We don't we have a thread like this yet?
I'll start dumping some books and links and feel free to contribute if you want, and ask questions/deliver help on the subject here.
btw let's please not focus on tarot? I created this thread so we could spread our knowledge on so many methods of divination.
VERY reliable website about nordic runes
For my personal divination so far, I've accumulated the following tools and tested them out.
Tarot Cards: The method I've had the most success with, my go-to if I ever feel like doing a general reading for my day or when I'm feeling conflicted.
Scrying via Pendulum: My sister, a practicing witch, got me a pendulum as a gift because I have a habit of hanging things from my desk. I wouldn't call it reliable. I've heard a lot of people who use them say that you have to 'tune' them, so I've been using it off and on for half a year now with results that make me rather skeptic. Maybe try it with different materials?
I Ching: Very reliable, likely moreso than Tarot in my experience. Very direct form of divination. I'd recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new method.
Palmistry: Tried it off and on, never had much luck, not experienced enough and have a hard time really learning the art.
Anyone have tips for scrying and palmistry? They seem unreliable, but I've heard people swear by them.
>Scrying via Pendulum
I'm very skeptical when you talk about scrying it above some words like "yes, no, maybe" but when you want like to find someone lost or something, you can scry a crystal for it to point the desired direction to him.
I dont got much learning myself because i'm focused onto different kind of readings, but Palmistry is VERY reliable. It even got science proof etc. The problem is to find and separate the genuine palmistry (generally refered as Chiromancy) and the lucky shot bullshit.

Agreed. Much more practical than the tarot, I find.
Thanks for your recommendations. I-ching has gotten my attention before but I've never tried it. I'll be sure too in the near future. I've done various stuff (tarot, pendulum, dowsing rods, fire, water, being shown shapes or having direction pointed by trees or animals, pure intuition, etc.) but I'm not that great at any. I think tarot has given me the best results so far, but I have been successful with the others numerous times. As for the pendulum, the key is much more within yourself than in the material or some tuning process. Those may help, but the key is being clear and open (almost trancey but doesn't have to be so deep) and to receive the answers while not hoping for one or the other. It can be pretty tricky unless I'm in the right state of mind. I have a friend who is a past life regression therapist whose very experienced with clearing distractions and focusing on that state. His pendulum work is pretty damn solid. Also, per his recommendation, I only use yes or no. Giving options like "maybe" can just ass confusion.
Divination is my jam... so to speak. One of the corner stones of the occult. I love reading and studying about divination. I practice too, here are some of the ones I know
I've always wanted to get into I-Ching. But I've never had the resources (the almanac, hexagonal coins, etc.) - I've heard it's quite extensive. From what I've read, it seems very accurate/fun.
Same goes for Runes. Never owned or made my rune set before. But I do have reading material to reference what they mean, how to divine meaning, etc.
With palmistry, I feel like it covers more of the personality traits or is indicative of the querent's behavior as a person/whole - moreso than the future. But there are some aspects of "fortune telling" in there.
I'm going to ask a question. Now I don't care how you get your answers, what method you're using, etc. Hell. I don't even expect an answer to my question, just a post.
I don't know your method, so here's some general information about myself.
My name is Anthony. I am 19 years of age. I have a knack for drawing, specifically eyes. My sunsign is Capricorn.
For as long as I can remember I've felt imprisoned in a space of corrupted emotion. Like a cloud that looms overhead, following you constantly. I wish to know more about it. Why it follows me, where it came from, and how to get rid of it.
Basically everything reminds me of that dark cloud. I want it to go away.
How can I achieve this?
Thank you for your consideration.
Id say it's depression, but it's so damn persistent that I can't wrap my head around it. I have no reason to be depressed. I live a better life than most people, and yet I can't keep myself from feeling all gloomy and shit. It makes np sense to me.
And the only sentient quality I can notice is that it comes and goes, and when it gets really muddy, for some reason, it gets pushed back like the depression is being fought off. But I know it'll return again at a later time. It always does. Whether it be minutes days or months. It comes around.
Depression is fed by thoughts, but its not a logical thing. In the deepest pits of my past depressions even positive things like the support of loved ones or any other blessings that came my way were twisted by my mind into something to make me feel guilty or unworthy. Its all about acceptance of the current state and optimism for the future. All those self help books about the law of attraction and the power of "Now" are really on to something. I'm preoccupied now, but if you'd like later on I can shoot you a quick remote Reiki healing session to see if I can help or I sense anything more.
Huh. Reiki healing sounds... intriguing. I tried getting into the whole energy-works scene from learning about prana and chi to performing elementary qigong exercises. I didn't get far with this however. I think I lacked motivation and cause to continue.
If you offer I'll accept. Give it a try and tell me what you feel. I'm too simple minded to understand loa beyond "I want, go and get".
