Just In Time For Halloween – The Use of Pumpkin Spice In Magic Ritual

The Magic of Pumpkin Spice
A Magical Guide to a Delicious Treat! 

By Michael Vachmiel 

September 10, 2018 

We all love it!  We “can’t even” without out!  Pumpkin Spice has become ingrained in the subconscious of those addicted to its deliciously sweet and spicy siren’s call!  

So when we are on our second or third cup of the sweet stuff keep in mind that all the ingredients that make Pumpkin Spice have magical and even some great health properties! 

Before going forward, this is not a substitute for medical advice!  

What is Pumpkin Spice? 

Pumpkin Spice is composed of server different spices. 

The most common blend of spices are: 


The uses of each spice are as follows: 

The Uses of Cinnamon 

The element of cinnamon is fire.   The chakra that cinnamon stimulates is the Sacral chakra, or Swadhisthana.  Magically cinnamon is used as fire and all that it represents.   As an oil it can be used to purify an object.  As incense, it can be used to attract sexual energy and wealth.     For the healing arts, cinnamon has been known to ease digestive issues. 

The Uses of Ginger

The element of ginger is Fire.  The chakra that ginger stimulates solar plexus chakra or Manipura.   Magically ginger is used as “speed things up” to hasted energy and spells to a quick resolution.   
In the healing arts, ginger has been known to act as an immunity booster, digestive aid, and anti-inflammatory. 


The Uses of Nutmeg 

The element of nutmeg is Air.   It is associated with good fortune in travel, attracting lovers, and attracting money.  Because of its sensual properties, it stimulated the root chakra, or Muladhara. 

The uses of Allspice

The element of allspice is Fire.   Allspice is associated with Mars and sexual energy on all levels.   It helps heal feelings of shame and guilt. It is an energy booster on all levels!   Allspice is used in the healing arts as a digestive aid.   The chakra that Allspice stimulates is the Sacral chakra, or Swadhisthana.


The uses of Clove 

The element of cloves is Fire.  Clove is magically used to attract and keep friends, to attract money, to heighten sexuality,  and bring good fortune in business.      Clove stimulates  the root chakra, or Muladhara. 

How does Pumpkin Spice blend help vampires? 

As vampires, we draw in Qi, or energy, from the root chakra, the Muladhara.   How we feel about the energy is based on the health of our second chakra Sacral chakra, or Swadhisthana.   We hold energy in the third chakra, the  solar plexus chakra or Manipura.     The unique blend of spices purifies and amplifies the energy we take in and well as changes the vibration of the energy to be more attractive to our current or potential swans.    In dealing with the endless politics of our society, it creates favorable vibrations to our energy.   
As magical practitioners, it quickens the results of our actions to a successful resolution. 

In summary, the unique blend of spices  in Pumpkin Spice is one that no one “can’t even” be without!

Stone Magic. The easy way to change the energy of your space.

Using Stones to Work Your Will. 

Clockwise – Green Opal, Sunstone (rough), Honey Calcite, and Zeusite


No matter what you call it, energy, Qi, Prana, Quantum, and endless other names, many simply define it as magic, or will working.   Magic can take many forms.  For some it is meditation to change and clear your mind.  Magic for others may mean  candles with their scents, colors, and flames, creating an altered state of conscience allowing the inner voice to be heard.    The list of magical tools is endless as the Arts, Theories, and Practices of spirituality of this world we live in. 

For myself, I like stones.   I love their feel.  I love the sensation of holding a stone or crystal in my hands.  I love to attune with their energies.  I enjoy closing off all other sensations and meditating with stones to feel the waves of energy.

My latest journey with stone have brought some new friends into my reality. 

Green Opal –  This lovely is associated with bodily healing.  Need help with diet and exercise?  This is your buddy.   Need help with getting your base root chakra to help with energy flow?  Need help with positive mental energy?  Need help with strengthening your personal will?    This gift will help you in these goals.    

Oh, not bad at helping you with finances either!   

