Readings are a tool to help others on their sacred path. Readings are done to the highest good with the understanding that the choices we make affect our outcome.
The cards are cleansed by smudging with sacred smoke prior to a reading so ... nobody else's previous reading or energy comes through!
A candle is lit as Grandmother is introduced. She began teaching me as a child, sharing her love and wisdom from old traditions handed down generation to generation from her Scottish roots.
As the candle is lit, an intention is set for the reading to go to the highest good.
3 divinatory tools are used when doing a reading. Three is the number that brings clarity and focus. Three colors can make a rainbow. Good energies to have in a reading!
Anointing oil is used at the close of the reading to bless the person being read.
After the reading, the person being read 'Makes a wish and blows out their candle'. This is an old tradition. Putting your wish/intent in your breath and sending it with the flame to the universe and beyond so it may assist you and aid you in your desire!
