Tarot for the Soul ~ week of August 28-September 3, 2017

this week pin

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.

The first card represents the gifts that will be showered upon you this week by the Universe. We always have gifts being delivered to us—and spiritual mastery lies in slowing down enough to be able to cultivate gratitude. Our soul longs to say “thank you”… and, so, by taking this moment to give thanks, we generate even 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. So, stand and face these growth opportunities with an open, courageous, loving heart.

GIFTS:

photo_clouds AceThe Consciousness Card (Ace of Clouds) is an amazing card. It is the Universe tapping you on the shoulder and saying, “Hello, beautiful! Great job—you’ve come a long way!”

This card is all about taking stock, taking time to reflect on how much we’ve grown through past challenges.

Indeed, this card is a moment of joyful pause. A moment of triumph and parade.

We stand in a place of awe, gazing back at our own evolution.

You are a conscious, awake, and aware being, shining your light for others. Helping the planet to awaken.

Recommendation: Take a bit of space for yourself this week to cultivate gratitude for how far you’ve come on your journey. Look back at some photographs of yourself from one year ago, five years ago, and then ten years ago. Pull out your journal and freewrite some responses to the following prompts. What has happened in one year? What have you learned? If you were to have a conversation with yourself of five years ago, what would you tell you? What secrets would you share? How would your self of ten years ago react to seeing who you are today?

 

GROWTH:

You want to know how can you become even more amazing, even more conscious than you are today? The answer is:

Let go of the Guilt (8 of Clouds).photo_clouds 8

Guilt is like a poison. It rots our internal organs. It destroys our peace and it brings our vibration down.

What are you guilty about? What aspect of your life do you judge as “wrong” or “bad”? Are there people or environments in your life who trigger feelings of guilt?

Being triggered into guilt (or any other lower vibration) is always always a choice. There is always a moment where we can breathe and choose to feel our Holy, Divine Presence. There is always a moment where we can choose to tap into the Infinite Source of our Being. It’s a choice. It’s a space that’s always there.

This card has been drawn because there is guilt lingering in your energetic field. This guilt is old: it’s from the past. Let it go.

Instead of guilt, how about gratitude?

Gratitude comes from the Latin gratus, meaning “pleasing.” Even if what happens in your daily life doesn’t always please you, even if it’s not what you prayed to the Universe to manifest…can you still feel the deeper truth that what is, ultimately, most pleasing is exactly what is happening?

Your highest growth depends upon a surrender to exactly what this moment is.

Let go of the guilt.

Move into yes. Be in accord with whatever is happening. Be the river that flows.

If we can do that, if we can surrender to the river of life, then a deep gratitude fills our hearts, and there can be absolutely no room for guilt.

WEEK OF JULY 24, 2017

 

this week spread 7

GIFTS:

You are being asked by the Universe, by the higher forces of light and love, to express yourself and feel the joy. This week, my friends, is all about Creativity (3 of Major Arcana).creativity card

This is a beautiful week indeed! You are being asked to abandon yourself to the sheer joy of creating: whether that be writing in your journal, dancing alone in your living room, crafting an uplifting message on social media, making a meal, carving wood, singing a song, or selecting a beautiful outfit in the morning.

It is time for you to feel, truly feel, where the source of all creativity emerges from. It is time for you to feel, truly feel, the dissolution of ego, the dissolution of separateness, that happens when we create from a space of love.

When we allow ourselves to be a conduit for the Divine Source…the dance does the dancer. The song sings the singer. The paint paints the painter. The artist becomes a host and a vessel for love.

Usually in our society, we think of creativity in the opposite way. We think of learned techniques and mastery that supposedly comes from years of training. We think of degrees and certificates of achievement. Yet that is not the deepest truth of how creativity happens. The deepest truth is the reality that the purest and most beautiful forms of creativity can only come when we surrender to Source, to God, to Goddess, to the Universe (whatever you want to call it).

