Divination: What It Is and Why It's Important

If you've been following me for a while and apart of my communities, you'll know that I am always emphasizing the importance of divination as the first step in your magical rituals. In this blogpost, I'll break down what it is, why it's so darn important, and the forms it can take.

What Exactly Is Divination?

Alright, so let's keep it real simple. Divination is like your cosmic hotline to the universe. It's how we try to figure out what's coming our way or what's lurking beneath the surface by tapping into some supernatural vibes. It's like having a spiritual GPS to navigate life's twists and turns.

Why Should You Care About Divination?

Now, you might be wondering, "Why should I bother with this divination thing?" Well, friend, there are some pretty good reasons:

1. Empowerment: Learning divination is like gaining superpowers for your spiritual journey. It's all about making sure you're the one steering the ship in your spiritual quest, so no one can take advantage of you.

2. Spiritual Connection: Divination is like having a heart-to-heart with the universe. It helps you chat with spirit guides, your ancestors, and all those cosmic forces. It's like having a direct line to the wisest mentors in the universe.

3. Energy GPS: Life is all about energy, right? Well, divination helps you understand and track that energy. It's your trusty compass that tells you when you need to cleanse, protect, or do some other mystical stuff.


What Are Some Forms of Divination?

Now, let's talk about the cool ways you can dive into divination. There's something for everyone:

1. Tarot: Tarot cards are a popular tool for divination, consisting of a deck of 78 cards with intricate symbolism that offers insights into past, present, and future events.

2. Astrology: Astrology involves analyzing the positions and movements of celestial bodies to gain insights into an individual's personality, life events, and destiny.

3. Cartomancy: This includes using regular playing cards or other card decks for divination purposes, similar to tarot but with different interpretations often rooted in numerology and the four elements.

4. Scrying: Scrying involves gazing into a reflective surface, like a crystal ball or a mirror, to receive visions, symbols, or messages from the spiritual realm.

5. Bone Throwing: Bone throwing, also known as osteomancy, uses bones, shells, or other small objects tossed onto a surface to interpret patterns and receive guidance.

6. Obi and Cowrie Shells: These are traditional divination tools used in African and African Diaspora spiritual practices, where the positioning and arrangement of shells provide insights.

7. Numerology: Numerology involves analyzing numbers and their significance in a person's life, helping to reveal patterns and influences.

8. Dreams, Visions, and Mediumship: While not always considered traditional divination, dreams, visions, and mediumship are indeed forms of divination, as they involve connecting with the spirit world and gaining insight through intuition. I recommend confirming with a second form of divination (a physical tool) when you first get started.

Whether you're a seasoned mystic or just getting started, divination is your trusty companion on this spiritual journey. While it may initially seem overwhelming, the first step is to simply choose one, master it, and build as you continue your journey. It's like having a friendly guide to help you uncover the mysteries of life, connect with the cosmos, and take charge of your destiny.
