Rising Up

IMG_2106The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies.  I could watch it every day and twice on Sundays.  There’s just a lot of symbolism in it, and of course, it’s a great movies for the innocents.

There’s a belief that there’s no place like home…home is safe…home is the hearth of creativity and healing, of patriotism and honor.

Well, just as the Wizard of Oz is fantasy, it would seem that the belief that there’s no place like home could be a fantasy too.  Anyone who has been witness to the goings-on in our beautiful America (my home), would not disagree.  There is no little man behind the curtain to hand out a heart, or a brain, or courage.

We are being beckoned by something greater than ourselves to rise up, to wake up from our dream state and to witness the heralding of a newer, bolder, wiser, more loving, more courageous beingness.  No, I don’t mean more tolerant — that hasn’t worked, has it?  No, I don’t mean more compassionate, we are already inherently compassionate beings.

I mean being in the place of spirit where Love, Truth and Life become the design and control of who we are.  We are the expression of God in action.  We are Human, but we are also Being.

Because of our humanness, we can be fooled once.  But because of our Beingness, we now know that the ruse is up and we got game. America is my home. And there is no place like America. She needs us now.  You in?

When you make the decision, there’s no need to click those ruby red slippers to know that you’re home.  You know it by every breath you take.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mystical Cats Tarot

mystical-cats-strength

My good friend, Mary Carol, gifted me with the Mystical Cats tarot. I have 2 cats and have always been a “cat person”…of course I love dogs and all animals, but cats are my fave.  There is something mystical about them.

I drew the Strength card today.  As aways, my one card draw always speaks some truth to me.  Today is no exception.

With this deck comes the usual booklet that gives the meanings for each of the cards and additionally their is “the cat’s advice”. The cat’s advice for the Strength card includes this:  “You have overcome your baser instincts to choose the higher path. Your courage and strength are deeper than you know. Draw upon them to carry you through any challenge.”

 

I’m needing to make some positive changes related to the evolving tarot side of my business offerings (creating a specific tarot website and maybe even a tarot Facebook page).  Being more of an introvert though I hesitate in putting myself out there in the world; yet my love for tarot is a passion whose flame continues to grow by leaps and bounds.  What to do, what to do?

The Mystical Cat speaks.  Strength.

Hear me roar.

And a special kind of thanks to my mentor, The Tarot Lady.
