Commentary: It’s Not a Ghost Shrine One of the many issues dealing with the general public with Paganism, Satanism and Witchcraft has always been the people that think they can just stand outside the property and “leave their ghosts” for the witch or priest(ess) to deal with. Hire one to fix your haunting problem. You can’t just drive or walk around the block saying things three times and expect your spirit or ghost problem to go away. People in the religions used to mail me keys to represent the spirits of the departed (Hekate). You also can not embarrass and harass someone in their house to try to get them to come out so people can see them if they are famous. If they actually are a Witch or a Satanist, you just make them more small town famous.
Today’s flyby as I was writing this post. [you know someone is not local if they are trying to talk to you via karaoke as this flies overhead.] They are still trying to phone it in with a three way conversations Yep, that famous, 500 million Harry Potter books about Witches will do that to you -lol.
Speaking of flyby’s which,..
Why not warn two birds with one stone and refuel some (cough) Nato Aircraft over the Ukraine? Hmm? Russia leased a airbase in Syria. It’s called defense co-operation where you can land and go get something to eat and use the restroom on your way to somewhere else. One of those hmm moments,.. You could use the really cool logo and freak em out again,.. You do know their new president played soccer right?
Something about some agreement somewhere about getting rid of nuclear weapons comes to mind,.. and in case Turkey gets squeamish, it is a “ahem, cough” Pagan Christian Christian Pagan, Jewish, Islamic, Cossack type country? There are like a million Russian and Ukrainians in California plus 250,000 Persians that own Beverly Hills and San Diego? They probably would love to vacation there,.. They have pickup trucks with little American flags on them with what looks like a dog on the roof, they just need a igloo cooler. I am sure they will watch the planes for you. Yes they can drive down the road backwards and shoot forwards.
Aaah, I see that this:

It has come to our attention that an unintended side effect of the neighborhood karaoke wars is the participation of the homeless in the local “neighborhood watch”. Several people use “the speakers” AKA Karaoke machines as “their defense”. They think that being loud is their defense, the problem is that people can hear them and try to talk to them.
Redlands and Big Bear Lake California “Neighborhood watch” end up talking to each other ANDthe homeless at night. If you hear your stories spread around town in areas that have you never go to then it’s probably due to this effect. IF your church has given cell phones (!) or helped people to receive them in the free cell phone program for low income Californians this might be a source of your gossip problem. They are not security for your church they hurt your security. Despite everything they tell you the problem is that they like you and will talk about you outside in public. That is where they live and work! If you get them jobs associated with your businesses they will be IN your life. It’s OK but then YOU are responsible FOR them IF there is a daily relationship. This is why we have public services for them.
Story Number 1:
Arcadia Presbyterian Church had this happen several times where their fellowship hall got hot inside and the sound of the services was broadcast around the neighborhood unintentionally. This was a regular “side effect” when all the doors and windows were open. We ended up having door ushers (screeners) when the sanctuary doors were open so they could help people who traveled to the church hoping to get help. (*) The hot sanctuary was not a huge problem for the neighboring properties but it attracted people like a revival tent meeting. When the christian sounds were loud people walking down the street started walking towards the christian sounds they heard. Hoping to get help. (1)
Story Number 2:
About15 years ago in this neighborhood several of the homeowners used to sit with each other at night and talk. We called it the lonely hearts club. The problem once again was it attracted a informal gathering of people, mostly homeowners. This went on for years and it was fine but as people aged they grew hard of hearing and started “talking on the phone” in conference calls or they bought sports radios and handed them to their friends and neighbors. Time passed and it got louder and louder as people hooked up the phones and sports radios to their stereos. One neighbor used her “cordless set up” for gardening to talk to her husband when they were both outside together. It’s usually hooked up to the central house system so they can hear each other and the TV or stereo is usually on.
What happened eventually was that they ended up talking to the homeless and several families had them move in with them or they became regular overnight neighborhood guests. They said they were neighbors and they probably were they just get tired drinking and using your megaphone or karaoke machine and sleep in your yards. [true story]
Notes: I am NOT talking about business radios used after work.
Hearing “official business gossip” is very scary and a different subject.
(*) We had a stock set of screening questions (a questionnaire) to ask new people. It’s to help people get the services they need quickly and it’s unintended side effect is added security.
(1) Why did the Arcadia Presbyterian Church take all these precautions back in the 1970’s–1990’s? I think it was to protect famous visitors. Having the head Satanist drop by probably brought in people. I don’t remember exactly. That was 40+ years ago. Thank you for your interest.
Media reports over the last several months have trumpeted that witches in the U.S. now outnumber Presbyterians. It’s great religious click-bait but the assertion, to the extent it’s based on anything, rests on a...
YESSSSSS,.. said the Serpentssss,…
Now they just drive by in their cars and talk about it 40 years later.
Karaoke Machine Wars have started again, turn it off please.
It’s justDrive by KaraokeWarsANDKaraoke Wars.
