Fiona’s 3 Questions to Ask Tarot About Your Business

I recently watched Fiona‘s Three Questions to Ask Tarot About Your Business video on Periscope. It was a wonderfully informative video and I did a reading for myself.

Fiona’s 3 Questions to Ask Tarot About Your Business

  • Row 1: What I need that I may have not noticed.
  • Row 2: What my clients need.
  • Row 3: Why am I doing this?

I wanted to pull more than one card so I decided that 3 will be my number for each category.

  • I need to butt heads with people and get my money! No more free or donation based readings! I also need to face my anxiety in regards to dealing with clients and let myself feel my emotions while connecting to my thoughts. It may be frightening, however, when I am able to handle my fear, I will also be able to use it to my advantage like Marie Forleo says
  • My customers need to stop being distracted by talking to those who are in discord with them and also causing the problems they are inquiring about. I need to break the toxic banter and provide them a sense of success which will give their self confidence the boost to move on and create a new future as they let the past die.
  • Why am I going into this field? I am building up a good foundation of work for myself, good work that brings me to life and awakens my spirit. Tarot gently kindles the fire within me, nurturing it as it matures. The full expression is not here yet, which is why I have not leaped into the field yet. Now is a little premature … I need to take a breath and know that more is coming

Have you asked yourself these questions about your business? Have you asked Taro or another divination source about it? Have you asked a reader about it? What have you learned about yourself and your business?

If you haven’t visited Fiona’s Modern Fortune Teller website, I recommend that you go there and read her wonderful articles! She is also on Periscope @tarotbyfiona and youtube : Fiona’s youtube page

Back to Marie Forleo, I recently watched her video The Power of Following Your Fear, which helped me interpret my reading. It is a great video and you should watch it also!


Cleaning Up & Self Care

On March 8 there was a Super New/Dark Moon Solar Eclipse. It was the First of 6 Super Moons in 2016. The New/Dark Moon brings New Beginnings and for new ventures to start, the ones that no longer serve us must be discontinued. It is not only rational but also an emotionally nourishing element of self care. Time to Clean House! Wherein I tidy up the discord and dust away the distractions in order to make way for more purposeful action and more conscious decision making.

Today I vacuumed, cleaned the toilets, swept & mopped the floors, and re-organized some things. I am so relieved to have my house clean again after a month of crazy activity. While cleaning, I though of the cards Clean it Up and Chop Wood from Colette Baron-Reid‘s Wisdom of the Oracle deck.

I like using it to ask for suggestions and lately I keep getting the Fork in the Road card.

I have been fairly confused about this one, as I have been Very active lately: became more public and active about my cartomancy, attended events and workshops on spirituality, consciousness, and divination, started volunteering at local non-profits and did work trade for several businesses and people, changed my business/income career focus, made new personal connections and closed some other. With all my activity, I have been so busy that I felt scattered and could not understand what “fork” or choice(s) this was referring to. When I realized that I needed to regain my power by drawing back into myself. I automatically cut cords, and got to work cleaning house, physically re-organizing my environment, and while undergoing this mundane task, I let my heart and mind slowly settle into each other, to think. Through meditative actions, my mind clears itself by focusing on the Present, the task at hand, the Cleaning of the my house, my living space, my outside, so that within me, the same shall come about.

Self-Care

  • To clean up connections, I find areas [of volunteer work and work trade] which are drawing too much time & energy from me and severe my connection. So there are no contracts & no commitments.
  • To clean up my task list, I physically list and mentally peruse all my dream projects and consider where they are in their state of completion, then I discontinue what is no longer serving me and or what I am Obviously not able to complete.
  • To clean up personal connections, I stop worrying about [un-involved] adults in my life (distant friends, acquaintances & co-workers) and let them take care of themselves. It is not my place to or my job to care for them.
  • To nourish the heart & soul, I make time to engage in activities I enjoy and cook food i love to eat.
  • To fill the heart, I make time to engage in bonding activities with family & friends who love me and whom I love. Together we grow, as our hearts feed each other and nourish the body and soul.

