The Grim Discovery Of A Witch’s Ancient Burial…

On Halloween,  don’t forget the terrible fate of witches!



A grisly end: 800-year-old remains of witch discovered in Italian graveyard… with seven nails driven through her jaw
By NICK PISA (DailyMail)


These are the 800 year old remains of what archaeologists believe was a witch from the Middle Ages after seven nails were found driven through her jaw bone.


The grim discovery was made during a dig on what is thought to be a ‘witches graveyard’ after another woman’s skeleton was found surrounded by 17 dice – a game which women were forbidden from playing 800 years ago.


Experts say they believe the women are aged around 25 – 30 years old and were found buried in a simple shallow grave in the ground with no coffin or shroud.


The macabre remains were found during a dig close to the sea at Piombino near Lucca in Italy’s Tuscany region and the woman had seven nails through her jaw as well as another 13 nails surrounding her skeleton.


Archaeologist Alfonso Forgione, from L’Aquila University, who is leading the dig, is convinced that the women were suspected witches because of the circumstances in which they were buried.

How to Have an Out of Body Experience



OBEs, or Out of Body Experiences, are indeed, mysterious. Are they a function of our brain’s neurons? A mystical transformation? A result of otherworldly spirits guiding us to an experience of the other realms? A “near death”? A lucid dream? An astral projection or soul trip to inner space or outer space?


In the following piece from The Daily Grail, some enlightenment on the subject is offered. Enjoy!


How to Have an OBE


The following is a modified excerpt from Paul and Charla Devereux’s book Lucid Dreaming: Accessing Your Inner Virtual Realities (Daily Grail Publishing, 2011).



The techniques used for inducing out-of-body experiences (OBEs) are essentially similar to lucid dream inductions, but with a different emphasis. The power of place (spatial programming) takes on special importance, and ways of developing a dual awareness can be helpful. Most OBE practitioners agree that when inducing the experience, physical relaxation is most important. A state of relaxed alertness is the ideal to be sought.


There seems to be no special dietary advice for OBE induction, though pioneering ‘astral projector’ Sylvan Muldoon recommended fasting and a reduction in the taking of liquids on days when induction is being attempted. On the other hand, dream researcher Patricia Garfield found that she had her strongest (and most frightening) OBE when she had been “inordinately stuffed with food”! As far as posture is concerned, there are likewise no universal rules. Muldoon felt that sleeping on one’s back was best, and failing that, the right side. Garfield felt that lying on one’s back or left side best facilitated OBEs. Robert Monroe, one of the most prominent OBE proponents of the last half century, said that the aspiring OBE practitioner should lie with his or her head towards the north, but Garfield argued that it made no difference what direction one slept in. Perhaps the only golden rule is to simply experiment! You have to find what works for you…
