About the Ouija board
Talking – Ouija – boards are a form of channeling. Like all other forms of channeling – until you understand how to freely communicate with spirit – you must develop some basic skills.
The Ouija Board has been around since the time of the Roman Emperor Valens in the fourth century. It is also thought to have been used by the Greeks since before the time of Christ. It is a form of divination.
It was in 1891 that a patent was granted to Elijah J bond on the first modern Ouija Board. The following year the rights were purchased by William Fuld. In 1927 while on the top roof of his business supervising the replacement of the flag, William Fuld fell to his death. His family took over the business after that. In 1966 the Parker Brothers purchased the rights to the Ouija Board and shifted its manufacturing facilities to Salem, Massachusetts. The Ouija Board ended up outselling the game of Monopoly in its first full year at Salem. Over two million copies of the Ouija Board were shipped.
The layout of the Ouija Board seems to vary from country to country and production companies – as other developed and looked to improve their boards to bringing clear – more detailed – messages.
On the basic board – the letters are placed in a circle starting with the letter A next to the word yes and continuing around until the final letter Z ends up on the other side of the word Yes. The nine numbers from one to nine should be placed at the bottom next to the No.
Many people fee that Ouija Boards are dangerous to use. It depends on who uses them and the entities they attract. Dysfunctional people will attract dysfunctional entities and should never use a Ouija board or channel in any way.
Using a Ouija Board
It is often helpful to write down the questions you wish to ask before you begin. Prepare paper and pencil or tape recorder to record messages. You can use a camcorder if one is available. Using an infrared camcorder in a dimly lit room is a great way to see the energies of spirit.
Some people Ouija best alone – others like to Ouija with another person. Just make sure that the other person doing this with you isn’t thinking negatively.
Make sure your surroundings are comfortable and seemingly free of negative energies. Some people like to say a prayer over the board – or do some other ritual. In this case envision a protective white light of energy surrounding yourself, the board, those you are working with, and even the room. Ask your spirit guide to protect you and bring your spirits to channel who are on higher frequency. (Go by prayer further down page)
Be sure your board is clean and free of dust. Wipe gently with a clean soft cloth before you begin. You do not have to use candles or spooky lighting. It is best not to play music as you will also be focusing on your thoughts as you channel.
As spirits also love flowers – you might want to place some in a vase of water near the area in which you are using.
Spirits also love water – as they are part of the collective unconscious which is the flow of water.
Decide if you want to place the board on a table, upon the knees of two persons, or where it is most comfortable for those who will use it. Determine who wants to use the board and who wants to just observe.
Decide which person will ask the first question – and if there is to be an order to follow for asking questions. If everyone wants a turn at the board – it is best to go clockwise around the board with each person taking their turn. The time for each turn will vary with the spirit your answering.
People may be contacted by more than one spirit. Sometimes the spirits argue over who is to come through at a given time. Ask for one spirit at a time and always get a name before you begin.
Though spiritual energy enters through the left side of your body – most people will use their dominate hand to work the board. Which in most cases is the right.
**** If you have telekinetic abilities and feel you can move the indicator with your mind, then it is best not to use the board as you are guiding the answers.
You may also discover – as you work with the board – that you can subconsciously control the movement of the indicator – the same as suing a pendulum. If you are not sure – close your eyes and allow the indicator to move alone.
Some spirits move across the board quickly – while others go very slow. An excited spirit will move the planchette faster.
One of the first questions you might want to ask when you begin to work with your Ouija board is the names of your spirit guides. They are the ones who are here to protect and guide you. Everyone has at least one spirit guide.
You can start by asking for a message from spirit – or by asking spirit simple Yes or No questions to which you know the answer.
You should know the name of the spirit you are talking to. It should be your spirit guide. Another entity should come in when you get more comfortable with the Ouija board.
Always start with general questions. Save the personal questions for later when you are comfortable with the board.
Stick to subjects with positive energy when you begin to channel through Ouija.
Once an answer is given, you can ask for more information or clarification of the answer. But – You can only ask a question ONCE! Do not continue to ask the question over and over to seek the answer you want. Ask the question once and accept the answer given. Ask simple questions that can be verified in the next few days.
Questions can be about you personally – or universal or about any topic you think the spirit would like to converse about.
You may get thought forms and mental images as you talk to the spirit.
Can things manifest in your room? Yes!
Can things move in the room? Yes! It all depends on the spirit.
If you are a teenager – it may just be the telekinetic abilities of someone in the room. You can ask the spirit to stop and not to do spooky things like that.
When a new entity comes through – always get its name – who they came to talk to – and what they want to discuss.
A word may come through with all of the letters but in the wrong order. That is why it is best to have someone not using the board – writing the letters as they come through. A name may come through as ICMAHEL – meaning MICHAEL. Remember that not all spirits speak in your language. Some spirits have trouble spelling words or creating sentences.
