The Ouija, also known as a spirit board or talking board, has been used as a divining tool by Spiritualists since 1886 to enable faster communication with dead. It uses a planchette or pointer as a movable indicator to spell out messages during a séance.
Participants place their fingers on the planchette, and it is moved about the board to spell out words. Some think the action of the board can be easily explained by unconscious movements of those controlling the planchette, but believers disagree.
Mainstream religious denominations have warned against using spirit boards, holding that they can lead to demonic possession. Occultists, on the other hand, are divided on the issue, with some saying that it can be a tool for positive transformation; others reiterated the warnings of many Christians and caution "inexperienced users" against it.
Lay your hands on the Weird NJ planchette if you dare – but don’t say you haven’t been warned…
