How to Work with the Angel Answers Oracle Cards
- "How can I get a simple yes-or-no answer to my question?"
- "How do I know the timing of when an event will occur?"
- "I want to talk to my angels, but I don't know how to use oracle cards. How can I get answers?"
These types of questions have been asked many times in the classes I teach. There are occasions when everyone wants detailed answers to their inquiries. But what about those times when all you need is a quick and easy-to-understand response addressing your concerns?
The Angel Answers Oracle Cards deck was created for just these kinds of situations. Perhaps you want to pull a quick card for support and confidence. Or maybe
you're trying to choose between multiple options, and you need a crystal clear sign pointing out which choice to make. Whether your concern is about romance, career, health, or even just day-to-day decision making, these cards make getting answers extremely easy!
Howto Use Your Angel Answers Oracle Cards
Oracle cards are an ancient and time-honored way to connect with Heaven and your angels. They're based upon Pythagorean numerology, which teaches that numbers and images all vibrate in a very precise, mathematical manner.
It's impossible to make a mistake when using oracle cards, because they operate within the infallible Law of Attraction. This means that your inquiries (or those of the person you're doing the reading for) will always attract the perfect cards
as answers. Each one you pull will exactly match the vibration of the question.
These Angel Answers Oracle Cards are meant to be inclusive of all belief systems. Therefore, words such as the Divine, Source, the Universe, God, and Goddess are all considered to be references to the same aspect of pure Love. If the word used in any particular part of this guidebook is different than the one you prefer, please feel free to cross it out and write in the word that resonates with you.
Preparing Your Cards
Here's how to prepare and work with your Angel Answers Oracle Cards:
Step 1: Clear Your Card Deck
Your cards are sensitive, and they absorb energy from everyone who touches them. So they'll need to be cleared of any
energy they may have absorbed from the manufacturing and shipping process. Steps 1 and 2 only need repeating after another person touches your cards or if your readings lack clarity because the cards have become clogged with too much energy.
To clear your deck, hold the cards in one hand and sweep your other hand over them. Then think the thought that you'd like the cards to be cleared, and say a prayer over them, such as: "Dear Angels, thank you for lifting away anything from these cards that is not of Divine love." This clears out the old energy and makes them ready to receive your special energy.
Step 2: Prepare the Cards
Briefly touch all the cards to introduce your own energy to them. You can simply touch one of the corners of each to do this. Then fan the cards out with the artwork
facing you. Hold the fanned cards to your heart and think about any prayers or intentions you'd like to bestow upon them.
Your cards are sensitive to your desires for them. They now carry your personal vibration and wishes.
Your Angel Answer Oracle Cards are designed to be grouped into three types of cards: Angel Messages, Timing Cards, and Yes/No Cards. Divide the cards now into those three categories. You'll want to keep your cards in these separate piles for your readings.
To help you organize your cards, there's a list of the categories at the end of this guidebook. The cards also have different colored borders:
- Angel Messages are purple.
- Timing Cards are gold.
- Yes/No Cards are blue.
Step 3: Ask a Question
Think of a question you'd like to have answered. If you're pulling cards for someone else, ask him or her to either think of or voice a question. Heaven hears your thoughts, so you don't need to say your question out loud.
Step 4: Shuffle the Cards
Now choose which of the three stacks of cards you're going to work with. If the question is a timing question like "When will this happen?" then use the Timing Cards. If you're looking for a straightforward yes or no answer to a question such as "Should I do this?" then choose the Yes/No cards. If you have a general question like "What do the angels want me to know right now?" then use the Angel Messages cards.
Think of the question as you shuffle the cards, and ask Heaven to help you with answers and guidance. I often say this prayer, similar to the one in Step 1, while shuffling:
Dear angels, Please bless and protect this space. I ask that you ensure only pure and trustworthy answers from the Divine come through these cards. I ask that the messages
I receive be clear and easy to understand.
Please help me see, hear, feel, and know the messages you have for us. I ask that this card reading bring blessings to everyone involved.
And so it is.
If one or more cards "jump" out of the deck while you're shuffling, place them to the side. They'll be part of your reading.
As you're shuffling, you'll likely notice thoughts, words, feelings, or visions. These inner messages will help you understand the cards you draw, so
pay attention to everything that you think, hear, feel, and see.
