Beware, 5 Things To Never Ever Do With An Ouija Board
Ouija boards have been a source of fascination and mystery for as long as I can remember. Some view them as simple board games, while others believe they can act as portals to the spirit world.
Since we're into the month of Halloween, I figured this would be the perfect time to crank up the creepy factor. There's a great article from Syfy with some rules you should always follow when using these boards. I also found things you should never ever do. Keep scrolling to discover.
BEWARE, 5 THINGS TO NEVER EVER DO WITH AN OUIJA BOARD
Don't Use Alone
Always have at least one friend with you when you use an Ouija board. That way you have someone to share the experience with and to help ground you if things get out of control.
Avoid Using in a Known Haunted Location
While it may seem like a thrill, using an Ouija board in a location with reported paranormal activity can invite unwanted attention from spirits. Thus, it's not advised.
Don't Forget to Say Goodbye
Always end sessions by moving the planchette to "GOODBYE". This is believed to close any portals and make sure that spirits don’t linger.
Never Taunt or Challenge Spirits
Always show respect when asking questions. Provoking or challenging spirits can bring on negative experiences you don't want.
Don’t Leave the Planchette on the Board
When finishing your session, always remove the planchette from the board. That way the portal is closed and no additional unintended communication can occur.
Have you ever had an experience with an Ouija board? They've been around since the first patent back in 1890. I say there's something to these things. Only one question remains to be asked. What do you believe?
