My Creepy Ouija Board Experience

Spirit Communication Gone Wrong

The infamous ‘Ouija board’ has plagued people’s imaginations all around the world for centuries. Holding a great interest in the occult myself, I can surly imagine why. Having picked up a few books featuring mundane witchcraft spells as a young kid, I began scouring the terrible dial up internet we had at the time for more interesting stories and information related to specific occult rituals and the like. Although, I always kinda kept my distance, never actually making it a reality for myself by participating in such touchy practices as these, not to mention I usually had my hands full enough with some other paranormal crap which seemed to always come about.


Please comment below if you have an idea or story to share. Everyone’s opinion matters here and everyone’s input is greatly appreciated!

Eventually, as always, a rainy day came around and a few friends and I decided to give the old spirit board a chance for shits and giggles. Now, we didn’t want to just go buy one from the store that glows in the dark or something, no no. We wanted to do it right, by the book so to speak. I remember reading a few articles online about how to create your very own spirit board, how building your own talking board and planchette from scratch would lead to better results with communication, certainly due to the direct act of putting clear intent into the construction and design of said board. Essentially allowing an easier connection between you and the other side, ya dig?

The creation of our spirit board was relatively simple. First off, we used a marker to write out the alphabet, numbers, hello, goodbye, and what have you. Next, we just cut out the letters and numbers, and neatly set them on the floor in their correct positions. Then, we set a clear, glass coffee table cover over top to secure the board in place. The design worked quite well, actually. Lastly, we made a decent planchette out of some thick paper and used candle wax drops to give it a bit of a boost underneath with some makeshift feet. I’m guessing it probably only took us around 15 minutes or so to finish it.

Before trying out our homemade spirit board we decided, why not jump into this experience the best way possible; by ruling out all possibilities for fake or self created encounters. So, we thought up an idea to solve this problem real quick. Instead of using the planchette as a group, we decided to have one person ask questions and another operate the planchette by themselves, completely blindfolded. After wrapping a few shirts around the lucky ducks head and making damn sure said person couldn’t see a thing, we fired up a few candles and started asking the board a series of questions. The answers we received soon after were in no way expected to say the least.

That day, something strange decided to join us in conversation. This supposed entity we eventually  spoke to, after only a few minutes of questioning, revealed itself to us as a scared child in need of help. It told us that it was very sad, and that it needed help finding its family. We asked the being why it was so sad, and why it was still here, roaming the earth and talking to us. Our reply consisted of a broken story about how the ‘child’s’ house burned down in a tragic fire, which apparently left the whole family dead. Soon after asking the entity how we could help it out, something really freaky occurred. The reply we received to our offer sent chills down our spines instantly, like the feeling of a snowball being crammed down your shirt in the middle of winter.

The entity informed us that we all had to die in order to help the situation. Simply, we asked, “How can we help you?” And the being replied, “Die.”


That one little word basically brought our little adventure to it’s knees. Immediately after closing down the discussion and clearing the session, we ripped the blindfolds off our buddy and left the room. All of us felt very strange as you could imagine, and the air around us felt somewhat thick, you know what I mean?

By the way, I have a bit of information I came across awhile back you may find interesting regarding the general area where our spirit board experience occurred. According to the local historical archives, several houses in our area were purposefully burned to the ground, killing many people trapped within. These murders occurred, I believe, during the early 1920’s when JP Morgan’s steel mill was fully functional and in complete control of the little neighborhood. If I can remember right, the multiple cases of arson became a reality due to work related tensions within the community and the steel mill at the time. Coincidence?


I still haven’t tried using an Ouija board since and I don’t plan to in the future! That experience truly gave me the creeps back in the day. Scary shit, mahahahahaha! Right o. Please, share your stories and thoughts with us below, thanks ya’ll. 😀


“I had a book that was given to me as a kid that was called ‘Faeries.’ It was this dark, sinister book with pictures that used to scare me because they were these creepy little creatures. But, I was always really drawn to that fantasy world, more than a sci-fi world, in terms of outer space stuff.”

  1. Any communication with the dead hold a element of risk.

  2. There are safer ways of communicating with the other side if that’s what you want. There are also safe ways of helping earth bound spirits to return to the Light where they can be free, at peace and happy.
    Personally I wouldn’t let a ouija board anywhere near me!

  3. my partner and I use a spirit board fairly often. I was introduced to a home made board in 2008 which was fun and involving and yes strange things happened. My girlfriend made a board herself which is amazing to look at and we have never had any problems using it. We do approach it carefully and have ‘protected’ ourselves from harm and ‘bad spirits’. information has come through which is accurate and thoughtful. occasionally the energies have been wrong so we have closed it down and tried again later. You can look at our board on our blog here:

    We find it to be another useful tool in communication with Spirit and we indeed often use it for healing purposes, as a means of focusing healing energy, and it works very well.
    any comments appreciated.

    • Thank you for sharing! This event in particular took place back around 2006. I don’t partake in the board anymore really but I wouldn’t be against sitting in on a session as long as it’s not at my house lol. I look forward to checking out your blog! 👍👻😀
