The Hungry Ghosts Are Out for Chinese Ghost Month. Don’t Let Them Follow You Home!

This year Ghost Month falls in August. In most Asian traditions, the seventh lunar month is the time when the barriers between our world and the spirit world, all but dissapear and ghosts are free to wander among us. During this month, from July 27-August 24 (Lunar seventh month)—fair warning!—avoid buying a house, getting married, moving, making big business decisions, going to funerals and visiting the sick. This isn’t just a fanciful out-of-fashion tradition in Asia. Millions of people around the world are genuinely cautious during the month when ghosts are likely to be abroad. According to ancient beliefs, the gates of hell stand open to allow ghosts to visit the living in the lunar seventh month, Ghost Month.

Horse-Headed Tikbalang and other Demons

I was just 17 years old during that time when I and my sister had to take a vacation to my uncle’s house and there I found a bunch of books that contained the subject of demons, demonic worship, topics regarding the occult. Some of these books contained stories from our own country the Philippines….
A True Ghost Story

A True Ghost Story

When I was a young girl years ago, I had a chilling experience with what I am sure was a ghost. This is a true story as far as I am concerned and no one can tell me any different. To this day, I can still vision it plain as day. The large house my…

A Poltergeist in the Caribbean!

As a child growing up in the country side of Jamaica I had always love listening to the many stories told by my grandmother, and other family members on those humid caribbean nights. We would all sit outside the small two bedroom wooden house, roasting corn on a coal fire as the stories were told….

My Scariest Paranormal Experience

My SCARIEST MOMENT was when I was 17 years old, me and my best friend went on vacation with my aunt and her boyfriend. We went to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, for a week. We ended up staying in this really odd house that was located near a famous battle field. How do I explain this. Deep…
The Exorcism Methods of Different Religions

The Exorcism Methods of Different Religions

Demonic possession has been portrayed in many films, televisions shows and books over the years.

My Ghost Story: The Lady Next Door

My Ghost Story: The Lady Next Door

I should explain, first, that right my grandmother instilled a belief in ghosts, spirits, life after death and even demons from childhood. In my country, nearly everyone believes in ghosts. Grandmother used to say that many houses are haunted by souls with unfinished business in this world, or who cling to this reality without moving…

The Summer Of Spirits

Rapping, banging, flashes of light, sulphurous smells and a lost cat are my flash card memories of the time I used to work at a facility for the handicapped in a housing development. I had an apartment in the basement of a unit. The one constant, when I lived there, were the “ghost stories” and…
My Guardian Angel

My Guardian Angel

I have never told the following story to anyone before. I don’t particularly believe in ghosts or the paranormal or anything, or at least I didn’t until this happened to me. Now I’m unsure of what I should believe, but officially I still don’t believe in anything I consider paranormal. I guess it could have…
Lost friend a true and touching story

Lost friend a true and touching story

In the 21st century if you ask people or tell them about demonic encounter, it seems to me that 99% of them will not believe you. Why? Because most have never had demonic encounters—or they didn’t recognize the encounter when it happened. I’ve always believed in the supernatural. I’ve seen too much not to. But…
