Oracle – Call of wisdom 

I hadn’t been here long and I was a fairly newcomer to the United States. But I was here long enough and had taught myself English to the point where I was more comfortable with speaking it. Understanding it was always simpler then to formulate and arrange the words in a sentence structure that made sense and of course it was backwards compared to the German grammar. It was the weekend and I still remember crystal clear that off we went to attend a car show. I couldn’t tell you about the cars or even which town the show was in, but what stands out so clear, was a palm reader that was sitting at her stand, a short distance from me. I was intrigued and I watched. I remember feeling drawn to the stand and after awhile I got all my courage together and indeed walked over to her and sat down. Without speaking a single word, she told me things about my sick grandfather oversees, amongst other personal tidbits she could have not possible guessed out of sheer luck. Remember I didn’t talk and did not give away any clues that could help and promote a lucky guess. What stands out was the accuracy of her words and still years later I’m a believer, willing to convince the skeptics based on my personal experience. 

This was the only time I had a interaction with a physic medium, but I have always been intrigued. The thoughts about it have come and gone over the years until recently. Something stronger is urging me and I feel a pull towards Tarot/Oracle as if the cards have something to tell me. It’s been a few months and not only do I want to inquire more but I also want to learn of how to read and interpret the cards. How to use them, what ritual is followed, how do I understand their meaning and where do I start. I did some research and the information as well as cards available is simply overwhelming. I learned that oracle cards are suppose to be easier to learn, especially if you are a beginner compared to the often more complex Tarot cards. So naturally I decided to pursue a oracle deck. I further learned that most decks are accompanied with a guide book, explaining the card as well as their potential meaning. What a relief and luckily it was one more question to check off of my long list of curiosities. 

Further I choose watching a YouTube video that introduced five beginner decks with explanations as to why they were chosen. I found it most helpful in making a decision and I finally took the plunge, placing an order on Amazon, of which I’m fevering towards the arrival. My decision was in part based on the artwork which is important to me as an artist. I’m a visual person and appreciate intricate detail. The other determining factor was the subject matter itself of which the cards revolved around. That was a tough one in the sense of not being able to narrow it down to just one deck and I ended up ordering two. Just in case the one doesn’t speak to me and so I will have a backup. Right, I don’t even know what I’m talking about, but I have heard of building a relationship with the deck, feeling the energy from the cards and utilizing the messages as a guide. I have to admit I’m beyond excited and I can’t wait to hold them in my hands. To study the pictures and learn about their meaning, to perform a reading and to be astonished once more by the accuracy and the wisdom of the divine. Plus it’s my birthday next month, so perhaps an early birthday gift to myself? 😉
The two decks I choose are: 
The first deck is called Earth Magic by Steven D Farmer

With my love for nature, hiking and the Earth, it only seemed like a natural choice. 

The second deck is called The enchanted Map by Colette Baron-Reid

It is suppose to connect to your larger consciousness as you travel the journey of your life. A map that empowers you to understand the story of your fate, destiny and free will, while allowing you to chart a course to live a life of deep purpose, true prosperity and vibrant love. 

There was also a beautiful Steampunk Tarot deck and a Fairy oracle deck that is for now on my wishlist. Two decks will be plenty to start out with as I’m learning the meaning of the cards and wonder if it is normal to have or want multiple decks. I would love to hear your input if you have any experience with this. Xoxo

I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. The connection has to be there. Had you picked runes, you would have been advised to make your own out of earthy materials: wood pebbles, rocks…
    With tarot, and I imagine Oracle, learning the meaning of each card is just the beginning. They can have many meanings and the interpretation will come from your relationship with them, what they tell you and only you.
    I can’t read tarot. I’m a very beginner rune reader. It is very broken still and I go back to the book a lot so it takes me ages to read anything. Maybe if I dedicated more time to it, I’d be more advanced. 😬😬🙈🙈
    You will feel the connection when it’s found. Good luck!
    By the way, I had a lovely encounter with a ladybug today. She has made me very happy after a crappy weekend.

    1. Wow this is so intriguing and interesting, I never heard of runes before. Thank you so much for your input, I seem to soak up every bit of information like a hungry student ready to learn. I can’t wait to hold the deck and see if there will be a connection, a certain energy that speaks to me. In reality I don’t know what to expect and I’m merely speculating.
      I’m sorry about the crappy weekend but I’m so delighted you are noticing all the little spirits around you lately and perhaps allow them to guide you in some way if you see it fit. Xo 😉

      1. I love Norse Mythology and that’s where runes come from. It was a big part of Viking culture, when they even cast readings with twigs. That’s why my tattoos go that way too and I may even incorporate some runes into it. 😊 Good luck with your findings!

  2. Both of those decks look intriguing. I bought Tarrot cards and had a difficult time feeling comfortable figuring them out, even though my grandmother was a great reader of them. I opted for angel oracle cards as my first deck, and fell in love with them!

  3. Hi, I own some decks of tarot and some sets of oracle cards.( and also an I-Tjing). With the ebs and flows of my life with their different questions it differs which one I use to open up to the answers allready there. One thing both tarot-decks and oracle-decks do have in common, they work best if they are ‘shielded’ against outside influences when not in use. So all my decks are wrapped in thin silk and than put in their boxes. I was thaught ( some 50 yrs ago now) that by shielding them from daily life the deck does recognise you sooner and talks more clearly to you.
    Ofcourse no deck is alive realy, so there is no recognition from their part. But like all not living things they can store all kinds of energy. And when being shielded with silk ( cotton will do the job also, but it is thicker and some decks won’t fit in their box anymore), being shielded from the going-ons of daily life, they are more pure and a better receiver for your focused thoughts.

    1. Hi Cecile, thank you so much for your wonderful advice and I truly appreciate your time as I’m just a beginner. I have some older silk scarves that I think will do the trick and I can’t wait for the decks to arrive. I feel so excited, like a kid and as if I could already sense something, a energy or connection that is on the way to me. Thank you so much for taking the time. I appreciate you and hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs
