Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Swords

Five of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t allow the anxiety and stress to turn you into a weeping two faced flower. It’s ok to say “I don’t know”. It’s not something to be ashamed of. It takes a great deal of courage to ask for help and humility to admit you don’t know everything. Be cautious of those who show you one thing to your face in order to gain your compassion. They maybe stabbing you in the back, as soon as you turn around.


Additional Insight:

In today’s society emphasis is given to those who stand on their own and fight the tough battles. But no one stands alone, no matter how much they profess their accomplishment. They may have worked hard and prepared for opportunities when they arose; but some where along the line someone gave them a break or made the choice to recognize their ability.

Those who believe they’ve made it through on their own can sometimes feel entitled and look down upon those who need help at this moment in time. They can show the inner two faced nature they hold within and in doing so, undermine your efforts to fight the good fight.

Swords represent strength when viewed through the positive, but it can also be strife when expressed through the negative. This is also the lesson given to us through Humility and Confidence. Today the lessons of strength are being put to the test against the lessons of strife brought through over confidence.

Be cautious of those who hold out compassion with strings attached. Be wary that you’re not the one looking down with a confident air upon those who are facing hard times. By the grace of the Divine Universe; the struggles they face maybe yours one day. It is through humility that we offer compassion and concern. Through the eyes of oneness.

When we remember that we’re in this world together as a community, we can over come any hardship, any disagreement and any prejudiced. We can discover compassion between us and stand on the common ground we share instead of the competing hill tops. We are all connected and inter-connected to each other, the world around us and the through the Divine Universe. No matter what our differences, we are the same – simple human beings trying to make our way in the world.

Humility & Confidence – What Ego Can Teach You
The Dalai Lama on Piers Morgan Tonight April 25, 2012:
“I describe myself as a simple Buddhist monk. No more, no less. And I am one of the seven billion human being. Basically we are the same… your emotion, my emotion, your mind, my mind.., same physical. So I always look [at it] that way. We are the same.”

The 5 Minute Alignment Meditation

Aligning Your Energies To The Divine In Your Life

Meditation

Close Your Eyes & Relax

Everyone has moments when they reach their limit and feel overwhelmed. Without sorrow we cannot know happiness. But how we move through those depleting emotions determines how we move forward through them.

If you can sit down and align your thoughts and energies with the Divine in your life; you can find renewed strength to endure and persevere. Have compassion for yourself and your feelings. You have a right to feel your emotions and work through them. But all things have a balance. Too much of anything can be detrimental.

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.

Meditation in both forms 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. It’s a way of finding renewed strength on a personal and spiritual level. To open a connection between the inner self and the Divine force in that person’s life to gain inner strength to persevere and endure trials, challenges and over come those situations with the help of that greater force.  Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Swords

Five of Swords

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Strength is shown in the person who can resolve conflict without a fight. Don’t allow others to bait you into an argument that you have no part in, or simply because they are in a bad mood. Assurance can only go so far when trying to alleviate the insecurities others feel. In the end, it’s their issue to deal with. If they don’t trust you, then ask “Can they be trusted?”


Additional Insight:

What we don’t like about someone else is a reflection of ourselves. Those that have problems with trusting, are often the ones who cannot be trusted. The things they are doing behind your back are the same things they think they see you doing. Even when you’re not.

Don’t allow someone to bait you into an argument where you must defend yourself against something you haven’t done in the first place. It’s a ‘red herring’ for what’s really going on in the first place.

Don’t ignore those warning signs. You can try to assure those close to you that you’re loyal, you care and your trustworthy. But in the end it’s their own insecurities that must be changed and you cannot control that or fix it for them.

It may take today and through the weekend to work it out. But it’s better to put forth the effort now, than to let things fester and grow beneath the surface. Either you’ll find common ground and agree to help each other work it out to make lasting changes on both sides. Or it maybe time to say thank you for the time together and walk away.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Wands –

Five of Wands

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Magik and creativity share the message to: Give yourself a break. There’s enough people getting upset over things that are out of their control. They’re not directing their frustration at you. Why do you keep taking it on and piling on top of what isn’t yours to begin with? Step out of the shadows and stop thinking everything is on your shoulders and your responsibility. You owe it to yourself.


