12/12/13: Dress the Part! / King of Wands

King of Wands

Seeing the regal King of Wands here today, I want to tell everybody to dress for success. Let the real you SHINE bright! Show up not as who you fear you could be(like a Capricorn transit to the moon), but who you want to be. Dress the part of “you” at your best!

You don’t have to be all the way there yet. Feeling it on the outside is a step towards being it on the inside.

It’s like the advice they give you sometimes about doing video: be authentically yourself, absolutely. But be your BEST self. That strikes me as good to do today. Fix your hair, select a flattering outfit and don’t forget your most essential accessory: a big, sunshiny smile! It will make you seem brighter and more regal somehow. The King of Wands would approve.

Do you like to “dress the part?”

11/18/13: Intention of Creation / Ace of Cups

Ace of Cups Tarot

“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” –Mahatma Gandhi

Yes, words matter. But the Ace of Cups doesn’t speak to words. This ace speaks to the heart, the intention deeper and truer than any words could express.

Words can fall short—and sooner or later, everyone will fall short of their mark with their words. We’re imperfect creatures. Missteps are inevitable.

The heart however, can remain true when the words fall short. Because what’s in our heart is the seed of intention, the impetus for action that starts with a seed of feeling and grows, we can consciously aim it and safeguard it through a course of conscious kindness, loving energy and staying as pure and (spiritually) clean as we can.

The heart is also the center of manifestation. Heart energy creates, so be aware of what materials raw materials you feed this force.

What do you want to create with the power of your heart?

08/29/13: Inspiration of Discontent / 4 of Cups

Before I started working for myself, I spent a lot of time daydreaming, about what it would be like to work from home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html, choose my own clients (and treat them well), wear what I wanted, do work I felt good about in a way I felt good about it, and in general try out my own ideas on how a business should be run in the real world. I spent a lot of time dreaming this up! My conception of what my own business would be was firmly rooted in what I didn’t like about the jobs I’d held.

Eventually, I put my ideas into practice. Not all of them worked out well—my roommate matching service was a bust, despite the many hours of toil. But I didn’t give up and some took, like making websites. And the entire process led me to the place where I’m able to do what I do today, one building block atop another.

Sometimes discontent can be a good thing, if it leads somewhere.

The Four of Cups can represent any sort of discontent, including the divine kind. This version indeed emphasizes the discontent as the man pictured isn’t even looking at the new cup, mystically held above him by a spiritual hand. He’s simply contemplating what he is not happy about, apparently.

The sense of being unsettled, unhappy and “missing something” can indeed be a gift if you use it properly. The trick is to stop looking downward at regrets, past hurts, whatever has grounded you to the earth as it is, and start looking up at possibilities, potentials, avenues for change and growth.

Where you’ve been, the world as you know it, doesn’t matter much beyond instructive value, when you’re at this place. Even then, it’s limited because how many of us have the objectivity to fairly weigh out uncomfortable situations and judge our own roles in them? There are lessons there, sure, but they can be learned without depressive self-castigation.

However, if we shift our goals from what we do not want to what we would like to have instead, every annoyance, every missing piece, every area of discontent becomes a gift conferring clarity, insight and possibility for change.

If you don’t like where you are, for God’s sakes, DO SOMETHING about it! Realizing that you don’t like where you are is a gift from God plain and simple. To avail yourself, call an quick end to the pity party and gather up what you have in hand. The resources and lessons from the present inform the future. And that is how you get there from here!

Have you found discontent inspiring?

Approval vs. Joy & the Healing Secret Within (Aquarius Full Moon)

20130818_142005

Seeking the approval of others hinders my joyousness. If the way you feel depends on anything outside of you, you’re in trouble—but if you depend only upon your connection with your own Inner Being, then everything in your experience falls into alignment.” – Abraham/Hicks

I’ve said it many times: Any time your happiness depends on factors outside yourself, you are in trouble! We want the Magician working here for us here, not the Devil.

That doesn’t mean we must lack emotional connections or interdependencies. It merely means taking responsibility first and foremost for your OWN happiness and well-being. In truth, there is no better way to positively influence others’ happiness and well-being than to take charge and responsibility for your own.

Happy parents help make happy children. Happy wives and/or happy husbands help create happy marriages. Happy bosses make for happier employees.

The most powerful healing comes from within—fueled by a deep acceptance of who you really are inside. The really cool thing about self-healing is that in the process, your example, your energy, your joyful vibration lifts and helps heal OTHER PEOPLE. Like ripples in the water, that energy expands whome/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_htmlver it touches.

Some will approve of you, and some will not. That’s SO not about you (or me). But if you maintain the righteous freedom of being who you truly are in every way possible, full of love and acceptance for who THAT person is, a truly life-affirming and healing energy that opens up as a direct result.

Make no mistake: Living as true to yourself as possible, seeking your own joy instead of approval, will definitely make some people disapprove! But you know what? That is their right, their path to walk, their confusion to clear. Don’t own that. Own YOU.

This message brought to you by the Full Moon in Aquarius, 8:45pm CST.

You feeling the drive to live more true?

August 2013 Coping: Lots of Baby Steps, Man.

So, when I was doing the forecast videos, I did one as an overview for coping in August. At least, I TRIED…

Short version: You don’t need to be “there” yet. You just need to know the direction you want to go. You reach for the next best feeling place from where you start. You take little bitty steps toward your goal. And much like I kept plugging away to do this video, you will eventually get what you need together if you don’t give up!

Are you feeling this?

06/28/13: Ruminate on Love / 2 of Cups

“Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.” Leo Buscaglia

2-cups

How much does it really matter, anyway? This question has saved countless hours of discontent. When I’m able to let go of “right” and “should” and insistence that everyone else must see the world as me—and hence behave as I feel appropriate—life becomes infinitely easier. Attachments to personal perception of propriety are certainly my right. But everyone else on the planet (or beyond) has the same basis at work, the same drive to self-determination.

How much pain and suffering comes from stubbornly trying to enforce vision, morality and perspective upon unwilling recipients? It’s not self-determination that’s so bothersome. It’s that “other-determination” that gets my goat! It’s a fine line between activism and control freak. Instead of trying to convert, I’m opting to be myself a clearly and purely as I know how. Those who choose to be of similar energy will be drawn. Those who are diametrically different will be repulsed. It’s a much less labor-intensive system.

The Two of Cups is a lesser version of the Lovers. In the Housewives’ Tarot, the man and woman reflect perfect harmony, inhabiting a little emotional world all their own. In each coupling, there is a coming together of like spirits, but also a sublimation of two different parties into a single entity. The two become one in that sense, but needn’t lose their individuality in the process.

To be surrounded by love, feel love and be love. You may not love some specific behavior, but hold fast to the principle. The discordant vibrations fall away. I inject energy into what I want in my life, and dismiss the rest. This is a lot more effective than electing to force-feed my will to those not hungry for it.

Are you able to dismiss what you don’t like about loved ones?
