Pandora asked what it means when the planchette moves in a figure 8 (or infinity) pattern.

I have heard that this is a common way for a spirit to express laughter.

At risk of sounding like a broken record, I want to say what a terrible idea it would be to use that board! I have NEVER met someone who has had a good experience with Ouija boards. While some may think nothing happened during the session... Something ALWAYS happens, it just may take a bit to realize it.

I too have gone to Cassadega a few times. If you really want answers to who is around you, ask one of them there. Personally, I use Rev. Ben and he's helped me a lot and has also told me who's watching over me.

My best advice to you about the board is to burn it!
Also, think about this. You say Melinda is not happy with the guests you already have visiting, how do you think she'll handle it if you let something worse loose?

Seriously... Destroy it and don't use it. There are other, safer, ways to contact the other side.
Let us know what happens:)

Fact is the Ouija tends to bring through the kind of spirit you don't want around when used by amateurs and without adequate protectionth... They tend to be the earthbound who are not necessarily evil but not nice... Please follow the advice of the others and don't use it... I have several stories I could tell about nasty ouija experiences I've heard about so please avoid at all costs...

Please don't use the Ouija without having an experienced Medium with you. Could you get your boyfriends mother to get hers to come along? I've always wanted to use one too. My mother's friend John was at a house party one night and they started playing with one thinking it was a great laugh but soon they were sorry they did anything because something came into the room and they couldn't get it out. They didn't know what to do. My mom said he was 'terrifed' even though there was like 20 people there.

My friend Maria did one too with her sister one night in their kitchen when their house was empty. They left the kitchen after nothing seemed to happen but when they returned she told me one of the drawers was open and there was a knief on the kitchen table!

If you do go ahead with it then please be careful and report back and let us know what happend!

I am so happy that AshleyHalliwell could give you the info that you were seeking. You said it's people like her that are non bias and that you appreciate. Well, it's people like us who are going to tell you the truth and not sugar coat anything with you. Like I said before, you believe who you want to believe, but make sure you get her phone# and contact information so she can assist you with everything that you are getting ready to open yourself up to. I'm sorry, I don't go through life sugar coating anything, I strictly tell it like it is, If you can't handle the truth, that's on you. I never thought you were a 14 year old. I assumed from the start that you were an adult. I just don't know why you needed our advise when you were going to do what you wanted to do anyway.
I pray you are enlightened, enriched, filled with love and many, many blessing on your board.

God bless you

[AshleyHalliwell] thanks so much for the advice. It's people like you who are unbias that I appreciate leaving comments. Not that I don't appreciate everyone else's warnings and experiences that they share, but it doesn't mean my experience will be a negative one as well. For the majority of you who left comments telling me it's NOT A GAME, I'm not some 14 year old girl using it to find out wether or not I'm going to get a good grade on a test. I've never used one before because I very well know it's not a game you play for amusment. This is why I seaked helped from all of you as to wether or not there are accually ways to protect myself and others from negative spirits. Many people have told me that your mind set and energy (which would vary from person to person) take a great toll on how the session will go. I will be the speaker and stop anything from happening (if it does) to the best of my knowledge. So before I perform this session I'm going to research and keep reading your comments until I piece together how I'm goning to go about this whole thing. Agian thank you for all of your help especially [DarkkX], [blkfox], [CJ], and [Phoenix77]!

Some people think that if the planchet moves in a figure 8 pattern it means that something evil is in the board.

I don't believe it myself, I think that who or whatever is in the board is taking time to think or is trying to figure out a way to say something.

Question...what does it mean when the planchette moves on its own, in the form of a figure eight?
AshleyHalliwell (4 stories) (100 posts)

First off I'm going to tell you the honest to goddess truth: Ouija boards are NOT evil! It's all about how you use them. You can ask a spirit just about anything as long as you are in the right setting. You could surround yourself with salt, or you could pray to whoever you believe in asking for protection. When you begin the seance make sure you demand that no evil spirits come through. Sometimes that works if you've prayed or did the salt circle, but sometimes it doesn't. Keep in mind that evil entities will lie to you to get your energy level up. Spirits feed off of our energy and when a person gets excited, nervous or scared, they send off more energy for the spirit to feed on. (Which is probably why the spirit could throw things around her house.)

