Colour mapping the Nomadic Oracle is a great, if not essential strategy - achieving both higher illumination and subtle clarity.

Some moments in life are so subtle it's hard to recall them later. A camera would be useless here – how can you picture a thought?

A Nomadic Oracle reading is more than an arrangement of cards on a surface. It is a vibrant interplay of energies – incoming, outgoing and neutral, a blend between different frequencies denoted by their elements and represented in colour.

One of the best ways to get to grips with a reading after the initial interpretation is to make a colour-map. The names of the cards are written down in their corresponding positions, and shaded or underlined with the colour of their individual element. This process can be a simple scribble with the kids' colouring pencils or a fully fledged work of art, complete with arrows, textures and sketches to show flows, directions, feelings and interpretations.

The process engages the practitioner's creativity and becomes a kind of moving meditation, through which the subtleties of the reading are able to crystalise in the mind. The association of colour with each of the cards' native elements throws up surprising relationships, subtle transitions and general trends which might not have been perceived before. Preserved in your diary or journal, a colour-map is a lasting visual aid to even the most complex of situations.

Preserved in your diary or journal, a colour-map is a lasting visual aid to even the most complex of situations.

In a diary or journal, the flow of time across the pages can have all the qualities of a time-machine – the entries are communications from the Self, located in a different past moment. For those who regularly approach the Nomadic Oracle, drawing the resulting readings in a journal as a matter-of-course provides an opportunity to study the past in a different way.

The Oracle chooses the colours in any colour-map. These entries stand out from the mundane, effecting the frequency of a journal in quite subtle ways.

The Nomadic Oracle appeals to the mind. Often, reviewing these coloured marks can guide a sensitive reinterpretation of the past. This process reveals –

...the what? ...the why? ...the how?

– of one's own previous thinking, now forgotten. It helps to contextualise the pressures and decisions which powered the situation at the time and to what extent one's own actions helped create or resolve it. If repeated and nourished over the years this process would be like colour-mapping parts of one's entire life-path, with universal assistance. This gives the practitioner a lot of potential for understanding, and therefore healing, aspects of their own life.
