Be careful what..and who.. you step on to get to the top. The wake you leave behind will affect those behind you. But it can also stir up consequences that can cause you great problems as you move forward on your path. Sacrificing everything to get what you want is a very high price to pay. And in the end, it’s never worth it. So be careful what you’re willing to give up in order to get what you think you want.
Are you willing to sacrifice your integrity, your reputation and the trust others close to you have place in your hands? These things take years to develop and once they have become cracked, they cannot be fully repaired.
Wands represent the essence of Enterprise, Inspiration, and Distinction. Don’t let the self-centered infectious greed of others be your inspiration to succeed. Don’t let their reputation as a blood sucker become the distinction that other remember you by.
Others are trying to change who you are for the promise of the glass pedestal. That stage is very fragile and the slightest wrong move could break it beneath your feet. Not to mention the person(s) asking you to make these sacrifices aren’t the kind of people you want to be trusting in the first place. They could be setting you up to be the pawn in a larger game designed to make you the sacrifice for their own treachery.
It’s ok to say “No thank you. That’s not who I am” and walk away as the victor. Being able to say “No” shows you’re confident and capable of standing on your own. It will actually gain you greater respect from those who are in a better position to help you later on.
Give yourself time to walk through the lessons you have set before you from spirit. Learn those lessons with an enlightened mind, body and spirit. When the time is right for the reputable offer to be made; you’ll be in the right place at the right time to accept the prize and keep it.
Those around you who have watched you change into a more enlightened being, will be excited for you. And their loyalty to you will be the greatest reward of all.
