As the Philippines goes on a long weekend to “celebrate” one of the oldest traditions (commemorating the dead), one of our blogger friends, Michelle, talks about Hiram Pangilinan’s Hula, Multo, Faith Healing Atbp, a book that deals with common Filipino practices and traditions that are actually occultic in nature.
Michelle is an avid book lover and homeschooling advocate. She has managed to pass on her love of reading to her kids, who are already bookworms at their young age.

Here in the Philippines, most people generally believe so many things such as hula, faith healing, aswang, usog and so many others. Spirit of the coin is commonly played by little children without any thought to its dangers. The usual phrase you hear is “Wala namang masama kung maniwala”. Sigh, it can get tiring trying to explain to others why we don’t want to bring our children to faith healers.
In our family, these practices are followed including feng shui, worship of the dead, and using objects as sources of luck. That’s why I am so glad that Pastor Hiram Pangilinan wrote Hula, Multo, Faith Healing, ATBP
. This book is about the many occult practices that are being done here in the Philippines. He sheds light on all the occult activities that most Filipinos find normal and okay. Through this book I found out that even the ordinary zodiac and astrology are also occult.
In our family, we usually say “We don’t believe in usog.” or “There are no aswangs!” These statements are corrected by Pastor Hiram and explained that these are indeed true and not to be taken lightly. Each occult practice is explained in detail with instructions on how to pray in Jesus’ name in order to be free of Satan’s stonghold in your life.
A word of warning, though, I would suggest praying constantly as you read Hula, Multo, Faith Healing, ATBP
. The stories he tells are true and can cause fear in you as it did to me initially. However, Pastor Hiram also encourages you to pray before reading the book. I always pray before I read it, as I am reading and after I read.
The good thing is that all throughout the book, the author keeps on assuring us that God’s children are safe because demons are afraid of the name of Jesus. After a few more chapters, I started to feel different about the book and its stories. With Pastor Hiram’s constant assurance that demons are afraid just by the mention of Jesus’ name, I feel my fear is starting to fade.

Nagpaparamdam ba sa iyo ang multo?
Nagkakatotoo ba ang masamang hula sa iyo?
May sakit ka ba pero sabi ng doktor ay wala naman?
Sa expose na ito ng mga common practices ng mga Pilipino, ipinapakita ni Hiram Pangilinan na may mga bagay at gawaing bahagi na ng buhay natin na occultic na pala, tulad ng:
- pagbabasa ng horoscope
- pagpaparamdam ng multo
- pagkausap sa dwende
- paniniwala sa pamahiin
- pagkakaroon ng “third eye”
- pagpapagamot sa faith healer
Ang gustong ipaalam ng librong ito ay mas malakas at makapangyarihan si Jesus laban sa mga evil spirits na ito. Sa pamamagitan ni Jesus, maari tayong lumaya mula sa kapangyarihan ng occult at evil spirits
