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

Four of Cups Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Shake out the creativity and inspiration from beneath the surface and you’ll find a solution to the communication problems. No one is listening. It’s hard to hear what each other is saying when you’re being stubborn and have your ears closed. You can spend the day/weekend in silence, or act like adults and talk it out.

Additional Insight:

You might hear what’s being “yelled”, but you’re not listening to what’s being said. And neither are they. Yelling only makes things worse and causes people to say things they don’t mean in order to hurt each other. It’s a pointless use of energy.

Stop yelling and start listening. You’re the one who keeps saying you want to work on things and change them for the better. Yet you’re still facing each issue with the same chip on your shoulder. Knock it off; you’re not perfect and yet you’re expecting others to be infallible.

If you’re going to claim to walk a spiritual path and be a spiritual person then you must live up to your talk. Other wise you’re only spinning your wheels and fooling yourself. So shut up, sit down, and listen to what’s being said. There is fear and anxiety behind the words being spoken and you have the ability to help ease those emotions. Both in them and in yourself!

The Art Of Communication Part I

How We Listen and Hear

Natural CommunicationCommunication is essential for every species on Mother Earth. It’s used for organizing a hunt for food, locating group members, mating, in play and in some cases for singing. No matter what the species, some form of communication is going on through vocalization and body language. Some animals may not ‘vocalize’ in the way we think of it, using sound vibration such as a cricket’s legs or lobster’s claws. But clicking, tweeting, howling or with words, communication is still going on all around us. The more complex the communication, the more room there is for miscommunication.

Which brings us to humans. Thanks to our ability to rationalize, we have often made a mess of communicating with others. We start at an early age trying to decipher tone and body language. We realize quickly what love, compassion, laughter and anger sound like. But even when we’re young it can be hard to distinguish between anger and frustration or compassion and love. Our elementary school teachers are often good at showing compassion, but many young children can’t distinguish that kindness from love, in the similar form that we receive from our parents. And body language is totally confusing with all of its subtleties, no matter what age you are. So we use our rationalization to read into what we hear or see and try to interpret the communication the best we can. Continue reading
