Divination Methods



Akashic Records

The akashic records are a universal filing system where every thought, emotion, action, and experience is recorded. The records are written on a substance called ‘akasha’ or soniferous ether. Akasha, combined with earth, water, air, and fire represent the five human senses: sight, smell, touch, hearing, and taste.

You can learn about everything that has ever happened in the history of the universe. You can hear any thought that has ever been conceived. You can feel any emotion that has ever been felt. Everything that has ever existed is at your finger tips.

Think of the akashic records as a super computer that has existed for millions of years, or since the creation of the universe. Everything that has ever occurred has been recorded. Every thought and emotion of every person in the universe is contained in the akashic records.

Haruspicy or Ooscopy

“Haruspicy” is a method of divination that was practiced by the ancient Etruscans, who had an advanced civilization in Italy before the Roman Empire. In ancient times the haruspex (diviner) interpreted the divine will by inspecting the entrails of a sacrificial animal. Fortunately there is a form of haruspicy, called “ooscopy”, that is quite compatible with the modern world. Ooscopy substitutes an egg for the sacrificial animal and inspection of the opened egg for examination of the entrails. This works just as well as the ancient procedure, and perhaps better.

Taromancy or Tarot

– a form of cartomancy using a deck of Tarot cards, comprising the 21 trump cards plus the Fool card which make up the Major Arcana cards, and the fifty-six pip cards and four face cards which make up the Minor Arcana, the divinatory meanings of the cards derived mostly from the Kabbalah of Jewish mysticism and from medieval Alchemy.

Tarot is not suitable for looking lost objects/persons or hardly answers yes or no (it’s possible but it’s tricky and tarot is always adding more then just simple yes/no and thus could be unclear) but pendulum does, so it’s a great complementary technique.

Another method that adds to your divination abilities is to learn some extrasensory or mediumistic ability like seeing aura, object reading, communication with ghost, spiritual entities, scrying in black mirror, crystal ball, bowl of water, etc.
