What is my current path requiring?

If you are drawn to read this Tarot Spread then know there is guidance offered for you also. We are all connected and we never travel alone.

Your Main Priority at Present:

Queen of Wands Tarot, queen of wands, tarot reading, free, free reading, psychic, healing, love, life, life purpose, career

Tarot Message: The Queen of Wands knows what she wants and where she is going, she is able to express herself freely to the world without worrying about what others think of her. She tells you that you are going through a stage of magnetic energy and it needs expression. Don’t deny yourself the right to be as accomplished as you want, it’s time to dive in with nothing to lose. Your qualities of optimism, leadership, being self-assured and upbeat will help you now.

Awakening Angels: Your priority has been your inner work and now it is moving to more of how you see yourself in the world. The expression and solidification of your inner work. It’s about your true work here on this planet, and learning about love, kindness and compassion, and the expression of these as purpose. How can you make this even more of a priority in your life? Are there any aspects of your life where you are blocking love? How well do you receive compassion and kindness from others?

It’s time for honouring your highest path, and about gearing everything towards your goal. You know what your goal is, and it’s time for you to live, breathe and commune with it. It’s more about revealing it / you more fully to the world. No more hiding back when it suits you, the Queen of Wands tells you to be all in.

What is Blocking You?

Three of Swords Tarot, three of swords, tarot reading, free, free reading, psychic, healing, love, life, life purpose, career, heart break, relationships

Tarot Message: This is pointing towards a matter of the heart, where feelings of rejection are lingering. You may carry within you, feelings of being let down or being hurt, and this has resulted in a lingering feeling that others can hurt you. You may fear losing those you love, fear rejection and / or fear loneliness. When you see this card as a blockage card it’s time to use your mind to face matters of the heart, no matter how old they might appear to be. It’s time to recognise we never suffer alone, and reviewing old wounds perhaps only for a moment, can heal them of being a negative driving force hidden in our depths. Be free of these fears and you shall soar!

Awakening Angels: There is pain in your heart, an old wound perhaps that still impacts you. It occasionally leads you to doubt yourself, and you hold back a little. It’s like you hold this a little against yourself, as though you were some how at fault or lesser than because of it. This was not the case, and you don’t need to view yourself as anything less than divine. You can express and expose your heart fully now, it’s time to ease back the veil and be strongly vulnerable once more. For you can’t move forward fully until this is done. Call for the pain and wounding to rise up from your subconscious, for you can handle it now and bring it into your arms for love. It shall evolve this way.

Things You can Change?

Seven of Coins

Tarot message: This card is prompting you to evaluate where you are, and to check in with your original goal and ensure you are still on target. What were your original intentions? Be prepared for things to change, don’t be too rigid. This card prompts you to take a step back and even a break, so you can view it from a fresh perspective. It may be that you’ve been so engrossed in your work or focus that you’ve forgotten to take stock fo the results so far.

Awakening Angels: You can change the heartbreak that you’ve carried within you, and you can also change any deep sense of feeling alone. Often when we think at a different level, or understand the world in a way that is different to the majority we can feel a sense of longing for our own people, so to speak. You can find more of ‘your people’, even where you live and in your world. Connections with people will also bring more fruit to your trees, more abundance in money even though this may not be your goal. Your heart longs for more and going to things that interest you can bring opportunities to you that help all areas of your life.

Things You must Accept?

The Hanged Man

Tarot Message: It is time to accept that a step back is in order. You may not want to, or you may be wanting to push forward, but you are at a crossroads in your approach and you may have to stand back and look carefully at all the issues involved. The Hanged Man tells us to literally view everything in an opposing way than how we’ve been seeing it. Turn it on its head, shake it all up. Perhaps you’ve been stuck in thinking there is only the one way to go, however there are many. And there are roads which might be more fun, more loving, more enlightening than the perceives direct route that you’re on. Challenge yourself to step back.

Awakening Angels: It might be time to accept that a break is in order. To put your hands up in their air, just for a time and have some fun. Connect with the people you love and the people you laugh with.

How Things will Progress?

