Waugh is an American Necromancer
She often compared today as
being "the modern day
Dr. John Dee". He of
course was one of the most
fascinating characters of
the Elizabethan period, just
as Waugh is recognized as
such in modern times as such.
The events of Dee's life are
filled with science, experiments,
astrology and mathematics
which he aligned with magic,
the supernatural and alchemy,
and so is Waugh's.
Waugh was an
accountant and astrologer
for many years and took of
the Black Art of a Necromancer
when she was child growing
up lived in the town of Marshall,
Texas. "The dead were
everywhere," says Waugh.
"The would follow me
and try to communicate but
it was only through real Seances
and bone conjuring at first
that I accomplished the deed."
ball was passed down to her
through many generations.
It belonged to her fathers
mother and her mother respectably.
Waugh never saw or even was
aware or knew about it until
her father's inheritance passed
to her. That's when it was
retrieved from a bank vault
and given to her by the families
lawyer. And the first face
she saw in it was her fathers
as she sat in the office stunned.
From then on
Waugh began the learning process
to the fine art of "Scrying
A few of Waugh's
select followers say she is
the actual reincarnation of
John Dee. Waugh also was an
accountant and practices astrology
daily, and is very continuously
studying the Black Art of
Necromancy as she did since

For many years
Waugh worked exclusively with
the talented Clair-Olfaction
Medium Yvonne Brown. (Brown

Lisa Lee Harp Waugh's
crystal ball visions seem to defy
explanation many say. She does not
read for people as psychics or mediums
do . Waugh uses hers to see and communicate
with real ghosts only.
Scrying for the dead says Waugh can
be an auto-deepening trance process
that progresses in stages using tools
such as a crystal ball, or other medium
such as her crystal skull or a large
mouthed chalice of black india ink.
Initially, the Ball or Black Ink
serves as a focus for the attention,
removing unwanted thoughts from the
mind in the same way as a mantra.
Once this is achieved, the scryer
begins a free association with the
perceived images suggested, for instance
in a crystal ball, by the tiny inclusions,
web-like faults and/or the cloudy
glow within the ball under low light
The technique of deliberately looking
for and declaring these initial images
aloud, however trivial or irrelevant
they may seem to the conscious mind,
is done with the intent of deepening
the trance state, wherein the scryer
hears their own disassociated voice
affirming what is seen within the
concentrated state in a kind of feedback
This process culminates in the achievement
of a final and desired end stage in
which visual images and dramatic stories
seem to be projected within the mind's
eye of the scryer, like an inner movie.
This overall process reputedly allows
the scryer to "see" relevant
events or images within the Ball itself.
Scrying has been used for thousands
of years by different cultures. Ancient
Egypt used scrying in their Initiations.
This included water scrying, dream
scrying, oil scrying, and mirror scrying.
One legend states that the goddess
Hathor carried a shield that could
reflect back all things in their true
light. From this shield she allegedly
fashioned the first magic mirror to
Waugh even has gone as far as using
a psychomanteum (sometimes spelled
as psychomantium, and often called
"mirror gazing") is a large
or small mirrored room, specially
set up to communicate with the spiritual
In her large fifth Ward home in
Houston, Texas she has a room where
all is mirrored including the floor,
ceiling and all the walls and Door.
The room has no windows and is 20
x 20 feet. This is a room where Waugh
talks to the dead freely and says
it is like being inside a crystal
ball in real life. Waugh considers
her room a therapeutic tool to heal
ones deep grief and bring insight
for you travel the astral when you
go into the rooms trance state.
Waugh enters the room completely
nude except with a white hand made
lace veil on her head with only a
single black sweet smelling black
arts candle which she makes by hand.
She then lies naked upon the cold
slick glass floor and gazes at the
dark reflections around her. "
This is when after a few moments I
enter the real spirit world and they
communicate with me."
Sometimes described as an "apparition
booth" the psychomanteum dates
back to ancient Greece, where a person
would gaze into a still pool of water.
