Your Card Reading – What wisdom do these cards hold for you?


We are at an exciting juncture on our spiritual journey! There is a fork in the road that presents a choice for all of us. We can remain comfortable and continue this journey centred primarily in the physical world and our first three chakras. Or, we can choose to let go and make ourselves available to the mystery of a greater consciousness, greater intelligence, greater power and a greater love. This is the invisible world of energy accessible through our spiritual senses located in the four upper chakras. Our challenge is….


Can we shift our consciousness from the physical 5 sensory world we know so well, to a different world inside our being that we can sense but cannot see?


This question is difficult to get our head around because we are so comfortable in the 5 sensory physical world of form. How do we let go and make room for this greater awareness to begin to operate, guide and motivate us toward a deeper consciousness that does not happen at the level of our feelings? The Faith, Chakras and Compassion cards showed up to escort us as we stumble, stroll or jump onto this new path that elevates us into the worlds of energy and grace.


Faith is a mystical jewel from the soul that bridges our physical and energetic worlds.

It is our steadfast belief in a power and intelligence of Life that is greater than us. Faith is the foundation we need to navigate this mysterious invisible world we sense but cannot see. We are somewhat familiar with this world because we have all experienced it. It is the home of our intuition, imagination, creativity, emotions, inspiration, synchronicity, compassion, deeper truth, inner wisdom and much more. Our challenge is, even though we can name and have experienced many of these things, we don’t have the tools, depth or language to explore and access these powerful jewels from the soul. I call these jewels our soul senses.


Faith is activated by the elements of trust and surrender. We trust that life loves us and yearns for us to evolve and reach our highest potential in service to ourselves and others. Surrender is letting go of our personal agenda and the outcomes we think we can control to a Higher Power greater than us. (Use whatever word connects you with a power greater than you).

Surrender invites the space for our interior guidance system to open and we become more conscious of our thoughts, emotions, and reactions. We start to show up differently, directing our actions and reactions in ways that align with our higher potentials and the blueprint of our soul. When the doors of trust and surrender open, we sense a subtle shift and know that we are not alone. We have ignited a new partnership and begin to co-create our life with a Higher Power. Faith in ourselves, others and a Higher Power shifts our perceptions, energy and the trajectory of our life. We have stumbled onto our destiny path.



Opening Our Spiritual Senses


The Chakras card showed up to help us open our spiritual senses. Chakras 4, 5, 6, & 7 connect us to the invisible world of energy that we sense but cannot see.



Our 7th Chakra also our channels the collective and cosmic energies found in the 8, 9, & 10th chakras. These chakras align vertically above the crown of the head. They are transpersonal and transcendent in nature opening deeper levels of knowledge, information and wisdom that we are not consciously aware of. In other words, this is where the real mystery & magic happens.



“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience”. French philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Compassion in Action!


The Compassion card showed up to illustrate how these two worlds, the physical and energetic, work together. Compassion is a spiritual sense and a gift from the soul that flows through our heart. The great mystics, spiritual masters and sages taught that compassion is inherent within all of us and one of our finest qualities. Compassion is our innate ability to be deeply touched by the feelings or pain of those who are suffering. Our compassion often inspires us to act and assist those in need, including animals and nature. Our empathy and acts of kindness both large and small, leave us feeling fulfilled and exhilarated.


This card also reminds us to extend compassion to ourselves. Many of us have done a great deal of personal and spiritual work, yet we continue to feed our fears and treat ourselves with contempt and anger. We do this through negative self talk, holding on to old stories, limiting beliefs and hurtful emotions such as anger. We choose to act and react destructively towards ourselves emotionally and physically, repeating the same old patterns that continue to cause us pain. We often find it easier to extend compassion to others rather than ourselves.


Compassion is more than a feeling; it is also a grace that helps us work with our inner fears. A fear can be anything that takes away our power or weakens our spirit. When we turn towards our fears and hold them with loving kindness, we give them the space to transform, dissolve or to move on. Allow the grace of Compassion to flow through your heart and soul healing the old wounds and patterns that cause you to lose your power.


Everything that flows from our inner world is reflected in our outer world. You are a channel for grace. The grace of Compassion is always ready to flow from your soul and through your heart to open the doors of forgiveness, healing and love. When we heal ourselves, we heal the whole. When we heal the whole, we heal the world.


This is the Mystical Law of One. The card below has an important message for all of us. Now is the time through our Faith, Chakras (energy centers) and Compassion to put this law into action!




Stay safe & well!
