Skye inherited an unbelievable collection---unbelievable both in size and variety---of items when the time came for her mother to cross over. Over the years, we added to that collection. We have bought pieces wherever our travels took us, some were given to us as gifts every now and then, and some we were fortunate enough to find. (Yes, there really is such a thing as good---and bad---karma!)
Some came from far-away lands, and some from estate sales here in the U.S. All possessed unique and strange qualities. Many are haunted with the spirits of long-gone mortals. Many others were handed down from other witches. Some were from Skye's own childhood. And others were infused with the power or spirit of what we typically call a mythical being or creature.
They ALL possess unending Magick!
We believe in haunted woods and forests. And we know spirits inhabit all sorts of things, like rings and other jewelry, vases, bottles, old figurines---pretty much anything and everything. This is why we love to collect all sorts of vessels, and anything else having to do with the paranormal. We believe that spirits inhabit things that they once used or were attached to in their undead years.
We witches have the power to remove a spirit from a vessel and move it to another by special rituals performed at the exact right time. There are good spirits as well as bad spirits. The good spirits actually do love to please you and make you happy. They are sometimes fun and mischievious, and there are some that will be encountered that are still grieving over their own lost life.
However, if you have a haunted spirit in your life you are truly blessed with the power of Magick. All kinds of so-called mythical beings and creatures have spirits. It isn't restricted only to humans who have passed on through the mist beyond life. Powers are usually exerted by gods and goddesses, djinns, angels, demons, faeries, feys, witches, and warlocks. Even mythical creatures like unicorns, serpents, dragons, flying horses, centaurs, harpies, banshees, trolls, leprechauns, gnomes, mermaids, sea horses, and sea dragons. All cultures have their share of this phenomenon...Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Irish, Spanish, Celtic, Pagan, Norse, Hindu, Japanese, Chinese...ALL cultures.
You can actually cast a spell on something yourself. We mortals often will cast a good spell on something we love. It enhances the powers of the object. We are also masters at transferring powers from one object to another, moving spirits to a newer vessel.
Why would we do this? Because a lot of people sometimes break or damage a vessel or, as sometimes happens, a favorite vessel will become so old and delicate that it crumbles, and on occasion a vessel just gets lost. We can reach through the veils of time and space to contact an old spirit or power and send it to a new vessel.
We have had some collectors who value a spirit or power, but have no desire to either wear or have an old piece of jewelry or an old, cracked vase displayed in their home. They prefer a new, more modern and crisp, shiny object. There's no harm in this. It's a simple matter of "To each his (or her) own".
Others are intrigued by the ancient and marked-by-time features. Some people have possession of a power or spirit and are afraid of it. They prefer to have it removed, and we do that. Binding the power or spirit to a new home is not unheard of. There is such a thing as bad and/or evil spells, so always remember that whatever you desire and wish for can pass into your karma and harm you. The witch's motto is "Harm none. So mote it be".
Magick works, and when you align your power with the universe you can lead a life of your dreams. Magick works as a force of nature. It holds all the power of our universe. Magick combined with your own desires can make you wealthy, can send you the love of your life, and give you happiness in all areas of your life.
So remember---when you purchase an item from us there is always a story attached to it, and when you BELIEVE, you can be tranported to a world of Magick and power surpassing anything you have ever been able to imagine.
Remember also---the Magick will happen. Maybe not instantly, but when you are truly ready for it. Magick works like magick will. It can happen quickly, or slowly.
In our 41 years together Skye and I found that the more we learned, the less we ended up knowing. We would walk through one doorway of information and knowledge, only to encounter a curtain of mist hiding ten more doorways. To be given all the opportunities to glimpse into it,
sometimes just for a short time, gave us a joy for living.
Skye and I both loved our vagabond lifestyle. It nurtured us. It sustained us. It fed our souls. But---alas---time steals even a witch's youth. When Skye's health began to show those unmistakable signs of deteriorating, the time was at hand for us to realize that it was time for our vagabond days to end.
It was time for us to find that place to settle down. And in January, 2011 we returned to the Houston-Galveston, Texas area. Galveston Island was always a special place for both of us. We visited there numerous times over the years when we needed to re-charge. Galveston was always our source for that certain, special kind of energy we needed.
The reason for it becoming necessary to settle down was that Skye's body was beginning its process of dying. That was a fact of life that we both understood that we had to accept and come to terms with. We couldn't look into the future and see just when Skye's physical time on Earth would end. Even if we had been able to, we probably would have preferred not to know. Instead of allowing any of this to make us angry and keep us unhappy and melancholy, we preferred to wake up each morning and find a way to make each day special.
