And What You Can do about It
In the last few years, the zombie trend has popped up everywhere. Zombies star in young adult books and TV shows. Folks even don creepy makeup to stagger about cities for zombie walks.
But this trend is old news in the country of Haiti. Apparently, belief in zombies there is quite common. There are even documented cases of zombification, including the most famous, Clairvius Narcisse.
In 1960s Haiti, Clairvius Narcisse and his brother had bickered over land. Clairvius’ brother then lassoed a bokor, or sorcerer, to poison him with a mixture of toad venom and pufferfish toxin. He returned home, collapsed, and “died.” Actually Clairvius been induced into a coma that mimicked death. After his burial, the sorcerer kept him in a mindless, drugged state with a paste made from datura (jimson weed family). He labored for years alongside other zombies on a sugar plantation. After the bokor died, and his mind-addling datura doses ceased, Clairvius rose out of his foggy state and escaped the plantation. He returned to his family after 16 years when he found out that his vengeful brother had died.
True? Perhaps. Even the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has jumped on the zombie bandwagon. They’ve created a book and emergency preparedness curriculum around the zombie apocalypse premise.
I don’t believe in the zombie apocalypse as predicted by doomsdayers and drama mamas. The zombie apocalypse is happening right now, but in a much sneakier, more subtle way.
Many, many people have already turned into zombies and don’t even know it. Check out the list below to see if you’ve been zombified!
Signs of Zombification or Utter Zombiehood
- Apathetic and lazy
- Not getting enough sleep, night after night
- Blame, shame, and complain- refusal to take personal responsibility
- Hopelessness- thinks that life cannot get better, ever
- Feeling of imminent doom
Leave the pit of despair, break up the pity party!
Anything that leads you away from your greater purpose is a slip into zombielandia.