Other then that remember that at the end of every session you need to push the pointer to 'goodbye' and then flip the board over and leave it that way for a few minuets. I'm not quite sure why but it works for me so I thought I'd let you know.

Also you need to have a good aura around you to be able to use the board. You've got to be careful because spirits can, and sometimes do, lie. Most of the time it's not malicious intent but occasionally it can be. Just remember that if you catch a spirit lying to politely ask them to leave and if they don't then shove the pointer to goodbye and ask if anyone else wants to communicate with you.

Using a Ouija Board can be a very enriching experience if you let it. You could contact your spirit guide, or guardian angel, if you let yourself. The problem is that most people go into a seance with this stereotypical ideas about what goes on with Ouija Boards and how they works and that distracts them from achieving whatever it is that they wanted to do. All you've got to remember is to be careful and you'll be fine. Don't let some of the people on here scare you because as long as you do the seance properly, you won't let anything into your home. I've been using a Ouija Board correctly for years, and I've only had one or two bad experiences with it and even then nothing entered my house.

Sam...nothing good can come from opening yourself and your home to whatever's floating around in your house. My advice would be to trash the thing when you get it.

As for the salt circle so nothing can get out? YOU HAVE TO BE INSIDE THE CIRCLE TO TOUCH THE POINTER! Does this not scream "bad idea"?

I've experienced a lot of strange things in my life so I'm not just pulling what I'm saying out of my a*s...I KNOW that making yourself open to whatever's passing by is not pleasant and could make your situation SO much worse.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck

Destroy it. Why even bother with the spirit world? You could really get yourself in trouble. Spirits are supernatural Super in strength and super in intelligence.

About the cleansing, I forgot to ask if you'd be cleansing the board every time you use it or just the once upon receiving. If you plan to cleanse it with every use, the smudging of white sage is generally easy with the occasional rub down of salt or holy water/holy oil. If you're going to do it only one time when you receive it, then I recommend doing as much cleansing as possible. (As in, doing as many of the cleansing rituals as I could find.)

Remember that just because you have cleansed it does not mean that there is nothing there anymore. It means that you have taken some of the energy away. Once used, a board will ALWAYS have residual energy from the users and entities that have come in contact/use with it.

The only way to take away ALL of the energy is to deactivate it, and the deactivation of the board takes much time, energy, and materials.
DarkkX (guest)

There are several ways to cleanse the board before use. You can bless it or have it blessed by someone. (When blessing an object, be certain you know what you are doing.) Most people tend to smudge the board with white sage. (I find that this is sufficient enough for me.) However, there are many other ways to cleanse the board. Some people pray over the board to cleanse is (I'm not entirely sure how this works) and others wipe or scrub the board with salt (preferably sea salt) depending on the type of material it is made of. It probably would not hurt to place holy water or holy oil in or on it.

As for closing out a session? There are many ways to go about this, but it all depends on your preference. Phoenix77 mentioned picturing the door way closing and locking, and that it was preferable a witch do this. I am not a witch, by any means, but I find that visualizing things in one's mind is a very powerful tool. The user's visualization of the door closing and locking SHOULD be sufficient enough if done properly. However, before that is done, it does help to notify the spirit that you would like to end the session and closing with a few departing words before moving the planchet to End/Good Bye.

You ought to be aware that, although you may visualize the door closing and locking, some spirits may not want to go and will fight to keep the door open. At that point, you must "force" the door closed and locked in such a way that only you can open it again, and even then only when you are ready.

