As I learned about the metaphysical world, I quickly realized the benefits of divination tools. I believe these tools can aid and help you go in the right direction. My first experience was with tarot / oracle cards. I also experienced readings with runes, followed by palmistry, toe reading and pendulums. Tarot cards are not much different than playing cards. The decks have 76 cards, which includes 20 major arcana cards and 56 minor arcana cards. Although all tarot decks are basically the same, the art is different. Tarot can be complex to learn, due to the symbolism in the art.
Oracle cards are often simpler. Each deck is different and unique, and has a theme. The cards are shuffled with the intention to answer your questions and laid out into a spread. Each reader uses a spread that works for him/her. My style is to just lay them in row as they are pulled.
Once the cards are laid out, the reader sees and interprets the messages that the cards are relaying.
Runes are symbols carved into crystals, wood or glass pieces. The runes are put into a bag or bowl and either the reader or you will pull out a Rune to be interpreted. Palmistry and Toe readings use the shapes and lines in your hands and feet. You are probably saying “Toe Reading?” and I say, it’s a must have! (I’ve had one before and it was amazing) Pendulums are a weight suspended from a chain or cord. Most people will use crystal points with a chain attached. The energy that surges through your fingertips along with your guides, is what makes it move. Pendulums can be used to answer a yes / no answer or in a healing.
I also feel we should mention Mediumship. Mediumship is communication with those that have passed on to the other side. A Medium can also connect with your guides. Some Mediums use a divination tool to receive any messages that spirits and guides want to share
The most important part of receiving a reading is the connection you have with the reader. Take a few minutes before the reading starts to make sure you have a connection. This will make your reading amazing.