It is through the brave surrender of the small self that we can flow into the blissful, ecstatic embrace of the Big Self, the Infinite. A feeling washes over us. It is a wonderful feeling that, somehow, we have always known this connection, have always known this love and fun.

For, truly, creativity is nothing more than fun. Enjoying life. We came here to this planet to experience joy. The Buddha said that life is suffering—but his message was meant for those who were/are ready to begin the process of waking up. He wanted to show what we are leaving behind. He wanted to contrast the new way (happiness) with the old way (suffering).

Many of us, lightworkers and wayshowers of a new humanity, came to Planet Earth with a specific intention. We came here with the mission to heal and awaken others, to end suffering. And, yet, let us not make our mission into a grim duty. Our mission is not meant to be melancholic or serious. Rather, the way we can best shine our light in the world and complete our missions is to wholeheartedly surrender to the creative force that flows through us—joyfully!

GROWTH:

This week, your two cards fit together in a very lovely and obvious fashion. Let us contemplate how the Politics Card (7 of Clouds) fits with the Creativity Card.politics card

The Politics Card shows us a politician who is hiding behind a mask of innocence and beauty. Underneath, though, his hidden face is green, sickly, grotesque. Underneath the mask, he is a snake. His purpose is to tempt you, just like the snake tempted Adam and Eve in the Biblical story of the downfall of humanity.

Who is this politician?

This week, I invite you to ask that question, and to see the ways in which you yourself complete activities, tasks, and interactions in your daily life in a way that holds the energy of the politician. In what ways do you try to manipulate situations, people, and life in general in order to try to get what you want? In what ways do you not present your real face to life?

Our real face is that of relaxed joy. Our real face is that of loose (not tense) shoulders; our real face is that of deep (not shallow) breathing. Our real face is the face of creativity, innocence, spontaneity, compassion, curiosity, peace, and joy. Our real face, our real self, has no persona and no hidden motive. It is what it is—nothing to pretend, nothing to hide.

Have you ever loved someone so much that you simply could not lie to them? Have you ever cared for someone so much that you put their needs before your own? Have you ever felt so in tune with the Universe that you smiled at strangers on the street? Those kinds of energies, my friends, are the kinds of energies of our true self. The connected self. The whole self. The self that is in the constant flow of creativity.

By taking some time to look deeply into ourselves, even if it’s painful, asking ourselves some tough questions about when we try to manipulate—rather than trust—life, then we can begin to unravel some of that old energy of deceit.

In this day and age, hardly anyone believes that politicians can “save” us. We simply are too smart for that. We understand that saving comes from within. There is no politician that can swoop down from heaven and magically wave their wand at the troubles of our planet and fix it all. No. Rather, now, we as a collective human species are waking up to the reality that what needs to be attended to, during this time, is internal work. Each one of us needs to spend more time each day in silence and meditation, more time in self-reflection, more time in spiritual practice and looking deeply into what motivates us, and what it is that best serves the healing process within.

For, truly, when our focus is not on impressing others with our outward masks, but rather on healing our own hearts regardless of what others say or think, then the need to hold that old mask dies away—and what is left in its place is the real face. The face of love. The face that radiates the flow of all creation.


 

Thanks so much friends. I hope this reading was helpful for you. Please reach out if you’d like a one-on-one reading with me. I offer these via phone or Skype.

Hugs & more Hugs,

WEEK OF JULY 17, 2017

 

this week spread

GIFTS:

Our gifts this week include the comfort and the peace of knowing that wherever we go, we are at home in the Universe. This is portrayed by the Slowing Down Card (Knight of Rainbows).WP_20170709_001

In any situation, regardless of geographic location or the people we are with, we are always at home. Like a lovely turtle, we carry our homes with us.

The turtle shell is a metaphor for our heart—and that is where can always tune. No matter what’s going on, we can always close our eyes, and breathe and be with our heart. When we slow down and feel our heart, there is a deep sense of self-acceptance that arises. There is self-love.

