Welcome to the start of another week filled with powerful opportunities!
The Chakra we are focusing on this week is the Solar Plexus. It is located in the upper area between the navel and diaphragm. It acts as our center of personal power. This chakra governs personality, ego, and identity, as well as personal freedom, choice, and authenticity. The solar plexus chakra also has much to do with motivation, willpower, and purpose, which stem from one’s sense of personal efficacy. Self-confidence and view of the self connect to the solar plexus chakra, as well. Furthermore, this chakra governs the digestive system and its respective organs; as a result, it has jurisdiction over both the gut’s emotional brain and stored emotions. You can wear the color yellow, carry or wear a yellow citrine gemstone, or get out in the sunshine to help bring awareness to this chakra. I found this short guided meditation to share with you.
Now for our weekly Tarot Reading.
It feels like we are in such a powerful time right now. Once again, I randomly drew cards from the Major Arcana, which affects the deepest aspects of our life lessons and karma. The first words that come to mind with The World card are, “All the world’s a stage.” This card represents unlimited opportunities. It is the final card in the Major Arcana and can also symbolize accomplishments and success. But for this reading, I just see it as a world full of opportunities for us to choose from. The Death card always symbolizes the end of something. Perhaps it’s walking away from what no longer serves you, or the death of old ideas and beliefs. It indicates transformation or transition. The ending of something old so that something new can begin. And in this layout, that is perfectly represented by The Fool. It indicates new beginnings, taking the proverbial leap of faith with innocence and bliss. The sun is shining on him as he nears the edge of the cliff and he’s carefree and trusting. So, to me, the overall take on this reading is this: The World is filled with opportunities waiting for us if we can only let go of what holds us back and no longer serves us. Then we take the leap of faith, trusting that our new beginning is going to bring us one step closer to what our heart truly desires in life. This is truly a powerful time of transformation. I can feel it.
If you’ve forgotten how I draw cards, you can refer back to this short video, but they are always random and always inspired. https://youtu.be/wvNEkIrVUgI
Make it a great week and I’d love to hear your comments on the Solar Plexus Chakra, the meditation and the reading!
Good morning. It’s another Monday and the beginning of a brand new week. The thought expressed in this image struck me as profound and I hope you enjoy it as well.
For our Monday Meditation, I’ve chosen something a little different. This meditation is a few minutes longer than what I’ve been posting, but still under 15 minutes. It is filled with affirmations guaranteed to uplift you!
And now for our Tarot Reading to set the tone for the week ahead.
The Six of Swords is indicative of some sort of a transition. But the thing to note here is that the woman and child in the boat are receiving assistance with the passage. It can indicate leaving behind what is familiar and moving toward the unknown. But again, not alone. The Chariot is often looked at as the card of travel, but it is multi-dimensional in that it shows great willpower, determination and strength. It can be taken as a sign of encouragement, and in this reading following the Six of Swords, shows strength to leave behind the familiar and move toward the unknown with confidence and strength. But, without any doubt, it is an action card. It is not a time to be passive, but to move forward with purpose. The Knight of Cups is a beautiful outcome card indicating love and compassion pouring through you. It can also indicate the opening of creative expression, as well as possible new relationships coming into your life. So, in conclusion, the cards are telling us to leave behind the familiar with strength and confidence and look forward to new relationships or creativity. I don’t know about you, but I love this and am excited to see what’s ahead over the next few days!
Make it a great week and thank you for joining in!
Welcome to another start to a new work week. It is my hope that you find some inspiration to lift you as you begin. I loved these words of wisdom from Sue Vincent. They struck a chord with me.
Our meditation this week is all about the practice of gratitude. Enjoy!
And now for our message from the Tarot cards for the upcoming week.
The King of Swords is a powerfully energetic card, as are the three cards which follow him. The suit of Swords represents the intellect. Being the highest card in the suit, the King is a symbol of intellectual power and authority and has the courage and acumen to achieve all that he desires. He indicates the opportunity for clarity and an objective point of view. He can also represent a person of authority that you might call on for expert advice.
