Inner Healing Spread Description
Tarot cards are so good at knowing what gnaws at us, and art is uniquely suited to heal it. Because often what traumatizes us is not the event but the story we tell ourselves over and over about the event.
By taking us out of the wordy logical brain and bringing us home to color pattern and emotion, the cards can empathize with us on a whole other level.
A deeper more meaningful level.
Relax and let the cards fall into place to support you in just the right areas.
Interpreting the Inner Healing Spread
This card spread works really well with Oracle decks. Angels love to get into the healing space so if those sorts of decks appeal to you this is a great spread to use in conjunction with them.
I usually lay down the middle card first and then lay “What you need to Release” followed by “What you need to learn”. Then “What you need to Embrace” and followed by “What you need to forgive”.
The triangular energy tends to work really well with this layout.
The main thing with this spread is that the injured person begins to see it as a journey to recovery and not just an event.
Show them their strength with the fact that they can take lessons from it to be stronger for it in the future.
The reason we get stuck in trauma is that somewhere along the line we were made to feel powerless.
Let the images of the cards work on the person you are reading for and let them tell their story if they feel led.
Often the most healing thing you can do for someone is listen. To create that safe space where they can fall apart and recover and not be shamed for it.
It is a powerful thing to hand someone a piece of their soul back.
Do your best to make them feel empowered to take charge of their own healing journey from here on out and let the cards do the rest.
It’s your Spread now so play with it and let me know if it inspires you to do some great work or just seems valuable to help you settle down and be more productive. Most of all have fun and enjoy your deck!
