My son, Nick and I met up a few weeks ago. I was staying with friends near Atlanta and we wanted to get together to take a hike but the weather wasn’t cooperating.
We met at Biscuits & More (it’s a southern thing, vegans – don’t ask). We didn’t want to sit inside since it was a bit crowed so we got our biscuits to go and sat in the car together in the parking lot.
The rain was pinging lightly on the roof and made for a cozy intimate atmosphere. We got into a deep conversation about how he was doing after graduating from college and then getting laid off in a corporate layoff from a company where he thought he had a future as an engineer. Throw in a little roommate discontent and it was a rich adulting kind of conversation.
Then he asked me if I brought the cards? Yes, of course, I did. We have created as a part of our connection a ritual of pulling a card from a card deck when we get together. I had my new Destiny cards and was ready!.
He pulled a card: fog. Of course, it was the perfect card for this rainy day and also for where he was in his life path. He was holding onto the dream of a bright future and yet, the path was pretty foggy.
It opened up the conversation into an even deeper sharing and validating his thoughts and inner wisdom.
It’s so heart-moving to let the card be an invitation to help him open up to his wisdom and express his thoughts. And for me too, to share things with Nick that I haven’t before. We were moving past the mom-son relationship and into relating to each as adults and humans.
Yes, the fog moved and he has clearer skies with a new job, new apartment and has moved out of state! Now we facetime and still bring in a card every now and then. It’s sweet. It’s heart expansive. It more real and authentic.
That my friends, is the power of Oracle cards.
I’m such a huge fan of card decks of all types to foster creativity, expansive thoughts and deeper connections and conversations.
PLUS, it’s a great way to get your signature work into the world and reinforce your brand.
That’s why I am hosting the Queen of Card Decks, Rosie Battista, in a webinar this Thursday to tell us all about card decks!
Let’s get your creativity and business smarts flowing together!
