Ainsley let out a breath as stood there wondering if these level five students were ready for such a task. Set before the room on a table were candles, four of them each of a different color along with some stones. .Also on the board was a explanation of the new lesson.
Aspidomancy is a shamanic form of trance divination practiced primarily by Aboriginal healers. It is used to communicate with spirits to obtain guidance and instructions. A shield is placed on the ground. The diviner sits on the shield, casts a circle or has helpers construct a stone circle, which is blessed . Four fires are burned in the cardinal directions outside the circle. The diviner recites vocable chants until a trance state is achieved.
