Tarot for the Soul ~ week of June 19, 2017

TFS basic pin (1)

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.

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.

Letting Go of Fortune-Telling: Tarot as a Healing Art

tarot-991041_960_720

Traditionally, Tarot has been viewed as fortune-telling. A way of predicting the future. This is how Tarot has been understood for hundreds of years, and this is how a majority of people still view Tarot today.

In the mainstream understanding, Tarot readers are often seen as “special” or “gifted” or as having “supernatural” abilities. They are often seen as somehow set apart from the rest of “normal” society.

However, as humanity moves into fifth-dimensional consciousness, we begin to realize that that which was once viewed as “supernatural” is, actually, simply a natural part of the human domain. We begin to view our old tools in new ways.

At this time in human history, Tarot readers across the world are evolving their approach to their craft. These revolutionary Tarot readers are dropping the emphasis on Tarot as a method of fortune-telling and viewing it for what it really is, at its deepest core.

Tarot is a healing art.

More and more readers understand that the sound of the human voice is incredibly powerful.

By setting an intention for the vibration of the voice to act as a conduit of love and light, the actual content and meaning of the words spoken during a Tarot reading are actually secondary to the pure healing vibration of the tones.

Tarot readings (and all sorts of intuitive readings) can, of course, offer guidance on future actions and decisions. However, at the core, when a client comes, what they are seeking in the deepest part of their heart is not an “answer,” but rather a feeling of relief. They want to feel trust and peace. They want to feel happy. They want to feel faith. They want a feeling of wholeness and connection to the Universe.

A Tarot reader has a radically powerful role, as, through the loving tone of their voice and by doing their own daily inner work to raise their own vibration, they can offer a deep healing for their clients.

In essence, the Tarot reader’s job is not to discern the “true” meaning of the cards or to give an “accurate” reading, but rather to relax as much as possible in the presence of the client. By relaxing, they allow their vocal cords to become a clear channel of higher vibrations of love energy. When the client feels this vibration (usually on a subconscious level), they instantly relax—and in their relaxation, they release the stagnant and chaotic energies of fear, confusion, anger, and negativity that brought them to the reading in the first place.

A Tarot reader’s ultimate purpose is not to hook the client into becoming a regular customer or to subtly manipulate them into relying on them in the future, but, actually, to assist them in tapping into their own intuitive abilities. Thus, Tarot readers become teachers and healers.

The best readers will subtly teach the client that they actually do not need them. They do this through incorporating mini-lessons, tips, and strategies into the reading sessions about how to tune into their own inner voice. They help the client become their own reader. They may even go so far as to spend some time during each reading explaining how the cards work, so clients can feel confident in using a deck on their own (I do this.) Ultimately, these enlightened readers trust that the best way to be in business is to effectively “put themselves out of business” with each and every single client. Indeed, at this time of great awakening on our planet, there is no shortage of work!

It is good when a client becomes a former client, because that means they have awakened to their own intuition. And this will have a ripple effect, as they share their light with others. The circle spreads. The awakening grows.

One of my favorite intuitives, Gigi Young, often talks about how a prediction is simply an invitation. A prediction is not a set-in-stone declaration of what will be—rather, a prediction is simply an invitation that the client can reflect upon, using their own intuition, and decide whether or not they want to accept that invitation.

For example, a Tarot reader says that you will quit your job and move across the country. As the reader is speaking the words, you can tune in to your own body. Do these words bring a feeling of excitement or peace, or do they bring a sense of confusion or fear? Do these words bring a feeling of relief, or a feeling of agitation? Your own body and emotions are key to discerning whether you’d like to say Yes to the reader’s invitation or to say No Thanks. The power is solely and totally yours.

Indeed, the power is ours. Done are the days of fortune-telling, where humanity believed each person’s future is written in stone and that psychics and priests are some “special” few who can save us.

Here are the days, instead, of personal empowerment. Here are the days of creative manifestation: where we make our own futures, from the deep recognition that we are all Divinity.

We are all psychic because we are all Source energy. 

