The Nature of Today's Energy 8.31.13: Be Brave and Dance

Saturday 8.31.13:

The card of the day is the Five of Cups. The hidden energy card is The Moon. The card sits in the position of Nettle = boundaries and caution.

Emotional loss can slip through the cracks.You will tend to look at what is lost rather than what was gained.

It is amazing what can inspire me to write. To simply put words down on mean screen. Whichever!

As I was hooping for exercise, listening to Sarah Bareilles' new song "Brave", I was struck with great emotion. The need to dance. The desire to love my inner child. 
I watched the video and was even more inspired. 

Have you seen it?

For all you Tarot Readers. Try to find the cards within the words she has written. 

The Fool...

I love it!

The energy of the day speaks about the acknowledgment of your ability to be Brave. To dance in an open area and have others watch you. 
Who cares?!

As a Mystic, sometimes we have to be brave, and dance when there is no music. You are dancing with no music every time you decide to venture out on your own. To recognize your good. 

The Moon card speaks of psychic energy but also the start of evolution. Do you think it took a few seconds for a species to evolve into something grand? Nope. 
It can take a life time. Of course I am not going to get into a debate on whether there are some life forms who do evolve in seconds and then die because it may have been a misfit. Not able to survive. 

I would rather focus on your ability to change. To evolve. To do something wonderful and create. To leave that which is holding you back and move forward into your light. 

Try to hide from it. Try to out think it. To out wit it. You will eventually lose. Happiness is all around. Joy is there. It may be within the two cups that are left behind. It may be within the castle that stands before you. You must not cry for that which is lost. 

Even if it means travelling forward with no companion. Sometimes you have to speak what is on your mind. Sometimes you have to take the first step on your own. No hand holding allowed. 
It may seem this way. 
Source is always holding your hand. You may not notice it. You may feel alone at times. Believe me the journey can put blinders on your eyes. You sometimes only see what is in front of you. 

It is time to focus on your goal. The goal of being happy. Happy with your choice. Happy with the state of your existence. Satisfied with the dance you have choreographed. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.30.13: What Does Your Spiritual Diet Look Like?

Friday 8.30.13:

The card of the day is The Devil. The hidden energy card is The Star. The card sits in the position of Fire Opal = sensuality and confidence.

When I see the Devil card, my mind begins to wander, and in turn I start to think of my gift of emotional eating.

When I first started out on my journey, to lose weight and be healthy, I started with a single step. The chains that sat around my wrist were placed there by my current state of thinking.

This is how a lot of things that hold us back are created. You tie the rope around your waist that is attached to the boulder. Sometimes that boulder can turn into a mountain.

You think, "when will I ever break free?"

I would always state, "Today I will surely eat right, exercise, and lose this weight."
I was tired of the current shape of my vessel.
I could see the true Aaron inside of all the excess skin and fat.

I needed to be true to my current self. I had to stop lying. I had to stop the action of "eating my feelings away".

I associate the Devil card to weight loss because sometimes the only thing standing in our way of losing weight is the inner dialogue within our head.

I had to break free. I had to make a choice. To be happy or unhappy. Of course I want to be happy. I had to recognize that I was in control and that no one can stop me but me.

I had to get up and work out five days a week, even when I did not feel like it. I had to have self control when eating and also work through my own crap. Food was not the answer.
Of course there are times when I feel like grabbing a dozen donuts and eating them all. Of course I want to eat carbohydrates and be like all them skinny bitches who can eat what they want and not gain a pound.
I simply have to look at food and I gain a pound. Blah!

The Devil card can creep in and advise me, "You know what will make you feel better? If you went out and ate pizza."
Now eating pizza will not kill me nor will it take me back to the weight I once was. What will make me gain weight is the lack of self control. Once I get the taste of carbohydrates (I mean bad carbs like white bread and sweets) in my belly, then I go hog wild and I eat all the sweets I want. My thought at the time is "I eat right, so I deserve it".
Oh little Devil card.

This is the only way that I can relate the Devil card to everyday circumstances. Eating is the only temptation I have in this life.
The cards are advising us to keep our eye on the goal. I was once told by a good friend, named Dana Handbury, that when you fall off of your diet and begin to eat everything in site, you just simply advise yourself that they are all vegetables, and keep on moving.

I do wake up the next morning feeling guilty and also I have a major food hang-over. Do you know what that feels like?
It is not fun. Sometimes I simply want to give up the constant battle with weight and eat everything in site. Then again what would that get me?
More weight.

When things are not working out in your favor, do not turn to the negative side of things. Turn to the positive. Have compassion for that which you do. If you fall of your wagon (and falling off of your wagon can be anything, such as over shopping, eating, drinking, sex, etc.) and find yourself spiraling downward, understand that you create the momentum of movement. You can always change the direction. You can always break free from your self created glass box. The change can be small. It can be simple. You may fall off your spiritual bike many times but the greatest gift you could give your self is getting back on it.

Tomorrow is a new day. Have the confidence that you are in control. The Devil card is not bad. It teaches us about the obstacle that is in front of us. The obstacle that you have created. So look at your weakness as vegetables and keep on moving.

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.29.13: Something Wonderful is Taking Place Behind the Curtain of Life

Thursday 8.29.13:

The card of the day is Eight of Swords. The hidden energy card is the Tower. The card sits in the position of Red = passion and survival. 

