Ha! A Jumper, and one that’s none too surprising!  A jumper is a card that seemingly “flies” out of the deck during a shuffle.  Whenever a card jumps out of the deck, it’s telling you its energies and messages are extremely potent in the here and now, and that they demand attention. 

This one, I believe, applies directly to my thoughts on business, on my personal evolution towards manifesting dreams.  My “vision” of owning my own magick shoppe and becoming the “me” I see inside my own head as opposed to the “me” that is struggling to survive in the current reality.

And this card is no stranger to me.  She showed up back to back in August, two days in a row – once inverted, the second day upright.

I’ve pulled up the original post and find value for myself in what I wrote, so I’m repeating it here:

Visualization

Visualization

This is a familiar card, and I smile when I see her. She reminds us of the importance of daydreaming, fantasizing about what we want, allowing our mind to project images of the future we desire. If you can see something in the mind’s eye, you can manifest it and make it a reality.

It reminds me of a situation with Rhythm years ago, when he was around six or so. Back then, he was taking gymnastics and was an absolute natural at almost everything he did. He’s got a flexible, wiery frame and a tiggery bounce to him that gave him an edge in the sport. However, when it came time to learn how to do a round-off, he was stumped and kept falling. No matter how many times he’d try to do the trick, he’d flub it up and end up falling down. At one point, I called him over to me and had him close his eyes. As his eyes were closed, I instructed him: “See yourself standing at the edge of the mat, preparing yourself to perform the round-off. See yourself running down the mat. See yourself set the cartwheel in motion, and see yourself flip that cartwheel in the air. See yourself land on both feet, solid, and see yourself raise your arms in accomplishment. Watch it in your mind. Can you see it?”

I watched the boy’s eyelids flutter as he imagined what he looked like doing the trick successfully. When he opened his eyes and smiled, I said, “Now go do it just like you saw it in your mind.”

Sure enough, he mastered the trick on his next attempt.

This is a classic example of how visualization can cause creation.

This card is reminding me to see my own future the way I want it to manifest. It encourages me to daydream about the magick shoppe, about happy relationships, about financial well being, and success in all of its forms. The more time I spend visualizing that, the closer it becomes to being reality.

Here’s what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: Your clairvoyance, your dreams, and the pictures in your mind’s eye are becoming more clear and powerful. This card asks you to trust and to develop your visual skills, and to use them in conscious manifestation.

Card Description: The fairies know the power of conscious visualization as a tool of manifestation. By drawing this card, you are guided to sit quietly on a daily basis and to visualize yourself living a healthy, happy, abundant, and meaningful life. Visualize only what you desire, and avoid picturing that which you do not desire.

You have powerful visual skills, even if you’re unaware of them. Affirm daily, “I am a highly visual person.” Any blocks that you have about clairvoyance will begin to lift. Know that it is safe for you to see the future, the spirit world, and the truth about your life. By relasing any fears about “seeing,” your visualization powers will be greatly magnified.

Affirmation: It is safe for me to see. I am a very visual person.

Creative Expression

Creative Expression

 

Well, ain’t that like a hammer to the head? *LOL*

One of my biggest complaints lately – and by lately I mean for like the past year and a half – is that I seem to be creatively blocked – stumped, stuck, clogged.  The muse is constipated.  I used to write creatively every day – all day, in a myriad of genres.  And when I wasn’t writing? I’d draw (not that I’m good at it, but I enjoyed it).  I’d be creative in the kitchen, too – baking breads and desserts and all sorts of new treats.  But, ever since the divorce and my return to work, with the kids back in school, and dealing with life’s trials and tribulations, I haven’t been creative at all!  I did have a few insightful moments over the last year when thoughts of love inspired poetic expression, and did come up with at least two articles I can think of off the top of my head that I was pretty proud of, but by and large, over-all, I’ve been creatively closed.

This card says enough is enough… bust out the drano, grab hold of the plunger, employ the use of the roto-rooter, feed the muse her exlax and get on with the show.

It’s time to write again.  It’s time to draw again. It’s time to bake again. (uh… candle making, maybe? *grins*)

Here’s what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: Your heart needs an outlet to express powerful emotions. By drawing this card, you are urged to engage in an artistic or creative endeavor.

