I wanted to write an article about why you shouldn’t use ouija boards to get spiritual guidance because it seems occasionally people use ouija boards out of curiosity and also when they are desperate to communicate with a deceased loved one.

Here’s why you shouldn’t use them:

While it’s possible that in some cases, Ouija boards work through subconscious movements that a person can accidentally make while using it, often there is a spirit element to the ouija board.

Ouija boards don’t attract deceased loved ones, nor do Spirit Guides communicate with us via a ouija board. Instead, they tend to attract earthbound spirits.

Earthbound spirit is another word for ‘ghost’.

Earthbound spirits exist in the astral realm, but have not fully crossed over and so a part of them is still on Earth. They are often found in hospitals, funeral parlours, cemeteries, bars, clubs, and hotels.

These earthbound spirits can stay behind on the earth plane for a variety of reasons. For example, if a recently deceased soul believes they have done something wrong that they will be judged for, they may refuse to cross over. Or if a soul had an addiction when they were incarnated that they are not ready to release, they may also be reluctant to cross over. And when someone dies suddenly and unexpectedly and the person is too shocked and distressed to cross over and leave their life behind, they may choose to stay on the earth plane. Unfinished business can also cause a soul to keep a part of themselves on the earth plane, long after their life has ended.

Earthbound spirits are dead people, and just like the living, there are all types of earthbound spirit. Some are playful, some are nice and some are not so nice. Ouija boards seem to attract the most mischievous and the most unpleasant spirits.

The unpleasant ones may not be able to harm you because they don’t have a body, but they can freak you out or say unpleasant things. The presence of the mischievous ones means that often you won’t get a straight answer.

Just because a spirit is in a body does not make them a reliable source of spiritual guidance

Earthbound spirits don’t hang around on the earth plane for fun. The reasons why they stay here are always negative ones, meaning that dead people who stick around here are generally fearful and/or stuck.

So if you communicate with a spirit through a ouija board, you can be sure that you will not be getting good advice. Not just that, but Ouija boards have a reputation for attracting the spirits of the lowest vibration, so the guidance you get via this instrument could be frightening and disempowering.

People often tell me that their house never feels the same again after having used a ouija board. This is one more reason why it is not a good idea to use one. Earthbound spirits can attach to your aura and home when you engage with them. When they do this, they drain energy, which is one reason why it’s not a good idea to keep them hanging around.

In conclusion, ouija boards are ineffective in getting spiritual guidance. You’re going to the wrong source.

If you want spiritual guidance in general, tap into your own soul or Spirit Guides. There are plenty of books out there to help you to do this. I have a very popular course taken by over 1500 students since 2010, which can teach you to do this.

If you want to contact a deceased loved one, you can read this article to find out some ways that you can make that can happen. If you don’t get any signs from a deceased loved one such as communication through a dream, I recommend visiting a reputable medium.

If you feel you have invited a spirit into your space through having used a ouija board, find someone who does property clearings and get a property clearing done.
