Thanksgiving Ouija Session 2013

From our Second Annual Thanksgiving Ouija Session

 

Mom and I sat down for our 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Ouija Session. We hit record, sat in silence for a quick prayer/meditation, and then began. 

“We would like to request assistance from angels, guides… to guide us in communicating with any spirits or entities from the light that would like to communicate with us tonight, through the Ouija board, or the recorder, or through the spirit box. We’d like to learn from the Other Side, learn about the Other Side, or to receive any messages from loved ones, or spirits who would like to help us… from the light.” 

We asked all of the typical questions for initiating spirit contact and gave plenty of time for response. We also encouraged communication through sounds, knocks, speaking, etc. Mom suggested blowing out a candle. 

“I want you to be able to communicate in the best way that you can, so if that’s not moving this planchette on the Ouija board, then you can knock, or speak, or make a noise. Can you let us know somehow that you’re here and willing to communicate?”

We kept the session light and even started up some general conversation while we were waiting. I encouraged spirit to give us suggestions or advice to make communication easier or more successful.

No activity. No responses.  

After fifteen minutes, I turned on a “new” spirit box, formerly owned by Stephen Hill, investigator and author of Something Unseen. Many of the same questions were asked again, including requests to say our names, before and after saying them aloud. 

Our spirit box session lasted approximately 17 minutes. 

After an initial review of all audio, no EVP were heard. During the spirit box session, a few possible “hello” responses could be considered, and several unimpressive quick snippet responses that didn’t last longer than one or two clicks or stations. 

We gave the Ouija board one more try for just a few minutes before once again asking for feedback and suggestions on making communication easier or more successful. 

No activity. No responses. 

“Thank you for your energy and your presence. Thank you to any spirits who were here trying to communicate with us. And thank you to our guides for protecting us and helping.”

 

Hope you weren’t disappointed. Better luck next time? At least we got some pretty pictures out of the session, right? For last year’s Thanksgiving session, check out A Very Ouija Thanksgiving

Holiday Spirits…

There’ll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
of Christmases long, long ago.

Ever hear those lyrics to Andy Williams’ It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year and wonder just what those scary ghost stories were all about? Many would probably think this was a tradition more fitting for spooky Halloween festivities. I always assumed it was a long-lost tradition, but after one of my recent reads, I wasn’t surprised when I discovered it dates back to Victorian days. Oh how I would love to jump into a time machine!

Spirit Photographer William H. Mumler supposedly took this famous photograph, purportedly showing Mary Todd Lincoln with the ghost of her husband, Abraham Lincoln. (From Wikipedia)

Well the lyrics to this song got me thinking of something else in the last few days. Even though I’ve always believed we have special spirits with us (spirit guides, guardian angels, etc.) every moment of our lives, I also believe that there may be other important or meaningful times of the year, such as holidays, when our passed loved ones and other spirits come to check in on us. I think the gathering of families, heightened emotions, reliving past memories, and telling stories of loved ones play a big role in this. 

If you’re a regular reader here, you know that I’ve recently begun doing some experimenting with the Ouija board. Not at parties, not for silliness, no alcohol involved, just research. A few weeks ago, a few members of my family (who are also members of my paranormal investigation team) and I had a quiet Ouija session late  on Thanksgiving night. Nothing much to report, but I hoped that a holiday would be a good time to achieve some good spirit communication. I’d planned on trying it again over Christmas, but the timing and atmosphere just didn’t seem right. I plan on having a few sessions here at home this week as I’m still on my holiday break. I’ll keep everyone posted.  

Does anyone have a story you’re willing to share relating to this topic?
