FAQ: Health Questions (Part 1)

Recently, someone said to me that they wanted to be able to answer health questions.  Whether or not you feel it is appropriate to look at health questions for other people will probably depend on who you are reading for, and whether you have training in any other healing modalities. 

That being said, let's look at what aspects of health and the body each Lenormand card can represent.  In this list, a few cards have some overlap.  For example, different writers attribute the lungs to either the Tree (the world’s lungs) or to the Clouds (wind/breath).  If a meaning makes sense to you for one card rather than another, I'd stick with it.

  1. I don't know if I would ever ask my cards anything about health, but then again never say never. :)

    1. I sometimes ask about myself, like "why is this an issue at the moment?" or "What can I do to help with this?". Also, I use these associations in designing healing spells :)

    2. I knew you would have some other angles to approach the health issue :D

    1. I can imagine you coming up with some interesting combinations for more naturopathic approaches, MM :)

  3. Health - mental, spiritual and physical is a very deep subject, and can be tapped into on several levels, depending who you are asking for. I tend to use dowsing myself to find the medium I wish to work in to answer the question. This is particularly good for calculating the length of time a certain situation is going to last, and what action/s might be taken...... I would think very carefully before sharing any findings with people out of my close acquaintance.

    1. Interesting, I've never heard of dowsing for calculating the length of time something will last, though I have used it to pinpoint trouble areas and also to work on adjusting their energy flow. Thanks for the comment, Thanna :)
