To be clear: there is no "proper" way to use an ouija board. The process of inviting harmful paranormal entities into your home is simply not advisable. Nothing good is going to come through use of an ouija board. By using a Ouija board you are consciously inviting spirits to communicate with you. In actuality, a user does not have any control over who responds when they evoke spirits. What you will end up getting is a demonic spirit. Once a demonic entity is allowed into your home, it is very difficult - and dangerous – to expel. Conversely, a demon spirit cannot be physically expelled, they must be exorcised. If you have a Ouija board, please throw it out. Do not donate to a charity in a box of unwanted items – just destroy it.
There is also reports of users having to be institutionalized either through information gathered from their subconscious, or through harassment from an evil entity or spirit. Some have become obsessed and let the board control their lives and their decisions, becoming insane in the process.
The occult, and the intentions that occult tools provide for are extremely dangerous. Something discernible may or may not happen in each use, but you are putting yourself at great risk each time it is used.
Below you will find a small sampling of the hundreds of thousands of ouija board stories found on the internet.
My Friend Wants me to Play the Ouija Board
My friends want me to play with the Ouija board but I don't like the idea of trying to talk to demons or a spirit.
I told my mom about what they wanted to do on Halloween and she said No, my grandma (her mom) played with it when she was little and had a bad experience. I wanted to know what happened so I called my grandma the next night and she said her grandmother had a Ouija board and her and her little brothers and sisters decided to play with it.
They contacted a spirit or demon and my grandma wanted to scare them so she said "If the Ouija board is real I want the devil to possess me." At first she was just joking and playing around to scare them. She started shaking and then she couldn't stop.
Something was making her shake and she started to cry and so did her sibling. She kept telling her self she was sorry she wanted to make it stop and she would never saying anything that stupid again and finally it stopped.
She went and talk to her grandmother about what happened and her grandmother wasn't very happy. She told her she knew something like that was going to happen so she took away and hid the Ouija board and told her to never play with one again.
My grandma says prayers every night before she goes to bed she is still mad at herself till that day she has never played with a Ouija board again.
I don't know if you found that very scary but it freaked me out never will I play with one.
Ouija G Was Actually Zozo
So my friend had been talking to someone on the board called "g". I didn't believe it was real so I tried it on a paper board and it kept spelling "rape you kill you".
We thought it was funny so we continued to do the board and once I was doing it by myself and it spelled "fire" and I went in the kitchen and a pan was on fire.
I stopped talking to it after that but my friend continued to talk to it on her board and it adventually said that "g" was fake and it was zozo.
We now both feel things touch us and the other day my chair moved across the room, and random wet spots keep appearing on both of our beds. This has been going on for about a month and I dont know what to do to get rid of it.
Lying "Good Spirit" or Communicating with a "Bad Spirit"?
We just don't know what to think, to sum it up.
So, this was all the way back in August. Me and my sister invited a friend over to our house, and one day we got overly curious about the paranormal, so overly curious that we went to 2 stores trying to find one, but didn't, which resulted in us actually making our own!
Haha, but anyways. We started playing with the thing, and none of us took it seriously at first. But then, it started getting real, and truly interesting. We were asking it questions about our future, and we were getting answers we liked, along with ones we disliked.
We kept talking to the same spirit, and we always said a good prayer before and after the session. I believe that the spirit is a good one, because it's been months since then and nothing paranormal or harmful has happened to any of us. However, some things it told us have come true, and some things were true, like facts we didn't know.
Now with the stuff we were told, we're all tearing ourselves down about it, like doubting it.
I just wanna know what you think, if a good spirit was lying, or we were actually communicating with a bad spirit, and it got our hopes up.
Thank you so much for all your answers. It'll be really helpful because we all still don't know what to believe, and it'll be nice not to hear "Its not even real!" for once.
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.
