QUESTION. Hi, this is probably a silly question, but I was reading through all of your archived questions (great stuff by the way) and noticed on the question you were asked about the dangers of ouija boards that you mentioned that if the board starts to count down the letters or numbers to end the contact immediately. Is there any particular reason behind this?
There is, but to be honest I'm not sure how much credence I actually give it. It is popularly believed that if the ouija board counts down through the numbers or the alphabet by itself then it is opening a portal through enabling spirits to come through the board and inhabit the world.
I'm a bit sceptical, despite the fact that this is a very widely held belief. I can't really see why or how this would work and as a ouija board is effectively acting as a portal anyway then I can't see what difference a spirit demonstrating a good working knowledge of the alphabet would achieve.....
However, if my board ever decides to do this (and it never has) then I would certainly close it immediately*. Sometimes it is prudent to bow to the wisdom and experience of others, even if you retain an element of healthy scepticism. Better to be safe than sorry. And if a spirit did manage to come through the board (can you hear the doubtful tone of my typing there...) then it would be harder to deal with than a spirit that stayed on the right side of the board. Not worth taking the risk.
*I think I would. I've got a bit of a gung ho...I wonder what will happen attitude. Lol
