  • The laying of the cards

    Shuffle the cards in your own way, by being in the hand shaking or by washing them. Make sure the cards with the pictures lying down.
    Let the animals in silence speak to you once you've read have turned them with their face up and the information about their meaning.
    As is true with most oracles, stand as open as possible by clearing your mind and strong feelings or desires to set aside. A critical attitude, prejudice, or other negative thoughts will work like a boomerang and block your communication with the animals / cards. Like the animals also deserve the cards a loving and respectful attitude.
