Only that it creeps me out.
Anybody out there know about ouija boards?
Only that they’re about as dangerous as any other divining tools. They were made as toys, but people started coming up with horror stories about them and now hardly anyone wants to use one. Though, everyone usually has a different story to tell. Mom says she used one and it was a joke, then Ronnie used one and he says he hotline a demon, then the lady who gave me my ouija board says all she ever got was good out of hers. Most people who use them state that you need protection before you start playing with one, like wearing a spiritual condom before sex to keep all the STD spirits and other baddies away. Some say you should never do it alone, I personally like doing it alone. Blah.
Oh, and spirits lie.
I agree with this too.
If used properly they can be very useful! Just remember that when you use these you’re creating something almost like a portal. If you open it correctly and then close it correctly when done, they represent no threat. And yes….spirits lie sometimes. But don’t discredit them just bc you’ve heard bad things from them. Some people distrust tarot and other kinds of divination for similar reasons. :) hope this helps. :)
~These are all the things I’ve heard about it, although I’ve never used one:
- Never use it just to fuck around. Only use it if you’re wanting to summon something. A spirit guide, a dead relative or friend, fae, whatever. Don’t play with it just to see what you’ll get, because you don’t know what you’ll get.
- Set up some kind of protection beforehand. Cleanse the area, open a circle, sigils, etc. When you’re done, you can take the circle down and cleanse the area and the board again.
- Never take your hands off the marker while the spirit is still there. It will close the portal/connection and the spirit will be in the real world with you.
- When you are done, even if the spirit doesn’t want to leave, force the marker to the “goodbye” position and it will force the spirit to leave. Then take your hands off the marker and it will close the portal.
It’s so important to call on specific entities. It makes things a lot safer. I typically only use it to talk to dead relatives and pets (yes, you can use them to talk to pets, it’s super cute) or other entities that I know already. My friends and I have used one to talk to random spirits and it was awful.
Protection measures I usually do: cast a circle, scatter salt and herbs around the perimeter of the area (avoid scattering herbs if you have pets or small children who may try to eat it before you clean it up), and putting masking tape on the back of the board and drawing a symbol on it (pentagram, cross, ect).
Also, don’t try to use a makeshift board. Many spirits get pissed about them. If you want to make your own board, please put a lot of time into it and make it look more high-quality than a piece of paper with letters on it.
