"According to Catholic Theology Necromancy is the practice of talking to the dead. Usually for the purpose of divination." " For example a seance, Dumb Supper, Evocation or ritual spell or hex. The Holiest of all, The Blessed Bible Of God in Heaven explicitly forbids anyone to do the dark Black practice of necromancy." Says Waugh.

One of the best known practitioners of the occult in Elizabethan times was Dr. John Dee. Educated at Chantry School in Chelmsford and at Cambridge, he was a brilliant scholar. He was not only a mathematician and astronomer, but a master of maps and navigation, and a scholar of alchemy, religion, cipher writing, architecture and science as well. He had a huge collection of books and manuscripts ranging over diverse subjects, but most on his particular area of interest- the occult.

At the time of Edward VI, Dee became known in high circles around the king and spent time with his study and research, for he had a scientific mind, combined with the enquiring new spirit of the emerging Renaissance. However, his fortunes took a turn for the worse with the coming to power of Mary I, when he lost popularity and suffered charges of heresy which were however later dropped. It was under Elizabeth’s rule that John Dee returned to favour. She herself was interested in the occult, and was so impressed by Dee, that she traveled with her Court to see his great library.

When the Spanish Armada loomed at the English Channel, it was Dee who is believed to have advised the movement of the English fleet and anticipated the storm would destroy the Spanish fleet. Some have suggested that it was Dee himself who conjured up that storm. Dee’s knowledge of the natural world around us extended further. It was said by Francis Yates in The Theatre of the World that James Burbage consulted Dee and his magnificent library for the building of the Globe theatre in London. The Burbage tradition, according to Yates, was to amplify the voices of the players, using theories of geometrical resonance.

Dee openly professed to divine and his deep interest in the spirit world was a major factor in guiding his works and experiments. Edward Kelley, with whom Dee associated from 1582, remains a controversial character. Alchemist, apothecary and psychic medium, Kelley became a vital part of Dee’s later works and research into other dimensions.

One of John Dee’s most celebrated instruments for use as a practitioner was an obsidian mirror. It was a polished oval slab of black hue, which looked exactly like a black mirror. The mirror changed hands many times after the original owner John Dee and is currently at the British Museum in London.

John Dee’s ‘shew-stone’

† ¥ †

A ‘shew-stone’ is a highly reflective object used for esoteric practices. John Dee had two such objects which came from Aztec past- a spherical crystal ball and a black obsidian mirror. Though the former’s records are somewhat hazy, the latter rests today in a well guarded glass case in the British Museum in London. This treasured find of esoteric glamour is a highly polished obsidian mirror, brought back to Europe after the conquest of Mexico by Cortes. It was a part of the Aztec treasures brought back and singular in its occult significance. If one were to look into the historical and X past, it is a fact that mirrors were associated with the Aztec god Tezcatlipoca ,for rulers and sorcerers whose name can be translated to mean ‘Smoking Mirror’. Aztec priests would use mirrors for calling up visions and divination. They would also use these mirrors to foretell when Quetzacoatl, the bird-lord associated with magic and healing would return after long absence. In many temples dedicated to Quetzacoatl, the eyes of the images were fashioned out of obsidian. Among many ritual practices, obsidian blades were also used in autosacrifice.i.e. letting blood from oneself for ritualistic purposes. Interestingly, some researchers believe obsidian to be itself a sort of blood spouting forth from the earth. It would by that reasoning, have the strongest life force and transmit it to all it touched.

Dr. John Dee

 

A professional Necromancer and founder of the Sorcerers Guild of greater Houston, Texas. Waugh has been practicing and conducting rituals for many paranormal investigators for over 20 years. Waugh also paints many spiritual and common murals and lives in a small Texas town with her three dogs (Lucifersage, Malachi, Simmons).

She also over the years makes ceremonial candles and is active in ghost hunting in the deep South. Summoning the dead to communicate with the living is a natural daily occurrence for Waugh. "I have been doing this since I was a child." " When I lived in Galveston, Texas about 15 years ago, I was introduced to the ancient rights of ceremonial Necromancy as a ritual by a great shaman called Freebird, and because of him and his diligence to the art, I still practice it until this day." "However, if a spirit has something vital to impart to you, they will call upon you, not vice-versa and no ritual is needed".

