In a psychotherapist’s
view, spirit possession is a byproduct of cultural influence and human’s own
mind game. For example, if we don’t tell our children ghost stories, then the
children will not have any clues of what ghosts really are. Added to that, it
does not add any values to our society when the public is exposed to too many
supernatural related issues.
Below is a
very dramatic classical case in psychology; it is a little long winded but worth
mentioning regardless if one is interested in psychology or otherwise.
The case of Satan possessed Mr. A
Mr. A is a
30 odd year old businessman whose father was a farmer. Although Mr. A was
brought up in an environment where superstitions prevails; he was not an ardent
Mr. A has
an over sensitive character; he also tends to indulge in endless loops of mind
conflicts and deep thoughts that caused him to self-punish and feeling guilty
on small matters. Having said so, Mr. A has no major psychological illnesses.
begun during the winter of 1890 after Mr. A returned from a business trip. He
became saddened and quiet. After that he lost the ability to speak. One day,
Mr. A fainted right after hugging his wife and kids. Poor old Mr. A suddenly
awakened two days later burst into queer laughter and shouted that ‘they’ are
burning him with fire.
situation worsened next day as Mr. A said that the house was filled with demons
and that the Satan has possessed his body. It was the Satan who has forced Mr.
A to coax out vulgar words. He subsequently escaped from his house and
attempted suicide in various occasions.
Mr. A was sent to Salpetriere Hospital and being treated by Charcot, who was a renowned
psychologist in the 19th century. Mr. A was subsequently referred to
Pierre Janet (1859 – 1947).
“Who are you?” – “I am the Satan!”
After Mr. A became Janet’s patient, Janet
discovered that Mr. A always curse God with a lower and coarser tone; followed
by an outburst of high pitch voice saying that it was the Satan who has forced
him to do such actions. These actions naturally can be confused as ‘demonic
At the beginning,
Janet used all available method to make Mr. A responsive to standard treatments
but failed because “the Satan inside Mr. A” was too powerful.
The subconscious communication channel
this incident, Janet found that hysterical patients observe their surroundings
through ‘subconscious layer’. For example, when a hysterical patient speaks and
one whispers: “lift your right arm”; the patient will comply while continue to
speak. Interestingly, the patient will not be able to perceive his/her action.
asked Mr. A to lift his right arm and true enough that Mr. A complied. And when
he was enquired on the reason that he has raised his right arm, Mr. A startled
and said: “The Satan had played a trick on me again!”
Mr. A’s Unforgiveable Sin
detailed interrogations, it finally transpired that Mr. A had visited a
prostitute during his last business trip. This action was insignificant to
many, but such action has caused Mr. A to feel guilty and his body begun to
itch and all in all led Mr. A in thinking that such was his ‘deserved
punishment’. Mr. A’s impulse wanting to repent caused him to lose his ability
to speak. His dream concerning being burnt in hell and that Satan has possessed
body causing Mr. A to curse God as he believed that it was Satan who did such
act with the original Mr. A dead.
Mr. A was hypnotized
and being told that what he has done was “not too severe”. His wife was brought
in to tell him personally that she has forgiven her husband’s unfaithful behavior
while Mr. A was still in his hypnotic state.
think that since Janet must have some kind of magical power as he was able to
communicate with the ‘Satan’ that possessed Mr. A and subsequently cast the
Satan out. In fact, Mr. A has a split personality and it wasn’t the case that
the Satan has any power; the ‘Satan’ was just Mr. A’s vivid subconscious mind.
psychotherapist’s ‘exorcism’ is base on a set of well founded theories and
treatments where they strive to remove patients’ internal mind conflicts. When
the objective is achieved, the ‘Satan’ automatically disappears. These
psychological treatments are totally different from secular religious and
magical exorcisms. Please don’t be confused.
medium is commonly referred to as a person who can communicate with spirits. My
psychiatrist friend Dr. Wong told me that most of the psychiatrists have some
doubts about mediums though there are many evidences that most mediums are genuine.
to Dr. Wong who has come in contact with many mediums and he merely dismissed
them as having vivid imaginations and more often than not, the spirits are only
hallucinations. These types of hallucinations are mainly the byproduct of
cultural making and individual mind games. Hence when someone has seen a ghost,
psychiatrist will say that he/she is imagining things; while a medium will say
that the person is possessed.
