#MondayMotivation – #Meditation #TarotReading #DragonOracleCard

As of yesterday, I have completed another full trip around the sun. I began my day with a guided birthday meditation, then celebrated with family and friends. It was a wonderful day. I am also celebrating a win for JAGGED FEATHERS in the book award contest at the North Texas Book Festival! I couldn’t have asked for a better gift!

This is a short but powerful meditation. I hope you enjoy it!

The tarot reading is a little different this week, as two cards came out together. So, instead of three, we have four. 🙂 I love how the Universe works!

I felt like these cards were just for me, but hopefully, someone else will relate to them as well.

The Knight of Wands indicates energy, passion, motivation, and enthusiasm. You are bold and courageous and willing to venture into unknown territories to further your mission and your dreams. You don’t really care if danger lies ahead – in fact, if it does, then it becomes all the more exciting and thrilling for you. Adventures like this light you up because you know growth and expansion are waiting on the other side. Be a pioneer and take calculated risks to reach new heights. Be mindful that the Knight of Wands can express himself as an ‘act first, think later’ type of person. In your pursuit of action, you may be impulsive and impatient, expecting everything to be done yesterday. While you are bursting with energy, you have a tendency to rush into things with little consideration for the consequences of your actions. This card is SO indicative of how I have lived my life and how interesting it sits in the past position in the reading.

The Fool is another card that I resonate with on a deep level, and it is from the Major Arcana, so affects the overall deeper persona. He stands on the edge of the cliff, oblivious to any danger, carefree and dreaming. Even though you don’t know exactly where you are going, you are being called to commit yourself and follow your heart, no matter how crazy this leap of faith might seem to you. Now is a time when you need to trust where the Universe is taking you. Yep. This is another eerily accurate depiction of how I’ve lived my life.

The Strength card. There is my Leo the Lion. 🙂 I have always loved this card, and it inspires me! The Strength card represents strength, determination, and power. It speaks to the inner strength and the human spirit’s ability to overcome any obstacle. Strength is about knowing you can endure life’s obstacles. Honestly, I never knew the strength I possessed until I faced the lengthy illness Rick endured until his passing. Times like that cause you to draw on every ounce of strength. This card urges you to ‘tame’ your animal instincts, gut reactions, and raw emotions and channel these initial responses constructively. It’s normal for feelings such as anger, rage, sadness, guilt, or shame to arise in certain situations. However, it’s what you do with these emotions that makes all the difference. Now is a time when you need to be conscious of your instinctual urges and bring them into balance with the greater good.

The Ten of Cups embodies happiness, joy, and emotional contentment, particularly in your relationships and family. It is the ‘happy family’ card, suggesting that your family relationships are harmonious and loving right now. No one is fighting or causing any tension; all family members are getting along with each other and sharing in the love and happiness that surrounds you. This card may appear in a reading when you are spending more time with family, perhaps on a holiday, reunion, or event, where you can rest and relax together, creating fun and happy family memories and strong bonds. How appropriate since I spent my birthday celebrating with family.

MY TAKEAWAY:

It’s great to experience unbridled passion and energy! In fact, there is nothing like it. But be mindful of your responsibility to that energy and channel it in a way that works for the higher good of all. I believe we all have strength and determination that goes to depths perhaps yet unknown. Situations in life can bring that out in you, along with strong emotions that need to be channeled in a productive way. It is important to celebrate with your loved ones and any occasion to do that only increases your bonds.

What a gorgeous dragon card this week with a wonderful message. The key inside the flame would make a great book cover image!

Silver Dragon. Illuminates your potential with higher light. Access untapped resources. Look into your soul. See higher possibilities.

#MondayMotivation – #Meditation #TarotReading #DragonOracleCard

I have missed my regular Monday posts. July was a whirlwind month with two trips AND finding my new book up on Amazon for pre-order. I look forward to some routine weeks ahead and back to working on my WIP, which has been sadly neglected.

I’m not a worrier. I think I got that from my mom. I’ve heard her say a hundred times, “I’m not going to worry about it. If I can fix a problem, I will, and if I can’t, then I won’t worry about it.”

