When Nature Speaks To You
First introduce yourself to the cards. Either by holding them near your heart or 3rd eye and stating your full name. These are guides, so they need to know whom they are talking to.
Next ground yourself (if doing reading for other’s ground them too)
Ask your question either out loud, in your mind or in your heart. Yes or No questions will not be answered. It could be simply “What is my lesson for the day?”
Lay out all cards and with your left hand (closest to your heart) pull one card. Or shuffle the cards to one falls out or feel that one has a message for you. It is recommended to meditate on it for 9 minutes, that's not required but does give the guide time to connect with you. Allow the guide in the picture to give you an answer. This would be ideal to use before yoga, a hike or any spiritual activity.
You may also use the cards as an oracle deck and do full spreads- letting each card tell their own story. Use the cards as they speak to you! No right or wrong way to use them.
How did the cards come about?
On Jan 1, 2018 I was part of an amazing silent meditation on a Super Moon. During the meditation one of my guides told me to look at Nature to get answers for our questions. Over and over I heard stop using old ways that are covered in shadow. I knew that I had to create something else we can use that is based in love and nature.
From this message I have selected 88 of my favorite magical images of nature. These are my own photographs- except 2 images which I was present at both- one image is the Universe taken by Shane Hammond, my husband and other is The Moon- a Super Moon image that Pedro Lucero took in Sedona. All other images were taken from my heart from various places in the United States- Lily Dale Assembly in New York, The Stupa in Sedona, Florida's sunrise, vortexes in Joshua Tree, The Great Sequoia portals in Kings Canyon and New Orleans City Park.
The cards are pictures of beings of nature that speak to you directly, the Standing People (trees) are our antennas to the universe, the Stone People are some of the oldest beings on this planet, the Plant People teach us of scared geometry, the Sky People show us a bigger perspective and the Water People remind us to flow or be reflective. Let them communicate directly to you over any questions you may have.
I am very excited and honor to present "When Nature Speaks To You" it truly is a meditative deck of natural guides. They are here for you and are ready to help you expand!
With Love and Light
This is your flower you are holding
Bright with light and love
Petals like fingers
Open and explore ways to God
No one path opposing another
No one petal opposing another
Bring authentic joy and cheer
that comes from the surrender
of knowing that all is well
You are on a journey
with unexpected sources of learning
Find joy and acceptance
of the moment by moment exploration
of time as it unfolds
much like the opening of this flower
Like the many petals
there will be many openings
Allow your inner guidance and helpers
to help you choose as you make your way
One day you will come upon a field
of these flowers and know
that so many of these were here
all the time
unfolding for you
"I have personally previewed and been using this meditation deck and it is AMAZING. I have seen faces in most images and gotten messages from my meditations. I too moved toward more positive oracles. I actively release and eliminate fear from my experiences. I hope some of you will enjoy these too."