I thank all of you for helping me out on this. I just wanted to let some of you know that my board has never been used as he has sent me a picture of the box still wrapped.
I believe in God but I don't not attend any churches around my area how do I cleanse my board and especially end the session properly without a witch? 😕

My apologies if I've offended you [Phoenix77] or anyone else of the Wiccan community. It was written late into the night and I didn't realize that there was significant difference between a 'pentacle' and a 'pentagram' for some people.
Phoenix77 (3 stories) (38 posts)
13 years ago (2009-10-09)
One more thing, Wiccians and witches use pentacles, NOT pentagrams. It may be a small distinction for others but it's important to me. I wouldn't call a Baptists cross a crucifix. I have spoken with some Satanists and they agree that the two are exclusive from one another. A pentacle has a single point at the top signifing that the spirit is the most important element in this world. A Pentigram has two points at the top (so it's inverted) showing they think other wise.

You seem to have gotten a lot of good advice. But I think a little more can't hurt things. My son asked basically the same questions about a ouija board and I did some research before I typed up these rules to follow. They are the ones I found the most.

Rules for the best and safest results for an Ouija session.

1.) Spirits/others can lie just as easily as humans can.
2.) All participates should know and agree with all rules this sheet sets forth.
3.) Ask for blessings before getting started. For both participates and tools.
4.) Always have a secondary light source. Chem-light or glow stick
5.) Make a protection circle. Chalk or salt, either will do fine.
6.) Use people in numbers of three (3,6,9) to work the board. Two are not enough to fight, if one arises.
7.) "I cast out any and all negative spirits and energy in the name of ________" Your religion dictates who you ask for help from.
8.) Be specific about who you want to speak with, no open ended greetings.
9.) Use only one speaker.
10.) Names are important, get the spirits' name.
11.) Someone should record what is asked and answered either by written account or recorder.
12.) No one is to leave the board once begun, until you two (speaker & spirit) agree to part or speaker commands "Goodbye"
13.) Never burn the board! Break the board into at least four pieces and bury into four different holes.

Do not believe that this is only a game. You can never be sure that you are talking to who you asked for. After all it is too easy to lie to someone who can't see you. Don't ask for a "sign you are with us" or "touch someone to prove you're here" that is an invitation without restriction and people never are happy with the results. The speaker must picture the "door way" to close and lock (preferably a witch needs to do this, just to be safe). The board works, it's not a game. Be careful, be prudent and above all be respectful: you can't be sure who you are talking to.

My mother is a Priestess. She refused to allow me or any of my family to use one. Com'mon, dude! If a Priestess denies her own contact, what does that tell you?
I won't allow them in my home and neither should you. A total waste of money!

I would also be careful with buying this off Ebay, as you don't know if it has been used... And what sort of things happened while it was being in use.
Just be careful

fossilera (1 stories) (3 posts)

Yes, you can contact your spirit guides, but I would be careful about any answers you get from the board.

As for buying the boards from ebay-I got mine as a christmas gift from there, and it is quite literally a dead board, as in I haven't gotten any answers from it/contact.

However, be warned that you COULD get any spirits that were attached to it for some reason (like they didn't close the ouija properly, etc...). I know because I now have two entities that came with it (see below)

The first one takes on the form of a metallic sphere (probably an orb), and the other, which I named Lurker, follows behind you everywhere in the apartment.

I can say that salt works, because I had a line of it going across my bedroom doorway, and I have never seen/felt the "Lurker" cross into my room yet.

And as a final note, my ouija is in my bedroom, with the planchette on it all day, and nothing has ever happened. So all I can say is listen to BOTH sides of the story, then decide if you want to use it or not.

Final Final note: In this day and age, everything is dangerous when used incorrectly or in the wrong hands. Use it correctly, and with a little caution, you will be fine;)

Using a board is like talking to a stranger on the internet... Some people tell the truth maybe just want a friend, and others will lie for attention or to lure you into bad intentions... At least on the internet we know it's a HUMAN we are talking to...
I have "played" with ouija boards on a few occasions but NEVER will again... One time the board just kept saying f*** you, f*** you, f*** you, so I ended the session.
Another time I was playing at a sleepover with 4 of my friends. All of the answers came into my head before the words were spelled out, so I thought I was unintentionally moving the panchet. I decided to sit out and just watch but I kept getting the answers in my head, not easy stuff either, names, dates etc... My friends didn't know, I didn't tell them... We put the board away and watched T.V., I was the last person to go to bed... I woke up in the morning with the panchet UNDER MY PILLOW, no one at the sleepover placed it there... Every since then I have stayed away from ouija.

