Chapter 1


"Seek truth and ripe dreams will follow."

Excerpt from authors' talking board session, November 26, 1977

You and Your "Psychic Circle" of Friends

Give yourself permission to take a little vacation from the world of things to do and remember! Plan to hold your session during a time you will not be interrupted. The room should be quiet and the lighting comfortable.

Have pen and paper or a tape recorder nearby to record your answers. For future reference, either you or one of your "psychic circle" of friends should keep records of the information you receive. Always make sure that the date, place, time, and people present are noted somewhere on your record. Though you may think that this is a bother, you will be very thankful that you took the time to record your sessions. Amy and I are continually surprised and delighted by the treasures we find "mining" our notes.

We have found that, although many people are capable of operating The Psychic Circle with only their own hands on the indicator, the best results are obtained when another person is in the room as a participant in the session. The presence of two energies seems to have a beneficial effect. The other person can also assist with the recording of the session, suggest questions, and offer a different point of view on the answers received.

The size of your "psychic circle" is up to you. Some people suggest limiting it to four people, but we have found that it is the quality of the people present and not the quantity that makes the biggest difference.

Do not use The Psychic Circle when someone present is not a part of the activities. That is enough to seriously impair the accuracy of the session. You should never attempt to use The Psychic Circle if anyone present is suffering serious emotional distress, is intoxicated, under the influence of drugs, physically ill, or exhausted.

To obtain the best results, it is necessary that all present approach the session with a mixture of healthy skepticism (not ridicule) and an open mind. If you find yourself in the company of some who consider themselves too "scientific" to take your use of The Psychic Circle seriously, remind them that Thomas H. Huxley, the great British scientist said, "I am too much a skeptic not to believe that anything is possible."

Decide who is going to be using the board. At first, you may find it helpful to work with two people touching the indicator. You can also have just one person at a time try it. You can have as many people touching the indicator as can do so without covering its center. The center of the indicator is where you are going to look to see the answer to your questions.

Make sure that any partner you work with is someone with whom you feel genuinely comfortable. There should be mutual admiration and trust between all sets of partners. In our experience, either two women or a man and a woman make the best partners. To receive information, a passive, receptive attitude is necessary, and to most men the very word "passive" has a strongly negative connotation. This can also present difficulties for "controlling" people of either sex. A relaxed, receptive, patient, and sensitive person will make the best partner.

It is normal to find that you are able to work The Psychic Circle better with some people than with others. The frequencies you tap into will move and communicate differently with each combination.

Asking Your Questions

It is good to have a list of questions prepared before you start your session. You can ask a question or, if you find you have no questions, you can ask for a message that is for you or for someone else. Other questions will suggest themselves when these first ones are answered. The questions should be about subjects that are important to you.

The first few rounds of questions should be those that can be answered simply by one of the many words, numbers, and symbols on the Magical Message Board. This feature of the board's design will enable you to receive meaningful, thought-provoking answers to your questions almost immediately. This will enable you to get a feel for attuning yourself to the energies.

Ask about subjects you really want to know the answer to. Make sure you want the answer given in front of your "psychic circle." Sincere questions will receive sincere answers. Silly questions will, likewise, receive silly answers. Ask your questions in a spirit of investigation.

Though using it is always a lot of fun, The Psychic Circle is not a toy, but a spiritual tool. It is always ready to be consulted for problem solving, decision making, creative inspiration, and wisdom. You can use it for communications with your angelic guardians, spirit guides, and your higher self. Its uses are limited only by your imagination and your beliefs regarding your spiritual nature.

Whatever your spiritual beliefs, we suggest that you begin your sessions with either one or both of the Purification Rituals detailed below. They are a combination of techniques evolved for invoking the most powerful forces of good.

The Purification Rituals can help your sessions by both eliminating anxiety and focusing the energies of all those present. When you all say them together, it helps to reinforce the spiritual bonds between you and to remind you of your common purpose, i.e., the very enjoyable exploration of the highest realms of being. Using the Purification Rituals helps to put you in a Zen-like state where subtle insights can reach your awareness.

