How to conduct a reading:

  1. Clear your physical and mental space with an Opening Ritual. All rituals are just an habitual set of actions that help you focus your mind on what you’re doing. The more your give power to your opening rituals, the more concentration you will have and the more clear your messages will be. The ritual you choose doesn’t need to be elaborate, it can simply be lighting some candles, doing some breathing and maybe an opening prayer. Some people likes to clear the air with essential oils, sage or incense. Do whatever you feel drawn to and gives you peace and happiness.

  2. Call your guides to your side. It’s a simple step, but so often overlooked. Call your Guides to your side and ask that they, and only they, answer your questions through the cards. This can be included in your opening prayer.

  3. The clearer the question is the clearer the answer will be. In forming your question, try to avoid asking Yes-No questions, as they leave your Guides little room to open your mind to new ideas. Instead, ask to be shown the likely results of a particular action, or the understanding needed to deal with a situation effectively. Ask to be shown someone’s true character or real intent. You can also ask where your true joy lies or what is blocking it.

  4. Get the Message. Be open to what you receive and trust that your guides know what you really need. Pay attention to what you hear, feel, see, know, and smell. Once you start the reading, everything is part of it, even if the mailman knocks on your door.

  5. Give thanks, and find peace in the love your guides have for you. Regardless of the challenges you face or whatever drama is playing out on the stage of your life, you can always be glad that your guides are at your side to help you through it.
