I was 12 when one of my friends brought a Ouija board over. I had never heard of it and knew absolutely nothing about it – if I had known anything about its history, etc., I would have said “Get that thing out of here!” She (I’ll call her Jennie) said it was just a board game that you could ask questions about the future, so I thought there could be no harm in it.
We asked it questions, but the answers made no sense – just strange names and gibberish, so Jennie put it away, and we thought no more about it. A few days later, strange footprints appeared in the garden in the backyard. Nobody seemed to be able to identify these footprints, which were unlike anything we had ever seen – sort of like a combination of a bear and deer footprint, if you can even imagine such a weird thing, and really big.
Then my sister-in-law was in a car accident and my parents went to the hospital with my brother. My nieces (who are my age) were alone in the house. It was a very hot night in July and there was not even a hint of a breeze. Suddenly, the door, which was closed, opened and slammed hard into the wall – we screamed and sat frozen for a minute until I said something like “What the heck was that?” and my niece, Gina said “That was not possible – nobody is here except us!” But, we all witnessed it, just the same.
Soon after that, my (up til then anyway) happy life began to fall apart. My best friend since first grade suddenly, and with no provocation, turned against me and tried to turn others against me. Some of my other friends remained loyal, but others joined forces with my ex-best friend to torment me, and to this day, I do not know why.
A couple of years later, my nieces were visiting again, and strange things happened. Two of them heard someone coming up the stairs and knocking on the bedroom door. They thought it must be my mother, so one of them said “Grandma, is that you?” but there was no answer. They were so scared, they ran into my room and slept on the floor that night. After we went to sleep, my niece Carla woke us up with a terrifying scream – she said that something grabbed her leg, and we looked and indeed there were red marks on her leg.
The next year, I began to have nightmares and wake up unable to move, which really scared me. My uncle was killed in a car accident a few weeks later.
I had a lot of unusually rotten luck – when my middle son was only two months old, a drunk hit my car head on and caused my son to suffer permanent brain damage. Then my husband died young of a rare genetic disease, and many other things happened, too numerous to mention here.
A short time after my husband’s death, I had just got in bed and said my nightly prayers and closed my eyes. I had a strange feeling, so I opened my eyes, and was horrified to see an evil-looking head floating about two feet away – I screamed, and looked again, and it was gone. I did not get back to sleep that night. Every body I told about this said I was just overworked and stressed out. I had numerous health problems, and was soon diagnosed with systemic Lupus.
I got married again, and after I moved into my new husband’s house,I saw that face again, and also saw black shadows in the living room. I prayed to God to make them go away, and they did, but they would come back. I found this site, and wondered if the Ouija board had anything to do with these things that had happened. I followed advice that people gave me, but that night I awoke to feel something holding my legs down and I could not speak at first, but them I managed to say “In the name of Jesus Christ, I command you to get out!” and my legs were released!
The next day, I Googled prayers of protection, and I found one that releases you from Ouija board evil and curses and everything, so I said that prayer for protection of my husband, my kids and myself, and also I said the prayer to St. Michael. The next night was peaceful. I hope this will help somebody who has similar problems! I’m still not sure if the leg-grabbing incident was a dream or what, but I have infinite faith in the Lord!
