met an Indian lady at a crossroad near where I stayed about two weeks ago in
the dead of the night performing some sort of ritual; which I later learnt from
the lady that it was a curse for the person who has hurt her heart.
what the lady told me, she allowed me to publish the ritual for those people
who felt that they have been the victim of unjust. In order to perform this
ritual, first we must get some basic ingredients: a lime, two coffin nails, a
dozen of sewing needles, an earth urn filled with water fetched from a river and
some weeds and Moringa leaves for self protection.
timing to perform this ritual is at midnight 3 days after full moon and before
dark moon. When the ingredient is prepared, we will need to pray in front of black
goddess Kali in her wrathful form for assistance and to catch the soul of the
culprit into the lime. After performing some length of incantation according to
our wish, we must explicitly express what type of mishaps our target should
suffer due to his/her mischievous behaviors.
feel that the person’s soul has entered into the lime, we prick the two coffin
nails into the lime making an ‘X’ sign. Then, we continue to prick all
available needles into the lime while thinking of the person’s face. After that,
the lime is placed into the earth urn and the whole assembly is brought to a
crossroad and smashed in the middle of the crossroad. With the disintegration
of the urn, the curse is deemed to take effect.
spell caster must quickly return home and hang the protective charm above the
house entrance to prevent the curse from bouncing back. The lady said that the
curse will take effect upon the coming full moon.
don’t think I ever need this ritual… but if you wanted to give it a try; then
please tell me the effect if any. It is not that I encourage such practices: I
am interested in the effectiveness only.
Below very interesting stories are contributed by Barry… I
must agree with Barry that certain type of music does attract spirits at
certain time. The old Chinese believed that if someone is playing flute in the
middle of the night in an open area will attract ghosts.
Recently I've just bought a guitar because friend of mine
once said that he is willing to teach me how to play it, and I was interested
in music too. I was living on a "kamar kos" (a kind of dorm room)
back then. One day, when he came to teach me and he began to play a music.
After a while, I notice several "spirits fireflies" come near him. He
began to wondered, "Why you looked at me with that looks?" I only
tell him while smiling, "Certain music attract certain spirits..."
That sightings occurred several times in many different occasion and different
place when he played music. Anyway, he doesn't play religious song at that
time. He played a kind of pop music. Forgot the title though... And of course,
he knows about my interest in occult things...
Speculation regarding this case:
Those "fireflies" are fairies. Since my pal's
behaviour is childlike sometimes, and usually faeries are attracted to kids. I
notice how his eyes become glittering like a playgroup children found a new
toys when he played my guitar. The childlike mind and music are perfect
combination for faeries...
Those "fireflies" are his guardians. Since my
pal's parents is a devout Catholic and often pray for him although he himself
is not really that devout. I was once see his guardians in another occasion. So
it's not the music that attract the spirits in this theory. They only manifest
as usual and maybe take some interest in music. But they are already there...
Not some kind of stranger spirits that being attracted.
Those "fireflies" are the guardians of my
"sacred place". Living in "kamar kos" means you don't have
much space to be able to create a special altar room and sacred space. So that
only room I living is also my sacred place.
Those "fireflies" are wondering spirits that come
around by coincidence, and somehow I associated them with the music even though
the two are not related.
I once take some interest in Japanese folk song named
"kagome kagome". In case you want to know some stories, games
associated with it, or background in depth regarding this song, you can open
this link : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kagome_Kagome. Below is the lyrics of
the song and a translation according to my intepretation (because the song
itself is a bit ambiguous to be able to translated properly).
Kagome kagome (cage oh cage),
Kago no naka no tori wa (a bird trapped within a cage).
Itsu itsu deyaru? (when oh when it would come out?),
Yoake no ban ni (in the night of dawn...).
Tsuru to kame ga subetta (heron and turtle are falling
Ushiro no shoumen daare? (whose face it is when you look
*"heron and turtle are falling over" could means
"no prosperity no longevity"
I learn how to sing it from youtube. There are at least two
events of spirits attracting when I sing it in two different occasion.
First, when I stayed over my friends house and began to sing
that song. He feel unusual shivers and later when he go out to take some water,
he saw sightings of "white lady" even though he almost never
"seeing things" before.
