I wanted to start a thread where we could share our ideas, and stories about divination.
1. Which form of divination do you use?
(Tarot cards, runes, pendulum, tea leaves, crystal mirrors, I Ching, etc.)
3. Do you have a story to tell of an extraordinary experience you once had whilst performing divination?
I will go first.
Besides being clairaudient, and clairvoyant, I have found that Tarot cards and/or a pendulum (mine has an amethyst crystal) help me a lot when trying
to find answers for someone. I don’t necessarily ‘need’ them but they do help me a lot, and I have grown very accustomed to using them the last
About 16 years ago, I walked into an esoteric shop to buy my first deck of Tarot cards. (I had been practicing using my grandmother’s in the past,
but she urged me to get my own, because they would work better for me.) I told the clerk which type of Tarot I was looking for (Rider Waite) and she
started looking for it on the shelf behind her, when a package of a deck of cards fell onto the floor.
She picked it up, and it was a deck of Rider Waite Tarot cards. She said the packaging was kind of dusty, so she would get me a newer looking one, but
I told her that this was the deck I wanted. I wanted it, because I knew it had chosen me, it basically threw itself nearly at me.
My late grandmother always told me to look for the signs and I was absolutely sure this was one. I have been using this deck of cards ever since, and
it has never failed me.
When I'm not using the Rider Waite, I use the Gilded Tarot cards or a pendulum, when I just need a quick 'yes/no' answer.
I use the Rider Waite Tarot cards about 70% of the time, not because I think they are better or anything like that, but because it was my first choice
of Tarot card deck, and I feel a connection to it. Also the illustrations on them are very clear, and easy to interpret, and I advise this type of
Tarot card deck to people who are more old fashioned, or people who are just starting to use this type of divination.
