Tarot for the Soul ~ week of September 25-October 1, 2017

TFS basic 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.

This week, your life is filled with helpful animal spirits, guiding your way.photo_19 Major Arcana

Your first card, Innocence (19 of Major Arcana), is reminding you that there are magical moments with magical creatures all around us. Life is magic! If we can slow down enough to notice even the small beings, such as insects, our minds and hearts will expand, with the realization that these so-called “tiny” creatures are huge in their ability to awaken us to the deeper meanings of life.

Have you ever spent an afternoon with an ant? I did, a few months ago. I sat in a park, on a blanket, under the sun, and watched a single ant, for a very long time. She (or he, or whatever) crawled up and down the folds of my striped Mexican blanket, crawled up onto my foot, off the blanket onto the grass, and then back onto the blanket again. I hunched down, really close to the ground. I rested my chin on the blanket and brought my eyes as close to the ant as I could. I bonded with her.

It was one of the loveliest experiences.

This week, I invite you to take some time for a lovely, innocent experience. Find a small creature, whether that be the family pet, or a small bug, bird, or reptile out in nature. Find an animal and spend some time with it. Be still. Watch. Allow your mind to soften, and apprehend the glories that this beautiful little creature is whispering. Get in touch with your innocence again.

GROWTH:

Your second animal guide for the week is a friendly tortoise, in the Slowing Down Card (Knight of Rainbows).WP_20170709_001

In this card, the tortoise’s skin and shell is colored by brilliant, sparkling rainbows. There are rainbows everywhere, on the ground and in the nearby water, showcasing the amazing spectrum of light that is available to the sight of all beings—if we can slow down enough to see.

This week is about sight. Are you really seeing everything around you? Are you slowing down enough, like the tortoise, to really take it all in with your eyes?

This card gently reminds us that if we take the time to breathe and move at a slower pace, the mysteries of the Universe will reveal themselves right before our very eyes.

The Universe knows that this is a difficult thing, sometimes, for you to do. It is an area of growth for you. Our culture demands a fast pace, demands multi-tasking, demands a pace that absolutely breaks the possibility for spiritual awakening. It is your job to say “NO!” to the culture, and to be a rebel and slow down. For it is only through slowing down that you will awaken your magical spiritual sight and see the rainbows.


 

Dear friends,

I love you all so much!

I have some news for you today.

A few days ago, I received a vision. It was very, very clear and powerful. The Divine is now asking me to exclusively focus my energies on Reiki, teaching meditation, and awakening coaching.

Although I have aimed to make Tarot for the Soul to be in the spirit of Zen (mostly about providing guidance about the present moment), the vision showed me that offering any sort of predictions, any sort of prophecy work is not what will be of the highest benefit to those who are ready for my guidance. I was invited to start a new chapter.

I am certainly grateful for having had the opportunity to share these beautiful Tarot for the Soul readings with you for the past six months. It has been inspiring, fun, and uplifting work!

I have heard positive feedback from many of you about how much these readings have touched your soul. This has made me so happy! I know in my heart that these readings have served a Divine purpose and helped many progress on their awakening path.

Sometimes chapters last a long time, and sometimes they are short. This time for Tarot for the Soul was rather short. And that’s okay.

However, I want to reassure you that I am still available to you for assistance. Please get in touch with me anytime, via Skype or phone, for spiritual guidance sessions and energy healing.

As a special treat, this week I’m offering Skype/phone sessions for $40, for both new and returning clients. If we haven’t worked one-on-one together yet, and you feel the calling, I invite you to heed that inner calling. It would be my absolute pleasure to serve you in this beautiful awakening time.

All My Love To You,

Anya  ♥

This week is going to be a little different, dear friends.

As you know, I normally pull cards and interpret them for you.

What I’d like to invite you to do this week is to use your own powers of intuition to interpret the cards. Don’t worry—I will guide you.

Yes, you can do this!

So, I have drawn two cards, as usual, representing your gifts and growth opportunities for the week. Instead of offering direct interpretations for you, I will instead offer you some guiding questions. You may want to reflect on these questions by writing in your journal, or perhaps speak the answers out loud. Whatever ways you choose to work with the questions, you will soon clearly understand the significance of the cards and what they mean for your life.

