I’m not sure if Victory comes first and then Success, but either way I think you get my drift. Often times with victory and success, the “big-head” syndrome starts and one’s chest puffs out and one struts one’s stuff, being all proud up in everyone’s face. That is not attractive to me. I plan on having a victory soon, followed by success. Then…gratitude. Gratitude for the gifts I’ve been given to share with the world.
Gratitude rests in the heart waiting to be seen, heard, felt, offered…and gratitude is followed by humility. Humility. Say it with me. Humility. When I Googled “humility”, the definition was “a low view of one’s importance.” Huh? That’s certainly not what I feel humility to be.
So I found this quote: “When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.” Yes. With humility comes wisdom. Truth.
May your victories be successes and may you offer gratitude back to the Universe and in return bask in humility.
I had this brainiac idea two years ago to combine my love for Nia and my love for Tarot. Alas, it was not to be until 2016.
My own Tarot guru (www.thetarotlady.com) did an Entrepreneurcast in 2015 for me. The words I took from her beautiful work for 2015: Dream, Create, Study, Learn, Inquire and Prepare.
My previous blog post alluded to my tapping into tarot by using a tarot card for each Nia class…well, the Universe had a different plan based on my Entrepreneurcast and my decision to do something more in-depth with Tarot and Nia! Voila’!! Tarot Tuesday was born.
Here’s how it goes: One of my students gives me a question. I do a tarot reading and then sit with it a bit and the final step before taking it to class is to find music to go with the reading….I call it “dancing the cards.” The actual reading takes about 15-20 minutes at the beginning of class. We all gather around enlarged paper copies of the Celtic Cross tarot layout. I do the reading. In the moment feedback is encouraged and welcomed. Then I pick up the cards and we dance.
To date, Tarot Tuesday has been well-received and well-attended!! SUCCESS!! It was foreseen that this would be the result…a lot of hard work, studying learning, inquiring of the cards and preparing the classes has been absolutely AWESOME.
In case you’re wondering, I use the Chyrsalis tarot deck. It’s a non-traditional tarot deck. It drew me in and speaks quite clearly to me and through me.
Combining Nia and Tarot, my two passions for creative inspiration and expression is nothing less than perfect…I made a decision and the Universe conspired to make it happen. Not in my time, but in spirit’s.
I am blessed to have a Nia community with open mind and open hearts. They are all my heroes.