Ultimately, the most enlightened readers today take seriously their mission of spreading the gospel of personal empowerment and awakened seeing. They want to convey their guidance to their clients in the smallest number of sessions, because they genuinely want their clients to receive the healing that they need as fast as it is possible within the client’s highest good.

Most of all, readers who view their craft as a healing art understand that they are part of a collaboration. They have stepped outside the corporate mentality of scarcity and competition, and work hand-in-hand with other healers and teachers, knowing that the more they can support others in their community to do their work, the better off all of us will be. The transition of this planet into fifth-dimensional consciousness will not come about from a repetition of the third-dimensional, fear-based, scarcity mindsets. No. The new way is that of collaboration, that of trust, love, abundance, and unconditional love.

As Tarot readers and healers, lightworkers, wayshowers, and spiritual guides of all kinds step forward into a new future, it is my wish that we may release the karmic bonds of “fortune-telling” and step boldly into a new future.

Let’s let go of fortune-telling. Let’s heal ourselves—together.

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.

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.


 

Dear loves, I’ve enjoyed being with you through this reading. You are all so beautiful!

WEEK OF MAY 29, 2017

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!

Dear friends, this week I have drawn the Flowering card (queen of rainbows).WP_20170514_002

This card represents a beautiful occurrence that has manifested after a time of great patience. It represents a mountaintop moment, a moment a bliss, a moment where the clouds part and the sun shines through so brilliantly. At this flowering moment, words seem to fail and all you can do is FEEL.

This card points to an accomplishment, promotion, or advancement that takes place in the physical world of form. It could be in the area of finances, career, or a personal project. A seed you planted is now ready to blossom.

When you feel the beauty of this moment, breathe deeply. Life in human form may not always, as you know, feel quite so magical. Take some time to savor this. Remember to lift your hands in thanks. And, most importantly, share the abundance and the joy you feel with others! Spread your love around, like the wind! Help others to savor the flowering fragrance in the air.

 

GROWTH:

I have chosen “The Source” card (ace of fire)photo_Fire Ace

This week, your challenge is learning how to let go. (This is a continuation from the lessons you learned from last week, with the no-thingness card.)

This week you will be challenged regarding how to let go of the part of you that falsely imagines it “knows” all things.

This week, you will be presented with the opportunity to release some of your ego. In particular, there is an arrogant and judgmental/critical aspect to your earthly personality that is ready to be released.

Dear friend, please understand that there are higher wisdoms than the wisdoms that we can fathom. There are realms of bliss and light outside of what the human brain can comprehend. From these realms, love shines down into our realm. Wisdom enters, through the heart.

There are beings—angels, guides, ascended masters—and others who dwell in permanent connection to Source wisdom. These beings have much to share with us—if only we will allow them to. If only we can be brave enough to receive.

Indeed, it is so important for us this week to be able to admit: “I am open to the wisdom of higher realms.”

Please note that when I speak of “higher realms,” I am not doing so in a framework of judgment or blame or hierarchy. The higher realms do not look upon the lower realms with disdain. Another way of speaking about what I am speaking about is to say that there are realms with beings who are more evolved than we are. Just like a human being has more complex wisdom than a squirrel, so too do the higher realms have more wisdom than the normal mundane wisdom of this planet. There’s no judgment in this.

In fact, when we speak of more “evolved,” we also, simultaneously, speak of “more love.” More wisdom means more love. More love means more wisdom. The two always go hand in hand. Always.

Therefore, it’s safe to let down your guard, drop your shields, and relax into your heart-space and consciously open yourself up to the Source wisdom that wants to grace your life this week. Set the intention to be humble, open, and ready. Be ready for the wisdom. Be ready for the love.

This week you will feel the pressure of your Small Self (the part of you that is ruled by the ego) release into moments where you feel you are dissolving into nothing at all. Empty. Blank. The void. A clear space of nothing. You will feel totally calm and free. You will feel boundless: a part of everything and yet nothing at all.

This will happen outside of your meditation practice, outside of any formal spiritual practice that you do. It will rise up and naturally occur on its beautiful own. Watch for it. When it happens, do not cling to anything. Feel free to sit as long as you like, eyes open or closed, and simply feeling the space where there is only space. Drop your To Do list, and don’t move to do this or that. Don’t answer the phone; don’t pretend something is more important than This.

