When growth meets an obstacle

This morning when I pulled my cards for a daily reading I was both surprised and not by the message received. As I mentioned in my last post, my focus has been shifting and the healing continues in my life and my path grows. I previously shared my weekly and monthly cards from Dreams of Gaia. During the week I also pull cards daily in my Chrysalis Tarot (shuffled on the first of every month for a month-long focus) and then my Beyond Lemuria Oracle which gets shuffled every two weeks with the New and Full moons. This method while non-traditional works very well for me and it really helps.

Four of Stones, Chrysalis Tarot. Resing in the lid of a handmade Tarot Box

Today, I pulled the Four of Stones from Chrysalis Tarot. This card is a MESSAGE. *laugh* This card is coming to me today to tell me that there is something blocking my path forward. This beautiful bejeweled chest is distracting and holds within it material possessions treasured and the whispers of those that are sought. If I am to move forward in my path and achieve my dreams, I must move the chest aside. My focus has been split between squirreling away treasures and growth. Treasures are bits and pieces of my path and life that aid but sometimes prove to be distractions. This card tells me to be more aware of the “ooh shiny” distraction of acquiring wealth or other material things that could hamper the growth process with all the sparkling that they do.

This is a good reminder that as I move from working within to out I will need to adjust my mindset and “move the chest” obstructing my path forward. The time to shift these gears is upon me and I shall move forward with a little effort to remove blocks….

Expansion of Self

Tarot and oracle cards are an excellent method of growth and healing within our spiritual paths and lives. Many years ago, I began incorporating the use of cards to get a look at the energy for the day, week, or month…depending on the timing of the draw. It started out sporadically and has grown to a practice that involves multiple decks and the creation of a new system of alchemizing the messages that the cards bring.

Self, Dreams of Gaia Tarot

My monthly energy is coming up on completion as March hits the halfway point and Ostara approaches, the energy I am working with is that of the Self. Thematically, this month is about working with my relationship with myself and acceptance. It’s a path of healing and expansion. I have been fully immersed in taking care of myself this month, especially since for the last week I’ve had a cold. *laugh* Before I became sick, I have been doing a lot of introspection and healing for the last several months through my path and the creation of my new method which utilizes both tarot, crystals, a little astrology, and some journaling along the way. In the time since I began using this, I have healed and grown in ways that were not even a consideration. It has been incredible and later this year I will be sharing this process and path through Sacred Mists as a workshop and membership option. It’s very exciting, the method works.

Three of Air, Dreams of Gaia Tarot

This week, the three of air steps in to tell me that it’s time to pay attention to my studies as it is essential to be combined with the ongoing healing and overall growth that I am pursuing as a part of my path to reaching a higher vibration for myself. After all, we are a combination of our knowledge, our actions/reactions, our energetic light, and the connections we make. It is when we throw all this in the “mixer” we call life that we can share our energy, our light, and we can find wisdom in the path we walk. We can share these mysteries and paths with others and elevate ourselves to more compassionate beings on this beautiful planet, Earth.