continued to say that in psychiatry, spirit possession is termed as ‘delusion
of control’ and this is itself an illness because once the person believes that
a spirit is taking control of his/her body; his/her normal living will be
affected. Hallucinations may be the cause of excessive dopamine in the brain’s
nerve system. Drugs can be used to control the dopamine but it will be
difficult to totally eliminate it. Another downside is that such drugs are very
expensive and may cost a few thousands of dollars in public hospital; many
folds in private ones.
view on possession is attributed to culture-bond syndrome and this is not
considered as an illness. For example, a medium when possessed by a spirit
through controlled ritual; turns into another person. But he/she returns to
him/herself after the ritual and this person’s daily life is not affected by
The word of a psychiatrist: save both spirits
other hand, Dr. Wong suggested that there is indeed a value in the spirit
mediums as they are closer to general public and can ‘cure’ the sick through ‘suggestive
techniques’. Added to the fact that the ratio of a psychiatrist to total
population is no match to the available mediums, it is undeniably that the
mediums are normally the first line of defense even with the advent of modern
medical treatments. So, the importance of spirit mediums is undeniable.
so, Dr. Wong continued to caution that many mediums are illiterate, immature
and hysterical and this is definitely a danger for a sober person like you and
me to consult them.
thinks that sicknesses are caused by physical ‘disease’ and the psychological ‘illnesses’.
Since every individual’s mental background varies, the same ‘disease’ may have
a very different outcome. He also discovered that in Southeast Asia, people
tends to adopt a ‘combinatory’ method; i.e. while seeking the aid of modern
medicine, they also go to a medium for spiritual help.
Dr. Wong advise we exercise caution when visiting a medium and make use of our judgments
and common sense. I would leave the judgment to you as I am being categorized
by Dr. Wong as psychosis even though we still drink coffee together J!
it is a merit creating activity when one goes to a temple to pray. However, not
everyone has the same merit when comes to praying to gods and goddesses in just
any temple as when the wrong spirits are being worshipped. In this situation,
one may suffer from family issues, bad business investments, ill health and
even crazy (走火入魔).
this be? A temple is supposed to be a sacred place and none of the above
situations should happen to worshippers? Well, it will depend on what temple
one chose to go really. There are many big and small temples in SEA, many of
them are situated in the urban area; many more are located far away from
civilization. Amongst these temples, many are set up for authentic religious
activities while no lesser are sole meant for ‘business’ purposes. Why not?
Those faithful believers would donate hefty amount of money either to pay
tribute to their patron deities; on the other hand, the donation also a means
of compensation of bad deeds someone has done.
The fact is
that the gods and goddesses will not mind whether one pays tribute to them.
This is not the case when ones go to a temple and worshipped evil spirits
instead. Let’s refer to some of the below real examples:
and Mrs. Lee divorced because a medium in a temple said so.
director of a trading company was declared bankrupt after becoming the chairman
of a Taoist temple in Penang.
of Mr. Fan (范) is the best of all. Yes, I am right. He is
Fan, not ‘Fun’. Well, Mr. Fan’s experience was no fun at all to be honest. Mr.
Fan was an automobile accessories dealer and his business was booming before he
visited a small Taoist temple in Balik Pulau. He was a free thinker and didn’t
believe in spirits, his ordeal began when he went into the temple and said, “Unless
I see ghosts with my naked eyes, there is no ghost in this world!”
enough, as Mr. Fan had wished for, his first ghost sighting occurred in his
bedroom at about 2am where he saw a 12 feet tall ghostly apparition that faded into
thin air after a few seconds. Later Mr. Fan started to see ghosts even when he
was driving, eating and even taking his bath. It was not until quite recently
that Mr. Fan felt his soul was about to travel out of his body that he paid me
Why is it
that an ordinary place of worship can be overtaken by spirits and not by
deities? Well, this has a lot to do with the temple caretaker. If the caretaker
is a righteous person, then deities will stay; otherwise spirits will dwell in
the statues instead. Unlike gods and goddesses, spirits will steal worshipper’s
energy and cause visitors to suffer from ill health and bad luck.
time when you feel cold, unease and goose bumps; then your best bet is not to
enter these temples. It is also best to visit more established temples and the
best time to visit any temple is before 12 noon when the Yang energy is at its
height. Finally, please don’t worship the deities you are not familiar with as
their energies may not suit you.

willing to give it a try. My hats off for the one who came out with these mumbo

If you don't believe in this system, treat it as if another urban legend.
I am told that Deva Yakong is pretty powerful and its flying needles can travel under ground!! So pay particular attention when drawing this talisman ;-)!
