The Epic of Gilgamesh is not only one of my favorite stories of all time, it is perhaps one of the most important stories as well.  While most of you will know of the story I will briefly discuss the theme for those of you that are unfamiliar.  Firstly, it is the oldest epic poem discovered to date.  It predates the perhaps more well-known epic tales of Homer: The Illiad and the Odyssey, by 1500 years.  The Epic of Gilgamesh is about the semi-mythical 5th King of Uruk (in modern day Iraq) and his 126 year reign.  Throughout the tale we follow Gilgamesh from an egotistical and rather deviant King to a philosophical man searching for the meaning of life.  While Gilgamesh’s purported 126 year reign as King can certainly be accepted as “paranormal”, there are other mysterious people and events that have sparked debate.  For example, Gilgamesh’s once rival turned friend and traveling companion, Enkidu, is described as what can easily be construed as a Sasquatch.  A “wild man”, said to be created by the Goddess Aruru, Enkidu was said to be created as 1/3 human and 2/3 beast-a claim that perhaps could be attributed to a Sasquatch.  He is created as an exact mirror of Gilgamesh, who is described as 1/3 human and 2/3 God.  Not surprisingly, the two battle to a draw and, having gained the other’s respect, become best of friends.  Upon *spoiler alert* Enkidu’s death, a downtrodden Gilgamesh begins questioning the meaning of life and the importance of man’s accomplishments if they are all to be for naught because of death.

The Epic of Gilgamesh is a tale that was originally told in Akkadian, a Mesopotamian language dating from about 2800 B.C.E. to 100 C.E., but written in Cuneiform on clay tablets that were scattered throughout the area, and possibly the world, millennia ago.  Because of this we have never been able to fully read the story, but instead are given a partial tale where the reader is asked to fill in the blanks.  It was originally discovered in 1853 in Ninevah (modern day Iraq) and has remained largely untouched since then.  That is until about 4 weeks ago when the Sulaymaniyah Museum in the Kurdistan region of Iraq announced that they had found a tablet with 20 new lines to the poem.  The museum disclosed that it had been purchased, along with about 80-90 other tablets unrelated to the Epic of Gilgamesh, from a shady character that had probably acquired them during the looting of Baghdad that took place in 2011 after Saddam Hussein’s capture.  While 4 years have passed since its acquisition, it’s important to note that authenticity and translation had to be determined before making a momentous announcement like this.  It is also important to note that what came to be known as the “flood tablet”, a discussion of which will take place shortly, took 20 years to decipher by a self-educated man named George Smith while sitting in a British Museum.  Another accomplishment of note here is that Cuneiform is not so much a language as it is an alphabet.  An alphabet with no punctuation or paragraph structure…oh, and, of course, there is that little problem of erosion as well.  Any person tasked with the decipherment of such a tablet has a mighty task in front of them indeed.

While the Epic of Gilgamesh has some possible paranormal angles in it, as we discussed the Enkidu/Sasquatch connection and the extended life of the 1/3 human 2/3 God that is Gilgamesh, it has other topics that spark quite a bit of controversy in and of itself.  Namely the aforementioned “flood tablet”.  As you can probably imagine, this tablet tells about a…well….flood, but not just any flood-THE flood.  The great flood of Christian faith with Noah and his ark, is an apparent “rip off” of this Babylonian/Sumerian story that takes place thousands of years before the Bible.  While it seems clear that there was a great flood in times past, there is evidence to prove this that has been collected scientifically for decades, the question seems to be: When?  In the flood myth of Gilgamesh’s time there even includes an ark built by one man, Utnapishtim.  In this story the Gods were angry at mankind and the God Ea warned Utnapishtim of their intentions.  After this warning he built an enormous boat just before the rains began.  It rained for many days but when the rain stopped Utnapishtim’s boat crashed into a mountain where he released a dove, a swallow, and a raven to find land.  Sound familiar?