Its sort of more "I want, so I'll think about having it til its given to me" but that's also pretty simplified. I'll send you some healing later on and if this thread is still alive I'll tell you what I find.
No one has truly raised themselves alone - we all need help and seek it from time to time.
Divination comes in many forms. It can be as simple as advice. I'd personally seek professional help from a therapist, if I were in your situation.
>I was depressed a few years ago and sought counseling
Void sounds lovely. And I hate to sound pessimistic, but it's more like a silent scream than a screaming silence. It grabs your attention away from everything, even from the organized patterns of chaos. Maybe I should give in. Last time I tried my attitude tried to 180 and then I was back to square 1.
Pretty edgy, and I don't think chaos feels like a cloud (more like a vaccuum or whirlpool to me.) The rest seems pretty good, though. Embracing entropy and allowing both good and bad things (friends, materials, money, pain, injury, grief, loved ones, etc.) to come and go on their own without actively trying to force them closer or away is a great practice and can do much for you in the form of acceptance. Very Zen, Anon. Well done.
Tire yourself out with extreme mental or physical activity. Get into competitive League of Legends/ DOTA2. You'll use so much of that energy, whether it's chaotic or depression, getting mad at your teammates and yourself.
Then you'll truly know what letting go is.
I... don't want to see doctors. I know where the feelings stemmed from. I used to take ritalin for my ADD. Those little suckers fucked me up emotionally. Rendered me a completely hollowed out human. I've been fine since I've been off them I've improved. But I don't want someone giving me meds for something meds have done.
But now the feelings have changed. They don't feel like the depression I had back then nor do they feel like the spikes in attitude. The depression I feel nowadays is constantly in motion. Disagreeing with the sunshine.
Yeah. I do that by overthinking. That's when the attitude 180s and neutralizes itself.
I wasn't trying, but it does come off as edgy doesn't it?
I've heard it explained that way. Id have to honestly try it out for a while before I determine it's effectiveness. Ill keep this in mind.
Have you ever head about something like "destiny reading"? This is the true porpuse for why I created this thread.
It's very autistic/schizo like everyone on the streets seems familiar to me. I can see into their past and future naturally. Sometimes I don't even need to se the person. I can see the "destiny" in the air. It's like the mystical tangle of chaos is clear to me.
And I can't find more about it anyware. Halp, someone?
Can you send me a photo of your face? Not a selfie would be better. A spontaneous shot would be perfect.
You ask a lot of me. Id rather not have my face posted. However I can take a photo and send it via email. Id prefer keeping my anonymity.
I think these are called cold readings. Readings without tools.
I apologize, I sensed a bit of troll in your comment and as I've been trying to shoo them off this board all morning I may have been overzealous with you. It is rather hard to talk about the darker/chaotic aspects of this stuff without sounding a little edgy. I misjudged your comment.
If you want my honest opinion - I think we make our destiny. But there are "certainties" and near future things that are very discernible. The further you go out to sea - the harder it is to see the shoreline. Make sense?
yeah i forgot sometimes that this is still 4chan
you cand send me here http://ask.fm/tiomalvado
fuck anonymity. 4chan can't send me pizza boxes couse i'm from a different country anyway
and thx for the cold reading thigy, but there are plenty of them. I need to find more about this one specific kind of cold readin
yup, totally. Destiny is more like a very good suggestion on how to live a cool life. Suggestion that never comes directly to us perhaps lol
some perks of a person's destiny are fixed por life/soul and some are volatile, changing according to how you conduct your actions.
That's how i feel. And i feel so fucking schizo beucase sometimes on the crows i want to shout like YOU ARE ALL FUCKING NOT FOLLOWING YOUR DESTINY WELL OF COURSE YOUR LIFE SUCKS

Sorry, not today. I have prior plans. I'll start a thread when I can. Perhaps there is another diviner who may be able to help you.
I can help you with this - ever get in touch with the divine lately? Ever take the reigns of your future?
I don't blame you. A lot of people are calling others out in this board. Its the prevalent culture that makes us type troll, shill, disinfo, and anything you can think of.
Alright. Ill send you my picture in a few minutes. I'm going to hheat up some food.
In addition to those slain in battle, the Israelites had put to the sword Balaam son of Beor, who practiced divination. Joshua 13:22
For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king." For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king." For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king." 1 Samuel 15:23
16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” 18 She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. Acts 16:16-40
Cast out your demons and repent to Jesus Christ!
Hey, man. Just finished your Reiki session. You definitely seem depressed. Your only chakra firing at a healthy capacity is your Root chakra. It deals with basic survival and financial security, which makes sense as you said you have a better life than most, I imagine you're usually safe and financially secure. I'd recommend doing a "letting go" style of meditation so just relax and be comfortable in the current moment. Also sunlight, healthy diet, exercise, socializing, picking up a new hobby, or even just watching funny movies can help over time. I wish you a quick recovery.
