Within each of us is an innate source of unlimited wisdom. It often hides hidden beneath our fears and conditioned beliefs, yet, in moments of inspiration, each of us has extraordinary insights into ourselves and the course of our lives. We offer you these Reflection cards to assist you in accessing this inner knowing.
The cards are organized into fourteen suits which mirror potential threads in our lives. Each card is focused around a quotation from Gurudev’s, spoken directly to your higher Self.
Instructions and Suggestions
The reflection cards are divided into 14 suits, such as happiness, love, problems, and purpose. Each suit contains five key insights for transforming your inner experience of life.
There are a number of different ways you can use the cards. Several approaches are suggested here. You may go on to create your own ways to receive their messages.
•Hold the cards face down in your left hand, with your right hand covering them. Think of a situation or question about which you would like to receive guidance or direction. Hold the situation or question in your mind as you spread the cards out on a clean surface, and intuitively select the card and guidance meant for you.
•Each day, take a few moments to sit in stillness with your eyes closed. Breathe deeply and easily as you slip into meditation. As you feel ready, open your eyes and select from the cards the perfect guidance for you and your day. Return to meditation and feel the teaching merge with your own inner knowing. As you complete your period of inner stillness, experience a sense of peaceful purpose as the guidance for your day easily manifests in your words and actions.
•The cards can be used as vehicles for sharing deeper parts of yourself with others. In a circle of family or friends, each person intuitively selects a card holding the intention that it represent an important aspect of their growing and learning in life right now. Each person takes a turn reading their card to the others, sharing in depth the reason for that particular guidance being drawn to them right now in their lives.
