My Experience with the Lenormand Cards~
I have been studying and working with Sylvie Steinbach’s book, “The Secrets of the Lenormand Oracle“, since fora little over 2 years. I had been looking for years, for a different system from the Tarot, that would not only compliment the Tarot, but give more detailed insights. I definitely have found that with The Lenormand Oracle!
I created this blog, as a way to practice getting insights on different combinations, and to become more familiar with the nuances of these cards. These cards have out-performed my hopes and expectations as to what is possible with divination with cards…they are phenomenal!
The readings that I have done, for friends and family, have brought up funny little details that have been born out. For example:
I did a reading for a girlfriend, who was being pushed out of her rental house because her dog had had puppies. She had managed to find good homes for all of them except one, who she ended up keeping. The landlord discovered this, and said “out!”-
To find a place, in the middle of winter, to rent, (when you have a few dogs!!) is very very difficult. She asked me to do a reading for her, asking if she would find a 3 bedroom house, with a back yard, reasonable rent, that would accept her dogs?
I don’t have the specific reading any longer, but I remember that I told her, that yes, she would find such a house that she would really like, and would stay there for a long time. The cards also said to me that she needed to check out her place of work, look at the bulletin boards, or talk to people she worked with, because she would find the place through a lucky break connected to work.
I felt as though, I had put my head on the chopping block with that one! lol My friend also reads for a second income, but couldn’t read for herself. Time went by, and then lo and behold! I got an email from her thanking me profusely! She had found the perfect house to rent, with a very kind landlord. It was in a more desirable area, near all the ammenities (she doesn’t drive) AND she found out about it through a co-worker at that place of employment, before the house was even listed or emptied of the tenants!!
That was a major moment for me as to the power of these funny little cards. You don’t need 52 cards or 78 cards to get an incredibly detailed account. You just need The Lenormand cards, and Sylvie Steinbach’s book! I highly recommend starting with her system to “learn the language” and practice, before expanding to explore other systems.
Sylvie’s teaching thread on Aecletic Tarot Forum has been indispensable for taking this beginner to the next level. I can’t recommend this teacher, and her specific methods for reading these cards, highly enough! I never thought I would say this, but they run rings around Tarot!! I have been in awe, at some of the insights that have come forth with these cards.
If you want to get specifics, and really get to the heart of matters, discover the Lenormand Cards, and Sylvie Steinbach’s book- you won’t look back 🙂
