Hey! Bibliomancy hasn't ever been something I've done, because I don't know if I want to reserve that kind of divination to just one or two books I really like, or if I should incorporate different books for different types of sessions. How did you decide to use your bible instead of other books? ❤️
Well, bibliomancy is divination with the use of a bible (or other such holy books). Stichomancy is divination with the use of any old book, particularly one chosen at random.
I know a lot of people tend to refer to stichomancy as bibliomancy, and I suppose it’s one of those words that’s misused so often it might as well become the correct use, lol.
And I don’t mean that at all to come off rude to you! I was using all kinds of books for divination and referring to the act as ‘bibliomancy’ for years before I realised what it actually meant.
But yeah, just use the word, everyone else does. :p
And I think having a book set aside specifically for divination is a really cool idea, as is having different books for different situations. There are loads of books comprised of meaningful quotes that could be used; my mum had a book of spiritual quotes that was compiled specifically for the act of divination.
If there is any one book that is particularly meaningful to you – that speaks of your worldview or your spirituality – you’d do well to use that, as you’ll find whatever it tells you will already agree with your specific ideals.
Hope this helps x
