My Freaky Spirit Board Story

For some odd reason, last year I was addicted to the idea of making a spirit board. So I learned how to do wood burning after a friend bought me a wood burner. I bought all this irregular wood (it’s cheaper) along with some other wood burning accessories.

I printed out the pattern that I wanted to make it with and traced it all out on the wood then I burned it on. I cut a planchette from a cheap piece of wood that I bought from Wal-Mart and found that it was too big for my board so I cut it down to half its size.

When everything was cut and everything was burned I was ready to put lacquer on it all. The odd thing is, the planchette was missing. I searched all over my bedroom, all over the tool shed, all over the back yard. I could not find it anywhere.

At first I thought maybe I should just make a new one but then I started thinking that perhaps it’s gone for a reason. If I made a new one who knows what might happen. Is it gone because someone took it? And when I say someone I don’t mean a living person, I mean a spirit who doesn’t want me to use the Spirit Board.

So, I never made another planchette and the board sits in the same spot untouched collecting dust.

I would still like to use it some day and I guess I’m waiting for the planchette to return to me, giving me permission to use it. Does that sound silly? I mean, I could just make another one or I could use a shot glass if I really wanted to use it.

People are always saying that you are opening a portal by using one of these and I don’t know if that is true or not. People are always saying these are evil but I think that all depends on who is using it and how they are using it. I don’t believe in good or evil, I just believe there are ghosts out there and I want to communicate with them.

The reason I haven’t used it yet is just in case there is a possibility that someone may be right and I was wrong. I don’t want to end up bringing some bad juju in my house ya know?

It’s been over a year now and Halloween is coming which is when you would use one of these but I’m still not sure I should even though I want to.

Ghostly Dreams

ghostI’ve been watching all these ghost videos on YouTube that it has entered my dreams lol.

The one thing that I’ve learned from watching Ghost Hunters on the SyFy (formerly Sci-Fi) channel is that they can’t hurt you.  Well, they kinda can because Jason has gotten scratches and they show people with scratches on their back that they couldn’t have possibly done to themselves.  And there was that one Halloween episode where Grant was being held back and you could see the collar of his jacket being tugged on.  But is that really hurting?

The videos on YouTube that I’ve been watching have been that stupid “Pantry Ghost” video where you can see hands and a face through the glass but someone has proven that it is a fake by showing you how they do it.  So I don’t believe in that one.  This same person has also shot video of himself playing hide n’ seek with his daughter and at the very end you see what appears to be a ghostly apparition in the corner by the dresser.  Well, that could’ve easily been faked using the same techniques as the pantry video.  They also made a video of going into a room and seeing a ghost girl standing up and then another where he opens the board to theattic and he sees a ghost girl turning around to see the camera.  Those are all fake because you cannot see through the ghost, it’s a solid apparition.

I’ve actually had encounters with “ghosts” in my bedroom.  Feeling a cat jump up on the bed and walk around.  That happens sometimes but I’ve accepted that it’s a kitty cat ghost, it can’t hurt me so it doesn’t frighten me in the least.  And one night, this only happened once, I was laying in bed and I felt what seemed like 4 cats on the bed but then I felt as though someone just sat down on the edge of the bed.  The edge of the bed felt like it was pressed down.  You could feel someone sitting.  I didn’t move because I didn’t want to scare it, it didn’t scare me.  I even said hello to it.  I eventually fell asleep.

But last night I had this dream that there was this ghost in the house and it was stalking me.  I went to the front door and there was a piece of furniture sitting in front of the door and it was keeping me in the house.  But I can’t put any stock into that dream because some how our toy chihuahua dog “Flower” duplicated so I had 2 “flowers” lol.

It still scared me, I was frightened and basically just scared out of my mind.  But I know that it was just a dream, they can’t hurt me.  I have to just keep saying and thinking that they cannot hurt me.

I saw “ghosts” as a kid, so did my older sister, my mother told me that she sees them too and that if I feel scared then perhaps it’s not good, it’s “evil” and to say the “lords prayer”.  Well, personally I don’t believe in evil as in hell or the devil.  I do believe in evil as in people who are evil such as those who have murdered other people and laughed about it and don’t regret it or apologize for it.  So I guess if a ghost can be good as people can be good then a ghost can be evil as people can be evil.  It works both ways.

I think the only way to stop those dreams is to stop watching YouTube ghost videos that try to scare you lol.

Hump Day or Ghost Day

When I was in school Wednesday was hump day.  Well now as a grown up and as an avid Sci-Fi (now SyFy) channel watcher, Wednesday is Ghost day.

