Whipping out a ouija board to hold an impromptu séance may seem like innocent fun (or just a load of B.S...).
But once in a while, consulting the tarots or casting a spell can actually have an effect — at least, according to these 12 people.
A recent Reddit thread asked people who've dabbled in the occult to share the weirdest things that happened after they did, and the responses are pretty entertaining. Take these answers with a magical grain of salt.
When I was in high school I had this sudden bout of nightmares and sleep paralysis. I wasn't going through a stressful time or anything and I don't freak out easily. I grew up watching 80's and 90's horror films and I normally sleep with total darkness and doors closed. These nightmares were super sudden and happened almost every night. It was constant sleep paralysis where my room was on fire, or there were bats thrashing around above me, or there was a figure hovering over my body and I couldn't breathe (the classic). Sometimes my speakers let out strange frequency type sounds even when it was switched off. Things would fall off my shelves etc. My mom would always find me sleeping on the couch the next morning with the tv on because it was so crazy.
