Witchcraft: It Is Not What You Think It Is But It Is More Common Than We Think It Is (Part 3)

Published Nobyembre 15, 2016 by jptan2012

In the first two parts of this post, I talked about how witchcraft is more common that we think it is, shared with you some real stories about witchcraft, and also a short thing on what makes it effective.

This is going to be the shortest of all posts about Witchcraft series. First, if you want to protect yourself from witchcraft, I suggest that you read my post written months ago on the 5 effective ways of protecting yourself from witchcraft. You can see the link below.

But what can you do if you suspect witchcraft is being done to you. First, you have to be absolutely sure that whatever you are experiencing, if its a form a of an illness, doesn’t have a natural cause. This means that you will have to see a physician first. If you have ruled this out, then I suggest seek somebody who is familiar with these things, and make sure you trust this person. If you are Catholic you can talk to your priest about this. Please do not get disappointed or discouraged if their initial reaction is the possibility of a natural cause. This should be expected and should be appreciated.

The most common question is as to what are the cures for witchcraft. In all the stories that I shared, there is no common cure or approach that my Guru Lama suggested. The way it was handled is unique and catered to each case, because there are different forms of witchcraft or sorcery. Some of the most common amulets used were the Vajrapani Ruel and the Surangama Mantra Amulet and salt, but even these are dependent on the severity of the witchcraft and as to how it is being done.

But the most important of all is to make sure that you protect yourself even before the witchcraft happen. Aside from the amulets or suggested things in the earlier post. One way to protect yourself is to have a strong relationship with the higher beings, whether it you consider the higher being as God or Buddha or Allah. Sincerely doing good things for other people is also an effective protection, because it increases your good karma and good chi.

Witchcraft: It Is Not What We Think It Is But It Is More Common Than We Think It Is (Part 2)

Published Nobyembre 14, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, I talked about how witchcraft is more common than we think. In today’s post I would like to talk about as to how easy it is to do witchcraft and who can do it.

The truth is some people can do witchcraft even without them knowing it. This is more commonly called as Evil Eye or Usog in Filipino. However, for the purpose of this article, let’s focus on the type of witchcraft or sorcery that is done on purpose. Who are the types of people who can do it?

For witchcraft or sorcery to be effective there must be some kind of emotions involve. This emotion is usually either love or anger or both.

Witchcraft or sorcery usually connotes a lot of negative image because we always think that witchcraft is meant to do something bad or harm to a person. Unfortunately, this is the most common reason why witchcraft is done or why people seek to have witchcraft or sorcery is done. However, witchcraft or sorcery is really simply an act wherein you interfere in the flow of energies and set out to put an energy that is meant to manifest physically. Having said that witchcraft or sorcery is simply an act, whether it is good or bad depends on the intention and the final output of the energy set out by the one who propagate or initiates it.

In Taoism, the religion, a Taoist priest is almost always familiar with witchcraft. The burning of Fu or Talisman papers are in so many ways an act of witchcraft wherein you call on an higher entity to set out a task. In my previous posts, I have discussed that in Taoism, the Gods, which are the Heavenly Beings in Buddhism, are like humans in a way that they still have temperaments, they get angry, the love, they get tired. They can also do wrong things. What a Taoist priest or a Taoist medium (somebody who is familiar to tap into the powers of this beings) does is they set out to call on these beings to do their wishes. Sometimes, these wishes may not be very right, or to put it simply I have seen Taoist mediums that may set out to do more harm. Like the story I shared on the preceding post, a Taoist priest or medium is involve in giving Diane’s mother – in – law the tool for her to have power over her son’s and husband’s will. Whether the said Taoist medium knows the intentions are pure or not, although I think if the Taoist medium is powerful enough to make such a tool, he or she will also be powerful enough to see the intentions, is an entirely different matter.

The truth is it is open knowledge amongst most Chinese and Taoist that a Taoist priest or Taoist medium who are familiar in tapping the powers of entities can do either good witchcraft or bad witchcraft.

Having said that, if one is familiar on how to tap into the other realms it is easy to do witchcraft or sorcery. In fact, sometimes you don’t even need to have the technical knowledge, sometimes all you need is a very strong emotion and a strong intent.

Witchcraft: It’s Not What You Think But It Is More Common Than We Think It Is (Part 1)

A few weeks ago a reader shared with me that he thinks he is a victim of witchcraft done by his ex – wife. Not really an expert in identifying witchcraft or sorcery and so I dismissed it and told him that it is not my expertise but will just ask my Guru Lama about it. Honestly, at that time I honestly thought that it was just a mild hallucination and desire to blame somebody else for what is happening. GP if you get to read this, I’m sorry for thinking that way. But really there are a lot of people who thinks that they are being a victim of witchcraft or sorcery but a lot of times it really just is their own bad karma or bad Feng Shui.

