No a piece of plastic rubbed on a piece of cardboard manufactured by average humans working in some random factory is not going to let you contact people who's brains are entirely not functioning and decaying. The premise is silly. The credibility is less than weak. And it's nothing more than a fun way to put goosebumps on a persons skin. Leave one in a room full of gullible kids and nothing will happen. Leave one in a room of gullible kids and one prankster and you'll contact a ghost.
Some years ago my best friend and I were with 3 girls who wanted to try that stuff out. Obviously we both are douchebags and ended up both slightly moving the thing which freaked the girls out. Fun times.
But no, I dont believe in it. If there is really such a thing as a connection to a spirit-world, then this board is just unnecessary and only meant to potentially smiplify things.
Years ago me and a friend had done the ouija board asking if something bad was going to happen and we got the numbers 911, which usually means when you call for an emergency. But 2 years later September 11th happened with the terrorist attack, so either one of us was psychic or the board works.
While some douchebags move the planchette so it seems real I do have a few experiences that proves to me it is real when taken seriously. One time in particular; it was my sister, me, my boyfriend at the time and 3 of his buddies. Because there wasn't a lot of room for 6 people to play only 3 of us did. Well a female name was spelt out. It was an ex of one of my bf's buddies. She had died and the guy always felt bad about it but didn't mention it to us before this session with the board. Then it said she was pregnant at the time and it was a boy she was carrying. None of us who were playing knew about this and the guy freaked out and cried. We stopped and we were all in shock. We didn't know much about this guy or his past and for all that to come from the board was spooky.
yes it is real and unless you know exactly what you are doing and the safe guards that need to be in place stay away from it or you could be releasing things from dimensions that have no business being here and things can attach them selves to you and cause harm. I was stupid enough to try to use one and what was contacted would have killed all who were involved if my father had not come home early to catch us and send it back to the pit it came from and all who were involved had to be cleansed with a herbal incense to make sure it did not have a hook on one of us in to our world. not to mention the month I was grounded for and the lectures on not playing with things I have not learnt about
I don't know about the ouija board, but I really do want to try it some day. I believe in spirits and ghosts and other paranormal things. Our family is even convinced that we have one, because we'll see the faint shadow of a man walking around the kitchen and the upstairs hallways at night. I'd be way too afraid of him to use a ouiji board here though! (I think one of the rules is to not use it where someone has died)
