I know that I agree with you that your sub con can move the thing, but the OP says her husband is not religious but would get rid of it if she bought it home, now perhaps he has had a bad time with someone that used one.

What Im saying is that the whole reason for wanting one is a desire to contact something, Im saying yes you can but you don't need a board the sheer fact that you invite it in is enough.

I agree its a toy some people move it to letters sub con, but you have people that are trying to contact an unseen force which is the danger not the board as that's just the focus.

You should not invite any thing in to your house as you will only get unclean stuck on this level and lower.

I don't believe in the supernatural whatsoever and am certainly not religious.

But still, having been raised in a religious family, I think having one in my house would definitely have a psychological effect on me and completely freak me out.

The mind can be a powerful thing, I suppose.

A ouija board is basically an invitation. In using one, you risk attracting spiritual forces that are unfriendly, even though they often claim to be very friendly. You are pretty much opening a door to beings you don't want to have around. It's a dangerous action to take. Many assume they can communicate with the spirits of those who have died, but the simple truth is, you cannot know to whom you speak. Demonic entities could easily know personal details, that they could use to deceive someone.

Your husband is right not to want one around. They are considered harmless by many, but they are a devide designed to communicate. The makers can call it a "game" but unless they state that people are supposed to move the thing themselves, and deceive one another, their position is less than honest.

A lot of people have had some pretty bad experiences as a result of using these boards, as well. Some, you can read about on the site here. Do a search and check out the stories.

Best advice, locate and get rid of the one you have. Don't get another.

I would of loved to of seen that table!

yeah, Ouija has a very bad reputation. Many stories out there about people running into things they didn't understand while using one. I've used one a few times over the years and my own thoughts on it are unless you are the confident type who has no fear when you engage in something like that, you should be ok, but if you spook easy, have a fear of the paranormal and believe demons are gonna getcha, then leave it alone.

It is a tool, one that many believe opens doors, and what comes through those doors is not under your control.
Kind of like random phone calls with a chance of meeting something that answers at the other end of the line.

Could be interesting, could be scary, could be just weird and it could also be potentially dangerous if it really is opening connections, which I believe it can do.

Regardless, I would of loved to have seen the table as I find stuff like that extremely interesting.

My wife had a bad experience with Ouija. Had a dark entity tell her it was a child named Timmy who died on the property back in the 60's. Her and her roommate "talked" to Timmy every day with the Ouija asking him questions and talking. Paranormal things started happening in the house little things at first. One day she was taking a shower and heard the door open so she got out and found the front and back doors open. Stuff like that, thing is the more they talked to "timmy" the more things happened and the more outrageous they became. One night she said she had sleep paralysis and saw an old woman standing in the closet door. Then she said a little kid (which at the time she said she thought it was her boyfriends little brother and was like, "what's he doing here?") came out of the closet and started feeding her crackers. She said she eventually went back to sleep and woke up with crumbs in the bed that morning. Just lots of really weird stuff.

One day a lady called them. She asked if anyone in the house had been talking to Timmy. My wife asked her who she was and she would not say. All she said was to stop talking to Timmy immediately they were in danger if they kept on. She said that freaked her out but the last straw was when her and her roommate came back from the store one day and found all the kitchen cabinets, drawers, refrigerator all wide open and the kitchen chairs moved to the living room.

They left their clothes everything, told the landlord to keep the deposit and never looked back. Her roommate Kurtis also started acting really weird for a while after that. Crazy story I know but we've been married 15 years and she still says it happened all the same. I've tried to talk about it with Kurtis but he only talks about it if he's had a few drinks.

Another funny story, my wife, Kurtis and I and his friend "Johnny" were up late one night. Kurtis and her were telling Johnny about "Timmy" and all that they had experienced at the other house. (This was several years later.) Johnny was very adamant that there was no such thing as spirits (He was drunk) and Ouija boards were just the people moving the planchette about with their fingers, nothing more. She had recently purchased a used Ouija board at a garage sale that day and it was still in her car and he was picking it up looking at it. Johnny wanted to play with it and wanted to prove that it was just us messing with him. So we sat right there in the middle of the driveway at 2am and started asking it questions.

Johnny started off being drunk and belligerent. Then finally he asked it, "Tell me something that only I would know about!" The board spelled out D-I-C-K-F-I-L-M-S. Johnny turned white and said, "I don't wanna play with this thing anymore." We asked him what the hell that meant and he would not tell us. He looked genuinely scared. Finally he got drunk enough to admit to us that he had been saving up money for the past few years to move to California and fulfill his dream of becoming a porn star. None of us knew anything about that, he had not told anyone else.

Believe it or don't, its still a funny story when i think back on it.

If you are so sure it is only a toy, would you be willing to use one and see what happens? You seem fairly confident that science can explain away the multitude of anecdotal evidence which suggests it is more than a toy.

Are you up to the challenge?

I wanted to try it al long time ago..

Any1 got any reputation with a board that is printed on A4?
does it have the same effects?

another question = does the entity read minds so you dont necessarily need to talk to it.

