Greetings, Great DUP'rs.
I've been asked so many questions lately; How do you read cards? How do you start?
How do you know a reading is clear, i.e. - How do you know negative energy is not interfering with the message? Especially when reading for someone else.
These are all excellent questions, and those asking ( and wondering ) have likely been called to be an oracle reader. I've been preparing this guide for both selecting and initially blessing your deck prior to using, as well as clearing it between uses. It's quite extensive, so I will be offering it in parts: PART I
: Preparing to Become and Oracle Reader Firstly
, you must "Know Thyself" in order to know others.
Know your gifts, accept your worthy, and have the self-confidence to share without fear of ridicule. The world needs your individual talent; you are here for a reason. Secondly
, the more you clutter-clear, the more you receive.
Clutter-clearing activates your energy. A good rule is, "If you don't love or use it, clear it."
Clutter-clearing your own mind and body of toxic thoughts and chemicals is also imperative for a concise reading. Beneath disfunction is clarity and wisdom. Thirdly
, why I use oracle cards vs Tarot.
Oracle cards are more fluid than Tarot, and more often than not, uplifting. There's more freedom, fluidity, and lightness to them. Fourthly
, Choosing a Deck.
An Oracle deck is a modality, a tool of divination. It's very important to connect with your deck on a spiritual level. If you're afforded the opportunity to shop in person, lightly touch the decks with permission from the shop keeper, Some do not allow ritual tools to be handled so that they maintain their pure energy. Feel what energetic response you receive if you can touch them. If not, use a pendulum to help you determine which deck resonates with your energy. ( We'll discuss pendulums and how to use them in another post ).
If you're shopping online, then use your intuition once your personal and sacred space has been cleared. You can also use a pendulum.
Great! You've selected your deck and you're excited and ready to begin! But not so fast! First, let's take care of a few things to ensure your sacred space is clear and protected for the reading. You can follow the steps below: • Clear Yourself
: What good does it do to offer someone a drink from a dirty cup?
Exactly. Clearing yourself is imperative to connect with higher vibrational energy. This doesn't just mean showering/bathing and donning clean clothes for your physical body, it also means clearing your mind. Once your physical body is taken care of, then clear your energy field.
If you've already bathed and had a shower for the day, but it's been hours, then washing your hands up to your elbows in cold water will work. Don't towel them dry, shake and allow them to dry naturally.
Begin with a selenite wand, white sage, clearing spray, or, alternative ritual tool you may use. Clear your energy field by running the wand/sage/alternative ritual tool along your body from head-to-toe, front, sides, and back, while repeating the following mantra ( or alternative mantra if you already have one ): By the power of Universal Source Energy, the Divine Masculine and Feminine, I hereby sever any cord, attachment, presence, spirit, or entity that does not love me unconditionally, nor desires my greatest good. You must leave my energy field forever, and never return without my specific oral permission. And so it is. And so it is. And so it is. • Clear Your Sacred Space: What good does it do to be pure fluid amid a dirty cup?
Repeat the above, except while walking around your home. Traditionally, one would start at the right corner of the entranceway to your home, and work around the home in a clockwise manner. Take care to open windows or doors as an exit for negative energy.
Repeat the above mantra ( or one you're familiar with using if seasoned ) for your sacred space: By the power of Universal Source Energy, the Divine Masculine and Feminine, I hereby sever any cord, attachment, presence, spirit, or entity that does not love me unconditionally, nor desires my greatest good. You must leave this sacred space forever, and never return without my specific oral permission. And so it is. And so it is. And so it is.
If you're in the habit of clearing your home as I am, then burning incense ( nag champa & dragon's blood are my favorites and very protective ) and/or sage/sweetgrass, palo santo, etc. in the room you'll be reading from is fine. I like to walk around the room just to infuse it with the scent and raise my vibration.
Great! You've selected your deck; you've cleansed and cleared yourself and your sacred space! In part II we'll discuss ways to clear and connect your energy with the deck!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! The above image are a few of the decks I use most often. There's another row behind them. Some are those I connected with; others were gifts I was meant to receive.
I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend here in America, and Oak Apple Day in England!
