Souvenir mystic: 7 things that you better not bring home from travel

While Russian gourmets mourn the fact that they want to make it impossible to bring their favorite ham and cheese from abroad (exclusively for personal use, of course), we decided to look at the situation from a slightly different angle and discuss those souvenirs and memorabilia that in no case should not be dragged into your home from a foreign country.
Many travelers, trying to surprise friends and relatives, indiscriminately grab talismans, amulets, icons and other exotic things, in order to present all this as an original gift. However, not all these souvenirs are worthy of taking place among other overseas items. Our ancestors also believed that each thing can carry both positive and negative energy, which can harm not only you, but also your loved ones. Especially should be wary of the traditional trinkets from India, Japan, China, Asia and Africa, Egypt and so on, because they are not as harmless as it seems at first glance. And handmade copies, received by you as a gift, should alert you in the first place. For example, the young family decided to certainly find some unique foreign copy in order to replenish their impressive collection of tourist trophies, and in the eastern bazaar acquired an outwardly innocuous copy of a religious relic. Some time after returning home, the husband, a young healthy man, went to the hospital because of heart problems, and the child fell under a car and was in intensive care. The poor woman almost went crazy, running between hospital wards and trying to figure out why all the misfortunes suddenly happened all at once. And only having addressed the psychic, the lady received an answer to her question – misfortunes fell upon the family after a dangerous souvenir appeared in their house. The expert told her how best to get rid of the little things in order to stop the series of failures and return peace and quiet to the family.

“Seafood”
Admit it, you, too, periodically grab stones and shells from the beaches, then to look at them and remember your beautiful vacation? It is believed that the shells can not be kept at home, otherwise you will notice that the vital energy is gradually dying away and the forces are leaving you. But apathy, blues and poor health will become your constant companions. If you are still sure that this item will perfectly complement your interior, made in a marine style, then on returning home, be sure to dip the shell in salt water and leave it for a couple of hours. This will help to neutralize the effect of negative energy.

Figures, statues and antique coins
Figures of aggressive birds and animals will bring discord, conflicts and troubles into your home. For example, figurines of dogs or lions, sitting on their hind legs and with their mouths open, are peculiar magnets for attracting evil forces and unpleasantness. And such a harmless Feng Shui talisman in the form of an elephant with its trunk lowered will lead to despondency, longing and apathy. Figures in the form of a miniature skull or bones are also better left on the shelf in the store. Symbols of the other world and the Gothic definitely have no place in your house, no matter how attractive they look.

As for the old coins, experts in bioenergy warn against such purchases. Despite the fact that most people are sure that such coins will help them “lure” happiness and well-being, in fact, it may turn out that, having received this gift, a person can simply lose everything he has. Often, such coins specifically spoke of failures and sought to pass on to someone as soon as possible in order to “give” their bad luck to someone along with the money.

Masks and dolls with clearly traced faces.
A realistic image of people (the same masks, for example) have unfavorable alien energies that do not bode well for you. No wonder before the dolls were made without faces (without special details), otherwise such options, according to our ancestors, could be used during witchcraft.

Symbols of the Otherworld
Choosing a souvenir in an exotic country, immediately abandon the figurines and figurines with magical symbols. After all, acquiring some pretty idol, you can not guarantee that he does not pay trouble to your home. For example, many African idols are a copy of a very specific person who has passed away. And local shamans believe that the soul of the deceased will wander around the world until he finds refuge in his “twin.” And why do you need such a neighborhood?

For example, do not forget that the very same Egyptian pyramids, recognized as one of the seven wonders of the world, are nothing more than a tomb for the pharaohs – the burial place. Are you sure that such a thing will bring you happiness and luck? Images of jackals, anubis, pagan gods, rituals, strange hieroglyphs should not be a decoration for your home or a gift for colleagues and friends.

Try not to acquire those things whose meaning is not completely understood by you.

Few people know that clay stupas and hollow amulets (tsa-tsa) are made from the bones of departed people. And who will be in their right mind to pick up strange little things from caves, burials and other funerary structures. Just leave it where it lies and switch better to a standard magnet. And safer, and save money.

Ritual musical instruments
Tibetan hyaling – an oboe-type wind instrument – is often offered in foreign markets, it is better to bypass and in no case acquire as an original presentation. And all because these so-called ritual tools, made of human material, carry a powerful negative energy and are not meant to become a kind of decoration for the home.

Icons and other religious symbols
Any religious paraphernalia, be it at least a reproduction, but not a real icon, requires a respectful and respectful attitude. Experts do not recommend wearing icons in bags or attaching to a car dashboard. Yet these items were created for specific purposes, and not to one day become a souvenir for some particularly impressionable tourist. Church candles and incense are also not suitable as a present.

Skins (and tails) of certain animals
If suddenly at some eastern bazaar you caught a big bushy tail of a yak, then think ten times if you really want to purchase this item, with the help of which it is easy to cope with dust and annoying flies. After all, it is one thing to brush them off the crumbs from the table and quite another to inadvertently (or intentionally) start to twist them over their heads. In this case, you can incur terrible misfortunes and misfortunes. As for the skins of marmots, gophers and squirrels, they, too, should not be brought home as a souvenir. Many believe that it is in these beasts that the holy hermits reincarnate, so by acquiring something like this, you seem to become an unwitting witness to the atrocity.

Is it possible to reduce the effect of the negative?
If, nevertheless, it happened that some of these things turned out to be in your home, then try to get rid of negative energy – dip it in salted water, leave it in sea salt for a couple of days, and then leave it on the windowsill for a day (but place so that sunlight must fall on the object). Idols and figurines, with clearly traced faces, try to place them in such a way that they do not look “eye to eye” to each other and are in no way reflected in the mirror.

If, after these manipulations, troubles and hardships did not disappear from your life or an inexplicable fear began to roll over you, then, alas, you will have to get rid of the object.