When the ego is dissolved, fear is healed. And when fear is healed, you can then enter the world with a residual glow from that experience. Others can sense it. You have a certain twinkle in your eye. You have a certain light.  A certain freedom.

 

GROWTH:

This week, your challenge will be to grow past some outdated tendencies. I have drawn The Miser card (4 of rainbows).unnamed (3)

During this week, you will feel an abundance of blessings pouring in, and you will be faced with a choice: Do I share, or do I hoard? Do I give freely, or do I cling?

The tendency to want to squirrel away happy feelings, material abundance, energy, or wisdom is a natural human impulse. However, this week, through your gift of No-thingness, you are moving, more and more, beyond the human realm. You are transcending the “normal,” the everyday, the common, the accepted.

This week, you are being asked by the Universe to share more with others. Serve more. Go out, in little ways and big ways, and serve your community, your family, your friends, and even strangers in shops and on streets. (Maybe especially strangers in shops and on streets!)

You have an abundance of wisdom, love, compassion, wealth, and kindness to share. You are an Infinite source of blessings to be shared.

Can you bless others? Can you take the time to forget yourself, and simply serve, without condition?

Selfless service is doing for others without thoughts of return. It is expanding the circle of love outside yourself simply because it feels good to do so.

You know that in order for this world to heal, you must first offer the world the healing that has been bestowed upon your own heart. You must share what you have learned, all you have received. And you have learned so much!

When we serve, our own gifts are multiplied. This is a law of the universe.

So, this week, the Miser card challenges you to open your heart and move beyond the miser mindset. Get out of your own little box and move into the wider expanse of our broader human family, seeing every face as a different version of yourself. Seeing every heart the possible recipient for your own deep love.

Tarot for the Soul ~ week of May 8, 2017

TFSpin_202

Welcome to your weekly Tarot for the Soul reading!

If you have been guided to this reading, then you are in the right place. This reading is meant for you, dear one.

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 8, 2017

 

May 8 spread

 

GIFTS:

This week I have been guided to the Conditioning card (XV Major Arcana).WP_20170429_003

This week you will be able to see more clearly all the ways you have been conditioned by society to believe you are worthless, small, helpless, needy, fragile. You will be shown, through synchronistic events and through the voice of your own intuition, lessons about your own power, and how that power directly contradicts with the false voice of society.

In the picture on this card, you see a lion who has lost his way. He believes he is a sheep. He lives among the sheep, and he even has one tied to his paws, which he carries upon his back. His load is heavy. See the look of sadness upon his face.

As this week unfolds, your higher power wants you to see how there is an ever-widening contrast between how you used to regularly feel and how you tend to feel now. You used to be the sad lion…but now you are, in general, happier. You have a sense of joy that you did not have before; a sense of deep peace and acceptance. This is because you are following your inner guidance. You know, more and more, who you truly are. You are able to experience your own truths rather than listen to the dictates of a sick society.

As you wake up to the false truths you’ve been taught, as you wake up out of the false conditioning, you move away from the sheep and realize the lion within.

Welcome this week with open arms, as you thank your Creator/Spirit/Angels (your higher power) for the blessings of clearer vision and a more open, receptive heart. Take some time this week to congratulate yourself for how far you’ve come. It’s truly remarkable!

 

GROWTH:

This week is the week of Integration (XIV Major Arcana). WP_20170429_001

Before I discuss this particular card’s meaning, I’d like to draw your attention to the fact that, this week, I’ve drawn two cards from the Major Arcana. Thus, it is certain that this week will be particularly loaded with opportunities for spiritual growth. This growth may feel quite intense at times, but do not fear, do not worry. Simply notice the worried thoughts that tend to enter your mind, and, once you notice them, simply let them go. Release them like a balloon into the wind. Clear the negative self-talk out of your mind, clear the doubts, the hesitations, the critical thoughts, and, simply, return to the present moment of now.

