In my preceding post called – SENTIENT OBJECTS: JEWELRIES OR OTHER OBJECTS INHABITED BY SPIRITS! I talked about Sentient Objects. Today, allow me to share with you as to what you can do if you suspect your jewelry or other things such as dolls is inhabited by a spirit or otherworldly entity.
But first allow me to explain that although more often than not it is only the hungry ghost or otherworldly entities that will inhabit or possess an object thus making it a Sentient Object, good entities are also known to do this. In Taoism, Taoist Gods or Deities that are properly blessed are all considered Sentient Objects, it is believe that once an object is blessed, a portion of the consciousness of that particular deity or god will inhabit the said image. Thus it should be treated with reverence because it is considered a Sentient Object carrying the essence or energy or a portion of the Taoist Deity or Taoist God.
In Buddhism, this is more of controversy and there are some arguments about this. All schools and lineage of Buddhism believes that simply making an image of Buddha or a Bodhisattva or a Deity makes the image holy because it will definitely carry the energy of the said Buddha, Bodhisattva, or Deity. However, some believes school and lineages believes that having the images blessed will make it holier. However, some schools and lineages like the Pure Land Buddhism (Pureland Buddhism) believes that blessing the said images will make it a Sentient Object in a sense that the said image will start to carry some energy of the Buddha, Bodhisattva or Deity. In Tibetan Buddhism this subject is a little bit unclear, but I can surmise that it is accepted concept because Tibetan Buddhist believes that a certain item consecrated under the energies of a certain Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity should be treated like it’s the Buddha, Bodhisattva or Deity itself. Although, the claim that it becomes a sentient object is not explicit, it always said that the item, which after consecration has become an amulet, is considered as an extension of the Buddha, Bodhisattva or Deity. This is especially true with the Kalachakra and Vajrapani Ruel. With the Surangama Mantra Amulet, it is a little different because a consecrated (The term I used in writing about the Surangama Mantra Amulet is blessed, but really it should be consecrated not just blessed. I will discuss the difference in a future post.) Surangama Mantra Amulet is believed to attract Heavenly Beings that has an affinity with the wearer. But nevertheless, as mentioned the Pure Land Buddhist believes that a blessed or consecrated image becomes a Sentient Object.
Going back to the topic. Positive Sentient Objects, aside from the Taoist and Buddhist images mentioned, although possible are very rare. I would say sentient objects, with the exception of those that were consecrated on a temple, are 95% that of a hungry ghost or otherworldly entity of negative origin.
It will difficult to identify a sentient object unless you’re sensitive to these kinds of energies. However, some signs will be if you’re house is haunted and the energies are stronger at the area where you put your jewelries. You notice that some bad things, or bad emotions, or a fight happens whenever you wear a particular jewelry, especially if they are made up of diamonds, pearls, rubies, sapphires, or emeralds set in gold. But let me issue a caveat now and clarify that with the exception of pearls and diamonds, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t get these stones. You can continue to use ruby, sapphire, emerald, and gold because the benefit from wearing them far outweighs the possibility of it becoming a sentient object.
To harvest the pearl, you have to kill the oyster, an shellfish considered to have consciousness.
I said with the exception of pearls and diamonds. Why? Because most diamonds around 85% to 90% of it are blood diamond, meaning it’s a diamond mined with total suffering and hardship maybe even death of those who mined them. In the case of the pearls, pearls are animate beings. Being the are living things that has consciousness, so in effect, when you get a pearl you either kills the shellfish (oyster)or you hurt them, and carrying a pearl is technically dead animate being so the energy is yin. These two, the diamond and pearl, by virtue of it’s history carries some yin psychic impression, and while they are yang energy objects (especially the diamond) with their yin psychic impression, hungry ghosts and otherworldly entities will natural be attracted to them and may inhabit them.
The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.
If you suspect that your jewelries have turned into a sentient object, I suggest you bring them to a Taoist Priest or a Buddhist Monk who are familiar with exorcising these objects. Depending on how strong the energy is it might take from a month to 3 months to fully cleanse these sentient objects of the negative energy or spirit or entity.
To prevent them from becoming a sentient object you can put a powerful amulet amongst your jewelry. The Vajrapani Ruel or Surangama Mantra Amulet will do. However, if they are already possessed with spirits or entities, they really have to be cleansed by a Taoist Priest or a Buddhist Monk.
Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.
Continue wearing a jewelry that has turned into a sentient object is bad because you might imbibe (permanently) the energy and personality of the spirit or entity. Furthermore, it may bring in some bad luck in your life and worst it might affect your relationships!
