How to Break a Connection With a Ouija Board

Spirit communication dos and don'ts

What should you do with a Ouija board once you’re finished using it?

While researching my post on Zozo, the Ouija board demon, I came across some interesting advice about what a person should do once he or she decides to end spirit communication. How do you break that connection with the other side?

Closing the Connection

There are certain rules you should follow when dealing with a Ouija board, or so I’ve heard. One is that you should never use it in your house. Another is to never allow the planchette to move forwards or backwards through every letter of the alphabet or every number — a trick Zozo allegedly uses to escape the board.

But the rule in question here is perhaps the most important one of all: make sure the planchette hits “Goodbye” before ending your session.

Failure to do so may lead to unintended consequences, like an angry spirit overstaying its welcome. If a dark entity does cross your path, sever the connection with the Ouija board immediately. Tell the spirit you no longer wish to speak with it, and if it refuses, force the planchette to “Goodbye” yourself. Then remove the planchette from the board.

This should break the connection, and the Ouija board should be “closed.” Store it by wrapping the planchette in cloth, separate from the board. Then, put them together in a safe place.

But what if you no longer want the Ouija board around?

Never burn it. It’s said that doing so would mean you’d be haunted forever. Instead, if you’d like to get rid of the Ouija board entirely, bury it in the ground (some recommend cutting it up into seven pieces before doing so, some don’t), and remember to keep the board and the planchette separated. Sprinkle the ground above with Holy Water, and also use some to cleanse the area where you used the board.

Despite all of this, there are others who claim that once a connection with the spirit world is made, it can never be undone. Your fate, from the moment you use a Ouija board, is bound to the other side.

  1. If your not sure how to close a ouija board session call upon a medium to make sure that you didn’t open a portal or let any negative spirits through, they will help you.

  2. I wish I knew this before, because last year I had a very scary experience with a Ouija board and so.. I burned it. FML.

      1. what was the original incident if you dont mind me asking? sorry about the late reply lol

  3. I was involved in the occult as a child. Closing the session with “goodbye” may end the session but it does not deal with the open door left by the practice of divination. The reason evil entities can attach themselves to someone is because the practice of divination carries with it judgment. The attachment is based on legality. It has a right to stay unless the behavior is renounced, and the sin addressed. All demonic entities must comply with the authority of Jesus. They have no ability to resist that name. There are good resources online “The Bondage Breaker” by Neil Anderson is a good tool. It is a simple guided step by step system for removing the legal attachments and it works. If you are scared you can contact a church. Not all churches deal with demonic entities. You don’t have to go to a Catholic church. Just call churches and ask. Some churches have prayer teams and people who have experience dealing with “spiritual warfare.” In the end though, it is simply Jesus who sets the person free. It’s not the church. Ask him to lead you.

    1. Very true. Experienced in this myself and those who are not saved and covered by the redemptive power through Jesus are most at risk for real and serious consequences and danger in thinking they can control a demon in any way once the open door and legal right has been given. The legal right is given by a persons choice and will to seek the occult through divination in any form. Demons NEVER , repeat NEVER have good intentions for you other than to steal, kill, and destroy. They can appear as an angel of light initially in order to deceive you then destroy you. There is no talking with the dead, you are communicating with familiar spirits ( see what the bible has to say about this) that are assigned to deceive you through plausible and real generational information ( they’ve been around through the ages) they do not change their deadly play book- they only have new generations of people to play. But it’s not for “play” , but for keeps , to destroy your soul by keeping you in darkness and deception. Demons tremble at the name of Jesus, and will never admit that Jesus came in the flesh and is the son of God. They despise scriptures about the blood of Jesus.

      A blood bought christian , who is truly a child of the king can cast them out through Jesus but no one who fears The Lord should ever want or attempt to call upon a dark entity without expecting eventual or immediate havoc

  4. I once had a Ouija board when I was younger. I brought it into the house and my mother demanded that I throw it away. I did at first, but I felt like I needed to take it out of the trash right after. So I did, then I took it outside. It was weird, I was doing these things, but I wasn’t really DOING them. It was almost as if someone was telling me to do it. Anyways, after I took it outside, I grabbed a pickaxe (we had no shovel) and I started to dig a hole, you know, to bury it. As I was doing this, I felt this sort of presence behind me. It was warm, not comforting, but not unsettling, either. Remembering it now, my mind has personified the presence as a tall black figure,Wearing a trenchlike coat, stooped over and looking over my shoulder as I dug. Unfortunately, my brother took the board from me before I could finish, and he gave it away. This might sound made-up, but after he took the board from me, I felt panicked. Like I was infuriating something and I knew that I shouldn’t. But I also felt ashamed. Like I had just disappointed someone who really trusted me. I kinda wish I would have finished the hole, though.

