Divination is an effective tool for tackling the crisis of the human psyche in modern time. Divination clarifies the meaning of the soul’s quest and shed light to the obstacles to overcome on the way to successful living. In other word, divination does not just tell you what is going on in your life; it tells you what you need to do in order to flow into your gifts and fulfill your purpose. Divination provide a positive spin on human challenges by emphasizing gifts and purpose.
