Ouija Boards...

People seem fiercely divided on their opinions regarding Ouijas. I've known otherwise skeptical, rational, intelligent people who won't come near a board or allow one in their homes. Claiming the Ouija Board is a potentially dangerous portal for malevolent spirits.

Or is the Ouija just another board game for harmless entertainment? 

Most spiritualists claim that negative energy or evil spirit entities are limited in their powers and need a welcoming portal, opportunity, to enter our physical world.

Does the Ouija Board and the players provide such an welcome mat?

As a believer in the spirit world and the possibility of the Ouija facilitating genuine paranormal activity, I take one of the positions you stated: Claiming the Ouija Board is a potentially dangerous portal for malevolent spirits.

I read a lot of stories and I am more and more convinced this is true. Positive communication can happen but the risk is too great.

I say it every time, but here we go.....

People will say a ouija board is a harmless toy, but it can also be a tool.

Never use a ouija board.  It attracts low and deceptive spirits, and no good can come of it.  (I know this)

It's just a board game that works though the subconscious and ideomotor effect. Now a magic 8 ball, that's evil.

But he might have had a disturbing experience with a Ouija. I know that the ideomotor effect...Or downright intentional moving of the planchette...is the usual cause of movement. But I swear I've never seen another aspect of the paranormal that divides people and converts skeptics and even STEM guys as the Ouija. My PhD (Anthro) brother in law won't allow one in his home. Anecdotal I know, but the sheer number of people I've met who have strong aversion or fear of the OB has always amazed me. 

Maybe I'll have to try a session myself just to see. "I ain't 'fraid a no ghosts!" LOL 

Peace.

I had one in my early teens and my mother wanted that thing out of the house so I gave it to my older sister (married and had her own house) and she ended up getting rid of it also. Bad vibes you get from that darn thing. I would ask any skeptics to give it a try to see what it's all about...

I understand what you mean about skeptics trying it out to try and determine the validity of using it being a portal for malevolent energy or spirits. But where the problem might be in such a scenario is that it's likely that what creates the "portal" or opportunity for the spirits/demons to gain access is, not so much the board itself but the people playing who willingly and earnestly attempt to summon the spirits. Thus, two non-believing skeptics might not entice the entities. Just a thought.

I've tried to use a Ouija Board dozens of times. By myself and with other people. 

Literally nothing happens.

It's a toy that does absolutely nothing and is no danger to anybody.

People haunt themselves.

@Tuco's Gas, why do they never work for sceptics?

It seems these people are not that sceptical...

It’s all psychological.

I actually hypothesized in an earlier post as to why the Ouija might not work for skeptics as far as creating a portal for malevolent dieties.

In a way both paranormal believers and sceptics are right,Ouija boards open your mind to negative entities so it is psychological in a way.The only difference is sceptics put a halt to it there, where believers who aren't protected allow this bad stuff into reality.It's just a bit of cardboard you can make yourself but it's the intention put into it that makes it real.Bad stuff and shouldn't be messed with.

The other way to look at it is that believers are susceptible to sucking themselves in, while sceptics are not.

I think it's just different brain functions,like some people are mechanically minded and some are animal and nature orientated.You don't often get a combo of these.
