Explaining the Ouija Board (Ouija Users)?

I have not used an ouija board in my life but I have had multiple friends that have used it. They would like me to join them sometime and I would like to. They keep telling me they know how to use it and I should sit back and leave me to them. I don't want to do that, because I'm not an idiot I know the ouija is dangerous and it's more than a mere toy. I know what they look like and I want someone to explain everything that could be important; meanings, things to be cautious of, what to do if something goes wrong, and so on. I'd like as much information as I can get so please answer :)

    The only power it has is the power of suggestion.

    The only thing dangerous about the Ouija Board are the morons who think it's real.

  • The first ouija board was sold and created by hasbro.

    The children's toy making company.

    But you think it's dangerous?

    That's like saying a barbie doll will murder you in your sleep if you dont comb her hair.

    They work through the ideomotor effect, participating members unconsciously move the Ouija marker without knowing they are doing so (or in some cases, knowingly).

    A test to prove they are fake is to blindfold participants, it comes out with absolute unreadable nonsense.

    A ouija board is a toy for stupid and gullible teens to scare each other with, it has no magical powers and the spirit world does not exist.

    It's more a psychological thing than a spiritual thing. It can also be used by a person to scare another person, just by cheating and making it point where you want it to point. If you are not a stable person with both feet on the ground, you should stay away from it. Your friends might take advantage of you or scare you because they think it's fun.

    Its an IDEOMOTOR DEVICE, like Pendulms and tipping tables and Dowsing rods---meaning that the device serves as a method to contact your SUBCONCIOUS MIND by unconscious muscle movements that move an indicator, for yes/no answers or alphanumerics.

    This is said to access one's own "Latent ESP" that "Lives" in the subconscious mind----and does the clairvoyant and telepathic communication.---The device lets us access that.
