Slowly but surely, I am writing my guidebook for my oracle/affirmation cards. Here is a little sample. Enjoy 🙂 ❤️✏️
Go only where you are loved.

During a difficult transition in my life, when I was convinced I had lost my home after my first marriage ended, a young, gifted group counselor told us the word “home” names a place where the people who live there have to take you in when there’s no other place for you to go. Estranged husbands, wives, lovers, and friends don’t have to take you in when the world goes up in flames. But there is always someone who will shelter you without question or judgement.
This is about going home, but it may not be the home you think you want. It may be the home that deep down you know you need. You just haven’t realized it yet.
Leave the place where you may feel expendable or devalued. You are not an obligation. You are not convenient. That’s not how human beings should view the hearts and minds of others.
Go where you know you’re needed and wanted. Stay where you are loved despite all of your faults and poor decisions. That’s when you’ll be home.
So I did a thing. I made my own affirmation/oracle card deck using my own artwork and photography. I just wanted to get a sense of who would consider getting this deck for yourself or somebody else. This is my only copy right now, and if I had more made I would have to sell them at $25. It’s a 42 card deck, though not all are pictured here (keeping the rest a surprise 🙂) and a digital guidebook with accompanying stories and poems is forthcoming. Let me know what you all think. 😊❤️🤩🌎💨🌊🔥🌹
Every damaged race,
Every forest tree
may change to young mourning,
female & male bodies
not at all unusual.
Stay safe and healthy, my friends 🙏🏻
