Do you want to know what lies in your future? Well, so did ancient man and this basic human desire led to the creation and discovery, of different methods of fortune telling. Astrology, numerology, I–ching, crystallomancy (reading of a crystal ball), palmistry (cheiromancy), as well as psychic readings may all be different ways of predicting the future, but are all driven by this same desire.

In that case, how would one define fortune telling?
"Fortune Telling is the practice of predicting the future, usually of an individual, through mystical or supernatural means.".
This is what distinguishes predicting the future from say forecasting the weather, one relies on mystical techniques, while the other does not.

How do the more popular forms of fortune telling differ?

Astrology requires an accurate time, place and date of birth of the concerned person, their name is also of help. From these details, the horoscope chart prevalent at that exact point in time, at that particular location is cast. Applying the laws of astrology, allows an astrologer to make predictions about the future depending on the position of different planets, their characteristics and the transits that will pass.

According to Vedic mythology, astrology was given to man through divine intervention. The this knowledge was recorded by the sage, 'Maharishi Bhrigu' with the assistance of Venus, who was also a great sage. These texts, known as, the 'Bhrigu Samhita' contained details of the past and present lives of every person who will live on earth. This information can still be found today and is in the possession of the protectors of the texts. Many people have been lucky enough to find their details however be advised, today many charlatans also operate in this area, so verify who you're dealing with if you ever go out in search of your own records.

Tarot card readings involve the user drawing his or her choice of cards from the pack. The tarot reader is then required to use their psychic ability to interpret card meanings and thus divine the future. Even the most accomplished tarot card readers find it difficult to objectively interpret their own cards and therefore rely on others to make readings for them.

Ancient civilizations, have held that all information about the past, present and future is recorded in the very fabric of the Universe. According to Hindu mythology, the 'Akashic Records', which are located in the depths of the Universe, hold this information and this is available for access to anyone with a sufficiently elevated level of consciousness. This may not be as far fetched as it seems. Today, some theoretical quantum physicists suggest that our consciousness maybe made of quantum information that merges with a 'Universal Consciousness' or intelligence, when the body no longer exists.

As this eye opening YouTube video explains, if we apply the most recently discovered principles of quantum physics, it is possible to not only describe consciousness and a 'Universal Consciousness', in scientific terms, but also the after life. We'll let you judge for yourself.
