夜半啼聲的緣由The Reason Behind The Midnight Cries
When we are asleep, our spirits enter into another realm. A person who is not accomplished in spiritual cultivation will not have any control once his soul enters another realm. In the dream realm, he would reenact or continue the happenings and thoughts he had during his waking hours in the day. Some with uncommon affinity would dream of their past lives, often in snippets. When he awakes, he would mumble to himself that the people and places in his dreams seem familiar, like a serendipity.
Should your young child awaken in shock and cry out in fear in the middle of the night, please do not think that this is normal. You must know that everything has its own cause and origin. You should observe with intent to find out more. When your child cries out at night, quickly turn on the lights and cradle him or her with one hand. With the other hand, gently pat the child’s chest and softly call out the child’s name at the same time. If you know how to recite the Buddha’s Name, you can recite the Buddha’s name after you call out the child’s name. Do so repeatedly until the child is emotionally stable.
If you discover a green vein appearing across the nose bridge of your child, it is almost certain that he or she is being disturbed by a spiritual being. Parents must not let their guard down. Quickly pay a visit to an accomplished master for help before any tragedy happens. Here are a couple of suggestions for your consideration:
1. Everyday before your child’s bedtime, encircle the bedroom and recite the Buddha’s name continuously until you feel at ease.
2. Take a bath and change into clean clothing. Rinse your mouth and wash your hands. Take a piece of red paper and a new calligraphy brush to write the following words: 姜太公在此坐鎮. After which, paste the paper on top of the cot or bed where the child’s head lies. I have used this method time and time again to help the children of clients, with much success. The results are really divine and extraordinary.
It is best to keep young children away from places like the beach, forested area, big trees, hospitals, weddings and funerals, etc. If your child did go to those places, you would surely realize now the reason for his midnight wails.
