A lot of you may be able to tell my favorite show is Supernatural, this show deals with two brothers who hunters of the supernatural world but what truth behind these supernatural beings is there? Is there any fact? Or is it all fiction?
1. The Devils Trap
The devil’s trap was inspired by Key of Solomon or Clavicula Salomonis in Latin, which is a Grimoire or a book of magic.
Quote fromKey of Solomon:
SOLOMON, the Son of David, King of Israel, hath said that the beginning of our Key is to fear God, to adore Him, to honour Him with contrition of heart, to invoke Him 1 in all matters which we wish to undertake, and to operate with very great devotion, for thus God will lead us in the right way. When, therefore, thou shalt wish to acquire the knowledge of Magical Arts and Sciences, it is necessary to have prepared the order of hours and of days, and of the position of the Moon, without the operation of which thou canst effect nothing; but if thou observest them with diligence thou mayest easily and thoroughly arrive at the effect and end which thou desirest to attain.Key of Solomon
Exorcizamus te, omnis immundus spiritus
omnis satanica potestas, omnis incursio
infernalis adversarii, omnis legio,
omnis congregatio et secta diabolica.
Ergo draco maledicte
et omnis legio diabolica
Cessa decipere humanas creaturas,
eisque aeternae Perditionis venenum propinare.
Vade, Satana, inventor et magister
omnis fallaciae, hostis humanae salutis.
Humiliare sub potenti manu dei,
contremisce et effuge, invocato a
nobis sancto et terribili nomine,
quem inferi tremunt.
Ab insidiis diaboli, libera nos, Domine.
Ut Ecclesiam tuam secura tibi facias libertate servire
te rogamus, audi nos.
Ut inimicos sanctae Ecclesiae humiliare digneris,
te rogamus, audi nos.
Terribilis Deus de sanctuario suo.
Deus Israhel ipse truderit virtutem
et fortitudinem plebi Suae.
Benedictus deus. Gloria patri.
The first sentence is from a 1952 Roman Ritual from the Ritual Romanum and translates too:
“We cast you out, every unclean spirit, every satanic power, every onslaught of the infernal adversary, every diabolical group and sect…” this ritual continues with Jesus Christ and this ritual does not. It is said that some fans say Sam fixes it to be more like that.
In “Devil’s Trap,” the rest of this next line and more is mostly unintelligible – however, this is what was lifted in between “ergo” and “perditionis” (which begins the next part that Sam says clearly) from the Rituale Romanum online: draco maledicte et omnis legio diabolica adjuramus te per Deum + vivum, per Deum + verum, per Deum + sanctum, per Deum, qui sic dilexit mundum, ut Filium suum unigenitum daret, ut omnis, qui credit in eum, non pereat, sed habeat vitam aeternae (with everything in between that cut out and Sam maybe picking it up here) cessa decipere humanas creaturas, eisque aeternae… (because there was not time for Sam to say all of that; they must have edited a bit, and what Bobby says in the “Born Under A Bad Sign” version seems to support this way of editing the original Catholic ritual.Exorcism's
Ghost have been talked about since the 16th century, the word was derived from “gast” which is “a terrifying rage” so it is connecting to spirits turning into vengeful ones for staying too long on earth and not moving on. Ghosts can make themselves be heard just like in Supernatural with sounds, knocking stuff over or moving stuff.
Here is a picture I found of a ghost sighting:
any paranormalists pursue the concept of ghosts as proof of evidence of life after death. In the past, ghosts were purposeful – they remained on earth to avenge their death or to reveal information. That is rarely reported now. Other beliefs (not facts) about ghosts include the following: A violent or emotional death could trap the spirit of a dead person in the world of the living. Animals have a greater sensitivity to spirits and paranormal energy than humans. Graveyards may be paranormal hotspots because of the high emotion level and that they are liminal place between the worlds of the living and the dead. Historic buildings are often said to be haunted – mainly because of the cultural connotation of old houses having spirits that remain. Abandoned hospitals, asylums and prisons are said to be haunted due to the great emotional residue, pain, violence, and death that took place. Some ghosts may be sent “into the light” and made to leave. Ghost investigators will say ghosts are composed of energy that remains post-death. That energy influences or is associated in some way with electromagnetic fields. Paranormalists believe that ghosts feed off heat energy, batteries, electricity, electromagnetic fields or “earth energies”. Ghost FAQ
I believe in ghosts. There have been many haunted places in the US and other countries to confirm that there are people staying after they have passed on. Do salt and iron have effects on them? I don’t know but I do know many other believe in the afterlife and it gives them hope they’ll see their loved ones again. Should spirits stay? According to Supernatural, that is a big no.
