Spirit Detection Reading to Tell You if An Item is Spirited
With all the fraudulent "sellers of spirit dolls" out there, we thought it best to add this service. We love our loyal customers who only adopt from us, but we love all our customers, and we realize you're going to see posts on Etsy and Facebook for spirit dolls that seem to draw you in. We would never want to prevent a union between you and someone who needs you (and vice versa). We just want to help to ensure that you are adopting a spirit and not buying an empty doll or another type of empty vessel.
There are a lot of ways to tell if someone is a scam artist, but sometimes even scam artists can get lucky. They'd probably be surprised themselves to find out that some of their dolls and other items that they are trying to sell are actually spirited! We know of a lot of the scammers, but they're popping up left and right now, so we can't know all of them. And like I mentioned, even scammers can by chance end up with an item that actually is spirited and not even know it because they know nothing about spirits. They only know about money.
Moondance Magik has a foster care program for spirited dolls who need a forever home. Since there are only less than a dozen of us working here, including the owners, but there are thousands of spirits with us needing forever homes, we can't possibly give them all the attention they deserve. They want to go to a home where they will get more one-on-one attention. They also want to go with someone who needs them. Most of the spirits we have in our care do not feel needed, because they offer gifts that the owners here already possess. At this time, we are not accepting new spirited items for foster. We have taken in many from clients and the locals over the years, but now we are at capacity and even worse, we had to buy another building to house their vessels.
When we had our retail shop, people would often bring their items in to confirm that they were spirited. If Meta, Mya, or Stormy were there and available to do a quick check, they'd do it free of charge for our regular customers, and sometimes for complete strangers. They are so busy these days though that it is hard to justify constantly taking time away from their loyal customers who are getting readings, adopting spirits, and buying potions to give free services to anyone. Most of the time, Stormy is booked out at least 3 weeks. She was booked ahead for two months not long ago. Meta and Mya also have solid schedules these days. They do want to help, but it's not fair to the paying customers to do this free of charge. It also takes them a little more effort and time to read a photo or a video than it does to see the item in person. For this reason, we are now offering this service in our online store for a nominal fee. It doesn't take nearly as long as a regular reading such as a past, present, or future life reading, but it does take time and energy.
With the purchase of this reading, Meta, Mya or Stormy will read one, three, or five items to authenticate them. (See options at checkout).
You'll need to send us a photo or a video of the item(s) you wish us to verify for you AFTER you check out. (If you send it before your purchase, it will just make things incredibly confusing for us!) We get way too many orders daily to have to stop to try to figure out why we are getting pictures in our email that we can't match up with an order.
Sending a link is fine, as well, if you want Meta, Mya or Stormy to take a look at the listing. In fact, a link to the item(s) is preferred, because it will give them a chance to also look at their other items to get a general consensus of the seller's dealings, and they can then add people to their fraud alert list if the sellers turn out to be frauds, or add them to their "Genuine Spirit Orphanage" list if they are the real deal. They will also go above and beyond if they have the seller's link by looking at other vessels they have listed to know for certain if the seller is habitually offering just plain old dolls with no spirit attachment or if it's possible that the one you are looking at is one of those deals where the seller got lucky - or just the opposite. A good "seller" who normally has spirited items for real can sometimes have an item that was spirited, but the spirit left the vessel. That will happen from time to time for various reasons if they are not adopted. It has happened to us.
I have seen the Moondance ladies give the thumbs up to people who got their spirited items elsewhere and I have seen them give them the bad news that their items are actually not spirited at all. They are honest people. They will give you the honest truth as they see it. Their reputation is not worth lying to anyone about something so close to their hearts, even if they were the type of people to lie.
Our main goal here is to give credit where it's due so you know who to trust and to out the frauds so you know who to be wary of.
Please be sure to read our Terms of Service before making any purchase with us. Must be 18 years of age or older, for one thing, but there is more. By making a purchase from this shop, you agree that you have read and understand our TOS.
