Premonition During Burial: A Gravedigger’s Perspective (下葬预兆)
Although gravediggers are not occultists, they have
accumulated many useful experiences in determining if a grave is auspicious or
otherwise. I like to chat with gravediggers to obtain firsthand accounts of
their knowledge not normally made public.
Below are some pointers from my gravedigger friends to share
·If eagles spiral on top of a grave, then the
omen is half good and half bad.
·If flies or moths present during the burial
service that causes grumbles amongst mourners, then disputes will occur amongst
the next of kin.
·If black ants craw out from a grave that means
the grave is not suitable to be used or very bad things will occur.
·If a snake is sighted around a grave during
burial service, that snake should not be harmed as it brings luck.
·If a grave is visited by a pair of birds, then
means good omen for the next of kin.
·If it suddenly drizzles during a burial service,
that is a good sign of sorrows ending and auspicious things entail.
·However, if the sky suddenly turned gloomy but
no rain accompanied with strong wind; the burial site is not auspicious.
·If colourful clouds present on top of a burial
site, then that means the grave is a good grave.
·If strong winds blow from all four directions
giving a sense of creepiness that indicates some demonic force is approaching.
·If breeze is blowing gently uphill or downhill,
the mountain god is properly visiting the grave. If this happens, one must
quickly burn some incense to thank the mountain god for its blessings.
I often make use of the above pointers during my Feng Shui
audits or while performing some rituals before and after a burial service. I would
standby to those gravediggers’ observations are quite true. If you are not Chinese and have similar
observations according to your culture, why not share with everyone? Perhaps you will have your side of the
story to tell too!