This week is all about the realization that life is more magical than you ever believed to be so. Ancient wisdom will be coming through to you from unexpected sources. A teacher will pop up for you in the least likely of places. Be open to this teacher. If this teacher speaks of things you do not quite fully understand, do not allow the mind to trick you into distancing or closing yourself off from this teacher, but rather breathe and notice how your body feels relaxed and peaceful around this person’s teachings. This relaxation is the true sign that you are meant to learn from this teaching.

This week’s growth is about the balancing of seeming opposites. Of an inner alchemy. On the card you notice there is both the eagle (known for its fire and fierceness) and there is also the swan (known for its watery peacefulness). Both of these are beautiful, are they not? Yes. Both are beautiful for their own unique aspects they bring to the world. One is not more beautiful than the other; one is not more “special” than the other.

Who is the swan inside of you and who is the eagle? Can you sense both parts? Do you favor one part and tend to stifle or discount the other?

So, this week, your challenge will be to absorb these deep teachings of integration, of inner alchemy. No need to rush out and share them with others quite yet. Just sit with them yourself. Be quiet, be still, and know in your bones that as you allow yourself to integrate the seeming opposites (seeming duality) within yourself and learn to find All as beautiful, All as right, then what you will do is, naturally, begin to unravel the conditioning of the human-made world within yourself. You will heal. You will create the inner alchemy within yourself, to prepare you for the next stage of your journey.

And so it is.

this week's reading

Gifts

This week is very interesting indeed! I have drawn the Fighting card (Knight of Clouds).

photo_Knight of Clouds, Fighting

Normally when this card comes up in a reading, it signifies a warning or a negative aspect. However, this week, it wants to communicate to you something different than usual.

This powerful card wants you to know that, this week, it would be in your benefit to notice and appreciate the power of paradox.

Paradox is when two (or more) seemingly opposing things are simultaneously true.

Here is an example of a paradoxical situation. If we value something too much, we cling to it. In clinging, we thereby de-value it and ultimately destroy what we love. Paradox #1.

What we have destroyed, however, we will then always possess, because it is linked to us in a karmic chain of remembrance. Once we realize the danger of clinging, we can then take a step back, and we can then learn to value all things equally. In so doing, we then learn the true meaning of love. To love is to value all things, simultaneously, and yet not depend on anything at all. To love is pure immersion in life, and, also, pure detachment. As you can see, multiple paradoxical layers exist in these seemingly opposing realities.

A specific example of paradox that this week’s card is prompting you to consider is: “What, or with whom, have you been fighting? How has this fighting served you in the past? What benefits did you receive from the conflict? What reasons do you have in the present to let the conflict go, while still cultivating gratitude for the fact that you used to fight?”

Paradoxes are powerful because they unfold at precisely the right moment to blow your mind open. They happen in precisely the way you need and at the time you need to reach your next level of growth.

Your gift this week is to delve into the power of paradox. Paradox shows us that our world is bigger than we imagine. It opens our mind. It expands our heart. It shows us the mystery of the Universe, reflected within the comings and goings of the story of our own life. This is why paradox has been studied by Zen masters, yogis, and mystics for ages.

Perhaps you are already aware of paradox’s power. Or perhaps this is a new concept for you. Regardless of where you are in your current journey with paradox, I invite you do take an action step for healing. This week, keep a Paradox Journal. Use the tool of writing to reflect upon the power of paradox in your life.

In addition to answering the question about fighting (mentioned in the paragraph above), write down moments in your daily life where you notice paradox. Write down your reflections, questions, observations. Then, when the thinking-mind has had its fun, move into 5-10 minutes of meditation afterward. Find a comfortable seated position and place your hands on your heart, feeling the breath of life flow into your heart-space. Relax and allow thoughts to drift in and out, not clinging or attaching to any one particular thought. Feel your presence. You’re your life force. And when you emerge from meditation, say a quick prayer of thanks to the Universe/God (whatever you call your higher power) for the power of paradox.

 

Growth

This week you are prompted to re-connect with the wisdom of The Source (Ace of Fire).

source cardThere are many ways you have been feeling disconnected—not just in this lifetime, but in previous, countless lifetimes. This particular lifetime is different, because you have the opportunity, like never before, to observe how you have been fooling yourself.

The story of separation, of disconnection from Source, is as old as humanity. We created it for a reason. But now the story is ending. Can you feel it?

