La Llorona is a ghost who is believed to have originated in Mexico through Aztec culture and legends, is it possible though to capture the Ghost of La Llorona through Ghost Box, EVP, and Ouija? The ghost of La LLorona is believed to not only haunt Mexico but the whole earth as she wanders the earth looking for the departed spirits of her children that she killed. Join us tonight as Tim attempts to communicate to La LLorona.
The Ghost story of La Llorona tells of a beautiful woman by the name of Maria who drowns her children in order to be with the man that she loved. The man would not have her, which devastated her. She would not take no for an answer, so she drowned herself in a river in Mexico City. Challenged at the gates of Heaven as to the whereabouts of her children, she is not permitted to enter the afterlife until she has found them. Maria or La Llorona is forced to wander the Earth for all eternity, searching in vain for her drowned offspring, with her constant weeping giving her the name “La Llorona”. She is trapped in between the living world and the spirit world. Parents often use this story to prevent their children from wandering out at night. In some versions of this tale and legend, La Llorona will kidnap wandering children who resemble her missing children. People who claim to have seen her say she appears at night or in the late evenings from rivers or lakes in Mexico. Some believe that those who hear the wails of La Llorona are marked for death, similar to the Gaelic banshee legend. She is said to cry, “¡Ay, mis hijos!” (“Oh, my children!”)