    1. Can you explain how you were able to describe what he was wearing????…
      Please, this is a very extremely serious question.

      1. Perhaps Nobody Owens is clairvoyant but doesn’t know it and saw with his third eye, which shows you pictures or visions in your mind of things. I know this cause i am a clairvoyant and a empath which also may be and this is why he could feel what he felt. Look up Anna Sayce , she explains it pretty good.

    2. Wow! I had nightmares, years ago, after a very close friend passed away. At first I saw my friend in the dream, that I had for a week straight. But then an evil entity entered my dream. It turned into a nightmare I can never forget. This evil entity wore a black cloak and took the place of my friend. I confronted it. In this extremely, vivid, nightmare the entity ran away from me.
      10 Years later my daughter played the Quija board with friends. She came to me and confessed. (Going back to her childhood days she also had nightmares which I refuse to discuss.). She said, “mom, remember my nightmares from “when I was a baby”? They’re back.
      She also had the same entity in her nightmares now. I was livid!
      I challenged thus entity, went to Catholic Church, obtained a special prayer and Holy water. My daughter and I blessed the house with holy water while praying. The entity was gone. Forward to five or so years, we moved. My daughter had the same exact nightmare of this entity, feeling paralyzed, while it tried to pull us off of the bed by our feet. I began to pray. I tried calling out to my daughter, in my dream, but I was “paralyzed” and could not scream. I had NO idea that my daughter, at the time, had the same nightmare. (Read ending.)
      I went back to church, obtained holy water, the same prayer and blessed our new home. The entity vanished forever. Until this past Saturday, which is over 20 years now. My daughter and I went to the Big E. We hadn’t had a lot of time, lately, to sit down and “talk”. Always so busy
      We finally sat down to have a bite to eat and talk. Much to my surprise and horror, she said, “mom, I feel those nightmares are trying to come back”. I knew what she meant. She refuses to acknowledge this entity but knows it’s still there!!!! She says she can feel it in the pit of her stomach. Time for more Holy water and prayer! This time I will not stop!

  5. What happens when you rip the board into three then leave it in an abandoned mental asylum?

  6. Exactly true. Once you open Pandora’s box you can’t close it or put back what u took out for the most part…

  7. Im in need of someone to confide in with my past experiences I don’t need no fakes I need proper person that knows what there talking about I used a Ouija board 5 times nd I was told to leave 5 times and I had no soul then it landed on goodbye I have also something I won’t write on here so please do contact me if u feel ur the real thing I dont want to bother it anymore than I already have please

    1. It could possibly be an ancestor of yours stopping you from the ouija board as you never know what entities you have called through one as it is a gateway for all types of spirits and evil spirits tend to cling to it , if nobody would talk to you you have a strong ancestor or spirit guide stopping you from causing any harm to yourself by calling a dark entity in to talk, a spirit is blocking you from doing anything on the board, this is because it is trying to protect you

