  • 😂Continuing with you can’t make this stuff up, I asked what do I need to heal to be in alignment with my purpose. OSHUN, in alignment. “You can’t expect the Great Goddess to be generous with you if you show her you don’t trust in the flow of her generosity. Now is the time to do the opposite of what you fear.” My goblins♥️

  • Perfect and timely message. Thank for this reminder of the path to follow. Love the Enchanted Map deck-it feels like home. Blessings

  • This is perfect for my low mood today, and the fact that my challenged stepdaughter (bless her) has moved back in again (no broken leg this time)
    I am beating myself up and I needed to hear this today.
    Simple clarity of where I need to be directing my energy.
    Bless you 💜

    I was drawn to you Colette because you speak my language and it was because of sobriety! I have almost 31 years sober and have been living a spiritual journey ever since! Love that! Thank you for showing up on my journey 🙏🏼🙏🏼
    Here’s what I got!

    What do I need to know about moving myself aside so that my purpose can find me?

    “It’s time to clear the clutter to make way for better things.”

    Cleaning House
    When you see the Cleaning House card in a reading, it’s time to de-clutter your life. Get rid of unwanted things in your physical home, and release what you no longer want or truly need. Is there any unfinished business you should address? Thoughts, memories, and emotional baggage must be swept out of your house as well. Your conscience must be clear for you to move freely in the world.
    Celebrate a spring-cleaning and feel the freedom as you make way for much better things. Look at what you’ve resisted discarding and be honest about its value. Be honest. Clean house.
    (Exactly What I have been doing a lot of lately)

    What do I need to heal to be in alignment with my purpose?

    Sad Embrace

    “Loss is a part of life. Let go and allow time to heal you.”

    You may be entering into a period where loss is a theme. Perhaps you’re having to let go of a long-cherished dream. If so, take heart, for this ending may have been for your highest good. A better and more powerful dream will be realized in your life if you can accept the loss.
    Relationships based on faulty foundations are meant to end at this time. Disappointment is a form of perception. If your expectations weren’t met, a sense of loss arises, along with sadness and grief. Express these emotions. Tears are like healing rain that can restore life to a parched inner landscape. Growth is always assured. Whatever the loss—however great it is—let go, and experience your feelings so that you may soon see what beauty lies ahead. (This is 5 years since I lost my son and have been getting better, I gained a lot of weight and procrastinated so much over the years since he left and decided that this year I’m gonna live! I am releasing weight and stress much less, I feel better in doing this, it’s been quite a long road)

    What do I need to know about myself?

    Heal the Ouch

    “Forgiveness is the healer of the soul.”

    This is a time for great soothing of the heart, body, soul, and mind, as this card indicates that healing will be prevalent in your life now. If you feel drawn to study the healing arts, you’ll be successful in developing your natural capacity to restore others to wellness. However, the message may be that you’re being called to change your behaviors in order to heal the earth. Perhaps you’ll switch to a cruelty-free diet, eating less meat; or perhaps you’ll pay more attention to how much water or electricity you use. You’re asked to be conscious of your footprint on the sacred earth and all of life and to commit to the healing path.
    The Heal the “Ouch” card may also be an indicator of old wounds and broken bonds being mended. Reconciliations are possible now. Let bygones be bygones.

    How perfect 💕

    What do I need to know about moving myself aside so that my purpose can find me?
    MS The Heart of Sky 24
    Here it is simply to trust the details to the Universe, yet actively set my intentions with a consistence and a persistence rooted in my authentic, inspired desire.

    What do I need to heal to be in alignment with my purpose?
    GPO Parvati Devotion 41
    For me my continued healing is to maintain spiritually, and recover from my ancestral conditioning to ignore my Inner Voice…
    “Act as if you believe that what is for you won’t go past you, and that what must proceed will do so without your interference.“

    What do I need to know about myself?
    WOTO Treasure Island 9
    “Are you avoiding success because you will grow so tall that others may want to cut you down?“
    Coming out of the dark, and now being seen is new. In order to be new, I must continue to shed the vines of antiquity that still cling to my gifts.
    “Are you avoiding success because you will grow so tall that others may want to cut you down? of antiquity I’ve let grow around my gifts.
    “You are being challenged to change the way you see the world and move from a perception of limitations to a perception of abundance. Take a risk”

  • Karen Stair says:

    This is great news! I really needed to hear this. I’ve been trying too hard. I can work on myself and let it go to the Universe. Thank you for this wisdom, Colette!

  • Lori Nieman says:

    I have done 2 readings for myself today. The final card in each spoke directly to addiction. This is what has been keeping me “in the dark”. Totally confident of my purpose finding me now. So simple! Thank you

  • I just retired and moved away to a new province to be with my family. Im feeling lost and don’t know what my purpose is and am rather depressed by what is actually shaping up here. Not what I envisioned at all for my new phase of life. So this has perfect timing as a lesson to explore. Thank you Colette as once again you appear to me with the perfect topic. Love to you🙏🌹🌹🌹

  • Talk about great cards and a fabulous story in motion!
    *Moving myself aside – MOUNTAIN: I can flow around any obstacle, I adapt.

    *What to heal to be in alignment w/ my purpose – ROCK BOTTOM: I find freedom through SURRENDER and ACCEPTANCE. I have hit a brick wall (see Mountain). I admit that I have no idea what to do next other than release, let go completely and wait for the magic and miracles to come through synchronicity.

    *What do I need to know about myself – Unexpected Visitor (could this be my purpose that I am waiting for ???): I expect the unexpected and am prepared for miracles in my life. I detach from outcomes and wait for Spirit to surprise me. Unexpected detours will lead me to new adventures.

  • Such a timeless topic and so perfect for those of us who are always questioning our purpose! Happy to get a chance to use my Enchanted Map deck which I love but don’t use as often as the others. ❤️❤️ Colette! ❤️❤️ Oracle Circle!

  • WENDY Fuller says:

    Thankyou so much Colette. Still doing my best to learn this. My wounded self must still be healing. Xoxo

  • Denise Weber says:

    Thank you Colette❤️ I so needed this lesson right now!

  • Susie Adcock says:

    Thank you for this video. Your timing was perfect. This has been on my mind for months and now I know to be present and it will arrive. I also have another reason to buy yet another one of your decks. 😄

  • Kim Thompson says:

    Well, I had a lovely reply but I couldn’t post the picture and couldn’t delete it either. I also couldn’t copy and paste my reply to do it again so had to cancel it. 🙁

    Needless to say, this reading came at a perfect time for me. Trying to figure out what to do in the next stage of my life after retirement. There are a few choices but I have to stop trying and let my purpose come to me. Slow and steady wins the race. Let go of control. Also, channel my negative self talk into new stories I tell myself, I can, I will, I am a strong, capable woman. 🙂

    Oracle Cards can support you through the process of getting out of you own way by offering insights and things to reflect on as you do the work. These questions offer a great place to begin:
    What do I need to know about moving myself aside so that my purpose can find me?
    What do I need to heal to be in alignment with my purpose?
    What do I need to know about myself?
    If it resonates please use this thread to share your insights!
