Bali, Mystical and Darkly Magic

Séance Held to Communicate with one of the Balinese Victims of the Shoot Down of MH17


Bali – the Island and its people - are deeply spiritual.

News carried by NusaBali underlines this deep spirituality with news precipitated by the tragic loss of MH17, shot down from the skies over the Ukraine.

On board that flight was a 24-year-old Balinese man, I Wayan Sujana, who was on his way back to Bali after attending the wedding of friends in Belgium when his life was tragically cut short. A self-made man coming from the most humble of economic circumstances in North Bali, Sujana was the backbone and future hope of his family distinguishing himself as a scholar and entrepreneur at an early age.

In accordance with Balinese belief that the souls of the dead are in danger of roaming aimlessly in another dimension unless prescribed prayers and rituals are performed that will guide the dead and leading them to the final disposition of their remains in a manner that will guarantee a safe and continuing journey of the soul.

Sujana’s family have had no news from the war zone where the plane fell or from Malaysian Airline regarding their brother and son’s body, clarifying if Wayan’s body has been found and identified.

In an atmosphere of urgency, ceremonies were conducted in the man’s home village of Pejarakan on Saturday, July 19 - little more than one day after the plane fell. Conducted by Balinese priests adept at communicating with the spirit world, a Nebusin ceremony was help to help guide the young man’s soul and body back to his home and family temple.

Held on Saturday morning, the spiritualist spoke to Wayan who spoke through medium saying in Balinese “I’m confused. Confused. Where am I? It’s so hot here.”

Wayan’s father, I Ketut Ginastra, prays that his son’s remains, regardless of their state, are quickly returned to Bali to permit prayers and a cremation seen as essential to permit Wayan’s restful repose and the continuing journey of his soul.

Malaysian authorities have asked the family to provide DNA evidence to aid in the identification of Wayan’s remains and also asked the family to prepare for a flight to Kuala Lumpur that will serve as the receptive center for human remains once they are made available by Ukrainian officials.

The family learned of their son’s death in the early hours of Friday, July 18th when a neighbor and friend of Wayan awoke the family to share the tragic news regarding the crash being broadcast by the international media.
