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.