This silent and steady gazing into
a reflective pool would produce apparitions
or visions. In 1958, the Classical
Greek archaeologist, Sotiris Dakaris
found accommodation near the Dodona
oracle spoken of by Homer and Herodotus,
where supplicants would wait their
turn at the oracle in complete darkness.
An extensive maze led to a long central
apparition hallway where the experience
took place. There Dakaris found the
remnants of an bronze cauldron ringed
with a banister which made it appear
that the people who were seeing the
apparitions would be gazing at the
Catoptromancy (Gk. katoptron, mirror,
and manteia, divination), captromancy
or enoptromancy, is divination using
Pausanias, an ancient Greek traveler,
described as follows:
Before the Temple of Ceres at Patras,
there was a fountain, separated from
the temple by a wall, and there was
an oracle, very truthful, not for
all events, but for the sick only.
The sick person let down a mirror,
suspended by a thread till its based
touched the surface of the water,
having first prayed to the goddess
and offered incense. Then looking
in the mirror, he saw the presage
of death or recovery, according as
the face appeared fresh and healthy,
or of a ghastly aspect.
Some sources define catoptromancy
to refer to divination by predicting
events by observing how a poppy flower
bud burns on hot coals.
The mirrored room in Waugh's home
and spiritual Voodoo Hoodoo Texas
home is set up to optimize psychological
effects such as a scrying trance.
Its key features are low light or
near-darkness, flickering light, and
a mirror. The dimness represents a
form of visual sensory deprivation,
a condition helpful to trance induction,
the undifferentiated color without
horizon producing the Ganzfeld effect,
a state of apparent "blindness".
The Ganzfeld experiment replicates
the conditions of a psychomanteum
where a state of trance may be induced
by a uniform field of vision. In the
way of strobe or flashing light, stimulus
is provided by indirect, moving light
in the psychomanteum. Flickering black
arts candles or lamp of the black
arts are sometimes recommended to
It is supposed the indeterminate
depth of the mirror’s darkness
allows Waugh's eyes to relax and become
unfocussed, a state that reduces alertness.
And Waugh uses this room on a daily
basis. I allow no one inside this
room ever since it's completion, it
is my world alone to scry the dead
in. My private hell and heaven in
one she tells.
"The only daily chore is cleaning
up the glass after each session and
making sure every thing shines and
reflects as it should and that's my
own personal purgatory," says
Waugh. ' And I am a real clean freak
you can ask everyone I know."
A ganzfeld experiment (from German
for “entire field”) is
a technique used in the field of parapsychology
to test individuals for extra-sensory
perception (ESP). It uses homogeneous
and un-patterned sensory stimulation
to produce an effect similar to sensory
Parapsychologists such as Dean Radin
say that ganzfeld experiments have
yielded results that deviate from
randomness to a significant degree,
and that these results present some
of the strongest quantifiable evidence
for telepathy to date.
Remote Viewing (RV) is the process
by which a person attempts to gather
information through paranormal means
on a remote target that is hidden
from physical view and typically separated
from the viewer at some distance,
and is a form of extra-sensory perception
The room Waugh feels is the best place
to practice remote viewing from.
At one time Waugh had a glass mirror
Coffin in which she would scry in.
but she felt it was not large enough
for her needs so in her new home she
had the large mirrored room made to
her specifications. The Glass Magic
Scrying Mirrored Coffin she only uses
and takes along with her when she
travels to investigation site now
a days only.
Waugh also has a room painted black
and another room painted white where
she practices Ceremonial Necromancy.
One of the best known practitioners
of the occult in Texas is of course
Lisa Lee Harp Waugh, she is a brilliant
Necromantic scholar. She is not only
a acountant and mathematician and
astronomer, but a master of maps and
navigation, and a scholar of alchemy,
religion, cipher writing, architecture
and science as well. Waugh has a huge
collection of books and manuscripts
ranging over diverse subjects, but
most on her particular area of interest-
the occult and Necromancy.
