One day I was walking at the local flea market. One vendor had displayed all kinds of antiques. When I was walking by, my attention got drawn to a hand-size Tibetan Buddhist statue, made out of metal. I looked at it, and I suddenly got an immense feeling of fear. At the same time there was a pull towards it. Luckily I recognized the energy, and I felt unmistakably that there was an entity attached to the statue that was not good. Actually that is an understatement, as it was very evil. This was a real antique statue that had been used in some dark practices. I was aware that in the old Tibet (before the Chinese invasion) some of the Tibetan lamas were engaged in very dark magic. Alexander David Neel had written about that in one of her books. The most disturbing was that it was still trying to pull me in while I was walking away. I walked by that stand three times, and every time I was feeling the same evil energy and fear. I had to leave the flea market to completely disconnect me from it.
That also reminds me of a exhibition I went to in Brussels. I was a heavily publicized and upscale exhibition of a large, ancient religious statues from the East, most of them in wood, and a couple in stone, that came from several museums in Europe. They had been, of course, looted several decades ago from temples in the far east. Some of them were very, very old. They were not all Buddha statues, there was a great deal of Buddhist saints, and enlightened masters of the past. These statues were life-sized. Very impressive, although all in glass cages. Walking by them was quite a trip. Some of them were lifeless, but others had strong energies, and in a couple I was feeling the entity that was still living in them. I don’t know if it was the original saint that was still connected with it, or some other entity, but these were truly living statues. There was a person inside of such a statue, and you could feel it very clearly. They were all feeling very positive and uplifting. I am sure that when they were still in their temple, they were affecting the devoted visitors profoundly, and I would not be surprised if they also served as healing centers.
