Demystifying The Oracle For Paranormal Research
Demystifying The Oracle
In 'Demystifying The Oracle,' Steve Higgins presents balanced information on Ouija boards, allowing readers to form their own opinions on whether they are a harmless toy, a communication tool, or a dangerous occult instrument.
The debate over whether Ouija boards are nothing more than a harmless toy, a useful implement for communicating with the dead, or an extremely dangerous occult tool rages on. 'Demystifying the Oracle' doesn't aim to prove or debunk any of these conflicting beliefs about spirit boards, but instead provides balanced information to allow readers to make their own decisions.
Although best practises and methods vary depending on personal beliefs, you'll uncover instructions, tips, and guidance on how to use a Ouija board, drawing on the author's own extensive personal experience and knowledge gathered from the wider paranormal community.
The guidance includes advice on how to effectively "call out" to any spirits that might be present during a Ouija board session. The book includes a list of themes for questioning supernatural entities through the board and example questions and phrases for each theme to encourage natural and open communication with the spirits.
Any discussion about Ouija boards can't ignore the negative perceptions that surround them, which have been fuelled by popular culture, religious beliefs, and sensationalised stories of hauntings and possession. The author has conducted his own research on people's beliefs and perceptions of spirit boards to try to get to the bottom of this.
