What is an Angel Card Reading (Oracle)?

The world of Tarot is a well elected method to derive answers to our personal and professional problems. I mean who doesn’t know of Tarot, even non-believers do. Tarot is believed to be traced back to the 16th century in its origin or interpretation thereof.

Angel Cards we can say are a derivation of the Tarot dating back mostly to the 19th C. I have worked alongside Angels or rather accepted their guidance for over half a decade now, although my true readings began in 2017.

What are Angel Cards?

As the name suggests, Angel Cards are sourced back to the belief that ‘Angels’ @ messengers of God are around us, to unconditionally support our soul journey towards our highest good. As invisible as air itself, when ‘tuned in’, we can sense their presence through mere intuition, feelings, sparkles in the air, feathers or coins around us or through even the repeating numeric patterns that often baffle us. I must tell you that Angel Cards are simply amazing, because the (seemingly invisible) Guardian and ArchAngels that surround us are fabulous at what they do – giving us insightful guidance with a spark of inner belief, motivation and valuable affirmations.

All of us have 2 guardian angels assigned at birth and a set of divine team that consists of other angels and ArchAngels. Our Angels love us unconditionally. They want the very best for us even if that means challenging us beyond our comfort zone. They have zero personal agenda and despite the divine guidance, cannot influence or override our FREE WILL.

I tell my clients to imagine Angels hovering above us like helicopters. Being omniscient, omnipresent, clairvoyant and coming from a place of true, unconditional love for us, angels are able to observe our past, present and the next best steps forwards for our soul growth.

Having understood this, I can tell you that Angel Cards (also sometimes known as Oracle Cards) are able to guide us towards our highest good, best solutions and practices in any area of our life. Similar to Tarot, it utilizes a span of cards dealt and energetically activated by the practitioner. The client is able to ask a question relevant to ANY area of his/ her life or alternatively, keep an open ground for whatever guidance received.

Through the cards picked up, Angels then guide the client towards possible truths, awareness, options and solutions by highlighting obstacles to growth, best steps forward and the necessary areas of inner growth for future success. Angels are simply amazing at picking out our inner, unhealthy emotional patterns and subconscious beliefs. They want to gently guide, inspire and motivate us to align our intentions to our highest truth. Hence, often times the answers to even concrete, materialistic questions like career, job and money could lie in hidden spiritual growth

I like to think of angels as invisible Life-Coaches and excellent Spiritual Coaches.

E.g. A question on career asked by my client was responded by the angels by drawing attention to her own self-doubts. Another client who asked about career and finance was given the guidance to soften her heart with love and relax her rigid mental boundaries / rules. The client responded with affirmation, telling me that it made perfect sense!


There are different Angel Card decks. However, personally, I have used the ArchAngels Oracle Cards the most. It is a 45 card deck with 15 ArchAngels, each assigned 3 cards based on their individual expertise. This means that each ArchAngel is an expert at certain dimensions of life just like we humans are – some in health, some in finance, some in emotional health, etc.

I have done most of my readings virtually either Video over Skype or WhatsApp or Audio call – based on the client’s preference.


Both Tarot and AC help give us answers, guide us to solutions however, tarot can be more definitive and more focused in the Earthy dimension. E.g. Tarot can tell you in how many months you are likely to get married, which job out of the 3 you are likely to get, etc. Tarot can help get us real world answers in the concrete.

Angel Cards also give us answers which are broadened to our overall GROWTH as vs. just the particular question we ask. Angel Cards are EXCELLENT at picking up our blind spots, the areas of growth we shy away from or confirming our doubts and reassuring us in the face of our insecurities.

Until date I have found 99% of my clients extremely happy with their reading (extremely rare a case when the client leaves with the lack of clarity. Very often this is the case when there are internal blocks to growth). They understand the interpretations pertaining to their context and get BIG, emotional and spiritual take-aways from it. I love it because while Tarot can just give us these answers in the 3D, an Oracle deck can provide us with answers from higher dimensions that will TRANSFORM our life in a much larger way should we follow that guidance.


We can do a 3 card or a 10 card reading. The practitioner spiritually connects to the divine force of the client and allows for his / her own divine team to mutually guide the reading. A sacred space is created in the reading area including but not limited to lighting a candle, incense, being clean in one’s body (shower, etc.), placing flowers, etc.

In a 3 card reading, the practitioner pulls out 3 cards – looking over the present, past and future or the current mindset, blockages and solutions. It helps to answer one question in depth.

A 10 card on the other hand gives very thorough details about one question. It can highlight influences from other people, from the past, best practices, how to overcome our difficulty, etc. A 10 card reading typically take 45 minutes.

