Diviner's Harp: Gift Composition
This is an example of what would be on the recordings that comes with a Diviner's Harp reading. In this instance it is the reading of the composition that is (almost) visible on the Diviner's Harp info page. I set this composition in place when I am not running a Diviner's Harp composition for someone.
It is my gift to you.
The intention (below) is designed to bring in powerful, positive energies to enhance the energies of your life.
All you have to do is choose to receive it, open to it, and celebrate in it. Blessings.
"With Spirit's help and guidance and in alignment with highest good, may everyone who sees this Diviner's Harp composition be blessed with frequent and abundant happiness, love, good health, joy, wealth, and success in their life."

The Reading of the Gift Composition
The following write-up is an example of what the recording a composition analysis would contain. Be forewarned that this is a complex and dense read. In the Diviner's Harp materials that you would receive this information would be much easier to comprehend because you will have all five reference sheets laid out in front of you as you are listening to the recording of all this.
Except that the recording includes a lot of "Um's", "Hmmm's",and "Well, hmmmm, let's see here..." -- free of charge.
The Focus Icons are placed first. Spirit directed their placement thus:
The Icon that represents me, David, is sitting on the Emotional Level on the Square that represents Work. This is speaking both about my work in the world -- doing shamanic work and Diviner's Harp work, specifically as it relates to helping others realize the gifts of this composition especially through transforming emotional energies -- and the work that I am doing on my self -- my personal growth.
It is interesting to note, by looking at the Energy Weave Mapping, that I am not directly linked to the "energy engines" that are driving the forces to generate the gifts of this composition. This makes sense because of the fact that, while I am within the overall field, as the operator of the Diviner's Harp I am in the role of guiding or controlling agent. To control a system one needs to be outside of the system.
"Energy engines" are my way of describing the flowchart-like linking of the various Icons. These links are created when Icons come in contact with each other through the energy represented in the squares and other Icons. For example: Annah is linked to the energy of Play/Joy by virtue of the fact that her Icon is resting on the Square of Play/Joy. The Icon that represents The Great Mystery/Infinity/The Great Unknown is also linked to Annah because it is resting on the Squares of Play/Joy in all the levels. (This multi-level placement happens because the Icon for The Great Mystery has landed on the Spirit Level and every Spirit Level Icon exists simultaneously on each level -- Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, and Physical.) Both of these Icons, Annah and The Great Mystery, are also linked with the Icon of Play/Joy and to the energies that are contained in the square representing the World/Cosmos because Play/Joy's Icon is part of this composition and is resting on the Square of World/Cosmos, and so on. (see the Energy Weave Mapping page, lower right)
This linking of energies between the Icons describes the flow of energy through the system, through the energy field surrounding everyone involved in this composition.
My wife Annah's Icon is resting on the Mental Level on the Square of Play/Joy. This is the role that Annah is playing in supporting this composition and is also the primary energy that Annah is receiving.
This means that Divine energy (God/Goddess/Trickster energy) is being delivered into the Physical world, into our daily lives. There is also a Spirit Level Icon, Clarity, which is clearing the blocks and negative energies on each level so that everyone who sees and accepts this Diviner's Harp composition is opened to receive the Divine energy.
Note also (see the Energy Weave Mapping page) that Clarity has traveled through several locations and levels before landing on its final resting place. ("Traveling through" is noted by the " ( ) " surrounding the words and means that Spirit directed, through the randomizing process, that the Icon move from one square/level to another.) This is Clarity clearing Fear on all levels (because any piece that lands on the Spirit Level exists simultaneously on all levels) and Clarity clearing the way for Birth/New Beginnings on the Physical Level.
Supporting the transformations brought to everyone via the work of Clarity on the Divine Spirit Level, and the Patron Icon on the Divine Physical Level is the Birth/New Beginnings Icon which is sitting on the Spirit Level (and therefore all the Levels) on the Square of Adventure/Travel/Life Path. This support happens because Clarity traveled through the Square of Birth/New Beginnings setting up a path/link for the energy flow. What this is doing is bringing new possibilities in to all aspects and paths of our lives (Birth/New Beginnings on the Square of Adventure/Travel/Life Path on the Spirit Level).
