Divination

There are many forms... probably way more than I even know of yet.
-- Do you use any form? If so, which do you use, and which do you prefer (if you use more than one form)?
-- Who/What do you get your answers and guidance from? Angels? Ancestors? Your Higher Self? Universal Spirit? etc
-- What kinds of limitations are there in divination? Do these hinder or help you on your spiritual journey?

Everyone is born with a unique gift. The problem, or rather lack of motivation, lies in the fact that ‘divination’ in today’s world is considered a fraud, or a fictional class in Harry Potter. Even just talking about divination conjures up ideas of the bug-eyed Professor Trelawney telling Harry he’s going to drop dead.
People think that the tarot reader is the old woman who scams you for money. People think that Ouija boards are for teenage séances. People think pendulums are made with wedding rings and held over pregnant ladies bellies. Though divination is commonly considered as a “future telling” practise, it can be a lot more than that. You can use it for dream interpretation, or finding lost objects.
But enough about the ignorance of society. Onto the prompt!

I use tarot pretty much predominantly. I’ve always like tarot, and even though I suck at memorizing things, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be “weaned” off the books. Of the few really hard-core readings I’ve done, I’ve made out pretty well, you know. I read a small definition in the book, and then the cards start to speak to me. I have a pendulum that spoke to me when I saw it, but I don’t use it much. I prefer the Tarot.

You hold the answers deep within your own mind. Consciously, you've forgotten it. That's the way the human mind works. Whenever something is too unpleasant, to shameful for us to entertain, we reject it. We erase it from our memories. But the imprint is always there.—Evanescence
I think that we hold the answers within our minds, and the cards bring the answer to the forefront. The cards speak to us, and we remember answer. Anyone who knows me knows I suck at rambling about things I don’t know, but if you’ve heard me do a tarot reading, I ramble like there is no tomorrow.
This doesn’t mean that spirits or deities can’t or won’t contact you through the cards, if you ask them.

If you don’t believe in yourself, then divination is never going to work.
