Last night, seven amazing women read cards for me as part of an Intuitive Tarot group meetup. Of the 33 cards turned on my behalf, there were only two repeats of any given card. Intriguingly, they were major arcana numbers 15 and 13, The Devil and Death, strongly suggesting the the huge change I’m seeking requires me to first look at the lies I tell me about myself.
Fair enough. Then this morning, I received an email from Consciousness Circle Helen. She posed a question she was “expected” to pass along. The question was odd enough that I’m sure if my guides had/have attempted to pose directly, I would have failed to perceive it. Now, thanks to her willingness to receive it on my behalf, I’ll be working with all this question stirs up for me. And staying open to any connection between this morning’s message and that of last night’s cards.
How connected are we, we Earth dwellers? I’m always amazed.

Some days, as part of training my intuition (or rather, training myself to trust my intuition), I’ll go to the Tarot, let a card present itself and then listen for what my inner voice tells me before I go to the book for the card’s meaning.
Today was the second time in a row the deck gave me The Hierophant. The image shown here differs from my deck (The Light and Shadow Tarot, by Michael Goepferd and Brian Williams), but just as difficult for me to get a bead on.
Repeats are significant, especially with Major Arcana like this, right? So I went and did a little more reading about this distinguished looking gentleman. Here’s the question that jumped out at me:
Are my beliefs helping or hindering me?
So I reckon it’s time to dig deeper into more than just the meaning of this card. It’s time to get more aggressive about uncovering some no-doubt long held beliefs that are creating an obstacle to what I now want.
This is not what I wanted to hear. I’m feeling the lazy pull of summer heat and wanting to take a break from putting much effort into my awakening. I guess it comes down to asking which I want more — the old belief (whatever it is) and the thing I now desire?
Anyone out there with experience with The Hierophant? Please chime in. Continue reading “Time to dig deeper”
When my grandest intentions arrive, there’s seldom a risk I’ll act on them right away. It’s usually at 4am or some equally untenable hour. Or after I’ve already committed to something else that requires my priority intention.
“Oh, I would love to completely reorganize all the closets in the house, but it’ll have to wait until sunrise.” The “but” becomes my fire exit, my get-out-of-jail-free, my who-could-blame-me excuse.
What would my world look like if I set intentions and then followed through? What would yours?
Turns out, Wednesday’s automotive CD player glitch was just a warning shot. Thursday, I rolled up to a traffic light and the car simply died. A pair of sensors have burned out. One has been replaced, the other is on order.
My body, too, is experiencing symptoms to suggest a similar overload of sensors, (and no, you don’t want details). I’m looking forward to finding a sustainable harmony within this new sensitivity.
