#MondayMotivation – #Meditation – #TarotReading – #AngelOracleCard

Welcome to the last week in March! The first quarter of 2023 has already zipped past. I found this quote to be quite profound.

I love the positive affirmations in this guided meditation!

Interesting card pull today.

My first thought when looking at the Eight of Swords is feeling trapped or that you are a victim of circumstance. Or it could be you are feeling stuck in your past. This could be either an internal or external conflict. The message in this card is to quit naming excuses for not moving forward, Release the fear that is keeping you from making a change in your circumstances. Perhaps you are stuck in a job you hate, or your current money mindset is scarcity based. Whatever the situation, always remember you are not alone. You have the power to release the bindings and remove the blindfold, trusting in your intuition and Angelic team.

The Temperance card is all about balance, but I also see it as an indicator of patience. Timing is a factor in your financial life right now, so ask for messages and divine assistance to create abundance and opportunities. You are also advised to be flexible and take a moderate approach, trusting that the results you want will take time. Have patience as the universe goes to work to bring your desires into the physical realm.

The Wheel Of Fortune is a reminder that each moment is temporary and that life is cyclical, not linear. I always think of the Willie Nelson song “Phases and Stages” when I see this card. The card advises you to cultivate a strong spiritual practice as this can ease negative moments and help us enjoy the positive. The message is to focus on what you can control and let go of anything you cannot control.


The Eight of Swords fits my recent debacle with Facebook. My author page got hacked, and someone ran Facebook ads under my account, so I was feeling very much like a victim. However, as always, it is up to us to take control and fix whatever we can. I finally was able to talk to a person yesterday, and it looks like it will be resolved and the unauthorized charges reimbursed. I just had to step out of the victim role, drop the money scarcity mindset, and take action. In the meantime, once you step out of that role, patience and balance are a must while the wheels keep on turning. The one constant in life is change. Once we understand that, we can get through the difficult times with more ease.

This is such a beautiful Angel message.

Beloved One. Archangel Chamuel: "I am helping you with your spiritual soulmate relationship."

I hope you have a great week ahead. I’d love to hear your thoughts on today’s message.

    1. I think you are right, Robbie. Most people do have a love/hate relationship with their jobs, but they are necessary for keeping the lights on and your family fed. Often, it’s a matter of attitude and perseverance. Still working on the FB debacle. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I’ve tried several times over the years to speak to someone at Facebook over various issues but never had any luck. I’m curious how you managed to get through. I can never find a number to call. I usually get auto prompts that don’t answer my questions. I’m not as down on Facebook as most people, but I find it extremely frustrating not being able to speak to an actual person in any customer service situation.

    1. I opened up a chat window, Pete, and once I explained my situation, a person named Chris (was surprised it wasn’t a BOT) said she would need to look at it further and would call me. And I was even more surprised when she did call. I don’t know if it’s a good for-everything number, but what showed up on my caller ID was 650 250-0433. Again surprised it wasn’t an 800 or 866 number. Thanks for visiting! Have a good week!

      1. Thanks. I’m writing it down. “Hi, Chris. I called just because I wanted to talk to a live person.” 🤣 (as opposed to a non-living person)

  2. The Eight of Swords card is speaking to me, Jan, but I’ve made some progress on moving forward – finally. That’s awful about your FB page! What’s wrong with people? Glad you actually got to talk to someone.

    1. So glad to hear you are making progress in the getting unstuck area. That’s great. I don’t know what’s wrong with people. I often say that if everyone would just do the right thing, what a wonderful world this would be. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment!

    1. I completely agree, Gwen, especially when social media is involved. I was determined to find a resolution or else delete my page completely. Thank you for stopping by and for your support!


  3. Thank you, Jan, for sharing your inspirational post. I really liked the quote: “A ship is safe in harbor, but that is not what ships are for.” So sorry to hear that your Facebook account was hacked. This must have been so frustrating for you. I’m glad that you were able to resolve the issue.

    1. So glad you stopped by, Linnea, and glad you enjoyed the quote and post. I’m still working through the FB issue, but finally talking to a person gave me some hope it will be resolved. Thanks for leaving a comment!

  4. So, our takeaway is very drawn from the current circumstances. I hope you really were able to resolve this for good. But nevertheless, the cards make so much sense in their combination. Once you find balance in your life or a situation you cut the chains of your thoughts that imprisoned you. As a consequence, you look towards an unburdened future to start with a fresh mind. Wow, I love this reading!

    1. Exactly, Erika. And I felt the victim persona fall away when I was actually able to talk to a person. Now it’s out of my hands, and the wheel keeps turning! I’m so glad you enjoyed the reading!

  5. I’m so glad you got the Facebook issue resolved and got through to a person to do so. That sword card hit home with me too, I’ve been in a stuck position and need to move past that negative baggage. Great reading, Jan xo

    1. While the FB issue may not be resolved, at least I finally reached a real person. Now to be patient (The Temperance card) and see what the outcome is. So glad you enjoyed the reading today. It’s so easy to get stuck in a situation and not see a way out. Thank you for stopping by, Denise!

  6. I am so glad Facebook stepped up to the plate and came through for you, Jan.
    Patience definitely comes into play when waiting on resolutions. It’s frustrating that sometimes hiccups and hurdles are out of our hands and we have to find that balance while waiting for others to resolve them for us. Sadly, the situation should have never happened in the first place, but while working through it, you’ve adapted the right mindset!

    And I love today’s quote! Happy Monday!

    1. I’m relieved, too, Mae, to at least have talked to a real person. Now to be patient for a resolution. 🙂 I agree that the situation should have never happened to start with, but it did and was out of my control until I was forced to take control. Thank you so much for stopping by. So glad you enjoyed the post.

    1. I don’t know for sure yet what FB is going to do. The woman I spoke with said I should hear something within 48 hours, so I’m being patient. So glad you enjoyed the reading. I appreciate you stopping by!

  7. What a great quote, Jan. It reminds me of one of have framed in my writing room. “Both faith and fear will sail into your harbor, but only allow faith to drop anchor.” Sorry about your Facebook problems. I bailed out from FB a year ago this week, for me, the stress wasn’t worth it. I hope you get things resolved.

    1. I love that quote, Jill! And I agree. Only let faith drop anchor. Send fear on its way. I don’t want to leave FB, but who knows, I may be forced to. Thanks for stopping by and for the good wishes!

    1. I loved the quote too, Joan. So often, we want to be a ship but never leave the port. 🙂 I also hope FB comes through and settles the debacle. I know now it all goes back to when I got locked out. I never thought to take a look at the ads when I got back in because I wasn’t running any. Oh well. Phases and Stages. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
