Across history, we find a lot of stories and information about people trying to contact the other side of death through Ouija board. This is a bizarre soul communication method that scared the hell out of those who have used it. It is also one of the most popular sold items that are meant for this use. It consists of a flat board, printed with letters of the alphabet, punctuation marks, the words “yes” and “no” and some numbers. Users need to place their finger on a pointer that is supposed to move and tell a series of messages without the participant intentionally moving it. Most people have laughed about the potentially dangerous effects that the board can have and use it for fun at pajamas parties. Some people who have used this method for communication with souls reveal their stories.

On the day before Halloween, Kristine and her husband Frank were really bored and went to Walmart to find some board games to kill their time. Once arrived there, Kristine seemed to be attracted to the Ouija board, maybe because of the holiday spirit and decided to try and contact a ghost for fun. After a few attempts in asking ghosts to talk to them, Frank asked for the last time if there are any demons that want to talk to them and asked for a name. After the pointer moved alone to “yes” and then spelled the number “666” Kristine got really scared and told the demon to go, but he moved the pointer to “no”. Seconds after it started to count down from 9 to 1 and then their dog began to bark at the door. She opened the door but no one was there and the dog ran barking to the bedroom.

Elizabeth Reaser plays Alice Zander in Ouija 2016. She and her two daughters make money by getting people to believe they have a bizarre soul communication way for them to speak with their loved ones who have died. At some point, her teenage daughter comes with the idea to include an Ouija into their scam sessions. Paulina prepares the board with magnets so that she can move the pointer where she wants. During these attempts, she opens a portal for an entity that takes possession of her 9-year-old sister.
Putting in balance one or two positive communication with souls experiences and a dozen sessions went wrong, I would say it would be better to leave the spirits from the other side stay there. Most people underestimate the power of this device and use it as a fun experiment. Scientists, mediums and paranormal specialists have explained a thousand times that this board can only be used with an expert that knows all rules and instructions of it in order not to put yourself or others in danger. Personally, we would not use the Ouija for anything in the world.
