What a year this has been. I think we can all agree that with everything that has been happening during this year, it has been energy draining, to say the least. Personally, I have been moving through the year with a lot of fear due to the pandemic, and the energy involved in the elections is always draining to me.
In spite of all of this, my guides gave me a vision to follow quite some time ago. Due to all of the uncertainty and fear, it has been hard to follow the vision. I haven’t really been doing much of anything on a consistent basis. But it is time to change all of that. I am making a commitment to begin using my cards more because they are an awesome tool for figuring out the way forward. There are other things that I am committed to doing, but for now, this is where I am going to start.
1. What am I being invited to pay attention to in the week ahead?
Nine of Swords – Sit with yourself and do no buy into the bullshit that your brain is telling you. Your brain’s main job is to keep you safe, and in order to do that, it tells you things that keep you playing small, keep you working in the same capacity that you have been in all this time. What is your brain telling you that is keeping you playing small and safe? What is it telling you that you are using to prevent you from moving forward with your dreams? There is a lot of anxiety and fear out there right now. Don’t let the messages that your brain tells you keep you from following your dreams. What is the best way for you to be in truth this week?
The moon tells us that no one knows what is going to happen moving forward, least of all your brain. Your guides have given you a goal to work toward. You can be with the uncertainty of the times without allowing your brain to run your whole life. Surrender to the uncertainty and don’t allow it to dampen your desire for the future you have been shown.
2. What card can I call upon for motivation to reach my goals as I move through the week?
King of Pentacles – You have work that you are meant to do in this world. Your true self is aching to do this work. Listen to your true self. Let it guide you as you move through your week. Commit to doing the work that you are meant to do in this world, and realize that everything else is just a vehicle to help you get there. Let your soul guide you through the process of using the vehicle and moving through the world.
3. What am I being invited to let go of?
Knight of Swords – Let go of the thought that you can’t do this. You don’t have what it takes. The Knight of Swords says that you do have what it takes. It says that your brain tells you one thing about your energy and your heart knows something else. Sit with yourself and find that part of you beyond your mind that truly knows what you are capable of.
Aletheia tells us that we are being called to reclaim our truth. Live in that truth. According to the book, “Reclaiming your own truth is a way to reclaim your vital energy, health, and sense of belonging in the world,” (Krans, 221, Archetype Guide Book from The Wild Unknown Archetypes).
What is your story? What is your truth? Speak it to yourself and begin to live by it in a place free from guilt and shame.
Wishing you a week lived in your truth.