I want to touch briefly on what the day may feel like. You may feel like things are simply not working fast enough. That you are not getting anywhere, even though you are putting in 100% of your energy. The swords have fallen down and you are stuck. are never stuck. 

The swords may have fallen down and you are having to walk through them, but if you listen to your inner being, then you will walk through the danger without a scratch. 

The need to survive. The passion to break through and receive what is good. 
You can feel like you are stuck. 

The feeling is small and meek. It is not overpowering. You can make it bigger than what it already is. 
What if you simply allowed this feeling of "stuck" to exist. Sit within it. 
Open the front door and let it in and then follow up with opening the back door to let it out. Advise it that you will be fine. 

I have been feeling stuck since I have returned to Ventura. What is next? Where am I to go?
What am I to do?

I have been reading, reading, reading, and when I am done reading, I pick up another book and read some more. 

I am reading about crystals and grids. I am working with new tools. The information is there. I am never stuck. I simply am taking a breather. 

I am stopping to smell the roses. I am moving slowly through the field of swords, blind fold and hands tied, in order to make it to the other side. 
I am change. 

The movement may seem small. It may seem like I am standing still. 
My spirit is jumping up and down screaming, "You can do it!"

Always refer back to my statement of "It may look like nothing is happening but you may not see that something wonderful is taking place behind the curtain."

While you are singing your sad song of mishap, the stage is changing behind you. Can you feel it?

Sometimes all we have is a feeling. A feeling that something is happening but you can not see it. 

Do not give up hope. Keep your eye on your goal. This week may bring up more doubt and fear than usual. 
Work through it. Declare your good. Recognize it!
There is a celebration taking place on Sunday. I can feel it! 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.28.13: It is Time to Get Back on Your Spiritual Bike and Ride Into Your Sunrise

Wednesday 8.28.13:

The card of the day is the Eight of Coins. The hidden energy card is The Devil. The card sits in the position of Purple = Third Eye and clairvoyance.

Did you know that the information is there? 

All of your questions contain an answer. It is sitting within your beautiful self. 

The Eight of Coins speaks to me about moving forward. A new skill that you must learn. You have mastered one skill to the fullest and now you must add to it. I am going to take an example from my mystical book called "Even Mystics get the Blues". 

If you are a Tarot reader or a Healer then you can not learn only one aspect of it. You must try! try! try!
Even P!nk states it in her song. Or rather learn! learn! learn!

How many times have you fallen down when learning how to ride your spiritual bike? A lot of times. 
My spiritual body usually has a mystical bruise somewhere on it due to the fall. 

I am starting to venture out and learn additional skills to add to my spiritual resume. 
I can not rely on Tarot alone. Growth is calling my name and I have to answer. Opportunity is knocking at my door and I sure as hell have a nice brunch set up (on a side note I also have a whopping supply of champagne and orange juice, cause these two happy betches are about to come up with some spiritual prosperity.)

A person can get bored with the same old routine every day. I want more! 
I want more clients. I want more spiritual growth. I want to recognize my potential. The potential to be fantastic. 

You must always take on more skills. Add more jobs to your current resume as well. You should be a jack of all trades. You never know when someone will need a Wicked-tarot-Reiki-healing-energy-working-data-entry-person. 

But our Ego is stating that this is not possible. 
I know. 
It is nice to know that the Ego is reliable. 
That made this Mystic laugh. 

I can always count on my Ego to show up at the perfect time. Oh how I could kiss him. 

It is time for you to recognize your true potential. To see it manifest in the spiritual plane and be created in the physical. Use your Third Eye to see it. To see your good. Your dream is not far off. It is right within your grasp. Take it. Pick the fruit from your wonderful tree of life. 

Bruises go away. Cuts are healed and a scar is left behind. You recognize that you are a fighter. It is time to get back on that spiritual bike and ride off into the sunset..or rather ride off into your sunrise. 
The sun is surely rising. 
Do not give up. Do not lose hope. 
Tomorrow brings about the fear of what our Ego is stating to us. You may feel trapped tomorrow but keep this thought in mind,

"You may have fallen off your spiritual bike, again, but your legs are not broken and you are not dead. So get up and try again. "

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.27.13: Have You Lost Your Faith?

Tuesday 8.27.13:

The card of the day is Triumph = The Chariot. The hidden energy card is the Hierophant. The card sits in the position of Gardening = manifesting, planting, and reaping. 

I recognized a lot of good within other people, yesterday. I could see the light and energy travelling around them. Bringing them such great joy and wonderment. 

It took me a while to recognize my good. It was hidden within their great enjoyment. 

Maybe my good is the recognition that there is joy, love, and happiness all over the world. Hidden within the small moments of accomplishment. 

Your good is also there. You simply have to recognize it. I can not stress the fact that it may not look like what you want but it will be just what is needed. 

Now you stand within the power of that greatness. It is time to step into your mode of transportation and move forward, even if it looks like you are going no where. 
Sometimes the greatest movement within a person's life is simply taken with a thought. One single positive thought. 

I am joy. I am perfect. I am love. 

You will start to create your good. You will start to create what is needed. Source will be allowed to bring that state of perfection into your life. 

You must be your self. You must let those around you get to know that perfect person within. I advised you that opportunity is there but sometimes it is hidden behind the curtain. 
The same goes with the good within your life. 