We have learning disabled children and adults that do it also. That’s just about the worst thing ever, just sticking a disabled child or adult down in front of a Karaoke machine and telling them to:
“Go ahead, see if you can find some friends with that thing” “Nobody likes you” “There’s someone at the door Xxxxx, Come outside and see.”
“Someone wants to meet you at Xxxxxs or Rick’s Pizza”
It’s unbelievable that people would do that to someone for punishment but they do. We have heard it. It’s been 15 years of a Karaoke War in this neighborhood. 7 houses got into it this time, in 2003 it was over 14 houses. They use teams and plan it. People wrote speeches. One neighbor hooked up their shortwave radio to a outdoor speaker so it was 24/7 random radio talk. The only thing that worked was outdoor music, but that was offensive to the “Radical Christians” (no joke). They can only listen to music in their sanctuary on Sunday. It starts at about 3 or 4 in the morning.
In a variation of a Karaoke war the local elementary school mariposa is “haunted” by a few people who when they notice a visitor they use a parabolic microphone and a loudhailer and when they knock on the nurse’s office door (part of a local haunting story) they play the knocking sound back over the loudhailer to the “ghost hunters”.
I like to sing and sometimes I sing when I work. It helps me to get beyond isometric and into the aerobic zone, It’s also because I am afraid but I wear a machete in the yard when I garden, I used to wear a firearm sometimes because people tied to kill me when I was a child in Arcadia California.
It’s been 15 years almost continuously since this started up.
The reason for ruined reputations is people have their phones hooked up to the karaoke machines because they are hard of hearing and to be evil.
The reason I am physically sick is Karaoke Wars and lack of sleep. People have had heart attacks because of it. Neighbors used to just walk outside and shoot a shotgun to stop it. The reason I won’t go to Big Bear Lake California is Karaoke wars.

Cursing someone’s name
Proper etiquette is to try not to use a swear word in the same sentence as a person’s namewhen you are talking about someone where people can overhear itoutside the home.
Before you are introduced or when you can not see the person using a swear word and a person’s name was considered a curse. Not a high level curse to the gods or a I curse you in the name of my father or the name of my mother for instance. It is considered temporary back luck and if a apology is offered there is no offense. If it is done in casual conversation you should ask if you can curse or not. Some families do not allow it and some don’t mind.
Religious or NOT? Yes: The breath of life —> it’s In both low magic and high magic in some form all around the world as a folk belief and as a part of ceremonies. Very varied subject and is still used today in United States of America, California, Western and Mountain Culture.
Ex: She is mountain ugly <—extremely good looking and using it this way is so the gods do not get jealous. Confusing for sure if it is in public but privately that’s the usage — backwards/mountain witch talkis the local aphorism for doing this and it has a direct religious link that goes back thousands of years.
EU NA ME Background +
When you have nothing courtesy matters, politeness matters. If you have nothing to physically give to someone else (food, water, shelter) you could at least give people respect and courtesy within your own countrymen and countrywomen. When all you had left to give was respect, dying right was all that mattered. Still to this day asking for permission to cut your hair and join the fighters was asking permission to possibly die. Is it worth a life is the question. Is it worth your son’s or daughter’s life? That’s the level of commitment we are talking about. If you lost your son or daughter in the fighting you did not have their protection or their help to feed the family.
An aphorism is a concise, terse, laconic, and/or memorable expression of a general truth or principle. They are often handed down by tradition from generation to generation.
There once was a man who was a writer, he changed his name to write books about magic. They were successful books and he had lots of fans. It ended up being a counterculture movement in the 1970’s to the 2000’s that continues today. He was my biological father —I was put up for adoption— then he had another son by a different woman. His name was Howard Stanton Levey he changed his name to Anton Szandor LaVey. The family always said —all you have to do is change your name and write a book. If you want to know what one of his children believed and what the history of his diplomatic church in Southern California is come visit us on the other web pages. What are you afraid of? It’s a web page:
This is a Witch Shine and Sanctuary created by Zeena Shreck for her family. Her father Anton LaVey was arguably the most famous —United States of America — Ukrainian Pagan and “Satanist” author of all time, he remains famous to this day.
The Witch United States UNCOS: The National Crossroads Sanctuary and Shrine of Hekate Aphrodite
Local note about spiritualists around the property and ghost hunters from the Hekates: Please do not visit the Hekate shrine and ghost hunt.
Hekate controls the gates to the underworld. How can you be sure that the ghosts you are talking to are not evil spirits from hell or are mad at you for disturbing their everlasting rest? Disrespectful people are usually not very welcome because they disturb the souls, never pray for them or leave offerings and leave bad feelings behind.
Rule #1: Be nice to the spirits first and they will be nice to you.
One local woman figured it out a long time ago, all she had to say was friendly spirit when she heard one or saw one and then the spirits were friendly to her all day. She had good luck when she did that and bad luck when she did not. Usually things like this are very simple and this rule of thumb works pretty well when you are on a spiritual path in life.
Be respectful, be kind to the spirit or spirits and thank them if they help you, but above all else:
