Spiritual Tarot and Guidance ~ Sacred Journey

Hi everyone ~ this reading is for the 12th ~ 18th September 2021, but I trust as always that whenever it finds you that the Spiritual & Angelic Realms will have a message for you in this reading that also applies at that time.

I apologise for this reading being a little late. The reason is that I have received some bad news over the past few days that has really “knocked me back”. I have been told by my heart consultant that I have to have a triple heart bypass. Those that know me and follow me will know that I have coronary heart disease. It has worsened and therefore need the operation.

I will try to keep posting the messages as often as I can but there may a period when I am unable too. I have no set time or date for operation as yet and have more tests and scans to go through. I will keep you informed. Thank you for your support.

Our first card for this weeks message from the spiritual and angelic realms is Change & the message on the card is: “I understand that nothing can grow or evolve without movement” We all know this to be true, but how many of us try to fight it?

Change is growth but so many of us fear the even the thought of it. Often we are going into the unknown, unsure how things will work out. But we must understand that life happens and that it’s supposed to happen. Without change we have stagnation, life cannot move forward, no lessons can be learned, no experienced can be had, our souls path cannot be completed.

Our next message came through the card of Liberation. Again this card also can speak of the need for change. Often we cling to what some call “the norm”, we become attached to habits, to people, to places, we do things out of habit. However life even though we may not realise it is always in momentum. It is always changing and moving around us, even if it doesn’t directly affect us, it’s happening and there is nothing we can do to stop it.

So the best thing we can do is accept it, after all some changes are for the best even though we may not feel it or realise it at the time. The message from the spiritual and angelic realms is to “Liberate” ourselves and break free from the fear and anxiety that can come with change. Accept that change is a necessary part of life, accept it and calm the sense of panic that can rise inside us. Look to the lesson that is there to be learned, that will probably serve us well in the future.

I’m sure that you can now see the “theme” of the message from the spiritual and angelic realms that is coming through for this week. Our next card was Sacred Journey. The message here is reminding us that we all have our own individual path to walk . A path that is often full of it’s twists and turns, and with it, change. But as we learn, grow and understand the challenges that we face, it also brings us the Liberation that our soul needs to continue on it’s journey.

We are all on our own individual Sacred Journey. We have the family we are born in to, we have close friends, acquaintances that can also become our teachers. Each play their part on our journey. All of them help us to learn the lessons that we are here to learn.

They also bring with them change both good and bad. But they also help with the liberation of our soul as we grow and change through the drama that is created. This also helps us a we deepen our understanding of one most important elements of all.. and that is LOVE.

This then brings us nicely to our final card “Lost Love”. This card although you may not at first realise it, is a card of healing. When we lose someone whether it is a partner, mother, father, family member or close friend in some way, it also brings with it not only the pain of loss but also of change. Life will never be the same again, what will we do now?

The only thing that we can do is accept the truth of what is, let the emotions flow over and through us, We may not be able to accept it at the time, but everything truly does happen for a reason. The only thing we can do is to surrender to the emotions and allow the healing to take place.

Life is an eternal endless cycle of change, love, lessons to be learned and experiences to be had. As we walk our path our soul becomes more liberated as we continue on our own Sacred Journey.

Until next time… Please take care and stay safe.

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance ~ A Hidden Gift

Hi everyone ~ this reading is for the 22nd ~ 28th August 2021, but I trust as always that whenever it finds you that the Spiritual & Angelic realms will have a message for you in this reading that also applies at that time.

The theme behind the message from the spiritual and angelic realms for this week I feel is to reinforce the message of last weeks reading which was the need to trust ourselves and our intuition more, listening and trusting more the inner voice that tries to guide us, the gut feeling we get when something just doesn’t feel right. (If you didn’t get the opportunity to read last weeks reading you can find it here: https://medium2spirit.blog/2021/08/13/spiritual-tarot-guidance-shine-your-light/

I say this because our first card drawn this week come from the Gaia Oracle Deck and it is card the card A Hidden Gift. Through this card I feel that the spiritual and angelic realms are acknowledging the pain of loss and sadness that so many of us are going through at present which is worldwide and far more prevalent than we would normally be expected to deal with.

They bring with it a message that is both difficult to give, to hear and accept. The message is that when we lose someone or something that we love and are deeply attached to, it also brings with is not just the feeling of loss but also the fear of change. It is a part of our human nature to fear the change and sadness that accompanies the loss of something or someone we loved so much.