One important tip about card interpretation: Don’t rush it. Give yourself adequate space for this exploration. At least twenty minutes is needed, or possibly more. Turn off your phone; unhook from social media, play some soothing meditation music, and light a candle or burn some incense. Create a sacred space for yourself. This helps unwind the busy nervous system, so we can more easily tap into our intuition.

Indeed, our intuition works best when we are relaxed.

As you breathe and relax, just gently play with the questions. What are the cards saying? What are you saying? Remember that there are no right or wrong answers. Every answer that pops into your head is exactly the Divine Guidance that will help you on your path. Don’t overthink it; just let it flow.

Dear friends, it is so important for you to understand that you can do what I do. Reading cards is not some “special” gift exclusive to some. No! Reading cards and other intuitive arts are simply that: arts. They are creative endeavors, available to all. Yes, it does take a bit of time and effort to feel comfortable in any art—but once we make the commitment to begin our training and explore ourselves through our intuitive sight…then, the world begins to open up its grand magic as never before.

And now…without further adieu, here are your cards!

GIFTS:

Your gifts for this week are represented by the Thunderbolt (XVI of Major Arcana).photo_16 Major Arcana

Here are some questions to ponder…

What do fire and lightning have in common? Where is the fire located, and why? Where is the lightning striking, and why? Who is the large shaded figure in the background of the card? Is this figure floating or is she/he resting on the ground? How would you characterize the emotional state of the two naked figures who are falling? How do the colors in the card make you feel? How would you describe the movement, action, or story of the card?

As you discern the symbols in this card, remember that gifts are not often what they appear. Often, gifts can be shrouded in mystery and paradox.

How does the Thunderbolt speak to you today? What does it whisper about your week ahead?

GROWTH:

Your challenges of growth are seen in the Compromise card (6 of Rainbows).photo_rainbows 6

Here are some questions to ponder…

What emotions are brought up within you as you gaze at the card? What are the facial expressions of these two Japanese characters? Why are they touching pinkies? What kinds of clothing and objects are adorning their bodies? Would you want to share a cup of tea with these two men—why or why not? What are the colors of the card, and how do the colors relate to what they are doing? What situation or relationship in your life is represented by this card? What does it mean to compromise? What does it mean to agree? What is truth? How would you describe the movement, action, or story of this card?

How does the Compromise card speak to you in this moment? What truths is it trying to reveal and help you understand regarding your week ahead?

What challenges is the Compromise card attempting to forewarn you of?

In what ways will you meet those challenges? What intentions will you set?


 

Dearest friends,

I hope you’ve enjoyed interpreting your cards for this week.

Please know that I am available to you via Skype or phone for a private tutorial in how to read cards and strengthen your intuition. If you feel that little tingle of excitement as you read these words, then I encourage you to follow your heart and get in touch with me today!

Blessings & Eternal Radiant Light,

You have asked for healing, my friend, and you have found it.photo_water King

The Healing card (King of Water) is an expression of strength within vulnerability.

When we say to the Universe, “I need healing”…the Universe hears our request.

This week, you are being healed. Maybe this healing comes in the form of a good friend who calls you out of the blue. Or maybe you feel called to visit an energy healer. Or maybe you discover the perfect herbal remedy that is perfect for your condition.

Whatever the case may be, whether the healing needed is manifest physically or emotionally or mentally, your healing has come. Rest easy, my friend, in the knowledge that the Universe is delivering to you the healing that you have asked for.

GROWTH:

Trust yourself. The vibrations that are coming to you this week will help you on your path.photo_water Queen

In the Receptivity Card (Queen of Water), we are given the message that the frequencies which are wanting to filter through your crown chakra are safe to experience.

We all have a connection to the Universe, and yet there are layers and levels of connection that can be perceived.

Your connection level can be vastly increased this week, if you make the choice to let it be so.

The Queen of Water pairs perfectly with the previously discussed card, The King of Water, and shows us that we truly can let our guard down. We are safe. We can relax into ourselves and trust those around us who are ready to show us love, attention, and care.

The healing journey must include Receptivity.

The reason this card is coming up for you as a challenge for growth is that you have shown, in your past, some reluctance to trust the signals and messages the Universe has sent to you.

This is normal and natural, as our society does not tend to encourage such “psychic” knowings.

But all being “psychic” really is is simply knowing and feeling our divine connection to everything, to All.

The Receptivity card reminds us to trust, and to drop the shields that have been holding certain higher frequencies at bay. Perhaps we were raised in an orthodox religion, and so we are a bit jaded, cynical, or afraid to trust again in “unseen” forces. Or perhaps we were abused or neglected as children, and so we have built a thick wall of protection around us.

