Day 1 – Oracle Card Challenge

“No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.”
~ Madonna

 

Choosing your Positioning Card

In order to chart a course to anywhere else, we first need to establish our current position. So today’s card will help you to do just that. Here’s what you need to do:

Take your crystal, and complete this short guided meditation:

Hold your stone in your cupped hands, close your eyes, and slow your breathing. Bring white light into your body until you feel peaceful and calm. Then bring white light into the crystal too. Allow yourself to connect to the stone. You may feel it tingle, or visualise a colour in your mind’s eye. When you are ready, open your eyes. Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write.

 

Now shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself ‘Where am I in my life right now?’

When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select just one card. How you choose that card is up to you. You can split the deck. You could take the top or bottom card. You could fan the cards out and take one from the array.

Place the card face up in front of you.

Clear your mind by closing your eyes and taking one deep breath in and then out. Open your eyes again. Take a minute and look at the picture on the oracle or tarot card.

What stands out for you? Is it an image or a colour? Is it a number or a word? What are your first impressions?

Write these down in your journal.

 

Now let’s go a little deeper. What feelings or words does this card evoke in your mind when you think about the card and its images in relation to the question ‘Where am I in my life right now?’ Take five minutes and just write some stream-of-consciousness thoughts down. Don’t censor or judge them. Trust the process.

Finally, read back over what you have written.

Expect that more insights may come up for you during the day. Write anything important down in your journal so that you can continue to reflect upon it.

 

*PS – I often take a photo of my card on my phone, so that I can refer back to it later!
