THE POWER OF BIBLIOMANCY!
Bibliomancy, google tells us, is the practice of foretelling the future by interpreting a randomly chosen passage from a book, especially the Bible.
According to the OED the word bibliomancy means “divination by books, or by verses of the Bible” and was first recorded in 1753. Maybe it is something you have already done in the past – I remember there was a glut of specially designed Bibliomancy books in New Age sections of bookshops at one stage, but that seems to have lessened these days. So the idea might be new to some of you.
I have used it on and off for a number of years and until recently I received very mixed and muddled results – most answers I received with this method using the Bible, for instance, were 99% nonsense.
I think the main issue I was having was that I was using the wrong books. Once I found the book, the method became a lot more satisfying.
HOW DO YOU DO IT?
- Take a book in your hands.
- Close you eyes and think of your question
- Open the book in a random section.
- In your mind choose the left or right page.
- Run your finger along the page until you feel that you should stop.
- Open your eyes and get your “answer” from the line your finger is under.
Should I mention the name of the Book I use in the newsletter?
Why do you ask?
Well, I am just concerned that it might in some way lessen the power of using the book for myself.
Audiences know what to expect, and that is all they are prepared to believe in.
So what you are saying is that If I believe it will lessen the power it will – otherwise it won’t?
Like I said, this book is a bit of a smart arse. But it makes the experience more fun and enjoyable for me. So try it yourself and see what you come up with. Use a number of different books until you hit upon the perfect personality match. But remember, while it can be a bit of fun, you can get some great results using this method.
The answers can be truly surprisingly insightful and helpful.
