How many times have you thrust difficult cards back into the deck and reshuffled, only to have them return? It’s happened to us all. By keeping the cards you first drew and relaying them in a different order you are enabled to work with the dilemma, face it, and find the help that you need to cope with it. Draw a supporting card or two if you like.
Paradox is often at the heart of a client’s issue, where two impossible things sit in the same place, making decision very difficult indeed. Peeling back the layers so as to achieve a perspective on a complex issue is a great art, revealing possible routes forward.