The planet is shifting, and you are a great part of this shift. But in order to take the helm in your rightful place as guide and comforter for others, you must look deeper within your own body-mind. Ask yourself: Where do I feel tension? What aspects of my life feel discordant with my true self, my true passions? What emotions am I repressing? What shadows have I been denying?

The Source card wants you to know it’s all going to be okay. The wisdom you need is always there, inherent within you. If you can slow down the pace of your life, take time for meditation and self-care, take time to reflect on the deeper questions of life, you will begin to be more easily able to observe in your own body the patterns that have been erected over years and lifetimes—patterns such as fear, tension, anxiety, jealousy, sadness, or even despair. These are very human emotions most of us carry. It’s okay.

The Source card wants you to know that this is a very sacred, special time. It is a time where the momentum of energy on this planet is such that transformation is much easier than it used to be. Even ten or twenty years ago, growth like you are able to achieve now would take decades. Now you can do it in a few weeks, a few days. Sometimes a single day will feel like twelve lifetimes.

Your opportunity for growth this week is your purposeful re-connection with Source wisdom. (In truth, you were never really disconnected—it only appeared to be so.) Allow yourself to sink into the deep wisdom that can only come from Source—which is you, in your body, in this lifetime.

Your body tells the tale of how connected you feel or how disconnected you feel. Pay attention. If you feel stress or strain, that is an indication you have lost sight of your true self, which is the perfection of Source. Life is meant to be beautiful, and we truly are in the midst of birthing a new humanity. Stay strong, stay the course, breathe, and know you are supported by spirit guides and angels at all times.


 

Dear ones, these are your gifts and your areas for growth this week. If you liked this reading or found it helpful, please leave me a comment below. I would love to hear from you!

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

And so it is.

Tarot for the Soul ~ week of April 24, 2017

TFS this week pin

Welcome to Tarot for the Soul! Every Monday on the AWAKENING WITH blog, I will offer you a reading from my Osho Zen Tarot deck.

If you have been guided to this reading, then you are in the right place. This reading is meant for you, dear one.

Each week, I will draw two cards, offering you guidance for your week ahead.

The first card represents the gifts that are currently being showered upon you 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” for these gifts, and, by taking a moment to thank, we generate more positive energy so that more and more gifts may manifest in the future!

The second card represents your area(s) 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—and it is our highest wisdom which recognizes and embraces all. Our soul needs challenges in order to grow. So, stand and face these growth opportunities with an open heart.

Week of April 24, 2017

week 2_spread (1)

Gifts

I have drawn the Healing card (King of Water).Osho Zen_King of Water

This week, you are being encouraged to notice and accept the healing love given to you by friends.

These trusted companions will be able to help you: by listening, and by simply being near to you, as you reveal and talk about some issues that are ready to be healed. Don’t be afraid to cry, and don’t be afraid to receive their comforting touch and words.

Allow yourself to be loved by them, to really sink into the pleasure of being nurtured by these dear ones.

While it is always foundational to love yourself and to take care of yourself as the core of your spiritual practice, sometimes the healing you need to receive can come from an external source.

Don’t get caught up in feeling guilty or ashamed that you need assistance from others—simply relish this gift that the Universe is giving to you.

You are loved.

Growth

 I have drawn the card of Ripeness (9 of Rainbows).Osho Zen_9 of Rainbows (1)

This card is a reminder to slow waaaayyyy down, and to have patience.

This card reminds you that, in life, it is all about divine timing. If the apple on the tree is not yet ready to be picked, there is no sense in picking it. You cannot artificially speed along the process. If you barrel ahead and pick the apple too early, you will only have a mouthful of yuck.

So, wait. Breathe.

This week, be alert for the moment(s) when you want to rush ahead—with plans, with a project, or with a relationship. Breathe. Slow down. Ask yourself, “Am I trying to control the situation?” “What am I afraid of?”

Remember: Your intuition grows as you put your ego (the part of you that seeks instant gratification) on the shelf, and allow yourself, more and more, to have complete faith in the Universal plan.

Sometimes, all that’s required of you is to wait.

And that is good enough.
