This week's reading: Nine of Cups, Cornflower Blue, and Something bigger is on the way.
NINE OF CUPS: THE WILD UNKNOWN TAROT DECK BY KIM KRANS
Boy am I glad to see you!! When I first saw this card come up, I was not terribly surprised to see a nine as nines tend to be the cards of completion. I've had a lot of completion in my life lately. I've said goodbye to patterns, old ways of operating and beliefs about myself that have been holding me back. It has not been an easy or painless process. In fact, the past nine months have been some of the most challenging, difficult and emotional in my entire life. This year also marks 9 years since I met and went on the first date with my amazing husband Hiram. Lots of nines coming up.
Just when I feel I'm getting my head above water, another wave comes crashing down on me before I can catch my breathe. Not unlike some times I've actually had out swimming in the ocean. It's exhausting to say the least. This is the upper limit, just when things are looking up for us self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors can rear their heads.
A great book that I found extremely useful when I first became aware of my upper limit issues is The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. In it this affirmation is particularly helpful and has served me and continues to serve me. “I expand in abundance, success and love everyday. As I inspire those around me to do the same.” Proverbial mic drop right? It's so simple, yet profound. May it, (and this book, read it, I highly recommend it if you are or have had any issues with upper limits) serve you.
The 9 of cups however is not about completion (unless your wish coming true is completion for you of course), it's about wishes coming true and this is why I'm so happy to see this card. Worries and fears are cast away now, and it is a time for peace and harmony. This card comes up for me like a genie in a bottle, when it shows up, your wishes are granted. I am feeling a great sense of peace and relief at seeing this card and it's meaning for us this week.
It's been a challenging time for a lot of us, and we get to let go of that, at least for now.
This card invites us to move past our limiting beliefs, as a dear friend of mine once said, a glass ceiling can be like water, we can move effortlessly through it. This is not the time of challenges or struggles this is the time for dreams come true. If you're still going through some upper limit challenges/issues like I am, visualize the glass ceiling as water above your head that you can easily move through into the sunshine and blue skies above you.
Open your arms, your mind and your heart to receive the blessings you deserve. The wish you've held in your heart is coming true.
OUR COLOR INSPIRATION & MAGIC THIS WEEK: CORNFLOWER! FROM THE COLOR MAGE ORACLE BY BERNARD CHARLES
Cornflower: stand up to the elements
This rings true as this morning as my son left for his walk to school we experienced an intense cloudburst. Being a protective momma bear worried about my cub getting completely drenched I jumped into the car and went after him. I couldn't find him even though he'd only left a few minutes before me.
I came home and received a text from him saying “don't worry about me, I'm fine,” He must have sensed I was worried. Just as my son, a14 year old young man found a way to stand up to the elements today (and even had a change of clothes in his backpack) this color reminds us to stand up to the elements in our lives this week.
You are stronger than you know, and no matter what comes up for you, you have what it takes to get through it. Using this color energy of Cornflower blue in your clothing, food, surroundings, essential oils, jewelry and crystals will support you in standing up to whatever comes your way this week.
SOMETHING BIGGER IS ON THE WAY: CRAZY SEXY LOVE NOTES BY KRIS CARR
This beautiful message reminds us to dream big. I love the saying “play big or go home.” We are not here to play small, and as I like to say, playing small doesn't change the world. We are game-changers.
We are not satisfied with the status quo, we are here to live our dreams. Trust that even if you feel you've failed or things don't seem to be working out the way you wanted them to, the universe is always on your side conspiring to bring you what your heart desires.
As I told my son Jaiden today, things don't always work out the way we want them to, and they don't always look how we want, but we have to trust that everything will always work out and in the end we are being lead and supported on our life's journey to the destination we may not even fully realize we want.
Have you ever discovered after something you thought was a failure that an even better opportunity came up later? It is true that when one door closes another opens, expand your perception and be open to what comes up for you. It may not look how you think it will, or how you expect, it may be better than you ever imagined!
Love, light & magic
