High Priestess Reversed: Seeing What You’re Looking For

Out of perfection nothing can be made. Every process involves breaking something up.  Joseph Campbell

The concept of perfection being born of imperfection has been on my radar. It’s been a tremendously freeing perspective to adopt. I don’t have to see anything as merely “bad” anymore. I can see difficult situations as all having some sort of gift hidden somewhere inside. I really like looking at the world that way.

We tend to lament all that’s screwed up, either in our lives or the world at large. I’ve done plenty myself! But the simple truth is the same no matter what: the undesirable is an undeniable component to personal and societal evolution. Difficulties inspire changes. Imperfection is an irreplaceable catalyst for growth. The bigger the imperfection, the stronger the force for change.

It’s not always pretty by a long shot. But there is always something good to be found with a little practice, if that’s specifically what you’re seeking.

That’s one of the reasons I’ve put myself on a self-criticism diet. I do the best I can, always. If I notice somewhere I could do better, of course I do going forward! But I don’t fault myself in the process. Instead, I appreciate the fact I am growing. Growing is a good thing.

I’ve decided that doing the best I can is enough. Always.

It’s not about the outcomes. Sure, I care about outcomes. But outcomes have many moving parts, most of which I cannot directly control. For me, it’s about consistently coming from a place of positive intention, with a steadfast commitment to doing my best–these factors are always within my control.

It’s an easy way of being kind to myself. And I’ve found my life flows much smoother when I’m kind to myself. Everything is easier.

Since I’ve consciously made this decision, I’ve noticed an unexpected side effect: I can more easily slip into the same perspective for rest of the world, too. Looking for the best in me makes it easier to see the best in others, too. It feels good and it allows me to support people wherever they are at without having to divide all into categories of acceptable or not. I can make it my job to take care of me, and trust the rest of the world to sort themselves out.

I have yet to find a downside to this approach. But then again, I’m not really looking.

High Priestess Reversed: Seeing What You're Looking For 1

We’ve got the High Priestess reversed this week from the Cosmic Tarot, along with Peony (Prosperity & Compassion) from the Botanical Inspirations deck. This combination speaks to me about what we’re tuning in, versus what we’re tuning out. Are you seeking what’s wrong or what’s right?

Goodness of any sort is not a conditional outcomes; it’s a state of mind, more about feelings than events. And a state of mind begets more of the same. Anger predisposes you to more anger, and sadness to more sadness. Likewise, joy predisposes you to more joy, and appreciation to more appreciation. You feel prosperous acknowledging the prosperity you’ve already attained, which paves the way for more. And that’s a really nice way to live.

This week, look for the good. Start in the mirror and you’ll soon find, you’ll be doing the same looking out the window as well. Make a little time each day to appreciate the flowers and enjoy the fruit that’s in season, either literally or metaphorically. You’ll soon see just what I mean.

If you want a personal consult to help you adjust your own attitude, give me a holler. And be well!

Ill-informed Urges: Weekly Tarot, April 24-30, 2017

You ever get that itch, to DO something, deal with something right-this-very-second–not so much because you think the issue is ripe for the undertaking, but more because you just want it d-o-n-e-done? That? I call it “crisis mode” and I became well acquainted with the state during custody hearings years ago and many times since, as a parent. Because parenting can be hard.

But really, that urge to “get this shit over with” never really did much helpful that I can tell. Faith goes further.

This week, I’d suggest you soothe yourself and do as little as possible to get immediate relief and nothing beyond that, if you are feeling that way.

Ill-informed Urges: Weekly Tarot, April 24-30, 2017 2

Plenty of Swords in the coming week’s forecast–some worry and clouded presentations to be anticipated. Information isn’t complete or clear cut and the urge to act anyway grows. I’d say don’t do anything drastic, though, because it seems likely it WILL NOT turn out as intended. Force won’t work. Just little seeds you can plant (Ace of Pentacles), some of which may grow up nicely. Mmm’kay?

Video Transcript

Hi. This is Dixie from A Fool’s Journey. I am here to do your Tarot forecast for April 24th through 30th, 2017.