That’s not to say if you are a worrier, you are wrong. Worry has its place and can be a good motivator. From that, the theme this week is letting go of things you cannot change.

Here’s a short but beautiful meditation to help let go.

I returned to the tarot cards this week for guidance for the week ahead. Here’s what I got.

The Knight of Swords is all action. He is ambitious, action-oriented, driven to succeed, and fast-thinking. I could use some of that energy about now. You are so highly motivated to succeed that you will stop at nothing to pursue your dreams. The challenges, difficulties and obstacles on the path ahead don’t faze you because you know where you want to go. Move forward with sheer strength and determination to make things happen. The downside of the fast-thinking, quick-acting Knight of Swords is that sometimes you act too quickly and haven’t thoroughly thought things through. 

The Three of Swords can represent a deep hurt or disappointment. Following on the heels of the reckless knight, it is an admonition to slow down and look at where you are going to avoid any loss or setback. It may also represent an emotional release. Maybe you’ve held something pent up for a while. This is a go-sign to let it all out. The good news is that because it is a low number (3), this is a short-lived setback. And you will come out on the other side stronger and wiser.

The Magician card is self-explanatory. When you think of a Magician, you often think of the tools he uses to create his illusion. In this same sense, we have all the tools we need to create a profound magic in our lives.  Seriously, everything you need right now is at your fingertips. You have the spiritual (fire), physical (earth), mental (air) and emotional (water) resources to manifest your desires. And when you combine them with the energy of the spiritual and earthly realms, you will become a manifestation powerhouse! The key is to bring these tools together synergistically so that the impact of what you create is greater than the separate parts. This is alchemy at its best!

MY TAKEAWAY:

You may feel inspired, fired-up to take action right now as the ideas are coming fast and furious. But you are warned to slow down, take a realistic look and then go create your own magic!

The Dragon Card today is so inspiring to me! It goes hand-in-hand with the Knight of Swords.

Fire and Water Dragon. Enables your life to flow with loving force. Prepare for change and to move forward quickly. Expect the unexpected. Have fun!

Happy 4th of July! #MondayMotivation – #Meditation #TarotReading #DragonOracleCard

I hope everyone in the United States is enjoying the 4th of July holiday.

I don’t recall ever drawing the Queen and King of Swords together, but I did today.

The Queen of Swords represents independent clear thinking. She is a no-nonsense influence, seeking truth with unbiased judgment. When interacting with others, she will not tolerate mistruths or excessive ‘fluff’. She prefers to get to the heart of the matter without engaging in too much chit-chat or gossip. She is a quick thinker and highly perceptive, piercing through the noise and confusion to get straight to the point. While she maintains empathy for others, she also will not tolerate any kind of deception. It’s not that she doesn’t care, she simply doesn’t have time for anyone who is not 100% true and authentic.

The King of Swords is the ultimate symbol of intellectual power and authority. He has the courage and intellect to achieve all that he desires. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are in your power, ruling from a place of authority and respect. You stand firm in your truth and express yourself with deep conviction. As a result, others pay attention to what you have to say. Under the influence of this mighty king, you have a clarity of mind and can perceive the truth, so it is up to you to take the lead by providing an objective point of view and making decisions based on impartial judgment. Sounds like the perfect match for his queen, doesn’t it? As a professional advisor, he may come across as detached or disinterested in your personal circumstances unless it relates specifically to his skillset. This is so he can provide only the most relevant guidance to you.

Both the King and Queen lead from the head, not the heart.

The Wheel of Fortune reminds you that the wheel is always turning and life is in a state of constant change. If you’re going through a difficult time rest assured that it will get better from here. Good luck and good fortune will make their return in time. Similarly, if things are going well, know this, too, will change. This cycle shows why it is so important to cherish the blissful moments in your life and make the most of them while they are within reach – because in a flash they could be gone. The Wheel of Fortune is also known as the wheel of karma and reminds you that ‘what goes around comes around.’ Be a kind and loving person to others, and they’ll be kind and loving to you. Be nasty and mean, and you will get nasty and mean turning back your way. So, if you want happiness and abundance, make sure you’re sending out that positive juju in kind. What you send out into the Universe will come back your way. The Wheel of Fortune card asks you to be optimistic and have faith that the Universe will take care of your situation in the best way possible. Meditation and visualization can reinforce your intention to bring increased abundance, good fortune, and prosperity to you. 

