All Souls Day, aka Day Of The Dead, is the celebration of dearly departed souls that takes place on November 2nd. Depending on what part of the world you’re from it could range from parties commemorating the dead to solemn ceremonies of somber remembrance. Ultimately, it is a holiday for humans to come to terms with the concept of inevitable death. However, there is the hope of ascending to a far better place in the afterlife. Now a moment of silence for the over 100 billion people who have already died throughout human history!
The Supernatural All Soul’s Day
Day Of The Dead’s paranormal claim to fame is in fact the return of the dearly departed in various forms. Naturally, Halloween provides plenty of that via the veil between life and death being at its weakest. There is also the awesome energy of The Spirit Of Halloween. Enchanted energy required to fuel the return of the dead from the great beyond. However, that energy is first reserved for the living along with not being enough of an anchor to defy the bonds of Heaven, or even Hell, for the majority of the deceased who wish to return. The day after Halloween, All Saints Day (Hallowmas), provides an abundance of excess Angelic energy ripe for the dead to harvest. On that day the Saints descend from Heaven to clean up the evil metaphysical messes of Halloween.
Angelic Energy Reserves Fuel Heavenly Souls
The angelic energies aren’t available to the dead until after the Angels leave on All Souls Day. If deceased humans tried to return to Earth on Hallowmas then the Saints and Angels would detect them. Then they’d halt such things as it goes against the natural order. This is why Day Of The Dead is the biggest day for the defiance of death. It has the weakest barrier into our reality coupled with plenty of metaphysical energy reserves. Those who come back have unfinished business but never became a ghost or left before they had closure.
Surviving Loved Ones Provide Anchors For The Dearly Departed
It’s also a time for current ghosts to gain more power and inform people of their existence. If enough individuals celebrate the dead then this can compel a descent from the higher dimensional afterlife. The souls of the living act as a guide and anchor to return upon. Thankfully, the righteous energies repel demonic activity thus reassuring those making contact with the dead. Demons are notorious for imitating dead humans for various nefarious plans. Professional Mediums work overtime on Day Of The Dead with the highest accuracy. In addition, this is the only day an Ouija Board can be safely used to contact the dearly departed without the worry of raising some dark entity from the bowels of hell!
The Ghosts Of The Departed
There are varying degrees of death restoration dependent on one’s motivation, skill, anchors to this world, and enchanted energy available. Those summoned by Necromancers, Witches, and other magic masters will materialize here in a more substantial form. On the lowest end, we have those who come back as ghosts. Even if they are Angels in Heaven their crossing of the veil between realities causes their memories and powers to fade. It’s like waking up from a dream. They forget the afterlife and only remember this one Their Angelic form gives way to a ghostly one. This is something that only occurs with human angels. The original angels who leave Heaven without a pass fall from grace and become demons!
Making Contact With A Ghost Relative
These new ghosts might only respond to an Ouija Board, a Medium, or register as Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP). They could also cause standard haunting disturbances. These include electrical shorts, lights flickering, interference with communication devices, cold spots, small objects being moved, and unusual smells flowing forth. Actually appearing to the human eye takes more power and skill. Then there’s taking on a solid physical form that can be composed of light, or tightly packed photons to make a living dead hologram. They’re also a metaphysical matter form that is the direct translation of their soul into a pure physical matrix of a non-biological sort.
The Instinct To Inhabit Ones Own Corpse
Many visiting dead try to possess their corpses in varying states of decay. They may also attempt to reanimate their cremated ashes!. If successful they can become a Sapient Zombie. Those who form from their ashes are quite rare as it takes mega power. If they are able to pull it off then they literally look like a human made of ash or dust of a gray color. Many miss the mark thus causing Zombies to rise from their graves due to the brief connection attempt. This is why All Souls Day is the biggest day for the walking dead and professional Zombie Hunters. Vengeful human spirits, Mummies, and zombies are usually the only paranormal threats on this day. There are also those ghosts who may attempt to possess weak-willed humans in order to live again. These almost always end by the next day as the ghost doesn’t have anywhere the same power as a possessing demon. It’s also beyond difficult for two human souls to inhabit the same body.
The grand daddy of returns is the resurrection. Resurrections on All Soul’s Day are second only to Easter. Whether it be the amazing self-resurrection via sheer will or aid from Necromancy and other magic. When this occurs it might only be for one day or an eternity as an Immortal. It’s reliant on what energy source they’re dependent on. A true resurrection to life means no dependence on metaphysical energy except as it pertains to the underlying soul required by any human. The full restoration package usually includes complete healing of their ravaged body or the acquisition of a new one. Often with superhuman abilities.
The Temporary Status Of All Souls Day
When most of the former living return here it’s with the intent of a temporary visit. Unfortunately, once they forget the sweet paradise of the afterlife they think this is all there is. Their former life on Earth is beyond vivid again. So naturally, they fight to stay here. Luckily the majority of Day Of The Dead visitations and resurrections ends at the Witching Hour on November 3rd. On this first day of the Christmas Season, the last of the enchanted Angelic energies fade gracefully from the Earth or are absorbed by The Spirit Of Christmas. Without adequate energy, along with the living ending their mass celebrations, they rebound back into the light of Heaven. Many forget their time here as it fades like a dream. Although a fair number finally feel a sense of closure and have no wish to return on the next Day Of The Dead.
