In recent years,
It is a very controversial topic that instantly creates polarizing views among people who have used it and secular-humanistic "non-believers" who have no experience with it, but like to poke fun out of it because of the incredulity of all things that fall outside the worldview of the mainstream-approved blue pill version of reality. Over the past few years, I've worked with helping many people who have gotten into a world of hurt through experimentation in several different facets of the occult - particularly concerning ouija boards.
Of all the different branches of the occult and tools that are out there, I firmly believe that this particular tool - the ouija board- is at the top of the list in terms of danger to the general public.
The purpose of this article is to give a comprehensive outlook on the spiritual dynamics at play behind the ouija board and to give the reader deeper insights into understanding exactly how and why it works and why underestimating its danger is a big mistake. The secondary purpose is to undo all the misinformation and brainwashing you've received from years of Hollywood propaganda, superstitions, and lies.
As you'll soon find out, understanding lies and deception are fundamental to understanding the ouija board - because those are the tools of the trade by which so many people are enslaved to it.
I am not in the business of propaganda or brainwashing.
The information you'll find below is not something I invented for fun or came across after a weekend of researching the Internet. Its been hard fought over years of battling this pandemic in the front lines and witnessing every angle of a problem that most people want absolutely nothing to do with. If you have differing beliefs, I respect your opinion and your right to believe whatsoever you choose to believe.
However, that being said, I stand firmly by my words and promise to speak only in terms of truth and stay away altogether from speculation or baseless theory. Without further adieu, let's dive right into it.
So what exactly is the great "secret" behind the ouija board?
The great secret is this - The spirits that the users are communicating with are NOT deceased humans or "ghosts".
They are demons. When a person uses the board (regardless of whether its a fancy decorated one they got off Amazon or a ghetto handmade one they drew with sharpie on a cardboard box) and manages to communicate with a spirit, this event permanently opens a doorway that allows a demonic spirit legal access into the person's life. From that point onwards, the victim has opened themselves up to a whole range of possible outcomes including but not limited to
- poltergeist activity in the home where the person is staying (regardless of whether or not they move)
- hearing voices
- full on possession
- waking up to cuts or burn marks on their body
- visual hallucinations of phantoms or "ghosts"
- becoming increasingly drawn to other facets of the occult
It has NOTHING to do with communicating with the dead or anything of the sort.
The dead are six feet under and know absolutely nothing. The day a person dies, their knowledge, their feelings, and their ability to communicate die with them. Understanding this fact is critical because it shines a light on so many false religious and occult systems that exist in the world today that entice participants with the lie that it is possible for the living to make contact with the deceased.
Now that you know the WHAT, let's dive into all the gory details surrounding the HOW. Understanding how and why something works is crucial to gaining insight into the consequences it produces.
The Art of Seduction Through an Elaborate Matrix of Lies and False Promises
Like any good lie that can effectively be used to enslave, you need to mix in a fair bit of truth and false hope in order to propagate it and draw people into it. The forces at work behind the ouija board are well aware of this and they do a very good job of dangling a tantalizing juicy bait at the end of their hook in order to ensure that people will be drawn into the occult.
From the beginning of time, death has always been somewhat of a mystery to man. It often invokes a strong desire within the human heart to continue to remain in contact with their loved one long after they have given up the breath of life. It is impossible to achieve such a thing, but that is besides the point. The point is that demons are well aware of this fact and have come up with some very clever ways of capitalizing on this innate human desire. In order to deceive men into giving them varying degrees of worship and authority over their lives that they otherwise wouldn't have, they have created many different systems of lies that are designed to achieve this end goal. At the heart of each lie is the false promise that "if you do XYZ, you will attain the object of your desires".