    2. (Forgive me for such a lengthy reply, but it is the help I may offer through the experiences/knowledge I have received/learned. I have made/’played’ Ouija boards in the past, and have a relatively high experience/knowledge when it comes to demons; whom I have not only had relationships/conversations with in the past, but have also had to cast away…both for various reasons…I truly hope you are able to push through this message until the end; may it help you in some way).
      I’m not sure if you’ve received the help you’re looking for yet, but I have a lot of personal experience with demons. Instantly, it was clear- with every fiber in my body that this was a malevolent spirit (demon). For passed loved ones (those who are in heaven), would not speak through ‘spirit boards’. They are a part of the ‘occult’ and those things are not holy. Therefore, someone who is in Heaven (is holy) would not speak to you in that manner. Loved ones, and the Lord will ‘speak’ to you in a various different manners; but never from ‘spirit boards’. (I receive messages from butterflies, feathers, sometimes even a certain time will lead me to scripture, etc…) It seems to me that it tells you to ‘go away’ and that you ‘have no soul’ for a few possible reasons. 1: it is trying to make you worry, doubt, feel something negative, etc… 2: it is trying to tempt you to come back for ‘answers’. They are more clever than we may think, and many have been alive for thousands of years. Each time you come back, you are potentially giving it more power. They are very patient beings and will wait as long as it takes for their chance; no matter how small that chance, or how long it takes. Almost like the butterfly effect- these beings are able to see and understand the makings of even the smallest moments and details, and how they build or add up. This is due to the fact that the ‘fallen’ have the knowledge of light and darkness in some ways, for they used to be angels; therefore have retained the knowledge they learned as angels. (They can be very wise, very clever, and they do not foget a single moment in time. Neither angle’s, nor a demon’s mind grows foggy or forgets a single moment; as humans and other creatures may. This is why they may pose as a being or angel of light so convincingly, and give advice or help that may seem ‘helpful’. This may be done for various reasons, a common one; to gain trust in them so they may ‘infiltrate’ more successfully. Fortunatley, they do not possess the complete power of angels because they are no longer followers of God. Their source of power is derived from Darkness, but they still have great power over those who do not follow God themselves because they are not protected by the power of God; for God’s followers have the power of ‘light’ (God’s power aka holy spirit), and His power is stronger than that of Darkness. Those that were created by the ‘fallen’ (who are pure darkness), are taught by Satan and his angels (aka the fallen). Thus, are just as dangerous and should not be underestimated. You are human; therefore you have a soul, and I would take very good care of keeping it pure. It is unlikely that any human is ‘soulless’; for even if you sold your soul, you would not lose it instantly (unless you died thereafter… ) It would mean you have entered a binding contract with that demon or whoever you have sold it to; handing over ownership of said soul. You have free will so you may do this. Once you die, if ownership still belongs to them (as in; you have not redeemed it through the Lord); it will end up under their reign, where they reside: Hell. (It-meaning you; for we are spiritual beings inside of physical bodies- unlike angels and demons who are initially in spirit; not flesh) Be reassured that you were designed out of love, and for a place of pure love; created by a God that loves you and wants you to go to eternal peace. Not their domain, (where you may be somebody’s ‘plaything’, and not in a fun way. At least, not for you…) Free will and love are tricky-but wonderful things. If you learn to understand them, and the consequences of misusing or misunderstanding them, a multitude of things will become much clearer…Do not forget that this life is temporary, and a chance for every human to prepare themselves for what realm they may be heading for (good or bad; depending on our choices…) The trueness of everything is eternal. It is merely what is inside this realm (the universe) that seems to decay or be temporary… Your soul however, is not ‘temporary’. It is even more eternal than Heaven; for even Heaven itself will eventually come to pass…sooner than we may think…In ‘The End’, true Love will prevail, and in the ‘New Beginning’-all that is wicked shall be no more; this I assure you. In the meantime: I’d give up the ‘boards’. Once you ‘see’ ‘it’, the ‘conversations’ of life are much more enjoyable and fulfilling. These ‘conversations’ can be found nearly anywhere and everywhere…from the towering trees whose leaves are rattled by the wind, and carried throughout the land- to the moving stream whose fish swim about, glittering under the sunlight. You may find them in your backyard amongst a feather that has dropped, or the dragonfly that darts by the floating butterlies; whom also may speak to you. For He is all around us. Should you open your heart, your mind may be opened as well; for then your eyes may be opened and you shall see the true voice of life. May your ears hear the true voice of life; should you truly listen to the One who created it all, and grow wise with His knwoledge. And should your heart be opened; may it long for the true ‘life’ of the life around you. May you see all that is truly valuable and dear; what is everlasting in its trueness into the next life, may it be eternal. For even that which may appear to decay; may carry on forever and ever, and one day this will all make sense. Whether it be in this life, of the next. Should it be in this life; may you have peace until you carry on into the next. This life is so much more than we may perceive, and fuller than we may conceive. Put Love above all else; all else will follow. I believe in you. Do not be afraid. Your spirit is like that of a warrior; carrying on even past this battle we may call life. I cannot wait to see all you may become, all that you are, and all that you have journied through this battle. For even if we do not win every battle, we will surely win the ‘war’. And still, every battle won is a glorious victory; no matter how short or long it may last. No matter how small or great they may seem; all are seen and are cherishable, more than anyone could imagine.
      Sincerely: a veteran of a battle I am still fighting; for me- until the ‘war’ is won.

