Take back your power and control your own destiny




I had an epiphany this morning. Whether you call it Wiccan, Paganism, or fail to label yourself, magic and our connection to the Goddesses, Gods, or the Divine as you know it has always been about taking care of ourselves and our loved ones. In the past, they cast spells and did rituals to have a successful hunt, to grow the crops and to protect themselves from enemies. Over the centuries that changed. It became selfish to ask for what you need and want. This was and continues to be bullshit. Christianity stole and corrupted our holidays as a way to convert people. But they also planted the seeds of guilt as a way to also steal our power. Do what ye will but harm none was never about denying ourselves, but in fact, it empowers us to reach for what we need with the expectation that all things are possible if we chose to believe. The harm none only applies when we deliberately ask for the harm of ourselves or another. It is asking for such specifics that we target a specific person or outcome that we eliminate all other possibilities. It is asking for a specific job at a specific place instead of listing the qualities of the job you want. It's saying give me the manager job at XYZ Company, instead of asking for a manager job that pays $100,000.00 a year, at a place where I can make a difference, are respected and can respect others, etc. Details do matter. This especially applies to love spells, which why most of them are black magic. If you ask for a specific person you usurps their free will and deny yourself the real love you deserve. Think about it, could you really trust a love that you controlled and forced to happen?

It's time to take back our power and our magic. Release the guilt. Ask for what you need and want with an open hand and heart. Expect it to be provided. Along the way bless others for their best and highest good. It's how we can help each other without interfering with free will.











Imprisoned in her family's home, the spirit of a murdered child waits for her parents to free her. But they have reincarnated as has her killer. Randi must bring them back together so that they can forgive themselves and make amends. If she succeeds, they will all heal and she will be freed to also reincarnate. If she fails, their need for revenge will damn them all.

Preaching the Three E's - Educate. Entertain. Empower
















Three Time Best Selling Author/Medium Out In Full Force With “Rebel Witch: A Memoir”


(April 23, 2019) There seems to be no stopping this firecracker, Vanessa Hogle. Three-time Best selling author, with her books in the top 100 Amazon in three genres (paranormal, travel, self-help), is one gal you should know! What makes this unstoppable force stand out is the fact that she did not pursue any speaking engagements or interviews; all her appearances have been from those folks who have found and sought her out.







Rebel Witch: a Memoir, Vanessa's 4th book release is May 31, 2019, and covers in layman's terms, tarot, magic, investigations, psychic sensitivity and many other pertinent topics. Hogle explains each in detail, with personal experiences, so that the reader can find, believe in and utilize their own personal power. Hogle says, “My goal is to educate, entertain and empower.”



Vanessa is doing just that, and by preaching the three E's is sharing her story, getting her message out there. In addition, Hogle has consulted with law enforcement on previous missing person cases continues 'remote viewing' for different organizations and home investigations.










Past works include Soulscapes (April 2015), Giving Up the Ghost (August 2015), Walking With Ghosts (2017). In addition, Hogle is featured in 5 other books.







Giving Up the Ghost reached the top 100 Amazon bestsellers in ghost and hauntings, channeling and self-help.









Walking With Ghosts reached the top 100 Amazon bestsellers in paranormal, adventure and travel.


Three books spending multiple weeks in the top ten on Amazon

In the last 4 years consulted for or investigated over 300 cases worldwide

In the last 2 years sold over 400 personal creations and commissioned pieces to include hand sculpted jewelry, free-standing sculptures, and paintings

Consulted on “Leave It or Die” episode on Animal Planet's show “The Haunted”

Hogle has done this all while being a single mom working full-time as a dental assistant! Currently holding down 2 jobs, and gearing up for filming her documentary Hidden Gems this summer, Vanessa is one busy and tenacious gal. What one may not know or be aware of is that Vanessa had endured numerous hardships that would have caused many to lose hope: a high school dropout who went back to night school at the age of 21; a rape survivor and survivor of a brutal assault by a stranger; was homeless for two months living out of her car; had six miscarriages and has one living child, and endured emotional and physical abuse in relationships after her divorce. Vanessa truly believes all of this happened for a reason, and that reason was to make her the person she is today hellbent on making other people see their worth.

Not only have her books spent many weeks in Amazon top 10 in those genres, but to date, Hogle has also become quite a YouTube personality. She has appeared on many media platforms like Blogtalk radio, multiple podcasts, and YouTube with shows such as Beyond The Strange, Miami Ghost Chronicles, Stories of the Supernatural, multiple appearances on Spaced Out Radio, Necromancer Live, Paranormal Collaboration, Paranormal King, multiple appearances on Paranormal Connection Radio, Our Paranormal Stories and extensive appearances on Paranormal Zone TV. See attached for an extensive list.

