Recently, one of the Discord servers that I’m a member of posted this question… “What is divination to you? What does it feel like when you do it?”
Divination is a great many things to me as it’s been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, my mother started both my twin and myself out with Lenormand cards as bedtime story prompts when we were children. The three of us would take turns pulling a card and using it to add to the story.
So, for me, divination is bedtime stories with my mother and twin sister when she and I were little.
It’s campfire stories in creaky lawn chairs around a fire with playing cards for prompts.
It’s lazy weekends in the woods communing with the trees, and communication with deity during devotionals and ritual.
It’s seeking answers, reassurances, and sometimes? A little bit of forewarning of what’s to come.
It’s speaking to my subconscious and letting it have a louder voice when it tries to whisper back, connecting to ancestors and guides allowing for easier communication, and a way of coaxing out my wounded inner self to have a heart to heart.
It’s a way for me to help myself and help others as well.
Sometimes? It’s just something to pass the time or sate my curiosity.