The Wands are representative of our spirituality, intuition and creativity. The Ace is always some new beginning, new idea, new inspiration or new project. Just look at the force with which the hand is protruding through the cloud to bring an enlightened vision or idea. The Eight of Wands is all about movement. There is no standing still! It is a dynamic high-energy card pushing you forward with the idea the Ace brings. You can expect to be very busy. 🙂 Determine what you want to manifest and then align all of your resources and energy to focus on that singular goal. Remove all distractions and devote yourself to the task with total concentration, determination and will. This experience can be highly productive, allowing you to accomplish a lot in a short time.
There you go! Make this week productive, positive and filled with clarity!
Welcome to another Monday post to help get your week started off on a positive note. I took these words from the meditation I’m sharing with you today. They resonated deeply with me. We owe it to ourselves to live the best life possible, in this body, in this moment.
And now, Part Three of the Self-Love Series. This meditation is SO powerful. It is one I will return to often. Enjoy!
The Tarot Reading for this week is filled with more positive energy! I love all of these cards!
We have two Wands cards this week, and you may remember from our Tarot card series, that wands represent spirituality, inspiration, determination, creativity, ambition and expansion, original thought and the seeds through which life springs forth. I associate the Wands with Springtime. The Page of Wands symbolizes inspiration, discovery or a new idea. He indicates limitless potential. And I believe we ALL have limitless potential if we can learn to access it and trust the process. The King of Wands represents pure fire energy in its masculine form. It is a sign you are stepping into the role of a visionary leader, ready to direct your people towards a common goal (And this could be in a story you are writing). You have a clear vision of where you want to go, and now you are manifesting that vision with the support of those around you. Also, the King of Wands reminds you to lead your life with intent, vision and a long-term view (finish that book!). The final card in this week’s reading brings it all into a perfect balance. The Empress signifies a strong connection with our femininity, which translates in many ways – elegance, sensuality, fertility, creative expression, nurturing – and is necessary for creating balance in both men and women. The Empress calls on you to connect with your feminine energy. Create beauty in your life. Connect with your senses through taste, touch, sound, smell and sight. Draw on these senses to experience pleasure and deep fulfilment. Isn’t that exactly what we, as authors, attempt to do in our writing? A great week ahead with new inspirations, the masculine fire energy to manifest and the feminine energy to balance and soften.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead and invite your comments!
Welcome to another Monday, and another opportunity to begin your week on a positive vibration.
Continuing with Part 2 of the Self-Love Meditation series, today’s focus is on gratitude. Enjoy!
The Six of Cups is one of my favorite feel-good cards. The cups are overflowing with flowers and sharing one with someone else is such a wonderful thing to do. It reflects innocence of childhood and joy. It can also represent revisiting someone from your childhood. I just see it is a benevolent card. The Nine of Pentacles is a gorgeous card and exudes abundance, self-sufficiency and financial independence. It can represent a reward for hard work. While the suit of Pentacles typically focuses on material wealth and gain, this card also suggests that you are in harmony with the environment around you. You appreciate the beauty and abundance found in nature, and you can harness this high-vibe energy to bring pleasure into your life. You may enjoy gardening or floristry, or you may just like to pass your time in the beauty of nature with picnics or walks in the park. The Strength card is pretty self-explanatory. It represents strength, determination, and power. But it speaks to an inner strength, not an outer. You are fueled by your inner strength, personal power, strong will and determination. You can control a situation without excessive, outward force. No one knows it’s you calling the shots. It looks to be a powerful week ahead, incorporating benevolence and sharing, having gratitude for your abundance of blessings in life and strength to do whatever needs doing.
Welcome to another Monday post designed to help start your week out on a positive note. I’ve added Sue Vincent’s beautiful book, Midnight Haiku – A Year in Contemplation, to my collection of physical books and it is filled with beauty, wisdom and thought-provoking poetry. In honor of the full moon’s aspect we are still under, here’s one from that book.
Our meditation is part one of a three-part series. Today’s segment stays with the vibration of the full moon – a time for letting go. Enjoy!
The Tarot cards for this week have such a powerful message that can apply to each of us.
