Working with oracle messenger cards is one of my favorite ways to strengthen my intuition.

Life is like the seasons—full of cycles and changes. The cards help us navigate. We go through times of renewal and fresh starts because it’s time to move forward. Sometimes, we must leave something behind because it’s no longer working for us.

p
As we undergo these cycles of change, we can let go of old habits, find different kinds of work, or step out of comfort zones and try something new. Indeed, life is ever-changing. It’s an exciting and unpredictable adventure; a maze of possible choices and unknown outcomes. Sometimes when I feel like I’m a bit lost, I go to oracle cards for guidance. They have helped me so much, and I feel they may help you, too.


My Magical Experience

p
Over the years, my work with the oracles has often focused on dreams and creativity.

p
For example, I’ve received much guidance about the role of art in my life. About a year ago, The Green Lady card from one of my favorite decks, The Faeries’ Oracle, kept coming up in readings. She encouraged me to grow my talents and courageously embrace my innate magic. I’d also get Penelope the Dreamweaver card quite often, who of course is connected with magical dreams and visions. She seemed to be telling me to step out of the mundane and try new things that would inspire and renew me.

During this time, I also had a dream that I was drawing lots of pictures so I could make my own coloring book or cards.

p
All these messages pointed to my new direction. I decided I was going to get busy and start drawing again. (It had been years since I had done any drawing.)

p
Now, a year later, I’m happy to say my first coloring book will soon be published. (If you subscribe to my blog at sarathefairy.com you will receive a free sample to download.)

 

Oracles and the Intuitive Mind

p
How do oracle cards work?

p
The oracles work as an extension of what we already know in our subconscious mind, which is where our intuition comes from.

pp
The cards can be considered the physical representation of our internal intuition. When we use the oracles, we’re strengthening the connections between our subconscious mind, our intuition, and the physical world.

p
The images on the cards bring clarity to any hidden feelings, emotions or desires we may have.

p
As we shuffle them and focus on our question, we’re setting an intention and releasing our energy into the cards. This is what gives them power.


Your Choice and Your Power

There are many varieties of oracle cards. Some have themes like goddess, angels, animals or faeries.

p
One of my favorite sets is Oracle of Visions. The images in this deck are not only colorful and pretty but also very straightforward, making it easier to understand their meaning.

p
The other deck I love is The Faeries’ Oracle, as previously mentioned. Using this deck is one of my favorite ways to connect with the faeries and learn what they have to share.

p
If you decide to work with the oracles, find some that speak to you. Remember: it’s not the cards in themselves that have the power—it’s your energy and your intention that give them the power to work within you.
