According to some Pagan beliefs, the roots of the tree of The Tree of Life extend in to the spirit world, so the tree serves as a pathway for communication with the dead. This octagonal Tree Of Life Ouija board, designed by Lisa Parker, comes with a thick piece of circular glass that covers the board, providing an ultra smooth planchette surface. The planchette has a hole in the center for selecting individual letters, words or numbers. The board is purportedly protected from evil by the power of the pentacle and has an inscription on the underside explaining how to take further protective measures to guard against evil. It measures about 13 inches by 13 inches. This Tree Of Life talking board makes a great gift for friends.
