Do good spirits lie on ouija board?

User Avatar
Spirits have no reason to lie. They do as the are ask. But after that question they are free to do whatever. Most of them just want to be put back to rest. Others want revenge for being put there in the first place. Ouija Boards are extremely dangerous.

Can you reverse the effects of a Ouija board?

User Avatar
First off, that stuff isn't something to play with. Next, your answer is yes, but it's extremely difficult (trust me, this has happened to me). First, if you haven't already, talk to a priest or a paranormal investigation team. Then I would suggest you buy a Bible and sleep with it next to you. Third, and most frightening, burn the Ouija board. Yes, something will come out and I can attack, but bring a Bible when you burn it. Another Answer: Seek help with your personal issues; any lasting effect of a Ouija board is most likely a result of unresolved issues on your part, especially as the very exercise of Ouija promotes communication with the group subconscious and enables the unintentional exposure of very personal or deep-seated problems. The alleged paranormal aspect of Ouija has been thoroughly debunked by scientific professionals time and time again, but it remains popular, especially with those who believe in the paranormal; the obvious connotation of 'paranormal believer' being that the believer is more openly susceptible to suggestion and paranormal interpretation. Additional Information: If you doubt the above and believe the problem is truly supernatural, then you can contact a shaman or exorcist. Just be careful and not fall for a con job, since the majority who claim to do such healing tend to be fake.

Would you be better off using a short board or a long board surfing a reef break in the Cook Islands?

My mate was recently there said it was great. I recommend you take a shortboard and a Gun. Most of the reefs here are very shallow, making them heavy, bring a few spare leggies.

How does the Ouija board game work?

User Avatar
If you want to know "how it works", it works based on the IdeoMotor effect: not spirits and ghosts of days past. Remember it is a GAME and a TOY developed and manufactured by a game and toy company. The ideomotor effect refers to involuntary and unconscious motor behavior. The term "ideomotor action" was coined by William Carpenter in 1882 in his explanation for the movements of dowsing rods and pendulums by dowsers, and table turning by spirit mediums. The movement of pointers on Ouija boards is also due to the ideomotor effect. It's just a toy.

Asked in Ouija Boards

Do ouija boards work?

User Avatar
Ouija Boards, and similar divination mechanisms, are purportedly controlled by the spirits. In that regard, whether they work is entirely up to the belief of the user. As far as HOW they work, most results are obtained by the subconscious or conscious movement of the user. In experiments by parapsychologists in the 1930's and 1940's, blindfolded Ouija Board players were unable to generate any decipherable results. Because some assume that the "spirits" require human eyes to see the Ouija Board, the experiments did not totally discredit belief in the phenomenon. The Ouija board should be correctly used as indicated on their instruction sheets, "for entertainment purposes only". "Ouija" is a registered name of Parker brothers. The generic term is 'Talking boards'. Viewed by Religious Groups Many religions consider such "spirit summoning" to be forbidden, a form of divination or occultism. For most in the secular world, it is another manifestation of superstition taken to a ridiculous extreme. Do they work? As for the connection to the spirits of the dead, why should the dead be bothered? In some cases, information has been gleaned from them that none of the people using the board would admit to knowing. They can provide answers as to whether the spirit survives after death. Spirits can provide reassurance to the bereaved, but are unconcerned with material things such as wealth, fame or fortune. There is something there, but exactly what is obviously unknown. Be respectful as you would to meeting someone face to face. Do not seek to tell fortunes. Be careful playing with these things because they have been known to lead to mental illness and possessions as believed by some religious groups. sometimes. but it isn't your recently deceased loved ones you are talking to, they are random spirits (including demons). the ouiji board is like a single telephone in the spirit world and any spirit may answer the call. I suggest to not try and use one because bad things happen to some people after they have. They become very scared and paranoid, some saying they have actually seen ghosts or demons. They believe in spirits and demons because the ouiji board worked (nobody knows how). Some have even commited suicide. This subject is too emotive to answer here. Everyone has their opinion. To the skeptic no proof is enough. To the beleiver no proof is neccessary.
Asked in Ghosts, Ouija Boards

How can you contact spirits?

