I wasn’t sure what to expect from an angel card reading either when I had my first one. I wasn’t sure if it was magic or witchcraft. I didn’t know if it would be scary (it wasn’t). I didn’t know if it would jeopardize my faith. Thankfully the answers to all of those fearful thoughts were NO. I am happy to report it was a loving, beautiful experience for me. In fact, it was such a beautiful experience that within six months of my first angel card reading, I was investigating being an angel card reader myself in service of others.
An Angel Card Reading is a method of receiving guidance from the Divine using Oracle cards as a tool. There are hundreds of oracle card decks available and many people choose a variety that suits their passions such as Archangels, Dolphins, Fairies, Butterflies, Guidance, etc. The most well known creator of oracle cards is Doreen Virtue, PhD. Some readers even create their own card decks. I have created my own inspirational card deck “Love Notes from The Divine” which is available or on .
The type of card deck doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you receive a reading from someone you feel a connection with and that you have faith that the messages will come forth for you. There is a Certified Angel Card Reader™ designation available through Dr. Doreen Virtue. This certification can assure you that the reader has undergone a rigorous course of study to ensure the best experience possible for the client.
The angel card reading begins when the reader consults with the Divine in meditation to receive guidance prior to meeting the client. Readings can take place in person, over the phone, or via Skype or a similar calling service. Once the reader connects with the client, a brief dialog ensues and continues with a prayer blessing. The reader uses the Law of Attraction principles to receive the correct cards for the client. Cards are drawn from the deck and the reader shares the intuitive guidance the card brings forth for the client. Since we are all energy, the exchange of energy between the client, the reader, the angels and the cards produce the customized experience for the client. No two readings produce the same results.
There are several formats of readings, from a single card up to ten cards or more. The most common is a three-card reading. The three cards can represent the past, present or future depending on the outcome the client is looking for, the types of questions they ask the reader or silently ask the Universe during the reading. Examining the cards individually and as a series is an important part of the reading. Anything that happens during the reading is part of the reading. If a door slams shut during the reading that is an important factor and guidance for the client. The reader needs to put aside their ego and focus upon their Higher Self to best serve the needs of the client and to give the best reading possible.
An angel reading is a gentle, beautiful way for you to connect and receive guidance from God’s divine messengers; your angels. It’s like having a warm, inviting conversation with a trusted friend or loved one where you leave feeling uplifted and surrounded and filled with love.
You can even perform an angel card reading for yourself as part of your daily spiritual practice. Most card decks come with a booklet to further explain the cards in much more detail.
Sending you so much love, joy and peace,