Second, I sang that song at my office. Another friend that
often meditate and develop a noticeable degree of sensitiveness began to feel
uneasy and told me to stop singing because it attract many spirits. He began to
recite "Ratana Sutta" to calm those spirits and ward them off.
Speculation regarding this case :
The song itself has a kind of bad origin so it could attract
bad spirits, breaking any boundary of language, culture, and place. How local
spirits could understand Japanese language? Or maybe those sightings are the authentic
Japanese spirits? I wonder myself...
Somehow I sing that song with certain degree of appreciation
of its meaning. The appreciation of mine could be the cause of spirit
This theory is given from my office friend mentioned before.
The tone of the song itself has a property that could attract spirits. Even if
you're humming the song without sing its lyrics, it could still attract
Anyway I leave to you any interpretation or theory that born
from these stories.
First of all, I am not trying to belittle the docs. But
there are just too many docs out there that just continue to make my head shake
for they just interested in making money out of their poor patients. It is not
fair just to throw out statements as such, so let me tell you two personal
encounters just this year:
True Story 1
My cousin sister, Janet is a hotel housekeeping supervisor
in her late 30’s working in Singapore. A few months ago, she felt executing pain
at her lower back area when she was mending a bed. Since then Janet couldn’t
walk straight and this nagging problem has tormented her for about a year or so
until she finally gone to see a doctor.
As told by Janet that she immediately burst into tears when
the good doc told Janet that she had slip disc and needed to be operated
immediately… and folks, that would cost of around SGD30k and 3 months’ rest.
Apparently good old Janet couldn’t afford the price, not to mention that she
might lost her job.
So Janet went to Melaka to see a traditional healer as
introduced by her brother and her condition improved almost immediately. I only
learnt about her plight during our New Year gathering as her pain has revisited
her. Since the clinics didn’t open for business during that time, I volunteered
myself to treat her.
Well, my tool was simple: a piece of buffalo horn. After 20
minutes of treatment, Janet showed a sense of relief on her face and to her
surprised that her nagging problem was just cured by a piece of MYR10 buffalo
True Story 2
My mom has dry eyes since a year ago. She continued to use
artificial tear drops to keep her eyes moist until fairly recently that the
artificial tears wasn’t helpful and due to the dryness that my mom’s eyes
I have advised mom to drink plenty of water and drink some
Chrysanthemum or Mulberry tea. But my mom insisted to pay her good doc a visit
and was given some antibiotic to apply onto her eyes as the doc suspected my
mom has suffered from ‘red eye syndrome’.
It was quite unfortunate that my mom’s condition didn’t
improved after spending a couple hundreds of dollars. Her eyes became redder still
and she kept winking her eyes indicating her utmost discomfort.
I thought of sending mom to visit a specialist and again it
was during weekends and the specialist wasn’t in business. So I asked my bro to
bring her to a trusted TCM sensei (先生)
in the hope to lessen mom’s pain at least momentarily perhaps.
It was to all our relief that my mom’s pain was lessened
almost immediately after the TCM sensei gave her a round of acupuncture. Tears
begun to flow out from my mom’s eyes!
On seeing this situation, the TCM sensei gave mom some herbal
medicine and asked her to come again a week later.
All in all, the treatment cost less than MYR50… what can I
In both of the cases, if we followed the advices of the good
docs; I’m sure that Janet wouldn’t be able to walk properly and my mom would
probably be blind by now… There are certainly cases where modern physicians can
do better of course. It would be up to us to keep our fingers crossed and pray
that a good doc appear when in need.
absent from my blog for a good reason. My life was too boring and I decided I
need some travelling due north. Or I wouldn’t have any stories to continue with
further blog postings…
recently I had an opportunity to dine with a Cambodian old man during my
Indochina rendezvous. The meeting was not prearranged just to tell you the
truth. You see, I was waiting for my friend to come and fetch me in a local restaurant
and this old man just barged in and asked me if he can sit beside me. I didn’t
refuse his request and invited him to be seated.
