The topic of divination covers a broad range of tools and techniques to access the Divine for spiritual guidance and information. Walk into any metaphysical shop or new age bookstore, and you are inundated with a plethora of ways to learn and perform the art of divination.
Tarot decks are one of the most popular divinatory tools today, and come in a variety of decks, ranging from traditional artwork, to angels, cats, Halloween decks, and more. Just about any subject you can think of, there’s sure to be a Tarot deck designed with that theme!
The Tarot tends to rise in popularity during times of great transition here on Earth. If we look back in history, during the Medieval and Renaissance periods, people were drawing upon the wisdom of the Tarot for help and guidance during times of confusion, fear, and uncertainty. The earliest decks found in Milan Italy and France date back to the 15th Century and are in now kept safely in museums in Italy. Read the rest of this entry »
If you are wanting to develop your psychic abilities, making time to practice, and developing your own set of psychic symbols, are key to seeing results. At some point, if you’re consistent, you will start seeing evidence that you are opening up psychically. One of the first things that showed up for me was that I started to have vivid dreams at night that seemed to come true.
I have always kept a dream journal and have always been interested in my dreams. I read a lot of books on dream interpretation and analysis and have always thought that my dreams were trying to tell me something. But when my dreams started playing out in real life, I was quite amazed. And this may be the first area where you can get very clear, concise messages from your intuition – from your dreams.

I started working with the Tarot when I was 14 years old. I read the metaphysical books of the time and wanted to explore my budding intuition. One afternoon at a bookstore, I was drawn to the Rider-Waite Tarot deck – I felt an instant pull to it in particular!
I wasn’t going to the bookstore that day to buy Tarot cards, but once I did I couldn’t put the mysterious deck of cards out of my mind. Once opened, I studied the deck for weeks on end, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I soon read the cards for others.
The first time I was doing a card spread for myself, my mother walked into my bedroom and told me that my great grandmother also read the cards, as well as tea leaves. It was if she wasn’t surprised her daughter would be interested in reading the cards, yet she didn’t encourage me either. Read the rest of this entry »
One way is through an intimate relationship with another person, on a very personal level. The person in your life that you connect with physically, can allow you to deepen your senses and develop your senses and sensuality. Love and passion are great for the soul, the body, and developing and expanding your intuition.
You can also deepen your intuition through a psychic circle. Psychic circles, sometimes called development circles, are a group that meets to support, encourage and to help each other develop intuitively and psychically. It is a great opportunity to connect with other like-minded sensitive people. If you are not sure if there is a group in your area, you could always start one. Read the rest of this entry »
Meditation is vital in developing your psychic abilities, as it develops your ability to switch your brainwave states while remaining fully conscious. Frequent meditation specifically helps you achieve and sustain an alpha brainwave state where psychic information comes easier than in the normal waking state of beta.
The theta brainwave state is where most of us fall asleep, but some experienced meditators can achieve this state and still remain aware. This is the state that a lot of mediums are in when they communicate with the dead. I saw an episode of The Dr. Oz Show where he had Teresa Caputo, the “Long Island Medium” hooked up to a machine that measured brain waves (messing up her hair in the name of science) as she read for the audience. She was in a theta brain wave state while she got the messages.
I don’t bill myself as a medium, but I have had some remarkably clear messages from spirit as I was beginning to fall asleep, in that in-between sleep and awake state. Lately, I have been working on extending that state of mind as I wake up, to stay in that theta state as long as I can and see what information I can receive. Read the rest of this entry »
Could some of the famous prophets, such as Nostradamus, or the prophets of the King James Version of the Bible, or the prophet Mohammad, actually have been time travelers?
And is it merely coincidence that the Oracle of Delphi used a brass seat for visions of the future? As did Nostradamus, the 16th Century French poet and visionary. Nostradamus writes, “I will be seated at night, in my secret study. Alone sitting upon a stool of brass, a flame shall leap forth from the solitude, granting that which is not to be believed in vain.”
And, in the 1895 HG Wells fiction novel, The Time Machine, the protagonist of the story uses a black and polished brass time machine to gain mechanical control over time. Is there something about sitting on brass that allows one to see into the future? Or, could they possibly be talking about a brass seat on a sort of vehicle? Read the rest of this entry »
Clients who visit me for private sittings often appear to be fascinated by my crystal ball, which always sits on a stand to the left of me as I work. With the help of my lovely crystal ball and a selection of divination cards, including the Tarot, I get assistance from spirit and my Ancestors in the form of symbols and letters.
Crystal-gazing, known as crystallomancy is a popular form of scrying. Crystal balls were known to be used in Europe way back in the 1500s, but historians also mention them being used at some time or other by many other cultures of the world. Read the rest of this entry »
Animals send us messages of wisdom and healing if we are intuitive and open to receiving them. Entrenched in both the Celtic and Aboriginal spiritual traditions is the belief that animals have been gifted with lessons to pass on to mankind when needed.
Native American peoples refer to it as animal medicine. The term “medicine” does not suggest modern medical science or drug treatment, but instead refers to achieving balance and harmony within ourselves and with nature. Mother nature is a powerful ally and teacher. There are several ways to discover your animal guides. One way is to have an animal card reading, which is similar to a Tarot reading. Through this process you will discover that we each have nine animals that walk with us in our lifetime. Seven of them stay with us forever and walk by our side, while two may change as our life journey progresses. Animal medicine readings can take you on a deep and enlightening spiritual journey. Animal medicine is powerful. Read the rest of this entry »