The time is now to gently release those defenses.

Allow the wisdom, love, and healing from the Universe to pour into your crown chakra—the place in your body where you can most palpably feel your connection to All.

Recommendation: This week, make some space in your life for some meditations each day. They need not be long: in fact, five minutes a day will be wonderful. Take five minutes in the morning or in the evening, and visualize that there is light pouring into the top of your head (crown chakra). You may begin to feel tingles or warmth, which is part of the awakening process. Feel these sensations and rest easy, knowing that you are receiving exactly what you need at this time.


 

My dear friends,

May you be blessed: in your triumphs, in your struggles, in your fears, and in your moments of bliss.

May you breathe and smile, knowing that all experiences are exactly what you need.

Sending you so much love.

If you found this reading insightful, I’d really appreciate it if you share it with your friends! Thanks so much!

Abundant Love & Blessings,

Anya ♥

I love this card—and I love you!photo_rainbows 10

I’m so thrilled to draw this card for you this week!

We are the World (10 of Rainbows) reveals feelings of joy, exuberance, and achievement. Feelings of prevailing peace and rightness.

All is good in the world.

This card is a celebration. It is a reflection of the fact that a sense of peace and fulfillment are currently radiating throughout your life. Yes, there may be certain goals that you are working towards, and certain things that have not yet come to fruition. However, this card indicates that you have indeed reached a major milestone in your journey.

The various colors of the people in this card represent the spectrum of human emotions that you have felt throughout your life. And wow—there have been so many! So many shades of happiness, peace, frustration, depression, worry, faith, hope, fear, sadness, confusion, bliss, and so much more.

Now, all the parts of you come together, holding hands, singing songs of gratitude.

Truly, this week your gift is a recognition of how you have worked so hard to embrace all the parts of you: the beautiful, the strange, and even the parts of you that you or society have labelled as “ugly.”

You have made such amazing strides!

This week, take time to notice how much self-love you are capable of cultivating now, in this present time in your life. Notice how you are less divided and less judgmental of yourself for feeling the various feelings you feel.

Being human is an extraordinary gift of feeling! We are not meant to be robots. On our spiritual journey, the dissolution of the ego is not about becoming neutral all the time. Rather, being a human being is about dancing and playing and adventuring into the feelings that we came here to experience. Good ones, bad ones, happy ones, and all the ones in between. (In truth, there are no “bad” ones, but that’s a subject for another time…)

You chose to come into this lifetime. You made the choice, because you knew that being human would be a wonderful. You also knew that, at times, it would feel like a crazy roller coaster. And yet you chose to come anyway. You wanted this.

This week, take the time to say some words of thanks to yourself, for you have reached a pivotal moment of fulfillment and accomplishment. Spirit wants you to know this.

 

GROWTH:

I truly love this week, because I’ve drawn two of my favorite cards.photo_1 Major Arcana

In the Existence Card (I of Major Arcana), a naked figure sits atop a lily pad, apparently enraptured by the scene that plays out before her. In the sky: a shooting star and luminous galaxies spin and swirl.

This card is about the transitionary time period between being at One with the Universe before birth and the moment directly after birth.

This card reminds me of a newborn baby, when they gaze up at lights and giggle and smile at seemingly everything. It is a feeling of innocence and wonder. Awe.

Your growth for this week is to cultivate this feeling further.

Here’s an exercise to try: For one entire day, try to imagine that you are an alien and you have just been deposited from your ship onto planet Earth. You look around you in amazement: There are beings walking around, speaking a language you don’t know, and there are colors and shapes and objects which are totally new to your eyes. So, you simply observe. You simply take it all in, with each breath.

This is the mindset that Spirit is encouraging you to cultivate this week. Look at the world as a newborn does. See the world as new, as shining, as the miraculous wonderment that it truly is.

So often in our daily lives, we begin to get a feeling of boredom. We feel like we’ve seen it all and there’s nothing new under the sun. And, yet…if we make the intentional choice to cultivate a sense of wonder about our existence, then we can recapture that feeling we had when we were young…that timeless, floating feeling, where we can taste the magic in every star, hear the mystery in every word.

Blessed be, my friends.


 

As always, my friends, if you’d like a private reading with me, please get in touch.