Today it’s not just Ghost Hunters though, from 8am to 4pm SyFy channel is airing Scariest Places on Earth. Then 4pm is Lost, 5pm is Stargate Atlantis, 6pm is Stargate SG-1 then from 7-11 is Ghost Hunters.  Well, they are adding Ghost Hunters but it’s mainly Ghost Hunters International.

I’m not too crazy about Scariest Places on Earth because I’m sure those are all rigged up because those people are just regular people who are spooked for no reason so they won’t know if there is a real ghost or if it’s string tied to a rocking chair and being pulled via remote control.  Plus they are always doing these rituals where they have to call the ghosts to wake them up.  Bullshit!  Also the guy at the beginning who tries to scare them by telling them just how haunted the house or mansion is.  Shenanigans!

I like Ghost Hunters because they don’t scream (Donna) or run (Brian).  They mostly stick around if something happens because they want to find it.  They usually run toward the activity instead of running away from it because they want to debunk it.  They have actually found speakers in this one place so they knew it was shenanigans.  And they also found shenanigans on the queen mary when someone pulled the covers and paused the tape.

What am I doing sitting here blogging?  I’m MISSING it!

Edit: What are the odds that I would blog about something this morning at 7:53am and it happens later in the day?  I said in this post:

“They have actually found speakers in this one place so they knew it was shenanigans.”

And that episode is on.  I’m watching the East coast SyFyHD channel so I’m seeing it 3 hours before it really should air in CA so it’s the 8pm episode called “Widows Watch”.  Jay and Grant just found the speaker in the ceiling of the ladies room, when you open the door there is a sensor that activates the speakers and there is also a mirror with a face behind it that illuminates when someone is near it so when you are looking at yourself you see another face over your own.

I had no idea that episode would be on when I posted that this morning lol.  I must have ESPN or something.

Lego Batman Nominated For Award

It’s not the kind of award.  This is a “TOADY” which means it’s the worst toy of the year.

Lego Batman nominated for award for toys inappropriate for children

Personally, I like this game.  I think that it’s a pretty cool game.  But I like all the Lego games because I liked Lego when I was a kid.  I would play for hours building stuff then taking them apart and starting over again making something else.

The claim is that it promotes violence and sexuality to children.  LMAO are you kidding me?  WHAT THE F?  Uh, ok, what about World of Warcraft?  EverQuest?  You have got to be kidding me.  There is no sexuality in Lego Batman.  You can’t play a video game without violence.  Even Pac-Man ate the ghosts and the ghosts would kill him.  Are you going to tell me that Pac-Man promotes violence towards ghosts?

I have the Lego Star Wars, Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Batman games and they are all good games and I would personally let my children play with them.  This is absolutely ridiculous that they are doing this.

One of the claims is that when this game was being advertised, McDonald’s was selling Happy Meals with a lego batman character as the toy.  So freakin what!  They are saying that this is promoting violence, sexuality and bad health.  Excuse me?  You don’t have to get soda in the happy meal, you don’t have to get fries but instead they offer apple slices.  Basically, you don’t even have to get the meal for your kid, just go to McDonald’s, buy the happy meal, eat the burger and fries and drink the little tiny soda then give your kid the toy, believe me, he/she won’t even know the difference because all they want is the toy.

McDonald’s has teamed up with Disney since the 80’s that I know of to sell Disney related toys to children in their happy meals.  I used to work there so I would know first hand.  Every time there was a Disney movie out they would make toys to go in the happy meals.  This is not new and exclusive to Lego Batman.

I say to all the people who are so worried about this… get a freakin life.  Worry about the war, about our economy.  Pick your battles.

Ghost Hunters

Wow, tonight’s Ghost Hunter’s episode was really good. They caught 2 EVP’s that were really good. Well 3 actually but one of them wasn’t speaking English, you couldn’t understand what he was saying. The woman who owned the building said it sounds like Polish to her. The other voices which was in the attic sounded like he was saying “We want” but they think it was saying “What do you want?” which makes a lot more sense. I think he was saying what do you really fast so it sounded like we. Then Tango was up in the attic and he was basically cussing the ghost out and you could hear when Tango took a breath a voice that said “Leave me alone”. Awesome.

I’ve always believed in ghosts no matter what people say back to me. When I was a kid I used to see my grandmother Mimi or so I thought it might be her. I don’t know for sure what it was. And ever since we’ve been in Bakersfield I’ve been feeling what seems to be a cat jumping up on either the couch and my bed. I’m not afraid of a cat ghost because I know that cats are innocent creatures and they don’t have any evil inside them. Dogs are different though. Take Cujo for example hehe.
