Here is a Sparknotes edition of “How-To: Angel Cards”. Disclaimer: Every deck is a little bit different. Read the first few pages of the provided book closely. This will tell you the details of the deck.
One. Ya pick ya deck.
Two. Ya take the contents out of the deck.
Three: Ya cleanse the deck. You may use sage for this, cleansing crystals, or meditation energy. When I am lacking materials, I use my energy to hold the deck and envision my energy and light radiating through the deck, claiming it as my own.
Four: Now is the time to ask yo’ questions. Place the deck over your heart and connect with your spiritual guides, ancestors, God, the universe, and whoever you are asking for divine guidance from. Meditate with the deck, and try to come in contact with every card.
Five: Shuffle ’em. However you’d like.
Six: When you feel like you are ready, pull three cards. During the shuffle process, if a card “jumps” out at you, that is the angels’ way of saying, LISTEN UP! WE WANT YOU TO READ!
Seven: Read the card descriptions in the book provided. These descriptions will help you unpack the meaning behind the cards.
Eight: Have a sip of wine. Reflect. Journal. Listen to music. Go for a walk. Do whatever you need to do to process your reading!