There has also been some controversy as to whether Gilgamesh ever existed.  His father is known to be the Priest-King Lugalbanda, who was featured in 2 poems recorded earlier than the Epic of Gilgamesh, who was famed for his magical abilities.  His mother is said to be the Goddess Ninsun who is the holy mother and great queen.  Having a father that is renowned for his magical abilities and a mother that is said to be a goddess would certainly explain some of Gilgamesh’s more “unusual” traits.  However it would also indicate that perhaps Gilgamesh is nothing more than a myth, a story told throughout generations to teach a lesson.  However, there are a few indications that perhaps this is not the case.  Firstly, Gilgamesh’s name appears on the Sumerian Kings list and in fact records his reign as being 126 years long.  Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, a German led expedition in 2003 found what could perhaps be the tomb of the legendary King.  While they are still hesitant to announce that it is in fact Gilgamesh, the tomb found is eerily similar to that described in the Epic.  The tomb, found just outside a long forgotten city in the Iraqi desert, was found under the former flow route of the Euphrates River, where Gilgamesh was said to be buried when the waters receded.  For more on the discovery of the tomb please go to: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/2982891.stm

Whether you believe Gilgamesh to be a real man, hero, King, or extraterrestrial one thing is clear, The Epic of Gilgamesh is a story that carries wonder and intrigue for thousands of years.  Any of you who have not read this story should check out: http://www.aina.org/books/eog/eog.pdf  or if you are even more curious you can listen to it read in its original tongue at: http://www.openculture.com/2015/10/hear-the-epic-of-gilgamesh-read-in-the-original-akkadian-language.html Gilgamesh holds lion

Hello Grimericans! I know the title of this post probably caught your attention. My original title was going to be, “The Vampire Watermelons of Gypsy Lore!” but it being October and all, I thought pumpkins was a better choice and ‘Romani’ is more P.C. than gypsy. In fact, I hope that me using the word hasn’t offended any of my readers. But back to the subject at hand: Vampire pumpkins and yes, watermelons. I’m not just making this up for a catchy title. I’m not positive if these beliefs still hold sway in the Roma culture today, but they certainly did at one point. Now the Romani culture is steeped in supernatural lore and superstitions that both give and take from the many surrounding cultures that they cohabitate with. But the lore I am going to cover in this post is focused out of the Balkans including vampire legend from Romania, Hungary and Slavic lands. This area has a large array of supernatural beliefs and superstitions. Many of those which include death, dying and the dead, and yes… the undead.

 

Researching this topic, one thing became very clear to me. Just about ANYTHING can either be a sign of or the cause of someone becoming a blood sucker. People who were particularly horrid looking could be a vampire. Those who were missing fingers or had appendages similar to those of an animal such as a tail were considered vampires. As with most cultures, there was a set of rituals that were to be performed after the death of a person and the neglect of these rituals could cause someone to become a vampire. Such as not burning the deceased possessions and keeping them or giving them away instead could cause the dead to rise. People who had a violent death, committed suicide or death resulting from an accident could cause the fangy transformation. Those who went astray from or were excommunicated from the church could be a vampire.  Children conceived on certain days or out of wedlock could become a vamp in the afterlife. Children born with teeth were believed to become vampires after death. Female vampires were believed to be able to return to their normal lives and basically exhaust their husband to death, much like the succubus of lore. Those who passed before being baptized were also condemned. Now with so many ways of becoming the undead, it’s not a huge surprise that other living creatures such as horses, sheep, snakes and even man’s best friend could join the ranks of the damned. There are even ways of inanimate objects can gain a lust for blood. Things like leaving a latch unlatched for too long can result in the latch developing a thirst for the red life force. If, for instance, your name is Darren Grimes and live in Alberta, Canada, and you give me a synchro score less than a seven, you will most definitely become a vampire. Certain agricultural tools such as the wooden rods used for binding sheaves of wheat. “… if such a rod, used for tying up a sheath by making a knotted loop on its narrower end and thrusting the other end through it, remains undone for three years, becomes a vampire.” So it’s not really a stretch to think that a belief that things like plants can gain this unholy thirst.