The Purification Rituals

You and your partner are about to embark on a journey into yourselves and beyond. As every experienced traveler will tell you, preparation is the key to an enjoyable voyage. We have already mentioned the importance of an attitude of healthy skepticism and an open mind toward whatever information your session with The Psychic Circle will bring forth. It is also important that you bring a positive attitude and a state of relaxed contemplation. Expect The Psychic Circle to work for you.

It's easier than you might think. The method has been used by the seers and sages of many cultures around the world for thousands of years and works equally well today. Not only will putting yourself in a state of relaxed contemplation prepare you for a productive and enjoyable session with The Psychic Circle, but it can help you to better work the board and absorb the information you receive.

The way to reach a state of relaxed contemplation begins with your breath. Unlike any of our other vital functions, our breathing can be placed under our conscious direction and, by so doing, we can control the beating of our heart and calm ourselves down.

Get comfortable and know that your session is going to be a pleasant and rewarding one. Have everyone present join hands. Everyone should take a slow, luxurious, and deep breath. Make the sacred sound, "Amen" or "Om," and stretch the sound out so that it lasts for the duration of your slow exhalation. This is the "sound of many rushing waters" heard by all who contact their divine source through ritual, meditation, and prayer. It is "the comforter," "the faithful and true Amen," and the Word that many religions believe made the creation of the universe possible.

You can use this spiritual sound anytime you need to clear the air and purify your intent. Let it remind you that your ultimate being resides in the world of spirit, far away from the cares and troubles of the day. Repeat this chant three times.

Remove your Psychic Circle Magical Message Board from its box and carefully unfold it on a flat and level surface. When two or more people plan to use it, you may want to set it up on a small table, on the corner of a larger table, or on the floor. In order for your Magical Message Indicator to move freely across the surface of the board, it is important that the board lie perfectly flat.

Each time you use The Psychic Circle, it is a good idea to lightly wipe off the board and indicator with a dry, soft cloth. The object of this is to remove dirt, dust, and anything else that might restrict the movement of The Psychic Circle's Magical Message Indicator as it slides across the board.

Place the indicator in the center of the board, making sure that you can read the words, "The Psychic Circle," which are engraved on its top surface. Your hands are going to be moving around the board. You should sit close enough so you can comfortably reach all of the board's four corners with your fingers resting lightly on the indicator.

The operator(s) should now place two fingertips of one hand on the Magical Message Indicator. They should rest lightly on the outer circle of the indicator, the portion with the words "The Psychic Circle" engraved on it. Do not exert too much pressure on the indicator. The fingertips of the other hand should lightly touch the edge of the board. Some people, especially those who are able to use The Psychic Circle without a partner, prefer to keep two fingertips of each hand on the indicator. There are no hard-and-fast rules.

Following are two different Purification Rituals. They are both based on rituals that have stood the test of time. Use whatever method seems to work best for you. We prefer to use them both. If you want to modify them, or if you want to use a ritual you are more in harmony with, do so. After you have performed your ritual, complete your preparation with the White Light Visualization that follows.

I. The Ritual of the Four Directions

Repeat the following as you breathe slowly and evenly:

I call upon the Four Directions and the Four Elements to open our circle as a consecrated place of love, healing, and spiritual guidance.

May East and Air share their knowledge of all beginnings.

May North and Earth share their knowledge of all stabilizing influences.

May South and Fire share their knowled...

I have an ouija board and the psychic circle gives the same answers the ouija board gives.
The board is colorful and nice.

In my use of the Psychic Circle, I've found that it is one of the safest ways to contact anything from the spiritual realm. The board itself is imbued with it's own types of protection, and anything that you yourself use will almost guarantee that "icky" things won't get through.
It's layout is easy to understand, beautifully designed, and comforting al lat the same time. I definately reccommend the Psychic Circle over the Oiuja board.

