One of the most famous urban legends is that of Bloody Mary. A few movies have been made based on this story.

Do you all think there is really any truth in the legend of Bloody Mary, or do you think the story has been embellished and distorted too much - as is often the case with many urban legends - over the years?

One thing I DO know: true or not, it's a BAD_WORD scary story!

Possible, the power of visualization, empowering it with our own emotions, and the darker entities around us which attaches themselves to the thoughts we create.

Have any of you all tried it? We did when we were young but we didn't take it very seriously. Just did it to scare ourselves (and it worked).

Haven't tried it. I admit it, I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to Bloody Mary.

Yeah, I'd like to be that many people have tried this "Bloody Mary" ritual over the years. Very foolish, just like messing around with the Ouija board.

I'm one of those people with an innate fear of mirrors anyway and I think it stems from seeing something about Bloody Mary on television as a very young child, lol.

Anyway, there are so many different variants of the Bloody Mary legend that its hard to say which ones are more...accurate...in terms of holding a grain of truth than others, especially when you start getting into regional variants based off local legends.

However, I will say that like similar to scrying, when you sit and stare by candlelight into a dark mirror, chanting, you're basically inducing a state of hypnagogia and you WILL start to see distortions and possibly hallucinations depending on how far you take it and how susceptible you are.

The very first seance we ever attempted as children involved this legend. I was around age nine. When nothing actually happened....I got up from the table and shoved my chair back and yelled "I don't believe in ghosts anyway!"....in a split second the entire building beside us (which was an old wooden barn) started rattling and shaking like an earthquake was taking place! I ran hysterically to my mother and made her unlock the barn to prove to me my brother was not inside and somehow creating the disturbance. He was not inside. I think that is when I got hooked. There were several witnesses...all of whom never participated in those types of adventures again. That was 42 years ago...and I stand by my story to this day.

I have never really tried it, but depending upon the mental state of the person, anything is possible.

It's a fact that many myths and legends are rooted in truth....lets research this one shall we? and it is also a fact that great minds are seldom understood....one person's mental disorder may be another person's genius.