Sometimes it is hidden behind the curtain. It is taking form and shape. 
You must keep living your life with the intent that there is only good within your life. That every step you take is within alignment of your Divine Plan. 

It is time to be gentle with your beautiful self. It is time to be gentle with that perfect person within. Your spirit is advising you to keep moving. There is work to be done. It is time to harvest the fruit of your labor. 

Your hard work is about to pay off. 
Simple things in life can turn out to be the greatest and most powerful. They can change your state of existence....
They can change them for the better. 

Sometimes you have to return to the beginning. To tradition. Have you lost your Faith?
I found it. 
It was there the whole time. It was simply covered beneath all the worry, doubt, and fear. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.26.13: A Great New Adventure is Beginning

Monday 8.26.13:

The card of the day is Ace of Coins. The hidden energy card is The Fool. The card sits in the position of Lucid Dream = awareness and opportunity. 

I want to change my method of delivering the message that Source is providing me with. I want to give you hope. I want to cause you to change in a positive way. 
This Mystic wants to give you great hope and inspiration by showing you that small mishaps can lead you to something wonderful. 

What is that something wonderful?
Well, that is for you to recognize. 

You have to step out of the small box of your boundaries and grow. 
The first step is always the hardest one to take. You fear the fall. 
Do not fear it. The fall is one of the greatest adventures on this plane of existence. 

I am walking this wonderful path of change. I am becoming me. 
To state this. To state "I exist". 
It can sometimes bring tears to my eyes. 

I want to advise you that when you open up your heart to the energy that is around you. To speak of love and joy. To choose existence. Then something wonderful takes place. 

Your good starts to reveal itself. 

Today the cards speak of prosperity. A new adventure of good. 
When things seem like they are falling apart. When they look like doo-doo. 
You must keep your head above water and keep on pushing forward. It is time to pull the band aid off of the cut. You are already healed. Why do you need the band aid?
Rip it off. The pain is short lived. 
You will notice that the cut is gone and a scar is left. This scar will remind you of the journey. The path you chose to take. It may not have been a path that others would follow you on but it is your path. The knowledge gathered on the journey is priceless. 

Now it is time to put that knowledge to use. It is time to create your wonderful greatness with the tools you have. 
The day is new. The hour is new. The minutes are new. And in turn so are you. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.25.13: Look Past the Dark of the Clouds.

Sunday 8.25.13:

The card of the day is Three of Swords. The hidden energy card is the World. The card sits in the position of Unicorn = innocence, trust, and honesty.

The ending of a cycle of heartache. Are you being honest with your spiritual self?

Is it really over?

Sometimes you want to hold onto that which has hurt you. The pain is always easier to process. The good can look scary. 

Pain is short lived. Grief can only happen for a short while. You can not live within the dark clouds of the three of swords. You must look beyond the storm. There is a patch of blue sky in the distance. The worry, doubt, and fear are coming to an end. The cycle is starting fresh. It is time to trust Source. 

Take that first step. 

Create your new path. 

It is time to shine. The sludge has been building up and the breakthrough has happened. Now it is time to exist within the sun light. Within the bright rays of life. 

The rest is just a detail. 

A small detail. 

Be happy. Be joy. Recognize that wonderful part of Source within. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.24.13: Success is Knocking at Your Door

Saturday 8.24.13:

The card of the day is Ace of Swords. The hidden energy card is Judgement. The card sits in the position of Lucid Dreaming = awareness and opportunities. 

When you lose momentum and decide to take a quick break, the path can become clear. The opportunity that was hidden behind the curtain will reveal itself to you. 
You will find peace and joy. 

Sometimes you have to stop what you are doing and focus. Meditate. Breathe. 

Success is knocking at your door. 
Answer the door. 

It is time to wake up from your nap. 
Do not rest for too long or you will surely miss out on something wonderful. Take a breather and get right back in the game. 

Even the strongest athlete has to rest for a moment. 
Your body will thank you. 
The vessel will be made whole again. The meter will be filled up. 

Can a car run on an empty tank?
Source is blinking the low gas light. Are you listening?
Are you going to try and make it to your destination on "E". 

It is time to fill up. Source is waiting to give you the energy to move forward. To bless you.

Success can be swift. It may even look painful because you will have to give up the old. 
I have learned that you must let go in order to receive. You can not hold on to things not needed and then expect to be able to grab the good in front of you. 

You will look like a stingy child. Wanting everything for them self. 
It is time to cut lose the chains that hold you to the ground. I saw Victory today. I realized it. I accepted it. I noticed that with or without it, I still existed. I was moving forward. I was living. 

It is time for you to live. Enjoy the rest of your day with the intent that all things are taken care of. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.23.13: Use the Elements to Break Through the Obstacle

Friday 8.23.13:

The card of the day is Ace of Cups. The hidden energy card is The Sun. The card sits in the position of Daydream = imagination, allow your mind to wander, and quiet time. 

Love enters into our life with great intent. The Sun will surely shine on our life. It is time to take on the stance of a mountain and meditate. 

Let the energy flow. Flow right through you and take on the form and state of your intent. The intent to exist. 

I forgot about my existence. My inner voice wishes to be heard. It wishes to speak up. 

"I am worthy!"

Worthy of all the good within my life. To acknowledge the stones of wisdom on my journey. The river of great energy. The trees of knowledge that line my pathway. The flowers that sing with great love. The animals that aid me on my journey. 

