Cards as story prompts

These cards are designed to help you tell a story about yourself or someone you know. First of all you need to shuffle the pack, then once you have done that, there are a couple of options.

Take the top three cards from the shuffled pack and spread them out.

Think about the cards and focus on them.

Card 1: This represents a change in your life. Remember to look at the guide to reading cards first, an image of a heart may be about the need for courage, or it may be about love, or it could be that you need to eat more greens because a healthy diet leads to a healthy heart, the way to decide the meaning of a card is up to you. When you have thought about the various things that this card might mean, try and write down the beginning of your story.

Card 2: Offers direction on caring for yourself during this process of change. How will you care for yourself both mentally and physically? This could be as much about making contact with other people as changing your physical habits, by taking up more exercise.

Card 3: Serves as a guide for centering yourself in the midst of this change. What are your strengths? What can you build upon to ensure you can get through change?

The key to reading the cards is to be open to ideas about what they might mean. Colour, or small abstract shapes can mean things as well as the main images on the cards.
