Kajsa and Paul discuss Ku, a dangerous form of Chinese black magic.
Our Healers are experienced in dealing with Ku, so if you have any Ku problems, please contact us.
One sign of Chinese black magic is seeing insects, beetles, centipedes or scorpions, either physically or in dreams or visions. Ku or Gu is the Chinese word for black magic, and the method is simple: put a number of different venomous creatures such as snakes, scorpions, etc in a sealed box, and the one creature still alive after killing the others embodies the toxins of them all. The magic resulting from this is used to control sexual relationships, create wealth, or revenge, or even kill people. The animal can appear as a snake, insect, dog, pig, caterpillar or frog. Or you may see a gold silk-worm.
Types of Chinese Black Magic
What is fascinating is that the root word Ku covers pretty much all types of Chinese black magic:
- Poisoning from an abdominal wug [腹內中蟲食之毒]
- In ancient books, a type of artificially cultured poisonous wug [古籍中一種人工培養的毒蟲]
- Ghost of a person [convicted of gu-magic] whose severed head was impaled on a stake [臬磔死之鬼]
- Evil heat and noxious qi that harms humans [傷害人的熱毒惡氣]
- Wug pest that eats grain. [蛀蟲]
- Sorcery that harms humans [害人的邪術]
- Seduce; tempt; confuse; mislead [蠱惑, 誘惑, 迷惑]
- Affair; assignment [事]
- One of the 64 hexagrams. It is formed from [the trigrams] Gen 艮 [☶ Mountain]) over Xun 巽 [☴ Wind) [六十四卦之一. 卦形为…艮上巽下]
This list from Wikipedia should really be inverted, for the hexagram of Mountain over Wind, that is the crushing of Air under Earth, a suffocation. Mountains are stationary, immovable, while the Wind keeps on moving – so one experience is that of repeated blocks in all areas experienced by the victim. The Wilhelm translation for this hexagram says:
The Chinese character ku represents a bowl in whose contents worms are breeding. This means decay. It has come about because the gentle indifference in the lower trigram has come together with the rigid inertia of the upper, and the result is stagnation. Since this implies guilt, the conditions embody a demand for removal of the cause. Hence the meaning of the hexagram is not simply “what has been spoiled” but “work on what has been spoiled.”
The affinity with animals in ku Chinese black magic points to shamanic techniques relating to the use of the eight trigrams, walking the path in a circle.
