Weekly Wisdom: Soul Retrieval

Soul retrieval aids you in recovering a part of yourself that you have lost.

You are whole and no longer fragmented.

It is time to release old wounds and move forward.

If you feel as though you have compromised in a way that is not aligned with your true self and desires, it is time to course correct.

Honor yourself and your integrity, and do not sacrifice it for the good of someone else.

The best thing you can do for others, and for the world in general, is to be who you truly are, unapologetically.

Oracle & Tarot Cards

cardsblog.jpg

I’ve been into oracle cards for a while, and have also gotten into tarot within the past couple of years. As I explore different spiritual practices and tools, it’s fun to see what truly resonates with me, and what innate skills I have.

Hint: cards is one of them 😉

So if you’re not into cards or are a newb, you may not know the difference between oracle cards vs. tarot (cause I didn’t when I first started using them lol). Here’s the gist:

Oracle cards are less structured than tarot, and the types of cards and meanings can be wide and ranging and basically up to the creator of the deck.

Tarot, on the other hand, is more structured. There’s 78 cards in a deck, and the deck is split into major arcana (think major life milestones, bigger picture) vs. minor arcana cards (think daily, everyday moments or details). The minor arcana makes up the majority of the deck, and is split into four suits: cups, pentacles, swords, and wands.

TLDR: oracle cards have prescribed meanings, and tarot needs to be interpreted.

I use both types of cards in various ways, but as I develop my daily rituals and practices, I notice that I tend to resonate more with oracle cards and use them more than tarot. I use them for weekly wisdom, monthly wisdom, and various and daily pulls and spreads whenever I feel called. I also frequently feel called to randomly pull cards for others. For example, last Monday, I was calling it Mystical Messages Monday because spirit was nudging me to pull and interpret cards for a few people.

These are my favorite oracle decks:

The Starseed Oracle Deck by Rebecca Campbell

Mystical Shaman Oracle Cards by Alberto Villoldo, Colette Baron-Reid, & Marcela Lobos

Sacred Rebels Oracle Deck by Alana Fairchild

The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid

The Psychic Tarot Oracle Cards by John Holland

And this is my favorite tarot deck and tarot guide:

Golden Universal Tarot Deck and The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Card Readings by Brigit Esselmont

If you’re interested in cards, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the decks above. What I like to do is research decks online and pick the ones that call to me. Sometimes you may get a new deck and realize you just don’t have a connection with it and you need to find something else. That happened to me when I was picking my traditional tarot deck. I went with the widely used and recommended Rider Waite tarot deck and felt NO connection to it at all. I eventually heard of the golden universal deck, and felt very drawn to it, and since getting it, it definitely works waaaay better for me.

I’d love to know if you have a favorite deck to work with, or any recommendations around decks, spreads, guidebooks, and the like. Comment below to share 🙂

Channeled Message: Rest your weary soul

You are not a machine.


You are an infinite being dwelling in a limited vessel that needs rest, rejuvenation, and boundaries.


Although your mind may constantly jump from one thing to the next, and your body may follow, always on to the next to do, always adding more responsibilities and obligations to a never-ending list…


This is not the way you are meant to live.


This is a way of DOING directed by the mind. You must seek a way of BEING fueled by your soul.


Because even your soul can grow weary.


So take some time and space for yourself. Feel into what you need most – rest? Movement? Stillness? Energetic cleansing? Solitude? Expression?
What is your heart and soul calling you to do to reinvigorate your being?


Whatever it is – do that.


– Archangel Metatron


(As I dive deeper into channeling, I am starting to identify the messengers that send me this wisdom. It’s neat to see connections between who “says” what. For instance, Metatron is said to have been the only angel who incarnated as a human, so he would have some legit insight into the limits of the human body and overextending ourselves, yeah? 😉

March Wisdom: The Rainmaker

The Rainmaker is a master of manifestation. It speaks to the power of co-creation, especially when used with integrity.

This card is a message to create something new in your life, using what is already around you and within your day to day experience.

There are seeds that were planted in the past, and now it is time to harvest them.

Your external world is a mirror of your internal world. If you are seeking change or transformation in your external world, you must first go within and shift your internal intention and way of being.

Weekly Wisdom: Temptation

Although this world, and this life, is your playground, you must not become attached to outcomes or the material world.

This card is a reminder for you to check in with yourself and ask:

1) Are you too focused on the material right now?

2) Are you getting swept up in excess?

3) Do you find yourself falling into addictive behavior?

4) Are you obsessed with how things “should” go and then disappointed when the outcome does not meet your expectations?

It’s time to stop and reflect on how you are showing up right now in your life.

If you find yourself falling into the throes of temptation and attachment – ask yourself why.

What are you REALLY seeking right now?

And how can you fulfill that need within yourself, instead of looking outside of yourself and to the material world?

Always know that you have everything you need within you <3
