Ouija Board Returns From The Trash

Posted on May 21, 2009

When I was younger, my older brother, sister, and me had a board. We hadn’t had it long, my older brother had just brought it home, thinking it would be fun to mess with. About 10 minutes into asking questions, my mom came in from another room, not knowing we were messing with it to begin with.

She grabbed the board, and said now it’s in the house. That was all she said, the next morning was trash day, as I was taking the trash can down, my mom came out with the board and put it in the trash can, I watched it until the trash truck came and picked it up. Now that was roughly 26 yrs ago + or – a year.

My mom was cleaning out her attic a few yrs ago, I get a phone call as I live out of state now, asking why did I get it out of the trash! I asked her what she was talking about, and she said that DAMNED BOARD! and instantly I knew. I told her I watched the trash truck pick it up that day a long time ago, but it was there, cause my brother had put his name on the back of it when he bought it.

I asked if she was sure it was the same board, and she said yes, his name was on it. Now here is the thing, my brother has been dead for 14 years this past March. He never cared for it, just thought of it as a game, and my mom a little crazy that night long ago. I know for sure it went into the trash truck and my mom was sitting close by a window to see as well.

That board had made it’s way back into my mom’s house some how and sat there all this time. Now she has since burned the board, and disposed of the ashes.

Me and my sister to this day do not know how it got back in the house. We know my brother did not do it. He wrote it off as a loss and a lesson learned in life is all.

    Hey Jason That is really weird isnt it? But I have seen a few similar stories where someone thought they got rid of a Ouija board only to find it again later on. Thanks for the story, its very interesting and I am really looking forward to the comments on this one!

  2. Moya says:

    I believe that does happen, my mother in law told me once that her and her sister used to play with one of the boards and her dad and mother told them to chunk it, so they did and every moring it would be at the door step. I think she told me that they threw it out about 5 times and everytime it would be at the front door. the next moring, At the last time that this happen her father burned it and poored aqua bendita on it. and never came back. (holy water).

  3. CuteSagittarius says:

    Creepy! I have read many similar stories. Thank God I’ve never bumped into a ouija board!

  4. alberg15 says:

    i have read many ouija board stories but i have never messed with one. i wish u all luck whoever messes with one.

  5. trolldoll1681 says:

    i believe i played with one once along time ago but have not seen one in over 30 years if people have them i don’t know about it but yes i don’t like them because of what there capable of and those people of the most haunted show use them. things happen to them when they use the boards i guess you just have to use them sensibly and not ask for trouble but theres a fine line there please people be careful

  6. gypsy says:

    Ouija board (‘Ouija’ comes from the French and German words meaning ‘yes’) , you do not need a Ouija board to talk to spirits . You could use ,a rock ,a piece of wood , a doll , or just anything you would want to use in place of a board, where you focus your energy and intent into ,(if you believe strong enough ,it will work), the point being , when you use a board,you are granting permission for spirits to talk to you so they do, I do have a board from the 1960′s though ,that is quite charming :) but please ,if your going to play around with talking to spirits , first learn how to protect yourself from the bad ones . Because yes , they are out there.

  7. morgan says:

    i wonder

  8. Greg says:

    Back in the early 90′s my grandma said some cousin’s of mine were in her basement and they played with the Ouija Board down there and they all ran back upstairs crying, my Grandma said she had them all in her bedroom praying. I haven’t the slightest on what happened to the board.

  9. Magykbuzz says:

    i agree with gypsy, ouija board is not the only way to interact with spirit world. it’s just mere a tool, in my country the use of doll is often to interact with spirit. Never try it just for fun cause you don’t know what will come for you, especially if you don’t know how to defend yourself against evil entity. I think there’s a similiar games called guardian angel (don’t let the name delude you) it’s just another name of it.

  10. Blanca says:

    Don’t you think that burning the board might be bad.. because i heard from someone that when you burn it bad things start to happen..but i don’t know i mean i just heard it from someone..

  11. BecKY says:

    wow… actually I was just thinking of using one of those boards for fun and now i know I WILL NEVER EVER USE THOSE THINGS!!!! that must have been so scary for you

  12. Hayley C. says:

    freaky story. the same thing happened to my mothers friend. they took it with them out of state and threw it in a dumpster. the next day they were home, and it was set up on my moms friends floor when she woke up…… she knew it was hers because of what she did to the box. (she drew on it)

  13. Karen M. says:

    Maybe it was coming back so you could still talk to it!

