It would also work well for anyone, who has experienced a painful relationship breakup, abuse, bullying or anything, which has caused an emotional wound that needs healing.
Draw one card for each question:
1. How is my pain currently expressing itself?
It's not just about feeling sad and depressed. A myriad of feelings and emotions can be brought up by bereavement, such as guilt, anger, resentment, even less obvious ones.
2. What lesson does it offer?
What can be learned from it? How can this lesson be taken on board, so step 3 can be carried out?
3. How can I release it?
What can be done to detach from it and let go of it?
Everyone, who is feeling emotional pain, is in a vulnerable position to seek help from the most unusual places.
I know what it's like to desperately wish for the pain to go away, or for it to be magically taken away by someone else.
It's easy to be tempted to visit a "Healer", and I was pondering recently, how some Tarot readers have started to call themselves Healers, and why I cannot join them.
Yes, there are people out there, who can help you heal, but choose wisely and know that you are your own best Healer. It's hard work on your part; you cannot avoid putting in your own effort.
But I do hope that this spread will help you on your way to recovery.
PS: You can also try the following activities to help you on your healing journey:
30 Days of Healing
Very simply, pull a card from your favourite Tarot / oracle deck each day to explore "What can I do today that will help me heal?"
Here, you learn to nurture and empower yourself to help you move forward.
30 Days of Gratitude
Just like above, pull a card each day to explore "What can I be grateful for today?"
This is a good exercise to practice positive thinking.
Click on the link below to download a specially designed journaling sheet you can use for both explorations and save it on your device. You will need to print it twice for 30 days of exploration:
Healing/Gratitude Exploration (PDF document)
The sheet is designed in such a way, that you don't need to write a lot each day; a powerful word or phrase is all you need, and it is easier to remember, too. Make it as practical as possible, so it is easy for you to take action.
If you publish the sheet with your writing on social media, please add hashtag #cosmicjournaling. I'd love to see how you get on with it, and your feedback is so very much appreciated.
This journaling sheet and so many more will be included in my new ebook.
