WHAT IS AN "ASK GENN" CRYSTAL READING?

An "Ask Genn" Crystal Reading is a personal reading from the Crystal People, like a tarot reading via living crystal.

Ask Genn crystal readingIn an "Ask Genn" crystal reading, rather than using a tarot deck to determine the energies presented for your reading, I use the crystal chosen for you and read its unique characteristics.

Seeing order in randomly generated patterns is the essence of fortune telling and interpretation of omens. Hundreds of years ago, people might expect to go outside and see many different species of birds routinely as part of their everyday experience. Thus, reading the first type of bird one sees after asking a question was something people could reasonably expect to do as part of their normal lives, because seeing random birds was part of people's normal lives. My everyday experience includes the internet. I see random stuff on my Facebook feed and on the day's Google Doodle as I'm sipping my morning coffee. 

Random stuff is exactly what's traditionally used for fortune telling and omens. Rune casting interprets the way lots fall on a cloth. The rune Perthro, the rune of destiny or wyrd, is shaped like a dice cup, which refers to rolling dice to read a fortune. The heathen art of reading bird omens derives a positive or negative answer from whether one sees a white bird or a black bird first. (Black is the good color, because Odin's ravens are black.) In other traditions, tea leaves make patterns in a cup, and a deck of cards has a traditional significance for each card in Tarot and in cartomancy.

My new Magic of Flowers Oracle deck is here and it's AWESOME! I've had a number of questions about how to use it, and while I outline it in the companion book, I thought I'd do this 2-minute tutorial to get you started on doing readings for yourself and others. As you'll see, it's really easy. 

Oh, and if you'd like to enter to win a deck, I'm giving away three! Check out the contest here
