On our Blogathon that I am participating in, we are supposed to blog about the 5 movies that has influenced us in our writing, BUT... since I am not a movie watcher (except for the Twilight series) I decided to write about the 5 Oracle decks that has influenced me in my writing instead. You know me, everything goes back to my Oracle decks when I'm stuck.
These 5 decks are the ones that I use the most. The deck in the upper left hand corner is the Soul Cards deck 1 and they are the cards that I use for my professional readings. Next to it is the Soul Cards deck 2 that I sometimes use for myself. Next to that deck is the Path of the Soul deck which like Soul Cards deck 1 & 2, all of the information comes intuitively, there are no words on the cards, which I love. On the bottom left is my Goddess Guidance Oracle deck which I use for my personal readings, along with my Messages from Your Animal Spirit Guides deck which I also use when I need to connect with my animal guides.
How these decks have influenced my writing is simple. I was doing a reading for myself one day, I wasn't quite sure where I was going in life and I hear as plain as day "It's time to write the story of your life. Many need to hear what you have to say." This message came from my great-great-great grandfather Chief White Cloud of the Ojibwa tribe who is in very close contact with me. He guides me often and his advice has always been spot on. He comes with great wisdom, so I try really hard to listen to him.
In the writing of my book The Path Less Chosen I often go back to my cards for advice or for direction. My cards play a huge role in my life as I use them often. Being that I am writing about my abusive childhood, the rough road of being a teenaged mom and then having disabled children, there are a lot of emotions in my book, but so far it is going very well. I'm moving at a nice pace and hope to hit the publishers within the next few months. I am very passionate about my book and hope that others get good information out of it. No matter how stressful my life seems, I can always stay focused and positive and always look for the silver lining. The glass is always half full, never half empty. So even though I am a first time writer, I feel that I am off to a good start.
Until next time...
