What’s in the cards today? Second day of rain, two to go. Please, I’d like to love this day in spite of, no, because of, the gray, the dark, the cold and the wet. The cards say, dream up your own beautiful day and let your connection to the world of energy bring it to life, rainy or not.
I spend a lot of time dreaming, connecting with the energy that guides me, and visualizing beautiful scenes and creatures. I couldn’t create the way I do otherwise. Imagination colors everything we think, say and do. It defines our relationships with people and the world. Some days it feels magical and some days it doesn’t. What I’ve come to appreciate is, no matter what I’ve got going on externally, I can count on this inner world to support me, heal me, soothe me, root for me and love me. If I reach for it and can’t find it, it doesn’t mean it isn’t there, it means I’ve gotta give up for a while. Take a nap, play a game, go for a walk.. something to trigger the relief response so I can feel the connection again. This sounds ridiculous if you’re in a funk, but it gets to be entertaining. Fun even. Well, ask me next time I’m feeling disconnected.
Here’s the story in the cards today: Rainy days are the best days to practice being my own sun. I’m Dreaming up creative visions to Energize my mind. Looking for Beauty everywhere and feeling for my Connection to love.
What’s in the cards today? First of all, ouch. These colors together feel dissonant to me. I like to feel good, as you know, so facing a day of contraction and/or release is never my first choice. But I felt my vibe before I picked cards, so I’m not surprised. The thing is, I can say, “oh bummer” and wallow here all day, or I can look right at the feelings, do some energy work, and move on to lighter vibes. That’s the message in the cards and my goal. It’s not a bypass. I’m well aware of what I’m feeling and why. I see the patterns. I know what has to move and I feel supported in my efforts. Pasting a smile on my face won’t do it, but breathing and soothing does. So far so good.
Here’s the story in the cards today: To find and keep my Balance today, I listen to and trust my Connection to source. That inner Wisdom tells me to clear my energetic space, Release old patterns and make room for what pleases me.
What’s in the cards today? When I get the Creativity card on days I won’t be working, I know it’s about creatively shifting my perspective to create the kind of day I’ll enjoy. The personal hit I got with these cards is this: I’m going to have to dig deep for the resources I need to support my mother as she transitions. It could take a while, and it’s draining. But it’s also a huge gift to me to face and walk through these moments with her.
You can fill in the blank with anything you’ve got going on. Finding a way to your inner light not only shifts you, but enables you to support others. You’ll notice support coming your way as well, and your circumstances will be easier to deal with. Everyone I know is facing something right now. People are feeling boxed in by limitation, obligation and responsibility. We create these boxes in order to find our way out of them. The game of life! Be the observer, let the light in, and flip the lid off your obstacles.
Here’s the story in the cards today: I feel divinely Supported by my ability to Creatively Shift out of limited thinking and into the Light. My world responds accordingly.
What’s in the cards today? I think it’s hard to relax in a world that feels like it’s on its ear. But it’s so necessary. How else do we have the courage to allow this massive transformation to take place? Moms know this: when you’re pregnant, you just have to give in and get off your feet. That’s where we are, all of us.. giving birth to our new selves, and collectively creating a new world as well. I can say from experience, it f&*@ing hurts to have a baby. And it’s not easy once s/he gets here either. You mourn the old you, who’s just gone. And you have to learn a whole new way of being, taking the new life one day at a time and letting it all unfold. There’s no controlling that experience, and there’s no controlling this one. You can try, but it’ll make it so much harder. I just hold onto the knowing that this powerful energetic connection we’re experiencing and putting into place is amazing from every angle. And I can tell you from my own perspective, not every angle is pretty. I spent an hour yelling F&*! a few days ago I was so mad (at myself.) But I somehow new to tromp through it without squelching it, and just a bit later I felt open and alive.
Here’s the story in the cards today: Courage is guiding me as I hook up with this Powerful Connection in myself and the world. The more I Relax about it happening, the better I feel.
What’s in the cards today? Sometimes I just take each card individually and feel into what it means to me. Manifest reminds me that I’m creating my life every second of the day. It’s not merely about what things I can bring to life, but how I can feel when I focus and let my heart open. That ties into Healing, which I associate with my soul. Any time I allow myself to rest, I’m creating healing for all levels of my being. And that’s Wisdom in its purest sense. But I can also receive Wisdom in that state, epiphanies about myself and my relationships with everyone and everything. Together, these cards are speaking to me on a soul level about letting myself receive, rather than trying to achieve.
Here’s the story in the cards today: I feel surrounded with Wisdom today. I Manifest this soul Healing for myself when I need a Rest from the minutiae of daily life. I’m grateful for this insight.
