I’ve never had a close relationship with my father, he was satanic and believed he was the son of Satan. As a child, I remember him practicing satanic rituals on me and my siblings inside our home. I did not like participating but I had no choice. He would summon spirits and use me and my siblings as practice mice. He was such an evil being, but as much as I feared him I loved him. I remember the day he died, December of 1992, I was 8 years old. I didn’t know him very well because he was in and out but I will never forget his face, his power, or the entities he left with me.
Shortly after his death, I started having night terrors which is very different from nightmares. I lost a lot of sleep, and sanity. I began seeing and feeling spirits through out the night, and telepathically communicating with them through dreams. I remember …
My boyfriend and I rented our first house when we were just out of high school. We had a one year old son and we both worked almost fulltime. I worked during the day and he worked at night. He was a drummer and we decided to put his drum set in the extra room upstairs. There were two bedrooms and one tiny I don’t know what room upstairs. Downstairs was a living room and small kitchen. In the tiny room upstairs there were family photos from the owner. She told us she had two kids one girl and one boy. We had met them before and they were typical Thai-Chinese kids, chubby, fair skinned, black hair. The owner claimed to be a Christian but we noticed since the day we moved in that she wouldn’t stand in the house if the lights were off. We figured she must be paranoid or whatever.
The best selling board game in history, many people believe that the Ouija Board is an ancient tool used to contact the spirit world. Some even claim that the board dates back to 540 BC.
However, while similar devices have been used since ancient times, the Ouija Board was actually patented on February 10, 1891. But, to this day, who actually invented the Ouija Board is still a subject of debate.
Some historians claim that the board was invented by E.C. Reiche, a coffin and cabinet maker. In 1886, Reiche sold his rights to the spirit board to the Kennard Novelty Company owned by Charles Kennard and several associates. But, many believe that the board was invented by Elijah Bond since his name is listed under “inventor” on the original patent documents.
Regardless of who really invented the board, Kennard began producing them in 1890 and sold them for $1.50.
Charles Kennard once stated that he got the name Ouija
My family moved to a small town in Mississippi. The home was 100 years old + and I thought it was beautiful. Upstairs my younger sister shared a room and across the hall my younger two brothers shared a bedroom. Each bedroom was large and had a closet at each end of the room. We shared a large bath upstairs. The tub was a original four claw deep tub. My parents sleep downstairs with their own bathroom. As a teen I thought we hit a gold mine because I’ve to share a bedroom with all three siblings with no privacy. In our bedroom one of the closet wouldn’t open no matter how my father tried to open it. So my younger sister and I shared a closet besides it was a large closet with plenty of room for our clothes. The first night we all as a family were tired from unpacking our boxes. It was a unusual hot April …
Well hey guys let me start off by saying you need to read part 1 to get what I’m saying posted July 25 09 DARK FAMILY SECRETS well as you know after my terrifying experience I said goodbye to jersey and my pop pops haunted land and moved down to Texas. I had some family down here doing some things so its been business as usual so after my lawyer sold the land I didn’t want to hear anything about it. I went to church got blessed and prayed.
I still have crazy nightmares every now and then but pills and booze fix that. JK Carmine took it the hardest we ended up dropping out of school and joining some “church” I think its a cult but he’s happy so I guess that’s all that matters so anyway I’m in Texas doing what we do and this past November I get a missed call with a jersey number I listen …
Wchasihen I was a little girl, I was no older then four or five years old when this horrible haunting began. I was an only child, and I was the daughter of older parents, and to my knowledge, they were not religious at all! My father was an atheist, and he was teaching me from an early age, that there was no such thing as ghosts or angels or even god himself. My mom was right behind my father in his beliefs, but I think she at least believed in God, but never talked about it, but she definitely was not a religious woman by all means!
I was a very well cared for child, and my parents were good people, who treated me well, so I was not an emotionally abused child or neglected in anyway.
I remember having these horrible nightmares every single night, and I call them nightmares because, this is what my parents believed they were, …
