For the month of August, 2021

Every month co-creators of the Divine Dog Wisdom Cards and Cosmic Cat Cards and Guidebooks Barb Horn and Randy Crutcher draw a card from each deck of 60+ cards, after asking for guidance around a central theme for the month.

“Ari, are you taking your camping gear on this trip, or are you couch surfing it along the way?”

“Mom, it’s all arranged, don’t worry, everything’s totally covered!”

The mother, a Certified Life Coach, had been using the Divine Dog Wisdom cards frequently with clients to help them tap into their inner world and intuition, or to help bring up themes and issues that had already been surfaced in earlier sessions, things the client wanted to focus on and positively change in their lives.

August 2021 Card Draw

What she had not done yet was to try the cards out with family members. Her 20-year-old son, headed out on a road trip, had been overwrought about some relationship issues with his girlfriend and had confided a bit with his mom.

“Before you go, could you just humor me a moment and pull a card from this deck?”

“Oh mom, I really got to hit it, today will be my longest drive.”

“Honey, this will just take one second, and it might give you some good food for thought as you roll down the road on this beautiful weather day.”

The discussion the coach mom and her son had had earlier was about how he had slowly begun to realize that he had to take more responsibility for the quality of his relationship by cultivating greater empathy and compassion. He’d come to that after several difficult conversations with his girlfriend, not easy for this young man.

“Ok mom, gimme that deck. You didn’t know but I looked at the cards when I saw them laying around the other day. Some are pretty cute and funny.”

The son takes the deck from his mom, shuffles them like a card sharp, cuts and draws a card. A big wide grin suddenly appears on his face.

“Ok, I get it mom, I really get it. Now I can hit the road.”

The card the son had picked was Empathy.
