A construction worker got a spooky surprise when he found a Ouija board behind the heating vent of a customer’s house back in April 2016. Many people asked the question: Who put it there, and more importantly why?
I get a lot of questions every day on my Ouija board advice blog, and usually they’re the same questions over and over. So instead of answering each one, I usually post a link to a post that answers their question while stating Read This. Apparently it’s become my iconic catchphrase. So here is a long post of all things I typically tell people to read.
-Ouija boards are incredibly dangerous and you should not mess with them!
~Ouija boards are very safe as long as you’re playing in the right frame of mind. Read this.
-Is it safe to wear Ouija board clothes and accessories?
~Very much so. Read this.
-How do you pronounce Ouija?
-Wee-gee in America, Wee-juh in other English speaking countries. Read this.
This is just for Ouija board related asks. In a few months, I’ll post an FAQ for more pagan and spirit related stuff. In the meantime, you can check out a mini FAQ here. And hey, if you didn’t see the answer to a question you have, ask away.

So you think you've summoned a demon through the Ouija board
Oh snap! After playing on the Ouija board, all these creepy things are happening inside your house! You’ve summoned a *dun dun DUUUUNNNNN* DEMON!!!
I’m here to tell you that no, no you didn’t. You did not summon a demon.
Think of it this way. Demons are the opposite of angels. Could you accidentally summon an angel? Do you think that with some letters on cardboard you could accidentally invite an angel into your home? And in doing so, have that angel trapped in your home while strange things happened all around you?
No. Angels have way better things to do. So do demons.
BUT, hypothetically, you just used the Ouija board and now weird things are happening in your home! What is going on??
You have a poltergeist. A poltergeist is any spirit that is able to control things in our world, such as turning off and on lights, throwing things, or scratching you or walls and furniture. Poltergeists can be good or bad. Most are good, and are just using your energy to try to get your attention one way or another. Unless you are being physically harmed, assume the poltergeist is friendly. They are just communicating the only way they can. I mean, if you suddenly went invisible and mute, and tried to tell someone you were there, you would throw stuff too.
If you do have a demon in your home, they would not resort to just turning lights on and off. They are far, FAR more powerful than poltergeists. Symptoms of a demonic haunting are:
-very deep scratches or wounds on your body. And not like cat scratches, deep cuts
-being awakened or disturbed by low, dark voices or growling
-feeling like you want to stay inside all day, not wanting to be outgoing
-a feeling of dread or a sick feeling in your stomach when entering certain rooms
-a deep aversion to anything religious
-any religious items kept around the house will fall of the walls, or be smashed
-having a priest enter your house and they feel attacked or are physically attacked by an unseen entity
-all the poltergeist activity listed above happening frequently. Daily. Constantly.
If none of these things are happening to you, then you’re all good. But I gotta say it again, YOU WILL NOT SUMMON A DEMON THROUGH THE OUIJA BOARD.
YOU WILL NOT SUMMON A DEMON THROUGH THE OUIJA BOARD.
IF YOU USE A OUIJA BOARD AND YOU START TO NOTICE DEMONIC ACTIVITY, IT DID NOT COME FROM THE OUIJA BOARD. IT CAME FROM YOU.
And like I’ve said before, demonic possessions or hauntings only occur to people who are deeply religious, and have grown up knowing and fearing demons. If you do not have demons in your religion, or are not religious, you will never have to worry about demons.
But theouijagirl, what about Zozo???
Zozo seems to be a demon, but I can almost guarantee you that you are not talking to him. Let’s say Zozo is a demon, and likes to spend his time hopping around Ouija boards and deliberately freaking people out. Then Zozo is a huge MORON. Then Zozo is a powerless, weak demon that feeds off the dumbest form of fear possible. Go home, Zozo. Go home.
Or, if this isn’t the case, then you have a trickster spirit trying to scare you by pretending to be Zozo.
And now that you know this, if you are on the Ouija board and encounter someone claiming to be Zozo, you know you are dealing with a regular trickster spirit or the most moronic, idiotic, pathetic demon to ever crawl out of the Underworld. You are totally safe.
I hope this is informative for you guys. Feel free to send me an ask if you have any questions!
As a witch who is bonded with a psychic, along my journey I have found out quite a lot about demons. Heres some information:
NEVER say a demons name out loud. it directly summons them to you, and it gives them power.
Demon oppression and possession are two completely different things, though they likely happen within the same sequence. Oppression is where they impact your mental and physical health. This happens at any given time, and will result in a completely different mood, headaches, sickness etc. Possession is where they have full control of your body, or someone else’s body. That person may “act right” and act like themselves, however that is the demon playing you as a fool. They stalk you before they possess you, learning every single tiny behavior and can mimic you perfectly. I learned that when a demon possessed my mom for two weeks. That was not particularly pleasant. Demons get a kick out of you knowing that they are there, the whole demonic behavior thing that you can see (speaking in tounges, violence, extreme hatred, etc.) is the times that they WANT you to know that you are there,
Don’t talk to the demon directly. Even if you fell it standing right behind you, don’t acknowledge it unless you are going to take defensive action.
