Do you have that one great friend; the one you always love talking with; the person who seems to offer the right nugget of wisdom just when you need it the most? When you think of the talks you've had with that friend, do they feel empowering or more advice-ladened? When I was younger, talking with my friends about some angst-filled moment, I'd find myself being given the lines "you know what you should do" and I'd quickly feel indebted to their unsolicited advice. Back then, I didn't know how to listen to my own compass or the messages of my inner knowing.
Over the years, as a way to trust my own voice, I've practiced asking myself questions; journaling thoughts; and cultivating my intuition. One of the tools I've used in this process are Oracle cards.
The word "oracle" derives from the Latin orare "to speak" and commonly refers to a person or object that delivers guidance and speaks wise counsel. My oracle cards connect me to my higher knowing. As I get older, it's easier to see how my thoughts have been formed by my beliefs and experiences. I can get caught in self-made boxes; acting only from what I know from experience or from what I was raised to believe. To break out of these boxes, I need inspiration from something beyond my day to day thinking. This is when I turn to my oracle cards.
The cards are like a board of directors meeting between me and something bigger than me. I'm asking my highest self to show me what I need to know, determining if I am staying true to myself, and what right-aligned actions steps can be taken next. When I find myself deeply attached to a particular outcome, the cards spark a light inside me that connects me back to my truth.
I use my cards on a regular basis for things like:
centering myself for the day
seeing other possibilities in any situation
brainstorming ideas for upcoming projects
understanding my story in motion
moving past self-imposed obstacles
creating new opportunities
moving into my authentic purpose
and much more
