This week on The Malliard Report we dive into the one of the most terror inducing, regularly vilified, and demonically charged pieces of cardboard and plastic marketed by Hasbro; yes, the Ouija board. Other than playing Monopoly with family members, never has a board game been more dividing among so many people. Is it really a gateway tool of the damned? Is it another form of ITC; no different than an SB-7, digital recorder, Wonderbox, or many other devices used today in paranormal research? Or is it one of the best and longest lasting marketing campaigns used by a toy manufacturer to date? This week’s guest on The Malliard Report, Karen Dahlman, dives right into the topic and provides some really good insight into the usage and history of the infamous Ouija.
“Karen is known as a leading, expert Ouijaologist. Since 1973, Karen has been directly communicating with her Spirit Friends via the Ouija® Board and through other means. She is a channel for a collective group of light beings of Source Wisdom who come forth to share the Wisdom of the Ages. Their divinely inspired messages help us discover our greatest joys and possibilities for living the life of our dreams through self-empowering choices. Currently, Karen continues to push the boundaries of consciousness as she explores, researches and communicates with this expansive and sentient Source energy. Karen is the host of Creative Visions TV where she further explores the unseen energies and dimensions with her guests.”
Depending on the school of thought, the roots of the Ouija board can be traced back to the rise of various mediumship techniques to come out of Victorian paranormal craze or various ancient channeling methods used across many different peoples from all around the globe. However, the demonization can very easily be traced back to a particular movie released in 1973. The priest hating, pea soup spitting phenom that swept theaters left a nasty mark on the Ouija’s reputation that is still felt to this day.
