Inspiration for My Day

Quan YinQuan Yin, Ascended Master of Compassion.

 

This morning I asked for a card from my Healing Earth Tarot deck, and was given two.  That seemed odd, but once I looked at the cards, it made sense.

7 of Shields:

This suit speaks from the Throat Chakra, through which we manifest our physical existence and all that comes to us in that realm.

The 7 of Shields represents new growth and new ideas being made manifest, emerging from a time of inner work during which we have been hibernating or transforming inside a womb or egg.  It can also represent us coming forth from retreat or a winter of withdrawal and reassessment.

In my own life, this card is spot on, as I’ve been in deep inner work since last fall and early winter, letting go of a of grief and sadness that had logged itself everywhere in my body over a lifetime.  I have made great shifts, and now have new ideas about the services I offer to align with the times that are ahead.

6 of Crystals:

This suit speaks from the Solar Plexus Chakra, the power center that is connected with our mental body.  The image on the card includes a drawing of Quan Yin, Ascended Master and Goddess of Compassion.

This card invites us to rise above all worries and concerns, to take the higher view, to be detached from emotions that might hold us back or limit us, and to move out of judgment and into compassion.

When we are compassionate with ourselves, it’s easier to begin a new adventure or to head off in a new direction.  Mistakes are important for learning and for growth, and beating ourselves up for them is non-productive and detrimental.  Forgiveness for what we see as our mistakes will more quickly transform them into beneficial lessons.

In my own life, I tend to be very hard on myself, which is definitely not helpful under any circumstances.  This card fully supports the first one I pulled.  I’m reminded that being kind and loving to myself as I go in new directions will prevent me from holding myself back with old patterns of judgment and self-criticism.

Learning to be kind to myself is an ongoing lesson these days, and I’m grateful to have the reminder.

Tarot Card Readings

When I work with the tarot cards, I recognize that the messages I’m receiving are coming from within myself, from my higher self or I Am Presence, and from all the other aspects of me who are eager to communicate their messages.

I don’t see tarot as coming from outside ourselves.  I don’t give my power away to the cards.  Instead, the cards become part of me, aligned with me energetically so that I always receive the perfect message.

Then I quickly discover how the messages are designed to assist me as guidance, but not a predictors of anything.  I’m in charge, and I can transform my life when I have more insight into myself and the greater wisdom that I know is available to me from my I Am Presence.

 

 

Tarot Message to Brighten My Day

Message to Myself

 

I have a beautiful tarot deck that I purchased many years ago.  It’s called The Healing Earth Tarot, by Joyti and David McKie.  I didn’t know anything about tarot cards at the time, but I was very drawn to the image on the front of the box.

I loved looking at the all the artwork on the cards, but I was very unsure about how to get started with tarot.  So I bought some books about tarot in general, and what I discovered really surprised me.

Most tarot decks have 4 suits and what is called the Major Arcana.  The Healing Earth Tarot has 6 suits and the Major Arcana.  So when I read books about tarot, they didn’t seem to be very helpful at understanding a 6-suit deck.

Then it occurred to me that the descriptions of the 4 suits in an old fashioned tarot deck sound a great deal like the first 4 chakras of the human energy body.  The Major Arcana sounds very like the crown chakra with messages coming from your higher self.

So I took a closer look at the Healing Earth Tarot suits.  That’s when I noticed that the additional 2 suits could be related to the Throat and 3rd Eye chakras, while the other 4 suits aligned with the first 4 chakras, as in the older decks.

Finding the correspondence between the suits and the major chakras of the body helped me understand more deeply the messages I was receiving when I used this insightful and artistically beautiful tarot deck.

Once I had a pattern that made sense to me, using this tarot deck took on deeper meaning, as I could connect with the appropriate chakras and ask for more information.  I learned first hand that tarot works by connecting the energy of the person having the reading with the cards.  You have to “clear the deck” between readings to eliminate old energy that no longer applies.

Just this morning, feeling a bit “out of sorts” emotionally after listening to the ice floes on my roof crack and groan all night as temperatures sank to minus 12 degrees fahrenheit, I decided to choose a Tarot card for the day.

I cleared the deck and then held it gently to energize it.

I pulled a card.

I was astonished to see that I had pulled The Sun card from the Major Arcana.  The message of this card was uplifting and inspiring, and came from my own I Am Presence.

Conscious  Celebration

 A New Day Dawns Bringing Rebirth and Renewal!

This image is not from the tarot deck, out of respect for the creators of the deck. But it does express some of the JOY that the tarot card represents.  The card and it’s message shifted me into a place of anticipation and well-being.  I’m so glad I followed my guidance to use these cards today.
