Embraced! Questions Keeping My Mind Open And Receptive

EmbracedI’m working on my Oracle card set. Doing so I’ve realised that I have embraced such a lot of things I once questioned. Even the idea that randomly picking a card from a pile was a way to get my questions answered.

Yet that is what happens. I’ve used Tarot and Oracle cards for many years now. They give me an insight into the way the energy in and around me is flowing. And a long time ago I embraced the support these psychic tools can give me. I guess I could have stopped at that point when I felt that I had found a source of help. But some part of me still had questions. And I was determined enough to want answers. Looking at that search for answers it was about certainty. In an uncertain world I want to know that everything will turn out for the best. So I have continued to ask questions. With the realisation that the act of asking questions is only useful if I keep my mind open for the answers. Whether I like them or not.

I know it is easy to fall into seeing or experiencing my life only from one point of view. I ask questions to check in with how others see life. Because when I have embraced another world view I can update my understanding of what life is all about. Even of my self. And what I am about. Questions help me to know that I can grow, evolve, live different choices.  Questions can also shake me out of my certainty. I feel it’s good to have my views challenged. Because those views might actually be restricting my choices and keeping me from more love, joy and laughter.

When I have embraced the answers I’ve already received there will still be more questions. Life is a progression. A flow. Otherwise all I am doing is going through the motions. And forgetting to embrace all that life has to offer me. Not a pattern I want to encourage in myself. What questions are you asking?

First Time For Everything? A Day Of Cards

first cardsI remember back in 1991 I discovered the art of reading cards. However my interest in Tarot cards started much earlier than that. I became fascinated when I had my first ever card reading. My sceptical side struggled to take in the information I was being given. All because it was really accurate.

I guess that threw me into a real wobble. I had been persuaded by a friend to go along to a local psychic. So I was very up tight, hardly saying yes or no and rather shocked at what she was saying. It was as if I was an open book she could read. It unnerved me for quite a while so I pushed that first experience to the back of my mind. Where it sat for quite a long time. Until I was ready to explore card reading for a different perspective. When I wanted to learn how to read them for myself. My interest had been sparked by a friend who was learning to read cards herself. So I got a book and a pack of ordinary playing cards to make my first attempt at getting information about me.

It’s safe to say that I have come a long way from those first stumbling steps. I have lots of packs of all sorts of cards. I love how they respond to the questions I ask. Enjoy the insights they give me. And appreciate they are always positive about my ability to deal with the issues in my life. Today I did a series of card readings at a local shop. Nearly every person who came was having their first card reading. As they reacted in surprise to the accuracy of what they were hearing I thought about my reaction all those years ago. I understood how mystical it can seem. So I was delighted that my cards, trusty friends, brought so much positive energy into the readings.

Of course it’s been a long time since my first reading for someone else. I now know the why and how of card readings. However I still enjoy the ‘magic’ of a successful reading. Because I hope, like it did for me, that it will inspire another person to get curious about Tarot and Oracle cards. Perhaps, one day, they will pick up a pack and decide to give card reading a go. And open up to the wonderful support and guidance that this particular psychic technique can provide.

Remember Old Times? Back To The Beginning

Remember I did a card reading this evening. Nothing unusual in that. However, as I started to read the cards for my client a lovely Spirit lady stepped in to speak to her. After the reading I sat for a moment to remember old times when I was just beginning to trust that there were Spirit people. It made me recognise how far I’ve come since then.

A lot of people dismiss Tarot and Oracle cards as a way of connecting with Spirit people. Cards are a psychic tool and are great for developing intuition and connections to energy. Early on I learned how accurate they could be following a reading of playing cards my friend did. I remember how sceptical I was.That’s what got me started into using cards at all. Remembering my friend this evening I wondered where the last 25 years had gone. I hope she smiles when she sees me pull out a pack of cards.  Because for a long time I thought the cards were the most I could do. It was only when I started to feel the presence of Spirits and their words started to break through that I began to take mediumship seriously.

Remembering those first few times of debating with the visiting Spirit I have to laugh. Laugh at my insistence that they couldn’t be real. And my determination to stick to only psychic communication. I certainly didn’t want to entertain the idea that I could connect in a completely different way. Part of me didn’t want to get confused. But I also know that another part of me was running scared. After all I had no idea where it might all lead. Thinking about my reluctance at that time I’m glad I stuck with having the experience of reading cards. Eventually I plucked up the courage to start developing the more direct Spirit connections. Because now I see how much those connections have given me.

Spending time remembering all those years back has been a really precious reminder that I don’t know where any path will lead me. Except that it will bring me surprises, adventure and a great deal of love. Helping people has always been a passion of mine and I can say that my life in the last twenty five years has been full to the brim with that. If you get a chance to use Tarot or Oracle cards remember you might be setting off on a wonderful journey!
