Divination with Chopped Herbs

Fresh finely chopped herbs can also be used as a medium for creating
symbols or
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.

The four true divinatory herbs are parsley, sage, rosemary, and
thyme. You can
mix these divinatory herbs to create a herb picture.
However, 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 is distinct.

To use this technique:

Find some firm white or cream paper with a rough surface, about 30cm
(1 foot)
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
in a conscious question. Shake a handful of herbs on to the paper
and, holding
the paper at either end,
gently tip 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
seconds and
then open them and look at the herbs through half closed eyes.
When you have identified your first image, gather the herbs together
in the
centre of the paper and toss the paper or swirl the herbs around to
see what new
patterns emerge. Note the image at each stage but do not try to try
to interpret
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
images in
turn. If the areas suggested below do not seem to fit read the images
one after
the other and weave them into a scenario.

IMAGE 1 : will tell you the real issue or question, which may be
different from
the one you consciously considered.
IMAGE 2 : will tell you the obstacles you need to overcome to achieve
success or
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 resources
or other people.
IMAGE 4 : indicates they best way forward.
IMAGE 5 is the likely outcome or change.