Waugh began bone summoning and calling up the dead in Scottsville Cemetery, and Stage Coach Road at the age of 12 in Marshall, Texas. She and a close personal friend would do this regularly in years to come. Holding 3am seances and dumb suppers. Waugh kept this between herself and the lone friend Donny Socia so no one in Marshall ever knew of her late night talks with the Ghosts. Also she and Debbie Maycumber use to Go with waugh to call up ghosts at Powder Mill Cemetery. Ironically both Donny and Debbie died from being decapitated 2 years apart.

Her close friend Marnie Hebert use to come to talk to Waugh often. More so after she died. Also she spoke often to a ghost of her dearest friend Mike Muse who died of liver cancer. We were close friends when he was live but even closer since he is dead. Mike's ghosts told her tell his loved one to get his ashes away from the side of the bed. He'd rather be in his recliner.
She then Got involved with the local Hoodoo Voodoo's of the area and new doors where opened to her concerning communicating with the dead.

Waugh was baptized and trained in the secret dark religion by Bianca The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans. Waugh lived in New Orleans for 3 years until she learned all about spells, hex's and how to hoodoo voodoo people as she says.

Waugh also owned and managed the fantastic Smells Like What? Candle Making Company in Galveston, Texas for many years that catered to the eclectic patrons taste of many of the states visitors and just curious. She then moved to Houston's Famous Vodoun area 5th ward. This now where she resides to this day. Her home today is a testimony to Necromancy and her new found religion of Voodoo Hoodoo as of 1996.

Necromantic practitioners such as Waugh conducts, and entails respect and reverence not only for the spirits of the dead, but for the spirits of Hell, Heaven and all places in between. Waugh has a large home one room she has painted black where she calls the good spirits. Another painted all black where she calls the infernal spirits.

When practicing Necromancy caution must be taken every step of the way. You might call up what you might thin is a benevolent spirit but in truth it ight be one of Satan's evil minions. Early necromancy is likely related to shamanism, which calls upon spirits such as the ghosts of ancestors. Classical necromancers addressed the dead in "a mixture of high-pitch squeaking and low droning", comparable to the trance-state mutterings of shamans.

The historian Strabo refers to necromancy as the principal form of divination amongst the people of Persia (Strabo, xvi. 2, 39, ), and it is believed to also have been widespread amongst the peoples of Chaldea (particularly amongst the Sabians or star-worshipers), Etruria, and Babylonia. The Babylonian necromancers were called Manzazuu or Sha'etemmu, and the spirits they raised were called Etemmu.

Necromancy was widespread in Western antiquity with records of practice in Babylon, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The oldest literary account of necromancy is in Homer’s Odyssey (ca. 700 BCE). In the Odyssey (XI, Nekyia), Odysseus under the tutelage of Circe, a powerful sorceress, makes a voyage to Hades, the Underworld, in an effort to raise the spirits of the dead using spells which Circe has instructed (Ruickbie, 2004:24). His intention is to invoke and ask questions of the shade of Tiresias, in order to gain insight on the impending voyage home. Alas, he is unable to summon the spirit without the assistance of others. In Homer's passage, there are many references to specific rituals associated with necromancy; the rites must be done during nocturnal hours, and based around a pit with fire. In addition, Odysseus has to follow a specific recipe, which included using sacrificial animals blood for ghosts to drink, while he recites prayers to both the ghosts and gods of the underworld. Rituals, such as these, were common practices associated with necromancy, and varied from the mundane to the more grotesque. Rituals in necromancy involved magic circles, wands, talismans, bells, and incantations. Also, the necromancer would surround himself with morbid aspects of death, which often included wearing the deceased's clothing, consumption of unsalted, unleavened black bread and unfermented grape juice, which symbolized decay and lifelessness Necromancers even went as far as taking part in the mutilation and consumption of corpses. Rituals, such as these, could carry on for hours, days, even weeks leading up the summoning of spirits. Often these practices took part in graveyards or in other melancholy venues that suited specific guidelines of the necromancer. Additionally, necromancers preferred summoning the recently departed, citing that their revelations were spoken more clearly; this timeframe usually consisted of 12 months following the death of the body. Once this time period lapsed, necromancers would summon the deceased’s ghostly spirit to appear instead.

Although some cultures may have considered the knowledge of the dead to be unlimited, to the ancient Greeks and Romans, there is an indication that individual shades knew only certain things. The apparent value of their counsel may have been a result of things they had known in life, or of knowledge they acquired after death: Ovid writes of a marketplace in the underworld, where the dead could exchange news and gossip (Metamorphoses 4.444; Tristia 4.10.87–88).