Sunstone – Work with chakras and need some help, this friend will do it the trick!  Sunstone is an energy source and a remover of spiritual blocks.  Feeling sluggish?    This gift will help with vitality! 

Honey Calcite – Need some strength to the Root Chakra?  Need to be a little more dominant, more decisive?   This is the friend for you! 

Zeusite – a form of blue chalcedony, this mighty friend is about power, dominance, control, divine authority.   If you need people to agree with you and see things your way, this is a wonderful friend to have. 

What is a Vampire?

What is a Vampire? 


Hello everyone.

As someone who writes and lectures on vampirism I am often asked, what is a vampire. A vampire, in short, is a being that requires a specific type of energy to maintain wellness. Many other vampires take issues with such a lax definition, but I believe that is from a a lack off medical, spiritual, and social education.

ALL BEINGS take in and give out energy. The human body is a bio electrical machine. This is a scientific fact. We give out energy from conception and it ends only in physical death, From being to end, life is an exchange of energies among all its biological processes.

On a spiritual level, energy is exchanged. From Prayer, to Spellcraft, Hoodoo, Voodoo, Wicca, Reiki, paganism in its many forms and so on.

The simple taking in of energy can not be the sole definition of a vampire because that would mean every being,every animal, every biological organism would be a vampire. We know this not to be the case.

So what makes a vampire a vampire?

Vampire need a specific type of energy to maintain health that can not be acquired through normal biological or spiritual processes. Vampires need this specific type of energy to maintain wellness. Without regular consumption of this energy, a vampire will suffer mental and physical imbalances.

Just my humble observation after a few decades of study.

Vampire Society – a better way of uniting the real vampire community.

Can the Vampire Community be united and still allow for individuality?   Quite so!  Welcome to the Vampire Society. 


The Vampire Society is the brain child of the Imperator of the Vampire Court of Houston, Michael Vachmiel.   Vachmiel, or Vach, seeing the bullying and trolling culture that was plaguing the global vampire community decided to take his professional management skills and apply it to the world of the vampire.   

A New Veil?


Vachmiel has crafted a new set of social rules for the modern real vampire that are the guiding principles of the Vampire Society. 

No trolling
No bullying 
No sexual harassment
No discrimination based on sex, religion, sexual orientation or sexual expression so long it is among consenting adults. 
Black Swans and Vampires are equal in the eyes of the Society. 
There is no one truth path to being a real vampire.  
Respect the right of other Courts, Houses, Orders, Covens and the like to self govern, so long as they do not abuse their members. 

How does the Vampire Society Work?


The Vampire Society is an alliance of Courts, Covens, Houses, Orders, Independents, and Ronin who want fellowship, safety in the strength of numbers,  and enjoy being part of a larger whole, BUT STILL WANT TO SELF GOVERN AND NOT BE LORDED OVER!   That is the difference between the Vampire Society and others!  You carry your flag first!   

How much does it cost to be part of the Vampire Society? 



Michael Vachmiel calls himself Imperator?   Is he the “Emperor” of Vampires in the Society? 


No.  Vach’s title, like all vampire titles, are honorifics within their own domains.   Vach’s role within the VS is to help promote the society, bring new members in,  help create fun activities, educational articles, mediate disputes between members, and keep the organization flowing smoothly. 

Who is in the Vampire Society Now?

How to handle people with Felonies in the Vampire Community

How to handle people with Felonies in the Vampire Community

A look at the difference between crimes of violence and drug offenses on 420. 

Since people seam to be talking about felony records and social acceptance, lets get into it then. I have no problem with people who have been convicted for drug offences.

It is my belief that drug laws need a massive overhaul and they are racists and classists! 

What I have a problem with are those crimes involving children and sexual assault.
They are just about the only reason I wont let you in the group or groups that I help run. There is just to big of a liability issues.
All that being said, drugs ARE ILLEGAL.
What you do in your own home, that is on you.
When your habits bring police attention upon the community, then we are gonna have an issue.
Drug use is a personal choice.   Abuse and assault is about harming others. 
This should all be petty common sense.
