How to Tell Your Own Fortune

Mar 14, 2008
Who wouldn't want to know what lies in the future? By nature man worries about the future and what could become of him. It is therefore not surprising to see that all kinds of fortune-telling services has been in existence for as long as man can remember and for a business to exist for as long as it has, there must be some good level of profitability in it.

Now while many will claim that the methods at divination (which is what fortune-telling is also called) serve merely as guides to one's actions, it cannot be helped to point out that the matter becomes a case of chicken-and-the-egg. Did the prediction come as a guide based on one's previous actions? Or did the outcome occur as such because the predictions have influenced the person's actions to become so?

For the sake of this article, below are some of the methods by which one can supposedly tell their fortunes.

Clairvoyance literally means having "clear sight", a special kind of sight that allows one to see into the future be this in a teacup, coffee mug or a crystal ball. It is supposed to allow the practitioner to see beyond physical sight and discern future events. Those that possess clairvoyance are said to be able to imagine an object and experience all other senses brought about by that imagined object. For example, a clairvoyant should be able to smell an orange even by just imagining it being cut in half. This skill at a more advanced level is supposed to allow one to see into the future.

Psychic Powers
Psychic powers are said to be skills in being able to discern things you cannot see with your physical eyes and that involves the future as well. The practice of this skill usually comes in sensing a drawing or figure that they cannot see. Their objective is to "sense" the figure's shape. As the skill becomes developed, the person should be able to sense events happening in the future.

Telepathy, also known as thought transference, is the communication between minds using means other than physical. Again, the ability, when developed, should be able to allow the practitioner to see upcoming events by some means through this skill.
An example of telepathy practiced is being able to match two cards of the same number and color. One person draws a card and the practitioner should be able to match that card by tapping into the other person's mind and consciousness.

Psychometry is the method of divination of facts about a person and his future through the examination of his or her possessions or parts of the body. Such common items used are articles of jewelry (such as ring or watch) or long-treasured items (like a handkerchief or purse). The skill should be able to discern feelings or details from a person's past, present, or future. The idea is that the subject's energy, called an aura, has been absorbed by the item and that aura is the basis to make a prediction, in as immediate as five minutes.

Other items and methods used in psychometry are by placing a letter or card written by the subject to the practitioner's forehead. The same transference of aura is used as the basis to detect the subject's mood, character surroundings and even upcoming events that may happen to them.

Despite its popularity, divination is resisted by those who see such practices as hokum. And the opinion is not exclusive to one particular race, religion or organization.
On the other hand, those who practice these methods claim that the insights brought about by these predictions or guesses are simply guides to a person's dealings and should not be taken as a definitive course of action.

That said, by whatever method of choice you use to calculate the likely chances of future events, whether they are clairvoyance or stock market trends, the future remains as volatile as ever. One can only be too prudent and ready for what may come. And in the end, it may be all that one can do and the rest, as they say, is all up in the air.
