Ghosts: Food for Thought . . .

Readers, I have often run across accounts of paranormal activity that became extreme and frightening as the result of people becoming involved with the occult.  Ouija boards or other types of experimentation have been said to invite dark presences. We have all read these stories.

Many of us had ouija boards as kids and used them with no results, negative or otherwise. Yet one reads warning after warning about serious problems resulting from the use of ouija boards.
I had this experience:  although not experimenting with the occult, I did live in a haunted house when I was in my early twenties.  During that time, I began to have precognitive dreams which came true later: names, dates, places – detailed information I’d have no way of accessing.  I became very intuitive or “psychic”  during and after that time.  So I do think that if you’re around paranormal events, that may somehow scratch the surface of your sixth sense, your ‘third eye.’
A thought about ouija boards:  the reason they seem to unleash so much for some people may have to do with something other than ghosts.  What if the kind of focus and mindset that comes with using the boards opens a pathway to one’s subconscious – a kind of dream plateau.  In other words, one might be dealing with psychological rather than spiritual phenomena. Just a possible explanation – nobody really knows.
What do you think?  Any theories? What has your experience been?  Your comments and reflections as always, are most welcome!

  1. I didn’t mention last time (in your post about black dogs/spirits) that my first sighting of the black dog happened that same night I played the Ouija board.
    I’m not sure about the mindset, but it could be a combination of both (spiritual and psychological) at play. Perhaps the two go hand in hand? Who knows…

  2. I have never messed around with a Ouija board, I’m always too scared of what could happen. I’d totally go somewhere that wasn’t my house, but spirits can latch onto people. I am considering using one in my future, but I’m fairly sure my house already has a ghost in it.