So many wonderful forms of Source are around you. 
Do you see it?
Are you noticing the beauty of life?

Your cup is overflowing with energy. It is time for you to put it to use. It is time to cast your spell. 
The day is calling your name. 

Good Morning! Hello! Bonjour! Buenos Diaz!

Sorry, I got carried away with joy. 

Sometimes you have to allow your attention to wander. To walk within the labyrinth of life. The many corridors of your mind. To get lost. To find peace. To sit within the center of the maze. To understand. 

To know that the Sun is always presented in our life. It may be hidden behind the moon at times. A total eclipse of the heart. I love that song.  
Is your Sun being hidden by the Moon?

Keep walking. The wolf may be howling. It may be warning you of danger ahead. 
Danger is short lived. 
It is simply an obstacle that we have projected into the future. Our past can creep up on us. You have the tools to move forward. It is time to use them. 

I think my spirit guides have been advising me of this great lesson. The tools are found within. They are not on the outside. It may be reflected in our environment but they are certainly laying deep within our spirit. 

Pull your weapon of choice. The ever present Sword of communication. The Wand of Fire. The Shield of Earth. The Cup of Divination Water. 

Use them to open a path up. To break down the obstacle before you. To write the next chapter of your life. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.22.13: Visit the Past

Thursday 8.22.13:

The card of the day is Six of Cups. The hidden energy card is The Moon. The card sits in the position of Summer = taking action, fruition, and intellect. 

Memories of past choices are trying to take control of your thoughts. 
I find myself clinging to the past. Just holding onto it with great force. 
I do not want to let go because then I would have to give up something.
What if the person who walks by and finds it, picks it up, and that one item becomes their fortune. 

"Hey! What about me?"
"I held onto it for the longest time. Why are they benefiting from my hard work?"

Yes, this enters into my mind all the time. 

When you are putting yourself out there, in order to be noticed, you are faced with great obstacles. How am I to think?
Will I go to my dark place and think, "Someone else is better than me and will surely receive that job that was meant for me."

This is the easiest route to take, for a negative thought is much easier to believe, and we are creatures of habit. 
Habitual negative thinking. 

I must change my thoughts. 

There is always more than enough. 
The spirits are advising me to be patient. That the time to strike is going to happen soon but I must wait at this moment. 
Wait for the perfect moment. 

Every moment is perfect. 
Every action is right on time. 

Every step I take is within alignment of my Divine plan. 

It is time to review our past. What is hidden within it?
What lesson are you reviewing? The journey is always hard when it is requiring us to grow. 
The abundance is there. Love is there. 
All of our necessities are being fulfilled. 

Do not stay too long within the past. It can smother you to death. It will leave you confused and in grief. 

You must always view the past like a movie. You can view it at any time but do it as a third person. View it like an anthropologist, by taking notes on what is happening, and forming a manual for the traveler within. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.21.13: Let Source Guide You on Your Path

Wednesday 8.21.13:

The card of the day is Authority = The Emperor. The hidden energy card is The Star. The card sits in the position of Dancing = self-expression and movement.

Are you keeping track of your goal?
The small twists and turns that keep you intertwined in the mischief of life. 

Which way are you headed?
Will you pick up the hitchhiker on the side of road?

It could be an angel. It could be a spirit guide. It could be the answer you have been searching for. 

When someone steps into your field of existence, they contain an answer to your question, that you have been asking for over a million years. 
The "Why".

The energy will be dominant. It will be Force. It will be male energy. 
The goal is set in the distance. Can you reach it?
Do you feel like you are in a dream sequence set in cartoon land, where you are running in place and the scene is moving behind you, while the goal is just within arms reach?

Yesterday, I was feeling this way. 

I am listening to Annie Lennox "Dark Road". When I moved to Washington for a short while, I use to listen to this song with my friend Nicole Catron, and we would feel a little better about the choice we made. The choice to be something spectacular. To be our whole perfect self. 

The song is about a person who explains her journey on the road of life. She is almost speaking to another person who wishes to love her. 
She speaks about the journey and how it may seem dark and at times she wishes to be whole again. 
The journey to her inner spirit is dark. Very twisted in nature and those who find it, may not find her at home, for she is out saving the world. 

To save this world. 

Sometimes our goal must be put away. Set high above on a shelf. To be looked at when moving through the spiritual plane with compassion. Sometimes you have to sacrifice one aspect of your life in order to aid another. Nothing is really lost. It only seems like a sacrifice. The goal will be fulfilled. It may take a year. It may take a century. It may even take a life time but you will reach it. 

The goal will be taken off the shelf and completed. What if the goal was not really the goal that you needed to complete? What if the goal was simply putting the goal on the shelf and moving forward?
This Mystic is moving a little to fast. That lesson is for another time and place. 

The energy is strong. Use it. Move forward with your dream. The dream to be you. Simple-old-everyday-you. The one who has always been present in the back of the room. The one who sits in silence at times, observing what is happening, in order to strike at the perfect time. 
Set a course on the map and allow Source to guide you on your journey. Prepare for the good in your life. Create joy. Create love. 
Express this through the simple tasks you perform. Make coffee for the whole group, not just for your self. Buy a stranger a piece of happiness. Give an extra hug to someone you love. Tell your partner that you love them. Tell it to them twice in a row.
The simple extra acts of compassion and kindness will push forward with force. They will reach their destination as well as you. With great intent you will be propelled in a direction of hope. In a direction towards the Star in front of you. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.20.13: Time to Invite Opportunity into Your House

Tuesday 8.20.13:

The card of the day is Nine of Coins. The hidden energy card is the Tower. The card sits in the position of Blue = communication and Inner Truth. 