  8. Hii me and my frds had use ouija yesterday in middle of the conversation the coin starts moving in circle what does it mean came anyone help me

    1. It means that the evil spirit is coming through its portal to harm u and others around u so be careful

  9. How about never playing with a Quija board! Crazy and plain stupity. Should be banned from stores!
    It is very scary…

    1. Who summoned you and your unwanted opinions here, they should say goodbye. We all know the risks and we all have our reasons.

  10. There are prayers, which the Catholic church can give you and holy water. You must pray, with your family, while sprinkling the holy water from room to room. It worked for me. Had to do it twice. I’m free.

    1. so ive been wanting to buy a ouija board for a while now and everyone is telling me not to. My wife wants nothing to do with this and even though i kind of want to do what i want i always feel like something in the back of my mind is telling me not to play with things that i dont understand so would anyone say thats its best if i just leave these kinds of things alone. like i want to get into the paranormal but something keeps telling me i shouldnt.

      1. Yes, Josepf, leave it alone. The Ouija board is a very evil and demonic force
        which will be nice and friendly at first but after it gets you hooked you not be able to escape its power unless you pray in the name of Jesus for it to leave.
        Just tonight I watched this free film/movie entitle OUIJA which is very well
        acted. Just watch it if you want proof of how dangerous and evil the ouija
        board actually is. The bottom line is that most people are deceived about what happens when a person dies. Evil spirits can imitate a person’s voice and very appearance so you cannot tell he difference. The Bible clearly teaches “The dead know not anything.” Ecclesiastes 9:5, 6 and v. 10. When a person dies his breath goes back to God and his body goes to the grave and stays there. The soul is simply the person which is a combination of the Breath of life and the body. When the breath goes back to God the body goes to the grave and dust and soul ceases to exist. If you wish more info you can write to me at: my web site is Your friend, Pastor Mike Clute.

  11. My brother made an Ouiji board and it worked. I know it did because I held a coin(my dead grandfather gave me, my brother knows nothing of it), and asked what it said. It stated the words and tried to move through the numbers. I stopped it and freaked out. My brother tried to play it alone so I hid it in my room and now I refuse to enter my room and try to get out of the house as often as I can. I have no clue how to rid of it or who to give it to(if it’s an option). I need help. Asap.

    1. If you memorized what it said and were thinking about it when you asked the question it could’ve been a demon answering you. They can read thoughts

  12. I’m scared cause someone I knows ain’t burned the ouija board and she has a voice in her head, what do i do?

      1. Hey I made a comment on this thread with a concern I have with an old oujia portal that I believe is open still. Read it and tell me what you think. You seem knowledgeable 😊

  13. I’ve used a Ouija board before. I’ve heard you can’t get rid of one once you do but had no trouble getting rid of it once I decide to

    1. IIIII think you mean pentagram, not pentacle. But I could be wrong. -\_(._.)_/-

  14. 20 years ago in the my baby witchling years I played with a oujia board with some friends. Long story short bad luck and horrible crisis after crisis and chaos ensued. It affects me and my mother and destroyed my father to his death. Now it’s affecting my daughter. It just dawned on me that I never shut that portal that night. What can I do or attempt to do?

    1. Go to church. Pray and make sure you tell them they aren’t welcome in your home. Never show fear. Not sure if you’re religious but I got rid of an entity with prayers and holy water. Must pray with whole family in every room and sprinkle the holy water as you’re going along. It all depends on how strong your entity is. If it killed your father you should go visit a priest.

  15. What should I do please someone TELL ME!!!!
    The ouijia board said that we are i DANGER what should I do please SOMEONE TELL ME> :(

    1. I’m trying to sign in from this email account but you have the wrong email in my settings? Please reset my password.

      Thank you,
      Denise Millet

  16. bless your house trust me it helped me if that doesnt work that means that you havent disposed of the ouija board or any demonic thing. getting salt water and rubbing it on your belonings will help.
