Two shamans have allegedly captured several spirits in a house in Malaysia it has been reported.
The incident revolved around a 22-year old woman who was said to keep mysteriously vanishing as a result of the spiritual intruders, often turning up in strange places around her village with no conventional explanation.
It looked like a scene from the 1982 horror movie Poltergeist when two bomoh allegedly captured nine djinns at the home of a woman yesterday. The girl became the talk of her village when she allegedly vanished on several occasions, only to be found in odd places like inside a cement mixer and a cemetery.

Oh its more fun than that.... the Djinns, are not evil spirits as per se. I have heard that they were a rebel alien race that once occupied this planet. They were then hunted down and into extinction.... look at the greek mythologies of various different monsters as well as other folklore. Although the Djinn were wiped out, their spirits still linger here on this planet. And is some cases have incredible powers.... a Jeanni is a type of Djinn that can grant wishes for example. And as seen here it is possible to trap them inside of bottles, lamps, etc..... They also attribute Djinns to Faries, ... [More]

Actually Jinn are a very real part of Islam. Let me enlighten those who don't know what they are: The Holy Qur’aan reveals that Jinn are created from fire whereas the human beings are created from clay. Although they are invisible to human eyes, the jinn can see us. Like human beings they are also entrusted with responsibilities (careers, family life, etc.). They too will be rewarded for their righteousness and will receive punishment for their wickedness. In the Quraan it states: “And among us ( the Jinns ) there are the righteous folk and among us there are far from that; we are sects having... [More]

How do you kill, that which has no life, or isnt real? Thats why theyre not. Okay. I understand your post. Having said that, I have seen something that I believe are the Jinn - which/who are called it, shadow people by everyone else and Jinn by Islam. I have seen them, very clearly, no doubt about it they have visited me. This is what has been written in the Koran: God made man from clay and the Jinn from smokeless fire. And, when I had my experience, I considered sucking one of them up in my Dyson... but I did not, because I was aware enough to know that whatever it was, it may have a family,... [More]

Bloody Djinns, kidnapping young girls and putting them in cement mixers. What is the world coming to? In my day Djinns used to work for a living or be in the army, now they just hang around on street corners drinking cider and putting sleeping girls up high trees.

The short, simple summary of this article: "Sleepwalking person cured by placebo effect." Thank you, I didn't feel like reading it.
