31 Days of Halloween – Day 21 The Witch Bottle

A witch needs a witch bottle – that is for certain.


A witch bottle is a container jar spell that protects the witch against evil spirits, magical attacks and protects their home. Accounts of witch bottles have been dated as far back as the 15th century.


Witch bottles are typically prepared for the witch by a fellow worker or by the witch themselves. The contents of the witch bottle vary to the specifics needed for that witch, but they will contain herbs, magical oils, stones or gems of some sort, needles, pins, and perhaps the nail clippings or hair clippings of the witch the bottle is meant for.


Many witch bottles have been found in old homes in England and the United States. One witch bottle that was discovered in England contained urine, hair and pins and had been buried upside down. Another witch bottle found in Newark contained hair, nails and urine. Witch bottles could be hidden in the walls, buried beneath the home, or around one’s fireplace. Bottles could also be located near doors or windows since that’s a way other witches or evil spirits could get in.

Now, if you ever walk into someone’s home and you notice a lovely bottle, colored so that you really can’t make out its contents and it’s positioned by the door, well then…you better be nice to that person, because you never know who is a witch.





31 Days of Halloween – Day 20 The Death of the Conspiracy Theorist

This one is a bit strange, even for us, but we decided to write about it since some of our followers are intrigued by UFO’s and conspiracy theories. All of the detail we will cover has been published in the below articles for your review.


There is a growing segment of the population that believe that events around us are controlled by a group or groups of people. These beliefs stretch on into varying levels of life; economy, politics and so on. While some people brush away the words ‘conspiracy theory,’ thinking that any such belief is unreal there are some people who stand by ideas that not everything is what its seems.


Max Spiers was a 39-year-old conspiracy theorist from Canterbury, England with a large following. He also spoke at conferences about the subject matter. In June, Spiers was in Poland where he was scheduled to give a talk about his varying conspiracy theories, including UFOs. During his time there, he contacted his mother and told her that if anything were to happen to him that she should investigate it. Spiers had been staying with a woman, sleeping on her sofa and it was there on the sofa that he proceeded to vomit and spew a black liquid until he died. His death has been ruled due to natural causes, even though no paper work has been provided to his mother. Spiers’ mother, his former fiancé and his followers are challenging those findings.


Those that knew Spiers believe it was his research into UFOs, government cover-ups, and investigating people in politics, business and entertainment that got him killed.

So what was Spiers researching before he died? He believed that black magic is at the core of what runs this world.


Some of the conspiracy theories Spiers believed in include:

  • Black magic is at the root of the control of mankind
  • Mind control
  • Fourth Reich
  • New World Order
  • UFO Cover-up
  • Shapeshifters live among us
  • Entire underground cities exist beneath the surface

And more…


Did Spiers die of an alien virus, as some other conspiracy theorists believe? Was he getting too close to something? Or, did he really die of natural causes?











31 Days of Halloween – Day 19 WANTED: Exorcists


Apparently there is a shortage of exorcists. In an article published in The Telegraph in September 2016 exorcists are in urgent demand.


According to Valter Cascioli, a psychologist with the International Association of Exorcists (Yes, there is a thing) a lack of priests to perform exorcism is an emergency. Dr. Cascioli also teaches at the Pontifical University of Regina Apostolorum, a Vatican supported university in Rome. Cascioli attributed the increase of possession to people’s increase in the practice of the occult and satanic practices. He also attributed the rise of evil forces to people’s decline in faith. He was also clear to point out that it was important not to confuse mental illness with demonic possession.


Two of America’s leading exorcists, Father Gary Thomas and Father Vincent Lampert agree that there is a rise of demonic possession and a need for exorcists. Both claim pagan activities, declining mental health facilities, and a spiritual void in America is contributing to people being possessed. Father Thomas has conducted about 60 exorcisms in about 10 years.


In Rome, Father Vincenzo Taraborelli says he sees about 30 people a day. Father Taraborelli is also 79 years old and says that there is little success finding new exorcists.


“I told the bishop that I can’t find anyone willing to do this. Many of them are scared. Even priests can be scared. It’s a difficult life.”

31 Days of Halloween – Day 17 The Exorcism of Emily Rose



The 2005 film             The Exorcism of Emily Rose was loosely based on the real life exorcisms of Anneliese Michel.


Michel was a young German woman who underwent a series of Catholic exorcisms. Because of Hollywood, when most people think of the Catholic rite of exorcism they think of one event culminating with the expulsion of an evil spirit. This is not the case. Exorcism is usually a multiple series of rites.


Michel was born to a Catholic family in Leiblfing, Bavaria in West Germany. Her parents Josef and Anna also had 3 other daughters. Michel was known to be very religious, regularly attending mass. When Michel was 16 she had a convulsion and was soon after diagnosed with lobe epilepsy. She would suffer seizures and was eventually instituted in a psychiatric hospital.


While hospitalized, Michel was prescribed a series of medications including those to treat psychosis and schizophrenia, anti-seizure, mood stabilizers and anti-psychotic drugs. Michel complained about seeing devil-faces and hallucinated while praying. Her health continued to decline, and she became intolerant of religious objects, including crucifixes.


Michel went on a pilgrimage to a non-Catholic sanctioned holy site with a family friend to San Damiano. There she refused to walk past religious objects and drink the blessed water. It was at this time that her family concluded that her illness was actually demonic possession.


Father Ernst Alt was contacted by Michel’s family and upon inspecting her he claimed that he believed she was possessed. He petitioned his local bishop to allow an exorcism. In September of 1975, Bishop Josef Stangl gave permission for Ernst to proceed with the exorcism. Ernst enlisted the help of Father Arnold Renz.


Between 1975 and 1976 Ernst conducted 67 exorcisms on Michel, one to two exorcisms per week lasting hours. During this time her family had ceased all medical treatment. Michel talked about dying, and that her death would atone for wayward youth and apostate priests. She had also stopped eating and her knees had broken due to her continuous genuflections.



Michel died in her home on July 1, 1976. Her autopsy reported her death being due to malnutrition.


Michel’s parents, Renz and Ernst were charged with neglect. Their trial began in March 30, 1978 and drew considerable interest. Tapes of the exorcism were played in which the priests claimed were demonic voices coming from Michel identifying themselves as Lucifer, Cain, Judas, Iscariot, Hitler and Nero. The priests went on to say that they believed Michel’s soul was saved just before her death. They were found guilty of manslaughter and were sentenced to six months in jail, later suspended to three years’ probation.
Her parents later had her body exhumed, claiming that they wanted to rebury her in an oak coffin as the original one was made of cheap material. The priests were not allowed to see her body but a nun claimed to have a vision that Michel’s body was still intact. The body was reburied in an oak coffin lined with tin.


In 1984 a petition was submitted to the Vatican and the decision was made that Michel was not possessed but rather suffered from mental illness.
