A plan immediately presented itself: Because we had apparently made contact with what are possibly the ultimate experts on the subject of love -- wouldn’t it be great if the Love Beings could once and for all solve Darcy’s problem and offer her a solution to her life-long quest for lasting love?


What a terrific idea!

Sure, I've got many boxes filled with dusty notebooks of sessions done since I was 8 years old, and I'm now 48.

My first session when I was 8 was with my oldest brother, Felix.  I have four siblings and we all tried working the board in various combinations with poor results, but when Felix and I worked it together, the thing went wild.  Felix is 11 years older than me, so he would have been around 19 when I was 8.

Anyway, I still have that first session in writing, and the old Ouija board told us all kinds of stuff that never came true.  

Back then we asked just very simple questions, and we always called the Ouija board by name.  So, for example, we would ask:  "Ouija Board.  How old will I be when I die?"

The board told me that I would die at age 41, which obviously never came true.  It also said that I would grow up to be a fairly high-ranking officer in the U.S. Navy, but that after I got out of the Navy, I would loose my way, become and alcoholic and then a homeless bum.  This never happened either.  We asked it how I would die, and it said that I would be stabbed to death in a knife fight inside a small neon sign shop in downtown Detroit.

Then we asked for details of how this would come about, and it said that, as a homeless man, I would search through the garbage for small items to sell on the streetcorner for petty cash, and that I would spend every dime on cheap wine.  Then it told me that I would get into an argument with another bum who was begging for cash on the street in "my territory."  It said that on a very cold day we both went into a neon sign shop and started arguing, and I got stabbed to death.

The board said that my youngest brother would grow up to be a garbage man, and that he would die at the age of 21 after someone had illegally dumped radioactive material into a waste bin, thus giving him radiation poisening.  This did not turn out to be true either.  And so on -- our favorite quesations were about how we were going to die, how long we would live, and that kind of stuff.

My mother, who was a very devout Catholic, would yell at us whenever we asked it stuff like "when will I die?"  She would yell at us in Polish to "get rid of that Oiuja Board."  Still, she let us play with it, and didn't mind when our questions were less frightening. Even though a hard-core Catholic, I think she considered the board a harmless toy.

But, anyway, we were always amazed at how crazy and creative all the things it told us were. For example, we lived in a small town in Minnesota, and none of had ever been to Detroit, or would have ever thought about something like a "neon sign shop."  

Sometimes Felix and I would argue with each other.  He would yell at me, "You're moving it!"  And I would swear I was not, and then I would accuse him of moving it, and he would protest as well.  This is when we first came up with the idea to blindfold one person to make it tougher to cheat, even subconsciously.


But one time mom took the board away from us for a long time because one Saturday night, we contacted a dead man by the name of Hal Witzman.  Mr. Witzman had been a well-known plumber in our town for many years, and had died a couple of years ago.  Mom thought it was just too eerie that we were talking to dead people we had actually once known. In our child-like innocence, we would ask questions like, "What's it like in your grave?"  And Mr. Witzman would say, "It's cold and lonely."  Mom didn't like this at all.

But then we asked Mr. Witzman if he felt that he had wasted his life toiling away as a plumber, and did he wish he had done something more interesting with his life, and the spirit of Mr. Witzman became very angry, and started insulting my father, who owned a grocery store.

The dead Mr. Witzman said:  "What's so bad about working as a plumber? Your own dad is nothing buy a prune peddler, and a tightwad!"

Then we would say:  "Ha! Ha!  You're only a dead plumber!"

And then we also told Mr. Witzman, we told him his wife remarried only six months after he died, and she seemed very happy now -- and this made the dead Mr. Witzman extremely angry -- we also told him that we did not believe that his wife had ever put flowers on his grave -- and Mr. Wiztman said he would start haunting her, and us as well.

At this point, mom had enough and confiscated the Oijua Board.

But the point I should make is that when one continued to use the Ouija board over a period of many years, and do so consistently, you develop a whole new knack and sensativity with it, and you eventually get much richer, more advanced kinds of readings, etc.  Maybe I'll discuss that more later.

Anyway, thank you Anvil for yoou kind comments, and to all others here as well.  When I get time, I'll dig out a few more sessions from my 40-year stack of notebooks.

I'm really surprised anyone finds them all that interesting.

Hi JN:

Yes, about Darcy. A complex situation, but let me just say, that particular session with the Love Beings, although absurd and painful, was actually a turning point in her life.

The thing about Darcy is that, she was one of those people who was cursed by her own extreme beauty.  Everyone wanted her for that, and not for who she was inside. Her physical appearance was like an extremely bright light that blotted out anything else -- it wasn't her fault, nor the fault of most of the men who dated her, though some of them were probably just plain old jerks.  But she dated some nice guys, Too, and, for whatever reason, I think because the relationship started out with such extreme focus on phyiscality, it was destined to fail.

The Love Beings session prompted Darcy to start contemplating the nature of things on a more deep level.  For example, she began to ponder the concept of love itself.  Just what is love?  It is real, or just a human construct -- a concept?  Does love exist independently in the universe as a force in and of itself? What are the spiritual dimensions of love?

Darcy felt she had to find out about her own "love constructs."  As I said, my cousin was a Zen monk, but he went back to Poland shortly after the Love Being Session.  But as it so happens, a friend of both mine and Darcy's happens to be one of today leading Zen scholars, and happens to be from our small home town.  He is a Zen monk, has  many best-selling books on the market today, and runs a Zen center ....

Anyway, Darcy decided to take up Zen meditation at our mutual friend's Zen Center, and spent 10 years there practicing intense meditation.  To make a very long story short -- Darcy eventually got in touch with a greater reality -- the biggest breakthrough for her -- and Zen helped with this -- was letting go of the idea of "attainment" and "desire" for what she wanted.

Darcy discovered that the more one is obsessed with something, the harder it can be to grasp -- the tighter we squeeze, the more it slips through our fingers.  She learned that love is not something that one can "have."  Love is more like a grace that comes to us when we are ready to receive it.  The most important thing for Darcy to do was completely abandon that which she wanted most -- a loving relationship.  When she finally did -- when she finally genuinely expelled her intense desire to grasp what she thought she so much wanted -- she was free -- and shortly after that, she found love with a very terrific man.

One of the main lessons Darcy learned comes in the form of an old Zen aphorism:  "The best way to control a cow is to give it a very large pasture."

I should say, I don't mean this story to be an endorsement of Zen Buddhism.  I am not a Buddhist, although I have practiced Zen mediation since 1981, bascially as a hobby.  But I think there are many ways, and universal concepts that we all can get in touch with to help make sense of our reality.

Today, Darcy still thinks fondly of the Love Beings.  They set her on the path.  And I wonder:  Was this their motive all along?  Did they concoct their bizarre solution to get Darcy to do what she had to do?   Who knows. We live in a strange universe -- that's for sure.
