3 Card Reading
From the Enlightenment Pack by Chuck Spezzano
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.
Guilt (From Victim Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Self-attack; withdrawal; unworthiness; living in the past; fear of the next step; self-exaggeration; control

Guilt is a negative emotion that goes hand in hand with fear. Just as fear is about the future, guilt comes from something we feel bad about in the past. When we have guilt we always create forms of self-punishment. It is one of the root dynamics that gives rise to any problem, or victim, situations. Guilt’s purpose is to ‘protect’ us from moving forward and taking the next step. The more attention we pay to guilt, the more we reinforce its existence.

We use guilt to try to control ourselves and exaggerate the part we played in the situation; and when we blame others, we use it to try to control them. We either become aggressive toward others, or we withdraw, becoming aggressive toward ourselves through sacrifice, unworthiness and poor self-image. When we have guilt, we feel bad. So either we act badly, or we compensate by trying to act very good. Yet, this kind of ‘good’ behavior doesn’t bring reward, because the behavior is about ‘proving’ you are a good person when you really believe you are guilty.

Guilt does not allow for correction, because it says that you should be punished, rather than corrected. As a form of self-attack, it is one of the most self-destructive concepts, as it makes us withdraw from life and relationships. And, in that withdrawal, we cannot be successful.

Using the card
When you receive this card, you are being asked to look at what you feel bad about. Look at where you are attacking or punishing yourself for your feelings of guilt, or having others do it for you. If you are not immediately sure what the guilt refers to, either dwell on it until it emerges, or guess who and then what it’s about.

You are being asked to correct the mistake instead of staying stuck in the cycle of self-punishment and guilt. The more you punish yourself, the worse you feel. The worse you feel, the more you are convinced of your guilt, and so you punish yourself even more. So long as we are caught in the cycle, the problem is never understood, healed or forgiven. When we attack and judge ourselves like this, we cannot help but judge others, too. But when we free ourselves, we also free those around us.

If you get this card today, you are being asked to look at giving one of the greatest gifts you can give the world - you. Rather than building a monument to a mistake, learn the lesson, correct the mistake, recognize your innocence and take the next step forward.

Leadership (From Healing Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Vision with responsiveness; irresistibility with integrity; making others more important than your problems

Leadership is one of the three core concepts of my Psychology of vision. It relates to a concept in a Course in Miracles that Heaven is entered two by two. Leadership is the art of responsiveness by someone who has vision and is irresistible with integrity. As a healing principle, it means that whatever is stopping you, there is someone around you who needs you (although this may be disguised). When people are caught up in self-attack, or a self-obsession with traps — being made self-conscious, ashamed, embarrassed, humiliated or mortified by a personality — what is really going on is that someone around them is in even more dire need of help. The Leadership Principle at work which could heal even our greatest pain is this: if you are stopped by a problem, pain or any type of block, simply ask yourself, ‘Who needs my help?’ and you will be called to go toward and support anyone who comes to mind. You don’t necessarily need to know what it is you would say or do. You are just asked to give yourself and your support to that person. In that joining you find that what is stopping you falls away, and that what is holding them back also falls away. Both of you move into a creative and healing flow, where all things progress forward without effort. In this flow, opportunities arise and expectancy for all good things coming your way is a natural feeling and process.

Using the card
If you receive this card, there is a simple way to move forward. Whatever is stopping you, or at least a whole level of it, can be moved through easily, even if it is a chronic problem or the worst pain of your life. If it is a chronic problem, it may be that only a layer of it falls away. In this case, you just move through it level by level.

Ask who needs your help. Then call, write, visit or even just send your love to whoever comes to mind. Imagine that the problem is a wall between both of you, then step though it to support them. Make them more important than your suffering. Make the desire to help, or to save them, more important than whatever is blocking you, or even knocking you to your knees. In that true desire to support and to join them, you will both be moved forward. If anything is required from you in words or deeds, you will be inspired with that. Be open and responsive, inside and outside. This is one of the simplest forms of healing. It can move you through some of the biggest blocks, or greatest pain, of your life; ‘I make you more important than this problem, this self-attack or even this self-consciousness. I will not let this problem blind me to your call for help. I give you my heart that we both might be free.’

Freedom (From Gift Suite)

KEY CONCEPTS:

Principle coming from commitment and truth, allowing for happiness and giving yourself fully

Freedom is actually a healing concept which is a derivative of both commitment and truth. To receive it as a gift card means that freedom will be gifted to you in someway, that something which has kept you in chains will fall away. Today, something is moving out of your way and out of your life to give you a new breathing space, an new clarity and a new openness. You have given of yourself, and now the gift of freedom is coming to you. This means the stress, worries, burdens, troubles, misery and sacrifice and all fall away. As you allow yourself freedom, it demonstrates your own self-love. As you give others freedom, it demonstrates your love for them.

Using the card
If you receive this card today, do not be deceived by any traps. Be careful not to confuse freedom with the rebellion of independence — that is actually dissociation ( not wanting to be dependent on anyone) and is only a guise for freedom. Something which has stopped you is about to fall away. Celebrate its departure. Freedom will bring about true connection and true responsiveness, rather than ‘burdensomeness’. It is available and being offered to you today, to let you know of life’s sweetness. True freedom allows you to give yourself fully, because in doing so, you feel both free and focused. If connection and communication are the true state of being, it follows that freedom allows us to see our relationships with both things and people in a way which gives everyone liberty. Your freedom allows for happiness… and happiness takes no prisoners.
