Ouija Board, Ouija Board

I bought an old one (still wrapped) last week. It's from the Forties. I'm considering trying it. Anyone have any good ouija stories?

Straight female here. When I was about 12, a Ouija board said I'd marry a guy named Tony. I remember it very clearly, because at the time, the only "Tony" I knew was my grandparents' dog. And yes, I did marry a guy named Tony. Still don't believe in Ouija boards though!

LOL, R14. Don't do it alone, OP. Ouija boards open a "doorway" to the spirit world, and more powerful or malevolent spirits may be able to force their way through. Especially if you are a weak or vulnerable person to them. A friend's neighbour was terrorized by a malevolent spirit for months after she used a Ouija board to communicate with her son who'd died. And no, she never even got to speak with him anyway, because the stronger spirits took over and wouldn't let him communicate. I am being completely serious. I'm *not* a nutcase, but I do believe that spirits exist and can cause trouble for living beings.

Absolutely true story: I was 15 in 1978 and used to play around with the Ouija board with some friends. I used to sometimes push the planchette and when I wasn't I was sure that my friends were. It was lame, but spooky and sort of fun.

One day, instead of our daily Scrabble game, my dad and I sat down with the Ouija board. My dad was a pretty serious guy, and this was the one and only time we ever used the Ouija board. We were living on the east coast and planning to move to the west coast. Our family would be driving out and looking at possibilities in three different states, but there was no definite plan.

My dad asked "Where will we end up" (note the phrasing). The Ouija board spelled out the name of an industrial town about 30 miles from a town that my parents were considering in one of the states. (The industrial town was not one that anyone would choose to live in then or now, unless they had good reason--which we did not.)

I know for a fact that I wasn't pushing, and I know my dad well enough to know that he was not pushing. Also, the town was not one either of us would ever want to live in, had no connection or draw toward. Dang board spelled out city and state, letter by letter.

Later that year we moved to a lovely college town about 30 miles south of the industrial city. My father and I thought it was pretty interesting how the Ouija board had gotten so close.

Fast forward ten years, my father gets very sick, is in the hospital for months, doesn't improve, is sent to a hospital near the industrial city, doesn't improve and finally lands in a nursing home within the city limits of the town the Ouija board spelled out ten years previously.

I'd moved away but came back to see him as often as I could. After about six weeks he passed on. So the "we" of he and me literally ended in the town that the Ouija board had so improbably and methodically spelled out years before.

r16 - it does make me wonder what the spirit world looks/feels like. I once asked a psychic if she'd ever tried to find out whether Madeline McCaan was dead. She told me that she tried to communicate with her but there were too many other people trying to communicate with her and thus she couldn't get through, or she was blocked by the other people. What you said about the strong spirits blocking the son reminded me of that. %0D %0D OP - I would never use an ouija board. Too many stories about people being followed by bad spirits after making contact through an ouija board.

My mom and her friends used the Ouija board and had asked their long time dry cleaner, who had just died, how much money she still owed. The people doing the reading had no idea but the exact amount came up.

So I thought it was harmless fun when we were given a very general assignment that was supposed to be "interactive" for a presentation in HS. I did some research on it's history and planned to end the presentation with a demonstration.

As soon as the teacher saw what I brought I was sent to the principal's office and then home. They were nice about it but freaked out.

A Ouija showed up in college and two very smart guys saw us playing with it and both pleaded with us to throw it away and told a story, which I can't remember now, about some awful thing that happened to them while playing with it and they scared us enough that we did end up tossing it.

by Anonymousreply 3008/06/2011

[quote]it does make me wonder what the spirit world looks/feels like.

The spirits I've "spoken to" indicated that their world was just a formless limbo with their spirit bodies floating around. But they may have been fucking with me (some of them are tricksters, and others are just assholes), or they may have just agreed with what I was already thinking.

The spirits can read your mind when you use a Ouija board. They literally enter your body, which is how the planchette moves and why if everyone touching it closes their eyes, it won't work (because the spirit can't see the letters anymore).

My friend Jenny and I were obsessed with Ouija boards when we were about 12-13. She had 5 different boards, I had 3, and we both used them all regularly; sometimes alone, sometimes with each other, and sometimes with other people, too.