The message they bring to us is that with with loss and change comes an ending and therefore a new beginning. Nothing is ever truly lost, it simply transforms into something new, just as we leave our earthly body when it is our time to leave this world and start a bright new beginning as we return to our true home, The Spirit World. That is a part of the “Hidden Gift”, that with every ending there is always a new beginning and that the love and memories will live forever in our heart.

Our next card (Justice) also reminds us of the natural laws of Balance, Truth, Karma, Wisdom and Accountability. It can also as you may know speak of the need to deal with the legal system in some way. So please be careful and pay extra attention when dealing with legal matters!

I feel the message that the spiritual and angelic realms wish to draw us to through the card of Justice is our need to learn from all of our past experiences both good and bad and use them for our own personal growth. They are encouraging to us take a along look at ourselves and try to free ourselves from any negativity that could be causing an imbalance in our life.( the scales of Justice).

I feel this why they have also given us the card of Temperance. This is also a card of finding balance, the ability to take the middle path as we walk our own pathway, of finding a balance between right and wrong, and the ability of being able to make the right decision however difficult it may be, rather than choosing taking the easy way out.

Our final message from the spiritual and angel realms comes to us through the Knight of Cups. The most well used meaning of the Knight of Cups if you are someone looking for love is that he can signify someone new entering your life. However although he is a classic romantic and passionate soul, he can also signify someone who is in love with the idea of being in love! This could be you or them so tread very carefully!

I feel the message the spiritual and angelic realms wish to draw our attention to more is the other qualities that he possesses. He wears his heart on his sleeve, he’s honest and passionate in his thoughts and words. He is intuitive and has no problems in speaking up about the things he is passionate about, and has no problem expressing his emotions.

The card that signifies the overall energy for this reading is “A Hidden Gift”. The message from the spirit and angelic realms throughout this reading is their way of letting us know that the “Hidden Gift/s” applies to all of us, and is within all of us.

We all possess the qualities, gifts and abilities represented by the cards used in this reading within us. The spiritual and angelic realms are asking us to recognise this, to dig deep within ourselves and to both find and use our own Hidden Gifts.

Until next time… Please take care and stay safe.

Tarot card for this week (29th June – 5th July 2020)

Your Tarot card for this week is the 8 of cups.

This weeks card is the 8 of Cups

Your Tarot card for this week is the 8 of cups. This card is all about releasing that which no longer serves us and walking away from situations or people that keep us stuck in the same place or routine and stop us from moving forward along our own pathway.

In the picture of the tarot card for this week you can see a young lady who has set a fire in her last cup that signifies all that she needs to release (a cleansing) and released it into the sea, but as she walks away she walks towards a new sunrise, a new day and blue skies. She has set herself free.

With all that is going on in the world today Coronavirus (Covid19) the Lockdown we have all endured across the world for the last few months and the loss of loved ones, the separation from loved ones, restrictions of movements, riots, shootings, looting’s, stabbings, racism, the list goes on. But none of this is new, it has all happened time and time again throughout history as the card tells us…

“releasing that which no longer serves us, walking away from situations or people that keep us stuck in the same place or routine and stop us from moving forward along our own pathway”.

Your message from the the Tarot card for this week is to take a look around you, just stop and take some time out for yourself, give yourself permission to allow some time for yourself to think clearly, what needs to change in your life? What do you need to let go of?

The media have been reporting on the murder of George Floyd and the BLM over the past weeks and the clear message that has come through, is that it has become crystal clear that things need to change and people need to change. There is a serious need to release routines, beliefs, people and situations that are no longer working and no longer serve us and find new and better ways of doing things.

We may not be able to change the world as one person but we can as one person change ourselves. It’s not easy to face change, accept change, accept our own faults, negative beliefs and habits, but the young lady in the card has found the strength and courage to do just that and now walks towards a new sunrise, new start and blue skies ahead.

Your task for the week ahead…

Take time out for yourself, put life on pause for a few moments, look around and see what changes you need to make either in your life or within yourself. The situations, people or beliefs that you need to let go of so that you can look towards the change that will bring you your own blue skies, sunrise and positive new start.

Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.

Words, Trust and Relationships

Words, Trust and Relationships.

Words, Trust and Relationships

Interpersonal relationships are social connections, associations and affiliations between people. They vary in levels of depth and intimacy and cover different aspects such as friendship, family, boy-girl relationship and marriage. Regardless of the different kinds of relationship or the different role which a person plays in a social entity, conflicts may arise and can strain a relationship. Trust is an important element in maintaining a healthy and harmonious relationship. Conflicts normally arise due to the betrayal of trust between two parties in a relationship. Whenever there is a conflict, parties may resort to hurling harsh words and insults on each other which may eventually lead to emotional stress.

