Take a deep breath and feel yourself in your body, relaxed.
Hover your finger or mouse above the card deck below, without touching or clicking.
Take three deep breaths and then close your eyes. Silently think about where in your life you could use a little more support or inspiration.
When it feels right, click your mouse or touch your screen to choose a card. A mindfulness message will be revealed.
“What you seek is seeking you.” — Rumi
We created these cards as a way to intentionally cultivate the qualities that support us in showing up for ourselves and others, in ways that feel nourishing and meaningful.
We encourage you to engage with the Calm Cards in whatever way feels best. Here are a few ways that we love to use them:
Pick a card in the morning to set an intention for the day
Pick a card on a Sunday to set an intention for the week
Pick a card on the first day of the month to set an intention for the month
Pick a card when you’re feeling stuck, to see what happens when you infuse more of that quality into your day
Pick a card when you’re struggling with another person to explore what qualities might bring more ease into your relationship
Pick a card and use it as journaling prompt
Pick a card and use it in your meditation practice
Pick a card to use with a partner or group — like a book club, but an intention club; connect daily or weekly or monthly and share your experiences
Send a card to a friend who may need some inspiration
We’ve also put all of the cards in a lovely booklet for you to use as a mindfulness tool, a journal full of inspiration for your practice.
