Conversation With A Hang Ghost (女縊死鬼)
owns a prewar building in George Town near Komtar and he stays there alone. When
I dropped by his shop; he wanted me to take a look. According to Uncle Wong, he
always sleeps in his armchair under the wooden staircase. During the night, he
can hear people descending and ascending the staircase but couldn’t see anyone.
He could hear a lady’s sighting sound at times. Since there was a case of a
lady teacher hung herself in a room upstairs, Uncle Wong suspected that it is
the teacher’s sprits.
to help Uncle Wong out and spend a night at his place. There are challenges in
this type of investigation. Well, the simplest method is to evoke the spirit and
either to chase it away or perform a spirit deliverance service. But I decided
to use none of the above method. I wanted to try a method called ‘coscinomancy’
(扶乩) or more commonly known as ‘auto-writing’.
making some preparations, I started the ritual at 12 midnight with the help of
a spirit medium. I will need two persons to perform this ritual, for one will
be the writer and one will be the interpreter.
I burnt some talismans and incantations, the pen started to scribble some
sentences that read:
“My life was as thin
While my remainder
soul flipped as if a tent under strong wind;
I am dragging a three
feet white cloth on my neck,
Who am I?
I am a piece of withering
Though I had good
times with my mate,
I didn’t have my way.
Now my grave is still
empty or I’ll not be singing here;
I hated the person who
had jilted me!”
I knew that
she was a female hang ghost. So, I tried to ask her name and this was what she
had to say:
“I was from Goh family once stayed in this
building, I had good education but my life ended with my stupidity. Please don’t
laugh at me and please don’t ask my name. If you would, please do so and pray
read the last sentence, I asked Uncle Wong not to panic as this spirit will not
harm anyone. Perhaps I will let her hang around for some time longer to repent
for what she has done. And when she is ready, I will deliver her to the pure
land if she so wish desires.
