Casting Instructions for 'Deaths Doors'
Write the dying person’s name on the piece of paper. Place the paper with the person’s name on it, the photograph, the leaves, the coins, a few drops of water and a pinch of salt in the jar and then put the lid on the jar, securing it tightly. Hold the jar with both hands and repeat the following words aloud:
"O hear me, keeper of the four winds. I, your humble servant of the earth. Seeker of the key, I entreat you! This spirit that I hold and guard is ready for its journey and wishes safekeeping on its way. I send it forth and entrust it to your hands to bring it home as safely, just as you sent it forth"
Bury the jar in the ground.
