Giving and Receiving Blockage Spread

August 30, 2016


I made up this spread last night. It is designed to show you where you have blockages in your giving and receiving energies. A balanced flow in this area is important when trying to manifest or attract things that you want.

This spread gives you insight into where your energies are blocked and what you can do about it.


Giving and Receiving Blockage Spread


Giving...............Receiving
5--1/3--9.......6--2/4--10
----7----...........----8----



1. Your current comfort level with giving.
2. Your current comfort level with receiving.
3. (Crosses Card 1) What blocks/inhibits you from giving freely.
4. (Crosses card 2) What blocks/inhibits you from receiving freely.
5. How your past has played into this giving blockage.
6. How your past has played into this receiving blockage.
7. How to overcome this blockage (re: Card 3) to enable you to give more freely.
8. How to overcome this blockage (re: Card 4) to enable you to receive more freely.
9. Where the advice of Card 7 will take you if you follow through with it. (Your Giving Future)
10. Where the advice of Card 8 will take you if you follow through with it. (Your Receiving Future)

I laid the cards out in the order as described above. Then I read the two piles separately. I read the Giving pile first, then moved on to the Receiving pile. It found it to be a very honest account, and it gave me solid advice that I can act on, so that my energies in these areas can flow better.

Keep in mind the wording of the positions of cards 9/10. This is the outcome you will receive IF you follow through with the advice. Most likely, if you continue on the way you have been, making no changes, you will remain where you are now, carrying the blockages (cards 1/3 and 2/4).

Tips: If you have a positive card show up in the 3/4 position (the block), and all the other cards are super sunny, then you might not have a block in this area. However, if you feel that you do have a block, or if the surrounding cards indicate that you do, then you would read this positive card for its negative attributes. (Yes, you can find an up side and a down side to every card.)

If your outcome card is negative, then you may find yourself still blocked in the future, which would indicate a need to be more vigilant about overcoming the issue.

I hope this spread proves helpful for others besides myself!
