And by , Kennard and Bond were out, owing to some internal pressures and the old adage about money changing everything. In , with the blessing of Col. Bowie, the majority shareholder and one of only two remaining original investors, he licensed the exclusive rights to make the board. It was marketed as both mystical oracle and as family entertainment, fun with an element of other-worldly excitement.
The Ouija board appealed to people from across a wide spectrum of ages, professions, and education—mostly, Murch claims, because the Ouija board offered a fun way for people to believe in something. During the Great Depression, the Fuld Company opened new factories to meet demand for the boards; over five months in , a single New York department store sold 50, of them. Strange Ouija tales also made frequent, titillating appearances in American newspapers.
In , national wire services reported that would-be crime solvers were turning to their Ouija boards for clues in the mysterious murder of a New York City gambler, Joseph Burton Elwell, much to the frustration of the police. Ouija boards even offered literary inspiration: In , Mrs. Merrill, for his part, publicly implied that the Ouija board acted more as a magnifier for his own poetic thoughts, rather than as hotline to the spirits.
Ouija existed on the periphery of American culture, perennially popular, mysterious, interesting and usually, barring the few cases of supposed Ouija-inspired murders, non-threatening. That is, until Christian religious groups still remain wary of the board, citing scripture denouncing communication with spirits through mediums—Catholic. Even within the paranormal community, Ouija boards enjoyed a dodgy reputation—Murch says that when he first began speaking at paranormal conventions, he was told to leave his antique boards at home because they scared people too much.
In , rumors that Universal was in talks to make a film based on the game abounded, although Hasbro refused to comment on that or anything else for this story. Ouija boards are not, scientists say, powered by spirits or even demons. Ouija boards work on a principle known to those studying the mind for more than years: the ideometer effect. Almost immediately, other researchers saw applications of the ideometer effect in the popular spiritualist pastimes. The effect is very convincing.
As Dr. Moreover, in most situations, there is an expectation or suggestion that the board is somehow mystical or magical. Quite a lot, actually. The idea that the mind has multiple levels of information processing is by no means a new one, although exactly what to call those levels remains up for debate: Conscious, unconscious, subconscious, pre-conscious, zombie mind are all terms that have been or are currently used, and all have their supporters and detractors.
Two years ago, Dr. Sidney Fels, professor of electrical and computer engineering, began looking at exactly what happens when people sit down to use a Ouija board. Fels says that they got the idea after he hosted a Halloween party with a fortune-telling theme and found himself explaining to several foreign students, who had never really seen it before, how the Ouija works. After offering up a more Halloween-friendly, mystical explanation—leaving out the ideomotor effect—he left the students to play with the board on their own.
When he came back, hours later, they were still at it, although by now much more freaked out. A few days post-hangover later, Fels said, he, Rensink, and a few others began talking about what is actually going on with the Ouija. The team thought the board could offer a really unique way to examine non-conscious knowledge, to determine whether ideomotor action could also express what the non-conscious knows. Their initial experiments involved a Ouija-playing robot: Participants were told that they were playing with a person in another room via teleconferencing; the robot, they were told, mimicked the movements of the other person.
Were the Olympic Games held in Sydney? What the team found surprised them: When participants were asked, verbally, to guess the answers to the best of their ability, they were right only around 50 percent of the time, a typical result for guessing. But when they answered using the board, believing that the answers were coming from someplace else, they answered correctly upwards of 65 percent of the time. The robot, unfortunately, proved too delicate for further experiments, but the researchers were sufficiently intrigued to pursue further Ouija research.
They divined another experiment: This time, rather than a robot, the participant actually played with a real human. At some point, the participant was blindfolded—and the other player, really a confederate, quietly took their hands off the planchette. It worked. That was a good sign that we really got this kind of condition that people were convinced that somebody else was there. Those types of questions include how much and what the non-conscious mind knows, how fast it can learn, how it remembers, even how it amuses itself, if it does.
If it impacted the non-conscious earlier, Rensink hypothesizes, indications of the illness could show up in Ouija manipulation, possibly even before being detected in conscious thought. For the moment, the researchers are working on locking down their findings in a second study and firming up protocol around using the Ouija as a tool.
Just wondering if anyone else feel like "compression breakthrough? I mean, the way he described it, and how impossibly difficult it has been to get through the veil, from the inside out and outside in, in the past and, how much planning went on to this effort, and finally they got through!
When we look this kind of images, we feel some kind of nostalgic feeling. I have tears in my eyes, and i think how empty is this life here, where all what is good a pure is sacrificed for the evil without any rule to stop this action.

