Hauntings of Chalmer United Church

Built in 1888, this church was one of the most popular churches in Kingston Ontario. (There’s a church on like every block downtown) Churches are normally a safe place for people to go and worship but this church has something more sinister to it.


In 1970 Chalmers United church became known as one of Kingston’s most haunted spots. People have reported feeling very uneasy and as if they are being watched. They don’t feel welcomed like you should in a church.  Queen University music students would often come to the church to practice the organ but after the attacks started they would change to a different church. All the attacks were on women.

One girl was playing the organ late at night when felt a presence behind her. She stopped playing and turned around, seeing nobody. She got up and slowly backed away from the organ, towards the main doors still feeling uneasy. She turned around to walk to the doors when she felt like someone was behind her. She ran and the presence followed her. She ran out not turning around to see who or what it could be. Several decades later and she still has trouble returning to the church.

Another report came from a male Queens student who didn’t have the encounter but his classmate was practicing on the organ in another room at the church. He heard her stop halfway through and since he had heard of the spirit who attacks women at the church he grew worried. He went to check up on her when he saw her backed against a wall and her arms extended to the side and she had gone pale in the face. He asked her about what happened and she said while she was playing the organ she felt a strange presence behind her. She truly believed the presence wanted to harm her. She stated that it had been circling her, trying to get to her back for some unknown reason. She refused to let it behind her so she backed into the wall. She was unharmed but she was shaking like mad.

Some say the church is only haunted because its near the old courthouse where a lot of hangings of criminals took place in the 19th century. Other’s claim its the spirit of an old organ player at the church. A girl remembered going to the church as a little girl and recalls seeing a strange man who played the organ. If and whenever she was around him she felt extremely uncomfortable and even after he died she felt his presence in the church. Its said this man had an extreme dislike of females and was old fashion in that he did not think women should be allowed to play the organ. This would explain why the spirit only went after women who were playing the organ.  After renovations were done around the organ in the 1980’s the attacks ceased. However, before the electrical fire in 1995 the care takers of the church believed the man’s spirit was still there.



Hauntings of The Prince George Hotel

The Prince George Hotel in Kingston

This building was constructed in 1809 was not just one of the original buildings in all of Kingston but it used to be a private home, businesses, saloons, warehouses and an oyster shop. Since the 1860’s its been used on and off as a hotel. It is now the headquarters to the Haunted Walk of Canada and on the first floor the Tir Nan og Irish pub. While not a lot of history about the hotel is recorded we do know that the original home and business that stood where the hotel is belonged to the Herchmer (pronounced Herk-e-mer)family.

The youngest of the Herchmer family was a girl named Lily. Lily was infatuated with a sailor. Her parents did not approve of her relationship with him. This didn’t stop them from having their romance. When her parents weren’t around Lily would light a candle in the window of her bedroom to let her lover know it was safe to visit. One night, Lily let the candle and while waiting for her lover, she fell asleep at the window. It was a windy night so it tipped the candle over and the home and business caught fire. Poor Lily perished in the fire. After the hotel was built in its place people have reported seeing a young women in old fashioned clothing roaming the halls or peering out windows. They say she continues to look for her long lost love. A man and his wife who were checking into the hotel reported talking to who they think was Lily. She asked him if he needed any help and when he said he wanted to check in she told him there was a room on the 3rd floor. She showed him to his room and when he and his wife turned around to thank the lady. she was gone. The wife recounted that she though the women’s old fashioned outfit was to go with the theme of the hotel with it being so old.

One of the managers of the Haunted Walk that I talked to said she was on the 3rd floor when a flashlight hit her in the head. She believes Lily was trying to help her find it and accidentally dropped it.

Lily isn’t the only spirit to have been found roaming the halls of the hotel, a young boy as well has been felt and seen.

A pub known as Scherzo Pub (now moved) had a tragic accident happen involving a young boy. The boy was the bakers son. He was said to have been playing a game (hide and seek perhaps?) when he climbed into one of the large ovens in the basement. While waiting to be found he fell asleep. The father not knowing his son was inside turned on the oven to prepare some food for the pub. He never knew his boy was in there until it was too late, his son tragically baked to death.

