Hand Crafted Spirit Boards That Are Magickally Charged
There are many physical items that will enhance spirit activity and attract spirits, thus improving the chances of spirit contact and communication while using the Ouija Board. Special items are often used in tangent with each other to create the best environment for a productive Ouija Board session. This is the reason I add nine (the number of the moon) of the following examples of moon elements to my planchettes and ouija boards at DragonOak's Wood Shop.
Silver has long been associated with the spirit world. Silvers use in magick has been long documented whether it was the use of a silver wand, a silver medallion, or a silver chalice. Since silver has the highest electrical conductivity of any metal it makes it easier for spirits to funnel energy through the metal. This energy is how the spirits manifest or are able to bridge the gap between the world of the paranormal and the world of physical reality. The higher the silver content the better.

2. Toadstool, mushrooms, and other plants that develop or bloom by the light of the moon.
The Ancients have long recognized plants that grow by the light of the moon as a key to opening doorways between the worlds. Moonflower is a species that opens its flowers to the light of the moon. The association of plants and moon is important when working within the realm of the moon.
3. Herbs that have a strong correlation to the moon.
Herbs can also be utilized in the live, dried, or incense forms in order to provide a more conducive environment while contacting spirits.
These herbs and oils work in two distinct ways while using the Ouija Board; first they provide a more ambient atmosphere that welcomes spirit contact; and second they stimulate the parts of our brain that is used while contacting spirits.

4. Cats or clippings of cat hair will create a strong spiritual connection.
Cats have long been believed to sense the spirit world and also it is believed by some that they can actually cross the veil between the two worlds. Some believe that cats can intercept negative energies or calm our energies with their aura.
The egg represents new life and the power of the Goddess. Eggs are used in divination to determine the sex of a child. Egg whites are dropped into a class of water to divine the shapes and forms made, similar to crystal gazing and scrying mirrors.
6. Oysters or Oyster shells
Oysters connection to the moon can never be denied. The oyster opens and feeds to the tidal cycles. The water it survives in is also connected the moon. When the oyster feels at ease it opens its shell and passively lets through the sea water and possible food. In case of danger the shell closes of course. The oyster will passively let in a lot of impressions, emotions, thoughts, feelings, fears, energies, etc.
Aristotle said that oysters during the full moon were meatier than other times. Science concurs this point.
Mirrors are two-way portals to the spirit world. Often spirits will utilize the mirror to create a form or forms in order to convey the message they are trying to send.
The history is that any reflect surface will work, including a bowl of water. Spirits can utilize the mirror as a door way and portal between the worlds, appearing as a form while usually unable to manifest into a full solid.
8. Crystal, Amethyst, and Moonstone
Specific stones have a strong connection to the moon. Often used in divination, dreaming, and other areas ruled by the moon. These stones are unique in structure and open portals between the worlds. Crystals and the crystal sub forms, amethyst and moonstone, channel and focus energy. Spirits can focus their energy and channel it via a crystal in order to make that communicative energy stronger and clearer. Much in the same way that crystals are used to focus and receive radio waves.
Crystal points are best when the point is directed at the Ouija Board from a neutral or person free area.
Any number of crystal, moonstone, and or amethyst, in stone form can be placed around the board in order to allow the spirit focus energy in the form of an energy field. These stones also have a purifying and cleansing ability to ward off negative energies.
9. Water is a must while using an Ouija Board.
Water has a strong connection to the moon. The moon controls the tides. Water can also act as a super conductor for energy flow.
Water is the element that transports the soul to the spirit world. The river Nile was the medium that transported the souls of the departed for the Egyptians., the Euphrates was the transportation for the Babylonians and several other ancient middle east cultures, and the river Styx was sacred for the Greeks and Romans. The ancients revered and respected water for they knew of waters connection to the spirit world.
Water is known to strengthen connections with ghosts, spirits, and divination. Many hauntings become stronger when a source of water is near. In some cased the water source may be underground.
The more the water the better even to the point of conduction a séance near water sources can be beneficial. Use a bowl of water, small house fountains, or even do a ritual bath or shower prior to using the Ouija Board.
10. Willow Tree
Willow has a strong connection to the moon. It usually grows near water sources; rivers, lakes, ponds, and even near surface ground water sources. Willows connection to water also represents that willow is the bridge between our world and the spirit world. The willow usually has its roots in the water while its trunk is in the earth and its branches are in the air. It has the ability to be pliable and bend with the wind, which represents an openness of mind and a creative energy.
Witches, druids, and others that follow the ancient paths know the strength of the willow tree and its connection that bridges both worlds.
The willow wand is usually sought out by the witches of today for its power and ability to focus smooth flowing energy between the spirit world and the human world.
