I’d like to re-share this post of my thoughts & insights on Halloween from an EX Spiritualist viewpoint. Also to mention a coming TV program & some other articles below.
(Please see below for my note : What Laura Did One Halloween …)
Here’s a link to a radio interview. Myself and Ex Traditional Satanist Steve Burns of Canada discussed the evils of Halloween, giving examples from our former lifestyles. It was broadcast in October 2011, on the show Set The Captives Free, hosted by Lynn an Ex Medium, Texas, USA. Blog Talk Radio link.
Special program for Halloween 2014. My friend and ministry colleague Pastor Michael Cummins will be on Revelation TV, on his LIVE show, Voice In The Wilderness. It’s on the morning of Halloween, Thurs midnight, ’til 2am Friday 31st October, London Time.
You can watch it live online on this link to Revelation TV.
I don’t celebrate Halloween, but because it exists I always get inundated with online questions about the New Age and the Occult, from September through to November. I’d really appreciate your prayers very much at this time. These 3 months are also my busiest times of the year for public ministry engagements and media interviews too.
Because of the increased attention on the occult at Halloween, I take more opportunities to reach out during this season. It also seems more people order copies of my books during this season too!
(More articles to come soon, for example, on ministries that help people recover and be healed from Satanic Ritual Abuse. In recent years, I’ve been extremely humbled to help women from such backgrounds and known Christ’s great compassion for them. These people really need our prayers. In the meantime, for other articles, please see the sub-headings below this one in the menu of this blog.)
I’ve collected about 15 videos on the origins & realities of Halloween by police, Ex Satanists, Ex Occultists & others.
Some of them admit the truth that diabolical practices & even ritualistic murders are performed by some, but not all types of Satanists, during the whole month of October, but particularly on Halloween.
It’s no surprise then, that Traditional and Generational Satanists call Halloween ‘Satan’s Birthday.’ I’ve featured these videos on my YouTube channel. (See link at foot of article).

My thoughts and concerns from an EX Spiritualist viewpoint.
As an EX Spiritualist, I remember Mediums would say Halloween was the best night of the year to contact spirits; so called ‘Spirit Guides’ and alleged ‘dead relatives’! Spiritualists would claim that on Halloween, they felt the veil between our world and the after-world was ‘thinner.’ I heard on TV, Derek Acorah, the UK’s best known Medium say this during Halloween in 2012. Is that not a telling statement spiritually, considering it’s also the most evil night of the year for Satanists?!
Could it be that Mediums find seances easiest on Halloween, simply because there are more spirits around, having been summoned by certain types of Satanists, during their annual Satanic celebrations, rituals an invocations on 31st October? Yet Mediums don’t seem to see that possible link, or consider that their ‘spirit friends’ could actually be evil impostors & demonic in nature.
I’ve been honoured to speak about Halloween in churches & radio interviews about H’een since 2008, including one with an EX Satanist in 2011, Steve Burns from Canada. From our experience, we explained that EX Occultists know truths on Halloween, so it’s perhaps worth hearing such true stories, before you make decisions on any Halloween party invitations you may receive.
Should Christians Participate in Halloween?
Some say, when they participate in Halloween it’s just fun, pretending to be goblins, devils, etc, & they don’t literally participate in any actual Occult activity.
Maybe so, but pretending to be such things is a form of imitation. Does the Bible encourage anything like Halloween or imitation of it? 3 John 1:11 ‘Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good.’ And also, Ephes 5:11 ‘do not imitate the deeds of darkness but rather expose them …’ ‘Abstain from all appearance of evil,’ 1 Thessalonians 5:22 and Ephesians 5, 1-2. 1 ‘Be ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children; and walk in love …’
If you even go to a Halloween event as a guest, you are, condoning it before the Lord and in the eyes of those attending. Also in a sense ‘partnering’ with the very spirits of Halloween. Indeed, also with any occult spirits that may actually be there waiting for the possibility, or opportunities, that Occult activities may occur. They know this can give them an open door into people’s lives.
Even if, at it’s basic level, it’s simply producing a fear in the hearts of children. We mustn’t be ignorant of the wiles of the enemy. Spirits do indeed wander around looking for ‘open doors’. They are intelligent and know when and where events are occurring in your city. As opportunists they will plan where they are going next. Remember when Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, the scripture says he waited until an opportune time. Luke 4:13
‘When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.’
Ultimately, for Christians, what are you actually celebrating or impersonating on Halloween? What is there to praise or celebrate about ghouls, goblins, devils, fear, death, blood and gore! Jesus is Life. He came to bring peace and life. Life in abundance.
What Can Christians Do?
I think this is a great rule of thumb when deciding what and what not to participate in!
Perhaps, we could all consider organising a prayer night on Halloween instead, praying for the practical safety of kids who go Trick or Treating, and also the spiritual protection of those in our neighbourhoods who may be forced into being involved in some darker activities on this night. A meeting for praise and worship to glorify Christ and change the focus of this night would be welcomed by many I feel. Does your church do that?
I’ve been a Christian since 1994, but can’t remember hearing of an adult prayer night on H’een, until 2012! I guess it could be just because most Christians are unaware of what demonic spirits do that night, the spiritual activity or what actually can occur that night, (e.g., if there’s any Traditional Satanists in our cities planning animal & human abuse and sacrifices).
Or maybe most churches aren’t bold enough to take it on, or are concerned their church members may worry about some facts of Halloween, so it’s best to ignore it, bury our heads in the sand, not mention it or ‘give the devil any attention!’
But prevention is better than cure. If we pray on Halloween, our prayers could prevent someone being a victim of SRA, and maybe that same person would actually find your church and seek your help after the crime! So why not pray before such things occur?
I’ve hated the years I spent on H’een when I was just sitting at home praying, when we could have been gathered in a big prayer meeting somewhere! I know some Christian groups in the USA will be fasting & praying all day of 31st October. It’d be great if more Christians could encourage Christians in their own city and country to do this too.

What Laura Did One Halloween.
For Halloween 2012, I was invited to go with a group of Christians to set up a stall and offer to pray for people who were having a huge annual popular Halloween street party, in the north of Scotland. It was a Samhuiin/Samhain Festival ran by New Agers & Occultists on the night of Halloween. There were adults and children dressed in costumes and exploring New Age and Occult activities.
There was loud frightening music, Druid style processions and many stalls too, e.g., Mediums offering psychic readings or ‘Ghost Tours’ around the area that night. There were New Age and Occult book stalls too. I was so glad I went and so grateful to the Lord, that some of those people who came to us asking for prayer, experienced Jesus and some even received physical healing from Him! We gave out leaflets so they could follow up on their journey towards Jesus as Saviour.
We are called to be salt and light, and take His light into areas of darkness. I would definately do that again and encourage any of you to pray about whether to do the same on Halloween too.
Do keep your neighbourhood in prayer during this Halloween season. ‘Greater is He who is in you, than he who is in the world.’ 1 John 4:4 Light the night, let your light shine!
I’ll end with this wonderful quote. It’s either by famous preacher C.T Studd or William Booth! ‘Some people want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell. I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.’