The object in question can vary greatly from wealth, sex, psychic powers, the ability to communicate with the dead, to the promise of godhood and immortality. In some aspects, such as wealth, sex, and psychic powers, demons do have the ability to follow through and deliver on their promises. In other aspects such as godhood or immortality, they cannot deliver but will offer it anyway to anyone who's willing to buy into it. The occult is a huge topic and the volume of information is so huge you wouldn't even be able to fit it into a single library. For the scope of this article, I will do my best to stay focused on how it applies to ouija boards and try not to get sidetracked.
As with every other occult art, the promise of communication with the dead lies on a matrix of lies. At the heart of this matrix, is this fundamental lie:
The human consciousness lives on as a ghost after death and it is possible to make contact with it through occult means such as a ouija board, seance, or medium.
Once you pluck out this pivotal lie, the whole thing falls like a house of cards. Upon this pivotal lie is built an elaborate system of lies and superstitions designed to enslave the believer. I'll list a few of them below...
Accessory Lies that Build off the Fundamental Lie
- The ouija board is a tool that can be used to contact the spirits of the deceased.
- Spirits are somehow bound to a set of arbitrary, irrelevant 'rules' such as "You must say goodbye at the end of every ouija board session"
- You can discern whether or not a spirit is good or malevolent by asking it some silly question like "Do you stand in the light?" and they are somehow obligated to answer truthfully
- If you give in to its requests and favors and speak kindly, the spirit you are contacting will somehow "rest in peace" and therefore won't hurt you
A great deal of calculated effort is made in the demonic realm to keep this system of lies alive and well in the hearts of men and I will go into further detail of how this is done below...
Many people who have used the ouija board to contact a dead family member/friend/relative/whatever will often attest to the following:
"I asked Aunt Sally a question that ONLY SHE would know the answer to and the spirit responded back with the correct answer. Therefore, Aunt Sally is a ghost and is talking to me!"
(And there in lies the heart of the deception.)
After all if a spirit communicates information that ONLY person A would know, that proves that the entity is person A, right?? Wrong.
How the Demonic Realm Operates
The truth is demonic spirits rarely if ever manifest in our physical plane. Meaning under normal circumstances, you cannot see or hear them. That doesn't mean they aren't present. There is no shortage of demons in this world. They outnumber humans by a large margin. And unlike humans who have a limited lifespan, a limited attention span, and a plethora of human needs to worry about in our day to day lives, demons have none of those limitations. They don't die of old age and they don't have to worry about paying bills, grinding to put food on the table, or any of the other basic things we spend our whole lives working for.
They spend 100% of their time involved in messing with humanity in one way or another for the sole purpose of the destruction of the human race. They are also far more knowledgeable about the dynamics of our physical world and human nature as a whole. As far as they are concerned, our scientific knowledge and understanding of physics and the material world is medieval and stone age in comparison to what they know.
In terms of intelligence, their collective IQ and knowledge far transcends human comprehension. In comparison to their intellect, Einstein would appear to be a retarded, dyslexic chimp.
On top of that, they have a vast array of abilities that I'm not going to delve into at this time. Despite all their wonderful abilities, there is a catch... they are not completely free to do as they wish on the Earth nor are they free to indiscriminately possess people or mess around with humans willy nilly. If they had the ability to completely take over and possess a person just walking down the street for no reason, THEY WOULD.
Understanding Entry Points
One of the keys to understanding how demons operate in regards to humans is that a demon needs an entry point in order to gain legal access to an individual. These gates, entry points, portals, whatever you would prefer to call them are opened up when a person commits varying acts of evil. The amount of "legal right" that a demon has over an individual varies greatly depending on the type of acts and the gravity of the acts they commit. Of the the greatest entry points available to them is direct or indirect worship through occult means. While the occult in itself opens doorways into a person's life, I specifically chose to focus this article on the ouija board in particular for several reasons.
- Among all occult practices, the ouija board ranks VERY HIGH in terms of direct tangible consequences and physical danger to the user
- In recent years, there has been an outbreak of massive proportions of people blowing open the gates for demonic possession and infestation because of the popularization of the ouija board through Hollywood movies, and several high profile YouTube stars with millions of subscribers promoting it to their fans. What was once a relatively small scale problem is blowing up exponentially due to the newfound interest in the mainstream public.
