Ghost Month…Are You Scared of Ghosts?

It’s Ghost Month, so we expect ‘hungry ghosts’ roaming among the living to feed.

People are wondering how to feed the hungry ghosts? Do we have to offer food for them? Oh yes, food can be offered to them (atang in local filipino dialect) but I suggest you need to be specific whom to offer the food.

Hungry ghosts are those lost souls including victims of tragedies like murder, rape, accidents, also those forgotten or ignored by their families. Let’s not be scared with roaming ghosts but let’s help them ascend to higher planes of existence by offering them prayers.

We can offer food to random souls (ghosts) that might visit your place during today’s Ghost Festival.

Wikipedia says Ghost Festival also known as the Hungry Ghost Festival, Zhongyuan Joe, Gui Jie or Yulan Festival is a traditional Buddhist and Taoist festival held in certain Asian countries. Based on the Chinese calendar, the Ghost Festival is on the 15th night of the seventh month. This is the peak of the Ghost Month and it is believed the gates of Hell are open to let all ghosts to receive food and drinks.

There are Do’s and Don’t’s during Ghost Month: wear light colors like red to keep us lively and protect us from negative vibrations; avoid swimming, major surgery, signing contracts, home constructions, hiring new people, buying condos and also avoid whistling.

Beware of any conflict with anyone especially with your family members and bad emotions are very high during Ghost Festival so don’t let it explode.

Fengshui experts suggest to keep calm and stay cool during Ghost Month and we can offer happy food like roast pork, rice, chicken, beer, cigarettes, and candies or burn paper money (not real money) that make hungry ghosts happy and in return they will give you wealth.

I also suggest to keep your mood up high, smile, listen to happy music, pray and chant for good life. Happy Ghost Festival everyone! Namaste.

Close Encounters with UFOs

So, UFOs are not just some story telling topics but they are ‘REAL’ and some people can still see them just above the roof tops and electric posts in Metro Manila.

I wrote two stories of ‘real ufo encounters’ in Caloocan published in the daily Misteryo column of Abante and Abante Tonite tabloids.

Kenneth’s story: He was standing on the sidewalk of McArthur Highway when he noticed a huge circular silhouette hovering just above electric posts and suddenly it disappeared towards east. He described the UFO similar to motherships appeared in Independence Day movie.

He felt dizzy and almost collapsed when he heard the high pitch sound during the encounter. 

Aling Mameng’s story: She was washing clothes around 10 pm when she noticed a humming sound just above the apartment’s roof and suddenly saw a small circular object hovering. 

She described the flying object with multi-color lights around it and she believes it was not a drone considering the time when it appeared.

True Encounter with Giants

In my Misteryo Column appeared in Abante July 22, 2019 issue, I shared the story of a person who saw a couple of giants in Pasay City. This proves the existence of the giants.

Based on Joemarie’s true accounts, he saw giants appeared sitting on roof tops of nearby houses, and described them wearing farm indigenous clothes.

The encounter lasted for almost a minute and suddenly disappeared.

Misteryo Exposè: Reveal The Truth of Mysteries

We have heard many stories of Paranormal activities and Metaphysical experiences. But we normally set aside those encounters and call them hoaxes and fabricated.

Now, it’s time to reveal the truth of these mysteries based on real-life Paranormal and Metaphysical accounts of people with or without psychic abilities though others are not really aware they’re utilizing their inner skills.

This is the mission of my Misteryo Articles daily published in the Philippine’s widest tabloid circulation – Abante.

Are ET Beings Real? If so..Why Can’t We See Them?

People keep asking if Extra-Terrestrials or ET beings real or not?

I normally answer such question with another question. Do you really want to know if they’re real or not? Now if the answer is yes, then we can proceed and let’s explore the world of the ETs also known as aliens. 

The ETs I know are non-physical beings. They vibrate at another energy level or dimension. Definitely, they cannot be seen by most of us, only those clarivoyants (psychics or gifted people who can see spirits or nonphysical beings) or ET contacts can see or hear them.

Though there were instances that ETs can communicate using our modern day communication equipment (phones, radio receivers) and even television with antennas. But people who are known as ‘channels’ can connect with ETs telepathically or in trance state.

