Can people really see signs in the clouds, in shaken up bones, in the light of a candle? The answer, if you believe in the ability of energy to take shapes, is yes.
For centuries there have been oracles. The first cultures to honour them are the Egyptians, Chinese, Greek, and Roman. They were said to have the ear of the Gods and Goddesses, so could see the signs, and also interpret them.
Many battles, coronations, etc., were planned around what the oracles or seers had said. It was not uncommon for Kings or Queens to consult with oracles, seers, or astrologers. There is some indication that a few American presidents, or their wives, believed in the occult.
It is a subject that holds a fascination for many. Some of the techniques used are age old and still exist today. For example, the Tarot cards are ancient, and exist in much the same way they were designed centuries ago. To read them is a skill that needs to be nurtured and studied. However, the final read is still about connecting to your intuition, or sixth sense.
We all have intuition, we can all relate to bringing our umbrella at that last minute because we feel it might rain, and being correct, and happy we have the umbrella, or, the opposite ignoring that little feeling to bring the umbrella, and being caught in a downpour of rain. We can all relate to knowing when the phone rings, who it is, or discussing someone, saying we haven't seen them in awhile, then running into them.
These everyday occurrences, that we all experience, are examples of intuition.
Honing that skill, is what an oracle or seer does. Recognizing the subtle messages the mind sends and the body experiences is what separates the normal from the paranormal.
There are many methods seers use to connect to their intuitive sense, and in the weeks to come we will be exploring some examples of them in this column.
Each week I will also select a Tarot card that will resonate with my readers. I will explain the card and name the deck.
This will be once a week and will be very powerful, as I ask you to "see" throughout the week how this card relates to you.
Thank you, and here is the first card.
Feedback is welcome, as to how the card or the article relates to you.
Our Tarot card for this week:
Selected from the Renaissance Deck
is number 12,
The Hanged Man.
This card indicates that a pause is needed, take some time, you are suspended in a waiting position, but a new time is coming. Liken it to the baby poised to enter the world. Timing is everything. The old ways are no longer working, surrender to the process, leave the past behind, pause, reflect, on what you have learned, and make your plans...