 


REAL SPIRIT AND REAL GHOST PREDICTIONS

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. Please visit 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." Says Waugh.

"The reason for Necromany is to question these otherworldy 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. "

Waugh is also experimenting and using a Frank's Box to channel Spirits and some of the actual predictions.

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 necromantic practices.

MYTHOLOGY OF NECROMANCY

 of Necromancy The Baphomet, adopted symbol of some "Left-Hand Path".

There are also many references to necromancers, called "bone-conjurers", in the Bible. The Book of Deuteronomy (XVIII 9–12) explicitly warns the Israelites against the Canaanite practice of divination from the dead. This warning was not always heeded: King Saul has the Witch of Endor invoke the shade of Samuel using a magical amulet, for example. Later Christian writers rejected the idea that humans could bring back the spirits of the dead, and interpreted such shades as disguised demons, thus conflating necromancy with demon-summoning.

Proof for the common knowledge of necromancy and belief in its power is also evident in the New Testament. Others in the court believed Jesus to be Elijah, another deceased prophet. This account is written in Christian Canonical Scriptures, mainly the book of Mark, chapter 6:14-16. “King Herod heard about this, for Jesus' name had become well known. Some were saying, ‘John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him.’ Others said, ‘He is Elijah.’ And still others claimed, ‘He is a prophet, like one of the prophets of long ago.’ But when Herod heard this, he said, ‘John, the man I beheaded, has been raised from the dead!”

Caesarius of Arles (Kors and Peters, 48) entreats his audience to put no stock in any demons, or “Gods” other than the Christian God, even if the working of spells appears to provide benefit. He states that demons only act with divine permission, and permitted by God to test Christian people. Caesarius does not condemn man here; he only states that the art of necromancy exists, although it is prohibited by the bible.

The True Art of Scrying

Scrying can be an auto-deepening trance process that progresses in stages using tools such as a crystal ball, or other medium. Initially, the medium 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 (i.e. candlelight).

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 loop. 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 chosen medium.

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 "see."

Ancient Persia -- the Shahnama, a semi-historical epic work written in the late 10th century, gives a description of what was called the Cup of Jamshid, used in pre-Islamic Persia, which was used by wizards and practitioners of the esoteric sciences for observing all the seven layers of the universe.

Ancient Greeks and Celts practiced scrying using beryl, crystal, black glass, polished quartz, water, and other transparent or light catching bodies. Nostradamus is believed to have employed a small bowl of water as a scrying tool into which he gazed and received images of future events. Alchemists Edward Kelley and John Dee employed a form of scrying using a small crystal ball or shewstone - a piece of polished obsidion. The crystal ball and wax tablets used by Dee and Kelley are on display at the British Museum in London.

Scrying is the occult practice of using a medium, most commonly a reflective surface or translucent body, to aid perceived psychic abilities such as clairvoyance. The media often used to "see" are water, polished precious stones, crystal balls, or mirrors. Scrying, in this context, uses a "visual" process. There are some who believe the art of scrying is not limited to the use of "reflective" or "translucent" bodies only, but includes other media. Scrying has been used in many cultures as a means of seeing the past, present, or future; in this sense scrying constitutes a form of divination.

It is believed that this particular black obsidian mirror was used by Dee to communicate with the spirit world. Sir Horace Walpole had acquired the mirror in 1771, and had added a label to the case which referred to the mirror as the ‘Black Stone into which Dr Dee used to call his spirits…’. It is believed that it is to this mirror that Samuel Butler refers in the lines from ‘Hudibras’ where he writes -
Kelly did all his feats upon
The Devil’s looking-glass, a stone
Where, playing with him at bo-peep,
He solv’d all problems ne’er so deep.

The most darkest of all the infernal black arts is necromancy, the most ancient method of communication with the dead. For practicing this you are said to be damned for all times by God.

The art of raising the dead and controlling their spirits takes its name from Greek words meaning "dead" and "divination".

Apart from the occult significance attached to the obsidian mirror just by virtue of it belonging to John Dee, research and discoveries of more modern times show interesting facts. Obsidian is extrusive igneous rock, i.e. a rock of volcanic origin. It has been found by archaeological excavations to have been used as weapons, cutting tools and for ceremonial rituals. The presence of iron and magnesium can give natural obsidian a dark green to black colour. Obsidian is very similar to quartz in properties, but with an absence of the piezoelectric and optical properties associated with quartz, as it does not have its own crystal structure. In modern times, large obsidian mirrors ar being researched and used for purposes of astrophysics. Some present day astrologers believe black obsidian brings to the fore ones insecurities, fears and ego and can cleanse them and they advocate their use as meditation stones.

