The Art of Cowrie Shell Divination
These are the prized treasures of our ancestors, and we can still benefit from them today.
In spiritual practices, cowrie shells are often used as currency, used as offerings to the Orishas, and in rituals of protection.
Cowrie shells are also used in divination, as the patterns and arrangements of shells are believed to reveal messages and guidance from the Orishas and other spiritual entities. They can be cast like bones or shells, or they can be used in other forms of divination such as cowrie reading.
Cowrie shells are believed to have the power to ward off evil spirits and negative energy, so they are often used to create amulets, talismans, and other forms of spiritual protection. They are also used to decorate altars, clothing, and other objects that are used in rituals and ceremonies.
Cowrie shells are also commonly used to decorate altars, homes, and other sacred spaces, as they are believed to bring good luck, prosperity, and protection. They are also used in ceremonies of purification and initiation, and also as an adornment in traditional dances and other cultural events.