Wheel of Fortune Tarot, wheel of fortune, tarot reading, free, free reading, psychic, healing, love, life, life purpose, career, heart break, relationships

Tarot Message: This card is all about luck and chance, but we know that doesn’t really exist in the way it is commonly thought. It is synchronicity and alignment.

This card invites you to an take your hands off the reigns and not work so hard, your goals are destined and are not as hard to reach as you might have once envisaged. It’s also prompting you to take a chance, especially when it comes to love and matters of the heart. Be open to unexpected events in all areas of your life as this brings forth change for the better.

Awakening Angels: There is partnership and connections coming up for you. This will bring more fullness of heart, more uncontrollable aspects into your life which will be good for you. You have a beautiful heart and it has the ability to let even more people and life into its inner realms. You can take on different roles as you are in tune with the feminine and masculine, you are in tune with the shamanic consciousness in all things and you enjoy life on this level. Welcome it all in with open arms and you shall be rewarded, take the blinkers off and feel free to change course.

With love,

Sharon

A Lesson From Pushy Patrons

blog, awakening, eckhart tolle, life lessons, ego mind, cafe, ocean, consciousOur interactions with people can be our greatest teachers. And yesterday I was taught a big lesson. I’d taken myself off to a cafe to treat myself to some sacred ‘me time’ with a muffin, tea and a book. I sat on a high table which permitted me a clear view of other patrons in the cafe as well as out to the ocean. It was perfect.

However it wasn’t long until my perfect scenario was quashed. I’d sat at the big centre table which was shared by other people. I was seated in the middle and along came three people who sat opposite me, completely obstructing my view to the ocean.

I became a little peeved, however decided it was time to order. I got up, leaving my book and jacket to mind my spot, and went to order at the counter. Once ordered I strolled back to where I’d been sitting only to find one of the three people had actually moved to a seat that was literally pushed up against mine. There was hardly any room for me now and I felt a little strange that they had done this when I’d gone up to order. I felt like they were crowding me on purpose to push me out. My mind was firing off all sorts of scenarios.

I pushed back (obviously in reactive ego-state) and re-claimed my seat. My arm was literally touching his and I felt his big energy dominating mine. Now I was definitely peeved. If I moved my chair further away from him I would literally be pushed up against a pole and have all my table space taken away with the pole and vase which was on the table. And that wasn’t even the point. I was there first.

After a few uncomfortable minutes I decided I would move, as it dawned on me that I was choosing to stay in a situation that was impeding my enjoyment. It took a lot for me to move, but I did so. Staring down at the table stewing in my own thoughts, I waited for the intruders to apologise, or at least offer a sympathetic smile. No such luck. In fact it was quite the opposite, the man moved and spread out even more, enjoying the extra space he’d gained.

Sitting with nothing but my own thoughts, I breathed. I took stock of what was going on and I remembered an enlightening idea from Eckhart Tolle that teaches us the purpose of relationships (which could be interpreted as all interactions with other people) as being to become conscious. Not for fulfillment, happiness, joy, etc. The only true purpose to seek in relationships is to help highlight areas within ourselves that we are asleep and unconsciously reacting, and then it is our job to bring these areas into the light of our conscious awareness.

That is the function of a conscious relationship.

As I looked up to reflect upon the lesson, I noticed how in moving to the other side of the pole, I again had a view of the ocean. There were also stunning flowers sprouting from the vase on the table which perfectly framed my view. It was beautiful.

It dawned on me that the place where I now sat was ideal, in fact it was more than ideal than what I had chosen for myself moments earlier, and the universe had gifted it to me. I had nearly missed it due to my unwillingness to look past what my ego thought was happening.

The universe had guided me to move places through an interaction with other people, and what it presented to me was something better than what I had chosen for myself (along with the lesson).

This is life. That’s the way the universe works. However, we limit ourselves by attempting to control our lives from the narrow view-point of our own perspective.

If only we would surrender control and resistence to reality, then we could walk with greater ease into potentially a better experience than one we might have envisaged for ourselves.