When good enters into your life and things work out in one swift motion, then things begin to look spectacular. You see only the good in the wonderful people around you. 

To speak of good leads you to more good. 

You may find yourself stuck in the disruption of life. You may only see the destruction that lies ahead. 

The energy can be strong and might make you feel like something bad will take place. 
Sometimes it can be the fear of what will come next. 
Fear of the possibility that good will take place. 

Now that the opportunity has taken place, and is revealed, the outcome can be short lived. We do not stop thinking wonderful thoughts after our desire has been met. We keep on thinking. What is the next big adventure? 

You must keep moving forward. You must keep thinking positive. Always remember what you have at this very moment. The joy. The love. The peace. 
It is within your environment. 

Do not let a little mishap break down your thoughts of greatness. 
There will always be some sort of chaos within your life. The greatest lesson you can learn, is how you handle it, and what you will do during the time of change. 

There may be an overflow of money and material items but they can also be lost or broken at any time. 
Your spirit must be fed with spiritual fruit. 
Knowledge of Truth. 
It is time to speak about that Truth and see what happens. 
There is only good in your life. There is only positive movement. There is only love. 

Opportunity is knocking at your door. I think it is time you put on a party hat and invite opportunity in, so that it can add to the party you are having right now. At this very moment. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.19.13: Are You Listening to Your Ego or Intuition?

Monday 8.19.13:

The card of the day is The Universe. The hidden energy card is The Devil. The card sits in the position of Red = passion and survival. 

Have you ever stressed out over something small?

To look at what is "lack of"?

I find my Ego wants to point out the frayed ends on the fabric of time. 
Who cares if they are frayed? 

My Ego is trying to advise me to stop. To give up. Why try anymore?
Your Ego is probably doing the same. 
Do you keep on moving?

Some will state, "Well your intuition might be warning you and it may not be your Ego."

Very true. You must always listen to your intuition but let us look at how we are feeling. When your Ego is speaking you will feel worry, doubt, and fear. You will feel as if there is no hope in this world. 
When your intuition is speaking, with Divine Guidance, then you will feel as if something is out of place. Something is just not right and you need to move, create, or change. It is a different feeling. You will feel complete once the choice is made with clear intuition. Where as you would feel incomplete when the choice is made with the Ego. 

The cycle of doubt is coming to an end. The opportunity, that was hidden behind the curtain, will now be revealed. 

Will you be surprised?
Will you be reassured?

The good is being revealed to you every day, in every moment, through out your wonderful day. Take this time to receive what is needed. Once you recognize that you are worthy, within this very moment, then things start moving in a direction of love and good. 

Everything will work out in your favor. 
Doubt, worry, and fear will get you no where. 
They will keep you tied to the ground. It is time to fly. It is time to travel. 
Where do you want to go?

Blessed Be. 

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.18.13: Opportunity is Knocking at Your Door

Sunday 8.18.13:

The card of the day is Two of Wands. The hidden energy card is The Hierophant. The card sits in the position of Fire = transformation and purification. 

This entry is very late. I went to a friend's house for a small gathering. 

Opportunity can be small and change can be large. You can get lost within the swept up motion of change and opportunity. 

Opportunity can look like a mistake. It can look like the wrong season. The wrong place in time. The wrong package. 
Opportunity can be of shadow. It can muster up pain and heartache. 
You do not recognize the true identity of opportunity until the good has happened. 

I have to recognize my good and my opportunity. Change your thoughts and you will find a brand new day hidden in your pocket. 

As I sat with my friends, and talked about the past, I found myself smiling. 

Opportunity is always knocking at your door. The real question is "Are you home?"

Have you checked into your life?
Do you want to move forward?

When we realize that there is only good in our life, and count the many blessings we have now, then change will surely start to mirror that thought. 

You do not have to find the opportunity. Simply allow it to take effect. Know that you are worthy of joy, love, and peace. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.17.13: The Truth is Revealed

Saturday 8.17.13:

The card of the day is Five of Coins. The hidden energy card is The Fool. The card sits in the position of Mirror = truth revealed.

The mirror and the five of coins together are really stressing the fact that you can sometimes over look the answer, even though it is sitting right in front of you.

Sometimes we wish to ignore the answer because it will mean that we have to return to something we want to forget.
Or that we have left a certain place in order to move forward. 

The answer is always right in front of you. You simply have to recognize it. 
I will try my hardest to ignore the truth when I know it is something I do not want to do. I want to avoid it at the moment because I think that the experience will be bad. 

In the Artist's Tarot, the five of coins, shows a woman turning away from her knowledge. She is turning away from Source. Usually a traditional card will show a person or people outside of a church. Either walking away or walking towards the entrance. They are seeking shelter from the snow. 
Are you walking towards the sanctuary of Source or turning away from it? 
Are you in fear of the Truth or will you relish in it?

The Truth can sometimes seem like it will cause pain. It can sometimes leave us dealing with the consequences of our action. 

Are you afraid that you have done something wrong?

