Divination is an art

Despite the fact that we live in the age of digital technologies and atomic energy, a rare person haven't visited fortune-tellers or tried to read the fortune on one's own. Moreover, despite the generally accepted attitude as to a primitive anti-scientific superstition, the results of divination often turn out to be more accurate than the most detailed logical reasoning, and, moreover, are obtained instantly.

Since this phenomenon cannot be simply ignored, people try to explain it – psychologists, for example, believe that during divination practices one establishes connection with the subconscious; occultists believe that reading from the Akasha's chronicles is carried out while divination, although what the subconscious and the Akasha's chronicles are is still seem to be a big secret for themselves.

Nevertheless, for most fortunetellers this rationale is not important and unnecessary, their tool for obtaining information gives a result – and they just use it. There are a great variety of these instruments, from the simplest (dice) to huge symbolic systems (Tarot, I-Ching, runes).

There is no one best and most accurate form of divination, the soothsayer must choose the one that suits best, the one that he or she feels and understand best. Each of them can be described in a separate book, and more than one, therefore, within the framework of this article, only the most general and important recommendations will be given that do not depend on the method.

The first, most important and non-obvious rule: never read the future! The future is multivariate, fortune-telling only indicates the most possible flow of events.

Moreover, if these events are negative (illness or death, career failure, etc.), then the person to whom you read it, whether he or she wants it or not, puts into the subconscious mind a negative program, that is, he will strive against his will to this result, believing with doom that one cannot escape fate, although thousands of other outcomes are actually possible.

If the result of fortune-telling is positive (love marriage, wellness, enrichment, implementation of plans), then a person delighted with your words may become completely lazy without having done what was required to achieve this very happy result.

People are interested in their future most often because of doubts about their strengths and uncertainty about the future, which a good soothsayer should replace with opposite qualities. Naturally, a reasonable question immediately arises: how and why then you should use the divination technique?

Fortune telling is useful in those kinds of situations when a person is required to make a choice. If this choice is more or less responsible, then doubts almost inevitably arise, while the opportunity provided by fate may disappear forever. Therefore, it is better to ask questions to a fortuneteller using the "if-then" form in order to understand where this or that option of actions will lead, which one to choose and what, in fact, the person really wants and aspires.

Before diviantion, one should calm down and stop the internal dialogue, that is, interrupt the daily flow of thoughts – these actions should lead to an impartial and unemotional attitude to the questions asked. A human is a truly omnipotent being, and he is capable of embellishing or, on the contrary, worsening the answer by own fear or desire, creating big problems for the client, who, as a result, will make the wrong choice.

The following rule follows from the same considerations – use divination for yourself only in exceptional cases. There are quite a few people who are unbiased and calm about their own problems, and they, in fact, do not need diviantion; so if some question torments you a lot, better ask your friend to tell fortunes.

Due to that, it has become a common rule that the same question can be asked only once during divination. This is actually the case, but with some reservations. You can ask the oracle again in two cases – if you do not understand or cannot interpret the answer to the question; or if lots of time has passed since the moment of asking the exact same question (for example, a year).

In the first case, you just get a more detailed explanation of the question asked; in the second case, this is for sure that the entire situation could have changed a lot and, of course, the answer will certainly be different. If the answer simply does not suit you, you should probably not even think about repeating the divination unless you calm down at least.

You can perform divination in any time, but it is best to do it on a new moon or full moon – at this time, intuition is very sharpened. And, of course, you shouldn't read fortunes every single day to answer obvious and minor questions like: "What is better to cook today – noodles or pea soup?" Consult the oracle only if you really need to.

Remember that fortune-telling tools are quite demanding to use: you need to get used to them for some time, try not to put them in the wrong hands and in no case play with them (the latter concerns mainly cards, dices and dominoes). In general, divination is an art, and if you handle it creatively and sincerely, it will not take long to see the result.