 

 

Cosmic Play

spiritual awakening, sudden awakening, wake up, dream reality, acim, a course in miracles, eli jaxon-bear, quote, waking up, dream, growthWhen you realize yourself as completely empty and devoid of all form, this is wisdom.

When you realize yourself as the fullness of love overflowing itself without object, this is bliss.

And when you are aware of yourself incarnate in the appearance of form, this is leela.

-by Eli Jaxon-Bear

The word Leela is used because there is said to be no exact or accurate translation. It is a Sanskrit word that means ‘play’ however not as we know it. It is cosmic or divine play, as we would if we truly knew this were an illusion with no consequence but to keep us spinning around rising and falling in and out of illusory pain.

 

 

Why we dream.

Last night I had a dream that was so real and vivid, it was an all-encompassing sensory experience. I was eating octopus. It wasn’t what I wanted or what I thought it was, and the sudden realisation I had tentacles in my mouth was disgusting. I ran to the bathroom and spat them out in the sink.

I still remember the taste, (I know, weird thing to dream about – and it was more twisted than that with a flavoursome freudian skew but I’ll spare those details). It was disgusting and bits and pieces were stuck in my mouth. I vividly remember reaching my fingers into my mouth and pulling tentacles out, throwing them into the porcelain bowl. The resounding feelings were shock and disgust.

Dreams fascinate me. Many people have gone down in history theorising their purpose, right from being that which our subconscious cannot integrate from our day thrown back up to us calling out for healing and understanding. Others say that it’s relating to ourselves and our life in metaphors, with hidden meanings and messages. Others have said they are meaningless.

But what if they were our teachers? For years now I’ve been enthralled by the idea of the dream reality. A Course in Miracles teaches us that Oneness is literal and our reality is smoke and mirrors created by a single thought. That none of it is real and it’s all a fantasical light show created by yours truly. And when this idea triggers people, it’s hard to fathom that it could possibly be true.

Yet our dreams occur each night, at the transition from one day to the next, offering us an experience of a reality where, in the thick of it, we do not know we are dreaming. We forget. And the people in our dream seem separate to us, they chase us, they harm us. Our emotions feel real, we feel hurt, shame, sickness, panic. All of the emotions of life. We feel real fear for our safety and often we live within the confines of what we believe to be possible, using our legs for running or finding a car that we can drive.

And then we wake up.

The relief, it was just a dream.

We let go of the pain the other people or characters in our dream caused us (even if they were people from our current life) under the rationale that it was just a dream. There can even be some embarrassment when we study the phenomena that we created all of it ourselves. No-one else was there at all. The pain, the shame, the chase – was all played out by characters we’d created, puppets that we were leading. But it felt so real, didn’t it?

It really felt like they were doing something to me!

But it was all me.

There is a great Taoist parable called The Butterfly Dream. It goes something like this;

Once upon a time I had a dream that I was a butterfly, fluttering here and there, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was only conscious of my happiness and experience as a butterfly and unaware of any other life I may have been leading. Soon enough, I awakened. And there I was, a man again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or a butterfly dreaming I was a man. Between a man and a butterfly there was no distinction.

Some time back when I was deep in meditation I had an experience where I was confiding to my trustee guides that people had been mean to me. I was very upset and stated my case. My perspective then zoomed way out and I saw that I was the only person and I was asleep. There were many guides and angels by my side, encircling me with love and support, yet I was asleep and I was the only person in the cosmos. The only human in existence. No one could have possibly done anything to me in reality because it was only me. There was no-one else.

I feel the purpose of our dreams is to serve as a constant reminder that while this reality may feel real, it is not. And we’ve been missing the message because we’re lost in it. We’re lost in the dream. We are convinced it is real. My story is real. My pain is real. How could it not be?

What are your thoughts on the dream reality?

Expand our consciousness

story, inspiring, life, spirit, lesson, help, how to, I want to share a short and powerful fable which offers our minds a glimpse into the potential ability to expand our consciousness and our lives. I have come to learn that we tend to live within the confines of what we are willing to believe, and more and more I am realising that what I previously believed to be true about myself and the world I live in, may not be the way it really is.