There is also a spirit of a little girl that hangs around the kitchen and the 3rd floor. One women was staying the night with her daughter on the 3rd floor. The women was working late and told her daughter to go to bed and don’t bother putting away her toys. Soon she too went to bed and woke up in the night and saw whom she though was her daughter playing with her toys. She noticed quickly that it wasn’t her daughter, her daughter was asleep beside her in bed. She spoke to the girl spirit who turned and looked at her then vanished. Guides will often hear a little girls giggles coming from the kitchen and one time they heard a voice say “I don’t like the Dark.” right after the light bulb burnt out. The guide remembers feeling a small hand move up her arm as if to cling to it. One of the managers at the time remembers hearing the little girl call someones name. the name was Sarah but it was not the name of the manager.  No one knows who the little girl is or how she died.

One women who was at the hotel the same time as me reported feeling her hand go numb every time she was there. She didn’t know why, but after I mentioned that there were two spirits of children in the building we came to the conclusion that one of them was trying to hold the women’s hand.

Other reports of hauntings came from cleaning crews or guests.

The cleaning crew often reported seeing lights turning on and off by themselves, radios in the bedrooms being turning on and off, doors slamming shut and then locking.

A British couple had been staying the night in the most haunted room, believed to have been Lily’s room. They woke up in the night to see the extra bed in their room hovering 3 feet off the floor. They called the front desk to ask if it was a normal occurrence. A small light is often seen in room 304’s window.

The catacomb basement is now storage rooms for all the pubs and often times its easy to get lost. A man went down to get something for the Tir Nan Og pub when he got chills and the hair on the back of his neck stood up. He felt as though he was being watched.



Hauntings of Kingston Penitentiary

gate to kingston pen

Slightly down the road from Rockwood asylum stands Kingston Penitentiary. Kingston pen. opened its doors in 1835 and closed in 2013.  During these times this maximum security prison held Canada’s most notorious criminals, such as; James Donelly, Russell Williams, Paul Bernardo, Clifford Olson, Roger Caron, Grace Marks and Wayne Boden .  They even imprisoned children. This prison was referred to  as the Alcatraz of the north. It is now a museum during the summer months.

Before the prisons was built, criminals in the area would receive 30-40 lashes at the whipping post.  Sometimes being branded with a  red hot iron rod. There were over 100 reasons to why someone might be hung from stealing a cow to murder. Finally on June 1st in 1835 the pen was finished being built and the crime went down as anyone who broke the law was put in the prison. The rules were so strict that prisoners were not allowed to even look at each other let alone speak.

Prisoners were kept in cells that were 27 inches wide and 6 and 2 thirds feet long, which left no room for them to move around when the beds were lowered for the night. The food was usually so horrible that prisoners would refuse to eat and starve. Usually the only meals they would get during the first century of the prison was moldy worm infested bread. In the summer the bread would mold quicker due to the heat. A warden admitted to letting those under his care eat from pig tropes just so he could get the prisoners to work longer. The prisoners would have to work 12 hours a day right after breakfast usually to keep building onto the prison or work in the prison shops. If any rules were broken the prisoners were often tortured with floggings, and long stays in a solitary confinement with no sunlight. The most common punishments though were,  3 or 4 meals of just bread and water and solitary confinement. One man James Brown, received 1002 lashes of the cat-o-nine tails whip and 216 more lashes from raw hide. He received every punishment the prison had to offer.  The prisoners who were children would receive the same punishments, they were not pitted. For 99 years the females would stay in the same prison until a new one was built a little ways away. (2 minute drive from me) Which is still open but holds men and women now.  One women in the 1940’s went insane from being punished with solitary confinment in something known as the dark cell.


Kingston Penitentiary tour

standard cell

The worst years to be an inmate was when a man known as Warden Henry Smith took over. He believed in severe punishment. He made the labouring even more hard for the inmates.  1847 was his most brutal year. 6,000 punishments were meted out under his orders. He would use the cat-o-nines whip giving the prisoners 36 lashes and created his own punishment method. It was know as ‘the box’. A wooden coffin like box which would hold a prisoner in an upright position from 6-9 hours. There was a breathing hole but the tormentors would often poke the inmate through it.  Smith ended up being dismissed for mismanagement but he set the record for how the inmates would continue being treated.