MY TAKEAWAY:

This week calls for clear unemotional thinking and acting from a point of truth without judgment. Be kind to everyone you meet. Remember, karma is real. Remain optimistic regardless of your situation!

Isn’t this a gorgeous dragon card? I love it!

I have been asked by Patty Fletcher to explain the dragon card for those who are not sighted and I am happy to oblige. This is the Air and Fire Dragon and he expands our creative energies. He is a beautiful combination of blues and oranges with a volcano erupting in front of him. His message: Harness your creativity, excitement, and enthusiasm. Communicate your passion.

Air and Fire Dragon. Expands your creative energies. Harness your creativity, excitement and enthusiasm. Communicate your passion.

The quote I am sharing today hit me in a powerful way. Think about it. How often do we find ourselves being silenced and denied? How can we grow and flourish under such duress? I do not want to ever turn my blog space into a political arena. But the overturning of Roe vs. Wade just set women back a hundred years – silenced and denied. I have never believed the government had any right to dictate what a woman can and can’t do with her body. So, this is not political, but social.

This meditation is perfect for finding your hidden strength.

Consulting the Tarot cards brought rather confusing results, so I’ll try my best to interpret them in a general way that hopefully everyone can relate to.

The Eight of Pentacles is a card of apprenticeship and mastery. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are working hard to improve your skills and become a master at what you do. It may indicate further education or study in order to hone your skills. More broadly, the Eight of Pentacles suggests you are working away at the finer details of the various aspects of your life, in an effort to continuously improve your situation. You may be unhappy with your current state, and you know you need to make some important changes in your life to increase your overall satisfaction. This card is a positive sign that you are committed to making those changes and to ensuring that you give yourself the best possible chance. Overall, this is a very hard-working and conscientious energy that is present in your life. Keep doing what you are doing as it will eventually lead to success.

The Two of Wands indicates you are exploring your options and carefully plotting out the path ahead, accounting for all possibilities and potential challenges. You are open to growth and exploring new territories, so long as you maintain a level of certainty that your efforts will work out in the end. It is important that you establish a clear plan before moving ahead. Contemplation, introspection, and expansion are the keywords for this card. The Twos in Tarot often represent decisions of some sort. With this two, you may make a choice between sticking with what you know or taking a risk. 

The Seven of Cups is all about choices, opportunities, and at times, illusions. Often, the Seven of Cups can be a sign of wishful thinking and projecting into the future about what you would like to create, rather than taking action here in the present to make it happen. This card is inviting you to move out of the ideas and options phase and choose. Each will have its pros and cons – it’s up to you to make sure that the option you select is in alignment with your purpose and your Highest Good – even if you feel somewhat paralyzed by the options available to you.

MY TAKEAWAY:

I struggled with this reading because the question I approached it with, was regarding human rights. But the cards took me down another path, which tells me the situation and question I had in mind are out of my control. And isn’t that true? So, going with the cards, we are encouraged to keep honing our craft, to stick with what we know while contemplating the future and what it may or may not hold for us. We always have certain choices in life and it is wise to look at those choices through realistic eyes.

I absolutely love this Dragon card, but then I love them all. 🙂

Still feeling the need for a bit more, I drew from my Angel Oracle Card deck and this is what came up.

There you have it. I hope you make it a great week ahead and try to look past the crazy world for something uplifting and positive.

#MondayMotivation – #Meditation #TarotReading #DragonOracleCard

Welcome to another Monday post. Today’s theme seems to be all about making choices.

The Tarot reading for the week ahead focuses on exposing darkness and illusions and celebrating!

The Devil card focuses on our shadow selves – the negative part of us we don’t want anyone to see, that holds us back from being the best version of ourselves. The Devil card often appears when you have been tricked into thinking you have no control over your shadow self or these negative forces and that you can never break free from their hold. When this card shows up in a reading, see it as an opportunity to bring these negative influences into your conscious awareness, so you can then take action to free yourself from their hold. Shine your light on the negative patterns that have been standing in your way for so long, and over time, you will loosen the grip they have on you. 

