I have been having a lot
of fun with the glass bottom tray that Ginny of
"GiftsByGinny.com" made for me recently. I had some of
my Magic Nook helpers dig around in my attic for my old sťance
materials and set them up for me in my parlor, and by gum and by
gosh, they work beautifully with the glass Ouija... better than
they ever did with the wooden board, in fact. So I've been
rewriting my notes and am ready to present... from out of the
past with technology from the present... the Spider Ouija.
You'll probably want to start by getting my Glass
Ouija Board Design from Gifts By Ginny: http://www.giftsbyginny.com/trays.htm
You don't have to use that board, but when you get my e-Book I'll
be telling you all the reasons why a glass Ouija board is ideal
for this set up, and going on and on about it, so you might as
well get it while you can still get it at Ginny's low prices.
Also,you don't have to use my design for your board... Ginny will
engrave your Ouija Board with any design you send her as camera
ready art, so feel free to use my design as inspiration and then
change it to suit your needs.
Instead of a regular planchet, the Spider
Ouija uses a fake plastic spider. It could also be a real
spider if you have one lying about, but they tend to be pretty
brittle unless you encase them in plastic and then they become a
plastic spider, so what's the difference? To be perfectly honest,
you can use any small lightweight object as a planchet. My e-Book
suggests several more conventional planchets and you may decide
to use a rubber duckie, for all I care. The important thing is
that it must work with the Glass Ouija Board in terms of size and
being able to slide around the board and point to letters,
numbers, or the traditional symbols.
Then I show you how to activate the spirits of
plastic to make it move around on its own. "Magnets!"
cry the spectators, but I invite them to scientifically test for
magnets and they will find none. "Threads!" shout the
magicians, but I invite them to set up barriers that will detect
threads and they will find none. When everyone is finished
shouting, the room gets quiet again and the spider keeps happily
moving about and spelling out answers to questions given in the
room, leaving personal messages, etc. You work out what you want
to do with it; my job is to show you how. No electronics, no
radio controls, yet it works. You can build everything you need
for under $100 which includes the cost of one of Ginny's glass
trays designed to your satisfaction.