You may also receive a feeling or a "knowing" to stop shuffling the cards, or you may even hear the words Stop shuffling now. These intuitive messages are helping you with the reading. You can't make a mistake and stop shuffling too soon, as the Divine Law of Attraction ensures that you'll always select the correct cards.
Step 5: Choose a Card
Once you stop shuffling, pull any card from the deck. The card you draw is always the right one. Every card is positive, so don't worry about choosing wrongly. You may pull a card from the top of the stack or select one from anywhere in the deck that you feel called to.
The card you pull is the answer to your question. As you read the words on
it, notice any additional words, thoughts, feelings, or visions that come to you, as these are also messages from Heaven for you. The picture on the card, too, is important. Notice where your eyes go when you look at the card, and pay attention to how you feel. Everything you see and feel is part of the answer to your question.
If you set aside a card (or cards) that "jumped" out of the deck while you were shuffling, look at it, too. The jumping card is also giving you a message.
These Angel Answers Oracle Cards were designed to give you the perfect answer with just one card for each question you ask. In a situation where you are comparing possibilities, you would pull one card for each option. If, after pulling a single card, you decide that you would like additional information, you can ask your angels for more detail, shuffle, and pull another.
Step 6: Read This Book
Turn to the entry for each card within this little book. As you read the words, remember to notice any thoughts or feelings that come to you, as they're also part of the answer. Heaven will give you answers and help pertaining to every part of your life.
After completing Steps 3 and 4, pick three cards from the top of the deck. (For this type of reading, you'll likely be pulling all three cards from the Angel Messages stack.) With the pictures and words facing up, lay the first card to your left, the second one in the middle, and the third to the right. The card to your left speaks about the immediate past with respect to the situation you inquired about. The
middle card reveals your question's current status and what you need to know or work on right now. And the card to the right shows your immediate future if you continue on your present path and follow the guidance in the middle card. Again, remember that you can improve your future by holding a positive outlook and following your inner guidance.
Multiple Card Decks
Angel Answers Oracle Cards are designed to work with other oracle or angel-based tarot cards in order to provide more detailed answers should you need them. Simply complete Steps 3 through 6 for each deck. Look for common themes among the cards you've chosen, and that is the answer to your question.
The Meanings of the Cards
This guidebook explains the general meanings for every card in the deck. The names are listed alphabetically according to the first words on the card. At the end of the guidebook, you'll find The Different Types of Angel Answers in This Deck, which organizes the cards into "Angel Messages," "Timing Cards," and "Yes/No Cards."
When you're ready to look up a card's meaning, find the corresponding page and read the interpretation. Your inner wisdom will tell you if any of the information applies to you, or it may trigger further insights about your situation. Also remember that your intuition will offer you even more personalized messages from your angels, so as you read, simultaneously pay attention to your thoughts and feelings.
A YEAR FROM NOW
The event you are asking about will occur within this year, or soon after. During this time interval, you're encouraged to stay optimistic, and to continue with self-care activities and other preparations for your desire. Remember that other people's freewill choices are involved. Your angels are presently
working behind the scenes on your behalf, even if you can't immediately see the evidence of your answered prayers.
Great abundance will find its way into your life! Your plans will yield prosperity, providing a sense of security about the future. Your angels will be with you as you take the actions necessary to manifest your dreams.
Abundance is not always financial in nature. You may be seeking to manifest new ideas, a large circle of friends, vibrant
health, or romantic love. This card can also reflect an inflow of any of these types of treasures into your life. Open your arms to Heaven to receive with gratitude that which you desire!
ASK FOR HELP
It's not necessary to do everything on your own. Your angels are asking you to reach out to those around you for assistance. By allowing others to lend a hand, you greatly increase your chances for success, and your plans will begin to move
forward. The help you receive may also include important information provided by knowledgeable individuals.
The stress of doing too much can create both physical and emotional health challenges for you. Surround yourself with loving friends and family who are willing and able to lighten your load, and you'll begin to feel much better!
ASK YOUR ANGELS
Your angels are always with you! However, you must ask for their assistance in order for them to provide you with the help you're seeking, because Heaven respects your freewill choices. State your questions to your angels clearly. You can do so either out loud or silently in your
own mind. Your angels will instantly help you according to Divine will.
