Take a moment and take a deep breath. Get centered, and grounded, then pick a card. By get centered I mean to get calm, focused, and to be present in the moment. By get grounded I mean to uncross your feet and arms, with feet flat on the floor. It is also beneficial if you can quickly imagine roots shooting down from your root Chakra and feet into the Earth. Allow these roots to anchor you in a supportive way that neutralizes negativity and draws up nurturing Earth energy for stability. Sometimes more than one breath is needed to feel ready. Often three nice, slow, deep breaths are just right. Do what feels best for you…
Once you feel ready pick the card that you feel the most drawn to. This week the deck is the Morgan-Greer Tarot Deck published by U.S. Games Systems, Inc.
