The History of the Psychic Appliance - Introduction


The psychic appliance has a history which goes back to the beginnings of civilization. It is believed that historically, the knowledge of the use of these simple psychic tools was protected and only revealed to the privileged initiates. The powers of the "divining rod", the forked stick & the psychic pendulum have been used by most every culture the world has ever known. These devices have, among many other things, chosen tactics in battle, communicated with "supernatural entities" & allowed man to locate innumerable "targets" including people, water and treasure.

As for how they work, we'll leave that to another article. Regardless whether you believe that it's automatism or the intervention of a supernatural entity, the fact remains that these devices do work. They are incredibly powerful, and in the hands of the initiate, have proven their powers time and time again. If you take the time to learn what you'll need to know, and master their use, they will prove to be invaluable to you.

Psychic appliances like the ouija board, the psychograph & the automatic writing planchette are the result of a conscious effort of man to engineer a superior psychic tool, all enabling him to more easily harness the powers the human mind...

This article is an attempt to explain the evolution of the most prominent devices, their use & relations to each other. If you'd like more information, we have several other articles available which look even deeper into each of these traditional psychic appliances. Our web site is loaded with information of interest to the psychic explorer. Please keep us in mind if you'd like to purchase any of these devices. We manufacture some of the most powerful, precision psychic instruments which have ever been constructed.

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 Birth of Automatic Writing:

Since the early days of Spiritualism, automatic writing has been accepted as a way for trance mediums, and sometimes ordinary people, to receive communications from the spirit world. Man has always longed to communicate with the spirits and thanks to the founding of the Spiritualist movement, he now had a method of doing so. The original communications, like those of the Fox Sisters in Hydesville, were little more than knocks and raps that spelled out long and elaborate methods. Most became frustrated by such slow methods of communication and began looking for something faster -- and much more direct. Not long after, the art of "automatic writing" was born.