The Moon can indicate a time of uncertainty and illusion—when nothing is what it seems. Be careful of making fast decisions when The Moon appears because you may later realize you only had half the information you needed. You need to listen to and trust your intuition so you can see beyond what is in front of you. Feel into situations rather than thinking about what they mean. Let go of your conscious mental blocks or negative self-talk and allow your intuition to guide you. Your dreams, intuitions, and inner guidance will lead you forward toward higher levels of understanding if you listen and use your judgment to help interpret the messages of the subconscious.

The Three of Cups is a card of celebration, friendship, sisterhood, 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. The Three of Cups often indicates a very sociable period. This card also invites you to collaborate with others on a creative project and inspire one another to reach new heights. Collectively, you are working towards a common goal for the greater good of others. This is a very creative card, suggesting that you may pursue a creative outlet within a group environment.

MY TAKEAWAY:

When we think we have no control over our shadow selves, we get stuck in negative and destructive patterns. But we always have a choice, and if we listen to our intuition, choose the higher path, shine a light on the darkness, and let go of negativity, we get to enjoy a celebration of friendship, joy, and possibly creative collaborations.

And now for another lovely Dragon Card!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. I enjoyed time away with my family and took the opportunity to disconnect from the outside world.

Here is a short guided meditation to help you focus.

The Tarot Cards called to me this week and here are the cards I drew.

The King of Cups represents mastery over the realms of emotion, creativity, and the unconscious. When this card turns up in a Tarot reading, you have gained control of your feelings and can accept them without allowing them to get the better of you. Even when life throws you a curveball, you can draw on your emotional maturity and stability to help you navigate these challenges. You don’t let things get to you, and you steer clear of the drama, instead choosing an emotionally balanced and calm approach. (Boy, can we all use a big dose of that right now!) As you interact with others, you may need to navigate their strong feelings and emotional triggers so you can create a sense of peace in your interactions. 

We have had the 3 of Pentacles before and it represents teamwork or collaborations. Each person has an important role to play, and when they come together as a team, they can create something much more significant than if they were to undertake the project on their own. So, when the Three of Pentacles turns up in a Tarot reading, take it as a sign to collaborate with others, creating synergies to achieve big results. As you implement your plans, you will realize that you have the skills, capabilities, and resources you need to accomplish your objectives. See the Three of Pentacles as an encouragement that you are on the right track. You are competent at what you do, and you are making progress. Keep going!

The 8 of Swords brings a bit of a halt to the stability and progress of the other two cards. It is a warning card. Don’t allow yourself to feel trapped by your circumstances. When you believe you have no options, it brings everything you work for to a standstill. You may be over-thinking things, creating negative patterns, or limiting yourself by only considering the worst-case scenario. The more you think about the situation, the more you feel stuck and without any options. It is time to get out of your head and let go of those thoughts and beliefs holding you back. As you change your thoughts, you change your reality. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones, and you will start to create a more favorable situation for yourself.

My takeaway:

Face life’s challenges from a point of balance, logic, and reasoning but with compassion. You may find that you need to collaborate with others or find yourself in a situation of participating in teamwork to accomplish goals, but never allow yourself to think negative thoughts or let yourself believe you are trapped by circumstances. There are always alternatives and based on the two cards in front of this one, you are advised to maintain logical thinking while joining with others.

Now for another awesome dragon card!

We have two cards from the Major Arcana, which you may remember represent the bigger life lessons.

The Hanged Man is all about being still and hanging out, waiting to see what unfolds before taking a step. He is almost the exact opposite of The Fool. The Hanged Man reminds you that sometimes you have to put everything on hold before you can take the next step, or the Universe will do it on your behalf (and it may not always be at the most convenient time!) I am sure we have all had those experiences where circumstances beyond our control shut us down. If you’re in tune with your intuition, you’ll start to have a sense for when it’s time to hit the brakes and put things on hold – before things get out of hand. But if you’re out of alignment and oblivious to those intuitive signs, the Universe will probably put things on hold for you, in the form of continued obstacles, ill-health, and breakdowns. When you sense the ‘pause’ coming, pay attention to it; otherwise, the Universe will turn up the volume until you can’t ignore it any longer.

