Divination with Chopped Herbs
Fresh finely chopped herbs can also be used as a medium for creating
whole pictures to answer questions. Scattering herbs is another
method of divination and has the
advantage of creating a three
moving picture that can be easily
rearranged by shaking, much like a kaleidoscope
image. It is like
taking a dream
image, and being able to hold it and study possible interpretations.
true divinatory herbs are parsley, sage, rosemary, and
thyme. You can
mix these divinatory herbs to create a herb picture.
any fresh or dried herbs of the kind sold in jars can be
used, as long
as the individual leaves are solid and separate,
rather than powdery.
rosemary, parsley and chives are especially.
Effective for herb pictures since each grain
To use this technique:
Find some firm white or cream paper with a rough surface, about 30cm
square. Think of a question, an issue or a person who is occupying
thoughts, or let you mind roam freely
so that your conscious
focuses on the area of concern, which may be very different from that
a conscious question. Shake a handful of herbs on to the paper
the paper at either end,
and shake it until it forms an image or a whole scene. If
interpretation does not spring to mind, close your eye
for a few
then open them and look at the herbs through half closed eyes.
When you have identified your
first image, gather the herbs together
centre of the paper and toss the paper or swirl the herbs around to
patterns emerge. Note the image at each stage but do not try to try
it in depth, although
you may wish
to sketch each picture in your psychic notebook.
Repeat until you have five images or scenes Finally
study each of the
turn. If the areas suggested below do not seem to fit read the images
other and weave them into a scenario.
IMAGE 1 : will tell you the real issue or question, which may be
the one you consciously considered.
IMAGE 2 : will tell you the obstacles you need to overcome to achieve
happiness. These may be internal fears or external opposition. Again
this may be
IMAGE 3 : tells
you of helpful influences, whether your own talents
or other people.
