This is a time of year when witches are acceptable, yes…even celebrated. The traditional celebrations of Halloween, also known as All Hallows Eve was adopted by our customs long ago. The term itself originates from a Scottish term which is a derivative from (All) Hallow(s) E(v)en which evolved into Halloween.
The event itself derives from pagan roots which was a celebration or festival of the dead called Parentalia, but more typically called Samhain (pronounced sah-win/sow-in). The souls of the dead were said to visit your home, and these feasts and festivals were held to beckon them to attend, even by setting a place at the table.
However the spirits and fairies could also cause harm, therefore bonfires were deemed as a protective power which was used in divination rituals. The practice of mumming and guising involved people going from house to house in costume reciting songs in exchange for food…hence the name “Trick or Treating”.
But the very form of this ritual is not as innocent as it seems. Witches are not playful, nor are they a friend! There’s no such thing as a ‘white’ witch, and these rituals are forms of sorcery.
Salem Witch Trials
Spectral evidence refers to a witness testimony that the accused person’s spirit or spectral shape appeared to him/her in a dream at the time that the person’s physical body was at another location. This was an excepted practice of testimony during the Salem witch trials but with a warning that the devil was sly enough to pose as an innocent.
This evidence was accepted on the basis that Satan and his minions were powerful enough to send their spirits, or specters, to a innocent person to lead them astray.
In spectral evidence, the of victims’ conjectures is governed only by the limits of their fears and imaginations, whether or not objectively proven facts are forthcoming to justify them. [State v. Dustin, 122 N.H. 544, 551 (N.H. 1982)].”
The following passage from Peter Charles Hoffer’s works the Salem Witchcraft Trials: A Legal History is further clarifying (page 78-79):
“Mather elected to straddle the [spectral evidence] controversy rather than resolve it.
Mather fretted, “Our neighbors at Salem are blown up after a sort, with an infernal gunpowder, under the floor.” What could that mean? To us the reference may be obscure, but to his fellow Puritans the implication was obvious. In 1605 a band of Roman Catholics, driven to despair by King James’s persecution of their faith, tried to blow up the English houses of Parliament. The plan was discovered at the last minute, and the conspirators were executed, but the “gunpowder plot” became a symbol among Protestants of the danger Roman Catholicism posed to English Protestantism. In 1689 Parliament drove James II, a Roman Catholic, from the throne of England and replaced him with a Dutch Protestant, William of Orange, and James’s daughter, Mary, William’s wife. They were to rule jointly. A war followed in which Protestants battled Roman Catholics at home and abroad. This was the war that brought the Indians and their French Roman Catholic allies to the doorstep of Salem. Thus the Puritans saw Roman Catholicism as a continuing and powerful threat to Protestantism in England and the survival of Puritanism in New England. They also believed that Roman Catholic priests were in league with the Devil. Reports of priests and Indians worshiping the Devil before they attacked Massachusetts towns regularly made the rounds of the colony.
But the problem of spectral evidence remained, for the only ones who could see the witches in their spectral form, and thus say who it was that caused their pain, were the accusers themselves. Here Mather could find no answers in his library. He must leave it and enter the world of ordinary people. No abstract theory or abstruse theology could dictate commonly accepted contemporary notions of the truth of testimony.”
So, we see this was a key point of evidence delivered against the witches at Salem in 1692. Witchcraft was a huge part of the English culture since at least the fourteenth century, but was not considered a crime until 1558. The Catholic church first prosecuted witches as heretics because they believed sorcery disrupted the natural plan of GOD. Isn’t this ironic considering the majority of the Roman Catholic Church is full of Jesuits and Freemasons now, and there GOD is not the same as ours!!
Then, we have Queen Elizabeth I’s reign in 1558 which marked a true beginning of a clear secular statute concerning witchcraft, which imposed varied punishments. Guilty verdicts were common throughout the first half of Elizabeth’s reign, confession being the most coveted form of evidence. And truly remarkable is the fact that the Royalty within this branch in our times are commonplace practitioners of sorcery!
