In light of it being Friday the 13th, I thought I would share a creepy story with you, something that really happened to me…something that completely freaked me out.
After graduating high school in DE, I moved up to NY to attend college. I was living with my dad, and dating a really nice guy, Jeff, whom I had met at school. I was eighteen, and like most eighteen year olds, I knew it all. *rolls eyes*
Well, Halloween night, Jeff and I decided to hang at my house, and hand out candy and watch scary movies, while my dad did laundry downstairs in the basement. Getting into the spirit of things, so to speak, we decided to pull out my Ouija board and mess around with it. I had only ever used the Ouija board with my mom, and both of us being very strong conductors, we’d had really good “reception.” We also knew how to protect ourselves, which is crucially important when working with a spirit board.
After setting things up, we jumped right in, and made contact right away with a spirit who claimed to be a young boy from the 1800s. As most spirits go, his spelling was a bit sketchy, but he was very energetic and eager to work with us. After asking a few questions of this spirit, Jeff was not convinced that I wasn’t moving the pointer myself. We began to ask personal questions that we already knew the answer to, but that the other person would have no idea about, in order to prove the validity of the spirit. I began to notice that I could “hear” the answer in my head before it was spelled out on the board. I started to ask questions in my mind then, and watched as they were answered impeccably on the board. Jeff began to get a little suspicious as I became more intent and silent, and so I made an effort to continue chatting, glossing over what I was doing exactly when Jeff began asking questions.
As I started to feel comfortable with what was going on, I began to feel pretty brave, and was soon asking the spirit to do things like tickle Jeff’s nose in order to make him scratch it, and so forth. Jeff continued on, unaware of what I was doing, as all of these transactions were taking place in my head. I was astounded-I had never had such an interaction before, and while I was nervous & a little scared, the excitement of it all drove me forward unrelentingly. I did realize that what I was doing, without my friend’s knowledge or consent, was technically against his will, but I ignored any squeaks of protest my guilty conscious made, as well as any screams of danger my intuition uttered, and plundered ever onward.
It wasn’t long before I asked the spirit if it could “enter” my friend and communicate verbally with me. It expressed that it could. My next question was, if I allowed this to take place, would it “leave” Jeff when I asked it to do so. It expressed that it would. I mulled this over for a while, before asking the question again in as many different ways as I could think of. The spirit always replied the same, that it would do as I had bid it. I made it swear & promise several times, disregarding completely everything I had been taught about the spirit world, and while I was smart enough not to trust it completely, I must have given it a little of my trust to listen to it, and to do what I did next.
Taking a deep breath, and crossing my fingers, I asked the spirit to enter Jeff. Watching closely, I saw Jeff’s facial expression change dramatically. The way he held himself seemed to shift. Something behind his eyes seemed different, scared in a wild sort of way, like an animal almost. Suddenly terrified, I ordered the spirit to leave Jeff immediately. It did. I watched Jeff, and chatted with him a bit to reassure myself that he was, in fact, alright & perfectly sound. He had no idea what I had just done. Seeing him unharmed by my little “experiment” emboldened me further and so I tried it again, and watched mesmerized as Jeff seemed to change right before my eyes. He stared at me as I watched him, and when the phone suddenly rung, he jumped like he had never heard such a noise before. Wide-eyed, his whole body tensed, he watched as I answered it & quickly hung up. I got him a popsicle out of the freezer, and after unwrapping it for him, placed it in his hand. He didn’t know what to do with it. I had to show him, after which he gobbled it down. He wouldn’t verbally communicate with me really-I remember a very few one word answers, and several nods & shakes of the head. Communicating with the spirit in my head now seemed a little different now as well, I think because the spirit wasn’t as focused. He was very caught up in looking around and touching things. He would listen to me, but I couldn’t seem to hold his attention for very long.
I left the spirit in Jeff’s body for about 30 minutes or so, and having begun to worry a bit about “evicting” him from the physical world, I ordered him to leave Jeff’s body and my house and return to the place from whence he came. Jeff’s body seemed to deflate a bit once the spirit left, his face shifting slightly again, back into a more Jeff-like expression. He told me he didn’t feel well, he felt very tired, and was really thirsty. After getting him a glass of water to sip, and something to eat, he asked me if he had fallen asleep. He continued to complain of drowsiness, and he wanted to go home, but I wouldn’t let him at first, I wanted to make sure he was okay. After another 30 minutes or so, I let him leave, reassured that everything was fine, he just felt drained. I continued to let him assume that he had fallen asleep while watching TV. The next day he was fine, right as rain. I never spoke of this to him, and I stopped dating him shortly after this occurrence.
Older and wiser for many, many years now, I know how many mistakes I made, and count myself as extremely lucky that nothing terrible happened. I knew then that I was swimming with the sharks at the deep end of the ocean, but being just another stupid eighteen year old, I believed myself invincible and chose willfully to ignore everything I had been taught.
I would not advise anyone to try what I did without knowing exactly what you’re getting in to, how to protect yourself & any others involved completely, and how to fix any issue or problem that may arise. Never summon anything unless you are 100% sure how to send it back, and have a back up plan. Never involve anyone without his or her knowledgeable consent.
