I have a lot of belief in the Ouija Board and have respect for it but I have never feared it,as many folks do. I have three of them,the first one I purchased 42 years ago and I still use it. Because the other two Boards were misused,by others,I refuse to use them anymore but I will not discard them.

I don't think of myself as superstitious or impressionable at all, but when I have had Ouija boards, which I've bought on maybe three occasions, I've ended up throwing them out. When I took them out of the box, I got a bad feeling every time. I've heard all the lore like everyone, but it just comes down to a strong feeling of, "I don't want to be near that."

I saw the Exorcist when I was a kid in the '70s, and to this day, I've never felt such horror. Real fear. I've watched it since then, almost to "test" myself, because it IS a good movie, but finally I just decided not to ever watch it again. I feel like it has the potential to bring heavy, negative energy into my home and/or into myself.

I've often wondered if the actress,Linda Blair,was ever negatively effected from playing the role of Regan in The Exorcist I know I would have never allowed any of my Daughters to play that role no matter how much money was involved!!!! Great movies though and I still watch them.

I've always wondered the same thing...the few times I've heard her discuss it, she said it didn't bother her at all. Maybe things are a LOT different behind the scenes and when you're acting, flubbing lines, starting over, etc., it breaks things up a bit and just feels technical. I couldn't imagine anyone letting their kid do it, either!

Interesting that a lot of child actors have turned out so badly, running amok and wreaking havoc all over the place, but the kid who played someone possessed by demons turned out just fine!

I stated this once before, and I guess it bears repeating.
In all cases, it is NOT the board.
When you sit down to "play" with the board, you automatically through telepathy, open up your thoughts to the spirit world.
You could do the same thing by just thinking about the same things you would be thinking if you were actually using the board.
It is a thought process, and nothing more.
When you sit down, and ask the board questions, you are expecting some sort of answer.
Just your thoughts of getting an answer are enough to telepathically send a message to some spirit.
The ouija board is a toy, and nothing more.
What one reads into it is nothing more than a reaction to one's own thoughts.
Bob.

I read somewhere for the really heinous stuff Linda Blair's body double did it. If you ever watch TV closely, and watch a lot of crime stuff -- I think they protect the children from the bad stuff. Go into autopsy, see the real child on the table and there's an edit where they focus in on the faces of the ME and detective. Pan back -- what's being said is never gory or scary -- edit -- close up -- ghastly stuff being said.

Wow! As someone who collects Ouija boards (but never "plays" w/them), would you please elaborate what happened? I've always been fascinated by ppl's ouija board experiences. So would you mind telling what you saw or experienced? What happened to the family, did they eventually find some peace? Thanks!

I will be laying there and you feel this "plop" on top of the mattress. Like I said, that has happened probably a half dozen times.

But the weirdest one was the other night. I was asleep with my arm hanging down over the side of the bed and I felt something distinctly grab my hand and tug on it. It startled me and I thought one of the cats had gotten into my room so I walked out into the living room and all 3 were sound asleep in various places. I told my Son about it and he said I was probably dreaming, but the tug was so noticeable it woke me out of a sound sleep. I have chills typing this post.


Don
I had this same experience several times in the house I used to rent. (I have a post about another aspect of something in this house on the thread about ghosts.) I do have cats, so I would think one of the cats jumped on the bed with me, but when I felt for it, there was no cat. It was weird. Also, in that same room, I had my computer in a corner. Sometimes when I sat at the computer I would feel something pressing me in my lower back--like fingers, or paws. Thought it was one of the cats, but I looked and there was no cat there.

Never said anything about this part to anyone, but reading your post made me recall that.

I think only once did I endeavor to play with a Ouija board, when I was a kid. I didn't like it, didn't like the idea of it, and quit after a few minutes. I'm kind of glad about that after reading some other people's stories.

had a friend that used to use it in high school and later with her kids--during the kids younger years an entity(the psych team thought it was 2)---attached itself to the entire family and the family on the other side of the building--making their lives a nightmare with the variety of things that happened to both families

despite the help of a famous demonic hunter couple,priests that were schooled in this,and an eventual move--they remained plague for years but eventually spiritual assistance helped them overcome this

this made media attention nationally so even now they need to live quietly away from the public eye

my other 2 co-workers who used it were told during a session they had in our break room which i overheard-----both were told they would die soon---one was much younger than i ---both died that year---the younger one that morning of using the board after she went off duty in a fire in her home---the other 6 months later of an illness she did not know she had---this convinced me to NEVER
have one in my home even if brought in by my kids friends