Your angels may also have special messages for you about the situation you're asking about. Sit quietly in a peaceful place indoors or out in nature and ask for advice and guidance. Notice what messages come to you. It's possible the answers will come to you through your feelings, hearing, or sight—or perhaps you will just know the answer! You can also ask the angels for signs during the day to guide you onto the right path.
This situation calls for you to take matters into your own hands! You must get clear on your personal feelings and then pursue the fulfillment of your desires with courage and self-confidence. Ask for what you need, without watering down your request in order to satisfy others.
Remember that seeing to your own needs is nothing to apologize for! Set boundaries with those around you in order to create a safe and fair environment. Tailor your actions so that you earn the respect from others you deserve, and then move forward.
BIG, HAPPY CHANGES
Big positive changes are coming into your life! You may find yourself on a new career path, entering a new relationship, or moving to a new home or city. Embrace these exciting events, knowing that your angels will be beside you all the way!
What you are asking about may require you to take leaps of faith that
seem frightening or beyond your ability. Trust that the opportunities before you are meant to bring you happiness. These options would not have presented themselves unless you were ready for them. Release your fears and follow your heart.
The time has come to choose a new direction for your life. The circumstances that you find yourself living in may seem unfulfilling, or perhaps your heart is full of discontent. You know that there is something more out in the world for you,
and you've been procrastinating following the guidance of your angels.
Make a conscious choice to be the person you are meant to be. Create an action plan for yourself that leads you in the direction of your Divine life purpose. Begin taking steps immediately toward a happier future!
This situation requires very precise and careful communication. Don't assume that others involved understand what you want or need from them. In-person discussions are preferable, but if that's not
possible, make sure that your communication method is very thorough.
This card can indicate that there has been a miscommunication that is creating a challenge for the parties involved. By clearing up any misunderstandings, you can heal the situation so that everyone can start moving forward again.
In order to create a happy outcome for this situation, you will find it necessary to compromise. Allow yourself some time to become clear about what is truly important to you. Also, take note of matters where you would be open to changing your position. Work toward an agreement where everyone wins.
Be open to cooperation that would allow you to get what you need while also assisting others in fulfilling their desires. Be objective about finding a balance between respecting everyone else's viewpoints and still being true to your own.
This is not the time to give up! Continue to move in the direction of your hopes, dreams, or plans. You are on the right path, and you should see progress as long as you stay the course!
It's very important that you stand your ground and believe in yourself. Don't let others intimidate you into quitting.
Just because they don't have your vision doesn't mean you shouldn't follow your heart.
Forgiveness can work miracles. When you release the past, a weight is lifted from your shoulders, and a sense of freedom washes over you. Ask your angels to help you let go of sadness or pain caused by others so that you can be free!
This card can also refer to a need for self-forgiveness. It's time to let go of any
guilt you are holding on to regarding past mistakes you may have made. Give yourself credit for having tried your best even if the results weren't what you would have liked. Focus on the changes you've made since then that have made you a better person.
GET MORE INFORMATION
The situation you're asking about requires more information in order for you to make a wise decision. Approach those knowledgeable about the topic to solicit their advice. If there are friends or family
members in your midst who have insight into the matter, ask for their observations.
You may need to do some analytical research in order to get the data you need. This could include reading books, taking classes or seminars, or gathering information from the Internet.
This card indicates that it's time to expand your circle of friends. Or you may find yourself needing to do some professional networking. Make time to branch out in order to create the personal or career connections necessary to be happy and successful!
This card can also indicate that your situation requires the input of those who can assist you in accomplishing the task before you. This may include professionals in fields related to your question or others who work for or around you. It could also include people in your personal life who have experience that would be useful. This card lets you know that someone will be entering your life soon who can help make your dreams come true.
IF YOU BELIEVE
What you need right now is faith. You can have what you desire, but you must believe that it can be so! Stay positive and visualize the outcome you're hoping for. Set aside all negativity or pessimism in favor of a sunny outlook.
The Law of Attraction brings to us what we expect to receive. If our perception is
that we deserve great things, then we will attract happiness. If we fall into doubt and don't believe in our own self-worth, then our experiences will match that energy.
Believe in yourself and your cherished dreams!
The angels want you to know that the health of the person you asked about is going to improve. You can request the assistance of Archangel Raphael and your guardian angels to speed along the recovery.
This card may also be urging you to make more healthful choices in your life.