Thank you so much for being the miraculous being that you are, and thank you for providing me the space in which to share my work. I love this work.

Have an awesome week!

Love,

Anya

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.


 

Dear ones,

Thank you so much for joining me on these weekly Tarot adventures!

If you’ve found these readings beneficial in your life, I humbly ask you to support my work. As you know, I have devoted my life to the uplift of humanity. As such, I have chosen not to work a typical 9-5 job, so that my entire creative energies are able to pour into the gifts that I so deeply want to share with you.

Each day, I gratefully receive the support of generous friends like you, and, in turn, send those blessings back out into the world. It’s a never-ending cycle of love and abundance.

Can you feel it?

Would you be willing to share the cost of a cup of coffee ($2) with me today?

Thanks so much for heeding the call, and sharing your abundance with me, as we work toward the more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible.

How to Get a Good Psychic Reading

new-brighton-1239724_960_720

During my nearly five years working as a psychic medium and tarot reader, I’ve come across clients from virtually every background—from Baptists to Catholics, Muslims to atheists, and many more.

Despite differences in color, creed, or deities, one commonality remains amongst all individuals who sit at my table. Life is hard, and we as humans want answers when things happen that we can’t understand.

If you are like so many others who are seeking answers, and want a fantastic psychic reading, check out these tips to help you get the most out of your reading.

 

1.  Getting the reading you want begins before you ever sit down in front of a reader.

Take the time to really consider why you are seeking advice. Are you unsure about the possibility of a career change? Would you like to find out what the cards say about an impending move? A new relationship? These are all great reasons for seeking a reading.

Some not-so-great reasons for seeking a reading is to want to be given the winning lottery numbers or to know which stocks are going to increase in value. Simply put: Readers won’t give you that kind of information because they desire to use their abilities for deeper purposes for your soul’s evolution and the flowering of your life purpose.

If your first instinct is to ask about winning lottery numbers, take some time to reflect on why you want to win the lottery. Are you feeling financially insecure? If so, I encourage you to create a question to ask your reader, such as, “How can I manifest more financial abundance?”

 

2.  Decide what type of reading you need.

Typically, a tarot reading is one in which the reader can discuss many areas of life from career and health, to home and family. Tarot cards are used as a tool to enable the client and reader to visually see the story of the reading unfold. If it is future, past, or present information you seek, then a tarot reading may be just what you need. Other types of readings exist, too, such as: angel oracle cards, astrology, crystal ball, and many, many more. Do your research.

 

3.  Remember that your reader is not a therapist.

Psychologists and therapists have fancy letters behind their name and many years of professional training to know how to deal with the human mind in all its beautifully complex workings. While ideally you want a well-rounded reader who can speak on a broad number of topics and has legitimate experience, they will never be a therapist.

Therefore, resist the urge to spill all your worldly problems on to the reader; instead, allow the reader to tell you what he or she is seeing. By doing so, you are giving the reading the space to unfold naturally. When we knowingly or unknowingly give information to a reader, it can cause perceptions to change and a greater possibility for judgment or even a cold reading to occur. (A cold reading is one in which the reader uses previously-gleaned information to assist with the reading rather than using the cards and their psychic abilities.)

 

4.  Ask questions when appropriate.

When I read, I like to start with as little information as possible. It ensures me that I am going in free from judgment, preconceived notions, and biases, while maintaining professional integrity.

I encourage my clients to pick one area to focus on first, such as home, money, health, career, etc. When one area is finished, I move on to another area unless my client has questions. Whether you are new to readings or not, I encourage you as a client to really listen and let your reading experience unfold as it will.

Questions are great, yes, but what I love even more is when a client is paying attention. When you really listen to a reading, then the questions you have can be asked when appropriate, not simply when there is a moment of silence.

 

5.  Take notes.

From college lectures to the board room, people everywhere jot down important information. Why should it be any different during your reading? In my personal experience, I love when clients write notes while I read. Firstly, it forces me to slow down and just take one card at a time (I can’t talk a million miles an hour and expect my client to write it all down). Secondly, notes help the client to really see what is important in the reading.

As a client, you may wish to discuss your most recent break-up; yet, as your reading progresses, and you are taking notes, you may see that the cards are moving in an entirely different direction. Having a tangible set of notes in front of you may also illuminate patterns in the cards or even in how things are happening in life.

Last but certainly not least, taking notes helps the client to remember what was said during the reading. When excitement runs high we often forget what was said or neglect to ask an important question.

