To begin, just think of a problem you have right at the moment (and if you don't have any problems then think of something you'd like to improve in your life). Choose a problem that you'd like to clear, if not entirely then at least the next layer of it. Think about this problem

The first card represents the Psychological dynamic which is causing the problem. Look at this hidden or undrlying issue. Take your time, see if this could possibly be true for you. If you can't see it then look at those around.
The Shadow (From Unconscious Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Repressed and projected negative beliefs about oneself, often compensated for

Shadow figures, which are from the subconscious (or dark archetypes, shadow figures of the unconscious) are about a seemingly dark, or even evil, energy. These figures are actually a belief or aspect about ourselves which, typically, has been repressed for a long time. Often, they are covered over as a compensation with a veneer of being ‘good, sweet, nice, but dead rather than dynamic)’. Underneath this, in the unconscious, there are whole belief systems about ourselves being bad, evil, nasty, cruel and heartless murderers, torturers and tyrants; and because they are belief systems, they seem true; the ‘good, sweet, nice and dead’ facade is a protection against them. At the same time, the dark belief systems are also a defense against our true goodness - the Light within us which we are frightened of. So, The Shadow is over being a Child of God. Fortunately, we can move through this just as easily as any other problem or conflict.

Using the card
If you get this card, you have buried and, typically, denied a negative belief system about yourself which is affecting you and creating self-punishment. Typically, but not always, there will be someone around you, or some past or present world figure, whom you just cannot stand and who brings up a feeling of negativity, or even of hatred, in you. This is evidence of beliefs you have about yourself which are buried, denied and repressed. One way to find your shadow figure is to look at the people around you to find who it is that you can’t stomach. Somewhere, you believe you are like this. You once judged your feeling, repressed it, denied it and finally projected it out. At the same time, you have kept up a level of self-torture and created punishment for yourself from outside sources fro these very beliefs. This has been a mistake. Typically, you have compensated by behaving in a way that is opposite to what your really believe about yourself. This compensation, which may seem very good and helpful, is actually just a form of role or sacrifice, in which you give but don’t receive, because all of the reward just goes to proving that you are not this bad person.

To find The Shadow, ask yourself:

  • ‘Who would be the person I would most hate to be from history, legends, fairy-tales or myths?’
The character who comes to mind, and the qualities or characteristics which seem most to do with this figure, are really beliefs you have about yourself. Once again, this area is typically denied and defended against; but it still affects us, so we punish ourselves through scarcity, ill-health and other troubles because of it.

One way to heal this is to imagine that you are holding the ‘good, sweet, nice, dead’ compensating part of you in one hand and The Shadow in the other.

In your mind, melt them down to their pure light and energy (their most basic form). Then join the two energies together until even your fingers interlock. Keep the new combined energy in one hand and imagine that true goodness is in the other hand. Once again, melt these down to their most basic form of light and energy and join them together.

Flipping the card
If you receive this card, you may want to flip it (flick it in the air between your thumb and middle finger) to see whether unconscious (card lands face up) or subconscious (card lands face down) elements are at play. Unconscious elements speak of mistaken beliefs about ourselves that are long standing or at soul level. If the card lands face down it signifies a subconscious negative belief, one that typically began in childhood. The Shadow will then be presented or projected out on to someone who is in your world, and will be acted out by someone whom you can’t stand, find detestable or hateful, and would least like to be with. These same qualities are repressed beliefs you have about yourself which are hidden by compensation. But these hidden beliefs are no less self-punishing or destructive to us. Another symptom suggesting that a shadow figure exists is if you seem to be up against an invisible wall that is holding you back in spite of your hard work or doing all the right things. This is a true sign of a shadow figure’s presence in your mind.

Letting Go (From Healing Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Releasing past loss and needs; coming into a present perspective; opening to the next step

If forgiveness is the hardest lesson to learn on one’s own, then letting go is the second hardest. Of course, all of this can be accomplished easily through grace and your Higher Mind, if you are willing to change, find the way out and succeed.

Letting go heals holding on, expectations, stress and perfectionism, all of which are based on some picture of, or demand for, how things, others and yourself should be. These demands are your idea for what would meet your needs. This constantly leads to disappointment or frustration, because no matter how well you have ‘written’ your script for happiness, it will not succeed with demands or needs. Needs secretly push away what they are trying to get, and demands repel and create resistance or sacrifice. You can evaluate the success of your script by looking at how happy you have been in your life. If it has only been some what successful for you, why would you impose it on someone else through expectations and demands?

Letting go of the past allows new goals and directions to appear. You cannot win if you hold on and demand that life return to a past which did not fully satisfy you before. With letting go, the past in not lost or thrown away, but is simply put into perspective. It allows you to live in the present once again. Letting go releases the judgment, grievance, guilt, loss, need and fear which lurk beneath every holding on. Choosing this allows your attractiveness to reemerge and also allows your life to unfold and improve. You can then take the next step, which brings new possibility and a truer life.

Using the card
If you receive this card, look for what person (or which aspects or qualities of a person), situation or past event you are holding on to which is stopping present success. Letting go is accomplished by feeling all the painful feelings until they are gone, or by giving your Higher Mind what you are holding on to and asking your Higher Mind to do it for you. Letting go allows the mourning process for past loss to be completed in the present. Once you realize that holding on will not work, your choosing to let go is at the heart of the letting-go process. For instance, holding on after a relationship is over effectively ensures there will be no present or future in that relationship. But, letting go provides an attractiveness and invitation to carry on the relationship, or to have a new relationship - at a higher level. If you receive this card, you are asked to recognize what you think you need, and to let go of it so that you can succeed.