Each board has its own "home spirit" who generally communicates with the user. Think of it like a cellphone: when you put the planchette on the board and rest your fingers on it, you make the phone start ringing. The spirit who "owns" the cellphone usually picks up, but it may take a little while for him to get to the phone (that's why the boards don't start working immediately, they need up to a few minutes to "warm up"). But other spirits, especially ones who are more powerful than the board's home spirit, can wrestle control of the cellphone from it, and take over.

Like I said, when you use a Ouija board, you open a doorway to the spirit world, through which they enter your body. If you are weak or vulnerable, a powerful spirit can then escape into our world and wreak havoc.

Oh, also, the spirit world is sort of timeless: any spirit you speak to can see all of the past and the future. (Sounds like Doctor Who, lol!)

That is how a spirit was able to correctly answer R22's father's query; it already knew where and how he would die.

If R22 had asked for more details, however, the spirit probably wouldn't have provided them. They know how much that would fuck up a person, to know when they're going to die, so they keep it quiet.

Also, like I said, many spirits are just major fucking assholes. Seriously, there are so many dicks out there, it's amazing a person can get any real answers from a Ouija board.

Of my friend Jenny's five boards, three of the home spirits were assholes, one was kind but a joker/trickster, and the fifth was an absolute gem, he was soooo nice and helpful and informative. We just called him "Ouija", and spoke to him most of the time.

Of my three boards, all three home spirits were major dicks, so I didn't like talking to them nearly as much as I did to Jenny's "Ouija".

But I also had trouble with a *very* powerful spirit who would wrestle control of the boards away from any of my home spirits, so I couldn't talk to them much anyway.

But this powerful spirit began freaking me the fuck out with some of the things he said, so I eventually stopped using Ouija boards entirely, as he would find me wherever I was (even when I vacationed across the country and used someone else's Ouija board while over there) and take over, and I was terrified of him.

We use ours regularly. Very handy. You have to be careful, of course, and apply safeguards, and avoid involving neophytes of unstable people in the process, and test the communicators to ensure they are not subjective fragments, external fragments or troublesome entities. And of course you need a primary medium for the communication focus, someone of experience whom you can trust and who can minimize distortions of the communicative intents. It also is necessary to have a trustworthy and steady overseer on the other end of the communication stream, who can serve as a sort of traffic cop and protector. This last also reduces the interference of troublemakers or worse.

With all of that in place, you can investigate questions concerning past, present and future, since time becomes a less fixed concern and the communicators have a vantage with more immediate access to such information than we have here.

Plenty of assistance gaining insight into people's motives, the unseen circumstances around past events, likely outcomes - we don't mess around with silly things and don't abuse anything or anyone in our intentions, but I can honestly say that in the last ten years of this work - probably using the board six to eight times a year - we have never obtained information that later turned out to be false. And we have heard many surprising things that later proved true, both about the past and what was going to happen in the future.

Be aware that ouija boards are like opening your front door and inviting all the homeless in your vicinity to come live with you. Once in your house, they are very difficult to kick out. Another thing to know: homeless spirits lie exceedingly well and will mix just enough truth to snare you. Don't think you are too smart for this because you aren't and they will prey upon your ignorance.

No one believes this story but here goes. At a house party back in the 90s, someone broke out a Ouija board. Being a Patsy Cline fan, I suggested contacting her. Two people who knew nothing about Patsy's life worked the planchet, and the spirit correctly answered questions only Patsy or a fan would know--the number of kids she had, their initials, the month and day she died, etc. I still don't know what to make of it to this day.

And regarding Hasbro--shit, you can make your own board for free with a big piece of cardboard and an upside down cocktail glass.

I had one as a teen that a friend and I used many times. I wanted to believe it worked because I was interested in spirits and stuff like that during those years.

The board never got a single thing right. Even answers to historical questions were wrong. Nothing bad or spooky ever happened, no matter how many times we complied with its wishes (for example, spirits would want us to use the board in specific places, or contact them at specific times of day).

In high school, myself, my sister and our friends would occasionally work the Ouija but we always had the best success when it was a combination of either me and/or my sister and another person. (My sister and I also always hear or see strange things.)

One time, a spirit came through and kept spelling about a bloody war and then started spelling "KRLS" repeated. When we asked for clarification, it slowly spelled out "Charles" and "Great" and when another friend went for a reference book and looked up Charles, one of the entries was for Charlemagne who was also known as Charles the Great and, being illiterate, would sign his name as KRLS. Everyone using the planchette claimed not to know that.