If you're feeling called to detox from harmful foods or substances, you should follow that guidance. Removing unhealthy practices from your life will make you feel vibrant and strong!
IN THE NEAR FUTURE
What you are asking about will occur very soon, so you won't have to wait much longer. Stay optimistic and continue upon your current path. Be open to receiving.
IT’S UP TO YOU!
The end result of the situation you asked about is entirely in your hands! You can affect the outcome by taking a proactive approach to solving any challenges. Stand in your own power and have confidence that you have what it takes to bring about a happy ending!
Don't wait for someone else to rush in and take charge. In order to come to a successful conclusion, this situation requires your unique perspective and experience.
The time has come to let go of this situation. Stop focusing on how or when it will be solved or even why it occurred. Relationships that are unhealthy or unfulfilling should be released in order to allow something better to come along. Don't worry—Source and your angels have everything under control.
A key aspect to manifesting your desires is to ask for what you want and then to release it to Heaven. If you've drawn this card, you may be holding on too tightly to the way your dreams will unfold. Make a wish, and then leave the rest to your angels!
LISTEN TO YOUR INTUITION
Your intuition is completely reliable and accurate at this time. Listen to your own inner guidance and you can't go wrong. You can be certain that the messages you're receiving from your angels are real and trustworthy.
Have faith in your feelings about the circumstances you're experiencing. Your insights into other people and their true feelings or motives are perfectly accurate. There is no need to question what you know is true!
LOOK FOR A SIGN
Your angels have a very special and specific answer to your question. You can expect to see signs right away that will have deep meaning to you. Many people see white feathers to indicate that their angels are with them. Or they may smell scents from their childhood that they connect with a family member.
Signs require focused attention, so be awake to the possibilities. Don't mistake synchronistic events for mere "coincidences" at this time. They are a message especially designed for you!
Trying to come up with an intellectual answer to your concerns hasn't been successful. That's because the solutions you seek can only be found by going within, through meditation or inner spiritual work.
You may also gather insights from your nighttime dreams, as your subconscious creates solutions for you that are not available to your waking mind.
The answer to your question is no. You may gather additional information by asking another question surrounding this issue and drawing another card.
The response to your inquiry is a firm tio! You needn't worry, though, as you will see why this was the perfect answer as time goes by.
NO NEED TO WORRY
Your worries and concerns regarding your question are unnecessary. Your angels have the situation well in hand, and everything is going to turn out perfectly!
Obsessing over this subject isn't helpful. The energy of fear and worry only slows the eventual manifesting of your desires. Visualize loving and happy
outcomes, and keep your thoughts positive. Very soon you will wonder why you were worrying about this at all!
NOT THE RIGHT TIME
This is not the right time presently for what you're inquiring about. This answer is not a "no," just a "not yet." Have patience. Your angels will give you a sign when the timing is perfect.
Positive growth and expansion is on the horizon for you. This opportunity may bring with it inspiration and insight, or it could be the chance you've been waiting for to take action on ideas you already have.
You may be seeking to manifest the chance to create changes in your career,
buy or sell a home, or bring romance into your life. Whatever your desires, your angels are about to open a door of possibilities for you. Step right through!
The challenges you're inquiring about are going to come to an end. Conflict will cease and soon be replaced with harmony. There will be a sense of peace shared by all, even if some only "agree to disagree."
Disagreements will be resolved in your favor. This includes struggles with employers, legal battles, arbitration, and
even strife among family or friends. Be forgiving and understanding with those who may have been in error. Allow peace to come, with grace and dignity for everyone.
This is the perfect timing for the situation you've asked about. Move forward with confidence! Don't delay or hesitate, because an energy gateway is presently open for you. Conditions are ripe. Even if you don't feel prepared, rest assured that you are!
There is an element of your plan that should be reevaluated. Take some time to really go through your project or proposal thoroughly. Share your intentions with a trusted friend or advisor who can give you objective feedback. Ask your angels for guidance.
This is not the moment to make the change in your life that you're considering. A better time will come, or you'll realize that you wish to choose a different kind of transformation for yourself.
This is a period of recovery and healing for you. The challenging emotions that you've been dealing with will fade away with time. Although it may be difficult to see now, there is a joyful future awaiting you. But for now, take all the time you need to regain your strength.
This card can also mean that your recovery is nearly finished or already complete. Send words of gratitude to Heaven and begin planning for the next exciting phase of your life!
