“ I now live and work in a safe, comfortable and spacious environment, in a wonderful location.”
This card may have a direct translation for some of you. Perhaps you are in the midst of physically moving work places, changing jobs, relocating your home and such. If that is the case, you are encouraged to hold positive intentions in your heart for a clear path, a safe environment and an effortless transition. Change is good when we embrace it.
However, for me, this card has a different context and calling. As I move deeper into 2019, I am finding that my Spirit is moving into a deeper connection with Divine. And a deeper connection with people in general. I am finding that it is easier to let go of the old patterns that we holding me back; things like old ways of thinking, or ways of thinking that were passed down to me. And I am finding that the more I let go of the old ways of being, I create room for new ways of being. And I am finding this a very freeing process. Just because I used to do it one way, doesn’t mean that is how I have to do it forever. I too, can change. I am finding that as I experiment with new approaches I am surprised with the results. I don’t always get it right, I admit that. But I do get it right more often than I used to. For me this card represents moving into a more authentic way of being. And it is a new place. The other day, my daughter (she’s 10) and I had a disagreement, and both of us being stubborn, dug our heels in. When I realized I was being in my “old” way, I stopped and I said to her “I am sorry. I’ve never been a mom to a 10 year old girl before, and I am trying to figure this out as I go. Sometimes I will get it right, and sometimes I won’t, but I am aware of how you are feeling, because I was a 10 year old girl before. So, instead of fighting, why don’t you tell me what you feel you need and we can start there.” WHOA! Total shift in dynamic. I was vulnerable! Which created the space for her to be vulnerable too. And we chatted, and I learned how I was meeting her needs as a mom, and the tough part – how I wasn’t. Now I can’t un-know that. Now, I can step confidently into a “new” way of being. I believe the card this week, is calling us to be aware of how comfortable we are, where we are. And when we take stock, we may realize it is time to make a move into a new way of being. And that’s okay. Let’s keep mastering our own journey no matter where we are on the path.
