Hello Karen. I haven’t used the spirit board in a while because of this crazy dowsing rod session I had. It was answering questions like crazy. I didn’t like the feel of it so I ended it. When it comes to using the spirit board it has been positive. It has been a lovely experience when I connect with my guides. That is my sole purpose to work with the divine. I don’t know, I didn’t feel comfortable regarding the rods. I need to work more on releasing this fear. I feel that this situation has stopped me from using the board. How can I get over this hump?

Someone et al


Hi Someone et al!

What I really like hearing about what you said above is that you “ended it” when the messages didn’t feel right to you. Too often, many people continue on with the messages and engage such energy when it doesn’t feel “right.” However,  they do not need to! You have demonstrated this. Stop whenever the desire to stop feels predominant.

So, during anyone’s work with the Board, there will be conversations that may go somewhere, could go nowhere and may even leave one feeling uneasy. The most important thing to do is to recognize this! And when you receive less than the communications expected, just stop, wipe off the Board and retry the session again or SIGN OFF until a later time! Signing off is the strongest reply you can give. This sends a message that you will NOT interact with such nonsense!

Since you have used the Board before and your interactions have been positive, then go right back to this tool knowing that any other divination tool you use is not related to the tool of choice for now. You can release the fears you reference by remembering and deciding that all communications received, regardless of which tool you use, are from energies that have the freedom to express as well. Yet, never get caught up in another’s drama/karma, including trickster-like energies. Instead, know that every being has a right to express and communicate their experiences. However, know that you have the free-will to CHOOSE whose drama and experiences you will focus upon, if at all.

You can get over this “hump” by remembering that there is nothing to fear other than your own assumptions about the experiences. Remain open-minded to the communications and always TRUST yourself when it comes to accepting or rejecting the communications. Remember, Someone et al, you know what resonates and what does not resonate with your purpose for using these tools. Choose the communications, but choose wisely!

Happy Boarding…
