Sometimes the hardest things for us to do is to walk away, but this guidance exists inside the inner wisdom of all of us. A lot of life’s stresses is others bringing the drama to us when the only thing we wanted to do is get through the day, but sometimes it’s brave to look at these kinds a situations as lessons to be learned instead of nuisances. Walking away from a conflict is a sign of strength, not a sign of weakness.
If you have come across this post today, know that there is nothing to be gained by fighting in this instance. The Universe has placed this obstacle in your path, not to test you, but to help you learn and grow. It’s okay to walk away and bless everyone behind you.
Love and Light,
Card Deck: Angels, Gods, and Goddesses by Toni Carmine Salerno
I was so excited to find myself a beautifully melanated deck of Tarot cards. When I first started reading Tarot, I found myself annoyed with the lack of diversity. I was so aggravated in fact that I found a brown colored pencil and started coloring things in. I still was unsatisfied, because it felt ‘unauthentic’ and went out to purchase some decks. Next thing I knew I was swimming in a sea of Tarot and Oracle decks, because I was so obsessed with finding one black person! I came across the Vision Quest tarot deck and used that for a while because it had Native Americans and it was, ‘as close as I could get,’ but I still couldn’t relate to the deck. When you can’t relate to the deck you are learning with I feel that it makes development more challenging and time consuming. How could I relate to the struggles of Becky with blonde hair and blue eyes when I was a black woman with nappy hair from New York?
We are making strides in the world, but we are still behind and the New Age and Tarot communities. Out of all of the decks out there, this is the only fully melanated deck I’ve seen our heard about. It’s important for decks to show people of all shapes, colors, and sizes. If I can’t relate to the decks, how do I expect my clients to relate to their readings?
Card Deck: Ghetto Tarot by Alice Smeets
Alice Smeets does an amazing job in capturing the beauty of Haitian faces in her photography.
You must nurture your inner self in order for your Spirit to grow. You are the Gardener and you must nurture your own seeds. By taking the time to look within, you become one with yourself. You never see matter in nature rush – a tree takes hundreds of years to grow. You cannot relish the fruit without waiting patiently for the seed to produce a tree.
This card has been drawn today to remind you that finding a good relationship is less about what us happening in the physical world and more about what is happening to you personally. You must tend to yourself, nurture yourself, and allow yourself to grow. This process will help teach you to love every part of yourself, which will then attract a partner. The Divine Masculine reminds you that you are not weak for needing to nurture yourself, or for being in touch with your sensitive side. Review the ways you are too hard on yourself and learn to love those areas. It is after this acceptance that you will find love.
Love and Light,
Card Deck: True Love Reading Cards by BelindaGrace
I read tarot not in the hopes that everyone will read it or come to me, but in the hopes that the one person that is in desperate need of a message will find it. It is because of this reason that messages like the one that has come up today is so meaningful.
You are on a new pursuit and it’s going to go well. You’ve got nothing but luck and cosmic energy behind you and if channeled correctly you will go far. Prepare yourself, as things will happen rapidly. You’re new passions and pursuits will manifest.
We live in a world of infinite potentialities, unlimited choices, and endless possibilities. Don’t believe me? If you got out of bed today then you made a choice. I hear your voice. ‘But Rainn, I had to go to work today or I had to go to school.’ That may be the case, but you still made a choice. You could have made a decision not to go – although probably a bad choice, it’s still a choice. You chose to brush your teeth. You chose to eat. And most importantly you chose to live. We sometimes feel helpless – like we are stuck doing the motions that society mandates that we do, but we do have the ability to break free of the chains that bind us. It is just up to us to decide if we are willing to take the first step – to make the choice to be courageous.
Love and Light,
