Description
Discover your psychic powers and learn to use the wonders of nature and the world around you as magical tools of divination.


• Practical and enjoyable exercises help readers reconnect with their innate psychic sensitivity.


• Includes 75 methods and practices of divination from around the world.


Since the beginning of time, diviners and seers have been finding signs and omens in the world around them--in pools of water, tea leaves, delicate patterns of cracked animal bones, and the ripples of clouds in the sky. Because these observers have been able to tap into a deeper level of awareness, they have come to sense hidden truths in powerful and mysterious ways. In modern times we call those who possess these abilities "psychic," but native cultures accepted that each of us has an innate sixth sense and can learn how to read the forces of nature that appear before us.

In this fascinating and enlightening guide, historian and psychic Sarvananda Bluestone shows us how our innate knowledge can be rediscovered, allowing us to become far more in tune with our surroundings than we ever dreamed possible. He teaches us to use everyday objects and the wonders of nature as magical tools that offer a window into the future--and ourselves. Whether watching birds cross the morning sky or divining the subtle energies of the earth, you will see the world in an entirely new light. Filled with practical exercises, How to Read Signs and Omens in Everyday Life demonstrates how the discovery of the power within ourselves requires nothing more than a little guidance and a willingness to see.





Praise and Reviews
"Sarvananda Bluestone in one compelling excursus sweeps out the New Age fundamentalist fallacy that all our oracles need be Chinese or Gypsy. Rather he shows us, with a refreshing wisdom, how to let nature and the raw material of our experience be our projecting screen for the wisdom faculty of the soul. How to Read Signs and Omens in Everyday Life should be required reading for Divination 101!"