You might get a “trapped spirit” that seeks help going to the light. If this is a matter of you releasing this spirit because you have an emotional like to it – you must ‘set the spirit free’ and forgive whatever it wishes you to forgive it from the time you knew it in the third world dimension. Many spirits are trapped here and will guide you to a Ouija board to tell you to release them. To do this – calm the spirit down – call your spirit guide – and ask them to guide the spirit to the next level of their experience. If they want you to help them with something so they can cross over – tell them that you are not skilled enough to do this – then send it away. If it will not leave – stop the board for the day and wait a few days before trying again.
If spirits ask you to do weird things – again stop using the board. Anything negative being written on the board means you must put the board away for that session whether you want to or not. The entity should leave by your next session.
Do not ask spirits to bring you things you want but would not otherwise have. All spirits have boundaries. You must find out the limitations of the spirit you are talking to.
Never ask spirits to do harm to others.
Never use the board to control others – or have power over them.
**** Do not let others use your board when you are not using it. Keep the board in a special place. Do not get addicted to the board.
**** Using a Ouija board is not a channeling ‘medium’ for everyone. Some people get it immediately – while others never get the hang of it. This seems to have no bearing on whether one is psychic or not. Many psychics can’t work a Ouija board.
With experience you can learn to channel your deceased loved ones and entities from other realms. Some days the board may work for you. Other days you many get no response. Be patient – and always feel comfortable with the spirit – or do not Ouija anymore.
What I have learned from using Ouija board and these are very good to do and learn. Make sure that you bless the Ouija board, planchette, white tea light candle and one bigger white candle. Bless yourself and all that will be involved in the Ouija session. Place the tea light candles around all of you so that you are within a circle of the tea light candles. These will protect all that are within them. Place the bigger candle on the table. Before you begin say a prayer of protection and ask God to only allow the positive energy in an to keep all negative and evil entities and energies out.
When you are calling upon a loved one, ask a questin that is only known between the 2 of you and do not say the answer in your head.
If someone or something crosses over the tea lights and if they blow out, right away end the session by saying “we are ending this session right now, go rest in peace and as you are saying good bye, bring the planchette down to where it says good bye. When this happens it will bring in evil or negative sources that you do not want to deal with and it si best to end it right away. The same goes for when you are asking a question and you don’t feel right and the planchette is going crazy on the board and the ‘spirit” is being rude, mean or joking in a not a nice way, end it quick right there by doing what I have said above. When you end the session always say Please rest in peace and Good Bye by placing the planchette on the Good Bye.
It also not good to over use the Ouija board. Only use it and I mean only use it when necessary. Keep the Ouija board in a safe place and place a blessed medal in it right on top of it.
If you do not know how to use the Ouija board or if the other person does not know how please do not use it. If you or the other person has any fear of it do not use it!
Yes the Ouija board is real and it is a portal for those who are evil and negative to enter through if it I not use correctly!
A Prayer to go by
Always say a prayer…..
Many of you have e-mailed me about what one should say when encountering a dark spirit or some unwanted and pestering entity. A very powerful way is to say an introductory and releasing prayer to protect yourself from evil influences which might want to linger and hang around even after you ended the session and packed the board away.
Depending on your faith and belief preferences you can of course customize the following prayer accordingly.
“In the name of GOD, Jesus Christ, The Great Brotherhood of Light, the ArchAngels Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, Uriel and Ariel, please protect us from the forces of Evil during this session. Let there be nothing but Light surrounding this Board and its participants and let us only communicate with Powers and Entities of The Light. Protect us, protect this house, the people in this house and let there only be Light and nothing but Light. AMEN!"
“Thank you for the wisdom and insight you have granted us. Thank you, Oh Lord for answer our questions through the beings and Angels of the Light. Protect this house and the people who have been her during our stay in your Realm. In the name of The Light we thank you! AMEN!"
Other steps to take into consideration before using the Ouija Board.
Nerver use it or play with it alone.
Never let the spirits count down through the numbers or go through the alphabet as they can get out of the board this way.
If the planchette goes to the four corners of the board it means that yu have contacted an evil spirit.
If the planchette falls from a Ouija board, a spirit will get loose.
If the planchette repeatedly makes a figure eight, it means that an evil spirit is in control of the board.
If you should get an evil spirit, quickly turn the planchette upside soen and use it that way. (I have never heard of this and would not continue the session)
The board must be "closed proplerly or evil spirits will remain behind to haunt the operator.
Never use the Ouiga when you are ill or in a weaked condition since this may make you vulnerable to possession.
The spirit of the Ouija board creates "wins" for the user, causeing him to become more an more dependent on the board. Additction follows. Thi is called "progressive entrapment."
Evil spirits cantacted through the Ouija board will try to win your confidence with false flattery and lies.
Always be respectful and never upset the spirits.
Never use the Ouija in a grave yard or plac where a terrible death has occurred or you will bring forth malevolent entities.
Sometimes an evil spirit can permanently "inhabit" a board. When this happens, no other spirits will be able to use it.
Ouija boards that are disposed of improperly, came back to haunt the owner.
If you place a pure silver coin on the board, no evil spirit will be able to come through.
NEVER leave the planchette on the board if you are not using it.
