Your Soul Café: Conversations that Open Hearts and Inspire Actions
Drawing an oracle card every day can provide you with a word waymark to direct thoughts and writing—maybe even guidance for your goals and intentions. It’s a simple, intuitive practice…one that I wrote about on January 1 to discover your sacred word(s) for a New Year’s resolution, title, affirmation, or mantra.
For 2019, please join me on my pilgrimage using the Sacred Traveler Oracle Cards for the first time; they’re created by Denise Linn, a bestselling author of 18 books and translated into 29 languages. They complement and reinforce the new 2019 theme on my Facebook pages and the first book now underway, Writing Medicine: The Must-Have Guide to Your Hero’s Journey to Inner Healing.
How can oracle cards assist you on your Hero’s Journey? They can help:
* Give clarity to concerns and issues
* Offer problem-solving perspectives
* Interpret signs and dreams, especially repeating ones
* Inspire writing and creative projects
* Become more present to the now moment
As part of my Divine Dialogue Writing System, you are taught to ask, “What do I need to know for and about my best and Highest good today?” (You can be more specific if you choose.)
Get quiet. Be still and breathe. Shuffle the deck. Place them on your heart. Breathe. Then draw a card with your left hand, as that’s the hand with the veins and arteries that directly connect with your beating, heart.
If you believe in Oneness, then today’s message for you and me is…
Notice your first reaction when seeing the oracle card. You might not be pleased with what appears. And after eight years of this practice almost every morning, I’ve learned to trust what shows up–comfortable or uncomfortable, it is all good.
Read the guidebook.
Write and interact with the word waymarks.
Allow the information to sit with you.
Be open to how the message’s confirmation unfolds during the day. Indeed, you might be surprised how on point the information was!
Distant Thunder Card meaning (partial):
“Clear the air. Dramatic purification, renewal, and healing are occurring on many levels. Don’t be concerned if there is chaos in your life; in this instance it is good. It is shaking things up, so you don’t become stagnant. If your auric field or your personal space is cluttered, it’s difficult for new experiences and opportunities to come into your life. It’s time to clear out the clutter…”
The Sacred Traveler Wants You to Know:
“On the distant horizon, a storm is brewing. Great shards of lightning are thunder-bolting to the earth from the heavens. It can feel chaotic, but it heralds a time of renewal. Thunderstorms clear the dust out of the air and, reenergizes the earth. Be open to change…”
What I Want You, the Hero, to Feel:
You’re not alone in this chaotic chaos. I know because Tampa Bay, Florida, the “Lightning Capital of the World,” is my home.
Be inspired to declutter your inner and outer life. Try the popcorn method. Set a timer for 18 minutes a day. There’s scientific proof explaining why this works as explained in 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done by Peter Bregman.
Some people, places and things will naturally fall away, like the “dust” that rains ash away, renewing the earth (and you) with fresh sights and senses. Other decluttering will take intention and goal setting practices.
Finally, believe that the “distant thunderstorm” is a positive sign because they produce lightning, a transformative symbol connecting heaven and earth for you. Your best and Highest good is about to rain down on you! Renewal and recharging are on the way.
What “distant thunderstorm” do you hear and see in your life? Thank you in advance for sharing in the comments.