 

…So, where do you go from here? Go and get a reading of course! Enjoy!

If this article has sparked any questions for you, please leave me a comment! I’d love to hear from you!

The ordinary is beautiful.WP_20170624_001

As you may remember, this card (8 of Rainbows) came up for you back in early July, also. Having this card come up again so quickly indicates that this is a theme for you to ponder and learn from, in this season of your life.

So, what is ordinariness?

Our fast-paced mainstream culture of glitz and glamour despises the ordinary. We have been taught since childhood that what counts are diamonds, wallets stuffed with green, Hollywood flashbulbs, and resumes full of fancy diplomas. …yet, in reality, what matters to a happy life is whether we feel self-love and peace in the most ordinary of moments.

This week, as you are taking a shower, really revel in how good it feels to take a shower: to smooth the soap on your body and sing a few tunes.

This week, as you are driving in your car or riding your bicycle, feel how good that feels. Feel the curves of the road in your spine, and look ahead to view the passing birds. Fly with the birds.

This week, as you are putting your hands into the dirt of your garden, observe your breath and feel the kinship with the beetles and worms. Feel the peace that flows from Nature into you.

Make it your aim to feel the splendid and glorious ordinariness this week—and celebrate it! Treasure these “small” moments that make up your life. Claim them as your gift.

You don’t need to go to Hollywood or New York City to be a success. You don’t need to be a millionaire to be abundant.

Everything you need is right here. In this moment.

This week presents a very lovely learning challenge, as indicated by the Abundance Card (King of Rainbows).photo_ rainbows King

The figure in this card enjoys a union of opposites: he holds a pink lotus, representing the grace and beauty of the feminine. He also has an exposed hairy chest, representing the strength of his masculinity. He sits atop the book of life, drawing from its secrets, regardless of societal conventions and stereotypes. He is a perfect blend of masculine and feminine. He is his own soulmate. He has no need to search outside himself for completion: because both energies, masculine and feminine, are found within.

This week, your challenge for growth is this: Can you stretch yourself outside your normal comfort zones, and bring your masculine and feminine energies more into balance?

For those of you who identify as male, be aware this week of all the ways you can bring more feminine energies into your life. Break through stereotypical, standard societal ideas about what it means to be a man, and intentionally cultivate feminine aspects within you: such as intuition, free-flowing emotions, patience, faith, ease, grace, softness, and slowness. Bring more yin into your beautiful yang. Balance yourself as a human be-ing, and feel the fullness of all that you can be.

If you identify as a female, this week look for the ways in which you can channel more masculine energies into your daily life. The energies of the masculine are the energies of focus, intensity, power, strength, speed, and logical thought. These can be good energies when consciously chosen and embodied in balance with all the feminine aspects of you. Bring more yang into your beautiful yin. Balance yourself as a human be-ing, and feel the fullness of all that you can be.

Everything you need is right here. Within you.


 

Hope you enjoyed the reading, loves!

As I post this today (Monday), I am gearing up for an afternoon of meditation during the solar eclipse. Wow! These Lions Gate energies have been really intense. If you feel tired, super emotional, or generally off-kilter today and during the next few days, be gentle with yourself. This time is not the time for hard work or pushing yourself. Take it easy. Drink lots of water. Remember to breathe and meditate and if you feel up to it, some gentle yoga or walking out in Nature is recommended.

Sending love to you.

As always, if you’d like to meet with me for a private reading, please do get in touch! I’d love to be with you. I offer readings via phone & Skype.

Hugs, and So Much Love!

Tarot for the Soul ~ week of August 14-20, 2017

pin for aug 14

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.

This week, embrace the wisdom of flowers.photo_water Queen

In the Receptivity Card (Queen of Water), notice how a lotus encircles the woman’s head. Her head is completely enveloped in the flower. She is one with the flower, she functions as a flower: energy is flowing into her (from the stars), and energy is flowing out of her (into the Earth), as one seamless flowing motion. Everything is in tune. Everything is smooth and perfect.

If you gaze at this card long enough, you begin to get a sense that this woman is functioning no longer from a place of mind, no longer from a place of logic and rational analysis, but, rather, from a place of feeling and intuition. She has evolved. She has combined her incredible powers of Human Being with the wisdom of the plant world, the wisdom of the flowers.

This week, your gift is the wisdom of the flowers: simplicity, instinct, intuition—a deep sense of connection with the Universe. Beauty.

