It’s been a custom and tradition among metaphysical and magickal practitioners around the world to provide a Divinatory reading and prediction during the New Year. And this year, we do our part in taking a peak to what is going to happen this New Year of 2021. We did a Live Streaming video broadcast through our YouTube Channel and Facebook Page and here how it goes:
In this video we did two Divinatory procedure which is a uniquely Filipino. The First procedure we use is the Traditional Filipino Diagnostic and Divinatory method which is called as Tawas.
In this Paper you will notice an Image like a Hand Shadow Play. I remember doing this during my childhood days when the electricity is out at night. My Uncle Boy (my father’s younger brother) who is good at in doing this. Shadow play is a form of entertainment done during the night time. I also remember that it was also mentioned in the life of Jose Rizal that they used to play this game at night. As we connect this image to our present situation, all of us are all in the Shadow of uncertainty when will this Pandemic of Coronavirus will end. But as we move forward this New Year of 2021, we are blessed enough that the Pandemic have prepared us on how to live our life. So this image tell us to adopt the situation as we get used to it. We must learn how to enjoy life like how Common Filipino’s do even in the midst of calamity and crisis, and that is to be Happy. The second interpretation that i receive from this image is to reach out our hand in helping others. As our first image suggest as Hand Shadow Play, the help we could give out is through emotional and spiritual relief. People need to calm down and relax their mind so that their physical body will not be affected much with the effects of this pandemic bringing on to us. Giving them light in this darkest our of our age will give them a spark of life to move on forward. Aside from this messages, this image give us a quarterly forecast of events that is about to happen on 2021, and these are the following:
First Quarter of the Year (January- March) Image of Head and Ears of the Dog Shadow: News will spread that needs special attention. We need to listen with discernment as the news will spread out. It might be a special instructions, warning that comes from the Head (whether be it the head of the state or international leader that gain expertise on the Pandemic Crisis).
Second Quarter of the Year (April- June) Image of the Mouth of the Dog Shadow: Barking dog which signifies warning and instruction. Related to the first image of Ears and Head. This could also means argument and fighting. It warns us to be careful of getting bitten by a rabid dog that is mad enough. Whatever or whoever this rabid dog is, as the symbolism of the dog is about friendship, but the question here is who is that friend of the dog? who is the dog’s master?
Third Quarter of the Year (July- September) The leg part of the Dog Shadow, signifies standing up, walk or run forward or after. This might be a good thing for us as it may suggest that during this time of the year we will be able to rise up and walk again by ourselves. If this pertains to economy of the state, this mean that it is rising up again and recovery is on the process of making. Moving forward is the only thing that i see which is beneficial for everyone of us, as we could not turn back time but instead we move forward as we learn from the lessons of the past year.
Last Quarter of the Year (October- December) Wagging Tail of the Dog Shadow, this means a good thing as the dog gets excited and happy. The last quarter of the year will be a comfortable and rewarding moment that it gives out all the negative energies and welcomes good thing that the Dog will guard into safety again.
And the Second procedure that we made, Lakay Magbaya SiAd Tala draw his oracle and share the messages of the Diwata, Engkanto and Anito. And with his permission, i will repost here what he wrote in his blog.
We have done Divinatory reading using SiAd Tala Mystic Oracle last January 1 to welcome the new year and have inquired the General Vibration of the Year 2021, and the symbols we have drawn are the Baybayin:
As we have taught that SiAd Tala symbols are tools where our Divinities, Elementals and Ancestors communicate to us, and their message for us this year 2021 is this: “Maintaining our Positive Connection” not only to our loved ones but to the whole world.
Our Divinities, Elementals and Ancestors (DEA) encourage us to make our presence be felt by the other people, not just binding ourselves into our own comfort zones regardless of time and space. All of us feel loneliness and negativity but its energies can be broken down if we are together and not alone. We can use the existing tools and gadgets to reach out to one another and fill up with joy and happiness the loneliness that is enveloping us, and ofcourse to express our gratitude to one another. The sense of having someone besides you that you can rely upon is a very encouraging feeling that you can overcome all the obstacles and challenges that life is bringing upon us. It gives us courage and strength that we can do all things because we have someone that we could rely on. Our survival in life depends on the motivation that we receive from our special loved ones that we have. Through this we create harmony in our environment that benefits us all. The “Power of Touch” either physically or emotionally gives warmth to the heart that can move a soul to a changed life.
Our hands are the extension of our Heart; and our Heart is the bridge to our Mind which is the dwelling place of the Divine. As a living soul we have always to remember that we have our own ability to attract both negative and positive energies and so as we can make good or bad results to whatever actions we are doing in our life.
We are being reminded by our DEA to choose what is beneficial and that is good for all. No one wants to be lonely, but in our choice we also must consider if this can also make other people happy and not only to ourselves.
Remember our Soul has the ability to transform negative and destructive energies into positive ones that it becomes creative, so choose to Create rather than to destroy.
And that’s all for now, and may you always Be Blessed in Peace!
