Q017: Master Lu, when I was burning Little Houses (Hsiao Fang Tzu), I suddenly had an extra breath of air in my mouth. What does this mean? How should I exhale it out?


  • If you have an extra breath of air in your mouth while you burn Little Houses, it is very likely to be related to foreign spirits. You should exhale this breath of air out, and at the same time thank Guan Yin Bodhisattva in your mind.
  • Foreign spirits enter and exit our body through several locations, including the neck, back of the head, eyes, mouth and forehead.
  • When you exhale, you should do it slowly and gently. You do not need to have your mouth wide open, and you can let the extra breath of air exit out of your system through the spaces between your teeth.