User Avatar
Answer 1: Spirits are those who have passed on to the Spirit World. We ourselves cannot contact them and they cannot contact us unless God gives them a special message for us. They will deliver their message but will not stay to chat. One may ask God to let you know if they are alright and the answer may come in a dream. But there is no one on one conversation held. Answer 2: Without going into the complex realm of dimensions those that have died merely inhabit a different dimension/reality. There is a possibility of communication but should only be breached with caution, knowledge and respect by those learned in this ability. Answer 3: There are some who are naturally gifted people who are capable of communing with those who have passed, these are called mediums. You can pay for some, but usually if they are pretty sincere they will help free of charge. You can also contact spirits through EVP's or Electronic Voice Phenomena which is where a spirits voice is captured on a voice recorder and there is no explanation as to where the audio came from. You can check different ghost hunting groups for more information on this. Yet another possibility to consider is going into trance. When you go into a trance like state, or level of deep meditation, you open your mind and body to receive messages whether from the Divine (if you believe in such) or spirits. This of course is one of many methods, but experimenting with different ways can help you find your happy medium at some point.

Why is the ouija board illegal?

User Avatar
In the USA the Oujia board is not illegal, and available in most stores like Walmart, Toysrus and other stores that carry board games. Some cultures forbid their people to use them, and some other countries might have laws against the occult including Ouija boards. In my experience they have brought trouble to a lot of people. I have done paranormal investigations for people who have used Ouija boards and shortly after had very negative paranormal experiences. No one can say if there is a correlation between Ouija boards and entity intrusion, possession, or poltergeist activity, however there are plenty of testimony from people on the subject.

Asked in Surfing, Skateboarding, Ouija Boards, The Difference Between

What is the difference between a long board and short board in surfing?

User Avatar
== == A shortboard while more difficult to stand up on is easier to maneuver. A longboard, also known as a Malibu, is easier to stand up on, making it better for certain conditions and types of surfing, they are usually nine to ten feel long with one to three fins. Their size can make them harder to get past the breaking waves than shortboards but they are still a better alternative for beginners due to the comparative ease of use. Both shortboards and longboards come in a variety of styles but the defining difference is usually size and to a lesser extent, the number of fins, as shortboards often have two, three or even four or five fins to make it easier to do tricks and such. There is a size in between these two boards called a "Minimal", which usually is around 7 feel long and the same shape as a longboard, these are aimed at being good beginner boards and are a balance of being short enough to easily get out past the break while being long enough for inexperienced users to stand up. Longboards have also existed much longer than shortboards, and were used as long as 250 years ago and probably longer by the Polynesians.

If a person goes mainly after significantly younger 'targets' could this mean they are possibly a control freak and should be avoided?

User Avatar
Two of my long-term relationships (one of which I am currently attempting to dissolve) have been with men several years older and it was/is awful after they think you're "under control" (after they initially are so charming). As far as a 30 yr old chasing teenagers, that's just sad. . .they're of the age of consent, so the older person is not committing a crime. Without meaning to infer that it "never works", true intentions are questionable. It depends on the person's cultural, ethnic, and social background, on his upbringing, and of the nature of his relationships with his "targets". If his mates are minors, he may be a latent pedophile. If the relationships are consensual, he may indeed be an insecure person or even a control freak. http://www.narcissistic-abuse.com/faq22.html http://www.narcissistic-abuse.com/faq6.html

What would happen if everyone on Earth flushed their toilets at the same time?

User Avatar
Probably nothing, besides a few thousand sewer busts, lots of stincky gloop of everything that, well you get the picture. Don't you? If not, sorry. I hope that this answers your question. If not, sorry. Do not try this unless you live on high ground. The people on the dark side would lose some sleep. The earth would suddenly be deafened by a great noise: half the population of the earth would yell at the other half "be sure to put the seat down!" I don't think anything would happen, except for the momentary drop in water pressure as the toilets refilled. BTW, not every culture uses toilets that flush.

