My Ghost Tales!
When I was a small kid, I used to ask my maid innocently why there were shadows floating or smoke passing the walls? There was no fire or burning anywhere. My maid had goose bums and fearfully questioned me "Where, What & How" about what I saw. Then I realised she didn't see a thing of what I saw every minute! I started asking my neighbourhood playmates & they also saw nothing. It never struck me that I was seeing spirits or wandering ghosts. They didn't scare me nor made me bothered at all. They had no faces or forms then............. until my adulthood years. OMG! They were so damn scary at times.
I do not know if it was fate that I ended up furthering my studies in Pennsylvania state instead of New York City. My family objected my choice to study in NYC as my older brother knew how wild I was! He told my mum that I might come back in a coffin if I lived in Manhattan where the nightlife never sleeps. Back in my Penang hometown, I was a frequent face at the old Juliana's London Club, later Cinta Discotheque, The Cinnamon Tree and Babylon Boom Boom. I could go there to party and booze 7 nights straight in a row. That's wild isn't it?
Okay, what's so great about Pennsylvania? They are well known for many haunted old mansions & buildings especially in Gettysburg which is located between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. I had to live in the the all male dormitory floor at Point Park College. Hell, my building was once an old hospital and I shared room with a Japanese guy. Our floor was once the Mental Ward and I was told some patients committed suicide in my next right rooms! Oh shit, I was often bloody scared to shower in the common bathroom which had no doors but just plastic curtains! My classes started very early, so I always had to shower alone. Oh dear, I knew there was always a ghost playing behind the plastic curtain ! It would blow the curtain to stick on my whole body! I often shivered terribly and turned on the hot water's temperature to maximum! It worked! It kept my chilly fear away and ghosts are 'yin' spirits, so they won't like too hot water.
I have 1001 stories to tell you about ghosts, spirits and deities but they are too damn lengthy. I even had harrowing experience where an angry ghost almost strangled me to death while I was asleep in Bukit Jelutong. I just gasped for breathed and held my neck trying to free but I almost gave up. Then "something" above signaled me to chant mantra but I remembered nothing as I was not religious at all. Haaa! I recalled seeing on the back of someone's car sticker & quickly mumbled it. Just one mantra and it was SO Forceful to toss the ghost away! So powerful! It was OM MANE PADME HUM!
Sometimes flashes of white images like this could be a deity too. In Point Park College where I lived, the Korean and Japanese students often saw this type of female spirit passing through their bedroom doors or stood beside the beds and woke them up. Once the white female ghost spoke to the Korean and he screamed - "Oh sorry I no speak English!" and dived under his blankets shaking in terror & fear!!!
The "Yin" areas that are popular hangouts for wandering spirits or angry ghosts are -
Hospitals - Many lost or undelivered souls float there 24/7.
Mortuaries - Same as above while some are hoping to exchange bodies.
Cinemas - They love cool air-cond and dark 'yin' areas while enjoying good movies by sitting on the aisle steps or the empty seats beside you. Sometimes they would share & inhale your pop corns or coke. If not enough, they might inhale your body's good frequency & energy. You will come walking out dizzy and sleepy after the movies!
Public Toilets - Some ghosts love to eat or inhale the shit and this is no joke. The female's disposed sanitary pads are yummy to some.
Cemetery - It is their territory. What are you doing here? - they might ask.
We must truly respect and understand the spiritual world always. Someday we will be joining them too when we pass away. They are just different frequencies in other dimensions which overlap each other. Sometimes our beloved ones came back to visit our homes too, out of love and concern. Sometimes our creditors tagged along to revenge or lost spirits passed our house.
I often have to purify my condo when there's just too much passing spirits. They could stick onto our clothes or our friends to hop into your house.
I have observed many Indians and Malays who are so smart to 'smoke' their homes with the 'kemeyan' herbs. I would buy those similar but more expensive and fragrant ones imported from Nepal or Tibet. They could be mountain weeds or grounded sandal woods. Usually the monks would have chanted over a thousand mantras into those incense ingredients before reaching us.
You can buy those ingredients from many Tibetan Buddhist temples or Buddhist prayer shops.
Just place them on the burner, light up and carry them around every room including the toilets and under the bed! The 'yang' smoke will emit the mantra all over the house and the 'yin' spirits will just leave for somewhere else. If you can chant mantras while carrying the incense burner, it would be more powerful.
When I had bad horrifying dreams, I knew some funny ghosts must be roaming inside my house. After smoking the house, my sleep would be so shiok and relaxing. with sweet dreams.
Have you ever had any Ghostly encounters?