The Box

Smith’s son, Frank Smith who worked as a kitchen steward. He often stole things from the kitchen for himself or would sell them. He was almost as cruel as his father to the inmates.  He often would shoot the inmates with arrows simply to entertain himself. He would throw potatoes at them, sticking them with pins and spiting or throwing salt in their mouths.

The outside world had no knowledge of what went on inside the walls of this prison. Even if someone were to come in they were shielded from it. An example of this was Charles Dickens himself. He visited the pen and found it to be “intelligently and humanly. ”

On April 14, 1971, a riot that lasted 4 days ended up taking the lives of two inmates. A man by the name of Ty Conn was the 2nd person to ever escape the pen and but two weeks later committed suicide after being surrounded.  Canada’s ‘Vampire Rapist’ Wayne Boden died in 2006 while imprisoned at the Kingston pen.

Rumours quickly spread of ghostly activity at the prison before it even closed down. One winter full moon night, some guards were doing their rounds when they turned the corner they saw a man in convict clothing making his way over to the medical ward, then walked from the hospital into another building, who turned to face the guards then disappeared. The guard had risen their rifles but lowered them after he disappeared. The guards terrified, reported what they saw. Everyone on duty worked together to solve the mystery but had no luck. The creepiest part was they recognized the convict as George Hewell who had been shot and killed a year earlier. He tried multiple times to kill other inmates including trying to strangle another inmate for just taking his library book. Finally one day he was shot after trying to throw another inmate off the 3rd floor balcony. Hewell was confined to the dark cell and given work at the tailor shop. He took the shears and when guards had tried entering his cell he attacked them with the shears. The chief Keeper made the decision to shoot him. Although shot in the head, it took all of 5 hours for him to die. During which time he continued to curse and swear at the guards. He vowed to be back for revenge. He continues to be the main spirit everyone hears and reports seeing.

One of my favourite youtubers who films abandoned and haunted locations went to this prison multiple times. On video he captured strange noises such as voices, footsteps and doors slamming. He had a few things thrown at him and has witnessed light fixtures swinging by themselves, dried blood with a bullet and possible shadows of spirits.  In his video he reported feeling like he was pushed. He found that cell 13 was the most haunted. As in each of his videos of the prison he captured new things near or at cell 13. I have provided links to his videos below.


With the negative history of Kingston Penitentiary it’s no wonder many spirits still roam the prison.









Hauntings of Rockwood Asylum

Rockwood Criminally Insane Asylum

Everyone’s heard of old asylums being haunted but imagine if the asylum was in your own town only a 5 minute drive from your home.

This past summer I did a video at this particular asylum. It is known As Rockwood Insane Asylum for the Criminally insane.  Built by the prisoners themselves in 1859 to 1870  at Lake Ontario. It was believed the lake would have a calming affect on the prisoners.  The asylum also housed “harmless lunatics” and even innocent people. Women were brought in too although kept separate from the male prisoners most of the time.  The women were to stay in the horse stables until the building was completed. Altogether the asylum held 300 patients.  Although the building looks eerie, on the inside it was designed with a therapeutic look. Bright colours on the walls instead of plain. They had siting rooms and lots of furniture and decorations.  The bedrooms were upgraded too. The prisoners even got treated with outings on the town and yacht rides. They were one of the first people in Canada to get central heating.  They had a full service medical infirmary and a on and off site school to teach English to female patients who were illiterate. They also made a house on the grounds for the children of the patients. In 1959 the patients who were residing at Rockwood were transferred to the new buildings on the property and the asylums name changed to Penrose which became a building for those with disabilities. Rockwood/Penrose closed in 2000, 18 years ago and has been up for sale since. Connecting to the old property is now a fully functional hospital for those with poor mental health. In my video it was still under construction but before winter it was completed.


Now you know the common history of the asylum but there is history that others don’t know about. The hauntings of the spirits that are still lingering the old historical buildings.  Not many people are allowed to tour the inside not even paranormal investigators. However, locals have reported seeing faces in the windows. A security guard has reported something unseen touching him in the main part of the asylum. As well as his name tag being ripped off and being thrown across the room.