So, we have a world which has completely turned on its head!
The direction would be near Proctor Street, near the intersection of Boston and Bridge Streets with a nearby water-tower with a Witch riding a broomstick. But, the story of 18 people accused as witches in the 1692 Salem Witch hysteria ends as victims at the end of a hangman’s rope on Gallow’s Hill, otherwise known as Witch Hill or Witchcraft Hill.
As if the supernatural twist associated with this location was not enough they’ve turned this site into a CHILDREN’S PARK!!! Seriously! The site where so many lost their lives, guilty and innocent were hastily dumped nearby which makes this area full of paranormal activity. So, let’s put children up there! So crazy!
In case you don’t know what this is, they are paths that connect sites with unusual energy, but most of the sites have devastating events which have taken place on them. And eerily enough, most have churches on them! Some say that the energy which exists on ley lines are said to amplify the emotions or effect the thinking of people when they are on or near them.
The paranormal phenomena which existed then and now fascinate many due to its connection to the Salem Witch trials. On the 1692 maps, you can lay out a definite pattern which ran across the locations of Howard Street Cemetery, Bridget Bishop’s Apple Orchard, to the Judge Corwin’s home, also known as “Witch House”, since so many were condemned there, then we have Judge Hathorne’s homes, to Sheriff George Corwin’s home, and several other’s which lead to the Gallow’s Hill. This all connects where the inquests were held, to the place where the shackles were made, and on and on…
Is all this paranormal activity giving demons exponential powers and used as a catalyst from then until now where the activity has not ceased one iota.
I have no doubt the spirits residing within these areas are true, but contrary to what others would have you believe these are not the spirits of the deceased or those who didn’t ‘cross over’. There’s only demons which reside there. Any location which contains this type of pain and suffering, torture and murder including suicide are going to possess these creatures, and they gain energy from these horrific events, this is why they stay.
If you believe on don’t, it makes no difference. For demons exist everywhere and events like this only magnify their presence.
PRESENT DAY SPECTRALS
Considering the amount of witchcraft and other kinds of sorcery, it’s no wonder we’re having an increase in the paranormal. But consider this; we have no laws which restrict their activity; we have no religion which is illegal, especially witchcraft.
The amount of spectral evidence which we deal with today is increasing and will not stop. Satan has his hand in it all and his power is increasing. His minions are working overtime! The ‘holidays’ which include the type of events such as Halloween is deplorable. Satan is laughing his butt off at the human race, for there are so many who do his bidding and do it willingly.
Channeling is one feature I would describe as spectral evidence. It’s performed by millions on a daily basis! They’re not channeling their friends and neighbors, no indeed their not. They’re channeling demons and the few who know aren’t going to warn anyone soon, instead they advertise their deeds.
But wait, that’s not all..
The Salem Witches’ Halloween Ball-The Witch’s Familiar
A Night of Nercomancy!
A Ball with activities such as free psychic readings, a channeling to commune with the spirit of Salem’s legendary Tituba, the slave girl from the Caribbean whose stories and magic helped to ignite Salem’s infamous witch trials.
And if that wasn’t enough…
The Salem Witches Magic Circle
A celebratory night to cast spells and speak to the dead at the magical ritual of Samhain.
The Psychic Fair, Ghost Hunting 101, Speaking to the Dead, this was just a few of the mentioned activities on this page. Can you imagine the amount of demonic activity which will be taking place on these nights? And I’m sure the week of these events which cast a gloom over Salem and criminal activity will soar!
Spine tingling events like this are not the minority but are actually in the majority of most countries in this world, especially England and the United States…the sister continents.
So, with Halloween coming soon, it’s only fitting to give a warning or if you will advice”
WARNING: Witchcraft is a ritualistic activity, and placing your children in costumes and sending them to door’s of complete strangers is NOT safe. Don’t think for a minute just because your sending your child to ‘church’ that it excludes your participation in these pagan traditions. DEMONS don’t care where you are!
