For myself, I choose to make my readings spiritual. I want to connect with the divine, in its broadest sense, and do so through divination! I can do that just as well with a Lenormand deck as with an oracle, or even when walking in the park. Intent is what matters. So, I decided to pull three cards from the beautiful Mystical Lenormand (AGM/Urania, 2004).

So, I meditated on this reading. I felt what it might be like to be a fish, and tried to explore all the elements from that perspective. It was fascinating! Air was easy, as bubbles flow through the water all the time, either from the gills etc of other water creatures, or the splash of their tails. Fire I found in the energy provided by food, warming my belly. Water was all around me, connecting me with the other fish in my vicinity, and with the currents of the water itself which moved me, or which I could at least sense. My whole body became a means of perception, at an intuitive level. Earth, though, that was hard! When out in the deeps, there is no shore, and the seabed may be far, far below, never seen. What "grounds" me, then, in this sea of being? My own body, and the presence of my shoal! I find myself, in myself, and in my "home" tribe.
And I meditated, too, on the gift of grace. Part of that is simply the gift of being in this world, experiencing its wonder and its variety. I thought of the flowers that grow from the earth, and what a gift they are. Not just because of their beauty, colour and scent, but because they suggest growth and renewal, and they signal the fruits that will come, which nourish us.
I am grateful for the wisdom to see the beauty in all of life! And to not let others determine where I find my inspiration and spiritual connection :)
