Title: The holy death
Post by: astraladdict on August 16, 2011, 15:40:15
Witch craft, that's what the holy death is usually tied to, along with some mexican belief. They believe that when the holy death comes to you in your dream, for witch craft, she's giving you a test before she can grant you the power. I'm not to sure about that, and i've only done SOME witch craft. Not really my thing. Anyways, a long time ago i heard about her, studied up on her and kind of believe in her. The other day i dreamt about her. I wasn't thinking about her or anything so she wasn't on my mind before. I was standing outside in the dark and she was standing before me. So i'd like to ask, why do y'all think she came to my dreams? I need aid in this interpretation :/

Hi there, Speaking of death prediction, I find it really odd that one of the on-line death prediction services showed me the same death date that I was foretold in my dream about a year ago. http://yourdeathdate.info/1/index.html - I canít explain this coincidence in any other way except that there must be some kind of magic involved here.

If I remember correctly, Santa Muerte is the modernization of an old Aztec goddess (whose name I have already forgotten- either Mictecacihuatl or Tzompantli). In the Aztec era, she used to be one of the deities that required human sacrifice.  Allegedly it was christianized and used by druglords to instill fear in those who they affect- at this point they may even believe in her.  Even I personally don't 'believe' in deities (except as archetypes, probably) but since the association, at least in antiquity was with human sacrifice, I wouldn't mess with her.

Sometimes a dream is just a dream, just forget about it, it's probably nothing.

I encountered Mr. Death shortly after a full conscious projection and he was blocking my path as I tried to fly off into the night sky. I tried several times to go around him but he moved with me each time. I went back to my body and re-projected and next encountered some inferior zombie type thing that behaved the same way. So I gave up AP for the time being.

I realized as I wrote the details in my journal that the most obvious course of action should have been to ASK HIM what he was doing there!
... oh well... live and learn.

Note: this was a year ago and I am still alive.

I also think this Santa Muerte cult is another great example of how magic is a pervasive element in everyday life in Mexico.
