Defeating SEA Magic Invulnerabilities
Southeast Asia magic traditions are full of invulnerability spells.
I was told by an old Malay history teacher when I was still schooling back then
that the power of old Malay invulnerability was pretty impressive, until the
government amended one of the sentencing clause to: “hang until death” from the
original “sentence to gallows”.
Well, it was said that if a person being hang once for
certain timing and he/she cannot die; that’s the God’s will and this person
should be released. But not so to the Malay magic practitioners, they could be
hanged for hours and still holding their breaths. As the story goes, since
there were too many people freed from gallows, the government have to change
the clause to ‘make sure’ the person is indeed dead. Theoretically speaking, if
the person will not die, then he/she will be hanged until he/she really kicks the
Having said so, what is important now is: one has to know
that the power of invulnerability only comes from two sides; Good and Evil. In
Filipino magic it is Good Engkantos versus Diabolic Engkantos. While in other
traditions: Balinese, Kejawen, Malay, Thai or Taoist; it is Good spirits and
Well, just to let you know that this invulnerability is not
absolute. There are two ways to defeat this invulnerability:
·For black magic practitioners, the method is
just to raise the person above the ground. The reason is that most of their
spirit alliances are from earth gnomes or elementals. So once they are in the
air, their power source is cut off, hence they can easy be killed or hurt by
sharp objects or incantations. As on how to lift the person above the ground,
that remains to be a good problems to be solved J!
·For white magic practitioners, there are many
methods really: splash them with blood of black cat or black dog, cane them
with consecrated cane etc. Since good spirits hated dirty stuffs, so if the
person is dirty; the spirits will leave the person. So much of wanting to
become good guy eh?
So my conclusion is that: regardless if a person is a good
magic or black magic practitioner, no one is above the law.
