Are Ouija boards dangerous?

Have you ever used one? If you have, did you get the results you were looking for?

Side note: I AM NOT going to use a Ouija board. I never have. And i don't own one or have any way of getting one, nor do i want one. I'm just curious on others perspectives of Ouija boards.

My understanding is that Ouija boards can be dangerous, but they can also be used correctly with positive results.

  • It can be dangerous if you don't use it right.

  • I have never used one. Growing up they were forbidden as tools to hang with Satan.

    I have no desire to use one either.

    Do I think they are dangerous...sure. In the right hands, all sorts of things can be dangerous.

  • I don't think they're dangerous. I don't even think it helps you contact the dead. I've used one before... not much really happened. I think it's the people who are using it that control it- or their subconscious does.

  • Ha, you were talking to my mom! lol!! ~ I have one and I use it all the time. And no, nothing dangerous has ever happened! Sometimes you get great results others nothing... It's like a radio that can switch channels all by itself. It's an open channel, but in most cases you'll end up with nothing. I think they are a great way to comune with those on the other side or things that reside in your home... Plus, they are some good spooky fun!

  • I personally don't' like them... Have I used one? No... not comfortable doing so... get really bad vibes from them...
    Now my dd's boyfriends' father bought one off line that no one wanted at a cheap price and found out it carried along with it a very bad/pist off spirit ... I told her to have him burn it... and I created a strong protection mix to go around her home to protect her and my grandchildren...
    It is different for each person, but I personally will not own or use one....

  • My friend had one and yes we used it. We channeled both demonic and angelic spirit thru it so yeah they can be dangerous I suppose. Moreso if you useit yourself. The "bad " spirit never liked me. I had "heavy hands". The angelic spirit she got when she used the board near the catholic church. It told her to destroy the board. I don't know I've always been skeptical about such things and while some weird stuff happened to her, prolly cause she used it alone, nothing really happened to me.

  • I think it's just a mind over matter type thing. Everyone I talk to knows a friend of a friend of a friend who's had something weird happen to them with it. I dunno.

  • I suppose if it was made of wood and someone hit you in the face with it, it could be dangerous!

  • had one, used it lots when a teenager. nothing bad ever happened. it was a game. that's why its in the game isle.

    if you "invite" bad spirits in by using a ouija, then you can "invite" bad spirits in simple by saying "come on in". It's not the board.

  • I think it's only dangerous if you hit someone over the head with one.
