Annihilation Of Fox Spirit (狐妖灭形记)
This is one of the most bizzare case I have come across. It is said that whoever being possessed by a fox spirit; the end of his or her eyes will slant upwards!
are uncommon in Tropical Southeast Asia. There are many stories describing
foxes as charming and cunning and they can attract attentions. So there are
many people worship foxes in Taiwan, Hong Kong and mainland China. In northern
part of China, foxes are worshipped together with weasels and snakes.
What I am
going to describe now is taken from my Taoist master’s note book of a real case
that happened about 30 years ago in Pulau Ketam. This is a pretty sensational case
and some older folks may still have some memory of it even till today.
The fox spirit I will be describing now was a
fierce one and it wasn’t like anything described in old stories. So here is the
real case of fox spirit versus a Taoist told to you first hand:
of this story were from a quite well to do fisherman family. They were known as
Lai family. The Lai family was led by Mr. Lai and Mrs. Lai with two sons and a
daughter. Both of the sons were married except the youngest daughter.
to the narration that Lai family has inherited a wooden fox statue from their
ancestors from China. When the Lai grandparents migrated to Pulau Ketam, they
brought the fox statue with them. It was said the statue was from the Dragon
Tiger Mountain (龙虎山) in JiangXi
on pretty smoothly when grandpa and grandma Lai was around as the fox statue
was pretty well taken care of. However, once the old folks passed away, no one
wanted to worship the fox spirit and the statue was tugged away in a cabinet.
dog gone years, the wife of Mr. Lai's eldest son Mei Lin got pregnant. Everyone
in Lai's family was happy for her especially good old Mr. Lai as this would be
his first grandchild.
passed and one day Mei Lin was helping the family member to tense salted fish
and she accidentally slipped and her baby was miscarriage. Everyone was then
thought that was an accident and consoles Mei Lin so as not to feel too grief.
was as usual for the Lai family until a year later when Mr. Lai’s second son
accidentally tripped over his fishing net and fell overboard. His body was
found by the local marine police a day later.
two mishaps within two consecutive years, Mr. Lai thought something was wrong
but after consulting all the available mediums in the vicinity; the answers
they got was only mere pure luck.
year passed, now it was Mr. Lai’s youngest daughter, Laura started to behave
pretty strange. Well, she acted like a dog at the first glance but both of her
eyes slanting upwards at the ends indicating that it was a fox.
point, the Lai family was almost crippled with two family members gone and one
insane. Mr. Lai didn’t have the mood to fish anymore and he has spent almost of
his saving just to find remedies to cure Laura.
luck was on Mr. Lai’s side as when Mr. Lai almost given up hope in searching
for able persons to save his family around Malaysia, he went to Singapore and
there he bumped into my Taoist master Tsui Hong quite accidentally.
Master Tsui Hong followed Mr. Lai to his house in Pulau Ketam and he asked Mr.
Lai to prepare an earth urn filled with a piece of red cloth, a piece of white
flower and a mirror. The earth urn was to be placed at the center of the house
for a night and Tsui Hong will meditate at some distance from the urn at night.
by my master later, the above assembly will force whatever is in the house to materialize
into the urn. So Tsui Hong waited patiently until he saw a beam of bizarre white
light went into theurn and he
immediately sealed the opening of the urn with a piece of red talismanic cloth.
At this point a shriek came from Laura’s room and a bump followed later,
indicating someone has fallen onto the floor.
was startled and rushed into Laura’s room to find Laura has fainted. People
started to sprinkle water onto Laura’s face and soon Laura had regained
consciousness and started to enquire why everybody was beside her. It appeared
that Laura has no recollection of what had happened to her so far.
dares to touch the urn until the day breaks. By now, the news has spread all
over the village and big crowds had gathered outside Mr. Lai’s house. Everyone
was keen in knowing what was inside the urn.
time is right, Master Sui Hong broke the seal and to every spectator’s
surprised out it came was the wooden figure of a fox! My master wouldn’t want
to be too merciful to this fox spirit so he asked for an axe and chopped down
the head of the figure…
As to every
spectator’s horror, blood splashed out from the neck of the wooden fox as if it
was a real thing!! No one can explain why blood can hide in an old antique
wooden fox. The foul smell of blood continued to stay around the place although
the floor was washed several times.
the case may be, Mr. Lai’s life went back to normal since the ‘execution’ of
the fox spirit. That was recorded in my master’s note book as the above case is
one of the most bizarre case he has came across during his years of becoming a