I can categorically state here that ETs are around us, living among us, roaming among us, so I don’t think there’s a need to send astronauts into outer space to make ET contacts. They are already here since the ancient times if we also consider those artifacts, ancient writings, mysterious places and other evidences as featured in alien encounters documentaries such as ancient aliens tv series.

The only thing we should do to make contacts with them is we learn to tune in to their frequencies thru telepathy, and channeling though others can even hear their voices. How can we achieve this? I think meditation is the first step to train (tame) our mind. Thru meditation, we can clear or ‘declutter’ our mind from useless thoughts.

Beware of Social Engineering Attacks

We admit the real fact today, most of us people depend our lives on social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr among others.

As we hook ourselves on social media sites, most of us unconsciously or deliberately forget to protect our privacy and we post all details of our personal information and daily routine of our lives.

Mostly people are using social media as their diary, posting their every minute day-to-day life from waking up in the morning until bedtime in the evening.

Social media is very useful to get information for personal gains, sharing and getting news updates but very risky when it comes to giving out your personal information especially when engaging with on-line sellers and always make sure you only deal with legits and not scammers.

We cannot really stop scammers use the social media like facebook, twitter, instagram, and others but I think the best way is we have to control (stop) ourselves sharing our personal information such as location, bank/credit card accounts, passwords, etc.

Not to mention those deliberate attacks to sneak in to your private life and steal your personal media files and ruin your lives by spreading some ‘scandalous videos and photos’.

I think the best way to prevent social media attacks is to know what these attacks are:

Phishing – this is the most common social media attacks using emails, social media at instant messaging and SMS to trick victims to provide sensitive information or visiting malicious URL.

Watering Hole – this type of attack consists of injecting malicious codes into the public web pages of a site that the targets used to visit. The method of injection is commonly used by cyber criminals and hackers. Once a victim visits the page on the compromised website a backdoor trojan is installed on his computer. This method is used for cybere espionage operation or state-sponsored attacks.

Whaling Attack – this is an evolution method of phishing attacks using sophisticated social engineering techniques to steal confidential information, personal data, access credentials. 

Pretexting – the term itself indicates the practice of presenting oneself as someone else to obtain private information by creating fake identity and use it to manipulate the receipt of information.

Ghosts Are Here Again!

Good day Everyone!

It’s a season again of spooky stories and scary experiences due to this year’s remembrance of our dead relatives and friends.

In Christian belief, we call it All Souls’ Day (November 2), which is normally being observed in the Philippines on the first day of November along with the observance of the All Saints’ Day.

Before the ‘big day’ for all the departed souls, we also observe the Western tradition we call ‘Halloween’ or “All Hallows Eve’, which originated in the ancient Celtic festival known as ‘Samhain’, pronounced as “saw-hin’, derived from the Old Irish ‘Samuin’ meaning “summer’s end”. The Festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest seasonin Gaelic culture.

The Halloween, the 31st day of October has long been believed by the ancient Gaels believed “the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops. To ward off these spirits, the Irish built huge, symbolically regenerative bonfires and invoked the help of the gods through animal and perhaps even human sacrifice” (More readings: http://reytsibayan.com/is-halloween-important/).

As of this writing, me and some of my clairvoyant friends have noticed sudden appearances/manifestations of ghosts and non-physical beings, while others can sense the presence of their dead relatives in their houses and departed colleagues in their work places.

It is a sign that the believed ‘overlapping’ of dimensions between the living and dead are now in the process and we expect frequent manifestations of ghosts as we are approaching the October 31, November 1 and November 2 of this year’s remembering the dead celebration.

If you ask me what to do if you see them (ghosts) and suddenly appeared right before your eyes, either you acknowledge them or just ignore them, it’s all up to you. If you acknowledge them then get ready to be annoyed because they got your attention, maybe they need someone who can talk to them and they need help to ascend to high planes of existence. These are conscious ghosts that we can interact or communicate. The other ghost manifestation is called ‘mechanical’, those are shells of energies attached to places of accidents and appear at certain times.

