Malay Divination: Ketike
Only perfect rice groats are used in Ketike.
Ketike (Ketiko) is old divination knowledge of the Malay
This knowledge can be used to ensure a past or present
There are many ways of carrying out a ketike/ketiko; one can
use a handful of raw rice as a media. However, the question is only limited to
simple “yes” or “no” type. For an example, you can ask a question such as: “Did
so-and-so steal my mobile phone?”
You would need two persons to start this Ketike: one is the enquirer,
and the other person to carry out the actual divination.
In order to begin the query, take a handful of rice, put the
rice on the table.
Now the enquirer can start a query; after that the enquirer
and the diviner each took two grains of rice with the middle finger and so on.
If only one grain of rice is left, then the answer is “yes”; otherwise “no”.
