Divination includes all the many ways we use our intuition or access information from the super conscious. As humans we are accustomed to using the mind rather than the intuition. Much like a muscle that has gone unused, intuition sometimes seems vague because we haven’t exercised it. Your intuition is that gut feeling, that knowing that is a feeling rather than a concrete thought. Trusting this information seems hard in a world that wants proof.
Divination Cards are like playing cards (which were once a form of tarot cards) that have meaning. These cards can be ColorCards, Color Wisdom Cards, Angel Cards, Animal Cards or any other kinds of cards that speak to you about how to live life meaningfully.
I find there are some misunderstandings about using divination cards. Some feel there is something magical about them. To me, they are like any other way we seek answers from a Divine Source. This Source can be what we call God, Higher Self, Soul, Angels, or Guides. There are many ways to communicate. Divination Cards is one of those ways. The cards are helpful because they set the mind aside for the moment so that the intuition or super conscious can come through.
Just like you wouldn’t seek important answers from just anyone, it is vital that you set up the parameters for your information gathering with the cards.
Here is the way I do this.
Remember, when you are picking the cards, you are being guided by your inner knowing. That’s why the cards are so accurate. The reading usually confirms what you already know but the information has not surfaced consciously yet. Even the information that is difficult to acknowledge is often something you had suspected or sensed.
Some people like to know exact dates when something will happen and ask Intuitive Readers of cards to pinpoint events. The information they share is simply what is true at that moment. You have choices. Others have choices. What was right a moment ago may now have changed. This doesn’t mean you can’t get accurate information, it just means that time is fluid. You are creating your life through your thoughts and through your decisions. Nothing is in stone. A good intuitive reader will point this out to you.
Use the information in the cards as guidelines, not hard and fast information that doesn’t change. When given information from the cards or from someone else, ask your heart if it is true. Trust the answer you receive more than what others tell you. Your heart is always right.
I created the ColorCards and the Mini ColorCards as fun, simple ways to access information through your intuition. Each color has meaning so the colors you choose tell you something about your life. Use that information to inform your decisions.
The card decks I created also point you toward strengths you have developed and what you are learning through your life experiences. This guides you away from thinking you are a victim at the mercy of events in your life or the decisions made by others who affect your life. There is no one to blame. Your choices need to be about what you truly want, not how you must react to the choices of others.
People ask me how often they should do a reading. I do readings whenever I feel the inner nudge. Usually this is when I am not paying attention. That is why I make it a practice to write every morning. This is another way to communicate with the Divine and to receive suggested guidance for the day. In Meditation Tools Made Simple you will find a simple writing exercise that allows you to communicate with Spirit. You can also use this exercise to receive information from those who have died or someone else’s soul.
When we limit communication to the mind, we see life on a human stage, not the universal landscape that we are all part of. We tend to think we are connected only to other humans. This is far from the truth. Of course, we can choose to limit our information that way, but if we open up to all that is available, life gets easier and more fun.
Raising Your Vibration by Working with Cards
Shedding the old beliefs and life patterns means our vibration can become finer and more complex. When you pick a Luminaries card, you take in the meaning of the art. This speaks to you within. This allows your unconscious to understand the changes you are making. The inspired writing also speaks to you in the new vibration. Focusing on the art and the inspired writing can be part of your shift into the new vibrations.Other forms of Divination
Besides cards, there are also pendulums, divining rods called dowsers, runes, and even the Ouija Board that can be used to access information from a divine source. Each of these tools comes to you free and clear of any positive or negative implications. It is how you use them that makes the difference. I discourage seeing them as something mysterious and perhaps dark. Certainly, entities with less than positive intentions can use these devices to confuse you if you are not clear in our intentions. It’s up to you. You are in charge. Find the tools that appeal to you. Work with different kinds of divination tools to see what feels most accurate for you.
Other Favorite Card Decks
Here are some of the Card Decks I like to use along with the ColorCards. You will also find suggested books that will teach you how to use a pendulum, dowser, runes, and other divination tools.Readers & Counselors
I also encourage you to call me or others of our Readers and Counselors if you feel you are too unclear to find the answers on your own. We will teach you how to hear those answers for yourself. It’s interesting how much easier it is to access your intuition when someone else is focusing on the information along with you. I also use visualization techniques in my counseling that you can learn to do on your own. Those who are available to help you on TransformationalTools.com are honest and good at what they do. They are not here to have you feel they get information faster and better than you do. They are available to work with you, not for you.Below are some of our favorite decks. Try picking a card from several decks. You will be surprised how the information is similar, yet becomes more complete when seen through different ways to look at it. Whatever information you receive this way, be sure to ask if this is right for you. Your inner knowing is your final and most true guidance system!
