I have recently started focusing on my spirituality for about six months. I have a friend who has always been into her spirituality. About three or four years ago. Me my best friend (grace) her brother (Cody, a Christian) and her bf (Stewart) were all hanging out in my room. Grace started going on about making a ouiji board and trying it . and myself, I didn't believe that it would work. So I said OK. We made one, lit a candle, and turned the lights off . but stewert wanted nothing to do with it so he sat out. Me, grace, and Cody all put our fingers on the board and opened it. I was the one to talk I said "is anyone there" it went to "yes" at this point we were all going on about "who moved it . was it u" and at this point I started to realize it was real, noone was moving it. I then continued, and asked the name and it said "vado" I said "how old r u " he said "6" I said "when were u born" he said "10-4" I then didn't know what to aske and grace says "ask it how it died" and then I did. "How did u die" I said ,and u hear Stewart from the background "you shouldn't have asked that" he said. As the board went to the letter "u" we then freaked out and tore up the board before saying goodbye, made a new one, we asked if vado was still here, then he said yes and goodbye. After this I looked it all up and I believe his name is Samuel Miguel vado and he died early 1900s . I don't know why he thought I kileed him. And after I vowed to never touch another ouiji board again. Since then, I have had friends try (my best friend Bailey is very spiritual) and she has a ouiji board but it has never worked for her. Grace has tried since then and it hasn't worked. I also accidentally called a spirit who was a sad little girl when using a pendulum one night. Why did the ouiji board work for me and not for my friends ? They all want me to try BC it worked for me but I'm terrified of it. Is it the same reason I called upon the little girl. My sisterhood thinks it's BC my light shines so bright in the spirit realm. But I don't want to do the ouiji again BC I know it'll work and they know too so that's why they push me, this all happened when I was about 14 I am 19 now and much more educated in all of it but I still fear it terribly
I'm kinda surprised that no one else has responded to this.  I'm far from an expert on the paranormal, but I have had some fascinating and potentially dangerous experiences.  Also, I'm a non-denominational Christian, so my advice all come my knowledge of the Judeo-Christian-Islamic viewpoints.

I'll start right off with the big one... demons.  Generally speaking, demons do not have the ability to interact with the physical realm.  They can't whisper in yr ear or put thoughts in yr head.  They can't make doors slam open or shut.  And they certainly can't make themselves seen or physically harm you.  They do, however have two main weapons in their arsenal.  The second is that they can posses a person or object... think creepy doll... but in order to do that, they need permission from the individual or owner of the object.  The second weapon is the more insidious one.  They can work through a conduit, such as a medium, seance, ritual... or a ouija board.

Their goal is to create a sympathetic image, convince you that they are yr friend, and get yr permission to enter this realm in some way.  Often they will do so by pretending to be a child, a woman in distress, or a loved one.  So yr hesitation on using a ouija board again... sounds like a good call.

Benevolent spirits, or the souls of those who have passed, do not need a conduit to interact with our realm of existence.  God gives permission to the souls, whether they are in Heaven or Purgatory, to touch the physical plane of existence under certain limited circumstances.  For instance... to provide a warning or lend emotional support... to someone in need.  You still won't see them.  But they have the ability to make themselves known.

The point is, if you have to rely on a ouija board to contact a spirit, that spirit is not one you want to contact.

That's pretty much what Christians, Muslims and Jews believe.  I can't speak for Neo-Pagans, Wiccans, Buddhists, Atheists or any other faith.

As to why you seem particularly in tune with the paranormal when yr friends are not... if you interact or accept one malevolent spirit into yr life, that's kinda like putting up a neon sign proclaiming 'Open Auditions' in the spirit world.  Again, from the Christian perspective.

I mentioned before that I've experienced some unexplainable things... specifically, over the past year.  And while I'm still unsure of what to make of those 10 months, I do know one thing.  If anything new rears it's head, I need to tread carefully... because it's entirely possible that I am now on some 'evil spirit' mailing list.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.  And if you don't like the fact that I'm a (non-denominational) Christian and want another view, we have forums for other beliefs.

I wish you well 8 )
