Despite the warnings I've witnessed I set up experiments, for my own sake, with two Ouija boards. The evidence, so far, has been supporting that the Ouija board doesn't work for me at my house when I attempt to use it. For those interested, this is what I did:

I allowed myself 10 15 minute sessions with each board. One board was a regular Ouija board sold in toy shops, and the second was a homemade one. During each session I did asked to speak to a willing spirit and handled the board as described in most directions.

Everytime no board movement at all occured. The only catch to all of these experiments was that I was alone and working the board by myself. Next, I want to try different locations for the Ouija board's use; perhaps my house is not exactly a hotspot for spirits.

I was under the impression you needed 2 people for a ouija board?

I have found that some people are better at it then others. Try to find someone with a high spiritual energy (thats what my mother calls it) and do it with him/her.

My mother can take a pen and allow her spirit guide write through it. Freakiest thing I have ever seen. One time she was doing it on a long road trip, my step father asked her to stop because he didn't like it. She basiclly told him he's just paraniod (not exact words but along those lines). All of a sudden the pen stops and she cannot get it to work anymore. She didn't know what was wrong. She said to us that it was really weird because it never just stopped like that before. My step dad then speaks up and says "I did it". She asked what he meant, he replied that he said a little prayer and asked god for the spirit to leave. I sware on my eyes this is a real story. Since that point I have had no doubt there is a creator that listens to us and a spirit world.

And to reply to the above post, no you do not need two people to use a Ouija board or anything else along those lines.

Supposedly. I've heard of cases of only one being needed. In either case, a second person lends a variable that is hard to take in account: There is no way to tell if the second person is concsiously or unconsciously moving the thing. When we try to limit the variables, having only one person is probably the best route.

If there is board movement when only I am around, then at least I know it was either me unconsciously, or "something else."

I think you might try to 'set the mood' a bit more. You should also take care when using a Quija board, I say this from experience. Try putting a clean crystal cup/bowl full of water and lighting a beeswax candle in the area you have chosen to use. Clean the area of any excess material- nick nacks and such. Using the board without another person is not as productive so it will take longer and require more concentration.

There are better alternatives to using a Quija. It works as an open channel to the 'spirit world'. The bowl of water and fire basically cleanse the spirits coming through- it repels the not so nice. Remember to open and CLOSE the entire ceremony (or whatever you want to call it.)

U2U me if you need more info

Orchid, instead of creating a mood, can you think of any locations that might have the 'mood' built in? I do want to try different locations and see if that has any bearing.

radar- Try using an old table to work on. Houses, in most respects are pretty 'clean' when it comes to spirits. Try the kitchen- usually the busiest part of a house. The 'living room' or great room or whatever is fine also but only if you LIVE in that part of your home. Bedrooms are usually too crowded. The best reception I have ever had was in an old home (50yrs) on a very old table (100yrs) and covering all doors and windows/pictures mirrors. It was in the kitchen.

My house is not even 20 years old, and was built in a previously uninhabitated area. Like I said before ... perhaps it's not a hotspot for spirits. So you suggest an older house?

If you live somewhere out of eye shot- try outside. You will have too many people bothering you if they see you. Walk around an area- the top of the hill has a diffrent feel than the valley and will/should produce diffrent results.

There are lots of things that go into making a successful contact. Age has a big effect. In your teens, and younger you are a little more receptive. You have to be open to spirits, but also guarded against potential nasty ones.

I have had good luck in a brand new house- not even a real house, a boat/guest house on a lake. So the age of your house may not be the factor.

Check the batteries.

Sorry, I love that joke.


For what it's worth, if anything, I recommend being extremely cautious about channeling "unknown energies" or giving out your psychic phone number in general.

Strangers with spiritual candy are not all friendly or interested in your well-being, and bad things can, have and do happen. Ouija boards in particular seem to be particularly attractive to things you probably shouldn't put in your ..

I'm not saying that you shouldn't explore, but you might find a progressive course of study and meditation, followed eventually by exploration, to be a more safe and satisfying road in the long term.

Be true to yourself.

Yes, yes. I've heard the warnings. I have no personal evidence to believe they have any merit. If I had that evidence, I would probably take the warnings more seriously.

Well if you start spinning your . around, projectile vomiting, break-dancing and talking in tongues, just remember I told you so.

The Quija is a medium to use. A way to get to talk to the spirits. Majic is correct in saying that meditation is more effective and MUCH safer.

On the medium- you must think of the quija as the paint and you the canvas, young grasshopper... (I couldn't resist) You have to be receptive, or it won't work well.

Have you tried to contact your spirit guild? They may help you start your experiment.

And, side note here, I have never had the quija pointer thing move on it's own- but I did have a clear, VERY clear indication that there was a spirit in the room.

I kid because I love.


But seriously, respect for what you do not understand is never a bad idea, and when it comes to "evil spirits", discretion is the better part of valor.

Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.

However, if in the course of your experiments you start to experience more than just amusing locomotion of the planchette, I advise extreme caution. The Ouija board can serve as a focus, but it offers no isolation or protection.

Think of it like a motorcycle: fast and fun until you run into something.

Things to be wary of:

- Feelings of being disconnected from your surroundings
- Movement on the periphery of your vision
- Strange and unexplained sounds or worse, whispers or voices
- Foreign thoughts or thinking, especially "disturbing" ones
- Spelling of words that clearly show malicious intent
- Appearance of shadows where shadows should not be

I like to joke a lot about Ouija boards, but some of the side effects are deadly serious. I personally know people who have reported one, more or even all of the symptoms above, along with other potentially even more disturbing events taking place long after they stopped using the board. So please, be careful out there.

In some neighborhoods, it's best to keep the doors locked.

Oh, and one more important word of advice regarding Ouija boards:

Don't believe everything you read.

Good advice in general, but especially pertinent to Ouija boards.

Good luck!

Just the amusing movment of the planchette would be a good start. I haven't experienced any movement.

I noticed you replied to my thread in the prediction board. The vision I did get was after some my experiments. Though, it wasn't directly after -- probably about 8 hours after. I don't think it was related because of the timing difference, but it's interesting to throw out there.

I thought you had to keep trying for about 30 minutes. Then if nothing happens put it away, and try it another night.

So you suggest I extend my Ouija time?

More time spent relaxing may be the ticket. You will want to make sure you aren't feeling distracted, tense or well, too "alert". Your posture when using the board should be relaxed, natural and as comfortable as possible, with everything in easy reach.

Low light, low noise and no disctractions or outside interference are also important. If you have a lot on your mind, you'll want to deal with that first.

Remember that what you are basically doing is allowing an outside intelligence to, however you want to slice it semantically, control your body.


So, if you are hell-bent on submitting bodily control to someone or something you-know-not-what, then your best bet is to loosen up and be as submissive as possible.

I hope by all that is good that the double edge of this advice is not lost on you.

Definitally! And take heed in what Majic told you about 'side effects'. They can really be a large problem if you don't protect yourself well.

It would be quite neat for the planchette
to move a little.

Keep us posted on your experiement!