Okay. Let’s see what we got here. Boom, boom, boom. I’ve got the Gilded Tarot deck. It’s a pretty deck. I love this deck.

Oh goodness. Swords, swords, cups…ah.

The first thing that comes to mind when looking at this, is…sigh. A lot of questionable words going around, and people who think they know what’s going on, but they don’t necessarily know. The truth.

We’ve got King of Swords, Nine of Swords, and Seven of Cups reversed to start. So going into the week there’s a sense of, maybe you were sort of clear on it to begin with, but then you start worrying about it and the guilt sets in.

And there are all these other inputs. Or sources of information that’s just kind of mucking things up. So eh. Be aware of that.

Okay? Moving in, going through the week, I’m seeing this, Seven of Swords reversed, Three of Swords reversed, as a tendency to want to hide what you find, what you think others will find unacceptable.

And not only what you think, but what you feel like. Like somebody, you know, lying to their boyfriend or girlfriend or whatever. Or hiding an expenditure from their spouse. It has that kind of feel to it to me.

And the worry being that there’s not gonna be love or acceptance. That really doesn’t feel very good. We end the week with action, although I don’t know necessarily that it’s inspired action. Because it’s the High Priestess reversed. So the outcome of this is something does happen, but I’m not sure if it’s what we want to happen.

But…to clarify it, I pulled a secondary card on that and I got Ace of Pentacles. So in this, do, do the least that you can.

We’ve got a lot of planets retrograde. It’s kind of a murky, mucky time. So do, do what relieves a little bit of the pressure, but don’t, like, “Okay. This has to be a grand gesture, this is gonna fix everything that’s ever been wrong!” ‘Cause how often does that crap work, anyway? You know?

But in this case, little bit, little bit, little bit, okay? And then for the outcome/advice, I have got Justice reversed. Um, don’t try to force what you consider to be fair, because that will throw you off balance.

Your balance, your happiness, your peace of mind, you comfort level in your own head and in your own life and in your own little circle is THE MOST important thing! That’s your job. It’s not your job to fix your kids or your spouse or your coworkers or your neighbors or your Facebook friends. It’s your job to take care of you! Do what you need to do to do that; let everybody else do their own jobs.

Okay? That’s my forecast for you. I hope it’s helpful. Let me know how your week went. Does this help? Does this, kinda, help keep you in the zone? Let me know.

Take care, peace out from Dix the Zen Goddess. Ommmmmm! Bye-bye.


This week’s forecast features the Gilded Tarot. Get a 1-on-1 with Dixie here.

 

Benefit of the Doubt: Tarot Forecast, Dec 12 – 18, 2016

My kids give me shit about my age sometimes, but truth is I don’t really care how old I am. Not that I’m going to admit that. I will tell them to shut up anyway. But in truth, I like where I am, and look to always like where I am.

Isn’t that the mark of a happy person?

Being at peace with wherever you are. Liking yourself. Knowing your life is your own and it’s worked from the inside-out. How you focus determines your experience.

Energetic weather in the wild is kinda wonky right now. At least, the way I’m feeling it. Intense, fast-moving. Ups are way high and the lows are way low and they both are shifting poles pretty rapidly. So it’s good to have some coping skills on hand.

Finding and holding your center will do you a world of good under these conditions (or any, really). What we’re shooting for here is an inner knowing that it’s okay, a sense of realizing who you are and who you want to be and that nothing can rock your peace. Your calm. Your happiness and sense of who you are.

Easier said than done? Sometimes. But it becomes easier and easier to maintain this stance, the more you practice it.

Practice when it’s easy and when conditions become less than optimal, it will be your default setting. Look for ways to feel good, as much as you can. Appreciate whatever you can. Live as happy as you can. And don’t bother with what anybody else is living. You cannot vibrate for another and you cannot force them to your perspective.

But you can look to keep your perspective as pliable and possible. You can do your best to make peace with your now, being true to who you really are. You can stay centered in your respect for yourself. Everything else will form around that core if you keep steady to that energy.

