Card Drawing September 29, 2019
Good day, soul friends! Happy last day of Mabon! I want to say thank you to all who participated in my Reiki Ceremony for the New Moon last night. I hope your week was fantastic and that your weekend brought you some rest! I have been trying to give myself a bit more peace on Saturdays and enjoying time with my family.
Today's guidance comes from the Wisdom of the Oracle deck by Colette Baron-Reid.

Did you choose your card, yet?
If you selected Card 1:
Essential Meanings - Turning imagination into manifestation; creative thought; visualization; the power of aligning imagery and feelings; creativity; illusions
Who do you want to be? What do you need to believe in order to have the life you want? You were gifted with the power to imagine. If you can dream it, you can create it. This is the time when your imagination is the key to manifesting the life you desire. Spend time daydreaming, fashioning a vision board to help you see your goals, or meditating. Allow the power of your creativity to deliver images of what feeds your soul. The allow your feelings to mingle with your inspirations, and imagine these things being real right now. Then repeat. What you imagine will become your belief, and soon you will see these things come to pass in the outer world....as if by magic.
In matters of the heart, it's easy to daydream about another as a means of connecting to that person. While that's romantic, if you want this relationship to be real, you need to go for it, not just dream about it. Now is the time to move beyond the daydream and into reality, beyond illusion and into fruition. Relationships are about relating, so step out onto the dance floor where imagination partners with manifestation. The message of this card is that a person with attributes you have imagined will enter your life. You'll be changed for the better. Imagine that!
This is a powerful time to get clear on how you create your prosperity, what it mans to you to be prosperous, and what attributes you need to develop in yourself to make things happen. Who do you need to be to live out your dreams? Can you imagine the kind of life you desire - really imagine it, without holding back to sheer force of your power of your creativity? If you can envision it, you can have it. Get ready, for prosperity is waiting for you to claim it now! Act "as if." Your dreams will really come true.
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Essential Meaning - Perspective; objectivity; neutral observation from a distance
Most people see the world through a personal lens. They closely identify with their feelings and experiences - so much so that they come to believe that these are the only reality. There are times when you need distance in order to gain perspective and understand your circumstances from a more neutral vantage point. Now is one of those times in your life. This is a perfect moment for you to begin to do some exploring. Instead of only considering yourself, consider what you need to understand about the conditions, people, culture, environment you're engaged with now. You'll be so happy you did. Illumination is the miracle you seek and will indeed find.
Sometimes you just can't see the forest for the trees in your way. Feelings can get all jumbled up, and often you hear one thing when a person says another. It can be like an echo of an unresolved past experience dubbed over your conversation. Take time out before you react. It's likely the other person who has no idea how his or her words have affected you. Take a few steps back and lend understanding to the situation. Have faith in your connection and trust that you can come together. Take to higher ground now and cultivate curiosity about what you observe in yourself, in others, and in the landscape. You will find things much improved sooner than you know.
It is an advantageous time for you to get some distance from what you're doing and see your work and your projects from a different perspective. The trick is to connect to the essence of your goals and aspirations while letting the form and timing be dictated by Spirit. You may be too personally attached to an outcome and unable to see the miracle because it's not turning out exactly as you have planned. Trust Spirit. The perfect version of your abundance is right in front of you. Remain neutral and curious, and watch the miracle unfold.
If you chose Card 3:
Round and Round -
Essential Meanings - The spiral quality of events when a lesson isn’t quite integrated; cycles you are challenged to break; revisiting a pattern from a new perspective.
The appearance of this card is a reminder that although it may appear that you’ve gone backward, the truth is that you are standing at a higher level, looking down into your circumstances. You will learn something, do something better, and break a cycle set up in the past. You actually have a bird’s-eye view of your initial footprints and can access the wisdom and lessons learned.
Are you wondering, How did I get here again? Does something feel familiar right now in your dynamics with others? Maybe a little too familiar? Don’t be surprised that you’ve found yourself repeating an old story with the same sort of person, who may not look similar but who attracted you because of your easy acquaintance with his or her qualities. Your relationship is a mix of what is good and what is potentially challenging. You have been drawn to this person through the perfection of Spirit’s plan for your evolution. You may have circled back to an accustomed spot - a familiar place - but that’s fine, as you get to do things again, only differently this time, for you learned something of great value since the last time around. How will you choose to behave now that you’re aware? Remain curious and stay out of the blame game.
If you’re in a scenario that appears to be an echo of something that’s already happened in the past in your work life, it is because you’re being invited to see what you couldn’t see before. This is a perfect time for you to look at the deeper motives you have and your attraction to the opportunities and people who have entered your life to be part of your journey to prosperity. Who helps you navigate? Who sabotages you? Who supports you? What are the familiar signs, and your responses to them, when you find yourself in a repeat of a pattern of the past? It’s a good time to get a coach or mentor who can help you see what you can’t on your own. Repeat what works, not what doesn’t. Then you will free yourself from the old cycles and cease going round and round.
