How to get rid of demon Zozo [Ouija emergency]

You started playing around with your new Ouija board without knowing the rules. Suddenly the planchette begins counting down and moving from corner to corner. You have attracted the demon Zozo, and now he might have attached to the board.

Get rid of demon Zozo by cleansing yourself, the board, and the area with blue sage. If you know you are dealing with demon Zozo, command him to leaveIf you suspect Zozo has attached to you or an object, contact a demonologist or exorcist to help remove the bond with the help of an exorcism. 

The most important thing is never to attract the demon Zozo (also known as Pazuzu, Zaza, MaMa, Oz, Zo, Zo, Za, or Alcaba). But if something goes wrong, there are things you need to know. Acting fast is very important as a demonic attachment can lead to full possession down the line.

Action steps if Zozo appears

The demon Zozo, or Pazuzu, as he is also commonly known, often attacks users of the Ouija. Zozo is an Assyrian and Babylonian demon that haunts households. Zozo is known for sending sickness, torment, and agony to the victims he haunts.

As a demon, he has the power to possess, if not dispelled. As demons don’t have names, he has many different names. This is important to know. Even if he doesn’t spell out the name Zozo, you can be dealing with him. These are some of the names that could refer to him (ScarenormalOpens in a new tab. and MolopediaOpens in a new tab.):

  • Pazuzu
  • Zaza
  • MaMa
  • Oz
  • Zo
  • Za
  • Alcaba
  • Aamon
  • Abaddon
  • Abezethibou
  • Abraxas
  • Abyzou
  • Adramelech
  • Aeshma
  • Agaliarept

If you want to learn more about the different names that Zozo refers to, you can check the book by Manuel A. Malet, Infernal Dictionary (1906)

If you are familiar with the classic supernatural horror movie “the ExorcistOpens in a new tab.” from 1973, the demon possessing Regan is the infamous Zozo.

Stop communicating at once if you believe you might have encountered Zozo. Zozo often intimidates his victims to make them forget how to properly close the Ouija board.

If the Ouija board is not closed correctly, Zozo has his chance to attach to the board and finally – you.

Below you find action steps you can take if you believe you have encountered Zozo.

Say goodbye for good

If you suspect that you have come in contact with Zozo, you need to stop communicating at once. Never summon Zozo (or other demons, for that matter), as it is hazardous. Many are curious about the demonic and want to experience it. But believe me, it is better to watch a horror movie like the Exorcist than encounter them in real life.

Close the Ouija session by placing the planchette on “goodbye.” You must close the session correctly. When closing the session, entities can’t communicate with you anymore. You have the power, even if the demonic want you to believe otherwise.

If you are unsure how to close a Ouija session, read the article below.

An effective way to get rid of negative and demonic presences is by smudging the area, yourself, and the board. If you believe you have come in contact with the wicked it is a vital part of cutting the connection.

The most effective herb is blue sageOpens in a new tab. (also referred to as salvia officinalis, sacred sage, or desert sage). White sage is also commonly used in cleansing rituals. The blue and white sage are very much alike but have slight differences. Blue sage trumps the white when it comes to dispelling the demonic. It is thought that the negative ions in the blue sage are very uncomfortable for the wicked.

Ban Zozo from further communications

If you suspect you have come in contact with demon Zozo, confront him by name and dispel him. By outing his name and forbidding him of any connection or attachments, Zozo has no other option than to leave. The demonic can only attach if we allow them to. This is why they try to weaken you into compliance.

There are different opinions about the outing or saying the name of the demonic. Some say it is the worst thing you can do, others that it is necessary to make a stubborn attachment be broken.

Most of the advice about not saying the name of the demonic entity targets the summoning phase, not when the interaction is already underway. You should never summon a demon, but when you are faced with one, the rules change. If you know the name of the demon, you have the upper hand.

The demonic is not as strong as you might think. They can only attack you if you allow them to. By calling out their name and stating that you do not let them talk through the board, be in contact with you, or attach to the space they are forced to comply.

The Key is the intent and a rigid belief you have the power over the situation. You have to believe with all your heart that you can break all connections and force them to return wherever they came from.

The power of dispelling a demon by name makes them prone to lie about their name. You can always revert to other tactics if you believe the demon is tricking you. State that you only allow communications with spirits of the light and your highest good.

How you say this is not important, as long as you mean what you say. Of course, there are targeted prayers for this, but they are not always needed.

If you want to use a religious prayer, you can use Psalm 23. This psalm is often used when dispelling the demonic.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

King James Version


If you suspect that demon Zozo has attached, oppressed, or possessed a person (or yourself for that matter) – there is no time to waste. When the demonic has dug its claws into its victim, you should always consult with a professional demonologist or exorcist.

Exorcism can be performed by the Church; as priests, clergy, or adepts. An exorcism can also be performed by laypersons. A famous example is Ed WarrenOpens in a new tab.. He was not a priest, but highly skilled at his craft.

Tips and advice

Regarding the demonic, you should always contact a professional if you suspect you might be under demonic attack. Not all symptoms of demonic attacks are caused by demons, though. It is always great to have a consultation with a professional health care provider.

Suppose you, after your consultation, still think your symptoms might be caused by the demonic. In that case, it is recommended that you seek help from a professional in the paranormal, a psychic medium (to perform a scan), or the church.

As demons are known to lie and lure, you should never believe a word they say. As living persons, we have free will. We are in charge if we don’t give it away. Whatever you do, you must believe you have the upper hand and hold on to your free will.
