As a child my fascinations were not Barbie Dolls, they were spirits. When I was 4 years old I had my first paranormal experience.
I came home one afternoon from a day out with my family, I was on my way to the restroom and upon the staircase sat a little boy. Understandably, I was scared. I ran to get my father and when we came back it was gone.
So, last Christmas I received a Ouija Board as a gift. I was super excited to play to see if it actually worked. Later that month, I invited my best friend over to spend the night. My friend's father past away when she was very young due to a heart attack. Her mother lived to be in her late 40's but, in January of 2013 she committed suicide by hanging herself. *Her daughters were the ones that found her.* So, when she came over we decided we were going to play.
We lit candles all around the board and begun. At first, nothing came through. Minutes later the planchete started moving. We asked basic questions like "What's your name?" and "How old are you?". We ended up speaking to a young woman named Gracie. She told us she was killed by a girl she used to harass. After the girl killed Gracie, the girl's mother killed her and then herself. She said that they were now tormenting her. We tried to help but, there was no way.
My friend later asked if she knew her mother or father. Believe it or not she actually did. My friend spent hours talking to her parents. She asked questions that I would never know the answer too. For example, she asked "If you are my father name my half brothers." I had not a single clue she even had half brothers. But, he answered every question she had for him correctly.
This was a life-changing experience for me, and till this day I continue to communicate with spirits who are lost in the afterlife.
