So Many People Have Had Similar Experiences With The Ouija

As a pre teen I often played with the Ouija at my cousin's house. We had many experiences, including supposedly talking to our deceased Grandfather, the planchette doing what we called "crazy 8" when it seemed bored with us but nothing bad or scary.

Years later at a friend's house my boyfriend and I got on the friend's board. In the weeks prior to this my boyfriend had been behaving in concerning ways; acting withdrawn, wearing a black trench coat every day, using cocaine with a former friend of his who he had reconnected with. After a few minutes of forgettable conversation with the board, I asked who we were speaking to and it spelled out Satan which surprised me as I have never been religious. Given such a "ballsy" name I thought to myself, concerning my boyfriend "You cant have him." immediately afterward it spelled out "fuck U bitch", the planchette flew off the board and the window in the room slammed shut.

We threw away the board and I did not attempt again until years later when my husband and I tried it. Nothing happened. For the first time in my life, absolutely nothing happened. We thew it away.

I just found it interesting that when googling Satan, Ouija, that so many people have had such similar experiences.

Terrifying Mama Experience

My friend and I would come together and play the Ouija Board at least once a week. Each session, we'd come in contact with Zozo or Mama. Each time, it didn't seem threatening or scary. We just would talk, and they seemed like normal spirits, despite their reputations all over the internet. They'd fight over control of the board to the point where the planchette would try to move to answer our questions, but couldn't. In one session, the planchette was so heavy; it felt like a piece of wood than a piece of plastic.

After each session, I would actually have bad dreams. In one, there was a woman in a door way, wearing a long dress in 80s fashion. She was evil, and looking at me in a dark way. In our very last session, (which is why I'm writing this right now), I had felt a little nervous prior to starting, but we proceeded anyways. Like always, we'd ask if there was anyone who'd like to communicate with us through the board. And, like always, it didn't take long before we got an answer. We asked it to spell out its name. It immediately spelled out "Mama". Normally, it'd go back and forth between 'm' and 'a'. This time it stopped.

And, we asked how old it was. "0". We asked where it was from. "HELT." My friend asked if it knew everything. "Yes". She then asked what number she was thinking of. It quickly went to 8. She freaked out and snapped her hands away from the board. It knew her number.

The air was cold. Very cold. I had a very trapped, sick, and threatening feeling wash over me. Mama was there, and she knew we understood this wasn't casual anymore. She was there with us. It felt like her presence was directly behind us, and hovering over us. Almost as if she were standing, staring down as us.

It was the most terrifying feeling we'd ever experienced. We felt that if we had asked another question, something bad would happen. I quickly told Mama goodbye, and we cleansed the board, said our prayer, and called whom ever we needed to make us feel better. I didn't think that I playing the Ouija board would be so threatening. That is why we were so comfortable with playing it. But, this last session was the one to shake us to the core. It was as if an intruder came in after unlocking all my doors, threatening to eat us alive. It was the quickest fear I'd ever became over whelmed with, and I know she felt the same.

Do NOT play with Mama, Zozo, whatever they call themselves. THEY WILL HURT YOU. Just their presence alone is just as dangerous!
