When I feel uncertain about a decision or situation, I sometimes use a system of divination to gain clarity.
Divination is a means to gain insight into current and future events and to access hidden knowledge and inner resources.
The process of divination dates back thousands of years and is embedded in a variety of spiritual and cultural contexts. The I-Ching (Yijing) is one of the most well known forms of divination. But there are many others like the use of other sacred texts, mala beads, a mirror, or tarot cards. Feng shui and numerology are also considered methods of divination.
In my tradition, many great spiritual masters rely upon divination to make important decisions. They usually formulate a question and request a divination from another spiritual master. One who has developed the ability to practice divination for the benefit of others through years of rigorous training, study, and specific spiritual practices.
Divination can be employed to ask questions about work, illness, financial issues, major decisions, relationships, love, family matters, spiritual practice, challenges and obstacles, and other events or situations.

Someone told me that I have a magical wand, a very magical wand. But I need to use it fancifully not prosaically.
That prompted this week’s Question for Contemplation!
Do you feel like you can make magic happen? If you had a magic wand, what would you transform within yourself or in your life?
This could be quite a profound question. Of course, there might be practical things that pop immediately into mind.
But I suggest letting this one simmer a bit. What would really make a positive difference in the deepest or strongest way?
Of course, if you just want a new car, I won’t object! Sometimes, a practical item is the order of the day. There’s no right or wrong answer, just what’s true for you.
Have fun. And please share in the comments.

I’m delighted to have a guest post today at the Deva Coaching blog as part of Sandi Amorin’s fabulous month-long series on self-care.
Here’s a taste of my article:
“There’s nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” – Shakespeare in Hamlet
The ultimate way to care for your self is to make friends with you own mind.
Why? Because the mind is the creator of happiness and the creator of suffering; the creator of goodness and the creator of harm. How you experience your world – your internal world and the external one – all depends on how you perceive.
Who’s the Boss?
Simply said, there are three avenues through which we create happiness or suffering for ourselves and others: the body, the speech, and the mind. But which one is the boss?
I’ll let you in on the secret right away. It’s the mind that’s running the show.
You might say, “Hey, wait a minute. I suffer because my body hurts. Isn’t it the body that’s the culprit?”
Please continue reading at the Deva Coaching blog. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments there. Did I get it right? Is this really the ultimate in self-care? I would really appreciate it if you shared a link to the post there too. With love and gratitude, Sandra
