What is the Cowrie Shell Reading Process?

Djembe Tree Of Wisdom

Anytime you are in a period of transition and are seeking accurate and helpful information, a cowrie shell reading is a powerful consultation process.

Using a special cloth mat featuring ancient imagery that represents certain segments of one’s life, Martin incorporates 133 cowrie shells and a variety of other items that come from the Dagara tribe in West Africa, the origins of this unique energy consultation process.

The reading itself, which lasts approximately 45 minutes to an hour, can be done three ways:

  1. In person
  2. Through Skype
  3. Over the telephone

When done in person, Martin will ask you to physically spread the shells and other items around on the divination cloth, imprinting your energy onto the items. When receiving a reading over Skype or the telephone, Martin has you repeat your name three times as he spreads the items himself, following a special protocol that ensures his energy is not imprinted on the shells.

Although you are unable to see the shells and divination cloth when receiving your reading over the telephone, Martin takes a picture of your shell layout and emails it to you so you have a visual representation of what the ancestors are telling you. He also records on audio the process so you can refer back to it as often as you wish, until you are ready for a new reading.

Contact Martin to schedule your cowrie shell reading: in person, through Skype, or over the telephone! Each delivery method is as powerful and as effective as the next.

When Do I Need a Cowrie Shell Reading?

Where It All Began

Diviners Bag Holds The Shells

The ancient practice of cowrie shell readings stems from the traditions of the West African Dagara tribe. The unique 5 Element system used in the readings allows you to learn about your life from the perspective of the ancestors. A reading with cowrie shells is like a doorway to an unseen world where the ancestors’ perspectives are revealed, giving you new directions in life.

The ancestors can see what each of us brings to the world and what impact we have on the world, even when we cannot sense these dimensions ourselves.

So, when do you need a reading? Anytime you need clarity on something, want to make a change in your life, or if you need to get a new perspective on any facet of your life.