No, no… The OTHER unholy thirst…

 

When I first came across this lore, it seems to only be referenced by one source in scholarship. One source that is quoted over and over. And whilst I would love to not repeat it here, it being the only source, I would be remiss if I didn’t include it here. It is from the Journal of Gypsy Lore Society and is written by Tatomir Vukanović, who was, from what I could ascertain from the ONLY source that I could find on the interwebs, the always reliable Wikipedia (I did find a few others but they all seemed to be copied and pasted from Wikipedia), a Serbian born “prominent historian and ethnologist of the Balkans region of south-eastern Europe” who focused primarily on “the history, folklore and culture of the Serb and Roma (Gypsy) inhabitants of Yugoslavia in general and the southern province of Kosovo in particular.” In all references about the entry into the Journal of Gypsy Lore Society, which was a four part piece and can be found here, they were said to be written several years after his journeys through Serbia, which I would find odd since he was born there. But before I go off on a tangent, here is what is written:

 

The belief in vampires of plant origin occurs among Gs. [Gypsies] who belong to the Mosl. faith in KM [Kosovo-Metohija]. According to them there are only two plants which are regarded as likely to turn into vampires: pumpkins of every kind and water-melons. And the change takes place when they are ‘fighting one another.’ In Podrima and Prizrenski Podgor they consider this transformation occurs if these ground fruit have been kept for more than ten days: then the gathered pumpkins stir all by themselves and make a sound like ‘brrrl, brrrl, brrrl!’ and begin to shake themselves. It is also believed that sometimes a trace of blood can be seen on the pumpkin, and the Gs. then say it has become a vampire. These pumpkins and melons go round the houses, stables, and rooms at night, all by themselves, and do harm to people. But it is thought that they cannot do great damage to folk, so people are not very afraid of this kind of vampire. Among the Mosl. Gs. in the village of Pirani (also in Podrima) it is believed that if pumpkins are kept after Christmas they turn into vampires, while the Lešani Gs. think that this phenomenon occurs if a pumpkin used as a syphon, when ripe and dry, stays unopened for three years. Vampires of ground fruit origin are believed to have the same shape and appearance as the original plant.

 

Another cause for the change, I found, is if a melon is kept after Christmas for x number of days. And while these vampires aren’t as ferocious as some, it’s still supernatural none the less. It’s important to understand that a “vampire” wasn’t considered what we see in movies and books today. A vampire was an evil spirit that would take up residence in a body or object and therefore wasn’t the subject in question before being commandeered. In this context, it is kind of easy to see how these unholy invaders would try to take up space anywhere that was available, and that includes plants. And considering the rampant view of these transient evil spirts, it probably wouldn’t have taken much for this belief to arise. The aforementioned “trace of blood” from Vukanović’s excerpt, is naturally discoloration that happens, as it would seem, when the fruit of vegetables would become too ripe. But try as I might, I couldn’t find what causes them specifically.

Apparently the only picture on the internet of this occurrence.

 

 

So have you read enough to convince you to keep a more wary eye on your fruits and vegetables? Myself, personally, I would throw a pumpkin and a watermelon in the ring together and start an underground edible Fight Club. Or sell the little boogers as pets. I think there’s real potential in the idea and a sound business opportunity; but I digest. What are your thoughts about vampire food? Hell, what are your thoughts on inanimate object vampires?  Leave your thoughts in the comments section below. That’s it for me Grimerica. Stay classy.

Might there be a link between chemtrails and carbon nanotubes?
Reference news article about nanotubes available at New Scientist.
Please read the above article first! Okay, I found this article interesting and while it does not mention chemtrails at all it seems there are some unanswered questions about these “found” nanotubes. Let’s take this piece by piece.

“Carbon nanotubes have turned up in the lungs of children living in Paris – the first time they have been detected in humans.”

My first question here is have they ever tried detecting them in humans in the past? It seems this is presented as an accidental discovery. Scientists have studied them by injecting them into mice with seemingly negative side-effects.

“James Bonner at North Carolina State University in Raleigh says the detection of nanotubes should be treated with caution, as other studies of air pollution over the years have failed to find them. “In my opinion, there is a great deal of uncertainty as to what these structures really are, especially the material in the lung cells from patients,” he says.”

Quite interesting here as the article implies that they know exactly what these structures are, stating how great they are in “computing, clothing and healthcare technology”. Supposedly, while these carbon nanotubes have been found in dust and car exhaust, the quote above says that in previous air pollution studies over the years they haven’t been found. Is this not contradictory? Over what years have these referred “air pollution studies” been conducted? From what I have found, carbon nanotubes were first created in the early 1950’s by Russian scientists and were actually re-discovered by Japanese scientists in 1991. Nowhere have I read that these are naturally occurring substances. So, my thinking takes me to 1991 and the proliferation of chemtrails since then and especially in the last ten years. I suppose if we test a more general slice of the population and not just asthmatic children we will find that the CNTs are much more widespread. Morgellons disease has been linked to nanoparticulates falling from chemtrail spraying so maybe the CNTs are the catalyst as they are taken into the lungs and root themselves there. They could also create a microscopic infrastructure of sorts for other nefarious black-op type endeavors like allowing the flow of certain frequencies to latch onto or vibrate within the nanotubes causing any number of symptoms from voice-to-skull to virtually creating the appearance of any number of diseases. I mean we could really speculate on the dark potential of this technology. It’s crazy. Let’s move on to the last point of the article I wanted to make.

