From Darkness Comes Light~

New Orleans is known for its ghost stories, and in the midst of the French Quarter is a Creole-style mansion on Royal and Governor Nicholls Streets that draws a lot of attention. It was once the home of Dr. Lalaurie and his wife Delphine. Katherine Smith, a New Orleans historian and tour guide for Haunted History Tours, documents the tale in Journey into Darkness: Ghosts and Vampires of New Orleans.

Delphine was a reputedly beautiful woman with long, black hair, and she and her husband were renowned for their extravagant parties. They had many slaves and seemed a respectable pair, but little did townspeople know what Madame Lalaurie did to make her slaves submissive. She had already been in court over charges of brutality, and on one occasion after complaints of abuse, several slaves had been removed from the home, but few people would speak out against this couple, so they were never arrested. Not even after a young girl jumped to her death from the second floor to escape her harsh mistress. Then one night in 1834, a fire brought a volunteer fire brigade to the home and the Lalauries' gruesome secrets were discovered.

As they put out the flames, they could smell the stench of death, so they broke into a locked attic room to find a truly disgusting scene. According to several accounts, dead slaves were chained to the walls, but some were still alive and housed in cages, starved or maimed by medical experiments. One man had been surgically transformed into a woman, and a woman's arm and leg bones had been broken and reset at odd angles. Another woman's skin had been peeled off, while the lips of a third were sewn shut. A few had been dissected, with their organs still exposed. Scattered around the room were pails full of body parts, organs, and severed heads.

A lynch mob was formed, but the Lalauries had escaped and were never heard from again. Renovations years later uncovered the skeletons of slaves apparently buried alive, but no one knows how many unfortunate victims these two brutes actually had.

Smith indicates that this building soon became known as "Haunted House," and people avoided it. Although it is a beautiful residence in a desirable location, it sat vacant for forty years. Then several successive owners reported such problems that it again sat vacant for a time. Stories include sightings of a large male in chains, a woman who shouts in French and carries a whip, pictures inside thrown from the walls, cameras not working, and furniture that moved around on its own. The current owner is aware of the tourists who come to see it, but requests privacy.

The housekeeper for the resident who lived there, before the current owner, contacted Haunted Curiosities with stories of paranormal activity. She had documented many crazy things that happened in the home, but she also found out that we deal with haunted jewelry and asked if Deedee would look at a collection of pieces that she retrieved while working at the old home.

Deedee went to New Orleans last spring and met up with the woman, Alma. Alma told Deedee that the original owners were followers of the Underworld, they torchered their servants to proclaim fierce demands of the devil.

The property needed the sewage updated and when they were digging the trenches they recovered a box filled with various papers, trinkets and jewelry. The Donaldson's told Alma that she could keep the items because she was very intrigued by them; this is where she learned all the secrets from the past.

There were several jewelry items; she had kept them locked in the box for years because she wasn't sure what they did, but she felt an immense charge that emitted from the box.

This is where Deedee came into play!~ She was able to use our testing skills to understand what was within the items.

The jewelry items all hold incredible white light magic powers. The family evoked the spirits of their servants and those they took power over and placed their souls into these pieces; they were then buried deep within the yard, never to have been found again~

These pieces have been hidden with the divine powers for years --- the spirits within have been lost in the shadows hoping that they would be found... they are ready to enchant you with their strengths and abilities of spiritual healing, forces of magnetic auras, telepathic transmissions, love and intuition.

The pure power of white light that floods the born soul is what is held within these items --- these people lost their lives to dark enchanting by people they trusted and now want to give their true endearments of true light energies to the person who bonds with their piece.

m When you buy one of this ite you will be given the name of the spirit within your particular piece and the background on their life and strengths that they will portray upon your life --- victims of early death, murder to be more precise, want to come forth to live on with the help of others. There are plans, hopes and dreams that we all have and when you unexpectedly are killed you cannot fulfill your plans --- thus bringing the white light powers of their spirits back from these pieces to enrich your life with blessings!

Alma kept one piece, Deedee has one and I have one as well --- the final piece is now available to you~ it is a delightfully enchanted piece of pure, white light power!