This week, when life around you seems hectic or even chaotic, take some time to breathe, slow down, and feel into your heartspace. Feel this space expand with love. Know that you are home, wherever you are. There is no need to rush anywhere or accomplish anything—because you are completely full, completely whole, right here right now. In this moment.

 

GROWTH:

This week’s card indicates a suggestion for you to drop into your Innocence (19 of Major Arcana).Unknown

First of all, I think it’s fascinating that this week’s reading brought in two animals. The tortoise (as just discussed) and the praying mantis.

The praying mantis is perched on the wise monk’s finger, and it looks like the bug is teaching the monk!

Indeed, as we walk along our life’s path, our soul’s awakening journey, we can learn so much from the animal kingdom. They can be some of our most profound teachers.

While the tortoise teaches us to slow down and accept ourselves, the praying mantis teaches us about the miracle of curiosity and intelligence. These small insects are incredibly keen, and if we watch them long enough, we begin to get a sense of their powerful capabilities to reason, to plan, to think. Gazing at a praying mantis is rather surreal—you begin to feel like you’ve entered another planet! A planet where the bugs are just as smart as the humans!

In this Innocence card, we see a wise sage having a deep communion with the insect. We see the sage’s face: full of surprise, wonder, awe, and play. There is a youthful innocence to the scene: springtime flowers in full bloom decorate the background, and the colors are soft and radiant.

The man and the insect seem to be having a deep moment of connection. The praying mantis is cocking his head to one side, as if to say, “What is your story, old man?” He seems to be asking a question, and the old sage seems to be delighting in not knowing the answer. The old sage seems to be speechless. Happy. Content to enjoy watching his little friend, wordless, and learning from it.

To cultivate this kind of patient, curious innocence is an opportunity for great growth in our lives. It is perhaps the greatest intelligence. If we can realize that the bugs of this world have as much to teach us about life as do books, if we can realize that the birds have as much to teach us about love as our lovers, if we can realize that all the sages in the universe can only hint at the beauty of a rose, then we will be fulfilled. We will walk this Earth, in a profound sense of lightness and joy.

This week, can you recall your youthful, curious innocence? Can you delight in this world around you? Can you learn from unexpected sources?


 

Have a wonderful, blessed week!

WEEK OF JULY 10, 2017

WP_20170630_001

GIFTS:

This week you are in tune with your intuition and soft, flowing, feminine nature, as indicated by the Receptivity Card (Queen of Water).WP_20170630_002

As situations, events, thoughts, and people come into your sphere this week, you will be more able to receive them non-judgmentally, allowing all, letting all to be as they are (without needing them to change). You will be in a spirit of compassion and divine receptivity. You will be able to tap into a part of yourself that is deeply trusting. In this open heartspace, you will be filled with an exquisite tenderness from the Universe; you will easily be able to let that energy flow from you, to nourish and heal others around you.

This week is about getting in touch with your feminine side—and not feminine in terms of gender or what culture tends to mean by that word…rather, feminine energy. This week is about getting in touch with the part of you that nurtures, that mothers, that allows, the part of you that feels and knows beyond logic.

 

GROWTH:

This week you are being nudged by the Universe to enter a new phase of maturity, as indicated by the card of The Rebel (4 of Major Arcana).WP_20170630_003

At first glance, this card might appear to be wholly positive and congratulatory (and, yes, in many readings, this card can mean just that); however, for this particular week, this card indicates something challenging. It is indicating a need for growth. It is asking you to look deep inside, and ponder the question: “Who/what am I fighting against? And why am I fighting?”

As any parent knows, the teenage years are often the most challenging. When teenagers start to get a real whiff of the dysfunction of society, they rebel. They listen to music their parents hate, they get piercings and tattoos, they drink and do drugs, and they engage in all sorts of rebellious, risky behavior. This is their way of breaking the chains of society. They are finding themselves. They are differentiating themselves from their parents and finding their own space and voice.

