An enlightening romp through the history of divination.

Of all the colorful tales about growing up in America's Deep South that my friend Julia told me, the one about "the lady in the big old red bandanna" was my favorite. As the story opens, Julia is a small child walking with her mother through the streets of Atlanta when a mysterious stranger (i.e. the lady in the big old red bandanna) stops them, squats down, looks Julia in the "aaah" and says, "Whaaah, I do believe you have the gift." The lady then takes her and her mother into a back alley and teaches the young clairvoyant how to read stones and bones. This was the story with which Julia introduced her "stone readings," a method of divination that involved tossing a handful of pebbles onto a medicine wheel she'd draw on the ground with a stick. In the first three years after first hearing this tale, I had many "aaah" and heart opening stone readings from Julia. But one night when the two of us were camping with our children - after we had put our smaller companions to bed - we sat around the fire together and shared some of our deepest secrets. "You know that story I always tell about the lady in the big old red bandanna who taught me how to read stones and bones?" she asked. I nodded at her across the flames. "I made it all up," she confessed. "I figured that if I told people I made up my own way of reading, nobody would listen to what I had to say." I laughed in the realization that her revelation could not diminish the insight I had gleaned from her readings. Not only that, her confession brought the business of reading out of the hands of the esoteric few back into the realms of "us folks." And so, the next morning I went to the river, gathered my first set of personal "reading" stones, and set out on the path my sixth sense would carve for me. Sarvananda was my next tutor on that path. We worked side-by-side as "psychics" in New York's Catskill Mountain resorts for more than five! years (between 1988 and 1992) and his unpretentious approach to "reading" the world around him was a joy to behold. Besides, he was good at it. A Natural - with vision based in the heart, ears tuned to the inner voice, and an unselfconscious capacity for bringing the mystical back to the earth. SIGNS OF THE TIMES: FINDING OMENS IN EVERYDAY LIFE is Sarvananda's offering of the well-informed, compassionate, inspired guidance that were my private privilege for so many years as his psychic side-kick. If you are moved to delve deeper into your own clairvoyance (literally, clear vision), this book on the practice of divination is your perfect guide. The culmination of a richly divergent career as scholar and professor of history, 18-year meditator/disciple of Osho, and long-time professional psychic, this is a book only Sarvananda could deliver. Both humorous and reverent in tone, it is at once a thoroughly researched (29 back pages of annotated footnotes!) historical perspective on the role of omens in man's quest for self-understanding, and an abundant tool

A fantastic read for anyone interested in psychic phenomena.

I picked up this book as a skeptic and wound up finishing it far more open to the ideas that Dr. Bluestone explains. The book is full of games and exercises, and uses humor and true-life anecdotes to illustrate complex ideas and concepts. "Signs of the Times" isn't hocus-pocus foo-foo Madame-X magic stuff, as many books claiming to cover similar ground wind up being. It's a truly educated examination of the subject. I've never read a book quite like it, and doubt that any of comparable quality exist on this subject. If you're even remotely interested in this subject, or if you're a skeptic (as I am), pick up this book. I am truly looking forward to other books by Dr. Bluestone.
