Stichomancy

Never heard of it?  It's fun!  Here's how you can do it yourself.

Stichomancy is an ancient art of divination, maybe 3,000 years old or more.  It is done by randomly selecting a book and flipping it open to a random page and reading a random passage and applying it to the situation that is on your mind.  You can even do it for a "daily guidance" type of reading.

Any book at all will do!  You'll be surprised at what insights can be gained by this random act of analysis.

Many people do this using The Bible, in that case it is usually referred to as Bibliomancy.  I do this from time to time when in need of strictly spiritual guidance.

Try it yourself and see!
