07/31/13: Seriously? / Page of Wands

page-wands

Man, I never have liked this version of the Page of Wands, aka “Playfulness” in the Osho Zen. Number one, clowns are CREEPY. Number two, this sheer clown-suit barely covers her naked self and I’m sorry, but clowns are way NOT sexy. (See #1.)  But somehow, this card comes up very frequently for me in this deck anyway. Maybe I should take that as a hint.

But enough kibitzing. Let’s stick with the point.

It’s the spark of fun, the everlasting NOT-so-serious, that gives our art and work and life magic force. Recreation is creative. Laughter is healing. Don’t underestimate the magical and transformative power of playfulness.

So always do your best to laugh—at yourself, at your problems, at your faults, and at your life. Remain humble and accept your trek for what it is: a grand adventure with sometimes epic silliness and mishap! See the humor. If you’re not happy at the moment, actively seek the absurdity, the silliness, the goofiness inherent in all situations to free up creative energy and move forward.

Can you find ways to use playfulness to serve you?

06/03/13: Roadmap for Manifesting /Queen Cups, Page Wands, 9 Cups

I realized it’s been a long time since I pulled out the Transparent Tarot and it’s a fun and interesting deck to work with, so come atcha, a slew of daily forecasts from this non-traditional work. A particular strength of this deck is the layering visually suggests complex interrelationships and ideas with very simple image.

Take this one, for example…

To begin creating what your heart desires, acknowledge and feel it deep within. Let yourself EXERIENCE it fully. The action needed to bring it to fruition will reverberate within you to generate a sense of childlike wonder and excitement. This is how you live your dreams.

Do you have use for such a roadmap?

Singingfairy: Master’s Degree or Move on? Mini-reading

“Hi Dixie,
I’ve put off finishing my masters degree for a while now. The love for it is gone, but I feel like I have to finish it or I will aways be that baggage. I’ve been thinking about going into a new direction – music – but then that old master always shows up. How can I move past this old energy?
Thank you so much!” -Singingfairy

Well, let’s see what we can get.

Short Answer:  This reading was interesting in that I needed a clarification card to get the main message, which is (of course) follow your heart, but with the caveat of using your education thus-far and the probability of needing a job-job in the interim. Hope that’s helpful to you!

03/23/13: Seeking Passion in Work / Page Wands

play-page-wands

“Yes, you need passion!  Contentment is awesome, appreciating what you have is great, but you can use contentment as a comfortable place to be, a springboard to support you while you’re seeking what truly makes your heart sing.”

I was talking to a friend about her work. She is in a comfortable place, and there’s not a thing wrong with being content. I’m glad! But it does have one disadvantage compared to the less blessed, in that there’s less impetus to make changes and grow.

If you want more than a paycheck—passion, excitement, personally fulfilling work—it has to be sought, or at the very least recognized when the opportunity comes to town. If you’re too busy saying, “Yeah, but…,” you may just miss the boat.

“Playfulness” is the Osho Zen deck’s Page of Wands. While this isn’t my favorite rendition (clowns are SO creepy!), the point isn’t lost to my clown-aversion. Whatever you create, you are infusing your own energy into that creation.

The magic here is coming from a passionate heart, a sense of fun and lightheartedness. Transparent rainbow clothes give a peek at the person underneath. Whatever art she makes in this headspace, whatever words she writes or pictures she paints or house she builds, whatever she does, it is will accurately reflect WHO she is, and carry that vibration from within her.

Joy is one of your most reliable compasses for achievement. Sure, we do some things because we feel we have to do them; that’s being a grown up. But the more time and energy you can populate with activity that brings deep joy, the closer you’re living in alignment with your true self. That is how people achieve great things. It’s not by being someone else! It’s by being more of their true selves, by personifying the love, the magic, the divinity that resides within.

If you don’t know where to start, consider “Playfulness” a clue. What is it that is fun? When do you find yourself smiling and laughing and feeling at your best? Start right now, today, to do MORE of that “playing.” What you’re doing isn’t wasting time. It’s raising your vibration, activating your heart chakra (hello, magnetic energy)! Being happier is one way of literally shifting the nature of your reality. And you thought it was just screwing around, huh?

Having fun is not the same thing as being unproductive. Not only does it sharpen your mind, there’s a good chance any activity done playfully is it’s way MORE productive than what you force yourself through. As you add more of this to your life, you find more of it in your life.

I love learning about esoteric, using Tarot to solve problems and showing others how to do the same. This is FUN for me, this is what I’d do if I had complete freedom to do whatever I liked.  I started doing it for fun and eventually, it became my business and mission, as well as my passion. Pretty neat trick, I think!

Have you found your passion?

02/19/13: Let Go & Be Glad / Hierophant, Page Wands

“When you feel frustrated or upset by a person [including yourself] or a situation, remember that you are not reacting to the person or the situation, but to your feelings [beliefs] about the person or the situation.” -Deepak Chopra

osho-zen-nothingness-playfulness

The Osho Zen style of the Hierophant and the Page of Wands, as in “No-thingness” and “Playfulness” grace us today.

Empty your mind of worries, concerns, irritations, aggravations, and negative what-ifs. Let go of indignations and attachment to outcomes. Release it all, and find yourself completely and utterly in the moment. This, my friends, is true freedom.

If you don’t have control over a situation, hand it over to the Universe.

Use your energy to take joy in the now. Breathe, eat, laugh, and be merry. This makes worries less likely to materialize energetically (and keeps you from experiencing those negative outcomes emotionally even barring real-world manifestation). Your life becomes instantly better.

Can you let go and be glad?

01/07/13: Light your Fire! | Knave of Wands

“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” Napoleon Hill

It’s the Page of Wands (here, as Knave), apparently considering the implications of lighting his wand! Come to think of it, that is kind of what this guy does. He gets fired up! And in doing so, he has a message to share, a creative venture to undertake, and some fun to have!

Light that fire.

You have a fire to light?
