⛧Witchy Wednesday⛤: The World of Apparitions


TaroTransPride, Pride Author

Have you ever heard of the paranormal? Of course you have! If you haven’t, then where have you been? Many of you believe that ghosts, devils and angels contacting and playing with us are all childsplay. Not saying you’re wrong, but yeah, you’re wrong. Personally, I live with apparitions. Now you might be wondering, “What is an apparition?” Oh boy, are you in for a long ride.

Apparitions can be described as “ghost-like figures or people.” So, in a more understandable way, an apparition is another word for ghost, or spirit. Yes, some can be mean, but most spirits are kind and just want a friend. They all get a bad reputation because of one thing we paranormal investigators call “Poltergeists”. You may know that it’s a pretty popular term when it comes to sci-fi movies and horror films. A poltergeist is mostly what they are called in movies but a bit different. They tend to be more of a prankster type of spirit and are responsible for loud noises, falling objects, anything of that sort that might give you a little spook, so to speak.

Let’s move onto those friendly spirits, the ones we normally overlook. Many of these are in graveyards, houses, schools, and populated areas. Yes, even in your own home. Don’t be afraid, these are here just to be friends, or maybe it’s a past family member who wants to say hello. I have many of these, mostly children. Different people can lure different types of spirits. I personally attract teens and young children but have a few adults. I wonder who you might attract.

Now for the darker stuff. If you’re sensitive to blood, murder, suicide, any of that then I suggest this is where you leave. Just a warning. 

As a kid, many people played a game called “Bloody Mary”. I sure did! Now the rules were to go into a bathroom with the lights off in the middle of the night with a lit candle and stand in front of the mirror and repeat “Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, are you here?”. Ah yes, those little horror games we never even knew were so bad. You know, Bloody Mary was a real person. Bloody Mary, also known as Mary I of England, or Queen Mary the first. She was the first daughter of King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon (before she was divorced, beheaded, live~! Okay no more SIX references, sorry.). She got the name “Bloody Mary” from taking after her father’s cruel ways and beheading so many people. Then we there is Anne Boleyn’s daughter, Queen Elizabeth I.

Okay, back on topic. Do you remember ever seeing a dark, shadow, figure at the door to your bedroom at night? Or felt something following you in the woods. Perhaps a dark figure in the corner of your eye? Yup, you guessed it. Paranormal. These are called Shadow People. Yes, many do experience Sleep Paralysis and these figures will be a part of it but just be lucky it’s a dream. Or is it?

Urban Legends. Alright, who cares, they’re just legends and stories designed to scare kids. Yeah, you’re right. Many were designed to teach kids to not do certain things, mostly originating in Japan, China, and Korea although we have our fair share of legends too. Let’s take a look at Kuchisake Onna, popularly known as “The Slit-Mouthed Woman”. A legend designed to teach kids to not walk alone at night and to not talk to strangers.

Well, I hope you’re all still here. Paranormal might just be normal one day. Embrace our friends beyond the barrier of life and I’ll see you next ⛧Witchy Wednesday⛤.

Stay paranoid my baby wiccans and I’ll see you next time. Bye bye!
