Hey kids, as we approach Halloween I just wanted you guys to be careful and say DON’T FUCK WITH SPIRITS. Don’t mess with Ouija Boards, don’t talk to no dead people, don’t fuck with demons, don’t summon shit, don’t dick around in abandoned buildings. If you are considering a thing, just think, “would a white person in a horror movie do this thing?” If the answer is yes, then don’t do the thing.
I’ve honestly never seen the appeal of this. Because any sort of “game” like that can end one of two ways: it’s all bullshit and you’re an idiot trying to summon who-knows-what using a Barbie doll and questionable incense or option two: it’s all real and you’re the idiot that summoned who-knows-what using a Barbie doll and some questionable incense. Enjoy the rest of your very short life.
I agree with a lot of this, but not all of it. For the most part if’s a matter of respect, knowledge, and intention.
Should you try to summon a demon? No. Should you fuck with spirits? No. But I don’t think talking to dead people is a bad idea. Halloween, or Samhain, or Dios De Los Muertos is the time when the veil between this world and the next is the thinnest. When we remember those that have died, and make alters for them, lay out food for them, or talk to them. And if it’s about respect, or grief, or remembrance I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it.
If it’s a joke, or trying to prove something, or being an ass that’s a different matter.
Well, this specifically relates to “not fucking with spirits”, to “games” like the Japanese possessed doll games and doing stuff that goes way over your head, either because you won’t succeed and look stupid or because, worse, you WILL succeed and being still way over your head it’ll end badly.
