I once created a spread that checked in with all my energy centers. I still like it, it has its uses- particularly for folks who are generally balanced and just need the light warning or affirmation of the cards.

As I’ve grown in my understanding of how energy and space works, I’ve come to understand that for a massive shift to take place, it has to work within a release/take in dual action. Basic physics, right? Equal and opposite reaction, y’all.

To invite energy, there’s likely something that needs letting go of. It is not natural for us to hold vacuums, more often that not- it’s not so much that our glasses are half-empty or half-full, it’s that they are full of different and sometimes opposing energies.

How might this work?

For instance, if you are in need of attracting something, a particular energy- think not so much about what it is you don’t have, but also consider what you are holding on to that is deflecting what you want, what is it is taking up space better served for what you seek?

It shifts focus, and quite frankly requires more work because suddenly you need to not only bring in, but do the hard work of clean up and release.

Here’s the basic questions for this spread. My favorite thing is it is absolutely easy to modify for different circumstances and this basic structure contains the basic building blocks of how to answer shift inquiries.

You have to breathe out to breathe in again.

1. What calls attention to my [specific chakra/energy center/focal point/circumstance] at this time?

          2. What do I need to breathe out to unblock the flow of positive energy?
          3. What do I need to breathe in to encourage the flow of positive energy?

                        4. What additional guidance is there to invite balance and stability of flow?
