Today it's a paranormal communication device currently marketed and sold by Hasbro as a board game. Historically, it's a method for talking with the dead. Where does this come from? The ancient Chinese as a form of automatic writing starting over 900 years ago.
The modern Ouija uses a board with letters to spell out words, Yes/No for direct questions and even numbers. It uses a Planchette device (the pointer shaped like an upside-down heart) to communicate.
The modern board also has a dark reputation linked with possession, violence and even death. How much of that is true and how much is paranoia?
Some of that paranoia started with the movie The Exorcist: the story of a young girl being possessed by a demon. The movie shows the possession starting with the girl using a Ouija alone. The movie itself was fiction, but is based on a true story.
What happened in The Exorcist is not true, but the Ouija is not without danger, such as...
It's a focal point of energy from a group of people. This creates a buildup, all of which is not nice and positive that can build up and take over a session. Whether from the ghosts who carry it, like chains behind Jacob Marley in A Christmas Carol, or from a person in the group who had a stressful day.
But what is clear, the Ouija Board is not a tool of the devil, but instead a communication device that has it's roots in the most ancient methods of energy manipulation, giving us a better understanding of the "other side".
These are the top 3 rules that have protected me over the years. They encompass many different factors and are the root safe communication.
What about Rule #4 - Never use the Ouija Board alone? There is not true for two reasons...
First, people who are not psychic (like most of us) wouldn't have enough energy to create a session when alone. Psychics with high energy are also able to control it. Second, the best communication, and the reason the Ouija was invented, is for the combined energy of a group. Without the group, little to nothing will ever happen.
Full instructions featuring setup, team roles and potential dangers are available in our Booklet
YOUR OUIJA TEAM
Gather 3 to 5 people. The sole purpose of this divination method is to combine multiple people to create psychic energy.
Roles are to be assigned to the participants...
The ghosts being summoned are working through your team's energy. Focus is important. If one person is not focused and calm, then the message(s) could be slow and confusing. Focus on the energy that's moving the Planchette and nothing else.
HOW TO START COMMUNICATION
WHO ARE YOU SPIRIT?
Once the Planchette is moving, here are some things you could ask...
Or anything else you think might be important. A Ouija Board session is like a great conversation. Pretend to be Larry King or George Stroumboulopoulos, but with dead people.
CLOSING THE BOARD
Remember Rule #2, always say Goodbye!
What happens if you fail to close the door? Something negative might come through. Hopefully you never know the feeling of drawing a strong negative energy into your space.
A perfect example is what happened to me at the old James Street haunted shop in Hamilton.
JAMES STREET SHOP EXPERIENCE
There were three of us in the old shop on James Street South in Hamilton when we decided to contact the dead. Sitting at a small round table in the middle of the shop floor with our homemade Ouija Board, we set out to contact the resident ghost.
Her name was Elizabeth, and she made herself known to multiple psychics. They said she didnít like us in her home and was causing negative energy to drive us away.
We wanted to learn more and knew the Ouija Board was our best bet.
The old woman eventually came through. We asked, "Do you want us to leave?", and the planchette stopped. The board didn't respond, however the room did.
We started feeling very strange, like the air was heavy and hard to breath. Something was watching us from the empty psychic parlour, from the backroom, and in every dark corner.
The feeling of dread was so uncomfortable we decided to end the session by forcing the still Planchette to 'Goodbye' and quickly leaving the shop.
The next day the shop felt normal again.
If this happens to you...
The best method is to be proactive. If a spirit is getting angry or insulting (swearing or threatening) Ö END THE SESSION.
Saying goodbye before the negative spirit gets up a head of steam will usually work.
