Closing a Ouija board session properly is so important when dealing with spiritual forces and energies surrounding that divinatory tool. Do you know how to close a Ouija board session safely? Do you know why it is mandatory to follow certain rules to close the session and what the golden rules are for a safe Ouija board experience? Read this article to know it all!
The Ouija board: a powerful tool
The Ouija is one of the most famous instruments for contacting spirits, and therefore many people know all about its mechanisms, as well as its closing method. The unusual thing is that not many know what to do to end a session. When you have finished asking all your questions, it is important to leave the door to this other world completely closed.
It is advisable to say goodbye to the spirit with which you have spoken, in addition to thanking you for answering the questions. Likewise, everyone must wait for the pointer to point on the table to the word ‘goodbye’ and when it has been successfully marked, one can remove the finger from the Ouija table.
This stage should always be carried out so that the spirit you called realizes that the time has come to leave, so it does not stay around the house, waiting to finish a session that will never fully finish. You could have a spirit in your home for months or years if you’re not careful!
Summoning demons with the Ouija board
It is certainly a fascinating theory, but the reality is that many people believe that spirits communicate through the Ouija board, but also demonic entities. Experts in the field suggest that certain unwanted entities use the Ouija as a channel to access our reality. The main demons are Belphegor or Pazuzu.
These infamous demons will deceive the participants, spelling a name unknown to them, or describing a deceased relative or friend.
Even so, people are not aware of the dangers that the Ouija board entails. They think it is a simple game controlled by the power of the mind. But the reality is quite different and if the session is not completed correctly you may leave a portal open for all kinds of dark entities to access, such as those mentioned above.
Closing the connection
There are certain rules that you must follow when using a Ouija board.
- One is that you should never use it at home.
- Another is to never allow the board to move forward or backward through each letter of the alphabet or each number, a trick Zozo uses to access our reality.
- But the main rule, possibly the most important of all, is this: make sure the planchette is placed on top of “Goodbye” before ending the session. Failure to do so can lead to unintended consequences, such as a demonic spirit or entity acting unexpectedly.
- If a dark entity appears during a session, the connection with the Ouija must be cut immediately. Tell the spirit that you no longer wish to talk to him, and if he refuses, force him to “say goodbye.”
- Next, remove the planchette from the board. This should break the connection, and the Ouija board should be “closed”. That is when it is recommended to store it by wrapping the planchette in cloth, separate from the table. Then put them in a safe place.
But what if you don’t want the Ouija board anymore?
If you want to get rid of a Ouija board entirely, bury it in the ground (some recommend cutting it into seven pieces before doing so, but this is optional), and remember to keep the board and planchette separate. Then sprinkle holy water on the floor and also clean the area where you used the board with that same water.
Despite all this, there are those who claim that once a connection with the spirit world is established, it can never be undone. Your destiny, from the moment you use it, is attached to the other side.
Rules to follow
However, there are some rules not to disturb the spirits and make it easier for you to close the Ouija board session safely:
- You must never lift your finger from the planchette. If you are tired then either ask the spirit to change hands or swap hands yourself, ensuring one index finger is always on the planchette.
- If you want to get out of the circle, ask the spirit if you can.
- It is forbidden for two or more people to talk at the same time. If there is a medium or someone who has to do with the paranormal, it is better to let him speak.
- A medium is necessary to keep the situation under control. Someone who is too sensitive may get too involved in the situation and the spirit would take advantage of them.
Just one piece of advice for those who plan to have a session:
Don’t get too involved. The session may become too serious and if you don’t already have years and years of experience it can be difficult to let the spirit go. Don’t obsess over the session.
Rules and standards for group sessions:
- There must be at least four people
- Every single member of the group must not have dislikes and regrets towards another member of the group
- Jealousy, envy and hate feed the strength of evil spirits and this is not good (if an evil spirit has access to you it will be difficult to close the session)
- To do the session, you need people who obviously believe in ghosts in a life after death; spirits need our energy to get in touch with us. Concentration is therefore very important for the success of the session and a positive connection with the spirits!
The importance of saying ‘Goodbye’
When expressing the word “goodbye” it is made very clear that the link has ended and in this way, everything will return to normal, without the fear of any evil possession.
In the end, after closing the circle that was formed at the beginning of the session, you can let your hands down. If you feel to, you can say a prayer, or you can cleanse the space to get rid of any stagnant energy.
Good luck with your sessions! Make sure that safety is your number one priority when using Ouija boards.
