Stop Fear

January 5th, 9 of Swords

 

Our mind can be our best friend, or our worst enemy. Your focus on your fears and feelings of uncertainty are misleading you into expecting the worst, it’s time to change your thoughts into something more positive and uplifting.
Change your mindset and change your life. Be positive and look for only your highest hopes and dreams. Remember like attracts like, positive attracts positive, negative attracts negative! What vibe are you putting out there?
Don’t be so hard on yourself, we’re all learning on this life journey! Be optimistic! Stop torturing yourself needlessly. Let go of your FEAR, believe!

Detachment 

December 13th,  Detachment

Are you the same person as you were yesterday?  What about 1 year, 3, 5 or 10 years ago? We grow, we change, we evolve.
When you grow and mature enough to release past hurts you give yourself the gift of progress, freedom and liberation.
When you detach you take away uncertainty, doubt and regret. You open a space for hope, belief, faith, contentment and love to rush in and take its place!

Faith

October 27th,  Faith

Today would be a good day to look into Spiritual Matters. By what code of ethics do you guide your life? 

Do you buck traditional beliefs and favor something a bit more your own or are the old ways good for you? 

An authority figure may be of importance to you today. Allow them to share with you their Wisdom. Be open to new ways of thought, it may be what you are looking for once you open yourself to it!

Courage!

August 24th: Courage 

You’ve got this!

If there is a change you want to initiate in your life, know that you DO have the Courage to make it happen!

When faced with the unknown, you have the strength and means to cope because everything you’ve been through in your life has been a learning experience. 

Your positive attitude and faith are necessary to get you from one moment to the next in life. With these two strengths you can overcome fear or disappointments.

Whatever changes that are happening in your life, remember to take it one day at a time. It is great to plan for the future, however this can also bring on a bit of Anxiety because we want to get to that point Now! So, relax and chill out a bit! 

We seem to be a society of living in the Past or living in the Future, we forget about the Present Moment and usually go along blindly. 

Take steps toward your desired outcome but really involve yourself in Today, feel it with passion. Know that everything will come together. 

All good things in all good time! 

Be courageous today, face your fears, take on that leadership role, break out of your comfort zone, be assertive.

Give it to God

August 14th:  Give it to God

Rise above your fears and Trust!

This is difficult to do at times, mainly because we are so Ego driven instead of Spirit driven.

Instead of listening to our intuition and our Spirit we listen to the negative voice in our head that chews us up and spits us out over and over again. 

Today take a different approach,  listen to your Intuition,  feel your Spirit and know that the Divine really does have your back! 

Although things may be taking longer than you want them to, know that all good things come in all good time.

The Hierophant

As I have seen, depending upon the author of the Tarot card deck that is being used this card has a few different names: The Hierophant, The Pope, The High Priest, or simply Faith.

img_20170212_122054

We see a man dressed in a robe and standing between two pillars indicating duality, in this case Spirit and Matter. The Hierophant is the bridge between the two. He is an older man indicating wisdom.

This card usually points to help from someone of trust, someone you look up to or hold in high regard. This doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be a man, just a person you are comfortable with and trust, they have knowledge about a subject that you do not yet possess. They are a ‘seer’.

This could be a mentor, teacher or a religious figure of course!

In addition this card also refers to large institutions that have a set way of doing things such as hospitals, educational establishments, government offices, churches, banks or other large organizations where rules are set and carried out without question. In order to gain entrance to one of these establishments you must embrace their doctrine, their set of beliefs so as to obtain their education and enjoy the tradition. All these institutions have a set way of working, of thinking and sometimes it can be very hard to implement change, even when the change would do some good.

When viewing the card as The Priest, men have become priests for all sorts of reasons. Some because it of ambition, family pressure or tradition although that is not seen so much these days there are a few that still feel a calling to God and choose this as their profession.

How do you discover and connect with God? In my opinion to discover the Spiritual within you must go into the deep crevices of your own mind and really clear out the cobwebs to make clear what you believe, know or think you know. This can be a bit treacherous as you must make some uncomfortable confrontations with your own beliefs. Perhaps it is time that you need to review and start recreating your own personal awareness of God?

