From The News: It's Ghost Season in Japan - Who You Gonna Call? - How can one stop being haunted by ghosts? In the Christianized West, holy water and crosses may help ward off ghosts, but they won't keep their Japanese counterparts, buried under Shinto or Buddhist rites, at bay. Instead, "ofuda" strips inscribed with Buddhist sutras are believed to be effective in keeping evil spirits away. Some Shinto shrines also provide "oharai," a purification ritual that removes bad omens with wooden wands and chants. -- Japan Times

By Raggse J. McConnell

According to long centuries old tradition, the Hungry Ghost Month is a very evil time - which began August 1 in the western calendar of every year- On this day the locked shut the gates of the underworld open wide and fiercely, allowing real Spooks, specters and real evil angry ghosts to enter the world of mortals.

At the end of the month, tradition holds the ghosts return to the underworld and the gates are slammed shut. But many ghosts do so much damage in this short time lives are ruined forever. But wait, don't you know some Hungry ghosts can move in and never leave.

Oh... No! It's the most haunted month of the year!

When August 1st rolls around each year be afraid be very afraid! The ghosts that can to your home have many tricks up their shrouded sleeves. From pesky Womb ghosts to deadly anal spooks ( Also See: " Womb Ghosts --- A Womb With A Boo!" here) your life can be in serious trouble. And if your a paranormal investigator you might be at a higher risk because many ghosts know who you are and most likely where you live.

None of this is a joke by any means. August has always been the month when it seems lifeless ghost gain more energy. Haunting that have laid dormant gain strength. And all paranormal mayhem breaks loose in the world of the living.

A Few Ways to Keep The Ghosts Away

Turn your dormant completely around. The part that faces in should be facing the outside of the house. especially effective if your doormat says welcome. Some have been known to take the doormat away for the entire month, or stop using the front door if you can and use another entrance. Even climbing in a window. Many will even go to the extreme of blocking the front door or all doors with furniture and items inside and out.

American Witches and those around the world often wear special pentagrams blessed in october from a special ritual just for this purpose, this month to only scare away Hungry Ghosts. The symbol is drawn on parchment sealed in wax and worn in a locket of silver.

Pentagram  Hexegram To protect you from  Real HungryGhosts

Smudging is always a good way as is a House blessing. Also Voodoo's in New Orleans make a special Zombie bottle that frightens away visiting ghosts. the bottled zombie must be caught on a friday from a fresh grave. The zombie ghosts is then told that he will not be set free unless he keeps all other ghosts away from the house the entire month of August.

To stop anal ghosts it is good to purge your self once a week the entire month so one does not roost in your booty. Anal ghost can be a nasty problem and you too soon will never forget the haunted experience.

Another good cure to keep a anal ghost from effecting a man is to only eat hot 10 spicy peppers with each meal for the entire month. A woman who does not want a womb ghosts should wear a fresh sanitary napkin the entire month or a pad. Of course this will trick any ghosts that wants to infest her womb that she is on her monthly cycle and they will leave you alone.

Those of you who live outside of Korea have perhaps never heard of "fan death" even though it kills thousands of people every year. Especially in the month of August. Some believe it is caused by the chill of the dead recurring in the month of August to take back souls so the ghost that were let loose can stay in this world and the newly dead will take their place in hell.

Never color your hair in August many believe that dying away grey hairs makes Hungry Ghost think you are younger then what you are. Hungry Ghosts do not effect people over 65 because they know they are one step from the grave.

Necromancer Lisa Lee Harp Waugh tells us that she does not practice Necromancy for the entire month of August. She states that the supremacies of over powering and too many ghost to handle happens every August. Waugh believes it has something to do with the heat and magnetic waves of the season. " I usually hang a wreath of Voodoo-Hoodoo Origin, and a powerful Gris-Gris Hex to ward off the hungry dead, on my front door." "I have done this for to many years to count." "It' like the old trick of hanging a mans Tie or hat or scarf on the outside door Knob." " It tells the Ghosts that you are not accepting company." Said Waugh.

Fan Death

Fan death is a South Korean urban legend which states that an electric fan, if left running overnight in a closed room, can cause the death (by suffocation, poisoning, or hypothermia) of those inside. Fans manufactured and sold in Korea are equipped with a timer switch that turns them off after a set number of minutes, which users are frequently urged to set when going to sleep with a fan on.

The Korea Consumer Protection Board (KCPB), a South Korean government-funded public agency, issued a consumer safety alert in 2006 warning that "asphyxiation from electric fans and air conditioners" was among South Korea's five most common seasonal summer accidents or injuries, according to data they collected. Also included among the five hazards were air conditioner explosions, and sanitation issues, including food poisoning and opportunistic pathogens harbored in air conditioners. According to the KCPB:

"If bodies are exposed to electric fans or air conditioners for too long, it causes bodies to lose water and [causes] hypothermia. If directly in contact with [air current from] a fan, this could lead to death from [the] increase of carbon dioxide saturation concentration and decrease of oxygen concentration. The risks are higher for the elderly and patients with respiratory problems. From 2003 [to] 2005, a total of 20 cases were reported through the CISS involving asphyxiations caused by leaving electric fans and air conditioners on while sleeping. To prevent asphyxiation, timers should be set, wind direction should be rotated and doors should be left open."

Research suggests that fan use may be a contributing factor in heat-related deaths such as fatal cases of hyperthermia. A U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association advises that "although the use of fans may increase comfort at temperatures less than 90°F (less than 32.2°C), fans are not protective against heatstroke when temperatures reach greater than or equal to 90°F (greater than or equal to 32.2°C) and humidity exceeds 35%,"[ and provides a similar but simpler warning to the public on their web site. These temperature and humidity conditions are consistent with a death cited in an earlier article critical of fan death, which suggested that fan use was irrelevant.

Texts on industrial hygiene and ventilation will describe conditions when the use of a fan will increase a worker's heat load. Those conditions include very high temperatures found in foundries and similar industries like heat treating metals. Similar problems occur with high heat and high humidity.

A 2007 meta-analysis of studies on heat wave-related deaths explains that "a fan induces air movement that increases evaporation and lowers skin temperature, but in warm environments increased wind speeds of hot air can actually raise the skin temperature and thus produce opposite results by increasing core body temperature."The study concludes that definitive recommendations on fan use require further study.

An analysis of risk factors contributing to 700 "excess deaths" during a 1995 Chicago, Illinois, heat wave found no evidence that fans either increased or decreased mortality, but noted that "interpretation of the data on the use of fans is complicated by the need to take into account specific environmental factors (for example, whether the fan is used in a room with an open or a closed window) and the health status of individual subjects." Fear of crime was cited as a factor in people keeping windows and doors locked shut.

Only in the month of August are ghosts given such great power around the world. Ghosts that use to live in your home as living people may return after they have died. Strange ghosts may come to your home and break appliances and vehicles only because they are unhappy you live in their old house and what you have done to it.

A Real Ghost In A Bottle

In New Orleans select Voodoo's place many bottles with open tops on their front porches, steps and at any place that enters the home each day they are filled with a good dark rum every night at 3:AM these bottles are corked or shut and buried before dawn. new bottles are put in their place. This goes on the entire month of August in the Crescent City. And each bottle contains a real captured Hungry Dead ghost. Since they might be lost family members they are taken care of with a voodoo traditional bury the dead ritual. Bianca the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans says that some homes backyards might contain hundreds upon hundreds of such ghost filled bottles in just one month. "So if you live in New Orleans, Never dig in a Yard unless you know where the bottles are buried." If not your Doomed to be haunted by thousands of hundreds of Hungry Ghosts the rest of your life!"
