A Little Lesson on 2013-05-29

This is one of my Dad's experiences and he's given permission for me to share them.

My grandparents are the traditional chinese folks. According to my Dad, they were undecided whether to punish him further by caning. In the end they decided that he was punished enough by the pain and took him to see a temple medium. Who gave him one of those chinese tailsman that you are supposed to burn and mix the ashes with water and drink it down 😭

Thanks for commenting!
[at] valkricry I agree with your opinion since we usually see spirits that that take the form of our religion and influences
[at] elfstone that's the "mind over matter" thing right. That could be the cause too but oh well, it's pretty cool either way. After all respecting our beliefs and the unknown is the best path
