  • A lot of 19th and early 20th century occultists took the ouija board very seriously. Frater Achad, Paul Foster Case and Alcester Crawley all experimented extensively with the 'oracle', and it's believed John Deer used a similar device.

    There is a book called 'Alcester Crawley and the Ouija Board' which covers their experiments in depth, although I u derstand it takes a pretty liberal approach to the truth, lol. It's mission statement is also to show how to practice it in a 'thelemic' way, as opposed to a 'spiritist' way, which mostly means using it for something specific and not just opening the door for its own sake. It seems like you don't have anything specific in mind, so it'd be next to useless for you. (It also advocates a method that seems to me to make the board completely redundant- that you should banish, evoke a spirit, use the ouija board to communicate, and then banish again - why, then, use the board at all? Wouldn't a regular evocation suffice, at that point?)

    So bringing up the book was pointless but I thought it was interesting, lmao.

    As for should you do it, I guess so. Read about it a lot before you do it. Read about how to safety communicate with spirits and about how the board actually works - it's not being moved by ghosts. There is no empirical link between the movement on the board and the spirit world, in the same way there is no empirical link between the shuffling of a deck of cards and our inner selves, nor between the movement of distant planets and the structure of our personalities, and there never will be. Nonetheless the tarot and astrology are *indispensibly* important - I really mean that - and extremely useful. Why? I don't know. But perhaps there are similar mysteries to the ouija.

    My problem with the Oracle boards I guess is... why use them? There are much better ways to contact spirits. What use does the board have, which seems only to contain the limitless expressive capabilities of spirits to spelling with letters and numbers? Spirits that can already communicate verbally, visually, physically, sensationally, and in undescribable, ineffable ways? Maybe I am missing something.

    http://www.livescience.com/41859-ouija-board.html (an article explaining it's function, the ideomotor effect - direct communication with the unconscious, huh? Sounds pretty powerful after all...)

    Anyway, good luck and stay safe.

  • Not really. I wanted to as well but one of my old friends freaked the fuck out when I told them that and started lecturing me about using sage and doing it properly and 'do you even know how dangerous that is?' so now I'm not really planning on it :P

  • Don't just fuck around.

    First ask for its number
    Then take it out to dinner
    Then you can fuck around with it. I'm sure the ghosts will appreciate being wined and dined.

  • Now, I'm not exactly very superstitious, and I believe 99% of ghost stories are fake (lies or explained with logic). I mean, chances are there is a person who died in almost every spot we've been in given the human race's history. It could even be 100%, although I find some hard to explain.

    You'd imagine there'd be more spirits if they actually existed in the traditional sense. I mean, it's not like spirits die for some reason lol. Instead, most of em seem to be from the last 500 years. Why would that be? (This is just a random thought I had)

    Nevertheless, a Ouija Board is almost certainly complete bullcrap. Chances are it'll do absolutely nothing. However, given as I cannot, with complete certainty, guarantee that it will be 100% safe, I would not use it. From that, I suggest not to use it yourself.

  • And why would it be bad? Do you seriously believe in all that paranormal nonsense perpetuated by hollywood and various other similar media?

    C'mon, it's been debunked a long time ago.

    It's been long debunked as an "ideomotor effect" or "ideomotor phenomenon".

    It's all delusion and in your head. If you do mess around with it and found something substantial and concrete to be proven otherwise why not record it all onto video and broadcast or livestream it to everyone then?

    If you want to play with it, it's entirely up to you. Believe that it's for real for what it claims it does, or what many others had claim that it does. Or realize and accept the fact that it had already been debunked and that it's just a whole bunch of made up nonsense.