Skye's mother had told Skye numerous times over the years that being the matriarch of the Morganthall coven carried with it some pretty profound responsibilities. One topic pertains to Skye's vast collection of empowered jewelry. You see, spirits are extremely intuitive. Once it should ever become certain to a spirit that his/her keeper has abandoned them, they will simply and quickly and permanently vacate the vessel they have been occupying. Even if it's because the keeper died, crossed over, and became a spirit himself or herself. So, when we settled down here in the Galveston area, we realized that the time had come for us to find new homes for Skye's Magickal belongings. To share them with others who want and need this awesome, special Magick to bless their lives as it has our own.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer refunds or guarantees on any of our haunted and magickal objects. Nobody---not even the most powerful of witches---can actually guarantee that you will be blessed by an object.This is just not the same as being able to return a defective vacuum cleaner to Walmart.
This Magick is in you---how you believe---how you act---how you live your life! Just try to remember that no honest, reputable, legitimate spell caster could, should, or would even consider guaranteeing how you and a spirit might interact with each other. What we make available here at HauntedMagick.com is not a tangible thing. It is spiritual witchcraft and Magick. It is an ethereal spirit. You can't take it out and show it off. You can't touch it.
Magick is untouchable and unseen. It lives in your heart and mind. Our objects are haunted by the sacred power of the unknown. Skeptics will tell you that there is no such thing as time beyond the veil. There always has been and there always will be those "non-believers". Those that have never been touched and blessed by the powers. Only you will be able to know if and when you are ready to accept the Magick. If you aren't yet at that time in your life, then please don't purchase from us now.
Our lovely objects are the ultimate in unusual paranormal vessels. They are inhabited with the thrice-blessed power of a great witch's clan. The moon worshippers of Diana, the all-powerful Morganthalls, and the spirits themselves are all contained inside each piece. You can feel the secondary lingering around the object of one or more of the Morganthalls.
At HauntedMagick.com we are proud to offer a diverse selection of occult and spiritual jewelry. Whether you're a beginner just starting your journey or an experienced collector, there is something here for you. It is not a prerequisite that you are Wiccan or that you have previous occult experience or knowledge. Every journey begins with the first step.
Our special jewelry creations have been skillfully crafted and the spirits summoned under each one's applicable and appropriate lunar phase. What we offer here should not be taken lightly, but it instead should always be looked upon with commitment, an open mind, and with respect. Our work is guided by the ethical rulings of the Wiccan Rede, as well as by the laws of our univere. We are determined to practice our craft with honesty and integrity, and to pass the positive energy this generates on to you, as it is infused into all the awesome pieces purchased from our haunted shop.
NOTE: The following was written by Skye about her Mother after we had made the move and were settled in here in the Galveston area (we actually reside in a suburb of Houston---just a quick 15 minute drive down to the Island). All the following is included, unchanged and unedited. Entirely as Skye put it to paper.
ABOUT MY MOTHER...
ADELIA BELLE BRANDENBURG-
Some years ago I inherited an exquisitely beautiful collection of jewelry. This collection belonged to my mother, Adelia Belle Brandenburg-Morganthall, the famous witch of the Morganthall clan and the wife of Drake Morganthall. Mother lived to the grand age of 94, and was then taken from us in an automobile accident. She was not wearing any of her jewelry at the time of the accident.
My family was and still is a clan of practicing witches. Most of my ancestors were serious, hard working practitioners of good Magick, and in their travels and during their lifetimes they accumulated fortunes of all kinds. Each family member has had a life of untold riches, happy loves, and were blessed with long and healthy lives.
To say that Delia (mother) was always just a little different would be a gross understatement. Back in her day she was what people then called a "wild one", but we today would call her a "free spirit". Mother did dance naked under the moon, and she was friends with Sally Rand and Mae West. She loved and treasured everything about life and being a witch, even though in her day being a witch wasn't only frowned upon. It was also considered very wicked in the eyes of society.
Born in Wales, mother was descended from the first female witch mentioned in Welsh folklore, Ceridwen. Ceridwen was a sorceress, and was supposed to have given birth to Taliesin, who she placed in a reed basket and set adrift down the River Dovey. The child was found by Prince Elphin, who adopted him.
Mother was widowed eight times. Her only child (me) was with Drake Morganthhall, the last love of her life. During her long and diverse lifetime mother was a Duchess, a Countess, a judge's wife, as well as the wife of a hotel magnate. And interspersed amongst all that, mother also had numerous affairs with movie stars back in the 1930's, 40's, and 50's.
Mother once owned several nightclubs and supper clubs, where patrons gambled in the back rooms. At that time she was married to a crime king. Many movie stars from the 50's---the likes of Rhonda Fleming, Arlene Dahl, and Lex Barker (Tarzan) frequently visited one or the other of mother's supper clubs.
Mother was a flapper, a dancer, and a singer. But witchcraft was her passion. Her secondary passion was collecting various powerful amulets, talismans, and other types of beautiful jewelry which she wore and treasured, and---I might add---kept in pristine condition. Hands down, rings were always mother's favorites.
Adelia Belle (as she insisted on being called by all that knew her casually) had many more pieces in her vast collection, but all of the items being offered by us were treasured by mother over all the rest because of the terrifically powerful spirits invoked into each one. Some came to her with their Magick already contained within them. Others she cast spells into herself.
