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.

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance ~ Energy Check-in

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance ~ Energy Check-in. Releasing Allegiances

Spiritual Tarot & Guidance ~ Energy Check-in

Hi everyone

I hope you enjoyed the last post that I published with the messages for us from the spirit & angelic realms, if you have not had the opportunity to view and read it yet you can find it here: Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 7th August ~ 14th August 2021.

I felt guided today to select a card for us, (inspired by the spirit & angelic realms as always) to do an “energy check-in” to see how the current energies that surround us are at present.

It will come as no surprise that the card that “jumped out of the pack” almost straight away while shuffling was Releasing Allegiances. I feel that is the spirit & angelic realms once again reinforcing their previous message.

The message from the card they have given us, is a to release all that is not working for us whether it be a bad habit, job situation, relationship, the place we live, basically anything that is holding us back, making us unhappy and preventing us moving forward with our life path.

If you have thought about changing your job of work, changing you career path, going back to school to further your knowledge, follow a path you have always wanted to or turn a hobby into a business… now is the time to do it.

Listen to the opinion of others by all means, but most importantly of all listen to yourself, what is your inner guidance saying to you?

We are being reminded to both remember & recognise that we ourselves as individuals are important too! We are being asked to take the actions necessary to support ourselves in mind, body and soul, and remember the importance of self-love, nurturing ourselves, healing ourselves and appreciating ourselves for who we truly are.

Take care and stay safe

Warding Off Negative Influences – How To Keep Your Aura Strong

Warding Off Negative Influences - How To Keep Your Aura Strong.

Warding Off Negative Influences – How To Keep Your Aura Strong

Every person has a unique aura that reflects their current condition. People who  are sick or emotionally upset have weak shadowy auras, while healthy happy  people have auras that are strong bright auras. A strong healthy aura is  essential in blocking negative influences from draining energy and vitality from  us.

There is no scientific definition for an aura. Many scientists are  certain they do not exist. Others, while they are open-minded, can not describe  auras in scientific terms. Some people present photographs as evidence of auras, but many sceptic declare them to be fakes. However, people with psychic abilities can see and read auras. It is possible  that the halos you see in traditional religious art are actually auras. For this  article, we accept the reality of auras as fact.

People with strong  positive auras are naturally charismatic and attract others to them. They tend  to be more successful in getting things done and getting support from other  people. People with negative auras tend to be self-promoters that drive others  away from them, and those with strong negative auras may be evil. It is possible  that negative auras can become parasitic and literally steal energy from  positive auras.

It is important to remember that the aura has little  power of its own. It derives from a person’s internal condition – physical,  psychological, emotional, and spiritual. It is the tool by which psychic healers judge a person’s overall health and  well-being. To have a strong positive aura means you have a strong healthy body,  well-balanced psychological and emotional health, and a spiritual maturity and  strength.

A weak or negative aura indicates physical illness or disease,  conflicted emotions, unresolved psychological issues, and/or limited spiritual  development. Therefore, when you strengthen your aura, you are actually making  progress in becoming a healthier, more well-balanced person with a stronger  spiritual base.

Negative people can and do influence positive people.  Psychics can actually see this in the interaction of auras where the negative  person’s aura seems to drain the positive person’s aura of its energy and light.  The positive person will feel it when it happens – they may feel more tired or  weaker, their mood may lose some sparkle, or they may get a feeling of  uneasiness or anxiety.

On the other hand, positive people can influence  negative people as well. Their energy and vitality can literally flow into a  person with a negative or weak aura. Psychic healers do this. They send, through  their aura, positive energy to the negative person. And the stronger the  positive person, the stronger their aura, the less likely they will be to let a  negative person steal their energy.

No one wants to be around a person  who is constantly pessimistic and depressed. That’s because the negativity is  contagious. They negative person literally drains more positive people. But the  stronger you are, the healthier and happier you are, the less vulnerable you  will be to negative influences.

What causes negative auras?