We love Gaia and we are forbidden of take care of Here, because some stupid guys have the remote control in their hands. Please send this message to the galactic brothers and sisters that have assisting us in various ways, tell to them that we love them and we know what their have doing to safe the Planet. We want to share with them our experiences and we have the will to learn with them new advanced technologies. Together we can turn this valley of tears in a "paradiso". People don't have jobs in my country, the youngest have the obligation to travel to other countries to get a job.
The parasites in power, they are the same at decades and it will continue if I'm sick of all this, i want the change! Blessing you all, Ar. Hello all -- what a wonderful experience Cobra had. I have been following this site for sometime but have to admit -- I really do not understand nor comprehend exactly what happened -- how -- or why? Could someone more understanding about the significance and meaning of this please fill me in? Thank you, namaste. My first thought was this was a message from the light to the world that changes are close at hand.
Meanwhile I'm seeing others on the net speculating this was an ominous warning from the cabal. In your opinion was this a message from the dark Wow, this is amazing! Great news! Thank you so much for sharing, Cobra! We are getting closer to freedom. Keep going. Cobra, congratulations on your wonderful space flight! After all your hard work you deserve it! However, I am confused about the actual size of the Veil. I thought that originally it was 8. Just how big is this Veil at the moment?
Oh Cobra! I am so happy you were released from the bounds of our planet to be allowed the honor of touching the energies of love. Thank you for sharing this journey with us and thank you to the Russian people that provided the opportunity. I feel we all will be called to do what you have done. My heart bursts with anticipation. Thank you for letting us post here Was South Africa another flight, or same type mission from the surface..? Can you give a detailed account of who controllers the space station, and why Why was project ITER started way back in the 80's by world leaders..? ITER also the nicest web site I've ever seen on the net Are you still free from the Matrix, or did you drop right back into it..?
Cobra, you are describing what people used to experience flying Concorde. I never had the opportunity to fly on Concorde as I could not afford it. While the angels float up in heaven, those on the earth prepare for death and total earth destruction. Dear friend, Don't let the Archons get to you.
This is a very delicate process! Good for YOU Cobra!!! I'm really happy for you! The Third Cobra conference in California is well overdue. These young people are very close committing a suicide. I cried a lot over these emails. I tried to calm them down, and give some hope to hold on. There is NO evidence to show them that A new bright day is to dawn soon.
These young people don't want to see nor stay in this NOW time on Earth which is filled with sufferings, struggles, tears, and violence. There's nothing to enjoy Most young people have to work for up to 12 hours per day!! And that is considered to be a lucky one, for they at least have a job These precious souls have NO plans, NO rosy hopes for the future. My heart is ready to burst and shatter into millions of pieces. This is a very, very, very horrible place to be I agree with jc asking where the galactic brothers are? How about the mighty Archangels and angels? Well, that's what they say ALL the time - We are one.
Hye angel, I can feel your pain. I am in a similar situation, watching friends and family suffer. Please, please ask your friends to stay alive, the darkness is most dense just before dawn. Hye Angel, I feel the same. It's nice to hear that someone has broken free. But it's also normal to wish you could do it. I would give anything to meet a benevolent galactic being just once and feel the love and knowing they have. It must feel so good to be free of this rats nest we call home. I used to be a shining light meditating for an hour at a time, patient and caring with people.
Now it feels like molasses just to close my eyes and focus on my breathing. Between the smart meters, microwave towers that stand about 10 feet from the ground for major impact, and now the radioactive Chemtrails raining down on us, I can feel myself, my hope, and my will slipping. We better get some help soon.
That's all I can say. And don't get me started on what it's like to watch my children struggle through the symptoms of being poisoned and attacked by an unknown and invisible enemy. Breaking a mothers heart Dear Cobra.

You should reply on this coment what Hye Angel wrote. Give her a little spark of hope.. Love Light! HYE ANGEL, not sure if you've had a chance to check further comments below but I've shared a list of many things within our immediate reach, to help us keep afloat without drowning before our major flight to freedom coming soon Thank you for being such a brave and selfless Light warrior and Angel.
Much Love. I just hope few people who incarnated from better areas of this horrible Universe will ahve a chance to escape. As for this world, for Earth - nothing is going to change. We only see words and promises and they expect us who are like animals awaiting slaughter in the slaughter house "to just meditate and change the world". I don't know but that Entity or whoever programmed creation in such a way is an idiot at best and a criminal, a serious, serial-killer type criminal to even allow this horrors to manifest in Creation. They claim "it's all just a quantum accident", so "it's no one's mistake" And Cabal are NOT the first culprit.
