The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.
1/8/2016 – A Touch of Guidance
So yesterday I felt the urge to get some clothes for myself from a local metaphysical store. Well when I got there I decided to get Tarot cards. What I ended up with were Magical Times Empowerment Cards. I knew right away these were the ones I wanted. I remember how magical my mother’s Tarot Cards seemed to me as a child and these just seemed to hold that same possibility. And they were the right price. I took them home, charged them, and then inquired about the direction I should proceed on this journey. The first card I pulled was
Adversity- See the gifts in challenge. One can be taught within the calm, but the greatest lessons are learned from the storms.
At first I was confused but quickly realized I was probably dealing with a three card reading. Instead of Adversity representing what I have to look forward to in my future, Adversity represented my journey so far, what brought me to this point in my life. An imbalance. I realized what I had been dealing with is fear. Fear of things I cannot control as well as how sensitive I can be to the trials others are facing. Just knowing the pain of other beings (people, animal, whatever) causes me considerable pain and I want desperately to help/save them. And I can’t. Vaccinations being forced was the straw that broke this camels back. Although I vaccinate my children, on a different timeline, and most likely have nothing to worry about, it was is if this was a death sentence to every one of my babies! I eventually developed aches and pains in my neck and shoulders that were hard to release. Anyways, I won’t go there now. I still believe in choice but this issue and how much it affected me is indeed what led me to decide to block out a ton of stuff from my reality while I heal and grow. The next card I drew was the reverse
Integrity- Drop the things that offend your soul. Embrace your truth. It’s your life, let no one live it for you.
Now this is interesting because it is my present card but upside down! I am NOT being my best, truest self. But why? Who is that woman? How do I drop those things that worry me? I have an idea of the woman I want to become but I am open to suggestions from the universe. The last card, the card that gives me some small clue as to what I should focus on- the card that took me by surprise- was
Destiny- Acknowledge your mission. Align with your purpose. You have gifts to share with the world.
This, to me, denotes so much positive power in just the possibilities alone! It means I am at a major turning point in my life and- well it means I also need to be careful with my choices. There is a quote in the booklet that comes with these cards,
Be careful of your thoughts,
for they become your words.
Be careful of your words,
for they become your actions.
Be careful of your actions,
for they become your habits.
Be careful of your habits,
for they become your character.
Be careful of your character,
for your character becomes your destiny.
The Destiny card definitely puts more weight to this off-handed decision I have made.