OOC 67 OOOC
The angels are asking you to keep an optimistic attitude! There is a very positive momentum beginning to build toward the creation of your desires. You're speeding your dreams along by maintaining a cheerful and confident demeanor.
It may seem as though your plans are taking a long time to manifest, but very soon you will see a change. Don't allow yourself to lose hope when your dreams are so close to coming true!
A very important relationship is about to enter, or has recently entered, your life. This is the romance you have been waiting for! Like all partnerships, there may be ups and downs, but don't let that deter you or shake your confidence. Have faith that love is coming into your life to stay!
If your question was about a current relationship, you can expect the parties to become closer to one another. Past disagreements will fade away, and trust will grow. All relationships have peaks and valleys. This card indicates an upward movement to a new level of dedication and intimacy. This can include engagement, marriage, or a form of recommitment to one another.
Congratulations! You are on the road to success. You needn't have any reservations about your situation, as it's going to work out beautifully!
Part of living a successful life is taking care of yourself. It's wonderful to have many things to be grateful for, but
make sure you don't wear yourself down by working too hard. Take time to enjoy peace in your life.
The time has come to take action! Your angels are waiting for you to take the next step so that they can assist you along the path to your dreams. Do away with procrastination and uncertainty. In your heart, you know what to do. Get going!
Whether you're focused upon career, relationships, or some other topic, the fulfillment of your wishes isn't going to just fall into your lap! You must be actively focused on the pursuit of what you want.
THE SITUATION WILL IMPROVE
Your angels want you to know that they are aware that things look difficult right now. However, the situation is going to improve. It may take some time, and there will most likely be some hard work ahead of you. But the effort you put forth
will be worth it, and things are going to get better!
Now is not the time to give up on wounded friendships or ailing relationships. There is still hope for the future. Take heart, and c ntinue to work toward a partnership where both parties are fulfilled and happy in the future.
Heaven has something wonderful in mind for you! However, it's not the same thing you have planned. Ask yourself what you would rather have: the very thing you're asking for or something that
would make you much happier and more fulfilled?
Sometimes the Divine has joys in store for us that we could never imagine on our own. Open your mind and heart to the possibility that you deserve even more than what you're asking for. Trust your angels to guide you in new and exciting directions!
This is a time for trust. Sometimes there is no yes or no to a question. There are situations where we are better served by not knowing what is to come so that the miracle can unfold before our very eyes.
Like children opening a gift, part of the magic of our lives is found in the joy of surprise! Trust that your angels have something amazing in store for you even if they can't quite tell you yet what it is.
The situation you have asked about is unlikely to occur as you are imagining it. There may be a different version of events that will take place. Or it may be that what you've asked about is simply not in your highest, greatest good.
Place your focus on an alternative possibility. Open your eyes to different opportunities. Be willing to experience a unique and more uplifting outcome than what you had planned for yourself.
Your situation is going to require a little patience. Your angels are not saying "no," but they are saying "not yet." Sometimes Heaven needs a little extra time to make all the pieces fall perfectly into place.
What you are asking for may have an effect on the lives of others. When that occurs, it can take additional preparation to make sure that everyone's needs are seen to. Be patient so that all who are involved can have the experience they're meant to have.
WITHIN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS
In the next few months, what you are asking about will occur. Divine timing means that other people's freewill choices are also involved, so keep the faith while all of the pieces of this puzzle come together and the situation resolves itself beautifully.
NEXT FEW WEEKS
What you asked about will happen this month, or soon thereafter. Your patience is rewarded!
The answer to your question is yes. If you want a more detailed reply to your inquiry, you can ask additional questions and pull more cards.
Bravo! The decision you've made is the right one. There's no need to continue to sort through additional options. You know what to do, and you should move forward with your plans!
You've made the correct choice for your personal growth and development;
however, some decisions can be a true challenge. If the task ahead of you is daunting or even sad, then proceed with your plans in a way that is life affirming and self-loving. Ask your angels to be with you every step of the way, and don't hesitate to call upon friends and family for support.
All your past experiences have led to this moment. You've studied and grown spiritually in many ways. There is nothing more to do. You're ready to move forward and to embrace the person you know in your heart you are meant to be.
The world is anxiously awaiting the contributions that following your life purpose will provide. You may have to put yourself first in this situation. It's time to do what is right for you.
