To Ouija or not to Ouija
It was 11:59 pm October 31st 2006 when Ann,
Michele and Eddie broken into the old Skylark
estate to see if it was really possible to
use a Ouija board and summon up the ghost
of old man Skylark. At the stroke of Midnight,
the trio of want to be ghost hunters started
using the board. After a few minutes of silence,
the planchette began to spin wildly. To the
surprise of the three, the board began to
spell out the word run!!!
Soon it spelled, to late he’s here!!!!
Now, if memory serves me, it was then that
the planchette began to move on its own. Ann
tried to scream, but it was too late. The
planchette had flown off the board and imbedded
itself into the wall beside her head.
They tried to run, but there was no place
to go. Old man Skylark was home and he had
guests to entertain!!!!!!
Hopefully you liked this little story, but
on a sad note, its little stories like the
one that I made up above, that cause people
to become overly scared of the Ouija board.
Lets also not forget that Hollywood hasn’t
helped very much either. Folks, let me make
one thing plain, Ouija boards are not in themselves
evil, and they are also not portals to the
underworld. The Ouija board is no more than
a simple tool. Actually it is one of the first
tools that early paranormal adventures used
while trying to contact or receive messages
from the great beyond. You have to realize
that the Ouija board holds an honored place
in the hallowed halls of paranormal history,
so don’t be afraid of it, learn about
its history and realize how it has helped
advance paranormal investigation today.
As I sit here and write this, I can already
hear the down with the Ouija Board patrol
screaming, NO!!! It’s bad!!!! Wow what
horrible language I am also hearing, and for
the sake of you the reader, I am not going
to write down what it sounds like. I will
say this, shame on you people with the bad
language, you know who you are. J
Now, before you continue to verbally beat
me down and chastise me, all you Ouija haters
need to throw away your pendulums and dowsing
rods. You guys also need to sell your K-2
meters on eBay and make sure that you distance
yourselves from all your medium friends. Why
you ask? If you look more at the big picture,
you will see that in one way or another, these
tools and people are doing the exact same
thing that the supposed little evil board
is doing. Now don’t make a hurried judgment,
just sit back and think about it logically
for a second or two.
Other than not having letters on them, these
items and people answer questions the same
as the Ouija board. They may not spell out
the answers, but they do provide info and
guidance. Actually these tools provide more
understandable information. They just direct,
flash, or in the case of the medium spell
a great deal better.
Ok, here is the deal, after reading this,
I don’t want you to be all mad and upset,
and I just hope that you won’t run in
panic the next time you see an Ouija Board
or hear someone mention one. You will hopefully
realize that this simple little item that
you can find and buy in the children’s
section of your favorite stop and shop has
had a profound affect on paranormal investigation
today. You should also hopefully realize that
it’s just a board no more no less, and
instead of the board, it is actually the people
using the board who are opening themselves
up to the paranormal world around them, that
relay the messages.
So think about it, read about it, and then decide
for yourself about it.
Scottie Stamper's paranormal adventures
started out when he was in his mid teens.
At age 15 Scottie had his first run in with
a full blown apparition. After recovering
from this initial scare, he decided to look
into those moans and groans that frighten
us late at night. After numerous scares he
is still trying to figure out just what paranormal
activity really boils down to.
Scottie and his Wife Rebecca currently operate
the Ghostville Times. Hand in hand they investigate
paranormal phenomena and do articles on paranormal
topics and other paranormal investigators
who spend their weekends and late nights trying
to prove or disprove the existence of the
paranormal world around us.
“When I can honestly provide you with
proof that I myself can’t disprove,
I will then tell you yes there
are paranormal forces all around us but for
I still have to say Orbs-R-Dirt”