The King of Cups personifies a person who is mentally stable. He/she is emotionally balanced, compassionate and diplomatic. Keep in mind, this can be either male or female. It’s more about the solid vibration of the card than gender. The Five of Wands symbolizes possible conflict, disagreements, tension or diversity. It can also represent a change. Notice how the five men on the card are only brandishing their weapons, but not actually striking anyone. Also keep in mind that conflict or disagreements can bring productive solutions as we listen to another person’s point of view. The final card shows such a beautiful solution to the middle card with a different perspective, pause, surrender or letting go. Interesting that the letting go card is fitting to the meditation. Such a beautiful life lesson is depicted in these three cards. If we approach life from an emotionally balanced place, no conflict will shake us but instead will give us a different perspective or the opportunity to let go.
Welcome back for another Monday post filled with positive energy and motivation. I’m sharing with you another quote from Sue Vincent.
And now for a short meditation to start your day filled with positive energy!
Such beautiful cards this week! The Four of Wands is exactly what it appears to be – a celebration. Ironically, I just returned from a music festival (my first in almost a full year). It was so great! I hope you’ve had or are looking forward to some sort of celebration as well. We had an Ace last week, so apparently new ideas are flying around everywhere. The Ace of Pentacles represents a new financial or career opportunity, abundance and manifestation. That’s something we can all use. On a personal level, I was able to get one of my books in Kevin Costner’s hand at the music festival, so maybe that will turn into some sort of opportunity. Who knows? All I know is that it is always up to us to make the effort in life. What happens after that is out of our control. The Four of Cups represents contemplation, meditation, reevaluation or possibly apathy. Three cups sit in front of the man with another being offered. Will you take the opportunity or let it pass? It’s always a choice. Perhaps the opportunity doesn’t feel right for you. If that’s the case, it’s best to let it go and keep your eyes on the horizon for what the Universe is bringing that is just right for you.
I hope you have a fabulous week ahead filled with positive vibes!
Those of you who follow Author Sue Vincent know she is facing death with an inoperable and incurable type of cancer. Her blog posts have been filled with so much wisdom. These words below made such an impact on me I had to share.
Today’s beautiful meditation is designed to help bring clarity to difficult situations and I found it to be effective. I hope you will too.
For this week’s Tarot reading, we have the Seven of Cups, Six of Wands and Ace of Swords. The Seven of cups is all about opportunities. There are all sorts of gifts in the seven cups, but as you can see, some are not gifts at all. So, you must be careful what you wish for and make your choices wisely. Sometimes the Seven of Cups can be about wishful thinking that is not grounded in reality. The Six of Wands follows with a representation of success, progress and possibly public recognition for work done well. It’s safe to say that if you make the wise choice in the first card, success is sure to follow. Aces always represent new beginnings of some sort. In the case of the Ace of Swords, it indicates a new inspiration or idea and encourages you to live your passion. I hope this reading sets the tone for an amazing week ahead for everyone. Careful what you choose, enjoy success and watch for new inspirations!!
Happy Monday! I have much to be thankful for after the struggles of the past week. The quote above really spoke to me. I do believe it to be truth.
Here is today’s meditation to start your day filled with positive energy. Enjoy!
The Tarot Cards for this week could not be more appropriate.
The Five of Swords indicates a battle of some sort, and for many, this past week was a huge battle for survival. The Five of Cups shows a situation may not have turned out like you wanted or that you are suffering some sort of loss. For those affected by the arctic storm that passed over, loss is part of the aftermath. But the Two of Wands wraps it up with future planning, progress and personal goals. It can also represent a decision of some sort. So, even though we’ve had some hard times, the days ahead are promising. I hope that sets the tone for this week for everyone.
Thank you for joining me today and I wish you a positive and fulfilling week ahead!
Good Morning. The words on this banner are the last words the guide speaks in the meditation I am sharing today. It is so profoundly beautiful I had to make it stand out.
This short meditation guides you in balancing your Chakras (Energy Centers). It’s an energizing way to start your day and your week. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
The mini Tarot reading for this week is absolutely amazing! It almost needs no words. The cards speak for themselves!
All positive, all good. You don’t have to be an expert in the Tarot to know that The World and The Wheel of Fortune cards are totally magic. The World card symbolizes completion, fulfillment, and accomplishment while the Wheel of Fortune offers you just that – a spin at the wheel, and signifies good luck. And finally, the Four of Wands is a celebration. So, what a week we are going to have!! Of course, there is lots more on each of these cards, but I promise to keep this short and sweet. Here’s to you from my heart to yours! Go out and have the best week ever!
