Cổ Trùng – Dark Sorcery 2

(Continued from Cổ Trùng – Dark Sorcery 1) Okay, so the attempt to create a Cổ Trùng was a huge success! The sorcerer has finally created a brand new demonic critter, and so you’re thinking he’s itching to take it out and see what havoc this thing can wreak amongst the general populace. To that I say: Not so fast! The critter is still too young … Continue reading Cổ Trùng – Dark Sorcery 2

Cổ Trùng – Dark Sorcery 1

(Continued from Hexagram 18 – Poisonous Dark Sorcery) Cổ Trùng In the ancient world, the word Cổ Trùng include poisonous toads, frogs, snakes, spiders, scorpions, centipedes, as well as various other types of animals we would not normally consider poisonous. This also includes certain types of ticks and butterflies, and even bacteria and viruses. Please don’t misunderstand. I am not disparaging those animals sharing the … Continue reading Cổ Trùng – Dark Sorcery 1

The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain 4

(Continued from The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain 3) The Princess Kim Đình  continued to watch the old wizard with horrified fascination.  She still had possession of her remaining three paternal souls, but perhaps that was because he had not completed the spell yet.  The wizard Cao Sơn’s eyes were tragic, but his shoulders remained stiff and unyielding.  Speaking into the air, he gave her … Continue reading The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain 4

Lên Đồng 5: Possession of the Frightful Kind


If you have been reading anything I’ve written so far in regards to possessions (of the spiritual kind, not of the monetary sort), it would seem as if we Asians view possession as something that is, in and of itself, just an interesting and time-tested method to communicate with folks existing in an alternate dimension.  This seems to be neither negative or positive—merely relative.

You may think that we Asians feel it is just a normal part of our world and nothing all that crazy.  In fact, it may look as if some people are actively and happily offering up their bodies for possession.

That may be true on many occasions, but what if, during a run-of-the-mill ceremonial possession ritual, a possession happens—but it’s NOT the intended possessee who gets possessed, but rather, random bystanders who just happen to be in the vicinity of the event?  What if it is forced upon a person through no fault of their own?

What if…they are unknowing victims of particularly EVIL demons?

The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain 3

kim điền20

(continued from The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain 2)

From above, she could see the old wizard carrying her body toward a flat rock, and began an incessant muttering, barely pausing just to take a breath.  It sounded like a chant or a spell-binding, but she could understand his words completely.

He was telling her what to do.


Kim Điền.  If you want to avenge the death of your father, you must stay within the vicinity until I can tie your various souls to this realm.  Otherwise, you will move onto the next realm and you will not have the opportunity to exact your revenge within this yang realm.  Do you understand me?  Give me a sign to acknowledge that you are aware and that you understanding me.

Kim Đình tried to answer him, but something was wrong with the vibrational waves coming from her throat.  He could not hear her.  She reached out to try and touch him.  Her hand was solid-looking to her, but it passed right through him.  She tried poking at him again, but it was as if she was made of smoke.

Again she tried.  Again, she failed.

Kim Đình began to panic.  How could she indicate to him that she heard and understood???  She had to find a way to let him know!  She began yelling and screaming, but he acted as if he could not hear her.  She tried running at him, but passed right through.  She was merely a wisp in his world.  She no longer existed.

Kim Đình cried out in frustration and slapped at the old wizard.  The force knocked him off his feet and sent him tumbling backwards.

The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain 2


(Continued from The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain)

Kim Điền was taken to the court wizard, a frail old man of wizened stature, but with eyes that pierced through one’s soul.  She had only met him once before, but she knew who he was—the Royal High Wizard Cao Sơn.   He looked at Kim Điền, and without saying a word, indicated with one finger.  The soldiers pushed and shoved her into what turned out to be a large room with a tiny courtyard.

Scared and crying Kim Điền had no idea what was going to happen to her, but she could see it was not going to end well.  Within a matter of minutes, her entire retinue of handmaidens had joined her in that room, and there they stayed.

Every day, wizard Cao Sơn would have two of his men come by and take one girl from the room.  She did not know what happened to them because they never came back.  Eight days later, eight girls had disappeared.  On the ninth night, the old wizard himself came to the room.

The Demon of Thất Diệu Mountain

kim điền2

Once upon a time, (in the year 208 BC to be exact), there was a beautiful princess named Kim Điền.  One of the youngest children of Emperor Hùng Duệ Vương 18th of Vietnam, she was born to a minor concubine, but stood out amongst her siblings as a stunning beauty with high intellect.  Gifted with a multitude of talents, she was carefully schooled in all the classic arts and literature, including music and dancing. 

Kim Điền loved music.  She would dance the afternoons away in the castle courtyard, surrounded by heady scented tropical flowers, and play happy melodies on her various instruments along with a musical retinue of her maidens-in-waiting.  On special occasions, she would also engage in musical ensembles for the royal family’s enjoyment. 

Her adoring cheering crowd was small.  As the princess of an emperor, she would not have been allowed to parade herself and show off her skills to anyone other than her family and her future husband, but Kim Điền didn’t care.  She loved life, and she was happy to share her gifts with her family.

Black Sorcery and the Maiden Bùa Thiên Linh Cái


Pssst.  Come closer.  I have something to tell you.  It is scary, but it needs to be told so we can shed light on this.  You ready?

One of the most powerful, most evil black magic known to man is called the Bùa Thiên Linh Cái.  Forget using plants and animals, or even dead fetuses.  It uses living people, but once they have been used, they are dead.

They are dead because their heads have been severed.


Want to know more?  If not, you can stop reading right here.  If, however, you are even slightly curious…read on.
