Certification Workshop with Marcella Kroll & Readings on Love & Career

This past Sunday i attended Marcella Kroll‘s Sacred Symbols Oracle Training Workshop. It was a very informative, helpful, and interactive class where Marcella explained the story and meaning behind each card, what tarot archetypes or suits it relates to (if any), what it could mean for different questions, such as what might infer yes and what might infer no. She went through all the cards, one by one, and before she moved on to the next card she would ask us if we had any questions, and answer all of them fully. I asked about reversals because I read reversals, which is not common with oracle card use. I actually forgot her explanation and can’t find it in my notes, but I know that she mentioned that she did not read reversals and I think she mentioned that we could see it as blocked energy. If I find something else in my notes I will add it to this entry. After she went through all the cards individually, she recommended some layouts and gave us some exercises to practice reading them with. She told us about the Card of the Day, and 3 Card Draw, she even read one for us so we could see how she interpreted a combination. Then we all did a 4 Card Full Oracle Spread on Career before partnering up and doing a reading for each other.

Here is my Career Full Oracle Spread:
CAREER

It is a pretty sweet spread which says that the Spirits give me their Blessings to pursue whatever career I have chosen. To move forward I need to let go of the stormy drama (stress and anxiety). What I should call in to assist me is drawing upon acceptance and surrender to change, letting the past die so I can move into the next phase of this journey. The outcome is cutting away of everything that no longer serves me.

I tacked on two more cards to see what else Spirit wanted to relay and feel thankful that they urged me to Grow and and reassured me by letting me know that i am Safe.
Career with add ons

When we partnered up, I decided to ask my partner Jessica to read about Love ie Romantic Relationships, I even joked that I had decided to ask her to read about the cheesiest most stereotypical and common question asked. Here is the photo of the spread:
LOVE

I really enjoyed and appreciated her interpretation! She said that Currently I am experiencing firey and short term relationships. I should let go of outdated messages about relationships and the beliefs they created within me. What I can call in the assist with this letting go is Grounding, being centered within myself so that I an know and thus call in what is best for me. The result is Transmutation, an upwards change in my energy and vibration.

Some other subjects that Marcella touched up on was to be Mindful of how we communicate, to speak and act with compassion so that we give the questioner the message they need or would help them the most in their situation. And doing that while remaining honest, and pulling extra cards to help clarify. I found it really interesting that she mentioned this because Debra Hookey has also mentioned this in her Psychic Development classes. That we, as readers, are there to Help others. Marcella also mentioned that since we were not certified/experienced therapists, we should be conscious of when to draw the line and recommend therapy or something else. For example, if someone asked the same question Repeatedly and never learned anything from what we said nor took any of our advice. Many of the readers in the classes I take with Debra Hookey actually have counseling backgrounds, degrees and certifications so the discussion is a little different there. However both teachers have the same message for all us students. To be caring, compassionate, and helpful to the people who trust us enough to ask us for advice.

At the end of class she gave us some cleansing oil so that we could cut cords with whatever attachments may have formed in our class and not take other people’s stuff home with us 😛 It was fragrant and felt very pleasant on the skin. Even though i felt amazingly peaceful and comfortable within her classroom environment, I am thankful that she was considerate enough to prepare this for us. I gratefully accept her teachings & cleansing and proudly show the certificate I earned from taking her workshop!

Site Creation! Learning from Confusion

Yesterday was the Full Snow Moon whence i set the goal of finally updating my website and getting the wordpress/blog portion to work.

Since I’v been having trouble getting the wordpress scripts to work with my original webhost [for the past couple months], i decided to scrap the idea of attaching my psyche blog to my personal site and thought about registering another domain and signing on to hosting with another company. I did a reading on this and as you can see below, the answer was Duh

new domain and web host question

Left Side: new domain name and new host Right Side: not getting a new domain or host
  • This is the most logical choice. Follow the structure that is available for you, and everything will turn out balanced and fair.
  • This will bring you out of resignation with your website and draw you into becoming active again.
  • Beginning new projects while not letting the past one go is the result of idealistic attachments.
  • The world is there but you will not see it as it’s energy is not being accepted by you.