Benefit of the Doubt: Tarot Forecast, Dec 12 - 18, 2016 3

There’s a joke, where I live. “Don’t like the weather in Kansas? Wait five minutes, it will change.”

I didn’t say it was a funny joke.

But next week? It is a lot like that.

The good news in that is that whatever is utterly under your skin on one day? Probably be a non-issue within 24 hours. It’s a quick-change week, so don’t get too wrapped up in any sort of drama because it will be short-lived. That’s something to work with, huh? So let’s hit the day-by-day play-by-play.

Monday, Death: Might be a tough day. Sorry! Could even be an ugly or upsetting event in the news. In a short-term forecast, the “weightier” cards like Death don’t have the same implications as other, longer term readings, though, so no need to get overly wrought up. But do understand the day may have some heavy or difficult energy, nonetheless. It is what it is, but don’t worry about it much because why? Look at tomorrow.

Tuesday, The Sun: Pretty much the exact opposite emotional tone from yesterday. Yay! It’s a great time for fun activities. Look for things to appreciate and feel joyful, and make the most of these kind of days when you get them. Enjoy! Because that’s why we’re here.

Wednesday, Knight of Wands rx: Progress is happening, even if you feel impatient about it. I’m seeing someone tap, tap, tapping their foot. But do know we’re moving forward and call upon your patience mojo. It’s totally warranted.

Thursday, Queen of Wands: Perfect follow-up to yesterday. See? Here’s evidence of the progress we’re making. Enjoy the progress. It’s a good creative day, with lots of room for joy.

Friday, High Priestess: Action? Not so much. Turn inward, get grounded and have quiet, reflective time. Meditation is super-charged. Intuition is right on. Passive, receptive trust in your knowing. And know everything is okay.

Saturday, Hanged Man rx: Antsy feeling, like a drive to do something, do something, do something. The picture folks have conjured is not entirely clear. Postpone action a bit and work on your faith. Get your mindset CLEAR, before you take action. If you don’t have the faith in place, don’t make the phone call, write the letter or whatever. Faith comes first and don’t move on anythign until you got it.

Sunday, Eight of Cups rx: Want to toss up your hands to walk away? You’re not quite ready. The situation isn’t there, all the facts are not out, etc. Just trust! Keep working on the faith. We’re getting there…

Overview/Advice, Two of Wands: Pointing towards a couple of things. Standing your ground, being firm and convinced in what’s right for you and settling in for that. Not activism or convincing others, but for YOU. The second element that’s highlighted here is paitence. It’s a longer term energy, the long game for this coming week. There are ups and down, but breathe deeply, take your time, and let it unfold at it’s own pace. MAKE PEACE with where you are. Rushing won’t get you away from what you’re unhappy with…get where you want emotionally first, and the outer circumstances morph accordingly.

Affirmation: “I am developing the skill to direct my thoughts.” You may not realize how much impact this has. We’re not truly responding to what’s happening outside ourselves. It’s what’s happening in our heads! You can have the exact same experience, but whether it’s Heaven or Hell is determined by what you’re thinking about it.

Any new circumstance you’re exploring, do an emotional temperature check. See how you’re feeling about it. If you’re feeling uneasy, uncomfortable for any reason, look to shift your thoughts. If you do this early on before you get a lot of momentum, it’s much easier to shift. If you can shift up the emotional tone of the situation, you completely shift your experience. This changes the outcome. A lot of what is good or bad in your experience, as in pretty much ALL of it, is a function of how you think about it, which determines how you feel about it. This week, practice checking in on your feelings and ask, “Is there a way I could think about this that would feel a little better?” Don’t worry if that something you could think would be considered “true” as some kind of objective reality. Just look at ways to frame it to feel better and choose that.

