1st of October 2020
Greetings Castle Dwellers,
October is a month filled with mystery, intrigue and the paranormal.
ALL HALLOWS’ EVE
The month of October is a time that many give honor to the dead. It is believed that on the 31st of October, the veil between the world of the living and world of the dead is thin enough for spirits to come through.
The practices of celebrating Halloween range from a quiet night at home, to carnivals and elaborate costume parties in celebration of All Hallows’ Eve. Children dress up in their costumes of witches, ghosts, vampires, and goblins.
It is believed the masks and carved pumpkins would ward off the evil spirits when they passed through the veil. The veil cannot be seen, it is invisible to the naked eye. There those that can see the spirits from the world of the dead. Some go to the cemetary hoping to witness this phenomena take place.
All due respect to the dearly departed of loved ones.

People would use a plant called Wolf’s bane around their homes, and on them when travel by night was necessary during the time of a full moon. It was believed Wolf’s bane had the power to ward off the beast.
A WITCHES WORLD
The magick of witchcraft, not to be confused with the magic of someone who performs tricks on stage or at a child’s birthday party.
The witch costumes’ design represents the craft. To the wearer signs and symbols are of great importance and meaning like baby name meanings. The wearer cares for the symbol as a mother cares for the child, and the child is a representation of the meaning to their name.
Witches are believed to be magickal and mystical. The female witch is referred to as a sorceress. Male witches are warlocks, wizards and sorcerers. Magick and the law of attraction have similarities, however, magick is more detailed and has a much wider range of variance. One of the the most well-known of the most powerful of practioners being the famed and legendary Madame Marie LaVeau.
It is believed that over a century after Madame LaVeau left this life she still grants the petition of believers. The magick of believing is very powerful to believers. After 139 years of her death, it is still believed by many Madame LeVeau has great power and influence. The believe quote sayings are endless. Are you a believer? What is it that you believe?
There are different types of witches and many ways to practice the craft. Some are known as witches by their own admission and others choose to practice in secrecy. While there are witches in covens there is also the solitaire witch. Do you know of a witch personally?
Some like to visit the graveyard on All Hallows Eve in hopes of sighting spirits that have slipped through the veil.
All due respect to the dearly departed of loved ones.
