I have to add that a couple of the posts here has been almost completely right, even though the people involved have little experience...they've
worked it out....thank you.
I have experience of boards, but nothing dramatic, and the biggest problem is that the people using them *tend* to be very inexperienced teenagers who
are highly fuelled anyway in terms of energy and hormones making them prime targets for anything that wants to make contact...they also havent had the
time and life experience to learn real discrimination. I'm sure Ouija boards can be used safely, but with difficulty, but someone older, more
grounded and much more experienced than your typical 16 year old experimenter.
The boards act as a gateway that will allow any type of entity in...it might be fine, it might go almost unnoticed for a while. It might be something
really toxic, that will make contact, tell you all kinds of things to convince you it's ok and only much later reveal what it's true agenda
is....these entities will lie to you always. In any other form of contact with other dimensions, as has been correctly pointed out, there is a vast
amount of training that takes place if the training is done correctly...it isn't always, but more of that later...this teaching shows the reader how
to protect and ground properly, and develop relationships with genuine guides, and most importantly, how to challenge. This is the bit that people new
to spirit work and even some "experienced" spirit workers don't realise they need. It's so important to challenge any energy that we make contact
with to find out the source and send it back if we don't like it.
It's so easy to do, but for a person new to spirit contact, they are usually so keen to have any kind of conversation, they don'teven bother to
learn this. That's when the real problems will start.
As for talking to our collective subconscious, this is also true in my opinion...expecially where card systems are used. We do know all the answers,
and accessing these using tarot or other decks is fine...much less likely to invite in spirits simply because we're dealing with our own higher
minds, our collective soul, if you like. I have had spirit step in frequently during a reading though, and the energy is very different...it's a very
useful combnation to get an accurate reading, but takes practice.
It's not just the uninitiated that make mistakes though, I've had the misfortune to sit in a mediumship circle with a so-called psychic who
completey freaked out with what made contact with her, simply because she didn't follow the protection routine the rest of us were doing....she
thought she knew better and did it her own way...and the result was terrifying...for her only...the rest of us were just fine.
Please read and re-read Cyberian's post on their sister's experience. This won't happen every time for sure, but it's a very real and scary
possibility...and much more common than we realise. Sometimes entities will hang around for years causing trouble at a low level, until one day they
get really p*ssed at us. Not worth bothering with when there are alternatives.