[bctt tweet=”The benefit of a doubt is really a gift for yourself. #OnMyRadar” via=”no”]

We talk about giving someone else the “benefit of the doubt” as if it’s really about the other person, a gift of some sort. It’s not. But it’s definitely a gift. See, regardless of the situation and regardless of how convinced you are that it’s likely one way or another, you can still assume it’s coming from a malicious, ugly place (and maybe it is), or you can assume no ill-intention as default (and maybe that’s true, too). Even if it’s coming from an ugly place, getting upset about it doesn’t help you and your experience. If you assume even the ugly is not about you because it never is–even if the other person thinks it is, it’s still about how they look at the world–then you’ll have a much happier life.

Personally? I think that’s a very awesome gift!

Are you free with your benefit of a doubt?

Who Cares about the Brussel sprouts? Tarot Forecast, Dec. 5 – 11

When my kids were little, they did the same thing all kids do: they looked at ugly veggies like brussel sprouts and declared them disgusting.

I had already firmly established I wasn’t going to make multiple, separate meals for dinner. Frankly, they were lucky I came up with one! But it still was an issue for me getting some veggies down their little gullets, taking my parental responsibilities for their well-being quite seriously as young mothers often do.

“Okay, that’s fine if you don’t like something. As an adult, I don’t force myself to eat things I don’t like. But I expect you to try it before declaring it disgusting.”

See, the “I fixed it just how you like it, with salt and pepper and butter!” had stopped working. So I made a rule, there must be a full bite taken, chewed and swallowed before determining whether or not something was “disgusting” and before being excused from the table

You see where this is going?

Worst rule I ever conjured. It gave me a lot more grief with the boy child than just letting him turn his nose up the the green spheres and be done with it.

Instead, we had a battle of wills. Over brussel sprouts. Who would give in first?

Honestly, I don’t remember who is was that folded. I just remember an extracted battle that felt lousy and completely missed the point of encouraging him to try something new in an open, accepting atmosphere.

This week? It’s kind of like that. You can insist on things that are not really that important (as both of us were doggedly doing in my story). Or you can look at the bigger picture and only insist on what matters. Because most of it doesn’t.

20161203_213207_hdr

Overall, the week is not looking too bad! Basically any setbacks this week look minor and as long as you keep in mind what matters most and dismiss the rest, they are not gonna throw you. Lots of opportunities for replenishing and if you take them, it’s smooth sailing. So go forth and have an awesome week.

Monday, Nine of Cups rx: Generally, I read this card as “almost perfect.” You can find complaints if you look, but why look? There is a lot to enjoy if you’re not a whiner. So don’t be a whiner!

Tuesday, Empress: Awesome day! Creative day, as this is the Tarot Mama. Good day to give birth to something new, or self care is good. Anything you do under the Empresses influence to heal or build yourself up, it tends to be especially effective. Good day.

Wednesday, The Lovers: Expect harmony. Usually with the Lovers, there is choice involved as when the man chooses to be with the wife and leave home, for example. We’re generally looking at fortuitous, comfortable. Will have the option to get your vibe on with people of like mind, so enjoy!

Thursday, Nine of Wands rx: A little different than what we’ve had up to this point. Usually, I’ll see this when someone is tired of holding out. Would not focus a whole bunch on getting your individual way. Shift focus to the bigger picture, what is really important. Forget specifics, but look to principles to get the most here.

Friday, Seven of Wands: Echoing same theme as yesterday. Look at core values, not little details. If it’s not important, let it the heck go!

Saturday, High Priestess: Great time to make time for quiet, contemplative events. Time outside if it’s not too cold, meditation, music, etc. Intuition is in high gear. It’s access through quiet activity, creative stuff, exercising your imagination, dreamwork, etc. Know your radar is in high gear, even if you’re not overly energetic. Not a super active vibe, but very receptive.

Sunday, Queen of Pents rx: Take care of yourself FIRST, before extending hospitality to others. If you don’t, you’ll run out of gas before it’s done.

Overview/Advice: Ten of Pentacles rx. Still a nice vibe even reversed. Stronger upright but still a good vibe. Know this week’s setbacks are minor and you can easily work your way around it if you choose. Keep the good attitude and it will go well. In fact, issues that come up can be helpful in terms of providing useful info anywho. Freaking out, it goes downhill, so keep the good attitude. Do what you can to roll with the flow and don’t get worked up.

