“O rhythm come, let nature flow,
of sacred balance ~ to and fro
I seek to know the truth, betold,
by sensing all to which unfolds,
before me ~ watching, hearing too,
the telltale signs that give us clues. “

The Metaphysics of Divination

Traditionally, metaphysics refers to the branch of philosophy that attempts to understand the fundamental nature of all reality, whether visible or invisible. It seeks a description so basic, so essentially simple, so all-inclusive that it applies to everything, whether divine or human or anything else. It attempts to tell what anything must be like in order to be at all.

As far back as the 14th century, divination was considered the art or practice that would seek to foresee or foretell future events. Discoveries of hidden knowledge, usually by the interpretation of omens or by the assistance of supernatural powers was how it was perceived. Today, the idea is not so different.

Divination is considered unusual insight or intuitive perception. As intuitive beings, we often tend to let go of or loose sight of this ability as we age.Children are extremely intuitive and utilize this ability daily. As we grow older, it seems that we tend not to trust these feelings, images or concepts from our mind’s eye. They almost seem odd, irrational or just something that is hard to believe. The Art of Scrying, or another words, tapping into the super sensory powers of your subconscious, are just other ways of “paying attention”!  Consider our featured products.

Divination Games

Divination itself can take various forms, including:

1. The direct observation of events, which have not yet occurred, such as scrying.
2. The interpretation of patterns formed by objects or on surfaces. This included the reading of tea-leaves cards and palmistry.
3. The selection of objects with meanings assigned to them by some form of random processes such as from a bag or deck of cards. This would include the runes and I-Ching. While divination is often a structured and methodical process it is never a purely rational one for it depends on the awakening of (latent) psychic abilities.

In adopting a divinatory tool, such as the runes, pendulums,crystals, color or which ever tool you choose, you are taking on both a support and a burden. They bring with them certain responsibilities. It is one thing to divinate for yourself, but the big responsibility comes when you are working for others. Learn your craft and learn it well.

Scrying is the psychological technique of unearthing or recovering information by extra-sensory, intuitive or psychic means. It is about clearing your view of the unconscious mind and translating its images, sounds and sensations into our conscious knowledge. There are many forms of scrying, from Ouija boards, dowsing rods, pendulums and aura readings to reading tea leaves, tarot cards, dream interpretations,biorhythms and handwriting analysis. I intend to introduce below some of the techniques that I have found most helpful as well as insightful.

Numerology is any study of the divine, mystical or other special relationships between a number and some coinciding observation or perceived events. It has many systems, traditions and beliefs.

Pythagoras made influential contributions to philosophy and religious teaching in the late 6th century BC. He is often revered as a great mathematician, mystic and scientist, but he is best known for the Pythagorean theorem, which bears his name. He believed that because mathematical concepts were more “practical’ (easier to regulate and classify) than physical ones, they had greater actuality.