Mostly I still play this game of life by the rules in which have been handed down to me, but the cracks are forming and the walls of my perceived foundation are beginning to crumble. I am on a mission to expand and spread my wings so far that they break through the confines of those walls, and when they fall, I will be able to experience reality as it truly is: miraculous.

The Story:

There was a mighty lion, Janro, who was born in a small zoo. As she grew, she made it a point to investigate, as best she could, all of the aspects of the world around her. All of the other lions in this zoo had been born in captivity as well.

One day, another lion was added to the group, but she was captured in the wild. When she spoke of the vast savannas, the tall, spreading trees, the birds in the sky, and the other wonders she knew of, Janro and the others scoffed. “How could this be!” They would exclaim.

“We’ve had plenty of time to investigate this world. We know precisely the limits of our cages, what other kinds of animals there are, where we came from, and how we get fed. What you are telling us is preposterous! Prove it!”

Has anybody been through a period of upheaval recently?

2015, lunar eclipse, energies, shift, help, how to, 444, 222, 11:11We moved house last week which was a big period of change, like it is for anyone, but as go the energies of this year – it didn’t pan out as planned…

As soon as we moved we were informed our new rental might not be the long term place we’d originally thought it to be, and in fact that we might have to move again.

Interestingly though it’s not just me who’s been experiencing periods of great change and upheaval. For many of us 2015 has become the year of surprises. Astrologers have been talking about intense energies that have been at play for a while, but which (thankfully) are meant to be turning and shifting, closing down the tumultuous pulse, and spiraling into a new phase tonight, with the lunar eclipse.

But what feels like the only constant in the past few crazy months, has become the lesson of acceptance. I asked a little while ago (not to anyone in particular, but more to the universe and my soul) to understand acceptance – total ultimate, unconditional acceptance – and ever since then everything has become a surprise. I try to plan (yeah I know – plan and god laughs…) and as soon as I believe everything is going one way I end up being surprised at every turn. And it’s as though the only thing I can plan for is knowing that everything will change.

So having just moved into our new house we’ve spent the past few days looking at houses… But I’m getting better at it, not at looking at houses, but better at acceptance. It’s all okay. I’m learning. And I’ve realised that my ego still loves to rise up and latch onto future events and it seems every time I do that events don’t turn out how I’ve thought they were going to. I’m and many of us, are being taught that we can’t keep allowing our ego to drive the ship. It’s time to retire the old gal.

And I keep hearing the taoist allegory about the farmer and his son, going round and round in my head. Hmm are they trying to tell me something? Ya think….

Here is the story for you too, because maybe you are right here reading this post because you are being guided to learn something helpful for your own life.

The story is about old farmer who had worked his crops for many years.

One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbours came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.

“May be,” the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. “How wonderful,” the neighbours exclaimed.

“May be,” replied the old man.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbours again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune.

“May be,” answered the farmer.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbours congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.

“May be,” said the farmer.

I, like many people, am being reminded that everything is the same -and that’s okay. Nothing is good nor bad, and as soon as we judge it to be either one we can be sure our ego is at play. And we just can’t get away with ego-living anymore – especially when we’ve declared we want to help and evolve, be a light worker or a healer, or therapist, or a kind person. Whatever direction we are taking it’s time for the soul to be our guiding force. Living any other way will no longer be smooth, enjoyable or even do-able.

It’s time for the ultimate shift. ego, eckhart tolle, how to, power of now, acceptance, learn, 2015, life, energy, psychic

I can see how much I’d labelled the new house as ‘good’. ‘Great’ in fact. To the point that I couldn’t wait to move and I was living within my mind, very much in the future. In a future place that was deemed better than my current place – my current moment.

In conclusion, the lesson I am learning big time for 2015 is acceptance of what is. Radical, limitless acceptance of everyone and everything and every moment as it is. No judgement, no ego-driven future filled with better times to look forward to. Just now, just as it is. Reality.

Do you catch yourself thinking about how everything will be good soon? Or how you will be happy, successful, or have more time in the future?

Can you recognise when your ego-mind is at play?