Six is a harmony number and is a multiple of the Trinity. The Six of Wands encourages us to toot our own horns. Maybe you’ve won an award or finished a manuscript. Whatever the reason, The Six of Wands also encourages you to put yourself out there and be proud of what you achieved. The Six of Wands is a positive encouragement to believe in who you are and your accomplishments so far. Have faith in what you’ve done and how others will receive it. Do not let fear or guilt stand in the way of your success. You ought to be proud! Hold your head up high and know you‘re worthy of admiration.

The Hierophant card represents an established set of spiritual values and beliefs and is often correlated with religion and other formal doctrines, which are often the basis from which we make important life decisions. The Hierophant‘s arrival suggests you are following convention and staying within the bounds of a tried and tested model. You are not yet willing to go out on a limb or offer any new and innovative ideas. Instead, you adhere to the key principles and rules that you know will lead to a successful result. This card often speaks to group membership or being part of an institution. You may enjoy a deep sense of comfort being surrounded by people who have well-established belief systems and explicit values.

My Takeaway:

Now is not the time for energetic action. It’s a time to take a pause, be still, and assess. Reflect on achievements, be proud of accomplishments, and then take that stillness and awareness into staying with positive thinking and a solid connection to your core belief system, as well as with other like-minded individuals as you move forward.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Dragon Card!!

Welcome to Spring! It’s official and here in Texas, the weather couldn’t be more perfect. I hope you are inspired and excited about what lies ahead.

Today’s meditation is about utilizing the fresh energy Spring brings. I know you will enjoy it!

And now for our reading. I returned to the Tarot cards this week.

The Justice card represents fairness, truth, and the law. You are being called to account for your actions and will be judged accordingly. If you have acted in alignment with your Higher Self and for the greater good of others, you have nothing to worry about. However, if you haven’t, you will be called out and made to own up to your actions. If this has you shaking in your boots, know that the Justice card isn’t as black and white as you may think. A level of compassion and understanding accompany Justice, and although you may have done something you regret, this card suggests that you will be treated fairly and without bias. Be ready to take responsibility for your actions and stand accountable for the ensuing consequences.

The Justice card often appears when you need to make an important choice with the potential for long-term repercussions. At its core, Justice is about the search for truth. As you explore your truth, you will discover that things are not as clear-cut as you had thought. Be prepared to dip into the murky waters and explore what truth means to you. 

The Two of Swords indicates that you are facing a challenging decision, but you are unclear about which option to take. Both possibilities may seem equally good – or equally bad – and you are stumped about which will lead you to the best outcome. You must be able to weigh up the pros and cons of each choice and then make a conscious judgment. Use both your head (your mind and the intellect) and your heart (your feelings and intuition) to choose the path that is most in alignment with your Higher Self. The woman in this card wears a blindfold, indicating that she cannot see the entirety of her circumstance. You may lack the information you need to make the right decisions. Thus, it ties in to the Justice card and seeking truth.

And once that choice is made, the energy from the Knight of Wands carries it forward. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are charged up with energy, passion, motivation, and enthusiasm, and you channel that energy through your inspired action. You have a clear vision about what you want to create and, fuelled by your passion and inspiration, you are now moving forward with leaps and bounds to turn your vision into reality. This card is your sign to go for it!

My takeaway: Seeking truth in all aspects of our lives is prudent and necessary. Then when faced with a decision, we can fall back on the power of that truth and be ready to move forward with whatever choice we’ve made with passion and energy.

Your thoughts?

I love the message this beautiful little dragon brings and how it ironically ties in with the tarot reading!

This is one of the more powerful and beautiful short meditations I’ve found recently. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

The Tarot Reading for the week focuses on our spiritual body.

Do you know how rare it is to have all of one suit come up in a reading? Here we have all Wands, and if you remember from our study of the cards, Wands represent our spirituality, inspiration, determination, strength, intuition, creativity, ambition and expansion, and original thought.

