Tarot card for this week ~ The 6 of Pentacles (6th – 12th July 2020)

Your Tarot card for this week is the 6 of Pentacles. This card is all about giving and receiving and finding balance.

The other term used in some Tarot decks is the 6 of coins. Very often pentacles/coins are seen as representing money, and while it can mean or signify money, as a reader I read the cards from a spiritual/intuitive point of view and for me the 6 of pentacles is about a flow of energy, giving and receiving and finding a balance between the two.

At first glance what you see in the card is someone giving coins to another but If you look more closely at the card you will see the outline of the continuing flow of energy between the two hands. What is given should be returned in some way to complete the exchange. This doesn’t necessarily mean if you give out money for example that you will receive money in return.

The exchange could be money out from one person = gratitude from the other and so the exchange is complete. If the card had been dealt reversed it would have meant a negative reaction one person giving = nothing in return.

Sadly in today’s world there are people who take the 6 of pentacles reversed to the extreme or ignore it’s meaning altogether. Individuals or big business whose sole aim is to take as much as they can for themselves and give little or nothing in return.

It is said that there is enough food and money in this world for everyone, that there should no need for people to starve or be homeless. We have stockpiles of food, class discrimination,”third world countries” to give just a few examples. This is the reverse effect of the 6 of pentacles. Maybe some of the leaders of this world should turn their card the right way up!

On a more positive note the 6 of pentacles (upright as drawn this week) can signify a giving and receiving of time, love, help, support, knowledge and skills. the list goes on and can be anything you can give to help or support another.

But and it’s a BIG BUT what would you expect the completion of the flow of energy to be?

Giving in itself to help or support another can be enough reward for some, the knowledge and satisfaction, the heart centred feeling that they have been able to help in someway for them is enough to complete the 8 of pentacles positive energy exchange.

We have seen some of the positive effects of the 8 of pentacles during the the current pandemic. The support for the NHS, people giving their time freely to visit people’s homes, delivering food or just clapping their hands at 8pm on a Thursday evening and in may other ways. This is the 8 of pentacles positive energy working in a positive way. People giving and enjoying the feeling it has given them and so completing the energy exchange.

The World needs more of the positive energy of the 8 of pentacles.

Your task for the week ahead…

Take time out for yourself, put life on pause for a few moments, how are you living your life? 8 of pentacles upright or in reverse?

Where in your life can you see the positive exchange of the 8 of pentacles?

Is there someone or a situation you know who lives or follows it’s path reversed?

What can you do, what can you change in your life or in yourself to create more 8 of pentacles positive energy flow?

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

Awareness – ask yourself?

Does this support the Life I'm trying to create

OUR CHOICES CREATE OUR FUTURE.

Too often we make life altering decisions without giving them any second thought or consideration.

We decide what to say, think, believe, feel, eat and do without taking a moment to truly reflect on the consequences of our decisions, only to be left wondering how our life got so out of control or ended up the way it did.

ALTER OUR CHOICES ACCORDINGLY

To create lasting change in our lives, we need to begin to look at what we do that prevents it, and alter our choices accordingly. It couldn’t be spelled out any plainer than this.

Personally, I’m thrilled to have the power of choice at my finger tips. What I have learned over time is that this power needs to be used wisely.

Look at all your options, because once you make the choice, it’s your responsibility to deal with the consequences. Good or not so, there are always consequences!

EFFECTIVE WAY TO DO SO

One rapid and effective way to do so, is to STOP and ask yourself, “Does this decision truly support the life I’m trying to create or is it a habitual behaviour that limits me?” Awareness can help you reclaim your power and your life.

The way I like to think about it is with a simple analogy. Imagine watching a horror movie alone, at home, with the lights off. We’ve all done it. The movie owns you. It’s terrifying. It’s all you’re aware of and so it has complete control over your emotions.

Now contrast that with watching the movie alone, at home, but this time with the lights on. It’s the same movie; you’re still alone. But with the lights on, you have more context. You can see that the movie is playing on a TV. You can see other things in the room that remind you you’re at home watching a movie. It’s still scary, but it’s not as bad as it is with the lights off because you have a bit more perspective.

So awareness of our thoughts is like having the lights on while we think – we’re still having the same thoughts, but with a continuous awareness of them, We’re not totally owned by them because we can see them for what they are. We have more perspective. They come, they go. They’re just thoughts.

When the lights are off, it’s very easy to get sucked into believing that our thoughts represent the absolute truth. We make a mistake and think, “I’m a bad person,” and it has the corresponding emotional and psychological impact. But with the lights on, we see the thought, and although we might notice that when we make a mistake we think, “I’m a bad person,” that thought doesn’t make it the truth.

Psychologists call this ability to step back from the content of our thoughts “cognitive defusion,” and consider it a much healthier mode of thinking than its opposite.

What I find interesting is

That this awareness seems to arise almost as a side-effect of practising meditation. By repeatedly focusing on the breath, and noticing when our mind wanders, we naturally start to develop awareness of where our mind is and where it’s going. And, of course, Andy encourages us to practice being aware during the day, as well. The more we practice, the more we become familiar with being aware of our thoughts, and so it starts to become second nature.

And that’s a defining moment. The psychological benefit is profound. Sure, life still happens, and things will still distract us, but when our default is to be aware of where our thoughts are, we’re more balanced, psychologically healthier, and very much less at the mercy of them.

Have a good day Wishing you health, peace and empowerment.
