  • Forgetfulness of self and human experiences after death in cultures worldwide

The Underworld Spread

  • designed by Kim Huggens
  • dipping into your darkness for liberation of your soul from your inner demons 

Card 1. The Cave Mouth: What is the path to my darkness? 

Card 2. The Inner Sanctum: In which area of my life does this darkness manifest most readily?

Card 3. Hades Himself: Face to face with my inner demon, what form does it take?

Card 4. Drinking Memory: How can I begin to understand, accept, or heal this darkness?

Card 5. Ascent: How can I begin to redeem this dark aspect of my psyche and bring it into the light?

Card 6. Sunlight: The outcome of this work. 

Instructions

  1. Keep the thought/intention in your heart that you would like to know about your inner darkness & you are open to authentic answers
  2. Shuffle the cards until you feel it’s time to draw cards
  3. Then draw 6 cards from the deck and spread them out according to the spread layout
  4. Interpret the cards according to the layout order

Further guidelines and tips

  • Look for what elements/suits appear most in your reading, and the linkage among cards
  • The inner demon card could be a positive card. Look for the opposite qualities of that card.
  • If the outcome card is a dark card, remember every card has a moral lesson behind that are valuable to us.

Words of Wisdom by J.K. Rowling

We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.

Take-away messages

  • Knowing your inner darkness doesn’t mean that you are a demon, or you are bad, it’s just reminding you of your shadowy self, that there’s a possibility that your dark experiences could bring out your inner darkness, and by understanding it, you could heal it and also your pain, bring it into the light, and eventually liberate from it.
  • Approach your darkness with love and compassion, and your wounds would be healed.