Look within. Look within the mirror of Love and Truth. You will see that by accepting and recognizing the Truth, it will bring only good. It is time to walk in the light. 

It is okay for you to step into the shadow for a bit but eventually you will need to step into the Sun. 
The path is being revealed to you. Will you take your first step or will you  pause in fear of your new adventure?

Sometimes the light may seem just out of reach. You know the truth must be revealed but it is a few inches away from your existence. Maybe you must use the mirror in order to reflect the light towards you. In order to catch a ray of light and shine it on your path of life. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.16.13: Balancing the Need to Survive While a Path is Ending

Friday 8.16.13:

Dreams contain hidden messages. Dreams can leave you confused. What we can not deal with in our environment, you better be sure that they will be dealt with in your dreams. 

I had a weird dream last night. I was remembering what I did in the past. On a cruise ship at night. While others were occupied with a show happening down stairs, I walked to a secluded area and had a midnight secret meeting. 

I did not know the person by features but I knew them by the essence of their soul. 

The card of the day is Two of Coins. The hidden energy card is the World. The card sits in the position of Red = passion and survival. 

I must be calm during this time of great change. I must listen to my spirit guide. I must let Source take control and lead me to where I am to go. 

All things are perfect. Every step I take is within alignment of my Divine Plan. I am love. 

Simple statements that can create powerful change. 
Know your self worth. 

The two of coins reminds me of the word "balance". What are you balancing?
What is not in balance?
Is there an aspect of your life that needs attention?

My spiritual practice is calling out to me "Hey you! Gets to Meditating!"

I think I should listen. 
I have been neglecting my meditation practice. 

I was speaking to a friend yesterday, regarding what makes a person a professional, and I wanted to state "Who decides what a professional is? If you wake up every morning and can only think of drawing and painting, then you are a professional artist."

The same goes for Tarot readers or Spiritual Advisers. If you wake up every morning and you are thinking about what the cards speak of or helping others on their path, then you are a Professional. There are two sides to every story. 
The other part of this story also includes that a person should read, read, read! Know information regarding your craft and stick with what works best for you. Pick up the pieces that ring true within your spirit and let the rest sit on the sidelines. Never forget it, for it will be used later in life at some point in time. Trust me on this. 

Information has a weird way of popping up during a conversation. You will look at yourself and think, "What the heck! Where did that come from?"

Your path will be balanced. It may not be with loads of cash but it will contain an abundance of material items that you need. 
The week is not over. The answer is there. We shall see it in the coming days. All I can do at this moment is state, "There is only good in my life. I recognize that good."

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.15.13: The Information is There

Thursday 8.15.13:

The card of the day is Third Eye Chakra. The hidden energy card is Judgement. The card sits in the position of Nettle = boundaries and caution. 

Such a wonderful day. 
Sometimes you have to really push forward with who you are and what you believe in. Sometimes you must step off the ledge and jump into opportunity. 

There are times when things just do not work out in your favor. Or do they?

Maybe you have not received exactly what you were expecting. Source has other plans. Did you know that if you were to walk around this wonderful world and state "There is always more than enough" when you saw the lack of an item. 

No pencils in sight?
There is always more than enough. 

No more fries?
There is always more than enough. 

Everything happens for a reason. The information is there. 
It may not feel right at that very moment but it is perfect. Did you know that?

To allow things to take place. To allow the very moment to unfold. 
What surprises you will find. 

The energy was about information of good things. A new way of thinking. 

I woke up this morning upset. Don't know why, I just did. 
I decided to search for information and answers. I received them. I asked and there was the information. Was I upset?
Nope. I new that as long as things were being taken care of then it would all work out in my favor. 
The person who helped me was awesome. 
I thought to myself "I should have done this a long time ago". 
I wanted to blame someone for my lack of self worth. 

I really had to let it go. 

I needed to take charge of my own self worth. 
I needed to set my boundaries. Advise those around me that "I can" and "I will". 
Sometimes we have to stick up for our self in a healthy way. 
In a loving way. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.14.13: Step Into The Light

Wednesday 8.14.13:

The card of the day is Base Chakra . The hidden energy card is The Sun. The card sits in the position of Daydream = imagination, allow your mind to wander, and quiet time.

If you decide that today you will worry about the things you need, then you will be in constant turmoil all day. Maybe you have just enough gas to get you from point A to point B. Then you are blessed to have enough to make it to your destination. Maybe you have just enough to buy a head of lettuce. Then you have enough to feed you for a day. 

The primal needs that linger in the Base Chakra can cause you to worry. 
Worry about what is not within your field of existence. 

I was advised, yesterday, to let the regret go. It is holding me back. 
I must accept the actions and consequences that are attached. 

Sometimes your choices are either left (a hungry wolf) or right (a starving wolf). Which one is the least worst of the two?

A choice must be made. 
Which will you choose?

You will win with either one. The Sun card speaks of victory. Home. Happiness. 

There is always light on your path. Whether it is from the street lamp above or in the lamp that you carry. 
The light is always shinning. 
The light is always left on for you. 

Sometimes returning home can be difficult. I know that I can feel beat. I can feel defeated. It is not until I hear what happened next at the place I have left. The outcome. It is not until I have moved forward, and then by certain chance an update is given, that everything makes sense. 

It is time for you to let go of your primal needs. You will be fed. You will have enough to live. Things will work out in your favor. It is time to see what the end result is. It is only of good. What do you want?
What is your home?
Now that you have found it, what is your next great adventure?
Where does it begin?
Does it start with a line? A stroke? A waltz?