I think DarkkX has pretty much taken everything I was going to say. Read the advice given to you, use it, be safe. There is a reason that this Ouija Board was on sale on Ebay and no, that reason is not a good one.
DarkkX (guest)
13 years ago (2009-10-08)
The fact that you used the word "playing" in conjunction with a ouija board definitely implies that you are not ready to use one. Ouija boards after often a hit or miss. (As in, there is or is not contact.) Like all things spiritual, it is something that serious thought and consideration should be put into. Much research should be done before going into ANY session. I say "any" because you should want to contact a specific person or entity, assuming that human spirits are not the only reason for wanting to try this, and not have a "take what you can get" attitude. (The "take what you can get" attitude usually calls in mostly negative energies, so keep that in mind.)

I hope that the ouija board that you purchased off of eBay has not previously been used. What a lot of people do not realize, those that are inexperienced, is that whether or not the session is closed out properly there will always be residual energies from past performances. Those who sell (used) ouija boards over eBay are usually trying to get rid of something that he/she brought on to his/herself and cannot control. New, as in packaged, ouija boards (the ones that are packaged and sold in stores as novelty games) are a bit more safe. However, bear in mind that it's safe as long as it's not/never used. Once the threshold has been crossed, there is no going back for a board. No matter how many times you cleanse the board, no matter how many times you've closed out properly, no matter anything, the board has been used and the energy will always be there. If you've purchased a ouija board that was created by hand (the material does not matter), there is always going to be energy there whether or not it has been used. Ouija boards that are made by hand are often infused with the creator's energies. This is because it was a personally created item, there was time and effort put into making the piece. Their energies often influence the board, so it is important to get a feel for the person before buying a handmade ouija board.

Only time will tell whether or not you decide to try your hand at using the ouija board, but in the end it is your decision. While we can give advice and beseech you to go on with it or to leave it alone, you are the alpha and omega in this situation.

Many people all over the world have had experiences with ouija boards. Some are good, some are bad, and some have had absolutely nothing happen. Your own energy, mindset, religion, and so on do have an influence on who or what is called through the board. By the way, if you plan on using a ouija board with a friend or associate, it is important to know what type of person he or she is because they will be influencing who or what is brought through. Also keep in mind that whoever has the stronger energy usually has more influence on what comes though.

What your beliefs are greatly influence and govern everything you are and everything you do.

Note: It is usually a better idea to use a board that you have created since it will be more sensitive to you. Aside from that, you can inscribe protective sigils and install protective stones or other ingredients directly in the board that will HELP to aid and protect you. (I have to stress that it will HELP because it is not absolute.)

I have used ouija boards multiple times in the past and while I have not used one recently, the laws/rules of the spiritual world never change.

Since I am ever so certain that you are going to use the ouija board at some point in the future, be it near or far, I feel obligated to correct you on some things and give you some pointers.

Most people believe that a count down either through the alphabet or numbers be it forwards or backwards will unleash the spirit in control of the board into our plane of existence. I can tell you that there is some credence to that belief, so stop it (the planchet) immediately -- it would also be wise to end the session right then and there. While it is not an absolute that the spirit is definitely going to come through, there is a possibility. I have had a few spirits try to come through the board during some sessions, but I have never given them the chance to finish. ('Better to be safe than sorry' goes the old saying.)

