When we take a look at well documented cases surrounding the actual cases of using the talking board, we sometimes have to caution on the sides of what can actually happen by using them, as we have seen several movies, investigated many said cases of paranormal phenomena, from what is said to be the usage of such boards we must consider and take a deeper look into the said practices.
I have actually used Ouija boards several times in my life, and from my own experience, Ouija Boards are not safe…Messing around with a Ouija board, on the right night, right setting and with the right people.. you can see, feel some the energy that can come forth from conjuring a departed spirit… Keep in mind… that spirits can lie, and you never know what your actually calling.. and this is my problem when contacting the dearly departed, there is no way to know what your bringing back from the other side, we all know my beliefs concerning demons and unclean spirits right? there is no secrets to what i think there. Simple advice do not do it period.
The term oija is defined by en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouija as”
The ouija (/ˈwiːdʒə/ WEE-jə), also known as a spirit board or talking board, is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0–9, the words “yes”, “no”, “hello” (occasionally), and “goodbye”, along with various symbols and graphics. It uses a planchette (small heart-shaped piece of wood or plastic) as a movable indicator to indicate the spirit’s message by spelling it out on the board during a séance. Participants place their fingers on the planchette, and it is moved about the board to spell out words. “Ouija” has become a trademark that is often used generically to refer to any talking board.
Following its commercial introduction by businessman Elijah Bond on July 1, 1890, the Ouija board was regarded as an innocent parlor game unrelated to the occult until American Spiritualist Pearl Curran popularized its use as a divining tool during World War I.
Paranormal and supernatural beliefs associated with Ouija have been harshly criticized by the scientific community, since they are characterized as pseudoscience. The action of the board can be parsimoniously explained by unconscious movements of those controlling the pointer, a psychophysiological phenomenon known as the ideomotor effect.
Some mainstream Christian denominations have “warned against using Ouija boards”, holding that they can lead to demonic possession. Occultists, on the other hand, are divided on the issue, with some saying that it can be a positive transformation; others rehash the warnings of many Christians and caution “inexperienced users” against it.
http://ghostresearch.org/articles/ouija.html I would strongly advise against the use of the Ouija, automatic writing or séances. If you don’t happen to be lucky or unlucky enough (depends on how you look at it) to contact any ghosts, then if nothing else, you could become emotionally attached or dependent on the board’s advice. This can be psychologically adverse on the psyche as you will attempt to get more and more information out of the board and you could actually just be using the board as an avenue to the inside of your own mind without realizing it. In other words, you could be asking questions of the board and then your subconscious mind would be using the planchette to answer your own questions! This often happens to those people who use the board by themselves.
One such example was written in the (National Examiner, 31787 by Robert Stamper)
I invited a foul horror into my house with a Ouija board. My brother and I got no results when we started to use the psychic device, but suddenly the message indicator mysteriously began to move. The first thing the board told us was that the message was being sent by Seth. Then I made the tragic mistake of telling the board to prove it was real by doing something supernatural. The results were startling and scary. The board told us that the grandfather of one of my best friends would die in a week. The chandelier in the room began to shake violently and the chimes rang like pieces of metal being smashed together. The room became as cold as ice and we were shivering, though the thermometer read 70 degrees. The horrible stench of death filled the room and we couldn’t stop gagging and coughing.
Suddenly, the noises stopped and the room was as quiet as a cemetery in the middle of the night. My brother and I looked at each other in terror. We opened the windows to get rid of the stink or rotting flesh and told each other we’d forget the whole thing. But a week later the grandfather of one of my best friends died just as the board has predicted! And from time to time the chandelier would rattle, the room freeze and that awful smell return. I couldn’t take it any more. I threw the board away and told my mother about the experience. She told me that once you tamper with a Ouija board, its evil spell will remain forever. And to this day, those terrifying tremors shake the house and the stench of death fills the room.
The sun reported this(The Sun, 12986)
A simple Ouija board became a passport to Hell for a family that accidentally summoned a demon into their living room. “I thought it might have been the Devil himself,” says John Ravens, father of the tormented family. “When it was over, we were all bleeding and had severe burn marks. Our living room was a disaster area.”
“It was supposed to be a joke,” says Gloria, the girl’s mother. “We were going to make believe we were talking with the spirit world.”
Little Lynda, her nine-year-old brother Ronald, and their parents gathered around the board for what they thought was going to be an evening of fun at their home in a Toronto, Canada suburb. “We were just playing around with it when suddenly the planchette that spells out answers began moving by itself,” says John. “We were all scared, but then I thought maybe one of the kids was up to tricks. We started asking questions, and this spirit began speaking to us. “Then it asked if it could visit with us. By this time, I was sure someone was playing a joke, and I said yes,” he adds.
That’s when the nightmare began. “The demon appeared within seconds,” says John. “It spun around the room overhead, laughing and cursing at us. “It was surrounded by a ring of fire and the room became so hot, it was like an inferno from Hell.” The family describes the demon as red and black with scaly skin and horns. It also had giant bat wings. “Then it suddenly swooped down and attacked us,” recalls John, horror flickering over his features. “It started biting each of us on the face and arms. “We tried getting up and running for the door, but every time we did, the creature started clawing us. It was so fast, we couldn’t escape from it.”
Lynda and brother Ronald were picked up repeatedly and hurled across the room. As they lay helplessly on the floor, the creature pounded on their chests and heads. “It had hooves that dug into my children’s faces and skin, marking them badly,” says Gloria. The attack lasted for more than an hour before the horrifying demon vanished as quickly as it first appeared. The children were screaming and crying as John pulled them out of the house and drove to a nearby hospital, where they were treated for cuts and burns.