Affirmation: As I say yes to life, life says yes to me. Take a chance! Do what you really want to do. For me this conjures up the idea, so many times when we’re looking at why we want something, we actually think in terms of what they don’t want, not what they do. It may seem like the same thing saying you don’t want to be sick vs. you want to be healthy, but it’s a lot different vibration. It’s not as subtle difference as you’d think. There is a big difference between pushing against vs. pulling for, although both bring more into your life.

 

Do you pick your battles? Or does it depend on your mood?

Easy Does It: Tarot Forecast, Sept 5 – 11, 2016

I’ve been nurturing a new practice of late, looking to lift my personal vibration. Tuning and turning up my connection, you know? Becoming more sure-footed in knowing and consciously, deliberately guiding my emotional state rather than leaving it up to the whims of whatever conditions I’m observing. Fostering a less conditional, more internal brand of happy. Intentionally setting my tone and looking for confirmation of it. As you expect and look for confirmation, it turns it up.

If you do this for a while, you’ll notice things. You’ll begin to see the output of your vibration in what shows up in your life and how smoothly things work out. Not everything shows up in the form you’d want–but “problems” become far less problematic and more just part of the road. Less emergency, more Universa- GPS reroute. More faith and more knowing, it IS all alright, always.

We’re all always on the path but sometimes? The Universe provides us a shortcut through some muck. But it doesn’t mean we’re not still traveling.

Hold in your mind the image of a feather, slowly drifting to and fro from the sky. The feather floats this way and that, based on how the breeze is blowing. If you want that feather, you can either watch and lightly wait for it to land. Or you can try to chase it down coming in like gangbusters–the faster you run and grasp, the more likely all that motion is going to cause that feather to float the other way and maybe elude you.

EASY does it. Watch the feathers come down softly and then go over and pick it right up. That’s how you handle this week.

20160904_122945_HDR

As you might expect in eclipse season during a Mercury retrograde period, there’s a clear sense here of rethinking and reviewing a whole lot. I’d advise a slower pace this week, building in plenty of time to recoup and relax into the flow. This will net much better results than acting out frustrated impulses.

[bctt tweet=”Take action in the EMOTIONAL state you want to carry through outcome #LOA #OnMyRadar” via=”no”]

Monday, Two of Swords: Take your time as you move forward today, and don’t speak or act on a decision until you have a clear, emotional indication of which route to go. Meaning, make the choice that gives you the most positive emotion as you’re mulling it over. The energy you bring into the decision will carry through to the results.

Tuesday, Six of Pentacles: This is a great time for generosity–even (especially) the kind that doesn’t require you cracking open your wallet. Give freely of good intention, benefits of the doubt for all, assuming the best, and taking nothing but love “personally.” This advice works best when applied from the inside first, going out. Start in the mirror and then share, share, share the good will.

Wednesday, Six of Swords: Possibly tired and a bit worn down, we’re still getting where we’ve intended to go.  You job is to just keep doing what you’re doing and take good care of yourself in the process. Anything that makes you laugh is particularly potent medicine right now.

Thursday, Justice Rx: Be aware the inclination to get all wrapped up in what’s “fair” and “right” and “should be” today. Honestly? It may cross your brain more than once, but pretty much nobody sports righteous indignation gracefully. It’s just not that graceful and it usually feels pretty crummy. Don’t look to re-calibrate the world and try to force others to fit into your idea of balanced and rightness. Recalibrate yourself, get your own bearings and stay solidly rooted in your own energy. The balance needed is within, always.

Friday, Eight of Cups: In this, some may see sadness or not caring anymore. Me? I see freedom, big and bold freedom. There’s been an undercurrent of bother this week about how the rest of the world is not doing as it “should” and therefore, it somehow falls upon our shoulders to set the world straight. That’s a futile and ugly endeavor if ever I saw it. A sweet release of all this baggage makes it so much easier to just BE who you want to be without bothering about whether the rest of the world is who you want them to be. You know? With that approach, you can continue on your own journey unimpeded by baggage that is not of your packing.

