It is not a game

Is this just for fun or a serious tool and if so is it dangerous?

I personally will never touch one again, since college.
My friends and I played with one in college and afterwards, each of us experienced bad things for a while.


It opens doors that are not always easy to close. It lets in things that are not always easy to get rid of.

The Ouija board is not a game.

Be careful. 😊

I haven't touched one since I was 12. For a few years, maybe from 10 to 12, my great grandmother played it with me (I believe she did know what it did and how to use it). To me, as a kid, it was a game.

When I was 12 my two cousins and I used it and were joking around with it, not following the rules I always followed. My cousin at one point flipped the board and ran out of the room. She wouldn't say why for quite a while and then said she had seen the reflection of something unpleasant in the mirror on the wall. I still to this day 16 years later don’t know exactly what she saw.

While I don’t think Ouija boards are bad, I do think they're an unregulated tool. Like a firearm with no safety lock you didn’t load yourself. Sure, maybe you'll pull the trigger and nothing will happen at all. Or maybe disaster will strike. It's a coin toss if you don’t know what you're doing.

I personally have never had a bad experience with a board. But I don’t use them anymore because I think there are better tools and more reliable methods to use for spirit communication.

I have to agree with ColeWayne, it's a tool, but the problem is, like anything else, there are rules, both spoken and unspoken and since the rules aren't laid out, those who use it who are not experienced or with someone who is not experienced, will open up a huge can of worms. Alot of Wiccans use the board to communicate with Spirit and very successful at it because they are usually trying to connect with a specific person, and they have a specific intention for the use. Like astral projection, if you let your body just wander, then you really don't know where your going, what the purpose of the journey is and what you will run into and bring back with you. These rules often apply with magic as well. It's a tool, but a novice who invokes an underworld God all for the sake is seeing if a spell will work without understanding the rules or no understanding of the entity you are evoking is, this is when you run into alot of problems.
The two biggest problems I see is people opening the board and wanting any spirit to speak, just for the sake of "speaking to the dead", this allows any entity to come through and you have no idea who your dealing with. The second is people not placing restrictions on the entitiy they are speaking to, like telling them they can only communicate through the board but can not attach themselves to anyone, or hurt anyone, ect. I'm not sure how ColeWayne's great grandmother used it or what her method was, but it worked for her because she was experienced. But for someone who isn't versed "in the art" I would suggest, like what you said Mystic, to stay far, far away! :)

I don't quite remember all of her methodology. This was 17 years ago or so. She always lit a white candle. I'll tell you the rules I remember. "State your business" - meaning tell the spirits what you want (i.e. "We want to speak to anyone who has lived in this house."). "Don't mention death" - meaning don’t ask things about their death (i.e. "How did you die?" or "What’s it like to be dead?"). She told me it was like asking a woman her age: some don’t mind, but others get upset, and more often than not it's better not to ask. "No making fun." - meaning don’t ask silly questions or tease (i.e. "What do farts smell like over there?"). Before we started we always had a quiet moment when we didn't talk. I don’t know if this was so she could concentrate or what. Based on my own experience connecting with spirits, she probably needed a minute to meditate or shield or what have you. Another rule was not to take your hands off the pointer once the session started and to always say goodbye and make sure the board said it back before you let go of the pointer. We also never blew out the candle until the sessions were done and the goodbyes happened.

Again, I was a kid, so I don't know how much of this was for show to make it seem more exciting. But that's what I remember. Don't take it as a guide for how to use a Ouija board. I'm by no means an expert.

ColeWayne? You said to never take your fingers off the pointer. I have 4 Ouija Boards and when I use one, I take my fingers off of it. Nothing has ever happened to ME. I guess I am just one of the lucky ones. Either that or I am just boring enough to where not even the spirits are interested in me. I guess that is a possibility. LOL

That was my great grandmother’s rule. I have no idea if it's legitimate. That was just how we did it.

Ah. :) Okay. :) Umm. Yeah. A lot of people say, never to take your fingers off of it. I think its because, the spirit can't enter the room, if you have your fingers on the planchette.

What experiences did you guys have that discourage you from using them? Do you see it as more dangerous than other forms of divination?

It is definitely not just a game, I stay well away from the Ouija board and anyone who plans to play with it. I see it as a dangerous way of connecting to the passed.. From what I've witnessed 9/10 times it always goes wrong. Stay away from it.

The reason why ouija can be dangerous is because it attracts earthbound spirits, this is sprits who have passed away, but have not passed though to the light yet, due to whatever.....so are still stuck on the earthplane but in spiritual form. These could be murderers, rapists, people who've been murdered or raped, people who've committed suicide, and even just normal deaths, but the spirits are lingering around as they are either scared to passover, still traumatized, or just refuse to as they want to be human again, or they want to mess with human forms......you don't know what your messing with.


So this is why you don't know what spirit your messing with when playing the ouija board, and that's why people have bad experiences with them.

I also don't believe that earthbound spirits can give you msgs anyway, they need to have crossed over to the light to have this knowledge and earthbounds don't'....so whatever your getting told would be nonsense anyway, and them just playing with you or scaring you on purpose.

If you want to connect with your deceased loved ones, there is other ways to do this.
