This is such a beautiful, empowering spread! The message for the rest of this week is to take time to listen to your body, and the Angels provided two ways to do this with Card #2 and #3.
1.) Honor anything that popped up for you when you looked/read the description of Card #1: Health-Care Change...maybe your attention rested on certain words, you could have felt some emotional / body sensations triggered by certain words (clairscentience), an image of a type of doctor or healing practice or body part might have come to mind (clairvoyance)....your may have heard in your head a body part or illness named, or a song with a stylistic or lyrical message could have started playing in your mind (clairaudience).
2.) Set aside time to do the Practices on Card #2 and Card #3. They (wonderfully) showed up in that order for a.) Grounding (red, base chakra) and then b.) Connecting and opening your heart (green, 4th chakra) so your inner guidance could more clearly come through, from a grounded space.
Would love to hear what comes up for you and about your experience(s) doing the Practices in the comments below!
