Daily Divination 7-12-11 Today is a good day to strengthen bonds in your group – I CHING Kua 13 Leo, Cancer, Aries, Taurus, Justice, The Emperor, Judgment, The Star, The Sun, The Magician

Be cheerful and nurturing to others today. Companionship, Socializing and Group Activity is being encouraged.

I’m flashing in memory to an old notebook that I found in the glove compartment of my old car. As soon as I see today’s Kua 13 message from the I CHING, I think of this. Within the writing of that little notebook were directives to create a psychic development class. I smiled when I saw that remembering how repeated messages came to do so and finally it was created. Frankly, I’d forgotten that.

The words “group” always makes me think of the psychic development class group and the Kua 13’s main message of friendliness, mutual respect, shared goals and strengthening bonds. The message today is to remember that we need one another. There is special warmth that comes from combining forces, or gathering together with others of like mind.

Today is a good day (no matter what day you read this with the understanding of simultaneous divine time) to spend time socializing with others in friendliness and with good will.

The astrological archetypes of Leo, Cancer, Aries and Taurus relate to Kua 13’s message. Leo is about being child-like and self-expressive. Cancer is about a family atmosphere and nurturing. Aries is about having the courage to embrace inter-dependence. And Taurus is about being self-reliant while merging with others. We can now see the astrological influences and how they relate to the “companionship” of this I CHING Kua.

The Tarot archetypes that correlate with this Kua are Justice (fairness), The Emperor (achievement), Judgment (opening up), The Star (optimism/meditation), The Sun (Light, joy and creativity), and the Magician (magical manifestation and communication).

BOTTOM LINE:  Work in a spirit of harmony or shared vision with others today in the spirit of shared goals. Ask the self how doing so could benefit both yourself and the group, family or community.

Daily Divination 6-2-11 Relationships with Other Souls on Planet Earth! My Mercury in Cancer, 3 of Cups Story

Maybe it’s because I have 3 daughters, but every time I see this card, I think of them and the happiness they have added to my life. People do that if you let them. All relationships have the potential to add happiness or sorrow to our lives. We have a choice as to which of the two we experience or memorialize.

Besides, it’s not anyone else’s job or duty to assure whether our relationship with them is happy or sorrowful. We can choose to enjoy the company of others and to celebrate them or not; the potential is there either way. Even to the extent of someone who is sad or emotionally compromised and happens to be in our life, even ‘that’ connection can be experienced differently based upon our view of choice.

As it is with most other empathic people, there is a tendency to sometimes have complete strangers begin a dialogue with you about their problems or troubles. I used to want to get away from these people, but I don’t anymore.

I’m flashing to one memory of a lady in the grocery store who began a conversation with me in the canned tomato section.

She had a cast on her arm and began to tell me what happened and from there unfolded the sorrowful story of her life. As she relived her life backwards emphasizing one sad experience after the next talking about crisis after crisis, I smiled at her and simply sent her love and healing energy.

I could convey more about this experience, but wish to stay with the message of today’s card. The point is that even those who are distressed souls and who may not be fun to “hang around with” so-to-speak can add depth and dimension to our life—just like the happy, carefree souls can.

Awareness comes to us in the closest moments of unconditional love, self-acceptance and the acceptance of others. The human connections that we have with other souls here upon this plane, no matter if that connection is one of joy or sorrow, is potentially healing and consciousness expanding.

As we spoke over the canned tomatoes, I found myself listening less to her words as a part of me rose up and above us both and that part of me smiled down at the both of us lovingly. This happens when I work with my clients too. I didn’t try to take away her story or anything like that, but by the time we were finished with our connection and after she said, “I have no idea why I told you all that—I don’t even know you!” she had a smile on her face.

Somehow she seemed happier and even began to laugh a bit as we took our cans of tomatoes and moved along with our carts down opposite side of the aisle.

My connections with my 3 daughters bring me as much a feeling of soul connectedness and the same is true of my students and friends.