Trust is the pillar which supports relationships. Lies are the culprits for distrust and suspicion in relationships. Lies should be taken seriously because for every time a lie is told, the level of trust will drop and create more and more suspicion between parties. Eventually, the person who tells the lies will lose their credibility and this will strain the relationship. In today’s modern society of heightened stress and competition, lies are inevitable and serve as a convenient tool to evade trouble and protect oneself. However, this form of convenience is exchanged with the reduction in trust. A person who has their trust misplaced before may have difficulty trusting people again. Therefore, with regards of relationship, once there is zero trust between both parties, this relationship has failed. Honesty is the best policy!

Words can be the most powerful tool but the most destructive weapon in the world. Words can be in the form of praise and compliment but also a weapon that can hurt and leave an emotional scar in a person. For instance, rumors are able to cause a person to break down and become adversely affected because of the large number of people being involved. When it comes to relationship, hurtful remarks and insults being hurled on a person in the fit of anger during conflicts can deeply affect the person’s psychological and emotional state. The impact of these words can be further intensified especially when it come out from a person who you are closely attached to. The emotional effect may heal over time but it can also change a person’s perception of humanity and relationships permanently.

In conclusion, trust and words are closely related to each other in a relationship. Any incorrect management of these two important elements can strain a relationship. Anger management, character building and emotional stress management are crucial to prevent conflicts and handle any aftermath of failed relationships. Therefore, one should not take things to be granted and learn to cherish relationships.

Recovering our True Self: The Journey Out of Our Negative States

Down through the centuries, spiritual teachers of all traditions have differentiated between our mundane, invented personality so filled with stress, and our true identity characterized by serenity, constancy, and wisdom.  They urge us to discover our inner depths and that vaster Self which enables right action in the world. Everyone of us is meant to live with joy and compassionate outreach to the people around us. We are designed to be masters of our selves, capable of overcoming all the difficulties of life. This is our birthright, but in order to experience it, we must recognize how far we are from living in this manner, why this is so, and what efforts we must make to live in such a way. This new awareness and these efforts are the process that leads us out of our negative emotional habits in order to enter into the depths of our spiritual nature.

positive negative patternTo recover from our ingrained habits and our subconscious imitations of parents and peers is truly spiritual warfare.  It is the narrow way that few want to travel as it requires going against the grain of our own behavior.  It is making the hard choices rather than taking the easy way as we always have.  This process takes place in the trenches of our most ordinary interactions with the world.  Authentic spiritual development takes place in that moment of irritation, that moment of unkindness, that moment of selfishness that we encounter the heat of the battle.  This inner battle determines who we are and how we live this life during our brief journey through time.

Here then are some specific methods for recovering from those toxic habits:

The first and most fundamental effort is the objective study of ourselves. Why? Because nothing real can take place until we know what we are dealing with. We cannot take for granted that we know how or why we function the way we do. If you want to operate a computer, you have to learn the software. Human beings are complex software indeed and are rarely user friendly. So tryobserving yourself from a completely neutral standpoint. Do not judge what you see. Just see it. Observe your reactions, your attitudes, your moods and the many aspects of yourself that take charge from moment to moment. If you do this with sincerity and courage, not justifying every action and passing thought, you will begin to see yourself more objectively and initiate the awareness of the Observing Self who will be the key to your recovery.

This simple effort begins the process of creating a space within you that is not completely hypnotized by external events. Though you still react to external circumstances through ingrained habit, there is now this sliver of your Self that is not pulled out of you. A new space of inner freedom is being created along with a new sense of a deeper identity than the surface personality.

Another critical aspect of this observation is the study of our negative states. You will be amazed at how much of our time is spent under the dominance of these dark moods and thoughts. You will catch yourself grumbling about other people, feeling dejected over this or that event, complaining about the weather, resenting something somebody said. Nothing healthy can grow under the constant downpour of this acid rain within you. Eventually, you will discover that you can free yourself from such unpleasant behavior and states of mind. Step one is to turn off the leaking faucet: stop expressing negative emotions.

This effort is the beginning of separating yourself from them. You don’t have to accept living in those dark states. You are not them. They are bad habits acquired over a lifetime. If you want healing and joy in your life, you must stop the momentum of negativity. One of the important things to observe about negative states is how much energy they take away from us. If you are aware of yourself before and after a moment of rage, you will see very clearly how much energy has been lost in that brief moment. We only have so much energy available to us each day, and we can use it to be healed and renewed, or we can squander it thoughtlessly.