“If we are breathing in nanotubes, it’s probably nothing new and fossil fuels are a likely source, he says. “I guess we’ve been breathing them for a very long time. But it needs more work, for sure.”

And there you have the last damning statement to tie it into “man-made climate change” as well as totally ignoring the documentation of the synthetic origin of CNTs. My gut feeling is that CNTs and chemtrails are linked together. What we need is someone that studies the chemical makeup of chemtrails and the air samples within those to be made aware of carbon nanotubes and how to look for them and identify them.
What’s your opinion on this possible connection? Please comment below!
Also, wanted to let everyone know that I just updated the Chemtrail Gallery with new photos and a slightly improved layout so go look at it!

Interview Starts 26:06
 
Paul Devereux is a researcher, presenter, artist, broadcaster and author of many things that interest us in
Grimerica. Hist latest books are Sacred Geography and Lucid Dreaming – How to Access your Inner Virtual Realities.
 
Paul’s main interest has been archeoacoustics, ancient lifeways and earth mysteries. He is also founding co-editor (with Neil Mortimer) of Time & Mind, a multidisciplinary peer reviewed journal covering topics glossed over or ignored by traditional journals in the realm of “earth mysteries” and the various “archeo” subjects.
 
We have a great chat with Paul about archeoacoustics, primary resonance, ancient civilizations, the physicality of sound waves, new age nonsense and lucid dreaming among many other topics.
 
Below is a quick summary of some of the projects Paul has been working on.
 
The overall aim of the Landscape and Perception project is to carry out a forensic audiovisual re-examination of Preseli, Avebury and Stonehenge in an attempt to return to the primary sensory status of prehistoric man, with a view to redefining landscape art and ‘cleansing the windows of perception’ for our digital times.
 
The Dragon Project was founded in 1977 (a Trust from 1988), to explore rumours about the power and properties of ancient, especially prehistoric, “sacred” places and monuments.
 

  • The study of physical, measurable energies at sites

  • The archaeology and anthropology of consciousness

  • Exploration of human biophysical and mental reactions and interactions at sites

  • Multi-sensory properties of sites, especially acoustical properties (archaeoacoustics)

The Legendary Lee Speigle recently wrote on Huff Post about all the objects people think they see on Mars. Putting aside all debate on the reality of these objects I was struck particularly by a “Martian God Statue” image that was “enhanced” in a YouTube video by Paranormal Crucible

NASA’s photo on the left, Paranormal Crucible’s artistic rendering on the right.

Below, my artistic rendering

marsendorf2

To me the NASA photo looks much more like The Venus of Willendorf

than a greco-roman statue. 

Is it me? Do I just see boobies everywhere? The short answer is yes.

GMO-sm1

The past few months have been a time of serious transition for my family and me. We stand on the verge of following dreams that we’ve carefully thought over and have endlessly imagined. In the midst of all this I decided to launch a blog, upon which I have hopes of building something meaningful – a platform to disperse opinions, ideas, research, etc. I can easily talk the talk of our underground community in all matters of conspiracy subjects, ufo and paranormal research, psychedelics, and every aspect and theory one can throw under that umbrella. One particular subject, though, has weighed on me with some level of guilt, or rather, has me personally distraught. I feel a sense of responsibility to myself, my family, and to anyone who might visit my corner of the internet. What I’m talking about is our food and water, without which I wouldn’t be talking at all. I have long been aware of the blatant manipulation of these vital resources by a number of institutions and corporations and I think anyone who visits Altrusian Grace will most likely be aware of this already. There is genetic corruption of what nature has made perfect, the never ending creation and introduction of toxic chemicals into the over-processed food of our restaurants and grocery chains, the poisoning of our water both intentional and unintentional through fluoride dumping, landfills piled high with discarded pharmaceutical drugs draining into the ground, and even such things as the mining of uranium upon native lands. Check out some of these recent articles:

