Reading on Personal Growth : Going Within to Heal

I like to periodically ask about how I can move forward and Grow. This is the reading I got right before i headed to a class/session with teacher and psychic medium Debora Hookey who along with some other members of the circle, gave me very enlightening messages from my guides. Specifically within my family … with whom i’v had some issues with … My grandfather came through and reminded me to let go of my anger and embrace forgiveness, which ties into another reading i did a few weeks ago on romantic relationships … I must grow and move past my current obstacles before i can move into a healthy partnership.

April Growth

I must ground myself inside, instead of going out to try and connect with the universe. I must be within myself, cultivate awareness of the partnership between myself, my spirit, my body, my mind, and my spirit guides who are linked to source.

within myself
within my body
within the chambers of my heart
within the whirling thoughts of my mind
within the journey of my soul

a song about a Hero plays in the background … I want to be a Hero … and I will be my own Hero in my story

I should reach out to friends when I am in need, instead of powering through and burning out by myself, they are there for me, spirit is there ready to give me messages that can help me move forward as I accept them with gratitude.

I use the Sacred Symbols Oracle cards by Marcella Kroll, for this, and daily energy readings.

A couple weeks ago i wanted to pick up my Halloween Deck again after a break. i really love Wisdom of the Oracle cards so much that i have been using them nonstop and now they are starting to become damaged at the corners. Anyways, i like the halloween deck and am glad that i picked it up for my reading on Romantic Relationships

Love & Forgiveness
Halloween Oracle Deck by Stacey Demarco & illustrated by Jimmy Manton

I call this layout the Cross of the Self

I asked:

  • What I yearn for?
  • What I seek?
  • What to know?
  • Who I am
  • What am I trying to be?

I yearn for a release from fear as I seek something other than love … stability and support that was not present in my past … I need to know that now is the time for Forgiveness to help heal the wounds from the past. I am unaware of my natural luck, and I keep trying to be Strong

After the healing and growth, that is when I will be ready for a fulfilling partnership.

We all try to be strong and face the world, sometimes overlooking the areas where we nee healing and care. We must face the world in order move forward, Spirit reminds us to always come home to the heart and be in touch what our soul wants … hidden behind the fears and wants of ego, and the complexities of the mind, our spirit speaks to us.

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!

Customized Spreads 1 : Daily Readings and Simple Yes/No Topics

Daily Readings

For my Daily Reading i like to use the adjustable 3 card spread, and then add a grounding card at the bottom and a crowning card on top. Many readers have spoken of this spread, I personally really like Biddy Tarot‘s description which can be seen in this youtube video

You can see examples of my Daily Readings in many entries, some of my recent ones are:

Yes/No Questions

Disclaimer: Yes/No spreads are often discouraged because people often ask either open-ended or improper questions that Spirit does not want to answer.

I make it a point to ask Simple questions or clarification requests when inquiring about a Yes/No question. A good example is getting the 2 of Cups in a reading and wondering Who should I talk to? In which I will ask for clarification as I list some people in my head: 1 Parents, 2 Friends, 3 Coworkers, etc. You can see how this is appropriately simple since I am asking a closed question and am getting simple answers.

How to Determine When Spirit Does Not Want to Give a Yes/No Answer

You after you ask your questions and get Validation, you ask the opposite: What about not doing ______? Or if you get negation, you ask: What if i Do _____? If you get conflicting replies (as in they agree with both doing and not doing something) then You are supposed to make your own mind because Spirit wants you respect your own Free Will.

This happens, and the frequency depends on what type of questions you like to ask. I noticed that when I ask silly questions I will get this.

General Topic Inquiry

I also like to layout cards in a line and assign a meaning for each one. A good example is asking what I should focus on? Topic 1, Topic 2, Topic 3, or Topic 4, then I layout the cards in that order and see which ones are right side up.

Triangular Format

Triangular Card layouts appeal to me so I will often let spirit know (i speak in my mind, sometimes out loud) that a second row consisting of two cards each will clarify each topic for me. I do this for both the Yes/No and General Topic Inquiry Spreads.

Example of a Yes/No & Topic Inquiry Combo with Triangular Format Clarification
I was staying at a friend’s place, she was sick, and had been resting most of the time i was there. So I was wondering if i should just hang out with her room mate (that i had just met) since she said she didn’t mind me hanging out with him.

I asked about 1) Hanging out with my female friend 2) Hanging out with her male room mate 3) All Three of us Hanging Out

who to  hang out with

  1. Since my female friend is sick, she is not going to be able to spend a bunch of time with me, nor is she interested in going out.
  2. Spending time with her male room mate will let a cord die off as we proceed with strength and nontraditional energy.
  3. All Three of us spending time together will result in Love & Harmony as we (probably mainly Me) stop worrying over something as silly as this and we let fate spin the wheel and lead us to our next adventure!

Love and Harmony wins the night as we all go out to dinner together and have a wonderful time chatting 😀 Something does change within the dynamic of our link to each other. I find out that my friend is interested in learning dance from me and possibly performing with me. I find out that her room mate also travels to perform and we all like travel 🙂 We joke about traveling together and performing. Then I head home early, without giving my friend any fun dance lessons because she is still recovering.