- There are mountains and mountains of myths and disinformation about the nature of the board itself, the consequences for using it, and what is going on behind the scenes when one chooses to use it
I hope that in creating this article, I may be able to shed light on a subject shrouded in mystery, cultural superstitions, and lies.
Before I can fully explain the spiritual mechanics of the ouija board, I had to provide you with a foundation of how things work "behind the scenes". Understanding the mechanics and mentality behind how demons operate is critical to understanding the ouija board. Without this underlying knowledge, you are open to all kinds of superstitions and myths that are rooted in lies that are engineered to deceive and destroy.
How Demonic Spirits Impersonate the Dead
There are 2 reasons why demons are able to so perfectly mimic and impersonate deceased human beings with such finesse and perfection.
1. Under normal circumstances, at birth, each person has demonic spirits assigned to them.
The quantity and category of demons assigned to a particular individual vary greatly on a large number of factors - the primary one being the activities the blood descendants were involved in. Over the course of a person's life, these spirits observe everything that person does and everyone they come into contact with. After a while, they develop a pretty keen sense of the individual's likes, dislikes, preferences, strengths, and weaknesses. For normal people who have no involvement in the occult, the individual is completely oblivious to this and the amount of demonic involvement is often limited to mere surveillance and implanting mental suggestions and thoughts. For persons who are directly involved in the occult or have generations of occult blood running in their veins, they will have more powerful high ranking demons assigned that may endow the individual with a variety of occult powers from early childhood. These can vary greatly from the ability to "see spirits and talk to ghosts" to various psychic abilities that allow the user to more effectively commune with spirits, have higher rates of success out of rituals, or even indirectly cause physical harm to persons of their choice through psychic means. It also comes with a fair share of drawbacks such as a far greater risk of mental illness, the psychological torment of being subjugated to the constant demands and harassment of the spirits that are enabling them to do these seemingly miraculous works, and of course the risk of becoming continually pushed to new lengths of insanity.
2. These demons have a communication network that far surpasses any technology of man.
While a demon is neither omniscient, or omnipresent, they can quickly and easily gather intelligence about a person through this network and relay it at lightning fast speeds. This adds to the effectiveness of the facade they create when attempting to impersonate a deceased person. This network is often used to manipulate the living in various ways, but that is beyond the scope of this article.
When you understand these two principles, the mystery behind how a demon is able to so effectively masquerade as a human you know and love and are attempting to communicate with through the ouija board becomes clear. Given the vast quantity of demons in the world and the fact that they can only be in one place at one time, it is highly unlikely that the spirit you conjure up through a ouija board happens to be the exact same spirit that was assigned to the person you are attempting to communicate with.
Without their communication network, this would be a major problem because in order to give appropriate answers to the target's questions, the demon in question would have to know pretty much everything about the deceased person, including everything they've done in secret. Because of their highly sophisticated and superior communication network, this problem can be quickly overcome. When the recipient asks a question, the spirit in question can tap into this network and get all the intelligence he requires to answer appropriately and put up an extremely convincing front.
However, this facade is not perfect and I'll demonstrate why in a moment. Even if you don't want to take what I'm saying at face value, there are other ways of proving with 100% certainty that dear old aunt Sally is NOT who she claims to be.
If you're dead set on believing that ghosts of the deceased really do exist, take this into consideration... If a relative or friend really loved you, would they attempt to hurt you, mislead you, or ruin your life? Of course not!
Whether you're contacting a supposed "ghost of the dead" through a ouija board, a medium, or a different occult channel, the same situation tends to play out over and over again....
The moment you attempt to stop communicating with the spirit, cease giving in to their demands, and make attempts to remove yourself from the world of the occult, the spirit has a tendency to aggressively start causing mayhem and paranoia in your life in one way or another. What kind of true loved one would do such a thing??
