The First Time

Today’s prompt is brought to you by one of the Discord servers that I am a member of.  Just as a side note… the reason I do not link these Discord servers is because each server has their own rules about if you’re allowed to share them publicly and how, and it’s a pain in the ass to look it up for each one so I just don’t share them.

On to the question… “What was your first time divining like? How does it compare to how divining is for you now?

Rana George Lenormand

Seamless… accidental.

My mother had been using Lenormand cards with my sister and I when we were children as bedtime story prompts for a long time before my first use with them as a divinatory device.

My first dip over the line was during one of those story times. It was my turn to contribute to the story and I pulled my card and something shifted. It didn’t feel right. Not as in I couldn’t have used it to contribute to the ongoing story, but that it didn’t feel like that’s what the card was meant for in that moment.

When I tried to set it aside, my mother encouraged me to explain why I wasn’t using it and why it didn’t “feel right”.

And there it was.

It’s pretty much the same now except I’m far more comfortable and far less confused.  That inner “voice” is still where direction comes from as far as what the cards are for, what they’re about, and what their message is.  They also sometimes still take me by surprise.
