Re: Ouija Board as wall decor? Yay? Nay?
OP, if you want to fuck up your life go ahead and get one. I and others posting here have learned the hard way. Psychosis, drug problems, violent rage, incredible bad luck, bad relationships and demonic attachment await you.

The good news is it's not permanent if you turn to the Lord to save you.

Many on here will poo poo what I and others have warned you about, they have no spiritual discernment. They think it's a game until it isn't. There are many objects and habits besides ouija boards that will expose you. I only wish I knew all this before having to suffer for 3 decades as a result of my curiosity.

Don't be a fool and find this out all by yourself unless you are a masochist.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73589229


With all due respect, you -and others of your mindset- are on the outside looking in and as such have little comprehension beyond your ingrained doctrine that there are alternative possibilities. And as I pointed out above all religions are based upon ritualistic mysticism so there is a strong level of hypocrisy in what they teach: that only they have the power/wisdom to discern good from evil and that only they offer the ultimate pathway to eternal happiness.

I happen to believe that God is present in all living entities -whether plants, animals or bipeds- and as such each carries within that divine connection. The hard part for humans is in recognizing that internal power and then using it without malice, avarice or any other metaphoric sin.

As I said earlier, I'm absolutely certain that demons do exist and that was especially apparent when I was studying classic Haitian Vou-Dou some 45 years ago. But I never feared them then or now because I recognized them for what they were: entities that exist only outside the physical plane that can only enter if we allow them to do so. And once you comprehend -and learn to use- your own natural defensive abilities, there is very little than can harm you. Again, the problem is that few are willing to work that hard to achieve such freedom and instead allow their religion to do it for them. That's not necessarily a BAD thing, but there is an alternative pathway.
 Quoting: GSB/LTD


With all due respect you make an awful lot of assumptions about someone you know nothing about. Suffice to say I wasn't religious or believed in any of it all when I got involved in the occult so there was nothing 'ingrained'. If it was I would never have got involved in it in the first place obviously.

The only thing that stopped it dead was turning to Jesus and I regret it took 3 decades for it happen and am only warning the OP so they can avoid the same fate. I came to this belief because of my direct experience, not because of what someone 'taught' me.

Re: Ouija Board as wall decor? Yay? Nay?
A lot of wisdom, once again, in your 2 back to back posts, GSB/LTD. Thank you for that, and for correcting me on the little girl spirit being no demon.

Anyone her who is able-bodied, consider paying a visit to a lonely elderly woman in a hospital/hospice (preferably, it affects them most) and bringing them flowers, or a book, or something you don't use that is cute like a cat knick-knack, something you might need to declutter but would please someone. Maybe something to eat that is non-allergenic.

I don't know the legality of walking into a hospital or nursing home and asking to see a lonely person, but what a cool thing you've inspired me to request here, GSB/LTD. hf

If anyone can do this, this 2022, brighten up some lonely someone's life, even if for just 5 min. Ask them about the past. The positive memory could linger for days. (And we might very well be told "they're trying to kill me/vaccinate me against my will.)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 81088587


You see how easy it becomes to enhance our own destinies while positively influencing those of others? You are far wiser than you give yourself credit for being and proof that what the French philosopher Michel de Montaigne meant when he penned "each of us are better than what we believe."

I admire you for embracing that in yourself!

You are opening a door with spirits you do not want to play with.

My son got into the occult via new age. He got violently attacked when he came out of it and those same spirits tried to attack me and all in my family. But, they were in for a rude awakening with me because the name of Jesus repels them all.

We went through months of hell because of his attraction to the dark side and would not want anyone else to live through this. My son met the demons on the dark side and it took him months to recover.
 Quoting: NOLAangel


I was possessed and harassed for a 2 year period in a house i bought . Alphabet murders or the double initial murders.

I sunk deep in drug fueled sex parties weekly , was playing hard rock in a band i had there . Drinking daily .

Eventually caught some WILD images of Demons on Poloroid Film and video.

MIRRORS do not exist in my home now - 20 years later . only the bathrooms have a mirror . They use Mirrors also to travel and see .

Ouija Boards hold spiritual power in them and have spells cast of the batches the produce weekly .

