Can you use a homemade quija board or does it have to be the actual board? Ive never used one (yet) and I want to communicate with my spirit guides. I read some this morning and made one out of cardboard but it didnt work. I stayed steady for about 10 minutes or so and nothing happened...Someone said it was because of my environment at that moment (animals running through the house like crazy) and another said it was because you cant use a made at home board. I cant find anything to read that will give me an answer.
