PRAISE FOR DIVINATION “Read this book – Divination will help you gain valuable insight into the hidden realms. As you claim the power of the archetypes, you can enjoy a more meaningful life.”

“When reason and commonsense are insufficient guides to action, and faith tells us how to act but not where or when, where can a person turn? Divination by Paul O’Brien is an inspiring call for the use of modern versions of ancient divination systems. When logic fails, discover how to make yourself think outside the box. This book is full of ideas to challenge you and take you beyond all assumptions about what divination is to what it CAN BE—a set of spiritual power tools, available any time, day or night, to help you function more effectively within a constantly changing world. I highly recommend this well-written and warmly engaging book for answering all your questions about whether divination has anything to offer you—and the answer is it does!”
