Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Judgement

Major Arcana Judgement

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Make sure you are judging situations before you with fairness and balance. Gather all the FACTs, from all sides first. Don’t rely on others to give you third-party or second-hand information. Go to the source and find out for yourself or confirm what you’ve been told is true. The road ahead is your path to tread. Make sure you’re walking it with both responsibility and accountability, instead of foolishness. Don’t get scammed!


Additional Insight:

Don’t fall back on old baggage and make assumptions. Don’t put your own reflections into the actions playing out before you. Don’t take the word of someone else for what’s going on, if they’re not the ones directly involved.

You must become actively involved in your own life and the path you tread. Stop letting others fool you or take advantage of you with misinformation, half truths or out and out lies. You are responsible for your life and where it leads. That means you must take hold of events you’re accountable for and be responsible for knowing exactly what’s going on.

If that means calling a creditor to make sure a bill was paid, then pick up the phone. It’s your good name and credit that will be affected, not someone elses. If there’s a he said, she said rumor going around about someone you care for, then go to the source and get the story face to face. And maybe from all parties involved. You can tell a lot about the truth when you “see” it first hand. Continue reading

The 5 Minute Meditation For Balance

Take 5 Minutes To Balance Your Energy

Balancing Your Energies

Meditation in both forms of devotional and non-spiritual exercise has been shown to be beneficial for relieving stress, improving health and increasing productivity. But for many it’s more than an alternative medical approach to dealing with stress and anxiety. You can read more about the Proven Benefits of Meditation, even if you don’t include a spiritual aspect to the practice.

Too much of anything isn’t a good place to be. Living too much “up there” or “out there” can keep you from paying attention to the physical world you’re currently part of. Being flighty can create unwanted circumstances that cause you to drop things, miss things, or keep you from thinking clearly about what’s at hand or needs to get done.

Feeling weighed down, heavy or dragging across the Earth is also an extreme that can cause problems. It can pull you down into despair, sadness and create a lack of desire or energy to do anything that needs to be done. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Eight of Swords

 

Eight of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Stop throwing daggers at others. Your mood is not their fault. Calm down and talk yourself into being at peace with your emotions. It’s ok to have feelings. You’re human after all. But don’t let them get the best of you and cause you to do or say things you may regret later. Acknowledge that you have them, good, bad or indifferent. But don’t allow them to run your life today. You need to be in balance and in control to make sure you’re getting things done that need your attention.


Additional Insight:

Being overly excited or emotionally angry, is part of life. But how you feel is under your control. Don’t blame others for how you choose to be in this moment. No one “Makes” you feel this way or that. You make those choices all on your own.

But don’t be so hard on yourself for having emotions either. You’re  an incarnated spirit who is here to experience life and having emotions are part of that experience. No one can be joyfully happy all the time. It’s not realistic and it’s not something anyone can do. So stop be angry at yourself and taking it out on others.

Instead, accept your emotions and acknowledge your feelings. Focus on balancing your reactions so you don’t make bad choices in a moment of extremes, no matter which side they’re on. You can even make the wrong move when you’re overwhelmed by glee, passion or excitement. So be cautious. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Star – Inverted

 

The Star - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

A star isn’t anything special or extraordinary. Its made of rock and generates its own power from within to shine. What you nurture within yourself will be what glows for the outer world to see. Be mindful today and make sure your light illuminates courage, strength and wisdom so you can claim this day as yours. Anything is possible, if you believe it to be.


Additional Insight:

Stop looking at others and thinking you can’t have what they have in their life. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, but you don’t always know what’s going on behind their closed doors. Could be what they have in the material world is all they have. Yet you have more abundance in emotional support, health or a variety of other areas in your life that they don’t have.

Jealousy isn’t going to get you the brass ring. It’s only going to deplete your resources and take energy away from your ability to shine. It’s hard to light the sky when you’re constantly putting out your glow and choosing to stand in the shadows and darkness. Pay attention to your thoughts today!

Mindfulness is being aware and cognoscente of what you’re doing and how it resonates with your soul, spiritual mission and mental outlook. Both for a state of being and for a sense of living your beliefs and putting them into practice. It is about how you think creating how you view things, how you see what’s around you and how you react to situations and others in any given moment. Continue reading

Sunday Homily: The Strength In The Negative

Knave of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The Balance of Positive & Negative

What happens when the only things you see in your life are “negative”. Fighting, struggle, animosity and every other bad emotion or perspective seem to be prevalent and always present. Do you ask yourself what am I doing wrong? Why am I being persecuted? Why Me?

How Do You See?
As with all situations in your life,  there are two ways to see the messages present before you. Every event has a positive and negative flow. But that doesn’t necessarily mean all are good and bad at the same time.

Sometimes we forget the negative flow of energy isn’t a “bad” thing. In the pursuit of balance you must have positive and negative energies to make things work. A battery has a positive and negative side, without both you can’t power your electronics. Does that make the negative side a bad side of the battery? Should we be mean to it, or judge it harshly? No, of course not. And that’s true for the situations in our life too.

The Knave Of Swords
The tarot can be a good tool to use in the explanation of this concept. When I picked a card to share this message, the Knave of Swords came forth, so let’s take a look at what she has to share.

The first message starts with the energy of the suit. In this case the Swords. Swords represent Strength & Weakness, Endurance & Struggle, Respect & Animosity. Continue reading
