Visiting Hungry Ghost Month
family ghost are expected to do what is best
for the whole of society even if it will disadvantage
themselves. Tradition is seen as extremely
important to society and maintenance of tradition
is expected of all real ghosts that have the
powers this month to come and haunt us for
each long day. The family is seen as the mechanism
by which tradition is preserved. This holds
true in whatever country or religion or beliefs
in ghost you might have.
August around the world
is when the dead seem to return in haunted
hordes to scrutinize, correct and sometimes
wreck our lives. If a family ghost does not
like who we are married to or dating they
will certainly break up your relationship.
If they don't like how a family memeber is
being they will teach them a hard lesson.
And if you are a really bad person they will
surely find the means to take you back to
hell with them.
Ghosts of pets and animals
that we have owned are said to return to us
also. If a new animal or live pet is now living
in your home and a ghost pet comes to visit
and see's you have replaced them the new pet
may day before the months end or run away.
Dogs are said to be howling
the entire month and their restlessness grows.
Dogs ten to get very spooked and tense from
the 13th of August to the last day of the
Hungry Ghost Month ghosts
Cats are said to be the bringers of the dead.
When you see a home, a cemetery, or a location
with many cats (over a dozen or more in one
place at one time.)near it this might just
be the portal of the other world where the
dead do arrive from. If you find this then
this where the haunted gates will or are open
for the dead to travel through at will! Some
call them the Gates to Hell, Others: Gate
of the Dead, Shaking Gates of God, The Black
Doors of the Netherworld, The Portal of the
afterworld, Or just "The Ghost Gate"
In some locations they are
known as the Acrch of the lost hungry Souls,
The Seven Gates Of Hell, The backdoor to Hell,
The Ghost Vortex, The Devils Pipeline, The
Ghost Hole and the Window to Hells deepest
Pit. What every you might call it in your
own locale the traditional name is usually
Haunted August the month of Hungy Ghosts.
Many in Louisiana or memeber's
in Afro-Caribbean syncretistic religions like
Voodoo, Umbanda, Quimbanda and Santería,
drawings are also used as amulets, such as
with the veves of Voodoo; these religions
also take into account the color of the candles
they light, because each color features a
different effect of attraction or repulsion
to certain ghosts.
Perfumes and essences (like incense, myrrh,
etc.) also serve the purposes of attraction
or repulsion. Popular legends often attributed
magical Ghost protection powers to certain
unusual objects, such as a baby's caul, a
chicken bone that has been cleaned by ants
or a rabbit's foot; possession of these items
allegedly endowed their magical abilities
to keep evil ghosts and spirits at bay or
stop bad things from happening upon their
owners. When the haunted cemetery gates, the
secret Gates of Guinee open all hell and the
dead or let loose.
The exact location of the haunted cemetery
gates isn't really ever told to outsiders
of the Secret Societies. New Orleans Tour
Guides and Haunted Cemetery or ghost tours
will skirt around the issue, or just look
at you like they don't know what your talking
about, so never mention it (seriously). They
say just to talk about the accursed cemetery
gates spells doom to those that ask or search
for it or speak of it openly to anyone.
Many believe that the gates to the other
world or portal is actually a large white
mausoleum. Once upon entering it you will
be forever trapped in the unholy world of
the voodoo spirits and the dead. Those who
know ... feel it is inviting them , "The
Ghede" to take you away. Only someone
pure of heart with only one burning question
to be answered by the dead is ever told the
whole truth. If you are so unlucky to cross
the threshold of these gates legend tells,
then you are taken alive to the otherworld
forever trapped but you do not die you become
imortal. You then become one of the truly
undead! Many say this is what happened to
Marie Laveau I, Sanite Dede, Dr. John and
many notable Voodoo leaders that just simply
disappeared off of the face of the earth.
(They passed unseen to the other side whole
in body and mind to live imortal.)
