For starters, there are many different methods in disposing of the Ouija Board. However, there is no proven method that works in disposing of the Ouija Board. As Queen of Horror, I will be telling you all of the potential methods in disposing of the Ouija Board as well as the possible concerns of what will happen if that method is used. On top of that, I will be telling you guys my best recommendations for what I would do if I needed to dispose of a Ouija Board. Do be warned: If you try any of these methods and they go wrong I am not held responsible for it. I am not telling anyone to try these things but these are the things I have heard over the years on how to dispose of a Ouija Board. Anyways, feel free to try any of these methods if you need to dispose of a Ouija Board but do it at your own risk!
Disposal Method #1: Burn the Ouija Board
This is a very popular method that people use to dispose of the Ouija Board. It is said that if you use this method to dispose of the Ouija Board it will destroy the portal and will get rid of the spirits released from it. On top of that, in many religions it is believed that burning things gives things purity. (Ex: the reason why they burned people at the stake during the Salem Witch Trials) However, some people believe by burning the Ouija Board it will release all of the evil spirits and they won't go away. My personal thoughts on this method are I do believe burning it will work if done properly (keep reading to know what I mean by "done properly").
Disposal Method #2: Break the Ouija Board in Half
This is another common method that people try to use when disposing of the Ouija Board. It is believed that if a person breaks the Ouija Board in half it will close the portal and rid the evil spirits. However, most do not believe this is an accurate method because they believe it just releases the spirits. My personal thoughts on using this method are if you decide to use it and you just break the board in half, more than likely it will release spirits. I would say if you decide to use this method, take the following procedures alone so you don't get possessed.
Disposal Method #3: Leave it alone or throw it away
This method right here is commonly the method that inexperienced people use when it comes to the Ouija Board. I am not even going to tell you how this could be a good method; I am just going to tell you how and why this method can go wrong. For starters, if you use a Ouija Board and leave it in the room you are sleeping in, it will most likely affect your sleeping patterns such as causing nightmares, waking up during the witching hour, and as a whole making you depressed and giving off negative energy. If you decide to throw the Ouija Board away, it's not really going away. Instead, you are just moving the Ouija Board into a different location. It has been said for some people that when they threw the Ouija Board away it just came back, so this method really is not a good idea to use.
Disposal Method #4: Split, Holy Water, and Bury
While none of these methods are guaranteed to work, this method appears to be a safer one to use. For this method it is said to take the Ouija Board and split it into seven pieces. After you split it in half pour holy water on top of it. After doing that it is said to bury the seven pieces in different areas. Looking at this method, I would consider using it, however this is not my preferred method to use.
Disposal Method #5: Split, Burn, Holy Water, Spread and Bury
Out of all of the methods I have seen and spoken about, this is the method I would personally use if I had to dispose of a Ouija Board. For this method, similar to the last one, you first split the board in half (or seven pieces, whichever you prefer) after that you burn the pieces of the Ouija Board. Once you burn the board to its entirety, collect all of the ashes and pour holy water over them. After that, take the ashes and put them into a few different bags. Once you do that, bury the ashes in different locations. The reason why I like this method so much is because you are purifying the board to its entirety, and by splitting it up so much it is making it close to impossible for the board or the spirits to come back. If I had to get rid of a board, this is the method that I would use. A tip for using this method is if you want you can pour holy water on the board before burning it or even before splitting it in half. Or to be on the extra safe side pour holy water on the board before splitting it, before burning it, and after burning it. You can also use this tip for the other disposal methods if you wish for the extra safety of keeping the evil spirits away.
Disposal Method Tips:
Don't show any fear when disposing of the board. You have to hide your fear and try to remain confident or you put yourself at a higher risk for the spirits getting attached to you before getting rid of the board.
Before doing any of these methods you can pour holy water on the board.
Keep holy water near by when disposing of the board in case anything goes wrong.
Don't be afraid to have a crucifix or a cross nearby; holy objects are not an enemy.
Keep salt nearby or form a salt circle around yourself when disposing of the board.
If you feel scared to do it alone, have a friend with you. Just make sure to explain to your friend what to do to prevent things from going wrong.
If any of the disposal methods you try fail, get a priest to bless your house.
If everything ends up failing, it might be a good idea to move somewhere else.
If you try any of these methods and something goes wrong, Queen of Horror is not responsible and I by no means am telling you to use these methods, I am just giving my advice on what I heard and what I would do.