 

One can almost certainly not escape this madness. We become what eat and drink and I propose that we have yet to see this transformation in all its sickening glory. The substances that go into our bodies are of utmost importance. This is the first step of revolution and it starts from within yourself. This is how I’ve decided to proceed and do more than just talk the talk. I’m going to practice what I preach here and let clean food and water be my medicine, my foundation upon which my mind and body grow strong. No more will I play willfully ignorant to the fact that our sovereign being is constantly under attack by powers that wish to slow-kill us, breed us as disease-ridden and infertile, and ultimately lay claim to the title of gods. Here, with me making this pledge to treat my body with the respect it deserves, the revolution begins. I challenge anyone reading this to do the same and take back what should be our natural right in the first place. So what exactly am I doing? I am now fully four weeks in to eating a 90-95% organic, GMO-free diet. I got fed up with feeling like shit after always eating shit and I can tell you they’ve made it hard for the average person to make the switch: proliferation of fast food, cheap and low cost garbage lines the store shelves, and it’s all so very convenient! And why does eating better always cost more? One would think that food with less chemicals and processed ingredients would cost less, requires less energy to produce. And why should we pay more to prevent cancer or degrade our DNA? I’m not perfect by a long shot as I’m still learning this new lifestyle, tweaking it and perfecting it. I am being acquainted with a plethora of new food companies and brands and figuring out what tastes good and what I like in the health food arena. It’s quite ironic that I was a chef for almost 20 years and I come to find out that I know nothing. This path, it all starts with developing a simple knowledge base centered around the labeling of food. From there I went fully on the offense with my grocery purchasing. What I would like to do is try and break this down into bullet points for those who might be interested in my approach and who might be looking for a way to start a new lifestyle.

  • Stop buying everything you normally buy at the grocery store! Chances are the majority of food you have is not entirely good for you. This sounds easy to do but habits are hard to break. We are literally addicted to much of this junk.
  • Take some time to spend a couple hours at a grocery store. If you don’t have a Whole Foods, Trader Joe, or Outpost Natural Foods near you then you’ll probably have to jump between a few of the other “normal” chains. I currently don’t have any of the natural food stores near me so I tend to shop between Woodmans, Aldi, Target, and Pick N Save in order to find my desired items. The reason you want to initially set aside a block of time is so you can read labels and compare brands. It sounds boring and tedious but if you do the legwork now, your shopping will be easier later.
  • Know the differences between Organic and Non-GMO labels. My first choice in a product will have both a USDA organic label AND a Non-GMO Verified Project label. These are easy to spot although sometimes they are printed on the back or sides of a package. Be aware however that one doesn’t always mean the other. USDA organic doesn’t mean it won’t contain GMO. Also, a product that states “made with organic ingredients” only means that a minimum of 70% needs to actually be organic. This is when you need to dive a little deeper into the ingredient label to determine the possible harmful chemicals used. You should also become familiar with the PLU number on produce as this can tell you whether the fruit or vegetable has been grown organically, traditionally, or is genetically modified. You can view a quick guide to PLU numbers HERE.
  • Get familiar with some of the terms listed in a product’s ingredients. Look at some of the things you already have in your pantry and check them out online. You may find some interesting bits of info, some of which might just disgust you enough to toss it in the trash or even have a crime scene cleanup crew dispose of it. For example, L-cysteine, an amino acid often synthesized from human hair, duck feathers, and hog hair, is found in highly processed bakery goods. Here is a recent video from Ryan Gable of The Secret Teachings about ascorbic acid (what many companies like to call vitamin C) and citric acid:
  • Sometimes you just can’t win. Once in awhile when I’m looking for a certain item – for example the natural sweetener stevia – I’ll see four or five different brands all with different combinations of organic/non-GMO/ingredient lists but none of them meet all of my criteria. In a case such as this it might be best to just move on and do without it, but if you absolutely need it then go with lesser of all the evils. You’ll at least have the satisfaction that what you’re consuming is a step above the crap you have eaten before.

