It’s time to feel confident using your oracle deck! You can get wonderful guidance without knowing anything about oracle cards.

Before every reading you do, get very clear on your question. Sit in the energy of what you’re asking about. If you’re confused, allow yourself to feel the confusion. If you’re curious about an outcome, stay in that energy of curiosity as you shuffle the cards.

Decide ahead of time how you’re going to choose your cards. Will you shuffle and simply open the deck in the middle? Will you choose 3 cards from the top of the deck? There’s no right or wrong. Just decide what you are going to do, and then do it.

While shuffling and sitting in the energy of your question, begin to direct your question toward your spirit guides, angels, God, Universe — whatever it is that gives you comfort. You can also ask your higher self or intuition. Ask for guidance in your own words. There’s no right or wrong way to do this.

“Spirit guides, please guide me to the perfect answers that exist inside this deck.”

“Angels, what do I need to know about my situation?”

“Higher Self, what needs to shift so I can manifest the outcome I want to create?”

Look at the picture on the card and see what messages, if any, you receive before you read the card description. Trust yourself to get the message. You are smart and wise and know yourself. Deep down, you already know the answers anyway. You’re just using cards to validate what you already know!

You can pull a card as many times as you need to. If you try this and don’t get an answer or card that you understand, try again. Say, “Spirit guides, I need more guidance. That didn’t help me. Please help me get an answer from this deck that relates to my situation.”

As you practice, you’ll start to feel confident in your ability to decipher messages inside your oracle cards.

I hope this helps you gain the confidence to give yourself readings.
