Using Cards For Daily Direction

Collection of Tarot & Oracle Cards

Without a doubt, the popularity of Tarot and Oracle cards is on the rise. The most common method is to use cards for “readings” but did you know there are other ways to use cards in your every day life even if you don’t consider yourself intuitive? Well, there is! Here is a simple way to use cards to help you get the most out of your day.

To begin, start with choosing a deck that speaks to you. For the purpose of daily direction, it doesn’t need to be a complicated or balanced deck. If you love the artwork, that’s enough. Its only positive cards, that’s ok too because the point is to help you be more mindful throughout the day. Start each morning with a few minutes of meditation. Quieting your mind and breathing deeply are the important parts.

Next think about the day ahead of you in a positive way. For example, think about the endless opportunities that might show themselves, or the positive aspects of your work and family commitments that day. The tricky part is to not let your mind wander too far. You need to be focused on only today, not tomorrow, not next week, not yesterday. Only today. Be open to a message from whatever the universe or your higher self wants to show you. Remember if you pre-decide what you want to know, or close your mind to different types of messages it stunts the intuitive process. So just relax and be open...

Next, begin to shuffle the cards. Remember to focus only on today while you shuffle. If you allow your mind to wander, it will interfere with the process. Finally, its time to pick a card. How you do that is entirely up to you. Some people like to take the top card. Others prefer to dig through. Both are fine. The idea is that you allow it to be whatever it is. So don’t look at the faces of the cards to find one you want. Simply pick from looking at the backs only. It’s that simple. Now that you’ve picked your card, it’s time to look at the picture. If you are using the Seekers Oracle Cards begin with noticing what colours and shapes speak to you first.

Then it’s time to move on to reading the message. Some decks will have a message right on the card, but the majority will have a booklet with the meaning per card included.

Read the meaning, and remember that you are associating it for this day only. Not the past, not the future, not relationships. It is only about you and your day. What to do next is entirely up to you. Many people like to leave the card out on their nightstand, or sacred space. Others like to take a picture of it to have on their phones. And others put it on the top of the deck. The decision is yours. Throughout the day, reflect on your card. Allow it to help you to be more aware of your choices and attitudes. Day by day, you may see your life improve and your happiness grow.
