The Ouija Board and you

Playing around with the famous Ouija board with your friends on Halloween or at a weekend party may sound like lots of fun, and perhaps even a bit thrilling. Right? But, if you don't know what you are doing it could go wrong very quickly, and you could end up opening a door that can not just be closed after Halloween.

The Ouija board is often used to communicate with spirits from the spirit realm, sometimes it's family trying to establish a communication with their loved ones, and other times users are attempting to make contact with any spirit that is willing to make contact with the living. But like any other loop hole into the spirit realm the Ouija board is not special in any terms, it could allow other spirits to make contact as well.

Some of these other spirits may not be as nice as the ones you are trying to contact and most of them will lie to you to gain your trust. Some Ouija users have reported getting an unfriendly spirit attached to them. This is not something you want. you don't want any spirit attached to you.

This should not be considered a fun party game, but if you must experiment with this mysterious board, here is a few things to keep in mind. 




1) Any spirit establishing contact with you may not be who they say they are. 

In a world more crazier, more intense and more unpredictable than ours, there is no way to have caution. Anytime you try to make contact with the other side you are at immediate risk of spiritual problems.

You can make contact with a spirit, but will only know what that spirit tells you. Are you willing to take the risk of some unknown entity from a completely different dimension being honest with you? You don't even know if this spirit is human or inhuman. 

2) It's NOT what you expect. 

No matter what you think you know about the almighty Ouija board, just go ahead and disregard all of the nightmarish stereotypes portrayed in shows and films. You and your friends are not gonna see a bunch of dark mist come pouring out of the board as you attempt to make contact. Most of the time nothing at all will happen, but one wrong move could open a door that may never be closed.

3) It's a dangerous game (within the spirit realm) 

If you are a spiritual person and like an edgy way of establishing contact between you and the spirit world the almighty Ouija may just be for you, but if you and your friends are just looking for a quick Halloween or a weekend thrill ride then you might want to look elsewhere. There could be some not so nice spirits that might be attempting to use the board to make contact, and they will often lie to you in order to gain your trust.


No matter what your purpose is for using the Ouija board, be sure to approach it with extreme caution. If you are using it in your friends house, make sure you inform everybody in the house, when using this board it presents a great risk of summoning spirits, and the last thing you want is for some unwanted spirits living with your friend.

Also during Ouija sessions, very strange things can happen.