When this card comes up it in a reading it can indicate that you are following traditional values. However, have you truly stopped to think about these? What do they mean to you? Are they in alignment with your ideas and feelings? Or are you just following along because this is the dogma you were taught and not allowed to ask questions so as to obtain a deeper knowledge?

Perhaps it’s time to find a deeper meaning to life by exploring your spiritual matters. Many are born into a religion and follow this without ever a second thought to the orthodoxy of it. Those that accept this continue on their rigid pathway and are usually dismissive of new ideas and information. Do you still accept these beliefs? Or are new ideas or even questions about the custom now coming to mind? If so, now would be a good time to connect to someone who is open to your questions.

The wise and patient counselor, teacher, elder will embrace you with open arms making you comfortable to be in their presence. They will listen to you and give advice but not the answers to all your questions. The Hierophant knows that the answers to your truths will need to be unlocked by you so the gain of deeper knowledge comes to you of your own volition. It’s okay to rock the boat a bit, that’s how eyes are opened, including your own!

About the Tarot

picsart_12-10-06-07-09

Several years ago I was watching a movie and the background music starts to get intense, the two main characters are waiting for the fortune-teller to give them the outcome to their question and the card is DEATH! The two main characters look at each other with fear in their eyes! Does that mean someone is going to die? Are they going to die? What does this mean?!?

What if the Magician card would have been pulled? Does that mean someone put a spell on characters in the movie? What if it were the Sun, does that mean they are going to burn to death or they really need to start using more sunscreen? What about the Star or the Moon?

I had always been interested in the Tarot but had never had a reading done for myself. Living in a secluded town in southern Colorado this wasn’t something openly available to me. When I would see the Tarot used in the movies, these were some of the questions that popped into my mind. It made me wonder: is Hollywood making a mountain out of a molehill for the sake of selling a movie? Why are they portraying the Tarot like this? In the movies why are these little cards with pictures on them always portrayed as ‘bad’? Are there any ‘good cards’? If so, what are they? What do those mean? Why do some people get so freaked out about this?

It makes me wonder what the rest of you think when you see the Tarot used in the movies or displayed elsewhere. I have been reading Tarot for 8 years now and wanted to share my love of it and knowledge with you.

Playing cards were developed in China around the 9th century. The early Tarot cards are thought to have originated in Egypt during the 11th century. Some of the oldest cards date back to Italy during the mid-15th century to play such games as Italian tarocchini and French Tarot. By 1791 the first Tarot deck was dedicated to divination.

Divination, what is this? The practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown, prophecy, perception by intuition, instinctive foresight, following your gut.

How often do you trust or even listen to your gut instinct, your intuition? As humans we are master rationalizers. We have a tendency to see things as black or white with little grey area in-between. This grey area is usually the creative solution, our gut instinct, our intuition. That “inner voice” which is telling us to do something but we can’t rationalize just why we should. Acknowledging this hunch, this gut instinct seems a little, well … far out.

We all have intuition, yet we are taught reason and rationalization from a young age. Our brain will edit, censure and resist some of the data if certain emotions are triggered.

Your own spiritual beliefs and life perspective come into play with divination and your intuition. Were you taught: THIS is just how it IS. Or were you taught to see ALL SIDES of a situation and be open minded?

Sometimes it’s not about knowing, it’s about faith & revelation. As we go thru life, it’s all a mystery. Truly we don’t know what is going to happen from one day to the next, and we believe, we have Faith that we will have a tomorrow. We can look back upon past memories and current experiences which dictate how we will make our choices, yet the future is the unknown. Sure we can plan for the future like someone that plans for retirement and deposits money into their 401k. It is our present choices that make our future. If you’re not saving up for retirement well guess you’ll be a working stiff?!

Tarot readings give a deep inside look into the things we keep hidden, the things we don’t want to acknowledge. A reading can illuminate your past, clarify your present and show you the future to come that is being defined by your present choices and decisions. Readings are not meant to give you a specific Yes or No answer but the opportunity to raise your consciousness and your own intuition to a higher level. For most it is simply the study of a deeper spiritual reality that extends beyond pure reason and the physical sciences.

Alan Alda said, “At times you have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”

How do you tap into your intuition? And, what about that Death card that I mentioned at the beginning of this post? What does it mean? And what about the Magician or the Sun? I’ll hit those up in my next blog post, until then!

Many Blessings!
