Essex-based Psychic Stacey Woolgar shares her fascinating encounters using spirit boards and table tipping
My name is Stacey and I am a Psychic Medium and Paranormal Investigator. Spiritual work has been my life since I can remember, and throughout my journey I have had some amazing mentors and met some wonderful people with gifts like mine. I have seen spirits since I was a toddler and began intentionally developing this gift from the age of 14. For over 18 years I have done readings, paranormal investigations, held seances and hosted psychic parties, using tools such as oracle cards, ‘ghost hunting’ devices, tipping tables and spirit boards.
Create your space
Now at age 37, and despite a full-time job, family and mum duties, I still seize every opportunity in my waking day to commune with Spirit. I love doing readings and giving people peace of mind and guidance, especially communicating messages from loved ones that have passed over. My work has guided me both in my professional and personal life, with the beauty of this path being that you never stop learning.
Communicate and listen
My favourite psychic work, though, has to be paranormal investigations and psychic parties! I remember one investigation I was doing at a haunted hotel, and we got the most amazing EVP (electronic voice phenomenon), with a man in spirit’s voice saying, “you need to move.” Ten seconds later, someone in the other group came bursting through the doorway, knocking over two people in our group! The gentleman we were communicating with obviously knew we would be in the way. What’s so great about using EVP devices is that other people get to hear it for themselves, so it isn’t just me relaying messages that I receive. I’ve also managed to capture some amazing photos of spirit and spirit energy, connecting with the souls that still reside in the locations I have been.
Set your boundaries
Another tool I enjoy using is a spirit board or as it’s more commonly known, a Ouija board. This is such a taboo tool and is greatly feared as evil, but having done them for many years, I find them to be a powerful tool and a great way to communicate with spirit. Like oracle cards, pendulums and crystals, a spirit board is just a tool for psychic work. Of course, though, like any tool, the safety depends on how appropriately it is handled, just like how a chainsaw can be dangerous if misused! I have rules when doing any psychic work, and that goes for all participants too. The most important rule that I am very strict with is do not mix your spirits! Essentially, no alcohol is to be consumed before, or during the activity. This includes any other state-altering drug. I would always advise working with a professional medium or spiritual worker when using a spirit board, and if you enjoy it, seek training from someone who is experienced with them.
Receive clarity through spirit boards
One of the best experiences I had with a board was at a psychic party. One of the guests had several readings with various mediums throughout the years, but the one person she was desperate to hear from had never come through. On this particular evening, the energy was buzzing, and so many spirits of loved ones had been coming through for people. At the last minute, the planchette moved over to this lady, almost falling into her lap. When we placed the planchette back on the board, it spelt “I am here sugar puff, always.” I watched this lady put her hand to her face in disbelief as she began to cry and smile. This was her nickname that her dad called her – no one in the group knew this. She later told me this message was all she ever needed! This is why I truly love what I do.
Tip the table
A tool not many people use is a tipping table. These seem to be an underrated one and is best used in places that have a lot of spirit energy. It must be a folding table that is used for this type of work as it will not work with your standard bulk dining table. How this method works is that everyone places their index finger on the tabletop; just a light touch is all that is needed. You ask spirit ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions and they answer by rocking the table. For me, the rocking gets more intense when the answer is ‘yes’, and stops suddenly when the answer is ‘no’. Like spirit boards, tipping tables are a great tool to experience and feel spirit energy with, and spirit love them as much as we do!
Raise your vibration and discover your gift
Ultimately, spirits love positive energy; laughter, singing and speaking positive words. It helps to raise vibrations that spirit use as a battery. A soul in one of the pubs we investigated (who proved to be a bit of a show-off) had the table tipping so well that it ended up on one leg and spun about 90 degrees! I was so impressed with the vibration of the group and how positive and excited people were, it really makes the difference. While some days life takes more priority, I still dedicate at least 30 minutes a day to connect with my guides and loved ones. Even if it’s on a dog walk, in the shower, or cleaning the house. I’m grateful of this ability and love sharing this part of me with others, and I especially enjoy helping people to discover their own unique gifts. What will you discover using these sacred spirit tools?
