Is the Ouija board a harmless toy or dan

I started out believing we all know our own answers. We just do not wish to accept them. I thought the Ouija board just helped us to access/accept that knowledge. Therefore innocent. Now! I truly believe that the Ouija is a paranormal object that can attach/attract spirits. Benign, loving kind or detrimental, hateful and demonic. I do not mean to be negative but Ouija is "like a box of chocolates you never know what your going to get". I would never bring one into my home again. I would not allow my children to have one.... And yes strange things happen after you "play" with one.

What's the deal? It's wood with paint on it. If a "demon" was "summoned" by it your partner was probably minipulating the planchette to make words or names to freak you out. Get a grip.

IT WAS RIGHT

My high school chum, Louise and I played with it one afternoon in my mom's house. We asked the usual questions. Will we marry? Said Yes. Happily? Yes for me, no for her. Turned out true. Children? One each, true. We got scared and quit cause its pointer started going in wild circles.

Be Careful What You Wish For

My advice to anyone wanting to or thinking about using the ouija board is simple: DONT. Unless you have extensive knowledge about entities, spirits and the paranormal, then LEAVE IT ALONE. It is not a game. Also worth thinking about is the fact that if you are foolish enough to use the ouija board, without at least going through the proper channels, then YOU are and will be potentially putting your friends, family and loved ones in danger also. Please DONT DO IT, be careful what you wish for.....you might just get it, and a whole load more.

Ouija: Evil or Good?

The Ouija is a tool of divination. In it's self, it is neither evil or good, but nuetral. It is the intent of the users and the energy of the users. If the users are in a negative state of mind, that is what will come forth. Though I do feel that one who isn't experienced with any form of divination should work with other forms first. Trust me when I say that if those who have crossed over want to contact you, they will. If a spirit has a message for you, they WILL get it to you with or without a Ouija board. They will contact you directly or they will find some way of getting their message across to you. I agree with the main article that it's like a chat room. I feel that one's Ouija experience is what one makes it. If you don't know how to deal with spirits, then leave them alone. Also be prepared for what ever may happen and make the most of it.

My daughters father speaks to her

In 2001 my husband died unexpectedly. My youngest daughter was 14at the time and asked me to get her a Ouija. The answers, predictions and comfort it brought her was an amazement to the many friends and family members who witnessed it.

Rik and Jasral

Before my daughter was born I made my own Quija board and played by myself. I met a young man who died in a Harem (Rik) and he would quote me lovely poems. I asked him to talk to my distant boyfriend for me and he said he would "whisper in his ear" to visit me at 12:02 the next night. I was sitting up after midnight in anticpation when exactly at 12:02 their was a knock at the door and it was my boyfriend. That also was the night I conceived. In time Rik quit talking to me, as another entity (Jasral) came on the board saying she was Rik's girlfriend and she would "kill me." He said he was worried for me so he could not talk to me anymore. When he wanted to quit talking he would say the "rope was getting short". In time he quit coming onto the board and I quit using it. Other characters would come on and say they were him but I knew they weren't. What an interesting character. Although my relationship didn't last I had a beautiful daughter and I thank Rik for that.

fear

I feel the ouija is a dangerous portal and am very terrified of them. I will not allow one any where near me or my family. To me they are a doorway for evil to cross through into our world and we have enough evil in our world already.

Ouija Opinion

As a child, I played with a ouija board with friends at slumber parties. My parents bought a board for me when I was around 12 years old. I never had any uncomfortable events when using the board and abandoned it within a few months. I am almost 50 now and I have experienced many paranormal events, inclusive of demonic entities. I believe that demonic entities do not need an invitation to attack the living but since ouija has a reputation for being a communication portal between the living and the dead or the supernatural, it is not a toy. I feel that with a channel that is as vast as a ouija board, what comes through may not be a demonic and dangerous presence. Evil does not need an invitation or any other recognition. REFRAIN FROM USING OUIJA BOARDS. THEY ARE NOT MEANT TO BE TOYS.

Ouija board is wicked

I played with the ouija board with a boyfriend of mine. after my boyfriend left for work, things got weird! light's started flicking on and off at the apartment, the blender turned it's self on and i got a phone call from a self pronouced devil whorpisher asking me if I wanted to join!!! if that wasn't bad enough i was really shook up so i took the ouija board outside and threw it in the dumpster. i went back to my apartment settled down and 15 minutes later i heard a thump inside my closet, i thought something fell off the shelf so i opened the closet door and screamed. laying at my feet was the ouija board that i had just thrown away in the dumpster!!!!I have never picked up a ouija board since and never will!!!! sleep tight. please don't mess with one they are very dangerous.

Entrance

The ouija that moves by itself is an entity and a living mental force. It is not a game for kids nor a plaything at all. It should be left to those who know what it is and how to interpret its actions
