Today I wanted to share my current favourite tarot spread with you all! This is a spread designed to help you communicate with a menagerie of beings, from deities and angels, to spirit guides and even the universe! A great thing about this spread is that you can do it as little or often as you like, if you want to check in daily with your spiritual team for guidance then it’s perfect, but it’s equally perfect as a way to seek guidance from your guardian angels every now and again.

So lets move onto the spread! This is a three card reading and you can use any deck you like, even digital ones like phone apps work! What I like to do is ask whoever I’m trying to contact to communicate with me through the deck, then I begin shuffling while thinking of my questions. Once it “feels” right I stop, cut the deck and draw three cards.

CARD ONE:  WHAT ISSUE ARE “MY GUIDES” HELPING ME WITH NOW?

CARD TWO: WHAT DO “MY GUIDES” WANT ME TO KNOW?

CARD THREE: HOW CAN I BETTER CONNECT WITH “MY GUIDES”?

I’ve put “my guides” in quotation marks as a marker that you can replace this bit with whatever fits for you, it could be your angels or the name of a deity you work with! What I love about tarot spreads is that they are pretty damn versatile, once you find a particular one that resonates with you it can be chopped and changed in any way to fit your intention or question!

FUN IDEA
Research into a pop-pantheon or pop culture-pantheon! Once you identify some popular culture characters or historical figures you idolise, you can ever communicate with them on relevant matters! Getting art advice from Frida Kahlo, heck yes!


I use this spread all the time and find it really comforting and helpful, so I would love if you would try it out and let me know how it goes for you!

I found this spread online a long time ago but can’t find the source right now, so if you’re the creator please let me know so I can credit you!

Affirmations are a relatively new edition to my spiritual practice but have already proven to be fun and very helpful! Essentially an affirmation is a short sentence that you repeat over and over until you start truly believing it. They can motivate and inspire you depending on the affirmation you use, and through the power of the subconscious mind these short powerful sentences begin to affect our habits, behaviours and more! The fun comes from the creativity behind it, of course you can google “Affirmations for blah blah” but I find it really fun to come up with my own affirmations as they then feel more personal. I encourage you to come up with a few affirmations for yourself if this resonates with you, but if not or you would like a starting point, then I have decided to share three affirmations that I use throughout my day to help me in specific situations!

Sometimes we just need an extra boost of confidence and I find this affirmation helps me feel confident and to trust myself. I struggle a lot with confidence and self-belief so this one has been super helpful, especially in stressful situations!

This one is great for when I’m feeling sad, lonely and just generally poopy. Repeating this over and over makes my mind think about all the people in my life who support me with their love, which then makes me feel grateful for them and that I am able to reach out to them when I need to. It’s not always a magic fix, but I find that it definitely helps!

As a very nervous and shy person I am also prone to becoming stressed easily. This affirmation allows me to almost “step out of myself” for a minute and just become mindful. Sometimes the stresses in life are really silly little things that seem bigger than what they are, this is great for looking at situations through another perspective.

So those are the three affirmations that I use the most throughout my day, I have a few more that I use but they’re either creativity or spirituality related so I’ll talk about them in another post! I hope these were even just a teeny bit helpful or even better, have inspired you to write your own affirmations!
