Beginning Divination

Posted on January 28, 2017

There are many types of divination techniques practiced in this world. As BoyDiviner, I plan to cover the most common types and hopefully master them as I go along. As someone who has been learning and studying the craft for a while, I am often asked where to start.

I suggest creating your own “curriculum” – as someone who wants to learn metaphysics, you probably would have some arts that you are interested in. List these down and separate the topics out logically. I suggest that you stick with one or two (but well I certainly didn’t) considering your own passion in the subject and the accessibility of the craft. For example, divination using animal bones may be impractical to start with due to the availability of the bones themselves and educators in the craft.

To give a rough guide of how this is done, I am providing my own list of subjects that I am learning (in bold) and am aiming to learn in the years to come.
