In my other (not-as-woo) enterprises, I sell books. The last few weeks, sales have been agonizingly absent.
Now, I could have let this lead to getting anxious or worked up or scared. That sort of thing creeps in sometimes, but for the most part, I’ve been framing this as an opportunity. It’s a nudge to up my own game, you know? Time and space to improve. Motivation to learn more. So much inspiration I would never have found, had I not been in the position to seek it directly.
I really think everything anyone does is the same. When we find ourselves in circumstances that are not to our liking, it’s not indication we’re screwing up somehow. It’s an opportunity–neigh, an outright call–to level up. Without things not working with way you’d like, you’d never be prompted to improve you know. (And yes, the sales are starting to come back, the way they always do.)
Here we’ve got the Five of Cups and the Chariot, both reversed, from the Star Tarot Deck. I have some mixed feelings about using reversals with the intricacy of the images on this deck, but that’s how they came out and I feel it’s appropriate to take into account the reversals.
But the really funny thing? These were the exact same two cards I drew (in a completely different incident) for last week. So repetitive Tarot is repetitive!
First and foremost, the sense of pain out in the wild (from the world at large) should be diminishing, along with the feeling of forcefulness in general. Energy is still moving, but it’s slower and softer than before, which will no doubt come as a relief to most as we’re all sensitive to varying degrees. I’m seeing this less “more of the same” and more “it’s easing.” This is good news. It doesn’t make it all suddenly feel very soft and fluffy, but I’m seeing this as a definite, collective sense of relief.
The advice I’m seeing in this is to back off a little. Less categorizing of good and bad and less focusing on the fixes. You feel what you feel but don’t grasp at it and milk the emotions, you know? Let go of any grief you’ve got going, at least to the extent you are able. Don’t try to force change or lead the charge. Just take a step back and exhale. Generally, there’s not a bad time for that anyway.Let the world do whatever it does. You do whatever is true to YOU. #OnMyRadar Click To Tweet
It doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing. Whether you love what you see or absolutely hate it, you always have the choice of how to frame it. It can either be “proof” of disaster, or prompt for changes. You can BE whatever part of the situation you choose. Personally, I want to ride the change, the new and the improved. And I know damn well that the existence of the old mess is what drives the improvement into the new reality. So I’m good with that.
How are you doing with changes?
If you need a little help with your framing, give me a holler for a one-on-one. And be as happy as you can out there, friends!