In some ways, we could say that flowers and plants are more in tune with the Universe than we human beings are—because they don’t cloud their existence with worries. They simply gather the sun, drink the nutrients from the soil, breathe, and be. They are effortless. They know they will be provided for, and so their undivided energy is devoted to simply being. They are.

We love looking at plants and being out in Nature because they remind us that life really is simple.

This week, you will be able to access the flows of intuition more easily. You will be more receptive to the ease and bliss of the Universal forces flowing through you. Open your ears—it will be easy. Open your heart—it will be easy. Open your mind—it will be easy.

This week, you are graced with an enhanced sense of receptivity. You will know as the flowers know, be as the flowers be. This is your gift this week.

Recommendation: Each morning this week, first thing when you wake up, sit quietly with your spine straight, palms facing up, and say aloud: “I am open and receptive to the wisdom of the Universe. I am open. I am receptive. I am a flower, being fed by the stars.”

GROWTH:

This week, it’s important to recognize that both cards are water cards.

In Tarot, water cards symbolize emotions and intuition. The water element is the aspect of Divine Feminine that is heart-based and feelings-based. photo_water 7

In the Projections Card (7 of Water), we see a man and a woman looking at each other. Yet they are not really truly looking: what they are seeing, instead, is an illusion. They see false, distorted images.

Why?

When we gaze at the other, the other becomes our mirror. The Universe is made of many beings so that we have many opportunities to learn and explore what is within. We have these amazing (and sometimes crazy!) relationships with others—seemingly outside our own bodies—in order to feel more deeply what is within.

It’s a paradox.

In the ultimate view of the Universe, no one and nothing is separate. We are all interconnected strands of one energy. And, yet, as we manifest into bodies, we seem to be separate. That is the whole game of it! The game is to have these things called relationships: to interact with others so that we may reveal hidden truths within ourselves.

We want to connect so we can feel connected. We want to relate so we can feel relatable.

The spiritual journey is finding balance between the outward adventures (relationships) and the inward adventures, such as meditation, Reiki, yoga, and other healing arts, where we learn to go within our own heartspace to learn what our own energy feels like, to learn what our own auric field feels like. We feel the muscles in our legs and we feel the way it feels to breathe using the lungs inside our own particular chest. We learn what it is to be “me.”

As we devote more and more time to inner exploration, to meditation of various kinds, we can engage more wholly and honestly in relationship with others. This week, remember this delicate balance. That is your challenge. Are you spending enough time alone? Are you noticing and honoring your feelings? Are you giving yourself enough time in your day for quiet reflection? Are you meditating? Are you walking outside in Nature? Are you caring for your physical body—giving yourself the proper nutrition, sleep, and exercise? Are you feeding yourself positive, uplifting affirmations? Are you hugging yourself and touching your own body with love?

This week, you are invited to see the opportunity to bring more emotional balance into your life. Through more balance between inner exploration and outer relationships, you reduce the tendency to mentally project your own desires, expectations, and judgments upon others. You learn to, instead, intuitively feel and sense people and situations as they truly are. You learn to feel with an open heart.

There is a point of light in the heart. Feel this through the Harmony Card (10 of Water).photo_water 10

For it is within the heart that all light, all love, all wisdom emerges. For it is from within the heart that the cool, calm waters of harmony manifest.

As we dissolve into the peace of these waters, beautiful creations (as represented by dolphins on this card) are born. We bring forward our true spirit, which manifests as lovely works of art.

We are all artists.

I once met a man on a university campus. We shook hands and looked into each other’s eyes. When I inquired what sort of work he did, he told me, with pride and joy in his smile: “I fix elevators. I am responsible for all the elevators on campus. This is my great passion, my life’s work. I am an artist of elevators.”

This week, notice how you are able to accomplish your own artistic creations, your own stunning works of art, in a more fluid, relaxed fashion. Notice how you are learning to trust the Universe. Notice how there is a spaciousness and an ease in which you do your work. This is because your creation is truly coming from the light in your heart.

Indeed, the light begins in your heart, and then flows up to fill your third eye, your chakra of intuition, and the beauty that manifests is perfectly balanced and harmonious. It is a gift to the world.

