Couple questions (rambling here, dang I feel vulnerable),
When I was very young say 4 or 5 years old (I know it was very close to 4 years old because of an eye surgery (lazy eye), I would have terrifying visions, of Cowboys and Indians hovering on the roof of my ceiling, not fighting to my knowledge, just sorta ‘hanging out’, but very active. I also had very vivid images of tigers jumping through my glass window (glass would not break). I can even recall screaming and crying for my parents to come in, they would and everything would be perfect. When they left all heck would break loose. I was never on any real drugs after the surgery, so I rule that out. These ‘halucinations’ would continue for months after the initial one (it was clearly months and months after the initial visions [my parents remember this as well]).
After writing the above, I also remember being so afraid in my bed with these visions, I would get up from bed, and run to my parents bedroom. I can recall looking at my mother lying in bed, and her face would change to something that would resemble an ape or gorilla. It would scare me speechless, but my mom would somehow sense I was there looking and would open the covers and I would slip into bed, but I would never look back to see if the ape/gorilla shape would return.
With that said, I was looking into perhaps building an Ouija board. I have never used one even the cardboard one you can buy at your local Toys ‘r Us. Any help would be great.
I was hoping someone could elaborate on materials, i.e. wood type or stencil material or maybe a cheap wood burning tool? What do I seal the wood with? Epoxy laminate?
I was also looking for a partner or group to try the board out with, maybe even before building one myself trying a group that already has a board. My friends and family, minus my father (skeptic, me too I guess?) want nothing to do with building or using one. In fact, my wife will not even let me build one in or near the house, she is that freaked out (she says her aunt had bad experiences but will not go further). Is there a group one can join to experience this kind of stuff?
If anyone cares to throw out their experience in building or using the Ouija board that would be awesome.
BTW, I have no idea what I am looking for except just exploring.
Thanks for any responses, and take care,
