Does anyone know of any cool effects that incorporate a spirit board?? My sister is really into them and is wanting to conduct a Seance to contact my mother who recently passed away. I don't believe in them to be honest and find the whole thing to be a bit laughable, but I love my sister and my mom so I'm willing to do it, but I was wondering if there were any effects that I could throw in to entertain the 12+ people that will be in attendance.

Thanks in advance guys!!!

Maybe you could shim the planchette and use an m5. All you really need is some IT and your imagination.

Don't do it. I know you can, you know you can, but resist the urge. Wait until another time when you are having the seance as a party game and are not trying to contact someone you both knew and loved. Don't mess with your sister's grief. It's not your place to entertain the believers. Better stay away from it than publicly mocking your sister's beliefs. My opinion.

If you feel you must, Brohter Shadow seance, will take place only in the sitters minds and can be very healing.

I would not suggest doing it for such serious reasons too.

I agree with the others here...

Don't do it as a trick...you could easily say the wrong thing.

If you wish, Brother Shadow's seance would work here...you have to read it to understand.

This all is heavy stuff, better left alone.

4 words,"Wrong time, wrong place."

But if you are interested in learning good magick for another time, TALES FROM THE TALKING BOARD by Jim Magus. (Jim is a member here.)

Yup! Stay clear. A few years ago I was doing a pendulum routine with some friends at a dinner party. No-one else new about ideo-motor responses and I convinced them all that messages from the spirit world were being channelled using the pendulum.
I had forgotten that one of my friends had recently lost a loved one and she ended up crying uncontrollably after she held the pendulum and asked a "secret question".
It took ages to calm her down and in an attempt to undo the harm, I explained the method/principle - that just made things worse as she then accused me of taking advantage of her feelings and beliefs just to entertain others.........bad move!

On the upside though (in more appropriate circumstances) I can strongly recommend Jim Magus' book mentioned by Tony above.

If you want ready made Ouija effects, see if you can find Leland Stone's Spirit Spelling board (the whole board floats up) or the Fabrice Delaure Mystic Ouija (a mentalism effect)

I've got a new Ouija effect coming out in the store at month end where the planchette moves without anyone being near it (or the board). PM me if you want more info.

Heck - you can end up causing a hell of a lot of chaos and you will be wading into a potential mine-field of psychebombs...

My opinion - if your sister is really gung-ho to do this as a way to help the bereavement process (like in the denial stage)... my humble opinion is don't do any magic at all - use it "straight" i.e. in the context you describe - this is not for entertainment - it is some sort of bit of process in grieving IMHO and let your sister be in charge, follow the classic instructions of the board - and that is that... then ideomotor/or spirits from beyond, whatever you want to believe, can be the sole source of the action.

My condolenses on the passing of your mother by the way. I hope you and your family are getting the support you need as you go through this phase in your lives.

All the best,

Dr S

May as well add I agree with Spellbinder.What a callous awful idea magickjack1977.Spend you renergies talking to your sister,explaining a piece of wood isn't going to help her grieve.Nor is it going to contact anyone!

I wouldn't play with that either. I perform mostly psychic type magic and mentalism and I've had some crazy reactions. I posted this on another subject but scroll down and read STRONG KIND OF MAGIC and THE CURSE on my blog: http://mohanathoughts.blogspot.com/2006_......ive.html

On another note. Some experts in the parapsychology department discourage the use of ouija boards all together. They say that when you open up yourself to those things anything can come through. No matter if you believe in it or not, Lou Gentile has some very scary "real" recordings and reportsabout this kind of thing. You're trying to contact the spirit of your deceased mother and you get beelzebub masquerading as mom and he won't go away.
I don't know if these things are real or not but it sure does make life more interesting to think that they are.

for you ghost and demonology buffs out there here is a great link to scare the pants off of you.

I was thinking of making sum ouija board effects but after consulting quite a few ppl into the spiritual side of things seriously don't mess about. if your doing a real seance then just go through it (im no expert) but usually when you conduct a seance if ppl are watching the seance wont work because there not part of the circle or something like tht ... I don't know I only looked into it once

but yeah if its your sisters doing. let her try and don't take advantage!

Listen to Spellbinders advice:

Ouija effects are fine, I have no problem with that but most definitely NOT to trick your sister at such a time.

And don't use a ouija in connection of your collection of Sumerian demon statues, like Pazuzu.

Ive had some exepriences with ouija boards where Ive had reasons to think I communicated with sprits. The crreepy part is I don't know if they were honest about who they were. Regaurdless nothing good came from it and lets just say I havn't played with one since and would recomend the same.

I use a ouija board in a seance. Nothing happens (usually!)with the board, but afterward, when I am doing something else, the planchette suddenly moves by itself. I also have a Pazuzu statue. I don't keep them together or use them in the same routine.