Dee remains as much a figure of controversy today as he was when Mary Tudor came to the throne. His magic and research both remain the subject of conflicting views and opinions of later researchers. I myself believe he was onto something pathbreaking. But then, maybe its just because we share an initial, a degree, professional occupations and occult interests.

Many medieval writers believed resurrection was impossible without the assistance of the Christian God. They translated the practice of divination as conjuring demons who took the appearance of spirits. The practice became known explicitly as demonic magic and was condemned by the Roman Catholic Church, (Kieckhefer 152). Though the practitioners of necromancy were linked by many common threads, there is no evidence that these necromancers were ever organized as a group.

Medieval necromancy is believed to be a synthesis of astral magic derived from Arabic influences and exorcism derived from Christian and Jewish teachings. Arabic influences are evident in rituals that involve moon phases, sun placement, day and time. Fumigation and the act of burying images are also found in both astral magic and necromancy. Christian and Jewish influences are found in the symbols and conjuration formulas used in summoning rituals. (Kieckhefer 165-166)

Practitioners were often members of the Christian clergy, though some nonclerical practitioners are recorded. In some instances, mere apprentices or those ordained to lower orders dabbled in the practice. They were connected by a belief in the manipulation of spiritual beings, (esp. demons), and magical practices. These practitioners were almost always literate and well educated. Most possessed basic knowledge of exorcism and had access to texts of astrology and demonology. Clerical training was informal and admission to universities was rare. Most were trained under apprenticeships and were expected to have a basic knowledge of Latin, ritual and doctrine. This education was not always linked to spiritual guidance and seminaries were almost nonexistent. This absence allowed some aspiring clerics to combine Christian rites with occult practices despite its condemnation in Christian doctrine. (Kieckhefer 153-154)

Medieval practitioners believed they could accomplish three things with necromancy: will manipulation, illusions, and knowledge. Will manipulation affects the mind and will of another person, animal, or spirit. Demons are summoned to cause various afflictions on others “to drive them mad, to inflame them to love or hatred, to gain their favor, or to constrain them to do or not do some deed,” (Kieckhefer, 158). Illusions involve reanimation of the dead, food and entertainment, or conjuring a mode of transportation. Knowledge is discovered through demons. Demons provide information on various things including identifying a criminal, finding items, or revealing future events.

The act of performing medieval necromancy usually involved magic circles, conjurations, and sacrifices as shown in the Munich Handbook. Circles were usually traced on the ground, though cloth and parchment were sometimes implemented. Various objects, shapes, symbols, and letters may be drawn or placed within that represent a mixture of Christian and occult ideas. Circles were believed to empower and protect what was contained within, including protecting the necromancer from the conjured demons. Conjuration is the method of communicating with the demons to enter the physical world. It usually employs the power of special words and stances to call out the demons and often incorporated the use of Christian prayers or biblical verses. These conjurations may be repeated in succession or repeated to different directions until the summoning is complete. Sacrifice was the payment for summoning. Though it may involve the flesh of a human being or animal, it could sometimes be as simple as offering a certain object. Instructions for obtaining these items were usually specific. The time, location, and method of gathering items for sacrifice could also play an important role in the ritual. (Kieckhefer, 159-162)

The rare confessions of those accused of Necromancy suggest that there was a range of spell casting and the related magical experimentation. It is difficult to determine if these details were due to their practices, as opposed to the whims of their interrogators. John of Salisbury is one of the first examples related by Kieckhefer, but as a Parisian ecclesiastical court record of 1323 shows, a “group who were plotting to invoke the demon Berich from inside a circle made from strips of cat skin,” were obviously participating in the church’s definition of “necromancy.” (Kieckhefer, 191)

Norse mythology also contains examples of necromancy (Ruickbie, 2004:48), such as the scene in the Völuspá in which Odin summons a seeress from the dead to tell him of the future. In Grógaldr, the first part of Svipdagsmál, the hero Svipdag summons his dead Völva mother, Gróa, to cast spells for him. In Hrólf Kraki's saga, the half-elven princess Skuld was very skilled in witchcraft (seiðr), and this to the point that she was almost invincible in battle. When her warriors fell, she made them rise again to continue fighting.

