Vanessa Hogle

Vanessa Hogle has been involved with the paranormal since she was a little girl, having her first spiritual visitation at two years old. This made for quite a difficult childhood so she blocked as much as she could from the age of thirteen till she was in her thirties, when she finally stepped out of the broom closet. Since then she has been a recurring guest on numerous radio and You Tube shows, has been a co-host on her own radio show, “Edge of the Rabbit Hole”, which is now a successful You Tube show, been published in six books, three of which are her own parabiographies and consulted on Animal Planets “The Haunted…Leave or Die” episode. She is a remote viewer with credits to teams all over the world as well as an “on site” investigator, when travel time allows it.

The Truth About Angels

Posted in Angels, Movies, Pagan, Pop Culture, Spirituality, Witchy Style with tags , , on April 29, 2013 by Marie Bargas

6deda039c616bca1e94a9f897b605118As I was leafing through the blogs today I decided to do a search on Angels because since I’ve been invoking the Holy Spirit there have been quite a lot of them around me.  I chanced upon a beautiful photo of the Queen of Angels and I was going to re-blog it. But then I saw the caption and stopped cold.  Underneath the photo was a prayer to end abortion.  Looking up at the tags it was clear that the blogger was Christian. Searching through some of the other blogs I noticed that most of the bloggers were Christian. I read bits and pieces of each blog and decided to post my own. Why?  Because it’s time somebody brought up the fact that Angels and working with Angels are not an exclusively Christian thing. Angels are present in Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and many other faiths throughout the world. Angels do not appear exclusively to Christians!  Angels do not support ALL Christian beliefs and when you get right down to it… the history of Angels goes far back before the dawn of Christianity.

“Some scholars say that the earliest religious representation of the angels dates back to the city of Ur, in the Euphrates Valley, c. 4000–2500 b.c.e.”(Ancient Angels)

Furthermore, let’s clear something up immediately. There are a lot of WITCHES who work regularly with Angels for healing and protection. This is not surprising since ANGELS ARE NOT BIGOTS even though some human beings portray them as such.  I invoke Archangel Michael everyday for protection. Some trolls have tried to insist that what I perceive as Angels are in fact “Devils” by default because I’m a Witch. So, let me make another thing perfectly clear. Witches don’t worship Satan! Satanists worship Satan. Sadly, the notion that witches make pacts with the Devil in order to become witches is a common plot point in fictional Hollywood movies and tv shows. I’m not even going to see LORDS OF SALEM, even though I love Rob Zombie, because the plot is insulting to me. But seriously, it’s time someone set the record straight. Angels are also called upon to create what is called the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, a popular ritual with roots in the Golden Dawn that is used to banish negative vibes.  The four Archangels – Raphael, Michael, Gabriel and Uriel are called upon to preside over the four quarters over flaming banishing pentagrams.  That’s right – Angels + Pentagrams. If you thought pentagrams immediately meant devil worship you were WRONG.  In my own daily practice I say a traditional Catholic Prayer to my own Guardian Angel in Latin.

ANGELE DEI,
qui custos es mei,
Me tibi commissum pietate superna;
(Hodie, Hac nocte) illumina, custodi, rege, et guberna.
Amen.

ANGEL OF GOD,
my guardian dear,
To whom his love commits me here;
Ever this (day, night) be at my side,
To light and guard, to rule and guide.
Amen.

Angele Dei, also known as the Prayer to One’s Guardian Angel, was in the past attributed to St. Anselm (c1033-1109)

So, before you go off half-cocked about Angels please do your research and keep in mind that Angels do not have the limitations of fear, prejudice and bigotry… but human beings sure do.  In fact if we took a lesson from the Angels we would respect all faiths, because THEY do.

The Accidental Invocation: Hello Holy Spirit

Posted in How to, Pagan with tags , , , , , , , on April 24, 2013 by Marie Bargas

Holy Spirit

For years I have shunned reconnecting with my Catholic roots, mainly because Catholicism was used in my family as an excuse or a justification for bigotry and abuse. I come from a 3rd world country that is predominantly misogynistic even though there have been at least two female presidents within the last decade. Go figure. So, while I have fond memories of deep prayer and meditation within convent walls for the two years I was exiled to the Philippines, I could not identify myself as a Catholic especially after I woke up from a 3 day coma with gifts that would have had me burned as a witch at Easter in my homeland. I’m not kidding.

If you think the good ole USA is misogynistic country imagine yourself in a world where the value of a female child is sometimes measured by her value as a breeder, beauty queen  and/or a prostitute in all social classes. And even though the strength of this island nation is anchored in all of the above and the emerging working class of educated women who are the hub of the highly underpaid and overworked masses, nothing much has changed.  If you’ve ever wondered why there is such a mass exodus from the Philippines, I assure you that is the reason.  I’m being blunt, but truthful.

Still, the lure of connecting with a power that is the third element in the supernal triangle was hard to resist. My “special gift” is that anything that I call will come. Angel, God, Demon, Dragon, Genii, Elemental or Shade… if I call it… it will come. This past week I’ve been feeling nostalgic because I’ve been under the weather, so I decided that I’d reach back into my past and invoke something comforting. In fact why not invoke “the Comforter?” It took me less than 5 minutes to find exactly what I needed to do just that.
