The Kau Cim has its origins in China and dates back to the Jin Dynasty according to the Jade Box Records. When the prediction begins all the sticks are in the storage container.
The questioner purifies the cylinder by revolving around the incense three times and shuffling the sticks six times. Kneeling in prayer the questioner asks the question of the deity either aloud or in a whisper.
You must ask a decisive question the cylinder is shaken at a slightly downward angle and a minimum of one stick will leave the container. If multiple sticks hit the floor the rite must be done again. Each stick has one number which is the answer to one question.
Once a single stick has been selected the answer is determined through the written Oracle. Then the blocks are tossed to verify the answer. When the flat side is tossed in both blocks this is a denial and some believe that when this occurs the deity is laughing at the question.
When the successful fortune is created interpretation may still be required to clarify the answer. Either a Temple priest, a volunteer or the individual can interpret the answer. Often an offering may be made to encourage a favorable answer. This type of offering is usually incenses, fresh fruit, or money.
