We all know about Ouija Boards as being the means with which to communicate with spirits. Many HORROR movies have been made about them and yet people still use them.
Basically, Ouija Boards are an uncontrolled ritual that allows a gateway to be opened between the physical world and the lower astral planes.
Let me explain what astral planes are.
Reality is made up of varying levels of existence, with the physical level being the 'lowest' level. The next level is the first of the astral planes. They are levels of vibrational reality that allow for varying levels of existence between physical reality and the highest vibrational level that we ultimately are from and are to return.
The Lower Astral Planes are described as a dark, dismal world reminiscent of the Christian purgatory or hell. After dying, some people, because of the low vibration of their thoughts, are pulled toward and trapped near the physical plane in a state of confusion. There being no sense of time nor space in the worlds of spirit, they might reside here for years or even centuries of Earth time, totally bewildered, not even aware that they have died.
The Middle Astral Planes are pleasant realms where 60-70 percent of us wake up to be rehabilitated after our earthly education in “the school of hard knocks.”
The Higher Astral Planes are wonderful realms called Heaven by Christians, or the Summerland by spiritualists. About ten percent of the human population arrive at this level after “death”.
The Mental-Causal Planes are a realm of divine inspiration, free of earthly desires and conflict. The beings in these dimensions inspire many of the artistic and technical breakthroughs on Earth by sending silent messages to its inhabitants.
Life in the lower stages of the astral world duplicate in every detail our lives on earth. Were it no so, the shock for the many who are uninstructed and ignorant would be more than they could stand. And so it has to be accomplished by very easy stages. The next stage of life resembles this current physical world. That is why so many in the astral planes are unaware they have passed beyond the physical.
Here essentially it is a world of thought, where thought is reality. And, being a thought world, thought moulds every expression of its life and its activity. Being so near to the earth plane, and peopled by men and women who are naturally still very material in their outlook on life, the expression of the thought is very gross and so, they tend to think in terms of physical things.
They cannot think of life apart from its physical aspects. There has never filtered into their consciousness any understanding of a life apart from the purely physical. They cannot visualise spiritual activities and, because they cannot visualise them, they have no place in their scheme of things. But there are degrees of astral life, for gradually as awakening comes, the grossness slowly but surely becomes more refined, and life, they begin to see, is something beyond its material aspect. When spiritual realisation dawns they are ‘dead’ to the astral world and they begin to live in the world of spirit. There are many deaths and many births within the many mansions (dimensions) of the Father.
The Lower Astral Plane is for the uninstructed and the ignorant – those who are unaware of the existence of spiritual realities – who can’t visualise anything beyond the purely physical. The astral world is not divided into watertight compartments.
Basically, what it's saying is that if you think Hell on Earth is bad, wait'll you get a load of the Lower Astral Plane!
And that, unfortunately, is the dimension that ouija boards allow you to make contact with. Why that dimension? Because it's simply a gateway between this dimension and the next one – the Lower Astral Plane. There's no control of it, no control of the vibrational frequency that the gateway maintains, and as a result, you end up communicating with those astral entities that are closest to the physical plane.
Yes, it might very well be a dead loved one who hasn't gone onto the higher planes of existence. But just because they loved and respected you when they were alive, does NOT necessarily mean they will be feeling the same way once they're dead.
Once a lower astral entity has a gateway into this world, through the ouija board and your own energy field (your aura), cases of possession and hauntings can result. When you have something that's attached itself to your aura, it subconsciously affects you and the decisions you make.
Let me relate an experience I had once.
When I was running a spiritual development group back in 1993, one of the attendees (whose name I can't remember right now) was a young guy of around 18-20, and he didn't have a very positive attitude. He enjoyed coming to the sessions and learning, but his life wasn't very positive. Anyway, after a couple months of him showing up each week, I began to feel tired when it came time for the weekly session. I used to think it was work that was making me tired, but on this one particular week, as the session time approached, I was just shattered. Exhausted. It was weird.
So I asked Estera to look after the session that night while I went to bed, and to give them my apologies. While in bed, I did a meditation and white light protection ritual on myself. I visualised the house I was in, and in my mind I saw myself in my room, radiating light. I expanded the light to protect not only myself but the house, and in my mind I was across the road, looking at the house with all this light bursting out from the windows. It was an interesting sight.
Suddenly something happened which I WASN'T expecting, and certainly wasn't part of my meditation. As I was 'looking' at the house, there was suddenly a scream in my head, and I 'saw' a humanoid shape flying from the roof of the house, and disappearing in an arc over behind other houses. It was as if something had been kicked out of the house!
I opened my eyes in surprise, looking up at my ceiling and wondering what the hell that was all about. Then I returned to the meditation and spoke to my spirit guides. They informed me that… Darren, that was his name. They informed me that he had a number of lower astral entities attached to his aura, and it was because of them that I was feeling so drained whenever it came time for him to come around.
Because my own energy field, my aura, was so open to the idea of sharing and teaching, I was giving my energy to those people who attended the group. However, that giving of energy was being taken advantage of by the entities attached to Darren's aura. I was spiritually giving out my energy to them and they were sucking for all they could.
Upon realising this, I activated my white light protection against them. I changed the way I was doing things internally, and the ways I protected myself.
I felt fine after that meditation and got up and went out to complete the group session. I never felt drained again after that night. Darren continued coming along for only another 2 or 3 weeks and then decided he couldn't do it any more. I ran into him a few months later and he apologised for not coming to the sessions anymore, and I told him that was fine. He then told me something which also surprised me, but which I understood.
He told me that every time he was around me, he felt nervous – and he was nervous as he was telling me this. He didn't understand it, and that was why he stopped coming to the sessions. He asked me why he was feeling that way, and I told him it was something he would need to work out for himself. I couldn't tell him that he had lower astral entities attached to his aura and it was their own nervousness around me that he was picking up on. I was protected from them, stronger than them, and they were nervous, which made him nervous.
A few months later I heard he had been arrested for house squatting. I don't know what happened to him after that. But I also learnt that he had been playing with ouija boards as well. His interest in learning about spirituality took him in a direction that ended up being bad for him.
So the moral of the story is never to play with ouija boards, and always to visualise white light about yourself. You're keeping yourself safe from more than what you might think.
