Hello and welcome to June’s Pick-A-Card reading. This month we’re connecting to angelic energies using Kyle Gray’s deck The Angel Guide Oracle. I just felt like we could all use a little bit of extra nurturing and love as we start this month off. I kept the question simple, just asking the angels what each of us needs to know this month. So let’s jump in and see what they have to say.
Our collective theme for the month—meaning this is the message for everyone—is Take a Step Back. Beautiful card with an angel in hooded cloak, purples and golds, and they’re holding their hand up in a pause gesture. This card is interesting because taking a step back at this point doesn’t necessarily mean stopping or not continuing on. What we need to know as a collective right now is that there has been so much going on, and we as a culture like to take action. We see something and we want to “fix” it, and while taking action is definitely important—especially when we see injustices in the world—taking just any action isn’t what makes real change happen. So, this applies to your personal life, as well as the collective.
What does this mean? It means that pausing before acting is critical right now. Becoming aware of where you are coming from, what your motivations are, your why, is key to making intentional action, which then is the key to making lasting change. So, before you jump into things this month take a moment to pause. Step back. Reflect. What are you bringing to the situation? What will your actions bring to the situation? And are those two things what you want to be bringing into the situation? Sometimes, the answer will be yes and sometimes, you’ll realize you’ve been triggered and need to sort through that first before deciding how to act.
Asking your Guardian Angel to help you with this would be a fantastic way to start off the month. Maybe create a prayer or intention to ask for this assistance. Something like:
Thank you so much for helping me slow down this month and give myself space to really reflect on the situation at hand. Thank you for helping me to make intentional actions that lead to lasting change, to help me think before I speak and do, and to help me see what I am bringing to the table. Thank you for helping me to remember to pause, step back and reflect.
And so it is.
You can use this prayer, but you may want to play with it and make it your own, too. I think when we write our own prayers, they are so much more powerful because they are coming from our heart and our soul voice.
Alright, time for the individual cards. If you haven’t yet, select card 1, 2, or 3 and then continue to listen for the reveal.
Card #1 folks: You got the Yes! Card. Interesting combo with the collective card. We’ll look at that in a minute. This card has an angel with arms stretched up to the sky and exuding joy. Gorgeous rainbow of colors on this card. What’s coming through with this card is that this is the sign you’ve been waiting for. It’s your “go for it”. If you asked Spirit to send you a sign, your answer is yes.
So how in the world does this energy make sense with the collective “Take a Step Back”? Well, it’s a “yes, and…” situation. So the answer is yes—totally do that project, follow through on that desire or intention, but after to say, “yes”, take a step back and look at the idea as a whole. Meaning: the idea is great, but what energy are you bringing to it?
Yes, and evaluate the steps or actions you’re going to take to make it come to life.
Yes, and take time to reflect on how you’re going to make it happen, so you aren’t wasting energy into things that won’t move this “yes” forward.
I’d say for card #1 folks, say yes and then sit down and jot some notes down, come up with an intentional action plan, pay attention to the how of things. Personally, I’d journal or draw a few cards about it—get Spirit’s insight on it. You do you, but take some time to figure out what the best way forward is once you do say yes. That process will look different for each of you.
Card #2 folks: The Healing Energy card comes up for you. This card has an angel with emerald green wings, wearing purple/blue with a caduceus. Once again fascination combo with the collective card. So the message here is that healing energy is surrounding you at this time. Anything in your life that needs healing: that door is open to you this month. I mean honestly, it’s open to you all the time but the energy lends itself to really seeing what needs healing and then accepting that energy into your life. T
he tie in to the collective card is where this gets interesting because once again, the angels have some thoughts on this. It’s kind of fragmented, but let me get it out and then we will make sense of it. So I’m hearing that healing isn’t something you do, it’s something you accept. It’s definitely not something you do alone—Spirit is always there to support you with it. The angels also want you to know that you’re not broken and you don’t need to be fixed. So set that idea to the side. Healing isn’t about fixing yourself or a situation. It’s about HEALING it 😂 ok, angels that’s vague, let’s dive into that more.
What I’m seeing is the roots of a tree. Healing is about looking at the roots. Getting to the core of what’s really going on. So they’re showing me this tree that isn’t flourishing and there’s a person treating the tree. They’re fertilizing it, watering it, pruning it, talking to it, and not getting anywhere—the tree isn’t getting any better. And they can’t figure out why, but when you look beneath the surface and look at the roots—which they aren’t doing, but if they did—they’d see where the tree is planted—it’s no good. It’s rocky, there isn’t enough room for its roots to take hold and spread out, it’s just not a great environment for the tree. But the person can’t see that because they aren’t looking below the surface.
What this says to me is that healing this month is once again about intentional action. For you taking a step back to give yourself space to really see what the heart of the issue is is key. You’ve been looking at the symptoms and treating those, but not really getting to the root of the problem. It may even seem overwhelming, but you can start today by inviting healing angels in to help you see the root of what’s going on, so you can really, actually heal it. Stay open to what signs you receive or inspirations that come through. It may be in the form of a person, a book, a chance meeting, but they’re there for you and you don’t have to navigate this healing journey alone.
Card #3 folks: Your card is Power and Intention. Once again golds, blues, purples with a very emperor-like feeling to the angel on the card. This card 100% ties into the collective. I’m not sure I can even talk about them separately. I’ll try. The Power and Intention card is all about revisiting your intentions. It speaks to the idea that your intentions are what is fueling the engine of your life. Sometimes, we make intentions, forget about them, and then those continue to play out—even when they’re not exactly what we want. I think we can also go on autopilot in our lives. Where we make intentions and then just sort of set things on cruise, not realizing that as we drive forward in life, we’re going to need to make adjustments and revisit the map—the original intentions—to make sure we’re still going in a direction that we want to go.
Let’s be honest: We all pick a map of our lives and in that moment that map feels good and that journey looks appealing, but then years go by and we never revisit the map. We never ask ourselves, is this the direction we want to be going? So lucky you #3 folks because that’s your assignment for the month. Take a step back and relook at that map. Ask yourself, does it need to be changed or the route adjusted? Taking a step back for reflection will be huge for you. The second part of this card reassures you that you have the power to change your path. You may not be able to change everything around you—some things you don’t have control over—but, you can change a lot by revisiting your initial intentions and being honest about whether or not those are still what you want out of life.
So let’s review:
Collectively: Take a Step back, reflect, in order to come up with intentional actions that will help all involved
#1: The answer is Yes! But you still need to reflect on how you want to make that yes happen
#2: Healing starts at the roots. Make space to see what the core issue is—not just the symptoms.
#3: You have the power to change things up—revisit your original intentions to make sure they still resonate.
And that’s June!
This month I’m busy with Season 2 recording for Adventures with Spirit Podcast and am excited about all the 1:1 sessions that are booked. Traditionally, in the summer, I take more time off to go to the beach and hang out with my family. I’m doing it again this summer.
However, I’m giving myself more space this summer because my father passed away in May. I’m following the angels advice and taking a step back and reflecting on how I want to show up in the world and in our shared space.
If you’d like a 1:1 the best thing to do is email me. I’m keeping my calendar closed until September, so that I can meet myself where I am at, but I’m still taking 1:1 clients when the space looks good to do so. If you’re wanting a 1:1 please reach out via email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work together to find a space that supports both of us. I appreciate your understanding and patience with this. It’s not ideal, but I have learned that when I don’t give myself space to be human during life’s challenges all the things fall apart.
Have a beautiful June and I will connect again with you all this July!
