TRULY KNOW MYSELF
Today, I think of myself as an expert generalist. I know a little about a lot of things. Mind you, I wasn't always this way. Years ago, I had a severe food allergy that made me feel like I had food poisoning off and on for days. When a doctor told me I would never be able to eat eggs again, I heard a very loud "NO!" scream in my head and had a spiritual awakening. I remember thinking that there had to be a better way, so I started to explore different types of energy work, astrology, numerology, etc. I wanted to get my hands on anything that had answers that would help me know more about myself and help me heal my body. For the first time, I began to truly know myself and in just a few months, working with different types of healers, the food allergies magically started to subside.
HEARING ABOUT CARDOLOGY FOR THE FIRST TIME
Fast forward several years later, I was on a trip to Boulder, Colorado with some friends (including Candy Irven, my best friend and business partner). We decided to get a psychic reading at a bookstore where Candy had been to before. The person from whom she’d had a reading wasn’t there that day. Paula Kreuger was there instead. As Paula began, she pulled out a giant blue book ("Cards of Your Destiny" by Robert Lee Camp) and said that each person has a playing card for their birthday and that mine is the Six of Clubs.
Playing cards??? Well, that was all I needed to hear. As a kid, I loved playing card games. I loved the way the cards smelled. I loved how they felt in my hands. I loved playing euchre for hours with my family.
Paula went on to explain about the card system and gave me a lovely reading about my Six of Clubs card. I was hooked. Before we left Boulder, I had already ordered several books on the card system.
THE UNIVERSE ALREADY AT WORK
I went home and immediately started studying the cards. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking that I should reach out to Paula to see if she would train me. Those thoughts were quickly followed with… "I wonder what happened to the business card she gave me." Off and on for several months, for one reason or another, I would always dismiss the thought of following up with Paula.
One day, as I was thinking (yet again) that I should reach out to Paula, I was digging around in my wallet and a seemingly random business card leapt out and fell to the floor. It was Paula's. I looked up and said, "Got It!" and sat right down to email her. Little did I know that the universe was already at work bringing Paula and I together as she was getting ready to start a small study group on the cards.
Paula and I studied together for a while. She had such amazing insight and it felt so destined that we had met. I knew that somehow we needed to go into business together to help bring her knowledge out into the world. So Candy, Paula and I started www.ItisKismet.com, which Paula now owns and operates.
CARDOLOGY AND TAPPING INTO MY INNER WISDOM
According to Robert Lee Camp, the Six of Clubs is the "Wayshower" card. People with the card can be very intuitive, although many don’t step into the role as an actual wayshower. I feel lucky to be one of the ones who have. My favorite way to "show people the way" is to help them understand that they are their own best teacher and that they they already have the answers they are seeking deep down inside. My personal experience of tapping into my own inner wisdom and healing my health issues proved that.
Candy and I both were able to truly know ourselves and tap into our inner wisdom when we learned about our cards. Each of us actually felt a sense of relief when we could see not only our inherent skills and positive traits but also understand our deepest difficulties and see our negative characteristics reflected back to us. The ancient wisdom contained in our cards allowed us to truly become our own gurus.
This is why Candy and I started www.ItsYouGuru.com. We want to help people to step into their power and know that their own inner wisdom lies within themselves. We feel that one of the first steps in accessing that inner wisdom is to truly understand themselves. We believe that Cardology, the ancient mystical science of playing cards, is the key to doing this.
As a Six of Diamonds, Candy has become aware of how one of her biggest lessons is to learn to say, "No". As a Six of Clubs, I have discovered how important it is for me to have balance in my life.
Today, Candy and I use Cardology to help others understand who they are, why they are here, what they need to work on and what gifts they bring to the world. We feel this understanding can create a sense of inner peace making it much easier for people to access their inner wisdom and unleash their own inner guru, too.
