Welcome to your weekly Tarot for the Soul reading!
If you have been guided to this reading, then you are in the right place, my friend. This reading is meant for you.
As always, I have drawn two cards from my Osho Zen Tarot deck, offering you guidance for your week ahead.
The first card represents the gifts that will be showered upon you this week by the Universe/Spirit/God (whatever you want to call your higher power). We always have gifts being delivered to us—spiritual mastery lies in slowing down enough to be able to recognize them and cultivate gratitude. Our soul longs to say “thank you,” and, so, by taking a moment to give thanks, we generate more positive energy so that more and more gifts may manifest in the future!
The second card represents your areas for growth this week. Remember: there is no life without challenge…no light without dark, no yin without yang. Life in human form is a mixed bag of circumstances and lessons. It is in our highest wisdom to recognize and embrace all aspects, even the ones that are painful. Our soul needs challenges in order to grow and learn. So, stand and face these growth opportunities with an open, courageous, loving heart.

WEEK OF MAY 29, 2017
I have drawn the Experiencing card.
(On a personal note, this is one of my favorite cards, and I love to see it come up in a reading!)
This card represents all the simple beauty in simply being alive to our present moment awareness. Being in the senses fully. Breathing in the majesty of nature.
On this card, we see a genderless being caught up in a moment of gentle, warm intimacy with a tree. It is clear that the tree and the human are One. It is clear that the tree is communicating with the human, and the human is communicating with the tree. However, the language is not with words—the language shared is beyond concepts and ideas.
Instead of language, the two are speaking the eternal language of the heart. They are radiating their life energy with and into each other.
This week, I encourage you to get out into nature and experience the gifts beautiful Gaia has to offer! Become alive again—and hug a tree! Feel the bark under your fingertips and breathe in the scent of the leaves deeply. Commune with our brothers and sisters in the plant world. Become alive again!
This week, you are particularly ripe for such an experience. It is in your nature to want to deeply experience nature, and when we can intimately connect with plants and other creatures on the Earthplane, we realize our intrinsic Oneness, and we lose the fear that comes from the mistaken belief in separation.
This week, set your intention to Experience. Get out of your head, away from your work, away from the dramas and comings and goings of your social life, and fully enter the moment. Allow yourself to take a vacation. Release yourself. Enter the gorgeous simple beauty of nature in the present moment, and thereby, reveal the nature of your own gorgeous heart.
This week presents an interesting relationship between gifts and growth, as I have drawn the Laziness card.
There is a definite distinction between allowing yourself to drop deeply into the present moment (experiencing), and laziness. The two are not the same.
Experiencing is about mindful absorption in the present moment, taking part in nourishing activities.
Laziness, on the other hand, is about lethargy, and the attempt to grab at shallow or harmful pleasures.
In this card, we see a person drinking alcohol, propped up by pillows. There is a sour expression on the person’s face. This person is surrounded by riches and comfort, yet he is clearly not happy.
There are two main forms of laziness. The first is trying to numb ourselves, trying to deaden and escape uncomfortable feelings. Usually people numb themselves through alcohol, drugs, unhealthy “comfort” food, television, movies, or over-indulgence of social media. In these ways, we are simply pushing down uncomfortable feelings under the surface. Over time, these feelings grow and become explosive energy within our bodies that eventually need to be released. We cannot run from our feelings forever. And if we let them build up, then it will be even more difficult to deal with them later. The key is to deal with them as they arise.
The second form of laziness comes about as a result of pushing ourselves too hard, working ourselves past our limit, and then collapsing into an exhausted heap. In this blurry stupor, we often turn to some of the coping methods described above, or we simply use our time unintentionally. Maybe we simply zone out on YouTube or we read crappy novels. Maybe we hang out with people who are comfortable or familiar, yet they do not help us advance on our spiritual path.
The wisdom, my friends, that is being presented to you this week is this: take the time for yourself during the week to Experience life by getting out into nature, and also spending intentional time with inspiring loved ones who affirm your spirit and worth. Take the time to laugh and play and put boundaries on how much time you work.
Balance is so crucial for the spiritual journey. If we have lost our balance, we have lost everything. We have forgotten who we are: Divine beings who have incarnated into bodies to have a human experience.
This week, prioritize your time for Experiencing and for the kinds of fun that enhance your spiritual growth. Stop working too much, move slower, and breathe.
If you’re nervous about making these kinds of changes, you can think of this reading as your permission slip. I hereby decree you shall flourish if you approach your week in this way!