A Doctor Metcaf was murdered in the nurses quarters by one of the patients by stabbing him repeatedly. It is believed his spirit still wanders the grounds.

Others have reported feeling touched or tripped by something unseen but security is too tight to let anyone inside. Not even paranormal hunters are allowed into the buildings. This makes it hard to confirm the stories of it being haunted. Due to the city being known as the limestone city it is believed that the limestone keeps the spirits around.

We may never truly know if the asylum is haunted until they allow tours again. I believe the energies and spirits of some of the staff or patients at the asylum still linger.

Hauntings of Fort Henry


2nd Fort

This magnification fort is known  as Fort Henry.  It was built during the war of 1812.  The first one  was built in between great Britain  (present day Canada) and The United States.  It is part of the reason Canada/Great Britain won the war.  It’s said that the american soldiers would sail up to one of the neighbouring thousand islands and check it out to see if it was safe. However, great Britain always had soldiers on post. Great Britain believed the fort would get attacked because it was near Royal Naval Docks (current day Royal Military College.) It was a secluded fort at the opening of the St. Lawrence River. The american’s believed it would cut off our trading route and communications with the rest of the city of Kingston and anything to the east of the city. The present day fort is the one from the picture above.  The new one protects 3 bodies of water, The St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario and The Rideau Canal for the trading routes.

In 1870 the British troupes abandoned the fort and Canadian troops took over until 1891. The fort was left abandoned and unmanaged until 1936 when it was claimed and as of 1938 it became a museum.


I have been to the fort 4 times. Twice for the historic tour of the museum and twice because in October every year they turn the fort into a haunted house for Halloween.  (Would highly recommend both if anyone visits the city). During the last Fort Fright, we had the opportunity to do a haunted walk and learn about the hauntings of the fort.


On the slope of the hill where the fort stands, there used to be the gallows. A man by the name of Nils Von Schoultz who was from Finland, met his end at these gallows. He considered himself a romantic and freedom fighter. After his work in Poland’s revolution he relocated to the U.S. He joined an organization by the name of The Hunter’s Lodge.  They recruited Americans who wanted in invade Canada because they believed Canadians were being oppressed by the British. They believed Canadians would join their side in rebellion. They were wrong. Von Schoultz and 200 men arrived in Canada and they fought against Canadian’s in a place known as Prescott.  The battle is now known as the battle of the windmill. Von Schoultz had a trial and pleaded guilty. He was then hung in the Gallows in Kingston in 1838. It’s said his spirit still lingers at Fort Henry.

In officers quarters 3, something unusual seems to be happening. The rocking chair in the room has been seen rocking back and forth. No one is able to touch it as the room is hidden behind a giant glass window.  In the hall in front of the room reports have said they have seen a blue orb floating or sometimes floating above the rocking chair.  Many people say they feel as though someone in the room is watching them. Its always reported as a negative feeling. Most feel as though it might be Nils Von Schoultz, which would make sense due to how the old fort was laid out. Children are usually the witness’ to the uncomfortable presence that haunts Guard Quarter # 3.

In 1865 a man was escorting “ladies” home and on his way back to the fort he fell into a large ditch which was about 30ft deep and died short after. The man’s name was Enseign Godfrey.

In 1849 a man was thrown from his carriage at The Penny bridge, into a ditch. He also died.

A caretaker of the fort was to fire the noonday gunshot and he was in a  hurry to leave and get to town so he reloaded the gun after shooting it off. He didn’t let the gun cool off before ramming it with more gunpowder. It went off and killed the man.

Another gunner named John Smith in 1838 was ramming home a cartridge into a big gun on the wall. He was using a paper cartridge which tore and ignited before he was in the clear. He was blown into the inner wall of the fort and then the outer wall, where he fell into the 30 foot ditch and died 6 hours later.

To add to the list of hauntings, Canada held prisoners of war from both world wars at Fort Henry where some of them died.

The kitchen of the present day fort, has experienced poltergeist activity from what is believed to be a young child of a solider who had to stay at the fort. Things have been seen flying around the kitchen and doors slamming and locking on their own. Tourists have reported feeling someone touching their hands. Next to the kitchen is the school room.