Another time, a skeptical friend made the dare that, to prove no one was pushing it, for the board to move. With our fingers still on the planchette, the board moved across the table, so heavy that it was actually scraping, went to the edge and when it began to tip over, started rotating slowly. Again, everyone else claimed not to be doing it and the way it was moving, it would have been very difficult to do.

We were also told about a house fire in the neighborhood from several decades ago, way before any of us would have been born. When a friend asked one of his parents about it, they confirmed it, adding that it was mother and several of her children who had died, all of which had been referenced by the board.

We stopped using it when one of our friends started getting very playful with it and very nasty things started coming through.

Freaky Shit. So were people this terrified with ouija boards before The Exorcist? I grew up in a post-Exorcist world, so ever since I was little ouija boards were seen as evil. I am fascinated by them and really want to try one. Is it better to try them in some other place besides your home? Or does it really matter, will a spirit just follow you?

R16 is correct, when you use a Ouija, you are inviting spirits into your world. I used one in a college dorm with friends. As the spirits answered questions we all asked correctly, many of my fellow dorm mates dropped out. Literally, one student would ask "how did Jimmy die" and when what was spelled out was correct, that person would leave.%0D %0D As the night went on, there were ony a few of us left. I soon realized that I had control of the board. I told my friends this and they did not beleive me. I took my hands off the board and told my friends to ask whatever question they wanted. Of course, the question would be, "who is Tammy going to marry." Whatever name I thought in my mind is what was spelled out on the board. Every time...whatever I thought was the answer that was spelled on the board.%0D %0D I even asked out loud.....are you reading my mind and spelling what I am thinking. The answer was "yes." From that day forward, I promised that I would never use a Ouija board again as long as the spirits were told to go away. %0D %0D And, I will NEVER do it again.

It's because different people have different internal strengths and weaknesses. I can't explain it scientifically, but it's true. Think about all the people who've survived various horrible events. Some of them succumb to PTSD and other mental problems, and others are able to fully recover and go on to lead healthy lives. The "type" of person who'd get PTSD is also the "type" of person that a powerful spirit could overpower and take advantage of.

Btw, I don't know if you all know this, but all people are eventually reincarnated.

The number of lives we've all had varies. Some spirits are on their thirtieth go-round, others have only lived once or twice before.

The spirit from my friend Jenny's board, the wonderful one that told us a lot, has never been born yet. He insisted he won't be born for another couple thousand years. (Which is probably why he was so kind, and willing to help us.)

So, if you're worried about the human race dying out, don't! We'll be around a long while yet. ;)

I do know of one locally well-known case in St. Louis involving a group of five gay guys in the mid 1970s who, after a Sunday brunch, pulled out a Ouija board for some fun. One was a well-known local radio and tv personality who was also a psychic.

The session immediately went bad. The board started spelling death and murder messages. They swore the room felt cold. And one fellow went catatonic, fell to the floor, and then after they revived him took a run to the balcony where he tried to jump. This was in a high-rise apartment. Afterwards he said he didn't remember anything but had issues with headaches and bad dreams and not feeling normal for months later.

The couple who had hosted said the apartment started having issues, from lights burning out to appliance problems to their feeling like they were being watched. They heard things. They finally moved out.

The psychic media person insisted that an entity had slipped in through the opening at the start of the session, found an easy host in the guy who tried the leap, and then settled in for a spell in the apartment or left enough of its energy behind to effect all kinds of trouble. He never went near Ouija boards again, and cautioned everyone against them.

Something that stuck with me was a comment that only spirits that have unfinished business or can't let go (because they died so brutal) can be reached through an Ouija board since the souls who died peacefully and have resolved all their issues have left earth and the living behind.

And usually most documented / retold experiences mention that the spirit isn't nice and manipulates or torments in order for the living to do his bidding.

Personally I use tarot cards which heighten my senses for my past, present, and future surroundings.

He always told me I'd be dead at 25, and would be "his" again. But I'm 38 now and still alive.

I haven't had any problems with him, or scary shit like he used to do, since the last time I threw away my Ouija board, which was about 5 years ago. (I actually hadn't used a Ouija board since I was about 23, but like I said, it kept returning to my home.)

I don't know what happened, if he changed his mind about me or he got sidetracked by something or somebody else, or what. Maybe he wasn't quite as powerful as he claimed, and couldn't hurt me once I stopped using any Ouija boards?