Her books are published by Mike Ricksecker of Haunted Road Media, and Hogle also appears as co-host with Ricksecker on Edge of The Rabbit Hole, a weekly podcast live stream interactively researching and uncovering supernatural secrets and lost knowledge from throughout the ages, covering a wide range of locations and topics, all supernatural, paranormal, and historic in nature.

Springfield Mayor Langfelder To Introduce Bill Clutter:
Author/Co-Founder Illinois Innocence Project at Book Signing April 8, 2019


(March 2019, Springfield, IL) Former Springfield Alderman Bill Clutter will be holding a book signing event at the Lincoln Public Library Monday, April 8th 326 S. Seventh street from 6pm-8 pm being hosted by Friends of Lincoln Library. Mayor Langfelder will be there in attendance to introduce Mr. Clutter, who served as Ward 1 Alderman from 1987-1991 under Mayor Ossie Langfelder.




Clutter, a private investigator, has penned an in-depth account of his investigation of a rare childhood cancer epidemic that occurred in Taylorville, Illinois after that community was exposed to coal tar by Central Illinois Public Service Company (CIPS) during a 1987 clean-up of hazardous waste.  His work on the CIPS case led to what became an important Illinois Supreme Court precedent that changed the way utility companies cleaned up abandoned coal tar sites in Illinois, requiring more protective cleanup standards. 


Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites operated in nearly every city of the state before natural gas was discovered.   These facilities converted coal into gas.  Coal tar was a hazardous waste by-product of that process that contaminated the environment.


Clutter began his career by serving the Voting Rights Act lawsuit in 1984 on the City of Springfield.  The lawsuit was filed by leaders of the African-American community who alleged that the commission form of government, consisting of five commissioners who were elected city-wide, prevented Blacks from being represented on the city council.  After a federal judge ordered a new aldermanic government Clutter was elected to the city council in 1987, along with two African-Americans, Dr. Allan Woodson, and Frank McNeil, who was the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit.  Clutter will read from Chapter 4 “Democracy Comes to Abraham Lincoln’s Hometown,” which tells this history.


The book highlights the legal work of two local attorneys; Michael B. Metnick, who filed both the Voting Rights Act lawsuit and initiated the filing of a civil lawsuit against CIPS on behalf of the families whose children were afflicted with neuroblastoma; and civil trial lawyer Thomas F. Londrigan who took over the case and single-handily won a jury verdict against one of the largest law firms in the world, Jones Day, that now represents President Donald J. Trump in the Mueller investigation.

This book is also about more than that. This is also a history lesson, a story of a different form of cancer that eats away at democracy, neo-fascism that seeks to set afire the legacy of Abraham Lincoln,” said Clutter.


 “I want this book to be the Uncle Tom's Cabin of our generation,” said Clutter. The book includes the story of how the most famous inaugural address ever delivered by an American president originated in Springfield, IL.  The words John F. Kennedy’s delivered “. . . ask not what your country can do for you-- ask what you can do for your country,” was borrowed from a speech Ralph Bradley, founder of the Illinois Farm Union, delivered to his members.

“Though this story occurred over three decades ago, what happened to Taylorville, Illinois, should be a lesson for this generation.  We need to protect the children by protecting the environment,” said Clutter. 


Bill Clutter was one of the co-founders of the Downstate Innocence Project, now known as the Illinois Innocence Project (IIP). Clutter now resides in Louisville, KY where he continues to investigate death penalty cases.  In 2013, Clutter founded a national organization called Investigating Innocence, a non-profit organization that investigates cases of inmates who seek to prove their innocence.  For more about Investigating Innocence visit

Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit Investigating Innocence.
Coal Tar is available on Amazon, at Springfield's Prairie Archives, and soon at Springfield's Barnes and Noble. For more on the book

How to find the courage to face life's challenges





From childhood through the end of life, change is inevitable. How we choose to react will open or close doors. But not always in the ways we expect or want. Even when we chose to make the changes, the excitement intertwines with apprehension as we walk through the threshold into unknown. Some people we meet will help and support you. Some will challenge you. But each of them will play an important role in helping you learn and grow. Chose to have the courage to believe in yourself and the tomorrows as they appear before you. When you make that conscious choice, who and what you need will appear in your life to help you meet your challenges and achieve your dreams.


You are here at this perfect time and the perfect place for the perfect reason. When you listen to your heart and ignore your fears you will see the path before you and be able to understand the challenges in your life.
