This past weekend I shared with my teenage son that I felt inspired to share angel card readings. In fact, I had already done a few readings and really enjoyed them!
‘You’re doing what, mom? Are you like the fortuneteller in the movies?” My son shook his head, smiled at me and went back into his room.
Over the years he has seen his mom- who trained as a pediatrician- stepping out of the traditional medical role many, many times. Integrative pediatrician, homeopathic doctor, yoga instructor, meditation teacher. All have been stepping stones that led me to where I am currently- a writer, and coach for inner peace- guiding clients along the inner journey of the mind as they negotiate outer emotional and/ or physical health challenges.
What do angel cards have to do with inner peace and healing?
In our daily lives, and especially during the holidays, we become so busy with “doing” and “going’’ and “coming” that we often have little time to sit and be still and connect to our inner wisdom. In fact, whenever I feel external or internal pressure to “get more things done,” I have learned that this usually means I need to actually slow down more!
I practice and share many tools with my clients that can help us pause during the day, so we can reconnect to the inner reservoir of love and light within us- and then share and extend that in our daily lives. This includes music, meditation, movies, chanting, prayer, journaling, joining with mighty companions as well as physical activity like walking, yoga and being in nature.
Angel card readings are simply another tool to help connect to the inner wisdom in a way that is playful, easy and fun! For me, the angels are a symbol of the divine support and guidance that is available to each of us whenever we feel lost, confused, scared or simply stuck- and need a way-shower. The cards do not have any special power. Nor do I have any special “psychic” abilities. Rather, the power lies in the joining between the client and me. During a reading, I invite us both to connect to the inner wisdom and invite this loving and gentle presence to guide us. The cards simply reflect this deeper wisdom.
Is this a way to predict the future?
I don’t offer these readings to predict anything or “see” into the future. At Coaching for Inner Peace, my sincere desire is to help each of us feel fully guided, supported and anchored in the present moment. The angels and the readings are beautiful, playful and fun symbols that allow us to see our life challenge differently- hopefully with more ease, less stress and even a healthy dose of angelic humor and laughter!
What does a reading look like?
At present, I am inspired to offer two levels of readings: 15- and 30-minute. We can connect via phone or via internet (zoom). Prior to a reading, I will spend a few minutes in silence and light a candle. My prayer is simply this: may this reading be truly helpful and healing to the client. May the client leave with a sense of greater clarity and comfort- knowing that they are never alone and there is much love and light along their path. Then, I invite the client to relax into the present moment and share their question or the area in their lives where they desire guidance or clarity. I then shuffle the cards and choose ten cards as it feels guided and inspired. Sometimes, cards seem to just “fall” and even “fly” out of the deck; to me this is just so cool and amazing! It’s like our inner wisdom is always talking to us, saying, “Listen, listen. I’m here for you. I love you!”
I then share the message in the cards- which again is simply a reflection of the guidance that can be accessed with the power of joining. Each time, I am so amazed and grateful for the gift of healing that occurs when we join together with honesty and transparency- with a sincere desire for guidance, clarity and support along our path.