Yet, I’ll have to admit that the closer the connection—such as with family—the more difficult it is for me to handle things like I did with the lady with the arm cast in the tomato section.

I tend to want to engage and fix and advise and manipulate (in what I believe is a helpful way of course) when it comes to my daughters. This card reminds me that I could (and they could) benefit more by me being more like my interaction with the tomato lady.

The 3 of cups is about dancing in life to each moment no matter if you happen to find yourself dancing in the dark woods of sorrow or in an open flower-filled meadow. We must remember not to take life too seriously.

Our connections with other souls can be joyful no matter what state we find other souls to be in and the less attached we are to manipulating their energy and the more we can just be ‘present’ with them sending them love all the while, the more healing , joyful and celebratory our soul connections with others can be!

If you are a regular reader of my blog posts, you may know that I sometimes have a bit of difficulty bottom-lining some of the divination messages that are so multi-dimensional.

How could I summarize a message in one or two lines on this blog post for today? I already have and the message may be different for you than it is for the reader next to you. We tend to extrapolate that word, phrase, sentence or paragraph taking what we need for the moment.  If you have found something positive here to add to your day, for me that’s mission accomplished!

And with that in mind, I will close today’s post wishing you a day of being in the flow of high spirit!

PS– there always seems to be a post script!  I just realized that the forgotten astrological correlation.  The archetypal energy of this card is the same as Mercury in Cancer.  I will (due to time constrictions) use keywords here and they are pretty self explanatory as they relate to this post and the 3 of Cups.  Mercury (as most everyone knows!) rules communication and conversation as well as what we’d call lower mind, intellect and left brain.  Blend well with nurturing, mothering Cancer energy and you can see the correlation–nurturing communication. I have to fly for now…  see you tomorrow.

Daily Divination May 4, 2011 Can a Psychic Remove Your Blockages? Judgment/Pluto/Scorpio

 

The struggle is over.  The heart has won.  There’s been a rebirth.  A new day’s begun

Do you know those search word reports that some websites give through their own internal tracking of some kind?  I’ve never cared much about that, but some sites—like WordPress (this blog website)—will automatically lists that information whether you ask for it or not.   I noticed someone who found my blog did so by typing in the search phrase “can psychics remove blockages?” 

Today’s message correlates with Pluto, the astrological representation of the soul itself—at least that’s what the folks in the circles that I move within believe.  The inspiration for today’s cosmic communiqué comes from the tarot card Judgment. 

Release fear of deep soul-like examination, don’t turn away from the pain, look it straight in the eye and investigate it at its depth and do the deep Scorpio work (Pluto ruling Scorpio is the same archetype).  That’s what today’s topic is and that’s the area that our search term questioner was broaching. 

Isn’t it just like human nature to give someone else responsibility for our own well-being?  Can a psychic change, grow, progress, advance or evolve your own soul?   People engage this type of question in the medical theatre of their lives too.  They hold the doctor fully responsible for their healing.  The doctor “practices” healing techniques (that’s why they call it a practice) and facilitates healing—same with other practitioners, psychic’s included. 

It begs the question–who heals you?  I understand the temptation to throw money at doctors, healers, therapists, psychics and expect them to take charge of your life; but as we all know (or should realize), they don’t do it alone and if they are working in integrity they’ll let you know that up front.  They need ‘your’ participation and cooperation; it’s best to think of them as facilitator’s or perhaps guides of your own deep inner process.

I can hardly keep from tossing my head back in roaring laughter.  Can a psychic remove blockages? 

Oh, I’m sure there are enough unscrupulous ones who will claim that they can—just give them enough money to cast a spell for you or purchase their enchanted candles!  Isn’t it the lowest aspect of human nature to empower someone else to do the work that you need to do?  Some people will try to buy or manipulate their way out of most anything given the opportunity I suppose.  If some folks could pay someone else to die for them, they’d do that too!  

Hubble Telescope Image of PLUTO, the cosmic archetype of the soul

I’m describing the energy archetype having to do with today’s message which is the Judgment Card of tarot and Pluto.  Pluto rules Scorpio and the 8thhouse.  If someone asked what part of the zodiac has an association with death, there’s your answer.  Rebirth always follows, so really, there’s no death… only transition into another dimension. 