Like I stated previously, this is a work in progress. I’ve encountered difficulty in finding items I am totally okay with eating such as bread. Bread is currently my nemesis, especially since I don’t buy into the gluten-free craze. My opinion on gluten allergies and whatnot is that these are caused by genetically modified wheat and the pesticides used on the crops. Most of these products are just as bad as the rest of the processed food slop and I think many people pick gluten-free items thinking they are healthier in some manner. Nobody had gluten allergies a couple decades ago, so don’t fall for that label. Anyways, I’m working hard on this eating healthy thing now so it’s no longer an issue for me later on. I am incorporating more raw foods into my diet and more organic grains and just out of coincidence by what I’ve chosen to eat I’ve become vegetarian. I found that I had more than enough enjoyable food that tasted great that I didn’t even get around to thinking about meat. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still down with eating a great free-range, antibiotic-free, non-GMO piece of chicken but right now I have no need or desire. Overall, there is a noticeable difference in my feeling of well-being and it’s incredible. To actually FEEL healthy just based on what you eat – what a concept! Next up I’m tackling our family’s water situation.

I’d like to give a big shout out to Ryan Gable of TheSecretTeachings.info for all the hard work he’s done in researching and getting the word out about our food. He’s been the straw that broke this stubborn camel’s back simply by being real, honest, and someone who actually lives what he talks about. I have the highest level of respect for that.

So, until I get these new chemtrail photos uploaded, please think about what you shove in your mouth. There’s a revolution about to begin…

When I recognized my synesthesia I was startled, simultaneously realizing that I already knew I had it. A few weeks ago I was Skyping with Red Pill Junkie and the subject of mandalas came up, a sort of visual geometric symbol that people report seeing often within a spiritual context. As with many realizations I have this one popped up while deep in thought and immersed in a hot shower. With hot water running on my scalp and my eyes closed I tried to envision a mandala in the fluctuating patterns of colors that naturally pervade my vision when my eyes are closed. I didn’t see mandalas just a light blue washed denim color pattern in my vision. I kept watching the colors and I turned the water temperature up hotter as I was getting cold and got a sudden and very distinct feeling ‘this feels like purple’. I realized that the color pattern I was now seeing was a blotchy pattern of purple. I began cycling the temperature hot to cold and back again to see if the color patterns changed, to my delight they did. They shifted to a dark green puddle like pattern and then to a sky blue stripish puddle.With scalding heat a pale blue pattern of fast blizzard snow turned to a blinding hot white color.

Knowing that my perception of heat is overlaid on my vision it has me thinking about what other senses of mine may be crossed. I only see the patterns with my eyes closed or in the dark; It makes me wonder what I’m not seeing by keeping my eyes open.

Hello again, Grimericans! Can you feel that crispness in the air, or in the case of our Canadian Brethren, the freezing cold in the studio.  Halloween is getting closer and closer and the night of frights that most of us look forward to every year is almost on our doorstep, and probably begging for candy… I’ve decided to look a little bit more into the history of the origin of a famous ritualistic teenager pastime, that which involves summoning an evil entity to one’s mirror. Damn, teenagers are stupid. I must admit being this stupid at one time, which doesn’t say much for my generation. In all fairness, a lot of generations before me have engaged in this rite of passage, and in all likelihood, many generations after yours and mine will continue to do so, although with some futuristic variation. I of course am talking about the varied story of Bloody Mary.

                                                                        I would summon this daily if I could.

 

