Ouija: Life (1 of 3) Ouija boards have long since been a staple in the world of superstition. Perhaps the possibility of conjuring an unfavorable spirit is enough to entice the curious into believing that the talking board is a gateway to another plane of existence. “Ouija: Life” centers around the egg as a sacred object. This is no ordinary egg. In Egyptian belief, the common ostrich egg appeared in the creation myth as a sign of life and rebirth. On average, ostrich eggs are twenty times the size of a hen’s egg, can feed 10 people and weigh approximately 3lbs.

Ouija: Death (2 of 3) Respect for the power of the Ouija board is paramount. Acknowledgement of its capabilities and complexities are the cornerstone of its usage. Much like our own mortality, we do not need to understand it fully to embrace it. Common superstitions surrounding the omen of death have been affiliated with bats. Sometimes, they are known as the "Guardian of the Night." It is largely misunderstood and so therefore many of its symbolic meanings are inappropriately fear-based. The bat is a symbol of rebirth and death because it is a creature that lives in the belly of the Mother (Earth).

Ouija: Rebirth (3 of 3) The makers of the first talking board asked the board what they should call it; the name “Ouija” came through and, when they asked what that meant, the board replied, “Good luck.” In many ways, Ouija boards give another chance to the spirits of the afterlife to communicate with the world of the living. The black cat has been ingrained in the many cultures, some as good luck and some as bad luck. They hold the symbolism of rebirth and resurrection, as the myth of nine lives is a popular one. There is an ancient proverb that claims, “A cat has nine lives. For three he plays, for three he strays and for the last three he stays."