So I have reduced my volunteering and stopped all work trade that was taking too much energy. This gives me more time to focus on business/income related responsibilities and also more time for nourishing the heart and working on my network infrastructure. This may sound cold and technical, but as human beings, we Are social creatures, and thus need social infrastructure to build upon. It is vast, often unseen, and many of us benefit from this without even noticing or appreciating it’s existence. We may think of just co-workers and customers, but much of it involves the unseen work that women(and unappreciated workers) do (title of that post is due to how traditionally, women are given these roles). This extends out into the business world including All service industry employees, working behind the scenes to make sure rooms are cleaned, towels are washed, lawns are cut, trees are trimmed, your food is completed and given to you, and everything is ready to be used so that we can do Our work and make decisions without being distracted by mundanes tasks of the physical realm. As I digress I think of a book called How Starbucks Saved My Life, in which everything was taken away from the author in order for him to realize how much he had to be thankful for.

At the end of the day, when we fulfilled our responsibilities and completed what tasks we could, we settle down and relax, then we think of everything we have, had and want. Then we think of what is in our life, what adds to it, what makes gives us joy, all that is, big and small, and we are Thankful. It is in this moment of gratitude that we can truly appreciate life.

I leave you with a photo of an experimental strawberry bottom cheesecake I made.

Daily Reading and Reflection for March 3, 2016 : Trust Work Transformation

Today was a busy day!

I love using Marcella Kroll‘s Sacred Symbols Oracle Deck!
0302Daily Reading
Today is a day of Focused Work done for the purpose as Tranformation and Beautiful blossoming of my spirit as i Metamorphosize into a new creature, the one representing this next phase of my life, or current phase, when i shed the cocoon of the past. What grounds me is Love, from my surroundings, the divine support of the Universe, encouraging me as i bustle about my day. Ultimately, this day will ease my storm and all that has gathered inside the self and outside, around me.

It was a busy day: preparing for a job interview, meeting people who were taking some of my overgrown plants, and calling to discuss a freelancing appointment. I only had time for physical therapy because a tutoring client cancelled. I am Really thankful i was given this time to do physical therapy since it has been 2 weeks since the last time i worked it. Then right when i was wondering about money, another student schedule a last minute class tomorrow. Thank You Universe! After finishing my physical therapy workout i quickly ate three bags of snacks before rushing over to class. I find out that class is cancelled, but by the grace of the universe i was given a session with Rev. Danielle Marie as compensation (i can’t find her personal web page). This was my first time getting a reading from her and i was very curious since she is the founder of the Temple of Light. I chattered a lot when she first asked me about what i had questions on and my words traveled up and away from me. She brought us back and asked about why i wanted to connect to the 5th dimension. I want to know what to do when i am confused, feeling lost and or lonely and helpless. I want to receive guidance. I want to feel connected to the all that is.

She told me that the guides said my issue was Trust, and as i heard this i listed several external reasons as to why i could not trust the external. Then she brought me back and said that trust is an inner issue relating to the self. Do i trust that i know enough, do i trust that i have done enough, do i trust that i can feel ok with trusting others, do i trust that i can act properly when others do things that hurt us, do i trust that i will be capable of facing the awkward and painful situations in life, do i trust that i will be strong enough to break away from people who are toxic to me, Do I Trust The Universe to give me what i asked for.

Other points she touched on are Quiet Time & Patience: Can i trust, and wait for the Universe to give me what i have been working hard for, and not drop all my work and pick up something else to work on. Can i quiet my mind and patiently wait for the answer i seek to come to me. Am i comfortable with silence

At the end she let me pull a card (this is one of Stewart Pearce‘s decks, don’t remember the exact name)

Benediction

Benediction : blessings of support from the universe

Do i trust that i Deserve them? Do i trust that i am loved and worthy of them, and that they will come to me?

Can we trust ourselves enough to believe that we are Good Enough, that we are Better than Good Enough, that we are Unique to this time & place and that the Universe loves us and sends us love and support.

Can we trust enough to not block out the love, support and guidance?

This calmed my inner storm and i went home eager to cook and eat a healthy meal. While cooking i noticed pressure in my right nasal cavity, a periodic releases of pressure in that area. It could be the weather, something about my body today, or a representation of the clearing going on within me.

When i finish this i will get ready for bed and try this new meditation technique Rev. Danielle Marie also taught me 😀
