What form of divination do you do? I practice cartomancy (playing card divination), tarot, natal chart readings, palmistry, face reading (I'm still a bit rusty), graphology/handwriting analysis, astrology as a whole, dream interpretation annnnnnnd I think that's it. What's the question you're most asked? (Love readings, jobs, random crap), how do you deal with the annoying ones or naysayers and how do you feel about doing it for money? Just trying to stir some life in here ^.^
Lol. Bumping this old post 'cause I'm late to the party.
I used to do quite a bit of palmistry but, I'm really, really rusty now. Now I do primarily tarot and tasseomancy (reading tea-leaves).
I never do divination or anything else of a magic nature for anyone anymore. Too many naysayers, had some things go REALLY bad (pro tip: finish anything you start), and too many people be very unappreciative of what I tell them.
Tarot, Oracle, Bibliomancy, Runes, Tasseomancy, Scrying and I-Ching just to name a few. hehe!
What's bibliomancy and Tasseomancy? @calaellen

Astrology, tarot, and methods that I have found success with that I have no name for; not that those forms have no name. Maybe someone could tell me. I have had success with a form similar to pendulum and/or maybe I-Ching. I assigned a meaning to each side of a coin-like charm that hangs from a long silver chain. I hold then release the charms and allow them to swing/turn until it balances and shows a particular face. I derive an answer based on what I have assigned to the charm and the question asked.
(It's so nice not running under the Black Witch name for once)
When it comes to finding your true spiritual nature, internal conflict is to be had. It is good to be a skeptic, skeptism is healthy but just like anything, too much of it can be very bad for you. It's not necessary to be part of a religion of any sort to be spiritual, just believe. Hoodoo and voodoo are really interesting sections of Paganism with plenty of history, plus there are a few practitioners here in this group, just ask.
As for the "God Gene", I always take science with a bit of salt when it discusses spirituality because sometimes science has a very hard time understanding that you can't put every little thing in a microscope. Some things are in the body, some things are in the mind. While the body and the mind are indeed interconnected, I believe a lot of spiritual experences are psychosomatic where the body is responding to what the mind feels rather than the other way around. It would be interesting however to explore the God Gene but I don't think there would be a cut and dry method to determine who is likelier to become a bitter atheist with no regard for religion or spirituality whatsoever or who will become a rabid practitioner of their faith, apt to bulldoze anything different strictly from their genetic makeup.
