I’m excited to share a new reading from The Universe Has Your Back Deck!

As you may know, the card deck is filled with prayers and affirmations from my book The Universe Has Your Back. My best friend, Micaela Ezra, created the watercolor art with so much joy and love.

Ever since the deck came out, I have loved seeing Spirit Junkies’ social media posts of their daily card readings and favorite cards! Your photos and words inspire me so much.

Today I want to offer us a group reading for the month ahead! Let these cards inspire you in your spiritual practices and daily life. I began this reading by inviting in the guides of the highest truth and compassion to show us cards to represent our past, present and future.

When you do your own readings you can begin by setting an intention. It can be as simple as, “Thank you for giving me guidance today.” You can set your intention as you shuffle the cards and then choose one or more.

Here are the cards I drew for May 2018. (If you are reading this post at a later date, trust that you were guided here at this time for a reason.)

Card 1: Representing our past experiences

I always trust the direction of the Universe and know I’m being guided.

This card reminds us that when we ask for guidance, the Universe may throw us a curveball. Sometimes divine lessons come in odd forms!

The truth is, every situation can be seen as a powerful opportunity to allow the Universe to redirect our path. When we pray for guidance and realign with the energy of love, we become receptive to guidance that may be far different from our own plan.

Our only job is to trust that whatever we’ve been guided toward is exactly the direction we need. Even situations that appear to be obstacles are actually opportunities.

Think about recent past experiences. Were you served a spiritual assignment? Did you receive guidance in some unexpected way? Did an obstacle turn out to be a detour in the right direction? You have an opportunity now to recognize that divine guidance you received and feel deep gratitude for it.

Always trust the direction of the Universe and know you’re being guided toward love.

Card 2: Representing the present moment

When I lean on the faith of the Universe, peace becomes real.

This is a powerful reminder that in any given moment we can choose peace. In the present moment we can lean on our faith of the Universe instead of the faith of the world.

It can be very easy to lose our faith in the Universe. Maybe you’re experiencing this right now.

It can happen when you are going through a situation that seems to be out of your control. This can be anything from a frightening diagnosis or the loss of a loved one to a very stressful time at work. An alarming news story is enough to trigger a sense of powerlessness.

Even when everything seems to be going great, we can lose faith. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve talked to people who have manifested awesome lives but get knocked down by fear. They tell themselves stories like, ”This is too good to be true,” or “It’s too good to last.” Inevitably, their certainty proves them right.

Think about your present circumstances. How are you placing your faith in the world instead of in the Universe? What story are you telling yourself?

It’s important to understand that we are programmed to have more faith in fear than certainty in love. Go easy on yourself. Be the gentle, nonjudgmental witness. And then use this card to remind yourself that at any moment you can choose again.

When you place your trust in a power greater than you, you can be certain that you are always being guided. With that certainty you will feel peace.

Card 3: Representing what we want to be, step into and create in the future

I recognize that I have chosen fear, and I choose again. I choose love.

This is such a beautiful reading! This card guides us to recognize when we have chosen fear and reminds us that we can always choose again.

It’s really important to remember that we will get knocked out of alignment all the time in life! We will choose fear. Sometimes it happens many times in just one day.

That’s okay. Being on a spiritual path doesn’t mean we never experience fear. In fact, if you try to avoid fear all the time, you’re actually letting fear guide your every thought and move.

Expect that you will choose fear. Accept it. You are human. What matters is that you turn to your spiritual practices and come back to love. The more you lean on your faith and your spiritual tools, the faster you will be able to come back to love. That is what matters.

When you notice that you’ve detoured into fear, you can simply say a prayer like this:

“I recognize that I have chosen fear. I forgive this thought and I choose again. I choose love.”

To let peace settle in, I recommend following your prayer with a minute of meditation if you can. This minute of stillness will quiet your mind so that you can receive intuitive guidance.

I hope you enjoyed this reading from The Universe Has Your Back Deck! I hope the messages on these cards have reminded you that you are always being guided, that leaning on the faith of the Universe will bring you peace, and that in any moment you can choose love over fear.

If you’re ready to strengthen your relationship with the Universe and transform your fear into faith, get your copy of my #1 New York Times bestselling book The Universe Has Your Back!

Each story and lesson in the book guides you to release the blocks happiness, security and clear direction. The lessons will help you relinquish the need to control so you can relax into a sense of certainty and freedom. You’ll learn to stop chasing life and truly live. Making the shift from fear to faith will give you a sense of power in a world that all too often makes us feel powerless.

My commitment with The Universe Has Your Back is to wake up as many people as possible to their connection to faith and joy. In that connection, we can be guided to our true purpose: to be love and spread love.
