Many speculate as to what the whole ouija board experience " is " .
I can only speak for my own personal experience ....
I have used many different types of boards , from homemade to store bought . I have had " success " every time that I have used it (never used it
alone ) .
My experience with the board on more then one occasion had direct in world happenings that were directly related to the use of the board . These in
world events consisted of clocks moving ahead , phone ringing and one one on the other line , blinds falling and on one occasion " we " put the
board to a challenge ... We tried to think of the most unlikely thing to occur . We were outside and it was late . We looked up and down the darkened
street and saw nothing that late hour . Wanting to put the board to the test we decided to ask , " if you are hear , make a dog bark buy the count of
Strangely enough the board agreed . We sat there , planchette in hand and started our count to ten . As we progressed in our count nothing seemed to
be happening . We all looked around our little circle , giggling at one another as teenagers do , ( was a young teen at the time ) thinking and
wondering if anything was going to happen ? When we progressed higher in our count , we seemed to think it not likely anything was going to happen .
Our playful giggles from only seconds prior turned to disappointment . The feelings of disappointment were coming from a sense that someone in our
little group was trying to have some fun at the rest of our expense buy moving the planchette .
When our count reached 9 we all but gave up any hopes that anything would happen and I started looking around the group wondering just who was the one
playing with us . But , when we counted 10 , on that very instant , A dog barked ! We were stunned , looking around at one another we didn't know
what to say ? The bark was not close , or scary , but it was loud and repetitive . It was enough to convince us that this was more then just
That was not the last time I used a ouija board , nor was it the last of strange happenings that seemed to take place while using the board .
I have since stopped using the ouija board , haven't used it in over 18 or 19 years now
I still find the ouija board to be a very interesting topic and to be honest , there is still a part of me that would like to try it again . Having
said that , I decided long ago to leave it alone .
