Oracle decks are a powerful tool for exploring the unconscious mind and accessing insight and guidance. When used in conjunction with dream analysis, oracle decks can provide valuable insights into the symbols and archetypes present in dreams, and help to illuminate the hidden meanings and messages contained within them. In this blog post, we will provide a step-by-step guide on using an oracle deck to explain dreams.
Step 1: Choose an Oracle Deck
The first step in using an oracle deck to assist with dreams is to choose a deck that resonates with you. There are many different types of oracle decks available, each with its own unique set of symbols and archetypes. Look for a deck that feels intuitively right for you and that aligns with your personal spiritual beliefs and values.
Step 2: Establish a Connection with the Deck
Once you have chosen an oracle deck, take some time to establish a connection with it. Shuffle the cards and hold them in your hands, focusing your attention on the energy of the deck. Take a few deep breaths and ask the deck to provide insight and guidance into your dreams.
Step 3: Draw a Card
After establishing a connection with the deck, choose the dream you would like to gain insight on. While you hold this dream in your awareness, draw a card from the deck with the intention of gaining insight into your dream. Once pulled, hold the card in your hands and focus on the image and symbols present on the card.
Step 4: Interpret the Card in the Context of Your Dream
Using the image and symbols present on the card as a starting point to interpret the context of your dream. Look for similarities between the symbols on the card and the symbols present in your dream. Consider how the message of the card relates to the themes and messages of your dream.
Step 5: Reflect on the Message
If the deck has a booklet to assist with interpretation, read what each card you have pulled represents. Reflect on the message of the card and how it relates to your dream. Consider how the patterns in nature can offer insight and guidance on the challenges and issues that you are facing in your waking life. Journal your thoughts and reflections on the card and its significance for your dream.
Step 6: Repeat the Process
Repeat this process if needed, drawing a few additional cards from the deck and using them to gain further insight into your dream. Remember to trust your first trust your own interpretation and intuition and then allow the messages of the cards to further guide your interpretation of your dream.
Step 7: Avoid Rushing into Action
Dreams do not require action, they are more like messengers, informing you of what is already occurring in your life, subconscious or hidden parts of self. There is nothing you need to “do” from a dream - the patterning is already underway and the dream is allowing you a glimpse of what is occurring. Try not to make a big change or rush into a different direction from your interpretation of the dream until you are very adept at dream work.
