Oracle Card (November 27, 2012)
QUESTION: Dear Spirit Guides: Thank you so much for caring about me and guiding me. I would very much like to open more widely our communication and, more importantly, I’d like to learn more about who you are and if there’s anything I can do to help you.
ANSWER: Father Healing: “Your personal power increases as you give any father-related issues to Heaven.”
INTERPRETATION: Mom is one of my Spirit Guides! Only my mother would know or care about reconciling the differences between Dad and I. It seemed at times one of her primary goals in life was to mediate a peace treaty between us. By drawing the Father Healing card, my mother not only told me who she is but what she wants: Make amends with my father.
AFFIRMATION: “I now focus on the love that is the Spiritual Truth of my father, and I hereby balance any karma between us. I now let go of everything but the love and the lessons of my relationship with my father.”

QUESTION: Dear Spirit Guides, and Mom! I love and honor and thank you for taking time to talk with me. Would you please give me guidance on how I can let go of caring what other people think of me?
ANSWER: Pay Attention: “Notice repetitious signs and your inner guidance, as this can yield valuable information.” The card concluded, “These signs also give you feedback about your current belief system, since your thoughts attract mirroring experiences. Use these signs to heal beliefs that dishonor you.” (Wow! It is my own beliefs of myself that I see others mirroring back to me! Interesting.)

QUESTION: I feel, Teddy, that you are near, one of my Spirit Guides? And then I bursted out crying, thinking back on some of the good times we had but also feeling guilty, even though he died back in 1986, when I was 30 years old.
ANSWER: Play Time: “The dolphins know the importance of playing, as joy creates miracles and manifestation.”
INTERPRETATION: Of course, Teddy would say play! That was the motto he lived by! [In addition to his full-time day job, Teddy worked loading cargo at night, worked the bingo hall on his nights off, worked the raffles at the club events, and worked delivering ice at the state fair. Whether he was at work or not, he was always at play, always loving every minute.]
By drawing this card, Teddy is telling me point-blank that he is one of my Spirit Guides. This card also tells me I have been striving too hard and have lost focus. It says that play opens your heart chakra and allows your spirit to tap into your creative wisdom. It “allows you to regain perspective on what is and what is not important.”

QUESTION: I began to think about asking for guidance concerning the nutrition journal I had been keeping, perhaps a future blog or a book? But before I could formulate a question or finish shuffling, a card stubbornly would not go back into the deck.
ANSWER: Father Healing. Again!
INTERPRETATION/ACTION: Mom, God? Someone wants me to focus instead on my relationship between me and my Dad, rather than a work on nutrition, ironically a bone of contention between us last August.
Instead of working on my food journal, I took the night off to play, to relax and chat on the phone with my father. I called him and told him about how I had discovered who two of my Spirit Guides were and that Mom is one of them, and how—even from the beyond—she is trying to help mediate peace between us.
Then, as if to put an exclamation on her point, Mom somehow mustered enough energy to spill my drink and Dad’s drink within a few minutes of each other, even considering we were 1500 miles apart.
Spilling drinks had come to symbolize a major turning point in the relationship between my father and I, from a child always spilling her Kool-Aid to the shaking hand of an aging man who could not keep a grip on his orange juice.
But only my mother would appreciate the irony of us both spilling our drinks that night, on the phone, and only she knew that by doing so she was confirming to both of us, with no doubts in our minds, that she is still watching over us. I told Dad that I thought we had already resolved all of our issues, and he said he thought so, too.
But apparently we still had unfinished business. While I was trying to prevent my drink from spilling, I had dropped the phone, and thus, our connection.
When I called Dad back, we laughed about the synchronicity of our drinks spilling and how it confirmed for us that Mom was still guiding us from beyond. Dad said, “I knew God was keeping me alive for some reason.”

QUESTION: Dear Spirit Guides and Mom, with love, would you please guide me on how I can let go of all the hurt and pain I feel from being betrayed by my supposed best friends? I have tried everything, but it still hurts!
ANSWER: Tranquility: “Make time to relax, be still, and enjoy your solitude, indulging in much-needed self-care.” It concluded, “Enjoy this relaxation time and have faith that your prayers have been heard and are being answered.”

QUESTION: Dear Spirit Guides: I’m freaking out, anxiety, now that I am out of work and will probably be evicted. Should I be packing, but no car, where to go? God please help me. I am totally overwhelmed. I don’t know what to do first.
