Dictiomancy is a form of divination by using a dictionary.The most common way to use this form of divination is to ask a question, or pose a situation or scenario, and then open the dictionary at random. The word on which one’s finger rests will have special applicability to the question posed.
This can also be done in a more definitive way by dividing your situation into three sections:
Or alternatively, you can ask questions such as:
- How did this happen?
- Why did this happen?
- What can I do about it?
- Where should I look for answers?
As with any form of divination, it is important to get centered and focused before asking the question. Be specific. Also, I would recommend writing the question down. This is very helpful, particularly when the answers given require some thought in order to figure them out.
If the word you receive makes no sense at all to you, try separating out the letters and making an anagram.
