The 3 Card Reading uses the principle of synchronicity to select
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

Card 1 - The 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.

Truth (From Healing Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Principle leading to freedom, ease, commitment, connection and joy

Truth leads us forward, showing the way. Truth clears and clarifies. It heals denial and other forms of dishonesty. It allows partnership and opens you to receive. It frees you from the deadness and hypocrisy of roles and duties, and from doing the right thing for the wrong reason. Truth can set things straight, allowing proper relationships and perspectives to form. It constantly separates the chaff from the wheat. While truth can sometimes be uncomfortable as it cuts through illusion, what we cut through now saves us greater pain and disillusionment later. The truth frees and connects us, bringing light and freedom. In this sense, ultimately, anything which is not joyful is not the truth. Truth can thus be used to cut through areas of deadness, pain and misery. Whenever something is less than joyful, ask for the truth. Choose the truth. Love the truth. It will set you free and show you’re the way home.

Using the card
If you receive this card, you can use these statements to change painful situations:

  • ‘I recognize this feeling or situation is not the truth.’
  • ‘I want the truth. I choose the truth.’
  • ‘I could be having joy instead of this.’
Freedom will come to you if you choose the truth today.

True Love (From Gift Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Opening to the ever-deepening romance and growth of true partnership

True Love is not just about romance. It is the card of someone who has a gift of being a true partner, someone whose qualities lean themselves to being the perfect partner to heal, love and learn with for a lifetime.

Typically, there are a number of people who you meet in the course of your life who could fit this description. This card asked you to be open to the one who is present in your life now (or is about to be), and to have the courage to commit. If you have a partner, this means you are just about to have another true love breakthrough. ‘Honeymoon, here I come!’

With the True Love card, it is important to recognize that there is nothing to do, but everything to allow. So allow your inspiration to carry you forward in whatever is necessary, and let things unfold naturally. This is typically one of the gifts people cherish most in life. Yet it is not an end in itself; it is just the beginning. You will still be called upon to learn all the lessons of successful relationships.

After the initial romance period, true love could be an ever-deepening growth, an ever more profound partnership, on your way Home. True Love states that there is the possibility through the love in your relationship to help bring Heaven to earth.

Using the card
If you get this card, you are asked to recognize that the person in the situation (or who is about to be in the situation) will provide the inspiration through any problem. If there is a block, you are being asked to notice that the block itself is trying to distract or divert you from true love, which is already present or is about to be present. The only purpose of the block has been to hide this gift, and to give you control, either of the relationship or of yourself. As with any gift, if you pay attention to the gift itself, the block will begin to melt away.

Receiving this card, know that your hear wants to open in a new birth, and that it wants to give itself wholly…and receive everything more fully.
