Women’s Lives, Women’s Rituals
From the moment a person becomes aware that he or she has a special power or gift,
they start doing some special rituals, they talk and do what they think that it is right in that moment. It looks like that some unknown power leads them. Then they totally independently start to get involved in some knowledge for which no one tells them how to do it.
Sometimes they are lead by some apparitions who are able to hear and see, and are able to make some acts during the daylight or night, and at every place in the world.
There are hundreds of rituals made to provoke different changes in someone’s life (especially in the Balkan area) and a person who has that power must help every person who is looking for their help.
Working period of such people is with no limitation, they work all the time, they learn during the night, they suffer while collect strength and knowledge only to be able to use all these knowledge during the day – in practice, trying to help needed people.
The rule of “East” is used during rituals made early in the morning, when it is still dark, always in rooms or at the entrance (if needed, on the stairs). If it is made in a room, it has to be done close to the open fireplace,
and if there is no fireplace, than candles could be used.
Places in front or behind the door are seemed as a very important because it is believed that souls of the ancestors are settled there.
