Psychometry is a method of divination in which the psychic or medium reads the energy vibration of objects and divining from it visions or impressions associated with the object. These impressions are individual to the psychometrist or clairtangent psychic, who may either see, feel, hear, or taste according to their own psychic gift.
Often when a psychic is consulted in a missing person’s case a piece of clothing or personal belonging of the person is presented to them. This often proves helpful in the investigation. Jewelry, especially those made of conducting metals like gold, silver or copper, are the easiest for the psychometrist to read, because it has been close to the wearer.
I would prefer to believe that things possess the power of recall, of recollection. That things are memoirs of the existences that once were theirs, if only we knew how to read them ~ Norman Lock
Psychometry is less popular these days than it was in the early 20th Century. Psychometry is sometimes looked upon with suspicion because of its association with the séance circuits of those days. It is, however, a bona fide divination method that is thousands of years old.
In ancient Egypt the priests and priestesses were schooled in the magical arts, which included many types of divination methods. They were encouraged to absorb the energy of an object, and to let it speak to them. Inanimate objects, such as statues and amulets, were often infused with certain energies and it would be up to the priest or priestess to discover if they were harmful.
Psychometry is a fairly simple method of divination which challenges a person to really get in touch with their guides or super-consciousness. To begin, as in all divination methods, the mind should be clear and unfettered by the environment and surrounding noises. Hold the object in your hands and begin to clear your mind of all the mental ‘junk’ that inhabits it on a daily basis. Impressions or wisps of visions may rush at you all at once. Take note of them and do not second guess what you see or feel. Second guessing your impressions will almost certainly leave you with the wrong information. The rule of thumb in all forms of divination is: if you see it say it! Trust what you receive, no matter how strange it may seem.
Sometimes the impressions flow rapidly. Other times, they come slowly. Do not worry if they are not there immediately. This is why describing the object is beneficial. It helps allay nervousness and panic over not having immediate impressions. They won’t come immediately every time ~ Ted Andrews
Psychometry is also useful in energy healing. A sensitive healer can place their hand on the body of a person and see the source of the disease or pain. Many times the healer will even be given impressions of what types of herbs or treatments would be best for the patient. This method of healing is sometimes referred to as the “laying on of hands.”
There are Egyptian tomb paintings depicting this type of healing and often associated with the god Anubis of the goddess Isis. When the Egyptians would come to the temples of the priests and priestesses they would be made to lay down and given a sleep herb, so that the healers could ‘read’ their dreams. Sacred oils produced in the training temples of the priests and priestesses would be administered to the patient, by rubbing it on their bodies to make them whole again.
In early American folk magic the healer or wise woman would lay her hands on a person to read their ‘humors’ or energies. They would then prescribe the appropriate herbal remedy to dispel illness from the patient.