Unspoken Contracts and Implicit Agreements
When you contact an entity through the ouija board, whether you know it or not, you have entered into an unspoken legal agreement with this entity that gives it certain rights over you. In order to illustrate this, I'll use an analogy. It's not a perfect analogy in terms of covering every nuance and individual case, but it gets the job done.
The Worst Deal Ever Made
Imagine a hobo off the street offered you the following deal - In exchange for giving him 24/7 access to your house with no accountability whatsoever, he'll agree to talk to you while he's there. As per the deal, he can come by at any hour of the day and do whatever he wants in your house, provided he answers any question you ask him while he's home. He is permitted to lie to you, give nonsensical answers that make no sense, contradict himself, or even blatantly refuse to answer your questions. As long as he sticks to his end of the bargain and gives a response of any kind to your endless stream of probing questions, he is free to do as he pleases with your house. He can even invite a bunch of his friends over, throw a party and trash it, and leave you to clean up the mess. And get this.. here's the kicker. Once you let him in once, he has a license to drop by and do as he pleases whenever he wants for the rest of his life, regardless of whether or not you're interested in talking to him. And you have absolutely no legal right to impede him or tell him otherwise.
Doesn't that sound like a mighty fine deal?
I bet you're just dying to sign up.
Of course, no sane person would willingly agree to such an absurd one sided deal and entrust a stranger with their life and livelihood to gain nothing of any real value in return. The analogy isn't perfect but its quite similar to what happens when you make contact with a spirit through a ouija board. Whether or not you understand the fine print of whats happening is irrelevant; you've entered yourself into a contractual agreement that gives the entity in question the legal right to come mess with your house, except the "house" in question is your own body and mind!
If the true purpose of the board was made plain, no one would volunteer to sign up for such a crappy one sided deal. The only way they can get such massive numbers of people to participate is through their elaborate matrix of lies. When you peel back the lies and look behind the mask, you come to realize that the shiny promise of a continued relationship with a deceased loved one is nothing more than a false hope that opens a gateway to a world of torment and misery.
The Most Common Symptoms of Demonic Infestation
Hearing voices in their head
These sounds and voices can range from soft muffled barely audible voices that appear to come from the surrounding environment, to whispers in the victim's ear, to full on high decibel screaming. To make matters worse, these noises will often only be heard by the intended victim. This is done intentionally to alienate the victim from the people around them and drive them mad. Imagine clutching your ears in pain after hearing someone screaming at the top of their lungs in your ear, only to have a trusted friend or family member sitting next to you hear absolutely nothing. When you try to explain what you you're hearing, the people around you will report hearing nothing and suggest that you're going insane and in need of psychiatric treatment. It is my belief that a significant percentage of people locked up in psychiatric wards for schizophrenia or "hearing voices" are in fact legitimate victims of demonic oppression. I'm not saying mental illness doesn't exist or that this is true in EVERY case, but it must be true for a fair share of cases, given how widespread this epidemic is and how often it is swept under the rug by mainstream medical professionals have no idea how to properly treat it. Once an individual is labelled "mentally ill" for hearing voices, its nigh impossible for anyone to give any credence to whatever they have to say.
Seeing visual hallucinations of Spectors or "Ghosts"
I had Roseligh - one of the girls I worked extensively with who had used the board from childhood on - write this next bit to explain what this looks like from her perspective.
