Divining with the Angels

December may become "Divination Dreaming" month for me, as I had dreams of working with a new divinatory tool at the end of last year.

December may become “Divination Dreaming Month” for me, as I had dreams of working with yet another divination tool at the end of last year.

There must be something with me and the month of December, when it comes to dreams about divination.

You may recall that, in December of 2014, I had a dream that led me to begin my study of Lenormand, after having been a student and reader of Tarot for, at that time, 16 years.

Well, in December of 2015, right before the first-year anniversary of my relationship with Lenormand, I started have a lot of divination dreams.

Surprisingly, none of them were about the Lenormand, which would make sense as I was approaching this first-year milestone (and was very excited about it). And, again, surprisingly, none of them were about Tarot.

What were they about? Reading angel oracle cards.

Now, this was a surprise. Because of my like for angels (Would it surprise you if I told you I had a very interesting dream about them once?), I had attempted to dabble with reading angel oracle cards in the past, having a few decks in my collection. But I just couldn’t get into them.

I use this analogy to make the point: Back in the day, when I was in school, I loved algebra. I mean, loved it. As Carla Hall from “The Chew” would say, it was my “jam.”

Then, I had to take geometry. And I began to not like math so much. Until, I got past both geometry and trigonometry, and moved on the college algebra. Then the love returned.

Well, it was the same with Tarot and oracle cards; Tarot was like algebra, and oracle cards were like geometry. I’ve heard it said that those who like algebra dislike geometry, and vice versa. Too true, in my case.

So, imagine my surprise, when I had this dream early in the month of December:

I’m doing an Angel card reading. The deck that I’m using has lush, vibrant images with deep colors. The cards that appear in the reading make me think of cards from the Tarot.

And that was it, short and sweet. I woke up feeling like I had seen the cards somewhere before, that the backs of the cards were familiar, but I couldn’t place it. The Tarot reference made sense, as I had all of the Tarot decks Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine have created at the time of the dream.

After writing the dream in my journal, I went online to see if I could find any images close to what I could recall from the dream reading. And I did. The card backs that were in the dream were identical to the card backs of Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Michael Oracle Cards.

Archangel Michael is said to be the angel who gives us clarity about our life purpose and provide us with the next action step in a given situation.

It also turns out the image on the card backs is also on one of the cards. The name of the card? Make a Commitment. Seriously.

Right after this, I check my e-mail to find a message from Hay House, the publisher of Virtue’s decks. It’s about the upcoming Certified Angel Card Reader™ course being offered. I open the e-mail. Reading it, I discover the course is on sale.

My head is buzzing again, as I type this, just like it did then (which is an intuitive sensation I have experienced for many years, letting me know I’m on to something).

But, even with that, I decided to think about it, and “sleep on it.”

Well, all I can say is that Archangel Michael really wanted to press the issue, because the next morning, during the hypnagogic stage between dreaming and waking, I had a vision that led to my doing a Tarot reading that led me to signing up for the course.

Archangel Michael must’ve been pleased, because I kept having more dreams about reading the cards after starting the course.

I’m sharing the story, because if you’ve been eagle-eyed, you would have noticed that every Tarot reading I posted throughout December was with either the Archangel Power Tarot Cards or the Fairy Tarot Cards, my two favorite Virtue-Valentine decks.

And, as I dropped the news in my last post, I recently graduated from the course and became a Certified Angel Card Reader™!

And just like I’ve done with Lenormand, in the future, you’ll most likely be seeing angel card postings in this space.

Aside from that, I’m letting the Angels lead the way on this one…

    My friend just went to California and took Doreen Virtue’ s angel course getting certified. I am a skeptic about a lot of this…quite surprised I am even into tarot…congrats James !!!

    • James Himm says:

      Hi, Terry,
      I think having a healthy skepticism with things is good, as long as one is also willing to keep an open mind. In my particular case, there are moments when I wonder if the intuitive information that I get is just my imagination and stuff I’m making up. And then I have to remember all the incredible synchronicities I’ve experienced, both personally and professionally. In those moments, I tell myself, “James, you can’t make this stuff up.”

