Weekend Divination Cards - Friday 22nd November 2013

Good morning!

I am running very late this morning - it's one of those days when you start doing one thing, get side-tracked, and side-tracked again and again!

Determined to get the blog done before lunch - so here we go!

Several years ago - actually in 2004 - I came up with a little deck of cards, which I called "Spirit Inspiration Cards" - just a small set of cards which I printed myself and put in a pretty organza bag.

The idea was to shuffle the cards, pick at least one - preferably three - and endeavour to carry out the task on the card within one week.

I designed these cards as a sort of teaching, healing and meditation deck, with very simple tasks, inspired by Spirit.

I've decided to draw 3 cards on a Friday and if you like, you can try to carry out at least one of the 'tasks' over the weekend.

Here's the first one I pulled - which really follows the theme of my cards this week and is about giving thanks!


Make someone's day by praising them for a job well done! Let them know they are loved and appreciated.

Give them a few words of encouragement, acknowledge their efforts and praise their accomplishment. You will be giving that person a wonderful gift :)

The second card is 'Think only happy thoughts'


It's not always easy to think happy and positive thoughts when dealing with the things life throws at you every day - however, the more you focus on negative things the more you attract these situations into your life.

Make a conscious effort to cancel out your negative thoughts with happy, positive thoughts and you will see your life start to change little by little.

Look for the positive and as you focus on the good things in your life, you will start to attract more good, positive and happy experiences.

The third card is "Take a walk in the park, listen to the birds and hug a tree!"


Taking a walk is a great way to unwind and get away from things for a few moments.

If, while you are walking, you make the conscious effort to shut out your thoughts and listen to, and observe, nature - you will find it very calming.

If you are in a busy town or city, try to shut out the sounds of passing traffic, look to the sky, see the clouds moving, birds flying, listen to the sound of the wind, or perhaps rain - walking in the rain (when suitably attired!) can be cleansing - depending on your thinking...

Even if you are not physically able to carry out this task, for whatever reason - you don't live near a park, or you can't get outside - you can still accomplish it because the imagination is a wonderful thing!

Sit in a quiet room, with no distractions, close your eyes and visualise a walk in the park! Maybe a park you have visited in the past - or the park of your dreams?!

Use all your senses to see, hear, smell, feel and experience a wonderful, relaxing walk in nature. See the beauty all around, hear the sounds of nature, the birds, the bees, smell the flowers, feel the warmth of the sun on your face, hug a tree!

You will feel wonderful afterward and guess what? You've been meditating!

If you decide to carry out any of the above and want to share about your experiences then please feel free to go to The Daily Divination Facebook page and leave a comment under one of the posts :)

Well it's almost lunchtime - cutting it very fine today!

Please find your card and message below and whatever your star sign - have a wonderful weekend :)

Brightest Blessings,

This week I am using the 

The Answer Is Simple Oracle Cards

by Sonia Choquette

Quoted from the pack: "These Oracle cards provide immediate access to your divine Spirit, where you receive specific guidance for any and all challenges facing you in life. Each card not only offers direction for particular proplems, it also reinforces the path to your Higher Self, freeing you from the turbulence and fear of the ego plane.

You can use this deck (and the accompanying guide book) for specific direction, meditation, and life and purpose readings and to offer guidance to others; as well as to connect to your Divine Self, where drama and stress give way to joy and inner peace.

My personal card for today:

Fill the Well 

Full meaning:

The answer is simple: FILL THE WELL - Your inner light is dim right now. Your body is exhausted, your emotions are overwhelmed, and your mind is working overtime… all of which lock your Spirit out. You may not even know it because your ego prides itself on racing on a treadmill of fear without a break. Yet whether your ego knows it or not, you’re about to run out of fuel. So guess what? It’s time to gas up and receive nurturing.

Reach out and ask for love and support from others. It can be as simple as asking a friend to invite you to dinner, making a request for your partner to give you a foot rub, booking an appointment at the local spa and having a hot-stone massage, or going to the park and playing with your dog. The key is allowing others to help restore your balance.

