Tea leaf reading uses symbols in the residue left in the bottom a tea cup. Reading symbols or symbology can actually take many forms and not limited to tea leaf reading. Symbology makes sense of form, either objects, actions or even words and gives them a contextual meaning or value depending on the situation or even question being asked.
Interpreting symbols is subjective to the person who is reading them and involves being able to read the patterns of symbols. Tea Leaf reading is just one method of reading symbols and patterns and can be learned by anyone.
Tea Leaf reading requires tapping into your psychic intuition. At a recent workshop with Kate Denning of the Rendezvous Tea Room, in Woollongabba I had the pleasure of learning more about tea leaf reading.
According to Kate, Tea Leaf reading has a wonderful and eclectic history in Brisbane which she discusses in detail in her 2019 published book titled The A-Z of Tea Leaf Reading.
Tea Leaf Reading is a form of divination I have always wanted to learn more about and attending Kate’s 2 hour workshop I was able to learn the basics of reading my own leaves, along with practicing on a fellow workshop participant.
While I found reading for myself difficult, I discovered my ability to read for another person was extremely easy, accurate and a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to continuing to develop my skills in this area of divination and have since had a few interesting experiences with readings.
From my own perspective reading my own tea leaves has a lot to do with mindset, clear intention and the particular type of tea leaf used. Kate outlined a basic method which I have been following along with adding my own individual style to it. So far my readings have been for myself but now I am ready to branch out and try it on others. If you are looking for something fun and different and you are keen to my guinea pig please contact me at the Cottage and we can arrange a Tea Leaf Reading session so I can practice.