All I know is, I haven't experienced his presence in many years, and hopefully never will again.

This all kind of backs up the idea that we're all SIMs in a giant computer game. The spirits are the players, and human bodies are the avatars. Rowdy spirits can hack into us when given the opportunity.

To me, it would also explain the way humans are evolving... from plays, to books, paintings, movies, games, virtual reality, etc. It seems like it's in our nature to create other realities that we can escape to for new experiences. What's to say we won't create a way to physically tap ourselves into advanced simulations in the future, where our consciousness is shared by an avatar in a computer. We're just instinctively recreating what we've already done before in spirit form.

It also in a way explains the internet. A vast network, where we can all tap in and access the information we need when we need it. It's kind of a crude version of how the spirit world is sometimes described: a stream of knowledge, where they can instantly pull up information about past and future events.

When I was a teen living in Detroit, a series of murders of coeds took place and, being stupid teens, we decided to use a ouija board to talk to the spirit of the last girl who got killed and ask her who did it. I don't know if it was actually that spirit, but the damn planchette went off the board and pointed straight at one of the girls around the table. We put it on the board and tried again with the same result. We were so scared, we just put it away and tried to forget about it. Two or three weeks later, the girl's cousin, John Norman Collins, was arrested for one of the murders.

When I was young my sis was having a birthday party, we pulled out the Ouija Board and it freaked me out so much I've never gone near one since. I can't recall what the message was but it was really disconcerting. Later that night we played 'light as a feather, stiff as a board' which worked and totally freaked me out. Since that time I have had a healthy respect for, I don't know what to call it, the spirit world I guess. Creepy!

light as a feather is some magic trick where friends use "magic" to lift one of them up with no pressure or actual strenght being used "like a feather". Some claim it's a group hypnosis where people's bodies are numbed down so they don't feel like they are really lifting a heavy body.

Fun thread. I used to use Ouija boards with my friend on a regular basis when I was 13-17. We got the same spirit every time, named Ana, who told us that she enjoyed getting into people's bodies while they were having sex, spoke harshly of the last man she had been with before passing (saying she killed him for catching him cheating on her) and all kinds of other raunchy jokes. She had an intense hatred for my father and my friend's mother. We always knew when Ana was upset because the planchette would move around in very fast, strong circles. We'd often use the board in my friend's bedroom with the door closed and I can't tell you how many times that planchette would start spinning around, we'd ask what was wrong and she'd say "Bitch" or something like that-- sure enough her mother would come knocking on the door 2 seconds later.

There's no doubt in my mind that they're real. We'd test Ana out and ask questions in our head, then the person who did the asking would look away so they couldn't see the board and sure enough, it'd come back right every time.

After I moved out of the house, I used the board a couple of times with another friend but then could no longer find anyone who was brave enough to use it with me. I've probably not been on one in 10 years and finally found someone who isn't chicken shit, so I'm really curious to see if Ana is still there after all this time (I now live on a different side of the country).

A roommate and I once bought a ouija board to figure out what was going on with our haunted apt. 99% of what the board said was garbage that sounded scary but simply wasn't, but the one thing it did say that spooked me was when it asked me to "Turn around, for I am there!" ... I did not turn around. Wasn't about to feed whatever it was with my belief and turn around and see something. Nope.

I'm the one who's been posting some of the links to other websites on this thread like the Museum of Talking Boards link (can't remember which reply numbers I was).

First off, anyone who is a believer or disbeliever or whatever, you might want to read a book called Psychic Connections. It's by Lois Duncan (author of the book I Know What You Did Last Summer and Who Killed My Daughter?, which was a real life story about her daughter's murder and the psychic events that surrounded this). Psychic Connections is a fascinating book and there's a section in there about ouija too, if I remember correctly. No matter how skeptical you are, this is the book that'll make you wonder if you're wrong. But even if it doesn't make you believe, it really is a very interesting book.

To the people who say you tried the board in such and such place and nothing happened, there's nothing surprising about that. Like all paranormal things, nothing is 100%. There are many professional psychics who say the same thing, that this is not the type of thing that you can turn off and on like a light switch. Using an ouija board in a normal house will have very different results from using it in a graveyard or a place where a murder or suicide or other tragedy happened. Just because it was someone pushing the pointer doesn't mean that the board couldn't actually work at another time or in a different place.

