Just bought one of these http://www.amazon.com/Enchanted-Spel.../dp/0978696832
Just to be clear I have absolutely no experience in ouija boards, and I'm not a fan of spirit summoning either (think it's rude to go calling out for them for answers to questions that (to them I'm sure) are trivial, usually I have seen that spirits tend to get their message across if they want to tell you something). I've had a good deal of experience with a number of magickal entities, many of whom I communicate with (spirit guides, angels, etc). My goal was to get through to my guardian entities (and others --but specifically no spirits) and to channel answers using the board as a diferent medium.
It's a gorgeous, simple thing. Beautiful bright colours and a cleverly folded little board that unfolds twice to reveal this marvelous, large ouija-like spread (but far less creepy I tell ya). There's a little glass thing (pointer?) that sits in the center, and you're supposed to place two index fingers on the thing, and say the questions out loud. (Before you begin, of course there's the grounding, shielding, invoking of archangels, and peace and light and good thoughts)!
So far, I 've tried it all by myself, and I did get some answers, but I haven't felt any presence and it felt a lot like I was using my own subconscious rather than allowing any entities to move the pointer for me. I think (and hope) practice should do the trick.
