DISCLAIMER: I do not recommend that anyone attempt to recreate, copy or otherwise use the following, in any way, shape or form. In hindsight, it was
foolish and was never attempted, again.
I guess it's been about 8 years ago, now. There were a series of bad storms that came through our area, that year, and on this particular night, the
power had been out for several hours. Myself, my wife and two other couples, were having a gathering of like minds, to discuss some of our favorite
topics, and to generally just hang out. It was a regular thing for us to do, and the evenings usually became pretty lively, as we would progress with
our conversations to sometimes, outright debates. On regular occasion, the women would decide to play with our Ouija. The men would supervise and make
sure things didn't get out of hand. Tonight was no exception.
We had recently, a few months before, undertook an "experiment" in which we collaborated on the procedure, peripherals and materials used, to
construct a homemade Ouija board. Our attempt was highly successful due to the extreme nature of our "contacts" through this medium, versus ones we
typically encountered, on commercial boards.
Without divulging too many specifics, our attempt from the start, was to enhance our experiences with the phenomenon, and enter into it in the most
clinical way, conceivable. We were meticulous in the materials used, the construction parameters and the way we intended to garner information through
the use of this board.
Each participant's job was deliberated on, decided through consensus, and enacted per each session. The format was simple. Always the same. The same
list of questions were asked. The same person taking notes. The same two individuals handling the seer, etc...Times, weather conditions, even world
events occuring during the sessions were noted in the documentation we amassed. Many of the sessions revealed several mentionables and this went on
for about a month.
After awhile, we decided to shake things up a bit. It became apparent, that one of the individuals participating in our project, was not as "in to
it" as the rest of us were. A decision was made to replace her, but with whom? It was debated and voted on, that we would elicit a more dark
individual to our group. Not by skin color, but someone who seemed to have a penchant for what we were dabbling with. Someone with perhaps some
insight beyond what we were bringing to the table. I knew just the person.
"Daniel" was a highly-intelligent, yet very introverted and mysterious young man. We developed a friendship through our jobs, and began to socialize
outside of work, and continued to do so, for a few years. He was in his late 20's but had the knowledge and presence of a much older individual. And,
he was aware, to some extent, of our little experiment. Upon presenting him the opportunity to join our group, he seemed both interested and reserved.
I couldn't yet, determine the cause of the latter.
The first night that Daniel came into the group, everyone noticed a significant difference in everything, that transpired. Later that week, we all met
to discuss what we perceived and to attempt to determine the cause. Obviously, Daniel, played a large part, but the why, was the biggest question that
was debated. We had trouble agreeing on specifics, so we decided to test all theories during our next few sessions, to see if we could add evidence to
any of them. It would only take one, to make a determination...
On the aformentioned evening, a severe thunderstorm had passed through about an hour before our gathering, which caused a power interruption to our
It was decided that it was too late to cancel, as many were already on their way, and the thought of performing the experiment in a powerless
environment, had a certain appeal to it, anyway. We lit every candle that we could find. Set up our board, per the normal routine, and began our
On this particular night, we were going to use provocation, to see if we could affect the responses of the board.
It was a theory that Daniel, had a way of creating animosity and even disgust, from a few of the entities that we were communicating with, regularly.
Why? We were not sure? But it was what we intended to find out.
We began by calling out the entities! Questioning their very existence! And daring them to prove to us that they were infact, responsible for the
answers that we received from the board. We told them that this was our last night, and that we didn't believe in them, and were going to destroy the
board and carry on with our lives!
Normally, we would begin to see responses within the first minute or two. But on this night, 30 minutes passed, and still no action from the seer. We
took a short break, and upon returning, we took it up a few notches. We always had just one person, who was not contacting the board, ask the
questions. And the ones in contact, were not allowed to see the questions, beforehand. To this point, our approach had always been clinical. But now,
we were determined to throw caution to the wind. Whether it was frustration, or simply vindictiveness, we escalated beyond our measures of control.
Several observers began taunting! Some were calling names! Some were cursing and accusing the spirits of having no power!...Then...Suddenly!
...the lights came back on....
Interrupted by reality, and being quite sure it was the power company and not anything supernatural, that caused the return of lights to our home, the
spiritual bombardment of the other side, ceased. But, they were just getting started...
