What if you have no control over it? How do you make it stop? What if its been there ever since you can remember?

It amazes me when I hear about people who want to "learn" how to "develop these skills" by attending workshops and such. When there are some people who want to learn out to not have this because they want to just fit in with regular society and raise normal kids, lol. Are these psychics not afraid of drawing attention from all the wrong groups of people? What about protecting their children who may also have those "gifts"?

Sorry, didn't mean to get too far off topic here, but it's something I often wonder.

andy1972 linked to a thread. Take a look at it. Someone posted what looks very similar to the ouija boar, broken glass and candles that he found. Username is Nventual.

Let me see if i can link to it:

I'll try not to stray to off topic, but I will try and answer as easily as possible.

Simplest way of turning of the light, "take anti-depresents"

Wow, there's a bit of smug in this thread. What humans know in comparison to what they do not know could fit inside a thimble. There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Or known about by your paltry human science, in this case.

I, like most young kids, tried it out with a group of girlfriends at a slumber party. Had a bit of a weird experience, but nothing scary. It didn't strike me as weird until later though. We were stupid little girls and asked the Ouija board who we would marry. It told me I would marry Joe. My first (and ex) husband's name is Joe.

Ouija boards I think are like Tarot cards in a way. The cards and the boards (the physical objects) don't have any power, or danger themselves. It's when they are used by a person to channel or focus their own psychic abilities. I think we all have these abilities. It's just some people are more in tune with them than others.

ETA: James Randi has a vested interest in proving that psychics do not exist. He's also smug. I don't care how much money he offered, if I was psychic I wouldn't do it either.

Truthfully, I wanted to carve the letters and numbers, but the only thing at my disposal was an array of kitchen knives. It was too tedious, so I gave up and finished it off with a sharpie marker. I was not a very patient kid


Yes, I began experiencing unusual happenings very early on in my childhood. I am not ready to discuss them yet, if ever. I do not think I am the only one in my family who did. That's a thread all in itself. Unfortunately, the only thing I have to go on is bits and pieces anyway because so much of that kind of stuff was not talked about in our family. But, as I got older and had questions... curiosity got the better of me. I just did what I saw on TV, like a stupid kid.

Now my oldest daughter is having questions, experiencing things. I'm really at a loss here. I don't know what to tell her. If I tell her it's all in her head, will she think she's a nutcase? If I try an open discussion, that will open a whole can of worms she is not capable of handling. I feel like a horrible mother because I do my best to just brush it off. That's because I can't deal with it.

I shrugged it off as a kid and didn't tell anyone either. There's something about a given age that either kick starts or amplifies these "gifts". My father is... Not so much now but a "Non believer"

Mother, 2 sisters and Me all have "The Gift" it wasn't until my mother came out and talked to us that we all came clean. My mother helped us in ways I couldn't describe in this thread. They say it's someting in our blood, dna? Sounds ridiculous but I don't think so.

Point is, you would be amazed at what children can and can't handle. It's better to know your not alone which in turn makes people feel like "Freaks" which is NOT the case. And if your child has it. She or he will most likely pass it on to there child in future generations as well.

My thought is that our ancestors might have engaged in mental practices which permanently changed their genetics, unlocking "junk dna" that resulted in a greater sensitivity to the higher electromagnetic spectrum, thus enabling them to both receive and transmit messages to any forms of awareness able to observe the communications of such channels. And we ourselves inherited this "electromagnetic sensitivity", which is the reason the more gifted people prefer to limit the amount of technology they associate with. It bothers their sensitivity.

Just a theory I've worked on in idle hours, an interesting concept which would open the doors to a wider degree of paranormal phenomena and tie in quite neatly to the overall explanation of paranormal entities.

That's the "thing" with the board. It feels like it has a life of its own.



But the second it moved to the letter H, is when that candle exploded. These candles had not been lit long enough to get hot enough to break glass.

Glass reacts that way to rather sudden changes in temperature, causing tension in the glass. It does need to "build up a temperature".
A candle is hot as fire when it is....fired up.

It is very common that glass cracks when hot water is poured on it.




To my knowledge, my mother never used them before that night. They were for decoration only.

Aha! That'd make it even more probable that it occurred there and then.
I came to remember the exact same thing happened to a round "bubbly" candle holder that my mother had, when she decided to use it, instead of having it as decoration.



The candles were not sitting directly upon the glass portion of the table. This was a Chinese import table used for tea. It was hand painted black wood with a glass inlay that showcased an ivory picturesque design. The candles were placed on the wood section of the table. The board was on the glass.

Are you sure you remember this correctly?
I would however still find it probable that either wax from the candle spilled/shot out from it on the table, or that the shattering glass "tapped" the table, not completely unlike the small tools used to break windows during emergencies (which show how easy it is to shatter glass in certain conditions).

