A subject that I am often asked about is the Ouija board. People have heard stories that it might be dangerous to use and they would like an opinion from someone who has worked as a psychic medium.
First off any time a person is attempting to connect to spirits there are subject to connecting to positive or negative spirits. If a person does not know how to protect themselves spiritually they are more likely to connect with a negative/evil spirit. These spirits are waiting for vulnerable people.
Anytime a person attempts connection to spirits or paranormal investigation they can experience spiritual attacks. People see this being done on television and it all looks like fun and games. When in reality it is not.
As a teenager my friends and I played around with the Ouija board. We did not take it seriously and just thought of it as something fun to do. I do remember receiving a message, and I was only 13 years old at the time, telling me the name of my future husband. Turned out that was the name of my first husband. I quickly lost interest in it. I guess I just wasn’t attracted to this type of game. At the time I did not feel anything negative or evil coming from it. I think that comes from the fact that it didn’t hold a big fascination for me.
Having worked as a psychic medium and a spiritual advisor I have come in contact with so many people who have had unbelievable experiences using the Ouija board. From what I have heard I do feel that demonic spirits inhabit the seemingly harmless game.
One particular story that stands out in my experiences with clients is a lady who was about 50 years old when I met her. She contacted me because her daughter had committed suicide recently at the age of eighteen. As I delved into the case it turns out that her daughter, at the age of 13, had started using the Ouija board. She told her mother stories of what the Ouija board was telling her to do. She started using LSD in combination with working with the Ouija board. LSD opens a person up into the spirit world and you combine that with the Ouija board and you have quite a demonic cocktail.
This young girl kept using the Ouija board and it started telling her more and more outrageous things to do, which she was acting on. Finally in desperation her mother put her in a psychiatric hospital. It did not help her daughter. After her release from the hospital she continued her activities with the Ouija board. At the time her mother had no belief in the spirit world and did not connect the fact that something demonic was overtaking her daughter. At last the Ouija board told the young girl that she needed to commit suicide and she did. How can this be a harmless game?
That is why her mother reached out to me for help about what had happened to her daughter. Once I explained to her how demonic spirits work it all made sense to her. It’s unfortunate that she did not learn this until after her daughter’s death.
Most people have seen the movie The Exorcist and they think of it is a scary movie. This movie is based on a true story and of course in it a young teenage girl was communicating with the spirit in the Ouija board. She did become possessed by the spirit and it took the Catholic Church to intervene and do an exorcism on her. Remember this was a true story. The Catholic Church has been aware of these demonic forces for centuries and that’s why they are one of the few organized religions that practice exorcisms.
Frequently I do radio or group lectures and when I talk to people about demonic forces they get freaked out and do not want to hear about this. It’s easy to ignore this, but if you have a belief in God you have to understand there is a Devil. Many new age teachings dismiss the fact that there is a Devil. I really feel this is a mistake because if you go through all the ancient teachings there are frequent references to the demonic forces. For example Jesus, while he was on earth, dealt with the Devil and he frequently did exorcisms.
For those who are skeptical about the spirit world of course they’re going to scoff at anything being demonic. I have seen firsthand demonic spirits attach themselves to physical objects. This is not uncommon. That is why I find that the Ouija board can be used by demonic forces. Besides the recounting of the story from one of my clients I have heard countless stories about horrible things happening to people who use the Ouija board.
Now it is even being advertised as a fun game for children. It comes in a pink version for children and this is really pushing unwanted spirits onto vulnerable children.
Unless you practice spiritual protection daily you should not attempt any type of communication with supernatural means. With spiritual protection I am not talking about simple prayers I’m talking about using a multitude of spiritual tools to keep yourself from any type of spiritual attack.
As I mentioned earlier in this article I have worked as a psychic medium for many years. I do not do medium work any longer because I feel it’s far too draining on me. I know how to protect myself, but even with that it is very hard and I leave it up to others who are younger and stronger to carry on working as mediums.
I find helping people find their true spiritual path and guide them through situations is far more rewarding for me. That is why I work as a spiritual advisor.
So before you go out and purchase a Ouija board think about what uninvited guests you may be bringing into your home. This is not a fun filled toy.
If you need any help with understanding spiritual protection are want to understand more about spiritual attachments contact me for my private services and I will go over what you can do to keep yourself protected under any circumstances.
I hope that this article has been helpful to you.
History of the Ouija board
The Ouija board came out of the American 19th century obsession with spiritualism, the belief that the dead are able to communicate with the living. Spiritualism, which had been around for years in Europe, hit America hard in 1848 with the sudden prominence of the Fox sisters of upstate New York; the Foxes claimed to receive messages from spirits who rapped on the walls in answer to questions, recreating this feat of channeling in parlors across the state. Aided by the stories about the celebrity sisters and other spiritualists in the new national press, spiritualism reached millions of adherents at its peak in the second half of the 19th century. Spiritualism worked for Americans: it was compatible with Christian dogma, meaning one could hold a séance on Saturday night and have no qualms about going to church the next day. It was an acceptable, even wholesome activity to contact spirits at séances, through automatic writing, or table turning parties, in which participants would place their hands on a small table and watch it begin shake and rattle, while they all declared that they weren’t moving it. The movement also offered solace in an era when the average lifespan was less than 50: Women died in childbirth; children died of disease; and men died in war. Even Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of the venerable president, conducted séances in the White House after their 11-year-old son died of a fever in 1862; during the Civil War, spiritualism gained adherents in droves, people desperate to connect with loved ones who’d gone away to war and never come home.
In the1890’s the Ouija board was patented and sold as a mystical oracle and family entertainment. It’s quite logical then the board would find its greatest popularity in uncertain times, when people hold fast to belief and look for answers from just about anywhere, especially cheap, DIY oracles.
The 1910s and ’20s, with the devastations of World War I and the manic years of the Jazz Age and prohibition, witnessed a surge in Ouija popularity. It was so normal that in May 1920, Norman Rockwell, illustrator of blissful 20th century domesticity, depicted a man and a woman, Ouija board on their knees, communing with the beyond on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. During the Great Depression, the Fuld Company opened new factories to meet demand for the boards; over five months in 1944, a single New York department store sold 50,000 of them. In 1967, the year after Parker Brothers bought the game from the Fuld Company, 2 million boards were sold, outselling Monopoly; that same year saw more American troops in Vietnam, the counter-culture Summer of Love in San Francisco, and race riots in Newark, Detroit, Minneapolis and Milwaukee. It definitely seems that difficult time’s people turn to supernatural communication.
In recent years, Ouija is popular yet again, driven in part by economic uncertainty and the board’s usefulness as a plot device in popular movies and television programs. It is even being sold in lighted form from just the standard board. So this gives you a little understanding of the history and marketing of the Ouija board.
