Divination

September 2018 Radio Interview with Theresa C. Dintino about Divination, Spiritual Lineages and Working with Elemental Beings

Recently I was interviewed again on the Mystical Positivist Radio Show hosted By Dr. Robert Schmidt and Stuart Goodnick  on KOWS-LP 107.3 FM in Occidental, CA. This is the second time I was invited to be a guest on this lively and engaging show. This time we touched a bit on current events, new projects and then delved even more deeply into the subject of divination and how ones becomes a diviner, the elemental beings and how they work with us, spiritual lineages and how to find them and realign with them. Once again the interview itself offered me much reflection and time for thought as the...

Aligning Ourselves with the Paradigm of the Goddess

The Paradigm (worldview) of the Goddess is a way of life, a way of being, a reality different and other than the current mechanistic paradigm (life as machine) we live in and yet the one revealed more and more through biology, physics, biochemistry and cosmology. This reality has also been confirmed to me through divinations I have done in my time as an initiated diviner. When I first encountered The Paradigm of the Goddess in the books of Marija Gimbutas—wherein she catalogues the archaeological remains of Paleolithic and Neolithic cultures of powerful ancient women long forgotten, ancient...

A Recording for and about the Trees

In September of 2016 I gave a talk at Many Rivers Books and Teas in Sebastopol, CA on my Tree Medicine Trilogy of books. The recording of that event has been made available only recently. I thought I would share it here for anyone that may be interested in listening. In the talk I discuss working with trees on a spiritual level, what I mean when I speak of Tree Medicine, read from the books, Teachings from the Trees, The Amazon Pattern and Notes from a Diviner in the Post Modern World and answer questions from the audience. It was a good night and the discussion was fun and lively. Here’s...

Strega Tree Apothecary: Remedies Direct From the Spiritual Realms to You

I am happy to announce the opening of the Strega Tree Apothecary at stregatree.com, my sister site for the Strega Tree Collective that has and continues to form around the divination and Strega work. When I first received the message from my elemental being friends and ancestors that I should start an apothecary, I imagined it would be offerings of medicinal herbs and remedies much like my great-grandmother had used. She was an herbalist and a midwife. But, much to my dismay, I was not schooled in this and I had too much on my plate to take it up. Knowing I was unschooled in what would be...

Understanding the Meaning of True Compatibility

In the middle of a group divination inquiring into the properties of oil, when I stated aloud that oil and water are not compatible, I was given a very big scolding by the wedeme (elemental beings of the wild). What they told me next was compelling to me. I wish to share it here. Just because oil and water interact in a way that we define as incompatible does not make that the truth. Oil and water are perfectly made for one another. Their interaction and repulsion is a perfect compatibility which actually allows life to happen. The fact that oil can repel water allows many lifesystems to...

The Memory of a Thing is the Song that it Sings

Wedeme tell us that they work with the memories that are stored inside us, inside our bones, inside our psyches, inside our hearts. They tell us the memory of a thing is the song that it sings. They liken this to the way we can hear the sound of the ocean in many shells. They tell us it is the memory of the ocean held within that shell that we hear when that happens. That is also how they hear us. They can “hear” us because they can hear the memory that we are singing. They say it is often a song that even we cannot hear, but they can hear it. I put “hear” in quotes because we must...
