My life, from birth to 18 years old, revolved around Southern Baptist Theology. After 18, which was a time when I felt like I finally had the right to chose and think for my self - spiritually speaking - I began to walk a different path with God. It has been a struggle (which I still deal with), as I continuously discover that the religious foundations that were so diligently taught to me are, well.. not true. Trying to tear down the wall of blame I have built up around those in my life that tried to force religion on me has been a hurtful, revealing, yet healing journey. When describing these times, my experience, and the teachings still being employed within those dark places, I often use the term Terrorist for Jesus. With the frequency that I use this term, I feel it deserves a proper introduction and explanation..
Cleromancy is a form of divination by reading & interpreting the arrangement, shapes formed, & placement of randomly fallen or tossed objects. Believed to reveal the will of God.
Different objects can be used such as: runes, bones, shells, stones, dice, dominoes, etc. Often times the items used are all different, and are tossed together. They are inscribed with markings, numbers, or colors - or left in their natural state. Usually carried in a sacred manner, in a cloth, bowl, or basket, sense they are believed to be a direct line of communication with Spirit. When read they are tossed onto an animal hide, a special mat, or into a circle drawn on the ground.
