About divination

manju-tarotWe as curious humans have always looked for answers to mysteries. What is our purpose of being here? What does the future hold? Can we change it? There’s an archeological explanation to it that humans are bound to have such deep thoughts and quests and some kind of form of divination is used to support this quest. Divination gives insight to the future. Through various tools like tarot cards, fortune-telling cards, astrology, scrying, crystal ball reading, cowrie shells reading, runes, and coffee readings, solutions to problems, answers to unanswered questions, guidance and help can be found. Any form of divination used is aimed to give relief, assistance and aid the querrant to resolve issues and problems which need to be resolved. In India, fortune telling, astrology, leaf readings are very common forms of divination methods practiced. On the other hand, tarot card and angel card readings are one of the most common and widely used divination methods.

How divination works?

Divination often tends to get associated with religion rather than fortune-telling. There are some people who feel so attuned to god that they seem to get divine messages from them. People who practice the way of God and have dedicated their life to that path also fall under being blessed by the Divine and seem to attain divinity of some kind.

In ancient times, sages and hermits practiced various forms of divination especially when they were living far from each other and wanted to know what was going on in another gurukul. Meditation and learning yoga kriyas were their tools of divination. Divination was something that they learned or acquired with their penances, their holistic and simple lifestyle. Today divination is learnt by many and practiced at a professional level. Different people connect to different divination tools and then go forward to specialise in that specific area of expertise.

Today divination has become more popular due to the digital information age. A lot of people think it’s some kind of mysticism no one will comprehend, but the truth is, in order to master the art of divination the only thing you need to believe in is your intuition. Divination is an excellent way to stimulate your intuition in order to think outside the box about problems that logic can’t handle The question that comes to mind then is, “Who can practice divination?” Anyone who is intuitive and has the interest can learn. Astrology is one scientific divination branch that gets passed on from generation to generation. As a family tradition, these people learn the art and spend their entire lifetime practising this art. There are many people who have an interest in learning anything that helps them to deal with problems and forewarns them about dangers. The word Divination has always had a sense of mysticism attached to it. Anything that goes beyond the ordinary and is way above the normal brings about a sense of awe and respect. There are some who blindly follow anything that is said to them in the name of divination. There are most who will think it through.

If your let your beliefs approach divination with an open mind, it will work for you, because intuitive reception depends on being open. Through divination systems, we have been gifted with symbolic languages to interpret divine will. The symbols and archetypes that form the heart of all divination systems represent the dynamics of human life, including social and political interaction. Because it uses the language of archetypes, divination becomes more than a meditation technique. It can provide insights, timely advice and directions from the divine.

The coming few articles will focus on details of common divination methods practiced today.Until then, believe in yourselves and embrace the beautiful journey of self-discovery!

Your career messages revealed!
What message did you get? How did it resonate with you? Comment below and tag a friend who needs a career message today!
1). 3 of spades – As you might be having difficulties at work or coping up with it, it is very important for you to acknowledge your emotions. Maybe you made a decision you are not happy about, maybe you’re facing negative blocks at work or struggling with deadlines, during this tough time, you should see pain as a learning opportunity. Challenges remain but once they are no longer perceived as negative or bad, they lose a lot of their impact. You have the ability to conquer anything that comes your way, therefore your next step is to take it all in, and show them who’s the boss!
2). 3 of clubs – Your plans are now well underway and you are starting to consider even more opportunities to expand your current plans. More such opportunities wait at your door in the form of study, travel, business, or learning. You need to become more aware of them as there may be more opportunities standing out for you than you are aware of. Your next step is to concentrate, cooperate, and remain open-minded. It’s time to think BIG!
3). Queen of clubs – Your work is proof that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Due to your outgoing nature and charismatic personality, you’re able to blend in confidently with your co-workers and are full of ideas that you’re ready to share and implement with others. However, it is important for you to stay in the grind and not get carried away by your own charisma. Your next step is to hold you place in the chain of command and respect the hierarchy. Restrain yourself and be loyal to your higher-ups. Stick to your helm, even though you might be motivated by a strong dedication. Perform in good faith and whatever you desire will come.

My body is my friend

imagescaf0edh5

Our body is made up of cells and each of these cells has its own intelligence and memory. The cells in our body are constantly imbibing everything that we hear and all that is going on around us. All information, positive and negative, is stored in the cellular memory and the cells respond accordingly. For example when you keep saying : I am so fat, it is difficult for me to lose weight, – this is all that your cells are hearing and so they respond to these statements – by holding on to the fat – so that your statement “ I am so fat ‘ remains so in your reality.
As you learn to talk to your body lovingly and positively – it responds to you in a positive manner. Issues of weight loss, ugliness, and complexion are no longer a struggle. Consider your body as your friend and walk the path together. Thus making the journey one of least effort and most results. Respect your body’s intelligence by talking AND listening to it.

