How to Use a Divination Game as an Intuition Tool
As I was learning to tune-in to my intuition, I often used divination tools such as tarot, or a pendulum as a way to help me get out of the over-thinking loop.
What happened in the process of using these Divination tools was a totally unexpected and important discovery.

When I first started trying to tune-in to my intuition I would often get into a mental spin and stuck in my head. All that over-thinking left me frustrated and even less able to make choices or know what I wanted. Self-doubt would creep in and make it even harder to discern between the inner-critic and a message from my intuition.
The Answer, is More than the Answer
I eventually realized that I was connecting with my intuition just before and just after I asked a question. I noticed that I’d have a strong preference for what I wanted the answer to be and was happy and relieved when I got an answer that supported that preference and I was disappointed when it didn’t. I also observed that when I was disappointed in the answer, I would start asking more oracles or questions to get the answer that I wanted and that would create another cycle of over-thinking, worry, and doubt.
In the simplest of ways, noticing what my preferred response was and my reaction to the divined answer informed me about what I wanted and where to start exploring next. In some cases I discovered my relief was because I wanted an excuse not to do something. When I looked at that further, I sometimes found I wanted that excuse because I was afraid to try something and fail. This process can be a launching point to further explore what your intuition may be telling you.

Connect with your intuition through exploring these questions.
Before you ask your question, consider the following:
- Do you have a preferred answer for your question?
- Do you know why you do or don’t have a preferred answer?
- Do you feel you know what the answer will be? Why?
- What will you do if you get the answer that you want?
- What will you do if you don’t get the answer want?
- Are you avoiding making a choice because you have fear or doubt?
- Are you using the answer to give yourself permission or to avoid action?
- What would you do if you didn’t get an answer?