We often carry this spirit of teenage rebellion into our adult lives. For example, in my own experience, it was very important for me, for a period of time, to be an outspoken polyamory activist. I constantly wrote about it and talked about it, in the effort to raise awareness about the multiple ways we humans can be in romantic relationship beyond just the culturally-condoned avenue of monogamy. However—there came a certain point when I realized that the way that I was going about it all was incongruent with my spiritual path. Although, in some ways, I was doing good work, I was also angry. I was fighting and shouting with the world.

Eventually, I had to let the rebel in me dissolve. It was time for a higher level of maturity. I made the shift to simply being polyamorous, but without all the fanfare, without the need to storm into a room and announce my point. I realized that what I needed to do, at a deeper level, was to embody love in all situations. And not just in romantic/sexual love, but unconditional love (agape love) in every single interaction with every single human being I encounter. This my deeper path. This is my dharma.

So, friend, what is your deeper path? In what ways have you been the angry rebel, fighting against people and society? Can you allow that reactivity in you to dissolve, rising instead to a new, higher version of yourself? Can you mature? Can you evolve? What is the deeper lesson that you’ve been trying to understand, underneath the rebellion? How can you continue the amazing work you do in the world—but in a less aggressive way?

This week asks you to consider these significant questions…. a process that has the potential to shift the entire course of your life.

A big week indeed.


 

Thanks so much for tuning in, friends. I have enjoyed being with you this week and all weeks. Sending so much love to you.

If you’d like to schedule a more in-depth private reading with me, I’m available via phone and Skype.

May you be healthy.

May you be joyful.

May you be blessed.

WEEK OF JULY 3, 2017

 

GIFTS:

This week, your gifts can be understood through the No-Thingness Card (5 of Major Arcana).photo_5 Major Arcana

To understand this card, we must understand that No-Thingness is not nothing. It’s different.

When we speak of No-Thingness, rather, we speak of the formless, the unmanifested, the pure potential that lies in the moment(s) before something emerges. Before creation, there is the formless Void. After creation disintegrates, there is also the formless Void.

The Void is the beginning and the end; the always.

Zen teachings talk about this. In fact, they have built their whole philosophy around it. For Zen practitioners, they understand that our greatest fear as humans is the Void…and if we can—through meditation and heartfelt spiritual practice—release our fear of the Void, then we can live our daily lives with much more beauty, grace, and ease.

This week, your gift is the stillness, peace, the utter quiet of the formless. This is a place where you can receive the deepest rest. In sleep, we often dream—but in the Void, there is nothing. Nothing to think, nothing to do, nothing to hold on to. The usual comfort of our humanness is gone…and, in its place, there is total peace.

This week is a wonderful time to intentionally immerse yourself in the Void. This will not feel so scary, rather it will feel like a gift for you. A blessing. More specifically, my suggestion is to spend more time than usual in meditation. Indeed, this is a great time to intentionally go into those blank spaces where nothing is “happening.”

This is a great week for rest, between adventures.

 

GROWTH:

What a wonderful week of growth for you to look forward to! Today I’d like to talk to you about the Ordinariness Card (8 of Rainbows).WP_20170624_001

In this card, we see a woman wearing blue jeans, walking under some trees, having just picked some flowers. She is peaceful, easy.

There is nothing “dazzling” about the scene. The colors are soft and gentle. There are no reporters with flashbulbs, there are no admirers telling her how wonderful she is, there are no hurricanes or lightning bolts in the sky. It’s simply a quiet spring day, and she is simply a simple woman walking.

At first glance, perhaps this image might seem boring. Yet, if we sink deep into this image, we feel a tremendous sense of peace. All is well. There is not one more thing this woman needs to accomplish. She is perfect, just as she is. In her blue jeans and solitude.

