So here’s what happened today at our card altar- I was paring down the decks (only setting extras aside in case I got on-line tonight and there was an overwhelming response that said “crazy witch! We want to see every single card you own!”) and arranging what was left. When I read cards for a person (in person, that is, someone sitting in front of me and paying their hard-earned pesos for my skills) I have them touch the deck. By touching, I mean getting themselves all over the cards. Shuffle, handle, mess ‘em up all over the table, fondle, and basically really connect with them. That’s what I did with the ones we are going to use. I had them in a sort of (almost) circle (decided not to try and find a larger table) so I could go around the group and not confuse my swiss cheese brain.
I was thinking about each of you who have commented, those of you who I know in real life, those three I’ve given birth to or the one I married (who married me, whatever), those of you I am friends with, those of you I’m related to, and those of you who have blogs or websites I read. I was waiting for the cards to tell me where we were going to start. Of course, they did. (My cards are always reliable.)
While I had one deck all scattered and completely disorganized in front of me I noticed how really cool the back illustration was. Now, this is a deck I have probably had for five years or more. But today I saw something I hadn’t been made aware of until this point (the cards do this a lot).
Lora commented the other day about a butterfly tattoo, so that immediately popped into my head while I was handling this deck. Then, when I was putting them back together one decided to jump out. (When a card throws itself at me, I take notice.) This will be where we start.
Healing with the Fairies ~ Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue
Making New Friends
Our circle of friends and acquaintances is shifting to a higher frequency. Old friends may not be as noticable on a regular basis, and new people are entering our day-to-day existence. Our changing interests and priorities have made a ripple effect throughout our entire life. As our thoughts and emotions center on more spiritually natured topics, or focus on new interests, we are now attracting like-minded people around us. The Fairies ask us not to worry about these evolving shifts. We are making room for growth, and acknowledging the Law of Attraction. Know that we deserve wonderful friends who inspire, support, understand, and complement us.
(This deck has an affirmation with each card, not all do though.)
I am grateful for my wonderfully supportive and loving friends.
I won’t be describing, in-depth, every single card we select. Some are just kind of plain, and their meaning is more than their picture. In this case, it’s a lovely friendly fairy standing amongst some blue flowers, with blue toned butterflies all around her. (This entire deck is not all about butterflies, I swear!)
I need to Thank the Universe today for connecting me with Gina at the U of O, and allowing me to be part of the her reasearch study.
