So, as the title states, I’m going through EA’s Divination Course, I’m starting from the bottom and pathworking through, taking my time. Because I want to grow my divination skills. I want to be able to enter a trance and answer any question that I may have, I don’t want to be confined to reading Tarot my entire life, I want to BECOME the Tarot, and Runes, and the I Ching.
So, I rebought the course and today is my first day of practical activity. First was using a spirit board (I know EA calls it a Ouija board, but Ouija is just a brand, spirit board is what it’s actually called it’s like when people call adhesive bandages ‘band-aids’) and today was my first time. My plan is to workwith the spirit board for seven days.
I watched the bit of the course that talked about how to make a board, he recommended wood, but I just used cardboard as I don’t plan on staying with any of the ideometric forms of divination. And so, I made my board and in between the YES and NO, EA encouraged us to use whichever symbols that are meaningful to me, and so I put the Chi-Rho in an attempt to make sure that I wouldn’t accidentally contact a spirit that would kill my Mom.
Anyways, so finish my board and I’m satisfied with it, and I get into the sync. And I start with a question, “Are there any Spirits here?” And I wait to feel a pull like EA said. I feel a faint draw to YES.
“What is your name?”
I feel my improvised planchette faintly move, “R O G E R”
“Roger, are you a human spirit?”
Still very faint, “YES.”
I decide to kind of start again. I shake myself out of the sync and put myself back in. Then I put my hands directly over the board and declare, “I open this spirit board as a portal between worlds, I declare this board open.” I feel energy leave my hands as I say it, then I do the same with the planchette, “I open this planchette to be a channel between minds, that it may guide me right, I declare this planchette open.”
Then, I get back, “Roger, are you still here?”
The pull is much more noticeable now. “YES”
“Roger, how did you die?”
“U Y I N G”
At this answer, I was skeptical, I didn’t think that it was a real word, so I looked it up on Google, and apparently it’s a popular last name.
“Were you murdered?”
“Did you die in China?”
This went on for quite a while until I finally got the right answer.
“Did you die in Great Britain?”
“When did you die?”
“2 0 0 7”
“Was Uying a man?”
“What was your job?”
“S H O P K E E P”
“Why did Mr. Uying kill you?”
“C H E A T”
“Did you cheat him?”
“We can’t all be saints, so being in the afterlife is there a heaven, purgatory, or hell?”
“Do you have something to tell me that will further my development and ascension?”
“C A K U”
It was intuited to me that it was meant to read ‘c Aku’ like see Aku. Again, I was skeptical, aku wasn’t a thing, but I looked it up on Google. And, I was led to this poem, which deeply struck me.
Aku by Chairil Anwar (1943)
If my time has come
I don’t want anyone to beg
Not even you
I don’t need that sniveling!
I’m but a wild animal
Exiled even from his own group
Even if bullets pierce my skin
I will still enrage and attack
Wounds and poison I’ll take running
Until the pain leaves
And I will care even less
I want to live a thousand more years
This deeply spoke to me, and I was amazed.
“Did you like poetry?”
I spent a bit expressing my gratitude at this experience and to Roger for sharing this poem with me that I would likely have never found. Then we said goodbye.
All in all, this was above and beyond my expectations, this is the first time that I’ve ever learned about things that I was not aware of in a divination. Even my visions of Jesus have never said anything that I didn’t already know.
