Introduction

People have been telling fortunes since time began. You have the power within you to see your own future, or that of your friends, no matter what your age or circumstance.

The ancient art of divination is a vast subject, too

large to be covered in its entirety here. This little book shows you simply how to develop your psychic and clairvoyant abilities, and to invoke them to tell fortunes using every-day household items such as tea leaves or coffee grounds, a pack of playing cards, a pair of dice, a bowl of water or ice, candles or apples. Most likely you already have the ingredients at hand, and because

each method is easy to use, you can begin any time you like. Also included here are everyday omens and superstitions that have stood the test of time.

Once your mind is receptive to higher influences, you will

find there is far more to life than just what meets the eye. You've probably already had the experience of knowing who is on the telephone before you pick it up to answer. Or perhaps you have thought of someone and then heard from that person or bumped into them, or had a hunch or a feeling that something would happen. Your intuition is the compass that will always point you in the right direction. The door is already open; dare you step through?

TUNING YOUR MIND

Clairvoyance is special sight (literally, it means "clear

sight") that allows you to see the future in a crystal ball or a tea-cup. If you can think of a lemon, see its shape and color, cut it in half and smell its aroma in your mind, you have clairvoyant powers. If not, you can become clairvoyant by training your imagination to visualize an object or situation.

Psychics have the power to feel, such as divining by

psychometry (below). You can encourage your psychic powers in a number of ways, often with the help of a friend. The more often you try these methods, the more accurate your predictions will be.

PSYCHIC POWERS

Try sensing a drawing. Begin by holding out your left palm,

flat and face up. While you have your eyes closed, a friend should draw a shape in the air-either a heart shape, a square, a circle, a wavy line or a cross-about 30 mm above your palm. Your hallenge is to sense whi h shape they have drawn.

TELEPATHY

Telepathy is thought transference, or communication between minds using extrasensory means.

Take a deck of playing cards. Remove all the face cards so that you are left with numbers one to ten in each suit. Shuffle the remaining 40 cards (20 will be red and 20 black) and pass them to a friend.

The pair of you should then sit back to back. Ask your friend to remove the top card and telepathically convey to you the number on the card and the color of the card. The pair of you should continue until the pack has been exhausted. Again, the more often you try, the more accurate you will become.

PSYCHOMETRY

Psychometry is the divination of facts about a person via his or her possessions.

To intuit a friend's feelings or details from their past, present, or future, ask to hold an item of their jewelry, such as a watch or ring. Hold it with your eyes closed for a few moments. Because the item has absorbed your friend's aura-the distinctive energy emanating from their body-you should be able to make a prediction in only five minutes.

Another method is to hold to your forehead a letter or card

someone has sent. You will detect their mood, character and

surroundings in which the letter was written.

This was one of the best books I've read. This book got me into Tarot Reading and Fortune Telling. I'm 14 and already at least 20 people come up to me for advice.

I am thirteen and have been casting spells since I was eight.I love this book, and have memorized many of the methods in this book. It's very helpful and doesn't leave you confused with its clear instructions. I've read many other books like this, and they sucked in comparison to this one.

I got this book for what seems like a long time ago, but I still love every page. I'm really getting the hang of it and it's so much fun. My friends are impressed at how well the cartomancy works. I recommend it totally.

If you ever wanted to know what's in the future and you don't want to pay a psychic or tarot card reader you'll love this book. Not only does it give you a number of ways to do that but it shows you how to expand your psychic abilities as well. I love this book and Mrs.Kemp has changed my life, this book is easy to understand and fun to use.