However, I went to ask my Guru Lama about GP and true enough according to my Guru Lama GP is a victim of witchcraft done thru a medium (a witch or somebody who is familiar with it) by his ex – wife.

My Guru Lama, sort of reminded me what I should know already by this time. That is WITCHCRAFT or SORCERY is not really how it is portrayed on TV or movies, wherein the witch is an ugly girl with a sharp nose, messy hair, with a cauldron and a voodoo doll. Although it is possible that some of them uses a voodoo doll. My Guru Lama also said that witchcraft or sorcery is more common that we think. To stress the lesson to me and to remind me not to be judgmental my Guru Lama reminded of some of the cases that I encountered that involves witchcraft or sorcery. Although some of these we didn’t really call witchcraft but if you analyze it, it is really witchcraft.

Allow me to share some the cases here on this article.

One of the cases involves DAS. For the purpose of this article let’s call her Diane. Diane was married to a Chinese guy who seems to be totally controlled by his mother, Diane’s mother – in – law. To make the long story short, Diane’s husband, let’s just call him ES, got a gift from his mother. The gift is a faux diamond set in silver. Aside from ES, his father, Diane’s father – in – law, also got one. Now the question here is, why were the other children and Diane and the grandchildren were not given the same pendant by the mother – in – law given that the reason given by the mother – in – law is that it is for protection. She is also very well capable giving all of them the same pendant because (1) it doesn’t look very expensive, and (2) the mother – in – law is really reach that she can afford to give one to all the members of the family even if it cause (exaggeration) around one hundred thousand Philippine peso each. However, Diane noticed that since having the pendant, her husband and father – in – law seems to always bow to the will of her mother – in – law, who totally dislike having another independent, self – reliant woman In their house like Diane. ES and his father have also a lot of times grown to rely on Diane, something that her mother – in – law detests. My Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teacher and a Taoist Priest in Hong Kong confirmed that the pendant given by Diane’s mother – in – law to ES and to her father – in – law is a way or means to control them. A lot of people can argue that this can be just a product of an over imaginative mind. That’s possible. But explain why when the ES stops wearing the pendant, he stopped being his mother’s pawn.

Another story is that of a married wife. BY is a happily married wife until he found out that her husband had an affair with two different women. When he was found out, the husband professed his love for BY and his family and promised that he will stop seeing his mistresses. They didn’t have any problem with the first mistress, but the second mistress is out to get him back. And so there are times that the husband seems to be not himself. He will all of a sudden feel anxious and feel as if the girl is calling him. There are times that he will just stare into space and seems to be somewhere else. It was later on confirmed by my Guru Lama and another psychic consulted by BY that this second mistress has an employed the services of a witch to help bring back BY’s husband to her.

There is yet another story of another reader whose son is madly fell in love with a older woman of what can be considered is of an ill repute. The woman works as a hospitality girl; she is a kept woman of a politician. When the mother of the guy found out about the relationship, she set out to break them apart. The son came to his senses and went back to his mom’s loving arms. That’s when the problem and change in his son started. According to the mom, his son started staring into space; there are times that he seems to be awake without any ‘spirit’ inside him. Still there are times that the son would act like the woman is the most important thing or most important person in his life. Still there re times that he will sleepwalk, something that he never did before he got involved with the said woman, he will walk out of his house. But whenever he will come to his senses, he will go back to his mom’s house. However, there are times, that he himself doesn’t understand why it seems that he is unable to control himself and stop thinking about the woman. His mom brought him to see a psychiatrist, thinking that he might be depress because of the break – up. He end up seeing two different psychiatrist who saw him several times, when he was in control of his senses. They concluded that there is nothing wrong with him and that he knows that the woman is no good for him. However, still all of a sudden he would look for the woman and act strange. Until one day, he sleep walked going to the house of the woman. When his brother found out that he was not in bed, he called his mom and dad, and his mom knew that he must have gone to the house of the woman. They followed their instinct and went to see the woman. They were met by the woman’s mother who told them to leave. They refuse and asked the barangay officials to help and intercede, but since their son is already 20 years old, technically speaking he is an adult and if it was his free will to be there they cannot do anything. Still they insist to see his son. The woman then came out to talk to them to assure them that their son is speaking soundly and wanted to be with her. The mom refuses to give up on his son, and so she and her husband continued to argue and insist on seeing the son. All of a sudden, their son came running out crying and said he doesn’t understand why he went to the house of the woman. He went home with them. It was then that the mother thought that it maybe witchcraft. This was confirmed by an albularyo (Filipino Shaman) who tried to break the power of the witchcraft, but the sleep walking, the depressed moods, the staring into space moments continue to happen until the mom having read my blog contacted me. I in turn contacted my Guru Lama who also confirmed that it is witchcraft.

