Lithomancy

So far this year has been super eventful, both on the personal front but also in my craft. My last blog was about a surprising new direction I was put in as a result of a new experiment, and that is something that continues to unfold in between everything else.

 

and then yesterday I was pointed toward something else that I had not given any thought to until now. I was walking in the hills with my SO and collecting small stones (both activities are common for me). The stones that were standing out to me yesterday were smallish, oval and round, clear to white and the sun could shine through them. Quartz, nothing special, aside from the size and shape which stood out against the rough and irregular majority of stones. I had a small handful of these stones and was trying to remember the name of certain rock type when I got a flash in my mind of me throwing them out over a board with a circle on it, the circle was divided up and had symbols in each space and around the border. That was it. I continued walking and collecting stones and thinking about that for a ways. Obviously it was some kind of divination but I didnt have the name for it until I was able to look it up at home. The internet is an amazing tool.

 

I've never been good at or all that interested in divination. Recently I've finally gotten curious about tarot, since it doesnt seem so overwhelming to learn at this point now that I have a more solid foundation to work with, but I have never thought of starting with anything but tarot or pendulums due to my inexperience in this area. Now it seems that lithomancy is probably something I need to start thinking about and practicing. So here is this blog, its exciting to me that lately i feel more "guided" along, maybe thats not right though and I'm just getting better at listening to myself? I dont know, but its really cool and I feel a sense of momentum in general.

 

As always, I am open to any advise/suggestions/experiences/questions on the topic. Its why I am here :smile:. I'll post in the comments with updates about this as I did with the last blog. I like to keep it together that way for my own reference. Thanks for reading

Oh the ideas!! Some round stones, almost surely using family teeth(an evelope of collections made by the "tooth fairy" over several years given to me by one of my grandmas to continue adding to), maybe bits of important jewelry. Crushed egg shell chart and sigils? Chalk? A painted board (ooooo, but painted with what)? I keep coming back to procrastinate other responsibilities, but really I cant focus because it keeps popping back into my head. End of semester restlessness.

 

Different ideas for different sorts of questions, different materials. Why have I never thought about doing this before? It seems so funny that I havent and have somehow managaed to glaze right over a topic that apparently resonates with me.

It seems you were shown a direction for your path and took note, it took me many years to actually listen to my instincts like that but once I did things began to make more sense.  Good luck with it!
