Fortune-Telling Book: Reading Crystal Balls, Tea Leaves, Playing Cards,
and Everyday Omens of Love and Luck
by Gillian Kemp
People have been telling fortunes since
time began. You have the power within you to see your own future, or that
of your friends, no matter what your age or circumstance.
The ancient art of divination is a vast
subject, too large to be covered in its entirety here. This little book
shows you simply how to develop your psychic and clairvoyant abilities,
and to invoke them to tell fortunes using every-day household items such
as tea leaves or coffee grounds, a pack of playing cards, a pair of dice,
a bowl of water or ice, candles or apples. Most likely you already have
the ingredients at hand, and because each method is easy to use, you can
begin any time you like. Also included here are everyday omens and
superstitions that have stood the test of time.
Once your mind is receptive to higher
influences, you will find there is far more to life than just what meets
the eye. You've probably already had the experience of knowing who is on
the telephone before you pick it up to answer. Or perhaps you have thought
of someone and then heard from that person or bumped into them, or had a
hunch or a feeling that something would happen. Your intuition is the
compass that will always point you in the right direction. The door is
already open; dare you step through?
TUNING YOUR MIND
Clairvoyance is special sight (literally,
it means "clear sight") that allows you to see the future in a
crystal ball or a tea-cup. If you can think of a lemon, see its shape and
color, cut it in half and smell its aroma in your mind, you have
clairvoyant powers. If not, you can become clairvoyant by training your
imagination to visualize an object or situation.
Psychics have the power to feel, such as
divining by psychometry (below). You can encourage your psychic powers in
a number of ways, often with the help of a friend. The more often you try
these methods, the more accurate your predictions will be.
Try sensing a drawing. Begin by holding out
your left palm, flat and face up. While you have your eyes closed, a
friend should draw a shape in the air-either a heart shape, a square, a
circle, a wavy line or a cross-about 30 mm above your palm. Your challenge
is to sense which shape they have drawn.
Telepathy is thought transference, or
communication between minds using extrasensory means.
Take a deck of playing cards. Remove all
the face cards so that you are left with numbers one to ten in each suit.
Shuffle the remaining 40 cards (20 will be red and 20 black) and pass them
to a friend.
The pair of you should then sit back to
back. Ask your friend to remove the top card and telepathically convey to
you the number on the card and the color of the card. The pair of you
should continue until the pack has been exhausted. Again, the more often
you try, the more accurate you will become.
Psychometry is the divination of facts
about a person via his or her possessions.
To intuit a friend's feelings or details
from their past, present, or future, ask to hold an item of their jewelry,
such as a watch or ring. Hold it with your eyes closed for a few moments.
Because the item has absorbed your friend's aura-the distinctive energy
emanating from their body-you should be able to make a prediction in only
Another method is to hold to your forehead
a letter or card someone has sent. You will detect their mood, character
and surroundings in which the letter was written.
