READER | Should I communicate with spirits using a Ouija board?

Hannah Gutierrez demonstrates a spiritual maturity rarely found in young people by asking for advice before endeavoring in communication with spirits in her message posted to the Facebook group, PARANORMAL:

In her post, she states that she wants to get a Ouija board to communicate with the spirits in her home:

I Want To Get An Ouija Board!! & Communicate With The Spirits In My House Easier!
Although it is not clear how many of members of this group have actually communicated with spirits in this way, it seems like some are encouraging her, even while warning her of the dangers at the same time:

When you decide to do that Please Please have a Experienced Person there Hannah you do not want to open pandoras box Get a person there with you that is experienced in that Like a Medium
What is clear, however, is that spirit communication is the hottest topic right now among those interested in the paranormal. Hannah's post drew over 20 responses in just two days, compared to the average of less than one response to any other post in paranormal-related groups on Facebook; and, in spite of a plethora of videos showing actual demonic entities, posts that describe things that demons have said to me or others, such as Stalkers from Hell: The Psychology of the Voices Demons, rank fifth among readers as the most popular, and generally garner more readers than any other type of post, except for posts related technology, crime, religion, and injury—which also don't show any videos of actual demons, in-the-flesh.

Hannah initially resisted the multitude of warnings in her next post, which illustrates the reason why many take an interest in spirit communication, specifically, curiosity:

You Can't Make Peoples Decisions! They Have To Make Them There selves!! I Need To Do It My Self In Order To Find The Truth Out!! Maybe A BUNCH Of Evil/Negative Spirits Are Just Around You, & That's Why You're Experiencing More Extreme Stuff...

Have Any Of You Guys Used It Before? If You Didn't You Don't Actually Know WHAT Will Happen! You Can't Just Go By What Other People Say! You Need To Experience It For Yourself, Before You Can Actually SAY All These HORRIBLE Things Happen!!! Plus Not Everybody Tells The Truth!!...
In defiance of its popularity, the encouragement of others, and Hannah's determination to communicate with spirits, other members explicitly stated that communicating with spirits is a no-win proposition:

To tell you the truth.. As University Trained Anthropologist with a minor in Para-Psychology and as Pagan and Witch for 25 years. We did not mess with Ouija Boards unless under EXTREME Spiritual Protection, Protective Rituals and such.. Its a very Serious matter to mess with one.. and if not done properly.. Well your just begging for trouble. To use the analogy of your home. Using a Oujia board is exactly like unlocking all your doors and windows and putting out a welcome mate “Free to enter” The spirit world is just like ours you have nasty spirits and good spirits. And ALL of them will hear your invite. The problem is you don’t know nor do you have control over who steps over your threshold and into your house as a guest. Oh sure its fun to have someone accept that invite and stop by. BUT you have NO WAY of knowing their intent. .. That way your own spiritual beliefs are IMPERATIVE you have to throw up some protection and be very careful about who shows up. Literally there are being out there in the astral that literally feed off of the negative emotions, such as fear, anger, hate and yes even violence.. And if they are the ones that show up.. They WILL manifest that energy in your earthly lives.

hey a word of warning using that way of communication to talk to spirits can really be dangerous because of the fact that u invite them in that doesnt mean they will leave when u want them too they can sometimes stay as long as they want and make your life a living hell be careful k...........
My response was biblical, as should all things spiritual be:

Jeetendra is exactly right! Have nothing to do with spirits in any way, shape or form. Pray to God instead. He's the only spirit you need to talk to, and the only spirit who can help you if you get yourself into the kind of mess you will be in if you get into trouble.
It seems that, eventually, Hannah partially agreed:

Yeah, I Hear The Warnings About Ouija boards & How Bad Things Could Happen, But If I'm Already Experiencing Weird Things, Why Would It Be Extremely Bad? The Spirits That Are With Me Aren't Really Mean/ Or Aggressive Towards Me! I Just Want To See If It Tells me It's Name & Communicate With It More!! (To Know More About It/Them) & Show The Rest Of My Family That These Things are Real!! My Mother Used an Ouija Board When She Was A Teenager With Her Family!..But Then Again She Didn't Hear Voices Or Experaince The Same Things I Do! But I Want To Get It, :b So Confusing!

Ok,I Won't! It's Different For Different People! So I Won't REALLY KNOW Unless I TRY! ( NOBODY Knows UNLESS THEY TRY!!! ) My Mom Did It When She Was a Young Teenager, & Nothing Extremely Bad or Even BAD Happened To Her!!! I Asked Her! Something Did Answer her questions Though But Nothing else happened!! So It Vary's From Different People & The Spirits That Are With Them!...maybe it's Not even something new, maybe it's just something that's been there but no one had experanced anything until they got the board! because the spirits probably realize NOW they can talk through it!
But, what Hannah and others like her need to do is get in full agreement with God: 
Do not turn to mediums or seek out spirits, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God … I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people.
Leviticus 19:31, Lev. 20:6
Let no one be found among you ... who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord, and because of these detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you.
Deuteronomy 18:10-13
When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.
Isaiah 8:19-20
If she does not, the results could be just as bad as those who warned her said they would be:

Besides, no spirit needs a Ouija boards to communicate, anyway. They can speak aloud, and normally, just like people.

There are, of course, the ones that speak too high or low, too fast or too slow, such as the demon in this audio recording:

But, just like the one in this recording, I promise you, any demon is as evil as the day is long; but, the ones that don't (or can't) speak your language or can't easily be heard by the human ear will hurt you physically.

So, the rule of thumb in practice is: any spirit who requires the use of a Ouija board will hurt you. And, the more you communicate with them, the stronger your tie will become.