In truth, this lovely card points to the learning lesson that Zen has known for centuries: That even the most seemingly mundane moments (chopping wood, carrying water) are incredibly beautiful if we can allow ourselves to be totally present within them. The trick is not to do the task in a way that seeks praise from others. No. If we can simply live our lives in a simple way, being totally present with every single thing we are doing—whether doing laundry, cooking a meal, helping our child with their homework, walking the dog, or whatever—then we realize the truth of our enlightened Buddhahood within.

The ordinary, then, is not labeled ordinary. The ordinary then actually becomes the extraordinary. Because life itself is extraordinary.

WEEK OF JUNE 26, 2017

 

GIFTS:

Dear friends, this week please keep in mind the Moment to Moment card (2 of rainbows).WP_20170618_005

This card presents the gift of questions. As you navigate the waters of life, can you keep your balance? Can you keep your eyes gently gazing at a fixed, still point ahead of you, rather than getting distracted by all the commotion of all the many things, people, energies, and situations swirling around you? Can you be present in a moment of peace?

This card is about finding tranquility and balance within even the most chaotic of situations. Even if you live in the city and you are bombarded by noise, traffic, and pollution—can you find peace, regardless? Even if you live in a house with those who stress you out or annoy you—can you find peace within your own soul?

And, then, ask yourself these deeper questions: What is the most important aspect of my life? What kind of personal qualities, ethics, and characteristics am I aiming to cultivate? What are the typical blocks and chronic upsets on my path of evolution?

Be centered, be balanced, be calm this week. Keep your whole being gently focused on the present moment, and don’t let yourself fall off course by getting distracted by all the comings and goings around you.

Be patient, be graceful, and cultivate simple yet strong confidence in your path.

GROWTH:

You are being encouraged by this Universe this week to share more abundantly than ever before, as indicated by the Sharing card (queen of fire).WP_20170618_004

This card doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to share money or finances, although, for some people, it may mean that. Use your intuition about specifics. Tarot cards speak to each person individually, gently allowing the whispers of the heart to unfurl.

What is your way to share, this week?

With what have you been blessed so that you may share with others? With what are you rich, so that you may pass on the wealth to your fellow human beings?

This card is a reminder that we all have our beautiful stock of energies, feelings, materials, time, and resources to share. We all have this. Even the homeless man on the street has gifts to share—if you take the time to stop and chat with him, you will find out.

No one is excluded from the river of life, and the river of life spreads the water of love throughout this great world.

As you share this week, notice what happens to your heart. Notice how it moves, shifts, and, ultimately, expands. Notice how the giving is the same as the receiving; notice how they are one and the same.

Enjoy!

WP_20170612_004

GIFTS:

Dear friends, let us ponder the Ripeness card (9 of rainbows).WP_20170612_001

This week you are being encouraged to take action. Yet, this is not action in the “normal” way. Instead, you will be able to take your action in a way that is totally effortless. Without stress or any force whatsoever.

In Taoism, there is a concept called Wu Wei.

This basically means that when we are totally absorbed and engaged in the present moment of what we are doing, that action can then arise spontaneously and effortlessly, and we will not only thoroughly enjoy the action but we will also be extremely successful in it.

This week, can you bring some Wu Wei into your life? Can you allow the ripe action to flow from a space of ease and grace? Can you allow the moments of pure perfection to flow?

If you take action at this time, in a way that is spontaneous, natural, and without force, then you will be successful in what you do.

GROWTH:

This week, I have selected the Suppression card (10 of fire).WP_20170612_002

This is certainly not the happiest looking card in the deck. Yikes! What does this card mean?

Well, simply stated, there are words that you have been suppressing for fear that you will create disharmony and negative feelings in those around you. You have been suppressing words of truth that you long to speak, yet you’ve been stuck. The words have lodged themselves in your throat chakra, and you have been unable to fully express yourself in your true vision.

This week, I encourage you to break out of the ropes and chains of suppression, and stand proudly and boldly in your own beautiful light. Stand tall. Look someone directly in the eye and speak.