Card Description: The fairies sing, dance, and make beautiful decorations as a way of expressing their heart’s joyful energy. You, too, are urged to create an outlet for creative expression. Anything artistic or creative will make your heart sing with joy, and will allow you to get in touch with your true inner feelings and divine guidance. Painting, flower arranging, photography, sand or snow sculpting, writing, or composing songs are wonderful examples.

Your creative expression doesn’t need to be skillful or perfect. In fact, the most therapeutic types of creative activities allow you to “paint outside the lines.” In other words, don’t worry whether your creative project is perfect or marketable. Let go of all goals and judgments, and instead, create with childlike exuberance. Enjoy!

Affirmation: I am a highly creative and artistic person. I now allow this side of myself to be expressed.

Family Harmony

Family Harmony

I drew this card previously on June 23, 2008.

Well, isn’t she right on time?  Just yesterday I wrote a short post about how it was time to go get my daughter – and, at last, have my children home.  Rhythm left first – and before he returned, Stinkerbelle left.  Rhythm came home while Stinkerbelle was still away – and, as of yesterday at 10:45 a.m., we were all reunited.

We talked about the relief we feel in knowing our long term potential.  No longer focusing on a move, we’re now focused on how to turn our house into a home we can all be proud of and comfortable in.  We talked about the new school year starting and what the goals and intentions are socially and academically this year. We went to lunch together after leaving the airport – and, as we do when we three are turned loose in the world unchaperoned, we laughed ourselves to tears and drew attention to ourselves.  Nothing is more fun than an all out giggle fit in a public place with those you love most!

Ran a few errands after lunch, including a trip to a pawn shop to put a set of drums on layaway for Rhythm – a set of drums that matches the guitar T and I surprised him with Friday night.  On the way home from that errand, we talked about how to make Stinkerbelle’s dream of owning horses a reality.  We have the land for it… we just need to build fencing, a stable, and work out the vet/ferrier/feeding details.  I’m going to sell my mom the piece of property she’s on, and can use the funds from that to have things set up for Stinkerbelle’s horse.

When we got home, Stinkerbelle set to unpacking and cleaning her room, Rhythm spent some creative time bonding with his new guitar, and I took a much needed nap.  Though I’d had every intention of doing one more tarot reading yesterday afternoon via email, my personal energy was drained.  As much as I’ve hated postponing, I’ve made peace with myself in deciding I’d do that reading on Tuesday, my next day off.  After my nap, the kids and I found our comfy spots in the living room together and watched Enchanted, a movie with which I was completely tickled.  Loved it!

I also had a few issues regarding my mother yesterday.  There are advantages to having her as my neighbor, but there are times when certain lines are crossed – and I have to find a way to tell her that without upsetting her.  Before we’d even gotten back to Bowling Green from the airport in Nashville, my mother rang Stinkerbelle’s cell phone to ask if Stinkerbelle would go over to her house to color her hair as soon as we got home.  Stinkerbelle agreed and hung up, and I lost my temper.  I cried, really – not of sadness, but of anger and frustration.  I hadn’t seen my daughter in three weeks – she hasn’t even unpacked her clothes, and my mother had no idea whether or not I’d had anything planned – and without asking me first, she just assumed she could take my daughter.  We’ve had that discussion before.  Mom likes to take Stinkerbelle every Saturday to go run errands.  Mom doesn’t like to be alone.  But, Saturdays are the only day off I have of the weekend when there’s no school and I can spend the day with the kids.  I don’t want Stinkerbelle gone every Saturday.  I discussed it with my mom, she respected it for about two Saturdays, then everything went back to the way it was… plans were made without ever consulting me.  I’m going to have to put my foot down if I want to stabilize my own family.  My mom needs to understand that this is my daughter, not her best friend.

So, here’s what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: Your relationships with family members are healing. As you hold loving thoughts and feelings about the souls involved (including yourself), you experience genuine harmony in your family.

Description: Every person in your life is affected by your beliefs and expectations, including your family members. By drawing this card, you are counseled to hold positive and loving thoughts about anyone who seems to have irritated or hurt you. The more loving energy you send to each person, the more love will be redirected back to you.