We all experience the parameters of who we are, as opposed to that which we are not, through the archetype of Pluto, 8th House, Scorpio and that’s another meaning of the Judgment card of the tarot.

Power and powerlessness, that’s what we’re getting at here and the tendency folks have to want to merge with or form a relationship with energy which (they believe) will take them beyond personal limitation. 

And there we have it—someone feels limited by a blockage and starts to seek a form of power outside of self to remove it. 

Makes me think of the story of the inebriated man who lost his keys inside the darkened bar but looks for them out under the street light where he can see better—you’ll never find them there! 

Can a doctor, therapist, healer or psychic help facilitate the process or point you in the right direction?  Yes, but they’re YOUR keys and you’ll find them inside where you left them!

Many who chose one of the professions that were just mentioned have done so because of a process of their own in which they were first the patient which motivated them to become the physician.  Thus, the common phrase, “Physician, heal thyself.”  (I know that phrase has various meanings, but for the purpose of this writing, I’m going with the one I just mentioned.)

We hear these stories all the time in which folks choose a profession because of their own need led them to it—for example, many psychotherapists become interested in that field of study after searching for solutions to their own psychosis.  There are always exceptions to rules, but it’s a common theme.  Or there’s someone who becomes a doctor or nurse because of a past experience of feeling powerless to help a family member with an illness—these types of scenarios.  Perhaps the individual who typed in the search phrase, “can psychics remove blockages?” will someday become some type of facilitating practitioner to assist others to change their limiting beliefs as he or she continues to search for the answer to their question. 

Emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical inner confrontations serve the purpose of creating a metamorphosis or transformation in order to propel us on the journey of personal evolution.  Releasing blockages has to do with penetrating the core of the soul to understand the source of “blockages” that prevent growth.  And there you have a descriptive meaning of the Judgment Card and Pluto energy archetypes.  

Negatively expressed, this energy can express as co-dependency; i.e. “I will pay you money to remove my blockage for me– I’ll pay you to cast a spell or buy your candle and give you my power to you so that you can do the work for me.” 

How transformative power is used depends on one’s evolutionary condition but the higher expression is self-reliance and using one’s inner resources—taking responsibility for one’s own healing and becoming self-motivated to reach into the depth of their soul.  In reaching for the higher expression over time one learns a great deal and is then in a position eventually to help others once their own transformation is affected.  But they will know firsthand that they cannot do the work for others; they can only help facilitate the process.

I “get that” about some of the students who take the psychic class. I’ve sensed that there were a few who thought I could wave a magic wand and presto-chango, you’re now a psychic!  Getting students to practice is something I cannot do… I can only facilitate the process.  Just like a meditation teacher or yoga teacher cannot do the work for their students, they can teach and the rest is application requiring the self-determination and effort of the student.  Can you imagine going to a yoga class and paying the teacher to do the yoga exercises for you so can receive the mental, spiritual and physical benefits?

Can we pay someone or ask someone else to do the forgiving that we ourselves need to do?  No, but we can talk with a counselor who will guide us to a place in the mind and heart where forgiveness is doable or possible, but it is only you who can do the forgiving. 

That last paragraph brings me back to a few conversations that I’ve had with my catholic sister this week.  She is struggling with the whole idea of going to priests to make a confession.  It’s the same principle.

Today’s message is about being willing to take self-responsibility, being willing to move toward self-mastery and employing facilitator’s (healers, therapists, psychics) properly so that a full awakening of the inner self can occur.  Don’t look outside yourself to do something that’s an inside job.  Be willing to go into the dark places in your soul/psyche to discover the hidden treasure.  We can help, but you have to be willing to see.

Remember the man who looks under the street light for keys outside—the light may be better there, but that’s not where the keys are located. 

They’re inside. 

Go within. 

A psychic, therapist or healer can help you get there…

 but it is only you who can do  the work!