Asked in Ouija Boards, The Difference Between

What are the differences between ouija boards and table tipping?

User Avatar
== Answer == Ouija boards are used with a tool and when you ask it a question to place your hand on the tool (a pointer) and it spells out the answer to your question. It will give you a "yes" or "no" answer or spell out the name of a person, etc. Table tipping is when someone tries to conjure up a spirit and asks the spirit questions and the table tips as if the entity is communicating. Some say when this practice is used the table can rock back and forth violently. How much truth there is in this and how many magic tricks are used is anyone's guess. Even psychics will tell people that the Ouija board is a dangerous game to play and summon up demons.
Asked in Ouija Boards

Can ouija boards be dangerous?

User Avatar
It depends if they work. If they do, you will have to worry about making the spirits mad, which can lead to numerous results. Also, you have to watch out for demons or the Devil, trying to trick you into thinking you're talking to a "ghost". The use of a ouija board in essence opens a channel from the "other side" to the person working with it. if you are an experienced practitioner of magic you have learned to create and maintain a spiritual shield. This can and does protect you from unwanted/uninvited spirits and spiritual entities, which may attach themselves to the user. Inexperienced, and unprotected users can open doors to some very scary things, so yes, the use of a ouija board can be dangerous.

How do you get good spirits on ouija board?

User Avatar
you might just try it mabey just call a good spirit and tell it to get in i dont know *better answer* Having used a Ouija board plenty of times, here are a few tips I use to attract willing and friendly spirits: * Make sure you are not using the board alone..negative spirits can prey on vulnerable people. Use the board with a sibling/friend/medium. * Keep optimistic. Make sure all the participants have a positive mind and are serious but cheerful about using the board, as spirits can read your mind (Experience here- I now mostly ask spirits questions in my head). * If it helps you to keep a positive outlook, surround yourself with pretty/positive things, like flowers and lucky charms..spirits are especially attracted to flowers. * Start by placing the planchette in the middle of the board, and calling on the protection of God and the Holy Spirit. * Ask sensible and basic questions at first..NEVER ask silly questions eg-"when will (name) die?" and "will you hurt me?" It may anger the spirit and cause unwanted results. * You can afterwards cleanse the board if you wish, with a method from a medium or paranormal website. Always remember to write down your questions and answers, so you know what you have gathered and can make links in further Ouija sessions. ALWAYS make sure you say goodbye at the end , and be sure the spirit says goodbye. If you dont close down the board correctly, the spirit may choose to haunt you, which can cause unwanted results. However A good spirit will probably be willing and say goodbye, and come and talk to you next time. Good luck, and hope I have helped :)

There comes a great warning with fooling around with the Ouija board. I thought it was just a game many years ago, but lets face it, many of us like to torment the unknown every so often. I was young and stupid. I have had friends that have had nothing but bad luck having that board around and threw it out in the garbage. Even many Psychics will warn others about Ouija boards. If you persist then go on E-Bay. Don't say you weren't warned!

Asked in Ghosts, Ouija Boards

The church says that you should not try to contact a spirit so what do you do if a spirit contacts YOU?

