Thank you to all you lovely people who put yourselves out there and shared your insight on the cards and crystals in the Intuition Game.
It was wonderful reading through all of the comments once the cards were revealed………. and seeing how accurate everyone’s intuition is!
We all perceive according to our own upbringing and experiences. Fun games like this show that we may all interpret things differently, but doesn’t make one person’s intuition right and another person’s wrong. If we hold the thought of either ourselves or someone else in mind, then we are intuiting from our own, personal perspective in that moment and it will be right for us. Simply take what works and leave the rest. You’re all amazing!! 🙂
Below I reveal the three cards and their exact messages from the OSHO book, alongside my own interpretation of how the crystals relate to the cards.
I’ve been working with this particular deck of cards for over 13 years now and they are so empowering (thank goodness none of the difficult cards came up in this game ~ phew!!) 😉
CARD 1 ~ Major Arcana Number III
Crystal: Black Tourmaline
From the alchemy of fire and water below to the divine light entering from above, the figure in this card is literally ‘possessed by’ the creative force. Really, the experience of creativity is an entry into the mysterious. Technique, expertise and knowledge are just tools; the key is to abandon oneself to the energy that fuels the birth of all things.
This energy has no form or structure, yet all the forms and structures come out of it. It makes no difference what particular form your creativity takes – it can be painting or singing, planting a garden or making a meal. The important thing is to be open to what wants to be expressed through you. Remember that we don’t possess our creations; they do not belong to us. True creativity arises from a union with the divine, with the mystical and the unknowable. Then it is both a joy for the creator and a blessing to others.
Interpretation: Several things come to mind with this card being paired with Black Tourmaline. If you were drawn to this card the most, then I would say there is a wealth of ideas and inspiration available to you right now. Creativity means creating anything….whether that be a good meal, a garden, a piece of artwork or music, a business, a concept, a charity event or even a child. To be drawn to this card indicates that we need to open up and let our ideas flow from an unhindered state of mind. Black Tourmaline comes to deflect other’s opinions or negativity so we can keep moving forward with our ideas. Black Tourmaline can also protect our ideas and the creative process from external energy, but when paired with this card, it usually means it is deflecting negativity from our own inner critic (yes, we all have one and it tries very hard to keep us small!).
If you were repelled or felt uneasy with this card, thats OK. We all go through cycles in life and being pushed away from this card means you’re more likely to be in a place where doing the normal, grounded, human, day t0 day things and just getting along in life is perfect. There will come a stage in the future when you will be sparked by something new or creative.
CARD 2 ~ Flowering ~ The Queen of Rainbows
Crystals: Optical Calcite & Apophyllite
The Queen of Rainbows is like a fantastic plant that has reached the apex of its flowering and its colors. She is very sexual, very alive, and full of possibilities. She snaps her fingers to the music of love, and her zodiac necklace is placed in a way that Venus lies over her heart. The sleeves of her garment contain an abundance of seeds, and as the wind blows the seeds will be scattered to take root where they may. She is not concerned whether they land on the soil or on the rocks – she is just spreading them everywhere in sheer celebration of life and love. Flowers fall on her from above, in harmony with her own flowering, and the waters of emotion swirl playfully beneath the flower on which she sits.
You might feel like a garden of flowers right now, showered with blessings from everywhere. Welcome the bees, invite the birds to drink your nectar. Spread your joy around for all to share.
Interpretation: What a beautiful card! If you were drawn to Number 2, then there are blessings around you on some level and it will feel really good to stop and acknowledge them. Sometimes they come in disguise or if they’re spiritual lessons, then these blessings may often feel like a curse. So it depends on what state of mind you’re in at the moment.
Apophyllite and Optical Calcite both offer a strong connection to Universal energy ~ the energy of all things, that has no label. It can be from Spirit, Angelic, Cosmic, Ethereal, Earth based….there are so many different forms and both of these crystals connect us to that source. They bring clarity and a purity to what we are processing so if you aren’t flowering quite yet, working with these two crystals will help connect you more.
CARD 3 ~ Adventure ~ Page of Rainbows
Crystals: Iron Pyrite, Honey Calcite, Natural Citrine
When we are truly in a spirit of adventure, we are moving just like this child. Full of trust, out of the darkness of the forest into the rainbow of the light, we go step by step, drawn by our sense of wonder into the unknown.
Adventure really has nothing to do with plans and maps and programs and organization. The Page of Rainbows represents a quality that can come to us anywhere – at home or in the office, in the wilderness or in the city, in a creative project or in our relationships with others. Whenever we move into the new and unknown with the trusting spirit of a child, innocent and open and vulnerable, even the smallest things of life can become the greatest adventures.
Interpretation: This last card caused quite a reaction. Some people were drawn to and excited by it, others were wary and unsure. And that is perfectly OK. We can’t always be in a state of adventure and ready to try new things. Sometimes we are still processing something that has happened recently and need to finish one thing before moving on to the next. Some of us take time to accept change. For those who have been drawn to this card, it is a reminder to tap into the power of our Inner Child as we move towards an adventure. It is also advice on how to view something in your life at the moment……if you can change your perspective and come at it with a sense of adventure, with the openness of a child, if you can share a little of your vulnerability, it will alter things greatly for you.
Paired with three solar plexus crystals, they are a massive boost to our sense of trust in the world, in ourselves and in the bigger picture. They open us up, but bring grounding and stability at the same time. This allows us to move toward the new with more self confidence, self esteem, trust and a good, healthy dose of fun & laughter too!
I hope you enjoyed the fun of the game. Thank you to you and to the Universe for giving such beautiful, positive messages!
Have a wonderful day and weekend. It’s the last one before Santa hops on his sleigh!!!
