#MotivationMonday – #Meditation – #TarotReading – #DragonOracleCard

We are in the midst of a chaotic and busy time of the year. So, simply taking a few minutes to breathe and connect with Source can bring deep inner calm. The inspiration for today’s quote came from a vivid dream.

Here’s a short but effective meditation to help bring a deep sense of relaxation.

And, now for the Tarot Reading to help get the week started.

So appropriate for the season, the Three of Pentacles is a card of celebration, friendship, and creative collaborations. Your friends and family are here to support you and lift you up to even higher levels of success. Celebrate with them and enjoy their camaraderie. This indicates a very sociable period and I think most of us can relate to that. It is a very creative card and encourages creativity within a group environment.

The Page of Cups suggests a new idea or opportunity coming to you out of the blue. Your creative energy is flowing, and now the question is how you will express it. This card invites you to have an open and curious mind. Be open to anything – including a fish popping its head out of a cup! It is with a curious mind that you will discover new aspects of life and yourself. Open your mind to all possibilities, especially those of a creative or intuitive nature, you will be pleasantly surprised.

The Page of Swords takes the Page of Cups to a more active level. When this card shows up in a Tarot reading, you are bursting with new ideas and plans for the future. You may be excited about starting a new project, pursuing a new approach, or learning something new. You have so much energy that you feel as though you could do almost anything – and you can! The challenge, however, is whether you can keep it up. As with all Pages, the beginning always looks promising, but you need something else to follow through and keep up the pace.

My takeaway:

Even in the midst of celebrations, family gatherings, and joyous occasions, creative ideas are flowing, so keep an open mind. Don’t be surprised if you get a creative idea in the midst of Christmas dinner. 🙂 Go ahead and jot it down. Then as soon as you can, begin the new project with enthusiasm and settle in for the long haul to see it to fruition!

Another gorgeous Dragon Card to share.

  1. I went camping for a few days at the beginning of this week, so I’m just now getting around to reading this. My celebrations have been dimmed courtesy of COVID (I have several family members with the virus right now – all are doing fairly well, so we are grateful for that), but we understand the season is about the love shared, not the physical togetherness. We will celebrate as a family after quarantine is over for everyone. As for new projects, I’m focusing my time on finishing my WIP, BUT my next novel is already whispering to me, so I’m excited about that. Here’s to finishing The One Redeemed and starting the full-length novel of Breathless’ sequel. Great post, Jan! And happy holidays! 🙂

    1. I had the same thought when the two Pages showed up together. That’s a lot of energy to pour into a project. I am happy you stopped by today and enjoyed the post. Love you too!


    1. Yoga is a wonderful way to re-center and to find that wonderful calm in the midst of chaos. And you are right, Teri. If I don’t write it down, it disappears, even when I think I’ll remember it. Thank you for stopping by! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  3. Oh I love this week’s reading! I started a new job about 1 1/2 months ago and since then, I have this new energy. This, I’m sure, is mostly due to the less stressful and more enjoyable job. So I’ve definitely felt the need to use that energy in my creative life. I’m ready and eager for new opportunities! Thank you so much for sharing, Jan. I hope you have the Merriest Christmas! ❤