People  with negative auras are frequently seriously ill, whether it is due to a  physical, mental, or spiritual disease. Drinking, smoking, and taking drugs can  weaken your aura. Stress, conflict, and violence can, too. Too little exercise, mental stimulation, positive social interaction, or spiritual connection can produce a dark weak aura. And engaging in immoral activities can be disastrous – crime, deviant behaviours, and misuse of your fellow man can produce an aura as  dark and thick as night. Negative auras can be extremely powerful, reflecting  the inner turmoil that creates them, and they can influence the people around  them in very serious ways.

Some people believe that negative energy isn’t  always associated with a living human being. Restless spirits of people who  passed away before they were able to resolve conflicts are one example of a  negative entity that can still influence the living. And just as there are  positive spirits, like angels, there are negative ones. No one can prove or  disprove their existence, but many people have experienced the powerful effects  of having negative entities influencing their lives.

How can I protect myself from negative energy and  auras?

People with positive auras, on the other hand, are better able to  withstand negative influences. Their good health is a strong protective barrier, and they less susceptible to drains on their energy and vitality. If you want to  have a stronger, more positive aura, you need to become a stronger, more  positive person.

There are also techniques we can use to protect  ourselves from negative energies and entities and maintain a healthy aura. All  of these techniques serve to help become more powerful in our psychic abilities  and more sensitive to external influences that might harm us.

An  important first step is to learn to use and trust your intuition. For example,  have you ever been involved in a conversation with someone and felt a knot form  in your stomach? This knot was telling you that this person is negative and may  be draining your energy. Relying on those internal messages more may be one way  to protect your positive energy and aura.

However, many people have  trouble distinguishing intuitive knowledge from emotional reaction. When you  begin to develop your intuitive skills, you must take care that you’re not  letting your feelings about a situation masquerade as intuition. There is no  school or class for telling the difference. The best way to learn is through  trial and error, being willing to make mistakes, and through self-knowledge.

Looking into your motivations is important. Perhaps you got that knot in  your stomach because you wanted to punch the person in the mouth. That is not  intuition. It is emotion. You are the only person who can interpret these signs,  and self-knowledge is an important tool in differentiating intuition from  irrational emotions.

Another way to become stronger and healthier, and to  have a strong positive aura, is to avoid things that weaken or harm you. Avoid  junk food, alcohol, drugs, and tobacco. They weaken your defences and personal  resolve. They cloud intuition and increase emotions. Counter-balancing the  avoidance of negative things is incorporating more healthy things into your  daily routine – exercise, nutritious foods, positive social experiences, prayer  and meditation.

Meditative activities strengthen you and your aura.  Listening to soothing music or reading an inspirational or uplifting book helps  clear your mind and body of negative influences and builds your resistance to  them. Meditation helps you tune out externalities and tune in to your own  strengths and wisdom. Meditation is a very important and rewarding tool for  becoming healthier and having a stronger, more positive aura.

You can  also use some objects that may have a healing or protective effect. Amulets are  thought to fend off negative spirits. They come in many shapes, forms, and sizes  and are made of a variety of materials. Used since time began by native and  primitive peoples, they can be worn as jewellery or carried in a pocket or purse. Some people use  specific stones as amulets. Popular stones for this purpose include onyx,  hematite, double-terminated quartz, and aragonite. They are also called  protection stones.

If you feel that you are being attacked and someone or  something is trying to drain your energy, you might try taking a physical  position to block it. The point is to protect yourself mentally, physically, and  spiritually at the same time. Take a position that blocks out external  influences by crossing your arms in front of your chest, cross your legs. Make  all your fingers on your left hand touch the fingers on your right hand. Close  your eyes, clear your mind, and take long slow even breaths until you begin to  feel comfortable and protected.

Closing yourself off in this way will  not only protect you from negative influences, it will stop your energy from  reaching other people. It’s a way to take a psychic break and allow you to  refresh and strengthen your own body and spirit. Your aura will, in turn, become  stronger, more light, and more resistant to negative influences.

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
