MEET THE ORACLE: A ONE-CARD JOURNEY ORACLE READING WITH KRISTEN SCHOLFIELD-SWEET Ph.D CREATOR OF THE JOURNEY ORACLE

Take a guided journey into your unconscious wisdom:

“An Oracle’s answers change the way you see things. Your anxieties, fears and desires emerge to be recognized and resolved, and hidden transfor
mative energies are released.”

The Dream Journey reading is based on C.G. Jung’s dream analysis using cards to show how a situation (the topic of your reading) is right now and who its major players are, just like a dream begins with a setting and characters. The cards next show the experience you are having within your situation, like a dream develops a complex plot with uncertain outcomes. You are then shown the change—that moment in your situation when, like in a dream, something decisive happens or something changes completely. The reading concludes by showing the resolution sought by the wisdom of your unconscious mind.

Kristen Scholfield-Sweet's Journey Oracle was 23 years in the making. Kristen's readings are profound & life-changing.
