There’s nothing more super natural than the supernatural, the word says it all!
The dictionary definition of the word “weird” means “connected to fate,” so I smile and say thanks when someone calls me weird. The dictionary also gives more credence to our imagination than we do, hailing it as the bridge between the subconscious and conscious.
Isn’t it time we came back to Earth and stopped being woo woo, about the woo?
The only woo that exists is the person feeling all woo! Take the book of life (aka Tarot), one of the most ancient arts there is. The archetypes painted upon the cards are the gods, goddesses, planets and stars pictured for us to gaze upon as mirrors.
In them, we see our place in the universe. They are little post-it reminders of our soul’s path, an infinite reflection on the possibilities in and around us. Yet we test, fear and judge it. Judgment takes us out of the heart and into fear — the exact opposite of love. But Tarot is love from the universe in pictures.
We just need to understand it. With understanding, confusion, pain and fear no longer exist. We wake up; see clearly and discover our true free will. This is the gift the Tarot offers, IF we understand how to connect with it.
When we truly connect with the Tarot understanding of life skyrockets.
As does the synchronicity and magic we experience, the Tarot mirrors back to us the predictable patterns we get stuck in. If it has the power to reveal our patterning then it has the ability to make us aware of our patterning, and not only that – but we can ask how to change it!
Yet we don’t tend to approach it with questions that empower us, such as:
What do I need to be aware of?
What do I need to heal?
What’s the purpose of…?
What do I need to learn?
Most of the time the questions are:
Will he come back?
What are they thinking?
When will ___ happen?
None of those questions are internally based.
When the focus is on the external, nothing really changes — we just go round in our patterning.
Asking the Tarot fear-loaded questions breeds disempowerment and obsessive anxieties. This applies whether the Tarot is mirroring the fear, or the desire. Either way it creates attachment, imbalance, dis-harmony and disempowerment, a very slippery slope indeed.
I wish that when pregnant at 19 and seeing that my daughter would die, I had thought to ask why, what was causing it, and the best way forward. But instead I felt doomed, paralyzed by the fear of the prediction.
Remember, the Tarot doesn’t want your power; it’s you that ends up giving your power to the Tarot.
Instead of looking upon what is shown as a fearsome prediction, we can look upon it as a mirror where the questioner can see and understand their patterns clearly. When we take out the fear, it becomes useful. It gives us the clarity to raise our consciousness, leading to understanding and empowerment through free will.
The Tarot mirrors our cycle of life, it goes round and round, like our own predictive patterning. That is the only way The Tarot predicts and if we look at it as a mirror and change ourselves the reflection will change.
This leads me on to one of the most commonly asked questions:
If I see something in the Tarot I can change it, right?
Yes, you can, but only if you see it clearly enough to know why it is there in the first place and truly understand that. If you don’t understand why you are behaving the way you are then your consciousness is still relatively asleep, and whilst it is asleep it will continue in the same rhythm regardless of your efforts to change it.
Free will only exists when we are awake. This is where the Tarot comes into it’s own.
If you don’t understand a particular pattern then ask the Tarot to tell you about it. If you don’t know the best way forward ask the Tarot to show you.
