Earth Spirits And Dragon Knots (地灵与龙穴)
benefit of those folks who do not understand Feng Shui terms, ‘dragon’ means
mountain range while ‘dragon knots’ means the end of a mountain range where
earth’s magnetic field or simply known as ‘chi’ accumulates. Since the old
Chinese think that our mother earth is a living entity, so the energy stored in
mountain ranges are as if living dragons.
spending many hours in jungles and mountain ranges looking for herbs as well as
searching for auspicious Feng Shui locations, I noticed that most of the dragon
knots are guarded by spirits such as mountain and earth spirits. Hence we
should not be too greedy in taking over these sacred locations without due
consent or disasters will be fallen upon us. Naturally, our power will be
lesser than the spirits where they are the master of the wilderness.
many tell tale signs of the presence of these spirit watchers as at times, they
will transform into giant snakes, rare plants, wild animals, white misty
shadowy figures or even ant hills. These manifestations will vanish and another
scene will appear in front of the one who dares to venture near. If one is not
careful, he/she may be trapped in this scenery for days; or perhaps forever if
he/she is so unlucky.
think of spirits as batteries and they will need to be recharged. Spirits of
lower class will possess the living beings for energy replenishment, while
spirits of higher order will need to absorb earth magnetic energy. A dragon
knot resembles a woman’s virginal and it is a spirit’s battery charger.
too will seek out these dragon knots for enhancing his/her power or for other
magical activities. Gods and goddesses will look for dragon knots that are
exposed to sunlight, moonlight and starlight, while earth spirits or ghosts
will prefer the dragon knots that are covered by foliage or hidden in a cave.
While I was
at Gunung Ledang during my last trip, I found a very nice dragon knot not far
away from a waterfall. However, I also saw a figure in white already standing
on the location and I could only camp beside it for a night. I thought it was
the legendary princess where the local call her ‘Puteri Gunung Ledang’.
figure lingered on the dragon knot until way past midnight and then vanished
itself together with a layer of thick night fog. When the fog finally
dispersed, the figure was gone. I thought the princess was so kind to ‘lend’
the place for me to meditate for a day or two. Anyway, I can’t be sure if it
was indeed the princess as there were no communications between us at that time
