My thoughts aren’t always positive.
I remember years ago in my Tarot adventure, so eager was I to gain practice reading the cards, that I gave a ‘shout-out’ to a Tarot group I belonged to at the time…
That was met with a chorus of: “Fab idea! Let’s email each other questions!”
So I did.
I racked my brain to come up with questions for twenty fellow Tarot students, and fired them off.
And immediately had two replies – and two Tarot readings to do.
I constructed spreads to suit the questions, sent out a prayer to the universe….and got to work.
And two fellow students did the same.
We quickly exchanged impressive readings.
Where were all my other comrades keen to exchange readings?
I had cleared my weekend in preparation for the deluge!
But however many times I refreshed my email…
So what did I do?
The weekend swirled by in a blur of anxiety, with questions of my self-worth spiralling out of control until I had denigrated my ability as a Tarot reader to zilch.
And in an effort to find some calm, I pulled a Tarot card for myself:
The Seven of Cups.
And really panicked.
What did this mean?
The Seven of Cups…..choices, too many choices……dissipated focus……wasting time on daydreams…….turning fantasies into reality……. seeing things from a new perspective……changing our way of viewing things…
That light-bulb moment.
What had I been focusing on?
That people were not emailing me with their questions.
That I wasn’t getting practice.
That I had wasted a whole weekend.
And the universe was responding beautifully to my vibrations.
But I needed practice!
You know what? I had exchanged two readings.
And that was awesome.
From there it was just a hop, skip and a jump to a whole slew of life-affirming thoughts.
And oh boy, what a beautiful day it is out there today.
I hadn’t even noticed the sun was shining.
And my phone rang.
A friend wanted a Tarot reading.
What a wonderful world.