Herbert Stanley Redgrove claims that necromancy was one of three chief branches of medieval ceremonial magic, the others being black magic and white magic

An Encyclopedia of Occultism states:

The art is of almost universal usage. Considerable difference of opinion exists among modern adepts as to the exact methods to be properly pursued in the necromantic art, and it must be borne in mind the necromancy, which in the Middle Ages was called sorcery, shades into modern spiritualistic practice. There is no doubt, however, that necromancy is the touchstone of occultism, for if, after careful preparation the adept can carry through to a successful issue, the raising of the soul from the other world, he has proved the value of his art.

The terms afterlife or life after death refer to the continuation of existence of the soul, spirit or mind of a human (or animal) after physical death, typically in a spiritual or ghostlike afterworld. Deceased persons are usually believed to go to a specific region or plane of existence in this afterworld, often depending on the rightness of their actions during life. Some believe the afterlife includes some form of preparation for the soul to be transferred to another body (reincarnation). The major views on the afterlife derive from religion, esotericism and metaphysics. There are those who are skeptical of the existence of the afterlife, or believe that it is absolutely impossible, such as the materialist-reductionists, who state that the topic is supernatural, therefore does not really exist or is unknowable.

LISA LEE HARP WAUGH AND THE REAL VOICES OF THE DEAD

The dead speak in many tones. If you listen to EVP's and hear the sounds and many voices you know they all sound different . It seems some ghosts or spirits use normal sounds in any given area to make their words heard.

Many now a days use a form of Frank"s Box or similar Necromantic equiment.

I have personally a Frank's Box knock off that someone made for me and have been experimenting with it recently.

"The spirits that come when called or sometimes familiar to me and come and visit from the other side on a regular basis." The same spirits are now vocalizing on a Frank's Box I am experimenting with at this time." Tells Waugh. " I do a Ritual Of Necromancy then go back and review the tapes film and video." "And have been quite surprised to not only have one spirits in the room and one on the Frank's box carrying on a conversation between each other."

Frank's spirit receiver starts off with a standard white noise generator which is fed through a random voltage circuit of Frank's own design. The random voltage is linked to an AM radio receiver which reacts to the voltage by tuning to a specific spot on the radio dial. This is known as voltage tuning and is a common function of late 80s and early 90s radio receivers. Though various radio stations are turned in for a split second every so often along with regular static, the devices also allows the spirits to interact with the device and create their own vocals through the receiver and for lack of a better term, talk through the device.

A newer version of the box simply tunes back and fourth through the AM band which Frank is calling the "Sweep"method. At first, he believed that the random voltage design is what allowed it to work but after using the sweep method, he has since changed his mind as it seems to do a better job. Frank has made his plans available on the Internet for anyone who is interested in experimenting with his device. He also makes available his own receiver plans for those who want to take it a step further and create the entire box from start to finish.

Frank has created at least 30 versions of the box to date and handed them to several individuals for ongoing tests. The initial results have been pretty positive and many people have experienced some kind of communication which they would regard as evidence that the box really works. Unfortunately, the difficult part about Frank's design is his using the AM radio band as the medium for receiving the voices. This is one fact that makes it easy for any skeptic to debunk the operation of his device. For starters, the device will receive little snippets from various radio stations as it scans through the AM band. At any given minute the device could spew some various words from passing stations that could be put together as a sentence and claimed to be from a spirit when in fact its just audio matrixing. Another possible scenario includes a few parts from Radio Shack and a couple of minutes of assembly could yield a small yet powerful enough transmitter to broadcast over the AM band and inject various words and phrases into the box directly. Definite care should be taken when operating the device to ensure the above scenarios are not part of the equation. Using recorders and other tools, such as an EMF detector, can help legitimize the results. EMF detectors should be placed far enough away as not to cause interference with the box or produce false readings on the detector itself.

For many years Waugh worked exclusively with the talented Medium Yvonne Brown until she moved to Miami, Florida for her health.

Waugh has also worked her Nercomantic pratice with Gina Lanier in investigating a real Texas haunted prison and hopes to work with Lanier again in the near future. And also withPARANOMAL EXPERT Craig Bottoms, AND the Great Mickey Of Miami in Florida investigating Hoodoo Voodoo Practices in the deep south.
