Spiritual Tarot & Guidance 21st ~ 27th December 2020

The cards for this week are: The Knight of Cups, 7 of Wands, Knight of Pentacles, Fire, Conflict & Defeat.

Hello everyone as always I hope this weeks reading finds you safe and well!

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, loving and caring Christmas. I know this Christmas is going to be very different to the ones that we have become accustomed to, but we can all still choose to approach this Christmas from it’s true spiritual meaning. That is being more Loving, Compassionate and Caring towards one another.

The first card drawn for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is the Knight of Cups. The Knight of Cups in the general meaning of Tarot is the true romantic however I feel it his other qualities that the spirit and angelic realms are drawing our attention to. The Knight of Cups is in touch with his emotions and Intuition and is also kind and caring towards others. I feel spirit are drawing our attention to his other qualities too. The Knight of Cups when he makes decisions does so from the heart, he uses his intuition, how he “feels” about a situation rather than just what he “thinks” about it.

Our second card is the 7 of Wands. As you can see from the image he is in a position where he is having to stand his ground, defending both his achievement and beliefs. Sadly in this world there is always conflict that is often caused by the differences of peoples beliefs. What maybe true to one person is not always true for another. There are a great many people who make decisions and take action on what they “think” is right based on the information they have been given, often ruled by their head, rather than using the gift of intuition like the Knight of Cups and asking themselves “does it feel right”.

The third card in this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading is another Knight, The Knight of Pentacles. This Knight is someone who is hardworking, he decides carefully on his plan of action after considering all of the options open to him. He has his vision in mind of what he wants to achieve. he is meticulous in his approach checking every detail and sticks relentlessly to his path.

Our first of the two Oracle cards for this week is the card of Fire. If you look at the word underneath it says Passion, we often describe passion as “being on fire” having a “creative spark”. Sadly some have lost this, more so over the past year of 2020. Some quite understandably have lost their spark and fire, their passion all together, others have just fallen in line confused by all the information and misinformation that they have been bombarded with and just followed the crowd, pushed aside their own feelings, their own intuition and chosen to “fit in” rather than stand for what they “feel” is right.

Our last card for this weeks Spiritual Tarot and Guidance reading is Conflict and Defeat. This card again chosen, as all the cards are, with help and guidance from the spirit and angelic realms and it fits nicely alongside the card of Fire and all the other cards in this weeks reading. The Conflict and Defeat card represents learning and change and how we respond to the changes. The need to show sensitivity towards people and the conditions and situations that surround us. In the deck this card is from it is one of the “Mental” cards, so again signifies the use of using thought alone, rather than sensitivity and our Intuitive abilities.

So what is the message from the Spirit and the Angelic Realms for this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading?

I feel their message this week is that there is a real need for more love, sensitivity, compassion, and understanding in the world. We are fast approaching a time of celebration that symbolises and represents those very qualities. In fact this weeks reading covers that very period. With all the restrictions that have been placed on our lives over the past year, I feel that the spirit and angelic realms are asking for us to put our differences aside whatever our political views or other beliefs may be.

They are asking us to adopt the qualities of the Knight of Cups, to get in touch with our emotions, our intuition and be more kind and caring towards one another. We can then avoid the need to place ourselves or anyone in the situation of the 7 of Wands. We can then if we choose to follow their guidance adopt the qualities of the Knight of Pentacles and the Fire card and choose to approach the Festive Season with careful planning and clear vision, passion, spark and creativity whilst keeping in mind the various restrictions and rules that are in place

In doing this we will also be taking on board the message behind the card of Conflict and Defeat. We will be learning to respond creatively to the constant changes and conditions that surround us with intuition and feeling rather than just acting on thought and impulse alone.

The energy and feeling that I have received from the Spirit and Angelic realms throughout this reading is one of the urgent need for more LOVE, SUPPORT, COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING and UNITY across the world, and not just for the festive period we call Christmas.

I hope that this weeks Spiritual Tarot & Guidance reading has helped and given you support in some way. The messages from the Spiritual & Angelic realms are always bought to you on an energy of love, compassion and understanding.

I will say it again as I always do, take some time out for yourself, It is allowed !”

Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.

