Japanese Dog Watcher (日本犬神)
It is very
interesting to compare the Japanese occult practices with the Chinese ones as both
of the systems utilize the use of animal spirits. Unlike the Chinese, some Japanese
clans make use of dog spirits as their tribe protectors. It is believed that
only a female family member is entitled to inherent this dog watcher.
to Miko, this dog watcher can eliminate all competitors and redirecting enemies’
fortune to the owner. Proponents believe that when a person passing through the
front door of this particular household, he/she should carry some sewing
needles to ward off the attack of this dog watcher. In old days, if a family is
believed to be in possession of a dog watcher; the whole household would be
expelled from a village. So this practice is normally kept in secrecy.
many ways to get the service of this dog watcher, one of them is to purchase a
dog bone from local witches; the other is to raise the dog watcher spirit
through the below method:
should get a dog and dig a hole in the ground. It is best to choose an evil
area such as a haunted place or an abandoned cemetery. The best timing is
during the dark moon and during midnight.
hole is dug, the dog is buried in the hole with its head protruding out from
the ground. Now some foods are then placed around this dog’s head; the dog must
only be able to see the foods but it cannot touch the food.
dog has gathered sufficient desire on the foods, the spell caster will now
concentrate on his/her enemy and think of what harm the enemy should be
suffering. Then, with a full force, this spell caster should take up a samurai
sword and chop down the head of this dog in a single blow. It is believed that
by doing so, the dog spirit shall go to the enemy and kill him/her.
seeking for revenge, this dog watcher can also be used to watch over one’s
properties or to make troubles to the one he/she doesn’t like. In order to keep
the dog watcher in a household, a piece of the dog bone will be collected from
the dog’s burial ground after 100 days, or after the dog carcass has fully
bone should be worshipped in the master’s personal altar with incense and food
offerings every day until he/she sees the shadow of the dog approaching
him/her. For best effort, a conceived bitch would be the best choice but the master
must be able to control its spirit and the doggie’s spirits too or these
restless dog spirits will devour their masters.
people would practise this type of ritual now days, but we will never know;
perhaps someone will come face to face with this awful dog watcher one day.
However, if you are staying somewhere around Kyushu, then you are likely to
come into contact with one in rural areas.
