Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Strength

Strength

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Find Strength in the compassion and love around you. Allow healing to begin from within. Don’t push others away and try to walk this road alone. It’s too easy to become lost and give up. It’s to easy to fall into the darkness and become consumed by despair. It’s hard to remember that you’re not the only one hurting. But try to share the compassion you receive. Others need it too.


Additional Insight:

I’m surprised by this card today, yet it’s so appropriate on so many levels. There are many who are facing trials both great and small today. It’s easy to become overwhelmed and stressed out by hardships no matter what they are. What you think is a trivial thing could be the very last straw dropped on someone’s back and they can no longer carry all the weight that built up over the last few days, months or even years.

In those times of struggle we need to be there for each other. We need to listen and share in the compassion and love around us. There’s something to be said for sharing the tears of pain and helping each other through the darkness of sorrow.

Yes some struggles are more dire than others. Some run deeper and some hit the very essence of our soul. But all deserve kindness, support and consideration. Whither it be spending an extra moment of your time to help someone in need, giving a hug to lift someone up or reassuring someone close to you that you’re there by their side to lean on, all acts of compassion can ease someone’s spirit. And it can even help ease your own.

Let them cry, let them scream, hold their hand and endure or share the release of emotion. Could be they’ll be there for you one day. Helping you to stand and not runaway into the depths of the darkness and solitude.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Strength – Inverted

Strength Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Stay warm and covered up. The blah feeling of a cold will subside soon enough. Don’t over do it today. Focus on the little things that need to get done. You’ll knock them out one after the other and have a much more productive day than you thought you might have. But don’t over do it. You’re already burning the candle at both ends. Exerting more energy than you have to could cause a mild discomfort to become a full blown cold or bigger issue. Take it easy today!


Additional Insight:

You don’t need to make more work for yourself, you already have enough on your plate. But you’re letting all the little things pile up and causing you to feel overwhelmed. There’s no need for that.

Today is a perfect day to prioritize your To Do list by size and then by due date. Start with tackling all the little things that will clear your desk and help to relieve some of the stress on your shoulders.

The more you knock off the little things the more time you’ll find for the big imperative projects. Like yesterday, sometimes you have to slow down in order to go fast and get things done.

Sunday’s Homliy – Don’t Let Worry Make You Weary

Find Your Strength Within

The Challenges Of Faith and Adversity

Worry: to torment oneself with or suffer from disturbing thoughts; fret.
Weariness – to make or become discontented or impatient, especially by the long continuance of something, draining

This homily was inspired by a sermon given by Joel Olsteen. I might be pagan, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the words of other ministers from other faiths. Open you mind and release the dislike, hate or negative perceptions of others in the world. You never know, you might find something that inspires you.

Everyone faces challenges in their life. Some challenges are greater than others, some face greater suffering by the standards of society, some are victims of circumstance and some have made choices of their own that create the struggle. Whatever your story is, there are three things to remember when facing the challenges of adversity in your life:

  1. Someone in the world does have it worse than you.
  2. You create, what you think.
  3. You are never alone.

If you can remember these three things, you have the strength to endure and face the challenges in your life. You can overcome adversity, learn from your experiences and grow toward enlightenment. You can become one with your own inner spirit and merge your thinking with the Divine Consciousness in your life and create what you desire. You can implement your beliefs into your daily life and begin Walking Your Talk© through: Continue reading

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Many are feeling drained in all areas of mind/body/spirit. It has been a trying week on all levels, but much work has been accomplished. You’ve made it through, now it’s time to relax. Spend the afternoon soaking up some sun, floating in the water, or simply sitting in a park and watching the world move about. Allow your stress to leave your body, relax for the remainder of the weekend and escape the day to day grind. You deserve it!



It’s important to escape the stress of life now and then. If for no other reason than to replenish your energy to fight again another day. This weekend take time for YOU and relax. Failing to do so will cause you to worry yourself sick.

Spend the afternoon with good friends and enjoy some much needed down time. Share a meal, a bottle of wine or just relax on the porch or deck and soak in the calm serenity of nature around you. This weekend is a great time to journey to a park and walk through the trees, or sit on a bench and watch the birds play. Find something that you will enjoy to take your mind off the stresses of this past week. Boost your energy with some light meditation. Watch a good movie or read a good book. Let your mind wander through dreams and desires and truly escape the worry for a few days.

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

The battles this week have zapped all your energy and worn you down. Take time to replenish your mind, body and spirit. Sleep in this weekend, find an adventure to go on and get away from the stress and anxiety. There are plenty of free things to do around your town. A walk in the park, a picnic, a trip to the local museum, or a community gathering. Find something that gets your mind off things; even if it’s only for a few hours.


Additional Insight:

You’ve gone through a great number of battles in the past couple of weeks. Big and small, part of your world or from others dragging you into their world have all taken their toll. At some point your spirit needs a break and a chance to rest and recuperate.

For today and this weekend, take time to relax for your mind, body and spirit. Get physical rest for your body. Go out and enjoy the late spring weather at a local park for your mind. Take a little time to sit and meditate on your inner self and your connection to the Divine force in your life for you soul.  These three little exercises will help you release your own anxiety and stress more than you might realize.

The big message for today and this weekend….Shut out the negative world and focus on YOU.

The Seven Point Guide to Self Fulfillment

Wisdom From The Dalai Lama

14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso

Last night (4/25/2012) on Piers Morgan Tonight, Piers interviewed the Dalai Lama. Just because I’m pagan doesn’t mean I can’t learn from and appreciate teachings and wisdom from those of other faiths. And everyone can learn much from the Dalai Lama. It was an excellent and fascinating interview, perhaps the best interview of the Dalai Lama I’ve ever seen.

His honesty is so refreshing in this time of “spin” and out right lies from political leaders, celebrities, and yes even from the spiritual community itself. His optimism is inspiring and by itself can give one hope for a better world. What struck me the most was that he isn’t so optimistic as to be delusional about what can be attainable. He’s much more of a realist than I had ever thought someone in his position could be. And that impressed the heck out of me!

At the end of the show, Piers tells his viewers that here in America we spend $11 billion on the self help and self improvement industry. We spend so much time looking outside ourselves to find happiness, that we forget to look within our own selves, in our actions and our practices. But the Dalai Lama has a cheaper way of finding happiness.

Here are the Dalai Lama’s words of wisdom in his 7 Point Guide to Self Fulfillment:  Continue reading

Forgiveness Empowers The Self

Looking Back

Looking Back & Letting Go

Forgiveness is something you do for yourself, not for others. – Unknown

You cannot change the past, but you can change the way you allow the past to affect your present and your future. ~ Springwolf

~

Some times to change the present and improve the future, you must forgive the past and release the prisoner that has been held captive within. ~ Springwolf

~

Forgiveness is a sign of strength and self-love. Hatred is a sign of weakness and fear. ~ Springwolf
