Words of advice: no matter how much of a skeptic you are, don’t mess with these things for giggles.
Probably the most dangerous method. It’s when you have a planchette and a board like this
You ask a question and a spirit moves the planchette for you, directing to certain letters to tell you information. The reason it’s dangerous, is because you don’t know who you are opening up to. It could be a hideous demon pretending to be your long gone grandma.
It’s when you clear your mind, and kind of open up your arm to be controlled by sprits. The writing is not your own but the spirits.

Master it first and clear your mind and allow communication. Be patient. According to someone who tried it this way “their thoughts enter hers and she feels a warm and buzzing sensation”
This one I got from a book by Raymond Moody, the guy who coined the term near death experience.
Those who tried it the correct way had an 80% chance of actually seeing the full fledged version of the dead person they wanted to talk to.
I think it’s pretty safe too, if you don’t have any negative thoughts (example: oh no what if I accidentally conjure up a demon)

You take a small crystal attach it to a necklace chain, and swing it. You ask a question and the direction of the swing, how fast it swings, which way it is swinging is supposed to tell you the answer to your question.