The sun is surely shinning and you are more than welcome to step into it. Be healed. Receive light. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.13.13: The Key is Found

Tuesday 8.13.13:

The card of the day is Awareness = The Magician. The hidden energy card is The Moon. The card sits in the position of Full Moon = completion and culmination. 

Round and Round. 

The energy is about completion. Movement in a circular motion. The ending of certain cycles and the beginning of a new one. 

The Magician brings about the recognition of Tools. 

A Tool that you have been looking at and stating "What the heck is this for?"
Yes. What is it used for?
Sometimes the key is simply a key that opens a door in the near future. Do you discard it in the trash?
Something is advising you to hold onto it. You forget about it and also you forget where you have put it. 
When you return, you find, that the tool is no where to be found. 

Hmmm. Where did you put the damn thing?
I know! I know!

It is right where you left it!
Yes, it is a simple answer and also the most obvious. 
You will see it when the time is right. 

My friend Beatrice was advising me, the other day, that she had lost her keys. She turned to her patron saint Anthony for a little help. She said she looked for her keys in the freezer (which is a weird place to put them, but I do not question the actions of my friends) ten times. After a little bit of prayer, she returned to the freezer once more, and there the keys lay. In plain sight. Right in front. They were ready to be found. 

This is what the day shall bring. You may look for that key or tool all over your spiritual house. You may even attempt to look in the same spot many times. In the end, when your spirit is ready, the key (tool) will be found. 

Remember that it may not look like what you had intended it to be. It may be taped together. Held in one form by a single hair. The item will work. It will be used. It may be a one time shot or it may work for you again, later down the road. You must be thankful that it is still whole. 

There are items in our life that must break. They are no longer needed. They have no more meaning in our life. It is time to move on. 

The two constant items in our life are change and movement. You may think that nothing is happening but there is activity behind the curtain of your life. Hidden behind the shroud of Fate. 

It is time to state the unseen. 
"There is only good within my life."
"There is only love. "
"I am a wonderful and great person with the power to co-create my need in this life. That need is awesome. That need is great and I give thanks."

It is time to release your wonderful words of good into the Universe. It is time to use the key to open a new door. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.12.13: Let's Make a Deal

Monday 8.12.13:

The card of the day is Four of Cups. The hidden energy card is The Star. The card sits in the position of Travel = journey, path, and location. 

Are you feeling lost on your path?
I know that I can feel a little confused and misguided. The path can sometimes change mid step. It can become a dead end zone or twist down a path of destruction. It can look scary. 

What do you do?

When the path is unclear. When things just look muddled and clouded. You must step forward. 
Push on. Move in a circular motion like the moon and stars. 

Today speaks about the illusion of that which sits before us. The path may have changed but are you willing to move with that change?
Are you willing to cross the river that is before you?
It is not deep. 
Even if it was, you would still survive. Believe me, the spirit can breathe under water. 

The energy is taking on many answers. So many to choose from. Which path should you choose?

So many questions. 
Be silent. 
Be still. 

The spirits are always speaking. They talk to you through feelings. They speak to you through signs. 
If you were to wait a moment, lose the fear, and listen; then surely you will receive an answer. 

Can you hear them?
Move to the left. Look to the right. 
Take Shelter!
A storm is brewing!

No matter. The answer can sometimes be simple. Just like the much needed items from last week, it can be small in size. There will be a moment of choice. This week will be like the game show "Let's make a deal". 
"Are you going to take the money in my hand or pick what's behind door number 3?"

It was based off of pure chance. The answer was sitting in front of you, within the hand of the show host, but you could choose what was behind the door and take a chance. It could be a new car or a mule. 
I always play it safe. I would have taken the cash. 
Funny how I would play it safe, when I always take what is behind door number 3, with my spiritual journey. I usually give up the security of physical items and go for the gamble of what is behind the door. It is always good. No "Wah, Wah" allowed. Everything is beneficial with spiritual lessons. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.11.13: The Greatest Gift.

Sunday 8.11.13:  

The card of the day is Ace of Swords. The hidden energy card is The Tower. The card sits in the position of Astral Travel = Vital Force, information, and Dream Time soul travel.

The weekend entries have been short. That is okay. The message has been created with Truth. 

The clouds are parting. The wind is blowing. The Sun is setting. What happens next?

A new week begins. The cards must be drawn. Flipped in sequence and turned with great delight. 

We have had a great week. Frustration was found in the beginning, but with a little effort and positive thinking, we found peace and comfort. 

There are times when you forget the tool of destruction that you have hidden in your back pocket. You forget that change is constant and that we are always moving. No matter how hard you wish to stay the same, the heavens are circling your very own force of nature. 

You are the brightest star. You create the good in your life. 

I have been advising you of this. There is only good in your life. See it. Recognize it. 
It may be small in nature. 
It may be small in size. 
It is not weak. 
You can move mountains. Try. 
The week ahead looks great. It is your turn to roll the dice and receive your good. 

Destruction is a good thing. The fall is a blessing. A lovely blessing in disguise. Without it, you would have never found the strength to achieve the impossible. 
And that is the greatest gift in the world. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.10.13: See Your Good

Saturday 8.10.13: 

The card of the day is Awareness = The Magician. The hidden energy card is The Lovers. The card sits in the position of Obsidian = grounding and shielding. 

