Skeptical About Consequences Of Ouija Boards But The Temptation Is Always There
Hey, so my name's Amy and I'm 16. This year I've been increasing my interest into the paranormal and thus thought about using a Ouija board to contact my Step-Father's spirit that now stalks my hallway (I know something's there, he walks down the hall toward the kitchen and quickly into the dining room...we think it's because we have a house plant in there in one of his old plant pots, and that's the only thing of his we have) his shadows and figure has been seen by everyone living in the house, (me, my mother, my step-father and his son, his son  has had a conversation with the spirit when he was about 8, before he abruptly left, leaving him confused) ANYWAY..
I wanted to see if I could talk to him, apparently he was a very nice guy and had really funny jokes, and seeing as I've heard everything about him when he was alive, I just wanted to know his side of the story; so I started to make a Ouija board.
Once I was done, I went to my mother and step-father to see if they would help me out.. my step-father went pale and then went ahead to take the handmade Ouija board out of my hand and scare me with his story...
When he was younger, (he didn't specify what age) he was with a few members of his friendship group and his sister, they decided to use the Ouija board because they thought it would be just a 'game'... the first spirit they encountered did not answer any of their questions, instead proceeded to spell out the words: 'B-O-I-L W-A-T-E-R' repeatedly until they warmed up a saucepan of water on the hob, they then went back to the board and it said 'P-O-U-R O-N Y-O-U-N-G-E-S-T-S H-E-A-D' repeatedly, even when it was asked questions... obviously they stopped boiling the water, put the board away and then just decided to watch television.
My step-father then said that they heard the tap running in the kitchen at full blast, then the one in each of the bathroom sinks, the bath, the shower, water was everywhere. In the rush to turn everything all off they all left the living room, and when they all returned the curtains and rug had seemed to spontaneously catch fire and proceed to spread around the house.
No one was hurt, everyone got out and despite that happening, his friends didn't move out of the house until last year.
Since I heard this, I've been really skeptical about the consequences of using ouija boards, but the temptation to use one is always there. I know, I know they're not games and I know you can't mess around just in case you disrupt the demons or bad spirits and such...but I'd love to talk to spirits one day.