I see nothing to fear there then. If the object can funnel a spirit like you claim, but most of the time is just your subconscious then it isn't worth worrying about no more than worrying about a demon possessing your shoes.

The OP's husband may have just been fooled so thoroughly by his subconscious that he is scared of them now. He is already a believer, so it doesn't take much spookiness to make a believer jump to supernatural conclusions.

I tend to agree with your take, and most of the times I "used" one, nothing at all happened... but have to admit board weirdness has happened to myself and people I know.

As we learn more in physics and our universe fades from solid to sentience, "either/or" melds to "maybe/and." Belief might have everything to do with ...everything.

Aside from various instances where information was revealed that isn't easily explained, the one where my mild, friendly dog growled at us and actually climbed a table to stand on the board we were about to use and warned us away and did not calm down until we put it away, shook me up. My dog wasn't subject to belief... as far as I know, anyway.

Maybe she picked up cues from us ... maybe nervousness or something... but that's stretching and the behavior was never repeated with any other object... taken en masse, my experiences point to something odd about those divining boards ... and I'm not religious and wasn't particularly prone to believe a board game would be anything to be cautious about. I don't cower from a chessboard or monopoly.

They're likely just a tool that opens a mental door... where (and if) the door opens to is likely variable. It's silly seeming but those experiences happened... as much as I'd like to forget them. Weird.

The key to successful board channeling is having a strong belief in God and praying that no evil appears through the channel that is opened to the other side. It can be a tool for good or it can indeed open doors that should not be opened. The Oujia board is definitely not a toy and has no prayers of protection attached to it and should therefore be used with caution. Evil definitely exists as an energy and must be respected. A proper channeling board in the proper hands can yield incredible messages. a reply to: Baddogma

Ouija board - mystical tool of likes such as Laura Knight-Jadczyk, who used it to create her Cassiopaea Cult, but best described by Penn and Teller...



No magic, no paranormal, but big business...

I'm trying to tell you that Oujia boards are just the effect of your subconscious moving the board through suggestions.

Okay, but you do know that "subconscious" is just a buzzword that sounds like it means something scientific and rational, when it actually doesn't mean anything. It's just a word used to mean, "something unknown that motivates you to do things without overtly thinking about it."

What motivates the subconscious? Where does mind meet body? I think there might be a little space for a demon to fit in there.

Someone can use a electrical generator to wow primitives and start a cult... doesn't mean the generator is invalid.

What I mean is, it's a false equivalence. I love Penn and Teller... but they aren't the guys to consult about the nature of reality... or lack thereof.

It's great to not just accept nonsense... but critical thinking and experience throws a wrench into the materialistic worldview, I've found... doesn't mean all the suppositions about religion and spirits is true... just that there's something to it that remains to be found.

In this sense it is being used as a word to describe brain functions that happen on levels that you might not be aware of.

life is a mystery... right?

Not really, so far we have no single proof of any paranormal, including Ouija boards.

For years James Randi offered money for anyone to show/display any paranormal activity under lab settings.

Can you guess how many people got prize? (it's million dollar prize)

Following video explains work of Ouija board, nothing mysterious about it, and just think, if someone flips board 180 degree, answer still get where they were before flip, witch can be describe by 2 possibilities, spirits ARE blind or they don't exist.

The ouoja board is very real, and exists in many formats you can even make your own. It just needs numbers and letters and yes and no. The phenomenon is real I have witnessed a few times by others who knew how to use it and since.then i stopped paying attention as i didnt want to get involved with whatever forces where at work. In order to use use the board you must recite specific chants. These chants exist in different languages, they are.like callings and prayers that must be done in order to call the spirits or entities and to send them back from where they came from. And since many amateurs experiment with it as usual they learned somewhere on how to call the entities but never bothered to learn how to send them back and thats where the trouble begins.

Most will not believe in this sort of stuff because they have never been exposed to it it by people that deal with the supernatural but it is a phenomenon that is very very real, and people use theae boards frequently to summon spirits and entities that can provide information about people. You need the specific details about a particular person you wish to enquire about usually there name and always their mothers name this is important so they know what david or what jonathon you are.referring too.

have heard first hand account of what happens when you dont correctly recite the chants and prayers required to send the spirits or entities.back to where they came from.

I used to think the same way... people I respected for their intellect and integrity said the "paranormal" didn't happen... so it was all mistaken perceptions and dogma.

Trouble is, then it happened to me... several hundred times... and no matter how I tried to fit it into a rational, materialistic worldview, I could not.

I'm not saying it's even "paranormal" ... I assert that it's likely explainable through scientific means given time and attention, but we haven't much of a clue at this point... though beings living in a higher spatial dimension makes some sense for a few of my own experiences.

But until something truly weird happens to you, you likely won't accept the possibility... I didn't, anyway.

Heck, with quantum mechanics as they are, there's a whole range of phenomena we are just beginning to explore. The universe is a big place... and just getting bigger... and possibly a projection, at that... so it doesn't end with Randi or Teller!
