Monday comes from Luna, Moon, Levanah, being the day of the Silver’s Ruler. Moonday my friends is the day of the Souls, of the deceased ones in the western modern system of time classification.
Often, during the weekend meetings, besides the usual and nice talkings with family and our beloved ones, in the conversations, deads are mentioned.
The tradition says that if the name of a dead one is mentioned three times at least and by two or more, the Spirit comes. I haven’t invented that, it is almost a direct quote from Allan Kardec. It is quite well known among Spiritualists but mostly, people believes that Spirits exists or not only depending on their will or needs which is a poor demonstration of metaphysical solipsism.
So, very easily, if you spend your weekend talking about deads, before going to bed give them something, at least a prayer and a candle. Otherwise don’t be surprised if you wake up tired and with nightmares. They arrive, called by our good words and rememberings, from the land of the deads. Often during funerary rites incredible amounts of food and alcohool are consumed by the guests. A kind of party for both worlds.
Now, you know why you woke up with tanta resaca and it wasn’t the alcohool probably . Los muertos son una realidad.
