What is Divination?

*a time for checking in with the otherworld *a time for deep listening *a time for diagnosis *a time for prescription a time for checking in with the otherworld Divination is a time to bring to light energies that are unseen to us that are nevertheless pushing against and affecting our present 3D reality. In the village in Africa where the divination tradition I practice is from, people would not think of making a big decision or undergoing a large change without checking in with the ancestors and spirits in the other dimensions through divination. It is similar to the way we would consult...
