In January 2018 we received an email from a family who believed that they were being tormented by a demon in the SF Bay Area after playing with an Ouija Board. In the following months, we were able to document severe demonic activity. As a result, the family would receive an exorcism to clear the demonic infestation that was affecting them.

History – Bay Area Demonic Haunting?
With any paranormal case with claims of a demonic haunting, it is always important to look into the history of the home. The home was located in the San Francisco Bay Area, and was built in 1940. The home had no history of deaths nor did it have a history of any tragic events that our research team could find.
The family members had no prior paranormal experiences, until one night when they played with the Ouija Board. The family had never played with the Ouija Board before but they had purchased one at a local antique store because they were curious. In the first session that they played one night, they remembered getting the words MAMA over and over again on the board. They thought it was extremely strange, at the time so they stopped the session and tried again the following night. The following night they again picked up “MAMA” again on the board.
Weeks passed then they slowly started noticing strange things happening in their home. Objects would go missing, such as keys, wallets, and family photos, which would result in fights. Disembodied voices would be heard at all hours of the night. Nightmares would disturb the family’s sleep patterns. As a result, these events started an endless cycle of depression, which would eventually lead to a failed suicide attempt.
Our investigation team wondered if the Ouija board was the catalyst for the haunting. Was the Ouija board responsible for opening a portal that allowed the “MAMA” entity to enter and attack the family?
After numerous paranormal investigations, we were able to document severe paranormal activity. The paranormal activity reached a high point early in February 2018 with a sewing board being thrown across the room by the poltergeist.
With the family in dire need of help, we contacted numerous priests, however, we felt that exorcist, Bishop James Cloud was the best fit to assist with cleansing the home and family of the demonic activity that had infested their home.
The exorcism took place in their SF Bay Area home, and last for about 4 hours. Bishop James Cloud blessed every area of the house first with incense (palo santo), and holy water to drive the demon away.
During the exorcism, there were a couple of strange events happened. One of the events that affected me personally was when I inexplicably felt flushed with heat. It felt as if something had entered in me, and at one point I felt like I wanted to faint.
From the beginning to the very end of the exorcism which last over 4 hours, there were a number of strange growls and sounds, that I cannot explain. Towards the end of the exorcism, there was another strange growl.
The growl sounded extremely dark and demonic. At the time of the growl, I was questioning another investigator about whether or not the exorcism ritual worked, shortly after that a loud growl is heard. Later that night I took the Ouija Board that was used in the home and conducted a binding ritual to bind any residual energy to the board.
Did the Exorcism work?
[[update 1/10/2019]] A few months ago I had spoken to the homeowner to see if she was still experiencing any lingering effects from the haunting. She had told me that shortly after we had left she had felt a positive change in their house, and that no paranormal events had taken place in their home since then. She no longer feels any signs of depression, and she and her family are able to enjoy their lives.