Stop fighting with the problems and you will see your way out of the mental deadlock

So i looked at the price of registering the domain through wordpress, then i searched on google about wordpress and found out that there was something called wordpress.org. i was using wordpress.com, so i read about some pros and cons to each platform listed on this page. I went over to bluehost and compared the price of purchasing a domain and premium account on wordpress.com to the cost of getting an account with bluehost. After going to the second menu i realized that the cost was pretty similar and i could create multiple websites on there! So I decided to purchase hosting with bluehost.

I started web work at 11:30pm even though i had planned to work on my website as soon as i woke up (i was out and my desktop computer was in the house), so after importing and spending time picking a theme and customizing it, i called it a night around 2:30am and went to sleep.

notes

  • having a way to work on website remotely would be nice : solution use that secondhand ipad 1 i have stored away
  • email questions to webhost customer service as soon as possible

Thanks to

This day was a day of learning in which i let go of the turmoil and grew.

I will go back to looking at all those wonderful tutorials on http://www.wpbeginner.com/ to add more content to this site!


Thursday, February 18 Reading & Soulmate Confusion

I had a really interesting reading today, in which all cards were right side up and i got both Yin 陰 and Yang 陽! I like to use oracle cards and read them both intuitively and also with the booklet. I will use use the instructional meaning for the right side up version and then intuitively read the reversal, since most oracle decks, including this one, do not come with reversal meanings … in fact, None of the ones i own have a “reversal” meaning, not even Visionary Tarot which is kinda like tarot but a little different. This deck, Wisdom of the Oracle Divination Cards, does come with a massive and very descriptive instructional booklet though 😀 . So far i have ignored the entire introduction and just looked up a few meanings while i read with random spreads. I have been using familiar spreads as often as my own spreads lately, and i will write another post about “creating” your own spreads: more like thinking “hey i want this card in this position to mean this” and then shuffling and laying them out that way … it really is that easy.

Here is my collage of the main Daily reading in the center with some additional celtic crosses read from the bottom of the deck or “shadow side” as some online sources call it. ( i am currently working on a post about my customized spreads … …. and collecting photos for them 🙂 … preview notes: i like to ask yes or no questions even though it is highly discouraged among most readers … it really depends on What you are asking yes/no for, if it is “appropriate” and whether or not the spirits actually Want to give you an answer … if they Don’t want to answer, then they say Both yes & no, which has happened to me)

…..image taken down because i do not have permission to post images of the Wisdom of the Oracle Deck……

Allow, Feel, Know and then Act and Create

I keep going around in circles because I have unfinished business to attend to. Now is a time of regeneration, to revive and rebuild my unfinished symphonies. Be receptive of what comes, allowing information and events to flow into my life, and then act upon them.

Right now is a time of acceptance, so let the tension go, and soon I will be receiving help. In the distant past I was happy, then i went through some difficulty accepting a message. In the future I will deal with feelings of being lost and alone. An issue that I should be dealing with is my conflicted feelings surrounding exchanging gifts equitably. Now am not following the lead of others and also not mending wounds that need to be healed, i am worried about a lack of reward but all my hard work but I am headed towards a mother load of Treasure and pay off!

Personal Notes
I have issues with feeling taken advantage of, Really being taken advantage of, trying really hard to make clients happy with my ventures, only to face a bunch of hagglers who want to pay me less than minimum wage and don’t even consider the fact that i have to pay my bills and manage all this time i’m putting into what i give … right now i gave up trying to get paid for my “work” and mostly volunteer with organizations or do skill trade with people who Appreciate my work and are unable to pay for it with money. However, I do receive a Really nice skill trade and i Really appreciate what they give in exchange.
Sometimes i want to keep giving things to friends and they will neither want nor need what i want to offer … plants, advice, food, assistance … it gets silly … on my part … and then a good friend will remind me that it is not my business to worry about others as i must prioritize myself and my daughter so that we are both taken care of first before i attempt to assist others. I like giving, I like helping others, and i have a ton of info in my head that spills out of my mouth when i chat. However, I need to remember to not lecture people and overload with with random info they are not interested in hearing. Even if it may help them, if they don’t want to hear it, they won’t, and it Won’t help them.

