Ottawa Ghosts: Ouija Board Opens Gateway

Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Jackie on July 30, 2014:

“We have a family home on the outside of Ottawa in a little town named Osgoode. A long time ago when I was 12 we had this stupid idea to use a ouija board. They sell it at Toys R Us, but seriously it’s not a game. Plus the fact that we did contact with a ghost named Nancy that had a car accident, and we did test how it feels to move the glass. And when its pretty much moving itself this happened! Weird thing is that it started to happen after that day, and I don’t think it was a ghost.

Ever since then I was sleeping on the couch facing the back of the couch. One night I woke up very cold and felt someone behind me playing with my hair. I was frozen, I could not move for a good minute. Terrified, I finally broke free and ran to my mother’s room.

A few months later we started seeing a person in the corner of our eye standing at the hall way where the kitchen meets the living room. Everyone saw this at one point, but once you turn your head nothing was there.

The next year, I had my mattress on the ground in my mother’s room. I was just sleeping like always then all of a sudden my bed started convulsing like crazy then stopped, then started again then stopped then started one more time. If you press your thumb down on your arm and slowly slide it down to the palm of your hand, I felt that exact feeling going down my legs down to my feet. I jumped right in my mother’s bed … trying to sleep I could hear noises downstairs. Not to mention the little things that would disappear and reappear.

A month later I’m lying in my bed, then suddenly it felt warm and safe. My bed went down like someone sat down but no one was there. And it felt like someone was stroking my hair gently. I actually wasn’t scared. It reminded me of my grandpa that has passed.

Things started to calm down for a while. I moved out to many places. I’m 24 now with a baby and thought it had calmed down.

I live in a duplex in Brockville and a few days after being there I was getting up and ready to leave at 5 am. Everyone was sleeping. I was making a sandwich and as clear as day someone whispered my name directly in my ear which FREAKED ME OUT. So I just left.

Later that day on my drive home I was on the phone with my sister, windows up and radio off she randomly asked “who’s with you?” I said no one she then said ” I have been hearing someone trying to talk to you this entire conversation”.

Not to talk about weird noises in the kitchen.

Then it gets weirder, we were all in bed sleeping and my 15 month-old was in her crib in her room. Around 12 am my boyfriend wakes up freaking out “where’s Tessa??” I said “she’s sleeping, go back to bed”. Then I SWEAR at 1:30 I woke up to footsteps. Slowly opening my eyes I see the dog on the bed and my boyfriend beside me. I fully open them and I see a full shadow (like someone standing in the dark) of a kid exactly Tessa’s size look at me then run out of the room …. I run to Tessa’s room and she was fast asleep.

The next day I saged the entire house and haven’t had any incidents yet, and hopefully never will again …”

Little Creatures Climbing My Walls: Brampton Ghosts


Location: Brampton, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Jay on April 24, 2014:

“I used to live near the new Brampton hospital before it was built. I was about to go to sleep one night when I could hear my doorknob turning. I was the only one home that night. I immediately called out “Mom?!” But I got no answer. The door slowly opened and I saw someone standing at my door. I immediately froze. I couldnt speak or move. The figure was very pale, and I couldn’t make out any features. The figure stared at me for what felt like a century to me, then slowly closed the door. I couldn’t sleep or move until the sun came up.

The next few days me and my friend stupidly started playing the Ouija board one night. I don’t believe in it but my friend did. I was sceptic she was moving the piece. It said it was her aunt and that there will be a birth of a baby coming up and blah blah blah.. It seems innocent but ever since that day I noticed more odd things happening. Our rocking chair downstairs always rocked at night when no one was around. I brought a kitten home and when I woke up she was dead with a look of terror and her mouth open. I was terrified.

A year later I was starting to question my own sanity. I changed. My outlook on life was getting darker and I stayed in my room all day. I finally tried commit suicide. I took sleeping pills and while going in and out of consciousness I saw little creatures climbing my walls. They looked like little gremlins but more sinister. I woke up in the hospital and was discharged a day later.

When I came home I felt like I needed to leave the house. We finally moved and I felt happy again. Something in that old house made me want to hurt myself. The house has been sold four times in the past 10 years. I’m not surprised.”

