This week (after a vote on Facebook) we are using the “Daily Guidance from your Angels” cards by Doreen Virtue. This is the first deck I bought, and it’s my favourite – possibly because I feel better connected to them, from working with them for longer.
Here’s how this works: take a deep breath and calm your thoughts. Look at the image below and decide which card (or cards) you are drawn to. I usually just pick one, but it’s ok to pick two – or even more if you feel like it! Once you’ve chosen your card, scroll down and take a look at the photo and write-up to see which your card was, and what it means.
If you would like a personalised reading, I am offering these for free until the end of July. Just email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org – and let me know if you’d like a general reading or if you have a particular question in mind.
Next week’s reading will be with a different deck of cards; keep an eye out on Facebook for a poll as to which one I should use!
Dont’ forget to leave a comment either here or on Facebook and let me know how you get on!
Here are this week’s cards:
1. Reward Yourself
You’ve been giving a lot of yourself lately, and it’s time for you to receive. Make the time to reward yourself in a meaningful way. This balance of giving and receiving is essential to keeping your energy, mood and motivation at a consistently high level.
This card is about taking care of yourself – which you have been neglecting lately. Take some time for yourself as a reward for your recent hard work. Invest in yourself this week and try to take a little time each day just for you. This could be in a daily meditation practice, or it could be reading a book or doing something else – something that you love, which brings you joy. Give your inner child the attention it craves; buy yourself a gift or even treat yourself to a day trip or a night out. See how you feel when you value yourself.
2. The Ocean
The deep blue sea speaks to your soul, healing and soothing you. Even the act of imagining yourself dipping into its healing womb brings about desirable effects. Better yet, spend time physically near the ocean. Allow its power and beauty to wash away all cares and concerns.
You feel some sort of connection with the ocean, and there is a sense of longing to return to it. This card is here to tell you it’s time to take a trip to the ocean and spend some time there. If this is not a possibility, meditate on ocean waves or even find a video of the ocean on YouTube to feel the benefits. This card may be here to help you to make a decision where a holiday is concerned – a choice between two places? If so, go with the place where you feel most drawn to the ocean there.
3. Change in Direction
The changes you’re experiencing are Divinely directed by your newborn willingness to open your heart to love and our guidance. You are protected now and in the future, so follow your path to the happy outcomes you desire.
You’ve had some form of change of heart which has change the direction of your life in some way. It’s important to remember that this may not have been a massive change; even a small change in direction can lead to a massive change in destination in the long run. Something has changed about the way you choose to live; what you used to do before no longer appeals to you, so you’ve made – or are in the process of making – a change to your ways. This is ultimately for the better, even if you sometimes have second thoughts. This way may not be the easy way, but the end results will be worth it.
4. Notice the Signs
Yes, the signs you’ve been receiving are heaven-sent. We drop feathers, coins and other signs upon your path to remind you that you’re loved and never alone.
The angels have been leaving signs for you, but you are not necessarily noticing them – or registering them as signs. This might include feathers or coins in your path but also other things such as animals or recurring numbers or even words. Basically, any time you notice something and wonder if it’s a sign – it is! If you are having trouble making a decision, or not sure if you’re going in the right direction, you can ask for a sign. State your intention that “if I am on the right path I will see —” – fill in the blank with your choice of animal or object. Keep this in mind as you go about your day, and remember not to be too literal. You may have asked to be shown a chicken, and then see a picture of a chicken on a passing lorry! Signs are here to guide us on our path and to reassure us we’re going in the right direction. If you want a sign – ask for it!
