Seeing Ghosts: Japanese Vs Chinese (中日见鬼法)
My Japanese friends would go all out in order to come into
contact with ghosts. Some of their games may be harmful and dangerous when
played alone. If one wishes to really experience with spiritual world, the best
way is using water as a media. Below is the how-to:
This game ideally played between midnight to 3am. It is best
if the place is a known haunted place and there must be a container big enough
to let an adult to lay in it. A
bathtub will do, but a quiet pond or lake with clear water is best.
you have found a bathtub in a haunted hotel, and then fill the bathtub with
water at midnight. The water level should be able to submerge yourself when
lying flat in the bathtub face up.
perform a simple conjuration, or just utter some sentences provoking spirits in
the vicinity. You may say something like: “Come out! I am not afraid of you…”
After a few
rounds of calling, take a deep breath and submerge yourself fully into the
water. Keep yourself in the water as long as you can. After some try, you
should be able to hear some whispering noises near your ears. If you open your
eyes, you too shall see various shadows from under the water upwards.
panic at this point, for if you panic; the water may enter your lung and there
is a danger of drowning.
lesser dangerous method is the Chinese style of lying in a grave hole.
must go to a graveyard and find an already dug out grave hole. It may be a new
hole dug out for next day’s funeral service; or it may be an old grave that was
dug out for some reasons.
should bring some joss papers (for door opening), a pair of white candles and
some incense. At the grave hole, you should light the candles and incense and
then throw some joss papers into the air. If the joss papers are blown away by
the wind; then this is an indication that spirits are around.
point, please do so and enter and lay flat in the grave hole with your face up.
Relax and slowly you should hear some noise around the grave hole, if you are
lucky, you may see some white figures hovering above the grave too. People
believe that those are spirits visiting their ‘new neighbors’.
For best result, it is best if you can lie in a real coffin
wearing the traditional Chinese funeral clothing! That is, if you are really
brave enough of course.
I am not in a position to say which method works best, but I
dislike the idea of being submerged in water… that would bring one a step
closer to come face to face with death. Again, please don’t try these rituals. All risks are on you.
