“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” ~Wayne W. Dyer
It’s easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of life, and to unconsciously move away from the things that keep us balanced, healthy and happy. Over the next few days we look at the things we’ve forgotten or are neglecting that could bring meaning, wellness or peace back into our lives.
Remember that using cards is a way to access your intuition and inner knowing. If a card comes up that looks negative or upsetting, consider that this may be a situation which can now be healed, a pattern to be broken, or an issue that is coming to an end. Universal Guidance and our own intuition always and only speak from love. Trust that all messages will have a positive and useful insight to help you learn, heal or transcend.
Each day’s Challenge will take the same format:
- Mini-meditation with your crystal
- Card of the Day
- Question of the Day Three card spread (optional)
- Self-Care action
Mini Meditation with your Crystal
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 you may experience colour, images or guiding thoughts. When you are ready, open your eyes.
Keep your stone near you, and hold it when you write. If any insights have already emerged take a moment to write them down!
Card of the Day – What Have I forgotten or neglected that could help me with my health right now?
Your body knows, your soul knows, but sometimes the mind forgets! Today’s card will help you to tune in to something important that can support your health and wellbeing in the days ahead.
Now shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself ‘What Have I forgotten or neglected that could help me with my health right now?’
When you have shuffled the cards and they feel ‘done’, select just one card. 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 ‘What Have I forgotten or neglected that could help me with my health right now?’ Take two 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.
Question of The Day Three Card Spread (optional activity, if you have the time and inclination)
Now we have an idea of what we have been neglecting or have forgotten that can help us with our health it’s useful to understand what has led us to be in this starting position. What is the background to this current situation in our life?
Return your Daily Card to the pack and shuffle the cards, asking the question ‘How Did I Get Here?’ Choose three cards and lay them face down in front of you.
The card on the left is The Issue. The card in the middle is your Helpful Action. The card on the right is The Learning.
- Turn the first card over and let it give you insights into the issues/choices/actions that led to you being where you are now.
- Turn the second card over. This card shows you the way forward. Let it show you what you can do, what choices you can make, actions you can take, to get you moving forward in a positive and aligned way to bring healing or progress or change.
- Turn the third card over. This card will help you gain insights into how to avoid a repeat of a problem, how to break patterns or change your thoughts around this situation, or which things to keep doing so that your life works better for you in the future based on the current situation.
Write notes in your journal if this is helpful.
Based on the insights you’ve received from today’s cards, what small action can you take today to look after yourself well and to show yourself nurture and kindness? Write that down in your journal and make sure to action it!
Sending you love, and my intention that these insights from the Oracle Card Challenge illuminate your life in positive ways,
