Talking Trees Divination
At the sacred grove of Dodona dedicated to the great god Zeus, ancient Greeks would practice a form of wind scrying. This technique involves listening to the voice of wind as it moves through the branches of the trees. The wind talks in a language that is all its own, and in order to understand it, you have to listen carefully and become One with the spirit of Wind. When you do this, you will begin to understand what the wind is saying to you.
To perform this divination, you’ll need a quiet place where you can hear the wind moving through the trees. First write down in our journal the question or problem you want to talk about tonight with the wind.
At dusk, go outside and find a quiet place among the trees. If you can’t hear the wind, hang wind chimes or other things from the branches so you can hear it. (Or you may need to go out just after 2:00 a.m. when the wind picks up just before dawn.)
Call to the wind three times:Divine spirits and elemental beings Come let your voices sing.
Repeat your question or problem aloud three times so the wind can hear it. Now, sit down and begin merging with the sound of the wind. Become One with the Air element and as you do, understand the language of the wind. Listen as it speaks to your spirit, telling you the answer to your problems. Write down the messages you receive from the wind.