Some people believe that there are questions that are required to be asked and other questions that are to be avoided. I can tell you now that this is entirely false. People may consider it to be akin to the US military's "Don't ask, don't tell" policy. (For you military folks out there, don't take offense, I'm just trying to explain things in easy terms.) You must remember that while you are in contact with a spirit or entity through a board that they have very conscious minds. (You could possibly even consider them regular human thoughts.) I think, in my own beliefs, that it's best to find out as much as you can about the spirit that you are communicating with. The best way to do this is by research! However, if you want to jump the gun, go ahead, but be forewarned that what you see (or, in this case, read) is not always what you get. Words can only tell you but so much; however, often times a spirit is unable to hide the true nature of his or her being. (So if you get a really bad or sickening feeling, it is best to end the session.) You can ask the spirit or entity anything you want, but bear in mind that they are not obligated to tell the truth -- angels and demons alike, as well as other spirits/entities.

The behavior of entities and spirits is generally unknown to us, like people, they have the ability to hide things. There have been situations that I've read about where people communicated with a particular entity or being that seemed benevolent and then that being turned around and became vicious or malevolent, and sometimes just down right evil. You can't always take what you've experienced with a spirit at face value.

A lot of people think that the first use of the ouija board automatically equal manifestations. This is not always the case. However, this does not mean that it will never happen or that it hasn't happened. In cases of the ouija board, manifestations depend heavily upon the powers, abilities, and energies of both the user and the spirit. (Here, I will repeat: "Better safe than sorry." Be prepared and do plenty of research.)

Research the spirit that you want to come in contact with and try to call out directly to that being. Bear in mind, however, that who/what you are calling may not respond, or that another may come to you in the guise of who/what you called. Often times, if a being came in the guise of another, he/she/it might provide you with false or misleading information -- it does not matter if some of the information was true. Like I said, you can't always take it at face value.

For protection, you CAN use any religious symbols that you truly believe in. If it's blessed, it can be even more powerful. (Like if you're Jewish, you can use the Star of David; if you're Christian, you can use a cross; if you're a Satanist, you can use the seal or sigil of Baphomet; if you're a Wiccan, you can use a pentagram or the Triple Moon... Etcetera etcetera.) However, this does not mean that you are protected 100%. Some spirits may find some religious symbols offensive or it may infuriate them. A circle of salt is not necessary, but it most definitely is recommended. You should also use a collection of protective, repelling, healing, and absorbing stones/crystals, such as: moonstone, quartz (clear, rose, rutilated, etc), citrine, sapphire, jade, etc. It would also be a good idea to have a bit of holy water and or holy oil on hand.

When you've closed out your session and are storing away your ouija board, I have a personal belief that it is best to store the board itself and the planchet away from each other. You can call me paranoid, and I suppose that I am an to extent, but I can deal with my life as it is and have no need for manifestations or anything of that sort. I believe that it is a good idea to store these items separately because you don't want any undue activity happening while you are unaware. Remember that some of these entities are quite capable of moving things on their own. After all, you don't want to turn your back on your ouija board for a few days and when things start happening, you go back to find that it has gone through the letters or numbers.

If the situation ever gets to be unbearable, you can get rid of the board. (Thankfully I have never had any problems during my experiences with ouija boards.) Personally, I don't believe in destroying ouija boards immediately after a bad experience, but other people do. How you get rid of it or destroy it is entirely up to you. I have the belief that the ouija board is a doorway. So if it's destroyed, how can you close it? In any case, there are usually only three things that a spirit will bind itself to once it gets out of the board: the user (s), the ouija board itself, and/or the location in which they came through.

Warning: Some people have found themselves addicted to using the ouija board. (It may sound like a joke, but it isn't.) Like most other addictions, it can become quite dangerous.

I hope I've covered a lot for you. If you have anything else you'd like to ask, feel free to.

First off, the previous commenters are right, it can be dangerous, so PLEASE be careful. If you do your research and are smart about it, you shouldn't have much trouble.

I'm not sure about the salt, I've always used white candles, at least five, in a circle. BE SURE AND BLESS YOUR BOARD, before using it. The Lord's Prayer is what I've used also. We've always asked to speak with a specific person, too. But you have to be careful, because sometimes the spirits like to play tricks on you and say they're someone they're not. When you ask if they're from the Sun or the Moon, if they hesitate at all, even if they hesitate and then move to Sun, I would tell them goodbye. You don't want to risk talking to something that isn't good anymore than you already are by being on the board.

