The Ouija Board is an instrument used for divining information from disembodied spirits. A combination of the French (oui) and German (ja) meaning 'yes'. It is a commercial product presented as half game and half s

I've always pondered about ouija boards...what is so special about letters organised in a shape on a table with a pointer? How can this work? With the risk of sounding daft....if im doin a wordsearch-with my pen subconciously acting as the planchette, am I unwittingly openin myself up to unseen forces? I know it sounds silly like but I hope you see my point :-)

Just received a report to go on the web from our visit to Castle Keep and TC brought up a damn good point that I'd never considered before concerning the Ouija ..

Illiteracy ..

If we head of to somewhere like the Castle Keep and look for spooks - your generally hoping to tag something a few hundred years old as opposed to something in the last 50 / 100 years ..

So when we use the Ouija Board - any old spirit there would likely be illiterate (certainly in most cases), yet we are asking them to spell their name or spell any other details about themselves ..

.. waste of time or what??

the ouija board is one of the easyest methods to attract spirit.
the only problem with the board is that when you open it up you open it to any spirit to come forward, you then have to rely upon what you are receiving and wheter you feel this is a good spirit.
a medium on the other hand has a system of checks to ensure they do not bring through bad spirits.
i do not have a problem with the board but i do like to see it being worked properly and certainly respected.

How about the illiteracy question Eddie ... Could this be why you can sometimes get gibberish?

never found it a problem jay.
spirit finds a way for you to work and understand.
if things are all gibberish then it normally is the quality of the link with spirit.

With regard to the post about spirits that arnt english. All my mothers side of the family are German. My German Grandad passed away when i was 9 and he was communicating with me for a long time using images and signs.

As for the Oiuja Board, i have never tried it. I have always been really weary of it due to bad comments. I think also that im not over confident in using it as i find it really diffictult to close down afterwards, and if there was a negitive entity??...hmmm not sure

I bottled out of it at Bowes!! lol :shock:

with regards to the scientific aprouch to the ouija board & pendulum, they argue that its involentry movements & twitches that make them move..............well my arguement is DOES IT MATTER WHAT MAKES IT MOVE...................... if the board or pendulum give the correct and checkable answers or names it has to be the spirit world, either moving the pendulum/ plancett directly, or causing someone to have involentry movement that in turn move the pendulam/plancett.
my opinion is maybe we should try and come up with a relitives name of someone not actualy sat at the board ,then ask the board for the answer, if its correct, how would you explain that :!:

Whoooooaaaa there!

I think suggesting that spirits force involuntary movements is going a bit far.

One way to test it though is to blindfold the people around the board and then spin the board before they start. That way no one can have any idea where the letters are and anything spelt out correctly cannot be of their own making.

I think that it does matter who or what moves a thing.
In a seance situation if your saying it doesnt matter whoes moving the glass then you cant rule out ideomotor.
Ideomotor is small unconcious movements that come into play when there is suggestion or pre suggestion of a thing happening.

For example, we go to seances and sit round a table. Who sitting round that table isnt willing that glass to move, or the table to move.
After all thats what were all there for.
As for the pendulum i really dont think you can objectively rule out unconcious movements by the person holding it.
If you stand with your arm out, after a while it will begin to tremble, hold it out long enough and it will shake.
Ive had that happen with a camera, after a while of taking pictures my arms start to very slightly tremble, you can see it on some of the pictures i take cos there slightly blurred.

This bit though is a really good idea!
"my opinion is maybe we should try and come up with a relitives name of someone not actualy sat at the board ,then ask the board for the answer, if its correct, how would you explain that"

Pam i think that is a brilliant idea.
I had a similar brain wave with regard to the glass divination.

My thought is that to positively find out if the glass is moving by external forces you need to put the fingers onto the glass with the nail touching the glass.
Therefore you rule out, or almost rule out, anyone actually pushing the glass. Ive tried it and its very difficult to actually make a glass move with your finger upside down, without it being really obvious.

Our group tried this at the keep and the glass didnt move. But then having said that it didnt move at all the other way either LOL

Good points there Pam xx