What new possibilities? For starters the Adventure/Travel/Life Path Icon is sitting on the Square of Dreams/Holy Grail on the Emotions Level. The hopes and dreams that we are strongly emotionally attached to, the ones that guide and define (or should) our life path, our life choices (as represented by the Quests for the Holy Grail). We now have the possibility of manifesting our dreams (finding our personal Holy Grail).
This is a good time to look at the energy flow through Creativity. On the Energy Weave Mapping page you will see a squashed green octagon labeled Creativity (left side, lower middle of the page). There are several linked Icons and Squares through Creativity. The PowerAnimals Icon (Spirit Helpers) is feeding emotional creativity into the circuit. You can think of this as Spirit Helpers creatively supporting emotional transformation and energy to help drive the Creative energy for the Birth/New Beginnings energy on our Life Path (Adventure/Travel/Life Path). Look for choices, projects, ideas that feel spiritually guided (PowerAnimals) -- paths and choices that feel like they are manifesting our dreams.
The Creativity Icon (see the Energy Weave Mapping page) traveled through the Square of the World/Cosmos on the Emotions Level. The sky (or perhaps the universe) is the limit in terms of creative energy. The Icon of Play/Joy is feeding the World Cosmos Square on the Mental Level. Our mental play, playing with ideas, associations, relationships, etc is supporting the World/Cosmos energy as it helps drive the Creativity energies. And remember that Annah's Icon is on the Square of Play/Joy in the Mental Level. Annah's energies are guiding the playful thoughts and energies through the World /Cosmos. Annah is a very playful and creative person -- ideal for that activity.
Two other places that Creativity is working is the Chaos/War/Discord Icon sitting on the Square of Creativity on the Physical Level and the Zen/Surrender Icon that passed through the Creativity Squares from the Spirit Level (remember that any Icon that lands on the Spirit Level actually exists on all four levels at the same time).
So what does Chaos have to do with Creativity in our Physical, day to day world? It is important to remember that the Icon of the Divine is actually titled "God/Goddess/Trickster" and that some of the Zen Masters create enlightenment through the use of tricky, non-rational, mind puzzles, called Koans, that force the mind to think outside of the box -- these Koans create a kind of mental chaos from which Wisdom can unfold. And the Wisdom of Enlightenment is an experiential event -- you experience it. You don't feel it or even think it. It arrives in your body as a knowing.
As mythologies and sacred stories demonstrate, sometimes it is the Trickster aspect of the Divine which liberates us. Seeing how the Chaos Icon is linked in a very strange way to the Wisdom Icon (bottom left of the Energy Weave Mapping page) points out the powerful reinforced work that Wisdom is doing with Chaos. This re-enforcement of this work is seen in how the Wisdom Icon was called to travel through the Square of Chaos only to immediately be placed back on the exact same square and exact same level -- the Emotions Level.
The Divine Trickster stirring up a little Chaos is an incredible source of Creativity and Wisdom (in this composition Emotional Wisdom). Chaos breaks the rules, "boxes", and guidelines that keep us inside the same day-to-day rut. And nobody promised that this composition was "work free". You have the choice of accepting the energy field created through the intention of this Diviner's Harp composition. If you do choose to meld it into your own energy field, you can expect some Trickster energy to stir up some Creative Chaos that leads to Emotional Wisdom as it delivers the gifts of this composition. And you will have to do your part -- you have to "show up" within the process offered.
How will this Creative Chaos show up? In many and unexpected ways. The composition suggests that Play/Joy will be offered from the World/Cosmos at large -- It will show up in mind games and puzzles that will appear in your life. (The Play/Joy Icon sitting on the World/Cosmos Square on the Mental Level) This Play/Joy is powerfully supported by another aspect of the Divine and of Creativity -- The Icon that represents The Great Unknown/Infinity/The Great Mystery. These are the qualities of both the Divine (the unknowable and mysterious) and of Creativity (pulling from infinite possibilities, drawing from some mysterious and unknown place something new and unimagined, until that moment, is birthed). The Great Unknown Icon is sitting on the Spirit Level (thus all levels) on the Square of Play/Joy.
This Play/Joy energy circuit that is feeding the World/Cosmos which is feeding Creativity, etc. is further energized by the fact that the Play/Joy Icon traveled through the Square of Nature/Animals/Pets on the Physical Level (bottom right on the Energy Weave Mapping page). Nature is the localized energy, the personal energy of the World/Cosmos. Nature is your "neighborhood", World/Cosmos is your "city" or even "country". Lots of Play/Joy from the World/Cosmos and Nature/Animals/Pets arriving in unexpected ways (The Great Mystery Icon and the Chaos Icon on the Creativity Square).
