Our ancestors knew the best way to pass down knowledge is through story, especially SPOOKY ones. They gave us the answers to vanquish all those metaphorical monsters that come for us in the dark. For what it’s worth, these are the tips I picked up:
1. Stick with the good witches. Anyone with deep connection and knowledge of healing plants and minerals and the know-how to use them is a good friend to have around and/or become.
2. Beware of the dark magic. It's often disguised by the warlocks behind pharmaceutical companies and processed food industries. Much of it charms us into thinking it’s good, but in reality, it usually just makes us sick enough to be pliable.
3. Don’t let anyone or thing eat up all your brains. Whether it’s on an electronic screen, something eaten or drunk or a person endlessly talking out their ass—if the experience makes us feel duller, dumber, and zombie-fied, it’s best to run away. Ideally, towards the things that stimulate new ideas and creativity.
4. Make peace with the past. Don’t let the ghosts of regret haunt you.
5. Vampires come in all shapes and forms. If we come across anyone or any activity that vants to suck our life forces dry in order to bind us into servitude—Expose the mf-ers and their misdeeds to the light and they’ll disintegrate.
