But enough of that.
I've got rocky horror picture show live @ London's playhouse theatre hosted by Mel Giedroyc on let's go!
Essentially, block out all of your senses as best you can I use blindfold & earplugs then I set an alarm for 15min with vibrate lay it on my leg
Then I let mind wander.
The audience was Hella enthusiastic at shouting nazi slogans at the mention of Dr Scott and the creator was there and I dislike him and the other criminologist (another famous person with dangerous and discriminatory opinions)
Let's get back on with some of my other favourite styles of divination.
Mirror gazing is a simple and effective tool. All you need is a mirror a candle and some privacy in darkness
light the candle place it near the mirror so that you can see it in the mirror.
Then turn the lights off so that the empty space behind you is darkness.
Again about 15 mins is enough
Make notes and interpret.
These all have nocturnal/lunar connotations for the spoopy aesthetic
black (MVP of the season): divination, banishing, absorbing negative energies from a situation person place etc. Protection and binding.
Orange: attraction and encouragement work, creativity, self-expression
Consider lighting an orange candle and meditating to help with writers block
Wear a purple piece of jewellery to an important business meeting that needs to go smoothly.
Consider a gift of something green to help patch up an argument between friends.
TW violence and death in the following tweets
Drive a nail through its head.
Cut its heart out and slice it in half
Give it a sock with a loose thread(they are compelled to unravel it)
Take away and burn it's shroud
Bury it face down underneath a stream
Russia: upierczi, vampires from dead witches or heretics that had an aura of energy draining essentially. The field was so strong it could dry the dew off of plants.
Because of their ability to take an animals shape the often get confused with lobishmen a type of portugese werewolf.
They are known for seducing victims and only draining a small amount of blood from each
it was thought if a man has sex with one he would become impotent and a woman would become infertile.
It has a unique as hell & gross way to turn others.
Spit up regurgitated blood on people turns them
Bavaria: Nachehrer also has the most ridiculous nickname of Shroud eater as it's first meal in its unlife is its own shroud followed up by its own flesh & then its family
Also known for tying cows tails together
The vampiric poltergeist type spirit of a child who died from being weaned too soon.
It tosses pots and pans around in rages
It can be hypnotised with a branch of Hawthorne
This being is somewhere between a fairy and a vampire because it drinks the blood of the family that she is portenting doom for.
This being can make the souls of the deceased their familiars and send it's soul out to feast on the energy remnants of souls from recently deceased corpses.
But fear not nail it's clothes to its coffin while it's still wearing them and fill it's orifices with poppy & millet seed, you'll be safe
In Romania on st Andrews eve, the most dangerous day of the year for Romanian vampires apparently. But to protect against them turn all your household items upside down for the day to confuse them.
Maybe they're a vampire stealing your essence but don't fret dear friend find them burn them and drink their ashes mixed with water to cure yourself.
Keep an eye/ear out for these signs.
-corpse lights(will o the wisp type beings)
-an absence of birdsong
-dogs barking at grave or refusing to enter cemetery
-horses shying away from the grave
Do they have:
New nails or long hair
Lack of decomposition
Blood around the coffin or tomb
It may well have been a vampire as cockerels are synonymous with the sun and so their cry harms them.
In some traditions twins also be able to see vampires in their invisible form but only if their underwear was inside out
Vampires of all kinds can't resist having a count of things and if that doesn't work seeds like mustard and millet and poppy work well in orifices in a lot of folk lore
Appear to be ways of protecting against vampires depending on the culture.
Merrow are creatures that if you play #DnD you might be familiar with because like a.lot of early monsters they're were lifted from Celtic mythology.
They're Irish sea fairies often mixed up with mermaids
If you fight them they're likely to rip your limbs off and continue dragging you down so perhaps don't fight too hard.
The Irish equivalent of the headless horseman whenever he stops riding someone will die.
It throws buckets of blood at passers-by as it whispers the name of the next to die
