As I expand my intuitive wings I am discovering many different methods of healing and self growth. Of course I had heard of Doreen Virtue. She was a renowned intuitive who was greatly respected. And of course, I was familiar with Tarot cards. (Since I first wrote this post she has however, denounced all of her “New Age” teachings. I write about that here.)
What are Angel Cards?
Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine set out to create a set of Angel Cards utilizing the Tarot tradition, with the goal of creating cards that are pleasing to the eye, the heart and the soul. She found that some clients were often startled by the images found in traditional Tarot card decks yet at the time she respected the deep tradition of Tarot card readings.
The course I took, Certified Angel Card Reader, was facilitated by Doreen and Radleigh. It was a great course in learning not just about Angel Cards but also includes a bit of history about Tarot and Oracle cards. The renamed course, Certified Angel Tarot Reader is now offered solely by Radleigh Valentine and the Angel Tarot Card Deck reflects Radleigh as the sole author.
I Incorporate Angel Cards into my Private Sessions
Some of you may be wondering how I might incorporate Angel Card readings into my practice so I will offer my thoughts here. The cards are absolutely beautiful and there are many decks to choose from. There are even apps for the card decks. So on a very basic level, the cards are aesthetically pleasing. I can use one-card readings for group ice-breakers. I can use Angel Tarot Cards or Flower Therapy Oracle Cards to enhance essential oil meetups. Within an individual session, I can use the cards as a way to stimulate conversation much as therapists and coaches have used positive affirmation books and cards for decades. The cards are also a great tool for discussing symbolism and metaphors. To book a Private Session with me, click here.
Intentional Angel Work
I could have simply purchased the decks and used them at will, but I do respect the sacred intention and purpose in the creation of the cards so I wanted to learn more and be able to use the cards as they are designed to be used. I am intentional about my use of Angel cards and all divination tools.