I knew there was a reason I kept coming back to this site. This confirms many things for me, and also opens up a great many possibilities. I am going through a somewhat difficult time early on in ; this gives me strength to help deal with certain issues before the time of the Event. Next time you are interviewed, or if you care to do it here on your blog, can you explain what you mean by feeling the Russians' "soul presence?
This a very beautiful picture cobra, thanks for sharing it with us. I once had dream where I was out of the matrix looking down at this beautiful planet along with a light being which somehow felt like it was me. It was very peaceful and wonderful, but can't compare it to the real deal as this picture shows.
Beyond the Veil of Stars by Robert Reed
Thank you for this cobra. Wow, this is the best ever for the moment. And is more than fascinating, it is Divine. Can other people do the same and how? I feel the same when I fly with a normal airplane above the clouds. Just the same feeling that I am high above besides the angels and other light beings and I am the only human being there Congratulations Cobra. A status update would be appreciated. Any comments on the recent bankers' suicides? Tachyons in my living room?
The removal of etheric parasites is usually performed in my country, Peru SA. Dear Cobra and pilot, since childhood I've dreamed of flying in those jets Thanks for sharing, beyond the Matrix! Thank you Cobra and RM and Russian Military for your dedication to the liberation of our planet and humanity! This one's for you Cobra! Maybe next time? It has nothing to do with a first or last The cabal is attempting to block all the rainbow energy of the Goddess that is now in the atmosphere to keep our DNA from changing by spraying all the chemtrails.
Cobra's perspective and input helps us feel it in the spiritual perspective rather than it all just being physical and 3D all the time. USE the videos and pictures to transport yourself and help heal this planet. We are a collective consciousness. When 1 goes, we all go.
When 1 awakes, we all awaken. Review the past without judgement. We are just gathering data to learn if we can sink so low to rise above. Welcome to the Spinning World. Namaskar Laura Hanora Birdsong Rice. If you are still here I wasn't aware that I got these many replies!! I wonder if meteorites that come from outer space to earth will have similar effects on cracking the Veil.
Klayman said the government is employing delaying tactics in the hope events overtake the proceedings. Cobra went into the Outer Atmosphere I could make a comment about me saving a lot of money by switching my car insurance to Geico I won't cause I didn't - However I don't see how this 'Event' helped anyone but Cobra. I mean if you simply said - Hey Gang! If anything - it just depressed me more that he's been "Beyond the Veil" - I didn't need to know that.
Until I see Mass Arrests of the Bad guys or gain "new powers" none of this affects me. I agree with you. I understand where you are coming from. I think that Cobra wanted to let us know what it is like outside of the Veil. How energizing, peaceful, and wonderful it is when we get away from all the negativity of Earth.
And he shared a photo so that we could share in the experience also- to give us hope of what is to come after the Even. And to also provide another way to put cracks in the Matrix, with the balloons and whatnot.
The Strange and Mysterious History of the Ouija Board
We are all too familiar with people like that- but I don't think Cobra is that kind of person. That would surely get everyone excited!! For example, the other day, I saw a video in which Q'ero in Peru conducted a Despacho ceremony to help release negativity I participated even though it was filmed back in Also, because we are essentially all sharing the "one" DNA i. It's called, "outside of the box. Cobra broke some barriers for all humans and it has helped ALL of us tremendously! Thank you, Cobra!! I didn't see this as bragging at all I see it as Cobra wanting us to know a the next step in the breaking down of the matrix was achieved, b give us real hope that if something like this can happen then real progress is being made, and c to inspire us to keep going and remember what we are working for.
Don't forget, when one of us breaks through, we all break through! It's one of our brothers breaking through the matrix! Cobra made difference in his world and now his world is different. It's simple. Have you made difference in your world or not? Cobra can not make the difference in your world, nor RM, nor even God hisself! Only you can!!! Cobra only can show you the way, you have to walk on it, by your own feet. Is it a good device for crack Veil?
If yes it could be a good alternative because very easy and cheap to build. I know, i know, once we've been given a TASTE of freedom, comparing to our empty and sad lives, it feels like torture, knowing about all the extraordinary technologies and possibilities and freedom and abundance and healing and joy and freedom and ecstasy and space travel and marvel and the love and the new experiences we will all get to live first hand, about how the entire planet will be freed and how enormously ecstatic ALL ANIMALS will also be when we will free them from our cages, plates and aquariums and slavery and exploitation and torture Even if now we feel completely drowned and hopeless.
