Thoughts Of Maya Angelou

Thoughts & Prayers

Thoughts & Prayers

A Woman Who Gave Us All Something To Think About

A statement from Wake Forest University, where Maya Angelou had been professor of American studies since 1982, said: “Dr Angelou was a national treasure whose life and teachings inspired millions around the world.”

Women of my age and older have a lot of thanks to extend to Dr. Angelou for her tireless work to bring equality to all people, regardless of race or gender; or anything else for that matter. Her work for civil rights, human rights, and women’s rights always gave us all something to think about and ponder through her poetry and words.

On May 28th, her family posted this message on Dr. Angelou’s facebook page:

Statement from Dr. Maya Angelou’s Family:
Dr. Maya Angelou passed quietly in her home before 8:00 a.m. EST. Her family is extremely grateful that her ascension was not belabored by a loss of acuity or comprehension. She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being. She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace. The family is extremely appreciative of the time we had with her and we know that she is looking down upon us with love.

There are so many tributes to her and her life, what she meant to the world, to African-Americans, to women and others. I won’t even try to put into words the legacy she leaves behind as I think it would pale in comparison to her own words and to what others have written over the past few days about her.

For my own view of Dr. Angelou, I’ll remember her for her comments on spirituality and the words she used to share her journey to finding her own path of faith. She was raised Christian, but went on a discovery to find her own essence of spiritual life. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Chariot

The Chariot

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Express your confidence and be self-assured today. You know exactly what you’re doing and you’re the expert on today’s tasks. Be humble, but proud as others look to you for advice and knowledge. Don’t second guess your ability to lead the way. You’ve got this!

Additional Insight:

Don’t second guess yourself today. You have the knowledge and expertise to be in the position you’ve been asked to take. Now stand tall and lead the way so others can learn from your experience.

Everyone reaches the level of teacher at some point in their life. For some it maybe early on because they heard a calling and started their journey from the get go. For others it may come from a lifetime of learning, experience and the hands on doing the work. Whatever your path, you’ve earned the right to be the expert in the task presented today.

Make sure you listen to those around you and give them the same respect and consideration they will afford to you. You might still learn something. But don’t be afraid to explain why this way will work and that one might not be the best solution. You don’t have to humiliate them for their ideas. Sometimes what we learn in a class room can only be implemented in the perfect situations that rarely exist in the real world. Explain that and you’ll be able to share your knowledge from the experiences you have so they can be aware of what to look out for next time they’re faced with the same issue.

Bottom line is, you are the one who has been given the task to manage the tasks of the day. You were giving that position because you’ve earned it. Whither it’s by happenstance or some boss gave you the assignment, you wouldn’t be put in this position if you weren’t ready to handle it. Now stand tall, be confident and get it done.

You can order a personal reading from Spring through the Services at Spring’s Haven. We offer both in-house and email/phone/Skype consultations. As a Ministerial organization, all our consultations are private and strictly confidential. You can find the Mystic Faerie Tarot on Amazon.
