If you want to be able to see and tap the true voice of the divine, you must be able to be objective and slightly detached from your feelings, beliefs, cultural preferences, desires, personal opinions, politics, and dogma. You must be able to see multiple facets simultaneously without pushing or resisting. You must be able to find some inner peace because an agitated mind cannot sustain infinite knowing. You must be able to differentiate between the voice of your personality and the voice of your divinity. Without being able to do that, everything that comes to or through you or any human is filtered and thus contaminated and distortrd. Its like pure water being forced through a dirty cracked glass.
This verifies the bone system of Africa is the foundation of mathematics as a 20,000 year old bone was found with line markings that include complex calculations. This is at least 15000 years before the pyramids in Egypt were built. The bone divination system does indeed include calculations to infinity.
The system actually calculates based on 4... It starts with the same basis as Obi divination. The 4 bones are calculated into 16 kata or principles.. As that system is mastered they add a bone.. then 9 bones are used then 25, then 100.. and so on. They system of counting is based on how those calculations are done.
If you want to understand your religion... Any religion ancient, modern, or conventional... Learn astrology... It is the key to understanding it all. All of the scriptures and oracles are based on the astrological codes. The ancients were able to pass down those codes through myths and stories that we understand as the scriptures and and symbols. They did so to hide them in plain sight so that future generations would be able to decipher them when they were ready. These keys contain all history as well as the keys for the souls evolution. This is the time of the awakening.. Those who have eyes will see and all "secrets" revealed. But those who refuse to see what is plainly before them and would rather close their eyes because it counters what they thought or believed will continue to be lost in a sea of fear and confusion.
We can only experience God/dess according to our own level of consciousness. You can't be shown what you refuse to see. If you only hold on to your human identity riddled in fear , false judgments and flaws, you will never realize your true identity.. That part that transcends flesh, bones, and matter. The part that through reincarnation takes on identities and lifetimes but is greater than any lifetime identity.
The only thing the entire planet has in common is the universe we live in and the heavenly bodies we see in the sky. As the stars appeared to move and change, those on earth and nature experienced those changes too. They became our cultural myths and stories that were wrapped around greater universal truths. We dressed them up to be like people so that we as humans could better relate. They became our divinities. Because what is outside is also inside we experience them in varying degrees of consciousness. We understand them within the culture we live in. Their natures are our nature.. And it is mirrored throughout the entire universe.
Bone divination is the oldest form of divination known to humanity. The use of bone oracles have been documented on the caves walls in Africa as long ago as 30,000 years. The power in the method has survived through even the harshest trialsincluding the slave trade of North America. It holds the distinction of being the only method of divination that survived all the way to the United States and stayed in popular use, the second being cowries which made it to Central America. There is documentation of archaeologist discovering deer ankle and chicken bones along with, cowrie shells, wooden buttons, unbroken eggs and beads underneath the floors of cabins and the main house indicating that they were still practicing their ancient African traditions. That these common fragments were found from South Carolina to Missouri demonstrates the scope in which it was still practiced.
The organic nature of the system allows for it to be as comprehensive or as limited as the user's skill allows. Some systems have as few as 4 bones while other systems may have up to a hundred. While the method consist fundamentally of bones, it actually can encompass the use of a variety of natural and artificial objects as inspired by the diviner. The system itself presents a full cosmology and metaphor of the universe with infinite possibilities of answers as it expands. Pictured here is a bone mandala from my bone divination system.

One of the things that fascinates me is how information was kept and maintained through thousands of years without being written down. The oral tradition is central to all indigenous societies. Through this tradition, thousands of years of information has been retained about ancient cultures, psychology, mathematics, science, history, etc. This was done through the use of the oracles and indigenous divination systems.
The oracles contain codified and mathematical information that express every aspect of the universe and by extension human life. They expressed the divine order of the universe itself. Therefore every event or occurrence personal or community wide can be expressed through these oracles. When we study the I Ching Oracle, we find different versions reflecting different periods of history. The oracles contain images and stories from that period. In that way the story and history become metaphors for interpretations for years to come... even thousands.
The Ifa / Afa/ Fa, Hakata, and other 4 tablet bone oracles of Africa do the same. Each culture may use the same core principles of 16 signs while simultaneously maintaining a separate identity through its own cultural stories, ancestors, history, and geology within the context of the oracle. Remembering the stories and symbols are how the diviner not only learns the oracle, but also becomes a community griot who keeps the oral tradition of the community. Over time, new stories are added as significant events are recorded and placed within one of the signs and in this way, it becomes a living and evolving oracle.
Essentially, the oracles were the first internet. Aside from direct spiritual insperiences, the oracles was the preferred technology for acquiring information and validation. Far greater than just a prediction tool, the oracles are equivalent to an indigenous information superhighway.
In order for men to be reborn, spiritually, they have to go back through the womb.. as you came into this world.. you need to complete the circle and go back through the sacred feminine to be reborn. Spiritually and physically
Men developed a primal fear that going back into the sacred space of the womb, they would dissolve into nothing.
