“Fear is dangerous, not the tarot. The tarot represents the spectrum of the human condition, the good, the evil, the light, and the dark. Do not fear the darker aspects of the human condition. Understand them. The tarot is a storybook about life, about the greatness of human accomplishment, and also the ugliness we are each capable of.”– Benebell Wen
In recent history, Divination has become synonymous with the Salem Witch Trials, sensationalist media and entertainment, as well as otherwise unsavory and taboo occult correlations. This recent reception however, does nothing to represent the diverse history, variety and applications of Divination.
Divination is not “devil worship,” nor is it even “fortune telling.” Divination is the spiritual practice of using reflective tools to access subconscious and superconscious information that may otherwise be compromised by our over-active and all-consuming modern consciousness.
“A tainted society has invented psychiatry to defend itself against the investigations of certain superior intellects whose faculties of divination would be troublesome.”– Antonin Artaud
If you look at the root of the word Divination, you will even see the word DIVINE. Divination is the process of opening to the Divine. Aside from any religious dogma or deity, we can appreciate “Divine” to simply mean the sustaining forces which are outside of human control. Divination is therefore a practice of faith and requires humbly putting our own understanding and justifications aside. This act of trust guides us beyond the limitations and constraints of our human shortcomings – THIS is the power and potential of a Divination practice.
Divination can also be thought of as the corresponding communication pathway to prayer. When you pray, you are offering your understanding, requests and concerns to the Divine. When you participate in Divination, you are asking to hear the understanding, prompting and wisdom FROM the Divine. mayryanna Shakti practices personal Divination daily as a means of holding space for miracles and magick in her life.
It is important to keep in mind that all actions have metaphysical consequences. If you are interested in exploring Divination for yourself, do not be swayed by fear or superstition, honor your authentic calling to the Divine channel with the quality of respect you hope to receive from the practice. A good place to start is by experiencing a session with an experienced Diviner like mayryanna Shakti.