Saturday, Ace of Swords Rx: Less thinking, more feeling. Less talking, more listening. Less planning, more adapting. FEEL your way through today.

Sunday, High Priestess: Make sure you give yourself a chance to plug in and feel good! Imagination and visualizations are especially powerful right now. Get yourself in a good-feeling place and play with ideas of what you’d like to manifest in your life. Then allow inspirations to come as they will over the next few days. Quiet downtime, nature breaks and naps are all potential sources of wonderful inspiration.

Overview/Advice, Page of Pentacles Rx, Strength: Strength popped out of the deck before I started to throw cards, so I added her as a modifier to the advice section. This is a perfect combination for Mercury retrograde, when plans and communications tend to go a bit wonky. Gentle, persistent patience is what’s required this week! A light touch, but coming back to double check all that’s important to you. Understand you may have to do and redo a little here and there, so expect it and remain calm throughout. That will get you there.

20160904_123044_HDRAffirmation: I can create my world as I choose. I know, I know. “Why would I create this?” That’s what some would ask.

No matter what your situation, how you look at it–how you think about it and hence, how you come to feel about it–completely determines the emotional tone of the experience. If a thousand people share an experience of the same event, there will be a thousand and two different experiences of that event. (A couple are gonna be wafflers, man.) Your emotional experiences are INTERNAL, not asserted upon you from the outside world. And that is how you begin to create your world as you choose it. Funny thing about that, though. As you line up the energy to experience what you’ve got in the best, most optimistic way that you can? The external circumstances begin to line up to match.

How you doing out there?

Mind Your Own Damn Vibes: Weekly Flow Tarot, Jun 6 – 12

Ever interact at length with a big trash-talker? And somewhere along the way, you notice they have something bad to say about everybody? No matter who it is or what it is, they have criticism and ridicule. Maybe the delivery is entertaining and it initially comes off as theatre, showmanship. At first, it may seem situational. Oh, those crazy stories! But as time goes on you realize, every situation, all the time, does not equal “situational.” It equals ingrained behavior.

Eventually, it dawns on you: they must do exactly the same trash-talking about you.

Ow.

But the thing is, that trash talking doesn’t become true upon utterance. How someone talks about you (and everyone else) is really their problem much, much more than it is yours. I think of it as a form of illness, really. What a sad way to live–feeling as if you must tear others down to have value, yourself.

The only way such trash talk can really hurt you once you get past the initial emotional reaction, is if it syncs up with your vibration. So if the content rings true to your own doubts and fears, it will reinforce them. And if it doesn’t, then it’s just ridiculousness to you.

Is it nice? No. No, it’s not. Is it your problem? Not really.

You don’t have the power to decide for another, whether or not they’ll behave a certain way. You only have power and right to decide, what you let into your world. Whether you can and do evict the trash-talker from your life doesn’t matter, so long as you step back and release the trash talk itself.

This is a long-winded example of what the energy this week feels like to me. It’s identifying what doesn’t ring true to your soul, what doesn’t work for you. But it’s also removing the outside forces from the equation. It’s not your job to clean up anybody else’s energy and good thing, too! That’s impossible. It’s only your job to manage your own energy.  Fortunately, that’s a whole lot more manageable.

We’ve got a week of managing our own energy. Mind your own damn vibes.

IMG_5163

I’m seeing two very distinct themes in next week’s Tarot flow. 1.) Mind your own vibrations, not your neighbor’s! And 2.) Align your behavior with your true self, to clean up your vibrations. One could make the argument that I’m seeing these messages because I’ve been on a “crochet and listen to Law of Attraction videos)” spree. Or because I need them–couldn’t deny that. Or one could argue that I was drawn to do so because that’s what is in tune with the energetic weather, right now. I’m going with that option. Ha!

Monday, Love – Queen of Wands Rx: Love isn’t control. Love isn’t conditional. Love isn’t stubborn. Love just IS. The sentence, “I love you” is complete, without a “but” tagged on the end. You do not have to love everything someone does to love the person. Today, lead with your most loving thoughts and feelings. Sit quietly a few minutes and reflect on what you love before going out to meet and greet the world. When you take care to adjust your vibration prior to interacting or taking any action, you bring that vibration along with you and infuse your work, your conversations, your thoughts and your life with that vibration. Today? Bring love.

