I used to have a very close friend cum colleague, Aik (a General Manager) who has this 3rd eye. If he allows it, he can go into trance and Guan Yin will be in him. He can ‘see’ things at funeral too.
Like I said, I am now a Catholic. But I used to
do believe in Guan Yin, goddess of mercy whom you can rely on if you are in trouble. Long time ago, I never bother about religion at all. Then, when I have two kids, one of them started talking on his own and became hostile and wanted to stay in the room alone talking his toy dog, Bluey. You can say it is imagination run wild, part of growing up and etc. But sometimes he would cried without reason and cannot stop. At one time, he cried so bad, we rushed him to the 24 hour clinic.
But the moment he saw a dog, he kept quite. Do you know that people born in the year of the dragon has the highest level of chi (or charisma or good luck)? We (that’s me) never have to worry about any bad year except dog year.
In olden China myth, the dog is the one who can feud with the dragon. No other animal can. (Yeah, I am allergic to people born in the dog too.) So, about 12 years go, things started to go cuckoo. (Next year is dog year again but hey, I got Jesus! I am saved. Phew…)
So, I was staying in Bukit Jambul flats (the older block behind BJ Complex) and my house has no altar or any kind of protection. And I can ‘see’ shadows. It is like when you are watching TV, the side of your eyes notice something and you turn but see nothing. Or if you are in a room, you thought that someone is in the other room. You call out and it is not. (Note that old people who have sodium imbalance can get a confused mind, very much like seeing dead people etc.)
One day, my almost 2 years old #2 son pointed to the curtains and asked “what is it?” If you are a mother, you know your child well enough to see that he is serious. So, we asked him back. He can’t talk much at that age. I cheekily asked him, “What you see – alien? Green green thing? Monster? Tell mommy.” Actually, I mocked. He did not say anything.
Next morning….I woke up with severe tummy ache and before I could reached the toilet, I fainted. Fainting is nothing new. But I lost bladder and bowel control. That is major problem. I was only late 20s. I went to every -gist doctors, check stomach, heart, brain, colon and did ECG etc. Nothing wrong with me.
Then, my kids started getting fever for no reason. I was desperate and asked Aik what to do. He took me to see an old lady medium. Aik did not know where I stay. I used to pooh-pooh at mediums ‘cos many of them are conmen out to cheat money.
But Ah Koh (the medium) does not accept any money. I am free to drop RM2 or any amount angpow. So, that’s why Aik trusted her.
Fuhlamak – the moment Ah Koh went into trance, she described my apartment. Facing south, the 9th block, on the 9th floor and unit number! (Beware, some mediums rear iblis/bad spirits who can do these investigation. Even Catholics are aware of this because sometimes, people will steal the ‘wafer’ which we Catholics take as the blood and body of Christ to feed these iblis/syaitan/bad spirits.)
If getting our apartment number right, I would have thought that Aik must told Ah Koh (probably did some HR check or something). Anyway, Aik is a trusted friend and earning good salary without needing to cheat poor me. So, we believed that Guan Yin really come to us because I was that desperate.
When Ah Koh was in trance, she (or Guan Yin) told me that we had lived in that apartment for five years (how can she know?) and since there is no protection, spirits are free to pass by and stay around to play.
After a few weeks, upon the urging of my sisters and sisters-in-law, I started worshipping Guan Yin. And life turned out very well for us with good health, good fortune. We even struck Magnum 4D repeatedly. (but don’t expect or demand from Guan Yin, ok?)
Guan Yin, to me, is a very comforting figure to look up to when you are in trouble. When I was phasing over to be a Christian, I also look up to the Blessed Virgin Mary as a comforting figure. I do not ask for any fortune but mere protection for my children.
Now, what made me turned to Christianity is one day – after Ah Koh had passed away, I went to see another medium. This conman is a big liar as I can see through it. I was pleading for Vincent’s life and you know what? This conman said he is Guan Yin and he (she) does not heal sick people! So, he said he is going to summon the beggar god. And when beggar god got into him, beggar god said he must go to the hospital to heal Vincent. And I have to pay him! WTF? So, I lost my faith.
If you asked me, I know that there are indeed spirits passing by. But if you have a faith, they are not able to get into your level. For me, I do often pray for the safety of my kids and husband. If we make long trip, we would pray for a safe journey. And now, my little toddler can do his nightly prayers in the cutest way. It goes something like this:
1) Do cross but mixed up all the direction like head, stomach, chin etc
2) Say – Pader (Father), son and holy pipit (spirit)
3) Say – Plis potect (please protect) my papa, mommy, koh koh, Vincent and Jesus (?).
4) Mamen (Amen)
The whole of Penang were making offerings to the good brothers just now. (I got my date mixed up, sorry it was not yesterday) If you are not a Taoist, don’t mock. That is disrespect. Treat these offerings with respect, avoid stepping on those food left on the roadside. And if you are Taoists, please don’t offer pork and left it all over the road (like outside my apartment). That is inconsiderate (to the Muslims).
**As I stated, I am a Catholic. I pray in tongues and can rest in the Spirit when I have privacy or in Shalom group. It is not something I want my atm or children (or any unbelievers) to witness unless they have the same depth of belief of the Holy Spirit. So, probably I am more transparent and hence, easily encounter good and bad spirits.**
I am sharing this not to scare you into believing ghosts but rather to assure that if you can believe in ghosts, you should believe in God.
Oh ya, got more stories. Till then….let’s sing We are not alone….