True Ghost Story: Ouija Board

Location: Red Deer, Alberta, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Chelsea on Jan 14, 2013:

“I lived in my old house for 10 years with little things happening here and there, nothing seriously scary. Books would fall off the shelf at 3 am every night, or you would hear footsteps from the upper level when you were in the basement. But still nothing too creepy.

One day we were cleaning when my mother informed me that we had a Ouija board in our closet that I had never knew about. Things were fine until my friends started playing with it. It started with things moving across the room. The worst experience I can recall was being woken one morning from a dead sleep by a man screaming in my face. I ended up performing my own little “ritual” telling it to leave me alone and that it wasn’t welcome. After that it left me alone but my friends became targets.

I’ve since moved but I have a feeling it followed me. The last thing that’s happened was me hearing someone in my empty bathtub moving around. I finally got the courage to look behind the curtain but of course nothing was there. Things still happen all the time, but none as scary as the screaming man or the bathtub.”

True Ghost Story: Ouija Board Haunting

Location: Windsor, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Connor on July 8, 2012:

“Ok, this story is 100% true. My father and me are both mediums, which means we can talk to the dead. So I requested to explore my new-found power and talk to some dead folks by playing with a Ouija board. It was fun but after this happened my father told me to burn it or else something bad could happen. So that’s what I did. I burned it over the toilet but not all of it was burned. And after that I’ve been seeing a women in faded clothing from that night on. I keep seeing her. And to this day weird stuff happens all the time, like doors opening and SLAMMING shut, my dog flips out. In the middle of the night I feel she’s getting closer to me but I have blessed holy items from the holy lands always on me, so I think I’m safe. I’m still having these experiences on a daily basis. Thanks for reading.”

True Ghost Story: All Of The Dishes Were Moved

Location: Orillia, OntarioCanada

The following report was sent into our website by Codi on July 10, 2011:

“My great grandfather passed away in the kitchen of my grandparents’ house (this is important later), and his name is Joseph. So I was with my grandma when I was younger and she owns a Ouija board. We were playing with it and she just decided she would try to summon my great-grandfather. So she yelled out “if you are here dad then please show us.” We waited for about ten minutes, and nothing happened. So my grandma went into the kitchen and I stayed with my eyes fixed on the Ouija board. Then I saw something that really surprised me. The little pointer thing moved, I screamed for my grandma. She came out and watched, keeping track of what it spelt. She told me it was nothing, but later I overheard her telling my mom that it spelt out “Joseph”.

Another paranormal thing is that I was babysitting in my grandparents’ neighbour’s house. They have little grandchildren. Anyways, I was cooking dinner and the kids were playing in the living room. I went out to check on them and when I went back in all of the dishes were moved. I just kept going and tried not to seem scared. Then their “Tickle Me Elmo Doll” had run out of batteries so I took the old ones out and when I came back it was playing the noise and moving. It freaked me out so much I went back to my grandparents’ house. When I was in their house I looked out the window and saw a man in the house the little kids lived in even though no one was home. I have not figured this out yet, but it scares me every time I baby sit them.”

Halifax Ghosts: Ouija Board

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Sydney on Feb 27, 2011:

“So my sister and I were visiting my grand-parents house a couple years back. Our grand-father had died about 6 months before this occurred. So we were helping my grandma clean out his stuff from the basement. He was a huge collector, saving things from around the world and had to keep everything. While exploring the packed basement we managed to come across a Ouija Board. Not knowing exactly what it was at the time, we took it upstairs and set it on the kitchen table. My older sister told me that we were supposed to ask it questions. We asked it stupid questions like who are we gonna marry or are we going to have chocolate for dessert. Soon our grandma caught us using this game and told us it was a way to communicate with spirits. She told us to not play with it, but we didn’t listen. After we asked it questions like “are spirits really real?” And stuff like that. Suddenly, the tv started flickering on and off as cupboards banged back and fourth, and lights went out. We could feel a quick breeze from behind us and footsteps but they soon vanished as grandma came up with a box of grandpa’s belongings. The second she step foot on the main level, everything was fine. We still don’t know what happened that day, but it still gives us chills to think about.”
