Divination is a very important magic tool for magical practitioners and can be done in a variety of ways. First, what exactly is divination? Divination is obtaining information by magical or psychic means that you cannot get through the physical senses of the body. By using divination, a practitioner is able to “check in” with the Universe before performing a spell, a voodoo type ritual, or other magical technique to make sure that what he or she is doing is in sync with Rules of the Road, the right procedure for what he or she wants to accomplish, in accordance with magical self-defense rules, and being carried out correctly each step of the way.

Divination in magical practice is used to direct our “fates”. That means that by using divination techniques we are able to discover the influences, energies and probability lines active in our lives. Having this information allows us to more accurately and knowingly exert control in our own lives. When delving into the future with divination there are two factors to understand:

1. The future is not set and can be changed any time before it happens.

2. Divination of future events are only the probabilities of what can happen based on assuming that current influences in our lives continue unchanged. Any change in the present will change the future.

If through divination you find a future event that you don’t like or don’t want, then you can find out what events lead up to it and change them. Making a small change in the present will lead to the future event being changed so that it either doesn’t happen or happens differently than what you found in your divination. In terms of doing spellwork or another type of magical procedure, divination allows you to check yourself and make sure you are heading in the right direction to achieve the results you desire. If your divination shows you are not going in the right direction, then you can simply adjust your plan.

Here’s an example of how divination can work in your life. Let’s say you are going to take a road trip across country. You use divination to see if there are any problems that might occur on the trip and see yourself involved in a car wreck. You can now do some additional divination techniques to gather information such as what other car is involved in the accident or where along the route the accident occurs. Then when it comes time for your trip you can stop before getting to that place in the trip and wait a while or pull off the road and wait until you see the other car pass you by. By making a small change in the present you can change the results in the future and the outcome of your trip.
