Okay...I am asking because I plan to get the 'big boy' Sin-eater at some point. Does north-south mean get a compass and find actual north and south or does it just mean side to side and up and down, which makes more sense? Also, how DO I get at all that sin from past lives. (yes, I was NAUGHTY NAUGHTY and I got CAUGHTY!)
North being your head and South being your toes. If you have any sin attached to you through past life acts that is actively against you now the Sin-Eater will remove those residual impacts.
