We must chew laurel leaves while we are submerged in profound meditation for long hours. This is how we can see the things that will occur in the future. Unquestionably, it is known that dried laurel has the magical virtue of prognosticating for whoever is questioning it whether something that is waited for will be prosperous or unpleasant.
If one laurel branch tossed on to flames is burned without producing the least bit of noise, then the outcome will be terrible.
On the contrary, if the branch of dried laurel is burned with great noise, intensely crackling and sparking, then it is announcing a total success.
