My 2-year-old daughter M loves playing with my tarot and oracle cards. “I want to look at Momma’s cards please,” she often says to me if I leave a deck out within her reach.
She unpacks them from their box or pouch. She’ll line them up or turn them over one by one, admiring all the imagery.
Usually that’s all it is. She’ll sort through the cards for a few minutes and then something else with attract her attention.
But today I left her alone in my bedroom so I could begin cooking lunch. She appeared in the kitchen a few minutes later, holding “The Chariot” card featuring Eos, Greek Goddess of the Dawn from the Universal Goddess Tarot.
“Oh! You have a card?” I asked her.
“Yes,” she said cheerfully.
“Let me see… oh, look at all the horses,” I said to her.
“It’s my favorite card,” she noted, as if she was a veteran reader of the deck.
“Well let’s see what this card means,” I said, leading her back into the bedroom to reference the booklet.
I take you away from darkness and I illuminate your path. A dark night ends, a bright day begins.
I read that line and I knew my spirit guide was telling me the worst was over.
You see, M has a cold and last night was a particularly bad evening. She coughed… all. night. long.
My husband and I tried everything to soothe her, but nothing seemed to help. M got maybe seven hours of sleep last night. She usually requires 12.
All morning I’ve been worried tonight will be another sleepless night for all of us but then I read that card… again.
A dark night ends, a bright day begins.
I smirked, and immediately felt better about whatever may come our way tonight. Thank you, spirit guide. Message received loud and clear!
This isn’t the first time I’ve received spirit guide messages via my cards. I use my cards and do readings all the time as a method of communicating with my guides. But as I mentioned, my daughter plays with my cards a lot and every so often I know my guides are leaving me messages via her and the cards.
A few weeks ago, my daughter was playing with my favorite oracle card deck. When she was finished, I gathered all the cards and put them away. I would’ve sworn on my life that all the cards were back in the box. Yet, when I returned to the room a bit later, there was a single card left out on the floor in plain view for me to see.
The card was a message from my spirit guides, reminding me to stop procrastinating on several home projects. The message wasn’t a coincidence because I’ve drawn other cards with similar messages during my formal readings. The oracle card left on the floor that day was a gentle reminder for me to stay focused.