When you speak, speak with kindness but also with a conviction in your own wisdom. Do not fear others’ reactions to your words, but simply speak, being in the present moment, aligned with the vibration of truth. Understand that however people react is their business. Understand that what is most important for your learning at this time is to stand in your sovereignty.

For it is through this release that you will find a new path. A new joy.

Tarot for the Soul ~ week of June 12, 2017

june 19 pin

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.

Hooray!!! This week I’ve drawn the Celebration card (3 of water)!!!WP_20170604_003

What your guides want you to understand about this week is that you need not wait for the “perfect occasion” to celebrate. You need not schedule a party or wait for a promotion or wait for someone to invite you on a wild excursion. Rather, celebration can be done right here, right now, regardless of the external conditions.

Even if it is raining outside, go outside and dance! Even if you are sitting in a cubicle, take a few moments to sway your body back and forth to some lovely music! Each moment, no matter how seemingly ordinary or mundane, is a moment for celebration, for fun, for play.

The underlying emotion and realization underneath a spirit of celebration is that of gratitude. When we celebrate, we are tapping into that feeling of gratitude for the sheer joy of being alive. We realize life is a precious awesome gift—so hooray! Time to party!

 

GROWTH:

Your opportunity for growth this week is represented by the Silence card (XVII of Major Arcana).WP_20170604_004

This is a crucial stepping stone, a crucial moment in your life. Something has just shifted in your reality, and you need to give it time and space for a review.

This time is about going inward, about taking some space from others, and to go within. This week is a great time for meditation and solitary activities in quiet spaces. Go outside for walks in nature; take soothing baths; practice yoga at home; meditate. Go within, and listen for the messages that are waiting to be revealed.

The key is not to “try” to hear the messages. Simply relax and let them come. The messages may not even come in words, in fact—they may simply come in the form of a feeling or a strong inner knowing. They may be beyond words.

Once you find and enter this place of stillness, of silence within you, breathe slowly. Get in touch with your body’s need to de-tense, and give yourself up wholly to the experience. The Universe is asking you to take a Pause right now. To retreat from ordinary human activities, and to carve out some space for sacred retreat. It is here that you will settle into yourself, and find the peace that you seek.

And, remember, as you take this space for silence, you are also, too, celebrating. The two are not separate. As you sink into the glorious silence, you give silent thanks for the beauty of being alive. You are so blessed! You are so fortunate to live the kind of life that allows you to rest. Some people on the planet are not so fortunate. Take some time to give some prayers of thanks this week.

May you be blessed.
May you be abundant.
May you shine your radiant light.

And so it is.

This week, we explore ourselves through the Flowering card. WP_20170514_002

This card means different things during different phases of life. It has many meanings. This week, the card has a very unique meaning for you, one that I encourage you to explore with bravery and an open heart.

This week, the Flowering card encourages you to celebrate your sexuality.

Being in a body is a very beautiful occurrence.

Being in a body is a gift!

Throughout human history, we’ve had a very contradictory and often confusing relationship with sexuality. Various religions and spiritual paths view sexuality as sinful, wrong, or of a “lower” nature. And, yet, there are also many spiritual paths who celebrate sexuality, such as many Pagan traditions and Tantric paths.

So, what is the truth?

This week, you are encouraged to fully feel the sexual blossomings, the sexual urges within yourself, and to celebrate them. This does not necessarily mean that you need to outwardly act upon them with others, or even to masturbate. (Although you can, if that feels right for you.)

At core, what this card is about is this: the celebration of our desire to experience the flowering of life through connection and sensuous bodily experience.

When sensual/sexual urges rise up this week, do not label. Do not form an opinion whether bad or good. Do not judge. Do not analyze. Simply drop fully into the feeling within your body and emotions. Immerse yourself.