Defensive Action-these are things that I use regularly in my practice. These can be adapted for most anyone who is struggling with demonic influence.
Holy water is life. Don’t make it yourself, unless you are a ordained Catholic priest. Get a lot, and put it everywhere. Whenever you feel them trying to invade or opress you, throw that shit all over you, drink it even! Here are some creative things that I have done:
Holy water humidifiers
Holy water squirt guns
Holy water water balloons
Holy water + purified salt shots for those who may be possessed (don’t do this too much kids, kidney failure does not sound fun
Bake that shit into everything you eat. Smoothies, soups, stir fries, make rice and oatmeal, cookies, seriously whatever the hell you eat, put that shit in.
Anoint candles with holy water and salt and burn them in your home.
Draw protective sigils with holy water on your walls
Salt- pretty much life too. Demons hate this shit. Here’s how you can use it
Bake that shit into food.
I have different banishing and burning powders that i have made that i store in jars with protective sigils on them.
Burn in Hell powder- salt, black pepper, holy water (just a smidgen, and finally…. Cayenne pepper! You grind that shit up with your mortar and pestle, then you add a couple drops of holy water and have intent to burn the fuck out of demons. As you grind that, here is a quick chant to help keep your intent strong, “burns like fire, hurts like hell, demonic presence feel the power of my spell.
Spirit Be Gone- salt, and pretty much every single protective herb that you have. First, grind that shit with your mortar and pestle, then draw protective sigils on bay leaves and burn them. Put the ash in, and grind it even more. “Negative energy, feel my bane, i banish you now, your power is in vain”. I use it for casting itty bitty circles whenever bed energy is around, and if you are a psychic, this really helps dispel negative spirits that love to talk/mess with you. It stops the headaches and such.
do protective spells with that shit.
Use salt baths and make your own bodyscrubs to rid you of negative energy.
Salt the windows, doors, and floors of your home.
Make bracelets using a 9 knot chant, and annoint them with holy water, salt, and one drop of your blood. pass it through willow, sage, and pine smoke. It usually works to keep demonic entities out of your head, however if they are plaguing you physically, then untie a knot, starting with the last knot you did, and your energy will dispel and weaken them.
Protective stones work really well. keep them near and around you.
Defensive Strategies (please be aware that this will either work, or you wont be strong enough to complete the spell. If you can’t this demon or multiple demon will come AFTER YOU. Know for real how strong the demon is, get a psychic to figure this out. Hierarchy will not be too pleased with you if you try to put them in a jar. Make sure you are a very experienced mage/witch, or have one with you. The first night that I bound a demon, my ritual was interrupted, and that bastard took a leap out of my jar and almost choked me to death in front of my parents. Be EXTREMELY careful, and do this in the presence of another. If you need to do this, please send me a ask, and I will try to help you as much as I can. This spell works to capture a demon who is possessing a human.
You will Need:
a jar/vessel that you have enchanted to protect and bind a spirit
both of the salt mixes
ashes (a lot). Add ashes from sigils of banishing if possible
enough candles to make a large circle for you to work in
enough candles for you to seal the vessel
hair from the victim
stones of protection
stones for power of you
lavender, rosemary, basil, bay
1. Cast a really strong circle. use rocks and candles placed at equidistant intervals to make it strong. line that circle with salt, burning powder, and banishing powder.
2. Call upon guides, angels, friendly spirits, familiars, etc. Ask them to observe and lend you strength and support.
3. Start by anointing the candle with holy water, salt, and banishing herbs. Intensify your own intent to purify and banish.
4. Light the candle in your circle (all of the other ones should be lit by now, with the formation of your circle) and prepare the hair.
5, Call upon the demon in mention “Demon, thou who hast been plaguing ___, i call you and summon you to this circle. Once you know that it is there, burn the hair and chant, “Christo, this is Gods land” over and over. Pour intent and strength into the words. this is dissolving the bond between the victim and the demon, isolating the demon.
6. Throw the hair into the jar (still chanting) and pour in ashes, protective herbs, marigolds. and pour the rest of the holy water in there. Cap the jar and shake that bitch. Keep chanting.
7. Seal the jar, with wax, ribbons, etc. when the wax is cooling, throw more powder, salt, and herbs on the jar. once, it is sealed, do not touch the jar. Thank the spirits that you have summoned, and say something to the jar like, “In the name of the holy Christ, I therefore bind and banish you satanic spirit, may you never plague the living again.”
8. DO NOT KEEP THE JAR I REPEAT DO NOT KEEP THE JAR. Bury that mother fucker far away from civilization, just get a psychic or clairvoyant to check if you did it right. Do not open the jar for goodness sake, that bastard will be pissed. just get the jar the hell away from you.
I hoped this helped you guys! Feel free to pm or ask me if you have any questions or need help!
