MAGIC GLASS BALL

THIS IS A BELIEF IN INDIA.
WE HAVE A GLASS BALL THAT IS VERY POWERFUL. I HAVE SEEN
THESE THINGS. IT IS BAD TO LEARN ABOUT DEAD SOULS.
THIS GLASS BALL IS DANGEROUS IF NOT USED PROPERLY.
THERE IS DANGER OF DEATH TO THE USER WHO RECALLS
DEAD SPIRIT. THERE ARE STRONG AND WEAK MEDIUMS.
THE FUTURE RISES UP INSIDE THE BALL SOMETIMES--IT
CAN BE SEEN. VISIONS. SOMETIMES A DEAD RELATIVE
APPEARS, OR A PERSON YOU DO NOT KNOW TELLS THINGS
ABOUT THE PAST OR THE FUTURE. IF IT IS USED WELL,
THERE WILL BE GOOD FROM IT. IT DEPENDS ON THE MEDIUM.
ON THE TABLE WITH THE BALL IS PLACED A STICK OF WOOD
OR A BOWL OF COPPER.
