I freaked out my mom once with the Ouija board she had. It wasn't the normal one, but an oracle kind of one,.. she called it that anyway.
First of all my mom is one of those people who only do pagan stuff when she thinks its cool. I was interested in it not because of spells, but because it was interesting. She just wanted an easy way out.
Not a good way to become a pagan....
Anyway. She had unfolded the thing and put the little round bobbit thing on it, and was watching me as I straightened it out. I reached out to touch the bobbit and it moved (darted) across the board as if I were playing tag with it.
On the more common one, they have a triangular bobbit, made of plastic and with a lens, on pegs. I freaked her out worse making it flip over when I went to touch it.
Thing is, at that point I was pissed off and annoyed at her because she was playing with something like that because it was a toy, and because she wanted to be cool. I didn't want to do it, but she would make me come in and use it with her. I guess I had others in the room that agreed, and they helped me prove to her that Ouija is NOT a game.
We burned the common one, but I think she has her oracle board still. Thing is, now I've got a bunch of little imps running around my room. None of them bad (imps being shadow like critters/things you see darting around out of the corner of your eye)
One of them is about the size of a cat. I thought we actually had a cat in the room because I was fixing my contact and brushing my hair (I'm coordinated ^_^) and saw it out of the corner of my eye, and turned, and about jumped out of my skin when it didn't go away like they normally do. It stayed there a bit longer and was gone. Not too much longer, but long enough to catch a full on glimpse.
There's another, about man sized that stands by my jacket hook (I'm in a dorm room, so this is all within like 14x14 feet) Freaked the hell out of me when I saw it the first few times. Kinda still does, but hasn't caused problems as of yet.
I have Bob the ghost as well, but I think he's just a follower. He haunted my first dorm room, and has been with me since. He's great, although he had a tendency to throw things at my head my freshman year. I just wish he would fix our tv now.
There was one spirit that scared the hell out of me. I was going to the bathroom one night (having made a Ouija board with a friend of mine, it seemed dysfunctional, but I guess it wasn't) and there was this shadow... darker than the dark in the room, with a crimson outline that whispered to me "Go to bed!" And I about peed my pants... luckily I was just coming from the bathroom and didn't have to worry. Safe to say I ran up the stairs about killing my toes. My dad got pissed and yelled the same thing at me a few seconds later!
So in other words, don't mess with these things, you get spirits hanging around you even if your only playing! You get some of the worst if you don't beleive it actually works, or are goofing around. It's my mother's fault that she didn't do this in a serious way, but in all reality, the few spirits and imps I've got right now keep me company. I just don't want that other thing with the crimson outline back... THAT wasn't cool, it felt sooooo mean!