Anonymous I have always been skeptical of the Ouija board as it just always seems like someone is moving it when I would touch it which I guess is the reason there are so many skeptics. So I decided to make a simple change which would prove to me that its either fake or real as we had many "spirits" come through that night so I had 2 of my friends put on blind folds so they could not see anything that was happening. My thought here was that if suddenly no spirits came through anymore, it was obviously one of my friends. Well that didn't happen.
I put their blind folds on and I assure you neither could see anything through them. I asked the obvious first question "is there a spirit here that wishes to communicate". It sat there for probably a minute with no movement, then it slowly slid to "No". A shiver went up my spine and I got goosebumps even though I still thought maybe they still moved it and got lucky. So I asked "why don't you want to communicate", assuming one of my friends got lucky and was able to hit the word "No" and was pushing them to have to answer something that would make them try and spell something. But then it spelled out "W-A-I-T-I-N-G", hitting almost every letter precisely which told me instantly there was no way they were the ones moving it.
I then asked "what are you waiting for?", it slid up to "No" and stayed there for a moment, then spelled out "W-H-O". So I asked what seemed like the logical question to ask which was "who are you waiting for?", it slid up to "No", then slid along the numbers which were as follows "2-0-1-9-2-3-1". The responses were to precise for them to be doing it but they also made no sense to the questions I am asking.
So I was getting confused but also for the first time felt like there was actually a real connection to something instead of "knowing" one of my friends were moving it. So I asked "who are you, what is your name", and it spelled out "S-T-O-P". Getting the feeling what I was communicating with something that definitely didn't want to talk, but I also wanted to get some information that made sense to me. So I said "please talk to us", it slid up to "No", and whether it was just a coincidence or not, about 2 seconds after it slid up to no, the light bulb in the lamp we were using blew and it went dark. I grabbed a flashlight and got a new bulb for the lamp and got it replaced and by that time my friends had taken off their blindfolds and were sitting at the table and I looked down and the planchette was sitting on goodbye. My friends swear they took their hands off of it was soon as the bulb blew and never touched it. I don't know if that's true, if they wanted to mess with me or if it got there some other way, but I think I am done with Ouija boards going forward.
Prince of Hell
It was November. I was at my grandmother's house. Back then, I LOVED the Paranormal. I was obsessed with it. I first heard about Ouija boards from the new movie Ouija. It peaked my interest. So I made a homemade Ouija board. Here's how my session went:
Me: Is there anyone here with me?
Me: What is your name?
Me: Are you good?
Me: WIll you hurt me?
I closed the session and looked up who this BELPHEGOR is. It turns out Belphegor was a demon and a price of hell. Well there's my story.
Deumus on the Ouija
So it was a couple years ago, and my cousin wanted to play an Ouija board. At the time I didn't know what they were, but I played with him, he showed me what to do and we read the instructions.
We took out the board and began to play in an abandoned house in CA. He asked if there was any sprits who wanted to speak and nothing.. We sat there for about 5-10 min. And the planchette started to move, neither one of us were moving it. And we said hello.. They responded H-E-L-L-O back.. We asked its name and it said D-E-U-M-U-S. We asked if it was a good or bad spirit and it moves to the moon, we asked if it was a male or female and it said female, it then spelled out M-A-D we asked why and she said B-E-L-I-E-V-E
We then asked if it was because I didn't believe cause at the time I didn't and she said Y-E-S then we heard a crash when a lamp fell off a shelf. We were scared so we tried ending the game but she wouldn't let us, so we forced it we said goodbye and closed the board.
We went for the door but it was locked. My cousin kicked the door down and we ran out of the house, we left the board in the house and ever since then we've experienced weird things like our names being whispered at night and things falling, and lots of shadows in my house.
One day I was riding my bike down the street in front of the house we used it in, (and left the board in) and there was a tall woman standing in the window where we used the board. We never went back to the house and I live in TX now. If no one has still moved into the house I guarantee the board is still there.
