For those that no nothing about Thailand or Thai people, it is completely DIFFERENT THAN TAIWAN and TAIWANESE.
Thailand just celebrated Songkran from April 13 to April 15.
It's a Thai New Years Festival where everyone in Thailand takes to the streets to pour and spray water all over each other! I figured it was type of cleansing ritual on a national scale (Imagine playing Call of Duty online, except it's real life - with water guns, buckets, and truckbeds full of water), but as we all know, there is sometimes more sinister energy behind these types of rituals. I just haven't figured it out yet lol.
That being said, Thailand is a very spiritually and traditionally rooted country...which brings me to my next topic... RAISING ABORTED FETUS SPIRITS.
It wasn't until I literally was naming this article that I realized it's F*CKING Necromancy.
Before I get to the juicy parts of the story, I'm going to break it down for the others that want to learn more about it (like me). But stick with me, I PROMISE YOU - it gets GOOD and you will see why someone would want this.
This well preserved baby fetus magic thingy majiggy is called Khuman Tong, or as Wiki states it: Kuman Thong.
This Thai tradition of raising an aborted baby fetus is not only an HONOR, but a serious matter. Recently it's become more popular for Thai people to use dolls, ritually injected with a spirit by a Monk.
JUST so it's clear, the BABY IS DEAD. IT's dried out, preserved (usually with lacquer or paint), and then gold is placed upon the corpse (shoutout to all my occultists who know what's going on here).
Usually, the baby comes from a parent that had an abortion. In other and less common cases, the baby is a miscarriage and those are very interesting cases.
Usually how the baby died is a factor in it's personality. Miscarriage babies sometimes have a melancholy energy surrounding them, deeply affected at their missed opportunity. While the purposely aborted ones are trouble makers and JUST SO full of life.
There are also unmarked baby graves in certain areas of Thailand that people will go into - usually to give them a proper cremation, other times for preservation into Khuman Tong.
OH - and I keep forgetting to mention... IT'S A COMMON AND WELL KNOWN PRACTICE.
So yes, anybody from Thailand will know exactly what you are talking about, the newer generations in U.S. (or away from the motherland) might not....I mean, who's parents are going to tell them about that. Mine didn't! I learned from the Monks!!
The only condition with being HONORED with such a gift (dead baby fetus), is that a Monk has to CHOOSE YOU. Just like a real life adoption service, the Monks want to find the PERFECT caretaker for this PURE spirit.
The spirit of an unborn child is SO PURE, my fellow Rothschildrens (my plural version for them) and the Vatican city Palpatine - ahem POPE - would know.
The purity is one of the reasons why the Monks want to find the perfect home for them, the other is obviously that spirits should be handled with the utmost respect, because just like humans, spirits can be taken advantage of.... and the Monks raise the spirits because they recognize that they are stuck or trapped spirits who just need a home. Can't say the same about the people who wish to have one.
After all, they're alive too and forbid anybody ever treated them otherwise.
The reason for the Monk's deliberate search for perfect caretakers, will come later into play with my stories about Khuman Tong.
I've only known 1 person in my life that had one and another who's had a direct story. One person was an old teacher - for the sake of this article I will refer to him as Doctor.
Out of 30 people, Doctor was the one chosen for the Khuman Thong. Of which, was a 3 week process that I have no idea about. Upon receiving it, there is a series of rites that must be done.
One of the first, is blessing the caretaker and introducing the spirit to the caretaker. Making sure that the spirit will GO WITH him. If it doesn't want to, then the process starts again with someone else. The Monks also have to say their goodbyes to the Kuman Thong once they find a caretaker.
Now, the spirit may have already communicated with the Monk, WHO it wants to take care of them, but the Monk also filters the choices because sometimes what a spirit wants is still not the best.
Assuming that the house has already been blessed, it's up to the caretaker to do the rest of the job. Most Thai people know what to do, but some will still need a Monk at this point.
It is believed in Thai culture that every house has it's own guardian spirits. When the caretaker arrives at his/her home, they have to ask the guardian spirits of their home to allow the Khuman Tong spirit to freely travel inside and out of the property.
This ritual involves the usual: giving offerings, incense, and intuition. I don't know how it's like for guardian house spirits to reject a pure unborn soul, but I can assure you - it's extremely rare.
If the guardians were to say "NO" It would manifest quickly, abruptly, and probably make you sh*t your pants.
Once able to enter the house with the Khuman Tong, the caretaker offers food to it like it's a living child, talks to it, and basically would have an altar already prepared for it. You can ask it what it's name is or you can name the spirit yourself if it doesn't already have one.
It's tradition to let the Khuman Tong EAT every time before you and your family have a meal.
From what I hear, most people seat the Khuman Tong at the dinner table with it's food. Then, when it's time for the humans to eat, they either eat at the table with the Khuman Tong, or may put it back on it's altar/shrine.
Now for the part everyone's been waiting for - BECAUSE IT NEVER JUST ENDS WITH AN INVISIBLE FORCE PROTECTING YOU.
The Doctor told me within 3 days, he already started seeing the Khuman Tong's spirit in his dreams. Additionally, it would also play with him while he slept.
