As thousands of children across the world get ready to celebrate the spookiest night of the year a real life witch has revealed how she has the magical power to chat to the dead.
Inbaal Honigman is a self confessed ‘white witch’ who can cast spells, read the future in tarot cards and even commune with the spirits of the dead, The Daily Star reports.
In an interview with Sky News Inbaal described how anyone can potentially talk to the dearly deceased this All Hallows Eve, and you don’t even need to make a pact with Satan to do it!
If you think of the timing of Halloween it’s right in between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. The meat harvest is at the end of October and this all adds up to Halloween being the season of death.
If you believe in an afterlife and if you’ve lost anyone or missed anyone and want to honour them – it can be people in your family or a pet – Halloween is the time you can connect with them, think of them, remember them and invite them to your table.
Inbaal admitted that she’s more than happy to talk to the dead over the dinner table. Although to be fair ghosts are notorious for not eating a lot, not like the dinner guests from hell zombies.
While the term witch may imply child eating crone living alone in the woods Inbaal only ever uses her powers for good and has apparently helped people fall pregnant, lose weight, find their ideal jobs and their dream man.
She also keeps her magical life separate from her husband and two children.
In an interview with the Daily Express she said:
During the day I keep my magical tools, such as my chalice and dagger, on a high shelf. The children can see my things but can’t touch them.
No word if she can use a broom but I’m pretty sure you’ve got to get your flying license from Hogwarts before you can use one.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