Note, too, (see Energy Weave Mapping page, lower right) that by courageously engaging in the mental play and puzzles offered from the World/Cosmos, Nature/Animals/Pets, and The Great Mystery, etc. you will be rewarded in the your daily life. (Reward/Money Icon on the Square of Courage/Initiation on the Mental Level and that same icon having spent time working with Nature/Animals/Pets on the Physical Level.)
Let's return to the effects of the Divine circuit on the Icon that represents everyone who sees and accepts this Diviner's Harp composition (the Patron Icon on the Square of the Divine on the Physical Level).
On the Energy Weave Mapping page at the top we see that the Icon that represents the Divine (God/Goddess/Trickster) is sitting on the Square of Destruction on the Mental Level. Often the concept of destruction seems negative. However there are many times that destruction is the necessary and perfect thing to clear the old and dysfunctional to make way for the adventure of the Birth of new, Creative, Reward-filled events. It is clear from the supporting Icons that this is the role of Destruction in this composition. It is Divine destruction of mental blocks, self-limiting beliefs and judgments, etc. This destruction is being transformed in peaceful and powerful ways to ultimately bring about perfect peace not only around mental blocks and issues but on all levels and all aspects of your being.
To say the above paragraph in the language of the Diviner's Harp:
The Icon for Death/Transformation is sitting on all levels (by virtue of the fact that it is placed on the Spirit Level) on the Square of Destruction. This is supporting the change and transformation of mental blocks by The Divine resting on the Square of Destruction on the Mental Level. The Icon of Peace/Harmony has already spent time working to bring about the peaceful transformations through destruction of mental blocks -- Peace/Harmony spent time on (traveled through) the Mental Level on the Square of Destruction. Finally Peace/Harmony finds a perfect placement to provide us with such energy through all the levels by resting finally on the Square of Peace/Harmony on the Spirit Level.
The last circuit of this composition is the one working Fear/Hate/Negativity.
The Fear/Hate/Negativity Icon (top middle of the Energy Weave Mapping page) is resting on the Square of Dreams/Holy Grail on the Spirit Level. Fear has been blocking the free flow of our dreams, it has been blocking the flow of Adventure/Travel/Life Path energy that Clarity has been helping to Birth. Clarity has already done work to clear this Fear block after it was done clearing the way to Birth Creativity into the world (Clarity Icon traveled through the Square of Fear/Hate/Negativity on the Spirit Level). After it finished the work on clearing Fear, Clarity moved to its final position on the Square of the Divine on the Spirit Level.
The Zen/Surrender Icon continues to work the Fear energy by its placement on the Square of Fear/Hate/Negativity on the Spirit Level. There is a lot of spiritual energy working to shift the fears that keep us from manifesting our dreams that advance us on our Life Path, especially through our Emotional world (Adventure on Square of Dreams on Emotions Level).
One other place that our dreams get blocked is from Confusion, especially Confusion around how to manifest our dreams in the physical world (The Confusion Icon sitting on the Square of Dreams/Holy Grail on the Physical Level). Here we see the importance of community in holding us and helping us to clear the emotional confusions of our lives especially as it blocks the manifestation of our dreams. (The Icon of Friends/Family having traveled through the Square of Confusion on the Emotions Level on its way to its final energy position on the Square of Home/Environment on the Physical Level.)
This concludes the reading of this Diviner's Harp composition. The energy weaves and interactions of the forces revealed by the Icons and their placements is carefully and powerfully working to manifest the intention of the composition to deliver the gifts of blessing "with frequent and abundant happiness, love, good health, joy, wealth, and success..."
The process and information is probably as complex as an astrology or Tarot reading, perhaps more so. There are many other relationships and energy interactions, separate from those revealed in the Energy Weave Mapping page, that exist and are working this intention by virtue of the icons relative placements to each other. Just as an astrology reading can be reviewed and explored for more and more information, the Diviner's Harp composition could be endlessly explored.
While that might be fun, interesting, helpful and informational, the beauty of this tool is that the work is accomplished even if no attempt were ever made to interpret it.
