“Sometimes you don’t know when you’re taking the first step through a door until you’re already inside.” ~
Today’s the last day of our online Oracle Card Challenge. Thanks so much for having been a part of it!
For our final question, we’re throwing things open to the Universe and our own Inner Wisdom. Expect ah-ha moments, validation, breakthroughs and Divine Inspiration.
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.
Let’s get started!
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’s the first and most important step I need to take to change my life?
This is an important question, although the answer may be simple. Honour this by taking a moment to centre yourself, to calm yourself, to become fully present. Then tune in to your heart.
Shuffle your cards, while silently asking the question to yourself What’s the first and most important step I need to take to change my life?
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’s the first and most important step I need to take to change my life? 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)
Trust that you’ve been shown something that is truly useful to you.
Return your Daily Card to the pack and shuffle the cards, asking the question ‘How can I best use this Insight?’ Choose three cards and lay them face down in front of you.
The card on the left is The Opportunity. The card in the middle is your Helpful Action. The card on the right is The Outcome.
1. Turn the first card over and let it give you insights into the opportunity and direction today’s information could create for you.
2. 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 create momentum, progress or change.
3. Turn the third card over. This card will help you gain insights into how acting on this opportunity can potentially transform your life
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!
Where to from here?
Spend some time between now and the end of the year in reflection on the answers you have journaled. Build on the knowledge that you’ve accessed. Let it shape and inform your future decisions and life direction.
If you’d like extra support and a guidance system for the year ahead consider ordering one of my YOM Planners – which is a system for planning and living a mindful year using techniques similar to what you’ve practiced here.