The Psychic Tarot – John Holland

Ego – The False Centre

The ego is not individual. Ego is a social phenomenon - it is society, its not you. But it gives you a function in the society, a hierarchy in the society.

Ego – The False Centre

The ego is not individual. Ego is a social phenomenon – it is society, its not you. But it gives you a function in the society, a hierarchy in the society. And if you remain satisfied with it, you will miss the whole opportunity of finding the self.

And that’s why you are so miserable.

With a plastic life, how can you be happy?

With a false life, how can you be ecstatic and blissful? And then this ego creates many miseries, millions of them.

You cannot see, because it is your own darkness. You are attuned to it.

Have you ever noticed that all types of miseries enter through the ego? It cannot make you blissful; it can only make you miserable.

Ego is hell.

Whenever you suffer, just try to watch and analyze, and you will find, somewhere the ego is the cause of it. And the ego goes on finding causes to suffer.

You are an egoist, as everyone is. Some are very gross, just on the surface, and they are not so difficult. Some are very subtle, deep down, and they are the real problems.

This ego comes continuously in conflict with others because every ego is so unconfident about itself. Is has to be – it is a false thing. When you don’t have anything in your hand and you just think that something is there, then there will be a problem.

If somebody says, “There is nothing,” immediately the fight will start, because you also feel that there is nothing. The other makes you aware of the fact.

Ego is false, it is nothing.

That you also know.

How can you miss knowing it? It is impossible! A conscious being – how can he miss knowing that this ego is just false? And then others say that there is nothing – and whenever the others say that there is nothing they hit a wound, they say a truth – and nothing hits like the truth.

You have to defend, because if you don’t defend, if you don’t become defensive, then where will you be?

You will be lost.

The identity will be broken.

So you have to defend and fight – that is the clash.

A man who attains to the self is never in any clash. Others may come and clash with him, but he is never in clash with anybody.

It happened that one Zen master was passing through a street. A man came running and hit him hard. The master fell down. Then he got up and started to walk in the same direction in which he was going before, not even looking back.

A disciple was with the master. He was simply shocked. He said, “Who is this man? What is this? If one lives in such a way, then anybody can come and kill you. And you have not even looked at that person, who he is, and why he did it.” The master said, “That is his problem, not mine.”

You can clash with an enlightened man, but that is your problem, not his. And if you are hurt in that clash, that too is your own problem. He cannot hurt you. And it is like knocking against a wall – you will be hurt, but the wall has not hurt you.

The ego is always looking for some trouble. Why? Because if nobody pays attention to you, the ego feels hungry. It lives on attention.

So even if somebody is fighting and angry with you, that too is good because at least the attention is paid. If somebody loves, it is okay. If somebody is not loving you, then even anger will be good. At least the attention will come to you. But if nobody is paying any attention to you, nobody thinks that you are somebody important, significant, then how will you feed your ego?

Other’s attention is needed.

In millions of ways you attract the attention of others; you dress in a certain way, you try to look beautiful, you behave, you become very polite, you change. When you feel what type of situation is there, you immediately change so that people pay attention to you.

This is a deep begging.

A real beggar is one who asks for and demands attention. And a real emperor is one who lives in himself; he has a center of his own, he doesn’t depend on anybody else.

Buddha sitting under his bodhi tree…if the whole world suddenly disappears, will it make any difference to Buddha? – none. It will not make any difference at all. If the whole world disappears, it will not make any difference because he has attained to the centre.

But you, if the wife escapes, divorces you, goes to somebody else, you are completely shattered – because she had been paying attention to you, caring, loving, moving around you, helping you to feel that you were somebody. Your whole empire is lost, you are simply shattered. You start thinking about suicide. Why? Why, if a wife leaves you, should you commit suicide? Why, if a husband leaves you, should you commit suicide? Because you don’t have any center of your own. The wife was giving you the center; the husband was giving you the center.

This is how people exist. This is how people become dependent on others. It is a deep slavery. Ego HAS to be a slave. It depends on others. And only a person who has no ego is for the first time a master; he is no longer a slave. Try to understand this.

And start looking for the ego – not in others, that is not your business, but in yourself. Whenever you feel miserable, immediately close you eyes and try to find out from where the misery is coming and you will always find it is the false center which has clashed with someone.