A unnamed New Orleans Voodoo priestess says
quite bluntly, search and you shall find them
rusted shut, or worse they will certainly
find you and be wide and opened. Its primary
goal is to both enlighten and bridge the worlds
of the dead and the living, considered the
most sacred and the profane. The gates she
says are sometimes those to a large Mausoleum
that you enter. Inside you will see stairs
leading up and down. No one who has gone and
further then that has ever come back to tell
what is above or below on the other side.
Marie Laveau the first is the only person
who is said to be able to cross over back
and forth between the two world because she
was so powerfully a Voodoo Queen. But she
is only allowed to be in our world on 5 or
6 days of the year. Those days being -- Christmas
Day, New Year's Day, Fat Tuesday, Carnival
or New Orleans Mardi Gras day, All Saints'
Day, or All Souls' Day, St. Johns Eve and
her birthday. But the month of august the
gates appear and swing open randomly. sometimes
letting out hundreds of thousands of souls
and sucking in before they close those that
may stand to close to them.
"Real Voodoo Immortality has it's price."
" You never die but you are no longer
in the world of the living." Says Reese
Smith. "To find the voodoo gates for
eternal life one needs only to listen."
"Inside or behind the gates there can
be heard a strange sound, the rhythmic deep
beat drums beckoning you to come to the threshold
of a large old mausoleum." " It
many be the Ghost of Your own Grand Mother
Or Father that appear to you but their purpose
might be harmful to your very life."

What to do when the Ghosts
of Hungry Ghost Month come to call on you!
Some sites, old houses and notably cemeteries,
underground tunnels and old battlefields,
generate many hungry ghost month ghost sightings.
Widely known folklore has it that ghosts are
most likely to appear between 2 and 3 a.m.,
the "time of the three oxes." Or
"the Hour of the Devil." It has
also been called "Dead Time" By
New Orleans Voodoo's.
Most in New Orleans will set their clocks
to wake them At 5 minutes to 3:AM they will
stay awake for the one hour period each night
of August. Alone sitting by their froont door
and another family memeber at the back door
with only one light black voodoo- hoodoo candle
in the kitchen. Toilet lid closed and all
pipes and sink drains closed tight so a hungry
ghost family memeber cannot enter their home.
The Galveston Ghost fearing Voodoo Community
also does this ritual but with a real Texas
twist. They sometimes have been known to sit
their youngest child or grand child in the
front room of their homes with the front door
wide open. They feel that if an family memeber
ghost comes to call. they see the innocent
child their awake waiting for them. And leave
because they know this child does not need
to see them or die. The rest of the family
do the candle spell in the rest of the house.
This is said to work well if the child is
6 months to 3 years old only.
In California Hungry ghosts are often warded
off by hanging wind chimes made of chicken
bones. The idea is that ghosts see this and
realize that you mean business. The bones
show that you are not afraid of the dead and
they should fear you.
In the lonely haunted mountains of Tennessee
and North Carolina to ward off the many malevolent
ghosts of August. Mountain Magic dictates
that you tie a live goat outside your door.
If in the morning the goat is gone or dead
then that was meant for you. The rest of the
month you must leave food offerings outside
your door so they do not come and exact their
evil revenge on you.
In the state of Florida mainly Miami, Voodoo's
will light candles and place them out side
their front doors at midnight to dawn. Next
to the blessed voodoo or Santeria Candle they
will leave a plate of beans and a freshly
cooked chicken. This they do each night of
the month of August to ward off any harm and
Hungry Ghost Month Spirit that might want
to take of residence in their home.
In Salem, Massachusetts The month of August
ghosts are warded off by placing a large pentagram
on the front and back door. With charged wiccan
holy water a Pentagram of Protection is drawn
with the little finger of the left hand on
every payne of glass. Chimneys are blocked
inside and out. And drains and toilets are
plugged when not in use.

O-fuda is a gofu or a talisman
issued by Shinto shrine. It may also be called
shinpu . It is made by inscribing the name
of a kami, the name of Shinto shrine, or a
representative of kami on a strip of paper,
wood, cloth, or metal.
