Advice of the Day: Find Comfort in Yourself

Embrace the Magical: Comfort
Vision Quest Tarot & A Curious Oracle

These two decks have done it again!  Both bringing the same message.  I can't help but laugh every time this happens.  I guess you could say they are comfortable working together. (ha!)

Today's message is about finding comfort in yourself and your spirituality.  Be comfortable in your own skin.  There is power within.  Trust that, through Spirit and intuition, you will find your way.  Moving forward in a new direction can be unnerving, but take comfort in knowing that it is the right and true path for you.

Advice of the Day: Slooow Down

It certainly has been awhile since my last blog post.  That often happens to me with journals, but I will not feel bad about it.  It has been a very busy time up until this point.  Searching for and buying a house drains more time away than one can expect.  But hopefully things will begin to settle now.

I have been participating in Kelly's (The Truth in Story) Embrace the Magical "challenge" on Instagram this month.  Today's word prompt "veil" is what lead me to return here after such a long break.

My draw for today was the Queen of Cups from the Raven's Prophecy Tarot.  This queen can see beyond the veil.  She is intuitive and can sense what is within herself and others.  Many turn to her for helpful advice.  This card encourages us to venture into our subconscious and connect with ourselves on a spiritual level, or to seek someone to help us do so.

I decided to draw another card and asked the Faeries' Oracle for guidance. What is behind the veil for me right now?  What am I not seeing?

The answer: Geeeeeooo the Slooow

He is right.  I have been so caught up in the rush these past months.  Even now, as we are settling into our new home, I cannot help but think of all the things we still have to do.  I need to slow down and stress less.  Things will fall into place in time.  Everything will not get done all at once, there aren't enough hours in the day.  I've been jumping from one thing to the next.  I haven't been taking any time to just sit with any given moment.  It was a much needed message.

More Than Gravity - Two of Cups

Valentine's is a holiday I don't normally get involved with.  I have nothing against the day, I just never feel the need to celebrate it the same way others do.  However, it is the perfect occasion to explore the Two of Cups.  

Here is a small collection of things that remind me of it.

"Love is friendship that has caught fire.  It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving.  It is loyalty through good and bad times." 
-Ann Landers

"I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation.  It is too long ago.  I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun." 
- Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Advice of the Day: Turn Toward The Light

My eyes were instantly drawn to the sunflower in this card.  Sunflowers often turn to face the sun so they can benefit from it as much as possible.  I have had a lack of energy and drive since the holidays. Perhaps I've just been looking in the wrong direction...I have lost focus.

The Sacred Rebels suggests embracing the light surrounding me.  In doing so, everything will fall into place.  It is about time I make an effort and change direction.  But first, I will have to look within and decide where I am going.

As my fortune cookie informed me over the weekend, "This is a wonderful time in your life to look inward for answers."
