Is it dangerous to use a Ouija board?
The Ouija board is commonly associated with two types of danger namely use of the board for one person to manipulate another or the dangers connected with making contact with malign spirits.
Using a Ouija board with people who may have negative intentions or who deliberately try to frighten others can be a traumatic experience. I would suggest you avoid the kind of idiot who asks questions like: “When is so and so going to die?” And avoid people who treat it with a cavalier attitude or who are just seeking a scare factor. Any contact with the dead should be treated with respect and a sensible amount of caution.
Making contact with spirits is a very definite possibility with a Ouija board. If you know, hand on heart, that making contact will upset you - avoid using the board completely. The worries, doubts and fears that lie in your own mind will be more powerful and have a more negative affect on you than anything an actual spirit could sling at you. If you have any doubts, don’t put yourself through it.
Making contact with an evil spirit is highly unlikely. Most spirits would be more accurately described as mischievious or malicious. To be honest, the kind of spirits randomly contacted by a Ouija board and a novice are going to be pretty low level entities – you may be lucky enough to witness the odd break out of kinetic energy (table rocking that kind of thing, rare but it does happen) but it doesn’t really take that much intelligence to rock a table, not even for a spirit. The greater danger is believing what you see and hear on the board. Some spirits will take great delight in telling you rubbish just to frighten you. You wouldn’t (I hope) ring up random strangers in the phone book and believe them when they tell you that you are going to die. Well why believe the spirits? Treat what you are told with a generous pinch of salt. And bear in mind that knowledge is not proof of foresight. Just because a spirit can tell you the name of your dead dog doesn’t mean they know anything at all about your future.
There are however some basic precautions that you can take to maximise the safety or using a Ouija board.