In Texas as I was walking down my street with one of my friends there was a house no one lived in, the owners left without telling anyone, they were just gone one day and never came back, it had been 2 years since I moved to TX and about 6 months since the owners moved. Anyway, my friend and I walked in front of the house, and what I thought to be the same woman as in CA was standing in the window, my friend pointed her out and I looked and got freaked out and my friend didnt know why. But I ran.
Is this "Deumus" the woman, and is she following me?
Ouija and Rituals Before Breakfast
When I was around 20-21 my fiancé and I did our Ouija board sessions in the park. Several times what happened was we got nonsense by a bunch of dogs, as it had been next to a dog park. This particular dog park had been notorious for dog fights, which had increased our odds of;
a) Being alone
b) Getting in contact with something
Anyhow, I've been an ameture paranormal investigator for about three years at that point in time (and I continue, despite my hindrance) This time, I encountered somebody named 'Leonardo' though in reality from a standpoint of five years later, it mustn't have been something that liked the rituals I was doing. Nothing too bad. I asked its death, and it started cursing at me, insulting me, and said very vile, and degrading things. Upset with this, my fiance began to close the session. However the ghost refused, we asked why he was doing this, and it moved to "Demon". My fiance was a religious man, and took the horrible piece from the board and slammed it on 'Goodbye'. Later, nothing seemed to happen. So we (decidedly) continued on with something else.
We played the triangle game. The rules go as follow;
1. Enter a place with minimum to no distractions.
2. Designate a person as ring master/handler.
3. Lie on your back, and close your eyes.
4. You should see a dark building, surrounded by a forest.
5. There is a dog, he will act as a signal if the "Night terror" (As I call it, different names circulate)
6. Wander for as long as possible, and DO NOT let him get you under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!
(I still play it today.)
Anyway, I entered the rituals "Body of effect" and began wandering around. I very soon saw the dog, as it trotted off into the forest. It wouldn't be wise to let it escape, so I ran after it. I could hear my husband's commands as to where I am stop. As I'm feeding what I see to him, I asked what was happening. He said the branches on the dead trees (Long since abandoned) break off. I was going to ask to leave, before I heard him gasp. Apparently, he saw a big, clawed black shadow leap from one bush to another. I was IMMEDIATELY pulled from the ritual, and we went home.
This is a story from way back, so I'm glad to share the details to the few who wish to listen. Enjoy the thrills.
Online Ouija Boards and Real Ouija Board Games
I've had a Ouija board experience without playing on the actual board game. Online Ouija boards are just as real as the board games.
I accidently clicked on a YouTube video of two people playing with a Ouija board. I clicked off then went to bed. Suddenly I felt like my room was tilting sideways.
I was hearing people meditating humming in the next room and there was no one there.
I was hearing evil voices that I wasn't hearing in my mind and I felt like I was being watched.
I was seeing people with burnt faces and having visions of me being run over by cars.
This was a few years ago and I would never play on a Ouija board again. I now have depression and heart problems.
Home Made Ouija Board and the Ghost of a Dog?
One time me and my friend were messing around and talking about a ton of our own ghost stories. We decided to do a Ouija board.
We created the board out of a piece of paper and a shot glass. Only 3 minutes of waiting for someone or something to reply I saw something dark, dart under a bean bag that was in my friends basement. I then screamed and started crying jumping to the edge of the pull out bed. We left the Ouija board downstairs and slept up stairs.
Approximately a month later we tried it again in that same friends basement with one extra person being our other friend. That night before we had been planning to do it in the morning. That same night we were laying on the pullout bed taking snap chat videos in the dark. In one of the videos I was singing a scene from the new Lorax. The song went something like "let it die, let it die, let it shrivel up and die".
We replayed the video only to here what sounded like a bark in the back round. We tried make sounds to see if it was one of use that could have made the sound but nothing could match it. There was no possible way it could have actually been a dog because 1. my friend does not own a dog 2. we were in her basement and lastly it was about 4 am.
I firmly believe it was my friends dog that had passed away a long time ago.
Although this is not the scariest store I believe its worth sharing. Me and my friends are all 15 years old.
