* When someone is deathly ill keep all the animals out of the house so the person's spirit will not possess him.
* Before burial, place pennies on the eyes of the dead, tie their toes together so they cannot walk, and put open scissors - forming a cross -on their chest.
* Never cry at funerals. Tears falling on the dead make it more difficult for the spirit to disengage and leave this world.
* After burial, plant thorn bushes around both the grave and your home. The spirit will get tangled in them, and be unable to pass back into the house.
* If the clothing of the dead contains any knots this will keep the spirit from moving on. Untie these before burial.
* Open all the doors and windows in the area where the person died so the spirit can have quick passage.
