Using an Ouija board in general has that risk but at the same time its said to be a useful tool if the risk doesn't come?
I think what you might have been trying to say is useful tools come with risk, referring to the Ouija Board as a useful tool because of it being risky.
However, I would think a better tool to use than an Ouija Board to communicate with spirits would be your mind after having developed it to a point to where you can. In trying to understand why communication sometimes comes in the form of pictures, and symbols, I have read that it is sometimes because a picture is worth a thousand words, and sometimes there is no way to more succinctly convey a message. Whereas with an Ouija Board, if we were to use the analogy of online chat, I would think it'd be like trying to chat with someone that didn't know how to type at all, and had to peck at each key on the keyboard to form words, which would be very slow vs. someone that could type lightning fast. I suppose either one could work for the purpose of communication, but one isn't what I would think of as being efficient as the other.
But back to the main question, I'd have to agree with Likes2Read. It would be best to develop abilities to the point where an Ouija Board wasn't necessary to use, so that if you choose to use it anyway, you could at least see what you're up against if you were to find yourself in a situation where you attracted an unfriendly, or hostile spirit.