      I think your skepticism can actually serve you well in your work with Tarot, especially when you get a client who is also skeptical. And kudos to you for doing all you do with Tarot despite being skeptical! 😉

      Thank you for the congrats! While I’m excited about becoming certified, I’m also excited to see where the angels want me to go with this…

    My Nephew is constantly telling me that I’m an Empath! When he was young, I used to tease him that I was a white witch, as I live alone, by choice, with my animals. I believe in natural cures, and of course potions, that was my reasoning for the title witch! But he’s all grown up now, & is convinced I’m an Empath? I’ve read about being an Empath, I have all the bad stuff, can’t bear crowds, feel others pain, can even sense change in the air, if you know what I mean? Can sense danger, or illness that sort of thing! But I put my senses down to intuition? Can you give me any advice or tell where to look for more information on this subject, as until he said the word Empath in the summer, I’d never heard the term!

    One other thing I just remembered, last Christmas someone told me about numerology, again, never heard of it, and didn’t and still don’t have any digital clocks etc! Anyway, straight away after hearing of it, the strangest things happened: I opened my mobile phone- 00.00.time then on TV, same day a phone number came up 0800 0 8000 something like that with lots of 000’s. This went on; various other items all zeros, then 222’s then 333′ and back to 000?

    For the last 15 years, I have had bad health, however I’m now being treated by the Hospital Pain Clinic, so managing the pain and am finally in a place where I can start living again, obviously not at my old job, but wonder at what?

      Thank you for checking out the blog post and sharing your experiences with me.

      With regard to being an Empath, I would check YouTube and search for videos on the subject. I recently found some in my feed of recommended videos, which I’m taking as a sign for me to pass that along to you, because I’m not well-versed on that specifically.

      What I will tell you is that you might also want to look into such things as grounding, shielding, and clearing techniques, as you would benefit from them especially if you’re an Empath; I would say they’re required, actually.

      The angels love sending messages through numerical patterns, like the ones you’ve described. If you do a Google search on angel numbers, you’ll find a lot of information on the individual numbers, as well as patterns and sequences. When I got into studying metaphysical sciences, the first was numerology, and because of that, I know from first-hand experience that the angels love getting my attention this way.

      I’m delighted to hear that you’re on the road to recovery, and I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep me posted on your research and what you discover.

    I was bowled over to get a real and personal reply! Which I thank you for, and do appreciate your advice!

    I think having it come at me from all angles and then you connecting your noticing about Empaths, and joining the dots to it being a message to me, is having a profound sense of ‘this is something I should look into.’ It’s easy to live in ignorance, but it’s selfish to ignore significant signs! So like you. I’ll take it as a nod to delve deeper!

    Thanks for taking the time to answer. and do you have a site or whatever! I’m very ignorant of technology! I trained on computers when they were first invented, there at the start, working for a big bank, but I was in Underwriting etc, not a city banker! But when I retired, I switched off technology, I only use a kindle for reading, obviously have a mobile, but don’t use it! So could you please send me a link to your site, don’t worry, I won’t be pestering, but more like, joining the outside world!

    First steps!! Hope you had lovely thanksgiving! We don’t have that here! Getting ready for Xmas! Live near London in U.K., with lousy weather! XX

    • James Himm says:

      I appreciate what you’ve said about receiving a personal reply; it’s important to me to take time to respond to those who have gifted me with their time by, not only reading my posts or watching the videos in those posts, but also sharing their thoughts.

      I’m pleased that you’re connecting the dots and seeing the signs, and very excited for you as you embark on this new adventure of self-discovery!

      I do have a site; you can visit me at jameshimm.com to get more of a sense of who I am and more about my work, as well as staying connected.

      I did have a nice Thanksgiving, and I look forward to seeing what the Christmas season brings my way.

      Please keep in touch and let me know what you discover on your Empath journey!