But if you have the ability to see them, I keep reminding you that it is a ‘great responsibility’ because you have the access to see the world beyond the physical reality. It is not a curse as some could normally label it, but rather it is a gift (not special because everyone can activate this) that we can utilize to help the the departed souls to move on to their evolution.

You can read a story of a clairvoyant http://dzrhnews.com.ph/third-eye-confession-clairvoyant/

Prayers, candles, incense and even food can be offered to the souls of the departed. If we think we can help them, then there’s no reason at all to be scared of them. In the end, we will turn into ghostly-form when the time comes for us to evolve to higher dimensions we call Heaven. #

 

Don’t Blame Nature for Calamities and Tragedies

It’s UNFAIR and INJUSTICE if we blame nature for the devastation and tragedies due to calamities like storms, floods, volcanic eruptions and even earthquakes.

We must admit that we are causing (directly or indirectly) these calamities to happen  because we are destroying our natural resources thru mining, quarrying, logging, wastes disposal and others.

We have to learn our lessons and be mindful on whatever effects of our actions. These calamities in whatever degree are reminding all of us to rectify our mistakes, to change our environmental policies and protect the lives of all creation on this planet. It is not too late to save and protect our mother nature for the next generations of human race.

 

 

Do You Fear Ghost Month?

It’s Ghost Month, whether we believe or not in this Chinese tradition, it really happens both in the physical and spiritual realms.

I said, it is really happening yes it is and if you want some proof, it all depends on how you interpret some things in your life.

If you’re a serious guy following the Chinese feng shui practice, you might experience lesser impact or effect of the Ghost Month, such as loosing money, job, business transactions or any bad luck during this period including accidents, sickness, and others.

Ghost Month is being observed during the 7th Lunar Month in the traditional Chinese calendar, which they believe the ‘Gates of Hell’ are open during this period to allow ghosts and spirits to visit the world of the living.

When we talk about ghosts and  spirits, we normally get scared and feel the goosebumps around our bodies, especially if you are not open to the idea of ghosts and souls can roam around with the living.

Ghost Month 2018 starts on August 11 and ends on September 10. The peak part of this Chinese tradition this year will be on August 25, known as the Hungry Ghost Festival, Zhongyuan Jie, Gui Jie or Yulan Festival based on traditional Buddhist and Taoist Festival in certain Asian countries.

Festival of the Middle Season 中元节 (Zhong Yuan Jie) is commonly known as the “Chinese Ghost Festival” in folk culture, and perhaps misunderstood and thus translated as “Hungry Ghosts Festivals .

The festival Originated from China, and on the 15th Day of Luanr 7 Month, it is known as the Zhong Yuan Jie 中元节(Festival of the Midde Season), a day Taoists to perform worship to their ancestors and perform salvation rites for the deceased. This day is known as the feast day of Di Guan Da Di地官大帝 (The Earth Official) (中元地官大帝下降考校日). The term “中元” refers to the Earth Official. He is one of the Three Divine Officials – Heaven, Earth and Water (天,地,水三官大帝) in Taoist Pantheon of Deities. Worship of the Three Officials dated back to the Han Dynasty.

On this Day, Taoist Priests would be engaged to perform the Salvation rituals for souls to ascend to the Eastern Palace of Enternal Bliss 青华常乐界(Heavenly Realm). The Earth Official pardon sins and thus it is also a time to seek forgiveness and confession.

Another Taoist deity that Taoists will accord respect, especially during Taoist salvation rituals will be the Heavenly Lord Tai Yi of Salvation (太乙救苦天尊). Taoists believes in seeking deliverance through Lord Tai Yi. Reciting his sacred name will also reap unlimited blessings and liberation.

Some of these have been discussed during my Sunday program in the Philippine’s First Radio Media Network DZRH with Fengshui Expert Aldric Dalumpines.

Another Fengshui Expert Hanz Cua has some tips to follow during Ghost Month.

Stay safe everyone during this Ghost Month, let’s not be scared but we can do things to avoid bad luck, I recommend prayer and meditation and yes we can follow these tips from experts in geomancy. Let’s make the Hungry Ghosts happy.