Have patience — you are beginning to feel a great healing occurring in your family relationships. The fairies ask you to think of three reasons why you are grateful for each member of your family. If one person seems to particularly frustrate you, think of five reasons why that person is worthy of love. Send blessings and prayers to that person, and your relationship will show immediate signs of improvement.

Affirmation: I see the goodness within each member of my family. My family life is harmonious and filled with love and joy.

Inner Power

Inner Power

This made me smile… wide.  Isn’t she just radiantly beautiful? I love this card.  She gives me warm fuzzies and chilly willies all at once.

I’d mentioned recently that over the weekend, T helped me with a reading.  Since my return home, I’ve drawn some of the cards that surfaced in that reading, including the Seven of Swords and the Beauty Fairy Oracle.  Today’s fairy was also a part of that reading, and it encourages me to believe in and USE my own inner power to generate the desired changes and provide what I need. This is a card that makes me cry healing tears.  I needed this card today.  Not only is it perfectly synchronized with the Ace of Pentacles drawn this morning, but it also corresponds with my recent thoughts and ideas in regard to my goals, dreams and aspirations – providing what I can through tarot readings, preparing to move to a new house (which is still pending!), and considering the possibility of opening my own magick shoppe, not to mention the books I’d like to write.

Here’s what the guidebook says:

Card Meaning: You are now allowing yourself to experience and express your true power. The fairies ask you to affirm, “It is safe for me to be powerful!”

Definition: You have within you all of the power of the Universe. No one is more powerful than you. As a spiritually minded being, it’s impossible for you to misuse or abuse your power. Your guides will bring you opportunities to use and expand your power in ways that bring great blessings to you and the world.

Heaven needs the lightworkers of the world, including you, to realize and utilize their power. By drwing this card, you’re being asked to release any fears you may have about being powerful. You’re asked to keep your self-esteem high by honoring yourself, taking excellent care of your physical and emotional self, working on your dreams and aspirations, and spending time in prayer and meditation. The higher your level of self esteem, the more comfortable you will be with your power.

Affirmation: It is safe for me to be powerful! I have all the power of the Universe flowing through me and supporting me.

“Problem Resolved”

Problem Resolved

Groovy… but which one?  I seem to be having problems in a lot of areas of my life right now – money’s scarse and I’m behind in everything, I’m no longer content with my job, I’m having issues regarding love and relationships… it’s like the problems are in every category.  And what does the fairy say to me when I ask her which problem is resolved and inventory my problems for her?

“Those aren’t your problems, those are the symptoms of your true problem.”

Hmmm. One – more deeply rooted – problem that is causing this “ripple-effect”. It’s likely an internal thought process – a thinking pattern I’ve established, or a lesson I’m meant to be learning – but am resisting or taking my time with. But on the positive side, this card is showing that the problem is resolved, and it goes nicely with yesterday’s oracle of Miracle Healing.

I think some of it has to do with learning to recognize, accept, and correct my own imperfections without condemning myself for them, and the second part is in learning how to stand my ground in certain situations (i.e. shielding when necessary, knowing when to draw back rather than throw myself -and my heart- into situations that are not healthy, not allowing others to try to change who I am to suit their own needs).

In any case, this fairy offers a sense of relief – as did yesterday’s fairy – and I can rest assured that whatever issues feel like their challenging me or dominating my current circumstance are about to become issues of the past. I’m almost through to the other side of this “tunnel” I’ve been in.

Let’s see what the guide says:

Card Meaning: An issue that’s been bothering you is being healed behind the scenes. The solution is creative, ingenious, and is a joyous surprise for you.

Description: You’re on the cusp of experiencing welcome relief from a problem that’s been bothering you. The fairies want you to know that you have reason to smile, as heaven is working on a solution that is so creative that you’ll chuckle with delight at God’s sense of humor. Basically, it’s win-win for everyone.

You’ll soon be receiving good news, such as the healing of a strained relationship, an unexpected financial resource, a resolved health issue, a happy addition to your home, a new career opportunity, or a romantic proposal. Please don’t strain to figure out “how” this solution will be achieved, or in what form it will manifest. Instead, let yourself enjoy feelings of excitement and gratitude as you allow heaven to help you.

Affirmation: I ask that all effects of mistakes and misunderstandings be undone, both in the past and present.