A friend of mine has a myspace with more detailed instructions you can visit.
They have instructional videos and info about the board and how to properly use it.

If you have any questions you can contact me on my profile on this site or

Good luck and be careful!

Another thing to think about when purchasing products from E-Bay, you have no idea who, where, what, this board has been involved/participated in. Obvious dangers aside, you may find ADDITIONAL DANGER just by using a board without knowledge of its past. That in itself is reason enough not to use it in my opinion.

I've used an ouija board before (the story is on here) and once I did, my senses to seeing things from the other side became a lot stronger... My mum and I always wonder that if I hadn't of used it, maybe this wouldn't of happened.
Playing with these boards is like playing with fire - sooner or later you are bound to get burnt.
If you decide to go ahead and use it, your first experience may be fine, and that's good, consider that a lucky one... Like I have.
I would suggest that before you do use it, if you are still going to, research everything you can about these boards and how to protect yourself from evil spirits.
Take care...

First and foremost I am going to state that in no way is the ouija board a toy and you shouldn't "play" with it. "Playing" with a ouija board is setting yourself up surely for some unwanted consequences that, due to your lack of experience, you are not equipped to handle. Please keep that in mind, because as it seems, you have pretty much made up your mind whether or not you are going to use it.

With that being said, I am going to disagree with the negativity people on here hold towards the board. Although I do understand why, I believe it is a mislead way of thinking, and please, I mean no disrespect to anyone by saying that, so I apologize in advance if I have ofended anyone. We all have our opinions and I am chosing to state mine. Granted, yes, you can have bad/negative experiences during a ouija session, but I disagree that each session leads to a negative outcome and that all usage of the board is bad. Like I said in my recent story about my experience, to which you agreed with the statement, it is all luck of the draw. You don't know what you are going to get, and if you're not careful, then yes, you could very well achieve something that you'll end up regretting.

I don't want to encourage you to use the ouija board you have purchased, especially with it having been purchased on EBay (is it a used board or new?). However, I warn you to please use extreme caution when you choose to finally use it.

Also, like I said in response to your comment on my story, contact me through my profile and I will be more than willing to talk to you more about this.

I see you have received several responses warning you not to use this board. I want to add my comment too! "WARNING COMES BEFORE DESTRUCTION!" I've said this before with someone else on this site that was dabbling with the occult. The money you spent on something like that could have been spent on something more positive. You do what you want to do and listen to who you want to listen to, but you can not be too sure what you may conjure up using that thing and you said you haven't played with it yet. It is not a game, it can be dangerous. You can open a door that you have no idea on how to close. If you feel that strong about using it, try finding someone who knows about this sort of thing. You are inviting something in to your world with these boards. Something more powerful than you can handle. I've never heard that you can contact a Guardian Angel on one of those boards.

Keep us posted on what doors you open up and can't close and what evils that cross over into your world that starts haunting you.

God bless you!

Kinda gotta agree with the others, you know. I've only heard and had bad experiences with those things. Interesting website by the way, HobbyHolly.

I think you should reconsider using that thing. Be careful! Once you open the portal it is very hard to close it back! You need a lot of power to do so and these creatures will do anything to intimidate you and leading you into letting them coming into your life. Once they are in, they never leave... REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE OPENING PANDORA'S BOX! ANYTHING THAT COMES OUT IS A DISASTER!