Roseligh: "From early childhood, I've been able to talk to what I thought were ghosts or spirits. My mother played the ouija board on a regular basis and was already involved in the occult so this wasn't much of a shock to her, as she had the same abilities. Other kids would often accuse me of having imaginary friends, but there was nothing imaginary about it from my point of view. Everywhere I go I see spirits. They don't look like the typical ghost you'd see in a Hollywood movie. To me, they appear as tiny orbs of light no larger than a period. There have been a few rare instances where they took on a completely different form. Eight years ago, my brother had committed suicide by hanging himself in our basement. He was going through severe depression and had gotten out of a horrible relationship, but none of us ever thought he would take it that far. We still live in the same house in Baltimore. In the years following, there have been several instances where I was alone in that basement either playing around with the board by myself when suddenly the air would get cold around me and a figure would manifest in front of my eyes that looked exactly like the grim reaper - complete with a hood, cloak, and scythe. This has happened 4 times so far (not all of them involving a ouija board), and each experience was terrifying beyond belief. I would scream and bolt up the stairs to get the attention of my mother and my 2 sisters. After I had calmed down, we'd all go downstairs with our flashlights and pistols drawn and our fingers on the trigger ready to fire away but the figure would be long gone by then."
A compulsive need to go back to the board
Once a person been spiritually tainted by opening themselves up to demonic infestation, it will stimulate a desire within them to return to the board over and over. This addictive pattern is both psychological and spiritual in nature. The person may rationalize returning to playing it out of curiosity after they have had success in contacting a spirit and receiving favorable answers. In other cases, even after the person has experienced repeated demonic manifestations of a sinister nature such as audible and visual hallucinations, having objects in their home move or fall over randomly, or even experience full on possession (signs that should convince any rational person to stop), they will STILL feel the need to return to using the board. Regardless of rationality or reason, there is a very real thrill or rush involved with all things paranormal, and this object is no different. In other cases, people falsely believe that if they "make amends" with the spirit and beg it to go away or give into some of its demands, it will leave it alone. This is based on the false presupposition that the entity they are communicating with is the deceased spirit of a dead human being who is haunting them. In reality, they are demons who love and crave the slow process of psychologically breaking down their victims.
Paranormal/Poltergeist Activity in the Victim's Place of Residence
This can sometimes be linked to a specific property or it can be linked to a specific individual. What's unique about this symptom is that unlike some of the other ones (such as voices or hallucinations), everyone in the surrounding area will be able to see and hear it going on. Here's a list of some of the creepy stuff I've had the pleasure of seeing over the years.
- certain rooms in a house that are "haunted", randomly in the middle of the night ear shattering screeches and banging noises will come out of the room(s)
- the victim being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night while sleeping or being pushed back/assaulted at any hour of the day within the house
- waking up with scars, scratches, burn marks, hand prints on various parts of the victim's body
- doors and windows randomly opening and shutting despite being locked
- cupboards randomly opening and household objects falling over with no apparent cause
- sudden drastic drops in temperature
- household objects such as lightbulbs, pictures, ornaments being launched across the room with such immense force and violence that they create massive dents or holes in the wall or floor. Being in the moment and seeing this happen was one of the most terrifying things I've ever experienced.
Full on Possession
This can go down in a couple of different ways - total loss of motor control over a limb or complete loss of control over the victim's consciousness and their entire body. Contrary to Hollywood movies, the possessed person's eyes don't necessarily roll back inside their head and cause them to start growling like a feral animal - although that can happen in some instances.
In most cases, it is far, FAR more subtle and much more creepy witnessing it live in person. The victim will have a glazed look in their eyes, go completely silent, and sit still for the most part. Attempts to interact with the victim are met with either silence or extreme verbal aggression. The victim will start babbling incoherently, laughing hysterically, and make repeated attempts to hurt themselves.*
(*This is the only type I've ever seen. I've heard of a few much more intense and violent experiences from others.)
Very rarely is there ever any vomiting, howling, or running around like a deranged animal (at least not in Western countries where household occultism is limited). In countries like Haiti, where voodoo, cultural spiritism, and communion with demons under the guise of ancestral worship is heavily integrated into the mainstream culture, its much MUCH more common to see these more extreme forms of insane demonic possession just walking down the street.
