DARE YOU PLAY?
The Ouija board rule - 'Do not play with the Ouija board!'
But the fact that you’re here tells me that there’s a pretty good chance that you intend to break that rule. So I’ll continue.
Ouija Board Rules:
Ouija board rule number one – Never play alone.
I can find no conclusive explanation as to why this is so, but rule number one, ‘never play with a Ouija board alone’ is considered to be the most important rule to obey whilst playing with the Ouija board. Perhaps it has something to do with strength in numbers, or the possibility of being driven crazy and having nobody with whom you shared the experience to lean on, somebody who will believe you.
Ouija board rule number two - Don’t let the demon escape
It is said that should you allow the planchette or pointer to count down through the numbers then the spirit or demon can escape, and some also believe the same to be true should you allow the spirit to go through the alphabet. Having a nice little chit chat on the Ouija is one thing but very few people wish to have Pazuzu, bringer of pestilence and keeper of the four winds running around causing mayhem uninvited, hence Ouija board rule number two ‘don’t let the demons escape’ or ‘don’t allow the planchette to count down through the numbers (or through the alphabet).
Ouija board rule number three – Place a silver coin on the Ouija board
Silver has often been thought to contain qualities that make it effective as a weapon against evil spirits. Chinese people believe that placing a silver locket around their child’s neck will ward off evil spirits and the Incas believed silver to be the tears of the moon. It is believed that silvers reflective properties are the reason silver is attributed with these powers; silver catches the light, and repels the darkness.
Ouija board rule number four – Never ask about God
This is said to be a big no-no, should the spirit be of the evil variety (and many believe that all entities associated with a Ouija board are of the evil variety) then it will become incredibly angry. The Demon or evil being is said to be aware that it has no power over God, and is not happy about it, it is said that the mere mention of God or Jesus (and other higher beings and deities) will result in glasses smashing, things shaking and flying around, and other weird crazy shit (and not in a good way). So unless that’s the kind of trip you’re looking for, remember, Ouija board rule number four ‘Never ask about God’.
ARE YOU PSYCHIC?
Ouija board rule number five – Say Goodbye
In terms of importance many Ouija board users would place this rule above the ‘do not play alone’ rule. It is said that properly closing the Ouija board after use is extremely important, this is done by first thanking the spirits for coming forwards to speak with you, you should then wish the spirits peace and then say ‘goodbye’. In theory once you have said goodbye to the spirit the planchette should now move (guided by the spirit) down to the ‘goodbye’ written at the bottom of the Ouija board.
Failing to close the Ouija board properly after each session leaves the spirits or demons present and able to influence your life negatively. Should the spirits or demons not say ‘goodbye’ by moving the planchette after you have wished them farewell, then you should repeat ‘goodbye’ and ‘leave’ in a loud stern voice, and then pass the planchette through the flame of a candle.