The Four of Wands is a card of joyful celebration, blissful happiness and appreciation for the good things in life. When this card appears in a Tarot reading, it is the perfect time to celebrate with those you love most. In numerology, four symbolizes stability and firm foundations, and with the Four of Wands, you are now enjoying a period of happiness and security. This card indicates a sense of harmony and balance as well as completion and thus denotes a time of peace and contentment in life that comes as the result of hard-fought efforts.

The Eight of Wands is a dynamic card, containing a high level of energy that propels you forward to reach your goals at a much faster pace than ever before. You can expect to be very busy, but this is one of those ‘good busy’ periods during which you are enthusiastic about the progress you are making. It encourages you to go with the flow; don’t resist it. Everything is moving fast right now, so make the most of this forward momentum to manifest your goals and dreams. Allow the energy of the Universe to flow through you and propel you closer to your goal. Be laser-focused with your intentions and actions.

When the Knight of Wands card appears in a Tarot reading, you are charged up with energy, passion, motivation, and enthusiasm, and you channel that energy through your inspired action. You have a clear vision about what you want to create and, fueled by your passion and inspiration, you are now moving forward with leaps and bounds to turn your vision into reality. This card is your sign to go for it!

Wow! That’s a lot of energy!

My Takeaway: Be thankful for your loved ones and celebrate them in your life, then be ready for a big burst of energy that will propel you into whatever you are focused on. Go with the flow and let your passion, motivation and enthusiasm carry you through this week!

On a personal level, I have ditched one writing project temporarily for another story that is demanding my full attention. So, I’m going to take all of this passion and energy and run with it! The working title of the new story is “A Beggar’s Bargain” and it is set in the 1940s. I’m super excited and inspired!

What about you? Are you feeling this energy? Let’s talk!

And look at this gorgeous dragon! Wow! I love the lotus flower in the heart center.

Today’s meditation I found to be particularly relaxing. I hope you enjoy it too.

And now for the Tarot Reading for the week.

Photo by Jan Sikes

The Page of Cups suggests a new idea or opportunity has come to you out of the blue. Your creative energy is flowing, and now the question is how you will express it. It 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. This card often appears when you are being called to trust your intuition and be open to the multitude of intuitive messages coming your way.

The stern and regal Emperor comes from the Major Arcana. The Emperor represents a powerful leader who demands respect and authority. Status, power, and recognition are essential to you, and you are most comfortable in a leadership role where you can command and direct others. As a leader, you rule with a firm but fair hand. You have a clear vision of what you want to create, and you organize those around you to manifest your goal. You listen to the advice of others, but you prefer to have the final say. The Emperor also reflects a system bound by rules and regulations. You create law and order by applying principles or guidelines to a specific situation. Create calm out of chaos by breaking down any problem into its parts and then mapping out the actions you need to take to resolve it. Be systematic, strategic, and highly organized in your approach, and stick to your plan until the end.

The Six of Cups is a card that takes you back to the happy memories from your past, whether as a child, teenager or young adult. You may simply be revisiting those memories in your mind, or you may travel back to your childhood home or reconnect with your childhood friends. Six is a harmony number and indicates cooperation in your relationships. You are ready to give and receive, without expectation. The Six of Cups can also refer to children in your life. It can suggest a pregnancy, a birth, and siblings who play nicely together. It may also be a sign that you are about to spend more time with young children, playing, laughing, and learning together. Children are often here to teach you something about yourself and can serve as great advisors. Kids also set good examples for how to stay present, open-minded, and curious. They see the world as a magical place and their hearts are open to the myriad of pleasures available to them.

MY TAKEAWAY:

I think as writers, we are always open to new creative ideas and nudges, but it seems this is a particularly auspicious time for beginning something new while staying within the boundaries of protocol and approaching with a systematic or organized mindset. Staying in harmony with others and keeping that mindset of our inner child will help keep it all lighthearted and pleasant.

For me personally, this reading really struck a chord as I am starting to work on a new series, but doing it in a completely different way. I’ve always been a pantser, just wrote the stories as they unfolded, but for this series, I am outlining and planning, but at the same time trying not to let it feel too heavy. Let me hear from you. Does this reading resonate with you in any way?

This Dragon card is just gorgeous. That’s all you can say about it.
