April Wisdom: The Word Wants to Be Written

Finding your purpose or your true self doesn’t need to be difficult.

What you are is within you already.

The best way to tap into your true essence is to surrender and go with the flow. Stop trying to force things through action and hustle, and instead trust that what is meant to find you will, what is meant to happen will.

The desires of your heart are given to you for a reason – they are divine guideposts lighting the way along your soul’s path.

The first step to becoming your TRUE self is to accept who you are. Give yourself permission to be who you are – unapologetically. Love yourself, “flaws” and all.

Acceptance of self will lead to acceptance of your most heartfelt dreams and desires. What calls to you and stirs your passion is MEANT for you.

It is time to claim yourself, and your dreams, in love.

Weekly Wisdom: You Got the Love

This week’s wisdom is all about love, relationships, codependency, and boundaries.

Although it is both beautiful and pure to see love in all people and situations, you must first be sure to love YOURSELF, and from there establish healthy boundaries and relationships with others.

Take inventory of your current relationships, whether romantic, platonic, work related, etc.

Where do you need to establish healthier boundaries?

Are there relationships where you find yourself being codependent and losing your sense of self?

Or perhaps you’re in a dynamic where you give more than you receive?

Maybe there’s a relationship in your life that drives anxiety and stress due to a lack of communication or consideration for each other?

It’s time to take energetic inventory of your relationships, and to reassess any dynamics that make you feel anxious, codependent, or unsafe to be yourself.

And always remember – the love you seek from others is one you can also find within yourself.

Weekly Wisdom: Fall Into My Arms

This week’s card is all about surrendering to the extremes in life.

(Liiiike seriously, I can’t make this shit up lol.)

As humans, it can be easy to fall into attachment to how things are, how things should be, and how things could be.

We often see things as either good or bad.

And when we struggle, it can be easy to fall into a victim mentality.

When something goes wrong or is bad, we see it as punishment. Versus when something is good or goes well, we see it as reward.

However this card reminds us that the extremes of life, whether good or bad, are the very reason we are here.

We are here to live and experience, and not all of that will be good, and that’s okay. That is to be expected.

So in those times of fear, doubt, anxiety, and worry (like now), remember that you are not alone. You always have two constant companions – your deeply wise and infinite soul, and source.

Weekly Wisdom: The Great Severing

This week’s card pull is a shadow card that is meant to help us release anger, fear, and pain that may be blocking us from love.

One line from the card description really jumped out at me, especially with what is going on in the world right now with the coronavirus:

“It we aren’t careful, before long we’ll see the world as a scary, dangerous place where fear and anxiety roam free.”

Pretty timely, eh??

As humans, we’re faced with so much every single day that can make it super hard to stay aligned with love and light.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in our pain and anger. It’s easy to spin stories on why others, or the world in general, may be out to get us. It’s EASY to block love and light from our lives.

But things that are usually the most difficult often have the best payoff.

Bring your awareness to the difficulty and pain in your life and around you. Allow yourself to feel it, know that it is valid, and move through it.

And then let love in. Find your way back to your truth, your HIGHEST truth, which doesn’t revel in fear and hardship, but in love, light, and community.

Find a way now, especially now, to have love and compassion for others, and yourself. Cause whether or not we like to admit it, or it feels like it at the moment, we really are all in this together.

Sending you all so much love and light this week and always <3

Weekly Wisdom: Soul Retrieval

Soul retrieval aids you in recovering a part of yourself that you have lost.

You are whole and no longer fragmented.

It is time to release old wounds and move forward.

If you feel as though you have compromised in a way that is not aligned with your true self and desires, it is time to course correct.

Honor yourself and your integrity, and do not sacrifice it for the good of someone else.

The best thing you can do for others, and for the world in general, is to be who you truly are, unapologetically.

Oracle & Tarot Cards

cardsblog.jpg

I’ve been into oracle cards for a while, and have also gotten into tarot within the past couple of years. As I explore different spiritual practices and tools, it’s fun to see what truly resonates with me, and what innate skills I have.

Hint: cards is one of them 😉

So if you’re not into cards or are a newb, you may not know the difference between oracle cards vs. tarot (cause I didn’t when I first started using them lol). Here’s the gist:

Oracle cards are less structured than tarot, and the types of cards and meanings can be wide and ranging and basically up to the creator of the deck.

