What is it about Ouija boards that make people fearful, is it because they are unsafe or evil or is it ignorance of the tool used for Mediumship?

What I didn’t know back in 1972 is that the Ouija was once considered a spiritual tool used as a means to communicate with someone who is dead, and became popular during the Spiritualist Movement in the United States during the mid-19th century.  Methods of divination during this time used various ways to spell out the messages, sometimes using a pendulum which swung over a plate that had letters painted around the edge. Most often used was a wooden tablet with caster attached. The tablet called a planchette was affixed with a pencil that wrote out the messages much like automatic writing. The methods mentioned above may predate modern Spiritualism. It was used for the purpose of bring spirit through to receive messages. Spirit Boards were used to channel a spirit while using the board.

Ouija boards are one of the tools used to open Mediumship ability, it is not a toy. The board itself has no special powers, neither does the planchette.