Thank you guys for all of your comments. They are GREATLY appreciated! I want to do this but maybe I'll just put it up in the closet until I'm ready. I understand that things can get out of hand and I want to take the extra-precautions so it don't. As far as helping me even if I decide to go the other way, thank you opaleone. I'll research some more on them before I begin... 😐 - sam

I hate to sound like a broken record here, but I would strongly advise you not to use the board. First of all, you mentioned "playing" with the board. It is not a toy and should not be taken lightly at all. You need to do some research on the proper use if you really want to use it. Most people who use the board open and close the session improperly, and make all sorts of mistakes when using the board. Some things you might want to try instead is blessing the house. You can burn sage and incense and ask any negative energy to leave your space. Also, prayer is a great way to ward away any negative feelings or energy that may be residing in your space. If you insist on using the board, you need to be very careful and make sure that you have the full permission of the home owner before you perform such an irresponsible act in their home. Please, reconsider dabbling in this type of experiment. The people that are cautioning you mostly have had some kind of negative experience with the board, and that is why we do not want you to have to go through that. Please, please reconsider.

Coming from a family with strong spiritual tendencies, if you have any sort of ability to recognize or experience ghosts and spirits I'd leave the Oujia board behind. Its a flashpoint for spirits and more often than not, you attract the equivalent of lightening not enlightenment.

Okay, clearly you're going to do this no matter what.
The thing to keep in mind is you ARE inviting partial possesion by allowing use of your hand and energy.
I would recommend casting a protective circle around yourself, before you ever start using the board.
It's not hard to do. The author SilverRavenWolf, while a bit cheesy. Does have a few servicable spells. Find them and make use of them.
Also, state out loud exactly what is and is not allowed while in your circle. Make bounderies. Your WILL is the most important thing that will keep you safe. If you insist on doing this, don't be a victim.

Hello Sammi,

The very fact that you ordered the board first and then chose to ask questions about it second implies that you will most likely try the board no matter what we say here.

With that being said, here is a detailed account of my personal (very negative) experience with a Ouija board.


When one is young, some lessons can only be learned the hard way. I hope this does not apply to you.

Having undirected conversations with spirits is tantamount to inviting demons into your home and life and into the home and lives of your entire family. An undirected spirit conversation is when someone starts off the Ouija session by asking something like "is anyone there" as opposed to a calling out to a very specific spirit by name that was attracted to the person in some other way (a more controlled and safe way) than the Ouija board itself.

There is a reason we have natural protection from demons and that the ghosts of our dead are supposed to move on to the "other side" after death to be seperate from us who still live. These spirits can be quite harmful to us here in this life and if you forego your natural protection against any of them by willingly establishing a relationship with some of them by talking to them through the Ouija board, you can easily be blind to what the spirit can start doing to you and helpless to defend yourself against it.

Be warned, you will be playing with fire if you choose to use this divination device (it is NOT a toy).

I advise you to destroy the board and to consider the small financial loss incurred by it's purchase to be a bargain when compared to the alternatives that can await if you do use it.

I agree with everyone else. Ouija boards are extremely dangerous. You are risking the chance that you may open a portal to the "other world" and you could allow a whole lot of bad "spirits" in. I would get rid of that board as soon as you get it.

Just leave it be. Its not worth it. Following things could happen. 1) You won't get any "feedback" so to speak. 2) If you do find a friend to help you there is a good chance they'll just mess with you 3) you could really open a can of worms you don't want to deal with.

I've always wondered Parker Bros. Stance on the toy. I did a google search and found this link:


(the cursor is kind of fun). But anyway, just leave it be.

Sammi, do you really want to play with the board? By indicating that you have asked many people to play with you and everybody has declined, you have inadvertently implied that people know it is dangerous and irresponsible to meddle in things we can't control and have no knowledge of. Please reconsider. I'd have asked you to put it back on e-Bay, but then, unfortunately, someone else might open up a portal and let all hell break loose.

You are young. Get rid of that god damned thing (ouija board) you are playing with fire... EVERY ENCOUNTER TURNS OUT TO BE A VERY BAD TRIP.

A friend of mine also had a VERY BAD experience with a Ouija board. GET RID OF IT! NOT A JOKE. IT IS NOT A PLAY THING!

Be prepared for the rest of the comments telling you to not use the board. I agree with all of them I am afraid. They are dangerous. It really is like opening your door to anyone. I'll let them elaborate.