(back to the reading)
Also, there is a change in the wind and when I can look at everything from a distance, hence gaining some perspective, I will have a better understanding of everything. It is best to be poised & ready! In the past I had difficulty finding the truth, then I had trouble aligning myself with the divine timing that was available (bad time management!!). The Future brings difficulty resting or sleeping. Now I am in resonance with soulmate energy as it is time to go and move into the future. I fear not having gone as far as i needed to with my current projects, and hence my reluctance with dropping some. However, I am on my way to meeting and being amongst my people!

personal notes
i have been sleeping very little and or very late … usually a combination of both … as i stay up late catching up to all my work and whatever else is needed to complete my projects … last week i stayed up late dancing and working on choreography for a dance competition that was on February 13 and 14. I didn’t place but it was FUN and a Great experience in general 😀 … this weekend I will be out learning about intuitive reading and new age spirituality.

Soul Mate Confusion
So the night before (or morning of lol) the 18th i had a very restless dream where i met an ex (the same guy who gave me a coffin in that last post) who was now dating someone else and for some reason all three of us kept hanging out. I was glad that the ex was in happy relationship with this new woman (and not interested in him at all) but i didn’t want to constantly be around them, it was Uncomfortable. So this day i did many other readings and the soulmate cards in two different oracle decks kept popping up and i was perplexed and wondering why?? Since i did and confirmed that 1) We are not soul mates 2) We already cut cords on BOTH ends. THEN i did a reading asking if this person was just how my psyche represented my soulmate and i got YES which made me feel SO Relieved!!!

SO the main thing about Soul Mate Confusion i wanted to write here is that our psyche will mix fantasy with reality, past with the murmurs of the future, and create fantastical illusions that although elude to a truth, are not 100% logical/reasonable and may be difficult to understand. Like being in sync with soul mate energy and then see an ex in a dream … Anyone else have had their psyche use images of people from the past to represent certain archetypes (like a soul mate, twin flame or teacher) in a Confusing way in visions and or dreams?


Daily Reading for Friday February 19

2016 February 19

This day is about Growth. I may feel ungrounded at times but the ancient magic is supporting me. What grounds me is Fire and what crowns me is releasing and escaping from jealousy. To not be jealous of others and also not catch or be bothered by the jealousy of others.

Time to meditate as the spirits support and guide me. I may have difficulty harnessing my power but a breakthrough is coming as I am on a Luck Streak! My environment conceals things from me as I wonder about the flow of energy from talismans I have created to symbolize manifestation. Wonder about possible improper energy flow regarding my crystals that could be more fluid. The outcome is a time of Work as I learn a valuable lesson which strengthens my foundation.

Now I am having difficulty cutting certain cords and am faced with difficulty pushing negativity out of my being. What crowns me is accepting gifts where nothing is asked in return, knowing there is no “catch” to this generous offer. Elements of my past that influence me are messages, and not connecting with the outside world. In the future I may encounter a difficulty with cleansing. Now I am not seeing the full manifestation of my work, but I am in a mode of Logical reasoning and wonder whether I am expressing enough gratitude today. The outcome is Love unconditional & universal love that embraces my soul!

This was the day i finally wrote another entry in my blog after delaying. Writing more shows and assists in my Growth. It was an important day as I finally decided on whether or not i would be going to the Conscious Life Expo this weekend. Unsure of the availability of childcare, a place to spend the night, and whether or not I would see virtual and real life friends on this trip.

Looking back at the weekend, I am glad that I went and Thankful for my experiences this wonderful weekend. I believe the energy of Growth was expressed this Entire weekend.