Waugh sees ghost and communicates
with them through many methods. The
crystal ball and the mirrored room
are her favorites. She paints daily
what she see on canvas so the visions
to her become real.
Waugh also practices Uromancy, this
is a form of divination, by reading
the bubbles in urine that form when
urinating in a pot or toilet. The
above painting was done from this
technique. Each day as I urinate I
get on my knees and stare into the
bowl to see what I see before I flush.
I also do this for the many guest
that come to my home with their urine.
I feel urine gazing is very important
and can show you many things even
Its origin can be found in medicine,
where examination of urine is used
as a diagnostic tool. As with many
forms of divination, the original
basis is extrapolated and exaggerated
to the extent that it is said that
the urine does not only give indications
of a person's health, but also foretells
" I will stare at a bowl or
just a metal jigger of urine for hours
at a time," Waugh tells. "And
even watch it as I flush to see if
any changes in the visions move, change
or become clearer." The painting
Below is called Jigger and was the
inspiration for her to star using
a jigger to see ghosts in. The image
came too her through a crystal ball.
And also Alomancy (from Greek halo,
'salt', and manteia, divination),
also called Adromancy, ydromancie,
idromancie, and halomancy, is an ancient
form of divination. Similar to many
other forms of divination, the diviner
casts salt crystals into the air and
interprets the patterns as it falls
to the ground or travels through the
air. The diviner can also interpret
patterns formed from the residue of
a salt solution as it evaporates in
the bowl. The exact interpretations
are unknown, but it probably follows
a similar method to aleuromancy.
Salt itself is often intertwined
with luck and some of this ancient
tradition can be seen in the superstitions,
such as perceived misfortune when
the salt cellar is overturned and
the custom of throwing salt over the
left shoulder for good luck.
She has also been known to gaze at
a large bowl of salt for hours as
visions appear and sometime pour hot
water in it.
AND REAL GHOST PREDICTIONS FOR 2008
Many spirits during
Necromantic rituals when they appear
often speak of times to come when
questioned. Some believe that ghosts
and otherworldly beings can step through
the fabric of time and space and bring
news of the unseen things to come.
All the predictions you will read
posted here have come to Waugh from
actual real spirits or ghost she has
contacted through Necromancy.
here to see predictions for
the year ahead.
"I am not a psychic
nor do I make predictions of future
events." "I only post these
things that the spirits tell me as
a early warning of impending disasters
or things people should be aware of."
"The reason for Necromancy is
to question these otherworldly guest
for answers." "And I do.
"Here I have posted many of their
answers to questions I have posed
to the future. I do not ask the Spirits
for any Personal Answers To Questions
... about Acts of God (Death), Health
or Pregnancy. "
In modern time necromancy is used
as a more general term to describe
the art (or manipulation) of death,
and generally implies a magical connotation.
Modern séances, channeling
and Spiritualism verge on necromancy
when the invoked spirits are asked
to reveal future events. Necromancy
may also be dressed up as sciomancy,
a branch of theurgic magic.
Necromancy is extensively practiced
in Quimbanda and is sometimes seen
in other African traditions such as
voodoo and in santeria, though once
a person is possessed by a spirit
in the yoruba tradition he cannot
rise to a higher spiritual position
such as that of a babalawo, but this
should not be regarded as a modern
tradition, in fact it predates most
The faces of the many ghosts Waugh
says are diverse in nature. From shiny
and bright happy ones to dim dark
and evil and frightened ones.
When you see the dead
in a crystal ball no matter how seasoned
of a scryer you are their are always
surprises. It's like watching a horror
movie sometimes. Faces pop up out
at you and startle you or gross scenes
of body parts and organs then a bright
happy face jumps in and makes you
jump. "Sometimes what I see makes
me want to close my eyes but I can't."
The Dead seem to be
very strange sometimes in appearance.
At others quite normal.
say if you stare at the Necromantic
Hexagram above at the bottom of
a bowl of water or urine you will
see ghosts also.