User Avatar
Tell them to leave in the name of jesus name and mean it. Ally-in-Wonderland's answer: I truthfully know nothing about this, but what I would do is... 1. Ask who they are. 2. Ask what they want. 3. Get to know them and/or what they want. 4. If you trust eachother, promise to try to get/do what they want UNLESS it is dangerous. 5. Stay and talk a while if they don't want anything - wish them a fairwell if you do not trust them or they want anything dangerous. Those are just things I would do, but it depends on the situation. Answer: If you do not have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, I would suggest you find someone that does and bring them to your house to cast them out. This is how it was done in the Bible, with people that were Baptized in the Holy Spirit. Run like hell Tell them to leave in jesus's name Georgenicol The only trouble with running with hell and demanding a spirit leave is that the spirit concerned may very well be trying to communicate to you information of great importance and value. The information could take the form of guidance or warning. For example, one afternoon in 1987 I felt a little tired so I lay on the top of my bed for a few minutes. Suddenly I heard this loud 'voice' in my mind with message that said: "You must get your mother to a hospital - or else!" Here we have an example of a spirit being trying and succeeding to communicate with me - and by doing so giving me information of very great importance. My sister actually received the same message. My mother was one of those people who would only go to the doctor's surgery if her head fell off. When my sister and I told her of the spiritual communication that we had received about her it encouraged her to go to the hospital. She learned that she had a serious but treatable heart condition. The doctors told her though if she did not come into the hospital when she did she would have died in a very short time. Because of that information and because of the treatment my mother received because of that information my mother lived another five years in good health right up to the end of her life. What would have happened if I had followed the church's advice and run like hell and demand the spirit depart? My mother would have died - that's what. People do not seem to understand the truth about spirit and spirit beings. How can they? The church itself doesn't know very much about spiritual truth. It has great lack of knowledge about it and a great deal of the knowledge it does have is incorrect. In my opinion, it is a case of: those who should know most about spiritual truth and the things of the spirit know least. The church also discourages people from learning about the truth. In many ways the church has been of great service to humanity but in the respect of imparting and researching into the truths of the spirit they are found very wanting. In my opinion, film, TV, and other media have also made a great contribution to promoting misunderstanding of the truths of the spirit. They do that purely for dramatic effect and to increase appeal. They have no reason for doing otherwise - but the church does. Perhaps you may be interested to learn something about the real truth about spirit beings from someone who has been interested in discerning the truths of the spirit for forty years. People should not think that there are human beings and spirit beings. The fact is, human beings are spirit beings too. They do not have to pass away before they become spirit beings. They are spirit beings while they live on this earth plane. The only difference between spirit beings on spiritual planes and spirit beings on the earth plane is that we human beings have physical bodies while spirit beings on spiritual planes do not. That's the only difference between the two. When we leave this earth plane and our earthly existence at the end of our physical existence- as all must do - we permanently discard our physical bodies. People seem to think that when someone passes over into the spirit world they automatically become evil. Let me tell you though that passing over into spirit does not and can not change your basic nature and your personality. That means if you were a loving soul while you live on earth you will be a loving soul in the spirit world - and you will be inclined to have loving thoughts and do loving things in accordance with your loving nature. However, if you did evil things while you lived on earth you will probably be inclined to do similar evil and mischievous things on the other side - again in accordance with your essential nature. If the bond and feeling of love existed with someone or with some people while you were on this earth plane, passing over to the other side will not sever or change it. Why should it, and why would you expect that it should? If you have loved ones in New York do you think you will love them any less because you go to live in Sydney, Australia? Why would you love them any less if that were so and why would you think that you would? Let me tell you something that I do not think will insult your reason, logic and common sense: great distance or change in vibrational state - which is what we have when we have two beings, one on the earth plane and one in the spirit world - do not lessen the bond or feelings of love that exist between two souls. In fact they tend increase it! Separation causes the separated parties to appreciate the other more. It causes them to be taken less for granted. So often separation causes love and affection to come about that didn't exist before. When someone passes into the spirit world then they do not stop loving loved ones who are still on the earth plane. They love them even more because they can still see and perceive the grief that these people needlessly experience. They are