Let me know your thoughts and experiences with ouija boards.
I had a very intense and harrowing experience with a ouija board when I was 15. (I'm now 45) I was at a sleepover party with a bunch of other
girls, and one of the girls brought her ouija board, which she claimed to use regularly and successfully with her brother. A group of girls tried it
and the planchette moved, but didn't spell out anything in particular - just random movement. I was *highly* skeptical; I thought the owner was
moving it herself. I said that if it really worked, it should work for me alone, and I tried it by myself. I didn't even have to get my fingers on
the planchette before it began moving, lightning-fast, across the board. I felt like my arms were being jerked out of the socket. It made large,
jagged movements and drew big, loopy circles between words. It gave me very specific information about future events, all of which came to pass -
some personal and some big things, both immediate and up to 20-odd years later. It "spoke" in German for awhile (which I don't speak), including
the word "JUDEN" spelled out violently and repeatedly. I asked its name, and it replied with an archaic-sounding name. I repeated the name out
loud, and it immediately began to spell out really vile obscenities. I have not spoken or written that name since that night. My friends thought it
was cool and fascinating at first, but eventually took it away from me when it grew foul. Once it was taken away, I began retching and vomited for
hours. I ended up having to be taken home in the middle of the night.
Since then I have handled a ouija board a couple of times, but without intent, and nothing happened. The things that it spelled out were vile enough
that I believe it can't be anything good. I would absolutely not open that door of communication again. I strongly advise against it. I don't
have a good answer for what was driving that thing, but it was very, very dark, and I choose to live in the light. Definitely would not do it again.
