The Divination Practice of ''Crithomancy'' is related to several Ancient Beliefs. First (to a small degree), Ancient Egypt, Greece and later The Mayan Cultures. It was more so seen used by several Southwestern Native American Tribes as well. In theory, the creation of small cake from Barley Flour (or related small baked goods), would allow a Reader to ''see'' future'' events in both the flour and later the cake itself. The various patterns were determined to be ''answers'' to specific question. The cake itself need not be eaten to produce the effects (as with other methods known).
