Hello Karen. My name is Taylor. I just have a question on using a ouija board. When I was playing by myself, like in one of your videos, there was definitely a spirit with me, but the planchette didn’t move to answer my question, it only moved to one of the pictures in the corner of the board. Doesn’t that mean something bad or evil? I know that on some of the websites that I looked at, they said it does mean something bad, but I don’t really trust it that much.
Hi Taylor! Thanks for reaching out. Symbols are just images to spark the imagination. Every single one of us responds differently to each symbol we see. For example, when I see the image of the sun or the moon, especially on the Ouija Board, I think about the balance of masculine and feminine energies. I resonate with the alchemical traditions, which uses the sun and moon to represent such energies and thus, that’s what it reminds me of.
I’m sharing this with you, so you can think about learning more about symbols, universal imagery and signs to help you learn what they mean “to you!” The key word is “YOU!” What matters is what the image brings up for you and not what the internet or someone else tells you what they mean to them, including myself! So, instead of relying on another’s own interpretation and often, short- sighted view or limited understanding of an image, do your best to discover what it conjures up for you. Then, for that moment in time, that is what it will mean for you.
Now, having said that, nothing drawn or stamped on a Board has power. No, instead we give power to it! Just choose to stand within your power and stay empowered when you use a Board and soon enough, every image, symbol and word spelled will ONLY empower you to greatness. Think about that for a moment…..All symbols and all words that come forth through a Board will have a different meaning for each person privy to the session. Therefore, as many people there are, there will be just as many views and understandings. Who is right? Well, they all are, for what you perceive, is what you receive and often what you achieve!

Hello Can you burn the board or will it come back to you I have heard that if you do burn the board it will scream because of all the spirits is this true please let me know thanks.
Hi Cameron. I think you have been watching too many spooky movies! Think of it this way, when you throw away a paper bag, cardboard from your pizza box or even a piece of wood, does it scream and come back to you? You see how silly hollywood and internet tall tales have created such nonsense? The reality is that a Talking Board is just a piece of cardboard, compressed particle board and the antique ones were made out of wood. No matter the material used, they are all inanimate objects, which means they do not have a life of their own. The reason why they work, is because of you, the operator of the board.
This is great so now I know what to do and not to do and I have someone to talk to about my concerns or questions with the Ouija Board.
And, Cameron, be sure to check out the videos I make and post to my YouTube channel where you can learn even more about the Ouija Board and developing your own abilities! https://bit.ly/2NWpYrl
Hey Karen! I just sent an email, but wanted to comment so people can know what to do. My friends had been using the Ouija board recently, but I was not there. I had been face timing them. At one point the planchette made a figure eight, which I’ pretty sure indicates evil. After a few questions the girls began shivering. In told them to grab the temperature reader; one of those hand held ones that has a red lazer shooting out (I’ve been going to her house for years, so I knew she had this). It was 62 F! They immediately left the vicinity. The next day one of my friends explained how sh think the entity followed her home. How do you properly cleanse you house, how do you cleanse the board, and how do yo cleanse yourself?
Hello Cailin. Thanks for posting your story and questions here. First, let’s start with the planchette moving in the form of the figure eight. Why do you think that the figure eight shape implies “evil?” Be really careful about listening to social media and internet hype about what this (and many other things about a Ouija Board) means. This information comes from uninformed and mostly those who are novices at using the Board (or novices to spiritual pursuits) and have not done their own research. The figure eight, which is the symbol of infinity is a popular symbol, shape and movement throughout history. There are many variations to the meaning of it. It is used in mathematics–does that mean that math is evil? LOL! It is used in in christian iconography and also used by philosophers, to name a few. It is a powerful symbol representing the Alpha and the Omega and that energy is cyclical and eternal. There is nothing “evil” or negative about it other than what a person might project upon it. This goes for all symbols. Period.
Now, when one uses this tool and any other divination tool and/or any device to reach into the unseen realms, humans have a way to scare themselves into creating a reality that is spooky. This means that we want to experience something extraordinary that gets our adrenaline pumped, which on an unconscious level we end up manufacturing such strange responses within the environment. What I am talking about here is advanced manifestation properties and this is a conversation to have away from the Board, but for purposes of what you are asking about here, let’s just say that we are powerful beings that can create shifts within our environments, such as a drastic temperature change. Now, this is one explanation and your friends need to consider this as well, if they would like to progress with this tool. Also, it could be from a contact they made with another external energy, such as a spirit, that shifted the energy of the room into a colder space. This is common and nothing to fear. After all, they are using the Board to reach other energies, right? So, maybe they were successful.
Most importantly, what do your friends want to experience when they use this tool? This is the place to start when using the Board. They must decide do they want to have spooky experiences? If the answer is yes, then proceed down the path they are going. These will become superficial experiences and then they can just chalk these up to entertainment only. However, if they want to explore the Afterlife, the unseen dimensions and meet various spirits and energies, well then, let’s have them get practical about the process. Have them watch some of my videos on YouTube and/or read some of my blogs here on the website. What I teach is for people to become empowered within themselves so they can explore, discover and navigate the unseen dimensions. Trust me, this is so much more powerful and impactful than going down the path of fear-mongering.
Imagine if you and your friends could communicate with your deceased loved ones or meet your angels and spirit guides. What would it be like to explore past lives, parallel lives and future incarnations. What if you could spark your creativity and access knowledge and wisdom from your Higher Self? All of this is possible and feasible with this tool once you get beyond the fear and scare factor of using this tool. Know this, the Board does nothing. Instead, the operator of the Board does all of the work. The Board just becomes the excuse and permission to reach into the unseen dimensions. The Board helps the Operator to draw out their own internal abilities. Now, that is something to enjoy!
