The art of reading omens is often considered the domain of shamans and fortune tellers. But the ancient science of Ayurveda teaches that understanding omens is possible for everyone; it simply requires that we open our heart and mind to the non-verbal communication from nature that has existed since humans evolved. In a recent class with the great Ayurvedic teacher, doctor and author Robert Svoboda, he explained how to perceive, without our externalized senses, the shadow cast by a coming event before its arrival.
The Beginning Foretells The Future
In Ayurvedic astrology, the astrologer looks at a person's natal (birth) chart to forecast tendencies and occurrences during their life. In the same way, it is important to pay attention to what happens at the beginning of an endeavor because it indicates what will happen throughout. So when you are trying to make an important decision, or are contemplating a significant question, you can observe the non-verbal signs present in nature at that time to help you figure out the wisest course of action.
