The Ouija Board

The Ouija board was invented by one Elijah Bond in the late 1800’s during the Victorian era. The Victorian age was a high time for mediumship and spirit contact, many homes doubled as spiritual salons and most peoples weekends consisted of gathering around tables in a dark room anxiously waiting to hear what the other side had to say. Naturally, there were many spiritual inventions that were created during this such as the psychomanteum and the euphonia, however, the Ouija board is the invention that seems to have become the most popular.

Is Ouija negative?

Even the most seasoned Witch can begin to wiggle in their seat when the topic of spirit boards is mentioned. Some people believe that the boards are neutral and harmless while others are convinced that they directly portal into the lower astral attracting negative entities. This problem needs to be solved once and for all, what is correct?

Technically, the Ouija board is not purely a negative tool. Experiences with spirit boards, like all divination tools, are rooted in the participants level of consciousness and beliefs. Divination tools only augment the feelings and beliefs we have inside of us; the spirit world is a much more raw intense energy then the 3d world. It is not that people should not use spirit boards, it is that people should not use them in ignorance.

People are not initiated

The vast majority of people who use talking boards use them with no proper preparation ritual, thus their consciousness is not prepared. Think teenage sleepovers after watching a scary movies (fear and paranoia is high), parties, or even people who believe they are spiritual but are not particularly aware of the nuances of this type of practice. You wouldn’t expect yourself to run a 10k marathon after being a couch potato for most of your life, in turn, one should not expect to navigate higher dimensions effortlessly with no education or training. Plain and simple, people dive into inter-dimensional practices without the proper understanding or experience. This is augmented by the fact that Ouija has been marketed as a game, pink barbie planchette included!

Ouija as a portal

Now that we have discussed the dynamics of this type of divination, I do have to give points to the people who have had negative experiences. You know, the ones who threw their board away only to have it return, tried unsuccessfully to burn it, had it move by itself etc. They are not wrong in their assumption that it is the board itself that is tainted. While it is true that spirit boards themselves are neutral and can be used with the correct protocol, Ouija boards are very difficult, in particular, to do this with. Why? Well, the wording “Ouija” is a portal. Why have these words at the centre of every board? Even the home-made boards often still use the branding. In the esoteric world thoughts and emotions have a great deal of weight and power, when they are strung together in what is called ‘a spell’ they unify thought, emotion, spirit and even our bodies into a particular line of reality. This is also called entrainment or even ‘portalling’. Entrainment of all our subtle and physical bodies is the beginning of magick, and in this case “Ouija”, is the the entraining force.

What this does is channel our energy into the “Ouija” portal that sits symbolically where the third eye sits in the human head. All beings wishing to connect must pass through the portal; even our own consciousness passes through the Ouija portal. Over time with so many people using the board incorrectly the portal has become strongly rooted in the lower realms. This means that upon use there is a higher probability that you have a negative encounter, your energy would have to be developed enough, and strong enough, that you were not as susceptible to lower astral attachment. Just like if you buy a house that has had dark rituals in it, or a lot of pain and negativity, you will likely experience those remnants as you live in the home. This is the same concept — energy sticks.

In conclusion, as the board can be used as a tool it cannot be considered entirely negative. However, due to the specific Ouija portal that has been developed, the likelihood of you having a negative encounter is quite high. For this reason it is best to connect with your spirit in other ways such as Tarot or oracle cards, or simply by prayer and meditation. If you do choose to use a Ouija board take time to align your energy very strongly with your heart and core light, develop inner boundaries and protection techniques. If you wish to project your consciousness into the higher dimensions, educate yourself about what exactly you are doing!

  1. That makes sense. I’ve just recently found you, and already learning so much. Would a black mirror that was made by yourself be safer? What are your thoughts on scrying? I made a black mirror, haven’t used it yet, because I’m not sure who I’ll be connecting with….and don’t want any negative experiences. Thank you so much.

  2. The topic of possession is sometimes avoided in spiritual discussions I would give a real life example of something that occurred very recently and ended in horrific tragedy for the person involved but text here seems to be limited in its length. My partner and I both work in the field of mental health from a spiritual perspective and so we are aware that possession by dark entities is a very real phenomenon. Most of the problems we see occur because of insufficient knowledge and training, as well as curiosity and misinformation on the internet regarding opening, expanding and elevating consciousness. It requires the utmost discernment guided by spiritual wisdom which can only be learned through due diligence. There are no shortcuts. So I am offering this as a caution: where we put our attention is what becomes our reality. Ascension is a beautiful process and life’s greatest adventure, but you would not climb Mt Everest without adequate preparation and knowledge, would you?

  3. I think what reinforces the spirit board attracting astral level beings is that it appeals to people new to the psychic world and they begin with feelings of fear and excitement. Kind of like telling ghost stories around a camp fire. They don’t understand the rules of energetic realities, so the vibration created is of fear and calls in beings that thrive on energy of fear. It seems as though the beings attracted in, also are quite capable of attaching to the seeker and continue to create terror to feed on, making it more and difficult to break the attachment.

