This week's cards from The Sacred Self-Care Oracle deck show more ways to include self-care in your life. Some ways are pretty obvious, and you are probably already doing them, while others may seem a bit unusual, but are worth a try. Here are the next batch of cards!
Receiving Positive Affirmations is a sign to speak to yourself with love and compassion and speak to those you meet with the same attitude. Positive affirmations are all about telling yourself all the wonderful things that you love about the person you are. Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are beautiful, or after a hard day's work, remind yourself how great you are at your job.
When Sing appears in your reading, it wants you to use your voice to bring joy to your life. Singing is such a wonderful way to relax and have fun. No one has to hear you if you are worried about others listening in, but just putting on a song that you love and singing your heart out is a fabulous way to unwind. Next time you are alone, put some music on and sing!
Pleasure is all about knowing that you are worthy of any and all pleasures in your life. Whether it be physical, mental, or emotional pleasure, allow yourself to really enjoy the moment and embrace the feelings surrounding you. Whatever it is that you like, don't feel ashamed and go for what makes you feel amazing. Bringing any pleasure into your life will make it much more interesting.
Nourish Your Temple
Receiving Nourish Your Temple is a sign to take care of your body by eating healthy food, drinking lots of water, and talking to yourself positively. Learning to eat healthily is a separate journey for everyone, but when you find a diet that works for you, you will feel amazing. Drinking lots of water will help you feel energised and positive self-talk will show yourself how much you love the person you have become.
Plan A Holiday
When Plan A Holiday appears in your reading, it wants you to find adventure and inspiration everywhere! Planning a holiday can makes you feel excited for the future and create a sense of wonder that you may have not felt in a while. If going abroad isn't something you want to do, you can plan a staycation at home and make it as fun or relaxing as you want.
Sex is a card that reminds you of all the pleasures and benefits that come from being in the moment with your partner. Experience all of the pleasures you have been hoping for and explore your body with a sense of comfort and desire. This card is all about remaining in the present and enjoying the special moments with the person you feel connected to. Have fun and use this as a way to unwind and forget about any stresses.
Receiving Read is a sign to expand your mind by reading all of the books that spark your interest. Reading is such a wonderful way to relax and learn at the same time. Everyone has a different taste in books, some people love fiction, while others prefer non-fiction. Whatever kind of book makes you excited, make sure you read it and take in what it is trying to say.
When Rest appears in your reading, it wants you to recharge your energy by getting some well deserved rest. We often hear that we should not rest too often and should be working as hard as possible all the time. This is not true. Some people need more rest than others and it is no one's business to judge what someone else does. If you feel like you need to rest, then rest.
Music is all about singing and listening to the music all around you. Listening to music makes us feel alive and can lift your mood in seconds. Everyone has different tastes in music, so whatever song makes you feel happy, be sure to play it whenever you need a pick-me-up! Sing your heart out and move to the melody you hear when listening to your favourite songs.