In 1997, tourists parked in the parking lot of the fort and took their dogs for a walk around the outside of the fort. The fort was empty. They went to the back of the fort and heard loud noises coming from inside. The sounds of a dozen men or so yelling. They reported seeing a few bonfire lights as the men were yelling. They assumed a special event was taking place so they went back to the front to talk to security who told them all the workers had left for the day already.

A few years ago a security guard was making their rounds around the fort when he heard voices and as he drew closer to the lower fort area where they were coming from he heard glass break coming from the school room, which was across the parade yard. He yelled out to whomever was there saying the gates are locked and they can’t get out.  There was no reply so he radioed his  partner for help. They investigated and heard multiple voices in the distance and more glass breaking.  They called the police who did a sweep of the entire fort and found no one, and no broken glass. They joked saying the security should take a night off. As the police pulled away, the noises came back with footsteps in the parade yard.  The security called the police back and after begging for awhile they came back for another search.  They found nothing again. As they were about to leave they heard glass shatter about 20-30 ways away from them. The police drew their guns and called for backup.  They all searched the fort once more and found nothing. They told security to lock up and go home for the night.

A man named John McAuliffe might be one of the angry spirits roaming the fort. He was known as a violent man and when almost arrested by the soldiers, he cursed at them and struck one solider with his rifle.  He stabbed another solider. He was hung at the fort in 1835.

In one of the guard rooms a tall man with a dark beard is often seen but know one knows who he is.

Voices can be heard in the dry ditch where John Montgomery’s victorious escape from his imprisonment at the fort  happened in the 1838 rebellion.  Several others tried scaling the walls in the middle of a rain storm with Montgomery. Maybe Montgomery returned to where he had his victory or maybe its the voices of those who died in the ditch.

The most occurring spirit is nicknamed the ‘Wandering Ghost’. In 1990 a senior member of the Fort Henry guard was doing his nightly routine and as he looked for any cigarettes or candles that may still be lit he would often get chills on the back of his neck. Making his hair stand up each time, he walked through the dark rooms.  He always felt as though someone  was watching him but he grew used to it. He was used to seeing people walking around the fort in the old uniforms so he wasn’t surprised when he saw a man with a dark beard wearing one. He ignored him at first but realized no one else should be left in the fort. He thought it was his own reflection when he thought about it but then he saw the uniformed man walk passed the window and walk to the outer wall. when the guardsmen went outside the man in the uniform was gone.


In 2001, one of the tour guides was giving a tour through the barracks rooms when she and several customers saw a shadowy figures reflection in the window. The shadow appear to look like a man marching in the middle of the parade square. When she and the tour group reached the doorway the figure disappeared. Guards have also reported seeing a figure in the square who appeared drunk or badly injured. The same figure was also seen back in the 1960’s.

Who are all of these spirits? We may never know.



Hauntings of Skeleton Park

McBurney park, otherwise known as Skeleton park in Kingston Ontario is one of the most haunted places in this early settlement city of Canada. It is the most famous hidden burial ground in the country.

The cemetery opened in 1809 and filled up quickly with disease struck the city. Typhus and Cholera took many lives.  Specifically 1,400 Irish Immigrants lost their lives to these diseases from the 1830’s-1840’s. Due to the fear of the diseases being air born the bodies of the Irish immigrants were quickly dumped in shallow graves. Some about 2 feet deep.  The cemetery closed to burials in 1865.

The cemetery became haunted not just from the multiple burials but grave robbing was a common situation back then. Queens University medical students were to provide body parts to examine. Mainly organs. They themselves would go dig up the bodies or they would purchases them off the black market. The easiest place to dig up bodies in the city was in this cemetery since the graves weren’t deep.

The graves were disturbed once more in 1893. The cemetery was in such a bad shape the locals begged the city to do something about it. The city finally met the demands of the people and started removing the bodies. They often found coffins empty due to the grave robbing. Bodies were moved to other cemeteries in the city but only if the families could afford to have the city move them. Them ones that couldn’t or those who could not be identified were left or moved to another spot in the cemetery. In some cases bodies would just pile up over each other. It’s said there is a large pile of bodies underneath the middle of the park.

