How To Stop The Rain?

Lately, heavy rain always flushes the city every day. Sometimes I find it difficult to leave the house, even using an umbrella. So the post today, I want to give some tips to ward off the rain, although most of them sound very weird and superstition. Check it out!

Teru teru bozu

Teru teru bozu (Japanese: てるてる坊主; "shiny-shiny Buddhist priest") is a little traditional hand-made doll made of white paper or cloth that Japanese farmers began hanging outside of their window by a string. This amulet is supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to stop or prevent a rainy day. Today, children make teru-teru-bōzu out of tissue paper or cotton and string and hang them from a window to wish for sunny weather, often before a school picnic day. Hanging it upside down - with its head pointing downside - acts like a prayer for rain. They are still a very common sight in Japan.

Stop the Rain Spell

This is a spell to stop rain from coming to a town right before it falls. When it starts getting dark, chant this with lots of feeling:

"Gods of power, Gods of might,
I bid you now, stop this plight,
Stop the rain, we need no more,
Let it fall, nevermore."

Put allot of feeling in stopping rain from falling from the clouds and it will not fall, it will simply move to a area away from where you are and then fall.


The reason to stop the rain is all because we have a ceremony or big celebration, so we always call the professional person who will be able to stop the rain. This person usually use the method of repeatedly praying. He will ask at least seven of the family members to do repeatedly praying to keep in touch with the Creator of rain, ask Him to stop the rain. One of them must pray for 12 hours non-stop at the night before the ceremony or celebration will be held.

Science Spiritualism

Scientifically rain can come undone in a way of dispersing rain clouds or can be accelerated by artificial rain fall. Dissolution of the rain clouds could use powdered limestone karst. Limestone when exposed to water vapor in the air will remove heat energy that will vaporize the water particles in clouds, so the clouds disappeared. With scientific reasoning, that is a charmer of rain must have a very large energy, can be a breeze that can disperse the cloud or heat energy to vaporize a very large drops in the clouds.

The charmer of rain use some prayers. The evaporation from the heat-affected sea sun will rise into the light of men and the evaporation of moisture from the leaves will be the light of women. With a prayer uttered the sacred name of God, will form the light of men and light of women. Prayer produces "energy and aura" which can be photographed with an aura camera. Feminine aura will be rain, while the masculine aura will dissolve rain clouds . Depending on what the prayer spoken, the energy that accompanies the prayer will bring or keep out the rain.


Another rain charmer who claims having supernatural science from Banten will use bowl of incense, salt, cigar, lime, areca nut and betel. He normally ask his clients throwing rice 1 handful to the roof and throw cigar, incense, flowers, and lime into the rivers. You just asked that it did not rain 1 day, 1 week, or it's up to you.

FYI, my mother who is Javanese usually only use a handful rice and knife and then throw them to the road in front of the house, while she mumbly chants the prayer. I don't know how to respond except watching her do that since that is what she believes in Java culture science.

Using genie or another creature

OMG, that is so scary. Yet, some people used them to stop the rain. One experience has ever been done is saving a football field from the pouring rain, he requires 3-5 cans of beer as a mediator. Gosh, the genie asked beer for stopping the rain? LOL.
They might be drunken genies, HAHAHAHAHAHA ...

Broom Stick

Commonly in the traditional community, there's a way to stop the rain, but doubtfully works, i.e by turning down broom stick which has been used before. At the tip of stick, embed some onions and red chilies. Then these sticks are plugged in every corner of the building to protect it from raindrops. And the broom stick could be tilted facing the sky.

Mmmm ... it is one of the weirdest ways to stop the rain, ain't it? Will rain clouds will be afraid of onions and chilies that are attached to the broom stick? So silly, LOL ...


One way to counteract the rain in traditional way is: threw underwear on the tiles (Are you insane?). According to the people stories, if the underwear was thrown into the tile, the angel who was in charge of rain will be disgusted because they saw the panties .... so it made them to go away from you and start to end up the rain. LOL ...

At last but not least, i want to give a cartoon illustration from the experience of "Benny and Mice" below. LOL