It is to be renewed yearly, typically before
the end of a year, and attached to a door,
pillar, or ceiling. It may also be placed
inside a private shrine (kamidana). It is
believed to protect the family in residence
from general harms such as disease. A more
specific o-fuda may be placed near particular
objects such as one for kitchen to protect
from accidental fire. A popular o-fuda called
Jingu Taima or simply Taima is issued by Ise
Shrine. It is made from hemp cloth but it
should be noted that use of hemp as a clothing
material was common from antiquity and no
spiritual quality is assigned to its potential
A portable form of o-fuda, commonly called
Omamori is typically given out wrapped in
a small bag made of decorated cloth. This
originates from Buddhism, but was subsequently
adopted by Shinto. Both Buddhist temples and
Shinto shrines give out these omamori. While
an o-fuda is said to protect a whole family,
an omamori allegedly offers support for personal
O-fuda in Japanese folklore and works of
fiction such as in modern manga and anime,
has a more specific appearance and meaning.
In this context an o-fuda is a small piece
of paper that has holy or magical spells,
symbols or writing written on it, either by
a powerful priest, sorcerer, or miko. An o-fuda
is usually a talisman or even an outright
weapon against those with evil or harmful
intent such as demons or oni. The exact interpretation
varies depending on the author or artist.
Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O-fuda"
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.
An amulet ( [Pliny], meaning "an object
that protects a person from trouble"),
a close cousin of the talisman (from Arabic
tilasm, ultimately from Greek telesma or from
the Greek word "talein" which means
"to initiate into the mysteries")
consists of any object intended to bring good
luck and/or protection to its owner. Potential
amulets include: gems or simple stones, statues,
coins, drawings, pendants, rings, plants,
animals, etc.; even words said in certain
occasions—for example: vade retro satana—(Latin,
"go back, Satan"), to repel evil
or bad luck.
Amulets and talismans vary considerably according
to their time and place of origin. In many
societies, religious objects serve as amulets.
A religious amulet might be the figure of
a certain god or simply some symbol representing
the deity (such as the cross for Christians
or the "eye of Horus" for the ancient
Egyptians). In Thailand one can commonly see
people with more than one Buddha hanging from
their necks; in Bolivia and some places in
Argentina the god Ekeko furnishes a standard
amulet, to whom one should offer at least
one banknote to obtain fortune and welfare.

Have The Dead
Spoken To You Lately?
Author of 49 books about history, hauntings
and the unexplained in America for Whitechapel
Press and Barnes & Noble Press respectively.
He is the founder and president of the “American
Ghost Society”, a national network of
ghost hunters that collects stories of ghost
sightings and haunted houses and uses investigative
techniques to track down evidence of the supernatural.
Taylor was born on September 24, 1966 in
Decatur, Illinois, a Midwestern city that
is steeped in legend and lore. Even the hospital
in which he was born is allegedly haunted
by a phantom nun! He grew up fascinated with
“things that go bump in the night”,
as well as the writings of haunted travel
writer Richard Winer and legendary ghost hunter,
Harry Price. In school, Taylor was well-known
for his interest in the paranormal and often
took friends on informal ghost tours of haunted
places all over downstate Illinois. He would
later turn this interest into his full-time
In 1989, Taylor started working in a bookstore
and a few years later, he wrote his first
book on ghosts. It was called Haunted Decatur
and delved into the ghosts and hauntings of
the city where he grew up. He also created
a tour that took guests to places that he
had written about in the book. The book became
an immediate success and its popularity, along
with his previous experiences with ghost hunting,
established Taylor as an authority on the
supernatural. The book and tour led to media
and public appearances and numerous requests
to investigate ghostly phenomena.
In 1996, Taylor organized a group of ghost
enthusiasts into an investigation team and
the American Ghost Society was launched, gained
over 600 members in the years that followed.
The organization continues today as one of
America’s largest and most honored research
In 1998, Taylor moved his operations, which
now included the American Ghost Society, a
history and hauntings bookstore and a publishing
company called Whitechapel Press, to Alton,
Illinois, near St. Louis. In Alton, Taylor
started his second tour company, Alton Hauntings,
which took guests to local haunted places
in the small Mississippi River town. He would
go on to put the place on the map as “one
of the most haunted small towns in America.”