aware of illnesses and suffering that their loved one experience - and they frequently know what will happen if a loved one takes or continues to take a course of action. Love, comfort, solace and guidance is a great reason why a person in the spirit world desires to make contact with a loved one. Obviously because the departed spirit person no longer has a physical body they cannot communicate by physical means. Communication and contact must be through spiritual connection or attunement between the two parties. Such communication is very delicate and can be shattered easily by the wrong vibrations - such as telling the spirit to go to hell and demanding they depart. This will break the spiritual connection - but what it also does it that it will deny you the opportunity to make contact with a loved one or a spirit being who only has your best interests at heart. If your wife, husband, child, father, mother, or loved one etc has just passed over and you pray that they could still be with you then when your prayers are answered in the only way they can be by the departed spirit attempting to make contact with you and you tell them to go to hell how do you think they will feel? It is true that not all spirit beings who try to make contact are loved ones of personal acquaintance. Many will be loving souls who are sent the help you in your life e.g. it could be a spirit guide or it could just be someone who seeks to help you in some way. Just as we have loving souls in this world who desire and go out of their way to help other people we have loving souls in the spirit world who do the same. When we block spiritual communications this is what we miss out on - and let me tell you that we are not better off because of that. It is those spirit beings i.e. departed spirit beings and other non-human spirit entities - who would seek to work evil and do mischievous things that we should not communicate with. Such beings attempt to influence and encourage you to do their bidding. When we have an attempted spiritual communication then these can result in either good things or bad things. One way of dealing with such communication is to deny all of it and prevent it from occurring. This will unfortunately deny us of the good and the bad. Another way - and a way by which we can profit - is to learn how to be selective so that we can allow the good to pass through and to filter out the bad. Unfortunately such spiritual mediumship is rather a lost art in the orthodox churches and so their policy seems to be to filter out the good and the bad. If you know about the law of like attracting like you should know that it not only applies in the physical world and the mental world but in the spiritual world and the things of the spirit as well. Thus if you want to attract evil and mischievous spirits you surround yourself with like spiritual vibrations - or more correctly unspiritual vibrations - such as thoughts of hatred, anger, revenge, lust, greed, violence, fear, jealousy and thoughts of like nature. You can also create a very bad unspiritual atmosphere by drinking alcohol, smoking tobacco or taking drugs. These tend to stimulate the lower aspects of the self and create poor quality vibrations. If you want to attract the wrong spiritual 'crowd' this is what you do. If you want to attract the right spiritual 'crowd' you must do the exact opposite. You must first create a state of peace, stillness and tranquility within and without the self. It is this that promotes the activity of the spirit. Then having created an atmosphere which smooths the way for spiritual contact you must raise your vibrations in such a positive way that you attract the right spiritual contact. Obviously to do that you do not do anything that is written in the above paragraph. You must surround yourself with love. This raises the spiritual vibrations and stimulates the higher self and it is this that attracts beings of spiritual nature and spiritual inclination. Then you pray to God or spirit to to provide you with protection and to help you be attuned to the higher vibrations and to those of the higher vibrations. Is it not obvious that if you are surrounded and influenced by nasty spirit beings and spirit entities, the reason is probably because you yourself have created the negative spiritual atmosphere and vibrations that attract these type of beings? It could also be the case that the people you associate yourself with do the same. If this is so the negative vibrations that are created can be very very powerful and this can strongly attract the wrong kind of spirits. If you want to free yourself from the influence of nasty spirit beings the answer is obviously to create a positive spiritual atmosphere. What you will find is that church services tend to be designed with the purpose of promoting the activity of the spirit within the church - yet churches seem to deny the spirit contact and the spirit benefits that such conditions create. People, in my opinion, so often have an unwarranted fear in things like spiritual communications and in other spiritual phenomena. The fact is, spiritual phenomena are natural, not unnatural or supernatural phenomena. They are explained by and occur because of natural law. People are not afraid of natural physical phenomena and they should not be afraid of natural spiritual phenomena either. Using things that utilize natural physical energy are perfectly safe if a few simple safety precautions are taken and precisely the same applies when natural spiritual energy is being utilized. Let me say that the production of spiritual phenomena such as spiritual communication is a serious business and should be considered as such but one should really not be any more fearful of producing spiritual phenomena than one should be in using a computer or driving a car.
