Like many intuitive Reiki masters and practitioners, I use cards of all sorts in my practice. Tarot, Angel, Animal Spirit. OK. OK. I have about 12 decks and I’m pretty sure that’s minor league in comparison to others. Cards are like crystals. You don’t have enough and you can never have enough. I am called to different decks for different reasons and before a session with someone, I will ask which deck or decks are coming out to join us. Whether it is in person or distance I will use cards for many sessions.
Before a recent session, I had a sense that the angels had a message for me and I needed to pull a card. So I went to my wall of cards and pulled out Doreen Virtue’s deck Daily Guidance from Your Angels Oracle cards. Before I tell you the card, let me share that I’ve been working on work/work balance. Working my current business with Pampered Chef that I’ve been doing for 22.5 years and building this new healing business- Healing with Yvette. I’ve been challenged in figuring out how to split my time and manage it. This past weekend I was scheduled to go to a retreat with Walter for the church. My thought was:
“Awesome! I will use this time to write content for my website!”.
I was all set to do that. I knew what I needed to bring with me etc. Then I “hear” a message that I need to draw a card for myself. This is the card I drew:
I just shook my head and said “OK. OK. I hear you!” My carefully crafted plans of working while away to create content for my website flew out the window- on angels wings you could say. I’m happy to report that I spent three hours on Friday working on the content and then was fully present during the retreat Friday night-Sunday morning.
Sunday I came back and taught a Reiki 1 Class. (The focus of Reiki 1 is on self healing and learning “what is reiki?”) As I was preparing for the class, I got a sense to bring out the decks of cards and offer them up to each student to pick one deck and ask a question. I then picked from the remaining decks and asked “What message do you have for me?” Would you like to guess the card before you look at the picture?
Right? I mean. Come on! Really? Didn’t I just go away for two nights and one full day? Apparently I did not play enough. Truth be told I don’t play enough. I feel like I don’t use my time effectively and so I don’t deserve that time. If only ever day was like my day before vacation where I get lots done and feel accomplished and deserving of vacation time. I know I’m not alone with this. Maybe we can start an accountability club for play. Kids get a play group- why can’t we? I heard the message to get the message from the card. Now the next step, apparently, is listening to the card. Details. Details.
