Since it's invention over 150 years ago, the planchette has remained the most powerful psychic tool ever conceived.

Planchettes are attributed with having mysterious powers and much has been claimed of them over the years. We feel that the human brain is incredibly powerful and that a planchette simply helps to easily access thoughts and sensations which would otherwise be inaccessible to most...

Historically, automatic writing planchettes have been used to communicate with discarnate spirits, aliens & other supernatural intelligences. Planchettes have proven themselves time and time again assisting with the creation of masterpieces of art, music & literature. The missing has been found. The forgotten recalled. Even today, many psychiatrists and therapists prescribe it's use when exploring "therapeutic automatism" with their patients. The list goes on and on... They are truly remarkable psychic tools...

Although the planchettes younger sibling, the ouija board, retains the honor of being the most popular "board game" ever sold, most have yet to discover the awesome power of this simple yet incredibly powerful psychic tool...

 

"The Planchette Renaissance has Begun..."

 

An automatic writing planchette works just like the common ouija board, although it is not handicapped by being limited to only the letters and numbers as is printed on a ouija board.

While the planchette used with a ouija board can only point to a letter, an automatic writing planchette actually holds a writing device and directly draws onto a surface, most often common paper. In addition to words, users often produce drawings, complex symbols as well as artwork with the use of an automatic writing planchette...

To use the planchette, an individual or a group of people places their fingertips lightly on it's surface. Waiting in silence, it soon begins to move.

At first it may move irradically, most often producing circles and spirograph like patterns. Soon after, you'll feel it coming into "focus." That's where the fun begins...

We offer planchettes meant to be high quality replacements for use with ouija and other communications boards as well as ones engineered for automatic writing and even art.

In addition, we offer bespoke custom made planchettes as well as most other psychic tools and paranormal products...

Planchettes - They're Not Just for Ouija Boards Anymore..


 

Untitled Document

The History of Psychic Tools Psychic tools have a history going back thousands of years. We attempt to explain the evolution of these "devices" as well as show the connections between each of them. From the "pendulum board" used by Pythagoras through the most recent inventions.

Thomas Alva Edison and the Spirit World Thomas Edison is certainly regarded as one of the great minds of the ages. He has over 3,000 patents to his credit, more than anyone in history. Thomas Edison invented, among thousands of other things, the light bulb, the phonograph and many other "miracles of science" which we take foregranted today. Did you know that he spent years of his life building a machine which could communicate with the dead???

The "Ouija Board" - Fact, Fiction & Folklore The "ouija board" has been accused of many things. Some claim it's a direct link to the spirit world. Others would have you think that if you as much as went near one, you'd open the gates to hell and become posessed, just like the little girl in "The Exorcist..." We explore the FACTS and let the reader judge for themselves...

Do Spirits Write Books??? Via automatism and seances, many books have been published which credit supernatural entities with the authorship. We offer a synopsis of several well known, as well as nearly completely obscure books. We begin with discussing the "Seth Books", certainly the most famous of the lot. We also explore another book by well-resepected authors. In their book, they report to have communicated with famous "ghosts" including George Washington. Although this book is from 1882, they have some interesting things to report from entities living on Mars...

The Truth About Automatic Writing Automatic Writing is a powerful ability which most of us have yet to explore. We examine the evidence on hand and attempt to explain this phenomenon as well as potentials which are hardly explored.

Ouija Boards in the Movies... Psychic tools such as the "ouija board" have made their way into the spotlight many times. We reminisce about some of our favorites.

The Ideomotor Effect

The ideomotor effect refers to the influence of suggestion on involuntary and unconscious motor behavior. The term "ideomotor action" was coined by William B. Carpenter in 1852 in his explanation for the movements of rods and pendulums by dowsers, and some table turning or lifting by spirit mediums (the ones that weren't accomplished by cheating). Carpenter argued that muscular movement can be initiated by the mind independently of volition or emotions. We may not be aware of it, but suggestions can be made to the mind by others or by observations. Those suggestions can influence the mind and affect motor behavior.

Scientific tests by American psychologist William James, French chemist Michel Chevreul, English scientist Michael Faraday, and American psychologist Ray Hyman have demonstrated that many phenomena attributed to spiritual or paranormal forces, or to mysterious "energies," are actually due to ideomotor action. Furthermore, these tests demonstrate that "honest, intelligent people can unconsciously engage in muscular activity that is consistent with their expectations" (Hyman 1999). They also show that suggestions that can guide behavior can be given by subtle clues (Hyman 1977).

The movement of pointers on Ouija boards, of a facilitator's hands in facilitated communication, of hands and arms in applied kinesiology, and of some behaviors attributed to hypnotic suggestion, are due to ideomotor action. Ray Hyman (1999) has demonstrated the seductive influence of ideomotor action on medical quackery, where it has produced such appliances as the "Toftness Radiation Detector" (used by chiropractors) and "black boxes" used in medical radiesthesia and radionics (popular with naturopaths to harness "energy" used in diagnosis and healing.) Hyman also argues that such things as Qi Gong and "pulse diagnosis," popular in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine as practiced by Deepak Chopra, are best explained in terms of ideomotor action and require no supposition of mysterious energies such as chi.
