Ouija Board Moved By Subconsicous?

Hi everyone,

This is the story of two of my friends, I’ll call them Scarlet and Tanya, and I using a ouija board. Although I am a believer, I’m not sure that we really contacted any spirits. In fact it felt like we were communicating with our own subconscious. 

The first few conversations we had came out jumbled. We’d ask questions and get nonsensical answers, or letters stuck on a loop. When answers did make sense, they all seemed to be related to Scarlet. Everyone we talked to had her last name, or was a distant relative who passed or something. 

Halfway through, Scarlet’s step mum came into the room, let’s call her Karen. Karen asked what we were up to, we said we were using the ouija board but that none of the ghosts were making much sense. “Stupid ghosts,” she laughed, and left us to it. The second she shut the door, the planchette (well, the shot glass we were using) starts flying around like crazy. It kept spelling out over and over ‘Kill Karen, Kill Karen.’ If we were talking to something, it was ANGRY. We talked it down, apologised for it, said we had to go and closed it out. 

Now I’m freaked, Scarlet is loving this, and Tanya wants to keep going. I’m too scared. So I say I’ll sit this one out and I’ll just take notes. So it’s just Scarlet and Tanya and they keep going. The next round, we decided to experiment around and see if anything came up for me, or for Tanya, because everyone we talk to seems to just be related to or know about Scarlet’s life. It’s weird. But when we try it just Tanya and I, we get nothing. In fact the planchette doesn’t even move. 

So we go back to all three of us. The last conversation we have is still so clear to me. We were asking typical stuff like if it knew any gossip about people that we didn’t. Then it’s telling us that Scarlet’s step mum has or is going to get breast cancer, and that her Dad is going to get cancer and die too. It tells us that both Scarlet and I are going to die. When we asked what we were going to die of, it spelt out ‘Heartbreak.’ It knows exactly what Scarlet is wearing, how many instruments she plays. Now some of this stuff we have no way of knowing, of course we don’t know if her parents are going to get cancer, but stuff about Scarlet could be known by us. So we ask about what her little brother is doing in the other room right now. It spells out ‘Turkish Delight.’ We go to check on him and what do you know, he’s eating a Turkish Delight. 

Im going to have to go and dig up the journal where I wrote all the conversations down, but that’s all I remember for now. I don’t know what to make of the whole thing. Some of the conversations felt so garbled like it was just heads babbling away. The one that got angry, it’s like you could feel it’s anger. But the way everything seemed to relate to Scarlet and her life, and that it ONLY worked when she had her fingers on the plachette has had me thinking all these years since it happened.

She’s an incredibly intense person, someone with a LOT of energy swirling around them, good and bad. Is it possible that energy can dominate it and make it move? Could it just be all her subconscious wanderings and gunk? Or everyone’s energy moving the thing?

No-one has turned out to had cancer, and neither of us have died yet. Some stuff turned out to be true but who knows.

Thoughts?

@Findparadise   I am a believer that Ouija operation can be sometimes subconscious and sometimes involve real external spirits. It sounds too possible that Scarlett is intense and conduit for real spiritual activity. This whole things sounds not healthy for your mental health and also includes the danger of an unwanted spirit influencing you. Although, mysteries are fun and exciting and you are only in this for fun, I would advise you to stay away from this.

I have heard too many stories of people regretting what they started.

Don't forget that the movements were caused by the ideomotor effect.

Yeah I think it’s entirely possible that she is, even if in this instance it didn’t involve any spirits. This was about 8 years ago now, and a few things have happened since then that made me think that spirits were around her. 

I’ve had friends who have wanted to do ouija since then but I refuse.

It definitely felt like it. What I found interesting was that it all revolved around Scarlet. Do you think someone’s energy/subconscious can overwhelm/be stronger than others?

This was a very interesting read; I had not thought about ouija boards in that way before. I think it’s entirely possible that were could also communicate with our subconscious, but there’s no denying there is other things that can come through that board. Be very cautious. You have no idea who, or what, you could contact.
