"We would speak of the feeling of disaster that pervades the world, this sense of doom that pervades many people’s thoughts, the idea that you have no control over what’s happening. That somehow this is happening outside of yourself. We would remind you that you have created this, that it all comes from your thoughts. That all inventors, all creative people imagined before creating, that nothing just appears. All that exists has been manifested, therefore your world was thought into being by you and the generations before you and it is culminating in seeming destruction because many believe that is what is happening.
What if you believed that instead of destruction creation is the norm. That what seems to be falling away is actually a lifting up? That the intense energies coming to your planet are not here to blot you out but to bring you to heights of joyful, creative accomplishments? What if you were the architect of your future? What would you then do? How would you live your life? In sorrow? And regret? Or in joy and anticipation of the coming of a wonderful new future of possibilities unthought of before because you are imagining that which until now has been unimaginable?
Think of your computerized world, unimagined until just recently. Think of gay marriage unimagined until recently? Who imagined this?
You did. Congratulations. You are on your way. Do not take a detour into depression or hopelessness but instead forge ahead with an open heart of light.
We congratulate you on your progress so far. Call upon forces for help. We are here for you."
Tarot Reading for the Days Ahead
When I do a reading for you, I create the questions first and then draw all the cards, putting them face down before turning them over to read the answers. This way I am not affected by the preceding cards but can choose cards relying on guidance not ego.
Asking: What to keep in mind? What to imagine? King of Cups
This card is about being vulnerable but still able to master yourself and your surroundings .It’s about feeling deeply, powering through your heart. This is the power of a wholehearted ness.
Asking: How to open to this possibility? Three of Cups
This is a card of celebration of community. It’s about joining together with others in small groups in love and connection. So the idea would be if you open your heart you will not be alone, to start by opening up to just a few closet around you in close contact and focus on experiencing fun and joy with them. This makes sense. If we create lots of small creative loving connection eventually this will affect the larger community.
Asking: What forces could hamper our imagining? Five of Swords.
This card is about the mind and how we defeat ourselves and talk ourselves out of being in our hearts, being open and vulnerable. How we defeat joy. With our fears of what ifs and why we can’t and they are wrong and I am right and on and on.
Asking: What forces would help? The Fool
This is a card of true wholeheartedness, of leaping into the unknown, the untrod with great joy with no expectations only the idea of a benevolent universe. Because there is no expectation, there is no fear of failure, so all is good. We are all Fools deep down inside. We all want to love, we just let Fear and the expectation of pain keep us from leaping.
Asking: What can you as an individual do for the tribe? The Tower.
This is a card about tearing down the walls of fear and ego that separate us from each other. So you are being asked to be authentic, to be present with each other. You are asked to take the risk of moving beyond the usual, the scripted, to a place of just being. If you tear down your walls then you will be able to share with each other.
Asking: What can each of us do for ourselves? The Star
This card follows the Tower in the journey of the tarot. After the Tower all you have is yourself, your essence which is of the Cosmos itself. So instead of the limitations of a small you in the tower, you would now have access to the greater God Self. So what we can do for ourselves is to be as big as we already are, to realize our cosmic oneness, our interconnectedness with everyone.
Asking: What could be the probable outcome of us imagining together and joining forces?
Two of Cups
Two of Cups
This is a card of love, of falling in love, with yourself, your neighbor, your spouse/partner again, your pets, children, the world… So the probable outcome is loving your existence. And if we could imagine this happening in the world, what might just happen?
WOW! What a reading. Even I, who knows how magical the tarot is, am blown away by this reading. Congratulations all! I asked that all our higher selves be with me for this reading and look at what they are telling us. To open our hearts, and see the strength and community that we can create by coming out of our towers of fear into our largess of the loving heart. We are being asked to trust the essence of who we are, Love. We are being asked to free ourselves from our prison of the fearful mind so that we may imagine a world of heartfelt connection.
I thank you all for this. You have lifted me up.
