My name is Lucy, I am 16 years old, I am very curious and intrigued by the concept of communicating with spirits. After a lot of reading stories of Ouija boards me, my boyfriend, and my two friends, who are also together decided to make a homemade board and see what or who we could communicate with. I know this isn't a game or something so I made sure I was polite and channeled somewhat positive energy so as to not anger spirits.
At first we played with a coin on a piece of paper with all the letters, numbers and symbols on it. We spun the coin in three circles and asked if anyone was there and willing to communicate with us. When the coin started moving of it's own accord my friend Georgia panicked and lifted her finger off the coin. Hoping this wasn't dangerous we carried on, and started talking to a spirit called 'Dzeeko'? She said she was a girl, and was 5, and she was born in 1826. We asked where she was from and she gave a load of jumbled letters. By now I was hooked. We decided to leave it after being told by a rather grumpy spirit that they didn't want to talk and promptly 'goodbye'. Thug lyfed by a ghost.
A few hours later we came back to it, and this time lit 4 candles around the makeshift board. I was doing the talking and this time the conversation went something like:
Me: are there any spirits willing to communicate with us?
Are you from the sun or the moon?
Me: do you know any of us?
Me: who is it?
Coin slides to Ben's side of the board
Me: Ben did you know anyone who died recently?
Ben: my great grandad
Me: Can you tell us your name?
Me: what is your name?
Ben: his name was Arthur
Me: is this Arthur?
We all get excited because it seemed so far fetched but it was happening and it was so real.
Me: how old are you?
Me: how did you die?
Me: is it old age?
Me: were you happy?
This still seemed a little too far fetched, so Ben said we should ask who his daughter was, to try and prove it was him.
Me: what is the name of your daughter?
Ben: her name was Sandra
Me: did you have a wife?
What was her name?
Arthur: N D
Ben: did she pass away before you did?
By now we were running out of questions but we were so interested we couldn't let it go. Ben decided to stick fingers up behind his back so the rest of us couldn't see
Me: how many fingers has Ben got behind his back?
Ben: *takes hand from behind his back with 2 fingers held up*
Me: are you in the room with us?
Me: are you behind Ben?
We had run out of questions again. Until:
Eddie(boyfriend): are you in heaven or hell?
Me: is it nice?
Me: are you with your wife?
Me: should we go now?
Ben: if we call again will you come back?
Me: okay, thank you Arthur, goodbye
Eddie, Ben, Georgia: goodbye
Sorry for it's long winded-ness but I just thought it was a really interesting first ouija session and it really proved to me that there isn't as much distance between the living and the deceased as first imagined. Literally. He was behind Ben.
