If you were drawn to the set of Cards 1:
Shadow - Although no one likes to admit it, we all have our dark sides and shadows - those less than flattering facets of our personality that take delight in abusing and shaming others and wielding power in the most unfair ways. Your Divine guides are present now to help you witness your shadow, lovingly making you aware that it's actually contempt for yourself and your vulnerability that fuels such hostility towards others. These gentle but powerful higher forces surround you in love and urge you to accept and embrace your weaker aspects, rather than harshly rejecting yourself by attacking those aspects in others. Ease up, and be more tolerant of yourself. If you do so, these shadows will give way to light and healing. This is a clear message to you in order to face your shadow. We must be able to find wholeness in order to ascend to the consciousness of Unconditional Love. In order to find true wholeness, we must integrate all aspects of ourselves into our true authentic selves. No more masks, no more compromise. We must learn to love and accept ourselves just as we are, without striving for perfection first. Without turning from that which we do not with to acknowledge. We must know that every part of us is lovable and deserving of love. We are worthy. We must find our truth. You may find your shadow seems quite large right now, and try to hide from it. You may find it mirrored in those around you, or that it comes up constantly in different ways for you to deal with. This is the Universe asking you to process these feelings, once and for all. You cannot run from yourself, you can only Be yourself. And remember, yourself is exactly who you came here to be. Care message: Wisdom - There is much wisdom in the shadow and so much to learn. Don't shy away from the hard work or become afraid to face what seems dark. You will walk away more educated, well-rounded, and far more blessed in new knowledge of yourself and all of your aspects. Wisdom is a hard learned lesson at times, but it is what allows us to bask in the grace of experience. Open yourself to wisdom that is coming your way through both rational and intuitive sources.
If you selected the set of Cards 2:
Intuition - This card encourages you to trust your inner guidance and to embrace the intuitive wisdom that resides within your soul. By drawing this card, you are being urged to honor your sensitivity at all times and to prioritize your premonitions and hunches above practicality and logic. This isn't a time to be influenced by others opinions or to betray your inner guidance in order to it in. Instead, you must trust your intuition, for it will never let you down. You are now being encouraged to spend quiet time alone. Nature and the outdoors will enhance your connection to Source and align your soul with Mother Earth. Likewise, regular prayer, meditation, listening to beautiful music mindful breathing, and exercises such as yoga, or Qigong will enhance your intuition and help develop your clairvoyant, clairaudient, clairsentient, and claircognizant abilities. The intuition card also comes to those whose intuitive gifts are strong, but underdeveloped. It is an important part of who you are. Be open to learning about your intuition and how it works. Take classes, read information on it, and speak to those you know who are actively using their gift. You may be very surprised by how easily and naturally your intuition blossoms for you. Intuition guides us to our own personal higher cause. It tells us what choices will best suit us, who we want in our lives, and how to interpret the energy of our environment. On a higher level, intuition may tell you universal truths. It is our intuition that connects us to ourselves and what we need for ourselves on a deeper level. When we lose touch with the inner voice that guides and directs our lives, we become lost. We must believe in ourselves; strengthen the connection to our intuition. We must take back our power and trust in our instincts. They will never let us down if we truly listen. They will always guide us on our highest path. Know that whatever you decide will be right for you; look at the lessons learned and see if there are patterns that you need to release in order to move on, either alone or together. Lead with love. Care message: Empathy - Make empathy great again! I have seen this message all over the place, and while empathy is a beautiful part of being spiritually connected to all that is, remember you must be empathetic towards your own self and journey. Empathy and intuition are two peas in a pod. They go hand in hand. Use your intuition and personal discernment.
If you chose the set Cards 3:
Abundance - Abundance is a state of plenty. Abundance is a feeling. Abundance surrounds you. Have faith and conviction. Complete trust is required. Your ‘rainy day’ is today. Determine your goals and reasons and set intentions. A state of contentment not influenced by external factors. Relax and enjoy yourself. Generosity ripples outwards. The more you give, the more you receive. Appreciate and be grateful. What is abundance? Abundance is defined as a state of plenty. Abundance embodies a way of living that does not change, regardless of whether you have more or less in your life. Abundance cannot be earned, given, bestowed, or taken away; it is contentment born of fulfillment and appreciation. Abundance means to see and appreciate the wealth that surrounds us - not just the material wealth, but the abundance of energy, love, nature, spirituality, food, enjoyment, and time. Abundance is a perpetual state of evolution, expansion, and growth that is mirrored in all that surrounds us. If you do not see these things, you may be restricting the flow of abundance. Perhaps you have blockages in place - beliefs that have you seeing a lack or scarcity, and embracing an idea that everything is limited or will run out. It is about giving and receiving in equal measure, rather than controlling, taking, possessing, or hoarding. Being generous, and appreciative, and grateful will help you to experience abundance. Being loving, and giving love will help you receive love. Being respectful will help bring respect to you. Giving with the right intentions for the right reasons, sharing what you have without fear, rather than dwelling on what you do not have, these will help bring wealth to you. Remember, however, abundance is about giving simply because you can and want to, not because you want something in exchange. But abundance is more than just financial stuff. This is a shift in the way that you see the world, and that is priceless. Abundance in every way is yours. Open to receive it now. Care message: Trust - Trusting the Universe takes courage, but it also removes the burden of doing it all on your own. When you feel alone in a situation, it can diminish your energy and desire to take actions that will improve the situation. This card reminds you that you are not alone. It is also a reminder that positive energy is available to you to manifest what you truly desire. In addition to trust, this is a card of action and opportunity. Once we know that the Universe “has our back,” we are free to take that all important leap of faith and pursue our dreams. Put aside any fear, disillusionment, frustration or hopelessness and open your heart to what you desire.