The city continued to move bodies until they had enough cleared so they could start building a playground. The grave stones weren’t moved most of the time and most of them got knocked over and had grass planted over top. When putting in sets the poles would often hit a bone, so they would stop the project. When they wanted to add a wading pool they found several bodies.  When trying to add a new gas line they encountered more problems. This occurrence happened quite often and each time they would have to stop the project and call in an archaeologist.  The only gravestone still standing is a monument for the first Presbyterian minister. In the 1950’s it was a big fad among boys to sneak into the park, dig up skulls and mount them on their bikes handle bars. Security often had to chase them out. The town did everything to forget about the graves in the park and many did forget.

Years ago one man who lived by the park, put his house up for sale because his dog dug up a human hand. The dog had found it after digging up the owners garden. There was an occurrence when two Queens Unv. students in the area believed their house was haunted. They knew nothing of the park’s history or even the history of Kingston. One of the girls were on their way home after class when they saw grey mist surround the park and it looked like a run down grave yard. She remembered seeing a city park just hours before and believed she was mistaken of the parks location. Both her and her roommate started having problems at their home. Both would get chills when they were alone or would feel trapped. They sensed a strange presence in their house and could sometimes pinpoint the exact location it came from. They started hearing footsteps and voices of a man and woman. On many occasions they would experience poltergeist activity with things flying all over the place including a heavy candle center piece. Friends claimed to see a blue light that looked like a human silhouette. Violent dreams followed for the girls. Both reported feeling like their bodies were being taken over by an evil being that looked like a man. One of the girls woke up coughing and gagging as if she was being choked. Sometimes she was said to have been  banging and thrashing into the wall.  They began asking friends to stay over to drive away the figure. It did not work they reported seeing an couple dressed in old fashioned clothing. One friend was driven away as soon as they entered the drive way, Another saw the dark figure and hid in one of the girls bedroom not wanting to come out. The girls came across another student from the university who claimed to be a medium. She was to come over to their home to talk to the spirits but she cancelled the following morning. She claimed to have had a dream with a man telling her not to go and she did not want to anger the spirit further. The girls finally moved from the building.

Another lady who did not know of the parks history was living near by and she was relaxing reading a book one weekend morning when she heard a women’s voice on the other end of the baby monitor. She ran upstairs to check on her baby and the nursery door slammed shut.  The mother tried to open it but it refused to open. She finally got in and found no one around and the baby sound asleep. She passed it off as the wind and closed the window. Upon noticing it wasn’t windy out she saw a reflection of female figure dressed in old fashioned clothing that resembled a midwifes outfit. She turned around and the women was gone.

One man was told to meet his friend at the park near his house and when he got to the address his friend told him he only saw a old graveyard. figuring that’s what his friend meant he went to the middle of the graveyard and waited for his friend. When his friend arrived the scenery had changed back to a park.

My own friend had an occurrence in the park. She was walking to her boyfriends and to get there faster she needed to cross the park. She started walking through it went she noticed a person pacing around the garden in the middle of the park. As my friend got closer the person disappeared.

A medium who knew nothing of the park or it’s history was brought there blind folded at first. She sensed a lot of bodies and believed to be in a graveyard. She stated that it was crowded and there was a lot of confusion. Eventually the people who brought her there enlightened her on the history and removed the blindfold to show a park. She was asked if the souls who were still around were happy that this place was turned into a park and the answer was an almost unanimous yes. She said the ones who have peaked into this reality enjoy seeing the happy children.

There is also reports that every Halloween at midnight the park reverts back to a graveyard scenery.

To this day it’s said there are still about 8,000-10,000 bodies still under the park and the streets connecting to it.

Indigo Children

What is a Indigo child? 

A Indigo child is a term used when referring to a child who has spiritual powers. That doesn’t mean they have powers like telepathy or telekinesis. it just means they are generally more spiritually aware. They are also know as rainbow children or crystal children.

