Clearing The Negative and Setting Protection

Everyone has the ability to feel subtle energies around them. I’m sure you can think of a time when you walked into a room where an argument had been happening, feeling the anger or angst. Maybe you’ve even shared a story with a friend saying “You could cut the tension with a knife”.

You don’t have to be psychic or overly sensitive to the energies around you for this type of event to happen. It’s part of our natural instincts as living animals. Human animals maybe, but we still have the ability to sense what’s around us.

In today’s world meditation is viewed from two perspectives, from the spiritual form of enlightenment and becoming one with spirit. Or through the eyes of mainstream medicine as a non-denominational practice that can relieve stress. If a non-denominational practice interests you, try the 5 Minute Meditation for bringing in a little relaxation and escape from the anxieties around you.

A 5 Year Anniversary

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

How Things Have Changed

Five years ago on this very day, December 1st, I began pulling a tarot card and sharing a message for your daily meditation. The messages for those first cards were very short and sweet. No additional insight was given. It was simply my way to bring attention to my new spiritual business through social media and advertising. How those initial messages have changed.

Dec. 1, 2009
Queen of Wands
Today is filled with creative magik, communication and oversight.

It wasn’t until March 2010 that the daily message began to expand on the initial message of the cards to add at least one more sentence to put the images into context. By May 2010 I had settled into sharing a daily card and finally became more comfortable with divining messages for a public preview.

It wasn’t until 2012 that I began expanding on the initial message posted on Spring’s Haven here on my blog. So there’s a few more years to go before that milestone comes around.

But this one is a big one to acknowledge. And I’m so grateful for the years of kind and supportive feedback I’ve received from everyone who has shared their thoughts. Your messages really do help and I’m honored you take the time to write your words and share your perspectives. 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: Five of Wands

Five of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You may receive a surprise today. Be careful that it doesn’t have strings attached. You may not want to pay the price for what, on the surface, looks like a very nice gift. Consider the source and  don’t be afraid of saying “no thank you”.


Additional Insight:

If you want to give a gift, then use your compassion to give it. But don’t put strings or attach restrictions to it. It’s not really a gift that way and it’s not fair to the person you claim to be helping out.

Today people have a great deal of stress and anxiety on their shoulders. You may not know exactly what they’re going through. You might listen to their story, but don’t assume they’re telling you everything there is to know. They could be embarrassed, over burdened or trying to control the emotions they feel in order to “hold it together”.

Not everyone holds the same priorities as you do. It might be more important for someone to spend that $20 gift on gas to get their child to and from school, than it is for the gallon of milk and groceries you intended it to be used for.

Not everyone likes the same things you do. There maybe a few things in that bag of groceries that they don’t like or won’t use. Don’t be offended. You made the effort and that kindness will be rewarded. If not today, then at some other time in this life or the next.

If you’re the one receiving the gift, don’t feel you must bend your priorities to the will of others. If they are giving you something, be gracious and appreciative. But if you feel you can’t accommodate their demands, than say no. There will be other opportunities coming your way. You don’t have to sacrifice your self-worth, or morals to appease the will of others.

5 Minute Clearing & Healing Meditation

Clearing The Negative & Healing From Within

Meditation

Close Your Eyes & Relax

We all go through times of negative self talk. Most of us are often our own worst critics. When we buy into these destructive self assessments we open a door that attracts more negativity into our world. And often times that begins a the snowball effect, rolling down hill getting larger and more overwhelming.

But it’s not enough to simply stop the negative thinking, or taking in the negativity from others. We often create a void that wants to be filled with something. If we let it be, it more often than not becomes filled with more or returning negativity.

The easiest way to correct this problem is to fill the void with beneficial energy that will help you heal from within and promote a sense of well being through your day, week, month and life.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Pentacles – Inverted

5 of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Worry and sadness are emotions that attract negativity. If you continue to see what you don’t have you will stay in a state of lack. Stop the self-pity and start walking your talk! Giving your beliefs lip service will not serve your path or your future. Pull in change for the better by living the principles you preach to others!


Additional Insight:

Walking Your Talk is more important than you may realize. Spouting wisdom and preaching to others does nothing to serve your spirit if you don’t practice what you preach.

Stop criticizing others for their negativity. Doing so expresses negativity of your own. Claiming you have the knowledge of spirit and not living that wisdom sets you up as a hypocrite. It’s not enough to go to church on Sunday, or practice a ritual on Saturday and be done with spirit. You must put those wisdom’s into practice each and every day, during each and every moment.

Don’t claim to be something you’re not, if you’re not willing to walk the talk. Wisdom and titles are earned, not taken. It doesn’t matter if you claim to be a Priest/Priestess/Shaman or a person who walks in the positive light of love and compassion. If you don’t express those principles throughout your day, you’re making claims that you’re not keeping.

Start your mornings with a solemn prayer that aligns your thoughts and actions with your spiritual beliefs. See yourself living by the teachings you hold dear. Express your compassion for others by a touch of the hand on their shoulder, a pat on the back or a comforting caress of their hand. Doing so will help your path and fill your baskets to the brim with abundance of spirit, compassion and more.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Cups – Inverted

Five Of Cups-Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Be careful over the weekend not to let your emotions get the best of you. You’re liable to let the self-pity create an emotional situation that isn’t warranted. Don’t try false means to improve your out look either. Keep your abundance in your cups for safe keeping and find other ways to turn that gloomy mood around.


Additional Insight:

It’s easy to allow the clouds to get to you and impact your emotions and mood. Consider alternatives to turning things around that don’t involve shopping or quick fix meaningless gratification. Those spending spree’s may be the worst answer to your problem. Now is not the time to spring for a big party and invite everyone you know to wipe out the cupboards.

It’s easy to shut yourself inside because it’s cold outside. But getting out in the fresh air is probably one of the best things you can do for your mood. Up here in the northern hemisphere – bundle up and go for walk. The human race spent 80% of its time outside in the past, there’s no reason you can’t get out there today. Down in the southern hemisphere you can grab an umbrella and still get outside.

Take a walk, listen to the wind floating between the leaves and playing nature’s song. Be quiet and you’ll be able to hear the trees singing along. You might catch the sound of squirrels playing or you might see something you’ve never dreamed of experiencing. Let Mother Nature show you the wonders of her magikal world and the beauty of her seasons. She has a lot to share and much of it will make you smile.

If you’re really in a place where you can’t get out, talk to your local pharmacy about acquiring a lamp that helps with Seasonal Affective Disorder (not enough sun light). Bring the sun inside and trick your eyes out of the dark gloom. Or force yourself to smile, even though you don’t feel like it. It really does change your mood around. Stand in front of your mirror, with the lights on and say “I love you”. If you can’t do that to your own reflection, how are other people going to see that you are worth loving!

Come on! Snap out of it! The world really isn’t against you as much as you’re making it out to be.  You decide what mood you want to be in, so decide to make it a calm content one if you can’t make it a smiling happy one. So stop it and get off your butt and make the day into what YOU want it to be!