It was raining
quite heavily outside so I ordered a bowl of hot noodle soup for the grandpa
and we begun our not so fluent conversation. As a matter of fact, the
conversation was more like guessing hand gestures than actual talking: I don’t
speak Cambodian and the grandpa doesn’t speak English. Luckily the grandpa
understands a little Chinese and seems that that was sufficient to get the
simple meal, we sort of chatting about the local delicacies and good local hang
about. Somehow the conversation topic was veered towards the magical practices
and once this topic is touched upon, I could see old grandpa’s eyes suddenly
brightened up and he told me a secret recipe to make knock-out wine that could
knock out any drinker. That was to repay my good hospitality.
to the grandpa, the main ingredient of the knock-out wine is any rotating
parts: bullock cart wheels, bicycle wheel frames, metal gears etc. So, once we
have gotten the required ingredients; we can just dip the part into a bottle of
wine on a full moon night. If the part is too big, then it is okay to break it
into pieces and fill it in the bottle.
must put this special wine under our beds for one complete month before letting
our opponents to consume. Before we parted, the grandpa touted that a small cup
of this special vine is enough to bring down any super good drinkers. The
antidote to this spell is simple: Just hold a piece of pebble or wood in your
palm and the magic will be null and void.
This spell is useless to me as even a small cup of ordinary wine already
make me see stars and planets. So, I don’t drink and would just leave it for
the interested parties to experiment. But just a word of caution: drinking is
bad for your health! Take it or leave it.
I got to know Ms Ding when she visited me one day for
consultation. She told me that she was sexually assaulted by her boy friend
when she was young and that she had spent time in jail due to homicide.
Ms Ding is born on November 20th, 1971 at 7am.
Below is her astrology reading:
First, this lady is not someone to be tempered with as she with
fight till one party dies even though her life force is fairly weak. Basically
the reading shows that this lady is cleaver but a loner, she is destined to
break the law and the chance of being imprisoned is great.
Her major luck reads:
On her luck between 21 to 30 years old is shown in red, she
was destined to involve in a fight that caused injuries to herself and her
opponent; and her opponent was her husband as shown in her main reading above.
Indeed the unfortunate incident happened in 1993 which is
the year of rooster:
In 1993, when Ms Ding was 22, she had an argument with her
hubby concerning money issues and they had a fight. Unfortunately, her hubby
was accidently killed by Ms Ding with a piece of stick.
Ms Ding was subsequently sentenced to 10 years imprisonment.
Now Ms Ding is 43, she is in her 41 to 50 years old major
luck. Apparently she is suffering from her old injuries and she can call
herself lucky if she can celebrate her 51st birthday.
A friend Mr. Chen invited me to visit his apartment which is
situated in Tanjung Bunga near TAR College. According to Mr. Chen, he and his
family moved into the apartment about a year ago and that there are only 4
persons living in his apartment: Mr. and Mrs. Chen, his son named Albert and
his daughter Lisa.
Strange things started since as Mrs. Chen always felt that
there is an additional ‘person’ up to such a stage that she even prepared an additional
seat and a bowl of rice during lunch and dinner.
In one occasion when both of the kids were out leaving Mr.
and Mrs. Chen alone in their apartment, suddenly Mrs. Chen said: “What is
Albert doing inside the store room as I seen he went in about an hour ago?”
Mr. Chen answered in astonishment: “I thought both of the
kids are out!?”
Even so, Mrs. Chen still believed that she has seen someone
entered the store room with her naked eyes.
Yet in another occasion, the couple went to attend a wedding
function and Mrs. Chen was quite sure that she has stored away all her makeup
utensils in her cupboard before she left. Again to her amazement, all her
makeup kits laid all over her makeup table when she returned from the wedding.
Both of the kids were interrogated but only to receive denial and blank faces
from the kids.
Now Mr. Chen suspected his wife being psychosis and he asked
Mrs. Chen to consult a psychologist. However, after a series of diagnostics and
Mrs. Chen was pronounced to be normal.
After listening to Mr. Chen’s interesting stories, I took
out my compass and take some measurements. After a while, I pulled Mr. Chen out
from his apartment and said quietly to him: “There is a spirit in your house
but it meant no harm. Since your wife can see it then this won’t be good in long
run. The best method is to give it a place to ‘sit’ so that it will not harass your
wife. Further, if you do so; the spirit will help you in your business. I
cannot exorcise this spirit as it stays put before you.”
Mr. Chen didn’t want to move house so he prepared a small
altar in the store room and make offerings to the spirit daily. Indeed, after
the altar is setup, Mrs. Chen didn’t see the spirit anymore and Mr. Chen’s
business is progressing well till today.
