Another great story from Charlene at Paranormal Hauntings.  Read this one, Mr. Fuld’s death is quite bizarre. Makes one wonder, doesn’t it . . .   

Helen Peters, a medium, coined the name OUIJA after conducting a séance on a board. She claimed that the planchette spelled out ‘OUIJA’ after asking what she should name it. 416 more words

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!

Ghosts: When Ouija Boards Go Wrong!

Readers, here are some scary examples of ouija board issues!  Although these were popular when I was growing up and were actually marketed as toys (seriously!) – many people have traced paranormal problems to the use of ouija boards.  Read on . . . reblog from Paranormal Magazine, author Charlotte Lowe Kemp.

By Charlene Lowe Kemp When Hasbro trademarked the Oujia in 1991, the tradition of the board can be traced back to much further than that. Many believe the Oujia Board to be a portal to the spirit world, while others will argue it is nothing more than a parlour trick. Whatever you believe, there have…
