I'm one that has creative projects in abundance.
You know that right?!
One such project is MY WISDOM ORACLE CARD PROJECT.
For the last 10 years, I have been an avid card reader, seeking inspiration from tarot and oracle. For me, they are energy messengers – messengers to my soul, helping me to gain insight about life, situations and also helping me to gain clarity and depth. I have sat with many clients, friends and family doing readings.
They never cease to amaze me. They are a portal to inner reflection.
They don’t ‘tell’ me what to do and they certainly don’t ‘scare me’ - energy cards and tarot for that matter, are not here to do so.
They're a tool for deeper conversations.
I am guided by my spiritual guides, human and animal. They are always beside me. It’s not magic – it is energy. When we spend time with our cards, we imbue and transfer our energetic message and we become akin to the cards and to the stories they hold.
For the past 2 years, I have been creating 45 Wisdom Oracle Cards and guess what, I have done 8!
Not the greatest of numbers, but I am going to carry on with them.
The Inspiration for each Card will come from someone who has meant something to me, someone who has inspired me or taught me something. They could be people I know, or people I don't know, living or passed over. They may be people I have seen from afar. They may also be from dreamtime and with symbolism that I can’t recognise. It will all unfold.
So here is my card for this week.
Introducing: This Too Shall Pass
Release the Negativity. Explore any resistance and relax in the knowledge that you are able to heal. You have the power. You can change the way you approach the situation you face.
Background to the card:
This card is inspired by Louise Hay, Author, Metaphysical Teacher and founder of Hay House publishing. I was first introduced to her book You Can Heal Your Life almost 25 years ago when I was ill with M.E/CFS (myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome). It was passed to me when I was in the depths of ill health. I was just embarking on my ‘back to health plan’, using a variety of complementary approaches and healing methods and when I read this book I realised immediately that it was going to accompany me to find my own way back. I was transported into a metaphysical world that showed me I was responsible. I wasn’t waiting for one solution. I was going to find many and use them all. I devoured the book and used Louise’s morning and evening meditations – they helped me to learn to meditate and create a practice, it gave me extra courage to heal myself.
The meaning behind the card:
This wisdom card is a reminder for you that you can heal your self. Whatever is going on, perhaps a persistent long-term health problem, you can become your own investigator and learn some simple healing ways. One of the lessons I learnt all those years ago was to tune out from negativity that is streamed from television, radio and even people in our lives.
The first to go was late night news and radio. I realised I didn’t want to tap into this negative drip-feed. The world is not defined by bad news. My world had to be optimistic and encouraging. I had to see a way through this ill-health. I wasn’t opting out, I was becoming more focused and directed about healing myself. I tried everything you can name and settled on the therapies and practices that complemented my healing programme.
This card asks you to switch off from the negativity of your life.
Let it go.
Don’t tap into the drip feed of negativity.
The symbolism and colour of this card is very important. The colour that this beautiful woman is wearing is a shade of turquoise, once again representing the throat chakra and our communication centre; She is nudging you to speak or write out whatever is feeling negative within you.
How to use this card:
This card asks of you to explore your resistance and relax in the knowledge that you are able to heal. You have the power. You can change the way you approach the situation you face. Follow the image and place one hand over your naval area and one hand over your heart. Close your eyes and breathe through you nose for 7 seconds, then hold this breath for 7. Exhale for a count of 7 through your mouth. Really let go. Then hold for another count of 7 and breathe in once again, counting 7 through the tips of your fingers.
Sit quietly, breathing in this way, for a round of 7. Feel the gentle white trickle over you, like a gentle shower. Healing light bubbles, clearing negativity away from your body. Know that you can do this at any time during you day. Again and Again.
This card is a reminder to do just that.
