a Great Sense of humor helps when
your a real life Necromancer. Lisa
Lee Harp Waugh gives the world an
inside look at her Paranormal endeavors,
her life with growing up in a small
Texas town being haunted. And of course
what spooks, spirits and other worldly
beings she intends to call up in her
Waugh isn't just a ghost hunter,
she openly communicates with the dead.
She does this by using tried and true
rituals handed down through the generations
from biblical times. Dressed in long
white flowing robes this Texas native
calls up spirits ghosts, Angels, and
all the inhabitants from the other
worlds beyond the grave. She asks
them questions and gets answers.
Waugh has set up her very own Paranormal
Investigation web site The Ghost Hunters
Of America (www.ghosthuntersofamerica.com).
As a well salted investigator she
has ventured into some pretty haunted
areas in her life. From becoming a
high ranking member of a secret Galveston,
Texas Voodoo Society , to investigating
a real Haunted Federal Prison with
Ghost Hunter Paranormal Investigator
from New Orleans, Gina Lanier (www.ginalanier.com).
Over the years Waugh believes that
no area of what people consider otherworldly,
paranormal or just plain strange,weird
or Ghostly should be investigated.
During the past four decades Waugh
has scoured haunted cemeteries, funeral
homes, accident scenes and some very
scary haunted locations in the great
states bordering Texas. But she loves
all that is related too Haunting's
in Texas, Texas Ghosts, Texas Ghost
Stories and all Texas Ghost Photos
perk her interest. In fact she even
lived near a real Texas ghost town
and did several necromantic rituals
their with some pretty startling revelations
"Growing up in Marshall, Texas
they use to find a lot of dead bodies,"
says Waugh. " Mostly murdered
people and strange deaths." "My
close friends use to hold seances
to try to contact them to try to solve
their murders." " This is
when and where the bug for researching
the paranormal first bit me."
Marshall, Texas is a city of the
northeastern region of the U.S. state
of Texas. It is a major cultural and
educational center in East Texas,
and the multi-state Ark-La-Tex region.
When speaking to Waugh her comments
are often filled with her signature
humor " I got that from my family,
says Waugh, growing up in Texas and
believing that you can communicate
with ghosts you need a great sense
of humor to get out of very sticky
situations and conversations. "
The city of Marshall was a political
and production center of the Confederacy
during the Civil War, and was a major
railroad center of the T&P Railroad
from the late 19th century until the
mid-20th century. The city's large
African American population and the
presence of black institutions of
higher learning made Marshall a center
of the civil rights movement in the
South. And of course next to Galveston
it is considered the second Most Haunted
City in Texas. Waugh believes and
says, that's what originally made
her move to Galveston. Her destiny..
and The Ghosts!
This tells waugh is why ghosts have
always been a part of her life. She
says she remembers her first encounters.
I WAS ABOUT
4 YEARS OLD OR 5, SITTING
OUTSIDE DIGGING IN THE YARD.
A LITTLE GIRL WAS PLAYING
WITH ME, WE WERE HAVEING A
GOOD TIME. HER NAME WAS SARAH.
AND MY LITTLE DOG THAT I HAD
WAS HAVEING A FIT, BARKING
AND GROWLING. MY MOTHER CAME
OUTSIDE AND ASKED ME WHAT
WAS WRONG. I SAID THAT ME
AND SARAH WERE PLAYING AND
TIP, MY DOG WOULDN'T LEAVE
US ALONE. MY MOTHER SAID,
THERE IS NO LITTLE GIRL HERE,
AND SURE ENOUGH, THERE WAS
NO SARAH THERE. JUST MY DOG.
AND FROM THAT DAY ON, I SAW
PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT THERE,
AND TALKED TO THEM.

Once she became aware of seeking
out ghosts or them seeking her out
it was on Wiley Avenue and the second
was on Grand Ave. (US 80) not far
from where she lived. The ghosts where
just there as real as people she tells.
Then they just disappeared before
The city Of Marshall Texas is well
known for holding one of the largest
light festivals in the United States,
the Wonderland of Lights. Each year
The Wonderland of Lights in Marshall
is one of the largest Christmas celebrations
in the US and attracts tourists both
from the US and other countries. The
Festival of Lights and Christmas Festival
in Natchitoches was started in 1927,
making it one of the oldest Light
Festivals in the US. The largest city.
Candle light tours of historic haunted
homes are popular attractions in.
Kilgore suspends Christmas lights
from oil derricks in the World's Richest
Acre District. And you can find Waugh
there with the glee of a child enjoying
the decorations and hunting out a
ghost or two as always.
"I always want to go back one
day and investigate the many ghosts
at Starr Family Mansion in Marshall.
" " Also much of Locust
St is haunted, and the area in and
around East Texas baptist university
is full pf ghosts. " Waugh states.
The Roots To Becoming
A Texan Necromancer
Waugh read every book she could find
in the 1970's, from books on witchcraft,
to Demons and Angels. It wasn't until
the late 70's that she met a real
Necromancer named Freebird in Galveston
Texas that she knew what area intrigued
her the most about the spirit world
and Demonology." I enjoyed seances
at the time growing up," says
Waugh. " But I never put stock
in Ouija Boards and and table tipping
until Freebird came into my life."
