Tarot message- release and forgive 🌱

Transition reversed (death) crossed by Knight of Wands

Now is the time for inner fears to be resolved and released. The of energy of both 10/10 and upcoming full moon usher in a release of the past and embrace of what is new for us on our journey. Tens symbolize transition from what has been to what is to come. Think on what you need to let go, connect with those emotions that no longer apply to your life- accept them and free them from your inner being. This is a deep day that involves connecting with, accepting and finally releasing deep wounds so that a more complete healing can take place. These wounds may involve childhood traumas or deep rooted relationship issues. As you go through today, look on yourself with loving kindness and then look on those who have caused pain with the same. Forgiveness is the key for today…. allow this powerful energy of completion and the full moon to help you move forward.

Angel message✨

Angel of Belief

We linger so within pain and discomfort; hoping to find answers to problems that do not reside within. Putting down these sufferings can be scary and uncomfortable and living with them is the same… therefore, today, decide to find peace in your mind, in your thoughts. Release yourself, just for today, from the worry that plagues you, from the pain that has lingered within for so long, from the anger that dwells just beneath everything. BELIEVE that you are here for a larger purpose, BELIEVE that you are important, BELIEVE that you are more than the pain and suffering that has dogged your steps from ancestral traumas and dissention. It is time to overstand your purpose here… you are more than the feelings that hurt you, you are more than the traumas you have endured, you are special, you are good enough… today believe in the power of YOU…

It’s time to step into yourself 🌟

Materialism (devil) crossed by Queen of Swords

It is time to put down those things that are no longer working for you and trust your inner knowing. The transition of energy is moving you from where you were to where you need to be to serve in your highest capacity. Stop doubting yourself and allow your heart to release from those things that are keeping you stuck… thoughts, emotions, people…. it is time to embrace your voice, clear that throat chakra and step into the fullness that is you! The time is now….

Release yourself from judgement 🍂

Letting go means giving it up
Everyone marches on their own path
There is no right way
We must respect our journey enough
To follow it without question
Remembering that judgements made
By others are simply a reflection of their
Own questions about their own place
Within their own journey
We must release ourselves from doubt
And find peace in the knowing
That we are good enough

Abuse survivors and the need to control

Many common themes run through the lives of those who have suffered trauma in early childhood. Feelings of being out of control- issues in fact with control itself, are very common. Many survivors “pretend” they are stronger, more assertive and more in control than they actually feel… this mask gives a false sense of safety and security. Because it’s a facade, the pain of what happened is exacerbated by the mask that needs to be worn all the time. It’s an exhausting circle of hide and seek with the self and others.

Some people decide to grasp control through extensive discipline and reproach. Limiting of nutrients and sustenance through diet and exercise is a common way that unresolved issues with control manifest. ….Anorexia, bulimia, cutting, bruising…. all coping mechanisms meant to give this false sense of safety.

While the root of the issue with control is the silence that abuse engenders; the very idea of “speaking up” is difficult for some; especially if this method was tried before but the message fell on deaf ears.

Parents and loved ones don’t always deny an abuse story because they don’t believe it- the denial comes from their own sense of guilt and shame from being the person who “allowed it to happen”.

Denial and/or the lack of support-full understanding from those close create the feeling of a deficit within the abused person which leads to the desire to “replicate and change” the outcome of the abuse and subsequent reactions to the abuse by replaying it in present day situations with the hope that they are finally “good enough” to attain a different result. This is a self defeating exercise.

Trying to change a toxic situation into a positive one only fuels and triggers the toxicity already present. To change the situation, one must move from it.

Healing from trauma is a process that is constantly spiraling back to itself. We reach new levels of understanding as we revisit the pain to gain the extra wisdom hidden within.

We can only reach others as deeply as we reach ourselves. Survivors are the deepest healers because they have had to reach deep within themselves, to the darkest spots; soothing them with loving kindness, compassion, joy and freedom (the four elements of love).

~acknowledge, accept, release, repeat~

If you are a survivor looking for more, looking for a place of safety within yourself, looking for a divine purpose…. find your breathe… silence your mind… and allow the universe to reside inside.

With love
