SHOW ME - READING ANGEL CARDS
You needn't memorize the instruction book before reading cards for fun or profit In fact, I encourage my students to throw out the instruction book before looking at it.
Every deck of oracle cards comes with book or sheet of paper -usually in teeny tiny print- giving you the literal meaning of each card and pretty much set you free to memorize and read.
However when you actually try to read cards, you find yourself frantically flipping through the little booklet.
Even so, when you get the definition(s) correct, it sounds conjured and stiff.
The best readers I know only take the briefest of glances at the manual or ditch it altogether. They also prefer cards with no writing or explanation on the cards themselves.
If you think about it ..if you draw the same card for ten people the odds against it meaning exactly the same thing for all ten people are staggering.
Let's look at a simple one card draw for example- Say, we draw Raye from one of the Doreen Virtue decks.
Once you've read the little phrase at the bottom out, you are stuck, your brain won't let it think of any other meaning. What if the literal meaning does not make sense?? What uncomfortable chit chat for the remaining 14 minutes of the reading!! So here is RAYE with the printing erased. We get:
Calm down, take a deep breath and imagine you are reading a child a story. Anyone who has ever done the bedtime story routine knows that the child can find differences in the picture every time it's read. As well if you are reading the story to more than one child at a time, they will each point out what pops out to them. As well, if you were reading a picture book without words to your 6 year old boy, you would look at it differently and read it differently to your 4 year old girl. Same book but different reading depending on the audience, The same it is with cards.
So sit a moment and sense what is popping out in this card today for this client. (Or ask what the client what jumps out them ).
If you client is big on colors, to them it could read:
The major color is purple the color of the third eye so this reading would be all about intuition or psychic ability.
The lady is dressed in blacks and basics - reading pertains to the crux of whatever the issue is.
She's obviously being still, meditating or perhaps in lotus position for yoga.
As she does this Light streams in and illuminates the situation so she can get answered.
The smaller amount of green light indicates the whole situation is to do with healing.
Some people would see the wings a separate and indicative of being surrounded by angels.
Bottom line reading would be...spend time in prayer/meditation/yoga/what ever works for you - do it intensely and you will get the answers you're seeking.
How did we do?
" Yoga and exercise are essential to your underlying peace of mind and spiritual well being right now."
We expanded the reading, personalized and made it flow while preserving the basic message and without using the book.
