Using Your Cards for Inspiration

Here are 8 ways to use your inspiration cards throughout the year to gain insight, inspiration, and creative power.

 

1. Pull one at the start of each week and place on your altar to help guide you.

2. Choose one each morning to remind you of the qualities you want to bring into your day.

3. Use each one as an art journaling prompt. What do you uncover when you create a page with each word as the theme?

4. Take a photo of each card and upload them to the slide show feature of your computer screen saver. Then have them shuffle through on repeat to keep the words in your line of vision.

5. Art journal about the cards at midpoints in the year (as the seasons change, halfway mark, etc.). How does your life feel different from having them as guides? What do you need to do to bring them in more?

6. Share your cards on social media (Facebook, Instagram) to inspire others.

7. Place the cards around your house where you'll come across them throughout your day or week. Finding them is like a gift to yourself of beauty and also of awareness.

8. Use them like other meaningful card decks (Oracle, tarot, or Angel). Ask the Universe a question, choose a card, and cypher the meaning in context of the question. Let your inspiration word cards guide you.