Halloween Ouija Sleepover
Okay, so me and a few people were at our friend's place for a sleepover. We were all talking about ghost stories and horror movies when one of us noticed a Ouija board sitting on the top of a bookshelf. My friend who lived there said she'd never seen it before, so everyone started freaking out. A few of us were very intrigued and wanted to open it and play. Everyone else was completely against it. So we went to sleep.
In the morning, we all decided to try to play it. We got it down off the shelf and opened it up. We read the instructions and began to play. We asked the spirit who it was and it went to random letters that we figured spelt "HOWARD". We found out that he was very nice and funny.
We continued communicating with him for about an hour. We asked him if he was evil and he started towards yes, but then quickly headed back to no. Thankfully. Apparently he knew one of the girls in our circle. He spelled out her name multiple times and said he knew her as a baby. Of course my friend was flipping out because it was her. We said goodbye because we were all so scared.
Later we decided to play again. This time we found a female spirit. She told us her name was "DT". We asked when she passed away how old she was when it happened. She told us she was 59 and died in 2007.
After, she told us she knew two of the girls in the group. It started to spell out "HA", all of us assuming it was gonna spell Hannah.
But it just stopped going to letters. It started to go towards the corner of the board and then stopped. I was the first to realize that it was pointing to our friend Hannah. As soon as I said this out loud, everyone screamed. We continued asking questions and found out that the two girls the spirit knew, had met her. And then it hit them. They remembered the spirit from when they were little. They used to watch football games together. It was the mother to a boy on the football team, who died of cancer. Our friend ran upstairs to talk to her mom about it. Her mother had some recollection of this story.
This, to be honest, was very scary for myself and all of my friends.
First Ouija Board Experience With Jack
Okay, so basically ever since I can remember I have always had an interest in the paranormal, spirits, etc etc. I am currently 16 and last night, along with a friend (who is currently 15), we shared our first Ouija Board experience. I had been reading these stories about it all day and searching the "Do's and Don'ts" of Ouija boards and stocked up on my knowledge and just became more fascinated by it, and finally wanted to try it for myself.
At about 9pm my friend and I created our own Ouija Board in my house using cardboard and used a shot glass as the planchette. We did some more last minute research and then went ahead and did it. We did it in the park along the road from us because we had read that it may not have been wise to do it in either of our houses.
Expecting to get no results, after having asking any spirit guides etc to protect us, we asked if there was anyone there. Almost immediately the planchette moved slowly up to yes. We were both astounded and wondered if either of the two of us had moved it, but we didn't. We then found out that it was a male, who was 8 years old called Jack. We then asked if he was a good spirit or not and the planchette moved over to yes. (Although we also assumed it could have been lying, as a lot do) But this put us at ease a little bit.
We then went on to ask how he was and if he was happy. He moved up to "no" quite abruptly, so we asked why. He then spelled out, "F-I-R-Z-Z". We thought he meant fire, so we asked if that was what he meant, but he then spelt out "Z-A-H-M." We had absolutely no idea as to what this meant, and we were started to get a bit creeped out in general, but before we got to saying goodbye the planchette started moving down the numbers (which we know was dangerous) so, we said goodbye immediately and asked Jack if he could then move to goodbye too, but the planchette shot straight up to no. We repeated ourselves and it again went to no. So we then forcefully said goodbye, slammed the glass down on goodbye to break it and then ripped the cardboard up and disposed of it.
I realize this isn't the scariest story ever, but it's creeping us both out and I'm not sure if we did anything wrong/right or if we should be worried about anything. And what the letters "F-I-R-Z-Z" and "Z-A-H-M" could mean.
Floating Ouija Board Planchette In College
I'd always played around with the Ouija board at family events as a kid but eventually grew out of it. In my sophomore year of college I was with about 4 friends and with nothing to do on a Friday night one of them had suggested playing with the Ouija board.
