Detecting Spirits With A Needle
I was told
by my granny that in old times, when people want to buy or rent a house, they
will perform a simple ritual to determine if the premise is suitable to stay.
This extremely simple ritual makes use of a sewing needle; the only condition
is that this needle must have been used in actual sewing before.
is the procedure:
the sewing needle under direct sun light at noon, i.e. from 11am-1pm. You must
repeat the process for 3 consecutive days.
a new porcelain bowl and fill it with water.
put the needle onto the surface of the water:
the needle sinks, that means the premise is suitable to be dwelled.
the needle floats, that means there are spirits dwelling the place and would
not be advisable to stay.
If one is
nosy, then one can follow the movement of the needle to track the movement of
the spirits. I have tried this simple technique and found the needle can indeed
swing to certain directions and it finally led me to one corner of a store
room. Try it and let me know your finding too. Would be a nice game when you
are staying in a hotel or some kind of holiday resort!
