Today's Tarot Tip for November 28th 2018
Many of my clients read the Tarot or Oracle decks for themselves for self insight or other reasons. You don't have to be a practicing psychic to read them, you just need intuition and insight, and if you're already acquainted with decks and oracles, it means you have already honed those instincts.
Tarot is by no means " only for Psychics". In fact I'm sure you know it was developed as a card game in the 15th century . It wasn't until "modern times" (late 19th c) that Tarot became known for divination. . When I first started learning Tarot , back when our computers were at Dos. with a little green prompt - I used to gain entrance into a group I found on the web that you could not ask questions in, or announce your presence in, or do a thing but observe until you had watched and listened for 3 months. They were a group of purists who believed Tarot was simply "Tarot" and to use it for divination was not what it was intended for. Their view of Psychic Tarot Readers wasn't kind. I learned a great deal from them, but I don't believe in hard and set rules myself.
Psychic or just a good tarot reader, when we are reading Tarot it is often going to appear alarming when certain cards come up. I don't know what your personal preference is regarding reversals but I use them. Right side up means one thing to me, reversed means quite another. It doesn't always mean the opposite by any means.
I do understand that figuring out what a reversal means for a situation can be confusing. Just like we learn the meanings ( several different meanings) for up-right cards, we also learn the meanings ( several of them) for reversed cards. There are so many different situations in life, why would 78 cards be representative of them all?
If you are unsure or uncomfortable with reversals and they pop up you can take note that they did pop up reversed and make a note of it . It could simply indicate blocked energy in that card. If you don't believe reversals should ever be used - ignore my definition of reversals.
When a card comes up that looks scary like the tower (reversed ) , and I have no idea what that means, Ill throw a card to the left, and a card to the right, and then I will throw a card almost on top of the tower as the final outcome.
I am clarifying the entire situation from the recent past, to the near future to the final outcome to help me better understand what the tower reversed means to me. The following is one way I can read this. How you are going to read this , of course,
so -to the left is the 7 of pents upright- to the right is the ten of pents reversed and the final outcome is the five of pentacles reversed There are many meanings for this example. Forgive my using all pentacles and making this easy , but here is what I mean. The tower to me , signified this is a situation that is waiting to blow up on me , it just hasn't done so yet. ( The reversed card) . The tower being reversed is telling me I just keep sweeping this under the rug but that whatever this situation is I'm reading about , needs to be addressed. Of course, I didn't expect to see the tower so I don't really know what it was I was going to be looking for. The card to my left in the past told me that I had some reserve from something I had done and while nothing else had come in, I though I was okay, but the card to the right ( the future) is the ten of pents reversed, which is telling me a financial establishment, or my financial situation is upside down and Id better check it now because the outcome at best is the five of pents reversed. The five of pents reversed tells me that I may be able to salvage not bouncing a check or I may get something else in to cushion it, but I am right on the verge of eviction and better address my precarious situation.
The Tarot can appear to be alarming. I am not saying to ignore cards like that. I'm saying that it all has to be tempered with surrounding cards, and whatever else may be affecting us at the moment too.
A lot of people think that Oracles are fine for reflection but not readings. I honestly believe that it has more to do about preference and what you were taught with. You're using the exact same intuitive muscles for both. Everyone is psychic. Everyone. I have been to workshops where everyday people come in, just to open up to new things and have never done anything like psychic work. Within a few hours after being teamed up with a partner they have been able to get accurate visuals of what someone is thinking. Everything is part of a reading. Even being distracted when you are reading for yourself is a tip. Its to alert you that you may have too much going on and you're being pulled in too many directions.
People can take outcomes from a reading to mean that something has to end a certain way. Please remember that what we are doing is taking a peek into the current shape of where someone's thoughts, feelings , and some of the things that may be going on in their lives at the present time. Sure we may be able to tell what will happen down the road a bit but not everything is written in stone.
We really do get to respond any way we choose to, and we do get to change our course and mind at any moment.
That is what is meant by living in the moment. Too much looking, and too much trying to figure out the future can ruin a good thing. So, if you do it, do it -and leave room for the miracle of the moment too.
How many of us secretly feel as if we were born in the wrong time- or missed the memo on what was important in life and how to get it? How many of us look around at all the things everyone else does and think " where do they get the money , where do they get the time, why don't I have all those friends?". Why don't I look, feel, live and breeze through my life that way? Why am I getting divorced from my second wife, haven't gotten a raise in 3 years, my 2 oldest kids refuse to talk to me and I've gained 20 pounds in six months?
Because we are dooming ourselves to failure every day of our lives when we pit our overall accomplishments to personality /ego standards. Our personality is the costume we chose to wear at the ball in this life. It suits us in achieving our soul goals in this lifetime. We have a specific and unique way of viewing the world and mirroring it back. Our ego is meshed with our personality and it's job is to keep us as readily poised for fight or flight as possible. The ego had to be instilled for us to believe in separation between ourselves and a supreme source. Without an egoistic personality we would not have been able to carry out any sort of individual lives . We would have died instantly because we would have had the knowledge that human beings were all the same person, and at one with animals, sand, sky, water and land. There would have been no reason to create , invent, strive or learn. We would have had only abundance, all knowledge and know nothing other than love.
We would have had no survival instinct. Knowing simply that none was needed. That the body we came in, was as easily disposed of as falling asleep.
Whether one is spiritual or religious, most everyone in the two categories believe in a higher force. Today most everyone believe that source is loving , not punishing. Human beings are astounding. Forget about the physical miracle of the working body which is impossible to contemplate- forget about the human brain which is the most perfect organ in the universe we know , how do we explain our urging to love, heal, empathize and care for others? Why do we also desire to hurt , abuse or kill as well?
Do you think with our abilities to create works of art and beauty that our purpose was to go to a box and sit for 8 hours so we could earn 6 figures and take snapshots of dinner on Saturday to upload on social media?
We came here for one reason.
All we know where we really reside is love and oneness. One mind. Always. l creating. Now. Now. There is no time. No past, no future. The present isn't even a concept in the way we think of it now. When I had my NDE the present was simply "now". We came here to be given the gift of creation and free will . To experience. No matter what we chose to experience. We need to learn how to choose the experience we want. And we are. We did not come here to be financially successful. Or to have more friends than our friends. Or to take another selfie. Or go to Belize.
We chose to experience that which we were not , in order to learn to choose who and what we are once again.
Our soul does not know jealousy. Our soul doesn't know fear, or lack. It doesn't recognize difference and evil is only pretending there is no "us". No "God".
Stop looking at the things that trigger feelings of worthlessness for you. Even the posters don't feel that good about them. If you need to post a selfie every other day how secure can you really be? I want you to close your eyes and breathe. Think about who you were 5 years or a year ago. Think of the qualities you have now that you didn't have then. Think of the person you hoped you would be way back then. Don't think of what you would have, or where you would be in terms of things or places. Think of the kind of person you would be. I know without a doubt that you have turned out to be, so far, someone of inner worth. That is what we are here to do. <3
