We are using Oracle cards in today's yoga class as a means of focus and bringing attention to something in our present that we may be overlooking. Oracle cards, unlike Tarot cards, do not predict or foresee your personal past, present and future issues. Instead, they help direct you on your current path. You may choose a card that merely asks you to think about its meaning as your day progresses. Or maybe you turn a card and know instantly what the card is referring to. Or it is possible that the card gives you direction in answering questions you may have.
Oracle cards are to be looked at as fun and insightful. They come in a myriad of themes and artistic decks so choose a deck that appeals to you!
I always receive the question, "Can't every card apply to everyone?" My response is this: I believe the Universe leads you to choose the card you are supposed to choose on any given day. But for the skeptics, I ask you to consider this. Let's imagine I bring a deck in which every single card says devotion (I just pulled that card from a deck). And let's assume I am the only one who knows that every card is the same. Yes, each person can apply the word devotion to their lives but the important aspect being missed is that the word means and represents something different to each one of us...and that is how it helps take our focus to an aspect of each of our individual lives.