I offer 30 minute and a 60 minute reading based on client choice, both often done virtually for people around the world! BOOK A SESSION NOW


Twins in the Whispers of History

Spiritual Leaders in the human world have been raving about the ‘Golden Age’ which started in 2012. All that talk about the earth to be destroyed was actually about the new phase we were to jump on, also called as the ‘Ascension’.

There are some very trans-formative, powerful shifts happening on earth given this much needed spiritual uproar. Twin Flames and all the mysterious excitement around it is one of them. There are truly not many Twin Flames ascending as human selves in close proximity. Those that are, are lucky, are very ‘old souls’¬† and carry the wisdom that will play a key part in keeping earth ‘alive’ in the coming generations.


While it is easy to confuse a Soul Mate or Karmic Bond with a Twin Flame relationship, a Twin Flame alone can truly mark that difference. In one word it is a SACRED relationship, two souls embodied into ONE. Then that ONE SOUL is given two bodies, one given by the Universe where Souls are bonded for the deepest trans formative exercises of highest self-actualization, almost as close to Godliness as it can get.

Twin Flames (TF) have very strong whirlpool like attraction and affection towards one another. They may be perfect strangers when they meet but the connection is the peak of a deja vu unexplained. That attraction is so hard to resist that like same poles of a magnet, they crave to be together and yet repel each other very quickly.

Twin Flames often look alike when put together and have exactly same or very identical habits, virtues, personality, upbringing, experiences in life, family structures, religious backgrounds and careers. They live what is called as PARALLEL LIVES. This means that what one Twin does, immediately and directly impacts another twin even without any interaction or physical proximity. They may be in two different continents or planets, the energetic power is so intense and inter-coiled that their experiences become magnetic. The ways in which they or their lives are stark antonyms, highlights areas of growth.

In this body, my TF journey started a handful of years ago, in this soul, it started a handful of lifetimes ago. However, this post I do not desire to define more of what a TF is but rather just to ‘express’ who I am, why I am so honored to be where I am in life. The thread of life, as a gift that my TF gave me in the deepest darkest hours of chaos, without ever even physically being present, in communion or his consciousness, is the most invaluable gift my soul has and will ever cherish. Read on…

…I personally believe that Krishna-Radha are the perfect TWIN FLAME examples. Krishna is the highest revered Hindu God and Radha was his eternal love. Krishna’s wife was not known in history but Radha continues to be worshiped and their UNCONDITIONAL bond has set the stone for inspiration for generations. Despite his marriage, his true communion was with Radha, an attraction they both could not resist and was also cherished by humanity at a time when virtues of only one physical bond was an all or nothing phenomenon.

It is the highest soul level relationship one can be in and I feel honored to experience all of it’s major highs and deep lows. This roller coaster relationship is nothing and never short on spiritual Drama as the Universe weaves out it’s yarns seamlessly with no particular direction except one – constant and MANDATORY FORWARD motion IN INTENSE SELF ACTUALIZATION.


A TF relationship forces one to constantly face fears, Insecurities, emotional patterns and spiritual accountability without being physically too proximate to one’s TWIN or too far apart to be able to escape it.

How I have evolved with this Sacred Union is beyond description but people witness that charm and strength. And while I have not conversed with my Twin in exactly 2 years now, we have never been apart in Unison for a single moment. We hear each other’s thoughts, feel each other’s happiness and pain and dance together I’m higher dimensions of existence.


And as the soul seeks more evolution, today I evolved further up digging out deeper fears and learning to be more vulnerable than ever before, even walking rt front of my Twin’s Space without ever knowing if an interaction would be possible or unlikely.

When I met my twin for the first time, I had no clue but life began to stir up all the questions and chaos which I had suppressed within me for ages. Who am I, why am I living a subdued life, defining it with a victim’s eye and allowing it to be a passive experience. I had given in to the ‘have to live’ and ‘have to somehow get through’ with the intense pain. Grief was my word of the day for several years but the more I encountered my Twin, the more it mirrored to me the self-identity I was missing, an invisible scar that sketched out as a 100 broken mirrors poking their sharp edges into a marriage that was loveless, broken, abusive and a life I had become a slave to.

And so I moved, energetically, worked emotionally and grew into something I would have never believed I could. An strong, independent woman leading the light for others now.

Manifestation after all is super easy and that’s why so hard as it requires breaking all boundaries with Vulnerability and learning to stay in the Unpredictability of Life. ~Coach Rima Desai


While Twins go back several life times in history and I have seen so many of those clearly, they THRIVE only by mastering the HERE and NOW – Zero strings attached. No past, no future and in that we continue to be reborn limitless times and each nano second is a new birth of oneself and a MIRROR to one’s TWIN. ~ Rima Desai

And so goes for all Twins reincarnating on Earth with this time of Ascension and Transformation. Remember Krishna-Radha!
