Divination is a Controversial Topic
For many Divination is a controversial topic, seen on the negative side as ‘usurping your will’ or ‘not trusting in God’s will’, and even ‘opening the way for negative energy to enter your life’. I’m a great respecter of people’s right to their beliefs, and if firmly rooted in seeing Divination as negative, then let it be so.
For those who are open to a different view I offer another perspective.
At the core of belief in Divination is the understanding that our world is held together by a force greater than each individual life, and this force generates an organizing power/principle that makes the elements flow together. For some it’s God, for others the Universe, and many other names in between.
The second core understanding is that our lives are influenced by things both seen & unseen, material & spiritual. Just as in the material world there is good/bad, night/day, in the spiritual world there is positive/negative.
The third core understanding is that the unseen (spiritual) plays an important role in determining whatever manifests in our seen (material) lives.
These 3 understandings are likely universal to both, people who feel Divination is negative (dis-empowering), and those who view it as positive (empowering). It is at the crossroads of interpretation of these 3 understandings that persons choose divergent paths.
4 Reasons to say Yes to Divination
as a means of
As I have been a receiving advice through Divination for the past 20 years, and have been a Diviner myself for the past 14, I’d like to share my views on Divination as an effective Personal Empowerment Tool. It’s relevant to put a disclaimer here, and say that I will be generally referring to the Divination systems of IFA & Santeria & Egyptian Cosmology
Let’s begin with a definition of what it is
My Definition: Divination creates a sacred space where your highest self’s connection with the Divine helps you to navigate, with greater clarity, the world you live in.
- EVERY AREA OF LIFE HAS EXPERTS. As individuals we are all born with skills, talents & abilities which are made unique through our experiences. Many people are able to sharpen those talents to become their career, and thus we have heart surgeons, electrical engineers, artists, Pastors & Diviners. The Diviner’s special skill is to investigate, on your behalf, how the unseen (spiritual) has been affecting your external life, and help you to see where you may be out of alignment, so you make the necessary adjustments.
- SOMETIMES WE CREATE OUR OWN DELUSIONS. Life is hectic! In trying to get ahead financially, have good relationships and create better health for our bodies, we can miss many of the messages our life is trying to give us. We’re not wrong, often we’re just tired and overwhelmed. Divination creates a space for you to gain clarity and direction.
- WE ALL WANT TO AVOID PITFALLS. Our intuition often leads us to the right choice, however, we have all had situations where we just can’t figure out the next ‘best’ move. And the conflicting advice we are receiving from loved ones keeps adding to the confusion in our minds. These ‘crossroad’ decisions, are often made less complex after having Divination done for you.
- WE DON’T HAVE TO DO “IT” ALONE. The advice received during a Divination session can help us to feel the support of our ‘angels’ ‘guides’ ‘ancestors’ and the Divine. That feeling of being protected and guided is very empowering to help overcome our life’s challenges.
Thanks for taking the time to read through, and I do hope this information has been helpful. Wishing you Unlimited Blessings!!
May your CHOICES reflect your HOPES and not your Fears.
