Wondering how you can make the most of your affirmation cards? Follow these instructions to learn how to use affirmation cards.

Affirmation cards are powerful tools for receiving spiritual guidance from the Universe.

By turning to affirmation cards for guidance, you redirect your attention away from the physical plane and into the spiritual realm.

The moment you surrender to spiritual solutions, you allow yourself to receive inspired and creative guidance from the Universe.

Here’s how you can use affirmation cards in 5 steps.

Step 1: Pray To The Universe

The first step in using affirmation cards is to pray to a higher power of your own understanding.

This higher power goes by many names including the Universe, God, and spirit. You can choose any name that resonates with you.

Praying to the Universe is essential because it prepares you for receiving the guidance that is to come.

When you pray to the Universe, you are affirming your faith in a higher power. This higher power is the force of love that will guide you using the affirmation cards.

Begin your affirmation card practice by saying this prayer, “Universe, thank you for leading me toward guidance of the highest truth. I step back and let you lead the way.

Step 2: Shuffle The Affirmation Cards

The second step is to shuffle your affirmation cards around. 

Shuffling the card deck allows you to refresh the card deck with new energy so you can receive the affirmation that you need in that particular moment.

You can do this step while you are praying to the Universe.

Step 3: Pick Out An Affirmation Card

Once you have prayed and shuffled the deck, pick a random affirmation card out of the deck.

Don’t overthink this part and simply let your intuition guide you toward a card.

Trust that your inner guide is working to lead you toward the exact affirmation you need to receive at this moment.

Step 4: Read The Affirmation

Once you have picked out an affirmation card from the deck, take a moment to read the affirmation in its entirety.

Take your time to reflect on the message and re-read the affirmation a few times.

To make the most out of the affirmations, you should say them out loud.

Hearing the affirmation in your own voice is much more effective than just reading and thinking about it.

This will help you reinforce the affirmation into your mind so you can embody the good vibrations of the message in the final step.

Step 5: Feel The Good Vibrations

The final and most important step in using affirmation cards is to feel the good energy of the affirmation.

The key to using affirmations is to FEEL the positive vibrations behind the words.

Affirmations work the best when you actually believe in what you are saying. Don’t just recite them just for the sake of doing it.

By assuming the high vibrational energy of the affirmation in the present moment, you recalibrate your energy to the top of the Emotional Guidance Scale.

In this high vibrational state, you are in full alignment with the Universe so you can manifest everything you want and more.