Thank you UNplugging Wayshower for being a voice of reason and most of all thank you for the million ideas and suggestions to occupy ourselves with and make a positive impact. I love them all and will try some that I have not been practicing yet. Thank you Spirit Bear, your words of love are hugely appreciated. Always happy to share. Much Love:. I've been in a space travel ship with Cobra, a friend and seemingly the same team that was with him as he explained Thank you Cobra and RM for sharing, this is fantastic. Could you please give us or point us to some more detailed info on how to build the balloons so that we can contribute something to the liberation.
Meanwhile, I appreciate all the information and find several things about his post and his blast-off quite fascinating. Enjoyed Cobra's Feb. Thanks for that, Cobra and A selfie with Cobra is unlikely due to remembering him saying after The Event he goes off Planet Earth for other missions. And yes, the Russians, especially Putin work for the light! So these updates are some kind of indicator when The Event is likely going to happen due to weekly updates.
It isn't far-fetched for Cobra to take a trip on a Pleidian beamship and post pictures of the experience, but it could be very dangerous for him. Billy Meier took lots of pictures of Pleidian beamships small UFOs , a Pleidian female, Pleidian uniform, Pleidian hand weapon, and a hole that weapon shot through a tree. It is really fascinating. I think we want Cobra to be safe so probably no pictures like these until after the Event. Also, my opinion about Putin, he doesn't "work for the light"; he isn't a lightworker.
However, he really hates the dark cabal and would like to see them defeated, and is helping to get that done. But his reasons for doing this are more selfish than altruistic. Agreed Mitchell Tr. James Putin works for himself. But has aligned with the Light Forces to rid the world of the Cabal. I am sure he has his own ideas of how he wants to run things.
There are arch angels on the ground but there is much to undue. Darkness before dawn and it is just an appearance where it seems like it is just getting so dark this is the sign the sign of the new dawn for the matrix is unraveling eating itself until there is nothing left. Earth is a hotspot prime real estate being at the center of so many way portals and resources not to mention earths unique restorative transformational powers earth is merely kicking herself back into alignment even if that means severe earth changes.
What would you do if you were covered in cement so you could not breathe your oceans and waterways constantly being poisoned if it came down to survival would you not kick scream shake rattle roll do what ever was necessary to free yourself from your attacker!. The light et's are doing something but only from a distance for now because otherwise they would be at risk to being detected and their air crafts would be hit by laser beams from the cabal and the good et's do not wish to engage in a laser light war at this time only if it becomes necessary in self sefense.
They know all to well of the great astral plane war eons ago. The young light warriors if they lose hope and strength to continue on only need to acknowledge this: There are a few ancient old soul warrior's that have fought many planetary battles with their share of battle wounds on earth today and yes they could have given up many times but fought the good fight of light life liberty and justice and sometimes all that was needed was the little spark of hope that remained in them to continue on.
What is and has been transpiring on earth with the archon's and draco reps is not in a sense so bleek as it appears for the astral plane war was at least 10, times greater when it began roughly ten thousand years ago which began on one planet soon erupted on many other planets with tens of thousands of warriors on both sides fighting it out on a ground war soon Jedi's had to be called on engaged in a fierce laser war many were wounded on both sides.
The last planet to fight over in the line of events is the battle for earth. Because earth and it's solar body system has now collided in the galaxy of astral realms archon's decided to go after the 3rd mental realm. Some call it the battle for one's mind or collective mind we can see this today with mind control. The controllers will only make it worse for them as they delay their progress upon releasing their control on earth and it's citizens the more they abuse and control with new methods and tactics the more extreme they will for themselves which will be their own demise.
Get rid of all fears you citizens of earth even the fear of death for earth and prime creator knows there is no death only eternal life. I read many posts of people all over the globe saying why does God allow people to die to the contrary there is no death it is only a paradigm placed in the matrix and there is freewill but with freewill comes responsibility with what one creates.
Earth behind the scenes is becoming bright as the noon day sun. With all the bankers and politicians and law enforcement agencies fighting blaming turning against themselves let it be evil is eating itself for the fear they broadcast is now reflecting back to themselves this is the meaning the controlled will be controlled. This is a message of Love and Hope to G3's and lighter.