Additional Insight:

You’re putting out so much of yourself to others and not being compensated fairly for the effort. You can choose not to do it any more, or calmly express your position in hopes others will understand how they’ve been taking advantage of you. If they don’t, you have a decision to make. Don’t make it lightly.

The worst thing people do is under-value their own self-worth. Stop listening to the nay-sayers and replaying the negative comments in your head. Those messages are not for you, they are reflections of what those doing the talking feel about themselves. Give the message back to them and let them carry their own baggage.

This weekend, put yourself first. Spend time relaxing, catch up on some sleep, go for a drive and allow yourself to have a spontaneous adventure. Set some time aside for meditation, updating your grimoire or your journal. Do something for the inner you as well as the physical you.

Don’t be afraid to say “no” if someone asks you to do something you really don’t want to do. It’s ok to say “no”. If they get upset, let them know their expectations of you are on them. You have the right to put yourself first, even if it’s only now and then.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Close your eyes and focus on what’s within the crystal ball. You have the ability to align your energy with Divine Creation and create the day or dream you desire. It takes more than magik it happen though. So if you feel blocked or face an issue that you can’t seem to resolve, look within for the answer. You already know what to do, you simply have to tap into that stream of consciousness to see it.


We sometimes forget that we’re both spiritual AND physical beings. Sometimes making things happen requires a little energy from both sides to create what you need and not only what you want.

You don’t have to go it alone. Close your eyes and concentrate on that Divine creative force in your life. Whither it’s The Great Spirits, The Thunderbeings, the Goddess or “God”; that force is in your life, ready and willing to help you energize what you dream.

Make those dreams positive ones. Don’t use them to manipulate others to do something they otherwise might not do. Use them to overcome issues or resolve challenges that present themselves to bring lessons onto your path.

Remember you can, because you are One with the Divine in your life!

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

Five of Wands - Inv

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Watch for the underlying motives of the gifts you receive. They seem wonderful at first, until you’re asked to do a favor you normally wouldn’t do. It may all be innocent, but make sure you consider all the consequences before proceeding or saying yes simply out of guilt or a feeling of being indebted.


Additional Insight:

Sometimes gifts come with strings attached. It’s nice to get the attention, but the wrong attention can be worse than no attention at all. Don’t let your desperation fall into a trap. Not everyone is as kind and compassionate as you and they maybe trying to use you for their own self-centered reasons or cause.

It’s not always easy to say thank you, but you can’t accept this. But it maybe the best thing for you to do this week. Showing that you have the strength, confidence and respect for yourself will go a lot farther in attracting the right sort into your life. It will also put those who think of you as weak and vulnerable on notice to “back off”.

Before others can respect you, you must respect yourself. So give it a go and watch what happens when real positive people recognize what you have hidden beneath the surface.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Five of Pentacles

5 of Pentacles - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

You’ve worked hard all summer in your garden. You’re burning the candle at both ends and overworking yourself. While you may feel you “need” to do this, you’re using up your supply of energy and eventually your physical body will break down and force you to rest. Avoid the cold and get some rest.


Additional Insight:

Not only do you need some sleep; you need to really rest and relax. Make plans today to clear your calendar for at least 1, better 2 days of down time. Don’t set time aside to go on a hike or adventure. While that might help you release pent up stress, it will be a physical excursion that your body cannot spare right now. You need to set some time aside where you can simply chill out, lay on the couch, read a book, watch an old movie and take a nap or two…or four.

If you don’t take care of yourself physical self and your mental stress, you won’t be able to take care of business. You will lose less time and use less energy if you take this short 1 or 2 day break over the next 5 days.

Everything you’re working on will still be there and can wait for your full attention. Begin planning your down time today and you’ll be able to tie up some loose ends, organize projects for next week and feel comfortable in finding some time for YOU to relax and goof off for a day or two.

All work and no play really can make you sick. Take a little time to play….for your own good.