It's never good to leave ourselves uninformed, no matter the discomfort that we may experience as a result of our education. It is far better to be equipped and afraid than to be unarmed and happy.

Thank you. You have no idea (or maybe you do, lol) how much that helps to hear. Before my girls were born I did consider going to one of those workshops to help me, like you suggest. But it just seemed so weird to me. I didn't think I would fit in. Then my girls were born and I have tried so hard to make a normal life for them.

I appreciate all your information in this thread. It's definitely made me rethink how I've neglected something that shouldn't be taken for granted.

I have never been much of a believer in the occult practices because most if not all involves trickery.

Here is Penn and Teller's take on the Ouija board for those that have time to view.

You are mistaken if you think you can walk away from that which dwells within. These things are onboard. They're with you everywhere you go.

Well yes I'm pretty darn sure I remember exactly how and where I placed the candles. Perhaps I could draw you a diagram. The candle had not been burning long enough to form a large pool of wax. This all took place in a very short matter of time. Now I can understand a votive cracking for whatever reason. I'm not an idiot, I've seen glass crack under heat. This candle exploded. As soon as it exploded, the glass inlay cracked from one end all the way to the other! I don't know how else to make this clear. It's a highly unusual circumstance to say the least. I'm sorry you are unimpressed. Would you like me to say that satan himself jumped out of the table and blew smoke out of his butt? Lol! I don't know what else to say. That's what happened, sorry.

You don't have to apologize.
I'm just saying that there is no reason to believe that what happened had to do with anything else than what can be expected from a toy, candle and glass. So you're safe.

People actually BELIEVE Penn and Teller...

Yet they DON'T believe that ouija boards are for real and "splain" it away as just trickery.

How does that WORK?!

Need a clue? > Penn and Teller BS is NWO propaganda

Ouija boards are child's play, they are 99% harmless in my opinion, the 1% makes them worth staying away from though. Art Bell claimed he used an old Ouija board once, he said the most terrifying thing happened to him, not once did he ever mention on the air what happened, only to stay away from them. If there's smoke there's bound to be an ember of fire. The exorcism movie is supposedly based on a boy who used a Ouija board to communicate to his dead grandmother. If you do a search of Ouija board on youtube you will find 99% fake videos which will cause you to believe it's all fake but I'm sure at least 1% of the experiences are real.

Quit trying to derail my thread into something about financial gain.


In fairness, I don't think that's what AmberLeaf was trying to do. They were just making the perfectly valid point that, if someone who claims to be psychic has a chance to categorically prove it to the world and end the debate, why not take it?

The sad fact is that these high profile "psychics" know that under strict experimental conditions, they will be revealed as frauds.

Don't get me wrong - I think the paranormal and the esoteric are interesting and worth exploring. But I'm not blind to the fact that there are plenty of people out there who A) want to believe that they're "special", and B) have no qualms exploiting people's grief / insecurity for their own personal gain.


People that are true psychics/synchronicity manipulatores are from my point of view normally not interested in big chunks off money because it will be counterproductive to their purpose. Everybody is special in their own way and evolving/changing/growing from one thing to another thing.

When synchronicity increases people can pull what they need in form of information and understanding with different degrees of success. Even if you are not contacting anything more than you unconcious using your third eye to get external information that might be locked in your unconcious about reality it might be usefull. But at later stages when you and you unconcious have little secrets left it seems like a slower way to get access than to directly think and observe the data that comes back.

Frankly, I don't see why any rational person (is this going to be an oxymoron?) that believes in the possibility of communicating with ....others? Spirits? The dead? would feel safe in doing so. If there are... other things out there..... and considering what we know about things on OUR side of the veil.... then the possibility of what is contacted being evil or wanting to harm someone, is high. It's that way here, and maybe that way There. A demon? Losing your soul? Being taken over? Poltergeist happenings like that described? It's Just Asking For Trouble! Open a door to another being seems a bir risky for being bored. Why not some Russian Roulette instead? Just as foolish.

For a spirit who knows itself and is aware of itself and can control itself there is nothing to fear anywhere in all that is. You might be uncomfortable for a while but then I am pretty uncomfortable sometimes surrounded by dualistic humans caught up in dogma views also. I have not met any demon on the other side of the veil yet but I have met plenty of fallen egodemonic souls in human vehicles on this plane of existance.

"I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing......Only I will remain."

You can not walk away from them. Not ever, you are right. At times, when I've moved to a new place, I've thought ha! It's gone, but it always returns. Always. But you can do your best to live with it, ignore it and don't feed it. I certainly won't be calling on to it anymore. Well not with a ouija board. Not some kind of black magic crap. I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I do believe in meditation and prayer for positive uses and I have found it helpful many times.