Still, there is another story of another reader whose child kept on getting sick, really sick that she has to drop out of school. This was a big blow to her because this happened right after when her problem with her husband just got solved. You see her husband fell in love with another woman, a very rich woman, but even before she found out about it her husband ended the affair with the other woman, she found out about it because he admitted the affair to her. This created a temporary friction between the two of them because she cannot fathom the fact the he betrayed her love and trust, plus it doesn’t help that the other woman seems bent on destroying their relationship and still pursues the guy. In the end their love won and they patch things up. This was when their only child started getting sick. They initially unable to find out the disease, but it was later found out that their child was suffering from leukemia. They sought the help of some of the best doctors in UST Hospital, but the child seems to be getting worse and is not responding to chemotherapy as well as the doctors expect. They were told by a friend who is supposed to be psychic that there is witchcraft involved. This was when they contacted me, and I in turn contacted my Guru Lama who confirmed that indeed witchcraft is involved. By this time, they have forgotten about the other woman, but my Guru Lama is the one who brought it up and said the other woman wants them to run into a big problem and run into financial problem, to come to a point where in the husband will go back to her and ask for financial help. Remember the other woman is really rich.

These are just some of the stories that my Guru Lama reminded me. And yes, I realized that Witchcraft or Sorcery is more common that we thought it is. It is more accessible that we thought of. We should take away our stereotypes against witchcraft or sorcery but we should also realize that it is more common that we realize.

And so going back to GP. He is indeed suffering from witchcraft. To make things worst, his second wife, and daughter from his second wife are getting affected also. GP himself started getting ill and was diagnosed with a heart ailment. My Guru Lama confirmed he is being attacked through witchcraft by his ex – wife. The ex – wife seems to have contacted a relative who is familiar with it. She is doing this simply because she wants GP and his family to suffer to the point that GP go back to her begging for forgiveness. GP’s case is work in progress; my Guru Lama is helping break the witchcraft done on him. Let’s all pray it works.

Diane’s case is also still a work in progress. I lost touch with BY so don’t know what really happened. But the son who fell in love with the woman of ill repute is now totally sane and has gotten rid of the power of the witchcraft over him. He is now working and earning a good sum of money every month. After a series of chemotherapy who at the beginning she was found not to respond well on the said medicines, the child who suffered from witchcraft because of her father’s other woman is now doing well and is back in school. The cure recommended by my Guru Lama varies, but usually involves powerful amulets.

But looking back at the stories, you will see the witchcraft involves people who have some relationships with the one who propagated the witchcraft. Why? This is because witchcraft or sorcery is more effective if there is an emotional or even binding relationship between the one who propagates it and the victim. By binding relationship I refer to either marriage or parent and child. A strong emotion is also a powerful conduit, so love and extreme anger are strong conduit. In the case of the child who had leukemia, she was not involve, but either the love or anger of the other woman to her dad is the conduit, and in turn that conduit is extended through the love of his dad for her.

You will notice also that most of the witchcraft involves a woman. It’s not because they are more evil but it is because a woman’s emotions is naturally stronger than that of a man, and emotion acts a conduit to make the witchcraft more powerful. Having said that it doesn’t mean that a man cannot be a conduit for witchcraft to be effective.

Fu, The Taoist’s Magical Paper Talisman

Published Agosto 15, 2012 by jptan2012

I have been wanting to write about the Fu (Mandarin) or Hu (Foo Kien) for quite some time now, however, I debated whether it is proper for me to write about the Fu because it is something that is not easily available or something that can be bought in a store.

This Fu is from a Taoist temple in Valenzuela called Bi Tsong Put (pronounced as Bee Chong Poot). Depending on the Fu, one usually burns a set, one set is usually 3 pieces.

Fu or Hu is a Taoist magical paper talisman. Fu is an ancient and special form of ‘magic’ or sorcery (sorcery is not exactly negative unless use in a negative way) that uses special characters or images or symbols or prayers or words ‘printed’ on a yellow rice paper in red ink. It is believed that a Fu can store a magic spells and good chi. While anybody can make a Fu or Hu, it entails a special skill and blessing from a Taoist God  for you to be able to lock the magic spell or chi in the said magical paper talisman. To do this one has to be an ordained Taoist priest or a Taoist God medium. The said chi and spell is further locked into the Fu by making sure that it passes through the incense burner dedicated to the said Taoist God, Immortal or Deity mentioned in the Fu.

