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

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.
Dark Story (From Unconscious Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Negative scripts one is writing which run or affect our lives.

Throughout your life, your unconscious mind tells stories to speak of its journey. It speaks in terms of symbols, archetypes and myths. This is because we are story-telling creatures, telling a story with our lives. We choose the type of story we want to tell. We can tell happy or healing stories. Or we can tell death stories. The major negative ones which we might be telling are: Tragedy, Guilt, Revenge, Martyr, Soap Opera, Nightmare, Victim, Heartbreak, Maverick/Independent, Fear and Tantrum.

Using the card
Here are some questions you could ask yourself about your life story:

  • If my life were a book, what would its name be?
  • If my life were a movie, what would its name be? (We are the writers, producers, directors, stars, and even all of the assistants in our stories.)
  • Do I have the kind of movie for my life that, if I were watching it, I’d fall asleep in it because I am so bored; where I’d get up and leave when it’s half-way through; or the kind I’d spend most of my time in the washroom or at the refreshment stand?

If you have picked this card, you know that a Dark Story is trapping you in some way.

  • Write each of the negative categories (Tragedy, Guilt, Revenge and so on) on separate pieces of paper.
  • Fold the pieces of paper and drop them into a bowl.
  • Ask your Higher Mind for help and pick a piece of paper to find which reflects the Dark Story that is most holding your back. Each one of these Dark Stories is a core pattern, which you have chosen, and whose script you are living by. While it seems to occur on its own, you have chosen it for some purpose. Ask yourself what that purpose is. You could change your Dark Story through choice: by using the power of your mind to make a new choice about what it is that you want and to keep making that choice. You can say to yourself for every little bit of the old Dark Story which shows up, ‘I don’t want this. What I want is __________.’

Whatever your Dark Story, you have a purpose for writing it. Ask yourself:

  • What purpose do I have for writing this kind of story?
  • What is the payoff for this story?
  • What is it I get to hide about myself?
  • What gift or opportunity stays hidden by this?
  • What is it this allows me to do?
  • What is that I don’t have to do?

Ask your Higher Mind for help to transform your Dark Story to one which is true and authentic, to one which has to do with you truly giving yourself You could be choosing a Happy Story, a Love Story, a Healing Story, a Heroic Story, an Adventure Story or a Spiritual Odyssey.

Forgiveness (From Healing Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Resolving hidden guilt in oneself; apologizing for mistaken blame; reconnecting; true understanding; giving forth

This is another core healing principle: forgiveness is really self-forgiveness. If the world is simply a reflection of your own mind, if all blame and judgment are projections of your own guilt and self-attack, then forgiveness of others releases both the others and the subconscious guilt within you. Guilt is really a form of arrogance which makes life all about oneself, rather than just learning the lesson, correcting the mistake and moving on. Forgiveness puts things in perspective and brings back innocence. It returns life to ease, flow and confidence.

Forgiveness is not a form of winning the competition while another fails. Nor is it about condescension or superiority. It is not designing to grant the other mercy - which is really superiority (hidden judgment and overcompensation for guilt and feelings of inadequacy) and competition (distraction from success and fear of the next step). We fear forgiveness because we feel that we would be locked into a position of sacrifice or wounding. We feel that we are justified in our grievance or anger and that it would be stupid to give this up. Yet grievances are never about what someone else has done but in fact are about what we have not forgiven ourselves for. We are actually holding our past against them. No situation can fail unless we fail to give something. Forgiveness is simply reconnection. It is an apology for blaming others for ‘crimes’ you thought that you had committed. Forgiveness is the realization that it was all just a mistake, and true understanding and a new healed situation appear. In forgiveness you finally get to give what was not given in the past. This heals you and the one being judged.

One of the core dynamics of any problem is broken bonding, or separation. Guilt is the superglue of life which keeps us stuck in painful patterns and situations, while forgiveness is the solvent which releases us not only from our guilt, but also from our withdrawal, unworthiness and sacrifice, and from the feelings of deadness, exhaustion, difficulty, being stuck, valuelessness and overcompensation. As we are released from that which separates us, we are reconnected and the problem is solved.

Using the card
If you receive this card today, understand that it is important to motivate yourself to forgive, because what you don’t forgive in any one person, you don’t forgive in everyone, including yourself. This means that, without forgiveness, you will create distance - even with those you love the most. The power to change your situation is in your hands. Forgiveness is a choice which creates a new giving forth and a new receiving. Release your grievances so the hidden self-attack and lack of freedom will be released. If done by oneself, forgiveness is a difficult lesson, and self-forgiveness can be even harder. But you can ask your Higher Mind for help in accomplishing the forgiveness.

While there are many beautiful forgiveness exercises, you could just as easily let it be done by grace. Realize that if you are blaming yourself or others the truth is being blurred. Choose the truth. Ask to know it. Ask for the forgiveness to occur. This may happen layer by layer, or it may occur all at once. In other words, you can ask for a miracle and the whole situation can be seen in a new light.

Today you will see the world in a new way; you will see the natural connection between ideas and people, answers will be given to you and everything will be moved forward to a new level.

While inspiration is about seeing and feeling the way forward, is mostly about ‘knowing’ the way forward. Inspiration brings both the answer and the inspired energy with it, so that you are carried with the energy, and there is no effort on your part.
