Divination Systems

Divination systems work by stimulating intuition thereby allowing people to think outside the box and creatively solve problems.

Divination systems have been used by emperors, kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, successful businessmen and businesswomen and other elite members of most cultures and societies worldwide for many thousands of years.

The divination process is a two-way conversation, wherein we get feedback from the divine via the stimulation of our intuition so that we can perceive more of the divine order behind appearances.

– Paul O’Brien in Divination: Sacred Tools for Reading the Mind of God

Synchronicity

Carl Jung coined the term synchronicity to describe the phenomenon of meaningful coincidence.

Inspire Decision Making

Ancient divination systems were created by mystics to support self-knowledge and inspire decision-making by stimulating intuition in order to stimulate thinking outside the box about problems that logic can’t handle.

Time-honoured divination systems include:

  • the I Ching,
  • Shamanic Divination,
  • Astrology,
  • Chinese Astrology,
  • Druid divination
  • Numerology,
  • Runes,
  • Tarot

These divination systems have been used by elite members of societies worldwide for thousands of years to help them solve problems and be successful.

Divination Works

There is no question of there being proof that divination works. Divination either stimulates your intuition and creativity, or it doesn’t.

Nobody is asking you to believe anything. Give it a sincere try.

If it works for you, terrific.

But you are not required to adopt any particular beliefs for divination to do so.

If your beliefs prevent you from approaching divination with an open mind, it can’t work for you, because intuitive reception depends on being open.

Taoism

Taoism came into my life through the I Ching. Taoism, or Daoism, is based on the teachings of the Tao Te Ching written in the 6th century BC in China by Lao Tze with an emphasis on spiritual harmony within the individual complements the social duty focus of Confucianism.

Taoism symbol -Taiji Tu - Yin/Yang

Taoism is rooted in the cultural experience of the Chinese people, and for centuries influenced the philosophy, art, literature, science, statecraft and the military arts, medicine, the martial arts, divination, and especially the arts of spiritual cultivation in China.

Tao

Tao is, according to Deng Ming-Dao in Everyday Tao: Living with Balance and Harmony “literally the movement of all life … the total ongoing of the universe,” and that to live according to Taoist principles is to go along with this movement, this flow. Deng Ming-Dao notes eight “special qualities” of people who internalize Taoism as being: simplicity, sensitivity, flexibility, independence and being focused, cultivated, disciplined, and joyous.

Two Main Taoist Schools: Philosophical & Religious

The two main Taoist schools are philosophical Taoism or Tao-chia and religious Taoism or Tao-chaio. Tao-chia generally focuses on the philosophical writings of Lao-Tzu, Chuang-Tzu and other early mystics while Tao-chiao emphasizes religious rituals aimed at attaining immortality.

Taoism and Confucianism – the two great Chinese belief systems – were founded at about the same time and continue to co-exist the China of today.

Shamanism: The Roots of Taoist Practice

The Taoist and Shamanic worldviews have much in common and this is reflected in Taoism today. Shamanism goes back for thousands of years before the emergence of China and Taoism.

For instance, the Shangqing (also spelled Shang-ch’ing) sect of Taoism is the most mystical of Taoism’s main lineages. In it we find practices similar to those performed by the shamanic cultures of ancient China.

”The world of Shang-ch’ing Taoism: a world where guardian spirits live inside the human body; a world where mystics fly to the sky and journey among the stars; a world where people absorb the essence of the sun and moon to cultivate immortality; a world where the highest attainment in life is to merge with the Tao in bliss and ecstasy …”

– Eva Wong, from The Shambhala Guide to Taoism

Taoist priests use talismans to invoke the powers and protection of supernatural beings. We see that the components of many Taoist rituals and ceremonies, as well as some forms of qigong, are oriented toward communication with the plant and animal kingdoms. This goes with the practices of Taoist Inner Alchemy are designed to produce, from the very bodies of its practitioners, the mystic wine of ecstatic spiritual union.

I Ching – Book of Changes: Joseph Yu

I Ching - King Wen - 64 Hexagram arrangement

I Ching literally means the Book of Changes.

The I Ching is the most ancient book in China on analysis of the present situation with possible changes in the future.

Chinese philosophy advocates the belief that mankind is part of the Universe and that what happens in the near future can be predicted by what is currently in one’s mind.

What is in one’s mind can be transferred into apparently unrelated outcomes of a random experiment. Using the Text of I Ching these outcomes can be interpreted to predict the outcomes of various actions. Tossing coins is one such random experiment.

The original text of the I Ching is complex and profound even for the expert. I have extracted the essence of the text and made reference to our daily life experiences. The reading is then easy to understand.
