What Falls to the Floor… – Readings

What do you do when cards fall to the floor while you are shuffling the deck?  Do you tuck them back into your deck and go about your task?  Do you stop and consider which cards have slipped out of your hands before your very eyes?  I was taught that what “falls to the floor comes to your door.”  I think of it as an assertion of the message, maybe not the entire message but a definite and important part of the reading.

Perhaps the fallen cards can lend some depth on a daily three or add the dimension of mood or time to an event or happenstance.  Some readers even consider if the cards have fallen far or near, or face up or face down.  I have learned to set the cards aside and weave them in as the reading calls; they will often add a detail that was a surprise to both you and the Querent.