  14. jennieboo says:

    yeah ive never messed with one mysellf heard to mny bad stories.its like looking for trouble and isn’t there enough trouble in ones life lol. anyways we all hve to be very careful wat w invite into our homes our lives hearts and minds.Some things are just meant for God to know.he wasn’t being mea when he told his people not to mess with fortune telling and the occult he was warning us becuase he loves us.I will admit it is sometims hard to resist reading the horoscopes in the sunday paper lol. God bless

  15. Eileen says:

    Magykbuzz……use dolls to talk to spirits? Is that how dolls get possessed? have you seen the possessed dolls on ebay? Just wondering. I have had some sketych oujia board experiences….enough that I won’t touch one….scary stuff…..

  16. Magykbuzz says:

    Eileen……..well, It’s sort of possessed. It will writing or moving on it’s own. Yes i’ve seen it on ebay. thanks for the information.

  17. Karen M. says:

    Really, there is one on e-bay, going to go and look now……..thanks!

  18. Ms. D says:

    My family and I have had very negative experience with a Ouija Board many years ago. We had to contact an Indian Medicine man to cleanse our house of evil spirits. He took the board with him, as we were unable to destroy it. Since the cleansing, a feeling of peace settled over the house and there have been no more paranormal activities.

  19. Kyle says:

    honestly i’m about to go buy one of these boards just to see if any of this is true, defend yourself against evil entities ? all these stories are very interesting to me and i’m not a skeptic but i dont believe it all either i’d rather experience it, all these stories how am i as a human being with logical tendencies supposed to trust peoples stories, maybe i should try to attract an evil demon ? just to even see what would happen who knows, but i’m seriously considering it after all these stories

    • PhoenixGirl says:

      Curious killed the cat…. :/ Let us know what happens. I’d like to know what happened to the cat.

    • Courtney-Rose says:

      Hey, I’ve owned an Ouija board for about a year or so now and I’ve only had one negative experience beforehand. If you are going to use on though, burn white sage insence, before, during and after it, to make sure the area has been thoroughly cleansed of negative energies, and also use a pentagram, whether an actual one made of wood or something, or just a printed version, on a piece of paper. Things should go smoothly from then on, as long as you also call upon the different elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit, before the using the board to help protect you. Call them seperately, asking that their affinities help protect and guide, and thank them seperately when you close. That is possibly the safest way to do an Ouija session. I know it sounds boring, but it will help..

      P.S do not mock the spirit… They don’t take kindly to that, I know from experience.

  20. Grey Wolf says:

    I think that there are many paranormal avenues…but you need to becareful what you mess with. Because if you do or don’t believe in the spirits and the spiritual realm.It is real and ‘does exsist!! When you use a Ouja Board is is a tool that opens up a portal for spirits good or bad to talk to you…and attach themselves to you and come into your home and life.Even if you don’t believe..and think it is only a game it is not !!Then you may have a lot of unwanted problems..and it may not be so easy to get rid of.Because the 1st rule is you have to invite it in ; in some way. So why take the risk.The bad or evil spirit will not be honest and will trick you.It is up to you what you do; I am just trying to warn others.Be Blessed !

  21. jen10 says:

    ouija boards are very dangerous if you dont knw how to protect yourself! lotsof people have been found dead after playing with those demonic things. kyle i advise you to not buy one of those evil boards. because im sure that if u play with it you will regret it for all your life! that is if you live..

  22. Jen says:

    I know this is true, My mom told me about how she used to have one well it flew across the room and almost hit me in my crib, so she got rid of the board and had givin it to my aunt, well it was up in the closet at her house and they woke up one morning with it sitting on the table wanting to be played.. that was the last time and it was disposed of.

  23. LuiJess says:

    that is freaky. My whole body is literally shaking thinking about the ouija board and experiences I and others have had.

  24. eric e. dale says:

    well my friends friend he hung himself he and 6 other peole were playing wit and days later he killed himself. the medicen man said something got inside him.

  25. chelli the greatest says:

    in using the evil board, you guys keep saying dont play unless you know how to ”protect” yourself from the evl spirits? how do you protect yuorself?

    • Angel With Horns says:

      Even though i have never “”"played”’ I Believe that To protect yourself you should memorize prayers and have a bible near by. But what do I know you ? :) Just be careful and don’t make any spirits angry :P

  26. Ape Skin says:

    Have you ever tried like, a Ouija board in like, ‘tree/table/guitar’ edition? ROFL looks epic, yet expensive. C;

  27. anna says:

  28. Fizzywozziah says:

  29. Molly says:

    holy crap, i used to just think those things were fun to use like on charmed… i guess not…

  30. Chris H. says:

    When I was 10 my older sister and her friends had a ouija board, one day my grandmother threw it away and it was gone for months. Then one day my grandmother opened her refrigerator and the board was sitting on a shelf in the fridge. She thought me or my sister had taken it out of the trash all those months ago and put it in the fridge as a prank. We didnt do that, neither of us know how the board went from being in the trash months before, to being in her refrigerator months later.
