Card of the Day
8 of SWORDS
Ponder this ...
• Am I truly ready and commited to change ?
• How does my holding on to and being stuck in the past prevent me from moving into the future ?
• What needs to be let go and done with once and for all ?
• Am I willing to receive what the future offers, or forever complain that it's not what I asked for (how I thought the future should look) ?
There is a vitality, a life force that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. ~ Martha Graham
We can no longer hide away or hide away from those things that no longer work, no longer fit, no longer serve our future visions and future selves, no longer are healthy, no longer are right or true to what we know we need and need to become.
Wherever and however we are feeling trapped, stuck, victimised, the time has come for us to be willing to take a long, hard, honest look at our part in creating, perpetuating, exacerbating, defining ourselves, perhaps even craving the drama from these things … and then recognise that we can do something to CHANGE the situation, we can walk away, it is within our power to do SOMETHING about it.
The question is : do we really want to, are we really willing to, can we accept the necessity of what needs to be done in order to put it behind us once and for all knowing, trusting, believing that a different future awaits us, but it has to be one of our own doing, our own co-creation, our own participation in the process.
If we are not willing to commit to answering those questions in the affirmative, then it is time that we STOP complaining, bemoaning our fate, playing the victim because it gets us false validation through drama and sympathy.
If we are willing to commit to what it takes to effect real and lasting change by taking the necessary steps and actions RIGHT NOW to leave the past behind and not only focus on, but bravely and fully step into the FUTURE, then there are many useful, magical, surprising developments and progress that will take shape over the next six months or so as the past disappears and the future reveals the many facets, possibility and potential that it holds out to us as a most sublime gift.
Are we willing to receive it, or will we forever complain that it’s not what we asked for and push it away ?
