Chi Chi Sticks practice (Kau Cim, Lottery Poetry or the Oracle of Guan Yin) is a Chinese divination method known as one of the oldest styles of fortune telling in the world.
The practice represents a method of random selection. The answer seeker kneels, often in prayer, in a temple, or before an altar. Holding the tube between palms and asking a question to the oracle/universe/whatever-they-believe-in. In many cases, an offering is made prior to the asking of the question in order to carry good favor from the higher powers. These offerings typically consist of incenses, fruits, cakes, and/or monetary donations.
The shaking of the tube, which is usually tipped slightly downward, results in at least one stick falling to the floor. If multiple sticks drop, those fortunes do not count and the tube must be shaken again. The number on each stick corresponds to a particular fortune.
OHM Chi Chi Sticks charm is our interpretation of this ancient tradition. By shaking the charm, you will always receive your daily mantra. Did you shake the charm? What kind of prediction did you get? What is written on YOUR Chi Chi Sticks …charm?
It is fun and easy! Here is how:
1. Make a wish or ask a question. Keep it in your mind’s eye.
2. Hold the charm upside down to keep the sticks inside.
3. Ready? Go! Let the charm drop and shake it in a rattling manner. Only one stick should fall out.
4. Once your stick falls out – you are ready to read your fortune.
These are custom orders and most retailers should have their preorders up on their website in the next few hours. I will update this section as needed to make sure information is accurate.
Over all, I love the idea of a larger custom engraved Chi Chi Stick! I have the smaller version and love it. I look forward to seeing this bead in use! What are your thoughts and will this be a bead you will want to add to your collection? What are some of the mantras that you would like engraved on the sticks?
