Intuitive Oracle Card Reading Challenge – Day 8

“Sometimes you don’t know when you’re taking the first step through a door until you’re already inside.” ~ Ann Voskamp

 

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.


Self-Care Action

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. You can read all about those offerings and take advantage of our pre-launch bonuses by clicking here.

You’ll also enjoy my Mystical Manifesting Workshop on November 11, 2018. This workshop, co-facilitated with channelling with my energetic companions Silith and Rollo, utilises all of the rituals I use to close out one year and herald in the new one.

  • How to program a crystal as your 2019 Manifestation Stone

Intuitive Oracle Card Reading Challenge – Day 2

“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

Intuitive Oracle Card Reading Challenge – Day 1

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”
~
Kahlil Gibran

 

Good Morning, and welcome to our Oracle Card Challenge. This Challenge is designed to help you connect into who you are, what you need and what is the best way forward for you.

Today we place ourselves on the map of our heart. We work out exactly where our starting position is with our very first card. When we know where we are starting from it makes it much easier to work out where we are going, and what needs to be done to get us moving in a direction that is better aligned with our Highest Good.

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:

  1. Mini-meditation with your crystal
  2. Card of the Day
  3. Question of the Day Three card spread (optional)
  4. 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 – 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.

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 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.

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

Question of The Day Three Card Spread (optional activity, if you have the time and inclination)

Welcome to Our Free Online Oracle Card Intuitive Guidance Challenge

“To me, a witch is a woman that is capable of letting her intuition take hold of her actions, that communes with her environment, that isn’t afraid of facing challenges.”
~
Paulo Coelho

 

Today’s post is designed to help familiarise you with some basic techniques you’ll need for our  Oracle Card Challenge, which is starting tomorrow.

Oracle or Tarot cards are a a tool to help tune you in to your own intuition and inner knowing. We’re going to work with them in ways that expand our own inner knowing and connection.

It is possible that you may choose the same card more than once over the course of this challenge. Each time you choose a card, treat it as a whole new message. You may find yourself having several interpretations from just one card over time, depending on the questions you have asked.


Choosing your Deck

Choose a deck of Oracle or Tarot cards based solely upon the pictures. Avoid Tarot decks that have pictures of coins or swords are cups as the primary image for a card. Choose your deck based upon the images and their ability to tell a story for you.

Current favourite decks of mine include Osho Zen Tarot, Colette Baron Reid’s oracle decks such as Enchanted Map and Wisdom of the Oracle, the Mythic Tarot and Tao Oracle Cards.

 

If you don’t have a deck you can use one of Colette Baron Reid’s online ones here.


Preparing the Deck

If the cards are new, shuffle through the cards taking a moment to look at and connect to each one.

Now shuffle the cards back together, or give the cards a shuffle if they are an existing deck.

Hold them between your two hands and visualise white light running into the cards. Offer up a small prayer or intention that these cards work with you for your Highest Good.

Now your cards are ready to go!


Choosing your Crystal or Stone

If you are working with the Year of ME Planner, use the stone you chose as your 2018 crystal.

Otherwise, choose a crystal or stone (it can even be from the garden or the beach) that appeals to you and that feels good in your hand.

Go HERE  to do a short meditation to connect you in to your stone.


Your Other Materials

You will also need a journal or some paper. You’re welcome to use the notes pages in your YOM (Year of ME Planner) too. At a minimum you’ll need a pen to write with, but feel free to have some different coloured pens, highlighters or pencils at your disposal to help make the information come alive in your journal.


Format for the Challenge

Each day you’ll need five to ten minutes. It’s a challenge you can do in your coffee break! You’ll use your crystal and do a short guided meditation, and then follow the instructions on the blog post to choose and interpret your card for the day.

Okay, now you have everything you need to begin. See you tomorrow for Day One of our Challenge.

Much love, Nicole ❤  xx

 

Teacup Oracle – For Life Guidance

 

Who would then deny that when I am sipping tea in my tearoom I am swallowing the whole universe with it and that this very moment of my lifting the bowl to my lips is eternity itself transcending time and space?
~ D.T. Suzuki

 

Will you join me for a cup of tea and a little magic?

Every so often I like to create an oracle for you. The very first one I ever posted was The Healing Power of Flowers and Fairy Blessings.  We offered a selection of flowers for you to choose from, and each flower came with a message – a mini-reading if you will. It was so well received that I’ve been creating oracles for you ever since.

Today I’m so pleased to offer you another of my Magical Oracles! This time, I’m offering a cup of tea to provide you with the wisdom, guidance and support you might need right now.

Instructions for using today’s post

Scroll down through the following teacup images and then let yourself come back to the one you are most drawn to.

When you have chosen your teacup, scroll further down for your oracle message. Trust that what you most need to know is exactly what you shall choose.

Love and Light,

Nicole ♥ xx

♥ Your Teacup’s Message ♥

Each magical teacup has a message for you.

(If you’d like to know more about working with crystals click here) The Power Word is a word to remind yourself of the quality you most need and that you are strongly attracting right now.  You can turn it into your own personal mantra by saying “I choose ___________ ” (insert your Power Word). Your Magical Healing Environment is a place or activity you’ll find supportive and healing.

1. Violets Teacup You’re being so strongly supported by loved ones who’ve crossed over, and by your Guides and the Angelic Realms.

It can also be you stepping up to be the mentor and teacher, and you putting your gifts out into the world. Embrace possibility!

3.  Everything Golden Teacup  A time of turning corners, of new beginnings, fresh starts and remaking yourself and your life. You are being encouraged to actively create the life of your dreams. It’s your life, and you are worthy of every good thing, so step up and claim it.

What you need most right now is good company – the company of a friend or lover, of family or your favourite pets, of new friends and old. Of like-minded people who can share your journey. And it’s also letting you know that so many of the things you enjoyed in childhood are still available to support you now, and to enrich your life.  Best Crystal – ROSE QUARTZ  ♥ Power Word – FRIENDS  Magical Healing Environment – Time spent connecting with friends Catch up with old friends you haven’t seen for the longest time.
