of older magical traditions in this world deal with spirits to do their
biddings. After years of experiences dealing with these spiritual entities, I try to list down
some lesser known traits that I think are interesting to talk about.
refers to human spirits specifically or some may like to call them ghosts.
Spirits are fuzzy entities
spirits are stubborn and blurred. Well, the clever ones already gone with the
light within 49 days’ duration.
put us in their shoes (only if they have feet …) and think what we would do if …
One day when all our familiar belongings: houses, family, car, money etc. are
no longer belonged to us; all our complaints are unheard and no food to eat.
Say that a
bugger comes and says to us:
pity soul. How are you?”
how come you die so young?”
marry you if you’re still alive …”
We will definitely
stick to this person 99% of the time as he or she has shown sympathy to us add
to that we have nowhere to go, wouldn’t we?
Spirits will not leave voluntarily
spirits get comfortable with their ‘hosts’, it is quite difficult to make them
leave voluntarily. There is a Chinese saying:
(It is easy to invite
ghosts, but difficult to send them away.)
So you see, once these
invisible beings are with you; they are definitely sticking to you for as long
as they can. Unless of course, the hosts die and there is no more energy to be
Spirits rely on energies to
survive. If your household electrical appliances especially the lights break
down pretty often, then this is one of the indications that a spirit is around.
Likewise, spirits will also

I was told by a fellow Taoist
practitioner that the dying process of a person can be prolonged by simply
attaching spirits onto the person. In doing so, the person will keep grasping
for air but will not kick the bucket. This is done when his or her life is to
be prolonged while waiting for the love ones to arrive.
When spirits attached
themselves to human beings, I call them “parasites”. Of course, in magic
traditions, spiritual parasites are used as a means to achieve invulnerability
and 6th sense.
parasites can bring more harm than good:
parasites are sucking energies from their hosts, the hosts will experience mood
swing, tired, palpitation etc.
parasites can ‘mask’ out actual illnesses and cause a tumor not to be shown in
x-ray photo and more often than not, discovery of the real cause is often a
little too late.
Illnesses such as
cancers, diabetes, high blood etc. are said to be partly attributed to
Spirits cannot change the world
Majority of the spirits are
ignorant and helpless. If anyone says that spirits can save the world, then that
must be a lie. Most of the time, they need to be taught on what and how to do a
task. Perhaps there are good ones around, but after browsing through available
magic traditions; I have yet to see one. A simple pendulum will certainly give
the skeptics a very good sample.
So here you are, our
invisible friends in a nutshell. I think the best attitude towards these
invisible friends is:
(Respect the spirits, but
keep them at a distance.)
The choice is still, yours;