So notice your thoughts before they plant themselves in your feelings and eventually manifest in your actions. Anger at a colleague or spouse can be caught before it has caused internal and external damage. In that more rational, detached place before the feeling has caught you by the throat, you can notice why you are angry. What is it in you that is reacting that way? What is it in your colleague that has caused his or her behavior which is so disturbing? Anger can then turn into compassion, or at least into a new insight about yourself or another.

After self-observation and separation from negative states comes the next all-important practice: becoming present to the moment. Experience the moment as it is, for what it is. Becoming present grounds you in reality here and now and takes you out of the tempests of imagination and inner talking that fill the mind with so much noise. Become present not only to your surroundings, but to your body. Relax the tensions that you haven’t even noticed before: In the shoulders, in the jaws, in the stomach. Begin to experience the revitalizing peace of being alive in this moment. Those of you familiar with meditation know how helpful it is to regulate one’s breathing in order to center oneself. Just breathing in and out slowly to ease the inner tensions is a powerful tool for nourishing your spirit in the moment. Learn to sit quietly for awhile. This is no luxury or idle behavior. We are so wracked with stress and worry that we cannot recover enough to get back in touch with ourselves until we are released from the grip of our anxieties. We rob ourselves of the very joy of living when we let ourselves fall into endless worry and nervous tension. Take time to let go of all that.

This daily effort teaches us to stop or at least to step back from the constant flow of thoughts that creates reality for us. This means that most of our worrying and anxious considerations fall by the wayside and we are able to rise above the clouds of our immediate concerns to the larger picture of our existence as a whole. Sometimes, however, the flood of thoughts refuses to slow no matter what we do. Our nerves are so frayed that we cannot achieve the simple peace of looking out the window and enjoying the view without anything coming to mind. That’s when you might employ the stop exercise. In the midst of a thought or daydream, tell yourself to stop and abruptly cut short what is going on in your mind. Then relax your body and look around you, just seeing what is there. Take a vacation from the inner turmoil.

So our daily practice for recovering from a life polluted with negative emotional habits includes: objective observation of our selves, separation from negative states, quieting the mind, and becoming present to the moment. You will notice how these practices begin to take us out of our usual nervous tension and keep us from mindlessly responding to everything around us by turning a portion of our attention inward and by expanding our perspective in the moment.  We then become more than our self-centered, habitual mass of reactions.

If you apply these techniques regularly, you will soon find yourself living more frequently in that space of peace, of centeredness, of recovery from being victims of automatic reactions. Then you will find that you become capable of a serenity and acceptance of what is, of a surrender of selfishness that empowers you to help others as well as yourself.

Such a journey of emotional and psychological recovery offers us a new spiritual empowerment which enables us to accept life as it comes, even with all its complications and the capacity to act rightly in any given situation. This developing inner power creates a free human being who is no longer entangled in his or her selfishness and constant stream of fears and desires. Such a person can journey through life in peace, with wisdom and compassion. Such a person makes the world a better place.

How to recognise negative energy

Many of us know the harmful effect of negativity. Napolean Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich says; “There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it’s positive or negative.”

negative energyIt is probably easier to be negative than positive. It is easy to slide into a blaming culture, the poor little old me mindset. We all know the importance of being positive and usually more effort is needed to a maintain positivity as it is easy to slide into negativity.

However, you can avoid negativity and disallow it to ruin your life by recognising them. Negative energy in our life can be ourselves and the people around us.

Personal negativity could come in the form of suspicion, mistrust and self doubt. Very often many of us allow negativity to invade our thoughts, for example, doubting the possibility that things are going smoothly, believing that there is a catch somewhere, always wary about being taken for a ride and being jealous of another person’s achievements. As we are the master of our own destiny and our thoughts can make or break us, such negativity will hinder our progress and even destroy something that is going well.

Negativity energy could also come from people could be our colleagues, our friends and family. When you are around people who say things to cast doubts in your mind, complained about almost everything and whatever other people are doing, it can have a negative effect on your emotions and behaviour. These people live in fear and worry. They can’t control their emotions and they are frequently angry. Being around negative people can drain your energy. Their negativity can lead you to making wrong judgement and decisions.

Sometimes, it may not be possible to stay away from negative people especially if they are family members. However, it is possible to walk away from a negative conversation. Stay away from people who make you doubt yourself or your progress

You know you are becoming a negative person when your venture start failing and your progress get stifled. You will notice that positive people stay away from you and you are surrounded by people who are constantly negative. Eventually, you will become an angry and depressed person.

Remember, nothing gets solved being negative and it will only make worsened our life. Recognise the negative energy, stay away from it and make a conscious effort to be positive.

“Whenever a negative thought concerning your personal power comes to mind, deliberately voice a positive thought to cancel it out.” – Norman Vincent Peale
