I am pretty open minded and like to try many things to see what fits. I feel this is the only true way you can really find what works for you. How do you know if something works if you aren’t open to try new ideas?
I must have read an article somewhere, where someone was using Oracle Cards for some reason relevant to their story. This got me thinking, as I had randomly bought myself some Oracle Cards a couple of years ago when I went to Golden Door (Health and Wellbeing Retreat) in the Hunter Valley. I am discovering that nothing we do is actually random.
I decided that I wouldn’t get worked up about using these cards properly or in any particular way, I was going to use them as a resource, a means to access more information. Other examples of resources are Dreams, Signs and Synchronicities, Readings, whatever works for you. I decided that I would choose a card each day and see what came of it. I really had no expectation and time would tell if this would work for me.
Wow, I have done this little activity for four mornings now and for four days those cards have been very relevant to my day.
The first day I drew the card of Abundance. This cards depicts the arrival of a new flow of support materially, psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. I read the card and thought, ‘Wow, great’. I see that these cards have brought with them a new form of support. A new avenue of communication and connection which I haven’t been privy to until now.
The second day was my birthday and I drew the card Music. This seemed odd when I picked it out but I have learned to trust. Trust is a must. If you shut something down, then you wont be open to receiving whatever it is that is intended for you. I had a great day, I went out to lunch with my eldest son and my mum. On the way home, my son and I started arguing about life. I love the messages I receive from life and I am happy to share. My son and I are always arguing about this topic. You would think I would learn to keep my mouth shut but that just isn’t the type of person I am; I can’t help myself.
At some point, it occurred to me that I was just like my son when I was his age. I remember my mum not being able to put a foot right where I was concerned. My bad. I have to confess that I sent my mum a message to let her know I acknowledged every moment she had made an effort to make my life better in some way, but for whatever reason, I didn’t see it. I had a little giggle at the fact that karma was very much kicking my but, and tried to get through this argument with as little damage as possible. We can get fairly intense at times but we each know where the other is coming from and so we generally don’t seem to do too much harm.
I got home and had a disagreement with my daughter. I was thinking, ‘Great, I get it, I was a little shit, but it’s my birthday, do you think we can do this growth thing, tomorrow?’. My kids all went off to do whatever it is they do and I remembered the card I had chosen in the morning and borrowed my sons awesome headphones and went off to my room to listen to some music. The very first song that I listened to was ‘6 Ribbons’ by John English. This song reminds me of my nanna who has been my Guardian Angel all my life. It was like, Kapow!
The following day I drew the card Support. This card depicts that God, the Angels and Ascended Masters are all offering their support, love and guidance. I thought, ‘Awesome, thanks guys, I love you too.’. Later that day I received some devastating news. It was not the end of the world but I had obviously attached to this particular thing as when it didn’t work out the way I expected it to, I fell into a slump of disappointment.
I started feeling terrible, then I started to cry, this then turned into my feeling pissed off and then questioning everything I believed in. At the same time and I’m not sure how this works, but I sort of understood what was happening. I knew there was a lesson in this and I knew that it wasn’t in fact as dire as I thought. It was merely a hurdle.
This then led to me feeling like crap that I could doubt that everything was working out exactly as it was supposed to. A pretty intense night, nothing that would register on the Richter Scale but I seemed to feel every emotion possible that afternoon. It is times like this (thankfully they are very few and far between) when I hear my kids talking to me as I would to them if the roles were reversed. Got to love that. I went to bed that night feeling very grateful for the lessons I had learned and asked for forgiveness for what I saw as feeling ingratitude, impatience, stumbling at the very first hurdle, bowing to fear, you get the picture.
The very next morning the card I chose was Self Acceptance. I almost laughed out loud. I knew straight away that this was spot on. I have incredibly high expectations of myself and I really need to start treating myself like I treat everyone else. Another lesson learned. I feel incredibly blessed and funnily enough I got back to work on the project I was on (which I felt was in jeopardy), with the full understanding that this rejection was nothing more than an opportunity to let a part of myself go with love which was no longer needed.
Open yourself up to new and interesting ways you can connect to your higher self. You will be blown away by the difference and meaning it brings into your life. If you have tried and you feel like you need some help then send me a message, I'd love to have a chat about how I can help.
