It’s Been A Long Time

Now I’m coming back home.  I’ve been away now, oh how I’ve been alone.

I don’t know if you recognized those as lyrics from the Beatles song, “Wait.”  I’ve been listening almost non-stop to the Beatles channel on Sirius XM.  Their songs are timeless.  That particular song, “Wait”, speaks to me.  I am not a patient person and any reminder to embody patience is welcomed.

And I have been away from my blog for awhile.  I can’t believe the the last time I posted was in the fall of 2017.  I think that’s when “the shift” happened for me.  It’s taken quite awhile to shed the dissonance.  Normally I am provided with words at the beginning of each year that guide me — more spiritually than anything.  No words came to me at the beginning of 2018.  I spent the first quarter of 2018 in a physical slump which also affected my mental and emotional realms.

One day in March, I was sitting in my new “loft space”, purging files and throwing stuff away and a piece of paper dropped out of the pile, floating down to the floor.  I turned it over and two words popped out at me:  Resilience and Fluidity.

I was stunned. My words for 2018.  And let me tell ya…Resilience and Fluidity is the name of the game.

Do those words speak to you?  If so, how do you see them in your life?

 

 

Going Pro

3 cards Jill 8-23-17Once again, Surrender and Patience are key words to my question: “is it time to go professional with my tarot readings?”

Huge life lessons are among the 3-card spread above.  Surrender and Patience; Quiet Determination and Strength and a Blend of Intellect and Intuition come up for me to look at.

The Hanged Man in the position of “Where I Am Now”:  My tendency is to move quickly, jump in with both feet and then deal with the consequences later. I sort of did that earlier in the year when I created a website with the intention of including this blog as a part of it, but alas, it just turned out to be another blog (I needed to gather some more facts of obviously).  And now I don’t know how to merge the two blogs into one.  Sigh….Surrender and Patience indeed.

Strength in the position of “Where I’m Going”:  Quiet determination and strength is the name of the game right now. I can’t say that I’m very quiet much of the time in my determination — on occasion, yes, and certainly my inner strength is what is keeping me anchored. I love the image of the woman as a different kind of a lion tamer and the lion, although laying down is voicing his determination.

The Lovers in the position of “How I’m Going to Get There”:  I was a little disconcerted with The Lovers card in this position, but then this card doesn’t have to always reflect being in love or being in a relationship with another person (although it certainly can be).  In this instance, my intuition tells me that this card is about my relationship with tarot — moving forward professionally with practical magic.

And there ya have it.  Practical magic.  It’s the way I live my life, so why not how I read the cards!!

 

 

Surrendering and Patience

 

 

Seven of PentaclesThis card speaks to every aspect of my life right now. The Seven of Pentacles — seeds have been sown, the garden is beginning to fill in and now it’s time for patience…but not the sit back and wait for something to happen kind of patience. Rather it’s the discipline, diligence, accountability and being responsible for what is emerging kind of patience that is necessary. It is both scary AND inspiring…but mostly inspiring. Now I Am Surrendering…