What’s in the cards today? Like everyone else, I’m feeling this energy big time. And maybe like me, you’ve decided to take yourself on an energetic upshift while the current is swift. Which means not just living through these transformations, but feeling inspired to actively go after the expansion, like walking up to a big dragon and believing you can win him over. Such daring accentuates the emotional ups and downs, revives the long forgotten past, and ignites extreme reactions to life. This is happening for everyone, but we’re intentionally using the waves as stepping stones to a new way of being. It’s not comfortable, but it’s got to happen. It’s as though we have no other choice but to face the exquisite nature of this opportunity head on.
I use these cards to help me understand what’s happening, to focus on feelings I want to feel, and to strengthen my connection to Source. Even in my darkest hours, I want to feel Clarity and Faith. I want to know I’m Supported by the Light. So I never give up and I point myself toward these vibes every day by slowing down, taking time for myself, saying no, goofing off, and doing whatever I need to do to feel replenished. Even if I have a crap day, it makes me stronger, and it takes the long-term out of my relationship with darkness.
Here’s the story in the cards today: In my Clarity today, I feel Supported by the Light. This Light is everything to me, and my Faith is shifting to a whole new level.
What’s in the cards today? I’m feeling like today’s going to be great as long as I pay attention. For some reason, this card combination says to me, “We’ll be here for you when you need us, and you will.” Which I interpret as, things coming out of the blue today have the potential to derail me. Best to stay in my own energy if possible. Well, it wasn’t possible. And derailed I was. But I bounced back really quickly, which means Joy hasn’t left the scene. She’s around, in the background, letting me know I’ve got a credit balance. Daily practice k’ching, as it were.
Here’s the story in the cards today: Dear Wisdom, thank you for your Support. I feel best when I’m free to Dream and lose myself in our Connection.
What’s in the cards today? Sometimes it’s more fun to write about these cards after I’ve lived some of the day. The story emerges into details I couldn’t have predicted, but the energies make sense. I’m on alert for indicators, messages, symbols and meaning. Emails and calls arrive with an essence, an aliveness hiding beneath the surface. In my own fantastic mind, I assign magical meaning to all of it. I’m soothed knowing I’m the conjurer, which means, I’m neither bully nor victim. I’m painter, magician, high priestess.. Queen of the Stars. I bow to no one, and expect none to bow to me. We’re all in this together.
Here’s the story in the cards today: Wisdom showers me with inner Strength, while Joy, my faithful friend, Forgives my self-oppression and loves me into freedom.
What’s in the cards today? Joy’s still got its eye on me, saying, “C’mon, you can feel it. Keep it up.” Focus is everything. I could easily get up in the morning, remember all the things on my to-do list (or the world news), feel even subtly overwhelmed or busy, and start settling into a feeling less than Joy. Fortunately, I’m in the vicinity of it or it would be harder to tune in. In that case, I’d go digging in the trunk of my heart for that one nugget that clicks. It’s usually a new perspective, but it can be anything that gives me a feeling of relief. Then I take that resonance and see how far I can go with it. It’s daily practice that builds muscle.
This morning, before I picked cards, I asked how to bring Joy into the day. That it showed up in the cards is helpful, and it’s here with the obvious answer: Focus on it. Invite it. Think about it. Look for it. Find it. Live it. Spread it. Be it. In so doing, I allow myself to feel it, which is all kinds of Healing and helps me stay Balanced. Sharing with other people, from this vantage point, sends me Flying into more Joy. It’s really all about me focusing and resonating with the vibe of my choosing, rather than bouncing off whatever comes my way this day.
Here’s the story in the cards today: Joy, I’m actively looking for and finding you today. Your Healing vibes flow through my thoughts and keep me Balanced. My heart Flies, open to your subtleties. Thank you for focusing on me.
What’s in the cards today? As you can see, we’re moving on to a new theme here. Joy got through and is grounded, so we can work with more energy now. Personally, a feeling of Connection to Source feeds my Faith, strengthens my Clarity and boosts my Vitality. That’s what I’m experiencing, and the cards are validating that, kind of like cheerleaders, which I like.
I can feel I’m on a new path. It’s been breaking open for weeks, maybe months. Signs and guidance everywhere I turn, from relationships to dreams to dying old habits to inner and outer visions. It’s amazing really, and at some points, a bit like a haunted mansion. In hindsight, I find it funny.
Here’s the story in the cards today: My Connection to Source feels strong and Clear. I have a ton of Faith in myself to interpret the guidance I’m receiving and to navigate the path I’m on. Vitality is coursing through my veins at the speed of light. Don’t even need coffee.