This isn’t the time to do it yourself. Your well is dry, and you need the energy of your soul family and friends to revive yourself. Your Spirit comfortably and without hesitation asks for support and nurturing. Only the ego resists, but remember that it was your ego that got you in this place of depletion in the first place. Besides, others would be delighted to nurture you.

A word of caution: Don’t set yourself up for failure by asking those more depleted than you to do the nurturing. This, too, is a trap laid by the ego to keep you isolated and unsupported. Go to sources clearly available, such as a massage therapist, a friend who wants to take you to a concert or a baseball game, or a qualified counsellor.

To receive nurturing ensures that the light of your Spirit remains bright. This not only helps you… it helps the world to.

Today's cards for each of the star signs:
Due to lack of time, etc. These are the 'quick reading' messages - for the full reading and meaning of the cards you will need to obtain these cards for yourself - or get someone else to buy them for you as a gift!

Here are your messages and insights for today. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...

Listen to the Music 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: LISTEN TO THE MUSIC - The bridge to heaven is music, and right now your Spirit is calling you to enjoy its benefits. Don’t allow your ego to diminish its benefits. Don't allow your ego to diminish its importance to your Spirit or cut off from its fuel - music not only regenerates your body, it also raises your vibration and fills your heart with joy and enthusiasm. Turn on the music to gain access to your Higher Self and the Divine Plane of inspiration now. Music will calm the moment. As you listen to it, the heavenly forces will work on your behalf to bring about joyful resolution and a peaceful outcome.

Thank God 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: THANK GOD - The ego focuses on lack and therefore creates it. The Spirit concentrates on the endless stream of gifts God gives us and thus creates that. This is because the greatest blessing the Divine bestows on us is the ability to create what we focus on. Pay attention to all that God gives and you get more; focus on lack and you get less. Thank God throughout the day and you will be blessed with abundance. Offer gratitude for being alive, for the opportunities at hand, and for your challenges and ability to find solutions. Give thanks for your health, your life, your family, and your friends. Show appreciation for your blessings before they arrive. Your ego can discover how to attract flow and abundance if it joins with your Spirit in giving thanks to God for everything to day.

Keep Dancing 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: KEEP DANCING - Your Spirit is alive and well and making a healing difference in your life. You’re flying high and getting higher. Right now the only thing to focus on is doing what you’re doing. Your spirit is dancing with life, who is a willing partner. You’ll continue to see your success grow, your personal joy expand, and your abundance overflow as long as you keep on dancing with life. The more you dance, the more fully your spirit becomes embodied and the more directly it can lead you toward your goal. Keep up the rhythm and flow.

Reclaim Your Art 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: RECLAIM YOUR ART - Every Spirit is an artist, and without art, it has no way to express itself. Let your creative Spirit speak: Write a poem. Paint a picture. Get out the watercolours and make a card. Take a beautiful photo. Play music. Create a gourmet meal or plant a garden. If you’re comfortable in one art form, try another. Get to know your Spirit through your own artistic experimentation. Enjoy your creativity for yourself. Your controlling ego will try to tell you that art is a waste of time and has no value. This suffocates your Spirit and sucks the joy out of your being. Silence the critical ego and hear your Spirit through some form of art today… yes, today.

Quick message:

The answer is simple: REBEL - It’s time for your Spirit to rebel from your ego and take charge of your life. There’s no one to answer to but your Higher Self. It’s time to let go of all past authority figures who still run your inner world, and allow your Spirit to step into command. Be free of the fear you carry over from the past. Call to mind all those ghosts from years ago who scared you into submission with their disapproval and threats. Line them up, one by one, in your mind’s eye, and see them shrinking down to human size. You answer only to God and your personal truth. The only question now is:What is your personal truth? Listen to your Spirit for the answer, and fearlessly follow this as your ultimate authority.