Freebird was a man of strange means,
a Houston, Texas native and a hippy
vagabond that had traveled the world
in search of what Waugh thought of
at the time as downright sensational.
" I always wanted to delve deeper
in to the occult I thought but with
my upbringing I was adverse to witchcraft."
But I was captivated by the Occult
sciences of Calling the dead, and
communicating with the unknown."
Freebird was adept at this and saw
in me the neophyte yearning for greater
and deeper spiritual enlightenment."
A photo of Lisa Lee
Harp Waugh with what many paranormal
Investigators call spirits or ghost
around he,r or is it just a real actual
ghostly halo that this Texan Necromancer
happens to have! Many say she is the
reincarnation of John Dee, Waugh does
not confirm or deny this. A few even
liken resemblance to his minus the
Free bird was in his late 50's at
the time and as many of the period
or in mid life, was in search of someone
earnest and honest in beliefs to impart
his great learned wisdom upon. The
fates just happened to put Waugh in
the right place at the right time.
"Freebird taught me many things
in the years of our associations."
"From how to call up spirits
with rituals, to invoking and banishing
rituals common in Demonology and the
works of Aleister Crowley ( Aleister
Crowley was perhaps the most controversial
and misunderstood personality to figure
in the new era of modern day witchcraft.)
and the famed John Dee (a noted English
mathematician, astronomer, astrologer,
geographer, occultist, and consultant
to Queen Elizabeth I. He also devoted
much of his life to alchemy, divination,
and Hermetic philosophy.) ."
"Freebird impressed me greatly
with his psychic and paranormal abilities
and knowledge of necromancy."
He and I would go to Galveston Cemeteries
late at night and call up spirits
to appear much like John Dee and Edward
Kelly's association in 1582.
Dee's first attempts at calling u
the dead were not satisfactory, but,
in 1582, he met Edward Kelley.
Dee took Kelley into his service
and began to devote all his energies
to his supernatural pursuits. These
or "actions" were conducted
with an air of intense Christian piety,
always after periods of purification,
prayer and fasting. Dee was convinced
of the benefits they could bring to
mankind. (The character of Kelley
is harder to assess: some have concluded
that he acted with complete cynicism,
but delusion or self-deception are
not out of the question. Kelley's
"output" is remarkable for
its sheer mass, its intricacy and
its vividness.) Dee maintained that
the angels laboriously dictated several
books to him this way, some in a special
angelic or Enochian language.
"The First time I saw a real
spirit rise from a grave Freebird
had to do all that he could to keep
me from panicking to the point of
hysteria and leaving the magical circle
I was inside of for my protection...".
Relates Waugh with a fevered pitch
in her strong Texas drawl. "
But I was really whole heartedly intrigued
and wanted to be able too do this
for myself." " I had hunted
ghost before but until this time had
never witnessed a full body apparition
or communicated with a spirit eye
to eye before."
Over the years until Freebird's tragic
fiery death, Waugh learned many things
about the practice of Necromancy.
" The man was genius except when
it came to cooking he set his house
on fire and almost took out a Galveston
neighborhood in doing such."
" I called on his ghost to communicate
with me about a year after he died
." To my surprise he said he
was making me a birthday cake when
the oven exploded." Tearfully
tells Waugh. " I miss him but
I do not call upon him to talk to
me except when I need his mentoring."
Necromancy In A Texas
As a professional Necromancer and
founder of the Sorcerers Guild of
greater Houston and Galveston, Texas.
Waugh has been practicing and conducting
rituals for many paranormal investigators
for over 20 years. " I have to
get to know the investigator well
before I will conduct the ritual to
call ghost in front of them."
People need to be schooled as I was
in what you can do and how you can
question the dead before they attempt
this." Many rules apply to the
actual rituals and every thing should
be done to perfection." "
one slip up and the consequences could
Waugh also paints many spiritual
works of art focusing on the Ghosts
and spirits that appear before her.
Her painting are done with interesting
detail;s and emotions. Many people
are investing in owning an original
Waugh these days. Many say all carry
an aura of what is truly haunted.
" One painting I did is said
to be haunted, until others come forward
and tell their tales of my artwork
who can say that others are not spirit
possessed like that one." Says
Waugh. She also does many common murals
and lives in a small Texas town with
her three dogs. She also over the
years makes ceremonial candles and
is active in ghost hunting in the
deep South with 5 different organizations.
Summoning the dead to communicate
with the living is a natural daily
occurrence for Waugh.
" I love taking Ghost Tours
like Dash Beardsley's Ghost Tour Of
Galveston Island, Texas when ever
I am there." "I have witnessed
many ghost on his tour over the years.
" I think because of my many
years as a practicing Necromancer
spirits and ghost now openly try to
communicate with me where ever I am."
Says Waugh. " Beardsley's Tour
is one of the best in the country
and I suggest when in Texas take the
tour you might meet a ghost face to
face Like I did!"
Waugh says she conducts ceremonies
at least 3- 4 times a week."
Sometimes in my home others and more
often outdoor." Says Waugh, weather
permitting of course. " I question
these spirits on many things"
. " From personal questions about
them and from where they come to questions
of what they say the future will hold."
I have gathered many predictions for
years to come and post them on my
web site." Please