Signs of a Indigo Child:

  • Strong willed
  • Born in 1978 or later
  • Headstrong
  • Creative, with an artistic flair for music, jewelry making, poetry, etc.
  • Prone to addictions
  • An “old soul”
  • Intuitive or psychic, possibly with a history of seeing angels or deceased people
  • An isolationist, either through aggressive acting-out or through fragile introversion
  • Independent and proud, even if they’re constantly asking you for money
  • Possess a deep desire to help the world in a big way
  • Wavers between low self-esteem and grandiosity
  • Bores easily
  • Has probably been diagnosed as having ADD or ADHD
  • Prone to insomnia, restless sleep, nightmares, or difficulty/fear of falling asleep due to being followed by spirits/angels.
  • Has a history of depression, or even suicidal thoughts or attempts
  • Looks for real, deep, and lasting friendships
  • Easily bonds with plants or animals.

To confirm that you are a indigo child/person you have to possess at least 14 of these traits. ex. I share 10 of these traits so I would not be considered one. Also, you don’t have to necessarily be born in 1978 or  later, it is possible you were born before then and still be a indigo. They are just more commonly found to be born around that time or at a later date. Furthermore, it’s also possible to have more than just these traits but these are the more common traits found in indigos.  They can also be noticed by their Indigo coloured aura.

Behaviour Patterns: 

  1. Truly feel like they were born special and flaunt it.
  2. Know their purpose in life. They tend to  expect you to realize their purpose as well.
  3. Tend to be very confident and have a high sense of self -worth
  4. They know what they want and how they are going to get it and no one will go against that.
  5. They tend to disagree with specific rules that are set and place and tend to challenge people on those rules.
  6. Like to think outside of the box all the time and everything needs creative input.
  7. Similarly to the rule challenge, they often come up with better ways to do something even if the original has been in place for a long period of time.
  8. Seen as anti social but can sometimes just be misunderstood.
  9. Control methods tend not to stick with them. for better words they don’t care.
  10. Fulfillment of their needs is strongly important to them.

What happens when a Indigo child, who has a disorder takes medication?

Depending on the drug, it can end of suppressing the child’s awareness to their abilities. Some will just delay their ability to make changes in the world.


I possess these traits but am not a child what does that mean?

Even when grown up but you have these traits you are still an indigo. Its just more common to see it in children/adolescents.

What does it mean to be an indigo child?

Well it generally means you want to change the world to make it better. Although some of the traits can make the indigo people snobby sounding its the furthest thing from the truth. They are all about excepting and making the world a better place for all.

Gems, Crystals and Stones: Apatite

I recently bought one of these beauties from a Gem show in town called Gem storm. The one I got was a Flourapitate.


Apatite is named for the Greek word apate.  It is pronounced as ap-a-tite. However, it means deceit. This fits because Apatite gems tend to look very similar to other gems.  Gems in this group was discovered in 1786, 1832, 1860 and 1990’s.   Up until recently these gems were never used in Jewelry because its a very soft stone and can be delicate. Due to its many colours its become quite popular.


Depending on each gem stone in this group the colours can range from almost anything. The colours of these gems are; purple, blue, pink, brown, gray, green, violet, red-brown, white, yellow and even colourless.


Apatite is said to bring many benefits to those who own it. It can help with the immune system, cleanses the glandular, lymphatic and meridian systems as well. Mentally it can help with negative emotions relating to self conscious. Also it helps the wearer accept things in their life like love, self love, comfort and support.


This is some extra information that is important to know with these gems. The best cleaning method for your gem is washing ti in warm soapy water. It is risky if you try a ultrasonic cleaning.  Do not expose the stone to any acids, high heat or rough wear.  If its expose to large amount of heat it will lose its colour or it’ll change colours. A lot of light can make the colour fade if the stone is pink. Be careful not to scratch or damage the stone in any way. If your stone is in a jewelry form, place it in a different area than the rest of your jewelry to prevent scratches. You could also wrap it in a felt cloth when putting it away.


Here is a list of the different types of apatite and what they look like. However as mentioned above they do come in different colours.

Gems, Crystals and Stones: Quart

I remember as a child, I would always dog through the rocks in the playground at school just so I could find these shiny quartz. I had a huge collection as a child. (not sure what happened to it). I was fascinated with this gem. They are the most common of gems. I have 2 rose quartz and three clear quartz on my altar. Below I did not include any pcitures of these gems since they will all be/have been covered in future/older blogs.



