The iching does not give you specific answers to your questions but rather reveals patterns which helps you arrive at the answer you seek. Answers are given in 64 hexagrams of solid lines (yang) and broken lines (yin). These represent a state of being.
The most common method used to determine hexagrams is to toss three coins three times. The traditional method is to toss a set of 50 yarrow sticks.
The iching dates back to around 2852 B.C. The chinese emperor Fu-hsi developed a set of trigrams.
Later on around 1143 B.C. the trigrams were doubled to hexagrams. The iching found its way to western culture in the 19th century
The art of reading tea leaves is reffered to as Tasseomancy. This form of divination is stongly associated with the Gypsies and the English.
The history of tasseomancy can be traced back hundreds of years. During a reading the client drinks a cup of tea but leaves a small amount in the bottom of the cup. The cup is turned upside down on a saucer and turned.
The reader picks up the cup and reads the patterns formed by the tea leaves. Usually the best tea readers also have natural artistic skills.
Various symbols have certain meanings. Time frames are estimated by the proximity of the leaves to the rim.
Leaves closest to the rim represent the immediate future.
Coffee grounds are also used by some readers. This form of divination is thought to have come from Italy.
Divners who read coffee grounds often recite incantations.
Dowsing has been used for centuries as a method for finding water, treasures, gold, metals, people, animals and to tell the past and the future. In fact dowsing has been used for nearly 7,000 years and probably even longer.
It was used by both the ancient wiccans and Chinese. In the middle ages it was used in Europe to find coal deposits and water.
In the 20th century dowsing has been used in archeological and geological work, and by utility companies in locating damaged pipes and cables.
The traditional tool of the dowser is a forked rod made of wood. Certain wood such as Hazel, Willow, Ash and Rowan are the best.
Many dowsers prefer to work with a pendulum on a string. The dowser attunes themself to what is being sought usually through visualization.
The dowser holds the forked end of the rod making sure palms are turned upwards. The dowser walks until the rod trembles and dips down marking the spot.
In the case of dowsing with a pendulum the dowser hangs the pendulum over a map. The pendulum feels like its being pulled down on the spot.
Dowsing is a searching tool that has been used for at least one thousand years by prospectors who have tried, with the help of a Y shaped rod, to locate underground water, ore bodies, oil and other important resources. Dowsing is subjective by nature. Its success depends on the qualities developed by the dowsers themselves, who sense, via a mind-body link, the presence of underground structures.
Scientists have tried to understand the physical basis of dowsing; what factors link the movement of the rod in the dowser's hand to underground structures. No one has yet successfully explained the dowsing signal.
Dowsing searches for high points in electromagnetic energy. When dowsing, the following position is most recommeneded.
Dowsing rods can be made by bending wire coat hangers in the following way:
Rods should be parallel to the ground, and not held too tightly.
The rods will either go cross over, or out apart. You can program then by asking them to show you yes. Do this several times to check if it's correct. Program them by saying:
This is yes, this is yin, this is positive.
Or if no:
This is no, this is yang, this is receptive.
The Ouija Board has been around since the time of the Roman Emporeror Valens in the fourth century. It is also thought to have been used by the Greeks since before the time of Christ.
The modern Ouija Board is the combination of two tools used for scrying. The first is a wheel made up of the letters of the alphabet. The second is a glass, usually a wine glass which is inverted and placed in the middle.
The letters are usually written on small pieces of paper which are placed in a circle around the table.
It was in 1891 that a patent was granted to Elijah J Bond on the first modern Ouija Board. The following year the rights were purchased by William Fuld.
The name Ouija means yes-yes. In 1966 the Parker Brothers purchased the rights to the Ouija Board and shifted its manufacturing facilities to Salem, Massachusetts.
The Ouija Board ended up outselling the game of Monopoly in its first full year at Salem. Over two million copies of the Ouija Board were shipped.
The layout of the Ouija Board seems to vary from country to country. The original and best layout appears to be to place the yes at the top of the circle and the no at the bottom.
The letters are placed in a circle starting with the letter A next to the word yes and continuing around until the final letter Z ends up on the other side of the word yes. The nine numbers from one to nine should be placed at the bottom next to the no.
The board usually requires a minimum of two people to operate it. It is very rare that one person has the power to operate the board.
The two people should sit opposite each other and place the tip of only one finger on the glass. The fingertip should only gently touch the glass.
Someone starts by asking a simple question, such as " is there a spirit present?". If there is no response the question should continued to be asked.
The glass eventually moves and answers the question. The first time you use a Ouija Board is quite startling.
Sometimes someone will deliberatly push the glass but this is easy to spot. The glass tends to move in jerks rather than free flowing.
There are stories that Ouija Boards are dangerous to use. These stories are stupid and should be ignored.
It is helpful to write down the questions you wish to ask before you start. It is also helpful to have a third person writing down the answers as you go for future reference.
Once you become experienced at the Board you will find the pace of responses coming from the glass will increase. In fact sometimes the glass will speed across the table at such great speeds it is almost impossible to keep up.
It should be noted that sometimes the communication will be in foreign languages or sometimes it is English backwards. My advise to most people is to make their own Ouija Board.
This is simple to do and most effective. Just have a smooth table to work from and cut up small pieces of paper to write on. Any glass will do, though a wine glass is most effective.
The responses you get from the Board will really depend on your attitude and commitment.
This is a modern method of scrying and is becoming more popular. Most people are familiar with the sound of when a shell is placed over the ear.
It sort of sounds like the ocean. But in fact it is the sounds of blood flowing through the vessels in your ear.
If however you listen to this sound you will eventually by able to pick up fragments of conversation. At first you may be able to only make out a few words, but in time you will come to understand whole segments of conversations.
The subject of this talk will be usually meaningless, but if you can mentally break into this communication you may find the voices may choose to respond. Just exactly what is happening here Im not sure, but for those of you who have seen the movie "The Phantom Menace" it may give you a clue.