You are Safe 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: YOU ARE SAFE - The ego torments you with fears of danger and keeps your attention on patrolling the borders of your life, expecting an ambush at any moment. This is stressful and frightening and allows you no room to relax. The Spirit, on the other hand, surrounds you in a powerful and protective shield of light, alerting you to real danger far before it presents itself, and moving you gracefully away before it shows up; therefore you can relax your fears and allow your attention to rest. Breathe in deeply and recognize how much fear you carry. As you exhale, send the anxiety out of your body and replace it with a second inhalation of protective, loving light. You are safe. Your Spirit is formidable and can be counted on to protect you, so you needn’t fear a thing. Don’t allow your ego to steal away another moment’s peace. You are safe.

Decide the Outcome 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: DECIDE THE OUTCOME - The greatest expression of Spirit is to fully embrace your creative power and use it. The ego denies that you have any and falls into the trap of feeling like a victim. This leaves you with a sense of being hopelessly at the mercy of fate and without choice. The Spirit, on the other hand, not only knows that it’s a Divine Creator… it actively directs your creative power every day toward satisfying goals. Plan your future based on your decisions, rather than dreading it based on your fears. Visualise how your goals will manifest. Expect good things to come, and know that they’re on the way. As a creative and holy being, intend what you want and expect it - now.


Quick message:

The answer is simple: STOP - The ego is running wild with confusion, causing unnecessary stress and leading you in the wrong direction. Presently you’re at risk of overreacting to things and are making poor decisions. You may feel threatened, defensive, or angry or feel the need to try too hard to please others. No matter how this runaway fear is manifesting, it’s time to stop. In spite of appearances you are causing your greatest troubles, and no one else. Doing nothing doesn’t mean nothing is being done. The Universe will right any imbalance as soon as you stop making waves.

Reach Out 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: REACH OUT - It’s time to open your heart and arms and touch others with your Spirit. Your ego is putting up a defensive shield, having you believe that there are enemy forces out there from which you must be protected and withdraw. Your Spirit, however, knows that there’s no “them” to defend against - there are just “us” beautiful souls needing to be loved… and right now, needing your love. Your Spirit wants you to connect with others now. Unfold your arms, turn toward those around you, and reach out. Your love and healing forces are needed . Trust yourself to make a difference, and connect.

Clean Up Your Mess 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: CLEAN UP YOUR MESS - The ego is a prideful entity and doesn’t want to acknowledge that it can be hurtful or cause injury. Because of that, it can do great damage again and again. In fact, the ego can be so self-involved that it may not even be aware that it’s causing trouble, other than to notice the distancing, rejection, anger and sadness that it invokes from others. As you can see, the ego causes damage to others’ Spirits. Therefore, this not only hurts them, it hurts your Spirit as well. This is a time to rein in your ego and set things right. What pain has yours inflicted lately, whether on others or yourself? All things can be healed if only you’re willing to clean up the mess you’ve made of them.

Turn On the Light 

Quick message:

The answer is simple: TURN ON THE LIGHT - Look to your life with the eyes of your Spirit, not your ego. The ego points out your flaws; your Spirit concentrates on your perfection. The ego sees everything as your failure; your Spirit sees it as process and progress. The ego views itself as separate and alone; the Spirit knows itself to be connected to all and an essential part of the whole. The ego see darkness; the Spirit sees light. If you look with the light of your Spirit, you’ll clearly make out that all is well. Your ego can’t see past its own fears, so all appears dark. Your Spirit turns on the light and thus perceives the value of all your experiences - with it on, you can see that it’s all good.

Take a Breather
Quick message:

The answer is simple: TAKE A BREATHER - Your ego is making you overwork. Remember that it will never be fully satisfied with what you accomplish and will always create the feeling that you must do more. Right now the best way to reconnect with your Spirit is to step back and catch your breath. Although it may feel as though life will fall apart if you do this, that’s not true. You’ll simply disconnect from the false urgencies of the ego and realign with a higher vibration. Once reconnected to your Spirit, you’ll find that there’s always more than enough time to do what’s important. To take a breather is to have faith in the Divine order of life, God is in charge, so you don’t have to work overtime.
