Folk magic is the inspiration for these bags. When one uses an oracle bag, they are relying completely on intuition to interpret the meanings of the items.
Each bag is unique. They all hold two semi-precious stones, two runes, two deer bones, two metal findings, one chicken foot, and one human tooth, and an antique key. All are held in a black silky drawstring bag.
To use an oracle bag, make a space sacred. Lay down a cloth, bowl, basket, or fur skin. Shake the bag, thinking of the question being asked. With intention clearly stated aloud, empty the contents of the bag onto the divination area. Read the items. Pay close attention to each piece and how they are related to the others that are on the divination area. Is anything overlapping, did an item not fall out, is there an item that fell off of the divination area? Taking into consideration all of these things and more while relying on intuition will enable the witch to answer the original question while that bag was being shaken.
