The Ancient Psychic Art of Lecanomancy Divination
Lecanomancy is a form of divination that incorporates the study of sounds, shapes, or ripples from dropping objects into water. The term Lecanomancy has its roots in the Greek language and translates to “dish.Gems and stones are important part of this practice as well as oil. The process of Lecanomancy includes dropping items such as stones or pebbles into water. The sounds or patterns made within the water are then studied in order to receive divine or psychic messages. Many practioners will use oils. When poured into water, their shapes are then used to gain prophetic information. Lecanomancers look at water for long periods in order to help them enter a self-hypnotic state. As a consequence, a form of psychic divination often occurs.
Lecanomancy is a form of Hydromancy. Hydromancy is another divination method that involves staring into a water's surface, and this practice has been historically used for thousands of years. The goal is to receive messages or visions from the water’s surface. Water is considered to be a symbolic metaphor for creation and the unconscious. It has also been known as Hall of Records, the Akashic Records or the Grid Harmonics.
Historically, a person would gaze into a sacred pool of water for hours. Sometimes a large urn of water would be used. This is a divination practice that took a great deal of focus and patience. Many practioners believed and continue to believe that the future could be revealed in the water’s surface.
In ancient times, divination or psychic practioners would spend times near moving bodies of water. The goal was to enter a relaxed state of mind. When they felt as though they were connected to a different dimension or had entered a meditational state, they would then gaze into the water and study its flow and the patterns it made These patterns or messages were then interpreted. In fact, many ancients believed that spirit guides lived with the water itself. The patterns where thought to be a form of communication. For example, the ancient Greeks believed the spirit of nature lived in fresh water bodies.Hydromancy was considered to be a means to communicate with certain gods or spirits.
One well-known person who practiced Hyromancy was Nostradamus. He saw messages and made predictions of the future. He recorded what he saw along with any psychic messages he heard. At times, his visions could be amazingly accurate. However, many of them lacked detail and were revealed as puzzles. Even today, we are still amazed at Nostradamus’s psychic predictions and continue to try and interpret his messages.
