Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Two of Pentacles

Two of Penacles

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You have an awful lot going on with your finances. The more you look at it with worry and trepidation, the more you’ll create lack instead of abundance. Time to put your thoughts behind your goals and let go of the fear. Abundance is here and you’re going to be better off than you thought. Stop worrying already!

Additional Insight:

All the work you have been doing isn’t keeping you stuck in the mud or spinning your wheels, struggling to survive. Though it may feel like it. There has been movement, small and large, though you may not have seen all the work going on behind the scenes.

You and your partner (personal or business), have been planting and nurturing your garden all year. Now you’re not only seeing the prosperity of your garden, but you should be feeling its abundant change as well. That is, if you can allow yourself to relax enough from the disabling fear and allow it to come forth.

As you fill up your fall baskets and get ready for winter, don’t look at this as a temporary thing. That’s still expressing an amount of worry and a perspective of lack. That’s only going to create a self fulfilling prophecy. Remember to imagine every thing that comes your way and adds to your winter stores as an abundant reward for your hard work. View it three times the size than it is and give it energy to grow three times larger when it comes back to you.

What Are The Legal Things To Consider

So you have received your ordination and you’re ready to start-up your Church, Spiritual Center or Professional Services Business. Now what? How do you get started and how do you define your practice?

Start with the first step; registering as an ordained minister. Doing that is separate from defining a Church or Business. Each state is different, but you will register yourself as a Minister within the county you live in, or the county you will be practicing your ministry in.

Once you are registered in your county, you are registered for the entire state. But not for any other state. Being a Licensed Minister, authorized to conduct weddings, is a state by state thing. You generally can’t register in a state you don’t have residence in. I am registered in Virginia. But I have a lot of family in North Carolina, friends in Maryland and more family in Tennessee. If I’m asked to officiate a wedding in one of those states or any other state, it’s easy enough to apply for temporary recognition.

Each state allows for temporary registration for a specific day. Usually the day of the wedding and with the county where the wedding is being held. You should do this 10 to 15 days prior to the service, or earlier if possible. Check with the state you’re going to. Some have requirements for when you can or must register. But you don’t want to wait till the wedding arrives and find out you can’t because you waited too long. Continue reading
