Red-Eyed Shadow Figure
When I was about three years old, my father was deeply into the Ouija board, to the point where every time he got home from work he would use it. You're not supposed to use it by yourself, but my father did. My mom was tired of him playing with it all the time, so she hid it in the closet. My father became so expert at it that he didn't need to use the board any longer - he could write the letters on a paper and his eyes would focus onto certain letters, spelling out words. This written Ouija board told my father where the real Ouija board was, and he found it in the closet.
Later, when I was about four years old, my father conjured an unknown spirit who said it was someone or something it really wasn't. He had opened the door or window for this thing and it haunted the house for awhile. My father finally stopped practicing the Ouija board when the spirit, or another, came to me one night when I was sleeping. I had a dream that this shadowy figure about one foot tall with bright red eyes was sitting on my lamp, staring me down. It whispered to me, but I couldn't make out the words. I awoke from my dream - and there in front of me was the same shadowy figure sitting on my lamp in my bedroom! I jumped out of bed and ran down the hall. It followed me. I jumped onto the washing machine in the kitchen... and it stopped in front of me. Then I somehow avoided it and ran into my parents' room, where my father was sleeping. It stopped at the door and wouldn't enter the room, I think because my father was in there. From that night forward to this day, I never remember any of my dreams. - Amber
When I was three years old, I had a really weird ghost encounter. I was in my living room watching cartoons and I realized I had to pee. I was headed downstairs to the basement bathroom, and halfway down the steps I saw a man walk out of the wall - literally. He stopped in the middle of the basement and turned his head and looked directly at me! I was completely immobilized. I wanted to run, scream, move, but when he was looking at me, it was like I was frozen. What felt like hours later (but was probably only a minute because when I got back upstairs the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" were still on), he just turned his head and kept walking right through a closed door into what was my grandfather's workshop area. I ran upstairs and told my father, who was sleeping at the time. He told me I must have been dreaming, but I knew I wasn't.
Years later, a few friends and I were playing with the Ouija board. We were just messing around trying to "contact" the ghosts. We were sitting in the doorway to the workshop. I was in the process of contacting when suddenly my friend screamed. I moved to look and see why she had shrieked, and a monkey wrench fell where my head had been! Apparently, it was levitating above my head. I stopped using Ouija boards.
Years after that, I told my aunt of the story and described the man I saw. She showed me a picture of the man I saw. Apparently, it had been my dad's best friend, "Babe," who had killed himself by jumping off a bridge (his body was discovered six months later). When I saw the picture, I got terrible chills up my spine. - Cierra
One day, a friend and I were "playing" with a Ouija board. We finally contacted a spirit, and talked to it for awhile. My mother called us down to go to the store, so we placed the planchette on "good-bye" and left. When we got back, it was on "no". This freaked out both of us. And I know she did not do it, because she was with me the whole time.
That night we were once again trying to contact a spirit. We did, and her name was Star. My friend and I noted how much we liked the name and that we had never met anyone named Star. The next day, my friend was talking to her mother, and her mother said, "The weirdest thing happened yesterday. I answered the door and there was a lady there with a bag of candles, and she said her name was Star." I don't know about me, but my friend's face went ghost white. We just gave each other that look. Her mother assumed the candles were for her sister, since they were living together at the time, but when she asked, her aunt did not know anyone named Star. Since then we have not been able to get the Ouija board to work. I don't know if it was just a mere coincidence, but it stays in my mind to this day. - Anonymous
That Wouldn't Go Away
I have been into ghosts and stuff since I was five. I loved it so much because it was very mysterious. So when I went to the store with some friends and found a "Glow In the Dark" Ouija board, I had to have it. We took it to my friend Lindsay's house and went to her room and set it up on a coffee table. We turned off the lights and the board began to glow (nothing strange). We began to channel a spirit named Sandy who claimed to have been murdered in the house and the killer had never been caught. She told us all she knew about the killer.
About 12:00 a.m. that night we decided to go to sleep, so we left the Ouija board on the table and covered it up with a sheet so it wouldn't keep us awake with the light. As soon as we got under the covers and got comfortable, the board began to glow red! And this is where the weird stuff starts to happen: the table fell over, the bed levitated and the board landed on the bed at our feet. We began to really get freaked out and decided to take it outside and put it in the shed until morning. About 2:00 a.m., when we finally went to sleep, we heard this weird thumping sound like someone was walking through the house. We didn't really pay attention until the door swung open to the room and in came the Ouija board! We got so scared that we ran outside, took a match and burned it. - Cutie Pie
