Not all stories have happy endings…
In October 2019, a woman about 30 years old, who was accompanied by her mother and boyfriend, came to Ghostbuster to see Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin for fortune-telling. As expected, Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin read her fortune. When he recounted the woman’s fortune between ages 25 to 30, Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin said to the woman, “Your fortune has been very low in recent years. It is best not to go to Baishi or Yin Temple. You need to be very careful or you will accumulate evil Yin and it will affect your affairs including your health and wealth. You need to be very careful.” As soon as Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin finished speaking, the woman started suddenly trembling at the corners of her mouth. Suddenly a voice said, “Ha! What?!” With a loud laugh, a male voice said to Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin, “Hahaha, didn’t you see me? I’ve already possessed her!” When Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin heard this, he used his sight of the heavens ability and saw a male ghost in his 40s standing behind the woman. The ghost was wearing clothes from the 1940s and was bleeding from the head as if he had just been in a traffic accident.
Seeing this phenomenon, Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin asked the ghost, “Who are you?! How dare you be so bold as to possess her body. If you don’t leave quickly, I’ll have no mercy.” The woman’s face laughed as the male ghost laughed loudly: “Haha! Come on, I’m not afraid! I’ll continue to possess her and see what you can do to me with your ability.” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin then slowly stood up from the chair, ready to exorcise the evil spirits from the woman. Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin first motioned her mother and boyfriend to help the woman to sit down on the chair in front of the altar, then he motioned to his assistant to hand over the holy water. Then he sprayed the holy water on the woman and said, “Leave!” The male ghost said: “It hurts! It’s like a fire!” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin said: “Then why don’t you leave?!” The ghost said: “It hurts, but I won’t leave! What can you do to me?!” Chew Hon Chin The Grandmaster said, “Aren’t you going to leave? Then look at the power of my magic dust!” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin then took the magic dust and scattered it onto the woman’s body. The ghost said: “Don’t hit me, it hurts. If you hit me again, I’ll change my face.” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin said: “If you have the ability, go ahead. Let’s see how you change your face.” The male ghost continued: ” It hurts! It hurts! Stop beating! Look at what I’m holding.”
The woman raised her hands, but her hands appeared empty to everyone except Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin’s. Grandmaster Chew saw the male ghost holding a black command flag in one hand and a token with cyan gold characters in the other. The male ghost went on to say: “I have the order of the King of Hell and the Taoist Black Command Flag given by the King of Hell to chase the soul of this woman and collect a debt. Don’t stop me or you’ll have to face the King of Hell and bear the consequences of the King of Hell’s black command flag.” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin said: “The Ghostbuster is here— it’s your choice! What are your origins? Does this woman have anything to do with you? Why not tell me? Be careful… If you tell me any half-truths, the Six Gods and Six Generals will torture your soul under the nine ghosts so that your soul will never be at peace!” The male ghost continued: “Don’t hit me! Don’t hit me! The kid’s name is Chen Yi Han— born in Taiwan, home in Pingxi, date of birth March 29, 1902. Yin Shi died in a car accident in Taiwan on the night of May 10, 1943. I have been waiting for this woman for a long time. I died tragically, and I must pay her debt in blood. I left my hometown to work in her village. How could I know that she mistook me for a thief and drove me out of the construction site. As a result, I died in an accident. It was all her fault, and he was wronged. I didn’t steal anything. If she hadn’t kicked me out, I wouldn’t have died tragically! It’s all her fault. After I died, I went to the King of Hell to set things right. I finally waited for her to be reincarnated. There, I told you everything! You better not stop me!” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin said, “Although you have received the black command flag of the King of Hell, you’ve come before the Ghostbuster God, so don’t bother! Let her go! What do you want from us? We can burn paper money, gold, or silver treasures.” The male ghost said, “You want me to leave after burning a little paper money? It’s too cheap for her! I spent 76 years in the underworld city of death, and I finally got want I want.
The King of Hell gave me the Taoist Black Command Flag and the order to search for her reincarnation in order to take revenge, so you can’t possibly think I’ll stop without a fight.” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin saw that the ghost had the Taoist Black Command Flag and the order from the King of Hell and knew that if he forcibly expelled the ghost, he would also be punished. If the issue turned into a conflict with the underworld’s King of Hell, it could become a major problem for him—this was definitely not easy to handle. The only way to get rid of this male ghost is to reach an agreement with the ghost. If Grandmaster is forced to solve the issue with martial arts, he could end up bearing karma for this woman. He then said to the ghost: “It’s impossible for you to kill her— you can only give up if you say what you want.” The ghost replied: “It’s okay not to take her life. I know you have the decree of the Ghostbuster, so as long as you declare that the Ghostbuster has enshrined me as an immortal god… Otherwise, she will be… hey! Hey! Hey!” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin replied: “You have no merit, and you have not cultivated the Tao, nor have you any good merits. If I treat you as a god, I’m afraid you won’t be able to bear it.”
The ghost said, “Then I will use this woman’s body as a vassel to help others and accumulate merit for myself.” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin said, “This can’t be done—she is under 30 years old. She is too young she hasn’t even married or started a family yet, so it’s not right for you to use her body like this.” The ghost said, “I can’t do this! I can’t do that either! Then I’ll take her back to the underworld to be a wife!” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin replied, “You’re a fool! I know you have a wife, so be careful or I’ll bring her here to deal with you.” The ghost said quickly, “No! No! That stinky woman is very fierce! Please! I beg you not to ask her to come, no matter what. Tell me if there is any other way to solve this problem.” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin thought for a moment and then said, “Well, I think it is very pitiful for you to die in vain. I will help you choose an auspicious day when we can send your soul to Kunlun Mountain. You will practice Taoism for 36 years. After 36 years, after your practice is complete, you can go down the mountain and possess the woman’s body again then. By then, she will be in her 50s and married, so there will be no worries. This will be the best for everyone. But you can’t bother her for 36 years— will that be okay? “The ghost said, “Okay, okay, I’ll do as you said, don’t take back your word or I’ll make her suffer.” “Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin replied: “Okay, as long as the woman agrees, it’s a done deal, but you can’t disturb her for 36 years— otherwise the Ghostbuster will never let you go, no matter where you go, the Six Gods and Six Generals will surely capture you and punish you using the five thunders and you will be obliviated. You will leave first, and after I have a good talk with this woman, I will choose an auspicious day and invite you to come to the Ghostbuster and I will send you off to Kunlun Mountain for cultivation.” The ghost snorted, “Okay!” It’s settled. Then I will go first! After the ghost left, the woman suddenly said to Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin with a perplexed look, “Is he gone? What did you guys just talk about?” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin then explained to her the ins and outs of the whole thing, and asked her if she would like to become a spirit medium in 36 years in order to save the world. After thinking for a moment, she said, “Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin, I want to go home and think about it.” Can I get back to you later?” Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin saw the reluctance on her face and didn’t say anything more, and replied, “Then go back and think about it and then let me know when you have an answer. “
But day by day went by and the woman did not reply, nor did she return to the store. Grandmaster Chew Hon Chin said that since she didn’t come back, there would be no way to help her and he can only hope that this woman has found a solution to the ghost and can live a happy and stable life. Let everything take its course.
