I am a member of a Meetup group that gathers monthly at Circles Of Wisdom in Andover, MA. It is a paranormal study group led by my friend and the fearless leader of the New England Ghost Project, Ronald Kolek. On the 3rd Tuesday of every month we look into all sorts of things within the realm of the paranormal.
At December’s meeting we conducted psychometry experiments, dowsing experiments, remote viewing experiments and even tested the validity of a “psychic party game”. We then took out one of the tools in my bag, The Psychic Circle.
The Psychic Circle is an oracle board, similar to a Ouija board. The difference is, with the Psychic Circle you open and close every session with a prayer of protection, and there are several modes of communication printed on the board. There are zodiac symbols, colors, words, picture symbols, elements, compass symbols as well as numbers and letters.
The common complaint about oracle boards, is that someone could be manipulating the answers that are presented. I was on the board with three other people whom I completely trust. None of us would manipulate the board. What would be the reason to manipulate the board in the first place? We are trying to communicate with spirit. What would anyone have to gain by spelling out answers?
I decided to secretly test a person’s ability to manipulate the planchette. I was not trying to be malicious, I just wanted to know if it could be done. I was suprised by the results.
I attempted 2 times to willfully stop the circular disk. I could not stop it on any desired part of the board. It took an extreme amount of pressure to affect the speed of the planchette, and it would eventually stop, but no where near where I wanted it to stop.
I attempeted to “steer” the disk toward a particular word on the board. I could not.
I am a completely honest person. All I have is the truth. Honesty and personal integrity are the two most important qualities a person can posess. I hold and protect these personal traits above all others. I feel a little dirty with this experiment, but I could not let anyone know my intentions, otherwise they may have “allowed me to manipulate” the outcomes.
I am happy to report, that the experiment was a complete success. My findings are that the board could NOT be manipulated at will.
I have always trusted The Psychic Circle and will continue to use it as a valued tool. Now my trust has been confirmed and my confidence in the board strengthened.
Now, for believing everything that the spirit world tells me….. That is a whole new kettle of fish.