GET RID OF IT ASAP .!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80728118

Whoa! Your story needs to get out. Did you ever share this with any of the producers of shows like "A Haunting" or "My Haunted House" etc.? I'm sure they would love to have new material. I've never heard of any Double Initial Murders but I have recently heard about covering mirrors.

I wouldn’t it will start on the wall, then one night you will have friends over for drinks and next thing you know....your playing with it.


If you hang it don’t hang across from a window, door or mirror.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69111849


Other way round.

If you hang it, make sure there’s a mirror opposite.

Or even a mirrored bauble.

It will reflect back into it.

But not between mirrors. Because that amplifies it.

Ever heard the phrase, "by their words you shall know them?" Nevertheless, I humbly stand corrected by your rebuke.

But I will still suggest this: that you affected that change from within and always had the ability to do so. You too were far better than you may have readily accepted.

Re: Ouija Board as wall decor? Yay? Nay?
I'm thinking about buying a fancy, all wood Ouija Board and hanging it on my wall. Just for the swanky antique look & feel of it.

For the Christians who object and believe this stuff is real (which it might be, dunno): if I don't use it, nothing bad can happen, right?

I mean, what's the worst that can happen? It falls off and I have to re-pin it. If you object, state why. Thanks!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 81088587


Even if you not use it, it will open a portal into your home. You know the old “never invite a vampire into your home” adage? Its the same thing…
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79259435


It can't open a portal by itself. People have to set an intent to communicate with spirits to open a portal either informally or formally and there is no objects required; just the intent.
 Quoting: themessengernevermatters
Yes, I fully agree with this. I just wanted to put one up my wall. For the whole look of it. (I also like other Halloween like stuff and someone sold jars with weird looking things on it, at some point I had collected the digital images of it. That person no longer sells, but I also am drawn to non-plastic, Halloween like things like sculpted skulls, skeletons, talismans like pentagrams and red & black decor.)

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 81088587


Thus far, this is the only thing where you and I really differ. I haven't celebrated Hallowe'en for decades because I think it's unhealthy to fully embrace the occult even in harmless ways with a grinning carved Pumpkin and even if only for one day/night. And at one time mine was the house in the neighborhood that had the full-scale decorations and best freebies [never candy, I chose little glow-in-the-dark trinkets like rings or Mardi Gras beads].

Mystical tradition states that All Hallows Eve is the solitary time that fettered souls are allowed to walk freely among the living and those who decorate or costume aren't taking into consideration there's a reason those souls were bound to begin with. With my board spirit "Joseph" there was no evil present but that's not always the case, hence so many negative Ouija experiences. And just like an extra bottle of Champagne on New Year's Even too much of a good thing can quickly spiral out of control, particularly if one lacks that power of free will -and a weakened resistance- to begin with.

Do I believe a demon will come a-knockin' right along with trick-or-treaters? Certainly not. But depending upon how strong your belief -and acceptance of- is in the occult, the stakes rise proportionately. And like so many other aspects of life, it's a calculated risk.

TRUST ME: Vodou is NOT something to play around with. It's a complex religion that combines ancient African tribal beliefs with the Catholic church that has over 1,000 Lwa [spirits aka saints] that can be summoned for protection, benign assistance or the exacting of revenge against enemies.... and it's usually the latter!

Animal sacrifices are common in their rituals where spilled blood [including human when frenzied practitioners will slash themselves] figures prominently as a holy purifier [guess where they got that from?]; idols are also a big part of their ceremonies as are ecstatic chanting/dancing enhanced by alcohol/drugs.

While there are many different sects [including a watered-down Louisiana practice], the classic Haitian is the by far the most pervasive where superstition has always reigned supreme there since the 1500's.

For my money, Vodou is the darkest cult practiced today and far exceeds Satanism in that respect. So: you've been warned!

I don't see any reason not to. Ouija boards like tarot cards are just parlor games and not to be taken seriously. Ouija boards are about as accurate as tarot cards which is to say not at all. Ouija boards, tarot cards, pendulums etc. are merely a reflection of the subconscious user's desires and feelings and guesses. There is nothing magical about any of it nor are you bringing the psychic out in you by using them. There is no divine power in some other realm communicating to you through these parlor games. That's just marketing gimmick they use to get you to buy it and play it with your friends.