  4. I didn’t know anything about a Ouija boards and I apologize this is so long I’m brand-new tonight and this is something that you might want to hear. and believe it or not a Google app of all things I said a little prayer and that answered me like within 1 second and I communicated with it for a while he proclaimed each somebody he was not and never did nothing bad or anything like that but just taught me a lesson and he is spirit I met on this board is the one that told me to never touch it again he told me thatthey told me that they knew that I was going to try using the board. and then answer me right away and was there to protect me from anything bad from coming through. you shouldn’t things in between that I can explain is not enough time but for the last 3 years with writing and I can kind of tune into a few words tells me , not audibly it kind of just from automatic writing it was like I was being told her manipulating what to write so and I just started hearing him Lakeview reading your head when your automatic writing it’s like that very limited.and I thought from a different part of where I think other things. things are going to be okay his name is Chris and when he talks about himself he always uses the word we like we don’t want you to worry and he’s verydepressed person but that’s because I lost both my parents and I will set out to find them but as soon as I found somebody from the other side something in My Heart told me not to ever ask about them and I never have I never felt the need to because I was in love so much for my parents I had so.much love with them so much but I can honestly say when I did meet this spirit I was a mess that was on drugs I because it was drugs there was absolutely nobody there for me all my friends just totally disowned me but yet they drink all the time all the time but weekend. that there’s drugs that sometimes that if you wasn’t there for me to talk to I’m not sure what my life would be like or even if it would be here because I was so wteckless. This is no lie this. it seems like he was just a friend to me I mean I know there’s more than one because she always says of me but it’s Kris that has been there for me as a friend it’s all I can say he’s like my best friend.Has helped me kick the habit I’ve been sober for a long time he just seems to be somebody that just tells me things are going to be okay and not to worry.. it’s about limited to that unless I try to write but we laugh together all the time all day long when I’m here ignoring my husband’s working over the silliest things so childlike and laughs a lot at me in a good way we can have conversations that she laughing at things I can hear him say in a thougt ” we are laughing out loud. We joke around about everything my husband doesn’t know not really and I’ll show my camera on my phone or no matter whose phone I’m using picks up a different dimension all the time and I get Spirits in them I don’t show them to anybody because some of the pictures that are moving and I would not disrespect them until anybody. People that would be interested because they’re interested in the paranormal I would never ever show any of them people I respect the spirits I don’t know any of the people. I recognize two animals an inmate camera as plain as day. and I don’t feel any negative vibes whatsoever anything I feel better is this possible that he has had helped me? The last three years in my life he made it better just by listening to me telling me it’s going to be okay if he was somebody bad why would he try to make me feel better. It would be so easy to me. I’ve never been scared he’s never scared me I’ve never seen something unexpected cuz he knows that scares me. I don’t have bad dreams .I just want to know it is ever hear anything close to myexperiences? or if this is possible. couple of bad nights I had some conversations when I was using the board and then he had told me that he had to do that to show me that you cannot ever use them.because people lives have been ruined by them from Spirits that have not been truthful it has pretty much drove people crazy to the point where they couldn’t take it anymore .even know they couldn’t hurt them after death . But ruined lives.that’s pretty much what he told me never touch another one again in neutralize everyone you know not to I can write him an automatic writing tricho Christian and sometimes it’s confusing because you can’t. The eyes are crossed the keys he’s currently laughing at me right now I just heard it true as chuki be I know that most of my loved ones have passed on even though I’m young because they taking care of people older than me and I swear sometimes I can feel the love for my parentsthat maybe he is right maybe people are still praying for me over there maybe I m Lok because that’s what he tells me is it why is this happening to me . I said several times ,why me ?I’ve had nothing but sadness except at home cuz my parents were so lovingI was bullied all through school .he said because you are very loved that’s the answer I always get . Because in my childhood in school I have a hard time believing that something good could happen to me I want to accept this as good but as we all have doubt I am scared at the same time but there doesn’t seem like there’s anything to be afraid of please help me somebody…please give me your opinion on this please please I’ll just asked once if you could do that for me they are so more thing is she doesn’t seem to tell me anything that I’m not supposed to know that I never did know that us as humans being here that we’re not supposed to know he doesn’t tell me what it’s like when we pass .he doesn’t try to tell me things about anything in the future doesn’t try to tell me things that are going to happen.I guess now that I’m all better with the drugs and my life is on track I supposed to try and help people on both sides and I have no idea where to startI was told that won’t know when and that’s it otherwise it’s just the same old goofiness and. Could it be possible could be a spirit guy I know we have more than one do you think that’s why he always says “we” he knows he reached my motion he knows that my worst fear is that I’m being tricked I don’t feel it at all it’s just the way my life has gone. If I could just believe him I could be so happy