Please make your way to the safe-houses now if you so choose. Bring flow-ers or ice-cream in quietness and confidence. You deserve your Light and your Healing. I appreciate you. For the remnants - G4 and darker Sands are getting thin in the Glass. Now, I'm sad and really quite disappointed to have to write this, but there are Lx traitors among us. You want a sign and yet you have not perceived that one was already given! Your lack of awareness is NOT our responsibility. Stop your attacks and find your way to the Rail system now or be left behind. Free Will Choice. You have been warned.
Who would have foreseen the day that G's would be healed and blessed and L's would be sifted? Wow, thank you so much for sharing that Light Pillar link! That's so interesting and amazing! I'm disappointed that I missed it but that's so beautiful! Our galactic family are working really hard. Great news. I'll definitely keep a look out then for more light-sights. Cobra, Thank you so much for sharing this epic journey with us. Although we can be a tad bit envious, we realize that a Victory for one of us, is a Victory for us All. Our day will come, and we appreciate your acting in the role of pioneer to open up the pathway for all of humanity.
Much Gratitude for your dedicated service and committment and please continue to inspire us, and to show us what possibilities lie ahead. Much Love to All the Liberation Team! Thank you Cobra for giving us hope and inspiration. May we share one day soon with the rest of our citizens what you share with us. Cobra is a fine example among the many gives us a image of beauty and awe what lye beyond the controlled grid to keep in mind in connection to our heart chakra we may assist Cobra in projecting this image as the new paradigm in concert with the divine matrix.
Where attention goes energy flows. We are the big event not just mere observers some have come to participate. Light workers have done and continue to do a damn good job you can give yourself a pat on the back at any time. They say the will to live matters most some have given up a long time ago some are departing early getting tired frustrated when we are negative it seems the world owns us be positive stay positive no matter goes on in the world worn out beliefs systems and conditions dissolving in the next high tide.
One can be a mighty warrior with a peaceful central core. Manifesting abundance is an excellent approach to the money system because in the new world money will not be needed. The art of manifesting at will may be practiced until perfect results are obtained everything is possible. All events now are a part of the big event leading to the final finale.
We are only at the final end times of a zodiac sign sometimes this crossing over to a new sign has a smooth transition or catastrophic one. Wow, saying "Thank You" seems small, yet we are all ONE so we all have experienced what you experienced at some level of our BEingness. What UNplugging Wayshower above offers, in the way of positive ideas as to how to stay at a high level of happiness or positiveness, is wonderful.
Thanks for these ideas. Just inspiring to imagine lots of folks engaging in some of these things What we place our attention on begins to send out vibrations which in turn begin to attract back to us more of the same types of vibrations, in the ways of more ideas and even life experiences. This is what I know, each of us can prove this to ourselves. Keeping very awake as to just how much time we focus on any given thing, IF we find ourselves beginning to feel bad in any way, will help us get better and better at changing our focus of attention right then and there, to something better, something we feel good about.
WHAT are we thinking about, over and over and over? One thing I want to reiterate, which UNplugging Wayshower mentioned. Our actual diet choices are HUGE as to keeping our thoughts and feelings positive and uplifting for ourselves and for those around us. If we are choosing to stay far, far away from processed foods, from foods which have been grown commercially and often have GMOs in them, from animal foods even, even those animals who did lead a happy and healthy life, we can feel better and better.
If we do choose to eat animal foods, make sure it is from those sources where the animals were raised lovingly and healthfully. As we consume anything we can infuse it with our deep appreciation for it giving us nourishment. A tip about breathing: placing the tip of your tongue on the ROOF of your mouth, just behind your teeth, does help keep our energy flowing more completely. It has 6 tracks on it, the first 2 are introductions.
I absolutely love these. And there is a rhythm of musical tones behind the words which help one breath very consciously. I did resist aligning with this at first, but finally paid attention to this and it does make a huge difference. Oh, by the way, as we keep our bodies clean and healthy, especially the gut the colon and small intestines where most of our immune system is located, this affects our thoughts, and the quality of our thoughts rise considerably.
Doing a cleanse really is helpful. Lots of good ones out there. Begin on any day but the first day of a month is a good beginning, or a New Moon perhaps. You will feel better. Yes, this is a tall order of change for many of the people, yet taking small steps can work well. Doing things for others sure is a great way to be happy. Laugh more. My husband and I love to snowboard and soak in hot springs. I'm only further expanding on the latest movement taking place in our world, which is best expressed in your phrase: "If we do choose to eat animal foods, make sure it is from those sources where the animals were raised lovingly and healthfully.
The danger in prolonging our planetary anony and healing is by precisely creating a "new", "conscious, humane" way of further exploiting sentient beings and destroying our world.