Quartz has been around since pre-historic times. The most ancient of quartz is said to have been around since 300-325 B.C.E, Rose quartz beads date back to 7000 B.C. Rose quartz jewelry was crafted by the Assyrians  around 800-600 B.C. The Assyrians and the Romans are said to be the first people to use this gem. Ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians often used rose quartz as potent talismans. People in the middle ages would use quartz in love potions. Early Americans also used quartz. They often used them for amulets. It is believed by ancient people and healers today that the quartz crystal is actually a living thing. Its said it takes a breath every hundred years.

Ostara Ritual

(Disclaimer: This is not a ritual I created)


Spring is the time of year when the cycle of life, death, and rebirth is complete. As plants bloom and new life returns, the theme of resurrection is ever present. As Ostara, the spring equinox, arrives, it’s the season for that which has gone dormant to become revitalized, alive, and reborn. Depending on your particular tradition, there are many different ways you can celebrate Ostara, but typically it is observed as a time to mark the coming of Spring and the fertility of the land.

By watching agricultural changes — such as the ground becoming warmer, and the emergence of plants from the ground — you’ll know exactly how you should welcome the season.

This ritual includes a symbolic rebirthing — you can perform this rite either as a solitary practitioner, or as a part of a group ceremony. Feel free to substitute the names of your tradition’s deities where appropriate. Also, if you’ve ever thought about rededicating yourself to the gods of your tradition, Ostara is an excellent time to do this.

In addition to setting up your Ostara altar for this ritual, you’ll need the following supplies: a black sheet for each participant, a bowl of soil, water, a white candle, and incense. For this rite, the High Priestess (HPs) or High Priest (HP) should be the only person at the altar. Other participants should wait in another room until called. If you’re doing the rite outside, the group can wait some distance away from the altar.

If your tradition calls for you to cast a circle, do this now.

The first person in the group waits outside the circle, covered from head to toe in the black sheet. If your group is comfortable with skyclad rituals, you can be nude under the sheet — otherwise, wear your ritual robe. Once the HPs is ready to begin, she calls the first participant into the altar area, cutting an opening in the circle as the person enters and then closing it behind them.

The participant, still covered in the black sheet, kneels on the floor before the altar.

The HPs greets the participant, and says:

Today is the time of the Spring equinox.
Ostara is a time of equal parts light and dark.
Spring has arrived, and it is a time of rebirth.
The planting season will soon begin, and
life will form once more within the earth.
As the earth welcomes new life and new beginnings,
so can we be reborn in the light and love of the gods*.
Do you, (name), wish to experience the rebirth of spring, and
step out of the darkness into the light?

The participant replies with an affirmative answer. The HPs takes the salt from the altar, and sprinkles it over the sheet-clad participant, saying:

With the blessings of the earth, and the life within the soil,
you are reborn in the eyes of the gods.

Next, the HPs takes the lit incense and passes it over the participant, saying:

With the blessings of air, may knowledge and wisdom
be brought to you upon the winds.

The HPs takes the burning candle and (carefully!) passes it over the participant, saying:

May the fire of the spring sun bring growth and harmony
into your life.

Finally, the HPs sprinkles water around the participant, and says:

With the blessings of water, may the chill and darkness of winter,
be swept away by the warm spring rains.

Rise! Step forth out of the darkness, and climb into the light.
Awaken once more in the arms of the gods.

At this point, the participant slowly emerges from the black sheet. Remember, this is a symbolic rebirth. Take your time if you feel you need to. As you pull the sheet back away from you, remember that you are not only stepping into the light, but putting behind you the darkness of the past six months. Winter is over, and spring has arrived, so take a few moments, as you emerge, to think about the magic of this time of year.

The High Priestess then welcomes the participant, saying:

You have stepped once more into the light,
and the gods welcome you.

Repeat the ceremony until all members of the group have been “reborn”. If you are performing this rite as a solitary, obviously you would speak the lines of the HPs yourself, and bless the area around yourself with the dirt, incense, candle and water.

Once everyone in the group has gone through the rebirthing, take some time to meditate on the balancing energy of Ostara. Light and dark are equal, as are positive and negative. Consider, for a while, the polarity of this season. Think about the balance you wish to find in your life, and consider how you may work harder to find harmony within yourself.

When you are ready, end the ritual, or move on to a cake and ale ceremony, spellwork or other healing magick.