The Mirror Witch has many names. Agnes, Black Agnes, Aggie, Bloody Mary, Hell Mary, Bloody Bones, Mary Worth, Mary Worthington, Mary Whales, Mary White, Mary Jane, Mary Lou, Svarte Madame, and of course, probably the most famous two out of all of the variations, Sally and Kathy. Okay, the latter two might not be as well-known as mainstream as the rest but they’re still included. The stories involved with the origin of the Mirror Witch are as varied as what to call her. In some versions, usually the ones associated with Mary Worth or Worthington, she is an actual witch while others indicate she was merely accused of practicing the dark arts. In either case, here fate usually ends with here tied to a stake shrieking a curse to the townsfolk who sentenced her to this horrific end. The curse being if her name is mentioned in front of a mirror in a darkened room, that she would send her soul for the foolish mortal. Another version of the Mary Worth story that involves the same ending has her as a 19th century woman who lived north of Chicago in Lake County where she would capture and subsequently torture runaway slaves. When the locals discovered her demented ways, well, ya know, the whole ‘burning at the stake’ thing. I’m not saying that this version of Mary Worth isn’t real or that her hobby of torture never happened, I’m just saying that I couldn’t find anything to suggest that she ever existed or that these events took place in Lake County, Illinois. Other versions tell of a woman who was in a terrible accident and for some reason can be summoned through a mirror. The story I heard growing up was similar to that of the Lady in White stories in that she was a woman who killed her infant, intentional or not, and was forever seeking it or a replacement. The Bloody Mary of American Folklore often gets confused with the very real Mary I of England. She was the daughter of the infamous Henry VIII and after deposing her wrongfully appointed cousin, Lady Jane Grey, of the throne, she was, despite the brief reigns of her cousin and Empress Matilda, the first queen regnant of England. She earned her unfortunate nickname, “Bloody Mary”, from the vast amount of Protestants that she had executed while she was reestablishing Catholicism to England. She WAS NOT given the nickname because she had the habit of killing young, virgin girls whose blood she would drain and then bathe in in order to retain her youth and beauty. That was Countess Erzsébet Báthory of Hungary. Indeed, the names and historical figures, fictional or real, are as diverse as the rituals used to summon her.

“Okay, after 3 months of training, I finally got hit to do it. What’s this ritual for again? Summoning WHAT?!?!”

 

 

 

So the version that I heard growing up in the Pacific Northwest was pretty strait forward. First you gather your cojones and then proceed into a room with a mirror, usually the bathroom. Next step was to do a second count on your cojones present, then turn off the lights so that the room is pitch black. Then, assuming all of your cojones were in order, you would then proceed to say, “Bloody Mary” three times in the mirror. Then the magic starts to happen because before your eyes, a very bloody and very horrific looking woman appears in the mirror holding what looks like an infant child wrapped so that you can’t make out any distinguishing features. The mirror witch then tosses here child at you and you have one of two options. #1: You can nope right the fuck out of anything doing with touching the baby being hurled in your general direction, the result of which is you dying a gruesome and terrible death by having your face scratched off or #2: Catch the mystery child only to find it is as gruesome as its mother, its mother who now wants to pulls you into the mirror with her as a cheap caregiver for her forsaken offspring and ultimately driving you insane. Why the hell did we do this as kids again? Anyways, like I said, the ritual varies greatly. The amount of chants needed can be from one to one hundred. The chant itself can be any variation of Bloody Mary’s name. Some include the need to assert your belief in the entity, “I believe in Mary Worth.” Etc. Some of these ritual include the use of a single candle, others involve a candle on either side of the mirror. A few allow a companion or two. There are some where you start the chant off in a whisper and slowly build momentum in a near scream. There is one where the person performing the summoning is required to spin around in circle whilst chanting, glancing at the mirror with each pass. Usually around the thirteenth repetition, a face become visible in the mirror. You then would presumably be too dizzy to fight back. Touché Mirror Witch, touché.

Mirror have always been thought of as gateways or portals to other worlds or dimensions. An old custom use to be to cover the mirrors in a house when someone passed away. The though being that if the recently departed caught a glimpse of him or her self, they would get trapped in the mirror. This is when the deceased used to spend days in the house of family being prepared for burial. As far as the story at hand, the most commonly accepted version of the origin of this practice was a ritual to for young maids to see the future and find out what their future husband would look like. It usually involved holding a candle in one hand and a hand mirror in the other to help guide your way walking backward in a dark house. The young maid would have to walk backwards up a flight of stairs into a room with a mirror. She then would spin around to face the mirror and the image of her future husband would be there. Then again, sometimes she wouldn’t see her future husband. Sometimes she would see a skull, or a skeleton or even the Grim Reaper himself. This would indicate that the young lass would die before being wed. It was probably this part of the tale that eventually morphed into the Mirror Witch lore we have today. We’ve come a long way, huh? This practice was also supposed to be performed on Halloween which is another suggestion as to why it moved into the direction it has taken. Either way, as long as you keep the lights on and your mouth shut, you should be fine right? Actually, there are tales that the entity can get to you through any mirror in a dark room without the use of the incantation. So I guess my power bill is going to sky rocket from the lights being on 24/7 or I’ll have to start shaving at work because of the lack of mirrors in my house. Decisions, decisions. Well that’s it for me Grimerica. Stay Classy.
