Over the centuries, people have not abandoned their attempts to look into the past and predict the future. One is attracted by the eternal human curiosity, others - the desire to know what awaits him in the future. Be that as it may, the art of divination flourished from the time of the birth of mankind and developed with it. With the help of fortune telling, people tried to find out their own destiny, to predict various events and thus influence their future.
Mechanisms of divination are generally the same. According to many teachings, time is a kind of a certain segment of space along which you can move both into the past and into the future with certain skills. Modern science in principle confirms similar statements about the nature of the relativity of time. But from a scientific point of view, such movements will require huge energy costs and are fraught with unforeseeable consequences. In the past, with the help of divination, it is quite easy to penetrate, while in order to visit the future, it is necessary to have special skills and certain tools.
Ways of fortune telling are different, but the tools used for divination have not changed since ancient times, they regularly serve in our time. There are various types of fortune-telling cards: Tarot, Madame Lenorman and many others. Runes, pendulums, various magic mirrors, crystal balls and many other tools can be found in modern showrooms.
Ways of divination in ancient times
In ancient times, fortune telling was used on the insides of animals and even humans. For this, there were so-called augurs. They are by location, sight and other only to them known signs of internal organs, predicted the weather, events in the lives of people and even states. Usually, the insides of the sacrificial animal were used for this, but in especially important cases, when a lot depended on the correctness of the prediction, they could sacrifice, for example, a captive enemy or slave. Of course, in our time such techniques do not exist for a long time, today, at the time of divination, not such bloody methods are used.
Palmistry is an art that allows you to predict the future destiny of a person by reading information from lines on the palms of your hands. In the modern world, palmistry exists at the junctures of science and religion. To date, the scientific theory (biology) allows some possibility that the hands functionally have a very close relationship with the manifestations of the psyche and human brain activity. Proceeding from this given with the help of some observations, it is possible to find out the different traits of the character of any person. People literally from the very time of life in the caves were interested in the lines on their hands. According to the study of some theories, the emergence of this art occurred in the time of the oldest civilizations. More likely, this ancient technique originates in the East.
Old ways of guessing
In the old days, more often than not, various methods of divination for love were used. In those days, different ways of guessing were very popular among young girls, but they gave preference to those that were related to the affairs of the heart. They tried to find out the name of the suitor, the look, the place of his residence and everything that concerned the love topic. Fortune-telling girls tossed shoes (where the toe of the shoe shows, where the deceased lives), eavesdropped under the doors of the church (if you hear a wedding song, then this year you marry), jumped over the fire (if the flames do not touch the jumping, then promises to marry him) . Usually the girls guessed at Christmas and at Christmas.
Some ancient methods of divination are used by girls, and to this day: fortune telling on maps, on coffee grounds, casting wax and many others.
At all times there were magicians, sorcerers, fortune tellers, fortunetellers and clairvoyants, who were engaged in their work, so to speak, professionally. The tools used at the time of the fortune-telling sessions, in themselves, did not have any magical properties, they were used only as a conductor, allowing to reveal the abilities for clairvoyance with the help of visions, symbols, sounds, and so on.