Just something to chew on FWIW. Those of you who are actually thinking of trying the ouija board...well, this advice will probably fall on deaf ears but at least Google directions on how to use an ouija board safely and read them (even if you decide not to follow them). And read some of the stories of other people who used it, if for only for shits and giggles and nothing more. Again, FWIW to you.

His name was Seth. (Modernised version of Set?)

He told me he was pretty much the Devil's right-hand man; if Satan were the president, Seth was the vice-president. Sounds stupid, I'm sure, but that's how he explained it to me.

He also told me he loved me and that he and I were meant to be together forever. He said we'd both been alive several times before and that, each time, he'd murdered me so that we could return to our "fun" lives as spirits in Hell.

The last time I died was in 1929, when my bf (a reincarnation of Seth) strangled me. My previous life and death was in the 1870's-1880's; Seth says he was really jealous and angry with me that time around and let/made me "accidentally" drown when I was 16.

We chatted briefly with three different spirits- Wendy, Rex and Floyd. Two of them gave me specific years that they lived in the building (during the 60s) and the apartment numbers. I wish there was a way to look the info up to verify it, there's no way my landlord would have that. They all said that the building sucks now, is loud and has stupid tenants. I couldn't agree with them more.

Floyd said he was 8 when he lived here in 67. There's an elementary school around the corner from here that's been around since the 20s or 30s so I may see if they have a school roster with that name on it. Silly, but fun!

My house had an incident of haunting once. I heard my little brother crying and I ran to his room. His bed was shaking almost like there was an earthquake, except it was only the bed. I immediately dropped to the ground to look under the bed, and there was nothing there. I ran down the hall to get my stepmom and told her what was happening. She was heavily into Santeria. After she saw it, she ran back to her room and got some kind of water and said prayers, running and throwing drops of water around the house. It stopped immediately! This all took only a couple minutes, max.

I asked her what was happening and what she did to make it stop, and all she said was something about my sister and her friends playing with the Ouija board the night before. I was there watching then play (they were supposedly talking to the devil), by didn't confess. However, my dad thought it had something to do with her being in a feud with a witch. I thought that was likely since she didn't want to discuss it further with me.

Twenty years later, I have since grown up to be a skeptic and I have no explanation for what happened that day. My dad is now in denial and says "There must have been one of your older brother's friends under the bed shaking it as a joke."

I did the Ouija board one Christmas morning with my younger sister (it was a gift). I was 15, she was 12. I asked who in the family loved me the most, believing full well that the answer would come back, "mom" or else her first name. It didn't. It spelled, "Jennifer." There was no one in our family even named Jennifer. Made no sense. "Stupid board," I thought, and then put it away. Fast forward 30 years later at age 45. I volunteered to be a foster parent and I finally got a call from the State. They had a new born baby that looked like she was going to become legally available for adoption, although first I would have to foster her while it went through the courts (the birth parents were a mess). That baby's name was Jennifer. Today she is my daughter. Your family is there today waiting for you, far away, near by. And not just the ones from the past.

When I was about 16 me and my best friend used to use the Ouija alone. I guess one of it could have been pushing it but it was still really creepy. This guy would tell us about all the awful stuff he had done. He killed his girlfriend and sounded like a pimp. He was very funny though. We kept notes of the things he said but I don't know what happened to them. We ended up having a fight about him. I think he thought Mr. Ouija was an asshole and was freaked out.

Atheist here. I believe in NOTHING.

But I never could figure out how the planchette on the board moved by itself -- very speedily and with precision -- spelling out its answers to my questions when there were only two of us playing, and my friend wasn't even looking at the board (he'd grown somewhat weary of it) and I made sure my fingertips were barely, and I mean BARELY resting on it.

With another friend present at another time, we asked the 'spirit' to extinguish the candle we had burning on the dining room table, and it did.

All sorts of extremely crazy shit went on with the ouija board. This was all in the late 80s, early 90s. At one point my friends and I got so freaked out by the taunting from an 'evil spirit' that we burned it. But we were so obsessed that we started drawing new boards by hand so we could keep playing.

I'm serious when I say I don't believe in a spirit world, but I can't explain my ouija experiences back in the day. It was so strange.

I work for Hasbro. I've been to the factories, and I specifically asked to see where Ouija was manufactured.

The "pointer" (their term) is a simple mold and glue. The board is simple MDF/overlay/graphics — all done by machine.