If you don't have a weak stomach, and you want to see a glimpse of what goes on at a public ceremony in voodoo-dominated Haiti, check out this YouTube video someone posted on a trip there. When the spirit takes over the individual, they experience a very ecstatic "high" comparable to hardcore drugs. It takes control of their body and derives pleasure from degrading the person by causing them to roll around in filth and howl like a deranged animal. This high is reported to be very intense and is part of the reason why these people continue to participate in these rituals. If you think this is only limited to the poor, stupid, and uneducated, you're dead wrong. Bill Clinton writes in his own memoir how he has great respect for the voodoo religion of Haiti and how he craves the high he experiences when the spirits enter his body. These are the words of a former president of the united States of America.
The complete possessed state is temporary and lasts anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Afterwards, the victim has absolutely no memory whatsoever of what he or she said or did when they were in the possessed state. I've noticed an overwhelming correlation of this occurring mostly at nighttime and the early hours before dawn, although it is possible for it to happen during the day as well.
Factors that Exacerbate and Worsen the Problem
Roman Catholic "blessings"
Watch any Hollywood movie that involves demon possession and what do you see? You see a Roman Catholic priest conducting a magickal ritual of exorcism in an effort to cast the demon out of the person. Plenty of crosses, throwing lots of holy water, asking the demon all kinds of questions about its origins, and chanting verses out of a book over and over. This has been done intentionally over the past decades in every major demon possession themed blockbuster thats hit the theaters in order to nail it into the minds of the public that the Roman church holds the authority to subdue the demonic. The process is often portrayed as extremely gruesome and excruciatingly painful with the victim rolling around on the floor in a feral state, coughing up bodily fluids, and howling maniacally.
You will never ever see a Bible believing Christian attempting to cast out a demon in the name of Jesus in any major blockbuster film.
When secular minded people (often teenagers) go to a slumber party or meet up with a bunch of their friends and decide to play around with a ouija board or hold a seance and wind up with a severe case of demonic infestation of their home or body, where do they usually turn to for help? The Roman Catholic church. Because its been ingrained into their mind by the media that it is the definite authoritative force against all problems related to the demonic.
I've got nothing against Catholics. In fact I was raised Catholic myself and spent 18 years of my life in that cult. Regardless of what your religious beliefs may be, I'm going to issue this warning to you in advance. You can choose to ignore it if you want, but you'll find out that I'm right the hard way.
If you yourself or someone you know is being haunted by a spirit as a result of messing around with a ouija board or another branch of the occult, one of the WORST things you can do for your problem is seek help from the Roman Church.
DO NOT have a priest come over and "bless" your house.
DO NOT have a priest come over and celebrate a Mass in your home.
Do NOT have a priest conduct a ritual of exorcism over you or another person.
Although most priests are good willed and sincere in their belief, whether they know it or not, they are deriving their spiritual power from a source that is entirely based off the principles of the occult and by extension demonic in nature. Catholicism, at its roots, is nothing more than an occult religion with a Christian mask. If you attempt to use this route to solve your problem, it will only get MUCH WORSE for you. That is my personal guarantee. I've seen it happen over and over and over and over again.
It usually plays out like this...
1. Person plays around with the occult and winds up with demonic infestation in one form or another. This problem is completely new to them and they have no idea how to tackle it, so they run head over heels to the Catholic church.
2. Priest comes over, "blesses" the house with holy water, maybe does a Mass, maybe reads a ritual out of the Rituale Romanum (the Catholic exorcism book).
3. Priest leaves. The problem APPEARS to go away for a finite period of time ranging from a few days to a few weeks.
4. After a few days/weeks of peace and calm when the individual has had a chance to acclimate to a regular life and is feeling relieved of their burden, the demonic oppression comes crashing down with a vengeance full force, even harder than before.
5. The individual is at a total loss for words and falls into despair and misery after having seemingly exhausted all their options.
The fundamental reason why getting the Catholic church involved will only exacerbate the problem is because it is a religion that is heavily rooted in pagan occultism. Occultism and magic both derive their power from the demonic realm. Attempting to use one form of occultism (a Catholic exorcism) to cure a problem caused by another form of occultism (the ouija board) is like trying to put out a forest fire by dousing it in gasoline.
