“So I call on my Angels, they say….” – Rise by Katy PerryOur support is never-ending. We like to think there are limits because boundaries are so familiar to us on the Earth plane, but when we want some help or wisdom, the possibilities are limitless. One of the tools we have available is our Angel Cards. Unlike Tarot Cards, Angel Cards are oracle cards that offer advice rather than telling you exactly what will happen in the future. In my opinion, this makes Angel Cards far more suitable for anyone who’s starting out with cards because they’ll always offer positive, healing advice and can even be used by children. Tarot Cards, however, can foretell catastrophe in your future so they’re not for the fainthearted. They can leave you feeling more anxious than before the reading. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve been using my tarot cards as an extension of my intuition since I was 14 – but the vibration of them is very different and they aren’t always positive. So, if you need some advice and are feeling called to turn to Angel Cards, how can you begin to use them like a pro?
Everything is energy, including our Angel Cards. To get the most accurate answer possible from every reading, it’s important to cleanse your cards between use. This doesn’t mean literally taking a cleaning wipe to them (which could damage the card) – but it does mean giving them an energetic refresh! Some methods include knocking the deck to shift old energy (I knock mine twice before each reading), ringing Angel tuning forks over them, or burning white sage near them. Whichever you choose, make sure that you keep your cards energetically clean for the best results.
Intention supports the outcome of everything that we do in life, and the same is true when shuffling oracle cards! Get into a meditative headspace first and try to clear your mind of any distractions before asking a question. This may mean that you need to devote extra time to readings to allow your mind to wind down first. Stay calm. Breathe. And then ask the Angels what you want help with…
When you’re shuffling the cards, you should start to feel that there’s a natural point for you to stop. Sometimes this could mean a quick rearrange of the cards. Other times, you’ll want to keep shuffling, and shuffling, and shuffling… Neither is wrong, and when performing a reading, the most important thing is to leave logical reasoning at the door and follow your intuition. Whenever you feel called to stop shuffling, then stop shuffling and trust that what feels right.
⚠️ It’s really important that you don’t try to do a reading when you’re feeling rushed or frantic because not only will it throw your intuition off, but your frantic energy will feed into the cards (see tip #1) and affect the answer you get. Maybe the Angels will tell you ways to relax rather than answering the question that you asked!
