Find out why I’m so obsessed with using angel cards, how to use them and how to make your very own deck.
I can’t exactly remember when my dad first showed me Angel Cards. All I can remember is our little tradition of selecting 3 each year on New Year’s Day. Since then, I’ve founds so much joy, truth and reflection in using these little cards to guide my days and years.
What Are Angel Cards?
Angel cards, or at least the kind that I’m sharing, are a deck of cards with words of guidance. You can use them to help find signs, meaning or guidance. You can get some pretty snazzy decks with illustrations and all that jazz. The kind I use are really simple and just have the words of guidance on them.
How Do You Use Them
There are no hard and fast rules. I use them when I’m looking for a little extra guidance, reflection and introspection. You can ask a question then pick a card. You can pick a card before you meditate and use it as an intention. Personally, every year I choose 3 to guide the year. Usually I’ll choose them, write them down and kind of set-and-forget the magic. Or I’ll choose one to guide my day.
Sometimes the words instantly resonate and other times it takes time to reveal their meaning and purpose. I remember picking my words last year (2016) and thinking “oh that’s nice.” Looking back now they are so eerily resonant for the year.
If you’re curios, this year I got: transformation, trust and harmony. I think I’m especially curious about harmony. I love the idea of using harmony instead of balance. Balance can sometimes feel calculated or like a perfect division of life, but harmony feels more ebb and flow, more synchronous. Anyways, them’s me words.
So to really answer the question – you can use them whenever you want to feel guided. That could be every day, in big moments, once a year, whenever you meditate, the sky’s the limits.
