EA Koetting’s Mastering Divination Course covers Ouija Boards.It’s the first thing he talks about.Ouija Boards werethe first method he ever used as a dabbler,according to some of his books.The spirit,would make the planchet move in a number eight,and completely divert,and point at him.After which,he used it to contact the spirit.
That spirit kept following him,for months.Apparently,his brother had at some point made a special Ouija Board with incense sticks,and a three-fingered demonic hand was seen at some point,creeping them all out.
At another point,this same spirit,Sa,introduced himself to a friend of his.When asked to give him his full name,Sa replied that his full name was Satan(and obviously this is the Wandering Spirit messing with the guy,and NOT Satan),because after cursing in continuity,the spirit told him he’d kill his mother.And of course,nobody likes to hear that.But his mother did end up commiting suicide in the most unusual manner.Apparently,she was shot three times in the head with a gun that had to be loaded.
At some point,he went into a cave,and commanded that spirit,Sa,to give him all his power,attempting his first evocation.This same entity demanded him that he offer it 66 human sacrifices.Of course,he rejected,because that’s just insanity.
This was him warning at how discordant and how untrustworthy these spirits can be.Another story speaks of a spirit he contacted at the age of 16 with his ‘‘Dark Circle’’ of comrades.And this spirit went by the name Ed.
Ed apparently helped them track down some old grimoire,and gave mostly accurate answers,but again,got clingy and addictive,and they’ve had to cut ties with Ed.And then,when filming Mastering Divination,the first spirit to come up presents himself as Ed.
So he does instruct you on how to use a Ouija Board and stuff,but he emphasizes that the spirits aren’t anything close compared to real spirits(if I can call them that) and the Ouija Board a tool,to be used for novelty.And since it can be altered by own’s expectations,it is grouped in ideometry.
There’s also a story in Baneful Magick where this same Dark Circle commissions Ed to kill a girl at a mall,a girl from their class.Ed enveloped her in an aura of pure evil and darkness.And while all of them watched,Lee(I think) a more sympathetic member of their group told the spirit to stop.They all got mad at them because then they wouldn’t know if the spell was working(evil kids,lol)
However,that same girl got sick,and spent several weeks in bed,before she got back into the world.