 

GROWTH:

I find it lovely that this week both cards are focused on points of light. In the previous Harmony Card, we see two points of light: one in the heart, and one in the third eye chakra. Here on the Totality Card (5 of Fire), we see a point of light encircling the hands of the beautiful ones who are ready to connect.photo_fire 5

Your growth for this week is about cultivating the courage to let go and trust others. There is someone(s) in your life lately who has been reaching out a hand to you—are you brave enough to let go of the past and your old expectations and, rather, clasp hands with this new version of yourself as represented by the one trying to help you?

We are all One. At a certain level, there is no such thing as anyone trying to attack you or hurt you, because each experience is manifested from a Universe that wants Love to prevail.

Each painful situation is only Love in disguise, helping us wake up.

Similarly, each person in our life who extends a helping hand is, really, the Universe dressed up in fabulous disguise. That person is really you.

If we can learn to let go, as the trapeze artists do, and soar through the air, perfectly in tune with each moment, trusting that the other person (the Universe) has “got our back,” then we can harness the joyful fires of passion in our lives. We can be present, fully aware, and enjoying all the amazing adventures that life has to offer!


 

Dear friends,

It is my pleasure to bring you the wisdom that channels through me each week. Truly, it does not come from “me” (not from the mind)…it comes from beyond. I am simply a humble conduit.

Thanks for being here.

Week of July 31, 2017

july 31 week

 

GIFTS:

This week, the Fighting Card (Knight of Clouds) is reversed in meaning.photo_clouds Knight

In other words, this week will be a week of peace.

If you look at the figure in this card, there are three predominant colors: black, white, and red. His eyes and his “trigger” buttons located on his armor are all red, indicating fire, rage, and intensity. Yet, the rest of the image is black and white. This is because when we are in fighting mode, the world seems black and white to us—right and wrong, good and bad, yes and no.

This week, my dear friend, you will be gifted with the opposite meaning of how this card is traditionally read.

This week, you will be gifted with a range of relaxed, flexible seeing. You will not be tense like in the figure on the card, but rather you will be loose, and you will be able to see a variety of colors of our beautiful world. People and situations will not be black and white; rather, you will see things as they truly are: as beautiful, nuanced, and full. What a gift!

This week, those people who usually trigger anger will come into your field and your reaction will be one of peace, calm, and love. You will be able to see past your own ego’s need to maintain authority or a sense of rightness, and you will, rather, relax into the depths of friendship with the Universe. You will surrender to the perfection of each moment, and you will be able to feel another layer of your ego release.

Therefore, the character on this card depicts the phase that you are moving beyond. Indeed, you are—more and more with every passing day—at peace with life, at peace with yourself. You see all the exquisite beauty. You recognize that the only way to be happy is to stop the fighting.

GROWTH:

Your area for growth and change this week is represented by the Comparison Card (5 of Clouds).comparison card

This week is a great time to shed some of the old conditioning that asks you to compare yourself to others. It’s a great time to stop the madness!

Truly, one of the surest and quickest ways to depression, anxiety, and negative emotions is the act of comparison! When we compare, we make false judgements based in the ego. We say to the apple, “Why aren’t you more like a pear?” And we say to the pear, “Why the heck can’t you be more like that apple?”

Truly, comparisons are madness, a disease of the human mind.

All of us humans live in a society that is based on comparisons, on competition, and on warring with each other. So, it’s no wonder we all have some healing work to do!

This week, the challenge is to notice the moments when you are comparing yourself to someone else: either looking for ways that you are supposedly superior, or looking for ways that someone else is supposedly better than you. In the first scenario, your ego is looking for a boost by demeaning someone else. In the second, your ego is simply looking to maintain itself—and having an inferiority complex works quite well for keeping the ego intact! (“Woe is me” is a wonderful way to maintain a “me” focus.) Indeed, both types of comparison only bring suffering, because they are rooted firmly in the ego.

When we intentionally take steps in our lives to move out of the ego, we see our Divine connection to all beings, and we can appreciate the beautiful and unique ways that all of us contribute to the grand story of life. We move beyond judgment and we move into acceptance. We move into gratitude.

This week, each time you notice a comparison coming up in your mind, simply notice it, and then turn it into a moment of gratitude. Ask yourself: “What am I grateful for in this moment? What is wonderful about this moment? How is this person a gift in my life? How is this person uniquely contributing to the Universe? How am I uniquely contributing to the Universe?”

It’s going to be okay. The disease of comparison is not a fatal disease. It is one that can be healed. Simply set your intention, and then feel the healing happen.
