From the Oracle of Delphi, also known as The Pythia, (note word associations: The Pythia / Python / Snake Medicine/ Hidden Wisdom) to The Nechung Oracle (Oracle to the Dalai Lama), divination has always been a skill or gift of the "divine nation" (a nation of those connected to Source, God, angels, or some ethereal being) in order to navigate the murky waters of three-dimensional life where vision is not clear and true light is often hard to find.
Personally, I believe we were given divination as a gift to manage ourselves better amid the chaotic throng of collective free will.
Divination obviously does not and cannot take away free will - nor should it - but, if used in a predictive way, it allows one to see what is most likely to come about so it can be avoided or dealt with in an appropriate manner. "Appropriate" is up for interpretation due to that pesky free will - you can either deal with things in a manner that serves the highest good of all, or you can deal with things in a selfish, fearful, or angry way. Our free will is never arrested, and as a diviner, it's really not my job to tell you how to use free will - I just give you the info. I encourage the path of the highest good, though - this is the path that changes the whole world for the better and it would go against my own integrity not to encourage it.
Recently, I have truly rekindled my love of divination and my ability to "see", with a thorough reacquaintance of the Tarot and the creation of my own Lenormand deck which is proving so invaluable to me on a personal level that I have come to see it as a tool for 3D Life Management (something I sometimes suck at since I'm much more comfortable in the Otherworld than I am in this one). Lenormand is proving to be a confidence booster, an anxiety banisher, and an instrument that simply allows me to be "me" without guilt over all my capabilities. We are so often bullied into diminishing our value and strengths in this world. Lenormand says 'no' to that!
Of course, the above is how I, personally, choose to use divination in my own life - there are many ways to use it. Nowadays, Tarot can be "Tarot therapy". You can meditate with the cards, go on the shamanic journeys they offer, use them to invite Law of Attraction, use them for sorcery, ceremony, and summoning, converse with spirits in the form of mediumship, and so on. The list is endless. They are, after all, just the tool. The skill of using the tool is in you.
For me, divination offers direct access to Source/God/Spirit/angels for comfort, mediation, my vocation (in conjunction with the Otherworld), and life planning (this life and the next, as well as access to past lives). It also gives me access to various beings who need to communicate to various people here.
It's a joy and a pleasure to be an oracle and scribe; to be a communications coordinator (one of my previous job titles, ironically) for the divine. Communication and expression have always been my thing. Divination suits what I am, and what I do, even when I'm not divining.
I am currently experiencing a beautiful homecoming.

Thoughts, philosophies & musings
This is an evolving blog - this whole website is about our evolution. Please note that everything I write on here is for your inspiration; for you to resonate with any way you choose. Musings are also allowed to evolve over time, so if a something I write about now, might seem to contradict something I wrote two years ago (or in two years to come) know that it's not really a contradiction - they are simply evolving perspectives. Of course, I have my own beliefs about things, too - this blog sometimes explores beyond my own beliefs.
