Ever had the same book recommended to you by several people in a short period of time? Ever had an experience where someone has offered you a book without prompting and it has turned out to be exactly what you needed? Chances are your guides are trying to get your attention on a particular topic so be sure you pay attention! Read more »
Over the course of a week’s worth of readings, it’s not unusual for the same card to be turned over a number of times by several clients in separate readings. For example, on Sunday while I was giving readings at the Boutique Markets, several people in a row turned over the ‘healing’ card. With 44 cards in the deck and each client asked to shuffle the cards then split the deck into three piles, it’s pretty unlikely this is purely coincidence.
While the cards indicate the type of information to relay to the client, it’s unusual for the same card to have the exact same meaning for two different people. This is where my guides help me during a reading. If you’re using the cards at home, this is where your own intuition comes into play.
I use Doreen Virtue’s Angel Cards during my readings. I’ve since bought other decks of hers but I always come back to these. My interpretation of the cards has always been based on intuition and opening to my Guides. In November last year I completed Doreen Virtue’s Angel Intuitive workshop, which means I am now also ‘qualified’ to give angel readings. It still works exactly the same way for me.
For anyone using the cards at home, here’s a quick run-down.
- Sit quietly and try and quiet your mind. If you’re inclined to meditate, it’s useful to do so beforehand. If not, just sit still, focus on your breath for a few minutes until you feel a sense of calm come over you.
- Ask your guides to help give you whatever information you need to know. You can ask a specific question or you can simply see what comes up. However you do it, it is important to ask!
- Shuffle the cards. When you feel ready, select cards from the deck. I usually like to pick three cards at random when reading for myself and usually feel guided as to which ones to choose. It’s up to you how many you’d like to choose. Also pay attention to any cards which ‘jump’ out from the deck. I find these usually hold a more pressing issue to be aware of.
- If you have an accompanying booklet, refer to the notes. Whatever jumps out at you is usually what is most important. You may find something draws your attention in the artwork on the card. You may just get a sense of what the card is trying to tell you. This may come from a thought, a feeling, a picture you see and so on. If it doesn’t make sense to you, ask your guides for further clarification and draw another card.
- Write down and date your observations against the question you asked. It’s useful to go back later and see whether your intuition played out the way you thought.
