Following the Ouija board rules will help keep you safe from the trickster spirits and demonic entities that may come through when you are communicating with the other side.
Many who have experimented with the Ouija board seem to agree that the old board game, invented as little more than a parlor trick 130 years ago, is not a toy to be messed with.
The Ouija conjures fear and anxiety at the mere mention of its name.
Ouija board users have been haunted, even tormented by the spirits or demonic entities they opened the door to through a talking board.
Over the years, a handful of rules came about to keep users safe while playing with a Ouija board. Following these simple rules might help ensure that you don’t inadvertently invite the ZoZo demon into your life if you’re not into that sort of thing.
The Ouija board rules are:
1. Never use the Ouija board alone.
Playing Ouija by yourself leaves you more vulnerable to an evil spirit coming through from the other side, so always make sure you play with one or more friends.
2. Never use the Ouija board in a graveyard.
Using a Ouija board in a graveyard or somewhere where a violent murder took place can cause a malevolent entity to come through the veil.
3. Never burn the Ouija board.
A Ouija board is said to scream if you try to burn it. Anyone who hears the board scream will have 36 hours to live.
Burning a Ouija board doesn’t work anyway, according to stories, as it always seems to end up back in its owner’s home intact.
The proper way to dispose of a Ouija board is to break it into seven pieces, sprinkle it with Holy Water, and bury it.
4. Never leave the planchette on the Ouija board.
Leaving the planchette (the pointer) on the board can allow a demon or spirit to escape from the board. Another way something can escape is if you allow the planchette to count down through the numbers or alphabet on the board.
5. Never ask when you will die.
I don’t know why. Maybe because it’s something you shouldn’t really know? Or because a spirit will invent a terrible fate for you, then see to it that it comes true?
6. Always say goodbye.
Closing the board is important, as it shuts the door to the other side and prevents lingering spirits from interfering in your life. Thank the spirits and say goodbye. The planchette should move down to the word “goodbye” on the board. Then you can safely put the board back in its box.
If the spirit does not say goodbye back, you need to once again say goodbye, then pass the planchette through the flame of a candle.
Sometimes you will find variations or additions to these rules, such as never ask about God, place a silver coin on the board for protection, never play the Ouija board when you are sick or weak as it may make you vulnerable to possession, and never play if just think it’s a game, or you are an atheist or doubter.
