BASIC READING

Choosing a Card for the Day or to Get a Quick Insight into a Particular Situation

Choosing a Card

CHOOSING A CARD

Before you start, it is very helpful to choose a quiet space. Breathe in and out a few times. This will clear your mind and you will be more focused and receptive.

1. Think of an issue in your life for which you would like some clarity.

2. Intuitively pick a card from the deck, color images facing you, eyes closed.

 

Here is a personal example:
I wanted to know which card would best illustrate a BASIC READING.

Spending time with the Image

INTERACTION

3. Look at the chosen image. Engage with it with all your senses. See where it takes you.

Example (continued):
The card I chose happened to be the first card in the deck. My initial feeling was that this card was very appropriate for this demonstration, as for me, it is an invitation to inner exploration.

Receiving the message

INTERPRETATION

4. Turn the card over. Read your keyword and message. Reflect.

Example:
I wanted to know which card would best illustrate a BASIC READING. When I read the keyword and message, it confirmed that it was the perfect card for this demonstration. Whomever seeks a reading is invited to do so with confidence.

3 CARD READING

Spend time with each card before choosing another one.

First Card

FIRST CARD : PRESENT SITUATION – FOCUS ON YOUR QUESTION

Stay with the image in order to experience how it translates your feelings. Notice where and what you feel in your physical body. Take your time to explore what is being felt. Nature communicates through all 5 senses. Then, turn the card over and read the keyword and message. How do they support your question? Be open minded.

The cards are taking you through a learning process. Even though you may feel that you already have your answer, allow the card to take you even deeper. Breathe. Be still. Be receptive. This is just the beginning.

Here is a personal example:
I wanted to know which card would best illustrate a CARD READING process?

To my surprise the first card was the same one as above.

Second Card

CARD 2: POSSIBILITIES

When you are ready to go further, choose a second card, and repeat the same process. This card suggests possible solution. It will give you further insight into your exploration. Please remember that this is an intuitive process. It is an inner journey meant to take you to the depths of yourself, allowing you to find your own solutions. As stated before, there is no book that will give you a standardized answer. The solution is within yourself, trust the process.

Example (continued):
“Which 2nd card would best explain the 3 CARD READING process?

This image visually gave me a sense of movement and direction, a distinct evolution from the first card. It confirmed that the role of the second card is to show possibilities.

The message on the back of the card “clear FLIGHT” says to me that it is opening the way for solutions to appear.

Third Card

CARD 3: OUTCOME

The third card will confirm the direction that you feel inclined to take (or not take).

Example (continued):
“Which 2nd card would best explain the 3 CARD READING process?

The third card surprised me and confused me at first. After pondering over it, the card started to make sense; one needs to be patient with this inner process as the solution may not readily be shown. Some unwinding and reprograming in the brain* needs to take place so that new possibilities can show themselves. This is the purpose of the cards: to allow new pathways to be formed as old ones are discarded, and find your unique true self in the process. This was confirmed by the message on the back of the card: “DISCOVER the door to treasure.”

Keywords & Messages

SUMMARY:

Notice how the key words and messages of the 3 cards relate to one another in the sequence. This process will give you further clarity and confirmation.

Example (continued):

•When I look at the 3 messages and keywords: “WELCOME live in confidence, clear FLIGHT, and DISCOVER the door to treasure” I feel that the cards explained the process.

•The first card represents the present situation. You want to remain confident as you choose your cards.

•The second card represents possibilities. You want to remain open as you choose your cards.

•The third card represents outcome. You may or may not get an immediate answer, but trust the process.
