The Peacock Feather And The Ouija Board
One of the Etsy Artists who told us about a time of usong the Ouija Board is The Peacock Feather.She has a vintage focus in her work.Some is in the video posted.You may visit her shop here http://ThrPeacockFeather.etsy.com
This is her story in her own words:
"I lived in a house and behind me, my girlfriend (P) lived in the upstairs of a house. Across the street from her lived another friend(R). We were all in our 20's and we all had kids. This was on Long Island and at one time the area we lived in had been a small Indian reservation.
They dug out the ground next door to my friend behind me to build a new house. Every night around 11:00 p.m. we would hear what sound like children playing.
I asked P if she heard it too and she said yes, but we never saw anything.
R was very very psychic but we didn't think anything of it at the time. I suggested that the three of us try the ouija board to see if we could find out what was making the noise.
We all went to R's house and we sat in a little circle on chairs with our knees touching. Again we did not realize that by touching like this were forming a strong bond.
We put our hand on the planchett and it started moving like a race car. it was going so fast we couldn't keep track of the letters to form words so P said she would write the letters down while R and I used the planchett.
R was not looking at the board but had her eyes closed and her head straight. I decided not to look at the board either as it was still flying but P was writing down all of the letters.
My arms were getting really tired and I said this is silly we should stop and P yelled, No. No I have two paragraphs already.
we went until there were three and my arms just couldn't do it anymore.
P started to read what she had written. We believe it was a child and a female but the name sounded Indian. she talked about how she had drowned in the bog.
we all looked at each other. what was a bog? we had to get the dictionary and looked it up to see that it was swamp land of which we were surrounded us where we lived.
It spooked us so bad that we went to the bathroom holding onto each others hand because we were that afraid. We waited for R's husband to come home from work, he was a cop, and he had to walk us each home even though we all lived within feet of each other LOL.
anyway before we left we all prayed for peace for this child and I told them to pray that night too. we never heard the noises again and the ouija went under my bed.
years later when I learned that we could have easily attracted something no so good it went into the trash. The other two never touched one again either."
Thank you to The Peacock Feather for this information.Next time some more comments from Ouija Board users.