Tarot, on the other hand, is more structured. There’s 78 cards in a deck, and the deck is split into major arcana (think major life milestones, bigger picture) vs. minor arcana cards (think daily, everyday moments or details). The minor arcana makes up the majority of the deck, and is split into four suits: cups, pentacles, swords, and wands.

TLDR: oracle cards have prescribed meanings, and tarot needs to be interpreted.

I use both types of cards in various ways, but as I develop my daily rituals and practices, I notice that I tend to resonate more with oracle cards and use them more than tarot. I use them for weekly wisdom, monthly wisdom, and various and daily pulls and spreads whenever I feel called. I also frequently feel called to randomly pull cards for others. For example, last Monday, I was calling it Mystical Messages Monday because spirit was nudging me to pull and interpret cards for a few people.

These are my favorite oracle decks:

Sacred Rebels Oracle Deck by Alana Fairchild

The Good Tarot by Colette Baron-Reid

The Psychic Tarot Oracle Cards by John Holland

And this is my favorite tarot deck and tarot guide:

Golden Universal Tarot Deck and The Ultimate Guide to Tarot Card Readings by Brigit Esselmont

If you’re interested in cards, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the decks above. What I like to do is research decks online and pick the ones that call to me. Sometimes you may get a new deck and realize you just don’t have a connection with it and you need to find something else. That happened to me when I was picking my traditional tarot deck. I went with the widely used and recommended Rider Waite tarot deck and felt NO connection to it at all. I eventually heard of the golden universal deck, and felt very drawn to it, and since getting it, it definitely works waaaay better for me.

I’d love to know if you have a favorite deck to work with, or any recommendations around decks, spreads, guidebooks, and the like. Comment below to share 🙂

This card is all about stepping into your soul’s divine purpose and mission for this lifetime.

If you feel called toward something, it is part of your divine path.

Each of us has unique gifts, talents, and messages to share in this lifetime. We each have a unique journey to navigate.

Remember that your soul is infinite and all knowing and chose to come into this life to experience all of the situations, struggles, wins, ups, and downs that make up your human experience.

These are the lessons your soul was craving. This is the path your soul chose to walk along.

This card is also confirmation that if you’ve felt drawn to a project, passion, pursuit, or adventure, it is meant for you, so get it 😉

March Wisdom: The Rainmaker

The Rainmaker is a master of manifestation. It speaks to the power of co-creation, especially when used with integrity.

This card is a message to create something new in your life, using what is already around you and within your day to day experience.

There are seeds that were planted in the past, and now it is time to harvest them.

Your external world is a mirror of your internal world. If you are seeking change or transformation in your external world, you must first go within and shift your internal intention and way of being.

Weekly Wisdom: Temptation

Although this world, and this life, is your playground, you must not become attached to outcomes or the material world.

This card is a reminder for you to check in with yourself and ask:

1) Are you too focused on the material right now?

2) Are you getting swept up in excess?

3) Do you find yourself falling into addictive behavior?

4) Are you obsessed with how things “should” go and then disappointed when the outcome does not meet your expectations?

It’s time to stop and reflect on how you are showing up right now in your life.

If you find yourself falling into the throes of temptation and attachment – ask yourself why.

What are you REALLY seeking right now?

And how can you fulfill that need within yourself, instead of looking outside of yourself and to the material world?

Always know that you have everything you need within you <3

Weekly Wisdom: Alchemical Mutation

Your spiritual growth is changing your mind, body, and soul.

These changes are part of your higher awakening and will usher in new energies, experiences, and beliefs into your life.

The body changes as light enters.

You may feel this physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually. You may sense a new lightness to your being, both your physical vessel, and how you show up in the world.

This transformation will bring you much satisfaction and joy; however it may also bring you challenges.

The mind does not always (if ever, let’s be real) enjoy change. It may resist and fight, causing you to feel worn down and hopeless.

Or your challenges may be more physical and results of the new lightness and energy that is entering your being now. You may feel sick or achey. You may experience increased sensitivity to external stimuli.

Know that whatever you experience, be it “good” or “bad,” is part of your journey and your spiritual growth.

Also know that you have the power to ease this alchemical mutation for yourself. Up level your self-care. Allow yourself time and space to rest and replenish your energy. Do what feels GOOD, and release what feels like a to do.

This is a time for change and up leveling, be it spiritual and/or physical. Allow it to be whatever it is meant to be for you personally, and take extra care with yourself during this time.