The packaging is automated, but human do quality control. They switch out every few months because the atmosphere is creepy. The workers look a bit wild-eyed and terrified. My guide (guard) jokingly asked, "There are no bad spirits here?" The workers in Chinese fashion said, "No bad spirits."

One worker whispered to me (in Cantonese) a word that basically translates to "demons".

It doesn't matter who made the board.It doesn't matter what the board is made from. It is what you are doing with it that matters!!! It is being used as an occult tool. If I understand correctly, there are other divination tools and practices that are ancient. Ouija may or may not be based on these, I don't know. Or, Hasbro may have just patented their version of the board, maybe someone out there could shed some light on this.

My advice: don't play with occult tools. I have never heard anything good about someone's experience with one of those boards.

Okay, I am against fooling with these things, but if you have psychic ability, you might be able to use the board by yourself by using your index finger as the planchette. If it works it buys into the theory of some here that the spirit does indeed inhabit the body of the person or persons using the board. If you decide to try that, surround the board with a ring of salt. ask St. Michael to protect you from evil via a quick prayer, and then take a shower after you are finished asking your questions. I know that sounds strange but you are actually cleansing your aura. Try using a soap that can be found in a Botanica like Seven Powers. It comes in a bar like Dove. Just ask the question then clear your mind and place your index finger in the center of the board, touching the board lightly. Give it a couple of minutes. Your finger should move to the different letters. I can do this but I don't. For all the reasons cited here. And there is one particular poster on the thread who really is knowlegdable about this. r16.

r290, I'm going to take your post seriously and tell you that I doubt anyone hoodood the Maryjane. However, pot opens up the third eye chakra which is centered between the eyes at the base of the brow bone. If you want to develop your psychic abilities then meditating on the Third Eye is a good place to start. Anyone who smokes pot on a regular basis will attest to the fact that it is a great tool to help develop and strengthen the intuition.The Rastafarians use it as a sacrament and believe that to be true, too. You many have picked up on the fact that your "friends" play at being witches and use it for silly, manipulative games. Like casting lovespells or trying to curse an enemy. Perhaps you have convinced yourself that they have done something like that to you. Perhaps they WANTED you to believe that. Here's a solution. If the area you live in doesn't have a Wicca shop then go online. Try The Witches Voice. There are many reputable vendors who advertise on that site. Buy a light blue 7-day devotional candle in a glass holder. You can find them in most groceries. Buy Peace and Protection oil. A half-dram is enough. Buy some sage and do what r291 suggests. First do a dry brush of your body. Then take a hot shower. Apply some P&P oil to your third eye chakra, heart chakra, solar plexis, wrists and the soles of both feet. Just a little will do! Now, burn the sage and go from room to room making sure you sage the corners of each room. Negative energies collect in the corners. When you have done that you should feel a lightening of the atmosphere in your living space. Take the blue candle out of the holder, put a few drops of honey in the bottom of the glass holder, and one penny. Carve your initials in the candle. Also carve the words peace and protection in the candle. Then starting from the center of the candle, take a few drops of oil in your palm and oil the candle using one stroke down and one stroke up. Yes, just like a handjob:) When you have oiled the candle, replace it in the holder and light it. Use a lighter, not matches. Meditate on the flame and see yourself free from all the negativity that may be surrounding you and in your living space. You can even recite a prayer to St. Michael to protect you from evil and remove all negative entities, spirits and people from your person, living space and life. You don't have to be a Catholic for him to help you. You can let the candle burn continuously, or burn it for an hour each day for seven days. You will see a difference. From that day on choose your "friends" wisely. And don't smoke anymore pot. You obviously can't handle it:) Good luck.

I also have a question about Tarot cards.

The occult has always fascinated me. I was told late in life by my father that ( back in Europe) there is a witch in our family tree on his side. I discovered from my mother that this is definitely in her side of the family as well, back in Europe,too. She eventually taught me something, but I don't want to go into details here. She would NOT teach me more. I don't know why. I always wondered what she knew and why I wasn't taught more.

Although I am very curious, and very spiritual and deeply drawn to nature, I am also very, well, afraid. One night, all alone, I listened to something inside myself and did something, all by myself in a beautiful outdoor place to which I am drawn. I don't know if I created a new path for myself OR did I or could I possibly unleash things over which I have no control. I am leery to go further. That's not to say I don't want to, however. Just afraid, and with no teacher and no idea how to find one.