The Khuman Tong had a name already and introduced himself to the Doctor in a dream. The Khuman Tong was very shy at first but EXTREMELY playful. He would play with the Doctor's feet every night, he would tug the sheets, hear laughter, hear talking, poking and tugging of his clothes, etc.
At first the Doctor was f*cking startled, rattled to the bones with the force of this spirit - however, as time went on he would literally say "I'm trying to sleep, STOP MESSING AROUND," and as a good child would, the Khuman Tong listened.
As years passed the Doctor saw the child's spirit GROW older. The spirit was actually growing up. The Doctor said he could clearly see and remember the growth by how the spirit's appearance began to change in his dreams over the years.
Sadly, the Doctor's relationship with the Khuman Tong had to come to an end when he came here to America. He took the baby back to the Temple, where he had to forfeit it back to the Monks; unable to take care of it any longer due to travels and future plans.
I figured something like this would enrage a child, so of course - there are rituals, offerings, I love yous, and goodbyes for the separation.
I was 7 years old listening to the Doctor tell me about it and thinking "This guy is f*cking sh*tting me," and then kept asking about it anyways.
Why the Monks CHOOSE the caretakers is another story I'm writing about below.
Maybe about a year ago, I started talking to the Chinese foreign exchange student who we will call Bo. Bo and I have a language barrier and you will see it as this story goes on.
One day, HE actually showed ME, a video of a drink offering made to a Khuman Tong, where you can see the drink literally get sucked up the straw while nobody is THERE.
(would link you to the video but the title was in Chinese and I don't know Chinese. If I find the video later I'll post it to Twitter and update this blog)
As we began talking about the Khuman Tong, he told me that his friend from China had went to a "bad" Monk, to ask for a Khuman Tong.
Why the hell would he do that?
DUH DABBIE!! His friend NEEDED PROTECTION. His friend is a drug dealer - a big one. And in China, you get the death sentence or something absolutely horrid.
I must admit when I figured this out, I was thinking that Asian cultures go above and beyond. In Hispanic gang culture, it's common to worship the deity Santa Muerte for criminals - BUT it seems like sh*t still hits the fan at life crumbling rates because deities can become wrathful.
Instead, get an aborted baby fetus straight from Thailand (JUST KIDDING).
I began to interrogate Bo (my Scorpio BS). How did your friend get one, you have to be chosen? Did he see its spirit? Did he dream of it? How does it protect him? Did he get it in Thailand?
So what had happened is:
His friend intentionally went to Thailand to visit an "evil" monk (as Bo put it). His friend traveled from CHINA to THAILAND just for the Khuman Tong. From my understanding of Thai culture, he meant that he went to a Witch Doctor. Most Witch Doctors there are former Monks. They also don't care who gets a Khuman Tong, or why you want one.
I assume that the Khuman Tongs acquired from most Witch Doctors, are from mass unmarked baby graves. The Witch Doctor gave him one and did a basic ritual, introducing the two to work with one another.
Bo's friend was able to see the spirit within 3 days as well. If I'm correct, he saw it in his dreams the first night (which is common). The spirit usually shows up in the dreams of the caretaker the first night to give a formal introduction, some are more shy.
Bo's friend still has the Khuman Tong. It's done him very well. Say for instance, I stole some money from his friend, the Khuman Tong would come terrorize me, knock me upside the head, or manipulate strings in my life to lead to paying back Bo's friend. It could possibly even kill me if his friend wanted that.
The Khuman Tong also warns the caretaker of any troubles headed their way. Bo's friend says that his Khuman Tong keeps him protected from cops and the law.
ADDITIONALLY, Baby Khuman Tong also brings in the MONEY and Good Fortune!
The Khuman Tong will only protect you as long as you take care of it, love it as your own, and give it attention. It is a little more tedious than usual but it's the price you pay. If it's left untended to, you will receive WRATH. The levels of wrath depend on the spirit and how good of a ghost baby parent you can be. Teach it good morals, strong family values, etc.
Bo told me that personally he's seen drink offerings get sucked up through straws before, and has also seen his friend's Khuman Tong, but thats about it.
If you seriously get one, go to the nearest Thai temple and seriously ask them what to do and how to raise it. Chances are, the Monk will definitively deem you unworthy - but he can't take it away from you - thus WILL HAVE NO CHOICE but to tell you what to do. Also, now you will have a place to give up the Khuman Tong if one day you come to terms with the fact that you can't take care of it anymore (Shame on you if you do).
Also, it makes it damn f*cking apparent about what happens with abortions. Luckily all of these fetuses spend time with the monks at the temple first and who seem to dispel any sadness or anger they have over their death, abandonment, abortion, miscarriage etc.
Some people dedicate their lives to raising multiple, taking care of the dead fetus spirit because nobody else will.
One of my favorite stores in the LA area, just acquired one and put it on a shelf next to a bunch of other dead animals and insects.
I know that baby isn't being tended to with a price tag slapped on him and many times I stare at him through the window and just wish him well. Every story I've ever heard of these spirits have been nothing but sweet, playful, and just downright cute.
It really surprised me seeing the Khuman Tong on the shelf because nobody here would know how to get rid of one, nonetheless raise it. People in Thailand don't even know how to banish or get rid of them. They just take them back to the temple, and I know most people have no clue where the closest temple is.
If you have a Khuman Tong story I'd love to hear about it so reach out
