Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Six of Cups

Six of Cups

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

To fill your cup, you must first make sure it’s open and facing in the right direction. Even if you’re going with the flow around you to maintain peace, you can’t take in the blessings that cross your path when you’re closed and ready for the opportunities that come. Sometimes it takes both optimism and effort to open your heart and mind to the world around you. You never know, you might actually find something new that brings excitement and passion back into your life.


 
Additional Insight:

The mind is like a parachute, it must be open to work. So too is the desire to live a life that’s upbeat and filled with joy and love. If you have built walls because of past events, you’re not only keeping yourself locked in, but you’re keeping the good things in the world out. Sometimes it’s good to remember that while your struggles may have been very hard, somewhere in the world someone else has it much worse than you do. If they can get through the day, so can you. So cast off the fear and trepidation, tear down the walls and open your heart and mind to the possibilities around you. You’ll be glad you did.

The answer might be easier to figure out than you think. We often tell people to “Follow your Heart” when making important decisions. While that might sound like good advice, it’s often the wrong thing to say. Our heart or emotions are often clouded by a variety of psychological elements. Past hurts, nagging voices in our subconscious, fear and trepidation of a potential future of pain and distress all play a role in forming our emotions and emotional responses. Continue reading
