Shine Your Light

img_4010 

The message from the ‘Stand in the Light’ card is essentially – embrace your uniqueness – do not be afraid to stand apart from the crowd, and don’t mold and shape yourself to fit into another persons perception of reality to appease them.  

“Allow yourself to be true to who you are.  Do not try to hide your inner light and beauty.  You are meant to be seen…

Don’t avoid the spotlight or try to hide yourself nor dull your light to appease another or your own fears. 

Your true inner divine light and beauty is meant to help others. and the only way that can occur is if you allow yourself to fully be and express it…”

This message hit me hard because just yesterday I put a link to this blog into my Instagram profile, then removed it a while later because I was worried my ‘friends’ wouldn’t really understand my spiritual ramblings. 

This card is making me realize though, I am not here to worry about the people who don’t understand me, because my spirituality and everything I have learned on the (never ending) road to Self Mastery…

– which entailed a very long journey through darkness and the underworld of not valuing myself properly and making questionable life decisions –

is meant to be shared with others, to help them live up to their highest potential…or at least inspiring them to value their existence more, so more joy and light can be experienced.

So, here I am, standing in my own light and letting it shine forth, and not worrying about those who don’t understand it, because if I only reach one person and inspire them to open up and dig deep within themselves to find their true power and magnificence, then my work is complete for the day.

The other cards I received for this blog post support the art of manifesting your best life.  Looking inside of yourself to see where you could have (chakra) blockages that are holding you back from pursuing your dreams – career, love life, home life, spiritual life, anything you desire.   

Is fear holding you back? Is self doubt or lack of self worth holding you stuck in a bad relationship or a job that you do not love?  Where are you selling yourself short?  Do you have turmoil, anxiety, worry or other lower energies trapped inside of you?  We are here to live in a state of internal peace…the stress that invades human bodies creates disease…learning to rise above those self imposed worries and stresses, and practicing self care, bring back youthfulness and vitality into your human vessel!   We aren’t here to suffer endlessly…God does not want that for us.

The Nine of Cups card in the tarot is all about having your wishes fulfilled…the Magician card is about manifesting all that you desire!  You have the tools within you to do this, sometimes we just need to clear away all the dross that we have collected on our Earth walk thus far. 

the Ace of Wands is a card that represents being Inspired…Inspired literally means being full of spirit – remember that your connection to the spiritual, regardless of if you were raised with a religion or not – is a big part of manifesting and fulfilling all of your wishes.  Us humans are supported, you can ask (pray) for help or guidance, or just remembering to be grateful for this opportunity to experience the pain and pleasures of being human, is a good start {essentially, get over your EGO}.

We are here to experience true love, abundance, togetherness, community – helping and being there for each other, and protecting and honoring Mother Earth, learning, exploring, raising and guiding children and befriending those who may be lost or alone.  It isn’t about who has more of this or that, separatism and comparison will drive you mad. Don’t do that.

Start by doing what brings you joy and makes you feel light, not heavy.  As adults we always forget to play!  It is so important to maintain that light side when life feels heavy and monotonous.  Rise above the arguments or petty disagreements you may have with your loved ones, and you will be amazed at what bigger and better life experiences you can and will experience together.

it’s all about love and listening to your heart – don’t let your monkey mind rule the show – it is useful for logical matters but you get the best results when you temper your mind with your heart wisdom…

Happy manifesting!

Love & Light,

G

 

 

 

New Beginnings

 

img_4008

As we move through the month of October and into Scorpio season, it is a time to shed the old and make room for the new.  The changing of the seasons (it is Fall here in the Northern Hemisphere) signifies a cycle of death, a time to pause and reflect on what you want to manifest and birth in the Spring, and honor all of your experiences, people, things, etc. that no longer serve you…and release them out of your life and energy field.

It is important to honor and be grateful for what you want to release – because surely all of it taught you valuable lessons, paved new roads, opened your awareness to new levels, and made you into the person you are now.  Especially the hard lessons, the dark people that may have hurt you, or the habits that were self harming…everything has its season.

A big part of becoming spiritually awakened and healing/becoming whole is journeying into the underworld and into darkness…otherwise you wouldn’t understand the contrast of all that is light.  To be balanced individuals, we must embrace our shadow side and appreciate it for what it has taught you.  Once you acknowledge it and learn to channel it into good and positive energy, it no longer has power over you and can no longer push your life into chaos or run you ragged.

Scorpio season is all about sexuality, birth, life/death…it is a very deep period.  Take this time to face your shadow side and release all those toxic ties that are weighing you down in life.  Or, meet your shadow to see how you can use that life force energy to propel the positive traits and positive things in your life.   

Here’s to new beginnings and releasing all that no longer serves you.  It won’t be easy, but nothing that is worth it ever is.

Love & Light,

G
