I don't know what they mean, but I can ask that you not get involved with ouija boards unless you are experienced in what you are doing. You could be opening yourself up for major trouble with spirits that you cannot control.
Answer: Most paranormal researchers advise against the casual use of the Ouija board, suggesting that it can be a doorway to unknown dimensions. ?The board itself is not dangerous, but the form of communication that you are attempting often is,'' says Ghost researcher Dale Kaczmarek of the Ghost Research Society. ''Most often the spirits whom are contacted through the Ouija are those whom reside on 'the lower astral plane.' These spirits are often very confused and may have died a violent or sudden death; murder, suicide, etc. Therefore, many violent, negative and potentially dangerous conditions are present to those using the board. Often times several spirits will attempt to come through at the same time but the real danger lies when you ask for physical proof of their existence! You might say, 'Well, if you're really a spirit, then put out this light or move that object!' What you have just done is simple, you have 'opened a doorway' and allowed them to enter into the physical world and future problems can and often do arise.''
But what if the Ouija really does not contact spirits? What if it only accesses our own subconscious? The advice might be the same. Since there are realativly few accounts of positive, uplifting experiences with the Ouija, and many negative ones, we might assume that it more attuned to the negative aspects of our subconscious.
If you're determined to use the Ouija anyway, it is highly recommended that you follow some rules of precaution:
--Begin by announcing that the session will only allow an experience that is positive or toward a higher good and that negative energies are not welcome.
--Don't ask for physical signs.
--When you're done, close the board. This is an important step. When you're done with your session, slide the planchette to 'GOODBYE' and remove your hands.
From my knowledge of Ouija, I've noticed that sometimes spirits just have certain "ticks" that they repeat for one reason or another. It may be because they don't know what else to do, or something else of that sort. Some believe that certain (or even all) ticks mean the spirit is evil, such as the board going through the alphabet backwards or continuing to repeat the same thing. I would probably just disregard it for now. It most likely doesn't have a specific meaning that others would know.
But as others have said, be safe when using the board. I've only used it a couple times myself, and made sure to do it as safe as I could.
*I gave a short prayer of protection before beginning
* I placed silver on the board and wore a silver necklace (I read that silver apparently repels demons/evil spirits)
* I didn't ask any 'dangerous' questions (I.E: questions about death/negative things) * I respected the spirit
* I closed the board by asking the spirit to move to goodbye and then verbally said "Goodbye," flipping the board and planchette upside down. (If the spirit doesn't move the planchette to Goodbye, it is advised to move it to Goodbye yourself).
* And then I gave a quick prayer of protection at the end.
Those are just a few things that I did, but depending on your belief or preference, you may desire to do something else in the future.
I have two stories for you. Dont read if your thinking about messing with the board at night. haha
My friend and his aunt were messing with a oujia board and they asked the spirit if he was a ghost. It spelled demon. Then they asked it to show itself. It msaid look at the window. Spines and blood and all forms of horror.
A few friends of mine went with one to a baby cemetary. The board spelled gibberish but they heard laughter and toys and other noises all around them.