It was all fun and games for the first half hour or so with the usual stupid questions and accusations of who might be moving the piece. Suddenly it began spelling out words we didn't understand. We were taken aback until it spelled out the only English word we all understood... death.
One of my fellow students yells out "Bullshit" while all hands are still on the piece. In an instant the piece rose off of the board about 1/4 inch and floated there for what must have been 3-4 seconds but felt like an eternity, then dropped. At the same time we all heard and saw a large crack appear in the dorm window. That was enough! Everyone ran out.
For days we talked about it among ourselves and shared the story with others. Some of who went by to see the window as it hadn't broken just cracked. This was in 1979 and I haven't touch or played ever since.
A Ouija Spirit Moved Our Couch
My friend Alison and I decided to make our own Ouija board because people at school were asking us to do it. We made one and lit the candle and used a 50c coin we placed it down and set it up but decided to watch videos of what happens with a Ouija. We then freaked out and then chose not to do it but we left the Ouija board open with the candle. We realized the candle was still lit and blew it out but since we didn't talk to the spirits we just closed the board and ripped it up without saying goodbye.
20 minutes later my friend and I were lying on two couches joined together. We started hearing noises and didn't do anything about it. The couches then started to separate and started moving and none of us were moving the couch. The couch that was moving my friend was on and it was taking her away. She started freaking out and jumped on to my couch.
We moved the couch back to see if the couch wouldn't move. But it moved backwards. We started freaking out and woke up Alison's brother to sleep with us in the two joined couches. We tied the bottoms of the couch up and the "spirit" didn't bother us when her brother slept with us. At least we think its a spirit.
Throughout the night we heard scratches and bangs. In the morning we woke up and there was melted plastic laying on the kitchen bench.
Ouija Board And World War III
When I was in high school in the late '60's, my boyfriend and I 'played' with my Ouija board on weekend nights, lighting candles in the dark and asking harmless questions such as "Will we get married?" or "Will we go to the same college?" The planchette used to fly around the board under our fingers; we didn't even have to keep our fingers on it but only just above it, so we could see that we weren't pushing it.
One night as we were ending our session, I decided to ask a serious question: "Who will start World War III?" This was during the Cold War years, and later my boyfriend admitted that he had been thinking of the answer "USSR" while I was thinking "USA." We were shocked to see the planchette go straight to C-H-I-N-A when neither of us had even been thinking of China. We stopped playing with the Ouija then and there.
That was over 40 years ago, but in this day and age the Ouija's answer is as disturbing than ever.
Worried G From Ouija Board Wants To Hurt Us
My friends and I went to that new movie called “Ouija” on a Friday night. The next day, my friend found a Ouija board and bought it so that we could try it out that night. None of them had ever tried it before, but I had once (nothing happened when I tried it).
There were 4 of us and we all gathered in my friend’s basement around 8pm. We were all so excited, but none of us really believed in that sort of thing. We instantly started getting messages from a spirit. He told us that his name was Zack and that he was 3 years old. He said that he had died in a fire and that he was our friend. He said that he was buried in the cemetery behind my friend’s house. Then, we started getting messages from many different spirits. There were at least 6 others that we had talked to that night. Once Zack came back to speak with us, he told us to leave. He said that there was someone bad that he was scared of there and that we needed to be scared, too.
The next morning, we played again and got a message from a 57-year old named “G”. He said that he had died in a car accident and that he was not our friend. We then asked him why he didn’t like us. He spelled out the word “DRINK”. We were all scared because we had had a few drinks the night before. We asked if there was anything that he wanted us to know and he said yes so then we asked what his message was or what he wanted. He replied with “KILL YOU”. We asked if he wanted to kill us and he said yes. We were all so creeped out that we instantly said goodbye and closed the board.
My friend said the next day that he had felt like someone was watching him sleep, had heard footsteps walking around upstairs, and had heard doors closing in the basement (where we played) when he was home alone. We are all still worried that that man wants to hurt us, and plan to attempt to talk to him again this weekend for more information.
