Ouija board sparks hysteria at school in Peru

A group of around 30 students was left terrified after a Ouija board session at their school went horribly wrong.
According to reports, the incident occurred after a teacher's daughter at San Jode de Saramuro boarding school in Peru's Loreto region brought a Ouija board and a book of black magic in to class.

After she managed to convince her fellow students to participate, the situation soon deteriorated in to mass hysteria with at least one student ending up convulsing and screaming on the floor.

When a teacher arrived to see what was going on, they found several of the students lying on the ground - many of them incoherent and suffering from spasms.

The incident prompted panicked parents to take their children to local evangelical churches believing that they had become possessed by whatever had been summoned during the session.

The school ended up being closed for a week but has since been reopened.

There's active tulpa communities out there and its an interesting trip if you do go looking for them. It's crazy what the mind can do

Just found this thread and started reading through it. Board causes mass hysteria in a classroom of students who think they are dabbling in the occult. Same thing that caused the Salem witch hysteria. You don't really believe those people were witches, do you?

The Lakota Yuwipi Ceremony creates a poltergeist like one. The whole Mide Lodge becomes a "train wreck" of crap flying.  No thanks, I'll stick with watching after people and nature.

Most of the community that I found myself in discussion with did not associate their tulpa with spirituality or the occult. For one reason or another, they longed for such a companion that would never leave their side and possibly help in their own self-development. It was a bit troubling when people would go through the process, hours and hours every day, to find themselves regretting having a "presence" with them almost at all times. It was odd all around and I was surprised I had not heard much about it before. Some tulpas seemed to inevitably devolve into mental illness.

There are similarities between tulpa creation and servitor creation. A servitor can be seen as a serving spirit or familiar, a tulpa in the sense people use them is more like a familiar. However the perk of a servitor is the rules and limitations aspect. Typically the idea is bound to a ritual and can be called through a specific ritual, typically designed by the servitors creator. It takes the same or more concentration to empower the idea, but it can be banished and destroyed much easier, though it might persist in the mind as a kind of residual thought.  I think there is a fine line between...
