From Association of Independent Readers and Rootworkers
A dream, sign, or omen divination session is conducted differently than the typical card, palm, or psychic reading. Instead of the diviner telling you what they see, you must tell them what you saw. They will listen to your account of the dream you had, the sight you saw, or the unusual event that transpired to you, and then, just like Joseph before the Pharaoh or Daniel before Nebuchadnezzar, they will tell you what the dream or sign foretells for you.
Unusual dreams, sometimes so "real" that they cannot be distinguished from waking life, are often forerunners of things to come. Dreams of paralysis, visitations from the dead in dreams, hag-riding, and prophetic dreams that augur wealth, fame, or happiness in love all benefit from interpretation.
An experienced Southern-style spiritual counselor can do more than help you interpret your dreams and explain the meaning of unusual signs and omens you have seen: If you wish to undertake your own own study of dream interpretations, you can ask a hoodoo rootworker who prescribes spiritual supplies for clients to recommend a dream book to you to study.
Divining Signs and Omens from Nature
In days gone by, when humans lived in areas more closely connected to the natural world, there were special diviners whose job it was to interpret signs from nature. The patterns of the flights of birds, the sudden out-of-season blooming of a tree, an unexpected invasion of snails, mice, or snakes -- all of these carry information and significance to one who is gifted in natural divination lore.
Yet even those who dwell in the concrete-blocked urban environments where nature dares not enter in may see signs and omens of the natural world: stray dogs may howl around your door, a tree branch may fall and stab itself point down into your lawn, a flock of birds may take up sudden residence in your back yard, and just as quickly vanish.
In cases like these, a gifted diviner of the natural world can tell you much that you may wish to know. Do owls portend the same consequences as ravens? Is an invasion of black ants something to be worried about, or is it harmless and benign? What does it mean when the sun shines through at the same time that rain is falling?
If nature's little calling cards are visible to you, but you cannot read them, you may wish to schedule an appointment with a natural diviner who can interpret for you the meanings of these spiritual signs.
Divining Signs and Omens from Daily Life
Most of us know the common meanings assigned to events like a black cat crossing our trail, or someone sweeping our feet with a broom, but sometimes the signs are very unusual, and only a gifted reader can help us pierce the veil.
Perhaps as you went about your normal daily business, you found four different, apparently discarded white gloves at widely separated places. Perhaps while driving, you passed three cars in a row whose license plates ended in the number 23. Perhaps a drunken man accosted you in the grocery store and called you by the name of your long-dead mother -- a name no one has spoken to you in fifteen years.
It is at times like this, when you know that Spirit is sending a message, but you simply cannot understand it, that you may call upon a diviner of omens to tell you the message that you were meant to hear.
