With any product that involves spirituality, you either believe or you don't, but in this case seeing - or experiencing - is believing. The more I've worked with these cards, the more astonished I am at how the messages come together to tell a story.
For a period of time when I was beginning my exploration of communication with my spirit guides and angels, no matter how many times I shuffled the deck, and even randomly scattered the cards, I'll pull the same 2 or 3 out - telling me to keep working on my spiritual growth, to pay attention to my dreams, and to further my spiritual learning.
Then, work went crazy... I've been so buried in it, i felt like i lost touch with everything. I ended up in a difficult situation where I felt a need to change my job, but wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do at this time, so i prayed on it, and came back to my spirit guides and angels and put the question to them for guidance. This time I felt I needed to choose 3 cards (day-to-day I just pull 1) - and they told a story of taking better care of my body (well that one really jumped out at me, because I'd gained weight and gotten sick from stress), making bold choices, and trusting that the changes that were presenting themselves were positive and to not be afraid. Ok then! I should note that none of the cards I pulled I'd never pulled before - all three were the first time!
On my first visit to a wonderful medium about two years ago that started me on my journey, my spirit guide - my great grandmother - told me that I had a talent for, of all things, the stock market. Except I *hate* dealing with money, and I *hate* stocks and investments! But she was really insistent that I could do very well for myself in this, and I set that aside because again, I hate it. Last week for the first time since getting married, I revisited my retirement portfolio, and found that as a single woman I was well ahead of the curve - but as part of a couple, we're now behind.... I've been fretting about this because I already max out my Corporate investment contributions, and I knew what that meant - time to find another way to increase retirement income. Flash forward to today...
This morning I was reading an article online my boss sent me, from a website I never heard of or visited before, and my eyes fell on a paid ad from Motley Fool investment services on a web page... Months ago, my husband had interviewed with them, and researched them, and we both really liked what they stood for, and what they do. I clicked, and ended up on a THIRTY MINUTE video that was a long-form sales pitch, but I couldn't look away. About 20 minutes in, I thought "Ok, you (spirit loved ones) are not letting me off the hook, are you?"
I went to the cards and thought "4", and pulled 4 from the spread. They read "Study" (you're beginning a new study - it's going to take time, don't try to put into practice right away...), "Manifestation" (aspirations are in progress, may arrive in a different fashion than you expected...rewards of peace security, and happiness...transformation of thoughts to tangible form), "Ideas & Inspiration" (pay attention to new thought and ideas... angels and God want you to notice and follow ideas you've received and answer to prayers for giudance, don't think it's imagination), and "Meditation" (important in your life right now, a quiet mind hears the voice of the angles more easily - the angels are asking you to quiet your mind).
I sat there looking at the cards and literally laughed out loud.I would point out that of all 4 cards, I'd never pulled any of them before, and the reason I went to the cards is because after I clicked to join an investment advisory service, I thought I was nuts for doing it, and even more nutty for thinking spirit had been guiding me.... well, THAT will teach me to doubt what my heart knows is true :)
Could I have made these decisions - to take the new job, and to begin learning about investment strategies - on my own? Absolutely. Do I feel comforted by the support of the Divine and Spirit in making them? Absolutely. We have free will, and no cards are going to make decisions for you - but it's a wonderful tool, and if you're going to ask someone for advice, why not ask those with nothing but pure intentions who can't benefit from the outcome? It's the ultimate in impartiality!
