It’s time to take a pretty serious look at some of the limiting beliefs that are holding us back. We start our week with the Goblins card. When this shows up, it is a message to us that we need to examine our fear based beliefs. The goblins are born of our shadow selves and they whisper negative talk in our ears. These are the voices that tell us that we are less than and that we don’t deserve to have what others have. It is time to address these beliefs and to release and forgive so that we are no longer hostages of self-sabotage and limitation. This card asks us to examine what we need to illuminate, and it comes to us with an opportunity for growth. Just for today, will you choose love? Will you allow yourself to let go of even one belief that holds you back? Take some time out to reflect: What needs to be forgiven and released so that you may move forward? Ask Spirit to help you, and remember that you are divinely supported and loved completely and fully as you are and as you are becoming.
This leads us nicely into mid-week with the Heal the “Ouch” card. Again, forgiveness is coming up. Remember that forgiveness is the gateway to the healing of the soul. Through it we are able to find and enjoy freedom from resentment, anger, fear, and negative perceptions. I’m feeling that for many of us this is forgiveness of self. We must understand that we are human and that because of that we are on a journey. We came into this world to grow and expand, and in order to fulfill that personal prophesy we will undoubtedly err. It is partially through our mistakes that we are able to understand what we want or don’t want; they allow us to make adjustments and to define our paths. It’s time to stop being so hard on ourselves. With this card comes that possibility of reconciliation with ourselves and with others if that is where our forgiveness needs to be directed. Raccoon reminds us that we have all of the resources that we need at hand to do so, and Fox shows us that we are adaptable and resilient: We can get through anything!
This is a tough week, but we are going to get through it with the promise of better things to come. Storm Fields lets us know that “This too shall pass.” It has most likely been a week of emotional upheaval as we’ve examined our emotions and subconscious limitations. As these rise to our consciousness, it is possible that we will experience a major release. This may come through an expression of anger or through a rainfall of tears. Be kind to yourself and nurture yourself through this process. Reach out and share with others so that you may have even more support as you move through this. Remember that the storm always passes, leaving behind it the promise of better days. The rains allow for our seeds to be planted and nurtured so that they may grow into something even more magnificent. Every time we weather a storm, we emerge wiser and more compassionate. Allow for the tempest to bestow upon you these precious life gifts.