Seeking help from the ouija board
Other than the Catholic church, the other dumb mistake that people often make is going back to the ouija board seeking a solution to their problems. Again, this if because they are firmly rooted in the lie that their problem was created by upsetting some ghost of a deceased human. They falsely believe that in order to remedy the problem, they must re-initiate contact with this ghost and offer up either an apology or something else in return in exchange for being left alone. This is akin to granting a hobo the right to live in your house and eat your food only to politely ask him down the road what you need to do to get him to leave. He doesn't want to leave. He enjoys making himself at home, and so does the spirit who you nonchalantly invited into your life. Again... dousing gasoline on a fire. Its never going to help. It can only do more damage.
Highly Susceptible Targets
Out of the general population, there are certain sub-categories of people that are more likely than others to get involved with this creepy stuff and become enslaved to it. This is like a spiritual virus of sorts that can be passed on from person to person. I'll elaborate on what I mean below...
Individuals with multiple generations of occult blood
If you have blood parents or grandparents who played around with the ouija board or messed around with witchcraft, satanism, or other occult arts, you are what I would call a "high risk individual". If you have multiple generations of this in your family line, you are a VERY high risk individual. Often times, these people don't have to be introduced to the occult. The occult will inevitably find them, often from a very early age. Many people in this category have reported being able to communicate with spirits or see spirits from a young age. If they do choose to start practicing the occult later in life, they will discover that they have a much higher success rate with getting results out of it than your average person with no generational occult blood running in their veins. This is because at the time of their birth, they inherited the generational spirits of their forefathers - a hereditary curse or sorts that is passed along by those who commune with demons. It really is unfortunate because the individual had no say in the matter of what their parents or grandparents chose to do with their lives.
Victims of childhood sexual abuse
Like the previous category, albeit to a lesser extent, these people are walking lightning rods for demonic influences. In recent years, it has become a widespread epidemic in the western world and the world at large and is partly to blame for the sudden dramatic popularization of mainstream interest in occult arts. Its a huge tragedy and I can't even imagine how incredibly broken and betrayed those poor souls must feel mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Practitioners of witchcraft, satanism (both softcore and hardcore), and private practitioners of other occult arts (religious and non-religious)
Unlike the previous 2 categories, if this is you, you kind of brought it on yourself mate. I'm not going to blame you or lecture you on how to live but... it is what it is. For what its worth I will say that the majority of street legal occult based religions out there, as spiritually toxic as they may be, are nowhere near as dangerous as ouija boards. The reality is the average person is far more likely to wind up possessed or haunted casually playing around with a homemade ouija board than they are reading tarot cards or messing around with "white witchcraft".
Ouija boards are on a whole different level in terms of immediate danger to both the average individual and the people they are living with, especially given their widespread availability and the short amount of exposure time needed to end up with severe life altering consequences.
If you've made it to the end of this
5000+ 6,000+ word article, you'll notice that I didn't mention much in terms of solutions to the problem. Rather than write another 10,000 words on that, I chose to use this article solely as a means of shedding light on the inner workings of a widespread, much misunderstood growing problem across the world. Rather than just tell you "It's bad, don't do it!", I took the long route to show you what goes on behind the scenes and explain why this tool is as dangerous as it is. I have worked with countless people who have been involved in one way or another with the ouija board and there is a process that can be undergone to rid oneself of the problem. But that's another topic for another day.
If you got nothing else out of this, take this - Don't indulge your curiosity and play around with ouija boards.
It's not worth it.
It has serious lifelong consequences that cannot be fixed easily. Its like choosing to have unprotected sex with a $10 hooker. Sure, you might get out of it without any major harm... or you could wind up with a deadly STD that alters the course of your life forever. If you're still in a state of suspended disbelief and its too big of a pill to swallow, at least do your research and look into the testimonies and mistakes of other people who have already wrecked their own lives before you jump headfirst into something you're not prepared to deal with.
