“Mysticism is in fact the only criticism people cannot level against my theory.” ~Albert Enstein

When I was 28 years old I was at a family gathering. My sister and her husband showed up with a deck of Egyptian Cartouche cards. They were divination cards, similar to Tarot cards. They were playing with them, trying to do a reading, and then handed them to me to try out. Well, I started reading the cards and it was like I had done it for years. I felt an energy come over me as you would when you are completely engrossed in a creative project. They couldn’t understand how I was doing it and neither could I. After a little while my sister’s husband said, “You’re on fire. Keep the cards.” So began my life long activity of card reading.
Why was I able to use the cards so easily the first time I tried them? I don’t know. Perhaps because I was open to the idea. Perhaps because I had been meditating and was open to the Collective Consciousness more than a lot of people. Whatever the reason it was a whole new interesting growth experience for me.
Divination cards are filled with archetypal symbolism which, even if you don’t understand the cards, works within your subconscious to facilitate growth. The more I used the cards the more I was open to messages for the people I was reading. I’ve had some interesting experiences with the cards. One woman asked if she could ask a question of the cards without saying it aloud to me. I told her we would give it a try.
When I laid out the cards for her I suddenly got a vision of two dogs driving in a convertible. Both of the dogs were dressed up, really dressed up. The male dog was driving and the female in the passenger seat. I remember that she was wearing a polka dot scarf and sunglasses. They were very happy. Now I was a little wary of telling my client this. It sounded crazy, but I try not to edit what I see, so I told her. She said. “If you hadn’t told me that I wouldn’t have believed a word you said.” She went on to tell me that she and her son had each had a dog and on Sundays they would dress them up and take them out for a drive in the car. The dogs had both passed away. They had come into my consciousness to let her know they were fine and having fun. How strange is that?
A few years after I started reading cards a new friend said that she thought I would like channeling. Channeling is communicating with those who have passed on. I said I would give it a try. We set up a date with two of my friends and her. She said a little prayer of protection before we started. Then she told us to close our eyes and that if anything came up, even if we didn’t know who it was for, to share it. I almost immediately had a vision of an older couple. I spoke up and said that I thought they were here to see my friend, N. I described them physically and told her they were standing in front of some very dense woods. I also said that I thought the woods meant something. She said that the physical description sounded like her aunt and uncle. I gave her their message that even though they fought like cats and dogs when they were alive that they were very happy now. The messages did not come in words, just a knowing of what they wanted conveyed. N said that was exactly what they were like. I reiterated a couple of times that I thought the dense growth of trees meant something. I went on to tell her a few more things that they wanted to say. Then they left. Right after that a little Jack Russell Terrier started barking at an open door. I told N that the dog was here and that he was very excited to see her. She responded that they had owned a Jack Russell terrier and that it must be their dog. I once more brought up the trees and N said, “Well, their last name is Forest.” Then I knew that they had been trying to tell me their name.
N then shared a visit with the father of the woman who had brought us together. She told her her father’s name and that he had succumbed to lung disease. She said she saw him with an inhaler. This was all true.
Amazing things happen in this world of material substance. We so often only trust what we can discern with our five senses and write off anything we can’t prove. Even though most people have experienced moments of foresight they are still unwilling to entertain the idea of our ability to go beyond the physical plane while still living in it, As William Shakespeare said, “There are more things in heaven and earth, dear Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
Albert did not believe in any of this stuff. He would be surprised to see where his equation has brought the understanding of energy and matter. He began something with his theories that would probably confound him now! The ideas of a holographic universe. The concept of energy in the form of thoughts, emotions, and imagination producing matter. All of these leaps of the mind and consciousness that have become more accepted because of his theory. Wow. Thanks, Albert. Even if you didn’t believe it, you helped to realize an expanding awareness in the world, a whole new way of looking at God-consciousness.
I have had experiences with precognition. I’ve had experiences with spirits. If I had a closed mind I wouldn’t have been open to these encounters.
I think that divination cards are a useful tool. The symbols and archetypes contained in them work on a subconscious level to bring us to a higher awareness. They work in a very similar way to dreams. I would recommend that anyone picks up a deck of these cards to use daily. It is not necessary to learn how to read the cards. I would just pull a “random” card from the deck every day, study the card and read the description in the book. Most decks come with a guide. The cards, even though you “randomly” selected them, will not be random. Even if you see no connection between the card and what is happening in your life, there is a connection. You could ask a question before pulling out a card. You will get a card that will help enlighten you on the issue.
I would suggest the Angel cards of Doreen Virtue. They are very uplifting and give great insight into your life. I own the Archangel Oracle Cards, but she has many other decks that would be wonderful. Any deck you see that resonates with you is perfect. If you have any recommendations please leave them in the comments.
Don’t doubt that you can do anything, you are connected to the All. Be open to anything. Visit with friends and family passed. They often visit in your dreams to let you know they’re okay. Sometimes they will tell you that they’ve been away and are having a great time. We see images that work with our physical reality, but their message is often that they are in a place so beautiful and amazing that they can’t describe it in our earthly terms, only in our “symbolic language.” Be at peace concerning those who have passed on. They are happy. Believe me. I get messages of joy with everyone who visits me who has passed, including animal companions. The biggest messages are joy and complete freedom beyond any definition we have here. An unlimited joyful, exuberance that can’t really be described. They’re in heaven!
Open your mind to all possiblities and everything is possible.
Some impossibly wonderful affirmations:
- I have powers of cognition beyond my five physical senses.
- I am connected to source.
- I am one with the intelligence of the universe.
- I go forward in courage knowing that I intuitively choose right action through my connection to source.
- We are all one in spirit.
Remember times when you knew what was going to happen, or a dream you had about someone you loved who died and came to visit you. Think of times when you knew things that you had no reason to know. You have great gifts, open your mind to receive them.
