Ouija & Occult Contact
The team at Ghost Central would like to express our concern with the use of the Ouija board for spirit contact. We do not recommend it's use due to the nature of spirits that may be contacted. Often spirits contacted through Ouija misrepresent, lie and may even posses or haunt the person or place it is used in.
Some believe demons can only be contacted and that the board is of Satan's work.
The Ouija board is an alphabet board with a pointer used for various forms of divination and/or spirit contact. The Ouija board dates back to ancient times. In China before the birth of Confucius, similar instruments were used to communicate with the dead. In Greece divination was done with a table that moved on wheels to point to signs, which were interpreted as revelations from the "unseen world." The rolling table was used through the nineteenth century. Other such devices were used by the ancient Romans as early as the third century A.D., and in the thirteenth century by the Mongols. Some Native Americans used "squdilatc boards" to find missing objects and persons, and obtain spiritual information. In 1853 the planchette came into use in Europe. . . .
The Ouija enjoyed enormous popularity during and after World War I, when many people were desperate to communicate with loved ones killed in the war and Spiritualism was in a revival. The modern occult origin of this "parlor game" is specifically designed to contact the spirit world. Its recent development began with prominent French spiritualist, M. Planchette in 1853 and, in 1899 was bought by William Fuld, an inventor interested in spiritism. In 1966 Fuld, often considered the modern "father" of the Ouija board, sold his patent to Parker Brothers. Although Parker Brothers keeps sales figures confidential, the board has now sold perhaps 20-25 million sets.
The board puts one in contact with the spirit world and as a result it should be considered anything but a game. It continues to be marketed as as game, no doubt because of the almighty dollar. Many famous mediums began their trade by experimentation with the Ouija board and what they came in contact with are demons. Some even advise against using it. Participants believe they are contacting a departed loved one or some one from the past, who has information. It usually starts out as innocent fun and then can lead to addiction. The force behind the board can be demonic. It should come as no surprise that most of the time the answer just happens to be what the person wants to hear. It could be a family member, Loved one or someone talking for them saying they are ok in the spirit world. Once contact is established, It is believed that Satan may lures the victim in to other occult activity. Most will indulge in Psychic's, and fortune tellers to get answers to many questions.