Read your post on Halloween and this. Yes, disagreements on both accounts. It is the beauty of the decor that I admire. I make a distinction between Halloween and Toussaint, All Saint's Day, Día de los Muertos. I am not unfamiliar with Vaudou in the least, to be clear. Quite to the contrary, though you sound better versed. I am aware of the Lwa, the sigils, the dances, the music, the bloodshed of animals etc. There are other ways, as you said, self blood and even with no blood, results have been obtained, I have catalogued this during my past research. (I am also vaguely aware of Santeria, and the fact that some claim "Voodoo" is different than "Hoodoo" and Voodoo would be the terminology strictly invented by Hollywood, at least for the English language, and I say it is nevertheless no less powerful than the "real thing".)

And one more place where I disagree: Palo Mayombé is much, much worse than Vaudou/Hoodoo: darker! :) It is from the Congo, IIRC. If the photos are the same as they were over a decade ago, I don't recommend any Christian here searches thism or the images will trigger them worse than a Ouija board.

Palo Mayombé might very well make a Vaudou practitioner look 2nd rate, and Ouija board, spirit summoner like a wannabe amateur! :) It is that extreme!

Re: Ouija Board as wall decor? Yay? Nay?
My advice is… don’t. I never believed in any of that Hoodoo stuff and am still not 100% convinced. But, I will tell you this, one summer I lived off campus at a Big 10 school. Rented house,chaos and fun. So when weird stuff would happen, we all brushed it off. One rainy day we were bored and started messing around with a Ouija board. Mostly we were all pushing the planchette deliberately for yes and no answers. “ Did Dave eat the last of my peanut butter” Someone said okay let’s get serious… it was an old house and we asked if anyone was there,yada, yada.. the planchette spelled out a name that sounded old fashioned. Like May Armbruster or something close to it. We asked when she died and got “189—“. No last digit. OK. How did you die. “Broken heart”. We stopped after that, out of boredom probably, but the five of us all denied having made the last stuff up / influencing the answers. I was studying in the main library a couple days later and decided to look at the old yearbooks. And eventually I found her. Group photo with just the names of the girls alongside in no “1st Row” order. The next year, her name was on an in memorium page with a few other names. So who knows.
The whole experience was pretty tame,but since the info turned out to be true..
I’m going to give Ouiji Boards a permanent pass.

Re: Ouija Board as wall decor? Yay? Nay?
My advice is… don’t. I never believed in any of that Hoodoo stuff and am still not 100% convinced. But, I will tell you this, one summer I lived off campus at a Big 10 school. Rented house,chaos and fun. So when weird stuff would happen, we all brushed it off. One rainy day we were bored and started messing around with a Ouija board. Mostly we were all pushing the planchette deliberately for yes and no answers. “ Did Dave eat the last of my peanut butter” Someone said okay let’s get serious… it was an old house and we asked if anyone was there,yada, yada.. the planchette spelled out a name that sounded old fashioned. Like May Armbruster or something close to it. We asked when she died and got “189—“. No last digit. OK. How did you die. “Broken heart”. We stopped after that, out of boredom probably, but the five of us all denied having made the last stuff up / influencing the answers. I was studying in the main library a couple days later and decided to look at the old yearbooks. And eventually I found her. Group photo with just the names of the girls alongside in no “1st Row” order. The next year, her name was on an in memorium page with a few other names. So who knows.
The whole experience was pretty tame,but since the info turned out to be true..
I’m going to give Ouiji Boards a permanent pass.

Don’t damage it as they are collector items.

Look up the asking price for 100 year old Ouija boards on eBay.

You're absolutely correct about that and some of those older designs are really works of elaborate Victorian art.

Yes, I've seen a few of those. No worries: several pages ago, I specified I only wanted a new made to look antique! I wouldn't desecrate any antique!

This thread is one of the most interesting I've read in some time. Some stories sent chills down my spine, while others were more educational. I did not know voodoo was so dangerous. Never practiced it, but I learned something.

IKR! I am humbled that so many came here to kindly discuss their experiences and that, although there's differences of opinion, the thread remained civil.

It wasn't even pinned, never requested, yet people kept pouring in, post after post, with not only their opinions, but their personal anecdotes and truths. So far as Vaudou goes, the stuff I've catalogued, I was ridiculed for a it a while back. In due time, I will share it all but now is not the time. My research isn't finished.
