience


This is my Grans story, sadly she passed away about 3 months ago and she told me this about a month before she died.

When she was working in the courts with her 5 friends she was working a night shift. One woman suggested playing with a Ouija Board. My Gran at this time was not quite sure about this and hesitated about it because she knew the dangers of the Ouija Board. Her friends persuaded her to play and in the end she agreed.

They looked for a dark room and began to set up the Ouija Board. They used a one with a glass and everyone put their fingers on it. They started by asking simple questions like "Is there a spirit here?", or "Is it a man or a woman". Sometime later, things began to get a bit strange, like the glass would move half way to one letter then quickly move to another opposite it.

That's when it happened... About 5 minutes after playing the glass began to spin uncontrollably and 3 of the women (Including my Gran) took their fingers off the glass in shock. It was definitely not the other 2 women with their fingers on the glass because

1.) Their faces were totally shocked and scared

2.) The glass was spinning too fast for them to do on their own.

Once the 2 other women took their fingers off the glass, it flew off the table and smashed against the wall. Immediately they stopped playing and left the board. Luckily nothing happened afterward.

Please help me with this situation because I would like to know more about Ouija Boards, since my Gran never told me much about them since she didn't want to remember that experience.

This is 100% true not one bit was made up.

all I can say for sure is ouji boards are very dangerouse... I my self will not touch one or be around one in use or not in use... No matter what people say just stay away. A ouji board invites all elements good or bad to be around you or attached to you. I "played" with one just once when I was a teenager... It was such a badd experiance that I went to 3 local churches until I could get my house blessed by a pastor...

Ok. So you want to know the HISTORY of Ouija boards? The "guidelines" of safe use? Proper procedures?
The reason I ask is that it would be rather difficult for us to be able to guess WHY things happened the way they did for your Grandmother all these ago. Numerous things could have contributed to the outcome.

I am still trying to figure out what you need help with here. You are retelling the story of your Grandmothers Ouija experience, and asking for help.
With WHAT, specifically, please?

When a Ouija board planchette or watever you call them circles on its own the spirit is trying to get out. Sadly, that wasn't a good idea, letting go. That released the spirit. I know because I've done online stuff like precautions for the ouija board. When I tried it, sadly and I prayed for forgiveness afterwards for attempting witchcraft and I'm not a bigwig on religion I've just been doing it since of the nervewrecking things happening in my house, thankfully nothing happened since me and my understanding friend had a bible and were inches from a cross hanging on the wall. I am sorry for your loss and don't touch ouija boards I happened to be lucky but still not lucky since of my experiences.~Katherine~ ❤ ❤

Hey 23_Chantelle_23 I agree I would also like to know what the spinning means does it represent something maybe? Someone would have definitely witnessed this before. 😕

Never ever play with a Ouija board a girl that I went to high school with made the mistake of asking the board when her mother would die as a joke and unfortunately the board gave her a date and unluckily her mother was killed just as she was told. Ouija boards are extremely dangerous and are not to be messed with, take it from the daughter of an ex satanist. The girl ended up in a mental institute she claimed to be followed by demons.

Ouija boards are tools for the mediums of this world. Under no circumstance would I sanction the use of a board. It is Danger to allow a entity from another realm into your house is just crazy. Even tho you ask for a spirt of a reletive or friend the spirit will take on any known guise to get you to allow entry to your house. Then it will feed on your energy until you can bear it no longer. Trust me - these boards are working commodities that need to be displaced from all house holds

Ouija boards can be very dangerous and unpredictable. You have no control over who decides to speak to you through one. The board can open a portal to another dimension, and allow access to this realm. Things come through. Those things can be incredibly difficult to send back. Read some of the stories on here about Ouija boards. You may feel much less curious after reading them.
