Card of the Day-6 June 2017

Princess of Cups with 5 and 6 of Cups

The truth is that we are always going to have moments that test our patience, our temperaments, our emotions. This a part of life but just as a lotus is shown, we must rise above the mud and the muck. It is through these very moments we are able to choose to be wiser, kinder, and better–thereby becoming the lotus arising from the mud. Its a deeper sense of awareness that external catalysts don’t have to ripple across our peace IMG_20170606_065604_372within. This is what the fish is saying for today. Fish can be adaptable, dig deep at the subconscious, It’s about wisdom. This seems the theme for today. Wisdom of knowing that while there are always going to be trying times, conflicts with others, or actions which plague and pluck at our emotions, we are capable of rising above with a sense of awareness, understanding, wisdom, and grace (the swan energy). We are coming into our own emotional power, refusing others to steal away our peace and happiness. From stealing away any bit of our power.

In truth, we wouldn’t be fully grateful for the good moments if we didn’t experience the sour ones as well. Sometimes the bad moments seem daunting and overwhelming–as if we will never be capable of overcoming them–but this is what fear does. It puffs up the situation to appear much more terrifying than what it truly is. Don’t give in to fear. Face it with understanding within your heart and even a sense of gratitude for the learning experience.

You may be tested with these very sorts of moments today–whether it be from an event that takes place or from people. Don’t sweat it. Just remember to breathe and if needed, call upon either fish or swan energy for today. Turtle is about persistence so don’t allow yourself to be stopped–keep pushing forward. You are capable of achieving all that you hope. Allow yourself to remain centered and calm with your emotions balanced, in check, and controlled. Don’t give away your power.

Card of the Day-30 May 2017

We’re being guided to finally release all that we’ve been clinging to these past several years. Most of us have the tendency of holding onto the heartache, pain, and betrayal that naturally occurs whenever someone acts against us. Once we’re slighted, we shut down and cut them off. Instead of effectively communicating in an attempt to resolve these issues, we ignore them or may even blow them out of proportion. Are there some 20170530_011508instances in which our anger is appropriate. Yes, but you must release that pain. Forgive. Not for them but for you, Honey. In the words of Tony Robbins, “Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.”

Does this mean that you forget and must return to your prior friendship? Hell no! It means loving yourself enough to say “This isn’t my shit and isn’t going to continue plaguing me! I deserve peace, dammit!” The person may not be sorry but that’s okay. Forgiveness doesn’t equal a return. It equals peace. You deserve that higher level of serenity.

Take some time today to breathe and meditate on all (or one at a time of) the transgressions against you. Allow yourself to feel all the pain, betrayal, anger, annoyance, etc. then allow yourself to forgive. If you feel the need to invoke help, do so. Call upon your personal view of Deity, any angels (Raphael would be appropriate), ancestors, etc. Ask for their help and it shall be.

You may even want to forgive yourself for things you hold against yourself. For this I always go one by one and picture the very moment it happened. I see myself as a detached bystander who is merely watching. As the scene plays out before me, I send love to my past self with the intention of forgiveness. I pour love into myself and when I come out of the meditation, I always feel astoundingly better!

Forgiveness isn’t easy in the slightest but it’s necessary if we are to continue growing and moving forward. Don’t allow yourself to become trapped within the past when it’s as simple as a short, “I forgive you.”.

My affirmation: I forgive other’s transgressions against me and release that energy.
Likewise, I ask forgiveness from wrongs I’ve done to others–intentionally or not.

Card of the Day-14 Dec 2016

Card of the Day

Temperance

As the holidays are fast approaching, and many of us are frantically purchasing our last few gifts, we are reminded to find a sense of moderation in our lives. A sense of balance. If you find yourself becoming stressed and frazzled, is it worth it? Maybe look into making a gift. The spirit of the season isn’t about giving the newest or best gadget on the market but instead giving from the heart. ❤🎁🎄
From the Rider-Waite deck.
