I love affirmations and use “oracle” decks to provide a positive boost in the morning or whenever I need a lift.  It’s my way of telling the Universe I’m open to listening to their message:  “Have at it!”  “I’m listening!”  “Tell me more!”  I hope you enjoy as I introduce some of my favorite cards and quotes in my newsletters!  These make great gifts for any occasion as well as can be used as inspirational hand-outs in class if you are a yoga instructor.

We’ve talked about the heart being “a key intuitive center, responding even to information about the future” and intuition developing more strongly with the opening of the heart chakra.  This deck is another deck by Shakti Gawain on Developing Intuition.  (I highlighted her Creative Visualization deck back in my May 2010 newsletter).  As I mentioned in May, Shakti Gawain is an author I’ve admired for over twenty years.  I own many of her works, and have not been disappointed by one of them.

As I reviewed the deck for which cards to highlight here, I was drawn to the ones that talk about checking in with the body since that is exactly what I tell my yoga students.

Description:

Card #1: Checking in with yourself each day can be extremely powerful.  You don’t need much time.  With practice you can learn to quickly and easily drop out of your mind and into a deeper place inside.

Card #2: Inner guidance can come in the form of words, mental images, or feeling impressions.  You may feel a radiant warmth, or sense energy flowing through you.

In my first newsletter, I highlighted one of my favorite decks—a wonderfully whimsical, inspiring, thought-provoking Enrichuals© deck, created by local author, artist and creativity coach, Suzanne Vadnais Monson.  Refer to the November newsletter archive for a sample card.  Suzanne has graciously agreed to let me make them available on Better Day Yoga’s product page online!  https://betterdayyoga.com/products.htm
