Ouija Use a Spirit Board?

A member of your family or a close friend has just died. You tell yourself that your relationship with your departed loved one was so close, he or she must be trying to communicate with you. But you have received no such communication.

You look for a sign, but you see nothing. But are you really looking? Your aunt loved butterflies and suddenly they’re everywhere. Maybe you just need to pay more attention to your surroundings – you could be missing the signs. That special bearded dragon your brother loved so much pops up in a YouTube video that wasn’t even about bearded dragons, or a little girl you barely know hands you a pansy, your mother’s favorite flower. When you notice them, you’ll discover that signs are everywhere and soon you’ll begin to believe that none of them are coincidences.

Because signs aren’t always obvious in the beginning, though, and we tend to ignore them, we try other methods of reaching our loved ones. When President Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, lost their beloved son, William Wallace (Willie) Lincoln, Mary held séances in the White House in an attempt to communicate with her son. Did those séances bring about a visitation from Lincoln’s son?

According to the web site, Mr. Lincoln’s White House, Mary Todd Lincoln told her half-sister, Emilie Todd Helm, “He comes to me every night, and stands at the foot of my bed with the same sweet, adorable smile he has always had; he does not always come alone; little Eddie is sometimes with him and twice he has come with our brother Alec, he tells me he loves his Uncle Alec and is with him most of the time. You cannot dream of the comfort this gives me. When I thought of my little son in immensity, alone, without his mother to direct him, no one to hold his little hand in loving guidance, it nearly broke my heart.” 

Psychics and mediums, such as Theresa Caputo, Chip Coffey, James Van Praag, Allison Dubois, Maureen Hancock, and John Edward, help those in grief reach their loved ones. But some of them have waiting lists so long, you’d have to wait a couple of years before you spoke to one of them. Your grief is so overwhelming, you don’t think you can wait that long to talk to one of them.

So would you resort to using a Ouija Board or Spirit Board if you thought that method was the only one that would allow you to contact your loved one? Are you endangering yourself by inviting what you think are benevolent spirits into your home? How dangerous can they be? The worst-case scenario reminds me of the movie, The Exorcist, which was based on the real-life exorcism of a boy, Roland Doe (pseudonym), who used the Ouija Board with his spiritualist aunt, Aunt Harriet, and reportedly became possessed by an evil spirit. Are you willing to risk your life or the life of another loved one to reach one who has passed on? Read Ouija Boards vs. Angel Boards – Are They Just Games? before you decide.

  1. I don't know if I believe in all this or not. As kids, some of my friends had one of these, and I know that I manipulated the answering thing to scare the bejeezuz out of one of my friends. Call me "skeptical."
