Ouija Boards, My Experience
How many of you have ever been told that Ouija boards are dangerous, evil and can open doors/portals to the other side? But what about a pendulum or attempting to conduct your own EVP session? Has anyone ever told you that they too may open doors? Doors that when opened we may never be able to close once the abyss of the unknown has been gazed upon. Why is one considered so evil while the others are not?
Now before everyone gets all fired up let me clarify. I personally do not recommend for anyone to go buy a ouija board or these other items and start trying to communicate with spirits. I believe that making use of any of the three can heighten our own level of awareness, which can lead to some very complicated and sometimes even dangerous situations.
I believe there are spirits around us always. As for portals and doorways ehhhh…I don’t know but I’m open to the possibilities. But here is what I do think…..I think that our acknowledgment of the spirits around us and then taking it a step further by making attempts to communicate with them is what makes it easier for them to interact with us, whether they be good or bad. Some see this as opening a doorway or portal but I believe in actuality we are allowing ourselves to open up to a higher level of awareness.
I personally do not think that Ouija boards are evil or that they automatically allow darkness into our lives simply because we placed our hands upon the planchette. I would further add that at the same time I do not think the Ouija should be taken lightly. It is only a game until our intentions come into play. You may not intend to make contact with an inhuman entity…but you DO have intentions on making communication with something you do not truly understand. Now you may be simply trying to contact good ole Uncle Joe and end up with a not so friendly alternate. Either way YOU had the INTENTIONS….and someone or something chose to take you up on your offer. I honestly do not believe we have the option of only communicating with “good” spirits. After all, we are dealing with the unknown. Who is to say that the “spirit guide” you’ve been communicating with for the past ten years is not in fact something else…something dark waiting for that perfect moment of weakness to make it’s move. If we listen to past studies we are told that inhuman’s will wait months, weeks and even years before presenting itself for what it truly is..
My point is that just as with a Ouija board, when you make use of pendulums or conduct EVP sessions you are saying….”It’s okay, come on in let’s talk” You open yourself to the unknown with intentions of communication and not only allow, but welcome it’s presence.
Many of us in this field have heard numerous stories regarding detrimental experiences with Ouija boards, and I do not doubt that there is some truth to them. But we must not forget that there has also been unfortunate circumstances when teams have conducted paranormal investigations. We go into places where claims have been made, take photographs, conduct EVP session, set up DVR’s and video…..all while attempting and intending on communication of some sort. Many investigators have found themselves leaving the site with a spirit attached to them, I myself have not been immune to this. Does it make what we do evil??? I don’t believe it does, nor do I believe that a Ouija board brings nothing but negative attachments.
In my opinion Ouija boards, pendulums and EVP’s differ in that they are merely different avenues of communication. I do not think any of the three I’ve spoken on bare more darker of a side than the others. I feel that any form of spirit communication can become dangerous if one does not possess knowledge of such things. Not that I’m saying any of us know it all, but I think we can all agree there are various levels of knowledge when it comes to the paranormal field. Obviously a well seasoned investigator will have more knowledge than your 13 year old neighbor trying it out for the first time…or at least I’d hope so. To put it very simply..If you seek, you WILL find…..or perhaps they may just find you. Just remember this is what you wanted…this is what you set your intentions on. You have to be prepared to deal with the consequences of your intentions. Not all experiences have to be bad, but there is always the possibility.