Tuesday, Joy & Stability, Four of Wands: Acknowledge a happy event and enjoy it, for God’s sakes! A safe haven is available right NOW and it’s stable Relish in it.

Wednesday, Seek/Base Chakra – The Lovers Rx: For greater security, look at what does NOT fit in with who you really are. Those nudges you get, where you feel uncomfortable? There is a reason, and that reason is that it’s not aligned with your soul’s intention. Seek out areas of disharmony not to focus upon them (and therefore grow them bigger), but to adjust them to find harmony.

Thursday, Control – Queen of Pentacles Rx: Dismiss the phrase “for your own good” from your conversational vocabulary. We sometimes think we’re doing someone else a favor by “taking care” of ’em to push them into being more whom we think they should be. Recognize the tendency for what it is: an illusion. Care for yourself first. Those inclined to follow suit, those in a receptive mode for the kind of energy you are putting out, will follow suit without any intervention on your part.

Friday, Moving On – Seven of Cups: Moving on is a choice–the outcome you cannot predict before you actually do it. Don’t worry so much about what is what, in terms of outcome. Thing is, you let go of what doesn’t serve, what you’ve outgrown or no longer vibe with and that energy is released to make space for your tomorrow. You know?

Saturday, Listen –Nine of Swords Rx: Your guilt and worries don’t tell you what’s going to happen. They tell you what you think about yourself. Listen to them, not because they are true, but because they are a map to exactly what’s holding you back.

Sunday, Final Release – High Priestess: Tuning in to your greater wisdom is a sort of surrender. It requires letting go of the dominant mind chatter and acknowledging that your inner self knows best while your physical self needs to step out of they way. Get out of your own way!

Overview/Advice, Coming Together – The Moon Rx: To truly connect, you must be willing to be seen. No lies, no hiding. Throughout the week, take the risk of being true to yourself and your feelings. Take the risk of being seen. I’m not saying, “Bare your very soul to anyone who happens to be standing nearby.” Discretion is fine. Just be sure, whatever words come out of your mouth, whatever action you propel your body into taking, whatever thoughts you allow residence in your brain? See to it, these are all honest representations of who you really are, and consistent with who you want to be. That’s simple enough, yes?

IMG_5160We’ve got affirmations times two, because two wanted to show up. So who am I to argue?

  • Passion – Archangel Haniel: “Trust and follow your renewed passion in your love life and career.”
  • Career Transition – Archangel Chamuel: “Your life purpose is triggering a blessed career change.”

Both of these draws speak to purpose and passion. What’s been on my radar recently is how much the energy we are wearing in the process is infused in whatever we do.

You want more money? Do not do money-related work when you’re down, scared or feeling the lack. FIRST get your feeling state up. Calm, center and then build it by intentionally evoking gratitude and appreciation for what you DO have, right now, for all the money you’ve ever had, throughout your lifetime. Feel grateful for all the physical comforts and gifts you enjoy NOW. Get that mood shifted upward, as optimistic and upbeat as possible.

You want love? Don’t reach out when you feel low and are looking for someone OUTSIDE yourself to build you up. If you do, you’ll get someone who reinforces insecurities. Holes in your self-esteem cannot be plugged up by outside interaction, although they can be temporarily soothed. This whole happiness thing is a totally inside job.

But whatever you are looking to do, whatever you want, sync up your thoughts and feelings with the desired outcome FIRST, before you do a damned thing. Because if you don’t, what you’ll do will be damned. So adjust your vibe first. Before anything else.

And then? See which action (if any) feels GOOD, right now. See what activity, what thought, what doing gives you the most joy, the most excitement, right in this moment. If there is nothing that lights you up, wait to move until there is. That is exactly how divinely inspired action, infused with a receptive energy for that you wish to receive, is constructed. Let passion lead the way!