The male ego wants to be in control and fears losing himself completely if he loves a woman.
That primal fear comes from a less spiritually conscious male… when slipped backward into the past through guilt, remorse, anger, shame or jealousy or into the future out of fear .. They slipped out of infinite present. Then engaged in sacred love, and the woman’s power through the womb at the center of universe… spiritually can draw you into nothingness.
This is the physical way of accessing no thing ness. Ego dissolved and stream of consciousness.
If a man goes there unwittingly ,if not evolve, become terrorized by that experience.
Women must help the men to come back into their place as sacred warriors. This is why women muslt lead the way. Women experience the most profound physical connection to all that is.. through the womb.
Childbirth is evidence of this as psychic cords are created with that child.
Patriarchy will smash that which they are terrified of.
Its taken a long time to define what I do. I completely hate labels! They confine you and box you in to this and not that. I am more... this AND that... eclectic, universal, intuitive. I live by what the moment and situation demands. As a healer, I have been on this path for more than 20 years. It started with massage therapy, continued with aromatherapy and flower essences. As an CMA I worked in conventional medicine for a number of years. Later I trained as a homeopath and by extension naturopath and herbalist. I dabbled into midwifery .. but didn't like the hours! Im a dreamer and getting up at 2 in the morning to deliver babies didn't suit me. Eventually my path took me to private practice and teaching massage therapy and allied health.
Working with thousands of students and clients, I came to see that dis ease...primarily starts in the mind. Most indigenous methods agree that the spirit/ soul is directly tied to the physical and that it is what determines what will manifest physically. So if there is a physical condition or issue.. there is also a mental/ spiritual condition that laid the foundation for it.
Training in hypnotherapy gave further insights into the mind process and how we program ourselves with unconscious beliefs and thoughts that directly impact our physical well being. This blended well with homeopathy because homeopathy has always taking the mental state into account when determining the proper remedy.
Western science and Western herbalism has a type of one remedy fits all approach to addressing things. It is a kind of hit or miss approach because they are not really taking the person's physical and emotional constitution into consideration in relation to the effects of the remedy. You can address the heart physically, but you can't address the capacity for love which is often related to heart issues with the same approach.
Traditional healing suits me for these reasons. Traditional Healing incorporates the entire person into the healing treatment. Rather than using one size fit all standards for health and methods, traditional healing is more interested in the person and their unique constitution. Determining the approach to healing this way may involve herbs, homeopathy, meditations, therapeutic ritual, counseling, life coaching, or other therapy. Not to replace conventional care, traditional healing compliments the whole person, but starts with the spiritual as the root and extends to the physical rather than the other way around.
The earliest dream I remember had to do with bones. I must have been about 5 or so because my baby teeth had begun to come out. As was the tradition in my house, if I placed that tooth under my pillow, I would get some money in its place in the morning. What stands out to me is that, in the dream, I was in the bathtub and my tooth came out. I thought to myself that I would put the tooth aside so that I could get some money later. When I looked over the side of the tube where I placed it, there was a pile of bones placed on to a purple rug in its place... .. That is all I remember about that dream... but it is also the one that started me on my quest to learn how to read the bones years later. I guess it was in my bones to start.
I picked it up intuitively mostly. After learning numerous other divination systems and studying cosmology and metaphysics, I finally had a working understanding of divination system development. I began to collect my bones, stones, and shells, and other items to begin my set. As it happens, I have a dear friend who is an Akan priest and over time I began refining my application of the bones through his instruction. We don't have the same method. Each reader has their own method and set as it is highly customized for the reader. Working with him, however, helped me to build confidence that I was moving in the right direction.
My method is based on African and South American styles. It is a living system and is not a fixed set of bones with the same meanings. It still evolves as I add new bones and take away others as intuited and as I meet other bone readers and explore each other's methods. After having explored other's methods, I now realize that my method I intuited is very similar to one of the most expansive ones used.. and that it is an advanced set that normally takes ten years or more to build over time. ]Mine took 3 years to initially develop. I guess I just jumped into the deep end and learned to swim.
Reading bones allows me to get a glimpse into the client's life by casting a picture through the metaphor of the bones onto the casting mat. I have several casting mats as each addresses the reading from a different approach. A general reading may look at your overall situation, love, relationships, finances, job, family, home, health, friends, subconscious, blocks, keys for success, spiritual and heavenly forces, forces of nature, and advice. Readings can be 20 minutes up to and hour or so depending on the client and the situation explored. I may also combine other methods for additional clarity such as the I Ching, Tarot, Astrology, Numerology, etc. Some readings are recorded to review later and I try to take a picture of the layout for them as a meditation tool.
All in all Bone divination is a comprehensive method of situation analysis and problem solving that works so well it has survived 10,000 years or more of use. Frankly, It would have died out long ago if it did not have some merit for those that have relied on it for generations. I invite you to try it and see whats in the bones for you.
