Auto-manzia



An unusual form of divination practiced by the Italian psychic Maria Rosa Donati-Evstigneeff. The practice requires ten straight pins and three bent pins. They are shaken in cupped hands and then dropped on a surface dusted with powder. The procedure seemed to involved some sort of psychic faculty which is related to divinatory forms such as geomancy and reading tea leaves. A.G.H.