Anyone can activate and tap into the power of the Fu by carrying the magical paper talisman on one’s body, putting them on the window or door, or placing in the room, or simply by burning them. Most Fu or Hu are burned while one calls on the God, Deity or Immortal represented by the Fu followed by the intent. However, as mentioned, there are some Fu that are to be worn on the body like an amulet, or place on the door, etc.

Fu(s), I believe, is one of the most powerful talisman in the world, provided you get it from a reliable source, and from somebody who is not driven by monetary reasons. Unfortunately, in the Philippines, there are some temples that sell their Fu. I don’t believe that this is right, especially, if there are patrons who have greatly benefited from tapping the power of the Fu, that they sponsor printing of Fu(s).

There are different kinds of Fu(s), depending on the temple and sometimes depending on the purpose or intent of the person needing the Fu. One can use a Fu to invoke a God/Deity/Immortal’s help, to protect a household, heal the sick, or exorcise demons or bad spirits. Some people would associate the Fu like a petition paper, or a court order depending on the purpose or intent.

This is a Fu that I burn every morning. It is a Fu of a Taoist Temple in Abad Santos St., Manila called – CHEAT TAI SOON. Unlike most Fu, one set of this is 7 pieces.

There is no clear record as to what Chinese civilization first used the Fu, however, the Fu is mentioned in a lot of Chinese religious and political texts. An apocryphal Taoist text call Ku Wei Shu or Old Mystical Test, the role of Fu is associated with the last legendary Five Emperors of China, especially with Great Emperor Yu, the mysterious Emperor who founded the Hsia Dynasty.

It is said that the Great Emperor has stop a terrible flood that has devastated most of China by burning several Fu of the Goddess of the North Star.

This is the Fu of the Goddess of Mercy / Bodhisattva of Compassion / Kuan Yin. I make sure I burn at least one set of her Fu everyday.

Personally, I can attest to the power of the Fu, and I use it a lot in conjunction of my mantras and Feng Shui.

There was this one time when one of our houseboy went into a epileptic attack, some say he was being possessed by a spirit, we don’t really know, but I specifically remember my mom just got a set of Fu, burned it and after less than a minutes our houseboy became visibly relax. He was sent to the hospital, but the hospital said that they don’t think he had an epileptic attack, and our houseboy claims that he saw a dark shadow hovering over him.

This is the Fu of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven – Sun Wukong. Sun Wukong has three different kind of Fu. This one is for personal, family matters.

Another experience with the power of the Fu that I had, happened when I was still involve in an NGO. One of our managers got an educational grant in Berlin, but he has to pay for her own airfare and board and lodging. The organization raised funds for her board and lodging, however, nobody has volunteered to shoulder her airfare. We decided to write to several politicians, travel agencies, and famous businessman. Unfortunately, all of them turned down our request, except for one Chinese businessman. When we called up his office, his secretary informed us that her boss has read the letter but that he really hasn’t replied. We are quite desperate already because our colleague is scheduled to leave in 2 days and she still hasn’t raise her airfare fund. We beg the secretary of the Chinese businessman to give us time to present our cause to the businessman himself, the secretary agreed and said we should go to their office that same afternoon and she’ll see whether she can give us 5 minutes with the Chinese businessman. We immediately left, and for some reason, I decided to bring a set of Fu (one set is 3 pieces) of The Great Sage, Equal of Heaven Sun Wukong.On our way, the secretary called my colleagues mobile phone and said that there’s no need for us to go because her boss has already informed her that he can’t finance my colleague’s trip. My colleague informs the secretary that we are already downstairs and begged her to still allow seeing the Chinese businessman. The secretary agreed and I decided to burn the Fu with the intent of getting the businessman to finance my colleague’s trip to Berlin. To make the long story short, we went up, had an audience with the businessman, and was asked a single question – How would the country benefit from this trip? – My friend gave her reply and she got the funds for her airfare!

This is another Sun Wukong’s Fu. This one is for business. There’s another one but I don’t have a copy of it, that is for health.

I know somebody who is sick of cancer and was given a ‘death sentence’ by his doctor. He started burning some Fu and now he is well. Even his doctor was surprised that he won over the cancer.

There are a lot more stories about the power of the Fu, be it about money, business, personal problems, etc. The Fu has always made magical solutions for seemingly unsolvable problems.

For one to be able to tap into the power of the Fu, the Fu is burned. You call on the Immortal/Deity represented in the Fu, then you say your intent. However, there are some Fu that can be worn on the body and or placed on the door, etc.
