Ever get the feeling that someone’s behind you even though you’re alone? Or what about feeling a sudden chill in the back of your biceps or spine all of a sudden? Psychics say those feelings could be major signs of a spirit is in your vicinity. But let’s get this out of the way first: No, ghosts aren’t real. Or are they? Find out by getting yourself an Ouija board.History
Before we begin scaring ourselves, a little history lesson is in order. Originally, an Ouija board was intended to be a parlour game at its inception in 1890 but was popularised as a divination tool during the first World War. Some soldiers even claimed to have communicated with spirits in their camp in 1886. But whether you believe in ghosts or not, it’s up to you. One thing’s for sure—it can be pretty fun.Description and Use
Ouija boards are also called spirit or talking boards, and are used by spiritualists to communicate with surrounding entities. The board is made of smooth-finish wood, printed with the English alphabet and the numbers 0 through 9. It also has 'yes', 'no', and 'good bye' written on it. A planchette is used with the board. It’s a heart-shaped piece of plastic or wood with a hole in the middle covered by a lens to indicate what character the 'spirit' selects. Users place their fingers on the planchette, which is supposed to move toward the letters or words that the spirits want to communicate.Similar Products

You can also but a mini spell kit, which is actually just soothing detox baths perfect for a daily ritual of relaxation and summoning arcane entities. Not every piece of psychic and spiritual jewellery is intended for the occult though. An example is the suncatcher, which is like a wind chime but for light.