Sometimes you ask Source for a sign. You ask for Divine Intervention. I had to remember the energy of the week. That what we need may not show up how we want it to. Sometimes you must complain. Sometimes you can not stay positive and upbeat every moment. 

Maybe you are frustrated. I was this morning. I really needed to throw a tantrum. I let it go. I put my Faith in the flow of energy. It was hard. 

The frustration with the process was taking over. 

Then great things happened. My needs were met. They did not show up as expected. Then again they never do. 

But the good was recognized. 

We contain the tools needed to keep our choices grounded to good. To keep it attached. It is time for you to use them. No matter how frustrated you get, the tools are always there. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.9.13: Allow the Shedding of the Old Vessel to Take Place

Friday 8.9.13:

The card of the day is the Three of Wands. The hidden energy card is The Hierophant. The card sits in the position of Summer = Taking action, fruition, and intellect. 

There was a lot of opportunity within my environment today. It may not have come in the fashion of money. It may not have come within the fashion of major abundance. It did show itself within the details of my life. 

Opportunity can be slippery. It can be side swiping. It may lay beneath the cracks of the cement. It may sleep in the dark. Opportunity can be hidden behind the curtain. 

Following rules and regulations can be frustrating.
"If they only could see me in person and know that I am worth so much". 
This was my thought as I was taking a test. 

We have to jump through hoops every once in a while. We have to see what is on the other side of the ring of fire. The world can seem hazed. Flames and smoke can be scary. 
Do you think the Phoenix is afraid to transform?

I think that the Phoenix is tired of waiting around for the transformation to begin. The vessel is weak and the outcome is already known. I would be frustrated and think "Come on already! Change!"

I laugh as I write this because this Hermit can get very frustrated with the journey. I am only human. 
Even with all the packs of Tarot Cards, and Oracle decks, the answers all seem the same. Patience...

Why do we have to wait? 
I have gone over this before. 

Today is about recognizing the small detail of opportunity. Whether it is taking an Excel test to see how well you know it, or having just enough money to buy the ingredients in order to cook dinner for the night, remember that Source will provide. Everything happens for a reason, and that reason is always good. 

I may not have received that wonderful job just yet, but I keep reminding those around me, that it is surely my turn to receive great news. I think this puts me back in the mindset of "abundance of" rather than "lack of". 

We must always be prepared for the good in our life to be revealed, rather than wait for the next negative thing to happen. 
I wonder what life would be like if we were prepared for only good?
I think we would relish in the delight of great enjoyment. To know that Source is always providing. 

That wonderful job is there. Maybe it is hidden beneath the cement. Maybe it is being constructed behind the curtain. Maybe it is waiting for the cue from the orchestra to make its grand entrance. 
One thing is for sure. It is there. Your good is also present. You may not see it but you can feel it. When you become frustrated with what is being presented, then you should find the good within it, for you are surely on your Divine Path. Be like the Phoenix and understand that Transformation will take place. You simply have to allow the shedding of the old vessel to happen. 

Blessed Be.

The Nature of Today's Energy 8.8.13: A Little Help on a New Path of Greatness.

Thursday 8.8.13:

The card of the day is Solitude = The Hermit. The hidden energy card is The Fool. The card sits in the position of Angels = support and guidance.

After my temper tantrum, yesterday, I am ready to walk my new path of greatness. The Hermit speaks about that path...wait. 

The cards have key words and I have been overlooking them this whole time. 
Let us take a look at the cards. 

Angels = help
Hermit = path
Fool = new step

Put them all together and the cards are speaking of a little help on a new path of greatness. 

Key words can tell the story. Pictures can tell the story. The emotions you get from the cards can tell the story as well. 

The day speaks of our first initial steps on that wonderful new path. The spirits are always around us. Guiding us on our journey. Advising us of what is to come. 

My spirit guide keeps advising me to be patient. 
I did not want to listen to her yesterday. I was upset. 
I was proven wrong. 

Sometimes we need to be distracted so that the good in our life can manifest. If we focus on one single goal and keep thinking "When will it take place?", then we are not allowing that good to happen. It holds it back for we are thinking with the thought process of "lack of". 

Sometimes we must get upset and complain, so that we can take our attention off of the current goal, and place it on something so small and insignificant. 
That small insignificant item is much more important than you think.
It requires us to change our thought process. Our focus is no longer on the task at hand. The attention is no longer on the state of frustration. You move it to something of delight. You move it to something you want to do. 

The day before I decided to go and get a doughnut. I had been doing so well and losing weight. I only need five pounds. I was frustrated with everything else and I deserved to be happy. Happy about what I was doing. I jumped in the car and drove to the greatest doughnut shop in Ventura. I ordered doughnut holes and a glazed twist. Delish! 

Yesterday may have been a day of complaining but a wonderful thing happened. My partner received an email, confirming that he was hired to work at a wonderful place of employment. It was so wonderful. Now it is my turn. 

I needed that message of good news. I needed to snap out of my state of doubt and fear. I needed to realize that sometimes we do not see what is going on behind the curtain. Remember that The Ace of Cups is setting the stage. An abundance of Love. 

Let us keep that message in mind. 
An abundance of Love.
Source is always supplying us with it. I know that it is time for the good to be noticed. 

Blessed Be.
