When decorating for Fall, I've always loved decorating the fireplace the most!
The mantel is such a perfect place to display the brilliant colors of the season with brightly colored garlands of leaves, adding ribbon to the mix along with pine cones, acorns, nuts and berries.
It reflects the season, the gorgeous turning of the leaves and brings the look and feel of nature inside. This is especially important to do when living in a place where the natural look of Fall is not immediately apparent outside, due to lack of trees in the city or when living in an area that doesn't reflect the four seasons, such as a sub-tropical environment. The brilliant use of color with the oranges, reds and yellows help welcome us into the mood of the season.
Here's a picture from my library many years ago when I created a Fall scape like this on my fireplace mantel. I had a gorgeous fireplace in this home and it was a joy to decorate it.
Fireplaces are one of the most gorgeous accents one can...

Happy Halloween! I may have more than my share of Halloween decor, but if you haven't noticed I love all of the holidays, especially decorating for each one. And some holiday decor is so special, that I love to feature it in little video clips like the one above here with my Spirits of New Orleans and Ghosthunting North Carolina books. The projector in this video is from Grandin Road.

Ever wonder why witch hats are so pointy? There must be a point to it right?

Once again my dear friends, as your travel guide to the other side and all things mystical, it's time to delve deeper into the meaning of these icons of Halloween.
Back in ancient times and up through the late Middle Ages, women of nobility wore pointed hats. Queens and princesses wore them, aristocratic noble wealthy women wore them. They were symbols of power and prestige. Later in the 19th century, Queen Isabella of Spain brought back the fashion of wearing a very tall hat with the veils and interestingly enough, I write about Queen Isabella in my Spirits of New Orleans book, as she gave magical iron gates to two sisters who lived in New Orleans who were female entrepreneurs running a business.

Hmmm, so here's another reference to magical energy in iron as I...
Ever wonder why cauldrons are featured so prominently during Halloween and associated with witches? Maybe you're 'engaging' in this magical practice and didn't even know that you are!
You may be thinking, what are you talking about Kala? I don't use a cauldron, how am I part of this magical old world practice?
Sure back in the day, meaning way back in the day centuries ago, cast iron cauldrons were the pot used to cook over an open fire.
I mean once upon a time, the cast iron cauldron was the Instant Pot of its day!
But the way we cook has evolved over time and rarely are cauldrons used to cook with, except maybe while camping out as seen in the old western movies with a pot of beans roasting over the fire.
So why are cauldrons still represented today with magic?
The reason is that cauldrons are a symbolic shape and tool. They represent the energy of the Divine Feminine. The shape is round and nurturing and represents that good things come from within, symbolizing...
Greetings Fellow Traveler, it's me again, your travel guide to the other side popping in for a quick chat. What's on my mind today, you ask?
Well, mostly my thoughts are that it's almost Halloween, a time of fun, mystery and magic!
I can't talk about books and spirits and psychic ability and interpreting your dreams and reading auras and intuitive interior decor all the time, can I?
Actually I can and I love to do it, but it's also important to take the time to laugh a little and enjoy the sweet things that life has to offer. So let's explore a little of that shall we...
On that note, this year I went to visit the World of Harry Potter at Universal in Orlando and can I just say - Amazing! I could not LOVE J.K. Rowling's books anymore than I already do and I was a little worried that it wouldn't be able to be portrayed well in a theme park atmosphere, but I was more than pleasantly surprised. It's wonderful, I didn't want to leave, it's so magical I forgot...
Have you ever felt the moon calling for you? I'm serious, like late at night and you feel like something is calling to you... If you have, that's your intuition picking up the energetic signal!
The other night I was quietly working and writing when I felt this pull, like someone calling to me. This is not uncommon in my line of work as those in spirit often want to catch my attention and I feel their connection especially in the evening when the fast pace of the day has faded away into a comfortable evening.
This call felt different, it was more of a charming pull, like magnetic energy attracting my body to it. It was so strong that I had to get up to investigate this feeling. It was a siren song, asking me to come play.
I walked into my bedroom, which has a door that opens up to a private balcony. Above the door is a window, which is a nice feature as it shines light into the room by day while allowing for privacy.
As I enter the room, I see who has been calling to me,...
