Did you choose your card, yet?
If you selected Card 1:
Focus - My goals are before me; emotion, thought, and action all in a single focus on their attainment. Focus is a wonderful tool, and it can serve many purposes in the knowing that energy follows intention. Used in manifestation, all our energetic power can be fine-tuned into a single thought to bring into fruition a desired goal. When used in visualization, energetic barriers can be created to keep one safe. In performing a task, all outside influences can be kept at bay as we focus on that which needs our attention. Sacred objects and mantras have also been known to be coupled with this skill known as focus. As these items are focused upon and we place our intention of following their intended purpose, outside influences are soon forgotten, losing their grip on our experience. Are my thoughts scattered making it difficult to choose? Have outside influences hijacked my ability to be present? Have outside influences hijacked my ability to be present? If I focused more on what the crux of this situation needs, would my perception of where this is going change? Or would the end still be relevant?
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Heart Chakra - Energetic Color: Green - My knowing of love is surrender to the peeling away of layer after layer, to taste the succulence of each moment.
As an empath, your walk on the path of love is experienced in many layers;. We love from a depth that not many would understand. Declarations of love in word or deed hold no meaning unless we feel it in our hearts. Is it possible that our gift of feeling so deeply and physically is the ultimate gift of love to all? As we surrender to each experience, we gain an opportunity to go deeper into what love is and what it offers as the teachings. We begin to become the example of what love was always meant to be. Love of friends, family love, romantic love, love of possessions, love of experiences - each a later to be understood and to be placed into our knowledge bank of what love is. But one of the hardest places of love for an empath to delve into is what resides in the center of the heart, self-love. When you begin to trust the depths of love that reside within, you will discover a source of love not outside, but within. Knowing this you will soon realize your purpose, and that purpose is love. Love drives you, it is you, and as such, it is infinite and does not need to be earned.
As I love others today have I loved from a knowing that I am full? Am I looking to be validated through perceived love from outside? Do I feel the need to be someone or something I am not to earn love from friends, family, or partners?
If you chose Card 3:
Stardust - As I look to the night sky, I know within that my souls is as ancient as the lights that shine through the darkness of night.
It is a sobering thought to realize that throughout history every human has gazed at one point to the stars in the sky. Each set of eyes pondered the reasoning behind their existence, what brought them to be, and whether there was moreto this journey we call life. As an empath, you experience all things as energy. Thought, emotion, pain, nature, and the elements - all present themselves as an energetic dichotomy looking for space within. This isn't an easy existence, and soon makes you question, "Why?" As empaths know that someplace deep within, you have a remembrance that we all come from light. This light within your soul has been earned through hard-learned truths of experience. You have learned the difference between that which is love and that which pretends. It is in this knowing that we all come from the same light, that you can find yourself wishing that others would also remember this truth! Next time someone seems lost or if you sense a spark in their eyes of curiosity, take them out into the night sky and together gaze and be humbled. They just may remember!
Do I question my existence and see my empathic gift as a curse? Do I honor the depth of my ability to love as a gift that has been earned? Is this situation bigger than me?