For example, you are standing on an ocean beach, and you suddenly feel a wave of sexual/sensual energy pulse through your whole body. Without getting lost in thought about what it might mean, you instinctively lower your body to the sand and feel yourself caress the sand with your hands and feet, deeply enjoying the sensations. Or you might be walking in a forest, and are suddenly overcome by your root chakra pulsating with longing. Without forming an opinion about what is right or wrong, you might simply find yourself hugging a tree, and feeling the bark pressing gently against your lower chakras. You breathe deep, enjoying.

There are so many ways to celebrate our sexuality. There is a growing global movement called ecosexuality, the practice of of cultivating intimate, sensual, and/or sexual relationships with not just other humans but all of Gaia herself. The ecosexual movement is about seeing Earth itself as our lover, a committed partner with whom we both adore and serve.

My friends, take some time this week to celebrate and allow the gifts of sexuality. Look in the mirror and say some affirmations: “I am beautiful.” “I am a powerful sexual being.” “I am a creator.” Or, if you identify as asexual, you could look into the mirror and say, “I appreciate and affirm my unique nature” or “I fully engage with the creation of life through my own unique vision.”

Through this celebration of sexuality—without guilt or shame—we learn that we are all embodied sovereign beings. We learn that we have the power to co-create with all of life. Indeed, sexuality is about the power of creation. Just as the flowers bear their beautiful petals in order allure for their truest loves, the bees, so too are we given these beautiful, perfect, wonderful bodies—bodies capable of passion, attraction, wonder, and beautiful desire!

GROWTH:

 

This card, the Clinging to the Past card, is all about feeling blocked.WP_20170529_004

The woman in this card wants to turn around. She wants to make a change in her life, but she has a block stuck on her head, confusing her thoughts and muddling her priorities.

On the card, we see little lips: reminders of words spoken by herself and others from the past, keeping her locked into old memories and old patterns.

The wisdom for you, dear one, is to let go of the past! Be in the beautiful now. The past is over, finished.

Human society has trained us to believe that the past always dictates present possibilities and future outcomes. But this is not so! If we look to the new sciences, to quantum physics, we learn that seemingly “impossible” things are, actually, present within everyday reality. For example, one minute a person can have a tumor, and then the next minute, the tumor is gone. These things happen all the time. Many people have called them miracles, but that terminology can be a bit loaded with religious baggage for some.

What I think of as a miracle is really another way of saying “timeline jumping.” A timeline jump is the radical act of making a choice to be so focused in the present moment and so focused on what we want to experience or create in the present moment that the past simply drops away. We jump from one timeline, one storyline to another.

Have you ever had an experience of getting a Tarot reading, and then you find that what was predicted to happen in the future turned out to be inaccurate? Well, that is simply because, you timeline jumped.

You see, in order for a specific future prediction to occur means that you must continue to remain on the same timeline, which means that you must continue to make generally the same types of choices and have the same type of mindset until that point in the future where the prediction was forecast.

As human beings awaken to more and more of their amazing divine nature, humans are going to be shifting timelines more rapidly and quickly. With each passing year, the rate of growth and change for humanity speeds up. If you take a moment to self-reflect on your own life, I am sure you will feel that to be true. Think of the growth you’ve experienced over the last two or three months, and compare that to the growth you have felt over the entire year previous to that. I am willing to bet that you, like so many others, are going through MASSIVE change at this time.

Humanity is shifting at a never-before-seen pace. There is an astounding progression and amplification of energy. There is a global awakening.

This week, notice the areas in your life, in your mind, in your emotions, where you are clinging to the past. Notice, and release.

As you do this, you make your system lighter, and you make yourself more available for major positive timeline shifts.

You open up the future to incredible possibilities.

WEEK OF MAY 29, 2017

GIFTS:

 

I have drawn the Experiencing card.unnamed (1)

(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.

 

GROWTH:

 

This week presents an interesting relationship between gifts and growth, as I have drawn the Laziness card.unnamed (2)

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!
