Spiritual Professionals: Your Work is Important!

Picture

I want to thank you for all the work you do, and remind you that what you do is meaningful.  You may never know the true extent of how you help people, but I am here to remind you that what you do has a positive effect in the lives of the people that you work with.

Here is the story of the first time I got a reading from a spiritual professional, and how she made a lasting impact on my life:

I remember her clearly.  Her aura gave off the warm aroma of essential oils and she looked at you as though she could see right through to your soul.

She was mystical like the color purple, but she was also down to earth like rich soil.

She graciously invited me into her home and brought me to her reading area.  With the spark of a match she passed the smoke of Sage over me.  When she asked me why I was there, I gave an emotionally charged, frenetic response.  Her Taurean sobriety was comforting to me.

The first cards she pulled were Temperance and the 5 of Swords.

“It looks to me like you’re trying to make something work, but it isn’t quite working for you.”

Immediately what came to mind was my relationship with my husband.  I thought about all the conversations we’d had recently where it seemed impossible to reach any sort of mutual conclusion.  This was extremely frustrating to me, being that he was (and still is) my best friend, so I couldn’t talk about this to the person I would normally turn to.

She started describing to me the Queen of Swords, “…emotionally distant…seeks the highest truth…presents impossible tests of loyalty in relationships…high standards of perfection…”

I knew that she was describing my husband.   She was good.

Then came her description of the King of Wands,                                                             “aggressive…intolerant…headstrong…temper…dramatic…”

Holy crap.  That was me.

She just described the way we had been communicating with each other at the time.  How did she know this?

It was in the cards.  And man, did she know her cards. 

She did not mince words, she gave me tough love realness and told me exactly what I had to do to stop my pity party.   I’m not sure what I expected or wanted to hear that day, but she wasn’t going to give it to me.

What she did give to me, was what I actually needed to hear.  When I got home I was able to apply all the advice she gave me.  Our conversations became more well-rounded, and we were able to see things from each other’s perspectives.

Not only did she help me to see my relationship dynamics more clearly so that I could better communicate with my husband…

…but my first Tarot reading awoke within me the deep connection I have to the cards (and eventually other forms of divination) that spans across this and other lifetimes.

To the woman who showed me that it’s possible to forge your own path in the world, thank you.  You’ve shown me that:

“You can go your own way!”

She wasn’t the first, either, and she won’t be the last.  I’ve been so inspired by the immense wisdom held by the spiritual professionals who have helped me along my way.

So whether you are helping someone to navigate their close personal relationships, or get the nerve to pursue their passion with bold confidence, you are doing great work! 

Thank you for your commitment and courage to show up in the world in a way that is authentically spiritually aligned.   Thank you for being you, and offering your truth, your practicality and your realness!

You are helping to transform this world for the better. 

Love, Nora

Weekly Reading April 11th-17th

higherself.jpg

This week’s reading is a bit different.  I started receiving messages for the week as soon as I sat down to meditate beforehand.

The first was to remember that our existence is temporal.  Some souls remember being in a space of no-time, and no-thing, that it can be quite strange to be back in a body in a place and in a time.  In these cases, it can be helpful to remember that old phrase “this too shall pass”.

The next message was that you choose what you receive based on how you tune your instrument; the instrument being your body.

It was recommended for all of you highly spiritual beings who are attuned to the higher dimensions and/or planes to practice being grounded in your body.  Balance this non-attachment, supreme energy with still being in this world.

Pretend that you are playing “Earth”…

You can still be taking care of your Earth self, but when you are aligned with your Higher Self, you can do it in a way that unfolds as beautifully as you can imagine…

…because when you actively use your imagination to envision the best life possible; you will find that there are some outcomes you can’t predict because they depend on something else happening.

Instead of making this like running into a brick wall in your imagination process, follow your vision, keep going and think of all the different possibilitiesSee how far you can get without incorporating any “buts” or “what ifs”, or “I can’t do that” or “that won’t happen” or “that’s not possible” or “that would take a lot of work.”

Try to get to the point where you really believe in your vision and can’t wait to see how it comes true.

Then, ask this Divine Guidance to come through your whole body and be practically grounded in your day to day life.  That way, when you come back down to Earth, you will instinctively know what to do to cooperate with the universe to create your vision.

This means you need to be listening to your instincts on a day to day basis.  If your instinct is to take a certain action, or not to take any action at all and get some rest, listen.  In these moments, your instinct is working with your Higher Self to help answer your prayers to create your vision.

I hope this week’s reading will guide you throughout your week.
