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.

Just Another Hollywood Himbo

Posted in Humor, Pop Culture with tags , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2013 by Marie Bargas

When one of my best girlfriends returned from out of state last week she was seriously on the rebound from an ex-model who broke her heart into a thousand little pieces.  Poor thing. On the upside this gorgeous California blonde is a promising actress with a knock-out figure who is never short of male attention. When we went out to dinner last week she was excited to introduce me to her new male “assistant” and anxious to see if I agreed that he was “cute as a button.”  I guess I would have thought he was cute, if he hadn’t smelled like he had crawled out of a beer barrel. This 21 year old kid professed to be a “scientist” without a college degree, but believe me he was no Albert Einstein. And he wasn’t even THAT cute. His eyes were too far apart and the suit he was so proud of looked like it originated at Mervyn’s before he picked it up at the local thrift shop.  All I could do was remind myself that she had just had a break-up and in a few days she would come back to herself and realize that this kid may have been a fun accessory in the short term, but a glaring liability in the long term. I found out later that he attended a red carpet even with her and was falling down drunk. Yikes!

I have to admit that the one thing that really turned me off was that he openly refused to pay for anything at dinner. The silly boy made the announcement abruptly in front of a dinner party that included a reputable TV producer, two working actresses and Moi… the Hollywood Witch. I guess he thought that we would cover his bill because he was “special.” Needless to say, he failed Charm 101, but not before we caught him rifling through her purse to pay for another drink that he ordered after the bill was closed. That incident prompted me to text her to cancel her credit cards immediately and dump him because he was obviously a HIMBO. But, she didn’t know what that meant, so I have decided to clarify that term today, even though she fired the little Himbo yesterday and never looked back.

Him + Bimbo = Himbo



Get it?  Back in the day I suppose that a typical gigolo could be defined as a “Himbo,” but after the O.J. Simpson trial one man has come to embody the stereotype so completely that it has been had to knock him off the Himbo throne.  According to Wikipedia Brian Jerard “Kato” Kaelin (born March 9, 1959)[2] is an American radio and television personality who gained fame as a witness during the 1994–95 murder trial of O. J. Simpson. Brian Jerard “Kato” Kaelin (born March 9, 1959)[2] is an American radio and television personality who gained fame as a witness during the 1994–95 murder trial of O. J. Simpson.”

The Truth About Angels – 8/17 Update Psychic Protection for Paranormal Investigators

Posted in Angels, ghosthunt, Ghosts, haunting, mariebargas, NationalGhostHuntingDay2017, Pagan, Paranormal, Pop Culture, PsychicProtection, Spirituality, thehollywoodwitch with tags , , , on April 29, 2013 by Marie Bargas

Since I’ve been consulting for the Horsefly Chronicles in Easton, PA, I’ve met some wonderful people in the Paranormal Community.  A lot of them are psychics that help paranormal teams deal with unruly spirits. What I have discovered is that a lot of these psychics are untrained in psychic protection and their suffering is taken for granted as “part of the job.”  More recently, in working with National Ghost Hunting Day, I have been approached to give advice on “Psychic Protection for Paranormal Investigators.” 

Since everyone has a Guardian Angel, sometimes up to 3 Angels, then of course the first step in securing and maintaining angelic protection is creating a relationship with your own personal angelic guardians. I’d also like to dispel some of the misunderstandings connected to Angels and Witches. Witches work with Angels all the time for protection and invocation. The prejudice against earth based religions, goddess worship and practical magic is crutch for many in the paranormal world. The supernatural can and should be a vehicle for bringing people together in unity and understanding.

From my original blog posted in 2016.
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.

This is an essential prayer for any Paranormal Investigator. It should be said every day … before and after each investigation. I am posting the Latin Version as the preferred version because angels seem to resonate with Latin in my experience.  

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

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.

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