LEMURES

Roman Demon

Ghosts of the Dead who come to torment the living

They usually put in an appearance during May.

If this leaves you feeling anxious please don’t worry; by following a few simple instructions a haunting can be prevented. All you need are three black beans:

1. Arise at midnight with bare feet.
2. Snap your fingers and wash your hands three times.
3. Now pop the beans in your mouth — remove and throw them behind you. Don’t look.
4. Say the following words: ‘I throw away these beans and with them redeem myself and mine’.
5. Repeat nine times.
6. Now say: ‘Paternal Manes Go’ nine times.

It is now quite safe to look behind you.