When I first bought the Psychic Circle, the indicator didn't move. Tried it with a friend, barely moved. Tried it with 3 different friends together and it finally worked. Maybe it depends on the energy, who knows??? When it did work that time the answers were fairly accurate. I'd recommend it if you are with other people and have the right energy. The only problem is that the board is cut up and then folds which means grooves in the board that are hard to go over with the indicator. It won't move over the grooves, but will go all the way around to point to a letter. I don't have mine anymore, gave it to a friend because it started creeping me out.

I have used the Psychic Circle in the past and had received some interesting answers. I feel that it is best to use this seriously, but to keep an open mind about the answers you may receive. In my experience, I think that if the spirits know you already have an answer in mind to the question you are asking, then they will most likely give you that answer because that is what you are expecting to hear. Case in point, I asked if my boyfriend was cheating on me. I was told "yes" and given the name of the girl he has supposedly cheated on me with, and was told she worked at a local supermarket. When I went there and looked around I did not see anyone by that name and description working there! Anyway I would say listen to what you are told but do take it with a grain of salt, don't take it as the final word. I feel that this is a positive tool, unlike the Ouija. One other anecdote, this board has told me things that came to pass, I was told I would move to FL (I did) and that I would go back to school here (I am going to soon). I had also asked if I would meet my soulmate here in FL and was told "yes", that I would meet him in 2002 when the sun is in Virgo, and that I would meet him at school. I was also told his birthday is 3/11/81. So if anyone wants to email me in the fall and find out if this comes to pass, feel free to write.
All in all I recommend this tool, but I would say it is not for kids. It should be treated with respect!

My opinion is to never take these things lightly. Prayer, rituals, meditation and divination all are very powerful actions, and I think we take for granted sometimes the power their repercussions and results can have. I remember being a teenager playing with a Ouija board and having "freaky things" happen the more I played with it. I viewed it as a toy to communicate with dead rock stars, and when the "freaky things" would happen, it was to the delight of my friends and me.

The thing is though, talking boards aren't toys. If you want to act as though they are, the risk is yours to take. I spent a few years on the fence about getting one, until I finally decided I was mentally and emotionally ready to handle it. I decided to get Psychic Circle. I was intrigued by the subjects covered on the board itself,and also by its mandala shape.

For my first session I centered and grounded myself through meditation. I recited the prayers that came in the pamphlet and began the session. The dial moved with ease and the session was positive, giving me answers to questions that had been troubling me. When I wanted to close the session (by saying "Goodbye"), the dial kept moving between "No" and "Open." It did it three times, and no matter how much I asked it to close the session it would not end it. So finally I asked if the spirit had anything it wanted to tell me. The message it gave was, "Yes. You listen, have faith that you are protected and guided, and that you are acting in harmony with your highest good. You are loved in the spirit realm." It moved me profoundly. Although I hadn't consciously been aware of this, once this message was communicated, I realized how much for the past year I've been second guessing my actions.

This is no ordinary ouija board. The Psychic Circle board is a work of art in itself and the accompanying booklet is written with sensitivity, insight and common sense. The symbols used on the board and the explanatory text are all very positive. This is a friendly board. I have used it innumerable times in the three months I have had it and it has expanded my intuition exponentially and provided me with many answers to questions and insights into problems. Since using it I have found that the synchronicities in my life have increased, I get answers to information I am seeking, impulses which lead to unexpected places, messages in dreams and other forms of communication all of which help me on my spiritual path. I have been warned against using it by people who are fearful of attracting negative energies. It is my belief that you get what you expect and if you are fearful of attracting evil and being overpowered by it then don't use ANY board. It is important to use the purification rituals and have faith in the knowledge that you are protected. Read the booklet through before beginning and use your own wisdom and common sense. It is a tool for helping you to get to know and trust your own inner wisdom and accept self responsibility. Treat it as such and you won't be disappointed.