In the morning as you begin your day and in the night as you end your day – use the technique to talk to your body and watch amazing results.
Lovingly touch your skin and talk to your body. Say that you love your body and thank it for functioning in wonderful order. Thank your body for serving you and your life purpose.

When you are trying to lose weight, or gain weight or removal of disease or any work with the body, understand you are not alone in it. Your body is an integral part of it and of you. Make your body your friend and work with it, rather than taking it for granted and just “doing to” or even experimenting the body.

For weight loss: a minute just prior to beginning your exercise routine, speak to your body lovingly. Assure your body that you will respect its limits. Affirm to yourself: My body is of the weight best suited for me to be healthy’. All excess weight is easily and effortlessly being dropped. Also add that you are helping your body drop all the excess weight. You both are working together towards good health.

For disease: Speak to your body that you are ready to release the pile up of past emotions and that it need not store these past emotions in your body. Ask the body for it to be released gently, just as much as you can handle. Affirm to yourself: “The past no longer exists. I let go easily and gently.” “I love myself, I value myself.”

For beauty: Move your palms on your face, feeling the smoothness of your skin. Talk to your body to release all toxins, emotional and physical, that keep your skin from its natural glow. Affirm to yourself, preferably, in front of the mirror “My skin is radiant and healthy. I am happy. I am a beautiful child of the Universe.

As you practice talking to your body, it will respond to you. You now need to learn to listen to your body and understand these responses. You will suddenly be attracted towards certain type of foods more than you have ever been. You might want to try new foods. If your body requires movement, you will be drawn to new forms of exercise, dance or walk. Whatever no longer serves you to remain healthy the body will simply reject. You will find your body rejecting foods that you may have always been eating. The body rejects by – lack of taste, upset stomach, sweat. Never force your body – for anything. It is simply disrespectful. Make your body your friend today, the rewards are sweet.

Depression is a luxury.Can you afford it ?

In this beautiful world, feeling depressed is a luxury we cannot afford.
Look around you as you may be walking, talking, dancing or doing anything and everything. See the energy, the bustle, the dynamism. It is all a constant exchange of energy around you. super-yachtPositive and free-flowing in some areas and negative and blocked in some areas. The world is beautiful made up of brilliant colours, shapes, sizes and a spectrum of emotions that take you from one side of the spectrum to another. You have come here with a purpose to do what you have to. You have come here with a plan. But we may deter or deviate from our plans. If we go down a road that we enjoy and see positive results, we appreciate the path roads that lead us nowhere or to placed dark and deep can leave us feeling disgruntled, upset and depressed as well.
But remember, that in your plan there is no space for any depression. When there is so much that you have to achieve there can be no room for you to sit and be depressed. Depression becomes a luxury for you that does not fit in our game plan. Why should we be depressed? When we know what choices to make and what will come out of those choices, then why feel depressed? Think properly, plan carefully and focus on your goals. Surround yourself with positive energy and focus so that you cannot deviate from the path that you have chosen. Depression will make you go ten steps back, make you lose focus and you might not even end up with the results that you want. For some such luxuries are to be avoided. Today co create your own future. There are miles before you can sleep, so there is no room for such luxuries in your game plan. Choose energy, action and life.

Heal with colour

 

peace

Everything around us is made up of energy at various frequencies. Each colour vibrates at a different frequency. We use this difference in vibration of frequencies to heal at the emotional level.
You may sit or lie down. Relax your body and wear comfortable clothing. Visualise the required colour coming from the Universal energy space into the palms of your hands. Gently place your palms on or just above the affected area of your body. Visualise the colour coming through your palms into your body, entering the cells and allowing the cells to heal. To increase the vibrations of the colour, light a candle of the appropriate colour during the healing.
Repeat the healing for 3-5 days, preferably twice a day. Allow healing for about 10-15mins each time. You may use this technique to heal yourself, others, plants, animals, even the Earth
Healing water using colour therapy: Place some water in a glass exposed to the morning sun. ( ideally, before 9:30am or within 3 hours of the rising sun ) Cover the water with coloured glass. As the rays ff the sun pass through this coloured glass, the water is energized with the colour as well as the healing properties of the sun.

Red: Colour of energy, vitality and power. Helps to reduce pain. Not suitable for high blood pressure and anxiety prone persons.
